Johannes R. Malan

Johannes R. Malan is an ordained spiritual leader in a small, progressive and non-sectarian spiritual community in Cape Town, South Africa. This particular spiritual community stresses the importance and the freedom of each individual to find their own truth. It does not impose any particular beliefs or worldviews on its members. Before he joined them he served a large mainline denomination for more than 10 years. He holds a Masters Degree in Clinical Pastoral Care from the University of Stellenbosch. Roux (as he is better known) is an accredited New Insights Life Coach. As a Life Coach he follows both a structured approach (the course material of New Insights) and an unstructured approach where the client determines the content of the Life Coaching Session. Roux also uses his extensive knowledge of various spiritual traditions, psychology and personal development to create personal or inner growth material that are both unique and holistic in its approach. He recently developed the PeacePowerPath TM to enable people with busy lives to build their own personalised and holistic inner growth practice one step at a time. In the PeacePowerPath TM course he teaches you how you can build a personalised and holistic inner growth practice to change you life for the better using only 10 minutes a day. Roux is well-known for his unique insights and new perspectives. He became aware of his ability to see things in ways that others often don’t since a very young age. He uses this ability to create little shifts in people’s awareness which can ultimately lead to a total transformation of their inner world. Roux is just an ordinary person who made a little effort to understand the world in which he lives a little better. Apart from this passion he lives an ordinary life of going to the movies, walking on the beach, exercising a little, spending time with his two teenage daughters and enjoying special times with his girlfriend. He enjoys writing and doing art to express to himself. He love to be in nature and are particularly fond of horses. Roux Malan’s Websites: http://www.translimits.co.za http://www.peacepowerpath.com

Introduction Welcome to our special report! Do not underestimate the value of this report simply because it is free. This 26-page report is packed with ideas that will create a new level of awareness for you about the attainment of peace, power and happiness. We will introduce you to seven secrets that will give you a roadmap towards peace, power and happiness. I know that there are numerous books on the topic out there. I will certainly not claim to be the first to discover these secrets. The secrets to happiness, power and peace have been with us since ancient times. The only difference is that these secrets are now much more readily available due to the technology of mass communication that we have today. Not only that, today ordinary individuals are translating these secrets into accessible and contemporary language from the rather esoteric and mysterious language of the ancient documents. Through these contemporary translations people like you and me can also benefit from these secrets. In this special report I will share these basic secrets with you in simple and direct language that will be easy to understand. You will find no esoteric mumbo jumbo in this report. I will give you only a few simple, but powerful I insights that can change the way you view the world forever. When you wake up to these little changes in viewing the world you will already start to find a new state of peace, power and happiness. So are you ready to start to crack the peace, power and happiness code? Let’s go!

SECRET ONE

True Happiness, Power and Peace Arises From Within

It is extremely important to know the first secret before you try to come to grips with the other six secrets. This secret is the foundation on which our peace, power and happiness rests. You will not be able to make progress with any of the other secrets unless you come to grips or wake up to the first secret. In order to understand this secret you need to realise that we all live in two worlds simultaneously. The one world is the outer world that is filled with objects like desks, computers, birds and people. The other is the inner world that we know through for instance our thoughts, feelings, inner images and memories. Our inner world is very close to us. We take it with us where ever we go. The outer world keeps itself a little more distant. In the outer world we can move for example move from New York to London. When we move from the one city to the other the first city will “vanish” from our direct experience. On the other hand when we move from New York to London we will take our inner world with us though. So the unhappiness that we experienced in New York will take accompany us to London unless we change our inner world. If you understand this little insight you will attain a new awareness of where lasting happiness, peace and power reside. Yes! You are right! True happiness, peace and

