What the Bleep is the Secret?

Science and religion are being hijacked by paranormal pseudo science "fruit loops" with some really good things to say.....even if they may be mostly wrong are these really good messages they are sending? Movies like "What the Bleep do we Know" and books like "The Secret" would like us to think that this is our universe to control and we have the power to think things into existence just through the power of our thoughts and desires. This is a fanciful thought, but there is truth to it that we should all embrace in our lives. Out of the two, the movie "What the Bleep do we Know?" has more to say about who we are and the power we truly have than "The Secret" does. The core of the "Bleep" movie seems to have more to do with personal development while the "Secret" movie seems to focus on wishing for more money which as we should all know truly does not bring happiness though it does bring power.

It is true that you have power over the future. If you wake up each morning and start it all off with positive thoughts and work hard at erasing the negative from your life then your life will truly be better. If you think positive things and surround yourself with positive people, you will naturally work towards positive things. If you have a goal in your life and have the confidence to work for it then you are more inclined to make it happen. Think about a better relationship, making more money, think of a better career and think it into existence, you will more than likely take the steps necessary to bring it into your life. If you recognize the negative in your life and work at removing it, then you can truly have power over your future and grow as a person and as a contributor to the society in which we live. Not only do positive thoughts have a positive impact on your life, but they also have a positive impact on your physical health. If you have depression and negative thoughts then you impact your physical health and start a downward spiral that is hard to move back up. Always strive to move up and avoid that which brings you down.

Now having said that, let's look into the illogical parts of these new movements. You can wish and think positively for money all you want, but it's not going to come to you if you don't go and get it in a positive way. Thinking and saying positive things to water as it is freezing does not make prettier ice crystals just as thinking and saying negative things does not make the crystal formations uglier. Many things come into play when water freezes and it has never been scientifically proven that your thoughts and feelings have anything to do with it. Please heavily research Dr. Masaru Emoto before taking these things as truth for he specifically chooses the images to fit the results he is looking for. Some peoples' "universes" may be more powerful than yours no matter how positive you are with your thoughts. The universe is a chaotic and complex system that you have little power over. You can only positively control your immediate realm of existence and from that you do create minor fluctuations in the larger system.

Do listen to the core messages of these movies and books, but do not let them blur your understanding or willingness to understand the world as it is.
