I just recently watched "The Secret". It was very intriguing to "see" all of the "Magic of Believing" and "Strangest Secret in the World" stuff put in to visual form. The metaphysical angle is what really intrigues me..... like wow, what if it really works like that? Now wait, I do believe we are a result of our thinking and choices up until now, but the whole "my thoughts/faith can change the way external atoms react to give me what I want" ...or give me what I think about. That is like whoa! For me, prayer is the avenue to "ask and ye shall receive". But prayer along with a renewing of my mind to believe in such a way that the "universe" (which is the Lord for me) will react based upon my belief.... that is scary powerful! I mean, the bible says, "faith of a mustard seed...", but to actually "understand" how faith works... meaning what happens in the external unseen forces (such as energy) when faith is grasped and applied. It just makes it more believable.... like, I can do this! It brings it out of the spiritual and in to "real world" application, if that makes sense?
I'm still pondering and searching through all of this so I haven't drawn an absolute conclusion yet. Anything that I incorporate in to my life, I need to be able to "back up" with scripture in some form or fashion. I haven't always done that, but I try to be more conscious of it now. But hey... "seek and ye shall find" right? -G