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

power reside in the inner world. Just to underline this insight again let me give another example. If you are unhappy and poor it will not necessarily change things for you if you become rich. You will only go from a poor unhappiness to a rich unhappiness. If you are unhappy without a partner and you hope that a partner will make you happy you are searching for happiness in the wrong place. You will move from a single unhappiness to relationship full of unhappiness. The same held true for peace and power! You can’t attain them by becoming rich or getting a partner. Why? It is fairly easy to understand. If you search for peace, power of happiness in your outer world you are trying to find happiness THROUGH something else. Let me clarify my statement with a few examples: I want to find happiness THROUGH having more money. I want to find power THROUGH having more investments I want to find peace THROUGH having more insurance. Can you see the inherent flaw in these statements? Can you see that the inherent flaw is located in the word THROUGH? Can you see that if the item that you like to get your peace, power or happiness THROUGH are not realized or fall away (once you have it) you are back to square one? You will again be restless, powerless and unhappy! Let me drive in the nail a little further with a few more examples. I want to find happiness THROUGH my career. I want to find power THROUGH marrying a powerful husband. I want to find peace THROUGH my religious beliefs. Actually there is another fatal flaw in the statements above.

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

We are not able to FIND peace, power or happiness. Searching for peace, power and happiness presupposes that you do not have it right now. If you cannot find happiness by searching for it why is it that you find so many people in the world who are searching for it? In fact one can almost say we all are searching for it. The answer is kind of funny. You will easily understand it if you look at the way your eyes operate. Your eye can see the whole world, BUT your eye cannot see itself. Therefore if your eye would look for happiness (or power and peace) and those states where actually tucked away in the eye itself it is obvious that the eye will never find peace, power and happiness! The same holds true for us as human beings. We are forever looking for peace, power and happiness OUT THERE, while these states are actually IN HERE. Happiness, peace and power can only be found in the INNER WORLD. A key question for each one of us is the question: “Where do I believe are peace, power and happiness located?” Is it located in the inner or the outer world? Be careful though to only answer the question from an intellectual understanding. Very often our ACTIONS are more revealing of our true beliefs. So another key question is: “What do I DO to find happiness?” While I write that question I smile a little, because I am sure you possibly are keen to give an answer to this question. I am always keen to answer it too! The fact is when I step back a little I realise that this question actually is a trap. It is misleading, because as I already affirmed earlier we can do NOTHING to find happiness, peace and power. A better question is: “What do you do TO BE happiness, peace and power?”

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

You see peace, power and happiness cannot be achieved by doing. They can only be DISCOVERED by being powerful, peaceful and happy. Peace, power and happiness are not ACTIONS, but they are states of BEING or CONSCIOUNESS. Please do not close this report if this is a little difficult to understand. Let me explain it with a picture. For most of us when we think about a hurricane it represents a huge amount of action, but did you know that in the eye (centre) of the hurricane there is complete stillness. This illustrates the difference between ACTION and BEING. Action is in the outer world, but being is the inner world. Happiness, peace and power are found the eye (inner world) and not in the storm (outer world). If you wake up to this truth you life will change dramatically. Are you ready to find peace, power and happiness within? SECRET TWO

True Peace, Power and Happiness can be only realised by creating little “shifts” from the outer to the inner world.

Do you remember how I used the idea of the “eye” that can’t see itself? I want to take that little word picture a little further now. A very funny thing to notice in the English language is that the word “eye” and the word “I” (Self) both have exactly the same pronunciation. So we can transfer the idea of the “eye” search for something outside and not finding in because it is inside the “eye”

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

also on the “I”. Very often “I” search for peace, power and happiness in the outside world, but I don’t find it because it is in the “I”!! If this is true it would mean that to DISCOVER peace, power and happiness one needs to first start to see yourSELF or your “I”. I hope you have followed me up until now. Let me share a little story with you to illustrate what I mean. One day a seeker journeyed to a master in the mountains. Sitting down in front of the master he starts to complain: “Master, I have been searching the whole world to find happiness and peace. I am so unhappy with the circumstances in my life and the people who are near to me disappointed me time and time again. They are unfaithful to me and they always think about themselves first. How can I change my circumstances and how can I change the people in my life for the better? The master remained quiet for a long time, and then he slowly started to speak: “How about changing your self?” In that answer resides the second secret to discover lasting peace, power and happiness. You need to change your own inner world. I like to think of this change as little shifts that take place as you first REALISE and then start to KNOW that peace, power and happiness truly reside within. There is a difference in knowing this with your intellect (brain) and knowing this with your heart and ultimately with your whole being. We go through these different levels of knowing through little shifts of insight and experience. Very often these shifts occur when one or more of the things that we tried to find happiness (peace & power) through falls away. It may be the death of a loved one, a financial crisis, a divorce or the failing of our health. These experiences can become wake up calls in order to point us to the place of lasting peace, happiness and power.

