In eager anticipation of the sequel opening in the U.S. today, John decided I should watch the original Dumb and Dumber movie in order to appreciate the sequel more.
I was not pleased with this plan, as I had no intention of seeing the sequel either.
But love conquers all so we watched the original together last weekend.
Could this really dumb movie have anything to teach us about the Law of Attraction?
Turns out the answer is yes… but if you’re a person who can’t stand having the plot revealed, stop reading now.
Let’s leave out the fact that Lloyd is vibrationally in a different universe from the refined and wealthy object of his painful crush, Mary. Not going to happen, Lloyd. Universal Law.
Let’s also leave out the fact that when Lloyd and Harry suddenly discover they’re in possession of a suitcase crammed with money and begin to live it up big-time, the money doesn’t change them. They’re still inept clowns.
Most of us believe suddenly receiving a vast amount of money would miraculously transform our world. That could happen – but only if on the inside (in our thoughts, emotions and expectations) we were already a match to wealth.
Not being a true vibrational match to this fortune, Lloyd and Harry can’t hold on to it.
The prime Law of Attraction moment comes at the end of the movie. Lloyd and Harry are hitchhiking home from Aspen, completely broke. A Bud Light Girls bus pulls up, and the girls lean out the window. The models tell Harry and Lloyd they need a couple of guys to travel with him and help them get ready for shows. Or something like that.
Instead of instantly leaping into the bus, our boys point the girls toward the nearest town. “You’ll find guys there.” The bouncy models can’t believe their ears. They’re confused, crestfallen. The bus pulls away.
Lloyd and Harry look at each other. “Those lucky guys,” they say, shaking their heads.
Most people think this scene is hilarious because it shows their irredeemable stupidity. Like we need another example.
To me this scene is a reminder that a school bus full of whatever your heart desires can pull right up to your home (in fact, it’s probably parked outside right now). But if you don’t expect or feel deserving of what’s in the bus, you won’t even notice it’s there for you.
It’s safe to say Lloyd and Harry will live their entire fictitious lives unaware of the Law of Attraction. In this way, they’re no different from the majority of humans on this planet, and IQ has nothing to do with it.
You and I are amazingly fortunate to know about this supreme universal law (Abraham says LoA is the only universal law worth focusing on).
Because we’re this fortunate, we owe it to ourselves to make the inner vibrational shifts required to become a deliberate match to our desires.
We’re the ones who can do this. Billions of people on the planet have no idea it’s even possible.
When John and I get around to seeing Dumb and Dumber To, I’ll be looking for the Law of Attraction gems.
