Have any of you heard of “The Secret?” I began watching the DVD the other night, and well the basic premise is this notion of the Law of Attraction, that if you believe something good, or have positive thoughts your life will reap positive things. The appeal, or at least the ploy of the book/DVD is that this Secret is ancient wisdom that has been discovered, coveted, hidden and recently re-discovered. The DVD is a docu-drama of famous people from a wide spectrum of professions all advocating the “Law of Attraction.”
What do you think? Do you know anyone that is really into this stuff?
How do you feel about positive thinking and receiving positive outcomes?
One of the biggest critiques I have with the whole things is the focus on material prosperity. Why is it humanity feels that material prosperity will bring happiness into our lives? Jesus spoke about money alot and was not against us having money, but was certainly against hoarding and worshipping money. Idolatry is just as relevant today as it was in the first century.
I am not trying to emit any negative energy, I am just being honest.
