Daily Thought


Your whole life is a message, did you know that? Every act is an act of self-definition. Every thought is a film on the movie screen of your mind. Every word is voice mail for God. Everything you think, say, and do sends a message about you

Life Is Energy


A Note from Neale...

My dear Friends,

Everything in life is energy. There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- that is not energy. Everything vibrates with this energy, and the number of vibrations, or wave patterns, within a given period of time is called the "frequency" with which the energy fluctuates. Energy is always fluctuating. Always. That is, energy never remains static. If energy were to ever remain static, everything would suddenly stand still. The physical world would simply stop, as in the freeze frame of the movie. In that moment life would end.

Life, then, could be defined as movement. When movement stops, life stops. We have nothing to worry about, however, because movement never stops. It is built into the system. It is the system. This information is more than esoteric data. It has some practical implications that may have escaped you. It has applications in day-to-day living that could change your life in remarkable ways.

For instance, ever notice how energy flows? Energy never remains at Straight Up Zero. If there was such a thing as an Energy-O-Meter, you would see that the needle is always moving. And the meter is very sensitive. Very sensitive. You would see the needle swing wildly to the left or right of Dead Center with the slightest fluctuation in the vibe.

"Dead Center" would be an apt description of the moment when the needle is pointing straight up. That would mean there is Zero Fluctuation of the energy, hence no movement, hence no life. That would, indeed, be dead center!

Now, why I am bringing this all up here? Your energy in every single moment is either moving towards something or away from it. It is either attracting or repelling. It is either pulling something closer or pushing it farther away.

Within the phenomenon known as Space, "moving toward" something or "pulling" something closer is the same thing. It is the experience of shortening the space between two objects (or, in fact, two experiences). The way you think about a thing attracts it or repels it. That's because what you want is energy moving in one direction or the other. We call these "to and fro" energies "love" and "fear". Those are names of actual human emotions, but, in truth, they are simply our ways of describing E-motions -- that is, energy-in-motion. is always in motion. It's either moving toward something or away from it. It cannot do both and it cannot do neither. It is eternally doing one or the other. The swings of the meter to the left and the right of Dead Center are necessary, and part of the normal function of life. The fluctuation must occur, and so this business of moving toward something or away from it is not a question of "good" and "bad". One thing is not "better" than the other. It is just what "is".

That is important to understand. Otherwise, we might get into our judgments about it.

The trick with regard to energy is to learn how to regulate it so that you can control the ebb and flow. You are actually controlling the ebb and flow right now, but you may not be doing it consciously. Regulating energy is about conscious creation of the ebb and flow. It is about conscious attenuation of the vibration. It is about adjusting the frequency of your energy on purpose.

Because the needle on the Energy-O-Meter is so very sensitive, the slightest, tiniest, most minute fluctuation in your personal energy causes the reading to vary massively from one moment to the next. Even from one milli-second to the next. So we have this needle swinging wildly from left to right past zero, which is at center. The needle is never at Straight Up Zero except when it passes through Zero Point on its way left or right.

Now, with regard to any person, place, or thing in your life, ask yourself this question: On this day, am I moving towards this, or away from it? This will help explain why your relationship with your Significant Other is going the way it is going. Are you experiencing greater closeness or greater distance? Are you experiencing an increase in the energy's intensity, or a decrease?

More important, is the next remark you were going to make, or the next thing you are going to do, likely to swing the needle to the left or to the right? Is it getting warmer or is it getting colder in the environment of your heart? What is the "temperature" of your present interaction? To what "degree" do you see it changing the mood of the moment? To what extent will this shift to the left or the right of center affect the long term balance within the system?

These are interesting things to think about just before opening our mouths to say something to another. These are fascinating things to explore just before taking some action or making some choice, be it large or small, in the day-to-day process of our living. Is this action drawing me closer to, or pushing me further away from, my loved one? Are these words pulling that Special Other just a tiny bit further in, or moving that Special Other just a tiny bit further away? Which way is this sensitive meter pointing?

Of course, it can't always be at a +10. Sometimes it's going to be at -2 or -3. You can't have "up" without "down". You can't have "left" without "right". You can't have "cold" without "warm". You have to have the fluctuation. The fluctuation is good. It is necessary. It is, as we have said, part of the process. But here's something that most people don't understand about that process: You can control it. You can regulate it. Indeed, you are doing so in every moment. It is simply a question of whether you know what you are doing.

When you know what you are doing, it is called Conscious creation. Conscious creation is the deliberate construction of energy patterns in a particular frequency of fluctuation. To put this simply, it is the sending out of "good vibes" deliberately and intentionally. It is the activation of the choice to attract rather than repel, to move toward rather than away, to pull in rather than push out.

