Racism – When Will It End?

project-racism-it-stops-with-me

What Won’t Work To End Racism And Why

The appearance is that racism and prejudice have been going on ever since men appeared to look different from one another. At least that’s how it appears. I’m no anthropologist, but I know we’re talking about a long time.

Here in America, the Civil Rights movement has helped Black people find some semblance of equality, yet Blacks still complain that things are off balance. “We’re still treated like the ugly stepchild,” they cry.

Neither the country nor the races involved matter: Racism is running rampant throughout the world. Or, so it seems. The question that lingers in the minds of the discriminated is “Will it ever end?” Grassroots movements are springing up everywhere trying to right the wrongs of racism and prejudice. Reluctant local and federal governments are forced to address the issue.

Again, I ask: Will racism ever end? To effectively answer this question, I have to start at the top (God’s Allness) and work my way down.

Starting from the top, RACISM NEVER BEGAN. God is one infinite, indivisible presence and power. This infinite presence is the substance – the reality – of every Identity in this universe. As one writer said, “God has never pulled off chunks of Itself and threw them around the world to war and fight against one another.” No, the oneness of Love is the ever-present reality.

Reader, right now you may be asking this one question, “Yes, Allen, I know it is an appearance, but will the appearance of racism ever end?”

Yes, it will! But first, let’s look at the craziest thing we do to end racism, and why it can never work. For centuries, people have tried to legislate racial equality. They have petitioned, begged and fought the governments to incorporate measures to ensure equality. But has this been effective? Ask anyone who feels they have been discriminated against because of their race. The answer is, “No!”

The Facts Of Life

FACT #1

EQUALITY CANNOT BE LEGISLATED. Why? Equality is a spiritual quality. It is one of the sons of Love. Spiritual qualities cannot be legislated. They can only be realized. Spiritual qualities can never be manipulated by the machinations of so-called human beings. EQUALITY CANNOT BE LEGISLATED. IT CAN ONLY BE REALIZED. Just once, read that sentence out loud.

FACT#2

Reader, equality is a matter of Consciousness. And RACIAL EQUALITY IS A MATTER OF ILLUMINATION.

Pretend for a moment that you see a white man discriminate against a black man because of his skin color. Recently, I read a strange story where a white woman on a TAM flight demanded that her seat be changed when she saw that her seatmate was a black man. (The story did have a happy ending).

Reimagine the story. How different would the story read if the white woman could not see the color of the black man’s skin, or even the color of her own skin? Would there be a story to report? No!

This is why I (and just a few other authors) stress Illumination. In the experience of Illumination, you don’t see skin color. You can’t. Are you surprised to read this? Don’t be. Reader, you know that skin color is a biological manifestation. Yet, you and everyone else are Spiritual manifestations. You are not a manifestation of biological laws. You are pure Spirit. Everyone is. Your Body is Spirit embodied, and in Illumination (seeing things as they are) you see Spiritual Bodies and not the biological counterfeit.

When you don’t see skin color, your actions cannot be based on it. It’s as simple as that.

Look out for Part 2 in early May.

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.

Lesson On Eternal Life From A Child

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes – A Request For Eternal Life

In a not-too-recent “Dear Amy” column, a five-year old asked her grandmother if she was going to get real old. The grandmother told the young girl, “We all get old … that’s why we have birthdays.” The little girl broke down crying saying to her grandmother, “I don’t want you to die. Please promise me you will have no more birthdays.”

This little girl wanted her granny to live forever. I believe we all have that wish for our loved ones (and ourselves). This little girl probably had no idea of the spiritual significance of her request. She probably didn’t realize that birthdays are handcuffed to deathdays.

Away With Birthdays And Deathdays

Get rid of birthdays and away go the deathdays. Get rid of birthdays and deathdays, and what are you left with? ETERNAL LIFE – real LIFE. You’re left with God. This is the secret to living forever – not as aging flesh, but as ageless Spirit.

Reader, you inherently know that God is Life, and you know that this Life is your Life right this very moment. Inherently, you know that this Life is birthless and deathless.

The Resurrection – A Lesson On Eternal Life

Easter, the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, is on the horizon. Christ Jesus’ resurrection was possible for one reason only: His realization of the birthless, therefore deathless, nature of the Life that comprised His Body. Read His words, “Before Abraham was, I AM.”

Reader, answer these two questions:

  • Do you think that your Body is made of a different Substance than the Body of Christ Jesus?
  • Is there more than one Substance?

Here are the back-of-the-book answers to these questions:

  • Your Body is constituted of the exact same Substance as the Body of Christ.
  • There is only one Substance: “For of him, to him, and through him are all things …”

Because Christ knew the eternal nature of His Body, He did not resist the cross. Life has no beginning and no ending. When the full realization of the eternal nature of your Body is realized, you will know that its Life cannot be crossed out by any seeming threat.

The Practical Application

If it appears that your Body, or the Body of a loved one, is in the terrifying grips of some life-threatening disease, don’t believe it. If it appears as though your Body is sliding toward the grave or the urn, put the brakes on NOW.

