Hip Replacement Surgery – A Better Way

psa139-14

By 2030 This Number Is Expected To Increase 300%

“A hip replacement,” I screeched into the phone. “Why would you want a hip replacement as young as you are?” It was a crazy question, but the news took me off guard. My good friend Kevin said he’s been in tear-inducing pain for months. “Sometimes,” he said, “it hurts so bad I don’t want to get out of bed.”

In the United States alone, approximately 300,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed each year. That’s a lot of swapping bone for metal and plastic. In the last few years, people talk about getting hip replacements like they’re getting an Olympic gold medal. They even smile about it. How many of these are actually necessary? From a medical point-of-view, it’s debatable. From a spiritual point of view, just about NONE of them.

Every time someone tells me they’re scheduled for a hip replacement, the picture of a giant saw cutting through bone comes to mind. I think how invasive the procedure is, and I say to myself, “There is a better way – a way that causes no pain, no cut, and no recovery time.” That’s why I’m writing this post.

Before I continue, be clear that my intention is not to dissuade you (if you’ve made up your mind) from having hip replacement surgery. My intention is to bring to your awareness another approach, an approach that is consistent with God being All, and All being God.

Two Stories of Spiritual Replacement Surgery

At the age of nine, Charles Fillmore, co-founder of the Unity movement, was diagnosed with tuberculosis of the hip which left him with a shriveled right leg which, in his own words, “refused to grow.” The entire right side of his body was affected. He lost hearing in his right ear and vision in his right eye weakened. But, with SPIRITUAL SURGERY, his shortened, withered leg grew to match his “good” leg, and both his vision and hearing were restored.

Mr. Fillmore had a leg, ear, and eye replacement. Through spiritual discernment, he replaced a human, material concept of his body with the spiritual reality of his Body. Spiritual reality, he discerned, did not include a withered leg, deaf ear, or weakened vision. Spiritual discernment revealed that every aspect of his Body was as whole and perfect as God. He realized that Spirit, Soul and Body is One. He realized what is true of the Spirit of God is what is true of Body – his Body and every Body.

Here’s another fine example of what I call Spiritual Replacement Surgery. Many years ago a man called me for prayer help. H. Bigham had been his longtime Practitioner-Consultant, but she was no longer taking calls.

He shared the story of his first time calling Mrs. Bigham for prayer help concerning one of his remaining teeth. Within days, all of his missing teeth were “restored.”

This story and Fillmore’s both prove the practicality of spiritual surgery. They both are great lessons on spiritual replacement of faulty body parts. They prove that it is possible to have great results with a non-invasive procedure. The procedure is simply a conscious realization of Truth. And, you can do this.

Spiritual Surgery Is A Matter Of Consciousness

Do you need hip, limb, or organ replacement surgery? If you are willing to try spiritual surgery, you can avoid the knife, the pain, and the recovery time. Even better, you come out of this “procedure” with a greater understanding of God, spiritual Substance, Identity, and your Body.

The first step in spiritual replacement surgery is crucial. Without it, everything else is a waste of your time. Here is the first step: Disregard (because I know it’s nearly impossible to forget) everything you’ve learned about your Body through observation, science classes, religious dogma, etc.

Just for the sake of explanation, imagine that your Mind is a large blackboard. Written on it are a zillion facts about your Body. These are the facts you’ve learned in the past. Willingly, erase everything on it. Don’t worry, it won’t stay empty for long.

The next step is to fill the board with new facts – spiritual discoveries concerning your Body. Where do these facts come from? Not from books. You’re going to be God taught.

This has to be Revelation. There is no other way. You cannot reason your way into this. Asking and silent listening facilitate Revelation of vital Truth concerning your Body. Your business is experiencing Revelation. That’s all!

No actual surgery takes place. No replacement occurs – excepting the replacement of false concepts with the Truth. Revelation exposes the perfect Body (part) where a faulty one seems to be.

What I’ve written here is nothing new. There are many other stories I could share, but the bottom line is this: If you know that God is All, there is a spiritual way to handle all of your Body concerns.

Forgiveness and Healing

let-it-go-1

“Sir, I have heard you say that if a person has been diagnosed with an incurable disease, they should get busy forgiving everyone that they can think of. Why is that so important to you?”

