Update on the Secret DVD. My sister bought it, but I'm not sure I want to view it now. From what I've heard there are a few more flaws than the book. And they're BIG ones. In a post I wrote a few weeks ago, I voiced my initial concerns about both the book and the DVD.
Basically, I feel that you don't attract EVERYTHING good or bad into your life. I feel that they have sensationalized a lot regarding it being a "secret" in the first place in order to gain publicity and therefore increase sales. And most importantly I am always wary of any person, no matter how enlightened they are, proclaiming knowledge to "absolute" truth. We each have our own version of truth, and even the best historians have their own (personal) history creating a certain level of bias.
But having spoken with several people who have seen it, and having watched quite a few shows other than Oprah (who was a huge fan and likely allowed them to soar in sales) I felt I needed to post some more concerns. Apparently, the DVD focuses a LOT on gaining material bliss. Also it makes extreme claims of self healing that are disturbing. So if you view, do so with caution. I don't think every person can heal themselves or make every monetary dream come true. Those achievements and disappointments are an important part of life lessons for us all. The universe does still exert a certain amount of randomness and chaos even to the best people.
The book may have the same focus, but perhaps because MY focus is not there I haven't noticed it as much. When I read I'm editing based on my own philosophies and experiences where as in a movie there's a lot more power to the presenter (in my opinion.)
All that being said, I still have to tell ya. Either I am highly intuitive to certain events in my life before they occur, or I can attract SOME awesome things my way. Either way, I still think that positive energy begets more of the same. At least that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
