Awareness of Opportunity

(7.16) Desirable conditions are secured by entertaining desirable thoughts only.

(7.77) Undesirable conditions are brought about by thinking, discussing and visualizing conditions of lack, limitation, disease, inharmony and discord of every kind. This mental photography of erroneous conception is then taken up by the subconscious and the law of attraction inevitably crystalizes it into objective form. That we reap what we sow is scientifically intact.

The greatest misconception about the law of attraction concerns the tendency to put the cart before the horse. The modern conception of the law of attraction is with regards to physical possessions or events. This is the great error.

When we speak of conditions we do not refer to physical/material conditions but states of being/consciousness. Our greatest power is our ability to control our state of being-our predominant mental attitude. More than anything else, our predominant mental attitude is responsible for creating states along the spectrum of inner peace through to inner catastrophe. These inner-states determine our perception and perception is awareness of opportunity.

We always have opportunity to control inner conditions. Often, a change of inner conditions will result in a change in outer conditions. If our awareness is limited, we are unable to recognize opportunity to instigate change. Inability is a reflection of our stubbornness or resistance to instigate change. Inability is a state of mind not an absolute truth.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
