No time for depression

A number of years ago someone sent me a very cool video Planet Earth and it really moved me. I was curious about this thing called "The Secret" and looked into it further. I ended up ordering the DVD and I didn't mention it to my wife because I was not sure if it was a sham or not. When it arrived I watched it on my computer when my wife was not around. To my amazement, it really was an incredible secret that changed my life from that moment on. When I was part way through the DVD, my wife walked in and did not say a word. She stayed behind me and watched over my shoulder. When it was over I realized that I had been crying most of the way through it. When I turned to my wife, she just said "Wow, where did you get that?". I have seen The Secret a number of times since then and each time I am emotionally moved by it. For my life has always followed the law of attraction even though I did not know it.

Someone very close to me spent many years of her life suffering from depression. I always offered positive influence, but it didn't seem to be enough to break through. She was on medication and tried self help groups, but they showed little improvement. One day I decided to order her a DVD and when it arrived, she called me after watching it. She said that it was "unbelievable" and asked if it was real. I said it has to be, or I wouldn't have sent it to her in the first place. She watched it again and then again and her transformation was what I would call unbelievable. Today she is a very happy and positive person. She inspires others and lives a charmed life.

I don't write this post because I am getting kick-backs from The Secret. They don't even know I exist except for the two transactions I made purchasing DVDs. Its just that I feel so helpless when I hear other people down and out, complaining about someone or something, arguing just for the sake of arguing. I want people, especially those I care about, to know that life is amazing. I want them to know that they can do ANYTHING they want to, and that it all begins with a positive thought.

If I could come up with an analogy as to how it works, I would just tell you to watch Star Wars Episode I. I think George Lucas knew The Secret a very long time ago and those movies were his way of letting people know. "...the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." Understanding the Secret is similar to becoming a Jedi. Think about that, then go get your DVD

May the force will be with you.
