The secret means for me actually that we are creators of our Universe.

And that every wish of what we want to create will manifest in our life. Therefore, it's very important what you wish, what your thoughts are, what your feelings are because it will manifest.

Now, one day I went into somebody's home and he was art director of a very famous film producer. And in every corner he had this beautiful image of a woman, a naked woman dressed with the fabric kind of doing this, kind of saying, "I don't look at you, I don't see you" And I said, "I think you have trouble in your romance."

"Are you a clairvoyant or something?"

"No, but look, in seven places you have exactly that woman.""But I love that kind of painting. I painted it myself."

"That's even worse", I said, "because you put all your creation and your creativity in it."

Now, this is a gorgeous looking man, he has all these actresses around him because that's the work he does, and he doesn't get romance. I said, "what do you want?"

"Well, I wanna date three women a week."

"OK, paint yourself with three women and hang it in every corner."

Six months later I see him in Europe. I said, "how is your love life?"

"Great! They just call me, they all wanna date me.""Because that's your wish.""Now I have like three dates a week. They're fighting over me."

"Good on you."

"But I really wanna stabilize it a little bit. I want marriage, and I want romance."

"Well paint it." So he painted a beautiful romantic relationship.

And a year later he got married. He was very happy. Because he put another wish out but he wished it himself for years.

But it did not happen, because his wish could not manifest because the outer level of himself (his house), was just contradicting himself all the time. So, if you know this knowledge, you should start playing with it.

Inside relationships it's important to first understand who's coming into the relationship. And I don't mean about your partner, I mean about you. How can you ever expect anyone else to enjoy your company if you don't enjoy your own company?

And so again, the Law of Attraction, or the secret is about bringing that into your life and you've gotta get really, really clear.

Here's the question I want to ask you to consider: do you treat yourself the way that
you want other people to treat you?

You become the solution for you. Don't like, "now you own me, and you need to get me more", instead give more to yourself. Take time off to give to yourself.

And in the sense, you feel yourself up to fullness, where now you can overflow and give it.I got into many relationships, expecting my partner to show me my beauty.

I needed to see him showing me my beauty. Because I didn't feel beautiful. Because when I was growing up, my "sheroes" were Charlie's Angels, Wonder Woman, and though they were wonderful women none of them looked like me. It wasn't until I stopped and I fell in love with Lisa, full lips, round hips, mocha skin, Afro, that the rest of the world began to fall in love with Lisa.

There's something so magnificent about you.I have been studying me for 44 years. I wanna kiss myself! Because, you're gonna get to love yourself. I'm not talking about conceit. I'm talking about a healthy respect for yourself. And as you love yourself, you'll love others. Sometimes people will say, "those people at work are so negative", or, "the man I live with is so angry", or, "my children are so worrisome to me", and we say, "you must orient yourself to the best part of those people who surround you."

We encourage that you get a notebook, and that you make a list of the positive aspects of the people that you spend a lot of time with.

There could be someone that you have a terrible experience with, a terrible relationship with. And in the privacy of your own mind, and with quite a bit of work, we will admit, as you focus upon things that you like most those people will become that mostly to you And even though you cannot create in their reality, if they are in the mood or in attitude that doesn't match the mood or attitude that you have about them, they'll zig while you zag.

Law of Attraction will not put you in the same space together, you frequencies don't match up. If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good.

You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world or control your mate or control your child. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you. Every bit of it you.    


We noticed that there are so many people who are living life in a very conditional way, they look out and they see things that are wonderful and they say, "yes we want more of those, we would vote for that, we would support that with our time and energy and money."

But then they look out and they see things that they do not want, terrible things that they do no want to live and that they do not want to see others live. And they say, "we've got to do something about getting rid off those things."

But they don't realize that as they push against the unwanted they add power to it.

In this world, there is a war against poverty, and a war against cancer, and a war against teenage pregnancy, and a war against terrorism, and a war against violence, and a war against terrorism, did we mentioned that there was a war against terrorism...

