The Great Principles of Life

A Note from Neale

Hello, Everyone...

I have received quite a few requests for topics to discus in the Weekly Bulletin and one that kept reoccurring over and over again in your requests was The Law of Attraction. "Please, Neale, could you explain how the principle of 'Attraction' works, from the CWG point of view?" one letter said. "Does Conversations with God agree with The Secret?"

The answer is, well...yes and no. There is truth to the Law of Attraction as it is discussed in the movie and the book, The Secret, but there is more to it than that. I had a problem with The Secret in that it did not explain in any clear or compelling way the role that God plays in the Law of Attraction. In fact, the word "God" was not even mentioned in the film until around 3 minutes before the end of the movie – and then in only a very brief, cursory way.

So let me now contextualize this business of "attraction" with the CWG framework — which, as you know, is all about "God," and God's role in our life.

For this exploration I will be turning to the remarkable CWG book, Happier Than God. It says...

The Energy of Attraction is part of a larger system of cause-and-effect in the Universe. Talking about "attraction" as if it were a law unto itself is a little like talking about the law of gravity without discussing the physics explaining what gravity does, and why. Okay, so a thing drops. So what...?

Let us look, then, and look deeply, at the great principles of life.

Life expresses itself through:

1. The Energy of Attraction, which gives you power.

2. The Law of Opposites, which gives you opportunity.

3. The Gift of Wisdom, which gives you discernment.

4. The Joy of Wonder, which gives you imagination.


5. The Presence of Cycles, which gives you eternity.

This larger system regulates the Process of Personal Creation — or what The Secret calls The Law of Attraction. You might even call this Larger System and this process that regulates the law, "God."

This is a new thought to many people. Invite yourself to explore this idea, just for now. Could "God" really be, after all is said and done, a process? And could that process by the experience called Life? Is the Process of Personal Creation simply the playing out of life as it naturally expresses?

Life, I have come to understand, is God. It is God being God, and becoming what God is next going to Be. This is a complex and extraordinary system that includes a Process that produces an Expression called life.

This system is a circle. Imagine this circle in your mind. On this circle, life's process produces life's expression, life's expression creates life's experience, and life's experience creates life's process. One thing leads to another, which leads to another, which leads to another, in a never-ending cycle. It is all One.

Life as it is created is the process, life as it appears is the expression, and life as it affects us is the experience. How it affects us is determined by us — and this is not something that is understood by most people.

The eternal cycle of process/expression/experience is Divinity Itself. It is God, godding.

This is the manifestation of the Presence of Cycles. All things respond to this presence. All things exist in cycles. All things have their being within the system — and there is nothing outside of that system.

Where 'Attraction' comes in

Attraction is part of this system, as are the other great Principles of Life. Conscious use of the Principles that are the foundation of the Process of Personal Creation produces an Expression of life that leads to the Experience of Divinity.

Are you tracking me here? Stay close to me. Keep tracking. Re-read a few words if you wish to. Keep tracking.

Now...just as physics explains and controls the physical aspects and elements of our lives, so, too, do metaphysics explain and control the larger-than-physical aspects and elements of our lives.

Attraction is part of those metaphysics. It is an energy magnet. It pulls to itself everything like itself. It obeys, absolutely, the principle: Like Attracts Like.

This energy magnet, this Power from God, is being used by us in the Process of Personal Creation — and it is being used all the time, whether we are aware of it or not, whether we acknowledge it or not.

So now, when discussing our own power to produce our own reality, we never again have to ask, "Where is God in all of this?"

Now we know.

Next week, Conscious vs Unconscious Choice. Are we creating things without knowing it??? See you then!

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:

Reader question:

Dear Neale:

Would you please clarify something I am confused about? Tithing. I tithed for years when I was in a fundamentalist church, so I know what it means. For the past year I have been giving away at least ten percent of my gross income, most of it to sources of spiritual growth. So many different things I've read have been consistent about the importance of putting back at least ten percent into the universe, but there seems to be no consensus about where to give it.

You have also talked about being the source of what we choose to experience more of. So, if I desire more money in my life, I need to give to those who have less. Does this come out of my tithe, or is it extra? I am willing to contribute to Habitat for Humanity, because I wish to own a house. Again, should this be out of my tithe, or above it? <

Also, if I wish to own a house, and give thanks that a house is coming into my life, how specific must I be about what I would like? Do specifications limit God? Do I assume God knows what is best for me? Is vagueness usable by God/the Universe? Again, I get different messages from different places.

