Are We Really All 'Family'?



A Note from Neale


Hello my wonderful friends...

We're looking here at the impact of The Holy Experience on the part of our lives that we call our Family Life.

In CWG we are invited to experience ourselves as members of the human family, and to imagine how we would treat others if we really thought that we were exactly that: members of the same family. This is the Holy Experience as it relates to our family.

You can know that you are having the Holy Experience when you consider every other member of the human race to be a member of your own family. When you experience them in that way.

For many people this is extremely difficult because it goes against the grain of everything they've ever learned or been taught or understood.

Many cultures actually teach their children not to think of people outside of their immediate cultural group as members of their own family. In fact, it goes further than that. Many cultures actively instruct their children to think of some of the people who are outside of their immediate cultural group as enemies; to oppose, even to be at war, with other cultures because of cultural differences which they believe to be antithetical to their own survival.

For centuries and millennia the human race has lived within a social construct of separation and division. This has been created out of our earliest thoughts that we are separate from everything we see and separate from that Source of All Creation which we have imagined to be responsible for the universe around us.

From the beginning of time, human beings have understood that something Larger Than Us was responsible for the outer world of our observation. We looked up at the night sky and saw something more expansive and magnificent than anything we knew humanity was capable of creating.

We watched the elements play their effect on our daily lives — the wind, the rain, the fires, and all the elements of life — and we knew that something greater than us had to be responsible for these as well.

We watched the changing of the seasons and we observed the phenomenon of weather — the ravages of hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes and floods and other natural disasters — and once again we came to the conclusion that something outside of us, or larger than us, or other than us, had to do with all this. Surely we had nothing to do with it, so Someone Else must.

From these and other observations we came to the natural conclusion that something that we today call "God" or "Allah" or "Jehovah" or "Brahman" (or any one of a hundred other names) must exist. We were correct in our conclusion, even if we were incorrect in our means of reaching it.

Next week, we will explore the effect that these ideas have had on the human experience. And in the weeks ahead we'll look at how we can turn that impact around, creating the kind of lives for which we all yearn. I hope you'll join us for this continuing series.

Hugs and Love,

Letters to Neale:


Reader question:


Hi Neale,

I just read an email to you that triggered something in me. I'm not sure what my specific question is, so forgive my rambling...

I am estranged from my 18-year old son. I have 2 other younger sons with whom I have a good relationship (they live with their father, which is a decision that is extremely difficult for me to live with). The history is long and convoluted, but suffice it to say that my 18-year old does not like the man I am currently married to (his father and I divorced, and it wasn't pretty, so I understand that part of the equation).

My son was physically abusive to me on two occasions when he lived with me, and the second time I called the police. Then he mouthed off to my current husband, who got into his face and basically threatened him (I am surrounded by violent, controlling men! Red flag number one!).

I have always considered myself a rational, intelligent person with a good grasp of my spirituality. I now realize that I have let others control my life, and here I am, in a place I don't want to be, and I now know that I "made my own bed" so I get to sleep in it!

I guess my question is: I have such regret at the events that have transpired, and the choices I've made. I'm heartbroken that I let my life get to this point.

Can you help me find a lesson here so I can move forward and stop dwelling on the past?

Thanks so much for your generosity with sharing your work.

Please sign me as "anonymous" — red flag number 2!

 
 

Neale Responds:


My Dear Friend...

I am so sorry that your choices have produced these results. The first thing I would like to advise you to do about it is tell the truth. Just sit down with everybody and tell the truth!

This will clear the air and give you an opportunity to make a true "fresh start." Then, tell your family and your loved ones how you are choosing to create your life from this time forward. Specifically...

1. Tell your son that if he ever raises a hand to you again that you will press charges, have him thrown in jail, and remove him effectively from your life. You are not required to continue to receive and accept physical abuse in order to qualify as being spiritually awakened. In fact, just the opposite is true.

2. Tell your current husband that you do not choose to live with a man who is controlling and potentially violent and that you would like him to join you in counseling to explore alternatives other than getting in people's faces and threatening them when they "mouth off."

3. Tell everyone who has an interest in knowing that you are no longer going to allow your life to be controlled by others, and that if this does not work for them, they may want to consider their own future options.

Do none of this in anger or with negative energy. Simply have a quiet talk with everyone and "say it like it is."

My friend, it is not true that because you have made your bed, now you have to lie in it. You can change anything that you want in your life. Start by telling everyone the truth. Start by telling everyone that you so, so regret the choices you made. Then begin to make new choices — yes, even if it means, in a sense, going backwards. Yesterday is not today, and it certainly is not tomorrow. Each moment, much less each day, is a chance to start over. Don't you dare give up your future because it looks like you have no choice. You ALWAYS have a choice. Remember that.

Tell the truth, tell the truth, TELL THE TRUTH.

The truth shall set you free!

It may look "scary" for a while, but the truth shall set you free. Every time I have gotten myself into a mess it is because I have not told the truth, and the whole truth, to someone important.

Tell the truth, tell the truth, TELL THE TRUTH.

Hugs and best thoughts,

CWG on Relationships
 

March 27-29, 2020

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 27 through Sunday, March 29, 2020.

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.

We know that you understand.

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




OUR NEWEST 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:


The Essential Path

Is it possible that everything we think we know about God, and what God wants, is wrong?

People everywhere are noticeably worried as they step daily into an “us against them” world, with people divided from each other as never before across political, economic, social, and spiritual lines. We're all asking, “What can I do? Is there anything the average person can do?” as we see the unifying fabric of our civilization being torn apart right before our eyes, separating many of us from our friends and even our loved ones, from our hopes and dreams, and from so much that gives meaning and value to our lives.

Sadly, we are turning against each other, rather than to each other, just when we need each other the most. But there is something we can do. In fact, we're all just one daring decision away from being able to make a major impact in changing directions.

In The Essential Path the bestselling author of Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch, offers a radical solution, peering into the heart of a broken, divided society and exploring the critical role that every person can play in returning to a place of peace, joy, and hope. While The Essential Path is a very short book, easy to complete in one quick sitting, don’t be surprised if you call it the most personally impactful book you’ve read in a very long time.
