Within the last year, many folks have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the popular book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to be involved 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 see it, The Secret offers a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is which our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. Another insight is that people are eligible for a wealthy life, although true wealth is significantly more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in most areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we have to do is look within to find if, actually, we feel worthy of authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I think to be true, is that whenever 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, Personally i think the idea that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats could make us happy and would be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for many people that are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation um curso em milagres em portugues. The problem with this picture is that the desire to have often comes from a sense of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And as a result of this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel an emptiness internally.
The truth is that people are not empty, but already full, and whenever 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 as being an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves the perfect outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will serve the more good of both our life and of these around us, and yet we will feel no dependency upon them for the happiness.
So, if you intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
