We come to the conclusion of our survey of the history of the spirituality – based idea called, the Law of Attraction. It has taken us many centuries to observe and follow its stages of development and form within the various eras, cultures and perspectives from many important figures from ancient times to the present day. We have learned how the Law of Attraction is explained as a magnetic force where ‘like attracts like’ is theorized as a metaphysical law. The idea behind the Law of Attraction is to mentally draw to yourself prosperity and wealth, since that is what God apparently wants you to do. Prosperity and good health is considered a sign of one’s self-realization and spiritual growth (an idea promoted within the New Thought movement beginning in the late 1880s) . Manifesting a positive outcome for yourself through using the power of your mind, feelings and emotions is the secret to make all your dreams come true.
Prosperity Consciousness, is particularly as it has been marketed in America, has long been an interest of people looking for tangible ways to succeed in their lives. Books by Napoleon Hill, especially, “Think and Grow Rich” and Wallace Wattle’s “The Science of Getting Rich” has sold millions of copies. These books promote the power of Positive Thinking, faith and affirmations as key components for becoming a success in life, and are still amazingly popular. “The Science of Getting Rich” was first published in 1910, and has remained in print to this day. Positive thinking techniques, will power, creative visualization and the mental science approach to health was applied by Wattle to give readers the key into attracting wealth.
William Walker Anderson was a prolific New Thought author and editor and is credited with coining the term the “Law of Attraction.’ He writes in his book, Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World“:
“We speak learnedly of the Law of Gravitation, but ignore that equally wonderful manifestation, THE LAW OF ATTRACTION IN THE THOUGHT WORLD. We are familiar with that wonderful manifestation of Law which draws and holds together the atoms of which matter is composed – we recognize the power of the law that attracts bodies to the earth, that holds the circling worlds in their places, but we close our eyes to the mighty law that draws to us the things we desire or fear, that makes or mars our lives.”
The primary equation that the Law of Attraction rests upon is the metaphysical claim that thought equals energy. This is an ancient philosophical and spiritual formula based on the assertion that the manifested universe has been created through an ineffable cosmic consciousness or “divine mind.” In his book, Atkinson lays it out this way:
When we come to see that Thought is a force – a manifestation of energy – having a magnet-like power of attraction, we will begin to understand the why and wherefore of many things that have heretofore seemed dark to us. There is no study that will so well repay the student for his time and trouble as the study of the workings of this mighty law of the world of Thought – the Law of Attraction.
Could this be true? On what verifiable foundation is this claim by Atkinson resting upon? Are there any other possible explanations why the Law of Attraction should be considered more than a pseudoscientific theory?
For Bernard Poolman, there is another explanation that seems far more plausible. Poolman was a noted businessman, author and spiritual practitioner who said he had worked with his own spirit guides and mentors before questioning the entire framework and effectiveness of the spiritual activities he once engaged in. After decades of investigation, he offered this conclusion which I share here:
So, existence exists as One Word. This is the Revelation that will be proven that existence exists. Within common sense you can work it out now – that existence exists as One Word: Stimulation.
Energy is never real, because Energy only exists when there is stimulation and the stimulation is always external and I mean if you or another person Stimulate the point and you Simulate it – that means you’re accepting it – you’re gonna have an experience, an elation in that relationship that elation is your Joy, your Love, everything. Love by itself doesn’t exist! It requires stimulation – that’s why no-one can actually stand for Life, because you want Life to be ‘unconditional’. Why do you want it unconditional? So that you can have Choice. So that you can have the choice? to be stimulated the way you want to. Bugger everyone else! It doesn’t matter what’s happening to them, they have the same power. They have Choice! They have Chosen to be Here – the fact that they’re in a country where there is no food – has got nothing to do with me! I mean, they can, they must plant something, I mean, they must not starve. I’m quite happy this side, I’m Stimulated! I know they’re not stimulated, but that’s not my problem! While I’m stimulated, I am not even aware of their existence – which is so wonderful! Please, stimulate me, then I don’t have to worry about anyone else! Just keep me stimulated!
But what about the all of these religious, philosophical and spiritual masters who claim that the Law of Attraction is a real, objective, magnetizing force operating in existence?
They will not explain to you how reality practically works or why it doesn’t work. They will stimulate you to have an experience and tell you to not worry about reality. Christianity is doing that, the Muslims are doing that, the Hindus, every Religion are doing one thing: that is stimulating you not to care about what is going on in Reality, and it’s Stimulating you to worry about what happens to you AFTER you are DEAD.
The Masters did the same. Did they really Master anything? There is not a Master in existence that’s mastered anything. The Masters mastered the way to stimulate their followers effectively to become mentally incapable of realising what is Here. Incapable of making any movement to actually care for Earth. That’s why we’ve created a Consumerism System.
In Spite of all the Great Masters that’s ever been on Earth – what have we done? We have not moved, we have not evolved. What is evolution at this stage? Evolution depends on Stimulation. Stimulated on how to become ‘more’. “I’m evolving! I am more Intelligent!’
Have a look – take your stimulation away, what happens to you? You’ll find you go into a depression, you go into a boredom, and you’re unable to get out unless you stimulate yourself – which is what? You’re experiencing the system dying because it’s not being stimulated. That’s what you’re experiencing when you’re in a depression and when you’re in a form of boredom – you’re experiencing the absence of stimulation!
