Many individuals in this community discuss various manifestation techniques, such as SATS (State Akin to Sleep), and different approaches to attract what they desire. However, I've come to a realization that the core principle behind all of these methods is simply directing one's attention towards the desired object or outcome.
When we examine the world, we discover that it is essentially a construct of the mind. The seemingly solid objects around us are, in fact, composed of mindstuff. This becomes evident when we consider that the atoms comprising everything are essentially energy and empty space. How, then, do these objects that we perceive as a concrete reality emerge from such emptiness?
The entire universe, including all its forms, arises from the mind and is contingent upon your attention. What exactly is the mind? It is the activity of awareness itself, which is essentially who you are. The mind can be understood as another term for awareness in action. From birth, you have been preprogrammed to accept certain beliefs as facts. These beliefs shape your thoughts along specific pathways, solidifying and reinforcing established notions. Consequently, your attention becomes restricted due to these preexisting conditions.
The way you think and act is determined by your established beliefs, and your attention serves to reinforce those beliefs. In turn, your attention aligns you with the objective reality that corresponds to those beliefs. Therefore, the key to achieving your goals is to direct your attention towards the reality you wish to experience. It is as simple as that. It does not depend solely on practicing SATS, scripting, or any specific technique. The true aim is to shift your attention towards your desired outcome, allowing awareness to transform and align you with this new reality.
Given that attention is influenced by conditioned beliefs, this can be challenging. Hence, people utilize techniques to stay focused on their desired goals. However, it is essential to remember that the technique itself does not bring about the manifestation; rather, it is the placement of your attention that determines the outcome. So, even if you are not adept at vividly visualizing or entering a state of SATS, or if you don't experience intense emotions regarding your goal, it is not a problem. The crucial factor is learning to exercise strong control over the direction of your attention.
