Know The Truth About Your Body

Straight-To-The-Heart

 

There’s Only One Correct Answer

11 + 52 = ?

Reader, you know the answer to this equation, and you know there is only one correct answer. Children, still a little shaky in math, could write ten different answers, but there is only one correct answer to this equation.

Just like the above equation, there is only one correct answer regarding the nature of the Body, and yet you can flip through several spiritual books that mention the Body and find that they each say something different about the nature of the Body. Even among authors of the Absolute, you will find contradictory opinions about the Body.

Who’s Right? Who’s Wrong?

Some authors say the Body is an idea in Mind devoid of Life, Substance and Intelligence. Other authors say the Body is God embodied, implying that the Body is Life, Substance and Intelligence embodied. Some authors take a left turn down a very dark path and claim the Body does not exist at all. Each camp has its own “followers.” And still, THERE IS ONLY ONE CORRECT ANSWER CONCERNING THE NATURE OF THE BODY – YOUR BODY. You will not be satisfied until you find that answer, and when the true nature of your Body is revealed, you will be astonished by what you discover.

A Thrilling Adventure / An Astonishing Discovery

Are you ready and willing to make this astonishing discovery? Rather than turn to so called “outer” sources, take a thrilling adventure by turning to your Self. Trust me, your Self will not fail you. Years ago a man shared this story with me.

“Allen, for years I did not think that turning within for answers would work for me. Always I reached for a book and randomly flipped through the pages hoping to land on a line or two that I could convince myself to be a revelation. But, these contrived answers didn’t satisfy.

“One day, I made a decision. I said, ‘Thomas, from this day on, you are going to trust your Consciousness to reveal the answers to your questions.’ It wasn’t easy, but I stood firm. I went through a frustrating phase of going within and coming out with nothing. Just when I was about to give up, my Consciousness kicked in gear and answers started coming forth. Since, then I have trusted my Consciousness to reveal any needed Truth. The answers are not instantaneous, but they are satisfying.”

Know That You Know What You Know

I hope the story above gives you confidence to trust “your” Consciousness to reveal the true nature of your Body.

Reader, I have a few questions for you: Is the Body an idea in Mind, or is it Mind Itself? How do you know? Was the answer revealed, or was it merely read in a book? Consciousness knows and will reveal the answer so that you will know that you know what you already know (inherently). Trust it!

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.

Rethinking Immortality

immortality_quote_2

This excerpt is by Joel Goldsmith. A collection of his writings on the Body is carried by Denice Jutras (Mystics Of The World). It is an excellent publication.

Have You Thought About Immortality As A Present Reality?

We are all interested in the subject of immortality, but not merely an immortality that is attained after death. Immortality means here, in the body. We will not lose our body, but we will lose our false sense of body and come into the realization of the true nature of body. By losing the false sense of body, we will not lose our body, the body which we have now.

I am not speaking in the abstract, but I am saying that in this very body we must experience immortality. Just as in this body, by losing the sense of disease and coming into a higher realization of perfect body, there is no loss of body, just the loss of a false sense of body. In the same way, to experience immortality here and now occasions no loss of body, but only the loss of a false sense of body.

In our meditation, let us realize this: Immortality here and now; the immortality of this body and this universe, and all that we must lose is the false sense the world entertains of the body and of the universe.

You Are Not A Mere Reflection, Image or Idea

In our old teaching we were effect – an idea, reflection, expression, image, or likeness. In this approach you will find that you are consciousness, the very consciousness that is the cause of body, business, and home.

We formerly believed that a discordant body, business, or home was do to a power outside of ourselves, acting upon us. As long as we accept the belief that there is a power outside of us, just that long will we be seeking to get in touch with a good power. If the belief is accepted that a law of time is acting upon our bodies and mentalities, our experience will be on that level.

The Power Operating In Your Experience

There is no power operating in our experience separate from our own consciousness, but as long as we believe there is and are trying to get in touch with it, we will never contact it. The only treatment worth calling a treatment is the realization that, “I am life eternal. I am the way, the truth, and the life. I and my Father are One, and that Oneness constitutes immortality, harmony, grace, joy, and abundance of my body and Soul.

This Is What Happens When Your Body Is Healed

A reader asked this question:

“If my mortal appearing body appears to be sick, and through spiritual insight it is healed and appears as a well mortal body, isn’t the well mortal body just as unreal as the sick, mortal body? And doesn’t this make a well appearing mortal body as undesirable as a sick appearing mortal body?

