In the last year, many individuals 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 participate in a professional panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I view it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The initial message is that our thoughts have a powerful influence on our life. The next insight is that individuals are entitled to a wealthy life, although true wealth is a lot more than cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we have to do is look within to find if, in reality, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and the one that I believe to be true, is that when 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 proper execution 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 who are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation. The issue with this particular picture is that the desire to own often originates from an atmosphere of lack rather than feeling of completeness. And as a result of this, whatever we gain assured of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The fact remains that individuals are not empty, but already full, and whenever 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 the amount 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 perfect outward expressions of our claimed inner worth un curso de milagros preguntas y respuestas. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will likely then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will serve the greater 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 intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
