“My Secret Place” Pay Forward # 167

I Greet The Indwelling Secret Place.

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – “My Secret Place.”  The message I got from Chapter five of the Sermon on the Mount by Emmet Fox, couldn’t have come at a better time.  Our secret place is our controlling center; it’s were we do our thinking, which determine how we will experience life.  I’ve tried to hide some of my ideas in my secret place.  However, the things I’ve dwell on keep expressing themselves in my outer world.  I need a change of policy in my controlling center.  One desired change is to send out into the world only my good-side; my not good-side, demands equal time.   I have enough proof that my changing the outer observance without changing my thoughts and feelings will turn out to be another “fix.”  “What you do speaks so loudly, I can’t hear what you’re saying.”  The only one I’m fooling about what’s storied in my “Secret Place,” is me.  This realization has become useful for my uncovering and discovering what’s hidden in my sub-conscious mind.  The simple fact is whatever I’m experiencing is what I have stored in my Secret Place, what I really believe.  My conscious mind has been known to lie to me.   “Applause that follows upon outer acts is the only reward they will bring.”  When we blame someone or an event for what we experience; we give up our right to surrender it to our Creator or to change ourselves.  Ownership is vital.  Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
