The Secret Place, Part 2

Continued from Part 1.

Finding the Secret Place

How do we transport ourselves to this secret place? How do we obtain divine access? And, once entrance has been accomplished, how do we rest and dwell in it continuously? Another worrisome question is this: Once we have achieved it, can we ever actually lose the sacred key that unlocks the secret place?

Finding our center of peace begins with identifying the proper physical setting. Somewhere in our material world exists a space already prepared for us.

The Importance of Prayer and Meditation

The most important way to discipline the mind, and thus connect with Truth, is to spend regular time in prayer and meditation. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore knew firsthand what a tremendous difference prayer can make in life. If we all applied ourselves to prayer, we could free ourselves of the ills of humanity. 

“Prayer is man's steady effort to know God,” said Charles. “There is an intimate connecting spirit that logically unites man and his source.”
