The Secret
The Secret

The book expands on this. There are many wrong ways to approach "The Secret" and some people are masters of getting it wrong, until they fully understand how simple and effortless it really is.

 

The "Secret" is all about the Law of Attraction. I know it works. I've used it all my life. In fact, we all use it, whether or not we're conscious of it.

Two thousand years ago, Yehoshua of Nazareth told us that we could do the things he did and even greater. All we needed was the faith to do them. "Faith" here doesn't mean belief in an ideology or dogma. "Faith" means unshakeable and fearless certainty.

Most people have unshakeable certainty in physical reality. Therefore, they usually get more of the same. But once you "get it," you realize that everything that happens to you is because you have "attracted" it into your life. In a very real sense, you have created it.

I discovered the "secret" in 1973. I had already led a very spiritual life. I had been born with a spiritual bent—believing in God, dreaming of ontological concerns of faith, doubt and self.

I had already, two years before I discovered the "secret," experienced being outside of my physical body, seeing the world around me in vivid detail and color without the use of physical eyes. I knew that there was much more to existence than this physical reality. Most out-of-body experiences of note seem to occur because of trauma, drugs or surgery (which is a combination of physical trauma and drugs). But my own experience did not include any of these elements. It was as a result of spiritual counseling.

In 1973, I had been studying the spiritual precepts of Scientology. Despite all the controversy, Scientology had been a very real religion with religious practices for increasing one's spiritual awareness and power. Perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of Scientology was that it tended to feed the ego, which was counterproductive, but that's a different topic entirely.

What I had learned in the texts of Scientology were two charts which related awareness on its many levels with the various levels of emotional energy. The emotional tone scale covered things like "apathy," "grief" and "sympathy" all the way up to "exhilaration," "postulates" and "serenity of beingness." The know-to-mystery scale covered various levels of awareness from things like "mystery," "obliviousness" all the way up to "know about," "not know" and "know." What had puzzled me for several years was the equivalence of "not know" with "postulates." In the Scientology vernacular, a postulate is essentially a creation—telekinesis, teleportation or some other form of creation (apparent magic). In Scientology, one could "postulate" something happening and have it happen. What puzzled me about the relating of the two charts was the idea that such power would be associated with "not know."

First of all, "not know" is a peculiar entity that requires some explanation. It took me awhile to understand what it meant, but quite simply it means the opposite of knowingness. In computer lingo, "not" is an operator that returns the logical opposite of the thing it modifies. Take "know"—the ability to know something in its entirety, and "not" it. Here, I'm using "not" as a verb—to actively produce the opposite of the thing modified. Therefore, "not know" is the active unknowing or turning away from knowing something or everything.

To me, that sounded pretty oblivious. How could the power of creation and manifestation in "postulating" be equated to such obliviousness?

Then, one day in 1973, I had my big breakthrough. Suddenly, I saw what the connection was. I saw the mechanics of creation. Over thirty years later, I realized that those mechanics had, all along, been woven into Genesis, the Bible's first book.

Immediately, on that day in 1973, I tested my breakthrough. I first got the picture of the desired end result and then did something else so that my soul could "rest" from its creation. The "not know" part is merely the taking of one's awareness off of the object of creation. This is comparable to God's "day of rest"—all 13.7 billion years of it. The result was instantaneous. What I had asked for was rather minor—the turning on of a finicky fluorescent light bulb. The instantaneity of the event with my "letting go" (not know) of the creation was what proved the efficacy of the process.

Four years later, I found occasion to use this "Law of Attraction" on a far larger and far more public scale. I describe this event in my "Anatomy of a Miracle."

How is It Possible?

How is it possible for us to create anything we want in our own lives? The "Secret" movement describes everything as consisting of "energy." Because our physical bodies are made of energy, we are connected to the rest of the universe with energy. While there is a great deal of truth in this notion, it misses a far greater truth—a spiritual one.

Spirit is not energy.

Spirit is the source of all creation, including not only energy, but the space and time that envelope it.

In the Bible's first book, Genesis 1:26 tells us that God created us in His image and likeness. The bit in the Ten Commandments about not having graven images helps us understand the meaning here. God is not Homo sapiens. He has no form, thus a graven image would be a lie.

So, what does that make us? We are spiritual, non-physical and immortal (timeless) sources of creation. Essentially, this makes us baby gods. But there's a problem with this statement. The "us" in that statement needs clarification. The part of us that was created in God's image and likeness is the non-physical part—the soul, the "true self," the Holy Ghost, within. This is the better part of us. This is the part that remains invulnerable, but sadly catatonic in most individuals.

