What's Wrong with "New Thought"?

"Heathenism by its very nature must be strongly against the mainline of the New Thought movement, which suggests that reality is what we think, as if there were no real world..."
So begins Siegfried Goodfellow's brief, but compelling, condemnation of the New Thought movement, most notably represented by A Course In Miracles, The Secret, as well as other popular abundance-oriented programs. It's worth a read, particularly if you embrace a grounded path such as Heathenry: Heathenism and New Thought : Not Compatible
