Self power

ACIM Lesson 253:

My Self is ruler of the universe.
It is impossible that anything should come to me unbidden by myself. Even in this world, it is I who rule my destiny. What happens is what I desire. What does not occur is what I do not want to happen. This must I accept. For thus am I led past this world to my creations, children of my will, in Heaven where my holy Self abides with them and Him Who has created me.


This would seem to tell us that all those Power-Of-Attraction philosophies are right.
Except in a crucial aspect: getting what you want will not make you happy, so long as what you want is in this world.
(Also I think that the little Self, the human, may sometimes be in conflict with the Single Self.)

… But despite this, one must learn that all one has is exactly what one wants, in order to be able to change one’s wants and go home.
