Self-fulfilling prophecy, confirmation bias, simply a different mindset, and you have no clue what would have happened if you didn’t use “the secret”.
Seen the movie, read the book, still don’t buy it. To me it seems more like “keep faith and stay optimistic”, which always improves your chances. I don’t believe in ‘changing the universe with your mind’, your mindset can change a lot, but it doesn’t make things come to you, it makes you go to the things.
To me, “the secret” felt a bit forcing too, as if the writer was saying ‘this is THE way to everything! If you don’t follow this way you are an idiot!’. Sorry, but I’m not buying miracles, to me there is no miracle cure to anything in life. If there was, numbers of miraculous cures to everything would happen all the time.
An impression that the film and book left on me, was that you should think of what you want, and not of things you don’t want. As long as you don’t think of the things you don’t want, they don’t happen. Believe me, that thought gets kicked right out of you as soon as someone in your family gives birth to a stillborn child, or when the most optimistic person you know gets cancer.
Yea, modern medicine often is crap, but ancient humans just died when they got very ill or injured, and there are people alive today who have been through lobotomy for nonsense reasons. The good old days <3
In 10 years we will have better cures for cancer, ALS and AIDS, but some different disease will get a horrible treatment, and then that will be used as an example of how bad modern medicine is, so don’t trust that and just cure yourself with your mind! Modern medicine totally has nothing to do with smallpox disappearing and polio nearly being eredicated, that is all our mind! Oh, and all doctors are evil and don’t know what they are talking about. (Yes, sarcasm)
Long story short, use your brain rather than your mind ^^ now, feel free to let the hate flow. Emperor Palpatine voice do it! Become the hate, become my minions! (The yellow ones)
hugs and kisses
