Jesus Taught It Too (The Early Roots Of The Law Of Attraction)

Chapter Five

Text size:

It is not that people should show off their successes but neither should they hide. Teaching by example has long been touted as a way to convince others of the correctness of the way you live and think.

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works. And glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

It should be obvious from the above quote that Jesus did not think that humanity was the scum of the earth. He did not believe we were poor wretched creatures, full of sin, worthy of punishment, and fit for nothing but hiding under a stone. There is no question that this is a reference to our spiritual light but it also deals with every aspect of our life, including our material nature. The Law of Attraction proclaims that all people are imbued with the creative power of the Universe.

Just as our children share many of our traits, the children of the universe have the same light as that which created them. In a way, it is in the genes. By proclaiming that all are the “light of the world,” Jesus was saying that it is wrong to hide or suppress our true nature. By letting our light shine you are claiming our relationship to our divinity. By expressing what is inherently ours, we are actually paying homage to that force that permeates the entire universe. All parents want the best for their children right? All parents, no matter how “divine” want their children to succeed, to find happiness, to be healthy, wealthy and wise. What kind of parent wishes eternal suffering on his children?

Why would anyone think or even promote the notion that we, the “children of God” are not meant to have health, prosperity, and abundant love? Those that do foster these beliefs are usually ones who have achieved a degree of success but fear that others will take that from them. It is this belief in scarcity that fosters this limited and constricting idea of the world. It is as if they are saying that there can be only so many healthy, wealthy and happy people in the world and if you are not one of them, be content with what you have and you will receive your reward in heaven.

Does this not sound like a conflict of interest? It is said in “The Secret” that not everyone wants the same job, the same life partner or wants to live exactly as someone else. There is enough to go around. If, as science says, all things are made of energy there is certainly an abundance of energy in the Universe to go around. Let us face it, they can always print more money. Therefore, let the light that you are find expression and finally end the illusion of darkness.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

If humanity is fatally flawed, why would Jesus say that you can achieve the perfection of the divine intelligence that created the Universe? By saying that deity is the Father of all, it follows that we are all equally the sons and daughters of God. There are no exclusionary notions in this quote. No one is left out of the equation. Jesus does not say try to be perfect, he says be perfect.

Somewhere along the way someone decided that it would be best for people to think that they were essentially evil and that only by maintaining adherence to certain creeds and dogma would they find salvation. By doing this people have used this lack of perceived perfection as an excuse to explain all the evils of the world. It has been used to justify and rationalize why some are in misery while others flourish. The Law of Attraction says that people are perfect in potential and all that stands between the truth and the reality is a state of mind. Is this not what Jesus is saying?

There is no indication in his admonition that anything should stand in the way of human perfection. He did not say, “Try to be like me because I am the only son of God and I am perfect and even though you are all sinners, you just might improve your life.” The use of the word “BE” is a command, not a request. Jesus chose his words carefully and was not prone to exaggeration. I also believe that Jesus did not contradict himself and that he meant exactly what he said. Be the conscious creative force in your world and create your new reality based in Light and perfection.
