Read Rhonda Byrne’s personal account of her journey of discovery from The Secret to The Greatest Secret.
Before The Secret was released, I had no doubt that it would sweep the world and change people’s lives, not only because I had visualized it, but because I knew that when people discovered the power they have to create their lives the way they want them, both their lives and The Secret had to take off.
BEYOND THE SECRET
After The Secret came out, my own life changed in every possible way, and it changed because I had changed my thinking. I became very aware of my thoughts and deliberately focused on positive thoughts and not negative ones. As a result, my health, finances, relationships, work, and every single aspect of my life improved so dramatically that my life was no longer recognizable from what it had been. And my life has continued that way ever since. Spiritually I feel a strong sense of peace that is with me day and night. I have what many people would call a dream life, whereas prior to The Secret I had moments of happiness, but I also had plenty of struggle, stress, worry, and anxiety.
A NEW DISCOVERY
Having uncovered the truth about the power of our mind, which is the essence of The Secret, I knew there must be more truth to discover, and so I set out on a search that ended up spanning 14 years. I was relentless, searching seven days a week, day and night. And what is strange is that I didn’t know what I was searching for, other than for more of the truth.
My journey of discovery began with studying the teachings of an ancient tradition in Europe, the Rose Cross order, and I studied their profound teachings for many years. I also spent some time studying Buddhism, the many works of the Christian mystics, theology, Hinduism, Taoism, and Sufism. After I studied the ancient traditions and their historical teachings, my search turned back toward the present time, and I started following recent teachers like J. Krishnamurti, Robert Adams, Lester Levenson, and Ramana Maharshi, as well as some teachers still living today.
I discovered many incredible things largely unknown to people over the years, but none of those things made me feel that I had found what I was looking for. I honestly thought that I would be searching for the rest of my life!
After ten years of searching, a challenging situation arose in my life that caused me to feel deep disappointment. I was surprised by the depth of negative emotion that I felt. How could I feel so bad when I usually felt so good? But that disappointing situation was to become the greatest gift in my search for the truth. For it was this feeling of disappointment that led directly to my crossing paths with fellow truth-seeker David Bingham. In conversation with David, he pointed me in the direction of a truth so monumental that it ended my search instantly. It is the greatest discovery any human being can make. What I discovered is The Greatest Secret.
I spent the next four years researching teachers, scientists, and philosophers from around the world, past and present, each one of which played a huge role in my journey of discovery. At the same time, I practiced and lived what I had come to know so I would be able to share it with the world in the simplest way possible.
THE END OF A 14-YEAR JOURNEY
You could say that The Greatest Secret is my entire 14-year journey from The Secret to now, and contained in this one book are the revelations, words of wisdom, and practices I discovered along the way that changed my life forever.
There are most certainly huge revelations contained in its pages, but also there are simple, life-changing “no fail” practices. The Greatest Secret is without a doubt the most important book I’ve written since The Secret. It will take people out of the suffering caused by negative thoughts and feelings, and into a happiness and joy you can scarcely imagine.
THE GREATEST DISCOVERY
The Secret book shows you how to create anything you want to be, do, or have. Nothing has changed – it is as true today as it ever was. However, The Greatest Secret reveals the greatest discovery a human being can ever make. It shows you how to be free of negative thoughts and negative feelings forever, so that we can live our lives in the true happiness that is our very nature. The only thing that is covering up our innate happiness is negative thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, and once we are free of them, happiness will take over our life.
Recently, many people have discovered how easily their sense of safety and security can be shattered when something comes along that we didn’t expect, but I can promise you that it’s possible for us to live our lives in complete safety and security that can never be threatened by anything that happens in the world.
THE TRUTH IS NOT WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TOLD
The Greatest Secret shows us that life works in exactly the opposite way from the way we’ve been told and taught. We’re taught to fight what we don’t want, to judge and condemn what is ‘bad’, and to fear the unknown. But when you know the truth, you will know that there is nothing to fear.
The Greatest Secret reveals the truth about us and the truth behind our world. It shows us the way out of all suffering and into lasting happiness. It will free people permanently from negative thoughts and feelings, unworthiness, anxiety, stress, worry, uncertainty, and doubt, and most of all it will free people from fear. In their place will be a level of happiness and joy that most people have never felt before.
Imagine having that kind of life! It simply doesn’t get any better than this.
May the joy be with you for all eternity,
