Really liked the movie "Play It Forward."  We CAN make a difference in people's lives and circumstances.

Good Luck!

      It's true. Thoughts become fruition.

      Before any action takes place, a thought must come first.

      If bad thoughts prevail, then we..... as a people must learn how to monitor thoughts on a regular basis.

      Here's a prime example:

      As a limo driver, I take all kinds to and from the airport. It's no surprise that a fundamental understanding of how to deal with these folks comes naturally after time.....LOL

      It's very simple. If you kiss their butt through the whole trip, you'll get a nice tip. If you prefer not kiss butt, you won't get any gravy...get it?....LOL

      The gravy pays for the gas.

      "If you want to become rich, you'll have to find how to make other people rich at the same time", (paraphrasing).

                      Deepak Chopra

      ********************************************************

      The moral of this story is that the law of reciprocity works. It doesen't matter what faith you have. What goes around comes around. Karma....Vibes.....Gut feeling......ETC....

      It's funny that you mention Deepak Chopra, as he does not believe in the "Secret."  He criticized it on the Bill Mauer show about 2 months ago.  Not even the creator of the original "Secret" DVD endorses this ridiculous "new age" version.

      Word is, reading the book "The Law of Attraction" is your best bet at getting the meat and potatoes of this stuff.

        I didn't mean to lump the two together, it just popped up in my head.

        As far as the law of attraction.....Isn't that part of what the secret is all about? I didn't see the documentary or movie..whatever it is, but I saw some excerpts on youtube.

          The DVD is a joke.  I haven't read the book, but when met with my heavy criticism of the DVD, LoA supports swear by it.  Even an LoA Coach I debated with (audience included) told me the book is the way to go.

            Thanx...

            The one thing bothers me the most is that they teach people all this stuff, but they don't give specifics. Specifics like how to break out from the grind of mid level income. It's easier said than done. It also bothers me that the teachers involved are all authors...HMMMMM. Makes me think they want everyone to sell books, and that's how you become rich....LOL

              That's exactly what it's about.  I've seen some of those guys backtracking on the Larry King show.  On the DVD, it's claimed that if you cause everything to happen to you, even accidents.  So, someone called in and asked about 9/11.  "Was everyone that died at fault?"  Then the back-tracking started with "some things in the universe are meant to happen" or some nonsense like that.

              One guy even charges hundreds of dollars to "teach" the Law of Attraction.  Snake oil is alive and well.No Nod

                That's too bad.

                I guess "The Secret" Should be renamed as " The Sucker".

                    It's been known by all ancients since the great dawn:

                    We experience what we beliv

                    Think about it.....

                      Exactly - u got it baby!!

                      It amazes me how many people on lp - who have not read/listened to The Secret are willing to tear it down.

                      Delores is getting great benefit from it - why would u all put doubt in her mind?

                      Bottom line is - if it works for you - use it.  If it doesn't - don't.

                          Thank you.  I believe it was Ibsen who said - we all have toys in the attick and we all need them.  Never take away a peron's hopes and dreams.  Sometimes that's all they have left.

                            What we think about...we bring about!  I'm a believer in LOA.  I've had many positive things happen since I read The Secret...more lottery wins, a big raise at work, better relationships and feeling a lot better about myself.  So, Delores, and all the other believers out there...be grateful that you have an abundant of joy and prosperity ahead of you!!!  I am grateful for all of you!
