The Secret and spirituality
In his article The “Secret” Is Really No Secret At All, Dennis Merritt Jones, DD says “There is, without question, a spiritual element that is infused in the Law of Attraction that is no secret.
“Buddha certainly knew the power of the Law of Attraction, when, in the Dhammapada, he is quoted as saying, ‘Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.
“Suffering follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draw it… joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.’
“Likewise, the great teacher Jesus proved he too understood the same principle when he is quoted as saying, ‘It is done unto you as you believe.’ (Matt. 8:13) That sounds like the Law of Attraction to me.”
