I am confused about LOA!

Jai Shri Guru!

Is it the Ego's need to create such things that gets us attracted to LOA?

What is the highest path - Creating things (too often through our EGO) OR to surrender and accept whatever happens by doing our duty in this world (by not being greedy for more things, money and sensual pleasures etc)???

I don't want to know whether one can 'manifest' or 'create' things by LOA or not, I just want to know what is the 'highest path' in the spiritual life!

Thank you,

Highest Path

In my understanding, the 'highest path' is detaching, breaking, taking, removing, attention away from its identification with thoughts and directing it somewhere else.

Take attention way from thoughts.
Direct attention away from thoughts and onto whatever you are doing in the moment. (i.e. Breath, walking, washing dishes, drinking water, standing in line, driving, showering, etc)

Example: When driving, just drive. Turn attention away from all the extraneous thoughts that are occurring and just put your attention on the driving.

So, when eating, just eat.
When doing zazen, just do zazen.
When sitting, just sit.

To have attention consumed by all the thoughts that are occurring while doing activities is to be engaged in extraneous mental extracurricular activities. Very tiring.

The result of directing attention away from thoughts is expressed in many ways:
-Detached (i.e. attention detached from thoughts)
-Being Present in the moment

Perhaps you may consider that attention and thoughts are one and the same. That means attention is fully consumed by and identified with thoughts, this identification with thoughts is ego. If you have not realized it already, you may one day notice that thoughts are one thing, while attention is another. They are not the same. Thoughts happen in the head. They are always occurring--if thoughts stop, more power to you. But, attention can be directed anywhere. Attention can be directed into thoughts where it usually becomes identified with them, or attention can be directed into the experience of just walking while just walking.

This is the highest path. It is a doorway into Being, into which you can go ever more deeply
