The secret, in my understanding, diverges from eastern religions in that it claims a person has God powers. Basically think it, and the act of
thinking it makes it happen. Now this is not new, old Jewish text say the spoken word has some similar spiritual power.
My experience with this comes after alot of thought, and a little first hand experience. First, I believe it to be a trick of spiritual darkness. If
something does happen that you think about, it is not you, it is some force that wants you to think it is you. When that force is done with you it
will toss you out and suddenly your supposed power goes with it.
Here is my view of the intent of the secret, from the position it is a spiritual darkness that wants people to claim this power. I have heard this
dogma is like the secret, but I came upon it from a far more unusual source. I would like to expand on the path it leads to.
If it is true that reality exist for the individual, even if it is geared to learn, and the individual controls reality through thought, explain this
Two people with different ideas. Which one prevails?
You may say the strongest 'will' or belief, would prevail. Problem is this is shown inaccurate in delusional people since they can truly believe
things that never occur. It also is shown inaccurate where a person who follows this dogma has things great happen, then things go to crap.
Furthermore there would be some people with really good focus, getting there way all the time, even the most advantaged people can have changes in
fate where everything falls apart.
So what is the only possible solution for the above quotes to exist? A person believing this, would have to believe, they are the only thing in
existence. The self proclaimed, 'thought creates', leads logically to the false isolation of the claim 'the person is God', and completely alone
Note that those that believe others also have control(strongest will model) would want to stay in secrecy to keep others from believing them evil and
making their persona change(thereby making there existence a manifestation of others, and suspect as true existence). It gets complicated if people
accept strongest belief model over isolated single entity model.
The ring of power of this deception, "think and it it will happen" is to set a person on a trail that will lead to this conclusion and then break
them. This breaking is the ultimate goal of this false dogma, total loneliness and fear.
Although there is another advantage darkness gets from this dogma, if one believes they truly control all, and are the only thing in existence, then
why empathise with things only created in ones own mind, why empathise with other people? Live in selfishness, and self gratification. The self
proclaimed God hood leads to lack of caring for others, since they do not really exist. Not to mention the lack of thrill of a world without free
will. God figured this out when he created us with free will, I doubt he would give power over others to humans he did not even take.
Although I came to this premise in my own experiences, I later saw it on a twilight zone episode where a bad guy got whatever he wished, basically
hell. (somewhere I have been saved from)
