The Universe does respond.
On Wednesday July 11.2007 while looking for a movie to watch on the DVD player, I suddenly remembered a dvd of The Secret segment of the Oprah Winfrey Show that a friend had loaned me. After several attempts to play the dvd and see just what The Secret was all about, the dvd player would not read the disc. I was a little disappointed, but soon forgot about it as the day progressed. Two days later I received a phone call from my local public library informing me that the book The Secret that I had been on a waiting list for 2 months for was now available for me to pick up at my convenience. I immediately went to the library and picked it up, and spent all day reading it. Now I know that all of the good “coincidences” in my life and the bad ones were a result of my own thoughts! I want to thank the Universe for responding!
