What Do You Say Concept

What About Natural Disasters?

Regarding the recent destruction and wreckage of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria, an enlightened reader asked this question: “What do you say to someone who is suffering because they do believe that havoc and destruction have washed away their house and caused the death of a loved one?”

It’s a great question, and here’s why. Many people who know that God is All seem to experience torturous inner turmoil when their eyes (and other senses) report that some horrific activity is going on that defies the allness of God. What do you say when so many people are believing the report of their eyes and ears? What do you say to someone who appears to be the victim?

It Never Happened, But You Can’t Say That

Truth is not cold and heartless. Truth is as comforting as a thick wool blanket on a cold winter’s night. Of course you cannot say the Truth – it never happened. But you can, if need be, say the right thing.

The answer to the reader’s question is simple. It doesn’t matter what you say. It matters what you know. Before you say a word, ask yourself “Am I knowing (and not merely mouthing words) that God is All?” If your answer is an absolute “Yes,” you will know what to say, and when to say it.

Stand Firm In What You Know

In answering “Yes, I do know that God is All,” do you think a human identity can do that? It can’t. It is God, as you, answering with such unwavering certainty. Therefore, it is Love answering. As Love, you will say and do the loving thing. Sometimes that loving thing is to say and do nothing. Nothing! Stand firm knowing God is All.

What Are These Evil Appearances?

itsallgood

Appearances Of Evil Alert You To The Reality Of Perfection

Let’s now perceive how it is, and why it is, that any appearance of evil is not evil – that it really serves a good purpose. If the fulfillment of any purpose is good, the impulsion behind this purpose has to be good, and not evil. The mistake lies in our misconception of the meaning of that which we have called evil.

Just as a mistake in mathematics calls your attention to the perfect mathematical fact, so it is that any appearance of evil serves to call your attention to some specific aspect of good, or God. God is Perfection; thus Perfection is a universal as well as a specific fact. Any appearance of imperfection serves to call your attention to the perfect Principle, which is Perfection.

Evil Can Only Be Troublesome If You Think It Is Real

A mistake can seem to be troublesome, or evil, only so long as it is mistaken for a fact. One your attention is focused upon the perfect fact, the mistake is canceled. It simply vanishes.

You do not resist the mistake (evil). You do not attempt to overcome it, or to oppose it. You know it to be a mistake, and that ends it as far as you are concerned. The seeming evil served its purpose, and your attention is now focused upon the perfect Principle. You keep your attention focused upon the universal and the specific fast until the evidence of this fact is apparent.

You can never make a figure 5 become a figure 4. Neither can you make an appearance of imperfection become perfect. Your awareness of Perfection is the revelation and the evidence of that which is revealed.

You Are Always Abundantly Supplied

For example, it may appear that an appearance of lack seems to be present. This is not evil. Rather, it should be considered as merely the signal signifying the presence of infinite, omnipresent Supply, which means that you will immediately contemplate the universal fact – omnipresent Supply.

When you are constantly and consciously attentive to the perfect fact – and only this fact – the evidence of its presence is inevitable.

Do You Want To Live Truth?

You-Are-The-Way-The-Truth-And-The-Life

The Question

“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.

Are You Really Seeing That? Because It Doesn’t Exist

Please Answer These Questions

Reader, I have two questions to ask you:

  1. If you visit a loved one in the hospital and see his body apparently ravaged by disease, is that how God is seeing your loved one?
  2. If you see co-workers in a heated argument in the workplace, is God seeing that?

Message From An Enlightened Reader

An enlightened reader wrote to me recently, and I am sharing this portion of his email.

“My observation is that I cannot be doing what God is not doing. I cannot be what God is not. There are no parts of God that aren’t illumined. Therefore, I don’t need to do anything to attain anything that God is already, because God doesn’t do that. I have an issue with sitting and doing something in order to see some light because, for me, the way I am seeing things is how God is seeing things. I don’t have the power to see anything else that is not God.”

Don’t Claim You Are Seeing As God Sees If You Are Seeing These

First, you have to admit this reader is enlightened. What he writes is the Absolute Truth. No one can object to a single statement he writes. However, the italicized section warrants clarification. The writer says, as many readers feel, “the way I am seeing things is how God is seeing things.” But, if you are seeing:

  • fleshy bodies
  • old or young bodies
  • solid substances (forms)
  • collisions (accidents)
  • sick bodies
  • dying leaves or dead bodies
  • evil personalities
  • atrocities
  • lack,

you are not seeing as God sees. God is All, and God cannot see what God is not. God is none of the above, and anyone who seems to see these (self included) is not seeing at all – “having eyes they see not” (Mark 8:18).

