A Tip For Better Performances

The Day Honey Came To Class

Honey (not her real name) maintains this tip changed her life. I can’t vouch for that, but what I do know is that when I met Honey, she was a part-time blues singer and a full-time government worker. Now, she is a much in-demand blues singer, and that takes all her time.

I met Honey when she attended a class I was teaching. Somehow we got off course and started talking about performing – a subject I know a lot about. As a child and teen, I enjoyed showing my skills at the piano. The years went by, and stepping into adulthood I also stepped into a fear of performing.

Eliminate This Duality and Enhance Every Performance

As a child, I rightly imagined people were impressed with my skills. Later, my perception flipped and I imagined that every time I sat down to play, people were looking for finger and memory slips and interpretive bungling. You see, reader, I was functioning from a false duality – (1) me and (2) the audience.

Once I caught the duality, everything changed. What I learned and shared with Honey, I keep in mind before every speaking engagement, and every piano performance.

Sometimes Talent Is Not Enough

Before I tell you the “secret,” let’s go to a concert. You’ve been there. You’ve seen some performances that grabbed you and wouldn’t let you go for weeks. And, you’ve also seen some performances you forgot before the curtain closed. For some reason you and the performer did not connect. What separates a good performer from a great one is connectability (not in dictionary).

I remember listening to a young girl play in a recital. Her fingers flew up and down the keyboard. She hit all the right notes. It was a dazzling display of virtuosity. Later her teacher asked a friend what he thought. “Unless she connects with the music, and then connects with the audience, she can forget a career.” Technically, this young lady improved by the hour, or so it seemed, but she couldn’t win first prize in any competition. Why? Because she didn’t connect.

It’s Better Than Connecting With An Audience

I’m writing this post for professional and lay speakers, musicians, and other public performers. Here’s the “secret” I shared with Honey. “When you go on stage, look around at the audience and know I AND THE AUDIENCE ARE ONE INSEPARABLE MIND, LIFE AND PRESENCE.” I call it hugging them with Truth. Better than connecting is the acknowledgment of ONENESS.

You can take this one step further by looking around and knowing that “Right here is one Indivisible presence and I am It.” This not only includes the audience, but the walls, floor, chairs and all.

Before your next performance, try it! It works!

Have Fun Selling The Easy Way

Tips-and-Tricks-to-Sell-Your-Home1

Selling Things Is A Legitimate Activity

Are you in the business of selling homes? Are you an author selling books? Are you an oil-painter selling artwork? If you are a salesperson, this article is for you. If you, reader, are involved in sales, the first thing you should consider is this: WHAT APPEARS TO BE MY “SELLING” OF THIS PRODUCT IS A LEGITIMATE ACTIVITY, BECAUSE A SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLE UNDERGIRDS THIS PRODUCT.

Reader, you do not have to know what the spiritual principle is. All you have to know is that the product you are selling is intended to help and not harm.

Selling Will Be Difficult If You Believe These Lies

If the selling is legitimate, what is not legitimate is the worry and flurry of the selling process. Underlying the worry and flurry is the delusion of dualism. The scourge of the salesman is the delusion that the product, the buyer, and the seller are separated by time and space.

The main thing you, the salesperson, need to know is this: THE PRODUCT, THE SELLER AND THE BUYER IS ONE – THE SAME ONE.

Clancy Parker is a realtor. Two days ago he listed a home and now is on the prowl for a buyer. Judging by appearances, the home, the seller and the buyer are separate entities. Furthermore, this appearance of separation is underscored by the separation of time and space. These are lies.

Oneness And Sales

THERE IS ONLY ONE INDIVISIBLE PRESENCE AND POWER. God – the One Infinite and Indivisible Presence is the Presence of the home, the seller and the buyer. Their name is I AM. This translates to one infallible conclusion: they are ONE NOW and are not separated by either time or space.

Clancy, working from this premise, relieves himself from the worry of finding a buyer. He stays aware of the Oneness of Existence, and the perfect buyer effortlessly manifests. It’s magic, or is it?

Understand This And Your Sales Will Soar

What happens when the home is sold? What is really going on? GOD IS THE LAW OF FULFILLMENT. Simply put, nothing is sitting around waiting to be used and enjoyed. There are no vacuums in the universe. A home and its occupant IS ONE. The author’s book and the buyer IS ONE. The home never appears without the occupant. They are concurrently ONE. THIS IS THE REALITY – NOW AND ALWAYS.

When one appears to “sell” a home via spiritual insight, she has merely caught the vision of what has already taken place. (Reader, this one statement begs for contemplation. There are diamond ideas waiting to be revealed.)

Yes, spiritual insight catches up to reality, and the catching up may look like the realtor finds the right buyer who thinks the home is the answer to a prayer. They go to settlement, and everyone lives happily ever after. That’s how spiritual insight often fleshes out. BUT THE FLESHING OUT IS ALWAYS MILES BEHIND WHAT HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE.

It Even Works For Job Hunting

What has just been written is applicable for the so-called selling of any product – even for job-hunting. The job-hunter, the employer, and the perfect employment IS ONE – NOW. In the Prayer Project, I share the testimony of how this Truth has saved me from the heart-sinking frustration of job hunting.

To sum it all up, there is just ONE INFINITE INDIVISIBLE PRESENCE, and YOU ARE IT.

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

Our Readers Write

Last week Pam sent me an email telling me how much she enjoyed the post, “I Hurt So Bad I Can’t Get Still”. I asked her if there was any subject she would like me to blog about, and she responded. I enjoyed her response so much that I am sharing it with you.

Hi Allen,

I was thinking of things that might be worth writing about for your blog. You asked me if I had anything I might like be interested in reading about.

I was thinking that the kindest thing we can ever ‘do’ for someone else is to know Who They Are. Of course, this amounts to the kindest thing we can ever do for ourselves! Because of course, that’s the way Love works! We’re Them, Loving Ourselves!

I recently found a letter my Grandmother had written to me when I was a little child. I never knew her – she lived in England. We never even met. I didn’t remember ever having written to her as a child or receiving any letters from her. And yet here was this letter. She has long since died. I read the letter and felt a little tinge of sadness. Then I remembered Who She Is! And knowing That, Her Being Completely Complete, I knew too, that there can never be anything missing, from her, from me, from our relationship. It mattered not, that we had never met and hardly knew each other! My Grandmother Is It! We’re All It.

It occurs to me that That is All I ever need know. The world Is It. Already! Nothing to ‘fix’, nothing to ‘do’! And knowing That, I’m Free. Free to do whatever I choose to do. And in my Perfect Freedom, all I would choose to do is keep knowing Who I Am, Who All Are. And I’ll keep doing that as I go about my day, making my day a Perfect day!

Wow. It’s Amazing.

Sending Love!!!
Pam
