The purpose of this blog, and the little book after which it is named, is to point— more or less directly, by means of traditional modes of Christian discourse —to the “I Am” presence which is Christ-in-you, while sidestepping, insofar as possible, both dogmatic beliefs and skeptical critiques, each of which have their place, but both of which can be very distracting.  All that is necessary, at this point, is to simply feel the “I Am” presence in the stillness of the present moment—in the space between the out-breath and in-breath, for example, or in the silence between each heartbeat. “Be still and know that I Am God” (Psalms 46:10).
 
There is no need to accept any doctrine or dogma that seems false to you—or to give your unqualified assent to any proposition that seems doubtful. What is required, however, is that you exchange your will for God’s will; exchange that which you imagine to be desirable for that which IS— that which always IS —that which is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
 
Nothing that is said herein should be taken simply “on faith” (in the way that expression is ordinarily used or misused). The “I Am” presence which IS the living Christ is perfectly verifiable— it can be examined —touched and handled, as it were! (cf. John 20:24-29; I John 1:1). “Taste and see that the LORD is good” (Psalms 34:8)

Note to skeptics and critics: Please understand that the biblical texts cited herein are employed illustratively and inspirationally—they are not offered as “proof-texts.”  The written word points to the living Word.  When it comes to the living Word, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

    Love the statement, “There is no need to accept any doctrine or dogma that seems false to you….” Oddly, it took me many years to realize that it was “OK” to be totally honest and openly question doctrines that have never made any sense to me. I have come to realize that many hold to “the truth of the Scriptures” as they learned them in their fundamentalist or evangelical churches out of fear and the false idea that to love God and call yourself a believer you have to accept doctrines whether or not they make sense. Finding out that I can feel the presence of The great “I AM”, grow in my relationship with Christ, submit my will to Him, and NOT bury my questions or turn off my brain has been very freeing. I encourage all Christians raised in these traditions to be radically honest with yourself and God.

      Ditto, Sheryl–there is no substitute for this kind of openness and honesty before God! We need not know all the answers, but denying and repressing our questions can only alienate us from the truth. Thanks for sharing!
