The Secret about "The Secret"

Aug 17, 2007
The Secret came out as a pay per download and DVD in the spring of 2006, created by an Australian TV producer named Rhonda Byrne. In it she describes how a series of personal issues brought her to a crisis point. She then discovers a book which purports to have the answers to a happy and abundant life. This leads her to investigate other material along that line, which end up stating the same principle over and over -- what you concentrate on in your life becomes your reality.

This is not a new concept for the New Age community. It is called the Law of Attraction. In the DVD, the notion is put forth that this is called The Secret because this has been kept a secret by only the wealthy and powerful so as to give them an edge. This may or may not be true, but it is still just the Law of Attraction in a different shiny package.

Getting past the drama, the examples of people successfully using these concepts is very good. There are a number of "teachers" on the DVD who give important information about how to use this concept of attracting into your life that which you focus on, giving almost a step-by-step outline as to how to proceed.

The concept may be nothing new, but the presentation is. It really helps to instill some ideas about abundance that need to be looked at. We as a society are used to seeing things as having limitation. If it is true that by readjusting our belief system that we can bring to us more of what we desire to be happy and fulfilled, then where is the harm in trying?

Those in the medical and psychiatric fields say that there is plenty that could harm. If one were to try to use The Secret to cure them of a disease instead of seeking medical help, this could be a big problem. The psychiatrists state that there could be depression if people subscribed to the notion that they caused their own troubles through their thoughts. People may start to try to use it with the lottery and gambling, as The Secret sounds like the perfect thing for a quick score.

On the flip side, if, as The Secret states, we are always re-creating our reality with our thoughts, then there would be great power in the knowing that whatever was created can be shifted, that fate is actually the way we have arranged our beliefs and shown them to ourselves in the form of such things as money, relationships and health.

Could it be that there is no real norm for existence and that even the medical people's belief's align to show them cases that prove their own belief to them over and over because that is what they are focusing on in their reality? Kind of blows your mind. If this is so, it comes back to the individual to experiment for themselves. If we see things from the vantage point of The Secret, the truth is whatever you believe it to be.

Metaphysically speaking, we can only receive when we are open to receiving, and with one more important stipulation: we have to have the sense of strong self-worth. Without that, the self attracts things that mirror the negative self-image. Goods gotten fade away or are never that great to begin with. People in the life still don't treat us right because we don't see ourselves as worthy of it. This may be very subconscious and hard to get at.

Then there is the Karmic aspect of things. Our souls come into this life with a lot of baggage as well as a soul purpose. If the purpose of our existence this time around is to learn what it is like to be poor, chances are that we will have to experience that first before we can release that and receive our abundance.

We also bring with us patterns that have been ingrained, sometimes for eons, that make us who we are today and support the learning process that we have chosen for this lifetime. Again, once the lessons are learned in this life it is time to let go of those past patterns and use the concepts of The Secret for added benefit.

The Secret is not the be-all-end-all of spiritual and inspirational teaching. It is one part of the process of self-realization and conscious connection of our souls with the energy that we are a part of; the energy of unlimited spirit; the energy of unlimited abundance; the energy underlying and interweaving all things of this Universe. That's the secret about using The Secret.
