Law of Attraction Require Action or "Effort"?
Many fans of the law of attraction think you don't take any action. You simply sit like a good magnet and wait for your vibes to slide the thing you want over to your chair.
I believe that you usually if not always have to take action of some sort, but that your action isn't effort if it comes from your heart.
That's the key difference.
People run marathons, lift weights, climb mountains, write books, travel on horseback, jump out of planes, make hundreds of sales calls a day, and much more.
It's all action.
But if they do it because they want to do it, because it bubbles out of their passion to do it, then it's not effort.
Again, the law of attraction doesn't mean you don't do anything; it means what you do is effort-free.
For example, I write an astonishing amount of books, articles and blog posts. If you didn't like writing, you'd think what I'm doing is gruelling. But I love what I do. So my action isn't effort. It's simply right action for me.
If you think running up a mountain is insane, you won't take that action because if you did, it would require enormous effort.
When you practice what you learn from the movie The Secret, things do begin to come to you without much effort or action on your part. But that doesn't mean you won't have anything to do.
I was able to attract a new car -- namely Francine -- by knowing what I wanted and then taking action when prompted from the inside to drive over to San Antonio one day.
To me, the law of attraction works to make life easier, but not because you don't take action, but because the action you take is natural for you.
PS - Part of this blog was inspired by seeing famous bodybuilder Frank Zane get in the best shape of recent years -- at age 64 -- by working his butt off, practically starving, doing as much as 90 minutes of cardio a day, and working out three times a day. Was it action? You bet. Was it effort? For you and me, it would be incredible effort. For him, it was right action. I'm sure he'd admit that it was "effort" to do, but it was a chosen effort. That, to me, is the kind of action you want to take. He attracted his ideal body, but he did it with right action -- action that he knew to take based on the ideal he wanted to attract.
