Everyone seems to be talking about the law of attraction and manifestation these days, especially after the release of the hit movie “Secret.” Yes, it is so popular that even I own a copy (note that I am not a movie enthusiast). Some of us watched the movie and delve further, and some just say ” Ah! It’s just impossible!” and forget about it.

We Are The Universe

So, what is the law of attraction? Simply put, it is the realization and understanding of the relationship between us and the Universe and learning to connect ourselves in order to manifest our desires.

The Universe is abundance. We are the ‘miniature Universe’ within this greater entity. In other words, we are the Universe. It may seem like a difficult concept but it makes a lot of sense once we understand it.

From the teaching of Abraham, “You and that which you call Source are the same. You cannot be separated from Source. When we think of you, we think of Source. When we think of Source, we think of you. Source never offers a thought that causes separation from you.” The Universe is the Source, we are too. That is why we are governed by the laws of the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. The Universe is Love, is Peace, is Happiness, is Well-being.

And we are too.

When I read the book, “Manifest Your Desire” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, I was very inspired. The teaching of law of attraction and manifestation not only reinforce what I had already learned from the Buddha (which somehow has some similarity), but makes me realize that all the great teachers of life are basically saying the same thing– we are born to be happy. There are various channels –meditation, affirmation, healing methods of all sort–that can help us achieve enlightenment, happiness and well-being.
