I have just seen a dvd called 'The Secret' Which is a feature length program which highlights the laws of the universe and in my opinion the true way to live life. I was skeptical before watching it as it looked as though it was just going to be some kind of cheesy scam but i found it really interesting and it opened my eyes.

You can read about it or buy it at The Secret Website

I don't know how many of you have seen this but i did find a post by user seridium yesterday but i can't find it now.

If this idea was brought to us at the beginning of our lives we would be, im sure, a much more pleasant race. I already live my life in the ways highlighted on the DVD which is why i trust that it is genuine. It is a real eye opener and answers in some ways the 'ultimate question'.

Im not advertising this as i just came across it and found it interesting. I urge people to do the same, take it on board and spread the word!

50/50

Does "The Secret" actually divulge anything that could actually be considered a life changing revelation that numerous groups preceding have not already observed.

The law of attraction is nothing more than positive thought or at a real level common sense.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who would benefit from this change in perspective but it was hardly a secret.

I've only seen the 1st 20mins, and it seems to me that this is being directed toward western culture, more specifically those that are willing to close their minds to the ills of the world and concentrate more toward their own self importance.

Not sure how this would help a child being abused, a woman being raped or an innocent being bombed, you'd have to be kidding yourself to believe that you would ever have total control of the things that affect you just by understanding the laws of attraction.

As I say, I base my post on the 1st 20mins and have seen nothing life altering thus far, it just seems to be a video on how to kid yourself into believing life is better if you adpot the secret, it doesn't talk about how you may have to don blinkers to acheive such a goal.

'The secret'?

Didnt your parents ever read 'the little engine that could' to you?
You know the story.... I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
My advice? Dont waste your time watching 'the secret'.

I heard Mancow talking about 'the secret' like it was the be-all end-all.
He is as much a joke as the people turning a childrens book into a money making venture and calling it 'the secret'.

Let me repeat what I worte on the other Secret thread. This is a re-packaging of a 'system' published by Charles F. Haanel at the turn of the last century called 'The Master Key'. It was originally provided much like a correspondence course in 24 parts. The 'student' would receive the parts one at a time so they wuold concentrate on each lesson before moving to the next. I strongly suggest that anyone interested skip 'The Secret' and go back to the source: The Master Key.

Before people start saying 'engine that could' or 'power of positive thinking' I suggest they actually read The Master Key. I would also recommend that before reading The Key you get a copy of the movie 'What the Bleep Do We Know'. I know the movie can be a little odd at first but I suggest you pay particular attention to the latter part of the movie. THEN read The Key. I promise... it will prove more than worth it.

11bravo, you are entitled to your opinion and my parents never did read 'the little engine that could' to me. Infact I'd never heard of it.

The secret (although i agree it isn't really a secret as such) covers more than the laws of attraction so if you are going to criticise it, at least watch it first.

It shows the true side of what life is and how it can be controlled. A person as an individual can steer their future. I agree with that because i believe by thinking positively and knowing what i want has infact worked. It is quite complicated and i can't really explain it which is why i suggest you either watch it or don't comment.

Well, you may have got the impression that I don't want to watch it, but let me assure you that is not the case, I do not however want to purchase it as this is clearly a money spinner.

Please feel free to U2U me if you feel like loaning me your copy, if not, let me know when the whole thing is made available without cost.

I thought it was 11bravo that i quoted that from.. my bad. I can see where you are coming from Koka and that is exactly what i thought before i watched it. It turned out i actually found it very interesting and its not trying to push anything in particular, just getting people to look deeper into themselves and try and understand a bit about the spiritual side of the universe. There are some very respectable people on the program and as far as i know, the names mentioned (shakespeare, einstein, martin luther king etc) did actually follow the ideas of 'the secret'

I borrowed it myself so i can't lend it to you but for the sake of 4.95 (same price as a large big mac meal) i don't see the problem with buying it.

EDIT - I got a little confused, i meant to quote both of you...

i only watched like a 5th of it, but what i did see helped a lot. it also mentions how there was a conspiracy to hide the law of attraction from the world... if you have even a sliver of an open mind you owe it to yourself to watch this

Clearly, it is not a money spinner because whoever gets the DVD gets it for a reason. FOR EXAMPLE...

My roomate and her mother came into the room and asked me if i wanted to watch this movie called, "The Secret". I said, "What's it about?"

Well buckle my shoes and call me jackrabbit, I am so glad that I came across this DVD, as I was mean't to see it. And my life "has" changed because of it. I too urge you to watch it. But if you don't, then it is not mean't for you, for everyone has their own life paths they walk though.

I have watched the movie and read the book "The Secret".

I do think there is some useful information in both the movie and the book....none of it is new information and has been around for ages.

Even though bible which I think has a lot of errors on misinformation does have some spiritually uplifting tidbits.


Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.


That one passage in the bible sums up the so called "Secret"

I agree.

AND, if people are concidering using the techniques of the 'Secret' for matterial gain, they MIGHT be in for disappointments.

(Paraphrasing the Bible) "Seek Ye FIRST the Kingdom of the Lord, and all else will be added to you.

It really depends on the mindset of an individual.

God does not discriminate between material and spiritual gain IMO. If you attempt to manifest anything and you do it good, you'll get it IMHO.

You want a new car. Visualize yourself having it. Ingrain it in your subconsious by repetition or writing it down 100X or 20 times a day for a time period. And then forget about it when you're not actually doing the reality creation part.

Out of the blue you will get a great deal, or you will get an extra freelance job, or whatever the Universe has in store for you to get that car.

It's all an experience, and it's God wanting to experience everything through us IMHO. Material and spiritual things.

That is all true.

All I was trying to do is point out that the information in "The Secret" is nothing new and has been around for ages.

I did enjoy both the movie and the book.

It was packaged differently and was more concise and to the point than what the ancient wisdom teachings have been saying for ages.

At least reality creation is now known in the mainstream.
I think that that was one of theirs goal all along.

Not to sound like a shill


Again I agree.


I find it hartening that the movie and the book have become so popular.

I really think that people are beginning to wake up to what our true purpose and potential are in these meat suites.


And that has been their grand plan in the whole process.

God DOES discriminate between material & spiritual gain.

It was for the very reason that I had paraphrased my previous quote to prove this:

(Paraphrasing the Bible) "Seek Ye FIRST the Kingdom of the Lord, and all else will be added to you.

And another:

NIV Matthew 6 Verse 19:
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal..." "No ones can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money".

According to the 'Secret' - to which I did see the movie in it's entirety -'One has to be in 'unison/harmony' with the Universe - to strongly 'will' our desires to make ones' thoughts become reality. Positive or Negative.

It only re-caps the axiom: 'we reap what we sow/think'.

I'm not against anyone creating an 'ideal world' for themselves/others.

I only question the motives behind such individuals who 'reap/think' these 'worlds' into existance'.

It all goes down according to beliefs.

IMHO God is both the material and the spiritual. The good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. It doesn't matter. We're all here to experience life in as much variations as possible.
