Truth Is Working Right Now

luke-137_orig

If a glass is filled with water – really filled – is there room for ice? Is there space in that glass for even one drop of another substance? The earth and heaven are filled to capacity with the presence of God. Where is there room for man, woman, child, bird or bee? If any form is in the Kingdom, it is God formed. These forms can be mistakenly identified as anything, but that does not alter the fact that the form is God. GOD IS ALL. ALL IS GOD. The understanding of this is the sighting and experience of the Kingdom of God.

Why doesn’t Truth work? Have you ever asked your Self that question? Surely in periods of seeming dismay and despair you have asked yourself this question, but the fictitious self that you asked can no more give you the answer than it can “make Truth work.” Do you fully understand – and you must, given who you are – that any attempt to make Truth work is a vain attempt to glorify a false sense of human identity? Truth cannot and will not glorify this identity, for it knows nothing of it. All attempts by this identity to get Truth to do something for it will meet with failure and frustration.

Until God is given all honor, all glory, all majesty, and all identity, it will seem as though Truth is not working. It will seem as though time is necessary for Truth to work. What the one who attempts to “use” Truth fails to notice is that the time it takes for it to “work” is endless. The only thing working at all in these instances is the faith of the one who is hoping that Truth will someday work. God is Truth. Do you believe that God is having a problem with God? To God, Truth (God) is working and has always worked. No, this is not work to change anything. This is purely the joyous activity of Being. (from God Is All)

Who Will Win The 2017 Abby Award?

award

The Creation Of The Abby Award

The Master of Ceremonies opens the envelope and announces “And the ‘Abby’ goes to ….”

Let’s back up to the beginning. In my mind I picture a new awards show. In America you have the Oscar, Grammy and Emmy awards. In France, you have the Prix Goncourt. In the United Kingdom there is the BAFTA awards. All of these represent excellence in a certain field. But what about the field of Absolute writers and publishers. Deserving folk in this genre should be recognized too. So, I’ve created (in my wildest imagination) the Abby Award for writers and publishers of the Absolute.

[Back to the show]

As I write, the judges are tallying up the votes. I’m on edge waiting for the unknown man in the tuxedo to hand the envelope to the Master of Ceremonies. He walks onto the stage and hands the envelope to the elegantly gowned MC. After opening the envelope, she pauses and then announces, “And the Abby Award goes to Mystics of the World (M.O.W.).” Smiles light up the room.

Mystics Of The World Is Our Fairy Godmother

For over a decade, Mystics of the World has been the fairy godmother for authors of the Absolute. Authors like Jane Woodward found a publishing angel in Mystics of the World (Denice Jutras). Her books are excellent but too small to be considered by traditional publishers.

My story is simple. God Is All enjoyed excellent distribution by DeVorss and sold very well in the United States and Canada. Once Mystics of the World put the book in their catalog, God Is All started circulating in India, New Zealand, Africa, United Kingdom and Brazil.

If you want a book by Lillian DeWaters, Vivian May Williams, Marie Watts, or Paul Gorman, where do you turn? Mystics of the World.

The Marie Watts Project

Recently M.O.W. embarked on an ambitious project to reprint all of the books of Marie Watts so that they are all traditionally sized and bound. That project is almost complete, and many of Watts’ books are now available through Mystics of the World and Amazon.com. Visit their site to see what winks at you. Here are my recommendations of Marie Watts’ books:

  • Three Essential Steps
  • Your Eternal Identity
  • Questions And Answers From The Word
  • Success Is Normal

Congratulations Mystics of the World on your Abby award.

Haven’t Experienced Revelation? Here’s Help

blog

Sitting In The Silence, But No Revelations

“Allen, I’ve sat in silence for years, but nothing happens. No revelations, no illumination – nothing. I’ve read your books and have practically memorized Joel Goldsmith’s, but I can’t figure out what in the h**l I’m doing wrong.”

Reader, is this where you seem to be? I’ve been there. It’s frustrating. It’s disheartening. After a long while of “nothing’s happening,” you just go through the motion of silent praying, but you don’t expect anything to come of it. It’s maddening!

Don’t Be Discouraged. There Is Only One Mind.

Because I have been there, I’m offering the following suggestion to newbies in order to bypass this phase, and to the disheartened, to finally find fulfillment.

But first, reader, take a look at the premise that undergirds the suggestion.

God is All. There is only One Mind, and that Mind is the full Revelation of Truth. This is “your” Mind right now.

The mind that has never experienced Revelation – the unillumined mind is no mind at all. It is non-existent.

In short, at this very moment, you are a fully Illumined Identity. You, reader, are Revelation Itself.

Now that you have read, understood and accepted the premise, let’s move on to the suggestion

Try This For Thirty Days

Before you start your silent prayer, acknowledge that you are already fully Illumined. Acknowledge right now that you are the full Revelation of Truth. STOP reaching out for Truth. Instead, settle into “your” fully illumined Mind.

Try this for 30 days, but remember, no reaching out. Settle in.

Is Death An Illusion?

Dying-to-Know-title-screen-shot

What is the answer to 3 + 3?
What happens after (so-called) death?
There’s a right answer to both questions.

Ask ten adults the first question and they will all give you the same answer: SIX! That is the right answer.

Let’s move to the second question. Ask ten people what happens after death and you may get ten different answers. And yet, like 3 + 3, there is one right answer.

How Would You Answer These Questions?

Reader, I have a few more questions for you:

  • Do we have to die?
  • Why do we have to die?
  • Is death real?
  • What happens when someone appears to die?

Did you answer “I don’t know” to one or more of these questions? Did you answer any question with a definite, unequivocal answer? How do you know your answer is correct?

