A Spirituality Devoid of Faith



A Note from Neale


Hello, Everyone...

I was taught by Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross that there are Five Natural Emotions, and that these emotions are our tools — important and vital tools — to be used in the creation of our lives and the experiencing of who we really are at the highest level.

These tools are: Grief, Anger, Envy, Fear, and Love. Over the next five weeks I would like to explore these tools, one at a time. And today I would like to briefly explore the first of the Five Natural Emotions.  

Grief is a natural emotion 


It’s that part of you which allows you to say goodbye when you don’t want to say goodbye; to express — push out, propel — the sadness within you at the experience of any kind of loss. It could be the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a contact lens.

When you are allowed to express your grief, you get rid of it. Children who are allowed to be sad when they are feeling sad (it would surprise you to know that many children are not given this permission) feel very healthy around sadness when they are adults, and therefore usually move through their adult sadness very quickly.

Children who are told, “There, there, don’t cry,” (or, worse yet, are asked, “What are you crying about?” or told, “Don’t be a ‘cry baby’!”) may quite understandably have a hard time crying as adults. After all, they’ve been told all their life not to do that. So they repress their grief. And this is not a good thing to do.

Grief that is continually repressed can become chronic depression, a very unnatural emotion. This is not the same thing has grief. This is grief that has not been expressed, that is being held in. The thing about grief is that we all want to let it go. Yet the irony is that the best way to let go of grief is to express it. That is, to fully have it. And so, you let go of it by having it — which may seem counter-intuitive. Yet it is the best way to bring grief to an end.

If someone close to you is experiencing grief right now, the best gift you can give them is to let them have it. Do not try to “comfort” it away. Allow it to flow. Encourage it. Talk people into it, don’t try to talk them out of it. Speak into their grief (“This must feel awful to you right now,” “I can imagine that you must be devastated by this,” etc.), don’t try to talk all around it (“There, there…it’s going to be all right,” “He wouldn’t want you to feel this sad,” etc.)

I never did understand people who say, “Your husband, if he were here, wouldn’t want you to cry so.” Nonsense. If I die before my wife, I want her to cry. If I’m not worth a couple of good cries, what have we had here? I mean, really…

So don’t try to talk others, or yourself, out of your grief over anything. Have it. Express it fully. And that’s the way to get past it. The only way around is through, as Elisabeth used to say.

Grief, used as a tool, produces growth. We grow through grief. By watching carefully what we most deeply grieve, we come to know ourselves and what our deepest values are, as well as what we want them to be. Grief teaches us to be human, to be compassionate, to be deeply caring. It is a wonderful tool of release as well, allowing us to release negative emotions.

Feel your grief fully when you have it. Don’t try to hide it and don’t seek to sublimate it. And whatever you do, don’t try to shorten its time with you. People who tell you that “you’ve grieved long enough” are trying to make themselves more comfortable, not you. You’ve grieved “long enough” when you stop grieving. And you’ll stop grieving faster the more fully you grieve.

Okay? Got it?

Next week: Anger as a Natural Emotion.

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:


Reader question:


Dear Mr. Walsch:

I cannot tell you how profound
CwG, Book 1 is to me. I have been struggling with drug addiction on and off for about 27 years. This book gave me so much inspiration and hope helping me see why people use drugs (prescriptions in my case) in order to face the world, and find it so difficult to live life on its own terms. I'm almost 42 years old, and I just relapsed after being clean for over 60 days (which is a miracle in itself to me), and I need God's help so badly. I need His words of wisdom to give me strength. God makes choices sound so simple, which I'm sure they should be, but I sure could use some more inspiration and knowledge on that subject. I hope you can talk with Him about that in detail. I know there are a lot of people like me out here who would surely benefit from His wisdom.

Susan

 
 

Neale Responds:


As I have understood it, Blake — and as I have experienced it — "the real truth" is not something that exists absolutely and objectively, but is something that I decide, and thus create, in subjective form.

I say asparagus is wonderful, and my grandson says it is yucky. So what is "true" about asparagus? What is true is what we say is true. And so it has been throughout human history — with asparagus and everything else. And the condition we are in on our planet right now is a reflection of that. It is a reflection of our collective saying of what is true.

If we want our world to change, all we need do is change what we say is true. Or, as I have been sharing for years: re-write our Cultural Story.

