How can a person be truly happy regardless of circumstances? I heard of the movie called The Secret, but I haven't watched it, however, I did read the book and it was interesting. Has anyone on here tried the law of attraction before, and if so, has it changed your life?

Yes, i have tried the law of attraction. It's nothing new to Hindu philosophy. Hindu's have been using the law of attraction for thousands of years. No it has not changed my life. It's not easy to do either. You have to believe & visualize. I'm already happy though. I don't need "things" and "money" to find happiness. I have a gorgeious daughter, a super handsome sweet husband, and the best friends ever. I don't need too much else.
Try studying bhuddism. There will always be suffering, even when you "attract" what you want out of life. The best way to stay happy is to find content in simplicity. The "want more" attitude of most humans just leads them to more suffering.

I have learned a lot about being truly happy through Buddhism; I am a Christian, but I have incorporated a lot of Buddhist practices into my life, they really help a lot!

I know that posive thinking can help as well as living in the moment, but my problem is that I have a hard time letting go of my self-defeating habits. I'm not looking for materialistic things to make me happy because I know better than that, it's just so hard sometimes to let go of what's familiar.
This is something I'm working through, as well. What works best for me is to just remain conscious of those behaviors, and when you catch yourself going down that same old path, stop, take a breath, and step off that path. It's uncomfortable at times, but with practice it becomes easier. =)

I have read the book, and find it this has always been my philosophy, but my happiness lies in that simplicity and content.
