Somebody Lied – Truth Will Not Heal You
Do you feel that Truth is not working for you? Are you ready to give up? Reader, before you throw in the towel, please read this post all the way to the last period.
I have a confession: TRUTH DOES NOT WORK. Anyone who tries to use Truth to heal a sick body, fill an empty wallet, mend a broken relationship, or land that perfect job will be disappointed. TRUTH DOES NOT WORK.
Many people with whom I’ve spoken admit that their spiritual life has largely consisted of trying to use Truth to get something, or get rid of something. The “thing,” they admit, is and has always been the focus of their spiritual activity. They don’t come right out and say it, but their personal anthem is “Give me the thing. By any means necessary, give me the thing. I’ll try Truth, if Truth will give me the thing, but give me the thing.” If there was another way to get the thing, the users of Truth would drop Truth as quick as the dog drops his chew toy to snatch the steak.
This Is Why God Can’t Fix It
Let’s get back to God. God is All. What God is, is all that is. This is the Fact of Life. Besides God, there is nothing – no thing. Besides God there is no thing to get and no thing to get rid of. God is All.
God does not meander in the dark corridors of nothingness (sickness, lack, limitation, dumbness, sadness, etc.). God (Truth) knows nothing about them. Having no existence, they are the great unknowables. Knowing nothing about them, God cannot fix them. God cannot heal them. You cannot use the somethingness of God’s Allness to fix the nothingness of trials and troubles.
The 30-Day Prayer Reboot
Reader, if you are feeling that you are ready to give up on Truth, STOP!
For thirty (30) days, try this. Junk the notion of God fixing your life. (Do you see the inherent dualism of that idea?) Junk the notion of God healing your body, filling your wallet, or making any other use of Truth. Forget about all the gifts you want Truth to put under your tree. Forget about all of the so-called benefits from your spiritual practice.
Next, focus your prayerful attention on God’s Allness. Contemplate God’s Allness just for the thrill of it. Seek (within Consciousness) a greater understanding of God’s Allness – just for the joy of it. In all of your ways, acknowledge God’s Allness – just for the delight of it.
Reader, do this for thirty days and you will realize God’s Allness in ways never experienced before. And, you will know that no thrill compares to the thrill of God realization. Furthermore, you will see that Truth does not work, but rather, Truth is ALL, and ALL THAT YOU ARE.
