Body 101 (Part 2)

1-corinthians-3-16-your-body-is-a-temple-of-god-pink-1

You’ve read the last post, and by now you have your list of questions written down. You will be referring to these questions many times. Having them on paper eliminates the anxiety of trying to remember them during a “listening session.”

If listening is the greater part of learning, then hearing is the prelude to knowing. This blog post is about being God-taught by hearing the voice of “your” God Consciousness. It is not enough to listen. Listening must progress to hearing and conclude with knowing. It is the knowledge of Truth that frees you from the false ideas about your Body.

How To Begin A Listening Session

Unless you have your questions memorized, begin by reading over your list. Approach each session with an open mind. The answers most likely will surprise you. As expected, none of your answers will support ideas based on a material concept of your Body.

Next, settle in and ask the question that is uppermost in your Mind. If closing your eyes works for you, then close them. Now, you simply listen intently for the answer. Give it a minute or so and then proceed to the next question. You can, if you decide, go through your entire list of questions in one session. I never do.

I’m always asked how long a listening session should be. I can’t tell you that. Whatever feels right to you. Sometimes it may span two or three minutes. Other times, it may be much longer. The essential thing is that your listening sessions be approached with joy and enthusiasm.

Where Are The Answers Coming From?

Sometimes you will have a listening session where nothing is heard. It happens all the time for me. Nevertheless, you want to cut out any unnecessary delays to hearing the answers to your questions. This means you must understand that answers are not coming “to” you from a God outside of you. We are through with that kind of dualism.

All of the answers are already within your Consciousness. They are bubbling up within you. To tell the Truth, you are the answer to every question. This fact, understood, eliminates the delay caused by time and distance.

Don’t Despair

Ideally, every listening session will result in your hearing the answer to one or more of your questions. If you’re anything like me, you start your sessions with the hope that the answers come quickly – without delay.

That can happen, but to be honest, for me, it doesn’t often happen like that. Sometimes you have to ask repeatedly, for many days. Don’t despair. The answer is worth the wait. An answer heard gives you both a new view and a new experience of your Body.

Whatever you do, don’t drop the ball. Don’t get so frustrated that you completely abandon your listening sessions. One day, you’ll look back and say, “Allen, this is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

How To Handle “The Mosquitos”

The other day my brother called and asked me how to handle those pesky little thoughts that buzz about in your mind. It seems as soon as you decide to listen, thoughts about the new lawnmower; the grocery list; the booster shots; etc., come up.

You try fighting them, but like mosquitos, they keep coming back. Give those thoughts exactly what they want – attention. Rather than fighting them, tell them, “I promise I’ll give you a few minutes when I’m done.” Usually, something like this keeps them at bay.

One thing I know for sure is that if you are serious about hearing, you will find an effective way to deal with these thoughts.

The Answer

When an answer is revealed, you will naturally go into contemplation mode. That’s a good thing. You will probably contemplate the answer for many days. And it is possible that your listening sessions become contemplation sessions. In this case, that’s a good thing. In a short while, you will get back to your list.

In your journal, you have your list of questions. That journal should also contain the answer to your questions. You will refer to these answers many times – mainly for inspiration.

Again, I encourage you to enjoy the entire process.

BODY 101 (Part 1)

1 Corinthians 3-16 Your Body is a Temple of God pink

 

The school season has officially begun and college students are shuffling through the hallowed halls of academia with an eagerness to learn. Most likely, your days of all-night cramming for a morning exam are behind you. But not so fast. The reason for this post is to encourage you to go back to school. I’m suggesting that you enroll in, probably, the most practical and effective class you’ve ever taken: BODY 101.

Should you decide to enroll in this class, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to immunize your Body so that it never sickens.
  • How to restore the proper functions of every part of your Body.
  • How to undo age-related appearances and diseases.
  • How to see and hear better.
  • How to learn faster.

Are you interested? There are no sign-up and log-in forms. There are no passwords, no course agenda, and no downloads. There is no fee for this course, and Allen White is not teaching this class.

BODY 101 will be taught by the most effective and efficient professor the world has ever known. Before I tell you more about the professor, I’m going to tell you about the world’s most famous student ever to graduate from BODY 101.

  • He raised a man from the dead after three days in the tomb.
  • He gave sight to blind eyes.
  • He instantly healed several men of a deadly contagious disease.
  • He immediately lowered the fever and healed a woman lying in her sickbed.

You know that I’m referring to the summa cum laude graduate of the Body School – Christ Jesus. He was the most diligent student of BODY 101. He listened. He learned. He revealed (some call it healing).

There are so many conflicting theories about the Body. The most divergent are the biological and spiritual. But even authors in the spiritual camp present conflicting ideas. Some say the Body is not real. Others say that the Body is God embodied.

When caring for the Body, some authors suggest that you still use common sense and follow the learned advice of physicians and nutritionists. Others say, “That’s nonsense.”

What’s true? BODY 101 reveals the answer to these and many of your other questions. As there is only one truth concerning 2 plus 2, there is only one Truth concerning the answer to these questions. This one Truth should motivate you to enroll in BODY 101 as soon as possible.

