What's going on in our world?

A Note from Neale

Hello, Everyone...

There is so much going on around us in our world right now — all the violence, death, and destruction that we are hearing about every day — the release of the Mueller report here in the USA, and the main thing I want to get across is that, appearances sometimes to the contrary, everything is going to be all right. The planet is not terminating human life on its surface. Rather, it is joining with the cosmos in evolving it.

I want to share here today some excerpts from the book The Storm Before the Calm, which was released a few years ago… In this book I say...

"I have chosen to give words to what is happening right now all over the world in many ways. I have called this the Overhaul of Humanity, and the words I've used to describe this phenomenon are dramatic because the event is dramatic.

"It is going to involve (indeed, it is already involving) every aspect of our lives. Our governance and politics, our economics and financial stability, our commerce and industry, our social conventions and constructions, our educational systems and approaches, our religions and beliefs, our customs and traditions — in fact, our entire Cultural Story.

"We can participate in this Overhaul or we can merely witness it, but we cannot stop it. Nor would we want to, for this is the greatest thing that has happened to our species since its appearance on this planet. That's why I want to have this conversation with you right now... so that people around the world may receive some clarity, insight, awareness, and comfort during the times ahead, which are going to no doubt be challenging, disturbing, and even scary for many.

"I believe that God wants us all to know that this time just ahead, and some of the trials and tribulations we are going to see, will bring our planet to a new and wonderful place when the process is complete... And the process will be complete in a relatively short period of time. We're not talking about another millennia here, or even a few centuries, but rather, decades. We are at the end of the turmoil, not the beginning. And we can help bring about that end if we do participate in our Overhaul, and if we do not merely witness it.

"As we contemplate all that is occurring right now it is fair to ask, 'Does this have to happen?'

"The answer is yes, it has to happen. Yes. Because all of life moves in cycles, according to a formula.

"Life is forever Functional, Adaptable, Sustainable. When the functionality of life in any of its manifestations in threatened, it adapts its manifestation, thus rendering itself sustainable in a new form.

"This is the reason for the human experience that we call death. Death is not the end of life at all, but the continuation of life through the adaptation of the manifestation of a given life form, thus rendering that life sustainable in a new form.

"This is true of everything in existence. Nothing 'dies,' and you cannot 'kill' a thing. Not anything at all. You cannot kill a person, you cannot kill an animal, you cannot kill a plant. To repeat the principle already stated: When the ability of any Life Expression to continue in its present expression is threatened, that Life Expression adapts its expression to allow it to immediately become sustainable again, through its New Expression. It is in this way that Life renders Life Itself eternal.

"Now there is no questioning that the ability of the Life Expression that we call Earth (what some have come to name Gaia) has had its ability to continue in its present expression compromised. The conditions leading to this threatening circumstance have been created in part by the life forms inhabiting the Earth. Those human Life Expressions, in turn, have had their own expression threatened. In short, neither the planet nor its people can continue to go on like this.

"Not to worry. They will not.

"Having reached the limit of its ability to produce sustainability under present conditions, the Cycle of Life is now playing its effect, adapting all life forms in this environment, so that all Life Expression here may once again be rendered sustainable.

"Now that's a lot of cosmologic jargon to simply say that Life is changing in order to continue. This includes human life and the life of the planet itself.

"So that's the Why of what's going on."

This is a really exciting moment in the history of humanity. It is the moment of our own evolutionary jump. It is time when, as visionary Barbara Marx Hubbard puts its, we will give birth to our species at last (we have been in a gestation period for thousands of years — a blink of an eye in cosmic terms), joining with great celebration the cosmic community of enlightened sentient beings.

If you are wondering what role we can actively play in this evolutionary process, join us here next week. We'll discuss it, yes?

Letters to Neale:

Reader question:

Dear Neale,

In CwG, God says we can't define God. If not, how do we know that God is love? Also, why did God want to know Himself? I have gotten used to the idea that God is love and light and truth and abundance, etc. But to some people, love is defined differently. If the only love they've known is limited and self-serving, how can they know that love is understanding and forgiveness and non-judgment? My brother-in-law thinks that love is disciplining, that God is a disciplinarian. He is comfortable with that. Probably because his father beat him. How do you tell people that love does not punish, that unconditional love does not force someone to anything by punishing them?



Neale Responds:

Dear Tracey,

Let's go from the top. In CwG , God says that "Love is all there is." God also says that God is All That Is. Therefore, God is love. Everything in our heart tells us this, too, by the way, and the heart is never wrong. I did not interpret the book to say that God cannot be defined. I believe what the book says is that God cannot be limited to any one definition or description — and by that limiting means, be so defined. That certainly sounds true to me, though it does not negate or invalidate the description of God as "love."

As to your second question, CwG says that God wanted to know Himself experientially. The same, says the book, is true of me and you. It is one thing to think of yourself or know yourself as, shall we say, compassionate, or loving, but it is quite another thing altogether to experience yourself as these things. If you have no one to love, you can "know yourself" as loving all you want, but it is not the same thing as actually loving someone through action in the here and now. God wishes to experience Itself as what It really was, and so the whole universe was created. Why? For the sheer joy of it, Tracey! For the joy of self expression.

Question three: The American Heritage Dictionary defines "punishment" as "a penalty imposed for wrong-doing." According to CwG, there is no such thing as "right" and "wrong." Therefore, "wrong-doing" is nonexistent, and so, too, "punishment." Most humans cannot accept this concept. They cannot understand how it could be so. Yet would a loving grandmother spank her toddling grandchild for breaking a dish or spilling her milk? Of course not.

God is very much like that loving grandmother. And we are very, very much like that toddler in our understandings and actions. And, as you point out, if the only love a person has known is limited and self-serving, it will be difficult to grasp, much less accept, the concept of a love which is unconditional.

As CwG points out, most people fall into this lot; most have never known a love which is without condition. And most people judge God to be operating on earthly norms. Yet to know God one must imagine a being much larger, much grander than anything one has seen in this life. One must not assign God earthly attributes, earthly understandings and earthly limitations, but rather, qualities that are unknown in our experience.

With regard to God, one must accept the possibility that there is something we do not know, the knowing of which could change everything.

You see, this is our chief problem: we think we already know everything there is to know about God. And so any description of God which does not fall within our current understandings is automatically rejected as "false," "wrong," and "blasphemy." Yet if there is such a thing as blasphemy, it would be to assert, announce and declare that we know everything there is to know about God, that our beliefs about God are the right beliefs, and that anyone who does not accept our beliefs is going straight to hell.

How do you tell someone with a limited understanding, based on their limited experience of real love, about the unconditional love of God? You don't. You don't tell them anything about it. You demonstrate it.

Many blessings,

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.

FLEX-PRICING DETAILS: We are happy to share our Flexible Pricing Options for this and other similar workshops. All you have to do is select the price that you feel is most appropriate to you given the value you place on such a program and your own financial means.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE: All of the proceeds made from this event, after the considerable costs of presenting it, will go back into bringing the CWG messages into the world.

Please click on one of the following options to select your price:

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. For reservations, please call 541-770-1234 and request the "Conversations with God" group rate. To receive this group rate, reservations must be made well in advance. Persons reserving rooms very near the program start date will be quoted the hotel's regular room rate.

The Rogue Regency features a full service restaurant offering vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare, beauty salon, barbershop, massage therapist, indoor heated pool, spa, terry bathrobes and feather pillows in all guest rooms, with optional two-room suites with hot tub and fireplace at a slightly higher price, plus free transportation to and from the Medford Airport (MFR), five minutes away. 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.

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.
