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.

Spiritual Leaders And Their Lies

This is an excerpt from my second book Sounds Of The Trumpet

Life Is A Playground Not A Learning School

Perhaps you have heard the theory, widely accepted by many metaphysicians, that misfortunes haunt our lives to teach us a valuable lesson, and once that lesson is learned the misfortune departs. False notions such as this one have encouraged “spiritual leaders” to perpetuate the great lie that earth is a huge classroom with multitudes of brutal lessons preparing us for ease of living somewhere else – at another time.

There’s Something Better Than Overcoming Problems

There is a well-known religion that takes great pride in how their members and believers use Truth, solely and very effectively to overcome every type of physical malady known to man. This is fine, but there is a higher view. From the peaks of Mt. Absolute, you can see that the highest testimony to the Omnipresence and Omnipotence of God is not in overcoming problems, but in having no problems to overcome, to literally go from one glorious experience to the next glorious experience in this infinite universe of illimitable glories. Isn’t this a better testimony to the fact that GOD IS ALL?

Your Assurance Of Uninterrupted Glorious Living Is The Allness Of God

Is it possible to actually live from glory to glory? This questions can be answered simply: IF IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO LIVE FROM GLORY TO GLORY, THEN GOD IS NOT ALL. IF IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO LIVE FROM GLORY TO GLORY, THEN GOD IS NOT THE ONLY PRESENCE AND THE ONLY POWER. But you and I know with unshakable certainty that GOD IS ALL.

So This Is Why I Wasn’t Healed

God Is All allen white

This excerpt is by Alfred Aiken from The Unchallenged Self

I Declared Truth Until I Was Blue In The Face — Where’s My Healing?

Recently, one steeped in metaphysics asked for a clearer explanation of God. As the ALLNESS of God was pointed out, the seeker said, ”Oh yes, I know, but that is too absolute for me. Talk so I can understand you. The doctors at my place of business tell me I have tuberculosis and I am unable to work. I can’t pay my bills. I’ve declared Truth till I’m blue in the face but it doesn’t seem to do a bit of good. Why doesn’t God heal me? I’ve asked Him in all sincerity. I know He’s all powerful – that He’s Love Itself, so why doesn’t He heal me?”

I tried to point out the ONENESS of God, but with each statement of Truth, my visitor countered with a metaphysical quotation, assuring me this was the very same Truth he had been declaring for months on end. To break through this glib parroting, he was then asked for an original definition of what Truth is – not words or pretty, quotable sentences, but what is the Truth Itself; not the truth about Truth, but Truth’s very essence – what the I of this I-PRESENT is. This question caught his attention and he was still – he listened to the sole Self for a change, rather than to the chatter of no-Self, not-Self, not-One, not-I!

Fight Evil Appearances And They Will Appear To Get Worse

Until now, all his efforts had been expended against evil, against a condition. However, as always in the field of theology, the more evil or sin is fought, the larger it becomes – the further from the Allness of God the theologian travels. Evil is not to be wiped out, dealt with, handled, cast aside or overcome.

Why?

Because God is ALL, and this leaves nothing beside. Sickness, like aught else evil, is not something to be met, destroyed or healed, because PRESENT PERFECTION leaves no evil – leaves none sick, ailing or in distress. Surely no one would go about trying to heal God!

God’s Allness Is All That’s Going On

My visitor was asked is he had ever felt GOD was in need of prayer – had he ever “worked” for GOD, tried to set GOD free of disease, deadly germs, infection? The answer was an immediate NO! Did time ever affect GOD? NO! Is God all, right NOW? Yes! Is there more than ALL? There was a pause, then a slow acknowledgment that there is ONLY GOD. Who then is ill? NO ONE, FOR GOD IS ALL!

Suddenly, he saw this. “This is Truth!” he declared. It was clear to him that until this moment he had merely been attempting to know about Truth – about himself, about disease, but he had now know TRUTH ITSELF. Truth revealed Truth to be TRUE RIGHT NOW, WHOLE, AWARE OF BEING THE I THAT I AM – THIS I RIGHT HERE.

Some three days late, because of employment insurance regulations, the young man had to report to the doctors for another X-ray. When the X-ray was taken it showed but a slight congestion which the doctors said was possibly fatigue. When they compared the new pictures with the old ones, they were at a complete loss to explain how the old set showed such an advanced stage of the disease and the new ones did not. To be doubly sure, however, they later called for another set which showed no trace of discord, and within a matter of days the yound man was back at work.

