I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again it boggles my mind how Haanel published this book so many decades ago, is so absolutely accurate and was so far ahead of his time!! AMAZING, OUTSTANDING & GENIUS all at once!!
“Difficulties, inharmonies, and obstacles, indicate that we are either refusing to give out what we no longer need, or refusing to accept what we require.” -Haanel 15.3
It is becoming more and more clear to me that if you are not ready to embrace what is good for you then it is less and less likely you will commit to the work required to make the change you need to become your true self (world within and world without).
Up until this point have been unwilling (whether consciously or subconsciously) to accept what I require. This I can now see clearly.
“We cannot obtain what we lack if we tenaciously cling to what we have. We are able to consciously control our conditions as we come to sense the purpose of what we attract, and are able to extract from each experience only what we require for our future growth. Our ability to do this determines the degree of harmony or happiness we attain.”
I have been advised several times throughout my adult life how I have the great attribute of tenacity. It is only now as I write this that I realize it is most ties to my detrement. If we are able to “control our conditions as we come to sense the purpose of what we attract” then we, as humans, in proper logical theory, can use that control to effectively discard what we have and replace it with what we require through the law of substitution.
“The inexorble requirements of growth demand that we exert the greatest degree of attraction for what is perfectly in accord with us. Our highest happiness will be best attained through our understanding of, and conscious cooperation with natural laws.” – Haanel 15.9
Attract it and the universe will bring it to you. But without unwavering certainty nothing that is in perect accord with you will be attracted.
I know more than ever where my progress lacks!!!!!
