“You cannot be a pleaser of others and a maintainer of your alignment at the same time. They don’t go together.” —Abraham
“We want so much for you to find this place where you really are so sure of who you are that anyone else’s opinion of who you are does not matter at all.” —Abraham
“We are often accused of teaching selfishness, and we agree that we do. Everything that you perceive is from the perspective of self; and if you are not selfish enough to insist on your connection or alignment with your broader, wiser Inner Being, then you have nothing to offer to others. By being selfish enough to care how you feel, you can then utilize your Guidance System to align with the powerful Energy of Source, and then anyone who is fortunate enough to be your object of attention, benefits.” —The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham
“Everyone is selfish. It is not possible to be otherwise.” —The Law of Attraction Cards
“It is important that you allow yourself to pay attention to what you want. And there are those who will call that selfishness, and they do so in a judging or disapproving way. And we say to you that unless you have a healthy view of self, unless you are allowing yourself to want, and expecting to receive that which you want, you will never be deliberate in your creating, and you will never have a very satisfying experience.” —The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham
“This is that selfish impulse that we’re trying to awaken within you. We want you to be so selfish that you’re not willing to worry. We want you to be so selfish that you’re not willing to take score and come up with a negative answer. We want you to be so selfish that you’re not willing to think a thought that is unpleasant or uncomfortable.” —Abraham
“If you are not selfish enough to deliberately align with the Energy of your Source, you have nothing to give away. Some worry that if they take too much of the pie, others will be left with nothing; while, in reality, the pie expands in proportion to the vibrational requests of all of you.” —Ask And It Is Given Cards
“You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive or sick enough to help sick people get well. You only ever uplift from your position of strength and clarity and alignment.” —Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness
“The only thing that matters is what are you doing right now in your vibration? And you can tell what you’re doing right now in your vibration by the way you feel.” —Abraham
“If we were standing in your physical shoes, that would be our dominant quest: entertaining yourself, pleasing yourself, connecting with yourself, being yourself, enjoying yourself, loving yourself.” —Abraham
“All of you would live happily ever after…if you would just mind your own business.” —Abraham
“People will love you. People will hate you. And none of it will have anything to do with you. Our encouragement is that you let your opinion of you be your top priority.” —Abraham
“Be selfish enough to follow your bliss, and you will tap in to the natural, Pure, Positive Essence of You.” —The Teachings of Abraham Well-Being Cards
“Our strongest wanting for you is that you lighten up. In other words, spend more time looking for things to laugh about and play with. Play your way through this. It really is the key. When you follow your bliss, it is always an easy journey.” —Abraham
“We are all One. When you are selfish enough to seek joy, you are adding to the joy of All That Is.” —Abraham
“Selfishly seek joy, because your joy is the greatest gift you can give to anyone. Unless you are in your joy you have nothing to give anyway.” —The Teachings of Abraham Well-Being Cards
