The Law of Attraction says ‘Like attracts like’.
On the one hand I don’t know how I could have attracted this event into my life, but on the other hand, now, 9 times out of 10, whenever I turn on the radio or the TV, something related to mental health is on. It’s spooky!
I read slowly as if I am reading the text aloud. So it takes me a long time to finish a book. As a result I am particularly selective about what I read. Recently I randomly picked a book, the reason being that I had met the author, Manu Joseph on one occasion and the title of the book made me smile – “The Illicit Happiness of Other People”.
It so turned out that the protagonist of this book is a bright young boy of 17 who ends his own life. The Law of Attraction was at work again. The book was very artfully, insightfully and sensitively written. Without giving away too much, here are a few quotes:
“He had an insight that the world is a charade created by a combination of senses. The reality kept changing depending on what was turned on and turned off inside his brain. He could see more clearly than others that reality is merely a myth of the senses.
He begins to believe that what has happened to him is a glitch in the subterranean process of nature. He believes that he has either seen far into the past of human evolution or deep into the future.
According to him, all of nature is a timeless contest between absolute reality, which is the true state of all matter, and the ’syndicate of life’, which does not want its organisms to see the truth. Because, if you see the truth, you will be in a perpetual state of ecstatic trance, you won’t be desperate to live inside a carbon body. If you see reality you will not want to be a part of the syndicate of life. The purpose of the syndicate is to sustain itself, to exist forever in the minds of its organisms. Therefore, from the beginning of conscience, it has eliminated any neurological network that has the potential to see nature in its true form.”
