No More Problems – Ever!

happy

Can You Imagine This?

Can you imagine living the rest of your life without any problems? Okay, so you can imagine it, but do you believe it is possible for you to never have another problem for the rest of your life? This is not a rhetorical question. Please answer it. And, reader, know that I am not talking about merely being able to better cope with problems, but actually having no problems at all.

Too Comfortable With Problems

It seems that we’ve snuggled up too comfortably with the idea of having problems such that the thought of having no problems causes a brain freeze. You probably even know some people who need problems to work on as a reason to crawl out of bed in the morning.

Let’s not forget about that other group of people – the ones who think, “If I am really faithful to my spiritual practice, one day I’ll reach the point where I will never have problems to deal with.” Minus the time element (and other dualisms), there is some Truth to this idea.

Get This Right And The Rest Is Simple

Reader, answer these two questions: Who has problems? Does God have problems? The answer is obvious. Human beings, not God Being, have problems.

Humans, not God, have health problems. Humans, not God, have relationship problems. Humans have financial problems. (I’ve got to stop here, because I’m having a “problem” completing this list.)

Try this. If you seem to be in the cold, clamping grip of some problem, rather than praying with a focus on your suffering, ask your God Self, “Does God know anything about this problem?” Wait for an answer. Repeat if necessary! If you do this, you will never waste your prayer time seeking God to do something about a thing God knows nothing of. Let’s move on.

De-Humanize Yourself

If it is the human that seems to have these problems, then the solution to a life riddled with problems is to de-humanize yourself. This is a matter of revelation and realization where you realize that your Self (body included) includes no human element whatsoever. The process is simple.

Ask this one question of your God Self: “Who Am I?” Ask and listen. Repeat daily until the answer is revealed. There is one catch. You must be willing to suspend every human, mortal idea of yourself. Ideas such as:

  • race
  • gender
  • nationality
  • age (birthdays)
  • genetics
  • height, weight
  • etc.

Note, I said that you must be willing to surrender these ideas. With this one simple willingness, revelations concerning the Truth of your Identity are certain.

The paradox (as I’m sure you have already realized) is that you have never been human. Even in the thick of your seeming problems, you have never had a human experience. You have never had a problem. Only in the illusion has humanhood appeared to be. God Is All. All Is God.

This Is The Best Way To Live (Don’t You Agree?)

To win the victory over sickness and suffering is not the best proof of God’s Allness. To never be sick in the first place is better proof.

To triumph over financial lack is not the best proof of God’s Infinite Substance. To never experience a moment of lack is better proof.

To finally succeed after years of failure is not the best proof of God’s Completeness (Success). To never fail is better proof.

You Don’t Need Jams To Prove God’s Allness

Too many people seem to think that getting out of a thorny jam is a trophy-worthy demonstration of God’s Allness. I met a man who appears to court trouble just to prove his understanding of God’s Allness.

If you came out of a jam unscathed, that’s wonderful. But there is a better way – a higher way! Reader, lift your vision high – above trials, tribulations and troubles – to where God Is All. From this vantage point, can you see that the best demonstration of God’s Allness is to never be in trouble?

Living From Glory To Glory

Rather than triumphing over troubles, expect a life of moving from glory to glory. That’s the best proof of God’s Allness. After all, God is the only presence, power, activity, and evidence. And you already know that there is no trouble in God, and no God in trouble.

Have A Talk With Yourself

Don’t be afraid to tell yourself the Truth. In a quiet moment, speak courageously and confidently to yourself. Tell yourself, “I know that God Is All, and that All Is God. I don’t need to be miraculously pulled out of trouble’s steely clutches to know that God Is All. God does not need to be proved. Because God Is All, it is my right to live a trouble-free life.”

No Guilt Allowed

If you seem to be in trouble, don’t whip yourself with cords of guilt. The purpose of this writing is not to induce guilt, but rather

  • to consider the fact that you do not need trouble(s) in order to “prove” your understanding of God.
  • to consider that because God Is All, it is possible to live a trouble-free life.
  • to lift your vision higher than trouble-based praying.

Help Me Find This Other Mind

Searching But Not Finding

I apologize for being late posting this entry, but I’ve been busy searching for something. Just to verify a rumor, I’ve been searching high and low for this “other mind” that people keep talking about. I cannot find it.

But You Said There Is Only One

Many Absolutists heartily proclaim “O’ I know there is only one presence.” And then in a few more breaths, they speak about folk who don’t understand this Truth, and folk who are not quite ready for this Truth. They even talk of folk with a lesser consciousness. All this translates to two or more minds. Consider what follows.

