Will You Take The Next Step?
Part II




A Note from Neale


My dear friends...

Conversations with God tells us that we are three-part beings, made up of Body, Mind, and Soul. In the weeks ahead here in the Bulletin, I would like to explore together the pathway to the Soul, because I get many questions about the Soul, and how to "get there." If you missed last week's opening installment in this series, I hope you will go back and read it.

We began last week by asserting that the way to the Soul is the way out of the Mind. What we need now is what philosopher/author Alan Sasha Lithman calls "a mutation of consciousness." We need to get out of our Mind and into our Soul, so that we may see what we are looking at for what it is, rather than what we have imagined it to be. We must look at life through what Ron and Mary Hulnick, in their book Loyalty to Your Soul, call "Soul-Centered Eyes." We must change everything about the way we hold, approach, and live our lives. And we must do this before everything changes us.


The first step in this process is a willingness to shift. We have to consent — as individuals, and ultimately, as a species — to undertake explorations of the realms outside the Mind...and to embrace as at least possible some of our findings there.  

The difficulty with such explorations is that all that can be found outside the realm of the Mind is Direct Experience — and Direct Experience is not confirmable, because it is not yet shareable. And we live in a culture which largely asserts that "that which cannot be shared cannot be real." So we find a way to share that which cannot be shared, in order to make it "real."

Thus was religion born. Thus does religion continue to thrive. For we are seeking to form a shared experience out of an experience that cannot be shared, but can only and always be subjective. And we are seeking to do this because we know that this is the only way we can legitimize our experience of God.


If the experience is not shared by others, then it must not be real, our species has decided — and we have embraced this notion as absolute truth. All true experience must be independently verifiable. That is the measuring stick we have chosen to use. If an experience is not independently verifiable, it is assumed to be simply the imagination of the experiencer. Or, worse yet, the lunatic ravings of a mad man.

The sole reason that my Conversations with God books gained even a small amount of acceptance is that so many people came "out of the closet" and announced that they have had the same experience

The question now before humanity is, are we willing to go to the next step? Are we willing to embrace as being at least possible some of the notions and ideas and messages of A New Theology that cannot be verified by mutual or similar experience? Are you, individually, willing to shift your "ground of being" (that is, your whole way of being in the world, your whole way of moving through life) from a Mind-based platform to a Soul-based lift-off point? Are you ready to start at a different point in your consideration of things, in your look at Life?

If you do this, you will have changed everything. You will have changed your Being, which will open you to a new place of Consciousness, which will raise your level of Awareness, which will drastically alter your Perspective, which will dramatically shift your Perception, which will monumentally realign your Beliefs, which will produce brand spanking new Behaviors — which will result in an entirely different Experience.

And we will continue this exploration in this space next week!

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:


Life begins at the end of your Comfort Zone!


Reader question:


Dear Neale,

I am once again at a crossroads in my life with no money, no home and no job and I've been here before three times. This time I am determined not to make the same choices and end up here yet again, but I am struggling.

I turned 60 in August and in September the business that I ran with my son-in-law went into liquidation leaving me owing £100,000 to the bank and meaning that I have to sell my house to pay back the money. As I also have a mortgage, there will be very little left from the sale. I care for my mother, who is blind and 87 and she is obviously worried about what will happen to us.  

I have been in a similar situation three times before and each time I have picked myself up, got a job or started a business, got another mortgage and then ended up in the same situation several years later. I know that I am creating the situation because I am not enjoying what I do and because I am taking the first thing that comes along just to pay the bills, it repeats.  

I have until March to pay the debts, so I have some time and I have been rereading CWG books and praying for help. Each time I think I have made different choices, but looking back they are the same — just a different job that I didn't enjoy any more than the last one; a means to pay the bills. I just don't know how to do it differently this time.  

My children keep asking me what I am going to do; when I am going to get a job; how am I going to support myself and my mother; where am I going to live. It makes me want to run away. I want to shout at them that I don't want A JOB I want a LIFE. I would like to move away to be nearer friends who are also changing their lives with CWG, but my daughter has asked me not to go and leave her and my grandchildren. I feel like I am being torn apart and I don't have any answers, just hundreds of questions.

I know that money isn't the answer but it sure helps! If I had a home and enough money that I didn't have to work to support us, I know exactly what my life would be — an expression of the greatest version of who I really am. I just don't know how to get there. Any help would be very greatly appreciated.

 
 

Neale Responds:


My dear friend...

I am going to make this direct and to the point, if not short and sweet.

FIRST...create or get any kind of job — indeed, the "first thing that comes along" — to bring some money flowing into your life again. Stop beating yourself up or fretting because it is not the work of your soul or something that makes you happy or causes your heart to sing. JUST CREATE INCOME. This is your particular and marvelous gift, you have shown yourself and the world that you can do this time and time again, so stop making yourself wrong about this because you think you are doing it in the "wrong way."

SECOND...understand that this work you are going to get or create is only TEMPORARY (The mistake you made in the past was that you allowed it to become permanent... and your soul didn't want it to be. That is why it always ultimately "went away.”) The purpose of this here-and-now work will be to create a financial platform upon which to build your life and from which you may embark on your soul's real agenda. Doing this work IS embarking on that agenda; it is the FIRST STEP.

I tell everyone who is unhappy in their present work to stop complaining and start looking at it in a new way. Change your perspective and see that your present means of creating income is perfect for right now, in that it is fueling the engine of the larger experience you choose to create — if, indeed, you are up to creating that. If you are not, you absolutely will be caught in a dead-end job, trapped in a prison of your own making.