Is this what you were doing with the last thing that you said to the person with whom you want to feel closer? Read the last e-mail that you sent to that person. Do you think that it is swinging the needle to the right or to the left of Point Zero?

It's just a question...

Letters to Neale:

Dear Neale,

My question is: If I had to choose one of the 9 books in the
CwG series to give to someone else as an introduction to this material, which one should it be? Recently I had someone ask me, "What is all this about? What are you 'into'?", and I wanted to share one of the books with them, but I couldn't decide which one would be best, or would give them the best idea, of what Conversations with God was all about. What's you choice? You must get asked this question a lot.

Neale Responds

Dear Georgia...
You're right, I do. And I always give the same answer...and it kind of surprises people, because I think most folks are expecting me to say, "Why, Book 1, of course." But, in fact, the book I recommend if you really want to help others to understand very quickly what CwG is about is eighth book in the series, What God Wants.

This remarkable little book is a very fast read (it is one of those "Oh, I can read this on the airplane" books) and it unveils the CwG cosmology in fascinating fashion. It is intellectually rewarding, philosophically challenging, and spiritually awakening -- all three at once. It has the additional advantage of not being a "dialogue" book, but rather, a straightfoward narrative, so that the new reader does not have to confront the idea that the writer is actually claiming to be having a conversation with God.

The back cover of this small text has only ten words on it: When was the last time you read a dangerous book?

If you, yourself, have not read What God Wants, you're in for a real treat.

Now...if you're looking for a book that could be a textbook on "how life works" -- a book that tells us how to apply in a very practical, 9-to-5 way, the messages of all of the Conversations with God books, that title would absolutely be Happier Than God. This is by far the most hands-on, here-is-how-to-make-it-functional text in the CwG cosmology, turning spiritual concepts into spiritual tools for day-to-day living.

So if your friend is wanting to know, "How does this work in your life?", I would definitely give them Happier Than God. If they're more in the place of, "Wait a minute, what are we even talking about here?", then What God Wants is the book to pass on.

Thanks for asking!

Holiday Retreat

The Conversations with God
Annual Year-End Holiday Retreat

December 29-31

A very special moment for reflection on the past year and the setting of intentions for the next.

There come times in the human experience when the Heart, Mind, and Soul --- all three --- call to us at the deepest place of our being to simply stop, just for a while, and look at where we have been…and where we want to be going. The end of every calendar year is one such obvious time. This is no doubt why our annual Holiday Retreat has been the most popular program on our calendar since first offered in 1995; and this year, as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the publication of Conversations with God Book 1, we have some very special treats in store. 

In the days between Christmas and the New Year this December a handful of people from all over the world will gather in Southern Oregon for a gentle glance at the previous 12 months and all that has happened since this time last year --- with a deep exploration of its spiritual meaning --- and then for an inspiring turning to the future for the creation of a 2015 that will be their Best Year Yet upon the Earth.

Neale Donald Walsch, with inspiring poet Em Claire and heartfelt songstress Cathy Bolton, offers a wonderful opportunity for spiritual renewal as you complete one cycle and begin the next, sweetly yet powerfully guiding your Self to the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are. This is not a "workshop," with lots of dyads and breakout groups and "circle-ups"…this is a spiritual renewal retreat, consisting of nothing but quiet conversation, gentle invitation, and highly personal interactive exchange with the author of Conversations with God as he moves with you through the intimate process of your own awakening to greater clarity on what you wish to be, do, and have in your Life, using the powerful messages of the spiritual books that have changed the world.??And, after an exclusive catered dinner together, the program culminates with a wonderful New Year's Resolutions Ritual just before Midnight on December 31st, followed by dancing and celebration as participants ring in 2016 with Neale and his wife Em. Could there be a better way to round out the holiday season?

Neale's newest book.

God's Message To the World: You've Got Me All Wrong

Is it possible that everything we think we know about God, and what God wants, is wrong?

Could humanity's ideas about all this be the greatest inaccuracies . . . ever? Would it matter if they were? Neale places the question squarely before our world in a book that could move our species closer to true spiritual revolution on the Earth, changing humanity's future for the better, forever.

In direct and spiritually challenging language, Neale here exposes the many ways in which he believes that humanity completely misunderstands God. He then describes in clear terms how the world could change overnight if humans accurately comprehended what God is, what God wants, who they are in relation to that, and to each other. Neale calls this the “Missing Data” which, if ever embraced and acted on by our species, would create a spiritual revolution across the globe, bringing humanity both inner and outer peace at last.

Does anybody care why our species has been such a failure? Does anybody imagine it has not been? Does anybody want to know how this whole situation can be turned around in the virtual blink of an eye? If you do care about those questions, then you will read this book.
