Law of attraction

I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me or Om Varunam Namah. My life is in harmony with the universe. These translations are from Deepak Chopra. He is an is an Indian writer of books on spirituality, alternative medicine and also a proud promoter of the law of attraction.

Improving the present

This law focuses on the idea that there are always things you can do to improve the present moment. Even if many things in your life are going very badly. So while it always seems that the present is somehow flawed, this law suggests that instead of feeling anxious or unhappy, you should focus your energy on finding ways to make the present moment the best that it can be. In practice, this would mean that you can have a laughing fit at a time when you would normally cry. 

The New Thought concept of the Law of Attraction is rooted in ideas that come from various philosophical and religious traditions. In particular, it has been inspired by Hermeticism, specific verses from the Bible, and Hinduism.


But this belief is widely criticised because it’s not scientifically proven. For example, you cannot prove that your situation really improves when you utter a few positive words. If someone is in debt and therefore has dark thoughts, this person cannot suddenly pay his debts by being positive. The state of mind can improve but the overall situation remains that the person has to pay. A positive word cannot change a bill. Therefore, despite it’s popularity, several scientists call the law of attraction a pseudoscience. But what we can say for sure is that it’s better to be positive in life. Because good attracts good. Those who are always negative attract negative people and vice versa. Overall be positive, positive and realistic.
