Remember This

remember

During a challenging time, I was all out of prayers and words. Desperately, I cried out, “Consciousness, you’ve got to give me something – anything – to hold on to.”

I waited in silence, but nothing happened. When I was just about to open my eyes, the words came, and they were enough.

Never forget, You Are the One Presence.
Never forget, You Are the One Power.
Never forget, You Are Eternal Life.
Never forget, You Are the Light that is the World.
Never forget, What I AM, You Are.

As there is no personal Truth, I leave you with the same words – slightly altered.

Always remember, You are the One Presence.
Always remember, You are the One Power.
Always remember, You are Eternal Life.
Always remember, You are the Light that is the World.
Always remember, What I AM, You Are.

The Solution To Any Problem

The Solution To Your Problem Is A Spiritual One

There is an answer – a solution – to every problem! If you appear to be facing a problem, there is an immediate solution. No matter how big, longstanding, or overwhelming the problem seems to be, there is a solution. It is a spiritual solution.

Despite all appearances, this is a spiritual universe – chock full of the Spirit of God. Your Life is Spirit. Your Body is Spirit. All things and all people in your world are Spirit. This is a spiritual universe. That is why the solution to your seeming troubles must be a spiritual one.

Get Out Of The Mud

You know, as well as I, that this Spiritual Universe seems to be composed of matter. Yet, it is just that – a seeming. It’s not so. All of our problems are like the material world – something that seems to be but is not. The solution is not to play around in the mud of materiality trying to make better mud pies, but to get out of the mud altogether. In short, the solution to any problem is a realization of what is (Truth).

Don’t You Just Love This Quote?

I’m sure I quoted the following passage in a previous blog post, but it’s always been one of my favorites from Infinite Way founder, Joel Goldsmith:

“I do not 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 develop tomorrow or next year.”

In this short excerpt, Joel Goldsmith reveals the one approach that is guaranteed to solve your problem and ensure that you never see it again.

Here is a paraphrase of the excerpt that makes its point and purpose clearer:

What I want is a greater realization of God’s Presence revealing the nothingness of this seeming problem. I don’t just want the problem to go away. What I want is to perceive God’s Allness so clear that the seeming problem is eliminated permanently.

Read the excerpt and paraphrase one more time. What do you notice? Yes, you’re right. Both examples use the seeming problem as a redirection tactic to focus your attention on God-realization.

When you put this into practice, your attention is no longer on the problem. You’ve jumped off of the mental merry-go-round trying to solve the problem. Now, your focus is on God and nothing but God. Let’s take a look at how this is put into practice.

From Theory To Practice

Eric was in a tight corner. Unemployed, he hadn’t paid his mortgage in months. Time ran out. Eric had to come up with the money or lose his home. His mind went into spin cycle trying to come up with a human solution, but there was none.

Back against the wall, he thought to himself, “Well, I haven’t tried prayer. What do I have to lose? Now, according to Goldsmith, I’m not supposed to pray about the problem. Crazy as it sounds, I’m supposed to pray for God-realization. I’m going to try it, but I know I have to be really interested in God and not in the money. That’s the hard part.” In those first few prayers, Eric wanted money – not God. But he got there.

Now and again, his mind wanted to scurry back to the problem, but Eric was alert enough to know what his real desire was. He understood that this apparent problem was merely drawing his attention to something, and that something was a FACT OF GOD.

Forgetting all about money, Eric focused on discovering a God-fact – any God-fact. Understanding the importance of this discovery, he said to himself, “I don’t want this problem to be resolved until I discover the God-fact that will do away with this appearance once and for all.” He meant it.

Eric was guaranteed to discover this fact, and he did. His problem was resolved in a seemingly miraculous way. It’s easy to think the surprise check that came in the mail was the resolution of his problem. But, that is not true. The resolution was the discovery of the God-fact.

Again, there is a spiritual solution to every problem. Should a problem ever appear in your life, you can use Eric’s story to approach the resolution of your problem in the very same way.

Don’t Fear The Pandemic — Or Anything

fn

Masks Can’t Hide Their Joy

Churches are reopening in some parts of the United States. Like cold molasses, people are slowly dripping into their chosen churches. Even mask-covered faces can’t hide the joy of people reuniting with their church families.

It’s been slow. Each week one or two more people show up – at least at the church I pastor.

