Did You Ever Ask This Question?

Are You Asking The Wrong Questions

Lydia gazed out of her bedroom window at the gazebo in the rose garden. She wasn’t really looking at it, for her mind nibbled away at one question: How could this happen to me?

Lydia thought to herself, “I’ve dedicated my life to this Truth. Every day, for years, I’ve contemplated God’s Allness. I’ve sat in silences listening and hearing that still small voice. No one can question my devotion to Truth, and yet this thing has happened to me. Why? How?”

When a problem seems to come out of nowhere and knocks a so-called Truth student off his feet, the first thought usually is, “How could this happen to me?” Right on its tail is “With all that I know, why did this happen to me?”

The Right Question

You’ve heard the term “barking up the wrong tree,” haven’t you? It’s a hunting term used to describe the cunning skill of the prey. The wily raccoon tricks the hunting dogs into believing he scurried up the tree. While the dogs scramble and bark at the base of the tree, the raccoon slips away. If only the dogs knew better, they would do better. When you ask the question: why is this happening to me, you are barking up the wrong tree.

God is All, and All is God. This is the fundamental fact of Life, and you could state it in many ways. You, reader, could say Love is All, Perfection is All, Light is All, or Wealth is All. The words (as long as they are consistent with the nature of God) don’t matter. It all boils down to the one fundamental fact of Life: God is All.

Questions like: “Why did this happen to me?” and “How could this happen to me?” admit that the trouble is a real presence and power. But, this can’t be. God is the only Presence and Power. Again, asking why and how questions like these is barking up the wrong tree. Nothing good can come from it.

One time, after I barked myself silly, I asked myself, “Allen, how can you say that God is All and believe that any trouble is real?” Reader, it can’t be done. The Allness of God precludes the possibility of any type of trouble.

Rather than asking why this is happening to me, it is better and more enlightening to ask IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?

Be Still And Listen

Once you ask such a question of God Consciousness (your Only Consciousness), be still and listen for the answer. If it doesn’t come right away, ask and listen again. Consciousness will answer, and the answer will amaze you. The answer will reveal the only Evidence – God.

The Importance of Constancy by Marie Watts

But, I Had Such An Incredible Morning Contemplation

So often when we contemplate in the early morning quietness, we are gloriously aware of being just what God is, and nothing else. And we are sure that we will continue to see things as they are throughout the day.

Then we embark upon our daily activities, and it seems that the Light dims, and sometimes disappears altogether. We appear to find our Self thinking, talking, and acting just as though we were born temporary human beings – WHICH WE ARE NOT. Then later in the evening we wonder why the Light that shone so beautifully in the morning contemplation seemed to disappear during the day.

We know that the Light we are cannot possibly be dimmed, nor can it disappear. But it certainly can seem to dim to the point of appearing to be extinguished.

You Are The Constancy

What are we to perceive when the Light we are seems to vary, to waver, to dim, or to disappear? We are to realize that WE ARE THE INFINITE, OMNIPRESENT, ETERNAL TRUTH THAT IS CONSTANCY. We know that we are the constant, uninterrupted Principle which is Life, Mind, Consciousness, Love. Knowing that we are all Truth, we realize that we are the ever-present Truth that is Constancy.

Thus, whenever the affairs of the day seem to become burdensome, difficult, or frustrating, it is well to withdraw for a few moments. We can then realize, in silent contemplation, that we ARE THE PRINCIPLE WHICH IS CONSTANCY ITSELF.

Also, we can perceive that we are the same Constancy that we knew our Self to be during the morning contemplation. Consciousness does not become more or less conscious. Thus there is never any more or less Constancy present as our Being.

There Is No Interruption Of Perfection

The immutable Perfection that you are is not interrupted by periods of illness or imperfection. The Constancy that you are does not fluctuate. The Joy you are does not change to sadness. The Peace you are does not become disturbed. The eternal Identity you is a constant Identity. You are not an identity that is incarnated, and that has to be reincarnated over and over again.

Beloved One, it would be well for you to consider this word “Constancy” in your daily contemplation. You will marvel at the revelations which will be your experience when, as full open Consciousness, the radiant Splendor YOU ARE increasingly reveals the Constancy that you are.

