I would love to believe that everything that happens to us is just a matter of wishing, willing, and envisioning, but this goes too far. Horrible things happen to good people and, according to this book, those things are brought on by the victims. in some cases, maybe. But crimes perpetrated on the very young are not conjured in their innocent and ignorant minds. Dreadful afflictions cannot be willed away by the sufferer who may suffer further by utilizing this psuedo-treatment as their primary care. So if there is a positive message about willing your perfect reality, I'm afraid I'll have to throw it out with the bath water. I suspect it wasn't really anyway.
amazing like no words to describe this book and the info it contains. just read or listen to it please for the sake of humanity live in love
repetitive but consistent. If you look at it from a metaphysical philosophical outlook, it would make sense, else it is not one of my rereads. lots of motivation. I despised the reading style. still would listen to some parts of it again
Loved it kept me very Interested, will be using this again to get back on track, 1st time I did it, it changed my life. I've fallen off track and I am refocused like a laser beam... Thank you for this...

To me the key takeaway to "The Secret" is the true power of positive thinking. It does an excellent job of reinforcing this and other very wise teachings of faith and gratitude for what you already have in your life. I do agree that if you believe in a higher power, that you should ask it for the the things that will make you happy, but they have to be things that truly benefit you and serve your higher purpose in life. You may think fame and fortune will make you happy, but why would a higher power do that when that is something that can and does for many bring about their destruction. This the only aspect that I don't agree with the book on, is the deep desire and ask to receive material wealth.
