Welcome To David


“The Secret,” perhaps the most important film ever made, is basically about the power derived by “Planification, Execution and Labor,” or “Feel, Think, Act,” which has been and is part of the program of the Americana Leadership College ( This is discussed in my link to, “Light.”

Unfortunately, if you want to view the movie now, you have to purchase it. Link to: I have not purchased it yet, so I cannot vouch for the security of the link.

However, which follows is “One Hundred Quotes from the Secret,” which is virtually a transcript of “The Secret”:

1. We all work with one infinite power.
2. The Secret is the Law of Attraction (LOA).
3. Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting.
4. We are like magnets - like attract like. You become AND attract what you
5. Every thought has a frequency. Thoughts send out a magnetic energy.
6. People think about what they don't desire and attract more of the same.
7. Thought = creation. If these thoughts are attached to powerful emotions
(good or bad) that speeds the creation.
8. You attract your dominant thoughts.
9. Those who speak most of illness have illness, those who speak most of
prosperity have it, etc.
10. It's not "wishful" thinking.
11. You can't have a universe without the mind entering into it.
12. Choose your thoughts carefully; you are a masterpiece of your life.
13. It's OK that thoughts don't manifest into reality immediately (if we saw
a picture of an elephant and it instantly appeared, that would be too soon).
14. EVERYTHING in your life you have attracted—accept that fact—it's true.
15. Your thoughts cause your feelings.
16. We don't need to complicate all the "reasons" behind our emotions. It's
much simpler than that. Two categories—good feelings and bad feelings.
17. Thoughts that bring about good feelings mean you are on the right track.
Thoughts that bring about bad feelings means you are not on the right track.
18. Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the
process of becoming.
19. You get exactly what you are FEELING.
20. Happy feelings will attract more happy circumstances.
21. You can begin feeling whatever you desire (even if it's not there)—the
universe will correspond to the nature of your song.
22. What you focus on with your thought and feeling is what you attract into
your experience.
23. What you think and what you feel and what actually manifests is ALWAYS a
match – no exception.
24. Shift your awareness.
25. "You create your own universe as you go along" Winston Churchill

or singing a song, or remembering a happy experience.
28. When you get the hang of this, before you know it you will KNOW you are
the creator.
29. Life can and should be phenomenal—and it will be when you consciously
apply the Law of Attraction.
30. Universe will re-arrange itself accordingly.
31. Start by using this sentence for all of your desires: "I'm so happy and
grateful now that…."
32. You don't need to know HOW the universe is going to rearrange itself.

feelings of having it NOW.

ATTENTION to what's being set in front of you.
38. You can start with nothing—and out of nothing or no way, a WAY will be
39. HOW LONG??? No rules on time—the more aligned you are with positive
feelings the quicker things happen.

wish). We make the rules on size and time.
41. No rules according to the universe—you provide the feelings of having it
now and the universe will respond.

77. For those you work with or interact with regularly—get a notebook and
write down positive aspects of each of those people.

biochemistry. Stress degrades the body.
87. Remove stress from the body and the body regenerates itself. You can
heal yourself.
88. Learn to become still—and take your attention away from what you don't
desire, and place your attention on what you wish to experience.
89. When the voice and vision on the inside become more profound and clear
than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your life.
90. You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you desire it.
You are here to create the world around you that you choose.
91. And allow the world as others choose to see it, to exist as well.
92. People think that if everyone knows the power of the LOA there won't be
enough to go around. This is a lie that's been ingrained in us and makes so
many greedy.
93. The truth is there is more than enough love, creative ideas, power, joy,
happiness to go around.
94. All of this abundance begins to shine through a mind that is aware of
its own infinite nature. There's enough for everyone. See it. Believe it. It
will show up for you.
95. So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you choose all the
things you desire and get behind the good feelings of all your desires.
96. Write your script. When you see things you don't desire, don't think
about them, write about them, talk about them, push against them, or join
groups that focus on them—remove your attention from ‘don't desires’… and
instead place them on ‘do desires’.
97. We are mass energy. Everything is energy. EVERYTHING!!!
98. Don't define yourself by your's the infinite being that's
connected to everything in the universe.
99. One energy field. Our bodies have distracted us from our energy. We are
the infinite field of unfolding possibilities—The creative force.
100. Are your thoughts worthy of you? If not - NOW is the time to change
them. You can begin right where you are right now. Nothing matters but this
moment and what you are focusing your attention on.

