In The Fellowship of the Heart, two of the protagonists, Jack Actov and Peter Colboard, seem to have things under control; they have plans, contingencies, and connections.
“But they’re the bad guys!” some might say. Yes, and I think this is an important point to understand when we consider the conflict between Ego and Heart. In the long run, Ego does not work for our spiritual good; it does not want us to awaken to core Self. However, in the short term, Ego can help us feel pretty good, can seem to be working, and it may be passed off as just being pragmatic. Some people think that if they experience financial success or gain importance that their lifestyle works. And it does.
No matter what works, short or long term, if we never get to the point of knowing core Self AND creating life Purpose, we settle for a spiritual second best. And in some ways, that’s okay, because this life isn’t the end. But to miss out on discovering Self and creating Purpose, it leaves our minds and souls, some parts, somewhere deep inside, with a black hole condensed around those two questions: Who am I? What is my Purpose here?
Back to the novel! Actov and Colboard have their conspiracy running. When hitches arise in their plans, they seem to draw the answers from thin air. And this is my point tonight: the law of attraction that works for those who have awakened to Self works just the same for those who have not awakened, even those who have overtly rejected their Heart appeals for acknowledgement.
Now, they never directly, not usually, have a conversation with their Heart in which they end up saying thanks, but no thanks. It’s more like opportunity after opportunity arises, and they think they’re smarter because they actively cultivate the shallower work of Ego for immediate gain.
It reminds me of the old story of the guy who is trapped on his rooftop when flood waters rose. He didn’t have a boat, but his neighbors saw him and came by in their boat and offered to take him to safety. He said that he trusted God to save him. They told the authorities, and the local police went and tried to get him. Nope, God would take care of him. The National Guard. Nope. He drowned, and when he got to heaven he asked God why He didn’t rescue him. God said, “I sent a boat three times and you refused.”
Get the parallel. Heart offers and people turn it down because Ego convinces them there is some greater, more dynamic, more vindicating way. And those people become convinced that whatever they do is justified. Thus, I get a-holes in my novel.
However, laws are laws in terms of the natural order. If someone scatters a million dollars from a rooftop, people below are really happy! If someone else rolls a piano off that roof, people below aren’t happy. However, the same law of gravity works on that which brings happiness and that which brings destruction.
The law of attraction is the same. We all, awakened or not, contain life energies. When those are focused through our attention, we will draw that which corresponds. Duplicitous, deceitful, controlling, manipulating conspirators will draw the means to carry out their schemes. Their frequencies won’t bring joy, happiness, or anything that uplifts the general spirit and energy of this planet, but they will get what their Ego-desires summon. They push their pianos off of the roof.
Fortunately, so will those who exercise Heart-desire, those in my novel like Eric and others. Higher frequencies and the things they manifest raise the levels of positive consciousness and awareness of this world. Those who raise the level of consciousness shower millions onto this earth.
We can think the good thoughts, focus and visualize Heart values, and create and manifest blessings. It’s a choice — desperation and possible destruction or blessing.
Blessings in the good thoughts, the good visions!