The false belief that there are some folk walking around this “kingdom of heaven” not ready to hear the Absolute Truth implies that there is a Mind that is not the Absolute Truth — not God. Whenever I hear someone say, “Allen, some people are not ready for this Truth,” I think to myself that they need to sit down and examine exactly what they mean when they say, “God is the only Presence.” How do they define “only”?

What Does Only Mean To You?

When they say only, do they mean existing with no other, or do they mean existing with a few others? Webster’s dictionary defines only as “existing with no other,” and that’s what I mean when I say God is the only Presence.

Not only is everyone ready to hear this Truth, but everyone is already present as this Truth and is actually conscious of Being this Truth. If they were not, God Consciousness would not be the only Consciousness. God would not be the only presence.

If you think someone is not ready for the Absolute, be certain that you know there is only ONE and ONE ALONE, and that YOU ARE THIS ONE. Then, and only then, is it clear to see that everyone is this ONE, and only this ONE.

One Alone

Recently I’ve gotten very clear on the importance of being absolutely Absolute. If dualism is allowed to blossom in one arena of your awareness and experience, it seems to drop seeds in other areas. Of course, the seeming is never the reality, but sometimes the pain seems real. All this can be avoided, by recognizing and acknowledging just ONE and ONE ALONE.

The One Thing You Should Never Watch

Watch sunsets,
Watch sunrises,
Watch people,
Watch stars,
Watch clouds,
Watch the smile on a baby’s face.
Watch whatever you want.
But whatever you watch, don’t watch your thinking. Thoughts are not power.
GOD IS.

What To Do About This Material Sense Of Body

Thanks to Darcio (a blog family member from Brazil), I was inspired to dust off a book I haven’t read in ages by Arthur Corey. Below is an excerpt from his Christian Science Class Instruction

The claim is made that, although man may be spiritual and perfect in his true being, he has here another body – one that is material and imperfect. The thing that extinguishes an erroneous sense of body is the realization that he hasn’t got another body.

Realizing that this which appears to be a material body is exempt from the restrictions of finite belief, perfect body is manifested in exact ratio. The only material body you could have would be the belief that the body is material. You cannot dispose of a material sense of body as though it were a thing , but you must transcend it; and this ascension appears as a constantly improved bodily estate.

You cannot die out of a material body, you must live out of it.

Are You Waiting For A Miracle?

Taking Out The Trash

There are some words that no longer fit in our vocabulary. They need to be uprooted and permanently eliminated immediately. At the top of the list is the word tomorrow. And while you are uprooting it, don’t miss its siblings: soon, later, become, progress and improve. They usually hover very close to tomorrow.

Some Time(ly) Questions

Reader, I have a few questions to ask you. Do you think that with each prayer – each contemplation – things will get better? Do you believe that with longer or more frequent meditations you will become more enlightened? Do you think that in time your healing or long-awaited miracle will finally happen?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have just a few more questions to ask you. What about today? Isn’t God All today — now? Will God become more “All” tomorrow because you contemplated? Isn’t what you call “spiritual progress” actually a flat-out denial of the HERE and NOW of God and all that God is?

Now God Is All

Please allow me just two more questions. Do you think your Consciousness (which actually is God being Conscious) can become more enlightened than it is right now? Isn’t the belief in future enlightenment denying God to be the ONLY MIND and CONSCIOUSNESS?

All is God and God is All – now. There’s no becoming and progressing to this Allness. Reader, you are this Allness in living, loving action. Contemplate this and let Consciousness reveal even more of that which already IS.

The One Thing You Must Get (Let)

God Is All Allen White

“With all thy getting get understanding.”

These are the words of Solomon from the Book of Proverbs.

Because you are reading this blog, I know you rank spiritual understanding somewhere up there near breathing and eating — or at least in your top 5 priorities.

Spiritual Understanding Made Easy

Reader, don’t you feel there is something unnatural — something wrong — with this lifelong pursuit of spiritual understanding? Don’t you wish, if not think, that spiritual understanding should be as effortless as eating and breathing? If you feel this way, you are onto something BIG. Spiritual understanding should be easy and effortless, and it is. Keep reading.

  1. Spiritual understanding is not something to be sought like a university degree. It is not something to be found like dollars on a sidewalk. Spiritual understanding (the understanding of the Spirit of God) is God knowing Itself. This being so, spiritual understanding is the natural and normal state of the entire Universe. (That sentence is begging you for quiet contemplation.) Spiritual understanding is an eternal constant. Spiritual understanding is not what you get; it is what you are. You are God Knowing Itself in living, loving action.
  2. The value of silent prayer, where there is no aim to fix and repair, is that in a moment of stillness your natural understanding asserts itself. You know as God knows, because you consciously experience God knowing Itself as your Self. So in all matters of Spirit, relax. There is no understanding out there to get, but there is plenty to let. Paul said, “Let that same mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…” It already is. Just let it announce Itself.

