The Attractive Power - Desire Force - Page 1

WE have discussed the necessity of focusing on what you love, that your desire may have full strength with which to work. Supposing that you have mastered this part of the task, or at least started on the road to mastery, I will now call your attention to another important branch of the subject. I allude to the subject of mental focus. I mean the focus arising from your focusing on what you love. The focus I am now referring to is that occasioned by the habit of having the attention attracted to and focused on only what you love.

In order to attain a thing it is necessary that the mind should fall in love with it, and be conscious of its existence, almost to the exclusion of everything else. You must get in love with the thing you wish to attain, just as much as you would if you were to meet the person you wished to marry. But, I do mean that you should maintain interest in everything else in the world that you love - that will do, for the mind must have recreation and change. But, I do mean that you must be so "set" upon the desired thing that all else will seem of secondary importance. A person in love may be pleasant to everyone else, and may go through the duties and pleasures of life with good spirit, but underneath it all they are humming to themselves "Just One Love;" and every one of their actions is bent toward getting that Love, and making a comfortable home for them. Do you see what I mean? You must get in love with the thing you want, and you must get in love with it in earnest, an "everyday" sort of love, the good old-fashioned kind, that used to make it impossible for a young person to get to sleep unless they took a walk around their best love's house, just to be sure it was still there. That's the real kind!
