Book : The Secret (2006)
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 burn- ing 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.