And then you start searching and suddenly the next moment you “meet someone.” The ONE that can stimulate you. And immediately your whole body is on fire = “I’m stimulated. Please stimulate me – I don’t mind! I’ll exist as long I’m being stimulated.“
That is the whole point where everyone is existing. Because what do you want? You want to be stimulated. “Give me enough stimulation and I will exist, I’m satisfied. As long as that stimulation is to my approval, the way I like it, I’ll be Happy.
“Let it not be the way I like it, and I want to discard it – I’m not Stimulated by this.” I mean, this is just not acceptable. “I want to be stimulated like THIS! I have CHOICE! I can CHOOSE how I want to be stimulated. This is the way I want to be stimulated. And that’s all I’ll accept.”
You will not move unless you’re stimulated. Which means stimulation is your God. Whosoever stimulates you, controls you.
Money is what? Stimulation.
Without stimulation you will not move. Motivation is really just a nice word for stimulation.
So what is the Law of Attraction, really?
It’s the Law of Stimulation. Everybody now gets together and stimulate each other to Focus on the Positive! So now, the positive cannot exist without the negative, you automatically stimulate the negative. Which is perfectly fitting into the End Times – which is the perfection of the whole point of being stimulated according to a particular book and a particular prophecy so that it can become true. Why was it written? To make sure you create it!
Therefore you are Stimulating the End of Existence through what? Stimulating the Law of Attraction. How do you do it? By creating the Absolute Positive Polarity and holding it in place – no matter what! So that the Absolute Negative Polarity can Manifest, because you are Stimulating both! They cannot exist Separate from each other.
Light and Darkness exists together.
Positive and Negative exist together. Because the very moment something moves through stimulation, both Positive and Negative exist. Positive and Negative requires Stimulation to exist. Without Stimulation neither positive or negative exist. Now within the Law of Attraction, we are stimulating the Positive and the Negative, and we say “Law of Attraction.” “Let’s think Positive!” – which is, “Let’s Stimulate the Positive.”
So now we Stimulate Positive, Stimulate Positive, Stimulate Positive – I mean, you have to do it, and do it, and do it, and that it takes all of your attention, all your stimulation. stimulating it, stimulating it, stimulating – but what are you actually creating? You’re creating the stimulation which you use up – while in waiting is the negative, waiting to be activated once the stimulation crashes, once the stimulation can no longer stand. And what manifests the negative? BAM! In one singular moment – we call it = ‘an Act of God!’ – because in a single moment, God wiped out existence. But you’ve stimulated it to be a single moment. While positive stimulation took you a long time – it was not instantaneous – it took a long time – you built up the negative to manifest itself in a single moment.
So, existence in a single moment will change through the negative, because that’s how it has been created. Which is why a market crash for instance, is something that happens fast, while a positive market is something that builds very slow. The positive is always very slow, because no one understands the Principle of Stimulation.
If this sounds like a hard teaching, it is. Bernard Poolman liked to say he was not a “guru,” but “here to bring Uhuru!” What should those of us who bought into the whole program of believing in the Law of Attraction do? How do we move beyond past our present understanding that the law of stimulation is in fact the operating princile within human consciousness under the guise of “attraction.”
Forgive all the stimulations, because the stimulations are your addictions. They are based in geometrical patterns. The Sacred Geometry! I mean, isn’t it beautiful? If we can paint a beautiful picture about Sacred Geometry so that we can justify our stimulations which is our addictions to specific stimulations that makes us “special.”
Test the shit out for yourself and stimulate it yourself to see how it works. Then find out whether you’re justified in stimulating something for your pleasure without making sure that this part of Existence that is there as you as another being – who is actually understanding what the fuck they’re doing, and what they get themselves in for and that it is possible to exist without stimulation.
We’ve existed only through stimulation.
We have not existed as Life in fact.
Life is Here. Life does not require stimulation, Life doesn’t have a Beginning or an End. Life has been stimulated into illusions and being abused as these illusion called ‘Man’ and ‘Nature’. Everything that exists as a system is an illusion! Because the system is not aware of itself and how it functions. It is not aware how it is stimulated to get a result. You are not aware of all the points that stimulate you – have a look. You are living according to those points of Stimulation in your life that you like.
Everything in your Life exists as One Word. Who you are, is who you are right now because of how you’ve been stimulated to be. Everything you believe, every religion and every book you read is a point of stimulation. Every philosophy that exists is a point of simulation. The totality of Science is an observation of stimulation. Science is nothing extraordinary! It is people that are stimulated to watch stimulation – and according to that, they write down within their own observation of stimulation. That we call, Science! Isn’t it wonderful? It’s Profound! We’ve worked out Reality!
I mean, it’s One Word: Stimulation.
 One of the books housed at the famous Nag Hammadi Library, “On the Origin of the World,” there is given a curious Gnostic creation myth where Adam, the primordial man, has been created by “seven rulers” (the “Archons”) without a soul. They are not pleased with their creation because the creature is devoid of life and is unable to move itself, so they abandon the man. Yet it is through the divine intervention of the spiritual feminine principle symbolized by Sophia-Zoe (Gk. “Wisdom-Life”) animates Adam by “sending her breath to him,” after which Adam is able to attain consciousness and speak. The Archons are surprised to discover that Adam has been animated and are even more displeased. They decide to place Adam in Eden, content with the fact that the man is still unable to move… until Sophia’s daughter, Eve is dispatched by her mother to rescue Adam, who can only writhe helplessly along the ground. Eve speaks and commands Adam, “Adam come to life. Rise from the ground!” Adam immediately obeys and stands up and exclaims, “You shall be called the mother of the living. For you have given me life!” Here is a clue of a half-understood principle of the Law of Stimulation, where Adam is stimulated into action.
