Here’s my opinion on the secret. (And my opinion only)
The secret is a good movie, but it’s missing some crucial points about reality creation. It’s only talking about the law of attraction and you
sitting on your but and visualizing your desires, and that’s all it’s going to take for some car, relationship or other desire to just fall out of
the sky and in your lap. It doesn’t work that way. The most important part of that movie I’ve found is the gratitude part though.
The Universe works this way (remember that this is my opinion)
What you do is first decide on what you want. Let’s say you want a new car (leave any objections of materialism out of it; I’ll tell you why
later). What you do, is you try to imagine what it’s like having that car, and being in it right now. Not tomorrow, not six months from now… Right
now! As if you’ve been having it for a while already. You have to feel what it feels like to be having that car. The feeling is important about
this. That is the only way you will match the reality of having that car.
Our reality reacts on our feelings and emotions all the time. Our attention and the meaning we give to what we have our attention on will determine
how God/The Universe (or whatever) will react to it. Because when we don’t give a meaning (or a label) to something, we don’t feel anything when
we look at it. It is then pure emotionless observation. When we label something as good or bad, we generate an emotion every single time we look at
it. So when we do that, the Universe responds. Feelings and emotions is the language that The Universe understands.
The Law of attraction means that the more you put your attention on something, the more of it your going to get. Which means if you put more of your
attention on something you like, you’re going to get more of it. Getting angry at cops tasering people all the time? Do you read the stories and get
angry and start blaming the cops and whatnot for that whole situation? Well guess what, you and the millions of people reading the same stories and
getting angry are just making the situation worse. God/The Universe (which has no morals, but just strictly observe) is just looking at your anger and
sending you more situations which match your anger. So you get to read more stories about crazy cops tasering people. It’s a vicious circle.
Anyway, back to the car. If you do numerous sessions of the visualizations of having that car. Feeling how it really feels like to have that car,
seeing yourself on the road with it, seeing the people on the street react when they see you driving in that car. Drink up all that feeling and
emotion that you would have being in that car already. Having it already.
God/The Universe will begin to respond and start sending you situations in which it will be increasingly more favorable to get that car. Without
question it does this. Just as every time you sit in self pity it will give you more reason to be depressed. It has no morals because it does not
label anything, it just observes them. Yes I said God has no morals (more on that later).
Well except for one actually, or so it seems. God/The Universe loves gratitude. Loves it a lot. If you are grateful for something, it will give you
much more if it. But that’s really just what it seems like anyway, because God doesn’t put a label on anything. By causality, gratitude is one of
the highest feelings any human can achieve (well perhaps besides an orgasm : ) ). But gratitude is way up there.
So do not push against things that you don’t like, just accept them, be grateful for them and the lessons that they learn you. Simply be grateful
for everything in your life.
So when you’re imagining yourself being in that car, sitting there feeling the feelings of already having that car, be grateful to whatever God you
have that you have that car already; be grateful for having the opportunity. Doing so causes The Universe to bring that experience of having that car
to you faster. As fast as you allow it to.
This brings me to the next part. You have to allow this to happen. Don’t think that if you do all of that visualization that that’s enough. You
have to make sure that you don’t block or sabotage yourself from having this experience of this car being yours. All conflicting feelings, emotions
and belief have to be out of the way and through the door. Don’t worry on how you’re going to get the car. Because then you’re imposing your
will on the Universe which most definitely had the most ingenious plan to get this car to you if you didn’t get in the way. Don’t ever impose your
will on God/The Universe. It is a septillion times smarter than you and it knows how to get things done a septillion times better than you. Your only
job is to allow this to happen the way The Universe intends. It may give you an urge to travel somewhere where you will meet someone who will offer
you a job with a significantly higher salary that what you’re earning at your other job, so you will be able to afford the car. Or you’ll just win
the car like my aunt did yesterday. She won a brand new customized Toyota Yaris yesterday (see the pictures
My aunt is the one with in black and red with the glasses. I’ve
very grateful that she won the car.
One thing is certain. Allowing does not mean sitting on your butt all day visualizing. You have to take action to get the car. It’s not going to
come flying out of the sky. God/The Universe will give you an urge to do something (like I said above) which will eventually lead you to the car. But
buy being lazy you are not going to get that car. Trust your hunches and urges and you’ll take the right and smart action.
Let me tell you a story about God/The Universe. The reason why I’m calling God the Universe is because God is everything that exists, that will
exist and has ever existed. I have no scientific proof for this, other than my hunch that some theories such as the holographic theory and quantum
physics may be going in the right direction of describing God. God is everything, you, me, Bush, Rothschild, Rockefeller and Osama Bin Laden. So we
all are one part of the same being. With the illusion that we are apart from each other. You can compare that with the ocean. Take a cup and take some
water out of the ocean. You’ve separated that water from the ocean; you can see the water from that cup as an individual body. But the water in that
cup is still the ocean and is still part of the ocean.
Remember when I said not to impose your will on God? It means not to impose your will on other people as well. Because they are God and they are part
of God. Don’t force them to do what you want. It tells more about you than them. It shows that you’re needy, which is the total opposite of being
grateful. The Universe will see that you’re needy, which means you’re lack something that you desire. So it will give you more experiences that
are similar to that situation. Your way is never the better way for other people. Neither is their way the better way for you.
So to sum it up.
Feel what it feels like to really have that what you desire (through 5 sensory visualization). Do this often.
Make sure you consistently stay on that level where you are attracting that desire. Do not sabotage yourself.
Be grateful that you already have that which you desire. The Universe will reply much stronger when you are grateful for something.
Allow it to happen. Forget the details. Let the Universe handle them. You act only when the Universe is pushing/urging you to act. Just keep doing
what you doing, and you will feel a strong urge to do something different, but you don’t know why. The Universe brings you opportunities…. The
Universe will always surprise you and bring something to you in a very unexpected way, if you allow it to do so. But you have to act when you get that
urge; when you get that opportunity. You have to meet The Universe half way.
Furthermore, know that we all are part of the same being, and do not force others to do as you want them to do. Here comes the golden rule of “Do to
others as you would like for others to do to you”. Love them unconditionally as they are. Imposing your will on them is imposing your will on the
P.S: Another thing that God "likes" besides gratitude is for you to request your desires to happen/come to you in a way that is the best and most
wonderful way for yourself and for everyone else that is involved in the process. For example: It will avoid you suddenly getting money because a
wealthyrelative died in a horrible way or anything in that sense.
