Bulletin #834


January 4, 2019

Happy 2019

A Note from Neale

In the last issue of this Bulletin, published just before New Year's Eve, I made the point that we humans living in the 21st century are very lucky. We have achieved a very high level of Consciousness. It has taken hundreds and thousands of years for our species to accomplish this, and those of us living today are the beneficiaries of all that evolutionary work.

We are conscious of ourselves, and we are conscious of the fact that we are conscious. As a species that had achieved self-consciousness, we have stepped into a grander and grander awareness of ourselves and of our relationship to all of Life. The opportunity of each individual now is to expand personal awareness further and further, until Complete Awareness has been achieved.

This expansion of Awareness is a process in which individuals personally and consciously and intentionally engage. It is not something that occurs by happenstance, except in very rare instances. There are those who have had "lightening bolt experiences" in which they have achieved Total Awareness instantaneously. But for most of us, the journey is somewhat different — and somewhat longer.

Let us begin, in this first Bulletin issue of 2019, a discussion of The Journey to Awareness. We took last week off as our holiday after the annual CwG Christmas Eve Candle light service, but we are back in the saddle again, and we begin our issues for this New Year with a most intriguing topic.

Before we can talk about The Journey to Awareness, we need must first explore what the word even means.

The dictionary defines awareness as "having knowledge or perception of a situation or fact; concerned and well-informed about a particular situation or development."

That is close to how I use the word, but in metaphysics I am going to define awareness as "A state of consciousness reflecting the understanding of the process of Life, as well as the level of knowing of the true identity of an individual human being, that a particular person has achieved."

Awareness is something we achieve. It is not something that can be given to us by another — although it is true that others can point the way to it for us. There are as many levels of awareness as there are human beings, as it is a very individual thing, just as is everything else about people.

The level of one's awareness of how life works and of who we really are is reflected in and indicted by the thoughts, choices, actions, and decisions that mark the day-to-day expressions of experiences of one's life.

Most people are not aware that life is not at all what it appears to be, and has nothing to do with what is going on exteriorly. That is, it is not about the exterior events that are occurring — although the exterior events that are occurring are a reflection of what life is about for each individual.

Most people live from the outside in, rather than from the inside out. In this, they have it backwards. They are living life as a reaction rather than as a creation. The difficulty with this is that each reaction becomes the next creation, and so, the very thing we are reacting to becomes the very thing we next create, in nearly every case.

This explains why people experience the same challenges over and over again in relationship, in occupations, in health, in parenting, in spiritual development, and in all areas of life. They seem to be living out "patterns" — and, indeed, they are, having "designed" their next exterior circumstance based on their reaction to their last most recent exterior circumstance.

Only those who have learned to Go Within and to live an exterior circumstance as an interior event have found a way to break the chain and stop the wheel from going around and around and around again.

The Journey to Awareness is a journey to the center of our being; it is a walking away from the exterior phenomena of life, almost an ignoring of them, in preference to the interior experience that one is directing and creating.

And we will explore this further in our next issue here.

Letters to Neale:

What is this thing called Karma?

Reader question:

Hi, Mr. Walsch,

I have read and been taught by metaphysical teachers that Karma plays a large part in the life we choose and the physical body we have chosen to live and experience our lessons through. Sometimes people are born blind or without limbs or other disfigurements because of some act they have done in the past to others to cause them to be blinded or lose limbs etc.

God says people act and do the things they do based on their view of their world, so is there no right or wrong with regard to actions? How can it only be a case of what works and what doesn't? Is there no payment for such actions?  

What about Hitler or other leaders who have done incredibly cruel and inhumane things to their fellow human beings? Or people who batter other people, or murder wives and children? Do they just pass from their bodies, join the All that is, and that's it???  

It sounds as though no one does anything wrong, given their view of the world. How does it all even out? Can anyone do anything to anybody else without some form of 'punishment' or retribution?  

And I use those words because I can't think of any other words right now. I probably should pose the question as: can anyone do anything to anyone without some form of lessons in life to be learned? I thank you for taking the time to read my letter to you and am looking forward to a response.

With love and light,



Neale Responds:

Dear Rachel,

You have asked a number of very important questions. They are important because one's whole theology rests on the answers.

Rachel, one either believes in a damning, condemning, punishing God, or one doesn't. I do not.

I do not believe in that kind of God because God himself told me that these ideas are false. She said that they are among the Ten Illusions of Humans. These illusions are discussed with very wonderful clarity in Communion with God, a book that I highly recommend that you read.

Two of the Ten Illusions of Humans are:

        Judgment exists.

        Condemnation exists.

These ideas are man-made. No such constructions exist in the mind of God. That is because these ideas about God arise out of a basic misunderstanding found in an earlier idea about God, which is that God is separate from us. (Disunity exists.)

If God was not separate from us, God could not judge us because, of course, God would be judging herself. If God was not separate from us, God could not condemn us, because, again, God would be condemning himself.

Even if God were separate from us, God would have no reason to punish us unless there was something specific that God demanded that we do or do not do. This, too, is an illusion. (Requirement exists.)

The last illusion is based on an even earlier idea that the reason God has placed requirements on us is that God needs something from us in order to be happy. (Need exists.)

