The Rhonda Byrne ladder?
The Law of Attraction, “the principle that you attract whatever you focus your energy on (good or bad)” has a best seller : The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne.
Of course, this is crap. If you’re robbed or you house gets on fire, it’s NOT because you “negatively thought about it”. And if you want to loose weight, just try to “think thin” and watch the results, haha.
There’s an “other” secret in this book and the Law of Attraction : the author doesn’t give a monkey’s about “how” it works.
She mainly says : you want something, you ask for it, you watch, and if you get it, thank you.
This is obviously a ladder – and it’s maybe the reason the book had such success :
- If you’re a religious person, you’re in your warm bath : Jesus (or your Angel) always takes care of you and just offered you this perfect parking place you needed, cool.
- If you think the Universe conspires to help you, it’s the same. Just attract what you need by thinking about it. It’s the secret.
- If you are a normal, good sensed person, you can play it too : want some, ask some (to a tree, or whatever), watch around and if you get it, thank (the tree or whatever – you don’t care), just thank.
Both (sorry, troth) solutions of the ladder work. What this “game” provides is maybe… focus and good will.
If you get up on the wrong side of the bed, you really have a good chance to spend a bad day, right? And it’s not because of the Law of Attraction. If you want you daughter to succeed her exams, think about it : do you pray the Lord, or do you spend time with her when she needs it?
My tool here is : Where are other ladders? Which concept will we choose to operate on, from the bottom to the top, effectiveness wise?
Thanks for reading!
