Is The Secret aka LoA Offensive?
After recently watching The Secret on DVD, I have to say some of the claims could be considered very offensive!
For example, The Secret claims that every problem in your life, or any negative thing that has ever happened to you, was somehow manifested into your life by your own thoughts. In other words, everything bad that has ever happened to you or will ever happen to you, (regardless of other peoples actions) is all your own fault.
It even goes as far as claiming that people who get cancer or people who have been involved in serious accidents, attracted these things into their lives via their negative thoughts. IMO this is even worse than belief in a supernatural god, at least religion shows people compassion!
Also, this kind of thinking has the potential to cause people serious harm! People who are seriously ill might stop taking treatment or medication, believing that positive thoughts alone are the answer to all their prayers.
It also suggests that every attempt at solving one of the worlds problems, i.e. terrorism, hunger, poverty etc (causes people have died for) has all just been a waste of time and energy. Instead it suggests we simply think positive thoughts, in the hope that the universe will somehow magically solve all our problems and make all our dreams come true... you can't be serious?
Does anyone else find this offensive?
