the secret

On a recent morning’s wandering I trawled through the Netflix documentary offerings and stumbled across a title so captivating I dropped my bowl full of candy and my jaw along with it.  It was called The Secret, and as I pondered the title and corresponding graphic on the television screen before me, I caught this tagline like a ten-pound trout in a mountain lake:  The Secret has traveled through centuries . . . to reach you.  

Ooohh, what could that be? I thought and immediately clicked the remote.  The 2006 Australian film promised to reveal “The Secret” that utterly transformed the lives of every person who ever knew it . . . Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein.  This secret wisdom, the film storyline told me, has been passed down throughout the ages, traveling through centuries.  It’s the secret to obtaining everything you desire– the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted.  All the resources you will ever need to understand and live “The Secret” divulged in ninety minutes right there in your own living room.  Not since I read The Da Vinci Code several years ago had I been handed such an exclusive invitation into the mysteries of the universe.  Well, forget that bowl of candy and tell me already!  What could it be!!??

Ten minutes into the film “The Secret” was revealed and I was so thankful not to have to sit through the “world’s leading” scientists, psychologists and metaphysicians any longer because as it turned out, I knew this secret all along!  Let me save you those ten minutes, too, with the big reveal here at Two or Three Little Birds:  It seems “The Secret” is The Law of Attraction, or to unpack if for you in more familiar terms, The Power of Positive Thinking.  Of Hope.  Of Faith.  Of Patience and Endurance.  Of dreaming and drawing into your life what you desire, whatever that is.  You see, The Law of Attraction as described in this documentary, “The BIG Secret,” is really just imagining the life you want to live and possessing a positive attitude, along with measures of hope and faith and perseverance and patience that what you most desire will come to you.  Your ideas — your dreams and ambitions — live within you like a powerful magnet.  The key to living out this secret is to never cease imagining their reality — no matter how long it may take.  Be patient.  Hope.  Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.