I didn’t originate this idea. Christ Jesus did. Read his words:

“And when you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father may forgive you.” [Mark 11:25]

This implies that forgiveness is the first and most essential step for successful prayer. Let’s go behind Jesus’ wise counsel and get at the heart of it, as it relates to healing.

Forgivness Is Oneness — An Essential For Healing

In any case of disease, whether curable or incurable, there is (or seems to be) the belief that the disease is a power, and it can wreak havoc on the body’s health. The Truth is, God is the only Power (Doer).

In any case of unforgiveness, the one who clings to past offenses and refuses to forgive believes that someone or something had power to wreak havoc in their life. “Look what she did to me. My life is in ruins because of it. You can understand, can’t you, why I won’t forgive her?” Yet, that person, and the thing they did, never had power to do anything. God was and is the only power in and as the life of the non-forgiving person.

What Is Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual healing is the Realization of God as the only Presence and Power. That Realization is impossible while holding on to the idea that something (fill in any name here) has power. Spiritual healing is a near impossibility while consciously holding on to past hurts.

Spiritual healing is the Realization of Oneness. While holding on to past hurts and offenses, you are holding on to twoness. Spiritual healing is impossible while clinging to dualism.

Making Things Clearer

The purpose of this post is to answer the subscriber’s question. For a better understanding of forgiveness, and how to do it, you can’t beat this post by Lillian DeWaters.

The Solution For Stubborn Problems

there-is-always-hope-dont-give-up

What You Can Do About A Stubborn Case Is This

It’s time I wrote about those stubborn cases – those problems that seem to cling like barnacles to a whale’s belly. This could be a chronic disease such as asthma, diabetes, arthritis, etc. Or it could look like a chronic case of “I never have enough money.” Then again, it could appear as chronic dysfunctional relationships. Whatever the case may seem to be, the problem looks like it’s been hanging around for years, and you just can’t beat it. Reader, you can’t beat it, but you can know the nothingness of it.

Starting from our basic premise that God is the only Presence, and this Presence is changeless Perfection, you can rest assured that Perfection IS the only Presence and the only Evidence. This, and not the barnacles, is your starting point.

Do you have a long-standing problem that seems real? Have you been trying to heal yourself, or get rid of it? Go back to the starting point and stay there. This has to trigger the realization that since Perfection (God) is All, this thing cannot be, and it is not present. No matter how long-standing the problem has been, a clear realization such as this is like sunlight flooding a room that’s sat in darkness for years. The darkness (trouble) is now nowhere to be found.

Regardless of how stubborn and resistant a problem seems to be, no appearance of imperfection should be tolerated. Stiff and aching joints, frequent migraines, tumors and tubercles, turbulent relationships, paycheck-to-paycheck living – none of these should be tolerated.

Getting Cozy With A Problem Is Not Getting Rid Of It

When a problem seems difficult to “heal,” some resort to snuggling up and getting as comfortable as possible with it. At night, those who seem to suffer from arthritis reach to the nightstand for some pain-relieving ointment. They slather it all over their aching joints and hope for a good night’s sleep. All the while, they have resigned themselves to a lifetime of joint rubbing.

There are some who can’t seem to shake the “I can’t make ends meet” dis-ease, and they enslave themselves to the latest magic-working budget plan. Or, as a woman once told me who could not shake a seemingly dysfunctional relationship syndrome, “I’ll just stick with my same jacked-up friends.”

These are examples of snuggling up to a problem rather than perceiving the nothingness of it. Stop! The realization that God is All must goad you to rise up and say to these hallucinations, “This far and no further.” If you seem to be experiencing a stubborn case of “whatever,” imagine there’s a large black billboard in front of you, and in big bold red letters are these two words: Don’t Resign!

Instead Of The Stubborn Situation, There Is The Perfection Of God

You’ve heard it said that behind every problem is the Perfection of God. For the sake of this article, behind every stubborn case is the Perfection of God. However, this is very dualistic language, so let’s correct it now. Let’s take the next step and know that INSTEAD OF THE STUBBORN CASE, GOD’S PERFECTION IS. Doesn’t this stay true to our starting point? Staying and not straying is the key to resolving seemingly stubborn situations.

The Takeaway

Don’t give in and don’t give up is the take-away from today’s part one of a two-part series. Maybe it’s been months, perhaps years, that you’ve endured your seeming problem, but all the while it was a lie about the Omnipresent Perfection.

