“Fear produces what it fears. Therefore, when one begins to distrust life, when one begins to create within oneself mechanisms of distrust, then facts arise that confirm that it is justified to distrust. In reality, trust in such cases is lodged in what is unreliable.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:III
This quotation builds on the law of attraction directly. We draw to ourselves the distrust: “. . .facts arise that confirm that it is justified to distrust.” It is so obvious that the law of attraction is real, for spiritual texts constantly confirm these ideas. And I am more likely to give credence to the law of attraction if it is discussed in a spiritual text.
We are lodging trust in that which is “unreliable”—that is, not trustworthy. We need to place our faith in something more substantial, and, for me, that represents placing faith in God Himself, the Force that Star Wars, the movie, showed so well.
We attract fear if we are not careful, if we let our minds dwell on that which is fearful. Like attracts like, as we know. If we have a simple but profound trust in life, our attitude gives us the best.
We don’t have to fear. We can turn to God, to our faith, to sustain us in our focus on higher ideals.
