Psst...

Oprah had a show about "The Secret", a book and movie by an Australian TV producer about how to attract your desires. I guess I missed the first show, because what I saw was a follow-up. There were a couple of guys, plus Oprah, congratulating each other on how spiritual acquisitiveness can be.

One fearful audience member wanted to make sure their world-view allowed for a judgmental God. The guest with the ponytail assured her he was being sufficiently Christ-like, but judging was for sissies, and not something for Creators like himself to be concerned about.

I guess "The Secret" is this year's "Da Vinci Code" or "Celestine Prophecy". The "Law of Attraction" says "like attracts like", the opposite of magnetism I guess. It's based on a nearly 100-year-old book about getting rich. Kind of like "The Da Vinci Code" was based on "Holy Blood Holy Grail".

One of the "experts" featured in the movie is John Gray, author of the "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" books. You remember him: he's the relationship guru who's divorced from Barbara DeAngelis, another relationship guru.

Anyway, enjoy "The Secret": strong enough for God, but made for Man.
