Within the last year, many folks have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the favorite book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to participate in a professional panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I view it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The very first message is which our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The following insight is that individuals are entitled to a wealthy life, although true wealth is a lot more than cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in all aspects of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to find if, actually, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one that I think 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 idea that more “toys” in the shape of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats can make us happy and will be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for a lot of people that are already “bankrupt” in the aspects of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this particular picture is that the desire to own often comes from an atmosphere of lack rather than feeling of completeness. And as a result of this, whatever we gain assured of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a gap internally.
The truth is that individuals aren’t empty, but already full, and when 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 individuals can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, spotify david hoffmeister 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 assist 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 wish to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
