The Bigger Secret

A+ A-
"The law of attraction is a law of nature. It is impersonal and it does not see good things or bad things. It is receiving your thoughts and reflecting back to you those thoughts as your life experience. The law of attraction simply gives you whatever it is you are thinking about." - From The Secret

"This is really fun. It's like having the Universe as your catalogue. You flip through it and say, `I'd like to have this experience and I'd like to have that product and I'd like to have a person like that.' It is You placing your order with the Universe. It's really that easy." - Dr. Joe Vitale

"When you visualize then you materialize. Here's an interesting thing about the mind: we took Olympic athletes and had them run their event only in their mind, and then hooked them up to sophisticated biofeedback equipment. Incredibly, the same muscles fired in the same sequence when they were running the race in their mind as when they were running it on the track. How could this be? Because the mind can't distinguish whether you're really doing it or whether it's just a practice. If you've been there in the mind, you'll go there in the body." - Dr. Dr. Denis Waitley

Everyone is talking about this book by Rhonda Byrne...and with good reason. It taps into a Law that God created called the Law of Attraction. We find this in the Bible in numerous places. One of the most famous is Proverbs 23:7, "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he...". Many in the New Age movement have discovered this Spiritual Law and have acquired many followers because there is power in using this principle. However, the power is limited, and I'll explain why in just a moment.

David Yonggi Cho is the Senior Pastor for the World's largest congregation. He writes in his book, The Fourth Dimension, the following:

"Then God spoke to my heart, "Son, as the second dimension includes and controls the first dimension, and the third dimension includes and controls the second dimension, so the fourth dimension includes and controls the third dimension, producing a creation of order and beauty. The spirit is the fourth dimension. Every human being is a spiritual being as well as a physical being. They have the fourth dimension as well as the third dimension in their hearts." So men, by exploring their spiritual sphere of the fourth dimension through the development of concentrated visions and dreams in their imaginations, can brood over and incubate the third dimension, influencing and changing it. This is what the Holy Spirit taught me" (Cho, The Fourth Dimension 1979:p40)

We are Spiritual beings having a physical experience here on earth. There are physical laws; however, they are superceded by Spiritual Laws. God is the creator of all of these laws. God is the Supreme Being. This is the part that is missing from the New Age philosophy. While there is some power in the Spiritual Law of Attraction that they've discovered, that power is limited to their own spiritual power. It's great to get manifestations on earth, but the purpose must be to give glory to God. Otherwise, the end result is death. Out of all of the spiritual leaders that have lived in the past, Jesus is the only one that escaped physical death. The Secret is your spirit and spiritual power, The Bigger Secret is the Holy Spirit and God's Spiritual power.

In future posts, I'll discuss The Fourth Dimension and The Bigger Secret in greater detail.
