I have shared in this space some of my
concerns about the popularity of the movie and book, "The
Secret." My comments have not been so much about the veracity
or value of the concepts in The Secret, but about the defeat and
self-judgment people experience when they try to implement the
ideas and fail. I would like to wrap up this series with my "secret
Here is a typical review of the movie, "The
"Imagine having the power to easily manifest
whatever your heart desires. Imagine being able to magically attract
experiences that bring you joy and fulfillment. Sounds fantastic,
but what is more incredible is that you already have this power!
"For most people this power remains a secret.
Others may have noticed its influence but not yet figured out
how to use it reliably. And those who know the technique often
forget to put it into practice. No problem, the solution is here
and it's called "The Secret," an amazing new film that
elegantly reveals everything you need to know to manifest your
It is so true that each of us has the power
to manifest whatever our hearts desire-- and we do it every moment!
We magically manifest what our beliefs desire, and what our programming
has conditioned us to think we want, should have, or should do.
Everyone uses this power all the time, and if it is a secret it
is because it is used without awareness and the clarity to use
Imagine a fireman holding a big fire hose ten
feet back from the nozzle. The hose is whipping around, and he
has no ability to control where the water goes to do its job.
It is the same with people whose minds are filled with what the
Toltecs call "The Mitote" -- the sound of 1000 people
talking at the market place and nobody listening.
When that fireman moves his grip up to the nozzle,
he can direct the water exactly where he wants it, and use it
to accomplish his goal. When your mind is not whipping your attention
all over the place, you can move close to the nozzle of your intent,
and you can indeed create a new dream of love and abundance.
You are dreaming-- you are always creating magic
and manifesting with your mind. It doesn't start when you learn
The Secret. It is how things work, always. If you want to know
what you believe about life, love, money, sex, relationship, food,
work, etc, simply look at your life-- it is a manifestation and
reflection of those beliefs. YOU created the life you live and
the universe you live in. No judgment here, it is just how the
laws of the universe work.
So, the secret to The Secret is Clarity. If
you want to change your life, you must change the beliefs in your
mind. If you want your intent to be strong and manifest your dreams,
you must have the clarity of mind to keep your attention on your
goals and, of course, the willingness to take the actions required.