Yes! and No! The mortal appearing body is nothing but the Immortal Body mis-perceived. (I really don’t like this word, but it helps in the explanation.) The sick, mortal body is the Whole, Immortal Body mis-perceived. This Immortal Body – your Body – consists of the Light that is the Presence of God.

Pay attention to this! When the body seems to be healed, what stays and what goes? Reader, it helps to answer this question aloud.

The disease appears to go, but the Body remains. The Body remains because the Body is real. It does exist. Your Body is Real! The disease, however, (perceived to be nothing) no longer seems to be.

What has happened here? When the mortal body appears to be healed, the Immortal Body (of pure Light and God Substance) shows forth a little more clearly. Had the awareness of the Immortal Body been totally complete, it would have shown forth as a Body of Pure Light – not merely a “healed” Body.

Never deny your Body. Never accept mortal lies about your Body.

What To Do About That Diagnosis

God is All

“Allen, the other day I went to the doctor’s office to get my test results. It wasn’t good. Should I just ignore the doctor’s diagnosis and focus on God’s Allness?” This question raises its head too many times to ignore; so let’s dive into the answer.

First Handle The Fear

The first order of business is to face the fear and snuff it out. Here is what worked for me. Faced with what looked like a severe health crisis, I slumped on the bed trembling (never a good sign). Fear gripped so tightly that worst case scenarios flashed across my mind. I had to do something … and quick. My next thought was, “Allen, is God All?” I answered “Yes.”

Starting from God’s Allness, I prayed asking this one question, “What mind is experiencing this fear?” The answer was not immediate. Again, I asked and listened. That night the answer revealed itself: “There is no mind aware of anything to fear.” Immediately the fear left. The situation did not change, but it was no longer in charge.

In my lectures, I often say that so-called disease is like a stray cat. Instead of milk, it feeds on fear. If there’s no fear around, it slinks away. With the fear gone, the (seeming) problem goes.

Discovering The Diagnosis Isn’t Real

Now that you have handled the fear, it’s time to handle the diagnosis. This has to be by way of Revelation. Reader, I know you’ve heard stories of people facing life-threatening diseases who picked up a book and were healed after reading a few paragraphs. I heard a story of someone who laid my book God Is All on an ailing body part and was healed. These stories don’t impress me. Revelation is the best way, and below are suggestions to prime the pump of Revelation.

In silent prayer ask:

(1) Is this diagnosis of __________ true or not?
(2) Right here where _________ seems to be, what is here?

That’s my way, but Marie Watts suggests another line of questioning that restored her sight and “cured” her cancer.

(1) God, do you know anything about _____________?
(2) Then, do I know anything about ______________?
(3) Does any mind know anything about ___________?

Do not reason out your answers. There is no power in a reasoned answer. Wait, and let the Voice of Revelation speak. This is the Voice of your God Consciousness. When It speaks, “the earth melts”. Simply put, all seeming material conditions are revealed and EXPERIENCED as nothing – no thing at all.

What To Do About This Material Sense Of Body

Thanks to Darcio (a blog family member from Brazil), I was inspired to dust off a book I haven’t read in ages by Arthur Corey. Below is an excerpt from his Christian Science Class Instruction

The claim is made that, although man may be spiritual and perfect in his true being, he has here another body – one that is material and imperfect. The thing that extinguishes an erroneous sense of body is the realization that he hasn’t got another body.

Realizing that this which appears to be a material body is exempt from the restrictions of finite belief, perfect body is manifested in exact ratio. The only material body you could have would be the belief that the body is material. You cannot dispose of a material sense of body as though it were a thing , but you must transcend it; and this ascension appears as a constantly improved bodily estate.

You cannot die out of a material body, you must live out of it.

Human Nonsense

let there be light allen white

This excerpt is taken from LIGHT by Lillian DeWaters

Spirit is our only Self, I or ME — boundless, immeasurable, timeless, spaceless, incorporeal. There is no mortal, human or material being, mind, self or body. There is but “ME” — IAM the One who is Real and Present.

When this new Revelation is seen and accepted, there will be no more sickness, sorrow, disease, pain or death. As the belief and teaching that we are mortals, humans or mankind is done away with, there will be no misbelief, misconception, erring teaching or wrong thinking.

