The Secret

I’m trying to listen to an Audiobook while doing other things in my PC. It is actually part of my work, cataloguing audiobooks without having to write the review. This audiobook came into my list: The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Normally I would just get the summary from the jacket or disc cover. But this time, out of curiosity I started to play it in my PC after reading about its summary. “.. In this audiobook you will discover The Secret … and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want. You will learn how to use The Secret in every single area of your life.” Now that caught my attention, I’ve been wondering what is it about. Well.. I’m half way into it now, not sure if I’ve catch all of it.
Here are some snapshots of what caught my ears are:
“You can change things around you by your thoughts
The power of gratitude stand above everything else, use it until it becomes a way of your life.
Think positively and you’ll get positive results. Focus on what you want like if you want to loose weight, focus on your perfect weight instead of “I need to loose weight”.
It is about frequency of thoughts. Maintain a good mood and happy thoughts, good things will come your way. Your visualization becomes real..
Start your day with good thoughts like I’m going to have good things happening to me today, or simply, I’m going to get a parking today, or there is always parking for me, I’m always lucky. And you will!
When you make believe, the result comes by.”

This audiobook claim that these people had used this method: Plato, Galileo, Beethoven, Edison, Carnegie and Einstein. Surprisingly this book is being catalogue under “Parapsychological and occult methods of achieving well-being, happiness, success” by the Library of Congress online catalogue. What? occult methods? I hope this is not denying the existence of God.

It is also available in Amazon with 1,968 reviews so far!! Its list price is US$23.95 but selling at US$14.37. When I look at some of the reviews, there are positive and negative ones.
Well, you’ll have to judge it by listening to it. To me, it does really help in getting myself a parking 😀
