Daily Thought

 

If you are being sad, and you think positive, joyful thoughts, you will very easily `think your way` to being happy. You can move to any state of being you wish at any moment, instantly, by simply knowing it to be so, and declaring it to be so.

When All That's Left Is God



A Note from Neale


My Dear Friends...

I know I don't need to tell you that just ten days from today is Christmas Eve — a very happy time of year for so many people. And yet, for many others, who have suffered deep loss or who are facing very large challenges during these says, the Holiday Season can be a very difficult time... and understandably so. For some people, everything that was important to them has been taken away...

For all of us there comes a time when all that's left is God...

It happens in most people's lives more than once. It is that moment when you feel totally and completely isolated. It's that time when you feel, not that no one is hearing you, but that there is no one to hear you. You are really all alone. There is no one else, even when there is someone else in the room. There is nothing more, even when there is plenty more all around. There is only you, even when the world surrounds you. Perhaps especially when the world surrounds you, there is only you.

Yes, there comes a time when all that's left is God. Nothing else matters. Nothing else has any meaning. Nothing else calls to you, magnetizes you, demands your attention — or is even worthy of it.

This time comes, it seems to me, either when you have nothing or when you have everything. This moment arrives when everything else has been taken from you and there is nothing left, or when everything has been given to you and there is nothing more you could possibly want.

When this moment arrives, it is a great relief. It is a release, a letting go. And yet, for many of us, there is still a tiny part of our being that yearns for the single thing that so many of us have never had: complete acceptance and unconditional love.

Somebody love me just the way I am.

We have not been able to find that in another. We thought we could find it in another, we hoped that we could find it in another, but we cannot. We cannot even find it in ourselves. And because we cannot find it in ourselves, we cannot give it to another — and that is why we cannot find it there. For we cannot find anywhere what we have not placed anywhere, and we have not placed complete acceptance and unconditional love anywhere. We cannot even be okay with the weather, for goodness sake. We can find something to complain about around everything.

And so, we seek what is not there, for everything we seek to find in life must have been placed there by us. If we have not placed it, we cannot find it. What we do not place into life, we do not find, because we are the Only Source There Is.

If we cannot find forgiveness in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. If we cannot find compassion in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. If we cannot find tolerance in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. If we cannot find mercy in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. If we cannot find peace in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. If we cannot find acceptance in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there. And if we cannot find love in our lives, it is because we have not placed it there.

All these things we must place into Life. First, into our own life, then into the life of another. Or, for some, it is the other way around. I want to say for most of us it is the other way around. For most of us, it is nearly impossible to give ourselves what we most want to receive: forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love.

Most of us cannot give these things to ourselves because we know too much about ourselves. We think ourselves to be unworthy of these things. We imagine ourselves to be something other than what we really are. We cannot see the Divinity that Divinity Itself has placed in us. We cannot see the Innocence. We cannot see the Perfection in our imperfection.

Because we cannot see these things in ourselves, we cannot give ourselves what we most want to receive. Yet, because we are not totally blind to what is good and worthy in the world, we are often able to see these things in others. We can often see Divinity in others. We can often see Innocence in others. We can often even see Perfection in the imperfection of others. And so we can give others forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love. We can, but the question is, will we?

Too often, we do not. Because of our own wounds, we cannot heal the wounds of others. And so we deny our world the things our world needs the most. We deny our world forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love. And when we deny these to our world, we deny these to ourselves — for what we have not placed into the world, we cannot receive from the world. Again, let the New Golden Rule be repeated:

What we have not placed into the world,
we cannot receive from the world.

There comes a time when we realize that we are the Only Source There Is. No one is going to give to us or to the world what we are unable to give to the world, and thus to ourselves. Not for very long.

The first place we find this out is in relationship with another. What we are unable or unwilling to give to another, we will not receive from the other. Not for very long. If we cannot give the person across the room forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love... we cannot look to the person across the room to give these things to us. For they only have to give what we have given them.

We imagine in relationship that the other person has what we do not have, and therefore, that they can supply it to us. This is the great illusion. This is a great mistake. This is the great misunderstanding. And this is the reason why so many relationships fail. We imagine that the other is going to supply us with forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love. We imagine that the other is going to supply us what we cannot supply to them, and what we cannot even give to ourselves. And then we become angry with the other. And then we become angry with ourselves. And then...

... we realize that there's nothing left but God. We turn, then, to God. Please God, give me forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, mercy, peace, acceptance, and love. Please give it to me, so that I may give it to others.

The world is rapidly approaching this turning point. We are coming to understand that God is the Only and Original Source. Now all that we need to do is understand, as well, that there is no separation between God and us. When we grasp at last this foundational understanding, when we embrace, finally, this basic truth, we will change ourselves, change our relationships, and change the world.

Until then, we will not. And we will wait for that moment when we realize... that there's nothing left but God. Hopefully, we will arrive at that moment before we create it... in the most crude of ways possible: by destroying everything else until there is nothing left. By destroying our relationship until there is nothing left. By destroying our world until there is nothing left. By destroying ourselves until there is nothing left.

Conversations with God contains a startling statement. It is something I've never forgotten. God said, "It is not necessary to go through hell in order to get to heaven." I invite us all to remember that on this day. I invite us all to embrace a new notion about ourselves and about life: not that there's nothing left but God, but that there's nothing but God.

When we see God in every other person and in every other thing, then we will have dropped our illusions, we will have stepped aside from our childish imaginings, and we will treat everything and everyone as if it, she, or he is Divine. And if you don't think that will change your life and your world, think again. This is the Pathway to the Soul.

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:


Will My Loving Cat Remember Me When I Die?


Reader question:


Dear Neale...I have had depression all my life. Now I must do the unthinkable for my cat. Put him to sleep. Will he remember me when we meet again? I am also considering suicide since I don't want to be without him.

 
 

Neale Responds:


Dear Friend...Committing suicide because you do not want to be without your cat is the last thing that the spirit which is your cat would want you to do. It is the last thing that the spirit which is LIFE would want you to do. Your physical life is a gift, designed to be used for the wonderful purpose of experiencing the most wonderful spiritual truth about yourself — which is the fact of your own divinity. HOME WITH GOD tells us that committing suicide does nothing to solve our present earthly problems, because the first thing we do when we get to the "other side" is decide to come right back into physical life once again, facing the same set of circumstances and conditions that drove us to commit suicide.

The purpose of life is to use these circumstances and conditions, not avoid them. There are cures for depression — both spiritual and physical remedies that can be very helpful in your life. I urge you to take advantage of them. If you would like more spiritual insight into suicide — and, for that matter, the reasons for all of life — you may wish to read HOME WITH GOD. It is a most extraordinary book.

My answer to your specific question is that yes, I believe that your cat, and every living thing that has loved us, will remember us when we meet again. I send you love and encouragement. 

Thank you for writing to me,

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE HERE!!!

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.