Illumined Seeing Is God Seeing

It is true that I and many other authors suggest listening and hearing the still small voice of Consciousness. Inevitably, this results in seeing the Light that Is existence. What the Holy Bible says is true: “God is light.” This is why illumination results in seeing Existence as Light. Only illumined seeing is God seeing. God is nowhere to be found in a fleshy, material, human existence.

I admit that these illumined experiences do seem fleeting and short-lived. However, once you’ve seen existence as it IS, you are never deceived by the impostor of a material world of born and aging bodies, death, evil, lack and accidents. That first flash of illumination stays with you forever. It resets your Reality base.

Let’s Go Back To The Beginning

Let’s go back to those opening questions and look at the answers:

  1. God being All, and God being Perfection, God could not possibly see the disease that God is not being. God is not seeing a disease ravaged body or identity. What God Be’s is what God sees.
  2. God is All, and God is Love. God sees the activity of Love right there where discord seems to be present.

It’s What You Know – Not Who You Know

d360dbb0-a374-498d-939e-27941d9a2377

The excerpt below is by Marie Watts from Fulfillment of Purpose. You can order her books from Mystics Of The World

How To Find A Job, Home, Companionship, Etc.

Suppose, for instance, you are unemployed. It may even seem that there is no employment in sight. Then, too, you may feel that your training and experience qualify you for a certain type or work or profession, and that you cannot function successfully in another type of activity.

Perhaps you feel that if you could just “make the right contact,” you would find employment that was suitable for you. This is a trap, beloved one, and you will not be caught in this duality, neither will you accept limitations.

There Is No Other Consciousness

You know there is no Consciousness separate and apart from the Universal, indivisible Consciousness that you are. You also know that every Identity is the very same Consciousness that you are. You know there IS NO DIVISION IN OR AS THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT YOU ARE, AND THAT YOU CANNOT CONTACT ANY OTHER CONSCIOUSNESS FOR THERE IS NO OTHER CONSCIOUSNESS FOR YOU TO CONTACT.

There Is No Time Or Space Barrier Between

Now what has take place? You have perceived the glorious omnipotent fact that anyone and everyone necessary to your employment — your fulfillment of purpose at that moment — is already present within and as the Consciousness that you are. You have realized that there is no “time” lapse in or as your awareness of this Truth. Furthermore, there is no “time” lapse or “space” lapse that can even seem to act as a barrier between you and anyone and everyone who is necessary to your completeness.

When you have contemplated in the foregoing way, you may feel that you should make a phone call, write a letter, or take a walk in a certain area. Again, you will realize that this is your Universal — as well as your specific — Consciousness knowing what it should know this moment.

You act without thought according to this prompting or impulsion and, no doubt, you will discover why you felt impelled to make the call, write the letter, or take the walk.

Watch Your Motive!

Right here, you must be very alert. If you do any of these things hoping you will “contact” someone who will be instrumental in helping you to find employment, you may be disappointed. It just doesn’t work this way. You “take no thought.” You simply act in this way because you feel impelled to act. It is well to give no consideration to that which seems to be the problem at this point.

Wonderful Things Are Happening

Wonderful things have taken place when all concern for the solution of any seeming problem is transcended. You see, once having contemplated that which is true, you know that the Truth you have perceived is evident. Therefore, you no longer are concerned about it, or with it.

Are These Your Questions Too?

handwritten letter

About seven weeks ago, Trevor, a reader of Absolutely Yours, sent me the perfect email – perfect because in one email he asks many questions that people have asked over the years. Because I wanted to thoroughly address the questions Trevor asked, without being too wordy, it has taken many weeks to respond to his communication. Below is Trevor’s email.

I do enjoy your blogs – Perhaps it is easy to write about Truth, but what you write about is it your experience or just pretty thoughts? Take your blog for instance “Escaping The Dream of Human Existence.”
Questions:

  • Do I have a mind that is aware of a material or human existence? You must believe in this mind otherwise you would not write blogs. You believe there is an audience that can be reached … you get my drift.
  • So many Truth writers there are, but, do they practice what they preach?
  • What is your purpose?