When my church decided to reopen, I suggested that we take a poll to see how many people were comfortable coming back. Enough replied, “I’m ready and I’m not afraid,” so we decided to reopen. But many – far too many – are afraid. One woman said, “I will support the church financially, but I’m scared. I won’t return until this thing is over.”

I commend the people who have honestly admitted, “I’m afraid.” Now, they can take the necessary steps to move out of that space.

Did The Fearful Admit This, Too?

There is something larger here than mere church attendance. Mind you, these are the same people who, for years, sat in church and mouthed the words, “God is the one Presence and Power – in, through and as all the universe.” I wonder if they have been equally honest with themselves and admitted, “Although I came to church every Sunday and affirmed God is the only Power, I must not know it. If I did, I wouldn’t be afraid?”

This is the kind of courage and honesty that is needed to move out of this seeming trench of fear. Be clear. Moving out is a must. One cannot allow themselves to stay in the mindset that something is going on other than God. Why? Because it’s a fictitious mindset.

How Long Are You Going To Loiter In Fear

No one can continue to read the books and listen to the lectures proclaiming God’s Allness and expect to experience this Truth as a practical reality if they allow themselves to loiter in fear. Fear is not a comfortable experience. Nothing unreal can ever be comfortable.

Reader, perhaps the coronavirus (or something else) has you cowering in fear. If that’s so, I have two questions for you. Are you going to linger in fear? Or, are you going to say to yourself, “I’m not willing to stay here. I believe in my heart that God is the only Presence and I’m going to dig deeper in silent prayer until I strike a clearer realization that God is All?”

It Starts With The Heart

People have said, “Allen, I’m afraid but I don’t want to be. How do I get out of this place?” Here’s a suggestion on how to proceed. First set your heart on knowing God’s Allness. It starts there. If your heart is not in it, nothing will come of it.

Then, in your quiet time, ask of your impersonal God Consciousness, “Is there another Presence and Power other than the Presence You are?” Listen. Listen expectantly. Listen intently. You will strike oil. The answer will be revealed. Your fearless Self will be revealed in all its resplendent magnificence.

Should I Or Shouldn’t I

panda

“Whoa, Allen! Put the brakes on, and back it up. In your book, God is All, you said that we should only pray for the realization of God’s Allness, but in your last post, you encouraged us to call a Practitioner about our mundane concerns. I’m confused. Should we, or should we not pray about so-called human concerns?”

That’s the email I opened a week or two ago. Okay, I did add a few words for dramatic effect, but it’s pretty much word-for-word.

I’m glad this person reached out to me for this opportunity to clear up any confusion our readers might have. Yes, prayer should only be for the realization of God’s Allness. And, yes you should contact a Practitioner if you seem to have a problem. The two fit hand in glove. You enjoy the freedom to keep your attention rightly focused and have your problem resolved.

Sometimes stuff happens – or at least appears to. Despite knowing that God is All, the appearance of disease, lack, grief or trouble pops up. Naturally, you want this appearance to dis-appear. Quickly. Yet, it doesn’t. What do you do?

In the face of seeming trouble, you don’t have to come down from your high place of God-Realization to monkey around with the appearance. You can still keep your prayerful focus on God-Realization. Let the Practitioner deal with the appearance.

“Well, Allen,” you may ask, “isn’t this just shifting the problem over to the Practitioner to focus on?” Not at all. The Practitioner knows that it is nothing. Even as you are presenting it as something, she knows that Omnipresent Perfection is All that is present, active and evident.

Working With A Practitioner

help-153094_1280_pixabay_openclipart-vectors

So many questions have come in about Practitioners that I’m devoting this post to those most frequently asked.

What happened to the Practitioners List that used to appear on this blog? I tried clicking on the link and nothing was there.

Oops! My mistake. I thought I removed all the dead links. The Practitioners List was discontinued a few years ago. Here’s why.

Many people reading our blog have never heard of a Practitioner before. They do not understand that like doctors, nurses, and plumbers, Practitioners are paid for their services. Many people were getting the help they requested but were not paying the Practitioner.

On the other hand, there were some Practitioners on the list who did not provide adequate service and still expected to be paid. As many of you know, I hold firm that shoddy “work” does not deserve compensation.

Finally, some of our readers have been used to working with Christian Science Practitioners who are available any hour of the day. There were complaints about the availability of the listed Practitioners. One or two, if you recall, lived out of the country and the time-zone issue kicked in.

