Hey everyone

I am Sophia and I am currently a sophomore student at National Experimental High School in Hsin Chu in Taiwan. Throughout this school year, we have been discussion the essence, inner being with relation to the law of attraction. We have been engaged in forum discussions to communicate our ideas and thoughts and it is my turn to post my questions for this week. I would appreciate it if you guys could help me find an answer or suggestions to my questions regarding the inner being, true spirituality and the law of attraction.

As we have discussed in class, there are 3 domains in which the connection to the universal being exists. Firstly, we live in the localized consciousness, which is where the ego mind and essence exists together to guide us through our everyday lives. Then there is the intuition and instinct region, where spontaneity occurs and our souls can connect with the universal soul. The nonlocalized/ virtual domain is where the consciousness, universal being and higher intelligence exists.
We also know that we are in control of everything that happens in our lives and that thoughts can be put into action to create reality. The power of thought allows us to transcend limitations of this world and we have power over our circumstances. The law of attraction allows us to make thoughts become reality and to override what is determined by "fate".

So here is my question:
If the essence and true spirituality possess the inner connections with the universal being, can we use this connection to make the law of attraction work?

According to The Secret, we are supposed to be able to gain what we want if we want it bad enough, in the good way, and therefore make our thoughts manifest to come true through the attraction forces of the universe. Therefore, Is it possible to want something materialistic in the "right way"? (As in not wanting too much that it would completely consume you but enough so that the power of it can be applied through the law of attraction)

The answer to your question is yes.  
But first, I want to thank you, Sophia.  A wonderful question from a wonderful mind.
The law of attraction also has its opposite and there is a point where the resistance of the attraction will cease and that begins the other way; the law of repulsion.  
The law of attraction will affect you the same as the law of repulsion.
It just goes a different way.

The universe does its own thing.


It is me!

A large part of our everyday lives is emotions. Everything is surrounded by emotions because we are simply people with feelings and reactions to things. The Secret mentions that GRATITUDE is a huge part of the Law of Attraction. Because having gratitude for what we already own will alter our perspectives onto life and the material objects significantly.
Many people have talked about having the correct mindset and perspectives, which will lead you to become satified with what you have already, therefore eliminating the need to pursue more material objects. But how exactly do we know when a want stems from the ego mind or the inner being? Where is that line or boundary for when something is wanted in the right way for the right purposes, and when we desire something excessively? We want to be able to control our ego minds and therefore exercise our desires for the material world, but how exactly do we do that? If the ego mind is so loud and overpowers the voice of the inner being, how can we hear it or connect with it to understand the truest desires of the essence? The ego mind is LOUD and extremely difficult to control, so how do we control it so that its desires dont over ride the needs of the inner being?

Depends on the attraction.  Is it sexual attraction?  Intellectual attraction?  Animal attraction?  Selfish attraction?

I wish we were in control of everything that happens, but the amount of control anyone has is very little.  Someone pulls a gun and shoots you, you didn't have any control over them.  Your immediate body is only under your own control for as long as the outside world "allows" you to.  That doesn't mean one doesn't have control over their spirit, or their own mind, or their own soul.  If I wanted bad enough for good things to happen, unless I personally do something to force those good things to happen, they won't.  Now if there is opposition that tries to make bad things happen, my efforts to make good things happen will either fail or become a stalemate.  Thought itself is only as powerful as the synapses that course through your body.  That's not to say "fate" doesn't exist, but to think people could determine the course of fate is like a drop of the dice.  Totally random.

I want to find love.  I want to find it in another person outside of myself.  I want it more than anything else in the world.  Do I want to be loved?  Not important.  Other people are important.  I'd even give my life over and commit the ultimate sacrifice of my dying to give love to humanity.  But wanting it, and reality is not the same thing.  Mankind is incapable of loving outside of themselves since they are selfish animals.  It's a sad truth, and no matter how much I may want the reverse, it won't happen.

Now I do believe in the desire to transcend above humanity, and the more you want it, the closer you can become.  Is that what you're talking about?

Maybe that's my inner being.  The altruist.  Was I drawn to it, attracted to it?  Not that I'm aware of.  It simply happened, and became who I am.  The world is a passing thing, so materialistic desires are pointless.

I think everything is surrounded by AN emotion.  You visit one place and they are doing one thing.  You visit another, and they do another.  Gratitude defines the art of doing with what you have been given.

It is me!
