Thinking successfully isn’t just a case of sitting on your toilet or whatever epiphany chamber you use and straining your mind to see yourself as successful. The Secret promised this and more, but if we are all honest with ourselves this would take a lot of effort to achieve. I’m not saying it wouldn’t work, but as I said requires quite a substantial effort as The Secret relies heavily on faith. There is no question that thoughts or ideas do have substance or can affect matter. On September the 11th 2001 the world watch as thousands of people were slain by an unforgivable act of violence, the interesting thing is that at the moment the second plane entered the second tower random number generators around the world stopped giving out random numbers. The collective feeling of grief actually affected the world in a physical way.
The Secret as a theory is fine but when combined with science becomes a king maker. What science can you combine with The Secret though? Well that’s easy if you think about it, the book utilises the human mind and its potential, so the most obvious science would be psychology. The study of the brain or mind has been the hot topic since Freud came up with his mother theory. How we view our own minds is important though and does take us back to The Secret. If you view your mind as an organ of restriction then we fail, whereas if we view it as what it truly is an organ of infinite possibilities then we are well on the road to understanding the mysteries of life.
If you have trouble grasping the idea of own mind being filled with infinite possibilities, as I did, try to remember that your mind or brain only ever uses about 50% at any one time and people like Einstein used about 60%. Does that change your perspective slightly? So imagine if someone gave the tools to unlock some more of your brain’s power. What could you do with that power, remember the phrase, ‘In the kingdom of the blind the one eyed man is king’. By unlocking more your brains potential you can be the one eyed man. If you still don’t believe me, try writing something. Go away and think for 30 minutes about a subject, let you mind wander and then pick something out and focus on it. Once you have done that get a pen and a piece of paper or a computer and write a 400 word article informing people about your chosen topic.