Racism – Seeing Its Nothingness

Oneness promo

Thanks for your positive feedback on the last post. From the feedback, I could tell that racism is a touchy subject. One reader shared his experience with racism that altered the course of this post. He made me see that this post must be more practical.

Since blog readers love list-posts, I decided to list three things you can do to perceive the nothingness of racism. And, reader, racism is a nothing. The entire history of racial prejudice is a fabrication. God Is All – always!

Racism is a nothing. But, reader, the suggestions that follow are great for seeing the nothingness of nothing.

1

Don’t Fight Discrimination

Fighting discrimination is like trying to sweep the ghost from under the bed. You can sweep for hours and never get rid of the ghost. It’s not there.

Whatever steps you are taking to fight being discriminated against, stop it. Stop running down to the Equal Employment Opportunity Office whining about how “they” are discriminating against you because of your race. Stop joining groups that fight racism. Stop marching. There are better ways to spend your time.

2

Honor Only One Power

Racism requires an impossibility. It requires the presence of two or more and, reader, there is only One Presence – God. However, if racism seems real to you, simply ask your Self this question: Is there more than one Presence? Listen for the answer. In many instances, this is all it will take to perceive that God (Love) Is All that is going on.

You have probably said to yourself many times, “God Is All.” And every time you’ve said this, you have stated a Truth. Regardless of appearances, stand by this statement and honor just only One Presence and One Power.

3

Give Up Your Racial Identity

God is not a white man.
God is not a black man.
God is not a yellow man.

Reader, you cannot say, “I and God are One,” and experience the power of this Truth while clinging to a racial sense of identity. The I that you are is infinite, indivisible, and eternal. The I that you are is pure Spirit and has never known of a material sense of Identity.

Do you feel that you are being discriminated against because you are _____________? Then stop being ___________. Stop identifying yourself as ____________. And equally important, stop identifying them (the perpetrator) as ______________.

The entire scenario of racism is fiction, so stop functioning in fiction. Get back to the FACT OF BEING – God Is All.

Closing Note

Reader, I think you get the point. Resolving racism is an inside job. It’s a matter of Conscious Awareness of God’s Allness. It is here that you perceive that you are neither a victim nor a perpetrator of racism. It is here that you perceive that racism never began.

Spiritual Celebration Of Earth Day

Earth-Day-Celebration copy

The Spiritual Way Is The Best Way

April 22, 2016 is Earth Day. For forty-six years Earth Day has focused our attention on the awareness and appreciation of this giant ball we call Earth. The purpose of Earth Day is to take better care of our planet – to stop raping this planet of its natural resources.

Since its inception, people have jumped in hoe and spade, planting trees, cleaning parks, eating cleaner, and filling recycle bins.

But, reader, you and I know that what folk think they can accomplish humanly can best be accomplished spiritually – by spiritual perception. It’s a matter of Consciousness. Rather than human busyness, life is always and only a matter of Consciousness.

Did You Realize This About Planet Earth?

In the Unity hymnbook, there is a song called “The Universe Sings.” I’m sure the melody has won the Dorky Award, but the message reveals an overlooked Truth. Here are the lyrics.

The Universe sings I Am, I Am.
The Universe rings I Am, I Am.
The Universe brings, through each atom and cell
A song of its own,
It’s singing I Am.

Every star in the sky is singing I Am.
Every bird winging by is singing I Am.
Every woman and man, everything in God’s plan
Has a song of its own,
I Am, I Am.

This song says it all: The Universe is conscious of being I AM. The Universe is conscious of being Life, Love, Light, Perfection, Spirit, etc. In short – this is a completely illumined Universe. And if the Universe is completely Illumined, Earth is completely Illumined.

Will You Join Me In A Real Earth Day Celebration?

Reader, when you joyously recognize and acknowledge the FACT that every nook and cranny of this planet Earth is Illumination Itself, you have celebrated Earth Day in the most powerful way. On April 22 – just to join in the global revelry – I’m going to sit down in my living room chair and contemplate the spiritual nature of this great and grand ball we call Earth.