I have awakened to these truths through a divorce, a failing of my health as well as loss of my career. All three occurred almost simultaneously. Funny enough I started a real search for truth a few years before it happened. The inner journey can sometimes cause frightening outer results! But I can truly say that today I am living my life from I place of much more authenticity, harmony and inner peace. It was all worth while! Furthermore my life has changed radically and now that I am not so focussed on the outer circumstances anymore. In fact, they seem to take care of themselves! My life is starting to flow and I don’t feel like I have to push so hard anymore. I am sure as I continue working towards those little shifts that I am talking about it will become even easier than it is now. Luckily we do not all need to go through terrible losses in order to start to create little shifts of awareness and realization in our lives. We can slowly start to shift the location of our peace, power and happiness from the outer world towards the inner world. We can slowly start to turn the “eye” on the “I” and become aware of the power, happiness and peace that are already residing within us. Are you ready to create those little shifts?

SECRET THREE

You can consciously “create” these little “shifts” in awareness through dedicating yourselves to inner growth practices.

We are all in some or other way caught on the treadmill of life. Very often we are like a little rat on his or her little tread mill. We run on the tread mill and cause it to turn faster and because it turns faster we run faster and because we run faster it turns faster and because it turns faster we run faster and because we run faster it turns faster and because it turns faster we run faster …. WHAM !!! We either breakdown mentally, physically and spiritually or somehow we realise that this cannot be it. There must be more to life than the tread mill! It is at that point that a little shift inside us starts to happen. A little breakthrough can occur in the midst of our “breakdown”. The great thing is once we have experienced those little “shifts” we want more because we start to see that they can open up the way towards peace, power and happiness. Let me emphasise though that these shifts cannot be forced!!! They occur spontaneously when you create the right environment for them to occur. These shifts are somewhat like seeds that lay dormant (undeveloped) in ALL OF US. Once the right environment is created these shifts will spontaneously occur similar to the “shifts” or “breakthroughs” of seeds at they shed their skin and penetrate through the earth towards the light.

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

The question then is how we can create the right environment for these inner shifts to occur. The answer is a simple one: by regularly taking time to turn within. Our inner world is somewhat like a garden. It needs regular attention in order to allow happiness, peace and power arise from its soil. We need to take out the weeds and give our inner potentialities water and nutrition on a regular basis. I call these actions that create the environment for peace, happiness and power to naturally arise in our inner world, inner growth practices. Through the ages the pioneers in the discovery of inner peace, power and happiness handed down these secrets in various ways and different languages. We can divide these inner growth practices in more or less four broad categories. There are the inner growth practices of the mind, the heart, the body and the soul or spirit. Very often individual teachers of the past would emphasise one of these inner growth practices more than others. Today more and more people realise that in order to discover our true inner potential of happiness, peace and power we need to combine these practices. Today we need to approach our inner growth practice in a holistic way, because emphasising only one dimension of our being can lead to imbalance. Let me give you a little more detail on each of these inner growth practices. The nature of this special report doesn’t give me the space necessary to go into great details here. I will only give an overview. The inner growth practices of the mind deal with things like our thoughts (words and pictures) and our intentions. The inner growth practices of the heart deal with our feelings, emotions, sense of care and empathy for our self and others. The inner growth practices of the body include things like exercise, nutrition, breathing and rest. Lastly the inner growth practices of the
To Follow Me On Twitter Please go to http://www.twitter.com/rouxmalan

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

soul or spirit deal with things like meditation, prayer and connecting to the whole or all-that-is or what some call God or the Higher Self.