First, accept that Life – all Life (even that of your Body) – is birthless, deathless, timeless and ageless. This is easier when you remind yourself that Life and God are one and the same.

Next, soak your Body in a warm contemplation of its Eternal nature. Bring every aspect of your Body into this contemplation: hair, teeth, bones, organs, etc. After all, those are just material names for spiritual forms.

Take this soak every day for a week or two. Believe me, there’s nothing like a good soak in Eternal Life.

This Is What Happens When Your Body Is Healed

A reader asked this question:

“If my mortal appearing body appears to be sick, and through spiritual insight it is healed and appears as a well mortal body, isn’t the well mortal body just as unreal as the sick, mortal body? And doesn’t this make a well appearing mortal body as undesirable as a sick appearing mortal body?

Yes! and No! The mortal appearing body is nothing but the Immortal Body mis-perceived. (I really don’t like this word, but it helps in the explanation.) The sick, mortal body is the Whole, Immortal Body mis-perceived. This Immortal Body – your Body – consists of the Light that is the Presence of God.

Pay attention to this! When the body seems to be healed, what stays and what goes? Reader, it helps to answer this question aloud.

The disease appears to go, but the Body remains. The Body remains because the Body is real. It does exist. Your Body is Real! The disease, however, (perceived to be nothing) no longer seems to be.

What has happened here? When the mortal body appears to be healed, the Immortal Body (of pure Light and God Substance) shows forth a little more clearly. Had the awareness of the Immortal Body been totally complete, it would have shown forth as a Body of Pure Light – not merely a “healed” Body.

Never deny your Body. Never accept mortal lies about your Body.

What To Do About This Material Sense Of Body

Thanks to Darcio (a blog family member from Brazil), I was inspired to dust off a book I haven’t read in ages by Arthur Corey. Below is an excerpt from his Christian Science Class Instruction

The claim is made that, although man may be spiritual and perfect in his true being, he has here another body – one that is material and imperfect. The thing that extinguishes an erroneous sense of body is the realization that he hasn’t got another body.

Realizing that this which appears to be a material body is exempt from the restrictions of finite belief, perfect body is manifested in exact ratio. The only material body you could have would be the belief that the body is material. You cannot dispose of a material sense of body as though it were a thing , but you must transcend it; and this ascension appears as a constantly improved bodily estate.

You cannot die out of a material body, you must live out of it.

How To Take A Spiritual Bath

spirtual body

The Daily Ritual Is Not Enough

At some point in your day, you step into a hot tub of water with soap and sponge and wash away all the dried perspiration, dead skin cells, and other debris from your Body. Feeling refreshed, you step out of the tub, dry off, deodorize the body and get on with your day.

This daily ritual merely scrubs the surface of the Body. That’s not enough! Soap and sponges don’t reach the real “dirt” that fouls the Body: The dirt of dualism – those false ideas that we entertain about the body. Ideas like:

  • The Body is a biological organism
  • The Body is mortal and must die
  • The Body is changed by time
  • The Body is susceptible to disease

Is God All?

Reader, you say that God is all and that God is the only presence. You say that God is Spirit, Light, Perfection, and that God is birthless, deathless, timeless, ageless Life. All of this is true. Did you then reverse this position and say that the Body (yours) was born on a particular date? Did you contradict yourself by saying that your Body is governed by biological laws that cannot be ignored without your Body suffering terrible consequences?

Reader, you know that none of this filth is true about the God you say is all. And this leaves you at the crossroads: Either God is all and includes the Body, or God is not all.

If you choose wisely and truthfully that God is all, then all of the things you have said about your Body as a biological organism, conditioned by time, are LIES.

Deep Cleaning Your Body

Reader, I know your Body seems very “fleshy.” It appears like it is under the harsh dictatorship of mortality. Nevertheless, only what is true of God is true of your Body, and a deep cleansing of your Body will reveal a wonderfully healthy and vitally alive Body.

Just as you find it necessary, even mandatory, to wash away the day’s accumulation of debris from your Body, it is more important to wash away the dualistic ideas you may be entertaining about your Body.

Everyday, take a few minutes – just a few – to contemplate the spiritual nature of your Body. Start with what you know the nature of God to be. Then, simply include your Body as being the very same nature.

Let those ideas of materiality, mortality, age, disease, and time go down the drain.At some point during your contemplation you will know it is time for words to cease. Be silent, and listen for Consciousness (God) to “speak.” You will know when it’s time to get up. You’re clean. Go and enjoy the rest of your day.

