Understanding Differs From Knowing
I am a simple girl who lived a life mysteriously only until I came to know about the Secret. I say “mysteriously” because the imaginations or ideas that came in my life usually used to come true, and I was always just amazed about it not knowing why it was happening to me.
Like one day I was on a motorcycle with my Mom and was thinking about the incident that happened to my cousin, when her knee bumped into a taxi headlights. And a sudden thought came to my mind that this kind of transportation is in fact dangerous, and “what if” it happened to me… And the next thing I knew, BANG! My knees bumped into the taxi door as the driver carelessly opened the door without noticing us coming from behind.
And one morning I woke up and went to the bathroom and did my thing, and as I was doing it I saw a hole at the corner. I thought probably cockroaches were living there and again a sudden thought just came… “what if” all of them started coming out, and the house would be full of it… eww! I know it’s nasty but the thought of it just came. And so I went back to bed and when I woke up at 5 that morning, there they were… flying everywhere coming out from nowhere.
I had many incidents like that, and I noticed that they often came true whenever I used the words, “what if”.
Before I came to know about the Secret, I was actually already using it not knowing that it is the Secret as you guys have titled it. When I was a kid I used to have social problems. I was very shy to go play with other kids of my age at that time. I was usually alone even though I didn’t want to be. I remember that one day my friends (I thought they were) intentionally left me alone, and I came to know that they didn’t want me in their group. I was in grade 3 by then. So I was there crying alone on the playground, and starting that day I guess I had the passion to make real friends, and I always thought about it. Today people see me as an easy going person. I didn’t even realized that I had become one until one of my friends in highschool told me that I was easy and fun to go with. I was and am surprised at my own change and proud of it. I am not the shy type now, but a “go for it” type of a girl.
Another incident was just a few years ago. Everyone I know thought and saw me as a beautiful lady, and I knew for myself that I was only if I didn’t have my imperfections. I was so sad about it that it bothered me often in a day. And when I started thinking about it a lot I noticed that people around me started to notice the same. I became more sad about it, and people noticed my imperfections more. Then one day I went to a dermatologist and asked for a treatment. But she and my Mom didn’t actually agree on it. She said that it was OK and there was nothing to bother about and that I was beautiful, and she wasn’t saying that to make me feel lighter, she was saying that because I truly was beautiful. And she said that I must not bother much of what others say, because that is what people do and will continuously do because it’s just like their bad habit. She is one of the greatest inspirations of my life. And from that day on I believed in her and I believed that I am made by God so everything made by God is perfect and has its own reason behind. I started to think that I am truly beautiful and everyone around me is also beautiful, no matter in what shape they are. And believe me or not people started to say that to me. I even started to see some people smile at me when I passed by them. And I figured out for myself that “IT IS ALL IN OUR MINDS”. That’s what I said to myself all the time. And a few weeks later “The Secret” came into my life. My dentist introduced the book to me and I started reading it and even watched the documentary movie. And that’s when I found out that the things happening in my life are not just mysteries – but it is a LAW.
