THE LAW OF ATTRACTION.
The law of attraction was not invented in recent years; it was not even invented by Buddha. It has always been here. It has been popularized in the last years by the media. Nevertheless, it is as old as humanity.
All ancient civilizations knew about this law. It goes with the flow of nature as yoga does. It works if we put it to work properly. It will not work if we just believe in it without doing anything.
A mere belief lacks of power. Whoever believes in something sooner or later will doubt about it. Believing and doubts are always together. One day you might believe in something and the other day you might not.
It is important to understand first then we can try to experiment. So let us explain:
All experiments are based in observation. Sometimes the experiment goes fine and sometimes not. The better we do the experiment the better results we get. After some experiments we can observe the results of the experiment.
You have to be willing to experiment with yourself in real life. Just try your best and be objective. It is important to give away all fantasies about this subject. Experiments must be done with the feet on the ground.
Understanding that everything is energy is really important. Vibration is the outcome from energy, so everything is vibrating and that includes you and me. We are vibrating and our vibration is the outcome of many factors. Please read my article: Yoga health: Mind, soul and energy! (Link at the bottom). Actually you need to read that article to understand this better.
We are energy and there are several forces within us. We have to add up our thoughts and emotions. But we are built of organs and tissues, which depend on our nutrition and life style. We are the sum of all that and even more. Our vibration is the outcome of all those different aspects that make us what we are.
Our vibration, not just thoughts and ideas, brings things toward us. The mere thinking of something does not make that to come true. The whole you is the matter. The whole you creates your personal vibration. That personal vibration brings things to you and, therefore it creates your life.
Your life is the outcome of many factors and your decisions play a huge role on it. Here is where Yoga (Including meditation and its philosophy) plays a great deal on our life. Why? Because yoga can change our vibration.
A simple idea from yoga can change your life, if you really want. An idea like this one: APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE ARE THE FIRST STEPS TOWARD HAPPINESS!
Why that idea is so powerful?
THE POWER OF APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE.
That vibration is around you and it is spread around you and beyond. This could be a source of happiness or a source of pain for you and for others.
Complaining does not help to solve problems; actually it might make problems harder or worst. The idea is to create a change within yourself. That change will modify your vibration and, even more, it might touch other beings.
Many people focus on what they do not have. They are always complaining or seeing the negative aspects of life. What are they doing? They are increasing negativity with their vibration. They are not helping others and they are not helping themselves.
A person forgets about other people when they focus on all negative aspects. They think they have the worst problems; but others are in hospitals dying or were born without legs to walk or have nothing to eat, etc.
We have to thanks for the opportunity to be alive, for our friends and family, for the body we have, for the air that we can breathe, for the mountains and rivers, for the mighty sun, etc. usually the most important things are totally free: Love, friendship, loyalty, etc. Where is the need to focus on the negative things? The more a person does it the more he/she suffers and that is the path to depression and it could lead to death.
Appreciation is the capacity value what you have. This aptitude spreads a really good positive energy around you. When a person feels appreciation, then that person feels gratitude. Gratitude is the capacity to thanks what you have.
As you can see, when a person values something then that person feels gratitude. Both are always together. Both generate a great energetic movement, energy or vibration. This becomes a magnet which attracts positive energies toward you.
Appreciation and gratitude bring one more thing: ALTRUISM! This is love. Love is the capacity to do things for others. Kissing and caressing are expressions of love; but love goes beyond it. Love is doing something for the person you love. When you say that you love someone, but you do not do anything for that person then it is not love. LOVE IS DOING SOMETHING FOR THE HAPPINESS AND WELL-BEING OF THE OTHER PERSON.
Altruism is the capacity to do something for other beings. Altruism comes out from a grateful heart. That heart feels appreciation and gratitude; therefore, it feels the need to do something for other beings. Altruism is love in action!
Love is the most amazing and powerful force of the universe! Therefore, when feeling appreciation and being thankful then altruism comes and it is love. So, you are spreading love through altruism.
A real yogi appreciates things and feels gratitude for all he/she has. So, a real yogi feels the need to help in some way. Therefore, a real yogi practices Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. Yes, a real yogi is altruistic and he/she spreads and promotes love.
Whoever wants to bring positive vibrations toward himself/herself should Develop appreciation and gratitude. They both are the key on the law of attraction. It is not enough to wish or think about something you want. You need to change your vibration.
