In 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 take part in a professional panel discussion on The Secret and regulations 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 our thoughts have a strong influence on our life. The next insight is that individuals are entitled to a rich life, although true wealth is a lot more than cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in most aspects of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to find if, in reality, 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 proven fact that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats could make us happy and would be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for several people that are already “bankrupt” in the aspects of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this specific picture is that the desire to possess often comes from an atmosphere of lack rather than feeling of completeness. 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 gap internally.
The simple truth is that individuals aren’t empty, but already full, and once 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 their education that individuals can accept and be truly grateful for the inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, david hoffmeister espanol we shall attract to ourselves the right 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 more good of both our life and of those around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for the happiness.
So, if you want to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