Joel Goldsmith On Problems

solution

When You Are Confronted With A Problem Turn Within

Let it be clearly understood that the wisdom of man is not sufficient to give anyone the specific truths adequate to meet a problem. When you are confronted with specific problems, whether your own or somebody else’s, you cannot rush around looking for a memorandum of some recording you have heard or some passage in a book you have read to remind you what truths you are supposed to know, because, even if you found them instantly, they would not be too helpful.

All truth is given to us from God, and if you want to know the truth about anything – the specific truth – you do not have to go to a book to find it. Turn to God within. There is a specific truth for every problem, and the abiding place of that truth is in your consciousness. Your consciousness is the place where every bit of truth is found.

There Is A Specific Truth For Every Problem

“The kingdom of God is within you.” There is nothing for which you could seek that you cannot find within yourself. When you learn to receive the answers, you will find that you are given a truth, a specific truth with which to meet every problem because there is a specific truth about every problem which will be revealed through turning wholeheartedly to God and in meditation seeking Him alone.

The question often arises as to whether or not God knows anything about our problems. Probably not, but when you go within asking, “What or where is the bread of this day?” the answer may come, “I am the bread, the wine, and the water.” Or if you should ask what the truth is about a particular situation, you might hear the words, “I am the truth.” The problem of the organs and functions of the body may be uppermost in your mind, and then the truth may reveal itself in this way, “I govern the organs and functions of the body. Life governs the organs and functions of the body. Organs and functions do not govern life.”

Problems Are Opportunities

There are stages in our experience with problems. The first period is when we have a problem that to us is a very real one, and we turn to a practitioner, teacher, or teaching for help in solving that problem. The second stage of our unfoldment is that stage in which a problem becomes an opportunity.

Jacob had reached that stage when he wrestled with the angel all night long and would not let him go: “I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” It is when we are at that point that we, too, say, “I don’t want this problem to pass until I have seen the spiritual light that dissolves it, and which, in dissolving this problem, will dissolve all the problems which may be developing tomorrow or next year.”

Suppose that we do have a problem of disease? Suppose that we are meeting with lack and limitation? Why be concerned and why struggle as if we must get rid of those problems when our function is to prove the nothingness of them? Therein lies the secret. If our function is to prove the nothingness of all the appearances that the world calls discord, then why should be we concerned when the opportunity comes to us to prove their nothingness, first to ourselves and then to the world.

Don’t Be Surprised If A Practitioner Tells You This

blogpost

A woman suffered for many years with an unnamed chronic disease. She tried many practitioners and none were able to help her.

Finally, at the recommendation of a friend, she called another practitioner. The woman poured out her story of suffering, and how no one was able to heal her. Every now and again, the practitioner spoke a word of Truth to the woman. No matter what the practitioner said, the woman responded, “Yes, I know that.”

Exasperated, the Practitioner said, “Well, then, I guess you know that you can’t be healed.” The woman gasped, “I can’t be healed. What do you mean?” The practitioner explained, “If you already know that God is all, and beside God there is nothing else, and, if you already know that you and God are one, you have to know that you can’t be healed because you were never sick.” Suddenly, the Light of understanding flicked on, and almost instantly, her troubles were gone.

  • Isn’t it great to know that you can’t be healed because you aren’t sick? And you can’t be sick because God is All.
  • Isn’t it great to know that you don’t need a financial miracle because you can never be in need? God’s Infinite, Abundant Substance is always present right where you are.
  • Isn’t it wonderful to know that you can’t improve yourself because you were never flawed in any way? God’s Allness is all there is of you.

This brief post is just to remind you of what you already know to be true. God is All, and All is always well.

What About Mental Causes?

Allen White God Is All

Could This The Reason Why It’s Happening To Me?

Tom J. is pinned to the mat and is about to tap out. For four years he’s been wrestling with a chronic illness, and it’s not looking good. Tom’s baffled. He’s followed all the suggestions in the books, sermons and lectures: silent prayer, forgiveness, positive thinking, etc. Nothing is working.

While rummaging through his mind, desperately searching for answers, Tom remembers reading that his condition might be related to feelings of chronic resentment and victimization. Then again, it might be those past vengeful thoughts. He’s not sure, so off he goes on a metaphysical witch-hunt searching for past thoughts that could be causing his present malady.

