Use ‘The Secret’ Wisdom of the Power of Thought to Attract your Heart’s Desire

Here is what the Wikipedia synopsis of The Secret reveals,

‘The Secret, described as a self-help film, uses a documentary format to present the Law of Attraction. As described in the film, the “Law of Attraction” principle posits that feelings and thoughts can attract events, from the workings of the cosmos to interactions among individuals in their physical, emotional, and professional affairs. The film also suggests that there has been a strong tendency by those in positions of power to keep this central principle hidden from the public.’

I have to say, it can’t be that much of a secret now that every Tom, Dick and Harry knows about it.  And one also has to say that there are many other “get rich quick” books on the same subject of supposedly empowering your thoughts towards attracting everything your heart desires.

I’m trying not to be too cynical here, but some of these type of books and videos can perhaps be called money making exercises (not particular for you), as there is very little evidence to suggest that they actually work for you – and that is opposed to using good old common sense and self-knowledge (which they do not encourage) to positively negotiate life with.

However, I will remain open minded about the claims of this so-called hidden knowledge, as I do feel that the mind (if liberated and used correctly) can be a powerful tool of wisdom that can both overcome adversity, and offer us a clear path towards achieving our goals in life.

If ‘The Secret’ (shhh…it’s so secret I can’t talk about it) can somehow provide us with something useful (other than just thinking of ways to accumulate money) that we all can learn from and help improve every facet of our lives, then perhaps it’s worth a look.

A book that I also want to turn your attention to and that is featured in the post, ‘Think Your Way to a Successful Life with The Master Key System’, is the ‘The Master Key System’ written by Charles F. Haaneland – this book is very much in the same vein as ‘The Secret’.  I have only skimmed through the book (yes, I fell for the hype and purchased a copy) thus far, and it does seem to contain some self-empowering passages (in exercise form) if nothing else.

I will let you know if all the things that I truly desire in life come true by me just thinking about them…but somehow, I’m not too sure that Liverpool FC (an English football team I have supported since a lad) will ever win the Premier League, no matter how hard I direct my thoughts towards that seemingly impossible dream.

    Hi Jason,

    Thus, we can see that a simple thought is where any deed or action takes root. A thought acts as a seed. Actions hat we can be proud of and will never have to be guilty or scared of hurting anyone. In spite of all the chaos around us we should learn to take refuge and derive our solace from the fact that we are ONE with the Source and whatever life brings to us we have the capacity already to overcome.

    Persevere to cultivate good thinking and you will create a desirable reality. It is amazing to realise the mountains you can climb, the bridges you can cross and the success you can achieve when you change the way you think.

    Hi Ben,

    I quite agree with you, hence the following paragraph I wrote in this post:

    “However, I will remain open minded about the claims of this so-called hidden knowledge, as I do feel that the mind (if liberated and used correctly) can be a powerful tool of wisdom that can both overcome adversity, and offer us a clear path towards achieving our goals in life.”

    I also love the work of James Allen (As A Man Thinketh – Read my Review of the book here) which is truly inspirational and encourages us to use the power of thought to become the person we want to be.

    However, we have to keep in mind that one can think too much and end up not instigating the action that they wanted to perform in the first place.

    Thanks for your eloquent thoughts on positive thinking, my friend 🙂

    Hi again Ben,

    I’m a curious and inquisitive sort of chap, so I did me a bit of checking and found that your comment was actually from this site:

    In the future can you quote the source of any relevant sayings or information, as I initially thought you produced that inspirational bit of wisdom…to be honest, it sounds a bit like James Allen to me, but thanks for sharing it just the same.
