i'm late to this, but i just saw on tv that james ray.. one of the main contributors to "the secret" is charged with murder for a sweat lodge he oversaw
he apparently told the people that when they were in the sweat lodge that they'd "feel like they were dying"
and three people died
so now he's on trial
this isn't coinciding with the law of attraction man!
these people are kinda bonkers to me because they try to make their own way and their own righteousness and their own rules
like for example there was fasting that went along with the sweat lodge treatment.. why are people fasting when they don't believe in the God of the Bible? like what is the sacrifice for? do u think ur gnna reach some type of "enlightenment?"
i guess u will be enlightened to the fact that u are hungry as a mug lol
people are out here making up rituals in order to feel righteous.. u think u can will ur way into and out of everything right? u think u can will ur soul into heaven? u better pick up ur Bible son
UPDATE (this is about 15 minutes later)
i am still watching the court tv hearing on this case.. they just showed footage of a sweat lodge to explain it
and there was chanting to call in and wake up the "spirits" and they had a real goat's head skull there in their midst
the goat head or ram's head is representative of satan worship
i say that because in the old testament u'd have to sacrifice a goat to atone for sin
but satan would tell his worshippers to get the goat that had been sacrificed (which represented sin) and go worship it (to worship sin)
so what's that about! do these people know what they're doing?
