Peanut - You are so right! Whatever we focus on, wherever we put our attention, this is what we draw to us.

I've heard it said: energy flows where our thoughts go. So true.

Does the golden rule "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" apply?

Sonia, In answer to your question, "Does "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" apply?" I would say "Harm ye none, do what ye will", and "Lay down no law, lest you yourself become entangled by it." Namaste and Blessed Be!

The Law of Attraction is based on thought and the vibration of thought. It asks us to be focused, grounded and centered. Treating others as we wish to be treated is action that draws like action to us. Dani

Chinese artist, Chen Chiju, wrote,"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. But better not expect others to do unto you what you would do unto them." Your own experience is your best authority. The Truth can be proven through Scientific Experiment. Put your own "Belief System" to the test. You can repeat the experiment and always get the same results. The definition of insanity is to continue the same action or strategy and continue to get the same unwanted result. It is a common complaint of people that even though they themselves have always been kind, nice, friendly, helpful, faithful and honest, others continue to abuse them, use them, take them for granted or are unfaithful. People always take advantage of their good nature. Love yourself, be kind to yourself, respect yourself, protect yourself and treat yourself well...then others will treat you the same as you treat yourself. In the traditional Judeo-Christian Bible, Jesus is quoted as saying, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you', and "Judge not lest ye be judged", and "Ye without sin, cast the first stone." All of these mean basically the same thing. This is how those of Jewish background interpreted His words. The Gnostic interpretation of the same words is "Lay down no law lest ye yourself become entangled by it." Trying to live by "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is very entangling and frustrating. Others don't change and one blames oneself, constantly conscientiously, one beats ones self up while trying to kill the others with kindness. Then one gets angry and begins to judge the others because they are not treating you the way you are treating them. "Women who love too much" practice "doing unto others what they would have others do unto them" One failed relationship after another they learn to be a better doormat, and wonder what they are doing wrong.It is better to be kind to yourself, love yourself, demand respect. Then others will treat you the way you treat yourself. When you find yourself dealing with contradictions, check your premises. Something you previously believed was wrong. In light and love.

Thanks for the info. Well I for one think I am a good person. I do quite a bit of volunteer work, especially with our homeless. I believe I am focused and grounded but at times I tend to attract the wrong kind. Why do you think that is?

Sonia, If you want to call me for a reading, 1-800-233-2600, ext.1232, I can address your situation more personally. I can say that we are often judged by the company we keep. If you hang-out with the wrong people, the right people may not approach you. Be kind to everyone, but keep strangers at arms length until you know who they are and what they want. Don't allow them into your private and personal life until you know what charecter of person this is. Choose your friends wisely and don't get in cars with strangers! I wish you happiness.

Just want to add to my previous entry,(6/2/09, 3:56am)...I did not mean to leave out the "Men who love too much"..same applies to them..thus "Nice guys finish last." Love and Blessed Be!

Sonia - In attracting the same type of people (or situations) to us, we are repeating patterns in our lives. The first thing that we need to do is recognize that pattern (which you have), The next thing is to do something about it. Look to what is the common denominator between the people that come into your life that are not good for you. Then look at why you need to have that in your life. Once you discover why they are there, you can stop the pattern. :) Please remember that as readers we are here 24/7 to assist you with this. Blessings, Bonnie

"sometimes we attract from that because we think the most very impossible things that we never met in our life but through elaborating in our mind we can reach that :)
