Re: [newtech-1] "The Secret"

Interesting feedback all around.

I recently saw Wayne Dyer speak and he commented on why he declined to be interviewed for "The Secret". He said that the movie failed to recognize an important element of our spiritual reality. The Secret of life isn't about aligning our vibrations to attract what we perceive consciously to be what we "need", especially things like cars and homes and other spiritually and emotionally void objects. The Secret to life is in aligning our entire being with our "Truth",  our purpose here on earth. And to discover Truth, people need to be focused on understanding how they can best serve the Universe. Not the "Universe" in the personal old man with a beard god in heaven who has a strict plan for us, but the universe of all living beings that surrounds us in relation to each other. How do we serve this collective consciousness that we are a part of and a product of and a co-creator of?

I like what Dr. Wayne has to say here. If we are aligned with our deepest, unconscious truth, we can only be happy, no matter what level of material abundance comes to us. I recently took up a meditation in which I ask for guidance on how I can be of service each day. I find that I "attract" opportunities to help others that teach me immense lessons about my deeper feelings, skills and purpose.

This path is nothing new. The Secret is born out of Western metaphysics which took thousands of years to come to a surface understanding of what indigenous people's and the great asian sages have been teaching for a long time. But, the Secret is good for many of the reasons stated in this thread. It creates a general awareness, in simple terms, of the basic principle that we truly do create our own realities and this is a vibrational universe.

If you want to hear an interesting perspective of the Secret, watch Abraham/Esther Hicks talk about why their/her segment was edited out of the movie:

Abraham is a non-physical entity of source energy that is interpreted by Esther Hicks. If you want to understand Abraham:

I had an opportunity to speak with Abraham and there is no experience I have had to equal it.

If you want to take a step deeper...

The predecessor to the Secret = "What The Bleep Do We Know"

Then step further to the real meat:
