“In turning to the Law, realize that it is a Law of Reflection.” That’s a quote from Ernest Holmes, in the chapter of his textbook the Science of Mind called….wait for it…here it comes…..The Law of Attraction. Bet you didn’t know that in the Centers for Spiritual Living (http://www.unitedcentersforspiritualliving.org/) we’ve been talking about and teaching about the Law of Attraction for years, long before folks like Wayne Dyer started writing about it, and long before the movie The Secret came out. And…did you know that it’s a sure bet there is a Center for Spiritual Living within driving distance of where you are? I’m writing from South Lake Tahoe, California. There is the Lake Tahoe Spiritual Living Center here (www.laketahoespirituallivingcenter.com). Down in Carson City, a mere 27 miles door to door from the LTSLC, is the Center for Spiritual Living Carson City (http://www.cslcc.org/), and on the other side of the lake, in Tahoe City, is the Center for Spiritual Living Tahoe Truckee (http://tahoe.csl.org/). Check one of them out! You’ll find classes, workshops, celebrations and fellowship, all aimed at helping you transform your life!
But I digress, I wanted to write about the Law of Attraction today, not about how cool and awesome and accessible and omnipresent our Centers are. Back to the Law of Attraction.
That quote above suggests that what we attract is a reflection of ourselves. I’ve discovered that to be very true. I’ve also discovered that this is perhaps the most difficult lesson to learn, because if we look to ourselves for what we are attracting into our lives, the first place we usually go is a place of blame and shame.
Don’t do that. It’s not productive and it won’t get you anywhere.
Who you are today is who you needed to be to get where you are. It’s not a bad thing and not something to be ashamed of. It’s simply another step on the journey. But if you are stuck, acknowledging that who you are today is no longer serving you is the path to getting unstuck. Change the reflection, and what you attract will change.
And now we are back, full circle, to the Centers for Spiritual Living. Because it is there where you will find the tools which will allow you to change the reflection. I guess I didn’t digress after all! Find a Center. Go. Enlist the aid of a Practitioner. Take a class. Fall is coming up. The Carson City Center has New Foundations beginning on Sept. 14, plus a couple of very cool and free beginning workshops that will answer all your questions about who we are and what we do, plus two book studies every week, in addition to Sunday Celebration Services. The Center at Tahoe City has a meditation class starting on Sept 1, as well as Sunday Celebration Services. And here at home in my Lake Tahoe Center I’ll be doing a class on Living Deeply, starting in October.
The Law of Attraction is. It is always working in your life. You may not be conscious of it, you may not even believe in it, but like other Laws, it is always there, always working. And it will always attract into your life a reflection of who and what you are. So if you are not attracting what you want, be and do something different, and come to a Center to help you with that.
