When the secret was first introduced to the world back in 2006, I was unaware of it until 2007. I still remember that day like it was yesterday, because I ended up attracting to me my father, who I hadn’t seen in the previous six years of my life, on the bus. Within an hour after finishing the movie, I narrowly got onto a bus where my father entered just two stops later. I snugged my head between my legs and said, “nope, I’m not saying a damn thang to that fool!”
Within an hour I realized how I can attract individuals into my life. About a month later, I got into a shouting party with my brother because he unwittingly demeaned everything about the secret saying, “the universe? Ahh hell nah. That s***s too crazy for me” in dumb downed rhetoric. My friend Ty, who’s attending Harvard’s Dental School at this very moment, came between us and a war of fists.
Why am I bringing up these two situations that coincide with each other? Well, I saw someone by the name of Gary V ranting in front of a crowd about how ‘The Secret’ is bs. Now, you have to remember that criticizing others beliefs, differences, cultural backgrounds and opinions is a gateway to a fierce argument. I always tell my listeners that you can be a believer in god, allah, buddha, or anything you want – what you must do, though….is accept others opinions – regardless if you believe it to be right or wrong.
He went on to say that “being positive is the key”…but being positive is also cultivated from the mind, which has created so much of what’s around us. On top of that, the mind is energy, and energy is the universe. This is exactly what ‘The Secret’ is.
I won’t go on a long disagreement, but remember, never let people use auto-suggestion to dictate your beliefs. If I was weak, I would’ve allowed myself to believe his opinion and do away with what’s written in my essence. This is the destroyer of so many futures because we listen to other people and create our beliefs around it.
Believe in what you believe in and don’t let someone else say otherwise.
