100 quotes from "The Secret"

Post by jessicasilverman on Tue Dec 13, 2011 11:34 pm

For those of you who have never heard of The Secret, it is a 90 minute
movie, now sweeping the world about the law of attraction. Here are the top 100 quotes from the movie.

1. We all work with one infinite power

2. The Secret is the Law of Attraction (LOA)

3. Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting

4. We are like magnets - like attract like. You become AND attract what
you think

5. Every thought has a frequency. Thoughts send out a magnetic energy

6. People think about what they don't want and attract more of the same

7. Thought = creation. If these thoughts are attached to powerful
emotions (good or bad) that speeds the creation

8. You attract your dominant thoughts

9. Those who speak most of illness have illness, those who speak most of
prosperity have it..etc..

10. It's not "wishful" thinking.

11. You can't have a universe without the mind entering into it

12. Choose your thoughts carefully .. you are a masterpiece of your life

13. It's OK that thoughts don't manifest into reality immediately (if we
saw a picture of an elephant and it instantly appeared, that would be
too soon)

14. EVERYTHING in your life you have attracted .. accept that fact ..
it's true.

15. Your thoughts cause your feelings

16. We don't need to complicate all the "reasons" behind our emotions.
It's much simpler than that. Two categories .. good feelings, bad
feelings.

17. Thoughts that bring about good feelings mean you are on the right
track. Thoughts that bring about bad feelings means you are not on the
right track.

18. Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in
the process of becoming

19. You get exactly what you are FEELING

20. Happy feelings will attract more happy circumstances

21. You can begin feeling whatever you want (even if it's not there)..
the universe will correspond to the nature of your song

22. What you focus on with your thought and feeling is what you attract
into your experience

23. What you think and what you feel and what actually manifests is
ALWAYS a match - no exception

24. Shift your awareness

25. "You create your own universe as you go along" Winston Churchill

26. It's important to feel good ( ( ( (((good))) ) ) )

27. You can change your emotion immediately .. by thinking of something
joyful, or singing a song, or remembering a happy experience

28. When you get the hang of this, before you know it you will KNOW you
are the creator

29. Life can and should be phenomenal .. and it will be when you
consciously apply the Law of Attraction

30. Universe will re-arrange itself accordingly

31. Start by using this sentence for all of your wants: "I'm so happy
and grateful now that.... "

32. You don't need to know HOW the universe is going to rearrange itself

33. LOA is simply figuring out for yourself what will generate the
positive feelings of having it NOW

34. You might get an inspired thought or idea to help you move towards
what you want faster

35. The universe likes SPEED. Don't delay, don't second-guess, don't
doubt..

36. When the opportunity or impulse is there .. ACT

37. You will attract everything you require - money, people,
connections.. PAY ATTENTION to what's being set in front of you

38. You can start with nothing .. and out of nothing or no way - a WAY
will be provided.

39. HOW LONG??? No rules on time .. the more aligned you are with
positive feelings the quicker things happen

40. Size is nothing to the universe (unlimited abundance if that's what
you wish) We make the rules on size and time

41. No rules according to the universe .. you provide the feelings of
having it now and the universe will respond

42. Most people offer the majority of their thought in response to what
they are observing (bills in the mail, being late, having bad
luck...etc..)

43. You have to find a different approach to what is through a different
vantage point

44. "All that we are is a result of what we have thought" - Buddha

45. What can you do right now to turn your life around?? Gratitude

46. Gratitude will bring more into our lives immediately

47. What we think about and THANK about is what we bring about

48. What are the things you are grateful for?? Feel the gratitude..
focus on what you have right now that you are grateful for

50. VISUALIZE!!! Rehearse your future

51. VISUALIZE!!! See it, feel it! This is where action begins

52. Feel the joy .. feel the happiness Surprised)

53. An affirmative thought is 100 times more powerful than a negative
one

54. "What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists."
Alexander Graham Bell

55. Our job is not to worry about the "How". The "How" will show up out
of the commitment and belief in the "what"

56. The Hows are the domain of the universe. It always knows the
quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between you and your dream

57. If you turn it over to the universe, you will be surprised and
dazzled by what is delivered .. this is where magic and miracles happen

58. Turn it over to the universe daily.. but it should never be a chore.

they have habituated ways of being.

