Within the last year, many people have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the most popular book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to take part in an expert panel discussion on The Secret and what the law states 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 very first message is which our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The next insight is that we are eligible for a rich life, although true wealth is much more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every 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 which I believe to be true, is that after 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, I’m the indisputable fact that more “toys” in the shape of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats could make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for several people who are already “bankrupt” in the aspects of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this picture is that the desire to own often arises from a feeling of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And because of this a course in miracles, whatever we gain in hopes 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 a outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to the degree that we can accept and be truly grateful for the inheritance as being an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will 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 will 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.