For these reasons, I thought it best to discontinue the list.

How long should I work with a Practitioner?

What would trigger such a question? Mainly, cost and effectiveness, and both deserve some attention here.

If cost is your concern, most likely you have worked with a Christian Science Practitioner in the past. They are the only Practitioners that charge per call and send a monthly invoice.

I will say this about every Christian Science Practitioner I know. They are sincere, dedicated people and will work with you. Simply tell your Practitioner that you are concerned about the cost – especially if costs are mounting without seeing any results.

I know some Practitioners reading this post will take exception to what follows, but let’s look at the facts. The whole Practitioner model is supposed to be based on Christ Jesus’ method of healing. How many times did it take for Christ to get it right? How many “treatments” did He give?

If a Practitioner is working a long time on a majority of the calls that come in, trust me, there’s nothing wrong with the caller. It’s the Practitioner – myself included.

Spiritual “healing” is the natural offshoot of Understanding. (I capitalize the word because I mean Understanding the Allness of God.) It is not a thing in and of itself. If a majority of the cases seem to take a while, the Practitioner needs to take some time off for greater spiritual clarity in order to reach that Understanding.

But, Allen, some Practitioners do this for a living and can’t afford to take time off.” Any Practitioner who “heals for a living” has either missed the boat or boarded the wrong one. You don’t heal for a living. Christ Jesus healed BECAUSE of his living. He healed BECAUSE of his knowing.

Reader, you heal because of your knowing. Healing is incidental to your knowing. Knowledge is king. Any other approach and the Practitioner risks falling into a ditch of nonsense screaming “I need sick people so I can put a roof on the house and get new tires for the car.”

I still haven’t answered the question of how long to work with a Practitioner. I’m going to take a different approach to this question by answering a different question: Why would I continue to work with a Practitioner?

  • In the case of a so-called incurable condition, it’s obvious why you would continue your work with a Practitioner. There’s no other help.
  • You want a spiritual solution to the problem. You know that anything less than a spiritual solution (based on God’s Allness) is just a fix-for-the-moment. The real solution is spiritual realization – either yours or the Practitioner’s.
  • You are confident that you are working with the right Practitioner and want to continue until the problem is resolved.

I once read that Practitioners would rather you call about prayer for spiritual enlightenment rather than all this other human stuff people call for? Is that true?

No! And it’s the most ludicrous thing I’ve ever heard.

When Christ Jesus was in Capernaum, he visited a home and started teaching. Rumor spread that he was at the house, and a large crowd gathered. The house was packed.

Four men, concerned about their sick friend, carried him to the home where Jesus was teaching. When they arrived, they couldn’t get in. Determined, they went to the roof, broke through it and lowered their friend down into the room. After all of that, do you think the first thing they did was look up to Christ Jesus and said, “Please give my friend spiritual enlightenment?”

When the disciples sensed that the multitudes were starving in the desert, does the Bible record that they asked Jesus for enlightenment? In any of the healing miracles, can you find one case where the request was for spiritual enlightenment? No, you can’t. And you cannot find anywhere in the Bible where Jesus denied someone a healing because they didn’t ask for enlightenment.

No one should ever think that a Practitioner is a genie out of the bottle, and no one should ever become dependent on a Practitioner. However, there is a higher cause to the work of the Practitioner. That cause is to show that the solution to every seeming problem is a spiritual solution.

As the Practitioner is doing nothing but knowing the Allness of God, it is proof positive that THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ALLNESS OF GOD IS THE SOLUTION TO EVERY SEEMING PROBLEM.

I have been a Practitioner for years and have been dealing with a health challenge of my own. Should I continue taking calls?

By all means, if it feels right to take a “case,” take it. Some Practitioners have done their best work while dealing with personal challenges. However, don’t be lax. Do clear up your own issue – by spiritual realization of course. In the long run, it will help your practice.

Let’s say that you seem to be dealing with a long-standing lung condition. It’s been clinging to you like a tree monkey. Finally, through a clear realization of God’s Allness, the matter is resolved. From this point on, it is likely that anyone who calls with this same condition will be healed instantly. Why? Because here you are absolutely clear on the nothingness of nothing. Most likely, from this point on, many of the calls you get will be related to this seeming condition. That’ll be explained in another post.

