A derivation of Murphy's Original Law says this: If anything can go wrong, it will.
You can read all about the origin of Murphy's Law here. It is very interesting reading, and funny, too.
But I got to thinking about Murphy's Law, and suddenly something went "click" in my mind/ The LOA says that what you expect, you will get, right? So if you believe in Murphy's Law, even at a subconscious level, then what you will get is an inverse of the LOA, which is negative results.
I got to wondering just how many of us use Murphy's Law in our everyday life, without thinking about what we really are projecting out to the Universe.
When I talked about the Mind of God, I saw that every thought, no matter how fleeting or insignificant it may seem, streaks out into the Mind of God. You can read my original post about The Mind of God at http://www.inwardquest.com/questions/12593/i-saw-the-mind-of-god-tell-me-what-you-think.
So in order for things in your life to go well, you really have to discipline your thinking. And if you are a fan of Murphy's Law, then you are actually using the LOA in reverse!
I just thought that it is interesting that probably more people fervently believe in Murphy's Law than in the LOA- most probably do not even know about the Law of Attraction.
But if Murphy's Law seems so powerful, then why can't the reverse be true? If we try to believe that if "Everything tends to go right", it should, because of the LOA.
It is interesting that the negative, Murphy's Law, seems to be proof of the LOA- and that somebody, somewhere, should have noticed that its reverse also holds true!
[Of course somebody noticed- that's why we have the LOA in the first place!]
Isn't it interesting to ponder? Why is the negative easier to expect than the positive?
Merry Christmas, Everyone! 2013
Ring Christmas Bells,
If this is one's belief ~ then this will be what they attract or manifest into their reality.
Murphy's Law is a Belief. The LOA is working all the time whether you believe it or NOT.
The LOA is working all the time even if you've never heard of it.
The LOA is working all the time whether you're aware or conscious of it.
I agree, I think Murphy's Law is a great example of LOA in action. I don't agree with the rest of what you said. LOA was not invented to counteract Murphy's Law.
The LOA has always been & has existed long before Mr Murphy was ever born. LOA is NOT anything new & certainly NOT anything created by man.
LOA is NOT a belief or a religion; it simply is.....
It's NOT & I don't think most people believe this either. I think it's much, much harder to expect negative events. It takes more work or energy to think/expect/be/do/vibrate negatively because this state of being goes against our natural state of being which is to be happy ...
Happiness is a state of being as is love or abundance. If you expect negative events then you are vibrating in the state of lack (fear).
As the late, great Bill Hicks said ~
It's simply a choice between fear and love. Simple as that..
Again, I disagree. It's possible more people have heard of Murphy's Law as compared to LOA; but I think most people laugh & speak with a light-heart when they talk about Murphy's Law.
I think people who fervently believe in Murphy's Law simply can't take responsibility for their own negative manifestations or creations. It's easier to make an excuse or put the blame on someone or something else. Some blame God ~ some believe they are being tested spiritually & some believe in Murphy's Law.
It seems like people who believe & take Murphy's Law seriously are focused on the negative & do not appreciate or notice all the positive things which happened that day ~ sort of like people who can't see the sun for clouds. I think they are stuck in some type of negative feedback loop..
Murphy's Law is ONLY a Belief & a Belief can be Changed. It's Simply a Choice.
Yes, I agree @Jai . It's always better to expect the best (positive)...
Merry Christmas to you & Wade.
Murphy's law is based on what is considered as being right and correct from a scientific point of view of the physical world, When sooner or later flaws appear, the scientific conclusion is that the universe is imperfect, it's perceived as deviating from what is judged as correct, ,,, anyone who's aware of the law of attraction knows that the physical and non physical worlds are intimately linked and inseparable, they're interactive and interdependent,
The law of attraction is polarized energy and goes with the flow of life, When you base your point of view of the world from a purely scientific angle, the reflective spiritual part is concealed and so the faithful law of attraction kicks you in that fleshy part of your body that you usually sit on, by exposing flaws a clear indication that you're going against the natural flow of energy

if there is a law of attraction there is also a law of repulsion. in a balance system you always have a balance between 2 opposite. left and right, up down, inside, outside, male and female, positive and negative,
one should seek balance and understand the truth and how one reflect and relate to the other.
as for law we make the law in this world. yet one should not go only by the letter of the law but first by the heart of the law.
lets face the truth of the matter law are made to help people not fall in to error and cause harm and problems. yet some law sometime are not complete for each given situation and become obstacle. to do what is right. if a law is incomplete it cannot serve properly what is was mean to do then it needs to be corrected and be completed, the fact is that no one can retain to much information by memory alone. and a law that is created for a simple things can become very big in size overtime because it grows in complexity to its additional related things that it interact with, look at a book of law and you will see that it is made like a tree it as many other related law made over time it will say reference to law number a-1234
letter of the law: truth, knowledge, wisdom.
heart of the law: justice, mercy, good faith.
symbol of lady justice: sword, blindfold, balance.
as for the law of attraction and repulsion you could look at how a magnet work. law of polarity. in magnetic field.
as for murphy law it can apply to some stuff and sometime not to other stuff. like any law it as flaw.
nice it rimes: law and flaw = so a law to does not apply is false. it is flaw. f stand for false.
flaw n 1. an imperfection, defect, or blemish
vb to make or become blemished, defective, or imperfect
any way if there is a lesson for all this is that one should not stop seeking until he find. and when one does not know something he should seek to find it. then he would not be flaw. imperfect or in error. no one is perfect in this world any way so: love the neighbor as your self. and even if they would be perfect love them as your self also.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
also merry Christmas to all of you.
