Book Called "The Secret"
February 23, 2013 6:35am CST
I am reading the book called " the Secret" I have completed first two chapter and have got stuck ! the book suggest that universe respond in the same way what we think, so i have started to think in a positive way and only what i want - i did that, now i have to trust, but i am not able to do that because my mind wonders around "what if" the book clearly says "Dont worry about how, what.." still.. Working toward it. Have you read this book? Do you have some example to share? please help me to take the next step.

Wow!You mean,'The Secret' by Rhonda Burns?Yes,I have read this extraordinary book,not once or twice,but more than ten times.It is from this book that I learned the whole universe conspires to fulfil what I want to be or have if I have a keen desire for it.Before reading this book,I was extremely shy by nature and so facing an interview was almost impossible for me.One day my father bought this book for me.And within a few days I was altogether a changed youngman.Now I can face anybody and would never get embarrassed.I am called to attend an interview and I am sure,the post is mine. It's certainly an excellent book.A must read for every individual regardless of their age.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well it sounds like a good book n as u said i completely with u that universe responds the way we respond to it. So we should try to respond in a positive way so that we will get a positive response in reply. this is the law of life and we should adhere to it. What say?

You should read the whole book. Don't become skeptical, continue reading, take your time. Many people expect overnight miracles and changes. But it is not so. It takes time, patience and a string belief to make the law of attraction work. I have noticed radical changes and some manifestations by using the secret. You are in safe hands. Read and change your life.

Thanks for sharing this discussion. I have heard about that book as well, but I haven't yet had the chance to read it from beginning to end. I suggest you read a book called "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho though. It's an interesting book about discovering a purpose for life also, and its message is pretty similar (except with a more religious background). What really caught me is similar to what you've read in The Secret.. it basically states that the universe conspires with you for what you really put your mind to. So if you think positively, positive things and situations are also attracted to you.

Another great book you may enjoy is Battlefield of the mind it is written by Joyce Myer. She really explains how the devil can interupt our thoughts, and how most of us think this way all the time. I use to think negative quite a bit I read her book and it makes total sense to me what she explains, and has helped me a lot.I used to think I was worthless,feelings of guilt all the time, felt like no one loved me not realizing this is the devils work or Satan this is how he wants us to feel, I know she has helped millions of people with her books,I cannot say enough good about this lady!

I have seen the secret video but few years ago I read a book that was written in secret language of thousands year age which has discovered in Peru jungles. The book was talking about future of humanbin from the year of 2000 and that was so amazing, I have forgotten the name of book In english as I read that in my mother language but writer is Jamez Red Field, after reading the book, if you go throgh those steps, you will see the amazing ways that events come to you and maybe knowing how the universe work. and mostly those who read that book from all over the world with amazing way connected to each other and have messages for each othe as nothing happens accidently, everything has message for us even voice of a bird, right now I feel too much sleepy of talking about steps of that book but that is wonderful and each steps becomes true day by day. that time my proffesor advice me it take responsibility if you go through that then go and continue other wise till you are not ready to accept that do not force yourself for that as that acceptance has a time for each of us to move and go for that. I also as right now suffer too much in my life, with some of those affirmation and thaught try to make some changes and see how it works. when I start it in positive way result comes fast but it will leave you fast too if you stop that so you should be practical in that. I am losing my faith with attack of negative thought so I have stuck there, but the one who is able break that negative and release

I have read the book and it does work but you need to put your time and effort into what the books is telling you. You need to think positive toughts and you need to set goals and put your mind into getting these goals accomplished. If you think positive, positive things will begin to happen because you are letting these good things into your soul and atmosphere. If you think negative, negative things will then enter into your surroundings. After I read this book I made a vision board using magazine pictures for positive energy and a new beginning. I wanted out of where I was living, due to the weather, the mortgage payments, and feeling so alone even though my daughter and her family were living with me. I didn't feel complete. This happened about 2009. Once I put this vision board together with my hopes, dreams and positive energy things began to happen. I was able to sell my home within two months and move to Puerto Rico not having to deal with the cold weather, mortgage payments, and no longer feeling alone with no direction in my life. Now its 2013 and I made the best decision in my life and I'm totally happy and grateful for reading this book and getting my life back on on the right track. Good luck and hope you accomplish your dreams that are waiting for you to experience.

I haven't actually read the book but I've heard the audio book and as you stated, it's all about giving out positive energy to the universe and then that energy will eventually come back to you positively and you must envision what you want your life to be and as long as you focus on that and do something that will lead to that dream, you will actually fulfill it if you focus on it hard enough.

Hi I have not read the book however my sister had given me quotes from this book and I found it interesting. If you are enjoying this book I read a lot of Dr Wayne Dyer books as well (very postive) I have been reading books on postive thinking for years and it is so true where the mind goes the body follows so if you are thinking positive thoughts you will have great things follow. Another tip I heard was each morning you wake up tell yourself I believe something wonderful will happen today,it is amazing how it works you will find even people around you become more positive. When you find you are thinking negative thoughts,switch to a positive thought right away! Good luck,keep positive

Hi, I also started reading this book and read about 3-4 chapters and at that time I became like a person with completely positive attitude. For next 15 days I never thought about anything negative,in fact I used to ask people around me not to talk negative but I found no change in the circumstances around me. In fact the worst part about thinking only positive to such an extent is that one can not prepare himself for the bad result and when anything opposite to your will happens you become shattered. This is just the case happened with me and thought of sharing it.