When we say that we are baby gods, there is a part of us that latches onto that and feels satisfied and gratified by such knowledge. This is the ego self—that false self that likes to take credit for things in our lives. This is the false self that insists on being right and frequently desires to make others wrong when there is disagreement. This is the vulnerable self that suffers when found to be lacking or incompetent.

So, we're not talking about the ego self being a baby god. That truly would be blasphemy. What I came to realize after nearly forty years of study was that the true self (the child of God within) wakens when touched by faith and humility. And humility is a key ingredient. I realized that you can be selfish (filled with ego) and use "The Secret," but then you would be traveling down to the "Dark Side." What that means is merely that one continues to rely on physical limitations and physical processes. Some of the richest people on the planet are using "The Secret" with this imperfect viewpoint.

Suddenly, I'm reminded of the mystical priests of Egypt who had turned their staffs into snakes before Aaron and Moses. They knew of "The Secret," but only in its incomplete "physical-based" form. Aaron threw down his staff and it turned into a snake which swallowed the other snakes. The point of that demonstration is that spirit is superior to the physical. God, as creator of the entire universe, is superior to all of the physical objects and processes within the universe. And that should be simple and obvious.

The Rockefellers and Rothschilds

I think there are something like twelve families that control the massive majority of the planet's wealth. The Rockefellers and Rothschilds are perhaps the two most famous of these families. Some, if not all of the family members know "The Secret." Perhaps some are merely going with the inertia of their family's incredible wealth, but it's possible that the ideas of wealth creation have been handed down from generation to generation.

What makes these families particularly evil is that they use an imperfect form of "The Secret"—one based upon global scarcity and fear. They keep their attention on prosperity for themselves and for those who think like them. They support their own "fellow elite." That's understandable and natural.

But they fail because they think that prosperity is only for a limited few. They think that not everyone can be prosperous. They think that the resources of planet Earth are limited. So, their policies are based upon such limitations. To be sure, fossil fuels are limited in supply, so they concentrate all their efforts on fossil fuels. They suppress any technology that is unlimited in nature. They crave power, because they feel that if they are not in power, then they will be at the effect of someone else. To the elite psychopath, this means pure terror. But they don't focus on that terror. They bide their time and patiently enact their plans when the conditions in society are right.

They blur the lines of clarity so that the meanings of words are subtly changed. War becomes a peace-keeping action or protection of sovereignty. With such blurred lines, they can then nudge into place policies that restrict the freedoms of those who might jeopardize their plans. They know not to focus on the fear of jeopardy, because their plans would become jeopardized. That is the "Law of Attraction" at work.

But they are setting themselves up to fail, because they have attached their hopes and dreams on a physical wagon rather than a spiritual one. They have based their plans on scarcity and fear. They don't trust and cannot love. Ordinary people are merely cattle. If someone becomes extraordinary, they are recruited. If they cannot be recruited, they are marginalized or eliminated. And occasionally, those who are recruited, if they ever get out of line, they are scandalized, murdered or suicided.

The best thing we can do with their plans is simply to ignore them. Don't heed their fear mongering. Withdraw our support by not buying their corporate commodities and services. Become more aware. Use the "Law of Attraction" from "The Secret" with the idea of infinite abundance, but responsible use.

The Rockefeller and Rothschild globalization of the world will fail, because it is a corruption of natural law and the Law of Attraction. Their selfishness is the seed of their own destruction, because selfishness comes from ego, and ego is the essence of vulnerability.

Using 'The Secret'

Know, first of all, that there is infinite abundance. Those who truly know "The Secret" in its entirety can give away their fortune and create another one. They have no attachment to things or to wealth.

Imagine creating a massive fortune for yourself, becoming the world's first multi-quadrillionaire. What, you say? How can there be a quadrillionaire if there's not enough money on the planet? Simple! You create more prosperity for everyone else. For someone who thinks selfishly, this could be terrifying. For someone who loves their fellow humans, this could be perfect bliss.

Now, imagine giving away your ten quadrillion dollars! Just like that. No hesitation. You find several million people who need and deserve a helping hand and you give your fortune away to them. You also pay off the American national debt and ask that they only eliminate the private (selfish) Federal Reserve and its debt-based Ponzi scheme currency. What a rush!

Be willing to give everything away, even your physical body. They're all temporary. Why be so attached?

Acknowledge and be grateful for the existing conditions. They are your starting point. They are yours. You created them. Take 100% responsibility for them. Only then can you relinquish your badge of being a victim.

Picture clearly in your mind the end result you desire to create. Then let that mental image go. Release it with full confidence that it's done. Don't put any limitations on it or ask yourself "how." Finally, receive the gift that you asked for, and be grateful for it.

