A Letter to Neale: How does ‘attraction’ work?

Feb 25, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale... I don’t know if here is the right place to ask this but, the law of attraction works only with physical objects? or can I ask for freedom, love, health...? Thanks

Neale Responds:

 Dear Friend --- The so-called "Law of Attraction" is one of the most misunderstood concepts in New Thought Spirituality. And to explain all that has been misunderstood about it would take an entire book. In fact, I have written just such a book, and you may find it highly beneficial to read it. The book is titled Happier Than God and you can get it from Amazon or any good book store.

The real question is, what is the most important thing to seek to manifest in your life? Is it freedom? Love? Health? Or is it something else? The information I have received is that most human beings are after the “wrong stuff” in life. The Master Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within you,” and he was profoundly right. Even looking within, the spiritual master does not seek to find such things as freedom, love, or health. The spiritual master seeks only to find her true nature, her actual identity, and to experience that. The spiritual master seeks only the experience of Who He Really Is. When he experiences that then he seeks to express it. When she fully expresses it, these other things you are talking about --- freedom, love, health, etc. --- come to her automatically. This, the Master Jesus also told us. Said he: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you.”

I believe you will find it highly beneficial to read Happier Than God, and hope that you will do so.

Hugs and love,
