The Most Profound Question

I’ve been wanting to share this video for some time. For those of you who know about Abraham-Hicks, this needs no introduction.

For those of you who don’t, here’s a brief one: Esther Hicks has been channeling Abraham for many years now. She and Abraham have been featured prominently in “What the Bleep Do We Know?” The essence of the teachings in “The Secret” came from Abraham-Hicks (although, unfortunately, they were not given due credit). Their collaboration has produced many, many books focused on The Law of Attraction, but this video is such a vibration raiser that I make a point to go look at it at least every few months.

  1. The ride is worth it. Mmm. Yes. I am not entirely in favour of Abraham-Hicks, I find some of it hard to swallow, and while it is possible to curl up and die in far less foul circumstances than a concentration camp and possible to survive a concentration camp, I think we only create our reality in how we perceive it and respond to it. Primo Levi did not call Adolf Hitler into existence so he could spend time in Auschwitz. And yet- we do create our perceptions of reality.

    What do you mean, vibration-raiser?

      Yes, I realize it’s controversial. And I also believe that we create our perceptions of reality. But Jesus said – “It is done unto you as you believe.” I’ve always viewed that as a possible support for the idea of the “Law of Attraction.” As well as many of my own personal experiences.

      I also agree that some of the bigger, darker pictures of existence are much harder to explain, but are most likely related to a collective set of beliefs and perceptions of reality.

      Vibration raiser – positive energy, fun way of looking at things. Religion and spirituality can be so serious much of the time and the question about the dog getting bugs in its eyes and Abraham’s response is lighthearted and fun – at least it feels that way for me.

    I loved the last question and her answer. Unfortunately, for some, the ride isn’t worth it and they step off tof it. That saddens me for the person and for the world who is deprived of their gifts.

    I don’t know what the total answer to tragedy is, but I’ll bet it involves kindness and reaching out to those whose desperation and loneliness eat away at their spirit like a corrosive acid until there is so little left of their spirit that they can no longer feel it. That has got to be the worst kind of loneliness.

    But kindness is an acid remover. It helps the spirit to shine and grow and to reveal itself to the person on whom kindness is shown and to the person being kind. That’s a powerful thing and often costs nothing.

    Thank you for being kind and for the other gifts you share, Cathy. You make my world better for being in it.

      This is a beautiful reminder of how kindness not only helps the receiver but the giver. And I think they’re two sides of the same coin. And I loved the last question and her answer, too. It is so great to be able to see it on YouTube. What a world we live in? Thank you for your friendship and your wisdom, Russ. I means so much.



  3. Hi Cathy This is one of my favourites as it so takes what seems to be a silly idea and turns it into a great learning. Yes, the darker examples are hard for us to take on board but I don’t always see them through the law of attraction lens but rather through the wider view of our responsibility as human beings. Why did the concentration camps happen? Not because of Hitler, he was just one man after all. But because a wider group bought into the ego idea of power and the ‘everyone else’ syndrome. By that I mean human beings often justify things through a ‘sheeple’ principle of everybody else thinks it’s ok so it must be. But is it? Ignorance of the law is no defense and the greatest evil is done when good people do nothing. So if one soldier says no I won’t do this, and he is killed for that, it makes it much tougher for the next soldier to say no. But that is exactly what we all must do. Is that easy? No. Breaking the conformity funnel is one of the hardest asks for a human being. Our desire to stay safe and be part of the group is very strong. So to look at our darkest actions in history we have to ask ourselves am I willing to say no even if that no will result in injury or death to myself? Can I put the greater good before my personal safety? These questions are part of the ride and are part of the bugs on the windscreen and until we as a species are prepared to stand up for conscious living, whatever the consequences, then I’m afraid the concentrations camps will keep happening. got me going on this one Cathy! xx

      Thank you so much for your passion and for this beautifully expressed view. I think you’re right, the lens of accountability and responsibility rests with us as human beings. You know, I also think that as we raise our own level of awareness and consciousness, we have the opportunity to influence the collective. And a big part of that is breaking the conformity tunnel, as you so eloquently put it.

      This may not be exactly on target with what you’re saying, but one of the most freeing things I’ve ever encountered about the whole idea of Law of Attraction and how we create our own reality came from Eckhart Tolle. When he was asked about the issue of creating reality and making choices, he said (and I’m paraphrasing here) that a person is not making choices when they’re not conscious. Only through consciousness, responsibility, awareness are we truly able to make the choices that allow us to use the Law of Attraction effectively. Yes, Abraham states that whether we believe or not, it is always working, but the choice part comes through consciousness. I do think that Abraham through Esther and Jerry Hicks has made great inroads into helping us raise our consciousness and be more accountable.

      Thank you again, Justina, for your wonderful comment! It is so great to see you here. I love your writing.




  4. Thanks Cathy and I do agree with you. I just see the Law of Attraction more from the place of ‘as above so below’. Where we are at consciously is what we will create. And as FBD says true consciousness is not a complicated or lofty thing it is just heart centered living and awareness. I love the example that Byron Katie gives that collectively we are one giant schizophrenic mind and that every time one of us can release a stressful or negative thought, we release it in the whole so that in a small subtle way the collective cannot hold that negative emotion with the same intensity as before. No matter how difficult or dark it gets there is value in overcoming personal demons as every little step we take individually does impact on the whole. The little steps have value, even when we can’t see them. A smile to a random stranger, a willingness to heal a family rift, a helping hand to someone in trouble, the whole pay it forward ethos, a willingness to always check in with and dissolve our own personal judgements and prejudices – all these things seem so small but they have value, and are stepping stones to creating a collective consciousness that can attract a heart centred loving response. xx