The PeacePowerPath TM will teach you how to use six different, but complementary inner growth practices that will create the little shifts in your awareness that will allow inner happiness, peace and power to arise naturally. To find out more go to http://www.peacepowerpath.com

None of these practices are better than the others. The all lead to the same place namely our true home or our full inner being. So are you ready to find the secret of allowing those inner “shifts” to take place?

SECRET FOUR

In the inner world less is more and this is the secret to “creating” inner shifts in awareness.

Before I dive into secret number three I want to elaborate a little more on the idea of the eye (the Self) that cannot see itself. The fact that we as human being tend to see the world in the same way the eye does (not seeing itself) very often leads to a situation that we don’t see ourselves as part of the problem. When we are unhappy we tend to think that the unhappiness is out there. When we feel powerless we tend to think that the powerless is out there. When we feel restless we tend to think that the restlessness is out there. The opposite is true though. The powerless, unhappiness and restlessness are ALWAYS all IN HERE. They are WITHIN. So why, then, do we see the restlessness, powerless and unhappiness out there? The answer lies in the instrument with which we see the world. If our eye for instance had a cataract we will tend to think that the world is very unclear and hazy. So let me say what I really want to reveal to you. Please sit down before you read the next sentence. YOU SEE THE WORLD AS YOU ARE AND NOT AS IT IS TRULY IN ITSELF. This means every thought, every feeling and every sensation that you have are DISTORTED by your inner world. Let me illustrate again:

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

Let us say the picture on the left above represents who I truly am and the picture on the right above represents how you now look at me. You have a distorted picture of me, because you at this point in time only know a little bit about me. In fact some people’s idea of me may look at little more like this.

Say for instance you hate everybody who writes e-books on personal growth. Maybe you think they only want money or whatever then you picture of me will be seriously distorted like the pictures above. You are not seeing the world or any person CLEARLY because you continually distort them through the lens of your own inner world. If that is true in order to discover happiness, peace and power you need to take away rather than add anything in
To Follow Me On Twitter Please go to http://www.twitter.com/rouxmalan

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

order to see clearly. You need to take away those cataracts, those rose-eyed glasses or those depressing dark ones. You need to operate on the “eye” itself (the “I”). Therefore your inner growth practices need to be mainly about elimination rather than addition! You want to get rid of your illusions (distorted pictures of the world). You don’t want to add more that will blind you even more towards what is real. As the fourth secret reveals more is less in the inner world. Don’t clutter your inner world with more intellectual knowledge or more systems that will tell you why things are the way they are. You will never truly know an elephant by only studying it in books or even watching a movie about it. If you truly want to KNOW an elephant go out and meet one. The same holds true of the Self. You will never know you Self by listening to the next guru and then the next one and then the next one. They will only fill your cup more and more while the way to true knowledge of the self is to EMPTY the cup. In fact those little shifts we talked about appear exactly in those empty spaces. It cannot spontaneously erupt in an inner world full of clutter. This will be one of your greatest challenges (it certainly is for me) namely to stop doing! You cannot experience BEING by doing! You experience being by becoming being and that for the most part means becoming still by moving into the eye of the hurricane. Start to simplify (without being simplistic) for less is more in the inner world. The most dominant messages in our outer world are that more create more. Therefore we tend to believe that we need more to create more in the inner world too. I am not even sure it that holds true in the outer world, but in the inner world it certainly does not.

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

The challenge is that simple is not always easy. In fact most of us find simple to be very difficult. We long to complicate things. The funny thing is that it is our very tendency to not been able to see our own “I” that also lead to our tendency to complicate everything. Are you ready for the next secret?

SECRET FIVE

In order to discover happiness, peace and power within you need to be persistent in your inner growth practices.

