The secret?

The secretRecently two friends have separately mentioned to me the DVD “The Secret”. The film is about what it calls “The Law of Attraction”: what comes into your life is a reflection of your thoughts (“thoughts become things”). But the message the film peddles goes further, into what I’ve heard termed “prosperity consciousness”: if you want something, just imagine the feeling of having it, and you’ll get it.

Hang on! What’s this? Chanting for money again?

How about the website of Steve Pavlina (tag line: Personal development for smart people), who currently has this inspirational experiment running on the power of intention:

In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend $1,000,000 to come into my life and into the lives of everyone who holds this intention.

In other words: since God is within me, spirituality = selfishness.

The perfect spiritual message for the Western world.
