What Are These Evil Appearances?

Appearances Of Evil Alert You To The Reality Of Perfection

Let’s now perceive how it is, and why it is, that any appearance of evil is not evil – that it really serves a good purpose. If the fulfillment of any purpose is good, the impulsion behind this purpose has to be good, and not evil. The mistake lies in our misconception of the meaning of that which we have called evil.

Just as a mistake in mathematics calls your attention to the perfect mathematical fact, so it is that any appearance of evil serves to call your attention to some specific aspect of good, or God. God is Perfection; thus Perfection is a universal as well as a specific fact. Any appearance of imperfection serves to call your attention to the perfect Principle, which is Perfection.

Evil Can Only Be Troublesome If You Think It Is Real

A mistake can seem to be troublesome, or evil, only so long as it is mistaken for a fact. One your attention is focused upon the perfect fact, the mistake is canceled. It simply vanishes.

You do not resist the mistake (evil). You do not attempt to overcome it, or to oppose it. You know it to be a mistake, and that ends it as far as you are concerned. The seeming evil served its purpose, and your attention is now focused upon the perfect Principle. You keep your attention focused upon the universal and the specific fast until the evidence of this fact is apparent.

You can never make a figure 5 become a figure 4. Neither can you make an appearance of imperfection become perfect. Your awareness of Perfection is the revelation and the evidence of that which is revealed.

You Are Always Abundantly Supplied

For example, it may appear that an appearance of lack seems to be present. This is not evil. Rather, it should be considered as merely the signal signifying the presence of infinite, omnipresent Supply, which means that you will immediately contemplate the universal fact – omnipresent Supply.

When you are constantly and consciously attentive to the perfect fact – and only this fact – the evidence of its presence is inevitable.

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!
