Truth is, The Secret is a reprehensible piece of newage schlock that latches onto greed and commercialism and exploits it for all it’s worth. That’s what it is, no two ways about it. It is not just an extended, expensive homily on the power of goal-setting and accomplishment. It makes definite testable statements and claims about universal metaphysics, none of which make any sense at all. It doesn’t require you to work for any of the things you want, just to want them bad enough.
