Does The Law of Attraction Conflict With Being Christian
When You Want to Believe But Think You Shouldn't
Surely I can't believe in LOA and God....
I've heard this question so many times. I am coming at this from the point of a non-believer (in God I mean) and I say yes you can believe in both. Who is to say what we can and can't believe. Whatever works for you is okay.
I am a firm believer in the theory that we make our own reality and nothing can budge me form that belief, but at the same time, I concede that I have no idea why we have that power.
Reality Is Whatever You Believe It Is
My son believes we are living in a simulation. He's into the Elon Musk theory. I don't, Believe we are a product of someone else's imagination, but I don't know for a fact that he is wrong and I am right.
If we take the bible literally then it's hard to let another version of God in. I do believe that's where the church has an issue. If it wants to attract a younger audience then it has to modernise.
None of us knows what's really going on. You can choose to believe in your version of God and still realise that we are creating as we go along. Couldn't God have given us that power?
Just because I choose to believe it's all quantum physics, it doesn't mean I'm correct in that assumption. It just means there's a chance I'm right.
I never dismiss anybody else's beliefs. I completely respect them and hope that others will afford me the same respect. We all have our own mind and our own subconscious mind. Each of us is different. Our current belief system is either built around what we've been told growing up, from our parents or teachers, or from things we have experienced.
Inner Conflict is Uneccessay
You don't have to fight with your inner-self. You'll talk yourself out of a good thing if you do.
If you want, then ask God for the things you want or the life that you want. You can ask whoever or whatever you like. There are no rules with this stuff.
The issue comes when we think that we can't have both religion and LOA in our lives because, well we just can't because surely it has to be one or the other. Not so. Don't limit yourself or your life by doing or thinking what other people say you should do or think. Be open to letting it be whatever it is and going with it.
A Modern Take On Who or What God is
I used to be a believer in the traditional sense, so it's not as if I'm completely blind to traditional Christian beliefs and values. I was around 23 when I decided I no longer felt the same way about the World and religion as a whole. At that time I didn't believe in anything at all. I like believing in something. It wasn't until a few years back that I started to think there was something different going on.
I understand the wrestling you may do with yourself. I think the best way to combat this conflict within it to simply let it be. Know that you are a christian and say to yourself I am not hurting anyone, I can believe in a way that seems to fit with what I am experiencing or have experienced. If we have this power, as I know that we do, then who am I to question it?
I am open minded at the end of the day. I like what I believe and the way I express that belief. It works for me and that's all that matters. You should find a way that works for you. By the very fact that you are here, reading this, you are realising that there're more to this life than we may have been led to believe. You can only go with your own experience, no-body else's. Just choose to believe in a God that allows us to create as we go, and thank him for that awesome power!
