When would NOW be the time to once and for all enjoy total abundance and true wealth financial, relationally, mentally, physically and spiritually…

You really do have the power within you (regardless of what everyone else does) to create the life you desire and deserve.

So says James Arthur Ray, author of The Secret.  Ray, a new age guru claims you can attract wealth and success by putting out the right thoughts and energy.  For ten thousand bucks each, a bunch of his suckers followers participated in an event, including several hours in a large sweat lodge where several people became very ill and three, so far, have died.  The deaths are being investigated as possible homicides, though I don’t know why because according to Ray’s teachings you receive what you want by putting it out there, so to speak.  Based on that one could only assume that some of the participants in the sweat lodge were suicidal,  and others had the desire to become very ill.  And as for Ray, he apparently was concentrating on getting in big trouble with the authorities.

Ray isn’t the first one to make piles of money writing books, creating dvd’s, holding seminars, and making similar claims and probably won’t be the last.  The people that fall for follow these crooks gurus, to me, are no different than those who believe in a god.  Simply put, the bible was the first self help book and, by far, still has the biggest following.

I’m just saying.

  1. WHOA! The Bible is the first self-help book? All new agey and stuff – There must be a comment for I am your god to make here 🙂

    • I imagine he will make an appearance when he can make time in his busy schedule. I would also be very surprised if he didn’t leave a comment on my revelation that god spoke to me
