I love to learn new things and have always been something of a sponge for information. The public library was one of my favorite hangouts right after graduating high school. I actually didn’t discover this thirst for information until after I was out of school. Unfortunately, school teaches us reading, writing, and arithmetic, but it doesn’t teach us how to think. It doesn’t teach us how to become conscious of the things we really desired like love, joy, and a lifetime of happiness. We have to go learn that stuff on our own. Also unfortunate, some of us never learn it, hardly experience it, and usually end up wondering where the joy, love, and happiness is.
More than 30 years after I began looking for answers on how to become conscious of joy, love, and a happy life, the Secret was put in front of me. I have said it before and it is true, the Secret (movie, book, and audio book) changed my life. Here’s how…
I remember when I was a child waking up Thanksgiving morning. I could smell the food already cooking. I can close my eyes right now and still smell my mother’s amazing cooking! Heavenly! It is without a doubt still my favorite food day of the entire year, and I feel blessed to experience that. Throughout that day I could see the evidence of the meal we were preparing to sit and share. The smells, sights, and sounds made me drool with anticipation.
To me, the Secret is the smells and the sights and sounds of the meal being prepared Thanksgiving morning, but it’s not the meal itself. The meal is the abundance of information that the Secret leads to.
The Secret changed my life because it made me hungry for the knowledge that allows me to live the life I’ve always dreamed of living, a life of joy, love, and happiness. I fill myself up with it every chance I get, and the more I take in and awaken to, the more I want. The good news about wanting more and more is that I can be as greedy as I want because there is a world of information waiting for me to discover, and I can have as much as I desire. We all can.
There are 29 teachers listed in the back of the Secret book. So far I own material from 8 of them and have read, watched, and learned outside of the Secret from many, many more. I read, watch, and listen on a daily basis to people who inspire me to awaken to my greatness. The Secret can change your life too if you tap into the wealth of information the Secret teachers have to share with you. If you want to feed yourself even better than the best Thanksgiving meal you can imagine, begin and don’t stop reading, watching, and listening to those who inspire you to awaken to your own greatness.
What have you read, watched, or listened to that changed your life?
