The Secret

Some of you have seen this, and even made me aware of it (thanks Prusa), but for everyone else, "The Secret" is a book right now that is #1 on the NYT bestseller list. The author has been fully endorsed by Oprah and obviously hundreds of thousands of people are buying into it as well. Here are a few quotes:
"Your thoughts are the primary cause of everything."
"This is The Secret to everything—the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted."

And finally, a thought that really makes me disgusted. (Remember "You"=each one of us)
The earth turns on its orbit for You. The oceans ebb and flow for You. The birds sing for You. The sun rises and it sets for You. The stars come out for You. Every beautiful thing you see, every wondrous thing you experience, is all there for You. Take a look around. None of it can exist, without You. No matter who you thought you were, now you know the Truth of Who You Really Are. You are the master of the Universe. You are the heir to the kingdom. You are the perfection of Life. And now you know The Secret


Check out a great counter review here.


  1. it's interesting that all sorts of cults and wackos have claimed a similar "secret" understanding of God and spirituality since the days of the beginning of time.

    praise God that though we may not all have eyes to see, there is no secret to knowing Him.

    btw, i think that book is totally ripping off the song "yellow". chris martin should sue. . .

  2. oprah is my fav celebrity, she is so clever and smart. she always takes sides and holds firm to what she believes. she is not scared to call people out or be politically incorrect. she is empowering women/people everywhere.
    the populus

  3. we were actually talking about this the other week(me and a friend), I had never heard of it till he showed me the seems to basically say that you are God or a God and that life revolves around your positive "energy" to make it perfec or something like that...
