The Law of Attraction - How to Attract Money, Love, and Happiness Free PDF Download

There is a fundamental law of attraction in the universe that guides people’s lives and is the underlying power behind all things. This law was expressed by Napoleon Hill when he said, “We become what we think about.” This profound truth has been stated in many different languages and cultures throughout history. In the second century of the Common Era, the Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius said “Our life is what our thoughts make it.” This idea has been developed over time and has now become a central tenet in many spiritual traditions.

Its truth has spread to many people and has more recently been expressed in a popular quote:

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.1

In relation to the law of attraction, we have extensive references to the idea of karma in the teachings of the Buddha. It is explained to us that our actions don’t only have an effect in this life but in future lives and that this is the reason for our own misfortunes right this minute. If we are to ever escape the endless cycles of misfortune, we will have to change our direction and achieve an end to our sorrows.

If anyone says that a man or woman must reap in this
life according to his present deeds, in that case there
is no religious life, nor is an opportunity afforded for
the entire extinction of sorrow. But if anyone says that
what a man or woman reaps in this and future lives
accords with his or her deeds present and past, in that
case there is a religious life, and an opportunity is
afforded for the entire extinction of a sorrow.

In the New Testament, Christians are very familiar with the phrase “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.”  This idea, presented to Christians and Buddhists alike, has also been presented in many other great religions on Earth and has been expounded by modern philosophers as well. Earl Nightengale has referred to the law of attraction as “The Strangest Secret”. When asked by his readers, “Why do you call it the strangest secret?” he explains that it is a secret that is really “no secret” at all. It’s not because the law of attraction is hidden from view that makes it so strange. In fact, it isn’t hidden. It’s extremely obvious and yet nobody seems to be aware of it. “We become what we think about” is no “secret” at all and that’s what makes it so strange.4