Even now, as I am writing this, just thinking that Earth is just what God is brings a smile to my face. Here are my thoughts:

  • This planet Earth is Eternal Life through and through.
  • This planet Earth is Infinite, Unconditional Love.
  • This planet Earth is pure Unadulterated Perfection.
  • This planet Earth is pure Spirit without a single material element.

I am inviting you to join me in contemplating what the Earth (God’s Presence) is knowing of Itself. Reader, just for a few days, will you commit to this type of contemplation? Think of it this way: Without joining a group, lifting a shovel, or filling a bin, you can do something effective and never leave your home. You may be asking yourself, “Is this practical? What good will it do?”

Your Knowing Is Your Showing

If the suggestion in this article weren’t practical, this blog post would be a waste of your reading, and my writing time. Reader, your KNOWING of Earth’s true nature is practical, and it will appear to do much without actually doing a thing.

Your KNOWING will accomplish your heart’s sincerest desire: the SHOWING forth of Earth’s ever-present Perfection. Because of your KNOWING, you will hear reports of:

  • cleaner air and less pollution of lakes, rivers and oceans
  • animals being removed from the “Endangered Species” list
  • sightings of animals once thought to be extinct
  • abundant natural resources
  • cooperation of nations for the “greater good”

All this you will hear, but don’t be deceived. Nothing has changed. What appears as a change for the better is Earth’s ever-present perfection showing forth as your awareness and your experience. As in all things, the showing is directly related to your KNOWING.

Happy Earth Day!

A Better Understanding Of Supply

having it all - allen white
“God is my supply.”
“God is my instant, constant, and abundant supply.”

In my early days, I said these words. I believed them. And, I lived by them. There were times, back then, when I was hours away from digging under sofa cushions for money to survive. But holding fast to the principle behind those opening words saved the day.

Hasn’t Truth Become Clearer For You?

Reader, haven’t you found it to be true that as the years go by, Truth becomes clearer? Don’t you find that statements you once clung to now ring with dualism? That’s what happened to me with this whole business of supply. I realized that GOD IS NOT MY SUPPLY. I realized that THERE IS NO SUPPLY.

Supply Wreaks Of Dualism

The word “supply” wreaks of dualism. Think about it. In the case of supply, you have the thing supplied and the one being supplied with the thing. How many is that? I counted two. Reader, you know that there is only ONE PRESENCE. So, something has to be wrong with the idea of God being your supply.

You and God are ONE – not two. You and this Presence called God are One, Infinite and Inseparable. How, then, can you be supplied? You can’t.

Fulfillment Is Completeness

Instead of supply, there is CONSTANCY OF FULFILLMENT. That’s what you are. That’s what I am. Or, you could look at it as being the CONSTANCY OF COMPLETENESS – lacking nothing. Like a tough steak, you might have to chew on this awhile. Take it into your contemplation and see what is revealed.

Reader, here is why you are the CONSTANCY OF FULFILLMENT. Your I AM includes every form and Identity that exists. More than that, your I AM IS EVERY FORM AND IDENTITY that exists. This fact is your CONSTANCY OF FULFILLMENT.

You Are Not An Illusion Or Deluded

God Is All Allen White

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

What’s Really Important To You

Actually, we do arrive at the point where there is nothing in the world of appearance that is important. This does not mean that we do not experience the evidence of Perfection, Abundance, Harmony, and Joy. Indeed, we do experience this evidence.

But the evidence, in the suppositious, world of appearance, is completely unimportant. What is important is the Complete indivisible, glorious Oneness which we know our Self to be. In other words, the only thing that is important, is what we are consciously “seeing”, what we are consciously “being”. We are unconcerned about the so-called signs following. We know that the evidence has to be apparent because what we are perceiving is what we are being. And this is the very evidence itself.

When The Evidence Is Missing Check For This

So long as we seem to attach so much important to any “evidence” in the fallacious world of appearance, we are not going all the way in our conscious perception. It is this same fallacious clinging to the seeming human scene that appears to blind us to the very evidence which already is, right here and now.

Always look for the spurious sense of separation and dualism when any specific evidence of complete harmony, success, health, abundance, seems to be delayed in our experience.

