Remember This

remember

During a challenging time, I was all out of prayers and words. Desperately, I cried out, “Consciousness, you’ve got to give me something – anything – to hold on to.”

I waited in silence, but nothing happened. When I was just about to open my eyes, the words came, and they were enough.

Never forget, You Are the One Presence.
Never forget, You Are the One Power.
Never forget, You Are Eternal Life.
Never forget, You Are the Light that is the World.
Never forget, What I AM, You Are.

As there is no personal Truth, I leave you with the same words – slightly altered.

Always remember, You are the One Presence.
Always remember, You are the One Power.
Always remember, You are Eternal Life.
Always remember, You are the Light that is the World.
Always remember, What I AM, You Are.

Body 101 (Part 2)

1-corinthians-3-16-your-body-is-a-temple-of-god-pink-1

You’ve read the last post, and by now you have your list of questions written down. You will be referring to these questions many times. Having them on paper eliminates the anxiety of trying to remember them during a “listening session.”

If listening is the greater part of learning, then hearing is the prelude to knowing. This blog post is about being God-taught by hearing the voice of “your” God Consciousness. It is not enough to listen. Listening must progress to hearing and conclude with knowing. It is the knowledge of Truth that frees you from the false ideas about your Body.

How To Begin A Listening Session

Unless you have your questions memorized, begin by reading over your list. Approach each session with an open mind. The answers most likely will surprise you. As expected, none of your answers will support ideas based on a material concept of your Body.

Next, settle in and ask the question that is uppermost in your Mind. If closing your eyes works for you, then close them. Now, you simply listen intently for the answer. Give it a minute or so and then proceed to the next question. You can, if you decide, go through your entire list of questions in one session. I never do.

I’m always asked how long a listening session should be. I can’t tell you that. Whatever feels right to you. Sometimes it may span two or three minutes. Other times, it may be much longer. The essential thing is that your listening sessions be approached with joy and enthusiasm.

Where Are The Answers Coming From?

Sometimes you will have a listening session where nothing is heard. It happens all the time for me. Nevertheless, you want to cut out any unnecessary delays to hearing the answers to your questions. This means you must understand that answers are not coming “to” you from a God outside of you. We are through with that kind of dualism.

All of the answers are already within your Consciousness. They are bubbling up within you. To tell the Truth, you are the answer to every question. This fact, understood, eliminates the delay caused by time and distance.

Don’t Despair

Ideally, every listening session will result in your hearing the answer to one or more of your questions. If you’re anything like me, you start your sessions with the hope that the answers come quickly – without delay.

That can happen, but to be honest, for me, it doesn’t often happen like that. Sometimes you have to ask repeatedly, for many days. Don’t despair. The answer is worth the wait. An answer heard gives you both a new view and a new experience of your Body.

Whatever you do, don’t drop the ball. Don’t get so frustrated that you completely abandon your listening sessions. One day, you’ll look back and say, “Allen, this is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

How To Handle “The Mosquitos”

The other day my brother called and asked me how to handle those pesky little thoughts that buzz about in your mind. It seems as soon as you decide to listen, thoughts about the new lawnmower; the grocery list; the booster shots; etc., come up.

You try fighting them, but like mosquitos, they keep coming back. Give those thoughts exactly what they want – attention. Rather than fighting them, tell them, “I promise I’ll give you a few minutes when I’m done.” Usually, something like this keeps them at bay.

One thing I know for sure is that if you are serious about hearing, you will find an effective way to deal with these thoughts.

The Answer

When an answer is revealed, you will naturally go into contemplation mode. That’s a good thing. You will probably contemplate the answer for many days. And it is possible that your listening sessions become contemplation sessions. In this case, that’s a good thing. In a short while, you will get back to your list.

In your journal, you have your list of questions. That journal should also contain the answer to your questions. You will refer to these answers many times – mainly for inspiration.

Again, I encourage you to enjoy the entire process.

BODY 101 (Part 1)

1 Corinthians 3-16 Your Body is a Temple of God pink

 

The school season has officially begun and college students are shuffling through the hallowed halls of academia with an eagerness to learn. Most likely, your days of all-night cramming for a morning exam are behind you. But not so fast. The reason for this post is to encourage you to go back to school. I’m suggesting that you enroll in, probably, the most practical and effective class you’ve ever taken: BODY 101.