Yet if you USE your present work as a TOOL in the CREATION of your most MARVELOUS TOMORROW, you will see this work in a new way: as a BLESSING and a PERFECT CIRCUMSTANCE; as an important PART OF THE PROCESS of NEW REALITY CREATION. Presently you are seeing the work you are doing as an IMPEDIMENT to that process.

It is vitally important that you CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE about this. Remember what CwG tells us:

Perspective creates perception, perception creates belief, belief creates behavior, behavior creates experience, experience creates reality — and our reality creates our perspective. It is a Circle — the Circle of Life — and everything in the circle changes when anything in the circle changes.

THIRD...put to maximum use the TIME that this work you are going to create will buy you. Use it to COME TO ABSOLUTE CLARITY about Who You Are and how you choose to manifest that in your life. Give yourself a deadline — a Date Certain — for when you will make these choices. Use the interim period to draw up a PLAN for implementation of your decisions. Have a FIRM START DATE as a part of the plan. It doesn't matter when that date is. It could be a year from now, six months from now, or whatever feels uncomfortable. Yes, I said "uncomfortable." Remember what CwG tells us:

Life begins at the end of your Comfort Zone.

The process I am outlining here encourages you to step outside of your Comfort Zone; to push yourself to new levels; to stretch beyond previous boundaries or limitations.

FOURTH...to make certain that you are "doing it differently this time," be sure that when you make the decisions regarding your long-term life goal and livelihood that you do so from a standpoint of BEINGNESS, rather than doingness. If you do not understand what I am talking about here, immediately read Bringers of the Light, a booklet that I wrote which focuses on creating Right Livelihood.

FIFTH...see if there is a way to pay back the money you lost in your last business without selling your home. I would even declare bankruptcy before I left myself homeless. In most countries the bankruptcy laws protect a person from losing their primary dwelling. There is no reason to have to be without a home for yourself and your Mom. This is a made-up crisis that can be solved.

SIXTH...the secret is not to "move away to be nearer friends," but to move within to be nearer God — the best friend you will ever have. However much time you are spending each day in meditation, double it. If you are currently spending no time, or if your meditative practice is sporadic, commit to meditating at least 15 minutes every morning. Extend the time as you can. I can think of no single device that will get you started on better footing every day than this. Then...if you wish to be closer to people who you feel can support you in living your soul's purpose, tell your children and your other family members what this is about for you, and then do it. Do not let the pleadings of others tear you apart any more. You are 60 years old and you have earned the right to do as you choose, to serve your inner self, and to "be good to You."

FINALLY....you say that if you had "enough money that I didn't have to work to support us, I know exactly what my life would be — an expression of the greatest version of who I really am..." Wow, what an interesting point of view. Are you saying that having enough money that we "don't have to work" is the only way that we can have our life be what we want our life to be???? Are you saying that not having to work for a living is the only way for life to be "an expression of the greatest vision" of who we are? If so, you've just left out 98% of the world's people.

No, no, no... the trick is not to stop working, but to stop thinking of what you are doing AS "work"... whatever  it is that you are doing. Whether it is that temporary job I talked about that bridges you from here to there, or whether it is your life vision — think of it ALL — think of ALL the activities of your life — as the present-moment expression of the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about who you are.

TURN YOUR WORK INTO YOUR JOY by seeing it as a PATH TO YOUR GREATEST EXPRESSION, revealing the Divinity that is within you. And understand that, in the end, it doesn't matter WHAT you do, it only matters how you ARE while you are doing it. Are you happy? Are you helpful? Are you compassionate, understanding, patient, kind, giving, and healing of others? Are you creative, dynamic, daring, leading? You can be all of these things, no matter what your body is doing. Are you clear about that? Do you believe that exterior circumstances create interior experiences... or that it is the other way around? I assure you that interior experiences create exterior circumstances... and so, when you experience interiorly that your present job is a "staging area," a "platform" from which you can create and express the highest and best within you, your exterior circumstances will begin to reflect that.

Good luck, and do let me know in a few months of your good fortune!

Love,

You Are Invited to:

The Conversations with God
Annual Year-End Holiday Retreat

 


December 29-31, 2018

A very special moment for reflection on the past year

and the setting of intentions for the next year


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. And this year, it is a more powerful time than ever. Look around you. Look at what is going on in your life. Then look at what is going on all over the world. When you make an assessment of all this, you will understand why Neale has created a brand new topic for this CWG retreat: DEALING WITH CHANGE; COPING WITH CALAMITY.  

This timely end-of-year retreat is designed to move you to clarity on how you may employ spiritual tools to help you mentally and emotionally cope with all that is happening around the globe — with leaders on the world stage loudly and belligerently threatening to destroy each other, with global warming whipping up storms to a level we have never seen before, and with social and political issues dividing people more profoundly and disturbingly than ever — to say nothing of the shifting conditions in our personal lives. Using the eye-opening messages of Conversations with God as a source and a reference point, these three days could bring you closer to inner peace than you have been in a very long time.

Let this be the perfect gift for you, or someone you know who is expressing worry, concern, or upset about the state of the world, or about an aspect of their personal lives.

DEALING WITH CHANGE; COPING WITH CALAMITY will help you apply the messages of CWG to life as it is showing up right now. There could be no better way to start 2019.

This is not a typical "workshop," with lots of dyads and breakout groups and "circle-ups"... This is a spiritual renewal retreat, consisting of quiet conversation, gentle spiritual invitations, and highly personal interactive exchanges 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 special messages of the spiritual books that have changed the world.

And, after a 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 2018 with Neale and his wife Em, strengthened by new decisions regarding personal choices and the creating of new inner realities in the year ahead.

DATES: Saturday, December 29th through Monday, December 31st, 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.
