The 'Truth' About the Law of Attraction, Part I (Guest Article) - M. D. Berry

LoA: What Is It?

The Law of Attraction is about the capacity of consciousness to change reality in order to enrich our personal experience. It is the expression of need within the structure of emotion and concentration. Without the emotion, there is no recognized need by the consciousness that pervades the universe and therefore no fulfillment of what is desired. Without concentration, there is no clarity of what is needed, and therefore no fulfillment of that need.


When we need or strongly desire something and focus on it, concentrating, seeing it as ours, really feeling our desire for it, and finally, if we maintain this grouping of congruency, we find it in our lives. Why?

Popular literature states that it is because like attracts like: You are “attuning” yourself to the frequency of what you want so that in a sense, you become like what you are seeking. Likes DO NOT attract.

What is really happening is we are identifying what we do not have and then making a space for it in ourselves since there is already space for it in our lives (or we would already have it). This allows the new desire to fit within our space.

Have you ever put together a puzzle or admired some particularly nice brickwork? Then you know what a tessellation is: Regular or irregular shapes or combinations of shapes that interlock completely to cover a surface or plane. But it is the irregular types that we really need for this discussion. Why? Because it best describes how we fit in our world and how we’re able to manifest what we want.

In putting together a puzzle, pieces have “receptors” and “projectors”, so that a complete picture can be made from what is lacking and what isn’t. This is the balance of life. We do not need the love of our lives if we’ve already found it. Nor do we wish for our dream home when we already live in it. It is these that would be cases of likes attracting.

We want something. We create within ourselves the “shape” necessary to receive it. This is done through our desire (feelings), concentrated focus, and visualization of what is wanted. Our expectations bring it the rest of the way and we find it in our lives. Sounds the same? Well, in point of fact, what we’re doing is creating a need or empty space, that demands fulfilling: Nature abhors a vacuum, and so rushes in to fill it, but the only thing that fits that vacuum is the object of our desire. We “firm up” the walls of our “receptor” through the clarity of vision, strength of desire, and congruency of expectation (belief).

This is a case of mirror images, or type of opposite. And opposites do indeed attract.
This applies to everything: Relationships, material possessions, society, in short, any kind of construct you care to name.

Tessellation is the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible. Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher, who was inspired by studying the Moorish use of symmetry in the Alhambra tiles during a visit in 1922. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to modern art. (From WikiPedia)
