The Nature of Aligning and Congealing:

Chips, the perfect example?

As you begin to understand the mechanics, you’ll begin to be able to take control of them and start putting this tool to work for you. Did you ever notice how successful people gather with other successful people? Or how recovering alcoholics are benefited so by attending groups with other recovering alcoholics? Or that at gyms and health clubs, the people are often very healthy gathered together doing the activities which make them fit? Or that in a bag of chips, the small broken bits gather together at the bottom, and the big unbroken ones at the top?

What’s that last one there, a bag of chips? Of course the little ones go to the bottom, they are smaller, and it is natural that they sink to the bottom and gather together with little chips of similar shape and size. How does that show the principle? How do little chips sinking to the bottom of a bag relate to rich people living in rich neighborhoods or joining clubs with other rich people? Don’t you see it?

Manicured trees in neat rows

The Fundamental Principle doesn’t care, it isn’t conscious, it is a simply a matter of fact. Look for a moment at the picture to the left, of course the grass is gathered together, the people on the path gathered and aligned, but look at the trees, do you see how perfectly they have gathered themselves into neat aligned rows? That is because they have been planted in rows! They have been groomed and manicured to grow in neat rows, humans have influenced them to do so, what is important here, is that it has occurred, the trees are aligned and congealed.

The Fundamental Principle Doesn’t Care:

Naturally Growing in Groups

This is so simple it can be elusive. We aren’t looking at the the why, simply the fact. Unlike the trees in the preceding image, the trees to the right were not planted to all grow in groups, nor groomed to grow in neat rows, yet they have done so without anyone’s help. They have grown in this way because of the way they are. The simplicity of this make it hard to embrace: Every aspect of your life is the way it is because of the way you are.

The way you are is creating the life you are experiencing; the Fundamental Principle insists on this. What you are like on the inside, how you see yourself will insist that its reflection be seen on the outside. If your spirit is full, your life will be full. If you have a rich attitude, you will be rich. The Fundamental Principle insists on this. This is why so often we see lottery winners return to poverty in a short time, an impoverished spirit insists on seeing its reflection in an impoverished life. The Fundamental Principle doesn’t care what you like, simply liking money doesn’t attract it to you, however, the rich really do get richer as money gathers around the money they already have.
