“Allen, I’ve read all the books, traveled around the country to hear the lectures. I’ve sat in many tape groups. I’ve done all the stuff, but now I want to live this Truth. The reading, Allen, is easy. Everybody reads the Truth, but few are living it. How do I live this Truth?”
The Partial Answer
That question is asked more than any other question. The partial answer is simple: YOU CAN’T LIVE THIS TRUTH. Anyone trying to live this Truth will fail. After years of sitting in silences, and toiling away at right thinking, most reach the conclusion that “It can’t be done.” But there are a few troopers who dig their heels in by sitting in longer silences and thinking statements of Truth more vigorously. Later, they reach the same conclusion: “It’s impossible to live this Truth.” But don’t you believe it! It is not impossible.
Relax! Truth Is Living Itself As Yourself
Truth (God being All) is all that there is. Truth is living Itself all the time. Truth doesn’t need co-workers and co-creators to live Itself. Right this very moment, as you are reading this post, Truth is living Itself as the entirety of the universe – Yourself included. So, where does that leave folk who are trying to live this Truth? Nowhere. But for clarification read on.
Right Identification Is The Secret
Do you know what the secret of Christ Jesus’ mind-blowing miracles is? It’s the way he identified himself. “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). Jesus did not identify himself as a seeker of Truth, or as one trying to live this Truth. He identified himself as Truth.
Why is this important? Because when you discover that you are Truth, there is no separation between your Self and Truth. The greatest joy in life is when you discover that you are the very Truth you have been trying to live. This can’t be by merely saying words. This must be Revelation.
Prayerfully discovering that you are Truth extinguishes the anxiety and effort of trying to live Truth. Effortlessly, life “falls into place” in very pleasant ways. I’m not saying that there will be no further “so-called” challenges. And I’m not saying that you will walk across the water in your jacuzzi. I am saying, however, that as your understanding of what it means to be Truth clarifies, life shows forth more of its beauty, perfection, joy and abundance.
The Full Answer
In the opening of this post I wrote that you can’t live this Truth, but don’t despair. The full answer is YOU CAN’T LIVE THIS TRUTH AS LONG AS YOU IMAGINE YOURSELF TO BE SOMETHING OTHER THAN TRUTH.
