SOUL ISSUES: “Islands”
(Birds of a feather flock
By Reverend Liz
I was talking to a
colleague once and we were discussing ways to deal with the world’s ills.One would be to send people of like
mind and behavior to islands where they would be with others similar to themselves. “We could send all the
murderers to one island, all the rapists to another, and so on; and they could all do their aberrant behaviors
to each other and learn from the experience.”
When dwelling on this
idea, we came to the conclusion that this is the way it already is. The islands are not physical islands, but
islands of thought and consciousness. So criminals and those who give their attention to crime, find each other
and cluster together, as do people committed to helping the world, or those who share a common interest is
sports, computers, or music.
You and I already
live on an island of people who match our intentions, interests, and habits of thought. That is why you keep
attracting the same kind of person in your dating life, work, or friendships. Your mind magnetizes people of
like configuration, for better or worse. If you like the kinds of people and situations you are attracting, amp
up your signal. If you do not like them, change it.
explains why there are people or kinds of people on the planet you will never meet because your beliefs, values,
and lifestyle are so far afield from theirs that you will never be in the same place at the same time.
Meanwhile, there are people or kinds of people who are so aligned with your beliefs, values, and lifestyle that
you will surely meet or keep meeting.
Internet Web pages
are a good example of islands of consciousness. When you click on a Website and get involved in its material,
you will usually find references and links to many other sites like it. Political sites lead to other political
sites, movies to movies, and dating to dating. Whatever site you are on gives outlet to more of its own island,
or unique world.
If you are going to
live on an island, make it one you would choose. Be the company you value and seek those of like mind who will
find their way to your shores.
Affirmation: “I use the Law of Attraction to bring
people and situations to my life that I value and desire.”
