Default Re: the secret + the law of attraction

I just heard about The Secret and I think it's utter bullsh*t. It often advocates blaming the victim for everything that goes wrong in his/her life.

Obviously if you try to think positive thoughts you will interpret things in a positive light and therefore be happier and more optimistic. People want to be around happy and optimistic people and tend to trust them more, etc. Likewise if you constantly dwell on the negative you will find flaws in everything and probably get mildly depressed.

The problem comes in when it is suggested that bad things happen to people with bad thoughts and good things happen to people with good thoughts. This just isn't true. Bad things happen and good things happen, it's all how you deal with the highs and lows.
