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.