All Is Inseparably One

You see, duality would have us believe that health is one aspect of our Existence, but that it is separate from wealth, peace, joy, etc. Until we have completely transcended duality, we seem to be challenged by one aspect, or what we call another aspect of inharmony or incompleteness. There can be no such thing as one aspect of the All Being, being more important than is another, because the All is inseparably One. There is no way to divide health from wealth, peace, joy, perfect harmony, and completeness.

You Are Not Deluded

It is only in the mass illusion of the apparent world of duality, that any false sense of separation seems to be evident. But this is only an illusion, evidencing its own illusory substance and activity. YOU ARE NOT AN ILLUSION, AND YOU ARE NOT DELUDED. YOUR SUBSTANCE DOES NOT CONSIST OF ILLUSION, AND YOUR ACTIVITY IS NOT AN ILLUSORY SUBSTANCE IN ACTION.

You Are Powerful, But What Does That Mean?

power-of-God

What Is The Power Of God?

God cannot behold (see) evil; therefore, it would be impossible for God to even attempt to fight it. With God all things are possible, Jesus declared; but this has nothing to do with battling the myriad appearances of evil.

Power as seen in the eyes of the Divine is simply the ability to do. It is the ability to do all things smoothly, efficiently, successfully, economically, creatively and perfectly. When the omnipotence that is God is rightly perceived, it is cognized as the supreme ability to do all things. It is just as easy for God to maintain the planets in their orbits as it is to bloom as the flowers in spring. The omnipotence of God knows no levels of difficulty.

You Are The Power To Do All Things Successfully

As a focal point of the Presence of God, you have no “personal” power over or against anyone or anything. God is not aware of anyone of anything other than His single Presence. Realizing yourself to be a focal point of power is the recognition of your ability to do all things smoothly, efficiently, successfully, economically, creatively and easily. The power is still God’s. It does not belong to the focal point because the focal point is nothing in and of itself. [excerpt from God Is All]

The Glory Is God’s

The glory for all accomplishment belongs to Omnipotence Itself. ALL IS GOD AND GOD’S

This Has To Be The Most Beneficial Exercise (Try It For 30 Days)

Infinite Self

The Whirling Dervish Was Spot-On

If someone asked you to point to yourself, would you point a finger at your Body? Most people would. But while you are pointing, be aware that your Self is not confined to the outline of your Body. Your Self, reader, is infinite – Infinity Itself. Your Self is unlimited. Your Self is unconfined. Your very Being is boundless.

One Sunday morning, I heard a speaker reveling in the realization of her Infinite Self. She sashayed up and down the aisles, spinning like a whirling dervish. Outside the floor-to-ceiling windows of the church, were flowering trees and rose blossoms. With her outstretched arms, fingers pointing to them as she spun, she blared, “Look at me! I am beautiful.”

Yes, it was over-the-top. Dropped jaws covered the sanctuary floor, yet she was spot on. She realized that her Self was not confined to her Body form.

Reader, you are not confined to your Body form. True, you include your Body in your I AM, but never are you confined to this wonderful form. If you were confined to your Body, God (the Infinite All) would be confined to that form. This is impossible!

You and God are one. As God is the Infinite All, you are the Infinite All. Now, let’s make this practical.

The I Am Exercise

Walk through your home, your garden, the mall, the workplace, etc. When your eyes rest on anything or anyone, instead of calling that thing or person by its human name, call it by its real name (nature) – I AM.

You may see a tall, majestic building. Call it I AM. You may see a mighty oak tree. Call it I AM. You may see a daffodil or a dandelion. Again, call it I AM. Your eyes may rest on something as insignificant as a paperclip. Call it I AM. You will see many dollar bills. Call them I AM. This will do wonders in clearing up any seeming separation between your Self and your Supply.

When you call these things I AM, you are really saying, “I (my Self) AM THE I AM (of this person or thing appearing before me) and THIS I AM (person or thing) IS THE I AM THAT IS my Self.” Here you have one Infinite, Indivisible I AM Presence and Power.

Do this exercise every day for thirty days. Put your heart into it. Get into the I AM of it, and your experience will be showered with so-called blessings. And with each blessing, you will know that it is only I AM experiencing its ALLNESS.
