The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
A year ago, my life had collapsed around me. I’d worked myself into exhaustion, my father died suddenly, and my relationships with my work colleagues and loved ones were in turmoil. Little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest gift. I’d been given a glimpse of a Great Secret—The Secret to life. The
glimpse came in a hundred-year-old book, given to me by my daughter Hayley. I began tracing The Secret back through history. I couldn’t believe all the people who knew this. They were the greatest people in history: Plato, Shakespeare, Newton, Hugo, Beethoven, Lincoln, Emerson, Edison, Einstein. Incredulous, I asked, “Why doesn’t everyone know this?” A burning desire to share The Secret with the world consumed me, and I began searching for people alive today who knew The Secret.One by one they began to emerge. I became a magnet: as I began to search, one great living master after another was drawn to me.
When I discovered one teacher, that one would link to the next, in a perfect chain. If I was on the wrong track, something else would catch my attention, and through the diversion the next great teacher would appear. If I “accidentally” pressed the wrong link on an internet search, I would be led to a vital piece of information. In a few short weeks I had traced The Secret back through the centuries, and I had discovered the modern-day practitioners of
the Secret. The vision of taking The Secret to the world in a film had become fixed in my mind, and over the following two months my film and television production team learned The Secret. It was imperative that every team member knew it, because without its knowledge, what we were about to attempt would be impossible. We did not have a single teacher secured to film, but we knew The Secret, and so with utter faith I flew from Australia to the United
States where the majority of the teachers were based. Seven weeks later The Secret team had filmed fifty-five of the greatest teachers across the United States, with over 120 hours of film. With every step, with every breath, we used The Secret to create the The Secret. We literally magnetized everything and everyone to us. Eight months later The Secret was released.
