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 an expert panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I view it, The Secret provides a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The very first message is which our thoughts have a powerful influence on our life. The next insight is that individuals are eligible to a rich life, although true wealth is much more than cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in all aspects of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to discover if, in reality, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is 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, I feel the indisputable fact that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats will 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 spotify david hoffmeister. The problem with this particular picture is that the desire to have often arises from an atmosphere of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And due to this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The simple truth is that individuals 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 the degree that individuals can accept and be truly grateful for the inheritance to be 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 aid the greater good of both our life and of these around us, and yet we will feel no dependency upon them for the happiness.
So, if you intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
