I watched a movie recently called The Secret.

It was about creating your reality using the power of your thoughts.

But, by the end of it, I was still not sure what "the secret" actually was. Is "the secret" that what you think creates what you live?

@John Drake is not "the secret" your capacity to "see" within and thus steer your life the way that you wish? ... I've searched the internet for a simple handbook on "how to see within and steer my life" but can't find any satisfactory ones ... eventually there's the master key system, and other such books but they seem to me to be outdated

There was a previous version of the movie The Secret. The original movie was based on the teachings of Abraham. The current version of the movie has deleted the Abraham material.
I would encourage you to explore the Abraham website: www.abraham-hicks.com

I am marking this as the accepted answer. I have now heard a recording where Abraham talks about The Secret and how they were edited out of it even though they were the reason for it in the first place. And they talk about the real secret being that we all have constant communication and access with non-physical elements. And they added that through editing them out, The Secret movie has actually contributed to keeping the real secret still a secret!

I saw that as well.

I have both versions. Abraham's material is not missing just read by a different actress. Ester Hicks with her Abraham channeling voice was removed.

With that said, I do think that the original was superior.

I think, the secret is the power of love. Love is an all persuading frequency in the universe and on planet earth. Tune yourself into that frequency by having positive thoughts, and you bump into the other 'loving people', you are able to grasp a clear perspective on life and have blissful ideas how to proceed, after a while you find yourself in a strong network of successful people who help you out and vice versa. This contributes towards your goals in life, whatever they might be...wealth there is, in many forms: money , love , family , creativity etc.

Life is the only thing we have, why spend the time worrying? Be happy every moment, and circumstances will improve according to your level of happiness.

It's easy. I tried it. I become a career person by only practising: No bad emotions, only happy thoughts.

Get on the love train. LIFE IS AWESOME!

Attract through visualization, ask with unwavering faith, believe with doubt you will receive what you ask for and, it shall be yours.

The secret is no secret at all."As a man thinketh so is he" from the Bible is the answer. You are the summation of thoughts that have been inprinted on your mind. Your words are thoughts expressed and every word paints pictures. Out of the abundance of the pictures in your mind you frame your words. We may not realize it, but we have created the circumstances that surround us. In closing life and death are in the power of the tongue and thos who love it will eat the fruis thereof - Scripture

The secret is the law of attraction .. ''like attracts like''.. positive thoughts and feelings attracts positive experiences. of course there is a lot more to it than that. '''the secret'' movie is a very well done introduction. but, in my opinion, it's not - in any way - the whole story. so I believe that you are right to feel or wonder .. ''what is the secret?'' after watching the movie! .. I mean, there is nothing new about ''positive thinking''. but the movie actually leads to more than just positive thinking. you just need to do your own research after watching it to realize that. for example : the connection between the law of attraction and the subconscious mind - the other ''secret'' laws found in hermetic teachings ( read the kybalion ) .. etc

it's not by any means, the only secret. it's one little secret that opens your mind to realize and understand many others! .. that's what life is all about. if you think that .. ''this is it''. then I believe you would be messing the ''real secret''.

In the movie it is the law of attraction. People still don't understand after watching it. They won't understand it until the moment it reaches their brain when they discover how to control it. Its a shift of perception not education. Education is only potential power.

we are actually experiencing a shift of collective consciousness as we speak that is in my opinion why the movie has been successful,

Okay it posted this time here is a second try at a good answer.

The Secret is the Law of Attraction but that is only ONE of SEVEN universal laws. The Emerald Tablet of Thoth you see being buried in Egypt at the very beginning of the film is what is called the Hermetica, later wrote as the Kyblion and The Secret Teachings of the Rosicrucians, it is the SEVEN LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE. The only thing that made The Secret "secret" was the fact that these laws were not well known before. The information has always been right there in plain site and much of it in public domain even. This information has been wrote of by authors such as James Allen, Robert Collier, Napoleon Hill, Wallace D. Wattles, Florance Scovel Shinn, Charles Haanel, William Walker Attenkinson, (pseudonyms: Theodore Sheldon, Theron Q.Dumont, Swami Panchadasi, The Three Initiates, Magus Incognitus)

All of these Authors you can find books on the internet free with very good information.

Jesus taught these laws himself, "To those that have, even more shall they be given. To those that have not, even that which they have will be taken away." What we focus on comes into focus, are our thoughts in abundance or scarcity? Either way will magnify and multiply more of that experience of receiving or losing.

E-motion ( energy in motion) is the fuel/power behind thought , this is the secret , in other words feeling , so simple once you get it .

read this last night in Your Invisible Power chapter 11

"All disappointments and failures are the result of endeavouring to think one thing and produce another. This is just as impossible as it would be for an electric fan to be used for lighting purposes or for water to flow through a crooked pipe in a straight line "

I found this extremely helpfull :-)

I believe the secret is the Law of Attraction. Whatever you think about most will manifest whether you want or not so, to paraphrase Bob Proctor (?), if you can control your thoughts, you can control your life.

The secret is within each of us. It is realizing that we each have all the power, tools, resources, endless possibilities, everything you need to have the life of YOUR dreams and to do with it as you please. It is realizing that there is a higher power,God,a spirit that lives in each of us. If you do realize this power, be careful not to abuse it, for it will come back to you.

Unknown (yahoo) - I think you mean " ... believe WITHOUT doubt that you will receive what you ask for ..." :>) In fact it goes beyond belief if we can get there - we need to get to the point of knowing, but believing is a good start!

I agree with the other answers. I believe the "secret" to the secret is... You are what you think you are so be very choosy & POSITIVE about the thoughts you think... You MUST TRUST in life; that life has only good things waiting for you to discover and you must do your part in the world, which is the action part. You cannot just Think but you must also Do.

Love all things because All things are you, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. I believe Jesus wants us all to know that the time to live is NOW, do not prepare yourself for the afterlife because the afterlife is NOW. In this world there are things that you cannot see because of "filters and egos" but trust me, life is more beautiful than we can imagine. Rest in comfort that peace and love is all around us.

I believe, the secret that the movie "the secret" wished to convey to us is summed up to only two words...that is..."FEELING GOOD" every single day. This is what most of the viewers failed to see at the last part of the movie. When you feel good, all else will be positive.
