Have you heard of this new book that is all the rage? It is by author Rhonda Byrne. I haven't personally read the book, but I have read several reviews of it. The gist of the book seems to be that ANYthing can be acheived through positive thinking, and visualization. It is based on The Law of Attraction. Now I am all for positive thinking. However, do you believe that you can really overcome disease, obtain wealth, and accomplish great things based on this theory? I'm not sure I would go that far. I would feel uncomfortable as a human being thinking that people aren't cured, rich, or successful because they didn't think about it and visualize it enough. What are your thoughts on The Secret?

I watched DVD few times. I have to agree with this book. Book is not talking about instant cure with positive thinking. It is long process. I use it for many, many years and I am very healthy. I don't even get colds. My advice for you is to read the book or watch the tape few times.

It sure seems to be the rage doesn't it? They are going to get me to buy it yet. I guess because "Oprah" endorsed it again that it has to be the best selling book of the year now? I agree that by having Positive thoughts you can HELP yourself work through or get through issues and difficult times. Cure yourself ??? I am not so sure. I know by being a Cancer Survivor that you do have to visualize yourself well to get through the long haul. DId that cure me? NO I don't think so. It took years of Radiation and Chemotherapy to do that. I tend to be pretty naive about the powers one can put in to affect, so I can't say for certain that it's NOT all that, but being the skeptic too I find it hard to believe. I would like to read the book and see what it has to say.
