About Us

Universal Serenity was founded as a ministry to help reduce fear in society. Fear has often been called an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real and it has been found to be a very true assessment.

Most fears are based on wrong data and incorrect assessment of a situation. Universal Serenity takes a two pronged approach to this overwhelming fear experienced in society:

  1. Introduction of correct data where wrong data was relied upon, and
  2. Exercises to enable a person to evaluate all possible option and not concentrating on those that pull in fear.

Synthetic Happiness

"The world is AS we SEE it."

"We create our own reality."

"We attract into our lives what we put attention on."

If you have looked into alternative ways to view the world you have certainly come across those idea, promoted by many of the main stream new age gurus. Science usually had nothing much to say about that as there was not much to measure and science is supposed to be about the measurability of phenomena.

And how can you measure something if the result is not only effected by the measurer but indeed created alltogether?

Now we have TED come to help us. TED, the yearly conference on Technology, Entertainment and Design, held in Monterey, California (now moving to other places) gives speakers the opportunity to speak about their area of expertize for 20 minutes. Speakers are often not the usual suspects, and I have been surprised by the subjects presented.

Today I ran into a speech by Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert who says our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong. He supports this premise with intriguing research, and explains it in in an accessible and unexpected fashion.

What he is actually giving is the scientific confirmation that all those new age gurus are correct.

Enjoy...

Now comes Matthieu Ricard, sometimes called the "happiest man in the world," he is a Buddhist monk, author, photographer and apparently practitioner of the subject discussed in Dan Gilbert's talk...

 

Practice Universal Serenity

Is Universal Serenity really attainable?

We have to answer this question with a resounding YES! Otherwise this web site would not make too much sense, wouldn't it?

But with all your current struggles and challenges in life how could it be possible to reach a state in which you would feel total serenity irregardless of your external conditions? The answer is - practice.

Take a body-builder. He might start out as an average guy, with the one difference that he has the drive to transform his body into this machine of muscles and tendons. So he starts practicing. He probably will have to practice for several years before he reaches his goal, but the main point is that he makes his decision and then STARTS!

That is step number one - a step without none of the other steps will happen. Then he tales the next step, which is pretty much the same as the first. Then the third, fourth and so on. At one point he actually might stop counting and just do his exercises. Obviously he has to see some progress towards his goal to be able to do so.

And then he reaches his goal.

It is the same if you intend to reach a mental or spiritual state that initially seems unreachable, but if divided into smaller steps - starting with the very first - you WILL reach that goal, as long as you stay with it. Again, you will need some form of intermediate successes to keep you going.

Within 'Universal Serenity' you will find the exercises to make your first step and keep taking the following steps to reach that goal. The successes you will experience on the way will be spectacular, but don't worry, you will get used to it.

We wanted to get this site going as soon as possible, so you have arrived here before it is actually complete, but you can still get in touch with us, to get on the mailing list and maybe just ask some questions you might have.

We are working feverishly to get this site done, so please stick with it and we'll talk soon!

Peace and Serenity
