Daily Thought

 

It is time to move from the Old Spirituality to the New Spirituality, to let go of Yesterdayís God and to embrace Tomorrowís God. The message here that Tomorrowís God will be separate from nothing, is a radical message. It is also a very important one-perhaps the single most important message of the New Spirituality. And it is the one element that is missing from most of the worldís theologies. The New Spirituality will never condemn traditional religion, but seek always to include it in the process by which divine truth continues to be revealed. There are far too many treasures in your religious traditions to abandon them. The future of humanity with regard to religion is not about desertion, but dissection, not about rejection, but rejuvenation

You Are Co-Creating Life's Events



A Note from Neale


My dear friends,

Here in the Bulletin we have been exploring the nature of the events of life that appear in our reality every day. It is sometimes assumed that you have no control over exterior conditions, circumstances, or events — and I know that it can very often feel that way — but, in truth, you are co-creating them with others in your life — remembering, of course, as I have mentioned in previous weeks, how we are using the word "create" as a synonym for remember.

(To recap: When you "create" things you are actually remembering, or becoming aware of once again, what always was, is now, and always will be. Your awareness expands to the boundary-less place beyond Time and Space, into the spaciousness of all the When/Wheres of Existence.)

You have co-created the outward circumstance called repetition in order to create the inner experience called understanding. It is for this purpose that you are co-creating, one by one, all the conditions, circumstances, and events of your life.

This is a very difficult thing for many people to believe. It is a challenging concept to embrace, and a transformational understanding to accept. When you accept this understanding, you accept Who You Really Are. And that IS the Holy Experience.

There is no other.

When you fail to accept this understanding, you fail to accept the Truth about your Self, and then you live the lie about you. Your whole life becomes a lie, as one falsehood feeds and perpetuates another.

The initial step to Mastery is the acceptance of this Divine Truth at the first level. If you cannot accept that you are co-creating all of the conditions, circumstances, and events of your life, at least accept that you are creating your experience of them. You, and you alone, are deciding how you feel about them. No one else can tell you how to feel about anything. Surely that is undeniable.

Any delivery person can leave a package at your door. They cannot require you to take it into your house. You do not have to do so if you do not wish to. You can leave it on the front stoop.

So when a person brings a package of Anger to your door, leave it on the front stoop. Do not take it in. When a person brings a box of Rudeness to your door, leave it on the front stoop. Do not take it in. When a person brings a container of Unkindness to your door, leave it on the front stoop. Do not take it in.

Deciding how you wish to feel about whatever is happening around you, and then causing yourself to feel that way, is the first step to Mastery.

("I wish I wouldn't become so upset every time she's late getting ready for us to go somewhere. I wish I could remain calm and loving and accept this part of her..." — "I wish I could learn to deal with disappointment better. I wish I could just be philosophical about it..." — "I wish I could stop being so hurt when someone else has been sarcastic with me...")

These are all common self-wishes. You can make such wishes come true. Always, always, always remember: Your "experience" of something is how you feel about it. And how you feel about anything is something that you can (and do, whether you know it or not) control.

In the world of Duality Thinking (which is the world in which most of us live), you could imagine that somebody else is "doing something" to you, or that some seemingly uncontrollable outward condition has been encountered by you, without you having had anything to do with it.

Such a thing is impossible, given that Duality is not the Reality, yet in the world of our illusion such impossibilities can seem very real.

We will explore more about the world of Duality Thinking, and so-called "victim consciousness," next week.

Until then, I wish you well on your journey.

Hugs and love,

Letters to Neale:


Reader question:


Mr. Walsch,

First, I want to thank you for writing your books and having the patience and perseverance to complete all of them and see them through to publishing. I began reading them when my daughter Allison was born with Noonan Syndrome. She was ill off and on and endured 7 surgeries in 9 years. I was desperate to understand why she had to endure such pain and hardship and what I had done, if anything, to possibly cause her to live the difficult life she was living.

In November of 2004, when she was 9, she was running on the playground at school and died instantly from an arrhythmia. She had a contagious passion for life and made each moment fun. She sang and laughed while doing everything. Everyone seemed to be drawn to her. Even strangers would come up to her and want to talk to her and touch her. I have been contacted by people as far away as New York who had heard of a friend of a friend who knew Ally.

Since her passing, I find I have lost my passion for life. I have another daughter who is recovering from the trauma of losing her only sibling. I can't help feeling that if I was diagnosed with a terminal illness, I would be relieved. I feel emotionally exhausted and I just want to move on from this part of my existence.

I know Ally is OK and I believe that I will see her again. It is almost as if while she was alive, I felt a direct connection to God. I could look at her and hold her and I felt this peaceful feeling that I believe came from her. I do believe that she was an angel.

I do not fear death and just want this pain to end. Living for 9 years with Ally knowing in my heart that she was not going to live a full life, and then losing her so suddenly, has just drained me. I continue on, have gotten my teaching credential, and I try every day to reach the children I teach and help them be the best they can be. But something has changed in me.

