More on Larry King's Show

Here's a photo of John Assaraf, Lisa Nichols, Bob Proctor, and me after the third Larry King Live special on The Secret, which aired live on CNN last night.

If you missed it, CNN is reairing it. Check listings over at

Ao Akua,


PS - It was fun to see Larry laugh when I told him the three laws of the universe. It was more fun to see him react when I told him about The Secret #2.

Hey Joe,

Is it really true that the second main law of the of the Universe is that everyone has to love Italian food?

Already posted at The Secret vs. Science, naturally.

Hi Joe,
So glad to hear there will be a sequel to The Secret. I've been recommending it on my website and even had an inquiry from the UK. Whenever I need to adjust my mood I put it on.

You've been outclassed, mate. By that bloke standing next to you in the picture.

But, then, you wouldn't want to sink this low, I hope, would you?

Bob, thanks for the link. I didn't know about the site. I couldn't get the entire page to load but I got a sense of what's there. Thanks again.

Hi Joe-
I'm a huge fan of "The Secret" but I just watched the video of you on Larry King Live and was amazed that you said the Law of Attraction is all about God? What does God have to do with it? And what if you don't believe in God?

I'll be surprised if you let this particular post live. Live as in "have life".

Your comment, in refernce to the death Jessica Lunsford,"We are attracting everything to ourselves, there's no exception", is probably the most disgusting thing I've heard other than how the poor girl died.

You completely avoided Larry King's question, which is understandable since your goal was to promote the book, the DVD, the movie, the sequel, etc. After all, if you hadn't taken the promotional angle, many more than me would have villified you for it.

Since you emphatically, if not sanctimoniously stated, there's no exception, then you must then be able to state how it is a 9 (NINE) year old girl could possibly attract being raped (repeatedly) and buried while breathing.

Oh, maybe she only attracted the kidnapping.

While I will concede, and agree, that adults, and those who know better can create and manifest both good and evil in their lives, I find it insulting to assume that a molested child "brought it on herself".

I think you should apologize to the family of that young girl. I think you should say, this "Secret" doesn't necessarily apply, and doesn't provide answers to pure evil. It won't always provide a happy place.

I'm not knocking your sales effort. More power to you. Just don't make a little girl who was treated brutally take the blame for what happened to her.

If I had kids of my own, I'd probably be far more vocal about the comment you made. I only hope Jessica's father never gets to hear it.

I have been a reader of your work for some time. I've generally admired and purchased your works as a learning tool both in business and pleasure.

It's a shame that I will view both your works and your comments now with a stained eye.

As I said on the show, it's all God.

Even if you don't believe in God.

Still all God.

Niall, if the Law of Attraction is truly a law, then there are no exceptions to it. None. Not even for a little girl.

I don't like it any better than you, but if you want this to be a Law, then face reality. No loopholes here to make you feel better.

And if you want to truly take this to the next level, you (like me and everyone else reading this)attracted the very experience you are complaining about.

As I said on the show, the whole idea is to awaken. If you want to heal yourself and the planet, then join the movement of awakening.

Blame is easy.

Responsibility is not.

Let's awaken so we can help all the "little girls" out there.

Hi Joe,

I watched the program and it was great.
You said a big truth: "we attract everything, even if we like it or not". I think is time for all of us to start to take responsibility for our life.
I am rowing my boat, is painful but at the end it will be worth it.
Thank you Joe,

Hi Joe,
I watch or listen to The Secret every single day. I have the audiobook in my car's CD player, both versions of the DVD, and I've gifted two copies of the book so far. Your contribution is one that from the very first time I saw the DVD really hit home. First off, I love your energy and your voice. Nobody else could say to me, "I'm here to be a little bit in your face and tell you that yes you did attract that..." and get away with it. I remember the reaction I had the first time I heard that....I thought, "he's right, and that's OK, because I'm here to LEARN."

You're awesome!
