You do not have to be religious to believe in other Laws of the Universe do you? You can choose to ponder who set up these Laws of the Universe, but this is not necessary.
There are similar beliefs between religion and the Law of Attraction. The greatest similarity is prayer. You ask God for something and he or she will grant it. The Law of Attraction states when you ask the Universe for what you want, it is brought to you. The process is slightly different but the results are essentially the same...
The other similarity is the concept of belief or faith. In religious practice you acknowledge that God exists and that you must have faith. In the Law of Attraction, you believe that the Universe will provide for you. The greatest difference is that you do not have to go through an intermediary such as a priest, minister or rabbi. You can ask directly.
You do have to have faith that you will receive what you ask. It is a faith that a natural law is at work. You must believe in the process. You are the director of the process. It is not different than planting a seed in the ground. You have faith that if you provide sunshine, water and the right nutrients that a plant or flower will grow. You don’t have to be religious to believe that it will happen. It is just a biological law of nature. Seeds will grow into a plant when the right components are present. A religious person may wonder how God created such a beautiful flower and see it as proof that God exists. However, the lack of this belief will not prevent that flower from growing.
Atheists may not believe in God because there is no tangible proof. They need to be able to observe things in order to accept that they exist. They believe there is a Sun and Moon because they can see them. They may believe in gravity because they have tripped and fallen as a child.
Here is a secret revealed - there is proof of the Law of Attraction. You can record it by getting a notebook and paper. As you go through your day, write down when you see progress toward your goal. No matter how small the progress is, write it down. It becomes your written proof of the existence of the Law of Attraction. When you achieve your goal, you can look back through your notebook. You will be able to see that Law of Attraction at work and how it brought you and your desire together. It will be all the proof you should need. It will increase your belief in the process and your future goals will come to you even quicker and easier.
The Law of Attraction does not require that you sign up for any organization. It does not require that you join a church or believe in a certain deity. It does not include a concept of sin or repentance. It does include within its concepts the idea of self creation and responsibility. Since you are the creator of your reality, you are totally responsible for how it turns out and what you do along the way.
The idea of sin is that if you do something bad or negative, then something bad will happen to you. The Law of Attraction is similar in that negative things attract negative things, good things attract the same. The more positive your life is, the more positive things you will bring into your life.
The other thing about the Law of Attraction is that it does not require you give up anything or make sacrifices to appease it. It works regardless of who you are and what you believe. It does not judge you nor does it judge what your desires are. It will serve you what you ask for, no questions asked.
The Law of Attraction neither needs religion nor is it against religion. It works well with most world philosophies and religions and does not contain anything that would offend anyone. There are those that would say that being the creator of your own universe excludes God. Creating your own reality does not mean that you, as a physical extension of non-physical energy created the stars, the moon or mountains. It means that you create how you interface with the Universe. If you choose to be positive, then you can create a shining life filled with brightness and abundance.
