The Secret Is Out

"As a person of faith, this is an important DVD to have in my collection. So many people are looking for "a secret" to have a magical way of getting ahead in life, but we all know that there is nothing new under the sun. This DVD is a great resource to unwrap the veil of The Secret book, letting us know the true source of success.
Want to be successful in your life? Be a builder; build your relationships, build your career, build your knowledge, build your faith, and build others up!"
Don't miss the point!!!

"I think most, if not ALL, reviewers here missed the point. This video doesn't discredit Rhonda Byrne, The Secret movie, or the Law of Attraction. In fact, Dr. Ben Johnson (in this DVD) was in the original Secret movie. There is also one more scholar here who was interviewed by Rhonda for The Secret. but was later cut out, as was Jerry and Esther Hicks.
Anyway. This DVD (The Source of the Secret) just proposes that there is more to the Secret and the Law of Attraction than your own mind control. It just says that the real true source of getting what you want out of life comes from within, from a higher power, YOUR higher power. God, by the way, was even mentioned SEVERAL times in the original Secret, and no one was offended there.
Why, all of a sudden, is everyone offended when God was mentioned in THIS new DVD?
Bottom line, I saw BUY THIS, and watch it with an open mind and open heart, and you will NOT be disappointed."
Do not dismiss it completley

"I received this as a gift from someone who knew how much I liked The Secret material and watched it a few hours ago for the first time.
In reading the other reviews I see a number of people who feel as though they were misled about the subject of the this DVD.
I think that I can understand why; this DVD is not a continuation of The Secret which they believed it would be. Also, where The Secret is not presented with a strong religious affiliation, this DVD is, mostly, but not exclusively, presented with a christian perspective.
One of the strengths, I think, of The Secret is that it does not take any preference of any particular faith; what it proclaims works for any and all. But it does not, I think, exclude faith or God. Remember that Gratitude, expressing true heartfelt thanks, is a key element of what is called The Law of Attraction (LOA). It is my belief, and I think the point of the producers of this DVD that those thanks are to be directed to God. In short the creators of this DVD are saying that the Source of the Secret, or Law of Attraction is God.
The people who are presented here in the DVD do not dismiss the LOA, they simply want credit directed to where it is due. Further they warn that if your sole desire is to amass vast sums of material wealth you may not find the happiness you think that you will find in possessing all those things.
It starts off speaking rather positive of the LOA, then kinda steps back - scoffing at but not entirely dismissing the notion, just saying that it aint really just you directing the the universe to give you what you want. It does take strong issue as well with the concept that we invite bad things into our lives merely by our thoughts, citing as examples the Holocaust and 9/11, among others.
There are some parts of the views presented in this film which I do not hold as my own, but I think that its heart is in the right place; I do not think that it is intended to be deceptive or to ambush your beliefs.
I can accept its premise that we can not take sole credit for the fortunes in our lives, but, IMHO, I don't think that it gives us enough credit either."

"I found this movie very helpful and originally thought that this is what was needed in addition to The Secret. It explains why the average person might fail at making the Secret work for them to help them find the happiness in their life. I recommend this movie to everyone! Please ignore the negative reviews and have an open mind when watching this movie. People today seem to get very uncomfortable when anything about religion or God is brought up. I totally understand because of the people in life that go about religion the wrong way and try to force it on everyone else instead of simply teaching its teachings. Its easy for people to shut religion out because of this reason.
Nobody is going to have the same exact beliefs about anything and religion is the same. If you took a whole church of Catholics none of them are going to believe the same exact things about every single detail. They will however have a similar way of thinking, just like people with sucess in they're lives. I personally am a believer in God. Does that mean the everyone who is sucessful has to believe in God? No! But I feel that you should believe in something or someone that is greater that the human race if not God himself. I ask that you just watch the movie and have a open mind and don't shut it out just because they talk about religion."