If I find that my own personal truth is "hidden behind pain and denial" — and, by the way, my highest inner truth often is — then setting my denial aside to look deeper becomes "safe" only when I say it is.

In other words, Blake, there is no objective answer, no one-size-fits-all response, to the question. It is "safe" to do so now (as opposed to yesterday) because I say it is.

And what could cause me to say such a thing today, when yesterday I could not? In my case, it would have nothing to do with outside circumstances, but only be my determination, my commitment, to recreate myself anew in this Golden Moment of Now, in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever I held about Who I Am.

In other words, I find that when I commit myself once again to The Vision, and to Completion of the Journey that my Soul is taking (see The Only Thing That Matters, Hay House, 2012), I remind myself of what I have always known: that I am never not "safe," because nothing can happen to me that is not okay with me, nothing can occur that is not part of my evolutionary process, nothing can damage or destroy Who I Really Am.

I hope I can say "Thank you, God, for this wonderful life," even at the moment of my death. If I can say this in that moment — and in all the moments between now and then — I will find my safety in the assurance that All Is Well, no matter how all is proceeding.

Gratitude, for me, is the remarkable healing balm that brings me back to safety. Gratitude and love for my God.

Yours lovingly,

Short Takes

 


 


ANNOUNCING A NEW CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD FOUNDATION PROGRAM:
 

Have you been looking for a way to implement the Conversations with God messages more fully into your daily experience? Do you love the CWG books but could use some one-on-one help applying their highest guidance in your life? Would you simply like to have someone in your life to share this profound material with? Then Wisdom that Works: The CWG Online School is for you! 

Neale Donald Walsch invited Annie Sims to create this program and work with you online to assist you. Annie has personally trained with Neale since 2005. She serves as secretary/treasurer of the Conversations with God Foundation, as co-facilitator of a bi-weekly CWG Spiritual Study Group in Los Angeles, and as one of five CWG Life Coaches personally chosen by Neale. She shares in a light-hearted way many stories of how she has used the concepts to transform her life as well as many of the seemingly miraculous events she’s experienced along the way. Annie is a firm believer in how the CWG books have changed her life for the better, and she loves sharing how you too can use it.

The Wisdom that Works curriculum covers Conversations with God’s 25 core concepts in three learning levels:

Level One explores the most fundamental messages of CWG with its courses "The Basics" and "Creation and Purpose." 

Level Two expands upon them with some of the more controversial messages of CWG in "Dispelling A Few Misconceptions" and "Larger Understandings." 

Level Three encompasses some of the most advanced concepts from CWG in “The Power of Threes” and “Moving Beyond the Illusions.”

Each learning level consists of eight lessons, and each lesson is followed by Self-Reflection Questions and Action Steps. You post your answers online, then Annie posts back with feedback on your work, gently guiding you in using that lesson’s concept and fine-tuning your comprehension of it.

All of your work is done online inside the program, and you go at your own pace. The lessons are neither time nor labor intensive, yet we suggest that you do only one per week, in order to fully embody that lesson’s concept before moving on to the next one. Each level consists of eight lessons, so if you choose to do all three levels at the pace of one per week, it will take you approximately six months to complete the program. You will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Your access to the program never expires, and you are welcome to refer back to it for years to come.

You may sign up for one level at a time for a cost of $120 each. Or save 20% by signing up to take all three levels in the program, for a total cost of $288. Whether you sign up for only one level or all three, Annie will be with you every step of the way.

PRAISE FOR
WISDOM THAT WORKS ~ THE CWG ONLINE SCHOOL
:


"Wow, Annie, I was so impressed by your lessons. Congratulations to you for achieving your dreams. It's so nice to be around company that believes that dreams do come true. I found what you said really moving, uplifting and inspiring. You're like a mentor that reminds me that I, too, can live the dream. Neale could not have chosen a better person for this job."
    ~ Julia S.

"I LOVE it. You are so GOOD at this!!! LOVE the stories from your life. They make all this so REAL, so HERE AND NOW, DOWN TO EARTH. Yes!! Also, GREAT 'assignments'... YES! I LOVE IT! Whew!"

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.

This Flex-Price Plan is our response to the economic conditions that have affected many people around the world. We know that everyone will be fair in determining what payment is appropriate for them. Please keep in mind that your personal travel, food and lodging expenses must be paid by you.

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.

Call them to arrange pick up: 541-770-1234.

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.
