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 Doing is as outdated and obsolete as “in” or “becoming”.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.

Has The Devil Wormed Its Way Into Your Spiritual Practice?

Allen White  God Is All

Just When I Thought I Was Done With The Devil

“Allen, I just had to get out of the Baptist church. The preacher talked more about the works of the devil than the power of God. Every Sunday I felt like Satan was sitting beside me.” Hoping to leave the devil behind, Sharon left the Baptist church. She explored other churches and opened herself to new ideas. One evening she attended a tape group where she heard the speaker talk about “finite sense” and “universal beliefs.” At one church, the reader mentioned something about “animal magnetism.”

Soon, Sharon prattled on about illusions, appearances, animal magnetism, “the seeming,” and at moments, when she wanted to sound really sophisticated, she spoke in low tones about the “veil of Maya.”

The “Aha” Moment

But one day Sharon thought,“Wait a minute here. Just when I thought I left the devil in the pew, here he is in the study group draped in new clothes with a host of new names: appearances, finite sense, mortal mind, etc. Sure, the name has changed, but it’s the same ol’ game – something going on other than God.”

It does no good to give a non-existent devil a new name if you’re dealing with the same culprit. Take away the pitchfork and red suit. Dress it up in white linen, and give it a new name; it’s still the same thing – A LIE.

Take Wing And Fly

Reader, answer this question honestly. When you left the traditional church to embrace a “higher spirituality,” didn’t you feel a little unsettled every time you heard or read the words illusion, appearance, and mortal mind? Didn’t you – at least once – say to yourself, “Ohhhhh boy, here we go again?”

Why did you feel this way? Because you knew and know that God Is All, and beside God there is nothing at all – nothing.

Fly on the wings of your innate knowing into the glorious experience of God’s Allness. There are no appearances to clip your wings. There are no illusions to alter your course. There are no mortal minds to lower your altitude. Fly on! God Is All!
