Whatever you cause another to experience, you will one day experience. What you fail to do for another, you fail to do for you. What is good for another is good for you, and what is bad for another is bad for you.

Do You Know If You Know?



A Note from Neale


Hello my wonderful friends...

As you know if you are a regular reader, we have been exploring here something that I call The Holy Experience. And I said here last week that in this present issue I would see if I could even more closely describe that Experience, by more broadly defining it. So, here goes... The Holy Experience is as varied and as infinite as Life. It is a particular aspect of Life that explains life TO life through the process of life itself.

The Holy Experience is the experience of knowing, and of knowing that you know. It is the experience of being, and of being what you are being. It is the experience of having, and of having what you have.

I know that all of this may sound like just so much gobbledegook — circular talk getting nowhere — but if you will have a little patience, I think you will be well rewarded.

When I speak of the experience not only of "knowing," but of "knowing that you know," I am speaking of two distinctly different encounters with life. A wonderful teacher once opened me to the awareness that there are those who...

...do not know, and do not know that they do not know.
...do not know, and know that they do not know.
...do not know, but think that they know.
...know, but do not know that they know.
...know, but pretend that they do not know.
...know, and know that they know.

All of us fall into one of these six categories. So it is one thing to know, and another thing to know that you know.

Now the truth is that all of us know all that there is to know. Yet not all of us remember this, and so we have the experience of not knowing, or of knowing, but of not knowing that we know. In the moment that we know, and know that we know, we have had the Holy Experience.

Because this experience is so vast, it is almost more difficult not to have it than to have it. Yet most people still manage to not have it — even though half the world is yearning for it. That is because half the world does not understand that it is yearning for that which it already has.

For instance, peace.

The world's people yearn for peace, yet they do not experience it, nor do they demonstrate it. That is because they do not understand that they are peace. And in denying that which they intrinsically are, they deny themselves the experience of it.

This is what I meant when I said, just a bit ago, that the Holy Experience is being, and the experience of being what you are being.

To give you an example of what this means, or of how this could "show up" in real life, I can remember my father raising his voice at me in frustration when I was in high school because of the poor grades I kept bringing home.

"You're smarter than this," he would say, waving my report card at me. He was right. It was one thing for me to "be" smart (I was), but quite another for me to be being smart in my daily life — that is, to be acting like that. I was not demonstrating what I was, I was not demonstrating what my father knew me to be. I was IT, but I was not being IT.

To be, or not to be...that is the question.

Similarly, it is one thing to have everything in life, but if you are "having none of it" (that is, if you do not believe that you have it, or cannot acknowledge that you have it, or do not appreciate that you have it), then you may as well not have it at all.

You will not experience having it because you are not willing to "have" what you have. You are not willing to hold what you have been given.

That is why the marriage vow says "to have and to hold." You can have something, but if you do not hold it, it is just the same as not having it at all.

It is as if someone had given you a great gift, but you dropped it the moment you got your hands on it. You let go of it. You still have it. It is still in your possession. The person who gave it to you has long since disappeared. But you will not pick it up and hold it. And so it lies there at your feet, as useless as if you did not have it at all.

I cannot tell you how many people I have seen ignoring their talents in exactly this way. They have been given great gifts, but they will not pick them up, they will not use them.

And so the Holy Experience is knowing that you know, being what you are being, and having what you have. It is a large experience. It is a huge experience. It is the experience of who you are, writ large.

Hugs and Love,

Letters to Neale:


Reader question:


Dear Neale...

How does one stay in touch with current events without losing one’s center, one’s place of peace? So much news is excitable hype aimed at titillating the viewer and improving the network ratings. Naturally, death and violence top the list of what is deemed to be “news the people want.” I feel like I have to meditate before and after the news. I’m sure it’s an inner thing, a filter of sorts to detach from getting caught up in manipulative tactics. Your comments on this?

John, Enfield, NH.

