A fabulous Course for Miracles and therefore the Subject matter for the Formula
September 13, 2020 Business
In the last year, many people have approached me asking me about my perspective, and the perspective of A Course in Miracles, on the popular book and film The Secret. I was also recently asked to take part in an expert panel discussion on The Secret and the law of attraction at the Body Soul Spirit Expo in Calgary.
As I see it, The Secret supplies a few powerful and necessary global messages worth appreciating.
The first message is which our thoughts have a powerful influence on our life. The following insight is that individuals are entitled to a wealthy life, although true wealth is significantly more than just cash and “toys.” Instead, it involves feeling fulfilled in most areas of life, including our relationships, career, and health. What we need to do is look within to find out if, in reality, we feel worth authentic wealth.
Another message that’s subtly conveyed in The Secret, and one that I think to be true, is that when we’ve a heartfelt desire and we say yes to doing our part to manifest the desire, synchronicities arise, and dormant forces come alive.
On the flip side, I feel the indisputable fact that more “toys” in the form of cars, houses, jet planes, and boats is likely to make us happy and could be the demonstration of our capacity to manifest is potentially damaging and crippling for many people who are already “bankrupt” in the areas of self-love and self-appreciation acim lesson 1. The issue with this specific picture is that the desire to own often originates from a feeling of lack rather than feeling of completeness. And due to this, whatever we gain in hopes of feeling “full,” whole, happy, or accomplished, will inevitably not work, since we feel a void internally.
The reality is that individuals are not empty, but already full, and when we understand and feel this to be our new reality, then the outer world begins to “echo” our inner awareness.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that to the degree that individuals can accept and be truly grateful for our inheritance as being an unbounded, abundant, whole, and unlimited Self, acim lesson 1 we shall attract to ourselves the perfect outward expressions of our claimed inner worth. This reclaiming of our authentic Self will then miraculously bring into manifestation any material items that will assist the greater good of both our life and of those around us, and yet we shall feel no dependency upon them for our happiness.
So, if you intend to know and live the Real Secret, find your Authentic Self, reclaim it-and your real inheritance will follow.
