Do our THOUGHTS really create our REALITY?

James, interesting idea put forth. Seems unprobable, yet has definite merit if it could ever be made a reality.


"The Secret" is a well-marketed attempt at encouraging positive thought and supporting individuals to discover personal empowerment. Obviously, if it or anything like it was as impactful as suggested, we would be be rapidily seeing the state of the world improve in ways not to be guessed at. With the untold millions of books, DVD's and networking campaigns, why aren't we hearing a high ratio of absolute success?

The Secret Marketing campaign ~ The movie was advertised on the Internet using tease advertising and viral marketing techniques in which The Secret and the specific details of the film were not revealed. Additionally, Prime Time Productions grants written permission to individuals or companies, via application at the official site, to provide free screenings of the film to public audiences. Optionally, the DVD may be sold at these screenings.

Aggressive marketing ~ While continuing to speak highly of the film, Esther Hicks (presented as "secret teacher" in the first edition of the film) goes on to say "Jerry and I were uncomfortable with what felt to us like a rather aggressive marketing campaign (just not our style, nothing wrong with it)... allowing them to edit us out was the path of least resistance." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret

What the Secret gets right, is it is the individual who has to make choices about "how to think about and live their life." This is what it will take for your idea to come into being. You would have to go forward  and make this happen, attract other's to agree and keep the the core idea pure.

  • Everywhere you turn, the idea that coronavirus has brought on a "new normal" is present and true. But for higher education, COVID-19 exposes a long list of pernicious old problems more than it presents new problems.
  • It was widely known, yet ignored, that digital instruction must be embraced. When combined with traditional, in-person teaching, it can enhance student learning outcomes at scale.
  • COVID-19 has forced institutions to understand that far too many higher education outcomes are determined by a student's family income, and in the context of COVID-19 this means that lower-income students, first-generation students and students of color will be disproportionately afflicted.

Masturbation boosts your immune system, helping you fight off infection and illness

Can an orgasm a day really keep the doctor away?

Sexual arousal and orgasm increase the number of white blood cells in the body, making it easier to fight infection and illness.

  • Achieving orgasm through masturbation provides a rush of feel-good hormones (such as dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) and can re-balance our levels of cortisol (a stress-inducing hormone). This helps our immune system function at a higher level.
  • The surge in "feel-good" hormones also promotes a more relaxed and calm state of being, making it easier to achieve restful sleep, which is a critical part in maintaining a high-functioning immune system.
  • Just as bad habits can slow your immune system, positive habits (such as a healthy sleep schedule and active sex life) can help boost your immune system which can prevent you from becoming sick.