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.

Our Readers Write

handwritten letter

Below are two recent communications I have received. I thought they were worth sharing with you. Please feel free to share a testimony that with our readers.

Letter of Thanks

Loved your recent post Allen….as always. Just want to say that…though I experience “falls” much more often then you do…I have had very similar experiences in the way you describe here.( I’m into the term – feeling of Illumined Awareness rather then Mind). Its sooooo liberating. So just want to say thank you for your sharing because hearing you speak it somehow adds an even greater Flavor and Quickening of Understanding and Trust to it for me. Thanks as always. Love to you Friend.
D.L.

A Testimony

Dear Allen,
Gratefully I am feeling well. Take care of my own affairs. I have a reliable Jeep Liberty and go to town however many times necessary. I am 5 miles from Payson. My home is in the forest of Ponderosa Pines —secluded and private — but not isolated.

First, every morning long moments of stillness, peace, and “listening.” I don’t begin the day without this quiet time.

I will share with you an experience last week. I walked directly into a low-hanging tree branch, and a short, sharp end of the branch went into my eye. Immediately I went into the house; sat down and assured myself “nothing is wrong with me.” That was the end of the discomfort, and the balance of the day I drove to town, did the errands, came home. Everything was good.

I do appreciate the fine posts you send; they certainly help me to maintain. I still enjoy the cassette tape about living a life of ease … it’s a masterpiece.
M.E.

This Is The Best Way To Live (Don’t You Agree?)

To win the victory over sickness and suffering is not the best proof of God’s Allness. To never be sick in the first place is better proof.

To triumph over financial lack is not the best proof of God’s Infinite Substance. To never experience a moment of lack is better proof.

To finally succeed after years of failure is not the best proof of God’s Completeness (Success). To never fail is better proof.

You Don’t Need Jams To Prove God’s Allness

Too many people seem to think that getting out of a thorny jam is a trophy-worthy demonstration of God’s Allness. I met a man who appears to court trouble just to prove his understanding of God’s Allness.

If you came out of a jam unscathed, that’s wonderful. But there is a better way – a higher way! Reader, lift your vision high – above trials, tribulations and troubles – to where God Is All. From this vantage point, can you see that the best demonstration of God’s Allness is to never be in trouble?

Living From Glory To Glory

Rather than triumphing over troubles, expect a life of moving from glory to glory. That’s the best proof of God’s Allness. After all, God is the only presence, power, activity, and evidence. And you already know that there is no trouble in God, and no God in trouble.

Have A Talk With Yourself

Don’t be afraid to tell yourself the Truth. In a quiet moment, speak courageously and confidently to yourself. Tell yourself, “I know that God Is All, and that All Is God. I don’t need to be miraculously pulled out of trouble’s steely clutches to know that God Is All. God does not need to be proved. Because God Is All, it is my right to live a trouble-free life.”

No Guilt Allowed

If you seem to be in trouble, don’t whip yourself with cords of guilt. The purpose of this writing is not to induce guilt, but rather

  • to consider the fact that you do not need trouble(s) in order to “prove” your understanding of God.
  • to consider that because God Is All, it is possible to live a trouble-free life.
  • to lift your vision higher than trouble-based praying.

When You Feel Like Giving Up, Don’t!

A Revelation So Powerful

Most often – in 95% of cases – Revelation and Manifestation are like conjoined twins in that one never shows up without the other. And there are occasions when Truth reveals itself so powerfully that it seems to shake the rafters of your Consciousness. That should be the end of the seeming problem – so you would think.

Stand Firm and Don’t Give Up

Like a tick on a dog’s belly, instead of disappearing, the problem clings more stubbornly. What do you do? You stand firm! This is not the time to get weak in the knees and collapse. Hold fast to your Revelation.Take every opportunity you can to sit and contemplate the Truth that’s been revealed.

Manifestation Is

I’ve been asked many times if I have ever experienced Revelation without its twin (Manifestation). Of course I have. The first time a revelation came forth without manifestation, I think I went into a coma. When I came to I thought, “This can’t be.” Now, on the rare occasion when it happens, I almost rejoice because I know that the manifestation IS (despite its seeming absence), and all I have to do is stay with the ISNESS of the Revelation. Reader, that is all you have to do. STAY WITH THE ISNESS OF THE REVELATION.

“And let us not be weary in well doing, for in due
season we shall reap if we faint not.”
(Gal. 6:9)

Are You Waiting For A Miracle?

