If you see a future event or experience you do not like, don't choose it! Choose again! Select another! Change or alter your behavior so as to avoid the undesired outcome.

Why Would Your Soul Do This?

A Note from Neale

My dear friends...

As you know, we have been having an ongoing exploration here of The Holy Experience. And last week we said that The Holy Experience is when nothing has changed, but everything is different.

What has been altered is not the Exterior, but the Interior. Now you are clear that you are choosing, and that nothing is being forced upon you, with regard to how you are experiencing Life.

Now I am clear as I write this that this idea, this attitude, could only be easily embraced by people who are living in a free society. For other human beings many, many other human beings who live under the rule of despots, who do not have access to any kind of real economic or occupational opportunity, talk such as what I have been rolling out here might understandably fall on deaf ears.

"That's easy for you to say," those people might mutter. And in a human sense they would be right. Only from the standpoint of the Soul would any of this make sense in all human situations — even life under the thumb of a despot.

One would have to ask, from the level of Soul...Why has the Soul chosen to incarnate, to take a physical form, in a circumstance of such personal oppression? Could it be that the Soul knew exactly what it was doing?

Yet why would any Soul do such a thing on purpose?

Could it be that Souls who live physical lives of oppression or pain do so with the highest spiritual awareness and intention? Could it be that many who are doing so are doing it in order to give those who are not living such lives the opportunity to experience themselves as helpers, as healers, and perhaps even as liberators?

Could it even be that those who live such lives in the extreme allow themselves, at the Soul level, to endure such physical experiences in order to ultimately prove and demonstrate to the rest of us Who We Really Are? Could they be showing us that our Being is not merely a Body and a Mind, and that our physical suffering ends when the Body and Mind are raised to the highest level of awareness of our true identity?

Could this be what The Resurrection was all about?

Was what happened to Jesus something that Jesus had to endure, or something his Soul chose to experience? Which was it…? And if it was the second, was the Soul of Jesus the only soul in the history of the world to make such a choice?

I have been told that the answer to that question is no. I know it is difficult to believe, but I have been told that the answer is no. Many souls, I have been told, experience their own individualized persecutions and crucifixions – and for exactly the same reason.

And we will continue this extraordinary discussion next week in this space.

Letters to Neale:

Reader question:

Dear Neale,

I have written this question before, but no answer so I shall try again: Why not appear on television talk shows or PBS specials like Dr. Dyer? I mention your books and ideas to many friends and family, but they have no idea who you are. Yet, I mention Dr. Wayne Dyer, and they know him.

Your philosophical concepts are every bit as important (even more important, as far as I am concerned) as Dr. Dyer's; yet, the word just doesn't seem to be hitting the masses.

I am confused that you can have so many best-selling books and be so unknown.

Please, the world needs your ideas so urgently. Television works for Evangelical religions, why not for you?

Some day in the future people will recognize their addiction to myths, but I would like to see that realization come sooner.

Sincerely, Ken


Neale Responds:

Dear Ken... Thank you for the kind thoughts and good energies that you are holding around this CwG message. To answer your questions... public television would not be able to give me program time, as it gives Wayne, because I am the Man Who Talked to God, and that puts me into the category of Religion, and television supported by tax dollars probably cannot go there.

Television works for evangelical religions because they have a great deal of money, buy their own program time on commercial television stations, and then pitch like crazy at the end of the show for more contributions to support the show. They give away "premiums" for people who send in money, like free pictures of Christ holding the world, or a free prayer book, or something. You've seen them, and so have I. I have nothing against this, and do not judge or condemn it. I admire them, in fact, for doing what it takes to get the word out. I just cannot imagine myself doing that particular thing in that particular way.

Now if someone came along – some person or group – and said, "We will support you in putting this message on television," and paid for the studio production and on-air time, I would do it in a minute. Know anybody like that? Want to start a Put CwG On Television Campaign?


NOTE: If you would like to write a Letter to the Editor of this Bulletin, simply send an e-mail to, with “Letter to the Editor” in the subject line. Neale occasionally uses messages from other sources in this column.


Short Takes


During this time of challenge we thought
you might want to know about...

The Conversations with God E-treats  
Placing our much loved Spiritual Renewal Retreats online
in a Pay-What-You-Can opportunity to accommodate everyone


On April 18, Neale Donald Walsch will offer his new One Day-Plus program: one full Saturday and the following morning, equaling 12 hours of deep exploration of life's most compelling questions during this time of turmoil:

What is going on in our world? What can we make of this?
How can I feel safe? Will we ever know peace again?

Initially scheduled to be presented across the summer as part of the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the publication of Conversations with God, this program has been moved to mid-April to help those who are looking for answers now as they encounter the present turn of events on Earth. Originally priced at $120, this "E-treat" is now being offered on a plan that allows participants to offer any percent of that total, from zero to 100%, that is possible for them right now.

This online Zoom-based E-treat, conducted by Neale live, with real-time participant Interactions and Q&A, is scheduled for:

Saturday, April 18, 8:30am-7pm
Sunday, April 19, 8:30am-11:30am

All times Pacific Time

The program is titled Dealing with Change, and is focused on the messages of When Everything Changes, Change Everything, published in 2009, but never more relevant than it is today, with many aspects of life changing before our eyes. To facilitate Neale's direct interaction with participants, spaces must be limited, so early sign up is encouraged.

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:

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.
