Movie Reviews

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is expressing the message that all the great spiritual teachers of the ages such as Jesus, Bhudda, Confucius, Muhammad, and contemporary thinkers such as Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and James Allen have echoed. The message is simple but awesome, "thought, feeling, desire are at the very heart of material reality". It is because of this mystical quality that it may be easily dismissed as it has been by the massess through out history. At the same time the principle here as it has come to be best expressed in "quantum physics" maybe presented in a way that oversimplifies the complexity of the soul and reality. It has that amoral childlike quality that the greek Gods possessed, "omnipotence to serve their own egocentrism". But in so doing increases in clearity, power to motivate, light the imagination, and plants a powerful seed."

"Although some of the reviews suggest it, this is not the documentary movie that I have been recommending to my friends and family. I have not seen this particular movie, just wanted to give a second warning to those whom I had given this link to."

"I actually ordered this product by mistake but that is on me. I want to make sure that those who are looking for the secret regarding the law of attraction, please do not buy this by mistake as I did. Although it is a fairly decent story, it is not what you are looking for in the secret so purchase what you are looking for first and perhaps if you have extra money and time to spend then you can buy this one also, further down on your list.

This movie is about a life secret that people had been carrying for years. It finally caught up with them. It is a decent story, but definitely not "The Secret" you are expecting for spiritual growth, enlightenment, and/or financial success.

Excellent film!

"I think the real value of the film lies in the fact that it gives a true meaning to "think optimistically" and "think positive". I have come across many people who believe they think positive but all they really do is applying a meaningless label to a heap of anxieties, pessimism, fear, you name it. That is not positive thinking. The film was invaluable for me in explaining how real positive thinking differs from what I have just mentioned.

I personally find that although they do repeat these slogans several times in the film, they have a good reason to do so: every time they expand on the concept and explain how to start thinking positively when you may find that you have no reason to do so or you do not know how to do so with all the unhappiness and negativity in your life.

I am familiar with the concept of positive thinking/the law of attraction, and have read a good deal of the literature on this concept, from a quantum physics, psychological or even theological point of view, but have not found such a vivid, comprehensible, step-by-step explanation of what it actually means and how to practice it.

If you just tell people that "according to the law of attraction you will attract more negativity in your life" they may not understand the hows and whys of this process. This film provides a detailed and highly useful explanation of the hows and whys involved in the creative process, according to which you need to feel, expect and act to elicit change."