It’s not diet or exercise that will free you from false ideas about the Body. There’s only one way: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).

To enroll in BODY 101, you’ll need the following:

  • willingness to relearn the Body/open mind
  • journal
  • list of questions

Willingness To Relearn/Open Mind

To get started in this eye-opening curriculum, you’ll need a willingness to relearn the nature of your Body. Your highly esteemed professor, the Holy Comforter (God Consciousness), will direct the course content. Your questions provide the syllabus.

Relearning your Body implies a willingness to let go of all previous theories you’ve learned about your Body. To illustrate what is meant by letting go, I’m going to digress a moment. Do you know how to trap a live monkey?

“Bore a small hole into a whole young coconut (buko), about an inch in diameter, or just enough for the monkey to insert its hands with outstretched fingers into the nut. Secure the nut with wire or rope among the trees where monkeys abound. Or any place they frequent looking for food.

“A monkey comes, looks around, inserts its hand into the hole. Once its hand reaches the inside of the nut, it scoops the soft flesh and holds it into a tight fist. By so doing its hand gets stuck inside the nut. The monkey will not release its hold and will try to carry off the nut. Get the picture of a small fellow getting his fingers stuck into an oversize bowling ball?

“The poor monkey tumbles, shrieks, and does everything possible to take the nut off, panicking in the process. But it can’t think of releasing his fist. It soon gets exhausted.”

To get out of the trap, the monkey simply needs to let go of the soft flesh. That’s all. No one wants to be trapped in a fleshy concept of the Body – an aging, decaying, body prone to disease and death. To get free one simply needs to be willing to let go of material-based theories concerning the Body.

Journal

A journal is suggested because you do need to record your list of questions, and ideally, your
God-revealed answers.

List of Questions

Consider your Body as it seems right now. Consider your current perceptions of Body in general. What questions do you have? Take your time and make a list.

Your list can include any questions that you would like answered, however, there is one question that should top your list: Does the Body even exist?

I’ve got to go now. Class is about to start. By the next post, you will most likely have your list of questions, and I will conclude this article on BODY 101.

Your Soul Is Always Smiling

Laugh For No Reason At All

Have you ever laughed for no reason at all – laughed just to laugh? Try it! Supposedly, it changes your body’s chemistry and healing happens. But that’s from a physiological (dualistic) point-of-view. We’re beyond that.

The opening question is based on the title of a popular book, Laugh for No Reason, by Dr. Mandan Kataria. Dr. Kataria is most popular for his Laughing Yoga movement. I’m not a practitioner, but I am an advocate of Laughing Yoga. Here’s why.

A Reason For Your Joy

Too many people believe that you need a reason to laugh. A crazier notion is that you need a reason to be joyful. What happened to me many years ago best illustrates this. I was walking down the street, and a portly man with curly blond hair was walking towards me. He caught me off guard when he stopped in front of me and blurted, “What are you so *&*** happy about?” He didn’t bother to wait for my answer. He scratched his head and kept walking.

The man was right. I was feeling joyful but for no particular reason. After our brief face-to-face I asked myself, “Do I really need a reason to be joyful?” I direct the same question to you, reader. Do you need a reason to be joyful? You shouldn’t. You and I have a right to be joyful every second of the day. That’s because JOY IS OUR NATURE.

Nothing Can Disturb The Joy Of Your Being

Galatians 5:22 of the Holy Bible lists nine fruits of the Spirit. The first three are love, joy and peace. Thus, Joy is a fruit (natural manifestation) of God’s Presence. And what is your Being but God Being You? Joy is your nature. Joy is as natural to you as perfume is to the rose.

You’ve heard, read and probably said that God is changeless. That’s a fact. And what God is, God always is. Nothing affects or changes God. How can it? There’s nothing going on but God. The Joy of God is as changeless as God. Joy is an ever-present constant. This is why, despite all seeming, the Joy that You Are is forever and never changes. Irrespective of how you seem to be feeling now, or at any time, you remain the very Presence of Joy. JOY IS YOUR NATURE.

Does this make sense to you? Don’t think about your answer. Think about God’s Allness and then answer. Where there is Joy, there is no grief. There is no down in the dumps depression.

Get Out Of The Dumps And Recover Your Joy

There’s no doubt that sometimes you don’t feel Joyful. Your joy seems to be clouded over with sadness and grief. But just as the sun is unfazed by the clouds, so your joy is unfazed by sadness and grief. And you can prove it. Try this.

  • First recognize that the unpleasant feeling you seem to be experiencing is not natural – is not God – and decide that you won’t accept it.
  • Next, go on a mini pray-a-thon. These are short, two-minute bursts of silent prayer. You may, as I have, repeat these sessions as many as twenty times. That’s a small price to pay to get out of a funk.
  • Each prayer is for one purpose – to realize more of God’s Presence. For this to work, that must be your only purpose.
  • At some point, and it usually happens the same day, God-Realization happens. The seeming clouds disperse and it’s all sunshine and Joy – for no reason at all.

You don’t need a reason to be joyful. You Are Joy.