Three Essential Steps (Top-Ten Books)


mw

For a long time, I thought that Three Essential Steps by Marie Watts was the only  must-read book. Order it from Mystics Of The World and you will see why. Below are excerpts from this book.

thumb

It isn’t enough to say that “God is the Universe,” unless you know the Nature of God, unless you know the Substance that is God, unless you know the Activity that is God–unless you know what God is, as the Substance, Form, and Activity that are all that comprise this Universe. To make these statements without really knowing their spiritual significance, is very much the same as saying, “God is All. God is my Supply, God is my Substance and my Life,” and then, “How am I going to pay the rent next month?” or “Well, I guess I’ll have to take an aspirin for this headache.” It really is pointless to make these statements of Truth, unless we go all the way and perceive the spiritual significance of the Power in the Truth we are stating.

thumb

You are the Substance that is the Universe. You are the Mind, the Intelligence, that is intelligently functioning as the Activity of this Universe…You are going to discover that you are more than one with the Universe, the stars, the planets, the galaxies. You really ARE JUST WHAT GOD IS, AND GOD IS THE UNIVERSE.

thumb

Indeed, there is Something right here where this matter body appears to be. But this Something is not solid, dense, heavy matter, blocked off in time and space. Right here and now, there is the Body that is entirely comprised of Life, Consciousness, Mind, Intelligence, Principle, Love, Beauty. Yes, the Body is comprised of all that God is and of nothing else.

thumb

The Body is alive because It is Life. The Body is conscious because It is Consciousness. The Body is supremely Intelligent because It is Intelligence. The Body is perfect because It is Perfection. The Body is eternally consciously alive because It is eternal conscious Life. The Body is eternally perfect because It is eternal conscious Perfection. The activity (functions) of the Body are eternally consciously perfect because all activity is Intelligence in uninterrupted action.

Body Month (The How-Tos)

body o light  allen white
The “Body Month” is a month you choose,  where your prayerful focus is on discovering, understanding, and contemplating the truth of your Body.

The Questions

During this “month,” you retreat to your God Consciousness and ask such questions as:

  • What is the Body?
  • Why do I have a Body?
  • Is the Body real, or is it an illusion?*
  • Was this Body born?
  • What is it about this Body that is most important for me to realize?

Above  are just suggested questions. Whether you use these questions or not, I strongly suggest that you consider the last question being one of the questions that you ask.

Listening For The Answer

Anyone can reason out the answer to these questions, but there is no power in a reasoned-out answer. You want a God-Revealed answer. After you’ve asked your question, the important thing is listening for the answer.

Contemplation

Self-Questioning and Listening are just two aspects of the “Body Month.” Contemplation is the other equally important aspect. Contemplation is calmly pondering the Body from a God Is All point-of-view. But more than that, contemplation is a calm, effortless consideration of the Body knowing that the God Is All point-of-view is the only Reality of the Body–your Body.

Now It’s Up To You

Fellow Absolutists, choose today which month will be your “Body Month.” Make your list of body-related questions. Once you actually begin your month, this is your short list of Daily Dos:

  1. Choose one or two questions. Take one question at a time and listen expectantly for the answer. Often, the answers are not instantaneous. Be patient. When you start getting antsy, get up and come back later. Above all, don’t reason out your answers.
  2. Contemplate your Body from a God Is All point-of-view.

The Body Month (a God Is All repost)

body of light allen white

If you have attended my lectures, you have heard about the Body Month. And you know that I encourage everyone to have at least one Body Month each year.

Because of (what appears to be) disease, swelling, sickness, aches, aging, deterioration, and downright fleshiness, the Body seems to be a spiritual logjam for most folk. The purpose of Body Month is to rightly perceive the Body through Conscious Revelation. For many, the results of Body Month will appear to be bodily healing, pain release, increase of vitality, and even a de-aging of the Body. But, reader, this is not the purpose of Body Month. The ultimate conclusion of Body Month is to consciously experience and actually see the Body as the Living Light that it is.

Here is a letter that I received from an annual Body Month practitioner:

Dear Allen,

What has been most helpful with the “body month” exercises is that I know I am not confined to nor restricted by the body, nor intimidated by it. Instead I am rejoicing in what Body really is. As there is no Identity but that of the Infinite, is it not correct to say that body is God, Perfection, visible? Or, God, Perfection, identified visibly? This is what feels good and right to me and has given me a sense of freedom from being concerned about body.And, I have need to be clear about this: where is “another” mind to suggest that something is wrong about body? No where!

Last summer I fell hard over rough, rocky terrain injuring the left leg, ankle and foot…the foot and ankle swelling and turning black. I vigorously resisted the temptation for x-rays, etc. I just know that I would not go that route, recalling that in one of your presentations you mentioned that an x-ray cannot show the perfection of Being (this is not an exact quote). I kept my focus on that which is absolutely true while hopping around using a mop handle for balance. It was not long before the foot and ankle were normal and I was wearing shoes and boots again.

For many years there was a quarter-size lump on one hip. I can honestly say it never troubled me and although it was there it gave me no concern…never looked at it, never thought about it. However, a few months ago, I realized it was gone; just when, I have no idea…just gone. At the same time, I saw that a small growth near the nose had disappeared.

This June, repeatedly came the phrase “…all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”–the fullness, the Allness of God, Perfection, bodily! This really resonated most of the month. If I am really convinced that God is All, that Allness embraces all of me: morally, spiritually, physically, giving me a sense of the sweetness and gentleness of the Absolute.

Sincerely
