There seems to be a lot of people catching on to "The Secret" as well as other "Laws of Attraction" books/teachings. The concept in and of itself does not on the surface seem wrong, but being that there is no mention of the power of God or mention of blessings, Jesus, etc. makes me want to run. It's hard to argue though with the power of positive thinking - it is true, if you are thankful that you woke up and look forward to a good day and aren't frustrated by the traffic, people cutting you off, long lines, etc. then you "made" it a good day. We all have the choice on how to react to every situation - so does it mean when a deal cancels, I get a ticket or the kids mess up in school I caused it to happen - I guess that's the other problem I'm having with it. Anyway, know it's a long question, just wondering your take on it. Thank you - and God Bless all ofyou!
