You Create Reality

Blaming the Victim? or Secret Bashing?

ok, so I’ve seen my share of blogs lately bashing “The Secret” and the Law of Attraction in general for blaming the victims.

The authors of these blogs like to add large pictures of starving children, children digging through garbage in dumps, and so on, to make their point that The Law of Attraction is bull_it.

They also demand to know how the makers of “The Secret” can justify telling people that they create their reality. “What about these kids?”. There is the thought out there that it is irresponsible to tell people they can have whatever they want, when there are so many victims living tragedy and scarcity.

Here is a quote from a post over at FantasticPlanet:

“This movie just pisses me off because it’s more of that insidious blame-the-victim garbage the Archons like to trap people into. I deal with terminally ill cancer patients all day long, and jerkoffs like Byrne would have people believe that this disease they’re going through can just be wished away? Or, indeed, that these miraculous “Laws of Attraction” should be used to get cars and money???”

Let’s just stop a second. Let’s think about this.

I understand the logic they state, because it is logic based on their BELIEF and perception that LIFE just happens to us. That belief is a belief in powerlessness, because without powerlessness, there are no victims anywhere in this world.

It is the belief that we have no choice in our destiny.

Yes, there are sad and horrible things that happen to people every single day.

As someone who believes in the Law of Attraction, I must take just a second here and ask, how is my belief that I create MY reality causing or reinforcing these sad and horrible things which others perceive as reality? I am certainly not blaming anyone for anything, and that is the point of The Law of Attraction. It is me saying, only for me, that I am not a victim of life, I am the creator of my life. To somehow make that into something far different, that I am now the perpetrator of autrocities against starving children, and the “Victims” of life, is …..crap. Perhaps, these same accusers feel guilty for what they have which other less fortunate people do not? I am sorry, but I will not allow anyone make me feel WRONG or GUILTY for taking responsibility for my life & reality, nor for holding a belief that I can have, do, or be - anything I desire.

These blogs are asking, “How can you tell someone they can have a shiny new car” just by having happy thoughts when there are children starving to death? Why aren’t you teaching people to focus thought on food for every child, for world peace, for love and forgiveness? Why is it just about the shiny new car, or the big house, or the million dollars?

Good questions. I’d like to know that too.

You see, ultimately, the Law of Attraction must be used for greater good. Eventually, when enough people hold a true belief in their power to create and define their reality, they will focus on creating an end to world hunger, on abundance for everyone, on wellness for all, on love, on peace throughout the world, and healing of all that is offensive to our understanding and our evolution.

Why is the focus of “The Secret” just about having THINGS and RELATIONSHIPs?

Honestly, my opinion is that if were just about creating a better world, a better future, or evolving - not so many people would be interested. Unfortunately, mankind is driven by EGO, and on focusing on the nonessential. It is true.

Perhaps this is just a small step, a beginning if you will, a slight advance against mankinds ego-driven mind.

In the ‘One step at a time’ tradition, perhaps in the near future the focus will be on all of these higher thoughts and visions, rather than material gain. It is baby-steps perhaps, but it is progress.

Maybe for the makers of “The Secret” this is but a first step towards a grander vision.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
