Comfort in Chaos

SO MUCH THIS

The Druid's Well

Chaos_arrowWhen my ex and I first got together, The Secret had just come out. He was already a big fan of What the Bleep Do We Know, and I had never been exposed to the slick marketing of the New Age publishing machine.  I would like to think that my critical thinking skills would not have been so easily overcome, but the combination of glossy visuals and a desire to please a new partner overwhelmed my rational brain fairly quickly. And, if I’m totally honest, the fact that I already had practice in spell craft (a form of targeted manifestation) also made me easy prey for this particular mode of thinking.

The idea that one can manifest one’s own reality is quite seductive. It provides the oft-craved illusion of control. Life feels so unpredictable, and the promise of being able to create every desire is balm in the wound of uncertainty.

  1. Thanks so much for the reblog!

    • Thank you for explaining this so succinctly. I try frequently to communicate this concept, how that Law of Attraction thinking becomes a tool for elitism and harm. You’re spot on and I appreciate you writing about it.
