I am seriously unimpressed by The Secret and it’s accompanying kerfuffle. It’s just regurgitated, for-the-masses crap. It’s the McDonald’s drive through of spirituality.
There is enough greed in the world – we don’t need more ‘stuff’. The way they use the example of wanting to manifest that sportscar is pathetic. There are people starving needlessly and dying of preventable diseases every day. Our western culture of ‘give me more’ has created a divided society of haves and have-nots.
The ‘have-nots’ work in factories and sweatshops to make the products that you can buy more of, if only you apply the pinciples of The Secret.
The only secret I can see here is that they are a bunch of greedy individuals out to make a quick buck.
Don’t tell anyone because it’s a secret!
I really believe our thoughts are powerful and they help to shape the experiences we have every day. I bet you know someone who has the worst luck – it’s not just a bad day, it’s a bad life! And I bet they can’t wait to tell everyone about it.
Negative people attract negative events. It’s like the Universe wants to prove them right, or that like really does attract like.
I’m careful to express things in the positive, to talk about what I want, not what I DON’T want. Life seems to work better that way.
