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.

You Are Invited To Participate

It’s been years since Absolutely Yours has called for an “All-Hands-On-Deck” project. I think that now is a good time to invite you (and every other reader) to participate in this 30-Day I-Am-Already-Enlightened Prayer Project.

The Foundation Of This Project

Reader, you are sincere about God being All. You are sincere about honoring your God Identity, and you are sincere about experiencing the kingdom of heaven now (in this lifetime). If these are false assumptions about yourself, stop reading this post.

If you made it to this sentence, I can safely assume that you frequently contemplate God’s Allness. Perhaps you sit in short (or long) periods of silence listening for the “still small voice.” This is good, but this “Project” is going to tweak what you are already doing. Read on!

Starting With God’s Allness

Starting from God’s Allness as your base point, you have to agree that God is the only Mind or Awareness. And, don’t you agree that this Mind is not seeking more Light, but is the Light Itself? Aren’t you included in this Awareness? Let me rephrase that. Isn’t this infinite, omnipresent Awareness, that is Light Itself, the very I that you are? Please answer me.

The Inevitable Conclusion

This means that right now – right as you read this post, you are totally and completely enlightened. You are not a seeker after the Light, but rather, you are the Light Itself. Reader, if you were not completely enlightened (or illumined) right now, God would not be All.

Before we get to the “Project,” there’s one more question. Do you contemplate Truth and sit in silences hoping to be more enlightened? Do you hope for Illumination? It’s okay if your answer is “yes,” but you must be aware of the implications.

Hoping for more enlightenment and Illumination is starting from the false premise that you are a seeker after the Light rather than the Light Itself. Reader, nothing good can come from a false premise. It’s time to get back on track. I promise you that nothing but good can come from this “Project.”

Starting The Prayer Project With The Tweak

Starting on February 1, I am asking you (and all readers) to contemplate the following idea (not necessarily the exact words) for 30 days.

As God is All, and all that I AM, I am totally illumined and enlightened right now and always. I am the Light Itself. I am Illumination Itself. I AM the full understanding of Truth, for I am Truth Itself.

Feel free to change the words to suit what works for you, but keep the same basic ideas. Follow this with a period of silence – [here’s The Tweak] not seeking the Light, but being the Light. Let your Consciousness surge and soar as Infinite Awareness.

The Challenge goes through March 1, 2016. After the 30 days are over, please write and let me know about your experience.

You May Need To Flip It — Here’s How

back_flip

Do You Begin Your Contemplations Like Dorinda?

Every morning, and most evenings, Dorinda picks a book from the “spiritual” section of her bookcase. She opens the book to a random page and starts reading. She reads until she reaches a passage that stirs something in her. Dorinda reads this passage over and over, savoring every idea in it. Then, she closes her eyes and contemplates.

Dorinda says that the reading inspires her prayers and contemplations. She says the books anchor her prayers in spiritual principle, and keeps her mind from wandering aimlessly through a maze of insane thoughts. “But,” Dorinda says, “I don’t always reach for a book. Sometimes I listen to a tape or some audio file stored on my computer.”

You Are Already As Enlightened As Christ Jesus

This is how many people begin their contemplations, and I will not criticize. For many years I did the same thing. Reader, if you begin your contemplations like Dorinda, do you ever ask yourself, “When am I going to be as enlightened as the authors I am reading?” Do you feel like you are creeping closer to enlightenment, but never getting there?

The Truth is you are already as enlightened as any author you have ever read – even as enlightened as Christ Jesus. But, to experience this Fact, I am suggesting one simple and powerful act: Flip It. (I’ll explain later.)

Your Consciousness Is Enough

Stop thinking that you have to reach outside of yourself for inspiration to start your contemplations. Your Consciousness is enough. No, you don’t have a personal Consciousness separate from the One Infinite Consciousness, but the Consciousness you have and ARE is enough. Trust it to be.

Reader, you don’t need to pick up a book from the night stand or turn on a tape to jumpstart Consciousness. Your Consciousness is not a car battery. It is Infinite, Constant Awareness. Start relying on your Self completely. Prove to your Self that It is ALL SUPPLYING FULFILLMENT. Prove to your Self that It is the inspiration you seem to need. Prove to your Self that your Consciousness is all the motivation you seem to need.

You know, like I know, that one day we have to stop reaching outside of ourselves for any kind of “help”. Why wait for that day? The help you seem to need is in you as ever-present fulfillment.

Here’s How To Flip It

Earlier, I suggested that you Flip It. Here’s how. You simply contemplate first, and read last – if you still feel the need to read. At first this may seem awkward. You close your eyes and it feels like you’re watching a blank screen waiting for a movie that never starts. You wait, and wait. Nothing happens. A thought may flash across your mind like, “Allen is crazy.” Then you reach for the nearest book. STOP! Put the book down. Give your Self a chance!

Close your eyes again (if closing eyes is what you do) and reason this way, “Since there is only one Mind, one Consciousness, one Awareness, then the Awareness of the author and my Awareness IS one. The Truth that’s in the book is already present as my Awareness.”