Yes I know. This secret is hardly a secret, but it is one of the most overlooked reasons why people struggle to discover happiness, peace and power for themselves. When you are running on the treadmill of life and you become addicted to it, it is extremely difficult to get off even for a brief moment to turn within. When we first experience that little shift that direct our attention from the outer world to the inner world we may have a great desire to experience more of the inner world. But the truth is the moment that little shift takes place a huge counter-reaction also is set in motion within us that resists this shift in our attention. The root of this counter-reaction is our shadow.

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

Our shadow is the part of ourselves that we have pushed outside our own awareness. It is the bits of ourselves that we have disowned and we don’t like. Our shadow is our cataracts and our bright coloured lenses and dark shades that colour the way we see the world out there. The shadow hates to become into of our awareness. It desperately wants to stay in the shadows. It likes to hide away and it doesn’t want to be exposed to the light of our awareness. The shadow protects itself with deep emotions that we often find overwhelming. It could be both positive and negative emotions. These positive and negative emotions very often are the driver of our addictions. It is the energy that makes us go round and round the same treadmill again and again even though it may be destructive to ourselves, others and our natural environment. The deep emotions of the shadow can be very scary in deed. They are actually the dragon that guards the gate to the infinite riches that lay within us.

Many of children stories refer to this part of our human nature. These stories will very often have a dragon that needs to be killed in order for the prince to marry the princess. One aspect of the discovery our true inner
To Follow Me On Twitter Please go to http://www.twitter.com/rouxmalan

Seven Secrets to lasting Peace, Power & Happiness by Johannes. R. Malan http://www.peacepowerpath.com Copyright 2009

peace, power and happiness is the slaying of the dragon of our shadow side. It means that we need to learn to accept the parts of ourselves that we have rejected in the past. We need to acknowledge that this part is indeed a part of me. Until we do that our outer life is often driven by this shadow part of ourselves and we do not even recognise it. It is hidden in the shadows and it becomes the lens through which we look at the world. It covers our “eye” so that we see this dragon everywhere. For instance if our inner dragon is full of anger we will encounter a lot of angry people in our outer life. If the inner dragon is filled with fear we will encounter and experience fear in many different areas of our life. So why do I share this long story about the inner dragon? Well the inner dragon explains why so few people are able to be persistent in their inner growth practices. Each time we practice our inner growth practices we are in fact encountering our inner dragons. Once you see a dragon with a fiery head and burning eyes and with a blazing fire bursting from its tongue you are not very likely to return. Let me be clear I am not talking about a real dragon here. You will not see a real dragon when you turn within. Don’t worry about that. It is just a word picture to describe the experience we all have when we turn within. Why would any one want to fight a dragon when you can easily just stay away from it and continue on the treadmill of life? Well sometimes we are forced by the outer circumstances of our lives to confront our dragons. If that doesn’t happen it maybe our sheer determination and hope that there is more to life than the treadmill that inspires us to take the journey within. The inner journey and the riches of inner happiness, power and peace are well worth our attention. The only thing is that we can’t expect to discover those riches if we do not regularly turn

within by means of inner growth practices that create the environment in which the discoveries of our inner riches can immerge. The existence of our inner dragons also partly explains the reason for the next secret. SECRET SIX

Very few people ever find the persistence and perseverance needed and therefore few people discover true peace, happiness and power within their lifetime.

I don’t think I have to argue this point with you too much. You only need to turn on the television and listen to the news or read the newspaper to find out how many people in this world are living without inner power, happiness and peace. You can look at your own life and how long it took you to start to discover the secrets I am sharing with you. I am still on the road too. I am still discovering new aspects to these very secrets that I share with you in this special report. Maybe you are still so invested and immersed in the outer world that you are full of restlessness, unhappiness and that you feel powerless to change it all. If that is the case you are a case in point. If you are still happily invested in the outer world and that is where you happiness come from you are still due for a rude awakening. The awakening may come during your life time or it may even only knock on your door at the moment of death. Now I don’t say this to judge you or

