The Power of Thoughts

"All conditions and all circumstances in our lives are a result of a certain level of thinking. When you want to change the conditions and the circumstances, we have to change the level of thinking that is responsible for it." -- Albert Einstein

What amazes me most about all of the furor about "The Secret" is not the fact that people around the world are able to accept the concept of positively using the law of attraction to improve their lives but the fact that so many mental health professionals seem to want to dismiss the fact that a person can benefit by thinking positively. One therapist has even stated that he thinks the teachings of "The Secret" are dangerous because they ask a person to accept too much responsibility for what occurs in their lives. Obviously, I doubt that the individuals involved in teaching "The Secret" are suggesting that individuals are responsible for natural or manmade disasters. However, I can see how practicing the principles of "The Secret" can help an individual handle these types of events without being devastating and emotionally overwhelmed. How can that be dangerous?

The Message (MSG)

Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
