My Rating: (★★★) I borrowed The Secret by Rhonda Byrne from the library, even though I own a copy of it …somewhere. I’ve owned it for years and had never read it. Now that I have read it, I feel reminded that positive thoughts attract more positive thoughts and vice versa with negative thoughts. The thing is.. is that I’ve always thought this.
The Secret did not really teach me anything new; the lesson is the same that I learned in high school when I went to a Unity church. Only there it was in the form of Affirm It, Believe It, Be It. Instead of The Secret’s Ask, Believe, Receive. In any case it was a good refresher and a positive influence because it’s easy to get bogged down in the negative.
The Secret gets a little repetitive in it’s rhetoric, but at least it drills home it’s point. It’s definitely a positive book and mostly an easy and short read. I’m glad I finally read it.
