Sorry about that Jameson. I suppose it does illustrate that nobody is exempt from falling into the trap of of subjective conclusions. Since it was apparently featured on Oprah a few years ago and somehow is still big in "the Pop World" and I find it particularly slimy and offensive, I did fall prey to the assumption that everyone is painfully aware of that despicable book and concept/psychological garbage. It's one of those things that, on the surface, seems reasonable enough, but underneath the implications are horrendous and irresponsible at best.

One might be suspicious of such an overblown, egotistical title, The Secret, as if the author is above everyone having possession of the One True Gem of Wisdom, one that if everyone just hopped onboard the World would be magically transformed into this beautiful and righteous place like Heaven On Earth. As always the old adage seems true, "Everybody wants to go to Heaven but nobody wants to die".
