Within the last year, many people 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 an expert panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I notice it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The initial message is that our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. Another insight is that people are entitled to a rich life, although true wealth is significantly more than simply cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in all areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to find out if, actually, we feel worthy of authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I believe to be true, is that when we have 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 indisputable fact that more “toys” in the shape of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats will make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for most people who are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation. The situation with this picture is that the desire to own often originates from a feeling of lack rather than feeling of completeness. And because of this, david hoffmeister espanol whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel an emptiness internally.
The truth is that people aren’t empty, but already full, and whenever we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then a 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 to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we shall attract to ourselves the right 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 higher good of both our life and of these 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.
