The Law of attraction – Why Some People Have All the Luck

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Intriguing. Received this article from a friend about a study done to find out why some people have all the luck. After reading it, this brings to mind some of books written about the law of attraction, books like “The Secret” have been a block buster sale because it appeals to us about attracting good fortune. The earliest publication for this article that I found was in 22/Dec/2003 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/3335275.stm) and since then many other websites and blogs have republished it and commented about it.

Basically, if one is positive in his outlook there tends to be a positive aura about him and somehow like attracts like, and good fortune would soon follow him.

Some of my church members don’t like to associate a situation to good luck as that seems to represent some random chance on a roll of dice that gave you luck and would prefer to attribute the good fortune to blessing bestowed upon by God.

A Tale of Two Seas

Sitting in the Geography class in school, I remember how fascinated I was when we were being taught all about the Dead Sea. As you probably recall, the Dead Sea is really a Lake, not a sea (and as my Geog

raphy teacher pointed out, if you understood that, it would guarantee 4 marks in the term paper!)

Its so high in salt content that the human body can float easily. You can almost lie down and read a book! The salt in the Dead Sea is as high as 35% – almost 10 times the normal ocean water. And all that saltiness has meant that there is no life at all in the Dead Sea. No fish. No vegetation. No sea animals. Nothing lives in the Dead sea.

And hence the name: Dead Sea. (more…)