I know that we seem to be in a world of form but need not be of it where God sends His Teachers. Not that they are part of it but for a moment leave the Light and enter the darkness to show forth the Light.

Peace and Love,
Trevor

To make the answers to Trevor’s questions clear to you, I decided to approach them in sections that address most of Trevor’s questions.

Is what I write my experience, or just pretty thoughts?

In my early years as a minister, I made the decision not to preach anything that I have not experienced to some degree. When I write or teach about instantaneous healing, it’s because I have experienced it myself. When I write about taking no human action to find employment, it’s because that’s how I found employment. When I write about seeing the Body of Light, or hearing the Music of the Spheres, it’s because that’s what I saw and heard.

Most of the Truth writers I know are writing from their experiences. More importantly, most of the Truth writers I know have withheld writing about experiences that totally defy what the so-called intellect deems possible. Pretty thoughts and well-crafted words without genuine experience are pointless.

Reader, this is the most important thing. Through prayer, continue to explore the Allness of God. Do not be deterred! The experiences that reveal themselves will never frighten you. They will astound you.

You must believe in this mind otherwise you would not write blogs. You must believe an audience can be reached.

A Practitioner who takes calls from those who seem to be dealing with tumors, growths, and other bodily troubles does not respond to the caller because she believes that these troubles exist and can be healed. She doesn’t even acknowledge the reality of an identity or body that could possibly experience these troubles.

Similarly, I don’t write blogs because I believe in a human mind that can be helped, but because I know (despite convincing suggestions otherwise) that there is only One Mind.

Trevor, I write Truth because, as Truth is All, what else is there to write? I speak Truth because, as Truth is All, what else is there to speak?

I could write long discourses about the circus-like machinations of the American political scene, but it would be a lie. I could write about the health benefits of tea made from the carcasses of dung beetles, but that too would be a lie. Writing about anything other than Truth is wasted paper, ink and pixels.

As far as that audience to reach. I wish I believed there was one; then I would actively market this blog. Years ago I wrote a post (don’t know if it transferred to Absolutely Yours) for performers – how they can be more effective performers. It was based on my years and “struggles” performing as a classical pianist.

In a nutshell: Know that you and the so-called audience IS ONE – not two. That’s the mindset that I write these posts. It’s the only possible way.

I always open my lectures with these words. “Do not look up to the speaker. I, the speaker, and you, the listener, IS ONE MIND. You are both the speaker and the listener. Even when you read the words of Christ Jesus, know that they are the words of ‘your’ Mind.” This is true of the books and posts that I write.

Do the Truth writers practice what they preach?

In short, yes. But let me open the curtain so that you can peek in on the process.

It all starts when the writer experiences some form of Illumination. This is when he has a momentary experience of existence as it IS – as spiritual Form and Substance. Usually this is a Light-filled experience. The body, plants, buildings, etc., are literally seen as spiritual Form. Words cannot adequately describe this experience.

Although the experience only lasts for seconds before the writer seems to slip back into a seeming material world, he knows that he will never again be deceived by the appearance of a material world.

The Truth writer writes from this point of reality. He lives from this point of reality.

In these high times, so-called miracles are experienced. The chains of time and space are broken, and a person may find himself being there without having to travel there.

Sometimes these experiences appear as “heavenly helpers,” when human help is not available. But, Trevor, you do get my drift. Great stuff happens.

What is your purpose?

Trevor, I’m glad you asked about my purpose, because at one time I was confused. Early on, long before I wrote God Is All, I wrote for a spiritual journal expressly for the purpose of enlightening the readers. (A lot of minds going on here, and mine was ego driven.)

Once I realized God to be the only Mind – the Mind that is both reader and writer, everything changed. As stated, I write (hopefully no more books) because only Truth is worth writing.

There was no intention of writing God Is All (the first book). One night I was just about pulled out of bed and dragged to the computer. I started writing, but it was more like I was taking dictation. I didn’t think the words. I just wrote the words that came. The book was finished in three (3) weeks.

The file sat in my computer for several years. I had completely forgotten about it. One day a friend was “playing” on the computer and found the file. He said, “Allen, what’s this? It’s really good. Did you write this? You should publish it.”

I did and God Is All has been reaching readers all over the world for over twenty years.

My purpose is BEING.

I know we live in a world of form.

Form is real. The way we seem to see Form is not real. That’s the simple Truth. Two people could be sitting in the same room – one seeing Form as it really is.

