DescriptionThe Secret Revealed Exposing the Truth about the Law of Attraction examines the claims of the No.1 New York Times Bestseller entitled The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Does the universe hold an age-old secret that has only recently been explained to humankind… by an Australian TV producer?
Can such a “Secret” really be so simple – and selfish – as to consist mostly of attracting physical objects and material possessions by wishing for them more earnestly than you ever have?
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne claims that we are, according to quantum physics, merely energy or vibrations, Thus we need to experience the correct “frequency” in order to get things from “the Universe.
Here is her formula or, better known as “the secret:” if we just “feel happy,” then we have “right thoughts” which we “emit” at the correct frequency to “the Universe” which is a “mirror” which is obligated to bounce back to us “whatever we want!” We can get new houses, new cars, even romantic friends – if we “emit” correctly. And that is The Secret!
According to Byrne, what we think and feel determines what we receive in life. Many people, among them not a few Christians, are embracing this “philosophy” to help deal with tough times in their lives.
But is The Secret real? Does it work? Is it good, for its readers or for humankind? What are the real motivations behind the commercial juggernaut of The Secret?
The Secret Revealed outlines the proper attitude toward success and wealth, and not ignoring, but coming to understand, suffering and hurting, too. The Secret Revealed will explore the meaning of love, sin, thinking and faith. It examines how to establish a proper “epicenter” to our personal universe.
One of the most helpful sections of The Secret Revealed will be the historical chart which identifies the “genealogy” of The Secret, tracing its sources: occultism’s Emerald Tablet, Hinduism and Quimby’s New Thought that emerged in the late 1800’s.
Most importantly is the journey from “the secret” to “the mystery.” And a trip to “Mars Hill” will reveal the real God
The book features a helpful index of Byrne’s book, along with many sidebars filled with relevant information to help believers guide their friends from the errors of The Secret.
