A Course in Miracles and the Message of the Secret

Over the past year, many people have greeted me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the popular book and film The secret. I was also recently asked to participate in an expert panel discussion on the Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.

As i find it, The secret offers a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is our thoughts have a powerful influence on our life acim. The next insight is that we are entitled to a wealthy life, although true wealth is much more than just cash and "toys. inch Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in all areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to discover if, in fact, we feel worthy of authentic wealth.

Another message that is softly offered in the Secret, and one that we believe to be true, is anytime we have a honest desire and we say yes to doing our part to manifest the desire, synchronicities arise, and dormant forces come alive.

On the bright side, I find myself the idea that more toys in the form of cars, houses, jet aircraft, and boats will make us happy and you will be the demonstration in our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for many people who are already insolvent in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation. The problem with this picture is that the desire to have often comes from a feeling of lack rather than a feeling of completeness. And because of this, whatever we gain praying of feeling "full, inch whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.

The truth is that we are not empty, but already full, and when we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then the outer world begins to "echo" our inner awareness.

An application in Miracles reminds us that to the degree that we can accept and grow truly pleased for our gift of money as being an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, we will attract to ourselves the perfect outward expressions in our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming in our authentic Self will miraculously bring into symptoms any material items that will aid the greater good of both our life and of those around us, and yet we will feel no reliance upon them for our happiness.
