glance, to be the case. Sheldrake thinks differently. He believes the universe learns, just as we do. Nature progresses,the laws of nature also progress, just as human laws evolve over time. Sheldrake's years ofresearch have led him to conclude that the Laws of the Universe, so-called, are habits it haslearned over time. The more habits are repeated "the more probable they become, other things being equal." Habitsof past members of the species are transmitted, he says, "through a kind of non-local resonance,called morphic resonance." "Many kinds of organisms have habits," Sheldrake writes, "but only humans have laws." Through what he calls Morphic resonance "the patterns of activity in self-organizing systems[which we are; which the universe is] are influenced by similar patterns in the past, giving eachspecies and each kind of self-organizing system a collective memory," which is then integratedinto what we humans call Laws but are actually habits of the species - and habits of the cosmos. If Sheldrake is right, and I'm not arguing that he is, his theories would seem to suggest a differentview of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction, therefore, may not be an eternal law but ahabit progressing toward Law status. This "Law" may likely be a work in progress, not a final fact. What does it mean when we hint that the Law of Attraction may be a work in progress and not aneternal law set in motion at the time of, or before, the origin of our universe, solar system, andearth? The implications, actually, are pretty exciting. In Self-Creation by George Weinberg, Ph.D., Weinberg indicates that "Every time you act you addstrength to the motivating idea behind what you've done." What this means is, "The act retypes the motivating message in your mind. When not acted on,the message becomes weaker as if fading from an electronic screen. When it is acted on itbecomes brighter, louder, recharged, prompting more of the same acts." In other words, "Actingon any belief or feeling makes you believe or feel it more." There is a two stage effect of any act, Weinberg says. "The immediate effect is to satisfy,assuage, reduce the motivating impulse behind it. The ultimate effect, however, is to strengthenit." The paranoid person, for example, who checks and rechecks the locks feels first stage relief,"and ultimate reinforcement of his paranoia." How does what Weinberg is saying tie into our premise about "Law" of Attraction? By the way, Self-Creation is not a book that mentions the Law of Attraction. It's about how ouracts, our behaviors, intensify the motivating message behind the acts we perform which makesthem, to a certain degree, habits - for better or worse. Reading his book we discover that "Any acts of avoidance based on fear will entrench the fear,"