An example of the principle of “The Secret” showing up in life is the following true story:
The Tablecloth

The brand new pastor and his wife, newly assigned to
their first ministry, to reopen a church in suburban
Brooklyn , arrived in early October excited about
their opportunities. When they saw their church, it
was very run down and needed much work. They set a
goal to have everything done in time to have their
first service on Christmas Eve.

They worked hard, repairing pews, plastering
walls, painting, etc, and on December 18 were ahead of
schedule and just about finished. On December 19 a
terrible tempest - a driving rainstorm hit the area
and lasted for two days. On the 21st, the pastor went
over to the church. His heart sank when he saw that the roof
had leaked, causing a large area of plaster about
20 feet by 8 feet to fall off the front wall of the
sanctuary just behind the pulpit, beginning about head
high. The pastor cleaned up the mess on the floor,
and not knowing what else to do but postpone the
Christmas Eve service, headed home. On the way he
noticed that a local business was having a flea market
type sale for charity so he stopped in. One of the
items was a beautiful, handmade, ivory colored,
crocheted tablecloth with exquisite work, fine colors
and a Cross embroidered right in the center. It was
just the right size to cover up the hole in the front
wall. He bought it and headed back to the church.

By this time it had started to snow. An older woman
running from the opposite direction was trying to
catch the bus.. She missed it. The pastor invited
her to wait in the warm church for the next bus 45
minutes later. She sat in a pew and paid no attention
to the pastor while he got a ladder, hangers, etc., to
put up the tablecloth as a wall tapestry. The pastor
could hardly believe how beautiful it looked and it
covered up the entire problem area.
Then he noticed the woman walking down the center
aisle. Her face was like a sheet. "Pastor," she
asked, "where did you get that tablecloth?" The pastor explained.
The woman asked him to check the lower right corner to
see if the initials, EBG were crocheted into it there.
They were. These were the initials of the woman, and she had made
this tablecloth 35 years before, in Austria .
The woman could hardly believe it as the pastor told
how he had just gotten the Tablecloth. The woman
explained that before the war she and her husband were
well-to-do people in Austria.
When the Nazis came, she was forced to leave. Her
husband was going to follow her the next week.
He was captured, sent to prison and never saw her
husband or her home again.

The pastor wanted to give her the tablecloth; but she
made the pastor keep it for the church.
The pastor insisted on driving her home, that was the
least he could do. She lived on the other side of
Staten Island and was only in Brooklyn for the day for
a housecleaning job.

What a wonderful service they had on Christmas Eve.
The church was almost full. The music and the spirit
were great. At the end of the service, the pastor and
his wife greeted everyone at the door and many said
that they would return. One older man, whom the
pastor recognized from the neighborhood continued to
sit in one of the pews and stare, and the pastor
wondered why he wasn't leaving.
The man asked him where he got the tablecloth on the
front wall because it was identical to one that his
wife had made years ago when they lived in Austria
before the war and how could there be two tablecloths
so much alike.

He told the pastor how the Nazis came, how he forced
his wife to flee for her safety and he was supposed to
follow her, but he was arrested and put in a prison.
He never saw his wife or his home again all the 35
years in between. The pastor asked him if he would
allow him to take him for a little ride. They drove
to Staten Island and to the same house where the
pastor had taken the woman three days earlier.

He helped the man climb the three flights of stairs to
the woman's apartment, knocked on the door and he saw
the greatest Christmas reunion he could ever imagine.

does not work in mysterious ways.

 Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is
simply say the following small prayer:

Father God, bless the universes in whatever it is You know we may be needing this
day! May they be full of your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with you. Amen.
