The Secret has helped many people become aware of how they can use the Law of Attraction consciously to create what they desire in their lives, but there is still a bigger secret people aren't getting; one that has the potential to change the world and the way we interact with each other in it.
This Big Secret is touched on quickly near the end of the movie, but no one says it so matter of factly as Rhonda does in her book of the same title. All the things that point to this bigger secret are shared by the teachers in The Secret, but none of them actually make the bold statement she does. Even Neale Donald Walsch, an author who has written several books on this big secret, didn't even say it in the movie.
So let's review some of the things the teachers in The Secret did say that lead up to this BIG secret...
John Assaraf: "Everything is made up of the exact same thing, whether it's your hand, the ocean, or a star. We're all connected. We just don't see it. Everything in the Universe is connected. It is just one energy field."
James Ray: "Energy can never be created or destroyed. It always was, always has been, and moves into form, through form, and out of form. So if you think you're just this meat suit running around, think again. You're an energy field operating in a larger energy field."
Rhonda Byrne: "Whichever way you look at it, the result is still the same. We are One. We are all connected, and we are all part of the One Energy Field. Call it whatever you want, but we are all One."
So this brings us to the Big Secret of Life. Since We are One and are all connected, then we are not just a part of Life. We are Life itself. Everything is energy, we are energy, and we are one energy together. You can give this great infinite and eternal energy many names, but the fact remains that we are not separate from it. We are It. There is only One of us, and collectively we experience ourselves through Life and all its unigue and individual expressions of creation.
Michael Bernard Beckwith: "Scripturally we could say that we are the image and likeness of God. We could say we are another way that the Universe is becoming conscious of itself. We could say that we are the infinite field of unfolding possibility. And all of that would be true."
Simply put, the Big secret is that We are God... being God... through God... as God... in God... and for God. We are God expressing Godself. You are God, they are God, everything around you is God. The trees, the earth, the sky, the stars, our children, the animals... all God. The food you eat, the songs you hear, the books you read, the strangers you meet... all God. The person looking back at you in the mirror, the mirror, the light, the shadows... all God. Your friends, your enemies, your family, your coworkers... all God.
There is only One of us. What you do unto others, you do unto yourself. Everyone in your life is a reflection of you. Hurt others, and you just hurt yourself. Love others, and you love yourself. This is the great secret of life. Understand and live from this knowing of Who We Really Are, and you can be, do, and have anything you desire because you have the same power of God to create your life as you choose.
Neale Donald Walsch: "There is no blackboard in the sky on which God has written your purpose or your mission in life. Your purpose is what you say it is. Your mission is the mission you give yourself. Your life will be what you create it as."
(A side note: I highly recommend Neale's "Conversations with God" book series. I read "Book 1" over ten years ago, and it was like a breath of fresh air saying all the things I knew deep down but never could put into words. It is the clearest communication I have ever read on the subject of God and Who We Really Are.)
