I have been a follower of spiritual teachings for about a decade, particularly the Law of Attraction. Most of the people I have met who are interested in this kind of teaching are on the liberal end of the political spectrum. I have to say that this surprises me, given the teaching’s emphasis on the importance of being in charge of your own destiny and not relying on other people to achieve your goals. Any thoughts on this?
I have noticed this tendency as well. I’m not sure I have a great answer for you, but I’ll take a stab at it.
One possibility is that this teaching is not yet mainstream. And this may be, in large part, because of the discrepancy you point out.
Perhaps this is related to a tendency for conservative people to be more traditional in their religious or spiritual leanings as well. I think of the bent of the messages from conservative politics. It seems they often seem to speak to (or pull on) that more traditional spiritual leaning.
The law of attraction works equally well for all people, of course! But one has to be introduced to it to know what it is, and use it. I met a minister in a London Unity Church once who talked to my mother and I about his reason for holding services on Sunday nights. He explained that his spiritual teachings were originally meant to be “for the masses.” And given that many of those masses attend traditional services on Sunday mornings, he made the message available to all by holding services at a different time than these other services. I remember thinking at the time (quite a long time ago) that he was brilliant to do so!
Here’s hoping that more people find their way to the wonderful gift of this path, like you have!
Blessings and Love to you in all you do,