Nothing could be further from the truth. God requires nothing of us. For more on this concept, you may find it wonderful to re-read The New Revelations. This is a very important book in the With God series, in my view. It should be read by everyone. And you may wish to read it again, because it makes it very clear that God needs nothing from humanity. A "needy" God is just not part of the Cosmic Reality.

I realize that it is difficult for many people to embrace the idea of a God who needs nothing from us and wants nothing from us, but that is because they insist on seeing God as a separate being having human qualities. A being not only separate from us, but also a being who can actually experience being unhappy, and who becomes unhappy if he doesn't get what he wants.

Such a God is not a God at all, but a mere tiny and limited version of the Creator of the Universe and the Source of All Life. If that is the limit of our imagination about God, I would say that we have a long way to go before we can claim to truly understand who and what God is.

You ask, Rachel, about karma. Yes, God has spoken of karma in the CwG series of books. God says that karma as we classically understand it does not exist. That is, there is not in place in God's kingdom a system of Reward and Punishment that plays out its effects as Conditions of our Life from one lifetime to the next.

What there IS is a system called, in human terms, the Cosmic Wheel. This is a simple name given to the Process of Life itself. It is meant to indicate that all of Life is a cycle, or a wheel, on which we find and place ourselves. The purpose of going "round and round" on the wheel is to experience and re-experience the entire Life cycle, thus to know and create again and again Who You Really Are. For there is no greater joy and no greater glory and no greater wonder, and thus, no greater pleasure for God.

Life is God's great pleasure.

You have spoken of the cruel actions people take in life, and have asked, "How can it only be a case of what works and what doesn't? Is there no payment for such actions? What about Hitler or other leaders who have done incredibly cruel and inhumane things to their fellow human beings? Or people who batter other people, or murder wives and children? Do they just pass from their bodies, join the All that is, and that's it???"

CwG says that Hitler went to heaven. This does not mean that the soul of Hitler did not experience the consequence of Hitler's actions. It does mean that those consequences, once experienced, produce growth, not eternal punishment — and growth is the highest outcome of Life itself. It is, in short, heaven.

There is no punishment in God's kingdom, but there are consequences. That is, things that happen as a result of other things. But this system is not a process of "pay back" of "karmic debt." It is simply the way the process of Life Itself works. Outcomes are the result of out puts.

Rachel, you have asked, "Can anyone do anything to anyone without some form of lessons in life to be learned?" CwG indicates that in life, there is nothing to be learned. There is only a process of remembering. It is through remembering that we reclaim, and become once again, Who We Really Are.

At the moment of our death, we experience what Eastern mystics call kama loca. This is a movement of the soul through every moment of the life just lived, but from the viewpoint of every person who was impacted or affected by that soul's choices and decisions and actions. In other words, we have the opportunity to experience how other people experienced us.

From this will come enormous growth. And growth is both the purpose and the process of Life.

With love,

Short Takes


CWG on Relationships

March 22-24, 2019

A 3-day exploration of the most meaningful aspect of every life
with CWG messenger Neale Donald Walsch

"There is no more important aspect of anyone's life than the human interaction we call 'relationship.' Without an important relationship with something or someone, we are nothing." This statement comes directly out of the Conversations with God dialogue. It is only through our relationship with those we love — including, hopefully, ourselves — that we can express and experience the wondrous joy of life.

Neale Donald Walsch is once again presenting a full-scale spiritual renewal retreat focused specifically on the subject of relationship. He is doing so again now, in response to the many requests he has received from CWG readers to share his understanding of how the messages of these extraordinary dialogues may be effectively applied to what can be for many among the most challenging experiences in life: their relationships with their Significant Other, with their children and other family members, and even with their bosses or colleagues at work.

Neale will work in a direct and very personal way to help members of the group deal in a new way with whatever frustrations or circumstances that may now be facing them — as well as to create the relationship of which every person dreams, and how to transform a present relationship into a joyous, fulfilling, and rewarding experience. You're invited to join us for three days and evenings that could alter your experience of relationship forever for the better.

DATES: Friday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 24th, 2019.

We can offer these flex-pricing options for our programs, but we cannot, of course, ask airlines, hotels, and restaurants to offer you their services for greatly reduced prices, or for free.

SCHOLARSHIPS: By instituting the Flex-Pricing Options we have eliminated the need to offer partial scholarships, because a person can now self select an appropriate price option that is a fraction of the full ticket value. For those who feel they still require a "full ride" scholarship, we have instituted a special wait list to our Annual No Fee retreat. Those who sign up for this wait list will receive the No Fee Retreat announcement email 24 hours before the general public, thus giving this wait list a chance to register before this fast-filling retreat hits capacity (which it typically does in 24-36 hours). You can join that wait list HERE.

LOCATION: The event is held in Medford, Oregon, at the Rogue Regency Inn & Suites. Hotel accommodations are not included in the regular price of the conference registration. There are rooms available in the facility where the retreat is taking place (the Rogue Regency Inn & Suites) at the discounted rate of $89/night for single or double occupancy.

PROGRAM AGENDA: Times are approximate. This is a rough schedule and subject to change.

PLEASE NOTE: We gently ask that persons attending this retreat plan to attend every session from beginning to end, leaving the room only during regular break and meal times.  Persons who miss an entire session of the retreat will miss so much of its content that it will be extremely difficult to reenter the program beneficially.  Therefore, if your health circumstance makes it not possible for you to be in the room for three-hour sessions, this retreat may be too rigorous for you.

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.
