Over the past 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 what the law states of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I see it, The Secret offers a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. Another insight is that we are eligible to a wealthy life, although true wealth is much more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every regions of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we have to do is look within to discover if, actually, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one which I believe to be true, is that whenever 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 is likely to make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for several individuals who are already “bankrupt” in the regions of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this particular picture is that the desire to possess often originates from a feeling of lack rather than feeling of completeness encuentro virtual con maria del mar. And as a result of this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The fact remains that we are not empty, but already full, and whenever we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then the outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to the amount that we can accept and be truly grateful for the inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we shall attract to ourselves the perfect outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will assist the more good of both our life and of the around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for the happiness.
So, if you wish to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
