A Note from Neale...

My dear Friends,

So here we go again. Here we are once more, at the Starting Gate on a New Year. Here we stand even as we have stood before at the dawn of another Life Cycle. And these days, these times, will go by as fast as the last year has flown. Before we know it, it will be January two-thousand-seventeen. A whole year will have passed — again.

So what can we do in this blink-of-an-eye that we call a year? What can we be in this blink-of-an-eye we call a life? That is the question that Life Itself places before us. And we don’t have that much time left in which to answer it. It is as my wonderful life companion and wife, American poet Em Claire, wrote in her work entitled Precious Occurrence.

I am a precious occurrence,

and I don’t have long.

We are a precious occurrence.

And as long as we think we have,

we don’t have long.

Too much time is being spent


from face to face

asking, “What is my name?”

If you don’t yet know it,

or if you’ve forgotten,

then become still, go within

and answer it.

You are a Precious Occurrence:

Tell Us your name.

(From the volume Home Remembers Me

Copyright © 2013 by Em Claire)

I have learned across the span of my 72 twelve-month cycles on this planet that every year can seem like a tiny moment — and every tiny moment can seem like a year. How I experience Time depends on what I am doing with it.

I can pack more meaning, more of what is truly important in life, in five minutes or five hours of intentioned, focused activity than I can in five days or five weeks of lollygagging around. All of us have had this experience. All of us know exactly what I am talking about.

The trick, then, to making 2016 meaningful will be to make it purposeful. And the trick to making it purposeful will be to decide on your purpose for every moment ahead of time.

As I said — and I can guarantee this — 2016 will go by so fast, you won’t even know what happened. Not, that is, unless you decide right now, ahead of time, what you want to have happen. And why.

That is the value of New Year’s resolutions. They help us to become aware of why we want these next 12 months to be visited upon us, of how we want these next 52 weeks to be used, of where we want these next 330+ days to take us, of what we want these next 8,000+ hours to produce, of whether we want these next 480,000+ minutes to add anything of lasting value and spiritual importance to our lives and to the lives of others.

We have something on the order of 28 million seconds that will be gifted to us by life in these upcoming minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months. Which of these seconds will be spend on things that don’t matter, and thus squandered, and which will be devoted to the Agenda of the Soul, and thus most valuably and wondrously and Divinely used will be up to you — and is being decided by you even now; even in the moment that you are reading this.

What will you spend your time on in 2016? And why?

I want to offer one of the most important books I have even read on this subject. It is titled The Only Thing That Matters. Its begins with this:

Dear Companion on the Journey: It is wonderful that you have come here.

There is something you wish to know and something you wish to do, and Life understands this. That is why you are reading this.

Here is what you wish to know…

98% of the world’s people

are spending 98% of their time

on things that don’t matter.

You have been part of that 98%. Now you are no longer. From this day forward you choose to spend your time on The Only Thing That Matters. The question is, what is that?

Here is what you wish to do…

Find your answer to that question.

This requires a deep exploration of the Self. You are in the right place for such an important and remarkable undertaking. Trust that. If you weren’t in the right place to find your answer, you would not be here. Do not think you have come to this book by chance.

Do not think that.

Think this: My Soul knows exactly what it is doing. 

Also, think this: My Soul already knows what really matters.

So it is not a question of “finding” that answer, it is a question of remembering. It is not a process of discovery, it is a process of recovery. This data does not have to be researched, it merely has to be retrieved.


And the book goes on from there. I commend it to your reading. Especially and particularly at this moment when the New Year is beginning, I invite you to explore this book’s contents. They can change your life.  If you have an interest, you may find it here.

In the meantime, as you step off into another 12-month Cycle of Life, may God’s blessings be experienced by you and flow through you all the months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds ahead. May Time be simply a measure of how much Divinity has been expressed in this Universe through the Individuation known as You.

With Love,

Letters to Neale:

Dear Neale, I just finished reading Book 3. Wow! This is the best book of all! The best part was the last fifth of the book, which talked about HEBs. Do you really believe that there are such things? Will we ever be able to have a life such as the ones they live?

Eleanore, Seattle, WA.



Neale Responds

Dear Eleanore, perhaps we should explain, for those who haven't yet read the book, what "HEBs" are.

The word HEB an abbreviation for "Highly Evolved Being." The final pages of the book are devoted to questions and answers about how life is lived in the highly evolved societies of the universe. And yes, Eleanore, I believe that such societies exist, and I believe that human beings will one day produce such a society on Earth. We are not there yet, however. In fact, as the book itself says, it is the mark of a primitive society to imagine itself to be highly evolved. That describes human society to a "T".

Right now, we are killing each other to resolve our differences, and that is a very primitive behavior. Right now, we are killing others to punish them for killing others, and that is a very primitive behavior.

Right now, we are eating the flesh of dead animals, and that is a very primitive behavior. Right now, we are smoking known carcinogens, and that is a very primitive behavior. Right now we are drinking known mind-deadeners, and that, too, is a very primitive behavior.

Right now, we are living what Book 3 calls a "cultural myth" of survival of the fittest, and we have allowed ourselves to adopt a primary belief in the inherent evilness of Humans. Yet God tells us that we are not inherently evil, but reflections of the Divine, and that "survival of the fittest" is a cultural imperative which could only be adopted by a race of beings who did not understand that We Are All One.

This is something that we, Eleanore, do not understand. If we did, most of the problems of the world would be solved tomorrow. Yet we are moving closer, ever closer, to this understanding. 

Many blessings,

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.
