Absolute Truth, Pure and Simple

Anything other than that which is Truth is necessarily not Truth. Hence, that which is Truth is all there is, because all else is not. And since that which is Truth is all there is, it is therefore all that the word "all" means: totality, completeness, wholeness, oneness, love, harmony, joy, perfection, purity, goodness, grace, innocence, absoluteness, peace, infinity, abundance, omnipresence, omniscience, awareness, illumination, omnipotence, omniaction and eternality. Notice that these comprise most of the words used to indicate the nature of the Being we call God.

And since any attributes contrary to the attributes of Truth, would necessarily be contrary to Truth, they could only occur if something which is not Truth were possible, which clearly is impossible.

To our astonishment, our logic is revealing that the world believes something that is actually impossible. It believes the lie that God is not all there is, but that there can be something other than God. With that one erroneous belief all manner of illusions appear: Oneness splinters into separation, good mutates into evil, entirety degrades into fragmentation, totality collapses into lack, completeness turns into disintegration, wholeness declines into disease, love twists into hate, harmony flips into disharmony, joy alternates with sadness, perfection gives way to endless flaws, purity becomes debauchery, grace is obscured by cynicism, innocence is bludgeoned by guilt, absoluteness becomes partial and relative, peace is swallowed up by war, infinity lapses into limitation, abundance declines into poverty, omnipresence becomes local and small, omniscience shrivels into ignorance, awareness becomes unconscious, omnipotence deflates into impotence, omniaction declines into lethargy and eternality turns into mortality --- and all because one impossible lie is so universally believed --- the lie that says that God is not All.

Now even though the logic of it is simple, clear and certain, the sheer magnitude of its implications require that we become aware of a highly intimate inner knowing that we can discover only in silent contemplation. Indeed if God is all there is, all that "I" can be is God. But we must become quiet enough to know this to be true in the most intimate way imaginable, to ascend in meditation past all the chaotic mesmerisms about ourselves and our world until we arrive at that absolute center of consciousness where "I" and God (the sole reality that is all there is) are one and the same.

Be very careful here, it is only the existence of your awareness that is necessary for the above to be known; not your body, personality, or anything else about yourself; just the You that is pure Awareness, The Divine Awareness about which Tennyson says "closer is He than breathing. Nearer than hands and feet."

Would you like to do it now?

Close your eyes. Quietly know that God is all there is and all there ever can be, and then become very still inside so that you can know this far deeper than words or thoughts. If you will simply do this as often as you can, the mesmerism of duality will continually subside, and you will become more and more an oasis of True Godliness to those still mesmerized by lies.

And even though the universal mesmerism that creates the vast dream of humanity may linger, your effect within that dream will be to catalyze --- through the inspiration of what your life in the dream will become --- the desire and ability to awaken on the part of those aspects of your Self who, in the dream, still appear to be "others." You will be an effective aspect of the symphonic rising crescendo of the Great Awakening wherein all of humanity, and all consciousness everywhere, will let go of all illusions and realize and experience the universe as the One Infinite Consciousness.

With Much Love,

Ben