For hours, Tom hunted for possible offending thoughts and emotions. He went all the way back to the bullies in middle-school. The tally of all the possible suspects ran into the hundreds. Whether he was getting anywhere or not, Tom certainly wasn’t getting better. The not-so-subtle variation of this metaphysical witch-hunt is asking yourself, “What did I do to deserve this?” Put the brakes on. Turn around. Don’t go down this dark road.

Mental States For Material Maladies — Lies!

Once upon a time, an idea was promoted that diseases are caused by certain thoughts and emotional states. For example:

  • Arthritis is caused by feeling unloved.
  • Cancer is caused by long-standing resentment.
  • Constipation is caused by holding on to garbage of the past.
  • Kidney stones are caused by lumps of undissolved anger.

The list goes on and on, but this one thing is for sure, they are LIES. Don’t you believe it. God is All.

God Being All Means Disease is ___________?

All of the major metaphysical religions agree that God is the only presence and that disease is not real. Some go further to say that God doesn’t know anything about disease. Absolutists, like this blog, state more clearly that DISEASE IS NOT A PRESENCE. You already know this and are probably saying, “Duh, God being all there is, how could it be?”

Disease is nothing. Disease being a no-thing can’t be caused by anything. Nothing you’ve ever thought or said can make nothing become something.

It’s better to turn your prayerful attention to realizing what “God is All” means than to chase down the cause of phantom diseases. Reader, does it seem that you, like Tom, are pinned to the mat by some illness? Then, let me summarize the above paragraphs.

Nothing caused you to be sick now. Nothing you think, say, or do in the future will cause you to be sick. Disease is neither a presence nor a power. You do not live in a world of cause and effect. You live in and as the ISNESS OF GOD.

Why Am I Not Healed?

This is an excerpt by Alfred Aiken

The Big Question

Repeatedly the following is asked, “Why am I not healed? Why does the problem continue, even though I declare every Truth written in these books on Reality? I accept the statement that only Truth is true; accept it without reservation, but the difficulty lingers or seems to grow worse. What is wrong with what I am doing, or is it that Spirit does not deem it best for me to be well, happy and prosperous?”

These questions never stem from Truth. They never stem from Infinite Intelligence. Such arguments have nothing in common with Reality, Spirit, Love, Purity, Singleness, your I AM Identity.

The Answer

Any statement of Truth is sufficient to end any trouble, anywhere, regardless of how long it has appeared to be around, or how difficult it may seem to have become. Any statement concerning the ALLNESS OF ALL, THE SINGLENESS OF LOVE, THE PURITY OF BEING, THE OMNIPOTENCE OF WISDOM is true, because ALL precludes otherness, leaves nothing to heal, change, be corrected, cast out, or treated. But the one who merely declares these words meanwhile holding heartily to the problem, the condition, the error is wasting effort. His words are meaningless, his God is afar off, his Omnipotence is but a breath issuing from his lips, his Purity is only a degree of corruption, his Omniaction is a form of paralysis, his I-identity ignored in confusion.

Should you ever discover that you are trying to “become” well, whole, complete, honest, happy, harmonious, rest assured you are playing prodigal to your I AM Self … so stop it.

The Hospital Visit

hosp

Do You Dread The Hospital Visit?

“Allen, those uncomfortable pockets of silence are darn near torturous. I sit there watching them [the patients] struggle to put on a brave face while in obvious agony. All the while, Allen, my mind scrambles to find the right words to say. Finally, I just stand up and say ‘I’ve got to hurry now before rush-hour traffic.’” These are the words of a man describing why he hates the hospital visit.

Do you dread the hospital visit? Should you ever have to make a hospital visit, this brief post will make that visit a joy-filled experience. Reader, be conscious of this: You are the Light of the world. Make that visit in the power of your God-Being. In any hospital visit, there is only one thing to remember: YOU ARE NOT THERE TO SAY ANYTHING. YOU ARE THERE TO KNOW THAT GOD IS ALL.

Stand On The Rock Of Truth

Standing on and as this solid Rock of Truth is all that is required. From this high point, the right words will flow from your mouth as effortlessly as the river flows downstream. And maybe no words will come at all, but it does not matter.

