Contributor: Law of attraction fan Umberto Fonte of powerfulintentions.org
After watching the movie The Secret I decided that the law of attraction was something that was worth trying out. So, the next day I created a wallpaper for my laptop that showed a large piece of land with beautiful pine trees. My intention was to purchase a piece of land like this one, and I wanted there to be no guessing on the Universe’s part what I wanted it to look like!
Three months later, my land near Colorado’s Mount Elbert was paid in full.
One day while I was driving to the land, I remembered something: On a day like that one thirty years earlier, while I was driving past Mount Elbert, I had made a statement in my heart that if there was ever a perfect place I’d want to live and call home, it was right here.
That–and the wallpaper–must have been all it took!
These days, I have a new intention: to see the completion of a new round house made out of an old silo on the land.
I’m looking forward to everything that’s to come.
It’s spirituality for the rest of us.
Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?
Why are their results so difficult to replicate?