Should you decide to enroll in this class, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to immunize your Body so that it never sickens.
  • How to restore the proper functions of every part of your Body.
  • How to undo age-related appearances and diseases.
  • How to see and hear better.
  • How to learn faster.

Are you interested? There are no sign-up and log-in forms. There are no passwords, no course agenda, and no downloads. There is no fee for this course, and Allen White is not teaching this class.

BODY 101 will be taught by the most effective and efficient professor the world has ever known. Before I tell you more about the professor, I’m going to tell you about the world’s most famous student ever to graduate from BODY 101.

  • He raised a man from the dead after three days in the tomb.
  • He gave sight to blind eyes.
  • He instantly healed several men of a deadly contagious disease.
  • He immediately lowered the fever and healed a woman lying in her sickbed.

You know that I’m referring to the summa cum laude graduate of the Body School – Christ Jesus. He was the most diligent student of BODY 101. He listened. He learned. He revealed (some call it healing).

There are so many conflicting theories about the Body. The most divergent are the biological and spiritual. But even authors in the spiritual camp present conflicting ideas. Some say the Body is not real. Others say that the Body is God embodied.

When caring for the Body, some authors suggest that you still use common sense and follow the learned advice of physicians and nutritionists. Others say, “That’s nonsense.”

What’s true? BODY 101 reveals the answer to these and many of your other questions. As there is only one truth concerning 2 plus 2, there is only one Truth concerning the answer to these questions. This one Truth should motivate you to enroll in BODY 101 as soon as possible.

It’s not diet or exercise that will free you from false ideas about the Body. There’s only one way: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).

To enroll in BODY 101, you’ll need the following:

  • willingness to relearn the Body/open mind
  • journal
  • list of questions

Willingness To Relearn/Open Mind

To get started in this eye-opening curriculum, you’ll need a willingness to relearn the nature of your Body. Your highly esteemed professor, the Holy Comforter (God Consciousness), will direct the course content. Your questions provide the syllabus.

Relearning your Body implies a willingness to let go of all previous theories you’ve learned about your Body. To illustrate what is meant by letting go, I’m going to digress a moment. Do you know how to trap a live monkey?

“Bore a small hole into a whole young coconut (buko), about an inch in diameter, or just enough for the monkey to insert its hands with outstretched fingers into the nut. Secure the nut with wire or rope among the trees where monkeys abound. Or any place they frequent looking for food.

“A monkey comes, looks around, inserts its hand into the hole. Once its hand reaches the inside of the nut, it scoops the soft flesh and holds it into a tight fist. By so doing its hand gets stuck inside the nut. The monkey will not release its hold and will try to carry off the nut. Get the picture of a small fellow getting his fingers stuck into an oversize bowling ball?

“The poor monkey tumbles, shrieks, and does everything possible to take the nut off, panicking in the process. But it can’t think of releasing his fist. It soon gets exhausted.”

To get out of the trap, the monkey simply needs to let go of the soft flesh. That’s all. No one wants to be trapped in a fleshy concept of the Body – an aging, decaying, body prone to disease and death. To get free one simply needs to be willing to let go of material-based theories concerning the Body.

Journal

A journal is suggested because you do need to record your list of questions, and ideally, your
God-revealed answers.

List of Questions

Consider your Body as it seems right now. Consider your current perceptions of Body in general. What questions do you have? Take your time and make a list.

Your list can include any questions that you would like answered, however, there is one question that should top your list: Does the Body even exist?

I’ve got to go now. Class is about to start. By the next post, you will most likely have your list of questions, and I will conclude this article on BODY 101.

God Is All — What Does That Mean?

What_Does_That_Mean

The Million Dollar Question

“What does that mean – God is All? I say the words, but I honestly have no clue what they mean.” These are the words of a not-too-recent caller.

“I feel like I’m just saying words that I’ve read,” she continued. This caller was honest. It’s good to be honest. Many say all the right words but haven’t faced the fact that they are merely parroting words they’ve read and heard. Once this fact is faced, wonderful things happen.

First, you throw out all your stuff– your preconceived notions of those “right” words and phrases. In that seeming vacuum of unknowing, Light, Wisdom, Intelligence, and Knowledge flood your Consciousness.