What happen if I always care about me and I forget about others?
THE PRICE OF SELFISHNESS AND THE POWER OF LOVE.
The most powerful force of the infinite is love. Love unifies all the forces and put everything together. The cause of unity is love and love is the cause of the unity. Selfishness is separation.
Ancient philosophy indicates that we all are one. Thinking that we can live without any help, alone, is just totally wrong. We all need each other. We all are a huge family of brothers and sisters beyond race, country, language, skin color, etc.
Selfishness is the cause of all pain. Love is the solution to all problems. Love can build a new world. Selfishness is destroying our planet.
The more selfishness a person has the more negative he/she has. Is it worth? No. A person like that needs to change the base of his life: Thoughts and emotions.
CHANGE YOUR VIBRATION, OF YOUR ATOMS AND INNER FORCES, AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Selfish people will receive selfishness and negativity. That person will ask why he/she receives negative things (Pain, injustice, etc.) from life; while the person who practices love (Appreciation, gratefulness and altruism) is receiving blessings.
A very simple rule is this: YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE!
Do you want good things for your life? Great! Ask yourself what you are giving to others. You need to be really sincere with you. Usually people are not sincere with themselves.
Let us change the way of our life. Let us change the way we think and feel. Let us move from selfishness to love. If you ask for love then you have to give it. If you do not give love, then do not expect to have it.
A great master said something like this: GIVE TO OTHERS WHATEVER YOU WANT THEM TO GIVE TO YOU. That great master was not understood by most of the people, even nowadays. His name is The Great Jesus. Buddha spoke about the same telling that what we think comes to be real. All great Masters knew this simple; but yet powerful rule.
Now it is time for us to put it in practice. You do not need a religion to be spiritual. You can have one if you want; but the matter is to put things in action beyond beliefs. Talking about love is beautiful; but the time has come to show it in actions.
Remember: LOVE IS WHAT YOU DO FOR OTHERS. LOVE IS SERVING HUMANITY!
The price of selfishness is chaos, negativity, loneliness, sadness, etc. Negative vibrations will bring negative things into your life. So, the best deal is to change, to become more human. The deal is to practice the doctrine of the heart: LOVE!
Love is the most powerful force of the universe. If you practice it then you will become human. Most of the people in our planet are not humans. They have become mere robots programmed by their own interests (Selfishness).
THE POWER OF LOVE MAKES YOUR ATOMS TO VIBRATE IN A HIGHER FREQUENCY LEADING YOU TO HAPPINESS!
Happiness is the outcome of love. Nobody can be happy without love. Love is a balm for our suffering soul. Love is the only force capable to make us change.
Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga help you to cultivate this philosophy: THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE HEART.
THE KEY TO THE LAW OF ATTRACTION:
The key of the law of attraction is a change on the way we think and feel. That change will modify our vibration not for a day or two, but for the rest of our life. Then life will change for us.
The higher our vibration is the more powerful it becomes. It does not mean problems will vanish. How can anyone exist without problems? The matter is that a higher level of vibration goes together with a higher level of conscience and awareness. That new level of conscience and awareness is what will change our life.
A new level of vibration will bring new friends with higher awareness and conscience; it also will bring peace and happiness to our life.
We are a magnet and we point that magnet where we send our vibration. When we start thinking of others and care about them then life change. The law of attraction will bring to us what we send to others.
Whoever wants happiness must look for the happiness of others. Whoever wants love must give love. If you want forgiveness then forgive. If you want comprehension then try to comprehend others. Whatever you want you have to give it first. The law of attraction will do the rest.
If we want to be sincere then we need a change, a deep change, in our mind and emotions. Not for one day or two; but for the rest of our life.
Practicing yoga and meditation will change your life forever. Asanas are great and very helpful; but yoga is a lot more than just asanas. Yoga is a science and a philosophy. We need to practice yoga and meditation; but we need its philosophy to change our way to think and feel. A real change comes out from effort and study of our inner nature.
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR VIBRATION, NOT FOR A MOMENT, BUT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
Nobody will ever succeed with the law of attraction without appreciation and gratitude. Both will bring altruism, which is love for others. Love will change everything!
A selfish person will never ever control the law of attraction, because it requires love. Learning to love is possible when we change the way we think and feel. First you need to develop appreciation for whatever you have, then you have to be thankful for it; finally you have to practice altruism and the law will bring what you need to you.
