On Pop Mysticism

I’ve been thinking about Pop Mysticism as a result of listening to a recent Point of Inquiry podcast on the subject. I’ve found that popular books such as The Secret are nothing more than fluffy trash. These books present a kernel of wisdom or good advice smothered in a complicated mythology and then coated in a shiney shell. They are kind of like peanut M&Ms, except instead of chocolate you get a bunch of crap.
