I am usually wary of psychological mumbo jumbo – basically because it has a huge potential to influence you. Also because the way you think should be entirely according to you own calling, and not according to how X or Y advise you to. So, I was a little sceptical of this documentary style movie – “The Secret”, which claimed to hold the secret of all success, fulfilment and accomplishments.

The Universe has a secret which had been hidden from all mankind. Only the hugely successful and immortal geniuses could decode “The secret” and kept it under wraps across centuries and generations. This powerful secret was the cause of their successes, and it is so compelling that it has the potential to transform the life of anyone. This is how the movie begins. Based on a book of the same name by Rhonda Byrne, the movie has been filmed like a run through of the Discovery channel, with psychologists, nuclear physicists, doctors, healers, priests and scholars sharing their experiences and revealing the power of the Secret.

This all powerful secret is “The Law of Attraction”. The human mind is amazing, and it is so potent that we can do anything just by having the desire to do it. We attract whatever we desire and visualize. We create our own universe, with the power of our minds and our entire world rearranges itself according to our actions and aspirations.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” – Buddha

The idea is intensely appealing, and the thought that we can chart our fortune only by thinking about it is anybody’s dreams come true!  The whole movie is shot like an investigative report, in which we are given clues, examples, hints and situations which support or prove this theory. The arguments seem too preachy sometimes, but the basic message of positive thinking makes an impact.

It is a movie which can be watched with an open mind, so go for it when you are in the need for some aggressive positive thinking. I haven’t started trying it out yet, and will let you know when I discover whether this thing works  🙂 !!
