If I wasn't bothered enough by the book, I had but to go to the website to look deeper into The Secret's hole. Had I wanted to look even deeper, I could've paid the fee to become an Abundant Member. No need. It is even more excluding than the book.
I decided not to waste the time. I have other things to do.
I realize I'm not unique. There are over 1500 reviews of this book up on Amazon alone. Lots of those are angry reviews.
After a little while, I decided it wasn't worth being angry about. I'd try being amused.
Then, there's the fear of one's own thoughts. I think my favorite was here:
Nothing can come into your experience unless you summon it through persistent thoughts.
--page 28, which also suggests that events in history where masses of lives were lost were attracted by the thoughts of those people.
Yes, you brought that car accident upon yourself with your thoughts. (I'm not kidding, it's on page 27.)
Possibly a disclaimer would help. "For entertainment purposes only."
By the same token do those who buy into Byrnes program deserve to be duped? After all, not all of the reviews I read were against the book. Some were from people who were keeping The Secret by their beds, buying copies for friends and family. Well -meaning people looking for answers.
Whatever...it's not like I never bought sea monkeys
g'night and thanks for checking in