Easy Living

God Is All

Something Wonderful Just Fell In Your Lap

What if you did follow Christ’s counsel to “seek first the kingdom of God?” Daily, you’d pray to know, understand, and even experience this kingdom. Soon, according to Christ’s promise, you would find this kingdom of God. You’d have struck gold.

Now your life is transformed. First, there’s the mind-blowing realization that the God you’ve been seeking, you ARE. Your world view changes. Everything, and everyone, is seen in a new light – the Light of God’s Presence. It’s wonderful.

Most astonishing, is that many of the things you struggled to attain, effortlessly fall in your lap. Isn’t that what Christ promised? “…and all these things shall be added.” And, it was all so easy. That’s my point: Spiritual living is easy.

When You Think About It, Human Living Is Hard

Why, then, do people say spiritual living is difficult? After all, the foundation of spiritual living is simple: God is All. Easy peasy. Go back to the beginning of this post and review the process. The prayer focus was on God and making God discoveries. Without any effort, those God discoveries revealed more of God’s Infinite Goodness as daily wonder-filled living experiences. Again, easy peasy.

However, spiritual living can seem to be hard as a stone wall. When prayer is adulterated by human desire, everything falls to pieces – useless pieces. When prayer is used to heal, prosper, bless, and enhance, things go haywire. “Allen, I don’t understand. I affirmed. I sat in the silence, and I contemplated, but nothing happened. I wasn’t healed. The job didn’t come through, and I’m still broke.” After weeks of praying to fix it, or get it, and the thing isn’t fixed or attained, frustration and doubt take over. God’s Allness is questioned, and from this point it’s all downhill, backwards on ice.

Is spiritual living, living without? No! Remember, “and all these things shall be added.” Health is the added thing. Prosperity is the added thing. All that which makes for “good living” are the added things, and you should enjoy them all.

Face this fact: Human living is hard. Starting and attempting to live from the false premise that you are separated from God and everything else is hard living.

You spend your waking hours struggling, fighting, and clawing to get the things your heart desires. Once you manage to get just a few of these things, you worry and scramble to maintain them. Then, there are trials and tribulations – one after another. That’s human living, and it’s hard living.

A Wonderful Life Of Discovery

Spiritual living is true living. And it’s effortless living. Spiritual living is a life of discovery – God discovery. It’s a life of discovering the nature of God, your Identity, your Body, and your World, and all of these awe-inspiring discoveries happen in the stillness of silent prayer.

Each new discovery unveils more of God’s Perfection in (as) your Life. They don’t create more good in your life, for all the goodness of God is already present. Your discoveries simply disclose them as practical, ready-to-be-enjoyed experiences.

Try It For Yourself

Don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself. Jump, heart first, into the exciting world of God-discovery. Below are some helps.

  • Stop working on a problem. It’s all your “work” that seems to keep the problem in place.
  • Set your prayerful attention on one thing only – discovering Truth from within.
  • Before you get down to the business of praying, state your intention. It may be something like this. “I’m here to discover more Truth.”
  • Listen, expecting to make a spiritual discovery.

How long to listen? Until you get antsy. Then, get up and go about your business. Do this daily until you make a God-discovery. You will. And these discoveries will reveal more of God’s Presence in (as) your daily affairs.

I will not be surprised to get an email from you saying, “Allen, so many wonderful things are happening, and it’s been so easy.”

All You Need To Know About Revelation

happy

I write a lot about Revelation. Outside of a few authors, not much is written about it. In this post, my intention is to share what is essential to know about Revelation and clear away some of the cloudy misconceptions about it. Let’s get right to it.

REVELATION IS A NATURAL EXPERIENCE

There’s nothing supernatural or mysterious about Revelation. Although it doesn’t seem to be, Revelation is your natural experience. REVELATION IS YOUR MIND KNOWING GOD’S ALLNESS, FRAMED IN THE WORDS AND LANGUAGE THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH. If you are French speaking, you will not experience Revelation in Farsi. Furthermore, Revelation may be experienced without words, but that’s for another post.

Your Mind, being the Mind of God, is always knowing God’s Allness – even now.

Revelation seems mysterious because it’s often experienced as occasional flashes of spiritual insight. Yet, Revelation is happening all the time.

