Jesus Taught It Too (The Early Roots Of The Law Of Attraction)
The casual experimenter will probably have little success with The Law of Attraction and the process that is outlined by Jesus
in these pages. If you enter this process with an attitude of, “I guess it will not hurt to try it,” then you might as well
seek some other means to fulfill your desires.
“No man putteth a piece of new cloth upon an old garment; else the new piece that filleth it up agreeth not with the old:
it taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
Another parable put he forth.
And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the bottles will be marred: the new wine will burst the bottles, and be
spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved…”
If the inner person is not changed, these new ideas could only make matters worse. The “new cloth” is the new idea that you
can change your reality and manifest your heart’s desire. The old garment is your current state of mind, the way you view
the world and the extent to which you can accept a reversal in your thinking. If you cannot repent, if you cannot change your
mind, the new ideas will only serve to cause you frustration and disappointment. This will make the “rent,” or tear, worse
in the mindset in which you are clothed. This could lead to a focus upon the negative and as a result you will attract more
of what you do not want or desire. These types of cautions are frequently neglected and cause many to doubt the efficacy of
The “new wine” in the old bottle can burst the very fabric of your thought system. This can sour your general outlook on life
and lead you down the road of further desperation. You must put new wine into “new bottles.” In this you alter your fundamental
way of thinking and you are, in a sense, “born again” into a new way of thinking and a new outlook on life.
While this process is not that difficult, it does require focus and attention on the way you think and your reaction to the
events that occur in your life. As the bottle becomes new it can accept more wine. However, the steps in this process are
fairly precise and to attempt shortcuts will result in failure. Failure is not as negative as the word implies. It is by learning
from our failures that we grow and evolve. Like I said, you are not on a pre-set time frame. As far as the Universe is concerned,
you have eternity to create your new bottle. It is you who creates a sense of urgency and all of the stress that goes along
with your concern for tomorrow.
