is this ‘The Secret’ in action before i knew it?


I have mentioned earlier that I will some day share my views on ‘The Secret’ Law of Attraction … so, here comes my story of ‘The Secret’ – In action; before I even heard about the book.

I strongly feel – whether you call it ‘The Secret’ Law of Attraction OR Power of Subconcious Mind OR Positive Intentions OR whatever – there is definitely truth in ‘you are the creator of your destiny’ saying

In my college days, I was highly influenced by a Gujarati book ‘Manvi na man’ (meaning ‘Minds of Humans’) or ‘Tough Times Never Last But Tough People Do’ or works of Swami Vivekananda … And I have seen many things come my way – just by the power of thoughts … Some may consider few instances as mere coincidence or even ‘craziness’ of a ‘mungerilal’ but I do not have problem in being ‘crazy’ if it brings positive results to me!

Moreover, the one particular instance that I am going to share here is about attracting ‘something so huge’ that even skeptics would want to think about it … Let me now jump to the actual story –

I was fascinated by a (Gujarati) Science magazine for children (Safari) … and one piece on hot-air ballooning made me dreaming about ‘how nice it would be to experience a ride in one such vessel?’ … I do not recall the exact time lag between the day I read about it and the day I saw a small note (hidden in some corner) in a local newspaper saying – ‘Hot-Air balloon comes to city to provide joy ride to college students’ but it was definitely soon!

I was already on cloud nine and grabbed the opportunity by reaching the venue on next morning (a Sunday) … I reached near the place in public transport and was happily surprised to see a classmate ‘waiting’ on his scooter just as I stepped down the local city bus. Why I consider it a ‘blessing in disguise’ today? Because I did not know him well enough – neither do I recollect his face (and nor did I know his name even then) – but I believe he was there (while the ‘universe’ was re-arranging itself to ‘attract’ the balloon ride) for me! He said he too come there to enjoy the joy ride of a hot-air balloon and I hopped on his vehicle to reach the University campus at the place mentioned in the advert.

Reaching there, we figured out that the information was sent out to all colleges well in advance and that students who had a document signed by the Principal (Head) of their respective college will only be considered for the ride. However, someone was kind enough to mention that we can be included if we can get the said document signed by our College Principal (then and there on the early Sunday morning). Do you now get that why I mentioned my so-called friend as a boon? Yes, he had the two-wheeler – and he even knew where the residence of Principal wa – and we were soon back at the venue with the required documentation (duely signed by the Head of our College)! 🙂 BUT, only to hear that the ride has been postponed to next day – due to bad weather. 😦

If the balloon had come to my city then how can I not take the pains of trying for the ‘joy ride’ again on next day? I reached the place on time again (in local city bus) but it was the same story – the ride was postponed once again – due to bad weather.

I do not know for how many days I kept on trying. They even changed the venue in the process (and I think I had also hurt one of the arms in the meantime). BUT, I finally enjoyed the ‘ultimate joy ride in a hot-air balloon – right in my city – free of cost!’. Now, I would definitely like to call it ‘The Secret – In action, even before I heard about it’ – I had attracted the hot-air balloon to my city!

I truly believe the vast universe is like a genie which constantly keeps whispering ‘Your wish is my command!’ – Go ahead and ASK … Don’t be shy or do not feel limited in what you can attract! ENJOY!

(Are you really surprised to know that my dear friend did not show up ever after the first day – the only time when I needed his help?!)

    Absolutely with you on this Harsh!

    I am truly fascinated by this concept of “The Secret” like any other normal being who would see the movie or read the book. It does works and is the same old “sanskars” that are grandparents and parents tries to fill in us that stay happy, keep your worries aside and your problems are temporary…bla….bla…n..bla…… If you think, this is the same concept of the secret. That you stay happy and you will attract more happiness, you think positive you will attract positivity……I have been living my life like that long before I read “The Secret” from the experience of our parents n teachers who have seen life unfolded. But despite knowing all this………we still at times gets entangled in our day to day worries, obstacles and end up overlooking the big picture. Despite being knowledgable enough to understand that there is a forest out there, if you broaden your vision and move away from the tree. This is exactly where one is in need of SUPPORT to drive one out from the state of inertia to change tracks. We all tend to feel insecure and helpness at times. We all need support and love to change tracks. Perhaps the answer lies in being loved, respected and supported by people around you. And how you achieve that at all times is the big question may be ??

    This is the beauty… I do believe that every single little God’s Creation, Living or Non Living, Visible or Invisible, Tangible or Intangible, no matter what size but they all are in the beneficial of Mankind, It’s up to our wish and efforts on What, When and How Much we get it from these hidden treasures.
    Good Luck, Keep Going, Keep pushing, keep teaching and we will Keep learning 🙂

  4. Dharmesh Gandhi Says:

    Totally agree. Even I had real-time experience where I wished (“I wish I could…”) and it got fulfilled. There are many such incidences in my life. If you wish it and if you stick to your efforts to get it sincerely and honestly, the day to realise it is never far away!

  5. Prijit Says:

    This “law of attraction” or “secret” or whatsoever it might be referred to is a very Oriental concept. We all vibrate (recall Physics) and effect every other person, object in this universe. The reverse is also true. i.e. we all are effected by others’ vibration.

    A Holy gentleman I have come across very recently opined that every activity of ours and every single incident we come across is a cumulative effect of all our Karma of this life and previous lives. In other words, if one has been good before and is good now, he will face favorable circumstances. On the other hand, if one has committed bad Karma in the past, those will sure to come back and take its toll.

    Do I sound very sublime ? Well, as I have said, these are not my thoughts. I am just an ordinary mortal. However, this might explain your serendipity.

    Swami Vivekananda also says similar things !!

    Good Luck and Merry Christmas.
