Book ReviewsThe Secret by Rhonda Byrne-Book Review
The Secret by Rhonda Bryne - Just Take it For What it Is. The Secret, if you have not seen the DVD or read the book, I am sure you have at least heard of it. There has been a lot of discussion about the production. So is The Secret the much waited answer we needed, or was it just cleverly marketed?
Well yes it was well marketed but it's a lot more than just that. The Secret stands by itself, there was no smoke and mirrors needed to introduce it.
There have been a lot of comments made that the ideas are no good and none of it works. If you watch or read, you will see that your frame of mind is a big factor. Expecting instant or cure-all fixes is probably not a good frame of mind. Personally I work on frame of mind a lot and it does wonders for me.
So when do I get what I asked for? It's been a long time now. You have to realize The Secret is not like a physical product that works or does not; it is a process. The one responsible for this process is you, there is no 800 number or email for support.
The Secret is presented as ideas that are all put together. I don't think it is meant to be an absolute guide. Meaning you don't have to follow exactly or it just won't work. Yes use it as a guideline, but also feel free to try some things just a bit differently if that suits you.
One thing that really strikes me about The Secret is that even with all the scientific content, it is very much a work of faith. If you accept and believe, like I do, then the possibilities are immeasurable. If you cannot bring yourself to believe (which is not a bad thing) then you will not get the benefit out of it.
Note: I did not go into the book or the DVD themselves as there is no way I could have done them justice. I can only hope someone will get something out of this.