The person really seeing would see the same books, tables, chairs and bric-a-brac as the other person. The only difference, these Forms would not have density or solidity. Think of a rainbow. It has shape, but there is no solidity or density. This is how Form actually appears (or the best way words can describe it).

The thing to get is that FORM IS REAL. There is nothing material about FORM.

The Immediate Supply For Your Seeming Need

wealth

This excerpt is by Marie Watts from The Ultimate

When once the infinite Omnipresence of Wealth is revealed, there can be no lack, limitation, or poverty. It is from this awareness of what constitutes wealth that the immediate supply for any seeming need is realized.

Wealth is Consciousness YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS FORMED. It makes no difference what aspect of wealth is the necessity of the moment, whether it is for health, home, money or whatever, your Omnipresent Consciousness can, and does form Itself into that which meets the need .

You can see from this that there is no such thing as a need. How can you need anything that is forever contained within your completeness? There is no separation between the essential and the supply; and there is no separation between the essential and the manifestation of the supply formed into whatever is essential.

Don’t Shortchange Yourself

This excerpt is by Lillian DeWaters from her pamphlet The Time Is At Hand.

Why Do This To Yourself?

Why stop at saying that the Truth of things is perfect and that Heaven is Perfect in Itself, when it is your self, your body and your experience which you wish to see picture forth the “Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory?”

Open your vision to the fact that there is only one Being, and that this is your Being. For Being is not dual. Claim the completeness, the infinity, the perfection of your entire Being which includes your Body

Hold The High Watch

All creation is ideal, lovely, enchanting and satisfying. There are really no “others,” for in your universe you stand as one with all. In such realization of Yourself as The One there is no mistake to be corrected, no sickness to be healed, no person to be redeemed.

The seeming problem disappears: simply to withdraw from all belief of duality, multiplicity and sense of otherness, and to hold the High Watch, brings instead the vision of the completeness and infinity of all Good, all Health, all Abundance, all Joy now here and anywhere.

In proportion as one can rise to perform this act of the Truth can he fulfill the commission “Heal the sick and raise the dead.” And who are the sick? Who are the dead? Verily, who can they be and where can they exist if the Self be ALL? The commission is fulfilled in Revelation.

The Proof Of God’s Allness In Your Life

proof

Oops! That’s What I’ve Been Doing

Hoping and waiting for the evidence of God’s Allness are the culprits that seem to hide the experience of Truth’s evidence. Hoping, wishing, and waiting for the evidence of Truth to appear is a flat-out denial that God Is All. How subtle this is!

Many sincere “students” of Truth are unknowingly investing their attention in the denial of the established fact that God Is All. Every time the truth of God’s Allness is contemplated with the hope and wish for its evidence, the Fact is at once denied.

It is a self-defeating practice to contemplate the fact of God’s Allness, and at the same time hope for health, a windfall, or a change of some appearance for the better. Simply put, most people lack the experience of the evidence of Truth because they, in their hopes and wishes for such evidence, are actually denying its presence as an already established fact.

I’ll Try This Instead

… Beloved, no change is needed in your life at all. Your Life is the evidence of God – pure, holy and perfect in every way. Simply stay with the Fact that God is the only Evidence evidenced. Nothing needs to be added to or removed from your Life.

All Of A Sudden It Was Over

I Had To Get Out Of This Dark Place

You won’t believe this. Last Sunday afternoon I nosedived into a dark and gloomy state of depression. For an hour, I rolled and wallowed around in this dark “mental” funk. I wanted to talk to someone, so I picked up the phone and called a good friend. After rushing through the social courtesies, I warned “Today is your lucky day. I don’t usually do this, but I’ve got to vent.” She endured my venting for a blink-of-the-eye moment. (I didn’t expect much more.) Then, she took a courageous stab or two at lifting my spirits. She didn’t.

And It Didn’t Take Long

I hung up and hurriedly crawled back to that dark place. Reader, I don’t frequent this place. My visits are few and years between. While sitting in my favorite chair, staring at the wall, that line from the blog I posted on August 19 – Don’t Try To Still Your Mind whispered to me: “This is not Mind. It is not me.” I realized that the mind thinking these thoughts and feeling this way is not Mind (God). Therefore it is no part of me. It was like someone snatched a black towel from over my eyes. All was Light and laughter, and I never went back to that dark place.

Reader – dark, depressing, negative thoughts are not Mind. They are not you. “You are the Light of the world.”
