"The Secret" Unauthorized Transcript - Chapter One

Following is the first chapter of a completely unauthorized partial transcript of "The Secret".

I do this as a public service, not to imping on the commercial value of this DVD. I've found incredible nuggets of data available through this particular DVD. I've separately blogged that people should used this DVD as Bob Proctor recommends - listening to this every day for at least 30 days in order to re-program your thinkining over to continued, habitual use of the Law of Attraction.

This transcript is only a complilation of the subtitles, adding in the quotes which appear on-screen through that DVD. There is no attempt to link the various teachers with their quotes. I've edited this transcript with an eye to readability, keeping similar thoughts together in paragraphs.

Please enjoy and comment as you wish. But buy and give "The Secret" DVD. What this transcript covers has far more meaning when you read it after having listened to this DVD several times.

Chapter 1

A year ago, my life had collapsed around me. I'd worked myself into exhaustion. My father died suddenly, and my relationships were in turmoil. Little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest gift. I'd been given a glimpse of a great Secret.

I began tracing The Secret back through history. I couldn't believe all the people who knew this. They were the greatest people in history. Why doesn't any one know this?

All I wanted to do was share The Secret with the world. I began searching for people alive today who know The Secret. One by one they began to emerge.

You know this Secret gives you everything you want... happiness, health, and wealth. You can have, do, or be anything you want.

We can have whatever it is that we choose. I don't care how big it is.

What kind of a house do you want to live in?

Do you want to be a millionaire?

What kind of a business do you want to have?

Do you want more success?

What do you really want?

I've seen many miracles take place in people's lives. Financial miracles, miracles of physical healing, mental healing, healing in relationships. All of this happened because of knowing how to apply The Secret.

This is the great Secret of life.

“The secret is the answer
to all that has been,
all that is, and all
that will ever be.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

You've probably been sitting there wondering, what is this Secret? I'll tell you how I've come to understand it. We all work with one infinite power. We all guide ourselves by exactly the same laws. The natural laws of the universe are so precise, that we don't even have any difficulty building space ships, we can send people to the moon, and we can time the landing with the precision of a fraction of a second. I don't care if you're in India, if you're in Australia, New Zealand, Stockholm or London or Toronto or Montreal or New York. We're all working with one power.

One law.

It's attraction.

The Secret is the law of attraction. Everything that's coming into your life you are attracting into your life. And it's attracted to you by virtue of the images you're holding in your mind. It's what you're thinking.

You see whatever is going on in your mind you are attracting to you. Now wise people have always known that. You can go right back to the ancient Babylonians, they've always known this. Did you know a small select group of people earns around 96% of all the money that's being earned?

Do you think that's an accident?

It's no accident.

It's designed that way. They understand something. They understand The Secret. And you are being introduced to The Secret.

The simplest way for me to look at the law of attraction is if I think of myself as a magnet, and I know that a magnet will attract to it. Very basically put, the law of attraction says that like attracts like.

But we're really talking at a level of thought.

Our job as humans is to hold onto the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear in our minds what we want, and from that we start to invoke one of the greatest laws in the universe, and that's the law of attraction.

You become what you think about most but you also attract what you think about most.

If you see it in here, you're going to hold it here.

And that principle can be summed up in three simple words. Thoughts become things.

What most people don't understand is a thought has a frequency. Every thought has a
frequency. We can measure a thought.

And so if you're thinking that thought over and over and over again, or if you're imagining in your mind, having that brand new car, having the money that you need, building that company, finding your soul mate.

If you're imagining what that looks like, you're emitting that frequency on a consistent basis.

Thoughts are sending out that magnetic signal that is drawing the parallel back to you.

See yourself living in abundance, and you will attract it.

It always works, it works every time, with every person.

Here's the problem.

Most people are thinking about what they don't want, and they're wondering why it shows up over and over and over again.

The law of attraction doesn't care whether you perceive something to be good or bad or whether you don't want it, or whether you do want it.

It's responding to your thoughts. So if you're sitting there looking at a mountain of debt, feeling terrible about it, that's the signal you're putting out into the universe. 'Wow, I feel really bad because of all this debt I've got.' You're just affirming it to yourself, you feel it on every level of your being. That's what you're going to get more of.

The law of attraction is really obedient. When you think of the things that you want, and you focus on them, with all of your intention, the law of attraction will give you what you want, every time.

