Answered Questions About The Prayer Project

In a story you shared in “The Prayer Project”, you called job hunting an ungodly practice. Why?

I was in my twenties, living at home, and I had to find work. The typical job search didn’t feel right. I thought, “Why would an all-powerful God, who loves me, require me to scurry about pounding the pavement and rummaging through want ads to find employment? Couldn’t this all-powerful, loving God just give me a job? I know my mother would.”

Each time I thought about getting up early every morning and suiting up for the job search, it triggered thoughts such as: “The Bible says it’s God’s pleasure to give me the kingdom. A job should be a piece of cake.”

I knew I had to do something, so the thing that I did was pray to better understand the Oneness of Existence and the oneness of employer and employee. Reader, once I took this step, I have never had to search for a job. They have literally been handed to me.

The typical job search is based on the ungodly idea of twoness and separation. That’s why I called job hunting an ungodly practice.

Why these new “audio events”?

At one time I enjoyed an active lecture schedule, and suddenly it came to a screeching halt. The invitations halted and I screeched!

At my last lecture in Arizona, Libby (a student and friend of J. Goldsmith) asked me to dinner. Slowly, each word carefully thought out before spoken, she said, “Allen, I’ve heard them all, and you are the best out there, but you will never be as successful as _____.” Matching her slow, careful speech, I asked, “Why not?” “Because,” she said, “you don’t want followers. You don’t set yourself up as a leader seeking followers. These people want to follow someone, and you don’t play that game.”

Whether Libby was right or wrong, all I know is that the invitations to lecture dried up like a sponge in the summer sun.

With these audio events, I can still reach people around the world with the Absolute message of God’s Allness. Of course I miss the lecture tour, yet the audio events are fun too.

What’s Next?

“How To Pray Effectively For Others” will be the follow-up audio event to The Prayer Project”. It will be available in June or July.

What is Scubbly, and why are you selling “The Prayer Project” on Scubbly?

Scubbly is a service provider for anyone selling downloadable products. Here’s why I chose Scubbly:

  • Trusted site score of 100
  • Reliable and dependable
  • Fair pricing model
  • Accepts Paypal
  • Allows me to sell audio and video events at affordable prices

What suggestions do you have for those who purchased “The Prayer Project”?

Two listens. The first listen is to satisfy your curiosity. The second listen is a more deliberate listen. Have a pen and pad on hand when listening the second time. Write down every prayer suggestion you hear. After you’ve done that, ACT ON THE SUGGESTIONS.

An important suggestion in this audio event is near the beginning where the suggestion is given how to identify yourself in order to “pray without ceasing.” It is impossible to follow this suggestion and not experience spontaneous revelation throughout the day (and night).

Is “The Prayer Project” available as a cd?

Not yet. Currently it is only available as a downloadable mp3 file that you can put on your computer, phone, tablet, or other audio device.

This Is What Happens When Your Body Is Healed

A reader asked this question:

“If my mortal appearing body appears to be sick, and through spiritual insight it is healed and appears as a well mortal body, isn’t the well mortal body just as unreal as the sick, mortal body? And doesn’t this make a well appearing mortal body as undesirable as a sick appearing mortal body?

Yes! and No! The mortal appearing body is nothing but the Immortal Body mis-perceived. (I really don’t like this word, but it helps in the explanation.) The sick, mortal body is the Whole, Immortal Body mis-perceived. This Immortal Body – your Body – consists of the Light that is the Presence of God.

Pay attention to this! When the body seems to be healed, what stays and what goes? Reader, it helps to answer this question aloud.

The disease appears to go, but the Body remains. The Body remains because the Body is real. It does exist. Your Body is Real! The disease, however, (perceived to be nothing) no longer seems to be.

What has happened here? When the mortal body appears to be healed, the Immortal Body (of pure Light and God Substance) shows forth a little more clearly. Had the awareness of the Immortal Body been totally complete, it would have shown forth as a Body of Pure Light – not merely a “healed” Body.

Never deny your Body. Never accept mortal lies about your Body.

What Do These Have In Common?

God Is All - Oneness

Scenario #1

The phone rang. When I answered, a trembling voice said in hushed tones, “Allen, I’m afraid. I’m about to lose my home, and I don’t know what to do.”

Scenario #2

One evening I spoke with a man who punched and whipped himself with a flurry of self-condemning and self-hating words. I thought to myself, I sure hope he’s sitting down, because no one could stand after a beating like this.