Do you remember, as a child, being totally engrossed in a television show or computer game only to hear your mother say, “Didn’t you hear me?” No, you didn’t hear her, because your attention was focused elsewhere. It’s the same with Revelation. It’s going on all the time, but while you are focused on the fiction of human phenomena, you don’t seem to “hear” it.

REVELATION IS SELDOM EXPERIENCED WHEN YOU ARE TRYING FOR IT

Some people, serious about this “God business,” approach prayer with the same exhausting effort of a professional bodybuilder working out in the gym. They strain and labor for Revelation. The prayers and meditations are laced with anxiety. Nothing good ever comes out of this.

Most often, Revelation is experienced while you are sipping coffee at a neighborhood bistro, leisurely strolling the neighborhood, or gently squeezing the kumquats in the supermarket.

Your quiet time of contemplation opens the gates of Revelation, but you may not experience it while praying or contemplating. The important thing is this: stop trying.

REVELATION = DEMONSTRATION

This is the magic, but often ignored, formula. No Revelation = no demonstration.

While nearly drowning in a sea of debt, Linda Little repeated the words “All that the Father has is mine.” She said the words all day, every day, for weeks. Sinking deeper in debt, she said to me, “Allen, this Truth stuff doesn’t work.”

“Linda,” I said, “you repeated the words of Christ Jesus. Were they revealed to you, or were you merely saying words you read in the Bible?” She confessed that she was merely repeating words she read.

This is not witchcraft where mere incantation leads to demonstration. The formula restated is: TRUTH REVEALED = TRUTH DEMONSTRATED. Yet …

REVELATION IS NOT CAUSATION

Revelation does not cause good things to happen in your life. Revelation does not heal your body, nor does it fill your wallet. And, of course, Revelation does not make God be present.

Imagine that you are searching for a small gold screw in a dimly lit room. You need more light, so you grab your new LED flashlight. Shining it on the floor, you exclaim, “There it is! Right in front of me!”

Did the flashlight create the screw? Did it place the screw in front of you? Or, did the flashlight merely reveal the presence of the screw?

Revelation merely reveals the presence of what is already present. It reveals the whole body right where the sick body seemed to be in a darkened sense of reality. It reveals ever-present abundance right where lack seemed to be.

In Truth, there is no cause AND effect. There is just God being All.

YOU ARE THE REVELATION YOU ARE SEEKING

The reason why Revelation is a normal experience is because YOU ARE THE REVELATIONS THAT YOU SEEM TO SEEK. This fact eliminates all the unnecessary struggle.

Yes, you are the Revelation. You are the source and essence of Divine Revelation. Precept by precept, we are going to see why this is true.

  • God is All
  • God, being All, is the absolute Truth
  • Only Truth can be revealed
  • Truth revealed is God revealed
  • God is the Revelation
  • You and God are One
  • YOU ARE THE REVELATION

Contemplate these ideas. For the next few weeks, review them daily. Presently, you will see for yourself that everything written above is true.

Revelation Is A Normal Experience

The Backstory

Here’s the backstory of this post. Before Marie Watts (The Ultimate) “passed,” she talked incessantly about her latest manuscript. “This book must be published,” she said. “It’s the most radical thing I’ve ever written.” I was just as excited about its publication as she was.

The book was never published. However, I knew the manuscript was kept in a box of her private things, and occasionally, when I talked to Jacqueline, her granddaughter, I hinted at the manuscript. She never took the bait. For a few years I wondered what could be more radical than her last books. I wanted to see that manuscript. What follows, in this post, is how I satisfied my curiosity.

Why Did They Throw My Book Away?

My first book, God is All, has seen more trash cans than a city sanitation worker. I’ve seen folk toss the book aside in a fit of suppressed rage. Others have confessed to throwing it away – even burning it. And it’s all because of a few sentences in the first chapter of the book. Granted, those few sentences compel the reader to confront what they truly know about God.

Here is the excerpt: “We cannot live parasitically off of another’s realization of Truth … however each and every person must come into his own recognition of who and what he is via revelation and realization.”

These words provoke the reader to think the following: “Everything I know about God, and everything I know about my spiritual identity, I’ve learned from a book or a tape. Nothing has been revealed. I’ve been living parasitically off of Joel Goldsmith, Marie Watts, Alfred Aiken, etc. I really don’t know anything. Hmmph, I don’t like the way this book makes me feel. I’ll show him just what I think about his book.” Right here you can see God is All flying into a nearby trash receptacle.

