* Getting What You Want
Some extremely popular New Age books have recently been teaching how to get (manifest) what you want. Popular books that discuss the topic of manifestation include: Byrne's The Secret, Hicks' Ask and It Is Given, Chopra's Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and Holmes' The Science of Mind.
I think it is useful to understand that our minds do lead the way, and our thoughts are crucial to getting what we want. To sum up my earlier discussion of manifestation ideas (Chapter 7) - I believe these methods will fail more often than not because psychological issues are not resolved. Therefore, unless you feel strongly called to one of these books, I suggest instead that you look to reducing your fears, chipping away at them over time so that you can manifest more of what your soul wants. The recommended systems in Chapter 12 will help you do just that.

Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze
|Excerpt from Be Your Own Therapist: "Materialism is not just the gathering of goods to me but also includes the belief that if I can't sense it with one or more of my five senses, then it is suspect. The idea that one might choose to believe something before actually sensing it is considered daft."|
