What is the "Secret"?

The Secret seems to be the buzz on the net, and of course, is filtrating many of the New Agey areas but that really doesn't surprise me. There is nothing "New Age" about it, it's a Universal Law, which has been in operation since the beginning of time, which also puzzles me why they call it the "Secret"! Where can it be found? In just about any ancient scripture known to man, irregardless of the faith. You don't have to be a Protestant, Jew, Catholic to understand it, it's taught in Buddhist thought, Protestantism/Catholicism (in so many edited words),
Jesus came to teach it, and they killed him for it. Nobody wanted to hear about forgiveness, love, charity, hope, because mankind has always been hell-bent on hatred, war, killing, greed, avarice and animosity. Sad, that over the course of decades...centuries, the lesson has yet to be learned. The following was sent to me, through a network. It basically sums up the essence of the "Secret" better known as the "Law Of Attraction".

There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. A person can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. In order to do this, a person must pass fromthe competitive to the creative mind. Otherwise he cannot be in harmony with formless intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit. A person may come into full harmony withthe formless substance by
entertaining a livelyand sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestowsupon him.
Gratitude unifies the minds of individualswith the intelligence of substance,
so that a person's thoughts are received by the formless.

A person can remain upon the creative planeonly by uniting himself with the formless intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude. A person must form a clear and definitemental image of the things he wishes to have, todo, or to become, and he must hold this mental image in his thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the supreme that all his desires are granted to him.

The person who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his vision, and in earnest thanksgiving thatthe reality is being given to him. Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwavering faith and devout gratitude.

This is the process by which the impression is given to the formless and the creative forces set in motion. The creative energy works through the established channels of natural growth, and of the industrialand social order.

All that is included in his mental image will surely be brought to theperson who follows the instructions given above,and whose faith does not waver. What he wantswill come to him through the ways of established trade and commerce.In order to receive his own when it is ready to come to him, a person must be in action in way that causes him to more than fill his present place. He must keep in mind the purpose to getrich through realization of his mental image.

And he must do, every day, all that can be done thatday, taking care to do each act in a successfulmanner.He must give to every person a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so that eachtransaction makes for more life, and he must hold the advancing thought so that the impression ofincrease will be communicated to all
with whom he comes into contact.The men and women who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get rich, and theriches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.
