Transcript: Is the law of attraction selling false hope? I can understand that you follow an intention and try to make something work for you in your life, but very often, we're stuck in a movement of opposites. You have a lack of something, a perceived lack of something emotionally and then you project towards an opposite. When you are poor, you might want to be rich. When you have low self-esteem, you might want to be strong.
If you feel like a nobody in the world, you want to have prestige or fame perhaps. This is the desire that the law of attraction speaks to. In my opinion, it's selling false hope. It is continuously putting more energy into that drive to get somewhere, to become something, to achieve. That achieving, that fueling of desire always comes out of initial lack of something. You can keep stuck in that cycle forever, and ever, and ever, and not finding happiness.
This is exactly what happens. The politician does it. The guru does it. The coach does it. The priest does it. They're all on the same bandwagon selling you hope, selling you promise, selling you a future to reach out to, but the emotional implications are, you have a lack of something, usually on an emotional level. Therefrom, you project towards an opposite. "I'm poor, I want to be rich." "I have low self-esteem, I want to be somebody in the world." "I'm a nobody, I want to have prestige, fame," whatever it is.
There's no end to it. Once you have achieved what you set out to achieve, it's never enough because that underlying sense of lacking something is still present, and so you move from one thing to the other indefinitely. You can see that around you. Look at the people around you or look at people who have a lot of wealth. It's never enough.
They move from one thing to the other, from more wealth, to more power, to more influence, to having more things, et cetera, et cetera. Keep that in mind. Ask yourself the question, is the law of attraction selling false hope? Is it speaking to your perceived emotional lack of something and thereby fueling more energy into that cycle of opposites, into that cycle of becoming?