61. They remember to do it all the time

62. Create a Vision Board .. pictures of what you want to attract ..
every day look at it and get into the feeling state of already having
acquired these wants

63. "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming
attractions." Albert Einstein

64. Decide what you want .. believe you can have it, believe you deserve
it, believe it's possible for you

65. Close your eyes and visualize having what you already want - and the
feeling of having it already.

66. Focus on being grateful for what you have already .. enjoy it!! Then
release into the universe. The universe will manifest it.

67. "Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve" W. Clement
Stone

68. Set a goal so big that if you achieved it, it would blow your mind.

69. When you have an inspired thought, you must trust it and act on it.

70. How can you become more prosperous?? INTEND IT!!

71. 'Checks are coming in the mail regularly'... or change your bank

feeling of having it.

72. Life is meant to be abundant in ALL areas...

73. Go for the sense of inner joy and peace then all outside things
appear

74. We are the creators of our universe

75. Relationships: Treat yourself the way you want to be treated by
others .. love yourself and you will be loved

76. Healthy respect for yourself

77. For those you work with or interact with regularly .. get a notebook
and write down positive aspects of each of those people.

78. Write down the things you like most about them (don't expect change
from them). Law of attraction will not put you in the same space
together if you frequencies don't match

79. When you realize your potential to feel good, you will ask no one to
be different in order for you to feel good.

80. You will free yourself from the cumbersome impossibilities of

81. You are the only one that creates your reality

82. No one else can think or feel for you .. its YOU .. ONLY YOU.

85. Parts of our bodies are replace every day, every week..etc... Within
a few years we have a brand new body

86. See yourself living in a new body. Hopeful = recovery. Happy =
happier biochemistry. Stress degrades the bod.

87. Remove stress from the body and the body regenerates itself. You can
heal yourself

88. Learn to become still .. and take your attention away from what you
don't want, and place your attention on what you wish to experience

89. When the voice and vision on the inside become more profound and
clear than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your life

90. You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you want it.
You are here to create the world around you that you choose.

91. And allow the world as others choose to
see it, exist as well

92. People think that if everyone knows the power of the LOA there won't
be enough to go around .. This is a lie that's been ingrained in us and
makes so many greedy.

93. The truth is there is more than enough love, creative ideas, power,
joy, happiness to go around.

94. All of this abundance begins to shine
through a mind that is aware of it's own infinite nature. There's enough
for everyone. See it. Believe it. it will show up for you.

95. So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you choose all the
things you want.. get behind the good feelings of all your wants.

96. Write your script. When you see things you don't want, don't think
about them, write about them, talk about them, push against them, or
join groups that focus on the don't wants... remove your attention from
don't wants.. and place them on do wants

97. We are mass energy. Everything is energy. EVERYTHING.

98. Don't define yourself by your body .. it's the infinite being that's
connected to everything in the universe.

99. One energy field. Our bodies have distracted us from our energy. We
are the infinite field of unfolding possibilities. The creative force.

100. Are your thoughts worthy of you? If not - NOW is the time to change
them. You can begin right were you are right now. Nothing matters but
this moment and what you are focusing your attention on.

The Secret is crap. And I don't think you've considered all it's implications.

I think you overestimated the attention span of your audience. I'm not reading 100 quotes from ANYTHING. Get off your ass and discuss something. Any moron can copy. Big deal, you read a book. Something every 5 year old can do.

Um, yes, please pick one of those to discuss and give us your views on it. I have to say honestly, I am not at all impressed with the Secret.

I don't have much patience for "the Secret".

I disagree with the first principle you mentioned. Start there. If we get past it, that will be surprising.

I do not mean to spam, but I haven't seen as succinct and reasonable critique of the implications of the secret as I have in this short video.

Re: 100 quotes from "The Secret"

Post by Southern Hick on Wed Dec 14, 2011 7:51 pm

Good evening ladies and gentlemen[smile].
Hmmm....
With all of those quotes you've provided, one cannot help but wonder wherein the secrecy/secret/any secrets lay. Wink

I believe in the possibility and potential of affirmation magick, to an extent.
The problem that I personally have with the mentality of "The Secret", is that,....how does this belief system explain negative events that occur on innocent people or an unsuspecting society? For example, when that terrible earthquake struck Japan recently, and then came the Tidelwaves, and the Powerplant's destruction on top of THAT,....if I understand things correctly, then according to "The Secret", that means that all of those poor Japanese people brought all of that upon themselves...somehow, for some insane reason, and I think that THAT is ridiculous. If I be wrong in my logic about this then please correct me Jessicasilverman, or anyone else.
I am always happy to throw new ideas around.