Taking Out The Trash

There are some words that no longer fit in our vocabulary. They need to be uprooted and permanently eliminated immediately. At the top of the list is the word tomorrow. And while you are uprooting it, don’t miss its siblings: soon, later, become, progress and improve. They usually hover very close to tomorrow.

Some Time(ly) Questions

Reader, I have a few questions to ask you. Do you think that with each prayer – each contemplation – things will get better? Do you believe that with longer or more frequent meditations you will become more enlightened? Do you think that in time your healing or long-awaited miracle will finally happen?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have just a few more questions to ask you. What about today? Isn’t God All today — now? Will God become more “All” tomorrow because you contemplated? Isn’t what you call “spiritual progress” actually a flat-out denial of the HERE and NOW of God and all that God is?

Now God Is All

Please allow me just two more questions. Do you think your Consciousness (which actually is God being Conscious) can become more enlightened than it is right now? Isn’t the belief in future enlightenment denying God to be the ONLY MIND and CONSCIOUSNESS?

All is God and God is All – now. There’s no becoming and progressing to this Allness. Reader, you are this Allness in living, loving action. Contemplate this and let Consciousness reveal even more of that which already IS.

What Are You Saying That You Are Seeing?

I could hear that his heart was in every word when he said, “Allen, I’m sick and tired of seeing sickness and death. I just don’t know what to do.” If you were listening in, you would have rolled on the floor laughing at my feeble attempts to answer him. I was having a hard time because I was trying to be sensitive to his seeming plight, and at the same time share a word of Truth. No one says what I was trying to say better than Lillian DeWaters in her book “The Time Is At Hand.” Below is the excerpt – a long excerpt.

When, apparently, one sees injury and hears discord are his senses reporting correctly and truly or are they reporting otherwise? Does the reader feel capable of answering this question readily, accurately and understandingly?

Some say, “My physical senses are reporting inharmony but my spiritual senses are recognizing Reality.” Now those who speak of the Senses as being physical are in need of deeper insight and a scientific mode of expression.

Another may answer, “My senses are spiritual, but they are reporting untruly, for they are seeing an accident.” Here one is deciding inconsistently, for how could perfect Senses report imperfectly?

The facts are these: The spiritual Senses (and there are no others), are always reporting correctly and truly, for Perfection is forever manifesting and registering Perfection.

Someone asks, “When I see an accident are not my eyes telling me so? Are they not witnessing the injury?” No. Your Eyes, being spiritual and perfect, are seeing no accident whatsoever.

If while walking in the twilight, one mistakes a post for a tramp are his eyes reporting the post or the tramp? Pictured on the eyes is the post, for this is what is present. The eyes are not reporting a tramp, for the simple reason that none is present.

Likewise, when one reports that the coiled shape on the floor is a serpent his eyes are not deceived. His eyes are seeing the rope but his mind is falsifying the evidence.

Turn again to the original question which was this: When, apparently, one sees injury and hears discord are his senses reporting correctly and truly or are they reporting otherwise? Now clearly discern its correct answer which is: “My Senses are reporting truly and correctly, and they are seeing and hearing the Glory and Harmony of the perfect Universe.

It is erring mind, or human sense, (not Senses), which weaves the illusion, just as when the picture of a tramp appears instead of the actual outline of the post. Since it(human sense) believes in accidents, in injuries and disasters the mind declares that it seems them, but it is practicing a deception upon itself, and is thus a victim to its own illusions.

Did You Contemplate Your Perfection Today?

For the month of July I am taking a break. Instead of writing new articles, I am posting some more of my favorite passages from other Absolute authors. This week’s post is from Doris Henty’s Addresses and Other Writings..

The command “Be ye therefore perfect” is already fulfilled effortlessly. Perfection is inevitable. Restriction, friction, erroneous suggestion, earth-bound sense, mortal belief — the belief that there is a belief —are unknown to the kingdom of holiness within.

Discord never entered your Mind. Your peaceful well-being remains forever undisturbed. No suggestion of evil was ever heard, seen or felt in this consciousness of holiness which you are. Yours is the “boundless thought that walks enraptured,” free from impediment, obstruction or limitation, enjoying the natural perfection of its own being.

Let prayer be the joyous recognition and acknowledgment of that which already exists, the glories of Life: the joyous, restful experience of health and harmony already and permanently established as one’s own being. The Sabbath means that the whole of infinity is “the secret place of the most High.” Think of the peace and security of such being, your being, unassailed because there is nothing but Itself.
