Sorry it took me so long to get back here. Thanks for all the well wishing and advice. Continuing to read and ponder. I have a friend who seems to have gone really round the bend with an author named Neville Goddard and the similar viewpoint of The Secret. I see some similarities in the "I Am" concept and what came down the pike from scn. We are gods, we have all the solutions etc. Any opinions how that is a similar mind warp idea? It seems to have a similar concept, and just wondering if there was any opinions about that. Christianity seems to have a universal "forgiveness" idea. Not entangled up with all the earlier similars, find the overt at the bottom of the chain solution. Just a "love yourself" kind of doctrine. And you are forgiven. This all may sound incredibly simplistic. Just interested in hearing what others might say. Thanks in advance. Appreciate all your thoughtful answers.
