Devoted to misery

"You who are steadfastly devoted to misery must first recognize that you are miserable and not happy. The Holy Spirit cannot teach without this contrast..."
ACIM chapter 14

This explains why you can't show the way out to somebody who considers himself happy in this universe.

I can relate too that. I was and still am at times into the law of attraction. For me I had to use it to get as happy as I could in the universe..........and still realize something was missing.....that's when DU landed in my lap. Even now I wouldn't mind the illusion being a great illusion until I leave or uncover enough peace to not care LOL

Exactly my experience!

The LoA does work to some extent. Adyashanti says he uses it mainly to get good parking spaces...