Now settle back into your contemplation and watch how Truth effortlessly flows like a gurgling brook. Try this for two weeks. Even if you seem to have a rough start, most likely you’ll never go back to reading first. And you will see that “your” Consciousness is more than enough.

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.

Your Doing Is Perfection’s Doing

Solar-System-2

Did I Mislead Anyone?

In a recent post (You Are Powerful…), a reader responded with these words:

“I’d like to offer this for consideration. Infinite Omnipresence doesn’t actually “do”. Nothing can be added to already infinite perfection. The analogy of God maintaining the orbits of planets is more likely as not tending to encourage the view of separate things being governed by God. Doing is as outdated and obsolete as “in” or “becoming”.

When I posted that excerpt from God Is All, I did not intend to lead anyone into the ditch of dualism. I did make the false assumption that readers of that post (most anyway) had already read God Is All and understood that God, the one inseparable presence and power, is all there is of the planets.

God Is Always Doing

Moving on. Should we ditch the word “do”? Not yet! One definition of the word “do” is to be active. God is not only active, but is Activity Itself. This entire universe is alive as the activity (the doingness) of God. The entire universe. This means your Being/Body is the doingness of God. The so-called planets in orbit are the doingness of God.

It is true that God is not doing in the sense of bringing about something, but God is busy in the scintillating and shimmering Activity of Being Itself – Being Itself as Your Self. In the visual experience of illumination, you literally see God’s Doingness (Activity).

Is God Doing the Hurricanes and Avalanches?

No is the short answer. The long answer is God’s doingness is always consistent with God’s nature which is Infinite Indivisibility – LOVE. To be active as violent hurricanes and avalanches, God would have to be self-destructive.

Reader, answer this question: Is destruction Love in action? Then no seemingly destructive activity is the activity of God. Then, what is it? NOTHING.

Are you thinking, “Allen, you can’t really mean that?” Yes, I do. There are many reports on record of praying people who have seemingly stopped hurricanes, typhoons, and tornadoes in their deadly tracks. Explaining how they prayed, they report something like “I just realized only God was present, only God was power. Note the word only. It immediately cancels out the presence and power of hurricanes and the like. The word only immediately reveals them to be NO THING.

God’s Activity in Daily Living

Each morning, remind yourself that you ARE Perfection’s Infinite, Indivisible Activity. Don’t be selfish. Know that everyone (and everything) you see is Perfection’s Infinite, Indivisible Activity – God’s Doingness.

Reader, how can you possibly run into discord and inharmony when you know that ALL ACTIVITY IS THE ONE INDIVISIBLE PRESENCE IN ACTION. With these daily reminders, you have to report that your life seems to be running as smoothly as a well-oiled machine.

In the next post, we will take God’s activity into the business arena.

If You Can’t Say This, You’re Just Spinning Your Wheels

The Most Subtle Form Of Dualism

Every writer of the Absolute agrees that all of our seeming troubles stem from a false belief that there is another presence and power beside God. The word we give to this diabolical belief is dualism –the belief in twoness.

Haven’t you heard someone emphatically say, “I know there is only one presence, and I know there is only one power,” yet in the next breath they confess, “But I cannot say I am God.”? This is a most subtle form of dualism, and it needs to be completely wiped out of awareness.

Reader, if you are not God you must be some presence other than God. This idea has to scare the bejesus out of you for two reasons: (1) It flings open the door to every seeming form of trouble imaginable. (2) It reveals that God is not really all to you.

Wiping Out The Human Sense Of Your Identity

Just thinking I am God gives some people a sudden attack of dry heaves. Why? Here’s what I’ve been told: “It’s blasphemy. How, with all my faults, flaws, and foibles, can I say I am God?” Translation: How dare I elevate my humanity to divinity!

You can’t, and you don’t! The born i (and its entire human history) is not the I that you are. You cannot elevate the born i. However, you can realize its nothingness. You can eliminate it from your awareness by claiming the unborn I as your only I. The finite, time-space bound i is not the I that you are. You cannot elevate this i, but you can eliminate it from your awareness by claiming the Infinite, Eternal I as your only I. The I that you are does not need lifting. It only needs recognition and acceptance.

Claiming the Infinite, Eternal, Omnipresent I as the I that You Are is how you completely eliminate dualism.

I AM Contemplation

This post has already been sent out to God Is All E-Course Subscribers. It was so well received that I decided to post on Absolutely Yours. BACKSTORY: One evening in silent listening, these words announced themselves. Since then, these words have been the launching pad for many contemplations.

There is no God giving or withholding Health.
There is just I AM
and I AM That I AM.

There is no God giving or withholding Wealth.
There is just I AM
and I AM That I AM

There is no God giving or withholding Enlightenment.
There is Just I AM
and I AM That I AM

There is no giving and withholding God.
There is just I AM
and I AM That I AM.

There is none to give to,
and there is none to receive
There is just I AM
and I AM That I AM
