In the last 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 professional panel discussion on The Secret and what the law states of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I notice it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is that our thoughts have a strong influence on our life. Another insight is that we are eligible to a wealthy life, although true wealth is significantly more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to find if, in reality, we feel worthy of authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and 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’m the proven fact that more “toys” in the shape of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats will make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for all people that are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation. The situation with this particular picture is that the desire to possess often arises from a feeling of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And due to this, metaphysics of a course in miracles whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The truth is that we are not empty, but already full, and when we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then the outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to their education that we can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we shall attract to ourselves an ideal outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. 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 the around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for our happiness.
So, if you intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