Nothing Satisfies Like Truth Revealed In Consciousness

The Light has always been there. So has the Wisdom and Knowledge, but they were buried under a layer of learned words. The caller asked the question: What does God is All mean? Well, there’s a simple answer to that question: ONLY GOD IS. Dig deeper and you hit up against her real question: WHAT IS GOD?

Have you ever asked yourself that question? Did you answer it? Where did your answer come from? A book? A preacher? The Bible? Youtube? You deserve better. Nothing will satisfy like the answer revealed in “your” Consciousness.

Reader, you can know what God is. “You shall know the (this) truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The congregation of the Unity Church in Silver Spring is filled with PhDs. Repeatedly I’ve said to them that if people sought the answer to the God question with the same zeal, discipline, and dedication it took to get those degrees, they would be the happiest and most prosperous people in the world.

What Are You Going To Do About It?

Although you can know what God is, you may never be able to articulate it. As soon as you try, you’ll know that you’ve put a limit on the Unlimited. If you feel as this caller does, that you don’t know what God is, and you don’t know what God is All means, what are you going to do about it? Languish in ignorance?

No! That won’t satisfy. What will satisfy is discovering the answer via silent prayer and receptive listening.

There Is No Believer In Evil

corey

I’ve been asked why I never quote anything from Science and Health — the Christian Science textbook. It is undoubtedly a great book. Today I’ve chosen to quote from Arthur Corey, one of the brightest lights in the Christian Science movement.

Problems Are Truth Misread

When you reach the point where you know that all the errors appearing must be truths misread, you begin to realize the futility of handling appearances alone. Stopping with effects, you would fail to handle the underlying cause, so that it is like fighting the hydra-headed monster who shows another head or two for every one you cut off. To recognize that Truth perverted becomes the creator of error, is to imply a perverter.

A wrong sense of something indicates that there must be a wrong see-er, does it not? You may have to first recognize the devil’s lies as lies, in order to see who’s talking, but your work is not done until you have disposed of the devil himself. The fundamental claim is that there is someone or something to misapprehend or misrepresent divinity, and this claim is uncovered by the analysis and exposure of the lie as such.

If God Is All, There Is No Believer In Troubles

Again, to say that an error is only a belief is to admit a believer; and until you dispose of the believer, you are going to have either this troublesome belief or some other before you. You can’t alter the image in a mirror without getting at the thing imaged forth. Effect can be influenced only by way of its cause. The claim in every last instance is that there is an evil cause or believer, and so you are obliged each time to analyze the effect to uncover the fundamental error as the claim that there is an evil thinker and that this mind is yours. In human experience, this analytic approach must precede the realization of Mind as infinite and divine, inclusive of all reality and exclusive of all evil.

It may be superfluous to again reiterate that matter does not taste, feel, hear, smell, see or think, so matter cannot be the complainant. Doesn’t the claim always come to you as, “I see a sick man,” or “I see myself as sick, or material, finite, limited?” What is this I? Surely the divine Mind cannot know or experience anything contrary to its own infinitely flawless and harmonious nature. “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.” (Habakkuk 1:13). What is this other I or ego which seems to interpose itself? The claim that there is a conceiver or experiencer of evil is the claim we name “mortal mind,” and it is the root at which we must lay the ax, or the evil will but sprout forth in another form for us.

Are You Still Asking About The Reasons For Your Troubles?

Asking why error exists implies that it does exist as an actuality, and from that standpoint it is impossible to perceive that it cannot really be. The attitude that demands an explanation of the non-existent excludes the understanding of existence. You will never understand nothingness so long as you try to account for it as somethingness, whether in belief or otherwise, for “error” is simply a name for nothing. Mathematical understanding is not achieved through trying to explain the errors, but only by seeking the truths. Automatically thereby the errors are explained away, so that you are no longer handicapped by them. Finding God as All leaves nothing else to explain. There may be an intermediate period when you are conscious of both Truth and error, but you cannot climb up out of this while preoccupied with the error .

Rectify The Inversion

When assailed with the claim that your Mind is finite, material, mortal, counter that with the confident assertion that this that is Mind unfolding as your consciousness must be infinite, spiritual, divine, and that it cannot unfold negatively as anything else but itself and in accord with its divine nature. To see that evil mind and all its forms are divine Mind inverted – but divine Mind – is to rectify the inversion, and to find yourself truly alone with God, and all the hateful aspects of mortality fading away. “This is Life eternal” – and this is divine Mind. Appropriate your heritage through your God-given authority.

