Wallace Wattles says in The Science of Getting Rich that you should keep your desire constantly in your mind and imagine in vivid details as if your desire has been fulfilled.

I quote:

"Spend as much of your leisure time as you can in contemplating your picture..." "See the things you want as if they were actually around you all the time; see yourself as owning and using the m. Make use of them in imagination just as you will use them when they are your tangible possessions. Dwell upon your mental picture until it is clear and distinct, and then take the Mental Attitude of Ownership toward everything in that picture..."

RHJ in the little book called 'It Works' says the same thing.

I quote:

"Think of what you want as often as possible."

Charles Haanel in The Master Key System says the same. I quote:

"You must see the picture more and more complete, see the detail, and as the details begin to unfold the ways or means of bringing it into manifestation will develop. One thing will lead to another. Thought will lead to action, action will develop methods, methods will develop friends, and friends will bring about circumstances, and, finally, the third step, or Materialization, will have been accomplished."

On the other hand, this post here at Inwardquest by Stingray (http://www.inwardquest.com/questions/2915) says that once registered, you should forget about the wish. It even says that every time you think about it, you delay its fruition.

Which of these two diametrically opposite views is correct and why?

It's not just these sources that oppose each other. I have hundreds of LOA books and they are divided into two distinct and apparently irreconcilable camps.
