In the last year, many folks have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the popular book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to be involved in a specialist panel discussion on The Secret and regulations of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I notice it, The Secret provides a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The next insight is that people are eligible to a rich life, although true wealth is a lot more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in most regions of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to find if, in reality, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one that I think to be true, is that when we’ve a heartfelt desire and we say yes to doing our part to manifest the desire, synchronicities arise, and dormant forces come alive.
On the flip side, Personally i think the idea that more “toys” in the shape of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats could make us happy and will be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for several folks who are already “bankrupt” in the regions of self-love and self-appreciation ucdm videos. The situation with this particular picture is that the desire to have often arises from a feeling of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And because of this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The reality is that people are not empty, but already full, and when we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then your outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to their education that people can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance as being an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we shall attract to ourselves ideal outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will serve the greater good of both our life and of those around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for our happiness.
So, if you intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
