[first lines]
Rhonda Byrne: A year ago, my life had collapsed around me. I'd worked myself into exhaustion. My father died suddenly, and my relationships were in turmoil. Little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest gift. I'd been given a glimpse of a great Secret.

Read between the lines rather than take everything said at face value

Unsurprisingly many are those who can find this documentary as some attempt to brainwash or involve you in some kind of cult following so to speak. Meanwhile this documentary has changed many people's lives no doubt.

I do not usually comment on films I watch but I could not resist doing so on this one because I feel many are missing the point.

Personally I do not believe that simply by thinking positive you are having some 'magnetic' effect within the universe to attract exactly what you want in a spiritual or superstitious or scientific manner.

The underlying truth in my opinion is that negative thoughts will attract negative actions/reactions, whilst positive thoughts will enhance positive actions/reactions. Those of you out there complaining that you don't have enough opportunities to make your life or career any better should wipe out all these negative thoughts and should begin to think positive. Once you have a positive outlook you will then be able to 'see' all the opportunities out there that exist for you and which have not been noticing. And then you can grab those that fit your goal.

The documentary presents the above in a more sensational way by claiming that positive thoughts WILL, almost by some form of electromagnetic waves, attract positive things into your life. Well for those of you who are not superstitious or who are not into some scientology stuff, this is if anything stressing the importance of wiping out all negative thoughts and expectations which will hurt your ability to recognise positive opportunities and to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Of course this does not mean you should be so positive to the extent of not being cautious. You can't leave your bicycle unlocked on the street in Amsterdam simply because the documentary seems to suggests so. What the documentary is really trying to do is yes..brainwashing you..but not in a way to make you selfish, egocentric or start acting in a irresponsable manner as though crime did not exist around you, but in a way to ERADICATE those negative thoughts which inhibit your ability to recognize your opportunities or which are bad enough to effect your health.

The documentary is being truthful in suggesting that the mind controls the body and yes to a great extent the mind controls the healing of the body. It is all about the power of the sub-conscious.

Those of you who are very religious or who believe in faith-heeling will find this hard to believe of course!