And all of this pushing-against is only adding-to, Because, you can't say no and make it go away. When you shout no Law of Attraction is lining that up.

The reason that "what you resist, persists" is because that you're resisting something, you say, "no, I don’t want this thing because it makes me feel this way the way I'm feeling right now."

And so, you just putting out this really strong emotion of, "wow, I don't really like this feeling", and it's there, it's racing towards you.

You know, anti-war movement creates more war.

The anti-drug movement has actually created more drugs. Because we're focusing on what we don't want - drugs. People would say, "well shouldn't I focus upon that, that is true"

And we say, "that is like saying because someone gave the attention to something they did not want, long enough that now it has manifested I should do it too." And we say, "we don't really understand that reasoning."

Mother Teresa was brilliant. She said, "I will never attend an anti-war rally, if you have a peace rally, invite me." You know, she knew. She understood the secret.

I mean, look what she manifested in the world. So, if you're anti-war, be pro peace. If you're anti-hunger, be pro people having more than enough to eat. If you anti particular politician, be pro his opponent. Often elections are tipped in the favour of the person that people are really against because he's getting all the energy and all the focus. You wanna focus on what you want and not what you don't want.

It's OK to notice what you don't want because that gives you contrast and you say, "this is what I do want." But the fact is that the more you talk what you don't want, or you talk about how bad it is, read about all of that all the time and then say, "oh how terrible it is", you are creating more of that.

You know, so many times people say to me, "well James, I have to be informed." Maybe you have to be informed, but you don't have to be inundated.

Learn to become still and to take you attention away from what you don't want and all the emotional charge around it, and place the attention on what you wish to experience. I always say when the voice and the vision on the inside become more profound and more clear and loud then the opinion on the outside you've mastered your life.

You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you want it to be, you are here to create the world around you that you choose, while you allow the world as others choose it to be to exist also.

One of the questions I get almost all the time and is probably on somebody's mind right now, if it's not on yours, and that's the idea that, "well, if everybody uses the secret and they all treat the Universe like a catalogue, aren't we gonna run out of stuff?

Won't everybody just make a run for it and bust the bank?" What's so beautiful about the teaching of the great secret is that there is more than enough to go around for everyone.

There is a lie, that acts like a virus within the mind of humanity and that lie is, "there's not enough good to go around, there's lack, and there's limitation and there's just not enough." That lie has people living in fear, greed, stinginess, and those thoughts of fear, greed, stinginess and lack become their experience.

So, the world has taken a nightmare pill. Now, the truth is there's more than enough good to go around, there's more than enough reative ideas, there's more than enough power, there's more than enough love, there's more than enough joy...

All of this begins to come through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature.
Every great teacher who's ever walked the planet has told us that life was meant to be abundant. And so, just when we think that resources are dwindling, we find new resources to achieve the same things.

And so, even though we say we have lack it's because we don't open up our vision and see all what's around us. You know, when everybody starts to live from their heart and go for what they want, they don't go for the same things. That's the beauty of this.

We don't all want BMWs, we don't all want the same person, we don't all want the same experiences, we don't all want the same clothing, we don't all want...fill in the blank. There's enough for everyone.

If you believe it, if you can see it if you act from it - it will show up for you. That's the truth. So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you get to choose from among of those thing that you're wanting.

And when you see something that you want in your experience, think about it, find a feeling place of it get inside of it, talk about it and write it down, write a script about it, make it your reality by becoming a match to it.

And when you see those things that you are not wanting in your experience do not talk about them, don't write about them, don't join groups of worry about them, don't push against them.

Do your best to ignore them, remove your attention from the things that you do not want while you give your undivided attention to the things that you do want.

Most of the leaders in the past missed the great part of the secret, which is empowering and sharing with others.

This is the best time to have ever been alive in history. It's the first time we've ever had the power to gain knowledge at our fingertips. When we look around us, even at our own bodies, what we see is the tip of the iceberg. Think of this for a moment: take your hand and look at it.

