I still remember the first time I watched The Secret. A friend invited me over to watch the movie. I was hesitant and really didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal. But I wanted to see it because it had become this huge social phenomenon and I wanted to see what it was all about.
By the time we started watching the movie, I was quite tipsy from the two glasses of wine I had so I wasn’t paying too much attention to the beginning. Plus my friend’s other friend was complaining about the movie the whole time so I couldn’t really hear what they were saying.
At some point, my friend and the complaining girl fell asleep. So I was up alone just watching the last 30 minutes of the movie.
I was fascinated! I almost couldn’t believe what they were saying. Simple things like vision, gratitude, and positive thinking could draw into your life whatever you desired. It really struck a chord with me. I’d heard these concepts in bits and pieces before from my parents, spiritual texts, and literary texts, but no one had put this in quite so practical terms before. They made it sound easy and doable rather than esoteric and mystical.
I was amazed. I wanted to tell everyone I knew, but I didn’t want people to think I was crazy so I curved my enthusiasm.
When I left my friend’s house, I was so high and so excited about the possibilities in my life, I wanted to cry.
Anywho, here’s the movie. Check it out for yourself.
I’m not saying this movie is perfect. There are some flaws like they focus way too much on material things and they make it sound like the law of attraction is the only law.
But this is like the cliff notes for these concepts. It’s a great introduction. If you want to know more, you’ll have to dig a little deeper.
