What is the secret? How do you change your life? God will save me - The universe will provide – I’ll visualize and attract good things Into my life - myths or not?
Since the movie “The Secret” came out, I see more and more people waiting around for their life to change. Oh no, that’s not a bad thing at all! Change is good, the waiting around isn’t. I’m talking about people who think, if you simply put your wish out into the Universe (or your choice of Deity or God) and patiently wait, your wish will come true. They actually believe that only visualizing will attract good things into their lives, that the Universe will provide and God will save them.
Two things are extremely important . It is absolutely crucial to understand that all that wishing, visualizing and attracting must be accompanied by hard work. Not only hard work, but well-thought-out, planned and pertinent/relevant hard work must go into whatever you are wishing for.
It is also critical to “see” in other words be aware of what is happening in your world - what are the things that could be a clear “sign” that the Universe or God is trying to help you. The Universe/God does work in mysterious ways – the Universe/God sends you help through other creatures in this world. So as a conscious and aware human being, it is your job to be able to recognize those “signs.”
This funny little story will highlight exactly what I’m saying: (Continue reading after the break.)
There was an old man sitting on his porch watching the rain fall. Pretty soon the water was coming over the porch and into the house.
The old man was still sitting there when a rescue boat came and the people on board said, "You can't stay here you have to come with us."
The old man replied, "No, God will save me." So the boat left. A little while later the water was up to the second floor, and another rescue boat came, and again told the old man he had to come with them.
The old man again replied, "God will save me." So the boat left him again.
An hour later the water was up to the roof and a third rescue boat approached the old man, and tried to get him to come with them.
Again the old man refused to leave stating that, "God will save me." So the boat left him again.
Soon after, the man drowned and ended up in heaven. When he saw God he asked Him, "Why didn't you save me?"
God replied, "But my child, I tried. I sent three boats after you!"
You can think of it this way: You are driving down the freeway with your eyes closed. Even though there are clear signs that tell you to take a detour or slow down, if you are not paying attention you’ll miss the signs and end up where you do not want to be. If you are not paying attention to your surroundings you will miss key opportunities and/or warnings. Eventually it is up to you to work towards whatever you are wishing for and it is also up to you to be able to recognize and accept “the help” that is being sent your way.
The movie “The Secret” was sensationalized. The basic truth of “The Secret” is if you want to change your life you simply have to become a conscious and aware human being. You do want to wish and visualize and think of attracting what you want, because that is the first step to becoming conscious and aware of what you want. And because you are conscious of what you want you start to notice opportunities that are pertinent or relevant to your wish. You must also set goals, draw up clear plans and execute your strategies and tactics to make that wish come true. Then you will change your life. That is how God will save you, the Universe will provide and visualizing will attract good things into your life – and that is indeed the secret.
