Neale Donald Walsch > Awareness, Honesty, Responsibility

Nothing has impressed me more, or impacted me more, in the entire body of work known as the With God books than the Three Core Concepts of Holistic Living given to us: Awareness, Honesty and Responsibility

To me the CWG message that We Are All One means exactly what it says. The conversation elaborates, telling us that All Things are One Thing. There is only One Thing, and all things are part of the One Thing there is.

Neale Donald Walsch > Neale Talks About... Relationships

In my life there has been no greater challenge than the challenge of relationships. I am speaking here now of romantic relationships, although all of my relationships—parental, familial, personal, business—have been a test for me from the very beginning.

Nothing is evil lest thinking make it so. Shakespeare wrote that, and this past week the world has been proving it. Again. There was another big brouhaha this past week -- this time over something that Pope Benedict XVI said recently. Some people have perceived his remarks as an insult to Islam, and thus, as damaging. The Pope's comments were damaging...but not because they were an insult to Islam. His words were, in fact, historically accurate. They were damaging for another reason altogether. For the past week many Muslims throughout the world have been angrily protesting. I believe that for most of them, this behavior is a learned response. Yet for Highly Evolved Beings -- which we humans say that we are -- anger that leads to violence (and, once again, this anger has) is neither the appropriate response, nor the most beneficial.
We are not paying enough attention to our health. Not as individuals, and certainly not as a planet. This is the single most important factor in our physical lives, and most of us are simply not paying enough attention to it. Conversations with God observes that our planet is populated by sentient beings of a rather primitive nature, and that what separates primitive beings from the highly evolved beings of the Universe is a particular behavior of highly evolved beings. Says CwG: “They observe what is so, and they do what works." We do not. We observe what is so and do not see it, or, worse yet, pretend that it isn’t so. Or we observe what is so, and do not do “what works,” because we simply don’t care what is so. Or we observe what is so, and we say that we care, but we do nothing to demonstrate that we care.

I was re-reading When Everything Changes, Change Everything the other day and I was deeply impressed again (as I was the first time around) with its statement that there are two sentences that can change your entire life. These are two sentences that you will want to remember verbatim. I mean, really remember. As in, never forget.

Neale Donald Walsch > Never Suppress Anger

We are exploring here the Five Natural Emotions: Grief, Anger, Envy, Fear, and Love. These emotions are tools, gifts given to us by God with which to build a letter life.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. I’ve been trying to figure out how to better use the wisdom in the extraordinary books which have come through me. I’ve been trying to understand how to render that wisdom functional in my everyday life. I’ve not had an easy time with this. Earlier in my life I at least had an excuse for my behaviors. I didn’t know any better. I had no idea what life was about, and so I couldn’t make any part of it work for me. In my utter desperation I cried out, and the result was my conversation with God. Now I’ve had the conversation, and been given the answers to life’s most difficult questions. There is only one question remaining. Will I live them?
A statement from Conversations with God that could change your life is the almost off-handed comment in the dialogue that everything you think, say and do is a prayer. Praying is not something we do at certain times, like when we are on our knees in church, or holding hands at the dinner table. It is something we are doing always. Let me repeat that.  We are always praying. Everything we think is a prayer. Everything we say is a prayer. Everything we do is a prayer. The prob­lem is, we just don’t know it. We think we are praying only when we are actually, consciously engaging in the activity we call “prayer.” But here is a great secret. God calls everything prayer. How can this be so? Why is it the way it is? CwG says that we are all creative beings, made in the image and likeness of God. Since God is the creator, so, too, are we. God has given us tools of creation, and they are three: thought, word and deed.
For it is not only a matter of our intentions and choices, but of God’s. I mean, is it God’s will (even if it is not ours) that these horrible things should happen? Philosophers and theologians have been trying to answer that question from the beginning of time. I was given an extraordinary answer to this question when I asked it in my dialogue. First, it was made clear to me that there are no victims and no villains in life. Now that was difficult for me, because to my eyes so many of the things we have done to each other are very cruel, very horrible, and to me the people who perpetrated these heinous crimes certainly were the “villains” of our society. Still, God said in CwG, Book 2, “I have sent you nothing but angels.” And the parable of The Little Soul and the Sun in Book 1 explains how this could be true.
