Are You Seeing The Evidence? (M. Watts)

see

Sometimes one will say, “I see all of this Truth so clearly; and I accept it fully, but I do not see or experience the evidence of it.” In this very mis-statement we have the basis of our seeming failure to experience the full evidence of the Truth we know to be true. If we question, “Why isn’t this Truth evident?” we are actually claiming the absence of God’s evidence of Itself. We are also claiming the presence of some utterly false evidence. Beloved, this is a very insidious delusion. And it behooves all of us to refuse to be deceived by its fallacious claims.

God, Truth, being omnipresent, is ALL THAT IS PRESENT NOW. Thus, Truth – the Truth you know– is ALL THAT IS PRESENT NOW. That which is present is EVIDENCE. To disclaim the evidence of Truth would be do disclaim, or to deny, the Omnipresence that is God. Let’s never claim that God is All, and then disclaim the Allness that is God by a denial that the evidence of every Truth we know is present right here and right now.

Perhaps it may not appear that Truth’s evidence is present; but we cannot accept this illusion any more than we accept the miasmic picture of disease, trouble, or lack. We should gently but firmly insist that the evidence of God is God. And that this evidence is just as present as is God.

It is natural to expect Truth, and Its evidence, to be simultaneous. But, if we keep looking for the evidence; if we keep expecting the evidence to appear, we seem to be deceived in two ways. First, it appears that Truth’s evidence of Itself has been absent and may now be visibly present. Next, the illusion that Truth’s evidence is not present, now, but we expect it to become evidence. In either case, it is a denial of the constant fact that the Truth you know, and the evidence of this Truth, are inseparably ONE.

Hold steadfastly to the PRESENCE OF THE EVIDENCE OF TRUTH THAT IS PRESENT, AND YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT IT REALLY IS THE ONLY EVIDENCE, AND IT IS THE ONLY EVIDENCE THAT HAS BEEN PRESENT ALL THE WHILE.
