Time and again I have made all my friends aware that I am a great fan, follower and advocate of “The Law of Attraction.”
For me, Law of Attraction has become my way of life. I always watch and vouch my thoughts and compare the results.
For more than last two decades, I am trying to train my mind to always think positive, I am successfull too up to some extent. After all, I am a human being and have weaknesses that provoke me not to think positive and push me towards negative thinking. But I have learned that if I pay regular attention on my thought process and attune my brain to produce only positive thoughts, I can stop thinking negative.
Whenever, I tend to think negative, I forcefully remind my self the story of a Brahmin and a Celestial tree. I am sharing the story here for the benefit of all.
The story warns about the need to keep a constant check on our minds to avoid negative thoughts, and brings about a realization of the highly attuned knowledge which already existed in India thousands of years ago.
Here goes the story of the Obliging Tree:-
Once upon a time there was a Brahmin who was very weary after having walked under the harsh lndian sun, exhausted and worn out, he saw a great leafy tree by the roadside. He lay down to rest in its shadow although the ground was hard and rugged. The man thought about how pleasant it would be to be able to lie on a softer bed, and no sooner had the thought crossed his mind than a comfortable bed appeared.The man understood that this was a celestial tree, of the kind that grant wishes and make them come true.While he was lying stretched on the comfortable bed, it occurred to him how pleasant it would be to have someone massage his numb feet. At once, there appeared an extremely beautiful young woman who gave him a relaxing massage.The man, feeling much better now, felt the pangs of hunger and thirst. He then thought about how enjoyable it would be to taste a sumptuous meal washed down with a good wine. Immediately the most succulent of banquets appeared before him.The Brahmin ate and drank to his heart’s content, thinking about how fortunate he was. Suddenly the thought came to his mind “What would happen if a tiger were to attack me now?”A tiger appeared and devoured him.
Here the “celestial tree” works as a kind of antenna for the Law of Attraction, which captures and transmits the wishes of those who lean on it, so that the power of the Universe can make them a reality. The Brahmin turns this gift to his advantage, by asking for the fulfillment of sensual and self-centered pleasures.While in this state of euphoria, a negative thought escapes his mind, which on coming true, ends his life.
