2. Thanks for your two cents!
Edited on Mon Jul-30-07 10:45 PM by OnionPatch
It sounds good to me. But you don't sound like the people I've heard talking about "The Secret" or the law of attraction. I keep hearing from them that everything your life is was brought about by your thoughts. Well, did the slaves taken from Africa bring that on themselves? Didn't the horrid intentions of the slave traders have something to do with it? What about babies who are born deformed? Did their "negative" thoughts bring that about?

I believe in the law of attraction. Just not the way it is being presented....as if it were the *only* force or law that affects us. You asked if it would be easier just meditating on self-improvement and I agree with that and that old AA saying. But I was asking the questions as examples of why I can't buy the idea that your thoughts control *everything* in your life. I just want to hear these questions answered by the people who subscribe to the Secret. I'm not trying to make fun of them or be disrespectful, I just really have these questions.....

I'll check out your link.
