In the last year, many individuals 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 participate in a specialist panel discussion on The Secret and regulations 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 that our thoughts have a powerful influence on our life. The following insight is that we are eligible for a rich life, although true wealth is a lot more than simply cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in most regions of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to discover if, actually, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one which I think to be true, is that whenever we’ve a heartfelt desire and we say yes to doing our part to manifest the desire, synchronicities arise ucem um curso em milagres, 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 could make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for all folks who are already “bankrupt” in the regions of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this specific picture is that the desire to have often comes from a feeling 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 gap internally.
The reality is that we aren’t empty, but already full, and when we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then your outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to their education that we can accept and be truly grateful for the 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 greater good of both our life and of these around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for the happiness.
So, if you wish to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
