The Secret Society
“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” -Rumi
There is a secret society. There is a secret door. In a secret room. With a secret key. Everyone has access but only some enter through the secret passage way.
You are one of the lucky ones that stumbled upon this sacred text because reading this magical scroll is the first key to the entry way.
I happen to be one of the lucky ones who has access to the teachings of the secret society. And if you listen very carefully beyond the words I’m writing and let go of any preconceived ideas of what I’m about to tell you, then you can have access too.
How did I get so lucky to have access? Well, the secret society fairy came to me and the others in charge, once up a time and dubbed us teachers of this enchanted place. They said to us with such delight, “Figure out how to enter here by listening to the wise teachers of this precious society and then gather the troops and lead them here too so they can enjoy the riches.”
So there we went.
We packed our bags and headed on our journeys through the corn mazes, through the magical mirrors, through the draw bridges, the gardens, the forests, the elevators in the sky and even through the trap doors with sand timers.
And then one day we found it.
We found the key to the door, in the room, to the space where the whole secret society and all its members meet. And it was…
I bet you’re curious what the secret society is like? Well, its different than most. Because first of all it’s not all that secret. It’s available to every living thing being on the planet, but not everyone meets there often.
They can though.
And every good feeling in the Universe lives there. Feelings like unconditional love, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, peace, wholeness, safety, warmth and serenity.
Would you like me to lead you down the corridor to the secret room?
You got it.
I thought you’d never ask.
Lean in and listen closely. I’m going to give you the secret code.

You already have all of these lovely feelings inside of you.
And the secret society monsters like you to forget that. They set these trap doors in the forests you walk through so that you think that all of these cozy, warm feelings live outside of you in things in the outside world. So, you go your whole life trying to get back “home” to that lovely feeling by altering your outside world to find what has been inside all along. You never needed to alter a thing to enter this society.
All you had to do was remember who you truly are and be open to your life being a life that happens from the inside out. You feel your own feelings of love and then you look out through your eyes and think it was caused out there in the world. In people, in money, in food and the like.
But today, you’ve stumbled upon a secret society teacher who is here to correct that innocent misunderstanding once and for all so that you can enjoy the riches the society fairies speak off that have been passed down by the great sages.
Everything you’ve ever wanted lives inside of you, not outside. You are that which you seek.
When you feel anything less than that nice feeling inside, no matter what’s occurring outside in your “life”, well then you’ve innocently been caught up in an illusion that your life is happening to you and not through you.
You might innocently think that thoughts don’t move through you and that they are real, stable “things”.
But they aren’t.
They move. They are just ideas, opinions, a way to see the world. And they are passing through your screen of life, giving you an experience of life. That’s it. There is nothing permanent or solid about them. That secret society is the permanent part. That part we all have.
Knowing this allows us to let go of the way thoughts and feelings are showing up for us moment to moment. (By the way, we feel our own thinking. So thoughts and feelings are one in the same.) Knowing all of this, we can take thoughts less seriously. Guess what else? They eventually settle. And what’s there when they settle?
The key. To the door. To the room.
We happen upon this secret society inside of us thats been with us all along. Our default state. The constant back drop that is us with some other human stuff that passes by from time to time.
So how will you recognize me and the other teachers and members when we meet? You’ll feel it. You’ll see a gleam in our eyes. Time will stop. And you’ll know that you are Ok.
The great news is that you can meet anyone here at any time. You can even begin to remind others of the secret key and the secret door and the secret room, simply by being a member and being in the default state of love yourself.
They’ll feel it.
See the gleam and know.
And then you’ll have to whip out your secret scroll and tell them the secret password phase.
