A Book that's good to read

The Secret
by Rhonda Byrne
2006, Atria Books
available at MPH Bookstore
RM79.90

This is a good book to read.

The Secret unveils the knowledge of ourselves and how we could understand the hidden, untapped power within us.

The Secret contained wisdom from teachers such as Bob Proctor, Dr Joe Vitale, John Assaraf, Dr John Demartini, Dr Denis Waitley, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Lee Brower, Marie Diamond, Mike Dooley, Bob Doyle, Hale Dwoskin, Morris Goodman, Dr John Hagelin, Bill Harris, Dr Ben Johnson, Loral Langemeier, Lisa Nichols, James Ray, David Schirmer, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr Fred Alan Wolf, Dr John Gray and Jack Canfield.

The Secret is about the law of attraction. Everything that's coming into our life we are attracting into our life. And it's attracted to us by virtue of the images we're holding in our mind. It's what we're thinking. Whatever is going on in our mind we are attracting to us.

Go and get one of this book at the bookstore. it is value for money. But I prefer the DVD copy which is also available at MPH; however, the DVD could cost around RM130.

This book was introduced to me by my student from CatLand. Watch the DVD!

It's an excellent DVD. How much we can benefit from it will depend on the person using it. It teaches us to focus positively and with optimism.

It works to me. And the DVD can be downloaded online with a little afford of online searching and sniffing.

I think you should look at the criticism levelled against it as well. Have a look at this:

Khensthoth,

Thanks for the video link. It's about yourself and your inwards attitude. And it's entirely up to yourself to accept or reject the law of attraction. However, it is a philosophy and it include some metaphysics.

BN Sarawak Yakin Tiada Anggota Akan Sertai Pakatan Rakyat
KUCHING, 4 Sept (Bernama) — Empat parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN) Sarawak berkeyakinan bahawa tidak ada daripada kalangan Anggota Parlimen mereka yang berkemungkinan menyertai Pakatan Rakyat pada 16 Sept ini kerana mereka tidak akan “menukar prinsip demi keuntungan jangka pendek”.

Presiden Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Datuk Seri Dr James Masing hari ini berkata pembangkang, terutamanya Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), tersilap jika mereka menyangkakan Anggota Parlimen BN boleh dibeli supaya meninggalkan gagasan itu bagi membentuk kerajaan baru yang diketuai oleh Penasihat PKR Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

“Ia (pembelotan) tidak mungkin belaku. Saya telah bercakap dengan kesemua enam Anggota Parlimen daripada PRS, iaitu wakil rakyat yang mempunyai prinsip dan tidak akan menukar prinsip demi keuntungan jangka pendek,” kata Dr Masing, yang juga Menteri Pembangunan Tanah Sarawak, kepada Bernama di sini.

“Bagi PRS, kami tidak akan bergerak ke mana-mana. Kami bergerak bersama-sama Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, yang juga Pengerusi BN pusat,” katanya sambil menambah pembangkang perlu menghormati keputusan yang dibuat oleh pengundi pada pilihan raya umum 8 Mac.

Beliau berkata Anwar, yang sebelum ini mendakwa akan menjadi Perdana Menteri menjelang 16 Sept, perlu menghormati mandat itu sama seperti kemenangannya dalam pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh pada 26 Ogos yang dihormati oleh BN.

Sementara itu Timbalan Presiden Parti Demokratik Progresif Sarawak (SPDP) Datuk Peter Nyarok berkata parti itu, termasuk empat Anggota Parlimennya, telah mengikrarkan sokongan mereka kepada BN yang dipimpin Abdullah di peringkat persekutuan dan Ketua Menteri Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, selaku Pengerusi BN negeri.

“Tidak timbul persoalan mengenainya (melompat parti). Kami tidak menyokong Anwar dan kami tidak akan melompat parti walau dengan apa cara sekalipun,” katanya kepada Bernama, sambil menambah SPDP menyokong teguh BN, yang memenangi 30 daripada 31 kerusi Parlimen di Sarawak dalam pilihan raya lepas.

Ditanya sama ada dakwaan seperti itu mungkin berlaku, Presiden Parti Rakyat Bersatu Sarawak (SUPP) Tan Sri Dr George Chan berkata semua orang ada impian.

“Semua orang ada impian. Saya ada impian. Beliau (Anwar) ada impian. Perkara itu tidak mungkin,” kata Dr Chan, yang juga Timbalan Ketua Menteri.

SUPP, rakan kedua terbesar BN Sarawak, memenangi enam kerusi Parlimen tetapi kalah kerusi Bandar Kuching dalam pilihan raya umum baru-baru ini.

Timbalan Presiden Parti Pesaka Bumiputera (PBB) iaitu tunjang BN Sarawak, Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman berkata beliau yakin kesemua 14 Anggota Parlimen PBB dan 35 Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri akan kekal setia kepada BN.

“Saya pasti anggota PBB sama ada di peringkat Parlimen mahupun Dewan Undangan Negeri masih kekal setia kepada BN dan kalau ada khabar angin yang mengatakan 40 Anggota Parlimen BN akan sertai Pakatan Rakyat, itu tidak betul,” kata Daud, yang juga Menteri Muda Sarawak yang bertanggungjawab dalam Hal Ehwal Islam.

Sementara itu, Ketua Pemuda PBB Fadillah Yusof, yang juga Anggota Parlimen Petra Jaya, berkata langkah Pakatan Rakyat untuk memujuk Anggota Parlimen BN supaya menyertai pembangkang adalah bukti bahawa mereka tidak berpegang kepada prinsip mereka sendiri berhubung hak rakyat.

“Walaupun BN tidak mendapat majoriti dua pertiga namun keputusan rakyat tetap kepada BN dan kemenangan daripada rakyat ini seharusnya dihormati dan bukannya berjuang untuk kepentingan individu,” katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama.

I downloaded the video early last year when I heard so many people talk about it.

I wouldn't say it's a life-defining video (or book) but I do agree that it gives us a new perspective to look at life and the way things work.

And lastly, some self-answers:
No, I've not bought the book, sorry.
Yes, it can still be downloaded. I don't advocate piracy but times ARE tough, sorry.
