An addition to the law of attraction?

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne describes a "law of attraction" that governs the way that we can attract the things we want to ourselves. Byrne explains "negation" one element of this law, "The law of attraction doesn't compute 'don't' or 'not' or 'no' or any other words of negation." As you speak words of negation, such as I don't want a bad haircut, the law of attraction is receiving, "I want bad haircuts." She concludes, "The Law of attraction gives you what you are thinking about- period."

Bart Anderson, teaching from a Native American perspective, explained, "Spirit only knows the collective and connection. It does not recognize "I consciousness" and separation." He continued, "If you want your prayer or intention to be answered, always pray in terms of "we." Include other people in your "stream of consciousness" or people working with the same awarenesses as you. He added, "Make sure that your intent is what is best for the whole. Then Spirit will answer your prayer."

So maybe it is time for an addition to the law of attraction. This additional law would state that the law of attraction only recognizes things that are based on the collective or "we consciousness." If I say I want this for the gratification of my ego, this additional law of attraction does not hear it. However, if you say I want this so it can benefit a number of people including myself, the added law of attraction receives that and provides what you are after.

Of course, that would require seeing ourselves as part of something greater than ourselves.

Most people that I went to law scoohl with did not have a Master's degree or a Ph.D unless they were older students.I went straight to law scoohl out of college; however, I was the second-youngest person in my class- I graduated at 24. Most people seemed to graduate from college, work a few years, then went to law scoohl. It's very expensive so I can understand why they did that. And just remember: more degrees = more debt! My law scoohl debt is over $ 80,000- I can't imagine having debt from a Master's program as well.Having a Master's doesn't really impress law firms or public interest law jobs from what I understand. They pretty much only care that you did well in scoohl, graduated and passed the bar exam. They don't care much about anything else.
