The Secret You Need To Know About The Secret

When the movie The Secret became a big hit several years ago it planted a seed in the mass consciousness that we can all create our individual reality from our imagination. After releasing the genie out of the bottle, so to speak, many people began wishing and focusing on the physical objects they could attain because their focus was on a perceived dualistic reality. Little did they know that the power they just discovered was meant to create a deeper understanding of their innermost desires and provide them a way to manifest those desires. Desires of purpose, meaning and contribution, not just superficial physical extensions in a perceived dualistic reality.

Many tried repeatedly with their willpower and determination to create the results they desired. Instead of seeking to attain a state of peace, they focused on what they could get and not what they needed. A state of peace is many things. Let’s examine the varied meanings of living in a state of peace. All of the following definitions are from On a global stage, peace means the normal, nonwarring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world. It is an agreement or treaty between warring or antagonistic nations, groups, etc., to end hostilities and abstain from further fighting or antagonism. On a social level, it is a state of mutual harmony between people or groups. It is also the normal freedom from civil commotion and violence of a community; in other words, public order and security. On a personal level it is a cessation of or freedom from any strife or dissension. It is a freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety or obsessive behavior.  In other words, it is a state of tranquility or serenity as a result of an individual choice to accept peace. Accepting peace comes from revering an inner experience of silence and stillness. Herman Melville once said that “Silence is the only Voice of our God.”

Peace is a result of being satisfied with your current life situation. It is the end result of circumstances, events and interactions with people that are favorable to you. Dissention and warring reactions come from anger. Anger is the resultant state where you feel you are not being treated fairly by circumstances, events or people. It is a result of you giving away your power to create your own reality. You realize that you are not in control of other peoples’ actions or situations. To attain a state of peace you must let go of the ego’s desire to control everything. Only then, can you attain a state of peace. The silent voice of God cannot be heard in a world of dissention, distraction and anger. Only through meditation can you begin to experience your inner self and the still small voice of God.

So, what is meditation anyway? Meditation is letting go of the outside world and opening the door inward to your inner world. A world of silence and stillness where you release the stresses of the outer world and truly let go of your ego. It is a practice, like any other practice, that grows and expands the more you do it. The more you practice meditation, the deeper you get to know the desires that God has planted in your heart. These desires are what you were created to do. The only things that prevent these desires from happening are the repeated thoughts and beliefs that we create as a result of our experience in the outer world. These beliefs are the filter through which we make choices to either act or not act on our desires. It is our choice to either hold fast to our beliefs or find effective ways to remove them from blocking our growth and expansion. Do you want to remove erroneous beliefs from your life?

You are worth it!

Spirituality Guidance defines the art of awakening individuals to the truth of their value. By accepting the simplest explanation of why things occur in your life, you can begin to unfold your innermost desires and develop strategies to accomplish those desires. “Spirituality Guidance is the art of leading individuals to observe, collate and evaluate the facts. It frees the individual from judgment and allows your spirit to truly be free. By utilizing facts and not opinions, an individual can become one with the desires of their heart. The ultimate goal is to actualize these desires through prayer, meditation and service.” – Dean A. Banks, D.D.
