Law of Attraction — it’s not a moral issue, it’s force and effect

This whole “LOA” thing is most frustrating because you’ve got people who DON’T understand how it WORKS telling others how it works. Then folks wonder why it doesn’t work. The bottom line is whatever you focus on in the Now lays the groundwork for what your future experience will be.  By your FOCUS, you’re saying to the Universe “I want to feel more of WHAT I FEEL when I focus on this.

Lotsa folks get caught up in LOA as a moral issue, saying “you can’t just ignore all the problems of the world.” It’s NOT a moral issue (neither is gravity btw), it’s force and effect, it’s HOW the process works. Whatever you pay attention to, you attract more of. You get what you think about, whether you want it not. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll attract a car crash or race riot or be the victim of a criminal act or wrongfully charged with child sex trafficking.

A transcript: Matthew McConaughey | 5 Minutes for the NEXT 50 Years of Your LIFE

This is a transcript of the vid at
Matthew McConaughey, more than a pretty face. Spoiler, the good stuff is at the end but you won’t get it unless you hear it all. Knowing who we ARE is hard. It’s hard. Give yourself a break. ELIMINATE who you are NOT first, and you’ll find yourself where you need to be.
“I’m gonna talk to you about some things that I’ve learned in my journey. Most from experience some of them I heard in passing. Many of them I’m still practicing, but all of them I do believe are true. Life is not easy. It is not. Don’t try to make it that way. Life’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now and it won’t ever be. Do not fall into the trap, the entitlement trap, of feeling like you’re a victim. You are not. Get over it and get on with it.

On calling out friends on toxic behavior

A friend asked in a Facebook group, “Can you confidently and openly call your friends out on their toxic behavior? Or are you afraid they will take it wrong and you would prefer not hurt them?” I said “We call each other out on our stuff, and are glad when they do the same for us.” He responded, “Man, I wish guys shared this mentality.”
I said, “The ones who can’t and don’t didn’t recognize or target any role models for it. Their dads weren’t taught that, nor their dad’s dads. It was a harder life then so the rules were diff. Doesn’t make it right but leaves them without tools to build “real” friendships.  Hanging out and partying is fun to a point, then as friends slip away into other relationships and other priorities, so many guys are left alone with insufficient communication skills, which makes them lead lives that could be much happier if they’d practiced that skill all along.

Cursive Writing and Analog Clocks train our minds to be analytical

Primitive methods help us understand the future

On the loss of cursive writing and analog clocks, a Facebook friend remarked “Life moves forward and it’s no big deal. We no longer use sun dials.” It actually is a HUGE deal when we lose analytical skills that are easy to teach. Those skills teach us to extrapolate correct answers to complex questions. They help us understand increments and how one thing ties to another, how things are “related.” All our societal woes can be tied to not understanding how everything is related. There are entire generations who were not taught to analyze data so they can’t spot or decipher clues, they mistake historical references and fight wars over it, not knowing they don’t understand.

Andrea’s March 2021 Editorial

March 2021

Hello and welcome to the March 2021 edition of Horizons Magazine. Spring has definitely sprung, As the oaks over my property get their leaves back, the jungle is returning! In October when they finished building the house next door, it took away many oaks and pines that shielded my property from view. Suddenly partially exposed, I planted 30+ loquat saplings and 40+ turks’ cap bushes just inside the property line and they are all coming up. Sweet!

In October I also began growing vegetables and herbs from seed: The bush beans, collards, kale and lemongrass are in the ground and I’ve been harvesting every few days. On the kitchen windowsill, I harvest daily from the celery, romaine and scallions I grew from grocery scraps. Parsley from seed is taking off in the hanging pots outside. I love parsley.

Andrea’s February 2021 Editorial

February 2021

Hello and welcome to the February 2021 edition of Horizons Magazine.  Friends are glad for the new administration. For me the last 4 years went quickly. Once it was clear at the first press conference that he wasn’t telling the truth, I stopping listening. Period. I know friends in the military with kids who received benefit from his policies. It didn’t affect me either way. Covid 19 affected me and that was mishandled but otherwise, despite the horrors that I know otherwise occurred, I was unaffected as a result of the policies of the last 4 years.  Yes, some I knew had immigration fears but that wasn’t me personally.

I lost “friends” in the last 4 years, not due to difference of politics, but due to them becoming so rabidly mean and hateful on Facebook, name calling, mocking those they opposed.  But it’s not fun to be around folks like that anyway so it’s no real loss.  I’m all about keeping it real and keeping it fun.   Continue reading

Please watch over your elders, they may be scam targets

Going thru old files page by page looking for a legal doc that might be mis-filed, I’m reminded that my husband and father in law fell prey to many investment scams. Lee died in 96, Dad lived just 3 miles from me. I invited him to live with me after I stopped by one day after getting no answer. The rule was he would “call me each day to make sure I was ok.” He said he heard the phone ring but he was doing the daily mail so he didn’t answer.

Um, he’s 84, what kind of “daily mail” was he doing? I asked if I could help him and he had me sit at the dining table. It was covered with dozens of scam mail (this was 1999) solicitations and he spent much of each day filling them out and sending them in. That and attending “business lunches” which were those free restaurant meals for seniors who sit thru the investment opp presentation. The rest of every day was watching news and Jerry Springer, then more news. He came to live with me in 99. I asked if he could help me feed the squirrels each day. Continue reading
