  • About The Secret.

    Remember the once very popular video about 'The Law of Attraction'? That if you wanted something hard enough, all you had to do was to just think hard enough.

    Well apparently the producers kept a secret from you too.
    They didn't mention you had to have good intentions behind what you want,
    Makes sense if they want the video to sell.
    You put ‘good intentions’ as prerequisite & sales are bound to dip.
    How many of you can say what you want is of pure heart?

    Otherwise the consequences can be so severe you'll ultimately be the one suffering.
    Sometimes so intense that it goes down a never-ending path of pain and hopelessness, not only for yourself, but for the people involved.

    I'm glad I stayed sane and am living to tell this tale. Some are still picking up the pieces. Some may never.