Seeing that the One Self, “I” or “ME” reigns alone, and that there can be no other identity — whether as mind, consciousness or body — each one should reject and discard the beliefs and teachings which identify oneself as man, humanity or mankind; for within this very identification lies the subjection to suffering, disease and limitation.

Our deliverance, therefore, is not from suffering, worry, fear or old age, but that one ceases to believe or accept that he is a mortal or human being, and that his body is material or physical.

Make A Vow…Take A Bath

allen white God Is All

I am biased. I think that “Absolutely Yours” is a great blog. Do you realize that these blog posts are meant to be lived and not merely read? How To Take A Spiritual Bath (previous post) is good reading, but it’s better as a living practice. Live it and see for yourself!

Read, or re-read the previous post, and then make a vow to take a spiritual bath for seven consecutive days. To get the best “cleansing” effect, DO NOT USE THE “BATH” TO FIX OR HEAL YOUR BODY. BATHE FOR PLEASURE OF HONORING GOD AS YOUR BODY.

After you’ve bathed for seven consecutive days, share your story with me and our blog family. You know you can always contact me at

Body Month (The How-Tos)

body o light  allen white
The “Body Month” is a month you choose,  where your prayerful focus is on discovering, understanding, and contemplating the truth of your Body.

The Questions

During this “month,” you retreat to your God Consciousness and ask such questions as:

  • What is the Body?
  • Why do I have a Body?
  • Is the Body real, or is it an illusion?*
  • Was this Body born?
  • What is it about this Body that is most important for me to realize?

Above  are just suggested questions. Whether you use these questions or not, I strongly suggest that you consider the last question being one of the questions that you ask.

Listening For The Answer

Anyone can reason out the answer to these questions, but there is no power in a reasoned-out answer. You want a God-Revealed answer. After you’ve asked your question, the important thing is listening for the answer.

Contemplation

Self-Questioning and Listening are just two aspects of the “Body Month.” Contemplation is the other equally important aspect. Contemplation is calmly pondering the Body from a God Is All point-of-view. But more than that, contemplation is a calm, effortless consideration of the Body knowing that the God Is All point-of-view is the only Reality of the Body–your Body.

Now It’s Up To You

Fellow Absolutists, choose today which month will be your “Body Month.” Make your list of body-related questions. Once you actually begin your month, this is your short list of Daily Dos:

  1. Choose one or two questions. Take one question at a time and listen expectantly for the answer. Often, the answers are not instantaneous. Be patient. When you start getting antsy, get up and come back later. Above all, don’t reason out your answers.
  2. Contemplate your Body from a God Is All point-of-view.

Spiritual Help After The Medical Exam

ocean  of consciousness allen white Absolutely Yours

No Guilt Allowed

You’ve read the “medical exam” post, and that ol’ devil guilt showed up. Perhaps you said to yourself, “Maybe I’m not as spiritual as I thought. After all, I turned to the doctor (medical viewpoint) instead of relying solely on Truth (spiritual viewpoint).” Or did you think some other insane idea like, “I wish I could have faith like Joan Jenkins and rely only on God for my health concerns.” Enough is enough. What good can come out of this train of thought? Does it lead to the awareness of God’s allness? No, so just STOP.

Health Is Who You Are

Reader, if you have already allowed your body to be probed, monitored, and x-rayed, take comfort in the fact that you did what you felt was the best thing to do at that time. Realize that your visit to the doctor’s office was prompted by a desire to experience an aspect of your spiritual identity: HEALTH.

You are guilty of nothing. Your Identity as God-Identified is still intact. Nothing has changed. If you are harboring feelings of guilt, forgive yourself. To forgive yourself is simply recognizing your Self as the pure and perfect One – regardless.

Moving Onward After The Exam

So you’ve had the exam, and the results left you in a funk. All day long, you’ve been beating up on yourself thinking about what you could’ve and should’ve done. Get off of that merry-go-nowhere and let’s move forward. In many blogs, sermons and classes, I’ve made this recommendation: Get a second opinion from the Maker. It’s the most powerful next step you can take.

Your prayer might look something like this: “It appears that I have been diagnosed with _________. My body feels (or looks) ______________. My only desire is to know what is true here. What is the absolute truth concerning this body?”

This, of course, is followed by silent listening for the answer. Daily, you keep asking and listening until Truth is revealed. You will have to be both persistent and consistent.
