The Law of Attraction, Part 2
The Journey Home
When people today speak of the Law of Attraction they are often referencing a modern new age book such as The Secret by Rhonda Byrne or The Law of Attraction, a channeled book by Jerry and Esther Hicks.
These books contain little that is new though, Most of the principles and ideas were already presented by Napoleon Hill in his famous book, Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937.
This was a a terrific book and the fascinating part is that Mr. Hill claimed to have received communications from a group of Masters from Tibet.
And when we think of Masters from Tibet what name comes to mind to students of the Ancient Wisdom?
None other than Djwhal Khul, (DK) the Tibetan Master, who communicated numerous books through Alice A. Bailey.
It is interesting to consider that way back in 1925, 12 years before the publication of Think and Grow Rich, that Alice A. Bailey published A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, which contained numerous teachings on The Law of Attraction. And that was just the beginning. Through the decades numerous other Bailey books were published giving more secrets to The Law of Attraction, creation and manifesting the seen and the unseen.
The writings inspired by the Tibetan Master, DK, are difficult reading for many and never reached close to the sales numbers of popular self help books. The meat in them is reserved for true seekers who are willing to slowly wade through the writings and contemplate as they go.
Even though the sales of the Bailey books have only been a fraction of others dealing with The Law of Attraction their influence has been great. Many thinkers have read the Bailey books, as well as the works of H. P. Blavatsky, and have presented some of the ideas in easy to read format that obtained wide circulation.
So what then is The Law of Attraction according to D K? – seen by many as the most reliable source on the planet on this subject.
In a nutshell here is what he says it is. There is a force of attraction originating with spirit and an opposing force of repulsion originating with matter. The Law of Attraction comes into play when the attractive force of spirit becomes greater than the repelling force of matter.
The mastery of The Law of Attraction involves the pilgrim gradually changing focus from the material side of life to the spiritual over the course of many lifetimes.
The attractive power of Spirit filters down to the average person and first manifests through the sacral and solar plexus centers as sexual and desire energy. The building energies of spirit draw two people together to procreate and then attracts. for their child, the elements necessary to create a body for the desired child of the union.
As the entity progresses he desires to draw more creations to him. He wants a better house, car and money in the bank. As his desire for these things increases he draws to him the lower octave of spiritual energy and learns to manifest his desires.
Now these desires may not be seen as spiritual in nature, but nevertheless he is still taking a step in the direction of the pull of Spirit.
This phase in the life of the soul is the focus of many of the self-help books that are popular. They all give various tips on manifesting those things we desire to make us happy as individuals.
As the seeker progresses onward and satisfies his many desires from life to life he begins to feel a void and becomes unsatisfied. He wants more, but where is the more? He seems to have everything.
As this vacuum within him persists more attractive energy of Spirit begins to flow into him. He senses this wonderful peace and joyousness and feels called to pursue it. This is the beginning of a more endowed power of Spirit pulling the consciousness of the seeker away from his material desires to the source of the spiritual flow.
In other words, his attention begins to shift away from the forces of matter to the attractive power of Spirit.
Over a series of lifetimes this shift is made. At first the pull of spirit is very slight and he wonders if he is imagining sensations associated with it. As his attention increases the manifestations of it become much stronger and all doubt is removed. He eventually loses interest in the material world and only places the attention on it required for basic needs, as far as self is concerned. He now finds his real treasure is in “heaven” or the realm of Spirit.
As he progresses onward the the pull of Spirit eclipses the pull of the material side of life and he becomes one with his soul. This feels like he has found his true home. Then he discovers that this was just one great step and feels the call of a greater spiritual Source, his personal Father in Heaven, his Monad and later groups of monads.
The Law of Attraction takes him to a path with no end – “worlds without end” as written in the scriptures.
