    they say LOA is basing your thoughts on what you want.

    so applying that knowledge to religion.

    God - Peace and satan - evil
    good emoctions bad emoctions

    who would win if two people were using the law of attraction

    one fighting for peace and one fighting for power.

    Does law of attaction help us understand that there is a higher power than our spirits or even help us expand our knowledge on life?

    Is it the beginning or the end of what we can understand???

    Hi there Chris and welcome to the community,

    I believe we can only work on ourself and although I cannot answer your specific questions here is what I have found:-

    We live in an attraction–based universe - we are like magnets and we can only pull things and experiences toward ourselves – we cannot push them away.

    I totally believe that what we focus on and think about mostly, we bring about.

    As Dennis Waitley says "If you go there in the mind, you will go there in the body. When we are really focused we become like a heat seeking missile towards our target.

    Whatever you constantly focus your thoughts and emotions on, good or bad, you bring about. Wherever you are right now has been manifested by your own past thoughts and emotions.

    As Winston Churchill stated “You create your own Universe as you go along.”

    Majjhima Nikaya stated "If you want to know the past, to know what has caused you, look at yourself in the PRESENT, for that is the past's effect. "If you want to know your future, then look at yourself in the
    PRESENT, for that is the cause of the future."

    William Henley also stated “You are the master of your own fate and the captain of your own soul” and Napoleon Hill added to this “because you have the power to control your thoughts.”

    If you focus on bills, debts and worries, with fear and anxiety you will only attract more of these to yourself, but if you focus on the things that you want in your life with joy and enthusiasm you will also draw those things into your life.

    There are so many true stories of people who have overcome the worst kind of adversities by using the power of the mind and visualisation and there are many who have achieved things that seemed impossible to the majority.

    There is much more in-depth information within various threads in the law of attraction section.

    One last thing I would like to offer from my own personal and humble opinion:-

    When people buy things in the pursuit of happiness (some call it retail therapy) they may feel happy for a little while but this is always short lived. Some people even buy mansions, flash cars etc. only to realise it doesn’t mean much to them.

    However, when you have an important worthwhile purpose for what you want and you create this to happen it’s really magical, lasting and very special. What’s more when you’ve done it once, you know you can do it again because you know we all possess this amazing power. I wish you an abundance of peace and joy :) :) :)

    P.S. I would also suggest that through regular meditation you can get rid of many self limiting beliefs, increase confidance, compassion and great insights to discover what is really important to you :)

    I’m not too sure about this question, the LOA theory is vast and complex, long before I had heard of the LOA I came to this conclusion.

    Wanting world peace or $1,000,000 is not going to happen unless you make it happen. The mind is without a doubt the most potent quality we posses. If you look at successful people in sport, business or politics they have one quality, they believe in themselves and take action to achieve. Yes lots of these celebs do have major moral and personal problems, but there is one thing that got them to the point of fame or infamy and that’s they believe in themselves. Whether the LOA attraction will make you happy is subjective in the least. (Not sure if that makes sense :confused:)

    So, if you believe that you will be the winner then you will take steps to be the winner. By winner, I don’t mean first past the post, but doing you’re very best given social or economic environment conditions at the time and doing it with spirit and determination.

    However, if things go wrong we have 2 choices.

    You will reset your goals and give in to a lower more motionless dour way of life. Leading to depression etc etc…
    Or
    You will look into what went wrong and improve coping techniques, health, or mental toughness in one or more ways before the next test

    I decided on the second choice, eager to move forwards again. I fill my mind with successful thoughts rather than failures. The way we think, our ability to relax, the manner in which we control our self-belief, concentration, and determination all help decide how well we can achieve. Even if it’s only for a moment.

    Be kind to yourself first and all will naturally follow :)

    We have a lot of desires. Some of us dream of having a successful career, a wealthy lifestyle, a secure financial status, a secure relationship, or just simply of going to college or eating at that fancy restaurant sometime. One thing is for sure that some of you might not believe: You can have, be or do anything and everything you want!

    Probably by now, you are already aware of these 2 key principles in manifesting your desires:

    1. Create the feeling of having what you want instead of creating the feeling of wanting to have your desire.


    2. Feel good now!

    With these basics applied in your daily life, you can never go wrong about the process of manifesting your desires. However, there are certain tools devised specifically to speed up the manifestation process. These tools ‘condition’ your brain and your feelings to help you get into the ‘allowing state’ quickly and effortlessly.

    I believe the answer is - Yes.

    When we manifest our desire they grow, in the end, at some point, in this life or the next, we will disappointed from them, and will search for the meaning of our existence.

    We will search for - " Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything" (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), I don't know the answer but it's definitely not - 42 :)

    Desperation and pain is the number one reason that lead most of us to the spiritual way, whatever it means to everyone of us.

    The proper use of LOA is actually a catalyst, that helping us to understand that even if we receive all the things we want, we won't be satisfied, which eventually lead us to ask "why?".

    Hope I helped,
    Leonid
