If we are seeking to use the law of attraction in a spiritual way then perhaps it helps if we know some moral and ethical guidelines to follow in helping us do so. That is why I am posting this Towards a Global Ethic: An Initial Declaration put together by spiritual leaders from all spiritual traditions who were part of the Parliment of World’s Religions. I hope you take the time to read it. http://www.urbandharma.org/pdf/ethic.pdf
On this buisest shopping day of the year, the day after Thanksgiving, I was blessed with an opportunity to pre-record the Partners in Paradise show with Kat and Curtis Kencht, KKZZ, “The Connection”, 1590. The show will air December 1st. They had a holiday theme on giving and this is the first show I have done where I was able to get my most essential message out, that is it time to shift our mass consciousness and use the law of attraction to create a new world no longer based mass consumption, but on contribution with an emphasis on more time for being with one another. I was able on the show to invite law of attraction groups all over to use the holiday season and the theme of light (based on the literal fact that the Earth is closest to the Sun in its orbit this time of year), to come together, meditate, and discuss with family and friends how we need to change this Earth, not through a theme of suffering and lack as the old, but in the Spirit of joyful giving and a willingness to make do with less, so we have time for more soulful connections with one another. On that show I invited dialogue amongst all those who use the law of attraction to share their innovations on various blogs, including this one. And, as soon as the CD of the show is sent to me I will be posting it on this site. I hope all of us can continue to focus on changing the world through feeling good by doing good in this world, so we can make more time for Being and not just incessant doing. Happy Holidays! Lisa
After breathing smoke for more than twenty-four hours inside my home and coping with fires all around, I finally evaucated my residence this morning. On my way out of the San Diego area I went through the Fallbrook fire, escorted by police up the freeway. When I arrived at my destination, I discovered there was no Internet where I was scheduled to stay. I went out to get something to eat and asked if anyone knew a reasonably priced place with Internet. Turns out, there was a VERY NICE place with Internet sheltering people from the fire for only $35 a night (normally this room is $175)! Imagine! So, here I am writing to you once again living the teaching from my book. When Spirit guides us and attracts what we need, instead of our egos attempting to figure it all out, we receive blessings that our egos can’t even comprehend. By staying open to the blessings of Spirit even when an apparent “no” seems like a bummer to our ego, we get blessed not only financially, but by being recipient’s of, and witnesses to, the good and loving hearts of others!
Recently I discovered that I am going to be featured on the Bob and Sheri Radio Show this Thursday, October 25th, 2007 at 9:00 am EST (6:00 am PST). So, I went to learn more about them and was delighted to see this information on Sheri’s blog, as Sheri attempts to make us more aware of WORLD VISION and the urgent need for help in the Dominican Republic!
The following excerpts can be found on her blog …. “It’s hard to fathom this kind of extreme poverty, right at our doorstep. ….The third poorest country in the world – how poor is that, exactly? The average annual income in the Dominican Republic is $2,080 USD. By comparison, the average median income in the United States – $43,318 – is just over 20 times that number…. World Vision, founded over 50 years ago and today the fifth largest relief organization in the world, operates on a simple principal. One sponsor coming alongside one child, and, at minimal cost, providing access to better nutrition, clean drinking water, healthcare, and educational opportunities. Sponsorship, like World Vision itself, isn’t about charity; it’s about finding solutions to root causes of poverty. It’s about helping to create the environment and the opportunity for communities to become self-sustaining. It’s about developing that most precious and valuable resource, the one found in even the most wretched and forgotten places: children. ”
PLEASE READ THIS BLOG!
As you can see from Sheri’s beautiful face in her pictures on her blog, and in her other blogs (like the one about Breast Cancer), it is all about the joy we get in giving and attracting to others, not just ourselves, the abundance we are all met to have!
Sheri, you are a joy!

I had the huge pleasure this past weekend of attending a conference that in part promoted a new book called The House That Love Built: The Story of Linda & Millard Fuller, Founders of Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing by Bettie B. Youngs. I also had the honor of meeting Linda and Millard Fuller who were examples of what I teach in my book.
The book chronicles Millard’s early ambitions to “get rich quick” and how his quest to attract great wealth and become a multi-millionairre in his life eventually lead to the potential dissolution of his marriage with his wonderful and cherished wife, Linda. Through their commitment to a life based upon attracting spiritual values, they turned their lives around and dedicated themselves to service and sacrifice. The end result? Instead of putting the emphasis on one million dollars, they give their wealth away and shift their focus to helping one million people have housing through the founding of Habitat For Humanity.
With great faith and huge love their dedication to serve has now helped millions all over the world. And, despite a recent crisis in 2005 where Linda and Millard were fired from the very organization they had founded and served for nearly thirty years, that faith and love continued as they quickly regrouped and established The Fuller Center for Housing so they could continue their quest to serve, and continue to do so on guiding principles of charity that is not based on the usual Law of Attraction approach of “what’s in it for me?”, but the better principle of “how can I help?”
This is an amazingly inspiring story from two people who live the ten step process advocated in my book. And, I total recommend it to you so you can discover why living “Beyond the Secret” can attract to you a life that is truly worth living.
In Beyond the Secret I emphasize that I agree with that “You” manifest your reality. But, who is the “you” doing the attracting and at what level of consciousness is it operating? My life passion is to help people make that shift in consciousness from an ego based approach (and use of the Law of Attraction) to a spiritual approach. I mention in the book the work of Al Gore and the LiveEarth.org project to help bring attention to the fact that unlike what The Secret book emphasizes we can no longer survive a philosophy that acts as if everyone is entitled to consume as much as they want to live a happy life.
This weekend another film is being released called the 11th Hour that speaks once again to the fundamental and immediate need for us to shift our consciousness and our use of the Law of Attraction. As I say in Beyond the Secret, the law of attraction is neutral. It can be used in both a positive and negative way. NOW is the time to wake up and as I express with passion in the last chapter of my book to shift our consciousness so as the 11th Hour trailer says we can be the generation to finally change the world!

From the heart,
