It seems that people have forgotten how to be thankful for the simple pleasures of life.
We all are so busy on our cell phones or rushing to our next “important thing” that we don't take time to slow down and enjoy the blessing of a gentle breeze on our face or the laughter of a small child.
God is in all these simple pleasures of life.
When we are connected to God we know that we have everything we need.
Silence. The empty space that exists when the world steps back and fades away.
The silence is what cradles me, and gives me solace. When the chatter dissolves away, and all that is left is the essence of truth. When I can peer out into the darkness and feel the weight of the words that are unspoken. The silence is where the words go to hide, and when I enter the silence, I can bear witness to their power. Together, we join with the silence, and agree to live in harmony. Quietly. Silently.
The power of The Secret is within each of us. It is much like the reflection of a mirror. What we think and what we send out to the world will return back to us.
Maybe this story is a good example of how the secret works:
I was at lunch yesterday with some people that I work with and one of the men at the table was talking about negative things and he was not in the best of moods. The waitress came to take his food order and he told her what he wanted. He sounded like he was being fake nice to the waitress when he ordered his food. The waitress was trying to be nice but I don’t think she liked how the man sounded when he ordered the food. When the waitress walked away the man said he didn’t think the waitress was being nice to him.
The man was so involved in his bad mood and negative thinking that he couldn’t even see that he wasn’t being pleasant to those around him, and he thought that those around him were not being pleasant to him.
The man got in a better mood after a while. The other man and I were talking about positive things and I think our mood rubbed off on him. It was interesting to me how each of our moods could change the moods of others.
I believe The Secret in this story is that each of us can change our world in either a positive or negative way. Our thoughts create our reality.
Love cannot be simplified into mere words. Anyone with a clear voice and the mind to do it can put forth words of love without having any feeling behind them. Love instead resides in the things we do and do not do out of genuine appreciation and sincere adoration for another person.
