Life as a Buffet

I am a firm believer in the Law of Attraction, and as such every morning I receive an email from Abraham Hicks with an inspirational message to remind me of how the Law of Attraction works.

This morning’s message struck a particular chord with me – presenting a perspective on life, its choices and challenges that I hadn’t considered before.  I quote:

“We want you to enjoy the contrasting experience, just like you enjoy the contrasting buffet. And we want you to reach the place (and practicing Virtual Reality will help you to gain this confidence) that whenever you’re in front of a buffet that has so much that you do like to eat, as well as some that you don’t like to eat, you don’t feel frustrated that there are things there you don’t want to eat. You don’t feel compelled to put them on your plate and eat them; you just pick the things that you like. And the Universe of thought is the same way. You can choose from it the things that you like”

Think about it – when we are at a wedding or business function and there’s a buffet, do we go along the table bemoaning all the food we don’t like or do we take delight in loading our plates with all the things we do like?  Unless there’s absolutely nothing on the table that we like, I suspect it’s the latter.  Similarly, we don’t waste time with ‘I wish they’d served….’ – we quite happily eat whatever is our favourite from among what’s on offer.

So why when it comes to life in general do we spend so much time being unhappy about all the things around us that we don’t like, that we don’t want.  Or equally, being frustrated that what we’d really like in our lives isn’t here right now.

Perhaps if we looked at life as a buffet from which to choose the tastiest morsels with which to load up our plates, we may find we enjoy it so much more.  And we may discover that the Law of Attraction becomes our own personal chef, working behind the scenes to keep cooking up our favourite dishes.  That over time our chef learns what we enjoy the most and starts cooking it more often.  But also that this amazing chef will sometimes serve up something we didn’t order, something that might look a little strange at first  – but if we are brave enough to taste it, we may just discover a new favourite flavour.
