Excerpt from "The Greatest Secret of All"

Moving Beyond Abundance to True Fulfillment

by Marc Allen

There are no secrets, just truths and powerful laws of creation that remain hidden from our awareness until we are ready to hear them.

The law of manifestation is just as concrete as the laws of physics — in fact, the law of manifestation incorporates the laws of physics and chemistry.

We have the power within us to clearly imagine

what we wish to achieve.

The more often we focus our powerful thoughts

on our dreams and goals,

the closer we come to realizing those dreams.

The law is not complicated; in fact it is very simple. This is one reason why so few people understand it: It appears simple, obvious, or strangely enigmatic and puzzling. And we’ve heard it a thousand times before.

I am telling you the secret in the best way I can. But in order for it to work in your life, you need to put it in your own words. How do you understand and describe the simple and profound law of manifestation?

Here’s one way I describe it:

We are powerful creative beings.

When we focus our conscious mind on a goal,

our limitless subconscious mind gets to work

and shows us the way, step by step,

to attain our goal.

Find your own words to describe the secret of manifestation, and watch it work in your life.

Of course there are far greater secrets than the law of manifestation: the secrets of a life well lived, the secrets of happiness and inner peace, the secrets of a life of ease and fulfillment, a miraculous life, a sacred life.

Here is the greatest secret of all, in my words — take it in, and then express it your own words.

We have a great purpose in life —

a great mission, vocation, and calling.

We are here to grow, to evolve,

to reach our full potential

and contribute to the betterment of the world.

This is what has remained a secret for most of humanity: We are far greater than we think we are. Our potential is vast. Most of us have just barely begun to realize who we are and what we are capable of. We have had just brief glimpses of the far more expansive possibilities that are within our reach.

Our task, then, is to discover our unique contribution to the world and let it shine for all the world to see. And when we do it, we help others do it as well, and the light grows and grows, until it becomes a powerful force for change in our lives and in the world.

There are three very simple things we can do to realize the greatest secret of all in our lives:

Love, serve, and remember.

Remember what?

Remember to love and serve, always.

Remember love overcomes fear. Love rises above fear and opens us up to a higher awareness. Love opens the gates of heaven.

We have heard it so many times, but we forget it, over and over:

The Kingdom of Heaven is within.

Remember who you are:

A child of God,

an essential part of a miraculous creation.

Remember that love finds the perfect partnership

in all we do.

To love is to respect and cherish all of creation, and to rise above fear and the need to control, to rise above all forms of domination and exploitation into endlessly creative partnerships with all. We choose the cup of life instead of the sword of fear — in the words of Riane Eisler, we choose the chalice, not the blade.

Remember the brilliantly shining words of Ramana Maharshi:

“The end of all wisdom is love, love, love.”

This is not just some great moral advice, something to do because we want to be good; this is the very practical, down-to-earth key that opens the doors to a new life and a new world, and shows us the great view from the top of the pyramid of humanity.

In everything you do,

love and serve yourself and others.

This is the secret that guides you every moment to create the life of your dreams and a world that works for all. This is the end of every path of study, every worthwhile philosophy.

This is the greatest secret of all:

Loving and serving yourself and others is the key to fulfillment, happiness, and inner peace.

You know the secret now. Put it in your own words, and remember it, act on it, and live it.

Together, working in partnership, we can discover how to live the life of our dreams, and along the way help create a world of peace and prosperity for us all.
