BINGO! Jon Rappoport nails it, re: the passivity of those who cling to the Law of Attraction

images-1This is a brilliant analysis of why I have so much trouble taking New Age people seriously. Not to mention “lightworkers” who wait for ETs or Nesara or “the reval” or whatever other pie-in-the-sky pot of gold is supposed to fall or drop in so they can get off their duffs and move into creative action. And of course, I just want to say to all of them, “get thee to permaculture!” You’ll be happy you did, and you won’t need to wait around any more, hoping for redemption while monitoring your thoughts. Instead, you’ll feel, and be, connected, vibrating and working in concert with the mysterious, regenerative powers of the living universe — within and without, above and below.

The Law of Attraction is the New Age version of the Surveillance State

September 8, 2013

By Jon Rappoport

The so-called law of attraction: like attracts like.

If you’re thinking about good outcomes, that’s what you get. If you’re thinking about negative outcomes, you get those.

Positive thoughts=positive things happen for you. Negative thoughts=negative things happen for you.

A few New Age prophets even go so far as this: we’re entering a whole new era, in which whatever you think will instantly manifest itself in the world; therefore, negative thoughts are dangerous; only those people who have purified themselves to the point where they’re exclusively thinking positive thoughts will make it through into paradise. The rest will be left behind to suffer.

First of all, policing your own thoughts is like trying to catch every drop of rain in a thunderstorm. It’s obviously impossible. So the lunatic task of purifying your thoughts is a fool’s errand from the outset.

More importantly, the manifestation of outcomes and realities in the world isn’t about “having good thoughts.” Nor is it about trying to avoid “bad thoughts.”

Thoughts are thoughts. They come in all shapes and sizes. You can program a robot to think only “good thoughts,” but a human is quite different.

The law of attraction is a PASSIVE formulation.

Out of the 2456 trillion thoughts you could have or experience, the ones that count are those you form and choose yourself to lead to ACTION. The rest don’t matter. They’re irrelevant. They don’t produce anything.

But when people cling to the law of attraction like a lifeboat, they’re enacting a surveillance state on their own minds. They’re the NSA of their own mental activity.

And like the NSA, their overall spying effort is targeting meaningless activity.

Consciousness is free. Policing it is self-sabotage.

“I’m a cop on the beat. My territory is my own mind. I make sure only the good guys last. I squash the bad guys.” This is nothing short of self-imposed MKULTRA. And it doesn’t cost the government a cent. People do it to themselves.

On the other hand, the creative life is an ongoing, intense, thrilling enterprise of mind, body, soul, and imagination. It has no formula. It has no pre-set system.

Comparing its manifesting effects in the world to the law of attraction is like comparing a burning sun to a 10-watt bulb.

The law of attraction, from the start, is paying attention to a tiny forest of sputtering energies. It’s trying to negotiate between the good little sputters and the bad little sputters—neither of which are really good or bad or important.

The primary action of consciousness is CREATING. In that effort, if all the sputters play any role at all, it’s to be transmuted into raw fuel for the fire.

    What bores me about Rapoport’s article is the insistence that the Law of Attraction is defined by its misinterpretation.

    “Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.”
    – Terence McKenna

    What Rapoport seems to be writing about is the too-easy habit of clinging to “good thought/bad thought” dualism and getting obsessed with self-policing, when what is necessary is inner and (as much as possible) external preparation for the desired conditions to manifest.

    It is possible to point out the crippling nature of rigidly dualistic thinking, without shutting down an accessible path to an intimate conversation with the Universe.

    I’m reposting this Jon Rappoport through Ann at Exopermaculture, because I second her comments … with the addition that in sessions my refrain is for people to become aware of their FEELINGS and PREFERENCES … as these can’t really be suppressed. They will come at you sideways, no matter how “disciplined” your thought process. We create FROM our subconscious, so getting to know those repressed feelings is key to creating those things we want in the world. I am a huge fan of manifestation and using the power of imagination to bring into being that which I love. I experience so called instant manifestation so often that David calls it “Laura Bruno-ing” something, but this does NOT come from sticking my head in the sand or denying my feelings about something. It comes from redirecting denial of what I don’t want into imagination and ACTION steps towards what I do now clearly recognize I want. As Ann says, “Get thee to permaculture!” Nature is the best teacher of how we can work with “what is” and shift it into something more preferred. Plus, we get grounded, experience beauty and all those healing negative ions to boot. Excellent observations by both Ann and Jon!
