Andy I really don’t know about you! I’m 45 yrs old and not hardly ever a skeptic of almost anything or anyone, but you however I’m skeptic about. Why because James Ray is the producer of the movie about the Secret and it seems more to me that your simply making prophets off of his patton and raw work.??? Talk straight to me if you even attempt to e-mail me in the near future. OK? I AM AN OLD, OLD SOUL, so don’t bother to comunnicate with me unless you truely search your own heart and soul and deside to be straight with me. P.S. As an old soul, I’m willing to alway’s stand corrected if I am in thye wrong, or have jumped to a wrong conclusion. Nespa???
I took about 3.2 seconds to search my heart and soul and decided to blog this. You’re not a very old soul for being only 45. Unless we’re including past lives.
I don’t have a ton of time to write things that I don’t believe in. To assume that because I disagree with you that I’m lying is a bit short-sighted.
I actually have yet to profit from my examination of The Secret movie, the 30-day challenge I did or any investigation into the roots of The Law of Attraction as a late 19th-century Christian movement that has been packaged in an Orientalist motif to middle-class Westerners.
Do I think the sentiments in the movie promote narcissism and materialism? Yes.
Do I think people use The Law of Attraction as a way to ennoble their own laziness? Yes. Might they use it for positive change? Of course.
Do I think the movie and book and associated content were extremely well-produced, executed and a great case study in marketing wellness/self-help? Yes.
Do I think the movie is inconsistent and contradicts itself in several places? Yes.
Do I doubt the power of the human mind to heal the body and spirit? Not at all.
Do I think the ‘law of attraction’ works? Not in the sense the movie portrays. I think to say that it works every time, anywhere for anyone is essentially the ‘sometimes God says no’ of Christianity. It doesn’t work all the time. So it isn’t a law. Yes, expand your mind and spirit at the possibilities around us but maybe we’re not all meant to feel fulfilled in all ways all the time.