You Already Know All The Truth There Is To Know

Often, I open my seminars by asking “How much of what you know about God is from something you read or heard?” Asking for a show of hands, I proceed, “How much of what you know about God is by direct inner revelation?” No hands go up.

Where I’m going with these questions is summed up in these words. ALL THE TRUTH YOU WILL EVER READ OR HEAR IS ALREADY IN YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS. IT WAS THERE BEFORE YOU EVER READ OR HEARD IT, AND IT’S BETTER TO GET IT THERE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE.

Don’t Settle For Quotitis

Along the way, I’ve met many people in the advanced stages of “quotitis.” Perhaps you’ve met some yourself. These people can quote long passages from the Holy Bible, Science and Health, and books by Joel Goldsmith, Marie Watts and Alfred Aiken. But, spend a day walking in their lives. There is no evidence they have ever heard or read a word of Truth. Until Truth is Self-Revealed, all you have are letters and sounds. No demonstration. The Golden Formula is Revelation = Demonstration.

Why settle for quotitis when you can experience direct Revelation? I know Revelation seems to be a supernatural experience reserved for the really serious. Not so. Revelation is a natural and constant experience of the one Infinite, Indivisible Consciousness – your Consciousness. I try to make this fact clear in the Prayer Project.

Try This Instead

Now, let’s move this blog post from theory to actual experience. Before we proceed, I acknowledge that here, lately, I’ve been playing a one-note Samba. What follows is nothing you haven’t read before. The question is: Are you doing it?

For the next few weeks, keep up your so-called spiritual practice, which hopefully includes a period of silent “listening.” Be sure you are not working on specifics, or even hoping that some situation will be worked out. Proper prayer is not the place for that. In your listening, let this be your attitude: “In these moments of silence, I’m letting Consciousness revel in its own Illumination.” Then be still (with no other motive in mind), and I guarantee you will experience how natural Revelation is.

In case you’re wondering how I satisfied my curiosity about Marie Watts unpublished book, it was by realizing any Truth in that manuscript is already in Consciousness – mine and yours.

Effortless Prayer

Allen, I read and enjoy your blog. My problem is that when I sit down to pray or contemplate, it always seems to be a struggle. After a while, I just give up. Any suggestions?

Struggle and effort should never be mentioned in the same sentence with prayer. Prayer, true prayer, is a peace-filled and joyous adventure. When effort and tension start prowling around the “prayer closet,” something is off. And usually, it’s the focus.

In most cases, effort shows up when the prayer focus is on getting or getting rid of something. Usually it’s an emergency or troubling situation where a quick resolution is wanted. Nothing good will come out of such praying or contemplating. It can’t.

Think about it. If what drives you to pray (and I use that term interchangeably with meditate or contemplate) is the problem, your attention is on the problem. Your attention is on the very thing that seems to be making you anxious and fearful. What can you expect but more anxiety and more struggle? For all that effort, you might as well stop praying and go lift a set of eighty-pound dumbbells.

Remember the Golden Rule of Prayer: Start with God, stay with God and end with God. Proper prayer is God Realization. The intent is God Realization and the result is God Realization. The absolute truth is that prayer hasn’t actually started until the moment of Realization.

If you find yourself restless at the outset of prayer, examine your motive. Ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” If your honest answer is, “I’m praying to get or fix something,” get up and do something else. Come back when your motive is purely for God (Self) realization.

Reader, have you ever sunk into the cozy comfort of an overstuffed armchair? That’s what it feels like when prayer starts with a right motive.

But, what if you can’t settle into prayer? What if the pain is so bad, or the condition so overwhelming that you can’t shake the struggle? YOU CAN! You are constituted that way. Remember, your Identity is God-Identified. Using the Sit and Repeat Method, you are going to get back to true prayer.

First, establish your motive – the joy of God Realization. When you sit down to pray, as soon as you feel anxious, get up. Do anything enjoyable. Ten minutes or so later, sit down to pray again. At the first sign of a struggle, again get up. Repeat this cycle until you can sink into the Realization of God’s Allness. You will, and you will on the very same day you try this method.

Notice, I have not addressed the problem that seemed to alarm you. That’s because once you are aware that God is All, the seeming problem will no longer be a concern. Why should it? You’ve already discovered that right there where the problem seemed to be, GOD IS.