News To Know

blogcover

Dying Is Profitable

Whatever you do, please don’t fork out $2,000 for my second book Sounds of the Trumpet. Sounds crazy, I know, but after I “died” (according to rumor), used copies of my first book God Is All sold on Amazon.com for thousands. Once it was discovered that I’m very much alive, prices dropped back to normal.

No More Books

I’m writing this post to inform you that Sounds of the Trumpet is no longer available for purchase. As many of you know, Mystics of the World has shuttered. They were the life support for Sounds after it abruptly went out of print. Until further notice, only used copies are available. News like this has used booksellers swarming cyberspace like vultures hoping to make a quick profit. Don’t buy at an inflated price! Wait until we’re back in print again.

It Wasn’t Supposed To Be This Way

It was not supposed to be this way. I had high hopes for Sounds. I expected it to be more popular than God is All. Sounds was supposed to be the darling of all its distributors (more so than God is All). Rather than being an underground success like the first book, I really thought Sounds was going to go mainstream. Despite its auspicious beginning, none of this happened.

Unlike the self-published God is All, Sounds of the Trumpet was published by Big Sur in the United Kingdom. Things went sour very quickly. A foreign publisher and a stateside distributor is not the ideal combination. I never made a dime from the publisher who eventually shut down.

Why did I expect so much from Sounds? Of my two books, it’s my favorite. And that’s only because it shows the practicality of the Absolute in just about every conceivable situation. One reader recently described it as “one of the great books,” and I agree.

Here’s How You Can Help

Reader, please know, along with me, that Sounds of the Trumpet will “find” the ideal publisher to put it in the hands of interested readers at a decent price.

If God Is All, Why Do I Have To Pray?

In An Emergency, Where Is Truth?

mugger

Please Stop Asking This Question

“Allen, believe it or not, people have emergency situations where they don’t have time to go into long periods of silence waiting for a revelation. What do you do, in the moment, when you’re facing danger?” That’s the question a member of my congregation once asked.

I plead guilty to writing an awful lot about silent prayer. In my estimation, it is the golden key that opens the door of revelation. Is it the only key? I don’t know. What I do know, for sure, is that silent prayer gets the job done. But, silent prayer is not a god. It is a tool for the realization of God.

You’re Right, This Is No Time For Silent Prayer

When life-threatening trouble seems to spring out of nowhere, you don’t turn to silent prayer for deliverance. You turn to the Truth that’s been revealed in silent prayer. Often that revelation is the inner conviction that God is really all. That, reader, is enough.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I am a proponent of Truth’s practicality. Truth revealed is practical – even in the merciless clutches of life-threatening situations. I’ll share this story with you that happened many years ago.

Here’s What Happened One Spring Night

One cool spring night, I was walking home from a church near downtown Baltimore. While walking, I thought about all the ways I could improve the class I was teaching at the church. One idea after another popped into my head as I strolled along. I was in my own little world of ideas.

Suddenly, everything sped up like a movie on fast forward. First, I felt something pressing against the small of my back. Then, an arm wrapped around my chest, and two voices said, “Don’t turn around.” At that point I knew there was a gun in my back. One of the muggers threw me to the ground and rifled through all my pockets.

As I was falling, my first thought was “God is All.” At that point things seemed to slow down to a slug’s pace. As soon as I said God is All, I felt like I was wrapped in a cushiony cloud of protection. Then, I knew all was well.

The muggers ordered me to get up. Again, I was commanded, “Don’t turn around.” The next command was to run into the alley. I ran. Shots were fired. I kept running. Finally, I said to myself, “Allen, enough running.” I slowed down and continued my walk home – more deliberately. Throughout it all, I was not injured.

The Beauty of Silent Prayer

You do agree that this qualifies as an emergency situation, don’t you? Then consider these facts. There was no time to “go into the silence.” There was no time to seek Revelation. Truth-be-told, I didn’t try to think a spiritual thought. The words “God is All” flashed in my awareness without effort.

This is the joy and beauty of silent prayer. Once a Truth is revealed, that Truth will always surface at the appropriate time as a reminder that only God is present. You can never be thrust into any situation where Truth revealed doesn’t immediately deliver you from the illusion that something other than God’s Infinite goodness is going on.

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.
