When you start to look into concepts like “The Law of Attraction” and popular books such as “The Secret” you will notice that these ideas were first presented in the 1920’s and earlier. Many are found in the New Thought Movement in the late 1800’s.
The New Thought Library has many great resoouces including an online book of “The Secret of The Ages” by Robert Collier at this link.
Except from the chapter “Law of Attraction”
You cannot receive good while expecting evil.
You cannot demonstrate plenty while looking for poverty.
“Blessed is he that expecteth much, for verily his soul shall be filled.”
Solomon outlined the law when he said:
“There is that scattereth, and increaseth yet more;
And there is that withholdeth more than is meet,but it tendeth only to want.
The liberal soul shall be made fat; And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.”
The Universal Mind expresses itself largely through the individual. It is continually seeking an outlet. It is like a vast reservoir of water, constantly replenished by mountain sp rings. Cut a channel to it and the water will flow in ever-increasing volume. In the same way, if you once open up a channel of service by which the Universal Mind can express itself through you, its gifts will flow in ever-increasing volume and YOU will be enriched in the process.