God is a source of infinite abundance. And so are His children.

Great hub on the law of attraction and what it really means. I like your definition of "faith." Also, an excellent explanation of "man being made in God's image." Voted up and shared.

1973 was the very year I was baptized. And married for the first time.

In fact, I have been married all my adult life—just not to the same woman. I am a serial-marryer. But I digress.

When I was in the aviation business, one of ur clients was John Travolta. We used to fly him from his ranch (he has a landing strip beside his house) to Clearwater to be "audited" sometimes 3 times a week and always in the middle of the night.

You wrote: "This is the ego self—that false self that likes to take credit for things in our lives. This is the false self that insists on being right and frequently desires to make others wrong when there is disagreement. "

But I only take credit where credit is due! And I make sure that when I fail, I let somebody else take credit. I never insist on being right unless I am.

I believed in the Secret briefly. I imagined myself with the gorgeous woman who worked for me. Then I found out that 127 other guys were also using the Law of Attraction to get her. But there was only one of her. There was no way 127 dreams could come true all wanting the same woman.

Hi James. Thanks for the interesting comment.

I've run into John Travolta on a number of occasions, myself. Working in Hollywood made that possible. Being a former Scientologist also made that more likely.

I was baptized in 1963. I was too young to be married, then (age 13).

As far as you only taking credit where credit is due, that's good. But the point wasn't about credit; it was about the "I." Too many confuse "I" with ego instead of the true self (soul, child of God, Holy Ghost), within.

I'm still learning. But one thing I've learned recently shows me how much more of my own experience has been ego-based. Every time you view someone else as separate, you're viewing from ego. How many times have you done this? I've lost count of my own!

Very funny on letting someone else take credit for your failures. That's exactly what ego would do.

Ego doesn't like to take responsibility, but loves to blame (even blaming self). Responsibility is a positive action; blame is entirely negative. And when ego is entirely gone, you can take 100% responsibility, making blame and victim both impossible.

But while we are in these mortal forms, I wonder if we can ever be truly "right." When we judge others or their ideas as wrong, we are in danger of following the master of this world -- ego.

Can you see without your body's eyes? That may well be an indicator of a lack of ego (humility or selflessness). Only once did I have such an experience. It occurred during Scientology spiritual counseling concerning "helping others." For a few brief moments, I had returned to God. But I lost it when I became self-conscious.

As far as using the Law of Attraction to get one specific woman, that's entirely selfish and coercive (egotistical). I've been guilty of that a few times in my life. But that's contrary to spirit.

Using the Law of Attraction to gain your own soul mate (not someone else's) is the proper way to approach it. When I learned this distinction, my soul mate contacted me! From half a planet away! And on my birthday, even though she didn't know it was my birthday! I didn't know who she was, but later that year (2007), we were married. She loves God more than me. Perhaps that's one good reason we're more in love than ever.

This is an excellent hub on a subject that is close to my heart though I have not yet written about it. The power of 'the secret' is incredible - almost too much to believe but when one engages with the practises you have touched upon with utter conviction and confidence then the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Voted up. Shared.

Thanks, Dan. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I look forward to reading your experiences with such "conviction." I'm already following, so have at it. I await your writing eagerly.

In the book the "Science of Being Rich " written in 1910 by Wallace Wattles and the catalyst for Rhonda Byrne's "The Secret", he states

“People must be taught to become rich by creation, not by competition. Everyman who becomes rich by competition throws down behind him the ladder by which he rises, and keeps others down; but every man that gets rich by creation opens a way for thousands to follow him, and inspires them to do so.” (Wattles:37)

That is how the Rothschild and Rockefeller's use the law of attraction, and I agree eventually it will be their downfall.

Great Hub.

Hi lone77star,

It's a very interesting topic the law of attraction and the things going on around us, me. You gave me a good corner to look from, see daily life as it is and the news and nwo things as it is.

Now I read your blog hub, I understand the law of attraction more.

Twice in my life I could become a millionaire, by lottery. The first time my heart went up and down as crazy it can be. That I was glad that it wasn't me, one figure difference. And the other time my children went crazy and start to spend it by loud thoughts. Which made me scary and I was happy that the price felt in the next door neighborhood. The kids not. Even if I buy stocks I make a profit, but some how I don't want to be very rich. Just enough, will do. So I also lost my millionair, yeap very in love with him - after nine months he was out of my life.

