Reflections — Did You Miss These Posts?

tree-reflection

The year is closing out and December 2017 ends our fifth year of Absolutely Yours. Before we launch into the so-called new year, why not take a look at some of the great posts from previous years.

I perused the posts of the past and pulled out some buried treasures. If you are new to this site, it’s possible that you have missed some of these jewels. If you never read another post from this blog, those cited below deserve your attention.

First and foremost is the post based on an idea that boosted my career as a public speaker – the Body Month. The ideas in the post lie under a mountain of praises by people who followed the suggestions. Many readers have established a particular month of each year for their Body Month.

On the heels of the Body Month is the post on How To Pray Effectively. Most readers of this blog pray daily. Reader, don’t you agree that it’s best to know the most effective way for you to pray? And by effective, I mean the way that brings you the most satisfying results. Don’t jump to any conclusions. This is not a pray this way or die post. It’s about your way. I promise that if you follow the suggestions in this post, you’ll be thrilled with the results.

Just the other day, I learned that Amazon.com is now offering free same-day delivery for Prime members. This means less anxious waiting for new tech toys and stand mixers. Which brings me to this question – Are You Waiting For A Miracle? Have you been waiting for a long time? There’s no need for you to wait for health, happiness, love, peace or supply. This post will help put an end the waiting game.

Here are a few more questions. Do you remember a time when you were afraid? Did it seem that your mind conjured up mental movies where you nearly drowned in your troubles? Did you keep replaying those movies? Were you more afraid? I think that’s why a former pastor told his good friend “the worst neighborhood you can visit is the one in your own head. You get mugged every time.”

But is this true? Does anyone have a fearful, negative-thinking mind? No! That’s why this post Mind – Impersonal and Universal should be read and frequently contemplated. While I’m on the subject of contemplation, doesn’t it lift your heart to a wonderful place when you contemplate God’s Allness?

Many people have asked, “Does contemplation really help matters?” Yes it does. Contemplation helps because, when done right, it reveals there is no matter (or situation governed by material laws). The post Contemplation Matters For These Reasons will inspire you and answer your questions about contemplation. In that post, there is a section about seeing things as they are. This begs the question, What Are You Saying that You Are Seeing?

Reader, enjoy your reading and enjoy your holiday season. Most of all, enjoy the wonderful Life that is living as You.

Repetition or Revelation?

Question:

Allen, what state of mind do you keep moment by moment? In other words, do you constantly repeat God is All? I don’t know if you need to do something to keep your awareness of your real identity, or not.

This is an excerpt from a question asked by one of our readers. There are many subjects that require repetition in order to learn them. Foreign languages and multiplication tables immediately come to mind. In order to say “I love playing football” fluently in Mandarin, you probably have to repeat the sentence slowly many times before you can speak it confidently. But, once you know it, you don’t have to repeat it.

Once it is revealed in Consciousness that God is All, you know it. There’s no more doubt or uncertainty. You know God is All, and that’s that. There’s no need for you to make a conscious effort to repeat Truth just to “stay on top of things.” You know it.

Although you don’t have to make a conscious effort to remind yourself that God is All, a wonderful thing happens. Without thinking about it, “your” Consciousness soars and surges with the awareness of this Truth. This happens throughout the entire day.

Consciousness is a one trick pony. All it can do is Know (and Be) the Allness of God. And this is what happens once God’s Allness is revealed. It’s a thrilling and transcendent experience.
