One-Hundred Twenty (120): Desire Plus Intent Equals Your Dreams Come True
When you desire something deeply and form an intention to acquire it, you will begin to turn over in your mind ways that you might have the object of your desire. Intent to have something usually triggers strong emotional feelings such as excitement and happiness when you think about having the object. You feel motivated to work for it. When desire is coupled with intent and motivation, you begin to believe that you can attain the object your desire.
One–Hundred Seventeen: Beware Of Indecision
Is what you want to manifest an object such as a new lipstick, a paella pan, a found for your garden? Is it a situation you’d like to bring about such as improving your health, garnering a promotion, or mastering a tennis serve? Is it something you want to do for the world such as write a book, establish a business, or create a masterful work of art?
It’s best to develop a crystal clear idea of the object of your desire and stick with it. Why? Because indecisiveness may render you some wild vibrant of what you really want.
One-Hundred Sixteen: Figure Out What You Really Want
If you like to shop, you will love the first step in Law of Attraction, which is to decide on what you want. How do you decide? Well close your eyes and think of something that you either want or need that would make you incredibly happy. Set aside your doubt and pretend for a moment that anything you want is possible. If doubt floods your mind, then just start small and continue taking baby steps in your manifesting efforts until you have proven to yourself how easy it is.
Find A Balance Of Yin And Yang
According to Taoist sage Lao Tzu, each person should find a balance between yin/yang. When faced with a problem, instead of responding with a knee-jerk aggressive action (yang), remain calm and find power and peace in the stillness. Then you will know the right course to the solution. Your thoughts often propel your body into action as a response to a problematic situation. Use your thoughts and the working of the Law of Attraction to draw to yourself solutions and opportunities by remaining in a quiet mindful (yin) place. That is the way of the Tao. You are neither advancing nor retreating. You are not buffeted about by emotions. Instead, you are anchored at the center of inner strength and power.

114) Do No Harm The Buddhist Way
Buddhist philosophy aligns beautifully with the Law of Attraction due to its emphasis on perception, thought, speech, and action. Right thought, for example, means to harm no person or thing through negative thought, including yourself, and to avoid desire and cravings and ill will. Instead, Buddhism emphasizes cultivating thoughts of goodwill, love, joy, and gratitude. Speech should never be critical, harsh, or malevolent, instead, it should be gentle, kind, truthful, and appropriate for time and place. Having a generosity of spirit and gratitude for the blessings you already have are as important in Buddhist practice as they are for deliberately working with the Law of Attraction.
One–Hundred Thirteen (113): Exercise Mind Over Matter
Certain Hindu yogis, sages, siddhis, and holy persons through the ages who have committed their lives to the pursuit of truth purportedly have been able to travel through time and space at will, shrink or expand in size, abstain from food and water without damage to their physical bodies, control their heartbeat and breath, effect miracle healings, and instantly produce tangible objects through the power of thought. Some sources say that the Law of Attraction finds resonance or has roots in tenets of Hinduism and shares the belief that an underlying unifying force of energy in the cosmos governs all that exists.

103) Your Inner World Can Be Made A Reality
Hildegard of Bingen perhaps exemplified the Law of Attraction’s age-old idea that “as you think, so you become.” Some might say that Hildegard’s prodigious works during her lifetime sprang from an inner world in which her thoughts, observations, reflections, and mystical revelation found fecund ground. Her desire to serve the Lord meant following the instructions of a heavenly voice telling her to reveal her knowledge even though her fear of condemnation literally made her ill. Nevertheless, Hildegard worked in tune with her calling and perception of truth — all in alignment with deeply held spiritual beliefs, and the Law of Attraction ensured that her inner contemplative process bore even more fruit. Her desire to serve the Lord meant expressing the knowledge she was being given.

Tonight it was just me and the boys, rehearsing at the theatre.
It is a such a pleasure working with Mauricio and Charles — both of them very dedicated and hard-working young men; good actors and just good dispositions. I took some rehearsal photographs tonight so we could make some advertisements, too.
For the first time, Mauricio was able to see our little stage (which is really a floor space) at Manhattan Theatre Source.
Upon viewing its limits — we’re not sure the blocking will work perfectly. Nevertheless, I think it will be good.
My daughter from another mother, Lauren Arneson [and one of the best Stage Managers this side of the Rio Grande] was there, preparing tech for something (?).
Lauren loved Mauricio and watching us do the American Sign Language! We taught her how to say “nice to meet you” and she can’t wait to see the show!

131) Understand The Role Of Emotions
An effective reinforcement tool for working with the Law of Attraction is an understanding of how your mood affects your ability to attract the results you desire. It may be more difficult than you think to understand how external and internal thoughts can trigger feelings that translate to good or bad moods. Yet such knowledge can be a powerful aid in your manifestation efforts. You’ll know what your mood triggers and recognizing them can help you to quickly redirect when you slip into a negative mood or reinforce a positive one.
Spent the day, recovering, in my apartment. Thus, I will share these wonderful thoughts with you.

130) Engage In Action Without Action
There is a concept in Taoism called “not doing” or wu-wei. In a discussion of generosity of spirit, wu-wei has a place because of its emphasis on living life from the spirit, expressing harmony and love in all you do. Andrew Carnegie demanded his employees work together in a spirit of harmony because he believed it was a critical important factor in achieving success. The power behind wu-wei’s “action without action” is synchronicity. When you set forth an intent or desire in your mind and are harmoniously aligned with the energy of Tao, your power, invisible and strong, works with the laws of the universe.
This was a day for resting my aching back…taking my Tylenol 3. I dropped off the laundry and did some food shopping.
So, I am merely sharing these words of wisdom with you.