God bless you, Neale!
Brenda, CA


Neale Responds:

My Dear Brenda,

God bless you, too! You know, you ask some of the most important questions dealing with the practical application in day-to-day life of the highest spiritual laws.

First, about tithing. The reason we tithe is as a demonstration. By tithing we systematically demonstrate the truth which we hold about money, just as our whole life is a demonstration of our truths about everything. The only people who tithe, who routinely give money away to others, are people who are very clear that there is more where that came from. Out of this clarity arises the demonstration, and out of this demonstration arises the precise experience of that about which one is clear.

Of course, we are right back to that age old question: which comes first, the chicken or the egg? In the case of the universal laws, or what I call the metaphysical principles, the question is answerable. Demonstration always precedes experience. That is, you will experience what you demonstrate.

This is why I say, "That which you wish for yourself, give away to another." But there is a trap here. If you are doing something in order to produce a result (for instance, tithing in order to bring more money into your life), then you will not produce the result, and you may as well give it up before you start.

The reason this is so is that your very reason for undertaking the demonstration says a lie about you: namely, that you do not have all that you wish right now, and need or want more. That underlying truth, what CwG, Book 1 calls your "sponsoring thought," is what produces your reality. So no matter how much you give, you will experience not having "enough" and "wanting more."

On the other hand, If you are doing something as a demonstration that the result has already been produced (for instance, tithing ten percent of your income each week out of your deep sense of knowing that there is always enough for you to share, that there is "more where that came from"), then you will have larger and larger experiences of this truth.

Remember, you are not producing the truth, you are recognizing it. Do you see? Do you get It?

There is no "rule" in the universe about the level at which one must demonstrate In order to experience a universal truth. So your question about the amount of your financial contributions back to the universe has no answer. In my own life, I just give wherever and whenever it feels comfortable and true to myself to do so. I do not give in order to produce "plenty." I give out of simply noticing that plenty has already been produced.

Rules, such as the strict injunctive to give away ten percent of your worldly goods, are for those who need rules in order to implement basic truths and to live within the paradigm of basic understandings, such as the understanding of plenty. They provide a discipline. They offer a guideline. Masters are their own discipline. Masters create their own guidelines.

So, what that means, Brenda, is that you can give what you choose to give of your abundance. If you want to stay with a strict hard and fast ten percent, I would include everything you give to support the good of another in that figure, including the contribution to Habitat for Humanity. Here's how I did it some years ago. I set up a rough "division of the goodies." To my home church: three percent of my income each week; to the Children's Miracle Network (which I want to support), two percent each week; to the local medical assistance program for the indigent, two percent each week; to a special fund for family and friends when they need help, two percent each week; to set-aside for last minute choices and decisions (like Habitat for Humanity). One percent each week. Voila! There's your ten percent!

The answer to the second part of your question (where you ask about "vagueness") is again just about the same. Some teachers say, "don't limit God by being too specific." Some teachers say, "Be specific about what you choose!" I understand your frustration. So what I say here will be a great relief. It doesn't matter.

Look, Brenda, it's not as if God will accept your request only if it is made under certain guidelines, you know? That gets right back to ancient religions which teach that there is only one way to God, and all the rest of us are going to hell. Not so. Big lie. Same with this.

Even before you ask, God knows what you desire. You want to visualize something general, like "the right and perfect car?" Go ahead. You want to get specific? That's okay, too. Visualize a big red car with black interior. See the dashboard design in your mind's eye. Call out the model number, if you choose. Yet here's the trick: here's the secret. As soon as you "put it out there" in the universe, let it go. That is to say, detach yourself from results. CwG, Book 1 teaches that enlightenment is not about dropping all desires, escaping all passion, eschewing all choices. It is about retaining your passion for the thing. It actually encourages you to do so, for passion, the book says, is the beginning of creation; but it also instructs us to avoid being addicted to any particular outcome. Call forth what you choose, CwG says, and then accept what the universe supplies, with gratitude and with love, knowing that it is all perfect.

And try to get clear on this, too, Brenda: there is nothing that is best for you. "Best for you" is a relative term, dependent on a great many factors, not all of which may be consciously known to you. Therefore, a master never tries to figure out what is "best" for her. A master simply knows that what is "best" is that which now is.

Many blessings,

Short Takes




CWG on Relationships

August 9-11, 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, August 9th through Sunday, August 11th, 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.

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.


"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!"

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.

NOTE: You may also read the book for free on my Facebook page, where it is posted every other day in installments.
