HOW TO SURPASS THE LAW OF ATTRACTION TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
If you want goodness, do this:
If you can see it, you can be itThe summary of the Law of Attraction
If you want Divine greatness, heed these words–

Visualize your dreams, then ook right on past the images. Cannot a toddler envision grad school? Can he visualize that success, the way Law of Attraction proponents advise? Of course not. Yet his incomprehensibly magnificent future is not limited or even influenced by his sub-divine imagination. He’s not limited back in his youth, and he is not limited now. No matter how well developed we believe our minds to be, we are like babies next to God’s thoughts, which are, as you know, higher than our thoughts.
We are Infant Dreamers. Always remember your vision is your starting point, so go crazy with your hopes. To be an active Christian, there’s believing in Jesus, which is beyond the scope of this post. And there’s the action of emulating the grace of God in obedience to the teachings. I’m talking about extending mercy and forgiveness to people who don’t deserve mercy, would never reciprocate mercy, and would use your forgiveness as an opening to really hurt you. That’s what we are called to do. Is it logical, in human terms? No. But, if you believe that Jesus was right, then that’s how you live a life of obedience resulting in unimaginable greatness. There’s more to it, but that’s a jumping off point for taking your dreams to the next level.
Sounds impossible? If it was easy it wouldn’t have been in the Bible!
