“How does one become a butterfly” she asked pensively
“You must want to fly so much you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”
“You mean die?”
“Yes and no,” he answered. “What looks like you will die, but what’s really you will still  live”
—–From Hope For The Flowers

Change is a difficult thing. Sometimes, when we decide to change ourselves, our beliefs, and our lives, it feels as though a part of us is dying. So it must be, as we leave the past behind us and set out on a new course and embrace the “Now”.

It is inevitable when we choose to let go, that we feel as though we are losing ourselves, losing site of who we “ARE”, yet we are not. We are simply letting go of who we used to be, and doing so, we free ourselves to embrace the endless possibilities of “NOW”.

The only way to free ourselves is to die to ourselves. It is part of the metamorphosis, part of the beautiful awakening.

Discovering this empowering secret, this secret that YOU create your reality,  this truth that the entirety of your life experience is of your own choosing,  is like being given a beautiful set of wings and the gift of flight.  We are no longer held back by our old beliefs in  victimization and powerlessness – we are free to fly.

Take up your wings and fly with me.

I caught Bill Maher on Friday night. I heard his rant about “The Secret” and his opinion that it was just wishful thinking and blaming the victim’s of life. He was joined in his tirade by Rosanne Barr and Deepak Chopra. Now, Barr I can understand – but Deepak? I would have thought he would have exhibited a bit more of a positive attitude about “The Secret”.

I think that the biggest problem I have with the Secret-basher’s is this: They dismiss the entire concept of the Law of Attraction because of all the “Poor Victims” in the world. The existence of victims, to the bashers, is all the evidence they require that the Law of Attraction is nonsense.

Here is the thing, There are no victims!!! It is this entire concept of “Victimization” which has throughout time, created the ugliness we see in the world.

Every time some comedian/celebrity slash wannabe-spiritualist decides to impart their “Wisdom” in this arena, it just blows my mind how Ego driven their entire philosophies are. See the thing is, if there aren’t any victims, Maher is out of work – nothing to complain about, nobody to blame, and really, that is what he gets paid to do. Maher and the entire media, get paid to focus on the “Wrong” or “Bad” things, to draw all of our attention to it, to complain endlessly, and to find someone to blame – so we can focus our anger, frustrations, and hate towards these “Wrong” and “Bad” people.

Telling people about the Law of Attraction isn’t teaching them wishful thinking. The power to transform the world, the power to truly change everything begins within each of us. The Mind is the source of transformation. The first step in overcoming is always to change the way you think about the problem.

Here is one of societies favorite quotes:

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.”

This is what the entire process of revealing the Secret is, it is to teach people how to see differently. To teach someone that they are NOT a victim – to teach them that they alone get to choose the life they will experience, that is powerful stuff. Much more powerful than handing them a couple twenties and turning away!

When people stop believing that other people have the power to control their destiny, and that they alone can create the life they desire – WOW, then the world will transform.

Well, I watched the special last night on the Discovery Channel. I must say, it was an interesting show, but I really wasn’t left with an opinion one way or the other.

Of course, I don’t hold a strong need to have the reality be one way or another. It makes no difference to me whether Jesus of Nazereth was buried in that tomb or not. Likewise, I have no investment or need for him to be unmarried and childless.

There will never be any way to prove the assertion that his tomb and bones were found, just as it will be impossible to prove it wasn’t him.

All in all, I found it interesting – but ultimately it had no impact on what I think or believe.

how about you? did you watch? what is your opinion?