anybody else in any way. I know there are some views that give our human tendency to blind ourselves from the truth the name “sin” or “ignorance”. These words maybe helpful, but they can also be unhelpful in that they may give us the idea that there is something “wrong” or “unnatural” in this state of human affairs. The truth is that this fact of our humanity (our tendency to have a blindspot) is neither good nor bad. It is just the way things are. We don’t need to judge it in order to “cure” it. We only need to see it for what it is. The problem is when we start to judge it we also create the need to develop elaborative systems of WHY it is the case. Questions arise: “Why are humans blinded from there own “I”? or in the more negative frameworks: “Why are humans sinful or ignorant?” I prefer not to try to answer these questions, because ultimately answers to those kinds of questions remain speculative at best unless you take for granted that certain books are more special than others. If you do find it helpful to speculate or to accept absolute answers to these questions please feel free to do so. I will focus more on the practical side of things here. In order to start little shifts you don’t need to delve into the why’s. All you need to recognise and become aware of are your own tendency toward blindspotted-ness. Just see it with out judgement. It is just the way things are. So why do I share this with you? I share it with you to help you understand why it is that only the minority turn within rather than the majority. We all have a tendency to look for answers without. It is much easier than to turn within. Secondly as we have discussed in the previous secret turning within can be extremely scary. So the majority of humanity rather stay on the treadmill unaware that there is indeed a better way. Again there is no judgment in this. It is just the way things are! It is difficult indeed difficult for the “eye” to see itself. So it is just

natural that it will only be the minority who turns the “eye” inward and have a look inside. Most of us will take a peep and then we get so scared that we stay away from turning within for the rest of our life. It is just the way things are. But we are seeing a new tendency today in that more and more people are discovering the value of turning within for answers. The reason for this is that the more people travel along this road the easier it becomes for others to do the same. We have a long human history during which a minority of individuals travelled on the road towards the inner “I” and they were the pioneers who opened up this path to discover true inner happiness, peace and power for ourselves. Still, even today, it is only a few who find the courage to continue on this path of discovery. The path to selfdiscovery can sometimes be painful and a little hard. Luckily it is the lasting fruits of peace, power and happiness that we discover on this path that inspires us to keep going. The riches that are waiting to be discovered within are totally unfathomable.

SECRET SEVEN

You can be one of the few who travels down the path of inner discovery and become happy, peaceful and powerful.

Let me tell you the biggest secret of all. The biggest secret is that there is no secret. In some inner traditions they use little statements that will confuse the mind and lead to a little shift in the inner world. These statements are called koans. I truly believe that this is the ultimate koan: The biggest secret of life is that there is no secret. Keep thinking about that statement for a while. Turn it over and over in your mind. There is a secret and the secret is that there is not secret. Everything that I have told you thus far only SEEMS to be a secret because of our human tendency to see only out there and not in here. I do believe though that on a deeper level we are ALL aware of this “secret”. The only reason why we don’t seem to know about it is because we are in a state of “forgetfulness”. We have ALL “forgotten” the age old secret of true happiness, peace and power. So when someone shares the “secret” with us it is almost as if a little light goes on within ourselves and we say “oh, yes now I remember!”. At first we only vaguely remember. Almost like when we see someone that we haven’t seen for ages. It takes a while for our memory to return. Turning within is kind off the same experience. How delighted we are when we fully recognise the true secret

of inner happiness, peace and power again. We suddenly start to realise how we have kept ourselves restless, discontented and disempowered. Suddenly we realise that this restlessness, this discontentedness and this disempowerment was only a dream. When we wake up to our true inner power, happiness and peace this will all become clear to us. You can wake up from the running of the treadmill too. You can also experience the little shifts of awareness that slowly move your power, your happiness and your peace from their dependence on outer circumstances to their true inner home. You have all the power to peacefully engage your inner dragons in order to discover that they are indeed the true harbingers of your happiness. All you need to do is to turn within and to enter the inner world through your blind spot. It sounds nearly impossible, but many pioneers have developed vehicles for the journey within. You can join them and become one of those who make it a little easier for others to find their inner happiness, peace and power too. I certainly hope that the little travelling on this journey that I have shared with you in this special report will make it easier for you to start and persist on this incredible journey of discovery. Our world is in need of this inner journey right now.