He whined and moaned about how long it was taking him to make spiritual progress – if he made any at all.

Scenario #3

A woman sat across from me at the café table. Usually all bubbly and sizzling with positivity, she sat there flat as a glass of day-old champagne. She was facing a health challenge that seemed hopeless.

From our conversation, it sounded like she had resigned herself to a life of unimaginable suffering and certain death.

The Only Mind Knows Only God

Read these scenarios once again. Can you guess the one thing they have in common? And while you are in the question answering mode, below are three more questions:

  1. With what mind was the first woman feeling fearful?
  2. What mind (in the second case) was self-condemning and struggling for enlightenment?
  3. What mind was hopeless?

You are right if you answered none at all. GOD KNOWING ITSELF TO BE ALL is the only Mind that knows anything. It is the only Mind that exists. This Mind (which is your Mind right now) knows the constancy of abundant Supply. This Mind knows that birthless, deathless, ageless, timeless, perfect Substance is the only Substance. This Mind is the constancy of illumined Perception.

What Is Happening vs. What Seems To Be Happening

Let’s go back to that one common thing in each scenario. I’m sure you guessed it already, but here it is: While each seemed to be happening, they weren’t happening at all. God is all that is going on – always.

This post is a springboard for the next post which is an All Hands On Deck post.

If You Can’t Say This, You’re Just Spinning Your Wheels

The Most Subtle Form Of Dualism

Every writer of the Absolute agrees that all of our seeming troubles stem from a false belief that there is another presence and power beside God. The word we give to this diabolical belief is dualism –the belief in twoness.

Haven’t you heard someone emphatically say, “I know there is only one presence, and I know there is only one power,” yet in the next breath they confess, “But I cannot say I am God.”? This is a most subtle form of dualism, and it needs to be completely wiped out of awareness.

Reader, if you are not God you must be some presence other than God. This idea has to scare the bejesus out of you for two reasons: (1) It flings open the door to every seeming form of trouble imaginable. (2) It reveals that God is not really all to you.

Wiping Out The Human Sense Of Your Identity

Just thinking I am God gives some people a sudden attack of dry heaves. Why? Here’s what I’ve been told: “It’s blasphemy. How, with all my faults, flaws, and foibles, can I say I am God?” Translation: How dare I elevate my humanity to divinity!

You can’t, and you don’t! The born i (and its entire human history) is not the I that you are. You cannot elevate the born i. However, you can realize its nothingness. You can eliminate it from your awareness by claiming the unborn I as your only I. The finite, time-space bound i is not the I that you are. You cannot elevate this i, but you can eliminate it from your awareness by claiming the Infinite, Eternal I as your only I. The I that you are does not need lifting. It only needs recognition and acceptance.

Claiming the Infinite, Eternal, Omnipresent I as the I that You Are is how you completely eliminate dualism.

All Of A Sudden It Was Over

I Had To Get Out Of This Dark Place

You won’t believe this. Last Sunday afternoon I nosedived into a dark and gloomy state of depression. For an hour, I rolled and wallowed around in this dark “mental” funk. I wanted to talk to someone, so I picked up the phone and called a good friend. After rushing through the social courtesies, I warned “Today is your lucky day. I don’t usually do this, but I’ve got to vent.” She endured my venting for a blink-of-the-eye moment. (I didn’t expect much more.) Then, she took a courageous stab or two at lifting my spirits. She didn’t.

And It Didn’t Take Long

I hung up and hurriedly crawled back to that dark place. Reader, I don’t frequent this place. My visits are few and years between. While sitting in my favorite chair, staring at the wall, that line from the blog I posted on August 19 – Don’t Try To Still Your Mind whispered to me: “This is not Mind. It is not me.” I realized that the mind thinking these thoughts and feeling this way is not Mind (God). Therefore it is no part of me. It was like someone snatched a black towel from over my eyes. All was Light and laughter, and I never went back to that dark place.

Reader – dark, depressing, negative thoughts are not Mind. They are not you. “You are the Light of the world.”

The Great Escape (Part 2)

quote-meditation-is-the-dissolution-of-thoughts-in-eternal-awareness-or-pure-consciousness-without-voltaire-191179

All You Need To Know About The Human Mind

A reader asked this question: “Is it ever really possible to stop thinking?” The answer is yes … and no. By way of thinking, the so-called human mind is hunting for a “Formula for Living” – a formula for safety, security, happiness and success. Because it can never find this formula, the human mind never stops thinking. Sometimes it thinks fear thoughts. Sometimes worry thoughts. Sometimes it thinks, “I can’t,” and “I will never” thoughts. Like red pepper flakes on a slice of pepperoni pizza, there are smidgens and sprinkles of “good” thoughts.

