So if you haven't read or watched the Secret yet let me just explain what all the bells and whistles are all about.
The Big Secret is all about the laws of attraction. Everything that is happening to you now, you attracted to yourself.
So you only have yourself to blame for your sorry state of affairs or if you're lucky, for your abundance that you are experiencing in life.
Through positive thought and energy you can get whatever it is you want in life. A new car, a new job, more money etc. You only have to ask the universe for what you want and when your energy's are in line with the universal powers of attraction you shall recieve.....
All very good and well. Now all my life I have actually lived by a similar theory. I do believe in positive thinking etc, but what I question about The Secret is that they have not taken into account the law of Karma.
Yes we all want to be rich and everything that comes with that, but do we as individual souls deserve it?
If what they say in The Secret is true, then everyone should be abundant in every way. Think of little children who do not sensor themselves. They think they can be anything. I mean for goodness sake they believe in the tooth fairy! So why doesn't little Johnny get to be an astronaut, or find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? There's no negative thought interfering with young minds, so surely all their dreams should come true. But why don't they?
Why don't I own a house yet? Why haven't I landed my dream job yet? Yes I know within myself that I am on the right path, but why has my journey been so much longer than other peoples?
One word, KARMA!
I have had to learn the hard way. Things don't come that easy to me. My path is filled with many other experiences along the way, good and bad. Throw a husband and a couple of kids in there too. I have to learn the lesson of rejection, learn that I wont disintegrate along the way, that I am a survivor and that I have the passion and will power to continue on my chosen path till I achieve my goal.
And maybe in some past life I sneered at the people at the bottom of the ladder and now in turn I struggle up my own ladder with a few rungs missing. Maybe I just don't deserve it, so no matter how much I visualize the perfect role in the perfect movie, or the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood, I'm just not gonna get it!
So in conclusion The Secret is a great theory but seriously flawed in my opinion.
But I suppose there is no harm in trying.I am a famous and wealthy actress, I am a famous and wealthy actress, I am a famous...