Ok.. Since Jessica, OBVIOUSLY, doesn't have the courage of her convictions... I'll get this started...
1. We all work with one infinite power

Really? And who would that be? Or What?

I work with several myself, although whether they are infinite for finite, I don't know.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen[smile].
My apologies for not responding back sooner. It has been a trying day.

SacrificialGoddess, post#9...
Aaahhh....just as I suspected.

Where IS that dear lady[Jessicasilverman, that is]to help give us a better understanding on these things?
Jessicasilverman, your kind assistance on this matter would be most appreciated. Don't just run off now and leave all of us hanging onto what could be incorrect assumptions about the contents of your posts, and perhaps ever your character.

I think that the 'One Infinite Power' that I work with the most is the power of self indulgence. Or perhaps it's Denial.
......I may have misunderstood......

I like this one, #3...."Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting." Also #7 and #8.
And yet despite this, that civilization of 'hot' Alien lesbian cat-women looking for an Earth man to be their King and teach them about the concept of "love" [/i]STILL[i] hasn't found me and carried me off[yet? I sure as heck don't expect my retirement plan to take care of me in my old age. Mad ].
Explain THAT, Jessicasilverman.

3. Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting
LMAO!!!!!!!!!! I'm glad Hick pointed this one out!
I KNOW this is a lie. Cuz I haven't attracted hot young male strippers since I dated one in 1986.


OMG...That was just too easy, I couldn't pass it up.

Hick, I see you and I think the same way. I swear, I only read your post up to "Also #7"...Then wrote my reply. I just finished reading it, after I said that about the stripper.

Good morning[smile].
Well, the concept sure never fed any of those poor starving people in Ethiopia I was always hearing about from my parents when I was a child....
But then, according to "The Secret", they want to be in that plight,..for some reason..[?!]..or, something. It sounds like an easy way to justify never having to help or feel sorry for anyone.
Usually in my life, the only people I've ever encountered that held and tried to pass off such a strange philosophy were ...
A. People who have never actually had to suffer through any real hardships.
B. Sociopath assholes who were just trying to shut up and drive away people who were going through a bad time in their lives.
C. Highly religious people who were desperately trying to maintain a degree of optimism while they were going through a personal hardship.

There is a lady who comes to my town every few months that teaches this um, stuff, I can't remember what she called it, maybe something along the lines of positive thinking. She takes up a "love offering" after speaking, just like a preacher. And the people who are really into it can schedule one on one time with her for a fee. I was invited to go once by a friend and did mainly because I had no idea what it was. There were a lot of refugees from the 60s - yuppies - and people with health problems, some who swore she really helped them. It wasn't for me but I guess there are people who want to believe it.

Good afternoon everyone[smile].
I have it upon one of my bookshelves somewhere. My mother got it when it first came out years ago. If you like Tmarie64, I shall sell you the copy for a nickle. pirat
Or, you can probably find a copy within your nearest Thrift Store for a few cents more.

I have heard that ebooks are starting to rise in price. The local news said that some ebooks were now more expensive that the print versions. That's crazy!

eBooks are the Wild West right now. The publishers don't know how to deal with it. They don't know what they want to do about eBooks and libraries either.

Some publishers want to treat ebooks like paperbacks. You know, first the hardback, then some months later the ebook, then the paperback. They do not want a cheaper ebook to compete head to head with the hardback. I can't blame them, really.

Lots of things about the publishing business is broken right now.

I got the newest Stephen King book, 11/23/63, on the day it was released. I also have in for the newest Dean Koontz novel due out on 12/27. Both CONSIDERABLY cheaper than the hardback.

BTW, 11/23/63, is very, very good. It's taking me awhile to read it cuz we're so busy at work. But I'm really liking it.

King is back to a theme he first explored with The Dead Zone; if you could do something to change history: prevent a tragedy or stop a Hitler-would you, should you? What are the unintended consequences?

So far, I'm happy with the book. The best part is if things are better he can go back to his time, go back thru "the rabbit hole", and time resets itself back to what it was originally.

If you like alternative history, check out Harry Turtledove: http://www.amazon.com/Guns-South-Harry-Turtledove/dp/0345384687/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_3
I really enjoy his work.