The human mind bases all of its busy-body thinking on the notion that time and space separates everything and everyone. This, of course, is a lie. There is only ONE INSEPARABLE, INDIVISIBLE PRESENCE – GOD. The formula that the so-called human mind is searching for rests in the awareness of ONENESS. Since the human mind starts with twoness, it can never find the formula that it seeks. So, it keeps thinking, and thinking, and thinking.

Knowing Without Thinking

Reader, don’t let all that I’ve written disturb you. Fortunately, the human mind and all the thoughts it thinks are not real. The entire kit and caboodle doesn’t exist. Stop trying to stop thinking. Take a slow, deep breath and relax in the comforting message that follows.

There is a Mind, and this Mind is All. This Mind, or Awareness, is YOU. It’s completely impersonal and indivisible. This Mind is activity, and the activity that it is cannot be stopped. If it could, the entire universe would cease to exist.

THIS MIND, THAT IS YOU, DOES NOT THINK. It has never thought one single thought. And yet this Mind is always aware. It is all knowledge. What does this Mind know? It knows Itself to be All. This is the full extent of Mind’s knowing.

Reader, can you see that this all-knowing Mind (that is All) has no need to search for Life’s Formula? It has no need to think fear thoughts, worry thoughts, lack thoughts, and all the other thoughts based on the fiction of a presence and power other than Itself? This Mind that I am writing about is YOU – the one and only YOU.

Your Mind In Active Stillness

Once you realize that there is only one Mind, and that this Mind is All, you will first notice a change in the quality of the thoughts you “think”. Mind surges and soars with spontaneous happy, joy-filled thoughts. Worry-wart thoughts are far and few between. Confident “I can” thoughts replace “I can’t” thoughts. “I am able” thoughts overthrow the “But I don’t know how” thoughts. When you look at your neighbor, your spouse, your co-worker, you think “This one that I see is the living Truth.” You didn’t try to think the thought because you ought to. The idea just popped up like a jack-in-the-box.

Reader, perhaps you have already had this experience. During your morning contemplation, you sit down to contemplate a spiritual Truth. Maybe it’s “I and the Father are one,” or “God is love.” At first it seems you are directing and controlling the contemplation. You are conducting the movement of ideas. Then … the contemplation takes on a life of its own. You are no longer conducting the symphony of ideas that flood Consciousness. Instead of thinking, there is the activity of knowing. Just for a moment, it seems as though you are going along for this joyous ride. Then … you experience yourself BEING the contemplation. All the while, you experience an indescribable peace. There is a flood tide of ideas, but no thinking. What’s happening here?

Have you ever seen a bicycle wheel spin so fast that it seems the spokes are not moving at all? There is activity, but it appears as stillness. In contemplations as described above, Mind – your Mind – is whizzing with (as) activity. Yet, it seems still as a frozen lake. This seeming stillness is experienced as a calm, effortless knowing. This is Mind at its all-knowing best – without thinking.

Is this experience confined to a prayer nook? No! Believe me. While you are out and about your day, you can and will have moments of sudden, spontaneous, all-absorbing contemplation. Because Mind is awareness, you will be aware of any and every thing that you need to be aware of to carry on safely. And, the indescribable bliss will seem to transport you to another world. You are active, moving, carrying on your affairs without thinking. The moment may be fleeting as a few breaths, but that’s enough to let you know of greater things to come.

The short answer to the reader’s question is: No, it is not possible to stop the human mind from thinking. Yes, it is possible to know the nothingness of the human mind and the somethingness of God Mind. And yes, it is possible to know without thinking and to experience this as a living fact.

Why You Do The Things You Do (Spiritually)

Excerpt from Sounds Of The Trumpet

Reader, have every confidence that your reason for seeking Truth is because you are already Truth. Your attraction to things of the Spirit is because you are already Spirit. It is because you are already the Truth that you respond so warmly and affectionately to the Absolute. It is because you are already the Truth that you have moments of silence where you are free from even the appearance of a mythical world of evil, loss, and lack.

