Law Of Attraction: MC Hammer Knows The Secret

I was listening to MC Hammer the other day…

Yes, I listen to MC Hammer! He’s one of the few rappers I can stomach these days, cause he doesn’t talk about killing.

The song “It’s All Good” came on and I was reminiscing about the late 80s/90s, how people were walking around saying, “it’s all good”.

Which is huge…I mean think about the positive energy floating around everyone saying “It’s All Good!”

It made me think about a story I read about an African King:

The story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) and remarking,

“This is good!”

One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition.

The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation the friend remarked as usual,

“This is good!” To which the king replied, “No, this is NOT good!” and proceeded to send his friend to jail.

About a year later, the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took them to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone that was less than whole. So they untied the king, they sent him on his way.

As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for his treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. “You were right,” he said, “it was good that my thumb was blown off.” And he proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. “And so I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was bad for me to do this.” “No,” his friend replied, “This is good!” “What do you mean,
“This is good?”
“How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?”

“If I had NOT been in jail, I would have been with you.”

WOW. This is huge!!!

But it goes to show, that situations may not always seem pleasant while we are in them, but the Universe is always – ALWAYS working behind the scenes (and in front) for the greater good of everyone.

So remember…no matter what’s going on around you… it’s all good. There may be a lesson to learn, there may be some growing you need to do… but it IS all good.

    I love the “This is Good Story” about the King and his friend. I have told it several times already with great impact. I would love to have a reference on that. Do you remember where you found it? I would like to get a copy of that book.

    As much as I have seen this same kind of advice over and over again I was probably drawn to your post because I needed to see it again!

    I am working so hard at creating the kind of life that I want but those negative thoughts just keep getting in the way!

    Is it truly a fact of truth that the more in harmony you are with your desire, the sooner it will come to you?