That felt very sad and broken and I kept asking what went wrong. Why did I attract him and couldn't keep him interested in me? Is it something with me not to want to be a millionair but just enough and be happy? This one time I would like to change that thought for love, can I?


lone77star profile image

lone77star 3 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi NancySophie. Wow! What a question. And a powerful story, too. Yes, you can change your thoughts and feelings.

There are many possible reasons why things happen to us, but they all come back to what we individually create.

The best possible way to master what you create is to become more aware. Along with that, practice gratitude and generosity. Practice taking your attention off of yourself and placing it on helping others.

That being said, I have to admit that I have learned a great deal about myself and have become quite a bit freer of the types of burdens you described by investigating my own past (including past lives) and the karma that comes from that past.

The Law of Attraction works by feeling. You create your own feelings, but there are things in your past that affect your decisions to create feelings. If you did something bad regarding money, then spiritually you remember. You need balance, so you focus on the bad you've done and when that bad happens to you, you need to be grateful to release the karma. Gratitude finishes the debt. That's part of taking 100% responsibility for everything that happens to you.

In another article I wrote, about a miracle I experienced, I go beyond law of attraction, into the realm of creation as a spiritual child of God:

I have been told about the *secret* from my chiropractor. I actually read one of the books. Have yet to see the movie. Is part of the secret to being happy is to send out positive thinking and visualize what it is we desire? Then make sure we do things to produce the results?

Really enjoyed reading about the *secret*. Up and shared... :-)


lone77star profile image

lone77star 2 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Thanks, Jo Goldsmith11.

The Law of Attraction (secret) is a physical universe thing, but it borders on the spiritual. Too many confuse the two to be equal. They are not. Some ignore the spiritual and hunger for the physical. That's good for limited returns.

Visualize what you want, yes. Feel that you already have it. The emphasis is on "feeling." Before I learned of "The Secret," I had used it numerous times. But I've also used something far more powerful, but similar.

Miracles start with the same ingredients, but involve spirit rather than the physical brain.

Visualization is like Genesis 1. Actualization (manifestation) is like "Day 7," God's day of rest.

More important, though, is love and generosity. If you take care of others, God will take care of you.

What a fascinating Hub and the comments too have been equally fascinating to read. I have heard the term "The Law of Attraction" and can guess to some degree what that would entail, but have to admit I have very little knowledge of most of the things that you have written about concerning the secret, from the Scientology perspective.

This Hub has given me a lot to ponder on and I have enjoyed reading this Hub and the comments that it has evoked from your readers. It looks like I have now discovered a new source of interesting reading matter.

Thanks, SGC, for your kind words. That's certainly one of my favorites.

And I've learned recently from Kabbalah (authentic, not "new age") that love is the only way to return to spirit completely... and that love is the opposite of self-concern.

I have read The Secret twice, and seen the 20 minute video on YouTube. After reading your hub, I now have a much better understanding of it. The 8 most powerful families in the world are successful because they use it, but because they do so in a corrupt manner, it will crash down on them. Thanks, also, for telling us how to deal with it, by finding our own unlimited resources and ignoring and refusing to support them.

My best friend in California is really paranoid about the Illuminati. I will tell her about this next time I speak with her.

We each have the power to move the universe, with Faith (the perfection of confidence).

The illuminati, new world order and CIA only have physical power. Wimps!

I'm currently studying the next level -- authentic Kabbalah (not the New Age, California junk). The following short video is a real spiritual eye opener:

Okay - I found the video weird and difficult to understand, but please let me know what comes of your study on Kabbalah. I understand Madonna has recently converted to it.

lone77star 2 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Thanks, Yoleen. I'm sorry to hear about the video seeming weird. I guess I was too ready for it and assumed too much. But let the seed stand planted. Sometimes, things that seem weird first time you make contact with them will eventually find other seeds helping to make sense of them. That has happened so many times in my life.

In 1977, I experienced my most profound miracle (and I've experienced dozens). The lessons of Kabbalah have helped me to understand exactly what had happened. You can read about it at,

http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Anatomy-of...

Madonna, if I understand correctly, is studying something that pretends to be Kabbalah, but is not. Kabbalah has nothing to do with the physical realm -- only the spiritual. Too much of the New Age distortion of Kabbalah talks of sex, red strings, cycles and other physical things that have nothing to do with authentic Kabbalah.

Authentic Kabbalah, according to the practitioners at Bnei Baruch, is not a religion you convert to, but spiritual science that you use like any science. Only here, you're using the discoveries of the spiritual explorers to climb the ladder toward full spirituality -- where the source of miracles, creation and forgiveness reside.

A lot of what I've found in studying Kabbalah is that intellectual understanding is not important. Feeling the opening of spirit is far more vital and interesting.
