This is Part Seven of a multi-part series by Neale... Read last week’s Part Six here.


A Note from Neale...


My dear friends...

If we think that humanity is headed in the wrong direction — indeed, in a dangerous direction — the first thing we must do is marshall all of our communications resources to convince the largest number of us (and, of course, our leaders) that humanity has a problem.

The reason we are headed in such a dangerous direction is that, like ostriches, many humans have placed their heads in the sand, allowing them to argue that we don’t have that much of a problem, if people would just stop agitating to change things. But people are agitated for a reason. The fact is that none of the systems we have put into place to create a better life for all of us on this planet have produced the outcome for which they were designed.

It’s worse than that. They’ve actually produced exactly the opposite. And that’s the problem.

Our political systems — created to produce safety and security for the world’s people — have produced exactly the opposite: extensive disagreement and wholesale disarray.

Our economic systems — created to produce opportunity and sufficiency for all — have produced exactly the opposite: increasing poverty and massive economic inequality, with a handful of the world’s richest people holding more wealth than 3.5 billion...that’s half the planet’s population...combined.

Our ecological systems — created to help us produce a sustainable lifestyle — have been abused so much that they are now generating exactly the opposite: environmental disasters right and left.

Our educational systems — created to lift higher and higher the awareness level and the philosophical openness of the planet’s population — have produced exactly the opposite: a drop in global awareness and our sensitivity to each other that each year sinks our intellectual and philosophical common denominator lower and lower.

Our health care systems — created in hopes of making modern medical miracles available to an increasingly higher percentage of people — have produced exactly the opposite: doing little to eliminate inequality of access to the best medicines and health care services, and actually providing top level medical services each year to a lower percentage of the world’s people.

Our social systems — created to inspire the joy of community and sponsor harmony among a divergent population — have produced exactly the opposite: discordance, disparity, prejudice, and despair...and, far too often, plain and simple injustice.

And, saddest and most dysfunctional of all...our spiritual systems — created to produce a greater closeness to God, and so, to each other — have produced exactly the opposite: bitter righteousness, shocking intolerance, widespread anger, deep-seated hatred, and self-justified violence.

What gives here? What's going on with the human race that it cannot see itself even as it takes it head out of the sand and looks at itself? Where is humanity's blind spot?

Might it be time to ask: “Could there be something we don't fully understand here about Life, the understanding of which could change everything?”

That’s the key question. And that’s the question that Conversations with God: Book 4 ~ Awaken the Species puts before the house: Is it possible, just possible, that there is something we don’t fully understand here about ourselves, about Life...and yes, even about God...the understanding of which would change everything?

And what CWG suggests is that the answer is yes. Resoundingly, yes.

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:


All acts are acts of love


Reader question:


Dear Neale...Three children probably with teen thoughts of the mall, new shoes, the boy they have a crush on, maybe their prom or career were about to enter a decade of abuse at 16, 14 and 21. One had a son born in captivity. Three brothers allegedly participated and are charged. Can we blame the people of Cleveland, like some of the German people of Hitler’s era, for being complicit? We cannot. And you are saying there is no evil in the world? That these are "Wailings of deep love", as you have written? You'd give these brothers a hug? I'd sure give the neighbor who released them a hug, and I'm not the huggy type! If it was your child, you'd trust the universe to be unfolding as it should? Maybe there's more. Maybe one stayed calm, cool, and collected to land the plane in the Hudson, so to speak, for the best possible outcome. But man...

 
 

Neale Responds


I understand, my friend, how you could feel this way in the aftermath of the news from Cleveland. You are responding as any perfectly normal human being would. Yet Life invites us to respond not in a "normal" way, but in a "natural" way. What is "normal" for human beings may not be "natural" to them, if they moved in their State of Mind to their Most Natural Selves.

I understand the difficulty of embracing the notion that all human acts are acts of love, however maligned and distorted they may be, but that does not make the statement any less true.

All people act out of desire, and desire is the outgrowth of our love for something, whatever it might be. People with damaged minds — mental and emotional capacities that have been injured earlier in their lives, or diminished capacities with which they have been born — often hold and express deeply distorted desires.

Even humanity's legal system understands this, which is why it can judge certain people "innocent by reason of insanity."

