Over the past year, many people 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 take part in a professional panel discussion on The Secret and regulations 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 initial message is that our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The following insight is that we are eligible for a rich life, although true wealth is significantly more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in every aspects of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to discover if, in reality, we feel worthy of authentic wealth.
Another message that is subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one which I believe 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, I’m the idea that more “toys” in the proper execution of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats could make us happy and will be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for most individuals who are already “bankrupt” in the aspects of self-love and self-appreciation david hoffmeister spotify. The issue 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 in hopes of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel an emptiness internally.
The fact remains that we aren’t empty, but already full, and once 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 the inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves an ideal outward expression of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will serve the higher good of both our life and of the 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.
