Over the past year, many individuals 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 take part in a professional 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 first message is that our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The next insight is that individuals are entitled to a wealthy life, although true wealth is a lot more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every regions of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to discover if, actually, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I think to be true, is that whenever we’ve 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 idea that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats will make us happy and would be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for several individuals who are already “bankrupt” in the regions of self-love and self-appreciation. The problem with this particular picture is that the desire to have often originates from an atmosphere of lack rather than feeling of completeness. And due to this, whatever we gain assured of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a gap internally.
The reality is that individuals aren’t empty, but already full, and once 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 individuals can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves the right outward expressions of our claimed inner worth david hoffmeister spotify. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will serve the higher good of both our life and of these around us, and yet we will feel no dependency upon them for our happiness.
So, if you wish to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
