The Secret

For all you people who read this blog, do you believe in The Secret? Does it really work? What do you think of it?

I’ve seen this on Oprah, and it does make sense. If you send out negative vibes, or always have a pessimistic vibe, negative things will happen and if you think optimistic thoughts and do positive things, your life will be positive. Its karma: what you do will come back to you. I saw the first twenty minutes of the secret and I’m tempted to buy the book and/or the DVD, to see if The Secret really works and maybe do an experiment with following the rules of The Secret for 30 days (because of the show 30 days, from film-maker Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me)  It’ll be featured on my other blog: A.N.E.W., I’ll blog about it every three days, starting later during the week. Be sure to check it out and give me your thoughts about The Secret



1. John Curtis - February 24, 2008

The Secret is the latest and by far the worst example of a HIGHLY profitable trend where self-help gurus with fabricated new age titles and little relevant education, credentials or legitimate expertise brainwash us into believing that they know what is best for us, our marriages and our families.

Often their only contribution to society is introducing some exotic sounding, new age philosophy. However, they often cleverly form an incestuous group of like-minded “experts” who cross-promote each other by swearing their success is due to following the beliefs of another member of their “cult!” All the while, they ply the airwaves jockeying for an ever-larger audience by appearing in the national media to garner third-party endorsements.

The Self-Help Movement has become the Self-Destruct Movement by diminishing or destroying our critical thinking skills to choose and evolve on our own. We have given up the freedom to build healthy lives, marriages and families based on our unique history and life experience. Instead many victims, blinded to the value of their own life experiences, are attracted to the latest secret in self-help, in an attempt to find out what they should think, feel and how they should act… this is the definition of a cult.

The solution is a return to our (common) senses! The best way out of this learned “self-helplessness” is to go cold turkey. Stop following ALL self-help gurus now. Begin, instead, to reclaim your natural, God-given ability to think for yourself. The common sense that was once readily available to all of us is still there free of charge and waiting to be applied to just about any challenge we might face in life… all you have to do is use it.

Please, let’s all work together to stop the flock of “sheepeople” who blindly move from one UNPROVEN concept to the next, looking for the answers to life’s challenges that you already possess and that is the OBVIOUS!

I look forward to heading over to ANEW to track your experiene with “The Secret.” My husband thinks it’s a bunch of crap, but really you get what you put out. I saw the DVD and read the book. I agreed with some things and others I didn’t. I forgot you had this blog too! I need to add it to my blogroll! 🙂