To correct your statement above, three brothers have not, in fact, been charged, but only one man. His brothers have been released without any charges placed against them. But that is a small detail. Your larger point is understood. Whether it was one man perpetrating this crime or three, your point is the same: Would I give this man a hug? 

Hmmm...Pope John Paul, after he was released from the hospital following recovery from a severe gunshot wound, went to the prison of the man who shot and hoped to kill him, and gave him not only a hug, but his papal blessing. 

I guess it could be said that the Pope was not an ordinary man — but is this not what Life calls us all to be? — not "ordinary"?

We cannot "blame" the people of Cleveland for thinking anything in particular, because "blame" is not part of the Holy Experience. We can understand why the people of Cleveland might feel a certain way. But the real question here is: What is God's reaction, response, and position vis-a-vis what this man has allegedly done? Do you think that God forgives, or condemns? 

Conversations with God says: "Hitler went to heaven." How is this possible? Can it be true? Is it possible that God forgives the worst imaginable offense? On the other hand, is it possible that no matter what one does or says, no matter how sorrowful or regretful one is, there are certain offenses God will never, ever forgive, under any circumstances?

These are not unimportant questions, for they relate directly to your commentary above.

Does outrage trump compassion for the mentally warped? Does anger trump mercy? Does righteousness trump forgiveness every time?

Let these be our questions for the day.

I know about the place in which I live. And in that place, Forgiveness itself is trumped by Understanding, making Forgiveness itself unnecessary.

I realize that it is very challenging, very difficult, to live in this place, to come from this place. I use Pope John Paul, the Vicar of Christ — and, in fact, Christ himself — as my models here. Not that I am a practicing Catholic. But it doesn't take me long to recognize true holiness when I see it, in any man. That is the kind of holiness to which I aspire.

Have I made it? Am I there? No. Far from it. But that is the model to which I aspire. I invite you to consider it as well.

I send you love and every good thought.

Yours in service,

Short Takes

The Home with God Retreat

Sept 21 - 23, 2018

Nothing has riveted humanity's interest more, nor has anything been more frightening or awe-inspiring, than the finality of death. For many, death has been a closed-door subject. Perhaps for most. Certainly there is a denial of death in our culture. Ironically, this denial may well arise out of a deep, cellular understanding of what is true — that death as a finality of life simply does not exist. Yet humanity as a whole does not seem to have arrived at a place where it fully comprehends death and what the experience really is.


The fears and questions that so many people hold around death were explored and resolved in Neale Donald Walsch's Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com #1 bestselling book, Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends. And now — in response to many requests — Neale has created a special retreat based on the remarkable insights of this closing dialogue with God.  

Over the course of 3 days, Neale will work with a small group to examine end-of-life questions that everyone longs to have answered. The insights from his conversation with God uplift us all, wiping away our fears and inviting us to celebrate, not mourn, every person's Continuation Day.

In 1 Corinthians, Chapter 15, verses 55-57 we read: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" The Home with God Retreat asks precisely the same question. The answers it provides, however, may be considerably less traditional than those found in the many Scriptures of our species. Be careful. This September offering from Neale Donald Walsch could change your ideas about death (and life) forever.


DATES: Friday, September 21st through Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Neale's newest book:


Conversations with God:
Book 4 ~ Awaken the Species


We’re in Trouble. But There Is Help... If We Listen.

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

In the middle of the night on August 2, 2016, Neale Donald Walsch found himself drawn into a new and totally unexpected dialogue with God in which he suddenly faced two questions:

Is the human race being offered help by Highly Evolved Beings from Another Dimension?

Is there a key role that humans are being invited to play in advancing their own evolution by joining in a mutual mission to assist the planet during the critical times ahead?

He was told that the answer to both questions is yes.

Then he was given 16 specific examples of how Highly Evolved Beings respond to life differently than humans do―and how adopting even a few of those behaviors could change the course of world history for the better forever.

That information makes up the body of this work. 

A striking invitation to every reader sets the stage for the extraordinary explorations that follow. Picking up where Book 3 in the Conversations with God Trilogy series left off, the revelations about Highly Evolved Beings and about how ordinary humans can answer the call to help awaken the species on Earth will breathtakingly expand your view of both your personal and your collective future.

Which is exactly what the dialogue was intended to do.
