Is this what Jesus meant when he said, "I am the bread of life?"

How does the Law of Attraction relate to this story?

I guess the Law of Attraction applies in that Jesus did not see a lack of food but believed that there was an abundance to feed the multitude so that became his reality.

You've got me pondering, from your other question, on whether he may have possibly moved in time to obtain the fish and hence it seemed a miracle occurred.

I think he was so in touch with his Father or his Source that he realized anything was possible.As LeeAnn said, he was a master of his circumstances.He knew who he was and tried to show us that the same knowledge is available to all.

To me if we interpret his teachings correctly we won't hunger or thirst for the Truth because the answers are there, and I think this is what he meant when he said " I am the bread of life".

moved in time. Or possibly to a parallel reality...

First there is a Great book on-line at PsiTek `"And Jesus Taught it too" The early teachings on the Law of Attraction. Author Philip Harris.

I think that there was at least 2 lessons to be learned from the Wonder of feeding the 5000. As I think about it maybe three.

  1. Preparation "Have them to sit down".

  2. The Power of Gratitude Jesus took it and blessed (Gave thanks to the Universe for what he had. Not like to disciples (with their reckoning) "but" we only have.

  3. Thoughts are things, behind all of this it shows that Jesus is the Master of Quantity, The right frame of mind he knew That the Universe (Father) is abundantly Generous to the Child, Jesus (Us). As with the Law of Attraction you must Resonate with what you are preparing for in your thought life first in order to manifest.

Just my personal interpretation, but when he used only a few loaves of bread and a couple of fishes to feed the multitudes in this parable, I believed it was to show his mastership over circumstances and over material things.

Jesus spoke in figures of speech. Sometimes really hard to understand.

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

I believe this particular metaphor tells us about the enlightenment, obtaining God consciousness (Samadhi in Yoga). He wanted his students to live spiritually according to the guidelines he gave them, so they would eventually obtain God consciousness, become God, and therefore never be hungry.

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods’?

So by "eating his food" Jesus meant "living as he did".

To answer the second part of the question, I don't really think that LoA applies to this story.

Check out Neville Goddard. He's a Master of interpreting the meaning of religious scripture and putting it into modern English laguage.