Now your hand looks solid but it's really not.

If you put it under a proper microscope you'd see a mass of energy vibrating. Everything is made up of the exact same thing, whether it's your hand, whether it's the ocean or whether it's a star.

Everything is energy.

And let me help you understand that just a little bit. There is the Universe of course, and our galaxy, and our planet, and then individuals, and then inside of this a body, our organ systems, and then there are cells, and then there are molecules, and then there are atoms, and in there is energy.

So there are a lot of levels to talk about something on.

But everything in the Universe is energy. I don't care what city you're living in you've got enough power in your body, potential power, to illuminate the whole city for nearly a week.

Most people define themselves by this finite body. But you're not a finite body.
Even under a microscope there are energy fields. What we know about energy is this: you go to a quantum physicist and you say, "what creates the world?"

And he/she will say, "energy."

Well describe energy. It can never be created or destroyed, it's: always was, always has been, everything that ever existed, always exists, it's moving into form, through form and out of form.

OK, great. You go to a theologian and you ask the question, "what created the Universe?"

And he/she would say, "God."

OK, describe God.

Always was and always has been, never be can be created or destroyed all there ever was, always will be, always moving into form, through form and out of form. You see, it's the same description, just different terminology. And so, if you think you're this meat suit running around, think again.

You are spiritual being, you're energy field operating in a larger energy field.
We're all connected. We just don't see it. There isn't an "out-there" and "in-here".

Everything in Universe is connected, it's just one energy field.

You are extensions of source energy.

You're here in these magnificent bodies, but your bodies have distracted you for the most part, from who you really are. You are source energy. You are eternal beings, you are God force. You are that what you call God. Scripturally, we could say that we are the image and the lightness of God.

We could say we are another way that the Universe is becoming conscious of itself. We could say that we are the infinite field of unfolded possibilities. All that would be true.

Every great tradition has told you that you were created in the image and the lightness of the creative source. That means that you have got potential and power to create your world. And you are. You are.

And maybe you've created things to this point that are wonderful and worthy of you, and maybe you haven't. The question I'd ask you to consider is: do the results you have in you life - are they what you really want, and are they worthy of you?

If they're not worthy of you then wouldn't now be the right time to change this? Because you have the power to do that. You know, a lot of people feel like they're victims in life and they’ll often point at past events, perhaps growing up with an abusive parent or in a dysfunctional family.

And I would add that most psychologists believe that about 85% families are dysfunctional. So, it's like all of a sudden you're not so unique.

My parents were alcoholics, my dad abused me, my mother divorce him when I was 6 From the edge of 13 to 18 I was involved in street gangs.

I had a severe motorcycle accident. I was homeless at one point in Dallas, I lived in poverty for 15 years in Houston. When I was a child, I had learning difficulties, and I was considered learning disabled, and I was told I would never read, write or communicate, never amount to anything, not go very far in life.

That's almost everybody's story in some form or not. So, that's just called "so what". The real "what" is what are you going to do now, what do you choose now.

Because you can either keep focusing on that, or you can focus on what you want. And when people start focusing on what they want, what they don't want falls away.

And that part expands, and the other part disappears.

We are wanting you to come to the place where you're beginning to offer your thought deliberately where you're guiding your thought on purpose, where you are creator of your own experience, because you are the manager of your own thought.

The beautiful thing about the Law of Attraction is that you can begin where you are.

And you can begin to think real thinking, and you can begin to generate within yourself a feeling tone of harmony and happiness. The Law will begin to respond to that. So now you start to have different beliefs, like there is more than enough in the Universe, or you have the belief that everything goes right for me.
Or you have the belief that "I'm not getting older, I'm getting younger."

We can create it the way we want it by using the Law of Attraction.

And you can break yourself free from the hereditary patterns, cultural codes, social beliefs, and prove once and for all that the power within you is greater than the power that's in the world.