It is only because you are already whole that you have ever bothered to pray for a healing. It is because the kingdom has already been given you that you have ever prayed for any good thing. Cease reversing the Truth, thinking that you pray because you lack. IT IS BECAUSE GOD REALLY IS ALL, ALL CONSCIOUSNESS AND ALL MANIFESTATION, THAT GLORIOUS LIVING IS NOW INEVITABLE FOR YOU AND EVERY IDENTITY IN THIS VAST UNIVERSE.

The Great Escape — From Mortal Mind To God Mind

Great-Escape-e1363913918274

As you read this post, accept the FACT that the Mind that is reading it, the Mind that wrote it, and the Mind that is God are (is) the same Mind.

Every now and again someone calls and asks a question (or two) that is so arresting, the world seems to freeze for a few seconds. Such was the case when a woman called and asked these two questions:

  1. “How do you get out of the monkey-mind (mortal mind) into God Mind?”
  2. “Is it ever really possible to stop thinking?”

Reader, I’m sure you will agree with me that it’s best to devote an entire post to each question. So let’s dive right into the first question: “How do you get out of the monkey-mind (mortal mind) into God Mind?”

It would be easier for an elephant to tightrope over the Grand Canyon on a sewing thread than for anyone to get out of the mortal mind into God Mind. If you’ve tried this great escape, you know it ain’t easy.

To get out of the mortal mind, it first has to exist. Believing that the mortal mind exists when it doesn’t is the reason many have unsuccessfully struggled to make this great escape. God is All, and God is the only Mind (Awareness) that exists. Right now, reader, search yourself and be sure you haven’t merely dressed up the Christian devil in new clothes and called it mortal mind. GOD IS ALL!

You can’t get into God Mind. You can only realize this Mind to be your Mind and your Self. Below are a few suggestions to facilitate realization:

  • Forget all that metaphysical drivel about thoughts having power, and with that drop all that co-creation business. Only God is Power, and that Power sustains and maintains a Finished Kingdom right where you are.
  • Accept and acknowledge that there is much more to Life (and to you) than the so-called intellect is or can be aware of.
  • Make it your intention to know what this more is.

Don’t Try To Still Your Mind

Silent, listening prayer is the golden gateway to Revelation. Yet too many people intent on passing through this gateway are straining and struggling with all their might and main to do the impossible. They are trying to still their minds. If this is you, STOP! Mind (your Mind) is meant to be active. It is Omni-action itself. Mind is all the activity of the universe. It will always be active. Let it be!

Reader, do not confuse Mind with the brain and its busy-bee thoughts. Brain is nothing but a severely limited and distorted sense of Mind. Mistaking the Mind to be brain is like mistaking the moon to be a gumdrop.

Mind (God) is always busy in the act of Self-Perception. Its action is awareness. Mind’s action is the awareness of being All. Its action is awareness of being One Presence and One Power. Mind’s action is awareness of being Love and Perfection. Its action is awareness of being All in action. Reader, this is the Mind that you ARE (not have) right this moment.

“But,” you say, “Allen, it’s those to-do, forgot-to-do, and other pesky little thoughts that I want to get rid of when I’m praying. What do I do about them?”

Here are some suggestions:

  • First, make a decision to stop fighting those pesky thoughts. Let Mind be active in Self (God) Awareness.
  • Then, when those unwanted busy-bee thoughts buzz about, simply remind yourself that this hyperactive mind is only a distorted experience of the I AM actively knowing and being Itself.
  • As often as necessary tell yourself, “This is not Mind. It is not Me.” Soon, you will find that you are settling into an exhilarating experience of omni-active Silence and Revelation.

This Is The Only Sure Way!

Repetitive For A Reason

Have you noticed a pattern in these blog posts? In many, if not most, I suggest that you ask questions of your Self (God) and wait for the answers to be revealed. And, I always caution that you resist the itch to make up your own answers.

There is a reason for this suggestion: There’s a world of difference between Truth revealed and Truth merely heard, read or said. Truth revealed is like winning the big prize in a lottery drawing when you’re down to your last dollar. Truth merely read is as helpful as falling into a lion’s den wearing a meat jacket.

One Truth Revealed Worth The Wait In Gold

In a poem by the famous poet Nikki Giovanni, she writes, “One ounce of truth benefits like ripples in a pond.” It’s true. One Truth revealed is better than reading and studying libraries of Truth books. One Truth revealed touches every area of your life.

Your Only Spiritual Authority

With every suggestion to question and listen, I am intentionally turning your attention to the only valid authority – God Consciousness. Your Consciousness.
