“There are no accidents. Your mind determines what occurs during the day. Everything that seems to happen to you, you asked for and received.” Gorgeous for God: Awakening through A Course in Miracles, by Lisa Natoli
From A Course in Miracles, and here given by Lisa, this quotation is a spiritual enactment of the law of attraction. I would add, from A Course of Love, that the heart is best to inform the mind, and then our desires do not go so awry. If we depend on the mind solely, we try to make decisions from analysis, and this method leaves out guidance.
We don’t want to leave out guidance. It is the best way to live. Of course, we can mislead ourselves, too, thinking that we want to do is actually guidance from the Divine to do that very thing.
So it is best not to be hasty. Present a problem to the Universe (God), and then ask for a solution. The solution will be forthcoming if we listen carefully.
Our own desires may trip us up. But God never does.
