By Joshua Clayton

To attract, we must act and not react. Sure, like a foot traveler, we must take each individual action like a walker traveling to their destination. This need not be hard or easy, but it does need to be something important that we do. Life cannot be confined to mere theory, but must be genuinely expressed in action or it is genuinely empty in every way without matter to how “beautiful” or “interesting” all theories came up with are.

Action without thought is the ultimate unconscious instinct without direction sure, but thought without action is even worse without matter to how objective it is. Think about that fact for a moment before you go on with this article because I am going to say some comfortable and uncomfortable things about the nature of reality.

Action with thought is the key to attraction, laziness is the key to nothing but not thinking and not acting. The only reality there is or can be that really counts is conscious action, unconscious action does not count except as filler for the conscious actions we all take. Creativity in this sense is the ultimate key to attraction, anything in nature can compete to be the best, but only the original creator can create the best. This is what I really mean by action with thought makes everything work. One without the other is literal unconsciousness and nothing else.

We create consciousness, unconsciousness just exists. Sure, that is another uncomfortable fact, but that is reality. When we are conscious, genuine caring and attraction starts. If that was not real, the inventor would not be creative, the inventor would be competitive.

Competition is instinctive, like one peacock trying to create a better plume of feathers on itself instinctively than the next peacock. Creativity is purely conscious and original. If it was not, nothing would be created and everything would be competed for. Each person creates an original consciousness and there are not any exceptions to this rule which is why original consciousness is always superior to competitive instinct. So, think about this reality: Consciousness and activity attracts. Inactivity and unconsciousness does not attract, it scatters.

So, real consciousness uses instinct sometimes, but, it is not based on instinct in any way. Instinct is secondary to consciousness. We must realize this fact at all levels before we use attraction “instinctively”. The best laid plans and actions are mostly the best. While the most instinctive plans and actions that fall within the scope of the plans we make sometimes help those plans and actions work. So, I end by repeating: Instinct is secondary to consciousness.