Sitting in that hospital room, mindful of God’s Allness (and nothing else), don’t be surprised if later you get a call saying, “What did you say to Aunt Nancy? She appreciated your visit so much. She said you really inspired and lifted her spirits.”

While hearing these words, you may think to yourself, “What did I say?” But it wasn’t what you said. IT WAS WHAT YOU WERE KNOWING AND BEING that inspired, uplifted and revealed God’s Presence.

When you stand on and AS the solid Rock of Truth (God is All), every word that you say is inspiring and empowering – even a joke. Yes, even your laughter rings with Truth, and the pockets of silence echo God’s Allness.

Stop worrying about what to say and just be concerned about what you know.

It’s Not Enough To Say Evil Has No Power

God Is All

This excerpt is from The Understanding Series by Lillian DeWaters. It is available from Mystics of The World.

What Is A False Belief

A false belief is really no belief at all. What is called a false belief should never be associated with evil in any way, for there is no evil in it – there is nothing in it. For instance the false belief, or assumption, that two and two are five, has nothing in it, no reality or substance or existence. Can you see this to be so?

Nothing Plus Nothing Equals Nothing

Too often a thing is reasoned out to be “just a false belief,” nevertheless it is looked upon as evil, and thought to have power and presence. It must be seen that a false belief, or falsity of any kind, is not evil – that which is nothing is nothing.

There’s No Place Left For Evil

Evil cannot and does not exist in Mind, thought, or body, since all these are in and of Spirit, God, and cannot exist anywhere else. Evil cannot exist as illusion, delusion, dream, spectrality, matter, deception, cause, effect, or false belief, for the reason that such as these are utterly without substance, or presence, thus non-existent.

The True Demonstration

What then constitutes a “demonstration,” or what is there to demonstrate over? Surely one cannot demonstrate over any condition, nor over a dream, deception, or false belief! The need is for one to become aware of the Truth, aware that he is the Self, and that there is nothing in or of him that can be anything else.

Never seek out new methods whereby to heal disease, griefs, or limitations. Seek only for fuller understanding whereby to disprove their existence, and their continuance in appearance, based upon the awareness and understanding that evil cannot come for God, nor from anything else!

Pills, Reiki, God And Healing

blogpost

The Question

Question: “Allen, since God Is All, isn’t God medicine, surgery, Reiki, etc.?”

A Quick Contemplation

At least the questioner starts on a firm foundation: God Is All. Let’s go one step further. What God Is, is all that there is. God Is Perfection; therefore, Perfection Is All there is. Reader, just take a moment to contemplate the Allness of Perfection.

Don’t judge by appearances. Do just what the questioner did. Start your “reasoning” from the Allness of God – but stay there. Have you concluded that Perfection is equally present and everywhere present? Do you see that nothing else exists but Omnipresent Perfection?

What Do You Believe?

Pills, potions, surgery, Reiki and all the other healing modalities — aren’t they based on the premise that there are pockets of imperfection in God’s Allness? Aren’t they based on the assumption (and appearance) that Omnipresent Perfection has lapsed into imperfection? Reader, don’t merely read these questions, answer them. Then answer this question: Do you believe that Omnipresent Perfection (God) can become imperfect?

Spiritual Healing Is Different Because Of The Starting Point

The Book of Habakkuk (Holy Bible) states that God’s eyes are too pure to see evil. Paraphrase: God doesn’t know anything about disease and therefore doesn’t know anything about healing disease. Yet, you and I know that people have appeared to be healed by spiritual means only. I personally know of cases where people have been healed of:

  • blindness
  • cancer
  • AIDS
  • broken bones
  • hearing loss
  • hair loss
  • mental retardation
  • etc.

Yet these so-called healings weren’t like the healings (or patch jobs) that result from surgery, pill popping, Reiki and other healing modalities. Here’s the difference. Surgery, Reiki, and you name the pill start with the disease as a reality and then attempt to eliminate it. In cases of so-called incurable diseases, it’s often an uphill, losing battle.

In so-called “spiritual healing”, the person (or Practitioner) starts with God’s Allness as the reality and sickness as the lie. The person then sets her attention on getting a clearer awareness of God’s Allness. When God reveals Itself to be all there is of the Body, the Perfection that God Is shows forth as what many would call “a healing”.

Importantly, the person knows the so-called healing to be God’s Perfection revealed and evidenced.
