Daily Thought

 

Remember always that yours is a world of Illusion, that nothing you see is real, and that you may use the illusion to bring you a grand experience of the Ultimate Reality. Indeed, that is what you have come here to do. You are living in a dream of your own creation. Let if be the dream of a lifetime, for that is exactly what it is. You donít always get what you ask, but you always get what you create. Creation follows thought, which follows perception.

Let Unworthiness Melt Away



A Note from Neale


Hello my wonderful friends...

We continue this week our ongoing series on The Holy Experience Experience. The second step in creating the Holy Experience is understanding that you are worthy of having it.

We touched upon this briefly in the preceding chapter. You might say that the first step in creating the Holy Experience is believing that such a thing is possible, and the second step is believing that such a thing is possible for you.

Most people who suffer from unworthiness around this picked up their thoughts from religion. Many people have been told that they are sinners, that they were born in sin, and that they will die in sin, their only hope for salvation being their constant call for forgiveness, and God's mercy in granting it, or their belief in God's Son as the Redeemer.

Others have been told that even if they were worthy of seeing God – which is what the Holy Experience is all about – they would not be able to see God anyway, because God is so magnificent and utterly unfathomable that God cannot be seen, comprehended, or experienced.

Still other religions teach that to even try to fathom God, to try to understand God, is blasphemous. God is the Inexplicable, and should remain so.

Conversations with God tells us that all of these premises are false.

No one is "born in sin." Indeed, sin itself does not exist. There is no such thing as "offending" God. Nor is God subject to stress, anger, frustration, or disappointment. That is simply not the nature of That Which Is Divine.

Perhaps this is a good juncture at which to undertake a brief review of just who and what God is.

In The New Revelations we were told...

"God is not a singular Super Being, living somewhere in the Universe or outside of it, having the same emotional needs and subject to the same emotional turmoil as humans. That Which Is God cannot be hurt or damaged in any way, and so, has no need to seek revenge or impose punishment."

We are told something else there as well, something perhaps a bit more unexpected:

"God needs nothing. God requires nothing in order to be happy. God is happiness itself. Therefore, God requires nothing of anyone or anything in the universe."

Now if these statements are true (and I say they are), there is no reason for us to worry about God being angry with us, nor to assess ourselves unworthy of God's love, or of God's presence in our lives, or of the Holy Experience.

Two years later, in Tomorrow's God, we were given an even more comprehensive close-up view of God and the nature of Divinity, with some of the earlier revelations being essentially repeated, but with new ones added. Few of the ideas found there, however, are held by the majority of people in today's society.

Nearly all of these concepts violate most people's most fundamental beliefs about God. Yet if we were to embrace these concepts, I believe that our whole lives would change.

Here is what that extraordinary text tells us:

  • Tomorrow's God does not require anyone to believe in God.
  • Tomorrow's God is without gender, size, shape, color, or any of the characteristics of an individual living being.
  • Tomorrow's God talks with everyone, all the time.
  • Tomorrow's God is separate from nothing, but is Everywhere Present, the All In All, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Sum Total of Everything that ever was, is now, and ever shall be.
  • Tomorrow's God is not a singular Super Being, but the extra-ordinary process called Life.
  • Tomorrow's God is ever changing.
  • Tomorrow's God is needless.
  • Tomorrow's God does not ask to be served, but is the Servant of all of Life.
  • Tomorrow's God will be unconditionally loving, non-judgmental, non- condemning, and non-punishing.

Given all that we have now come to know about God, any thoughts of unworthiness melt away. This assumes, of course, that we accept these new understandings and embrace them as truth.

In order to do this we would have to be willing to step away from practically everything we have been told in the past about God and ourselves. We would have to consider the possibility that there may be something we do not fully understand about God, the understanding of which would change everything. We would have to give up our spiritual arrogance.

My friend Bill Fischofer likes to say, "In fairness, no religion claims they 'understand' God, for all believe that He is infinite and thus beyond understanding. The problem, always, is that our concepts of God are too small. Since God is infinite in all 'directions,' wherever one turns one finds an inexhaustible terrain. Religion A and Religion B both find themselves in infinite fields of wonder and thus assume that they have 'found God.' Indeed, they have, but God is so unfathomably vast that what they fail to notice is that God is 'big enough' to contain the entirety of their (seemingly different) infinite vistas (and more). This is why it is in the mystical traditions of religions that one finds spiritual unity (and, of course, in Conversations with God), for only here is this larger realization glimpsed."

The followers of many of the world's so called "mainline" religions will tell you that everything you need is in the doctrines and dogmas of their particular faith. It's a complete road map, and all we have to do is follow it. It's the surest path to our salvation. Indeed, say some, it is the only path.

Yet that path has not brought humanity to its salvation, but rather, to its knees. It is time now to do something that we have not been willing to do. It is time to question the prior assumption.

Our prior ideas about God and Life and each other may very well be incomplete. I do not believe that they are "wrong," but I do believe that there is more to know, that there are gaps to close, that there are blanks to fill in regarding our understanding of who we are, who God is, and what life is all about. I believe that the gathering of this knowledge (presuming that we have the courage to do so), the closing of these gaps, and the filling in of these blanks will render obsolete all question of your worthiness for the Holy Experience.

Letters to Neale:


Reader question:


Dear Neale...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for writing
Conversations with God. In a sense, I envy you, wishing to “heaven” I’d authored it, instead of yourself; but whatever, if we are “all one,” then I really did have a hand in getting it channeled, created, and into print. I just wish I also had a share of its royalties!

