You may not get "it" until you watch the whole movie itself!

Here may be a clue for you in a quote from Mother Theresa -
source: ...
I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.
...

Mark de LA says
   The problem with the peace movement is that most of them are anti-something: anti-war, anti-nuke, anti-Bush, anti-whatever. The minute you bring into being the context for something new you bring into being it's opposite. The distinction rat-soup brings with it all that is not rat-soup (otherwise out of the cosmic goop you would not have a distinction at all).
   Eeek!
   This distinction is ever wrapped-up in the symbol below. One has to make peace within oneself about war & transform war into something else - the notion of swords into plowshares was one such great idea. Competition transforms into cooperation. Scarcity transforms into abundance. Find your center in such an evolution & your emotions that produce war such as anger & lack will begin to have less places to go.

who likes to buy self-help media in booring packags ... now you can get it in Da Vinci Code style red ... very cleaver. 
Well, if you are interested in the other side of picture from a negative point of view there is always this article in MSNBC.  My impression of the Secret was that it was well packaged & that the inspiration provided was nicely within the style & strength of NLP experiments.  Their idea that you get good results by knowing what you want & making that real enough for you goes a long way toward better results rather than focusing on the negative.  It is also aligned fairly well with ancient ritual magick as well as modern psycho-pelic.

Are you advocating acting before thinking ?
Well of course it's more complicated than that .... but one thing that i'm quite sure of is that no action implies no attraction.
Some might hold that action without any thought in it implies spinning one's wheels. I don't see how action implies any attraction at all anymore than thinking without action implies any attraction.  Generally emotion is the trigger somewhat as the word itself implies.

Mark de LA says
If we cut to the chase here it is simply a matter of making your goals real enough for you to notice opportunities showing up in everyday life (which may always have been there) & then for you to act congruently with those opportunities to achieve your own particular success. It is not really a secret.  How you manage to juice it up is your own choice.  You might sacrifice a goat or meditate on your navel in a dark room or simple put it on your to-do list & follow through.
OTOH, there seems to be something harmful in focusing one's mental energies on negativity particularly where it relates to the World problems of this era. Turning off the media seems to ameliorate this condition - at least when I have done it!

Seth says
Action, thought, and emotion are not usually (in a healthy individual) completely separate ... like Breck says, they are in a dynamic balance.  But if you end up emoting and thinking about something, then nothing will change untill you actually do something.  This is really simple.  One of the examples given in The Secret was a woman who wanted an executive position.   I think it went down that she imagined  herself in suits and the implication was that is what did the trick (correct me on this if i got it wrong).  My point is that her imagining was fine, but really irrelevant ... nothing was changed untill she put he suit on.

Yep, that was just clever packaging.

Then again there is John XI, 22-44 to ponder about.
How does this relate to The Secret?  Or does it relate instead to 6250

This quote & many others essentially say ask in my name & ye shall have.  The "ask in my name" is the clue which IMHO means "ask within the Golden Rule". 6250, imho, is just Cameron's boondoggle trying to piggyback on the DaVinci Code phenomena; no scientific proof or others likely there.


Seth says
How do you get from "ask in my name" to "ask within the Golden Rule" ?

I totally agree that 6250 is piggy backing on the immense success of the DaVinci Code.  Me thinks that 6065 does so as well.

Well, 6065 has nothing to do with the Da Vinci Code - you will have to explain that one. OTOH, JC taught the Golden Rule. It's not a huge stretch to imagine that asking for doing in your enemies would not be within his name since he also said love your enemies.

It has to do with the DVC by virture of style, not content. 
Well then a turd and a piece of sausage have a similar connection !
Yep.  They are also connected by "means".  They both use the same means, namely secrecy, to enhance their appeal.

Mostly a compendium of people blowing it out their arses.  Not worth time to debunk.  If you are a mind-numbed robot don't read or watch The Secret you won't be able to process it. If you are otherwise then there may be something interesting to play with in it for you.  The people who wrote the stuff for The Secret are not the first nor last to write about the power of positive thinking.  They are not the first nor last to write about making yourself clear about what you want out of life. They are not the first nor last to suggest that you be congruent with what you want to happen & to take steps in that direction.  If none of that stuff interests you - MOVE ON!

Seth says
I almost hate to keep raggin on this enterprise but i ran across this check over at their official website and i think it shows the kind of mentality from which they are comming.  I'll post it here just in case sombody has need of this kind of check.

So what ?  I get faux-checks all the time from credit card agencies, loan companies & other forms of advertizing.
