Below are questions that have come up regarding the last two posts about those “Stubborn Problems.”
Allen, what you’ve written in the last two posts sounds like old Christian theology where God sends adversity to teach us a lesson. Am I missing something?
Yes, you are. These posts could not suggest anything like that. It’s clearly stated that the problem, no matter how long-standing, is not real. By not real, I mean not really present. However, these problems seem real and appear to be very present.
God cannot send non-existent difficulties. As you must know, God (Perfection) is right there where the difficulty seems to be. For many years we have declared that God is the only Presence … until a problem arises. Then, the One becomes two – God and the problem.
These two posts about “stubborn problems” are merely saying there is still just the One Presence and Evidence. Part 2 offers suggestions on how to see and experience the One, and only the One. Reader, our whole business in life is to know, see, and consciously BE the One, and that’s because there is only One to know, see and BE.
You write a lot about asking and listening. Even your last post boils down to asking and listening. That’s hard for me. Any alternatives?
It was a challenge for me as well. However, I realized that without revelation, you only have words you’ve read or heard. Words, just words. Revelation establishes these words as verifiable facts.
If you are asking for a suggestion, here’s one. Read the last two posts again. Then, if you appear to have a problem, make a decision to resolve that problem via the suggestions made in those posts. Take no human steps to resolve the seeming problem. All steps are inner steps of mounting realization. No matter how long it seems to take, resolve it only in this way. Having done that, I know you will never default to any other way. Furthermore, the listening and hearing will be much easier.
