How To Take A Spiritual Bath

The Daily Ritual Is Not Enough

At some point in your day, you step into a hot tub of water with soap and sponge and wash away all the dried perspiration, dead skin cells, and other debris from your Body. Feeling refreshed, you step out of the tub, dry off, deodorize the body and get on with your day.

This daily ritual merely scrubs the surface of the Body. That’s not enough! Soap and sponges don’t reach the real “dirt” that fouls the Body: The dirt of dualism – those false ideas that we entertain about the body. Ideas like:

  • The Body is a biological organism
  • The Body is mortal and must die
  • The Body is changed by time
  • The Body is susceptible to disease

Is God All?

Reader, you say that God is all and that God is the only presence. You say that God is Spirit, Light, Perfection, and that God is birthless, deathless, timeless, ageless Life. All of this is true. Did you then reverse this position and say that the Body (yours) was born on a particular date? Did you contradict yourself by saying that your Body is governed by biological laws that cannot be ignored without your Body suffering terrible consequences?

Reader, you know that none of this filth is true about the God you say is all. And this leaves you at the crossroads: Either God is all and includes the Body, or God is not all.

If you choose wisely and truthfully that God is all, then all of the things you have said about your Body as a biological organism, conditioned by time, are LIES.

Deep Cleaning Your Body

Reader, I know your Body seems very “fleshy.” It appears like it is under the harsh dictatorship of mortality. Nevertheless, only what is true of God is true of your Body, and a deep cleansing of your Body will reveal a wonderfully healthy and vitally alive Body.

Just as you find it necessary, even mandatory, to wash away the day’s accumulation of debris from your Body, it is more important to wash away the dualistic ideas you may be entertaining about your Body.

Everyday, take a few minutes – just a few – to contemplate the spiritual nature of your Body. Start with what you know the nature of God to be. Then, simply include your Body as being the very same nature.

Let those ideas of materiality, mortality, age, disease, and time go down the drain.At some point during your contemplation you will know it is time for words to cease. Be silent, and listen for Consciousness (God) to “speak.” You will know when it’s time to get up. You’re clean. Go and enjoy the rest of your day.

Turning To Truth Is The Best Move You Can Make

Behold God’s Allness

Treatment (Prayer) really means beholding Truth, God’s All-Presence, Power, Action, Completeness, which excludes forever the possibility there can be less anywhere, or something foreign added thereto. In the Light of Truth one instantly sees there is no problem to solve, error to handle, disease to treat, condition to overcome, and this Realization, Perception, already the unchanging Fact, appears as a “healing” but in Reality no change has occurred. God is all of all present – no disease or absence of Good existed to be destroyed.

Human Ways Are Not More Powerful

Do not tolerate the notion that turning wholly to God as all, is not effective, not potent! Never assume that drugs, the scalpel, the concerted opinions and treatment of learned specialists and technicians are more desirable, effective, certain.

Turning to Truth in the hour of need is the most potent of all moves. One can never fail. The problem, no matter how severe, what its source or prognosis, how honored as a dread disease, how long it has ruled the organ, the body, the whole household, has not one iota of power, authority, ability to hinder or harm you in the slightest the instant you turn to Truth. God being the alone Mind already includes the perfect answer or solution, hence there are no problems yet waiting to be solved. Perfection can never be ill; It has no sickness to contact, contract or overcome. Infinity being The Alone has no decisions to make, for there is no choice where Truth is all, One.

This Truth is “mighty to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (Truth).”

by Alfred Aiken

Escaping The Dream of Human Existence


Margaret said, “I know that God is all – the only presence and the only power. But how do we get out of the dream of this trouble-filled human existence?”

With just a tinge of arrogance, Truth students who think they have “arrived” say that the human experience is “nothing but a dream.” They spit the words out like chewing gum that’s lost its flavor. The trials, troubles and even the ecstasies are, to them, nothing but a bad dream…so they say. Ask these students questions, and let them keep talking. Soon, it is obvious. These well-intentioned Truth students cannot find an escape hatch to get out of this dream. Anyone in a burning building can scream, “The building is on fire,” but what is needed is a way out.

There Is Only God

Margaret said she knows that God is all. That knowing should be her escape hatch and the answer to her question. When you know the nature of God, and you know that God is all there is, you know that there is no dream to enter, and no dream to escape.

Reader, I know that daily life often seems like a hellish maze. I know the body seems fleshy and cumbersome. I know that situations often seem cruel and crushing. However, you (yes YOU) do reach a point where you can look at all of this and know that only God, and what God is, is here.

Revelation Is The Way

You will not reach this point by strenuous mental effort. You cannot reach it by shooting rounds of affirmations and denials at human troubles in a material world. No, it must be the way of Revelation.

The Questions

In most articles I write, I always direct you to the temple of God Consciousness – your only Consciousness. Go there and ask your Self questions such as these:

• Is this material world that I seem to be living in real, or not?
• In my daily living, what is the evidence that God is All?
• Do I have a mind that is aware of a material or human existence?

Listen for the answers. Expect to “hear” the answers. No matter how long it seems to take, wait for the answer. It is well worth your investment.

A woman asked me, “Allen, how do I know if I have really experienced Revelation?” I told her about my “Revelation litmus test.” Here it is: If you are wondering whether or not it was Revelation, it wasn’t. The experience of Revelation leaves no doubt, or uncertainty.

A Life Better Than You Could Ever Imagine

Reader, I want you to take a few minutes to imagine yourself living a life where only perfection is experienced. Imagine yourself with a body that is perfect in every way. See yourself perfectly, constantly, and abundantly supplied with every good thing. See all of your affairs perfectly adjusted to the good of all concerned. Let your imagination soar.

Whatever your vision looks like, it pales in comparison to reality – your reality. Whether gradually by degrees, or in the blink of an eye, get about the business of discerning that God, and what God is, is your right here, right now experience.

All Hands On Deck — Prayer

Kim Jong-un, leader of North Korea, appears to be showing very convincing evidence that he is something other than God-Identified. His actions seem to be something other than Love in action.

However, you and I know that God is the only Presence, Power, Life, Mind and Identity.

I am asking that you join with me in contemplating the One infinite God-Identity as the only Identity, and know that right there where there appears to be a power-mad dictator, there is God, and God alone.

Let’s get busy knowing that Kim Jong-un, in all the glory of his puffed-up sense of self, is but a distorted picture of the One.

Are you in?

Praying In Jesus’ Name (God Is All excerpt)

Name, of course, means nature. Whenever Jesus speaks of “In my name,” you must interpret it to mean “In my nature.” What is the Christ Jesus nature? Here in the Gospel of St. John, Jesus reveals His nature: “I and my Father are one(and the same).” “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father….” Christ and God are one and the same. To do anything in the name, or nature, of Jesus Christ is to do it in full recognition of one’s own Identity as the full Presence of God. There must come a point where one immediately associates the word or name “God” with his very own identity.

If Christ and God are one and the same, to whom does Christ pray? Christ prays “to” no one or no thing. Prayer, then, is the full Awareness of your God Identity as your only Identity. [from God Is All]