 
 

Neale Responds:


Dear John,

Being “in the world, but not of it” has always been the challenge. Your idea of meditation is an excellent one. Meditate, meditate, meditate. Every morning and every evening, and every afternoon, too, if you can. Meditation exposes you to the inside of you, which is the truth about you, experienced. This will, just as you suggest, balance that to which you are exposed outside of you, which is the lie about you. Remember that always. That which is outside of you is the lie about you. Everything outside of your innermost experience is an illusion. Something which is being made up. It is being created by mass consciousness, and you can affect it, but it is not Who You Are.

In my world, I work to control everything that I put into my system. Not only food, but thoughts and images as well. Perhaps these even more importantly. Therefore, I do not watch movies which I do not believe will enrich me. And if I am in the middle of a movie and I experience that it is not enriching me, I leave. I get up and walk out of the room. I put a book down for the same reason. I let go of certain thoughts for the same reason.

I don’t pick up the newspaper anymore on days when I’m feeling particularly “open.” I can feel that. It is a felt sense of openness. It is an emotional-psychological-spiritual nakedness. It is not a bad feeling. It is a good feeling, like being physically naked. I nearly always feel good whenever I am physically naked. It is extremely rare; in fact, I cannot remember the last time that I was physically naked that I did not feel very good and very comfortable.

Many people are not comfortable with their own nakedness, but I am. I just happen to be. And that is how I feel emotionally and psychologically sometimes, too. It is a good feeling, a free feeling, but it is also a level of vulnerability that requires me to be keenly aware of what is coming into my space. So when I’m feeling that kind of openness, I do not even go near a newspaper. I find a good book instead. (Usually, I read my own!) Or I listen to some particularly wonderful music. Or better yet, I choose that moment to let something flow from me, rather than to me. I sit down and write — maybe a letter to a friend or maybe a blog.

So, John, my advice to you is, stop reading the newspapers, stop watching the news on television, stop exposing yourself to this energy, or any negative material, until you have developed the ability to “zip up.” That is, close up, on your mental command, your psychic field, your aura. Sometimes we have to do this in order to “be in this world, but not of it.” It is a skill, an ability, we develop. Actually, most of us develop it rather early. It is unzipping, opening up to the higher realms and the softer energies and the wispier nuances of life, that is the greatest challenge for many people.

Be grateful, therefore, my friend John, that for you the challenge is the opposite.

Many blessings,

You are invited to:

The HOME with God Retreat

September 13 - 15, 2019

Nothing has riveted humanity's interest more, nor has anything been more frightening or awe-inspiring, than the finality of death. For many, death has been a closed-door subject. Perhaps for most. Certainly there is a denial of death in our culture. Ironically, this denial may well arise out of a deep, cellular understanding of what is true — that death as a finality of life simply does not exist. Yet humanity as a whole does not seem to have arrived at a place where it fully comprehends death and what the experience really is.


The fears and questions that so many people hold around death were explored and resolved in Neale Donald Walsch's Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com #1 bestselling book, Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends. And now — in response to many requests — Neale has created a special retreat based on the remarkable insights of this closing dialogue with God.  

Over the course of 3 days, Neale will work with a small group to examine end-of-life questions that everyone longs to have answered. The insights from his conversation with God uplift us all, wiping away our fears and inviting us to celebrate, not mourn, every person's Continuation Day.

In 1 Corinthians, Chapter 15, verses 55-57 we read: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" The Home with God Retreat asks precisely the same question. The answers it provides, however, may be considerably less traditional than those found in the many Scriptures of our species. Be careful. This September offering from Neale Donald Walsch could change your ideas about death (and life) forever.


DATES: Friday, September 13th through Sunday, September 15th, 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 waitlist to our Annual No Fee retreat. Those who sign up for this waitlist will receive the No Fee Retreat announcement email 24 hours before the general public, thus giving this waitlist a chance to register before this fast-filling retreat hits capacity (which it typically does in 24-36 hours). You can join that waitlist 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, Xpressions Hair and Nail 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 (see all the amenities here), 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.

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.

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.
