When the season of the outward ministration of others is passed and fulfilled in the everliving presence of Christ.

In an article published in The Friends Journal entitled "A Parallel Universe" the author writes:

The Spirit works on us to enable us to give something of what we have received to others, to act as a mirror. So it& is that God works not only directly but through human beings, each upon another.

Living in the primary and sufficient government of the spirit of Christ and being drawn out of the process of reflective thought as primary authority over human relationships and interactions.

People's relationships and interactions are generally mediated through the interplay between feelings, will, perceptions, sensations, and thoughts (the functions of the body). The appearance of the immanent and everliving presence of the spirit of Christ in the conscience sometimes draws people out of the process of being or life that is mediated through the reflective function of the body in matters relating to human interaction; they are come into relationships and interactions being…

From John Woolman on Ministry

From John Woolman (1741)

I went to meetings in an awful frame of mind, and endeavored to be inwardly acquainted with the language of the true Shepherd. And one day, being under a strong exercise of spirit, I stood up, and said some words in a meeting, but not keeping close to the divine opening, I said more than was required of me and being soon sensible to my error, I was afflicted in mind some weeks, without any light or comfort, even to that degree that I could take…

To those who are come into the immanent presence of everlasting self-sustaining being of Christ in their conscience and consciousness.

When a person comes to you with advice on how to think, act, or behave, in a given circumstance ... seek, rest in, and give the prerogative to, the immanent presence of the everlasting, self-sustaining being of Christ in your conscience and consciousness ... Watch!

When a governmental or institutional person comes to you suggesting you should give over civil freedom to them for your own protection ... seek, rest in, and give the prerogative to, the immanent presence…

Comfort in Turmoil

The experience of the self-sustaining eternal life of God immanently established in the consciousness, so that self-awareness, identity, meaning, and purpose is established in God's immanent self-sustaining life, is habitation in the coming of the Kingdom of God into human history.

Taking up habitation in this different way of being…

Benjamin Franklin's role in the withdrawal of Quakers from Pennsylvania politics

Being Drawn into the Life itself.

Research Notes: TGMOTG

Charles Leslie on page 196 of his 1697 edition of The Snake in the Grass highlights one of George Fox's responses to one of William Thomas' reflections on Quakers. Fox's response can be read in context on page 237 of the 1596 edition of The Great Mystery of the Great Whore which reads in part:

The work of the Miniſters of the Goſpel was not to reflect upon perſons, or strike at creatures ...; but they struck at the power…

The mystery of a faith held in a pure conscience.

James Naylor, in his “A Discovery of the First Wisdom from Beneath, and the Second Wisdom from Above” wrote two phrases that can be seen as a reflection of the mystery of a consciousness anchored in and a conscience informed by the direct experience of immanently sustained being itself in itself inshining upon the consciousness and conscience.

First he wrote that “the will and the brain are the serpents seat” ( View in Source -…

The following excerpt is from a new post on Abiding Quaker, patradallmann.com

This essay is about the final stage in the process of redemption: when we have observed and embodied the demands of the Law; when we have heeded faithfully the requirements of conscience; when we have watched and waited expectantly, and yet have come up empty, and not known…

New essay at Abiding Quaker: On Presumption and Belief in John 11

The following excerpt is from the 10th month post at Abiding Quaker .

Of the 21 chapters in John’s Gospel, chapter 11 has been for decades the least interesting to me. It was its scattered quality that put me off: too many characters, most of them contributing only snippets; vignettes…

The Power of God preserves forms and brings to see where forms are not.

Pr. He saith, If they can but destroy all formes, the power will fall with it; for the form preserves the power, page 37.

Answ. Contrary to the Apostle; many have the form, but deny the power. The power preserves the forme, sees the end of forms, and destroys them, and brings to see before forms were, where forms are not. For the Apostles who lived in the power, denied the Jewes forms, and Gentiles both, as we do now deny the Popish…

The Impulse of Immanent Being

There is a way of being, consciousness, or self-awareness that is innate in human beings and which is intuitively experienced rather than learned though intellectual effort or reflective consciousness. Reflective consciousness lights up in relation to reflections through the functioning of the body. That is, through the senses and intellectual or mental ideological constructs. A person may directly experience the nature of being that is mirrored through the…

The Christonomy Project - a window into one aspect of the vision.

From the age of five or six years old I have been an observer of nature and a documenter of natural history Click here to view an example. The nesting habits of wild birds is of particular interest. The method I use to survey breeding birds in an area is to sit quietly in one spot for a set number hours (4 to 8 hours) observing the bird activity around me over a period of days. Over time, a flash…
