Note that it shows and cites an Emerald Tablet as being a foundational work of The Secret. (In everything I’ve ever read that has been like The Secret, I have never, ever come across a mention of this Emerald Tablet. And I have read a lot. Books you’ve never read because they’re out of print.)
Wikipedia says this about the Emerald Tablet.
Go read it. Then tell me where the hell that could possibly fit into our modern, scientific and technological life except by putting a totally psychotic spin on it?
Here is another part of the Real Secret:
I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.
— Ecclesiastes 9:11 (New Living Translation)
