a long-neglected book dating from 1910
called 'The Science of Getting Rich.'
In it she found how to let your thoughts and feelings get you everything
you want, and determined to share it with the world. She called it 'The
Decoding 'The Secret':
"...Byrne was a divorced mother in her 50s who had hit a rocky patch in her business and personal lives. It was in that moment of despair, when she
'wept and wept and wept' (as she recounted to Oprah on the first of two broadcasts devoted to her work), that she discovered

theory of the universe the theory that
One is All, and that All is One; That one Substance manifests itself as the seeming many elements of the material world -is of Hindu origin, and has been gradually winning its way into the thought of the western world for two hundred years. It is the foundation of all the Oriental philosophies, and of those of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz,
and Emerson. ....If you wish to know how the conclusions were arrived at, read
the writings of the authors mentioned above."
The First Principle - chapter 4:
"THOUGHT is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance. The stuff from which all things are made is a substance which thinks, and a
thought of form in this substance produces the form.
"Original Substance moves according to its thoughts; every form and process you see in nature is the visible expression of a thought in Original Substance. As the Formless Stuff thinks of a form, it takes that form; as it thinks of a motion, it makes that motion....
"When man has a thought-form, he takes material from the forms of nature, and
makes an image of the form which is in his mind. He has, so far, made little or no effort to co-operate with
Formless Intelligence; to work 'with the Father.' He has not dreamed that he can
'do what he seeth the Father doing.' ... We propose to prove that he may do so; to prove that any man or woman may do so, and to show how.
"As our first step, we must lay down three fundamental propositions....
1."There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
"A thought, in this substance, Produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
"Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.
"As a first step toward getting rich, you must believe the
three fundamental statements... I
repeat them here:-
There is a
thinking stuff from which all
things are made....
A thought, in this substance,
produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
Man can form things in his thought,
and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause
the thing he thinks about to be created....
"Do not ask why these things are true, nor speculate as to how they can
be true; simply take them on trust. The science of getting rich begins with the
absolute acceptance of this faith."
