Emotion is the power which attracts. that which you fear strongly, you will experience. An animal which you consider a lower form of life (even though animals act with more integrity and greater consistency than humans) knows immediately if you are afraid of it. Plants – which you consider an even lower form of life – respond to people who love them much better than to those who couldn’t care less. None of this is by coincidence. There is no coincidence in the universe – only a grand design; an incredible “snowflake.” Emotion is energy in motion. When you move energy, you create effect. If you move enough energy long enough in a certain way you get matter.
