My Miracle DVD
When I got introduced to The secret a few weeks ago, I had no inkling that I’d be writing a contribution so soon. When I was growing up, I dreamed of an amazing life of excitement, fun and accomplishment. Not to sound self indulgent, this seemed so certain considering that most people regarded me as charming, intelligent, and exceptionally gifted.
As time went by however, my hopes became dashed one after the other, and life became one grim cycle of disappointments and defeats. Slowly, imperceptibly, my cherished dreams faded behind a haze of pain and I was consigned to a mere spectator watching the good life happen to others. To cut a long story short, in the past few months, my work commissions ground to a halt, I slid into debt and my romantic relationship came crashing down. I was now dangerously tottering on the edge of desperation and despair. Life had dealt me a bad hand. As a last resort, I started browsing the web for motivational items just to keep my sanity.
That was when I stumbled upon the books of Rhonda Byrne. To be honest, I’ve been heavy on self help books during my long and sustained search for meaning and direction. A great many of the authors are well known to me but I’d never heard of Rhonda. What good would one more author do, I wondered. Yet I went ahead and downloaded The Secret.
It didn’t disappoint. It was one rapturous read. As I said earlier, I’ve read lots of motivational stuff but for the first time I saw clearly why all I read and practiced wasn’t working for me. Rhonda cut through all the needless stuff and presented a clear, simple and practical picture. Then, I learned that The Secret had a movie. I dearly wanted to see it. If you knew the part of the world where I live, you’d know how nearly impossible it is to see or buy such a DVD. So I decided to put to test the principles I had learned. The universe must figure a way to bring the DVD to me.
Then one bright Idea came to me. I had my good friend who traveled to London a few weeks earlier. He might be of help. So I fired off an email to him asking him to help me search for and buy the DVD. After he returned from London earlier in the week, he came visiting two days ago. I was glad to have him back and after small talk, I asked him if he got my email. I am sorry he said regrettably. He wasn’t able to read his emails during his last week in London. I hope it wasn’t for something serious? he tossed in. Not that much, I replied. It’s only that there is this stuff by a certain Rhonda … “Rhonda?” he cut in and after a short pause went ahead and spelled the rest of the name while I nodded in approval. I remember quite well now he continued. A friend of mine told me so much about her last year. He even gave me one of her materials, a DVD called The Secret. I tossed it into somewhere in my house since then. I will go presently and search for it.
The room was so quite you could hear a fly yawn. What was this? Coincidence? Serendipity? Synchronicity? Providence? You tell me. All I know was that in the next half hour, I had a copy of the secret DVD in my hands absolutely free.
Talk of a magical life. I believe itâs finally beginning to take off!
