Ivanka Trump Unknowingly Paraphrases Adi Da Samraj
On October 16, 2018, President Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, tweeted a motivational quote she attributed to Socrates (the Greek philosopher), that begins with the words, "the secret of change". Twitter had a field day with that, because the quote actually came from a fictional character named Socrates, in a book by Dan Millman. In this article, we dig deeper, and make the case that the quote in Millman's book was actually a paraphrase of Adi Da Samraj's well-known essay, "The Secret of How To Change". Our case is based on textual analysis, background analysis (Millman was a formal student of Adi Da for years), Millman's own overt acknowledgement of Adi Da in the credits of his book, and his overt inclusion of an excerpt from "The Secret of How To Change" in one of his later books.
