Photograph Taken From Amazon Kindle — The Greatest Secret Book by Rhonda Byrne
Rhonda Byrne has come out again with a new book. One of her most famous books was ‘Secret’. This book ‘The Greatest Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne is all about ‘believing in your present’ and creating our future. It’s about believing in yourself and creating our own reality. The author states that what we experience as a thought is an energy, which builds one’s destiny. It’s like a magic which occurs based on the thought which one has created.
You need to be aware of your thoughts and understand that negative thoughts generally bring a negative environment, and a positive thought makes one feel good. As per the author, ‘Thoughts’ are not awareness, it’s you who are ‘aware’ of your thoughts. So, lets create a happier reality with good thoughts.
It is not possible to live a life without ever being into any negative situation or negative feelings. It’s the circumstances which creates a negative feeling. However, as per the book, we can change our circumstances if we think and feel happy thoughts. The author also asks at one point of time as what are negative feelings and what is the origin of these feelings. The author says that thoughts create feelings.
Is it possible to live your life without ever being thrown about by negative feelings? It’s these thoughts which create feeling. After happy thoughts, one feels happy feelings, which create happy thoughts once again. It is said that thoughts and feelings are two sides of the same coin.
So, the question arises, whether thoughts can create our reality. There are many such books, website articles which states that they do. I experimented with myself fantasizing about the type of food, which I wanted to eat and after few days I saw the food which ultimately went into my stomach enriching my taste buds with containment.
Many people state that with positive thoughts many individuals had filled the vacuum of their life with the things that they needed the most. Some says, its all about the law of attraction. It’s a fact that happy thoughts generate happy feelings.
Often in our lives, we face numerous problems and different situations. There are times when we do not know what is to be done. There are circumstances which seem to control us, and we do not know what is to be done. In all these, we desperately look forward to some miracles or look for an Angel to be our saviour. Suppose if we can change all these by just alternating our thoughts and do wonders with our lives.
Is it possible?
That’s what this book beautifully expresses. Rhonda Byrne have wonderfully tried to express these with her research.
I personally feel that this book could be source of great joy in one’s life.
However, the book confused me in some aspect like ‘Awareness’. It’s written in the book that:
Awareness is and has been the only constant in your life. Your body keeps changing, your mind keeps changing, thoughts, feelings, and sensations all keep changing, but the one thing that has never changed is your awareness of it all.
And that awareness is who you really are.

The reason, why I was confused as because there is also a concept of individuality and consciousness.
Apart from these, I liked the book and before ending I wanted to quote a few lines:
“For some of us, saying is creating. So, naturally, we try to choose our words wisely.”

If I must rate the book on 10 stars and 10 being the highest, I will give the book 9 stars.