Put Your Heart Into This For Seven Days

For the next seven days, try contemplating these two statements:

  • Spiritual Understanding is Omnipresent.
  • I Am Spiritual Understanding.

Contemplating these two ideas will open up a floodgate of Revelation. Some spiritual facts will be startlingly clear to you and force you to reconsider this wonderful world. Try it and see!

How Many Problems Do You Have?

"Be still and know that I am God"

This is a follow-up to a previous post (So Many Things To Pray About) that partially answered the question “How do you pray when you have so many things to pray about?”

Rather than take you on the scenic route, let’s go straight to the answer. YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS – NONE!

Just One Problem And That’s Debatable

Take a deep breath, and continue reading. The idea that you have a truckload of problems to pray over is a lie. There is only one SEEMING problem that is disguised as a truckload of problems, and that one problem is the idea that there is something going on in your life other than the Presence, Power, and Activity of Love (God). Reader, isn’t that what the real issue is?

So, take the next step. You know that there is only One Presence and only One Power. Necessarily, there must be only One Mind. You may have called it “my mind”, “his mind”, “her mind”, but these personal tags are only distortions of the Infinite, Indivisible Mind that is God.

Are You Sure You’re Aware Of A Problem?

What does this One Mind know? What can it know but One Presence and One Power? Do you think this One Mind (God) knows anything about a difficulty? See for yourself!

In silent listening prayer, ask your Self these two questions:

  1. “What mind exists that believes there is a presence and power other than God?”
  2. “What mind exists that is aware of these problems?”

Reader, the power is not in the questioning. The power is in the listening. Here is a word of caution: DO NOT MAKE UP YOUR OWN ANSWERS!

The Guarantee

You many have to ask and listen many times, but the revealed answer makes it all worthwhile. I guarantee that once you follow the above suggestions, and once you ask and experience the answer to the above questions, you will:

  • never be knocked off your feet by a seeming problem
  • never feel victimized by life
  • know how to handle any problem that seems to come up
  • have extended days of blissful living

God Is All E-Course Is Ready


Just a few words about the E-Course. If you have ever taken an e-mail course, you know that the biggest problem is that you may get some lessons and you may not.

To avoid this unnecessary complication, I’ve been advised to make the E-Course a simple, plain-text course.

What Are You Saying That You Are Seeing?

I could hear that his heart was in every word when he said, “Allen, I’m sick and tired of seeing sickness and death. I just don’t know what to do.” If you were listening in, you would have rolled on the floor laughing at my feeble attempts to answer him. I was having a hard time because I was trying to be sensitive to his seeming plight, and at the same time share a word of Truth. No one says what I was trying to say better than Lillian DeWaters in her book “The Time Is At Hand.” Below is the excerpt – a long excerpt.

When, apparently, one sees injury and hears discord are his senses reporting correctly and truly or are they reporting otherwise? Does the reader feel capable of answering this question readily, accurately and understandingly?

Some say, “My physical senses are reporting inharmony but my spiritual senses are recognizing Reality.” Now those who speak of the Senses as being physical are in need of deeper insight and a scientific mode of expression.

Another may answer, “My senses are spiritual, but they are reporting untruly, for they are seeing an accident.” Here one is deciding inconsistently, for how could perfect Senses report imperfectly?

The facts are these: The spiritual Senses (and there are no others), are always reporting correctly and truly, for Perfection is forever manifesting and registering Perfection.

Someone asks, “When I see an accident are not my eyes telling me so? Are they not witnessing the injury?” No. Your Eyes, being spiritual and perfect, are seeing no accident whatsoever.

If while walking in the twilight, one mistakes a post for a tramp are his eyes reporting the post or the tramp? Pictured on the eyes is the post, for this is what is present. The eyes are not reporting a tramp, for the simple reason that none is present.

Likewise, when one reports that the coiled shape on the floor is a serpent his eyes are not deceived. His eyes are seeing the rope but his mind is falsifying the evidence.

Turn again to the original question which was this: When, apparently, one sees injury and hears discord are his senses reporting correctly and truly or are they reporting otherwise? Now clearly discern its correct answer which is: “My Senses are reporting truly and correctly, and they are seeing and hearing the Glory and Harmony of the perfect Universe.

It is erring mind, or human sense, (not Senses), which weaves the illusion, just as when the picture of a tramp appears instead of the actual outline of the post. Since it(human sense) believes in accidents, in injuries and disasters the mind declares that it seems them, but it is practicing a deception upon itself, and is thus a victim to its own illusions.
