Years ago I got into some of the theological tradition of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas. It was a lot of fun!
I found something so intensely satisfying in contemplating the meaning of the divine, while getting past all the superficial and misleading ideas floating around.
So when law of attraction teachers like Abraham-Hicks prefer to use words like “Source” instead of God, I get where they are coming from.
It’s like the old Zen Buddhist adage about the finger pointing at the moon. We are meant to find the Being that the words “God” and “Source” merely point to.
What does all of this have to do with law of attraction? Well for me personally, thinking about the nature of the divine being, how it supports and sustains the existence of all things, how it loves all things, how its very nature is love — pondering these things feels very good. It’s one subject guaranteed to take me to a profoundly joyful feeling.
So why not spend more time there? One of the Abraham-Hicks teachings is to focus on a subject that easily feels good. Why would you stop focusing on what feels good? Why do we ever willingly turn to focus on things that feel bad?
I hardly ever spoke to others about this subject because I knew my take on it was unique. I knew that other people didn’t find it as satisfying as I did. But at the same time I ended up focusing on things that others insisted were important.
It’s one thing to have hobbies and interests that others don’t share; but to not even spend time enjoying them and instead focus on what others deem important or interesting? That’s a shame!
I don’t need anyone else to appreciate these things with me or for me. I don’t need moral support. This is my satisfaction and my own satisfaction is what matters.
Abraham teaches that if we just focus on one subject that feels really good, everything else in life will be drawn into that same wonderful feeling. All other subjects will come around.
So if there’s something in your life that feels good to think about, go think about it. You don’t have to share it, explain it or justify it. Just focus on it and let it lift you to new heights of happiness and joy.
