William Shatner Attracts Who???!!!
I loved seeing the movie The Secret and the Law of Attraction getting spoofed on national TV.
And that's what it was: a spoof.
At the end of the show Shatner's character attracts one of the greatest female comedians of all time: Phyllis Diller.
Shatner is shattered.
He thinks "The Secret" didn't work.
He mumbles, "I'm going to sue those people."
What did Shatner's character do wrong?
Why didn't he attract what he said he wanted?
Here's my take on it:
1. Shatner's character sits and concentrates, finger to forehead, and looks like he has a headache. There's no joy on his face. The Law of Attraction works when you feel the end result of what you want, not just think about it. Denny Crain isn't even close.
2. Shatner's character takes no action at all. None. Considering the character he plays, surely he could have picked up the phone and called around. Surely someone in his power circle would be able to connect him to Welch. I could get to Welch if I really wanted to.
3. Shatner's character attracts what he thinks he doesn't want: Phyllis Diller. This is SO relevant. You always attract what you un-consciously think is right for you. In the TV show, Diller is actually an old flame. She represents sex to him, or at least did at one time. This is so Freudian. In order to get what you want, you have to get clear inside of the old programs. Until you do, you won't get what you say you want, you'll get what you unconsciously want.
Finally, Shatner's mumble at the end about suing "those people" is also revealing.
It shows Shatner's character is still a victim, powerless to the world unless he resorts to the one thing he can trust: the legal system.
Again, I loved the episode on Boston Legal.
Just remember it was a spoof.
PS -- Attracting Phyllis Diller is not a bad thing. This brilliant comedian used to make me laugh when I was a kid watching TV. She still makes me laugh. She also learned about success from the same book I did: The Magic of Believing. She looks radiant even today, when she's close to 90 years old. You keep rocking the house, Phyllis.
PPS -- Denny Crain needs to put down his guns and ego and enroll in my Miracles Coaching program. Maybe then he could really attract Racquel Welch.
