Over the past year, many folks have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the most popular book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to take part in a professional 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 initial message is which our thoughts have a strong influence on our life. The next insight is that people are eligible to a rich life, although true wealth is a lot more than cash and “toys.” Instead um curso em milagres ucem, it involves feeling fulfilled in all regions of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to find out if, actually, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I think 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’m the indisputable fact that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats will make us happy and will 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 particular picture is that the desire to possess often originates from a feeling of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And because of this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel an emptiness internally.
The stark reality is that people are not empty, but already full, and whenever we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then a 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 our inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves an ideal outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will likely then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will assist the more good of both our life and of the around us, and yet we will feel no dependency upon them for our happiness.
So, if you want to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