When you focus on the things that you don't want, I don't want to be late, I don't want to be late, you really are calling that into existence.

The law of attraction doesn't hear that you don't want it, and so it's going to show up over and over and over again. The law of attraction is not bias to wants or don't wants. It manifests the things that you're thinking. The law of attraction is always working, whether you believe it or understand it or not. It's always working. It's working as much as you're thinking.

Anytime your thoughts are flowing, the law of attraction is operational. When you're thinking about the past, the present or the future, the law of attraction is working. It's an ongoing process. You don't press pause, you don't press stop. It is forever in action, as your thoughts are.

Creation is always happening. Every time an individual has a thought or a prolonged chronic way of thinking, they're in the creation process. Something is going to manifest out of those thoughts. Law of attraction says we'll give you whatever it is you say and focus on. And so if you're complaining about how bad it is, what you're creating is more of how bad it is.

I had a student named Robert. Robert was a gay man, and he was taking an on line course I have, part of which entails email access to me. And he outlined all of the grim realities of his life. In his job, all the people ganged up on him, and it was constantly stressful because of how nasty they were with him. When he walked down the street, he said every block he was accosted by homophobic people who wanted to abuse him in some way. He was wanting to become a stand-up comedian, and when he went out and did a stand-up comedy job, everybody heckled him about being gay. And his whole life was one of a lot of unhappiness and misery, and it all focused around this idea of being attacked because he was gay.

I began to teach him that he was focusing on what he did not want. I directed him back to his email that he sent me and said, 'Read it again. Look at all the things you do not want that you're telling me about. And I can tell you're very passionate about this. When you focus on something with a lot of passion, it makes it happen even faster.' And then he really started taking this thing about focusing on what you want to heart. And he began really trying it.


What happened within the next 6 - 8 weeks was absolutely a miracle. He said that all the people in his office that had been harassing him either transferred to another department, quit working at the company, or started totally leaving him alone. And he began to love his job. He noticed that when he was walking down the street, that nobody came up to him and harassed him anymore. They just weren't there. When he went and did his stand-up comedy routines he started getting standing ovations, and nobody was heckling him. His whole life changed, because he changed from focusing on what he did not want, what he was afraid of, what he wanted to avoid, to focusing on what he did want.

So we may be very positive in our outlook and orientation, and we tend to attract positive people and positive events and circumstances. When we're very negative in our orientation, or very angry, in which case we tend to attract negative angry people and negative angry circumstances. And so you end up attracting to you the predominant thoughts that you're holding in your awareness, whether those thoughts are conscious or whether they're unconscious.

That's the rub.

If you look very carefully when it comes to The Secret and the power of our mind and the power of our intention in our daily lives, its all around us. All we gotta do is open our eyes and look. You can see law of attraction everywhere. You draw everything to yourself. The people, the job, the circumstances, the health, the wealth the debt, the joy, the car that you drive, the community that you're in. And you've drawn them all to you, like a magnet.

What you think about you bring about. Your life is a physical manifestation of the thoughts that go on in your head. I mean, I'm not talking to you from the point of view of just wishful thinking, or imaginary craziness. I'm talking to you from a deeper, basic understanding. Quantum physics really begins to point to this discovery. It says that you can't have a universe without mind entering into it. That the mind is actually shaping the very thing that is being perceived.

Now if you don't understand it doesn't mean that you should reject it. You don't understand electricity probably. First of all no one even knows what electricity is, and yet you enjoy the benefits of it. Do you know how it works? I don't know how it works. But I do know this, that you can cook a man's dinner with electricity and you can also cook the man. People oftentimes, when they begin to understand the great Secret, become frightened of all these negative thoughts that they have.

Two things they need to be aware of.

One, it has been proven now scientifically that an affirmative thought ls hundreds of times more powerful than a negative thought. So that eliminates a degree of worry right there.

And the second thing is, that thank god there's a time delay, that all of your thoughts don't come true instantly. We'd be in trouble if they did. The time delay serves you. It allows you to reassess, think about what you want, and make a new choice.

So you want to become aware of your thoughts and you want to choose your thoughts carefully.

And you want to have fun with this, because you are the masterpiece of your own life. You are the Michelangelo of your own life. The David that you are sculpting is you. And you do it with your thoughts.
