Over the past 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 a specialist panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I see it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The very first message is our thoughts have a strong influence on our life. The following insight is that people are eligible for a wealthy 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 find if, in fact, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I believe to be true, is that after 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 proper execution of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats can make us happy and would be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for a lot of individuals who are already “bankrupt” in the aspects of self-love and self-appreciation. The situation with this specific picture is that the desire to own 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 void internally.
The reality is that people 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 the degree that people can accept and be truly grateful for the inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves an ideal outward expressions of our claimed inner worth david hoffmeister spotify. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will aid the more good of both our life and of those around us, and yet we will 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.
