What To Do About That Diagnosis

God is All

“Allen, the other day I went to the doctor’s office to get my test results. It wasn’t good. Should I just ignore the doctor’s diagnosis and focus on God’s Allness?” This question raises its head too many times to ignore; so let’s dive into the answer.

First Handle The Fear

The first order of business is to face the fear and snuff it out. Here is what worked for me. Faced with what looked like a severe health crisis, I slumped on the bed trembling (never a good sign). Fear gripped so tightly that worst case scenarios flashed across my mind. I had to do something … and quick. My next thought was, “Allen, is God All?” I answered “Yes.”

Starting from God’s Allness, I prayed asking this one question, “What mind is experiencing this fear?” The answer was not immediate. Again, I asked and listened. That night the answer revealed itself: “There is no mind aware of anything to fear.” Immediately the fear left. The situation did not change, but it was no longer in charge.

In my lectures, I often say that so-called disease is like a stray cat. Instead of milk, it feeds on fear. If there’s no fear around, it slinks away. With the fear gone, the (seeming) problem goes.

Discovering The Diagnosis Isn’t Real

Now that you have handled the fear, it’s time to handle the diagnosis. This has to be by way of Revelation. Reader, I know you’ve heard stories of people facing life-threatening diseases who picked up a book and were healed after reading a few paragraphs. I heard a story of someone who laid my book God Is All on an ailing body part and was healed. These stories don’t impress me. Revelation is the best way, and below are suggestions to prime the pump of Revelation.

In silent prayer ask:

(1) Is this diagnosis of __________ true or not?
(2) Right here where _________ seems to be, what is here?

That’s my way, but Marie Watts suggests another line of questioning that restored her sight and “cured” her cancer.

(1) God, do you know anything about _____________?
(2) Then, do I know anything about ______________?
(3) Does any mind know anything about ___________?

Do not reason out your answers. There is no power in a reasoned answer. Wait, and let the Voice of Revelation speak. This is the Voice of your God Consciousness. When It speaks, “the earth melts”. Simply put, all seeming material conditions are revealed and EXPERIENCED as nothing – no thing at all.

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.
