There’s a new movie out for New Age audiences that builds on prior films like The Secret called The Abundance Code. It has the common theme of talking heads surrounding an illustrative back story.
As usual, there is the “it’s all about me” approach and the “change your thoughts, change your world” message. But mixed in was a surprising amount of deeper insight. There was talk of letting go and allowing life/ nature to guide you, about allowing oneself to not know, about abundance not for the sake of gathering wealth but for having more experiences, and several even touched on witnessing and deeper self. There was also a strong message about finding where you can be of service, that life is about relationships and service.
The film was less about means and application and more about reframing your life conceptually. But still, it’s nice to see that growth of understanding taking place, even with some of the long-term personal-growth promoters. 🙂
Update: I’ve had a few questions about this article – this was not meant to be a recommendation. It was commentary on a new film and my observation that some growth is happening. As noted, the message is more about telling yourself a better story than going beyond stories.