You did a marvelous job of writing down much of my belief system, and it was confirming for me to see it in print! I’ve never “fit in” with my relatives, who tried to save me when I never felt “lost,” and always judged me ill for not believing in “hell,” the devil, or even right and wrong! Well, whew! It’s good to know I’m not the only one who thinks the way I do. Seems “God” also shares the same views! So, thank you for getting the message into print.

I’ve always said that when I died I’d have a list of questions to present to “God” if I could even find Her. You beat me to it with most of them. I still have a few. How come my kid was born handicapped? I wonder if my frustration with her challenging behavior is out of “fear,” but fear of what? When I’m tired (physically, emotionally, etc), there’s neither love nor fear present, just a lack of energy, i.e., I’m tired!

Peace and power,

Avalon

 
 

Neale Responds:


Dear Avalon,

Thank you for your letter and kind words. The question as to why some people come into this world with physical challenges is addressed in Conversations with God. We do not know the agenda of the soul, but the admonition is not to judge, nor call it wrong, but simply to see it as a blessed experience in the life of that soul.

It is the purpose of life to bring us all every experience that the human adventure allows. The up and down of it, the left and right of it, the male and female of it, the here and there of it. The soul will not rest until it has had the sum and substance of the human experience, the totality of its possibilities. Perhaps it is for this reason that in some lifetimes souls enter a body that is what you have called “handicapped.”

You ask about frustration, and I tell you that all frustration within the human experience finds its origin in fear. I grant you that frustration is a very mild form of fear, yet it is fear nonetheless. The one who comes from love and only from love never experiences frustration. Frustration is, of course, a fear that what we are doing cannot be continued; that we will run out of energy; that it is all “just too much;” that we have reached the end of the line. Frustration is our announcement to ourselves that we need to move back into love in order to find our “center” once again.

You say that in your moments of frustration there is neither love nor fear present, just a loss of energy; in other words, you are simply tired. “Tired” is not a condition which is known in the presence of love. Lovers who are deeply in love have been known to stay up day and night for long periods of time, simply being with each other. It is when love changes to fear that energy rapidly drains, leaving the system of the human body.

Don’t berate yourself about this, or beat yourself up. It is a normal human experience and not something to be ashamed of. In your moments of frustration, simply notice that you are frustrated, do whatever it takes to move through that experience in a way which benefits and serves you, and then go on with your life without self recrimination. Of course you are frustrated. There is much to be done, there is a great deal of challenge in the doing of it, and most people would be frustrated. Don’t look too deeply into this. There is no “mystery” here. There is only what is obvious. And it is all perfectly all right.

Many blessings,

Holiday Retreat

The Conversations with God
Annual Year-End Holiday Retreat

 

December 29-31, 2019

A very special moment for reflection on the past year

and the setting of intentions for the next year


There come times in the human experience when the Heart, Mind, and Soul—all three—call to us at the deepest place of our being to simply stop, just for a while, and look at where we have been...and where we want to be going. The end of every calendar year is one such obvious time. And this year, it is a more powerful time than ever. Look around you. Look at what is going on in your life. Then look at what is going on all over the world. When you make an assessment of all this, you will understand why Neale has created this very appropriate topic for this CWG retreat: DEALING WITH UNWELCOME OR UNEXPECTED CHANGE.  

This timely end-of-year retreat is designed to move you to clarity on how you may employ spiritual tools to help you mentally and emotionally cope with all that is happening around the globe — with leaders on the world stage loudly and belligerently threatening to destroy each other, with global warming whipping up storms to a level we have never seen before, and with social and political issues dividing people more profoundly and disturbingly than ever — to say nothing of the shifting conditions in our personal lives. Using the eye-opening messages of Conversations with God as a source and a reference point, these three days could bring you closer to inner peace than you have been in a very long time.

Let this be the perfect gift for you, or someone you know who is expressing worry, concern, or upset about the state of the world, or about an aspect of their personal lives. DEALING WITH UNWELCOME OR UNEXPECTED CHANGE will help you apply the messages of CWG to life as it is showing up right now. There could be no better way to start 2020.

This is not a typical "workshop," with lots of dyads and breakout groups and "circle-ups"... This is a spiritual renewal retreat, consisting of quiet conversation, gentle spiritual invitations, and highly personal interactive exchanges with the author of Conversations with God as he moves with you through the intimate process of your own awakening to greater clarity on what you wish to be, do, and have in your Life, using the special messages of the spiritual books that have changed the world.

And, after a catered dinner together, the program culminates with a wonderful New Year's Resolutions Ritual just before Midnight on December 31st, followed by dancing and celebration as participants ring in 2020 with Neale and his wife Em, strengthened by new decisions regarding personal choices and the creating of new inner realities in the year ahead.

DATES: Sunday, December 29th through Tuesday, December 31st.

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.

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

SCHEDULE: Event check-in begins at 9am at the Hotel on December 29, with the first session starting at 10am.

The New Year's Eve dinner is included, and includes both non-vegetarian and vegetarian fare. The program ends after the New Year's Eve party, late the night of December 31 following a very special New Year's Resolutions Ritual.

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.

CONTACT: For more program information, contact Will Richardson at
1-352-442-2244 (in Oregon, USA Pacific Time) or email ndwsupport@gmail.com 

CANCELLATION POLICY: Payment is required in full at time of registration. A cancellation fee of 35% of the amount you choose in the Flex-Plan will be charged for cancellations made more than 30 days prior to the event start date. NO REFUND CAN BE ISSUED if you cancel LESS THAN 30 DAYS PRIOR TO EVENT START DATE, as we will have held a place for you, and it will be in most cases too late for others to book your space. We know that you understand.

Thank you for your interest in this very special spiritual renewal retreat.
We hope to see you there.

 


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.
