Within the last 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 participate in a specialist panel discussion on The Secret and regulations of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I notice it, The Secret provides a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The very first message is that our thoughts have a robust influence on our life. The next insight is that we are eligible to a wealthy life, although true wealth is a lot more than cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in all areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we must do is look within to discover 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 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 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 who are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation. The problem with this picture is that the desire to have often originates from a sense of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And due to this, whatever we gain hoping of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a gap internally.
The truth is that we aren’t 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 we can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance to be an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, encuentro virtual con david hoffmeister we shall attract to ourselves the perfect outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will likely then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will aid the higher 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.