Again, there is one right answer to each of the four (4) “death” questions. Aren’t you curious about them? I believe that you are. I believe that every time a loved one appears to die, there is a flicker of curiosity about the answer to these questions. That’s why I wrote this post.

How To Know That You Know

I urge you to satisfy your curiosity. Get the answers to these question. The subject of death does not have to continue to be a mystery for you. You can know everything you want to know about this fallacious appearance. Here’s how: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of Google (Oops! I meant God.)” James 1:5.

Go directly to God Consciousness and ask the above questions. Of course you will have to listen for the answers. You may have to repeatedly ask and listen, but know this – Consciousness will reveal the answer. Reader, you will KNOW, and know that you KNOW just as surely as you know 3 + 3 = 6. And, you will never be mesmerized or paralyzed by this appearance again.

Embrace Effortless Awareness

BeStill-700.png

Flashing Of The Neon Lights

For almost two weeks, like neon lights in the black sky, the words CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS kept flashing in my awareness. No matter where I was or what I was doing, the words blazed in my mind: CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS.

Here’s the back story. One night while silently praying, the universal, impersonal Consciousness revealed this idea: YOU ARE CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS OF GOD BEING THE ONLY PRESENCE, POWER AND EVIDENCE WHETHER YOU ARE CONTEMPLATING OR NOT.

Even When You Think You’re Not, You Are

Reader, please read the revelation again. This is your Truth, and it is your Truth now. Even when you seem to be caught up in the busy-ness of daily living – not even thinking about Truth – you are CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS OF GOD BEING THE ONLY PRESENCE, POWER AND EVIDENCE.

Knowing that you are CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS, isn’t it a relief from that inner struggle to attain Illumined Awareness? Let’s further explore this idea.

Consciousness Is Impersonal

Consciousness is not a personal possession. Illumined Consciousness is a universal presence and a universal Fact of Being. It is God. You, reader, are Illumined Consciousness Identified. All that you are (including your Body) is Illumined Consciousness CONSTANTLY CONSCIOUS of being all that God is as you.

It’s Marvelous

Now that you have considered and embraced this Fact, your days and nights will never be the same. At once, you notice that your days and nights are filled to overflowing with indescribable joy. The effort to think True thoughts and to hold onto Truth is now replaced by experiences of Truth spontaneously surging as your awareness. Effortlessly, you are “praying without ceasing,” and serenely, you are “dwelling in the secret place of the Most High. It’s marvelous.

The Joys Of Contemplation

bt-contemplation

Someone recently asked me, “Allen, how do you contemplate?” Ultimately, reader, you will have to find your own way, but below are the three ways I contemplate.

1

My favorite way is to sit in silence for a few moments. Slowly, I repeat the words “I Am.” After two or three repetitions, Consciousness usually stops on the word “I” revealing that “I” is boundless, universal, and impersonal.

Effortlessly and without planning, I find myself contemplating a spiritual Truth. At this point, rather than a sense of doing something, my experience is one of being the contemplation.

This way is easy, relaxed, and totally effortless.

2

Since 1998, I’ve kept a “Spiritual Journal.” I have five of them, and scribbled on their pages are many of the revelations I “heard” in silent prayer.

Sometimes, I pick up one of the journals and flip to a page. Then, I contemplate the revelations on that page. The joy of this approach is that I am contemplating Truths that have already been revealed.

Contemplating Truths that have already been revealed always opens the door to fuller knowledge and experience of that Truth. It is wonderful.

3

Another way I contemplate involves the Bible or some other spiritual literature. Reader, has this happened to you? While reading a book of Truth, does a word or sentence pop out as if it is demanding more of your attention?

When this happens, I don’t keep reading. I stop and contemplate that word or sentence. Sometimes I ask Consciousness, “What is it I am to perceive here?” I may have to do this more than once, but when the answer is revealed, I feel like I’m going to explode with joy.

Reader, here is what I don’t do. I never contemplate with the idea that this contemplation is going to fix something. Furthermore, I realize that Truth is always true whether I am contemplating it or not.

Many people have questions about the why’s of contemplation and prayer. Those questions are answered in The Prayer Project.  Just a click away.

Do You Dread The Hospital Visit?

“Allen, those uncomfortable pockets of silence are darn near torturous. I sit there watching them [the patients] struggle to put on a brave face while in obvious agony. All the while, Allen, my mind scrambles to find the right words to say. Finally, I just stand up and say ‘I’ve got to hurry now before rush-hour traffic.’” These are the words of a man describing why he hates the hospital visit.

Do you dread the hospital visit? Should you ever have to make a hospital visit, this brief post will make that visit a joy-filled experience. Reader, be conscious of this: You are the Light of the world. Make that visit in the power of your God-Being. In any hospital visit, there is only one thing to remember: YOU ARE NOT THERE TO SAY ANYTHING. YOU ARE THERE TO KNOW THAT GOD IS ALL.

Stand On The Rock Of Truth

Standing on and as this solid Rock of Truth is all that is required. From this high point, the right words will flow from your mouth as effortlessly as the river flows downstream. And maybe no words will come at all, but it does not matter.

Sitting in that hospital room, mindful of God’s Allness (and nothing else), don’t be surprised if later you get a call saying, “What did you say to Aunt Nancy? She appreciated your visit so much. She said you really inspired and lifted her spirits.”

While hearing these words, you may think to yourself, “What did I say?” But it wasn’t what you said. IT WAS WHAT YOU WERE KNOWING AND BEING that inspired, uplifted and revealed God’s Presence.

When you stand on and AS the solid Rock of Truth (God is All), every word that you say is inspiring and empowering – even a joke. Yes, even your laughter rings with Truth, and the pockets of silence echo God’s Allness.

Stop worrying about what to say and just be concerned about what you know.

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.