Some of you may be thinking, "well that's very nice, but I can't do that", or "she won't let me do that", or "he'll never let me do that", or "I haven't got enough money to do that", or "I'm not strong enough to do that", or "I'm not rich enough to do that", or "I'm not..." I'm not...I'm not...I'm not...I'm not...I'm not...

Every single "I'm not" is a creation.
Are there any limits to this?

Absolutely not. We are unlimited beings.


We have no ceiling. The capabilities and the talents and the gifts and the power that is within every single individual on this planet is unlimited. There is no blackboard in the sky on which God has written your purpose, your mission in life.

There's no blackboard in the sky that says Call him. and then there's a blank, you know, and all I have to do is to really understand what I'm doing here, why I'm here is to find that blackboard, and find out what God really has in mind for me.

But the blackboard doesn't exist.
So, your purpose is what you say it is.

Your mission is the mission you give yourself.

Your life will be what you create it as and no one will stand in judgment of it, now or ever.

It took a lot of years for me to get this, 'cause I grew up very much with this idea that you know, there was something I was supposed to do and if I wasn't doing it, I was like, "God wouldn't be happy with me".

What I really got that my primary aim is to feel and experience joy, then I began to do only those things which brought me joy, we have a saying, you know, "if it ain't fun, don't do it" Joy, love, freedom, happiness, laughter, that's what it is.

And if, boy, if you just experience joy sitting here and meditating for an hour, by golly, do that. If you experience joy eating a salami sandwich, then do that.

When I pet my cat I'm in a state of joy, or when i walk in nature I'm in a state of joy, so I wanna constantly put myself in that state. And when I do that, then all I have to do is have the intention of what I want, and what I want manifest.

So, inner happiness actually is the fuel of success.

Anything that makes you feel good is always gonna be drawing in more. You have received this right now, it's you that drew this into your life.

It's your choice whether you wanna take it and utilize it, if it feels good, if it doesn't feel good, then you know, let it go. Find something that feels good, that resonates with your heart.

Joseph Campbell said, "follow your bliss". We think those are the best words we've ever heard spoken from a human tongue. And if one could follow one's bliss, you would follow the trail to abundance and well-being on all subjects. Enjoy life with us, because life is phenomenal, it's a magnificent trip.

You will live in a different reality, a different life, when people will look at you and say, "what do you do different than me?", well, the only thing that is different is that you work with the secret.

And then you can do, and have, and be things that people will say, "it's impossible for you to do and have and be" We're really now moving into a new era. It's the era where the last frontier is not space, as "Star Trek" would say, but it's going to be - mind.

I see a future of unbounded potential, unbounded possibilities. Remember we're using at most 5% of the potential of the human mind.

100% human potential is the result of proper education, so imagine a world where people were using their full mental and emotional potential.

We could go anywhere, we could do anything, achieve anything.

See yourself with the good that you desire.

Every religious book tells us that. Every great book on philosophy, every great leader, all the avatars who have ever lived Go back and study the wise ones. Many of them have been presented to you in this programme.

You know what? They all understood one thing - they understood the secret. Now you understand it. And the more you use it, the more you'll understand it. You may be feeling that it would be easier to be hearing these words, if they had come to you the first day of your experience upon this earth.

And if we were talking to you on your first day of physical life experience, we would say to you: "Welcome to planet Earth!

There is nothing that you cannot be, or do, or have. You are magnificent creator and you are here by your powerful and deliberate wanting to be here. Go forward, giving thought to what you are wanting, attracting life experience to help you decide what you want, and once you've decided giving thought only onto that, most of your time will be spent collecting data, data that will help you decide what it is you want.

But your real work is to decide what you want and then to focus upon it, for it is through focusing upon what you want that you will attract it.

That is the process of creating.I believe that you're great, that there's something magnificent about you.Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly this something that is within, this power within you that's greater than the world, it will begin to emerge, it will take over your life, it will feed you, it will clothe you, it will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence if you'll let it.

Now that is what I know for sure. Be easy about this, have fun with it. There's nothing you're supposed to do, only that what you want to do.