Is there any way I can find that peaceful feeling again? I want to learn from Ally, and be the best I can be every day. I do not wish to end my own life, I just am longing for the feeling I had when my Ally was with me. I have dreamed of her twice since her death and both times I felt the connection again. Any words of wisdom?

Cindee

 
 

Neale Responds:


My dear Cindee, I can think of nothing more devastating to any person than the loss of a child. I completely understand your emotional response to this, and I experience enormous empathy when reading your letter. You are a brave and very strong woman to have continued on to obtain your teaching certificate and to create a life where you are around other children constantly, to say nothing of your other daughter, who is, in your words, still recovering from the trauma of losing her only sibling.

I am sure that I do not need to tell you that this daughter needs you now more than ever, and that the children who look to you for care and guidance in the classroom every day are likewise depending on you at a very high level. So I see the unique situation in which life has placed you — and I honor you for holding that place with such courage.

The first thing I find myself wanting to do, Cindee, is recommend that you read (or re-read, as the case may be) my book HOME WITH GOD in a Life That Never Ends. This book will reconfirm for you everything that you already seem to know about your wonderful Ally — and perhaps much more that you may only have wondered about or suspected. Not the least of this information is the passage of that book having to do with the death of children. That passage tells us, Cindee, that...

"Death is very kind to children, because children rarely move into death holding all sorts of preconceived negative notions about what happens afterward. They are pure. They have only just come from the spiritual realm. They are not that far removed from the Core of Their Being. They have just emerged from The Essence. And so small children move through the first stages of death very quickly and return almost immediately into Mergence with The Essence.

"It should be said that children 'grow up' in the Afterlife. That is, they become fully aware and fully conscious of all that is going on, and of Ultimate Reality. They know why they came to the Earth and they know why they left as early as they did. If they feel complete with all of that, they will move on, in whatever form they choose. If they do not feel complete, they will have the same opportunity to 'come back to life' as any other soul. The process is the same for all souls, no matter what the age of their body when they leave the physical world.

"But now I should like to say something about the agenda of children who die at a very young age.

"Those souls who enter the body and leave the body within a very short period — children who die... at a very tender age — inevitably do so in service to the agenda of another, at a very high level... In some cases they are required to leave early in order to do that. This is never, however, a tragedy for that soul. They have agreed to leave early.

"Every soul who comes to the body to serve the agenda of others is an angel — and every child who has died very young has done so to bring a gift to another. That gift may not be understood for some time by parents and others who are, naturally, deeply grieving. But I promise you that as time goes by and healing occurs, the gift will be seen, it will be received, and the work of that little sweetheart — who could only be described as an angel — will have been accomplished."


I know, Cindee, because you have told me so, that you already know that Ally was and is an angel. But I wonder if you have previously considered the rest of that passage from HOME WITH GOD. There is an agenda that Ally came here to serve, and it was not only her own. Or, to put this another way, her own agenda was to serve the agenda of others. These would include everyone whose life was touched by her... and you tell me that this was a great many people. I am not surprised. Yet have you considered the possibility that this included your own spiritual agenda, Cindee?

I know that, on the surface, that may be a difficult thing for a mother saddened by the death of her child to hear. But I believe that just below the surface of that challenging statement is a deep revelation of enormous value. I know that during the remainder of your years on earth, Cindee, you will touch the lives of a great many people — and a great many of them, because of your chosen profession, will be children. Do you think this is an accident? I, Cindee, do not. I see in it a perfect design. And I believe that you will be a more compassionate, more caring, more sensitive, more understanding, more insightful, more wonderful-in-every-way guide for those children than they could ever have hoped to find at their schoolhouse... all because of the experience in life that you have had, and that your angel Ally has brought you to.

I am going to go further, Cindee. I am going to say that I believe that Ally and the souls of all those other children had it set up that way. That is, your wonderful child died for a reason much larger than you might ever have imagined: to prepare you to touch the lives of not just one child, but hundreds and hundreds of children, in a way which could only emerge from a heart that had been broken... and healed again, thus to know the true wonder and glory of life, of childhood, of Divinity Itself, and the worth of each and every soul. I believe every child in every classroom you ever enter from this day until the end of your life is waiting, Cindee, for you to give him or her that gift. I believe that your other daughter awaits your giving of that gift every time she folds herself into your arms. And I believe that when you hold her, you hold Ally, too. For Ally's soul accompanies the soul of her sister into your arms, that her healing and joy may be yours, even as yours is her sister's.

Is this too large a reality for you to embrace or comprehend, Cindee? I don't think so, or you would never have written me. So go now, and celebrate Ally's everlasting presence by honoring her soul's intention, and yours. Shed not tears of sadness, but tears of joy, for as you bring lightness and happiness and the promise of tomorrow to all other children — and, indeed, to all people who enter your life — you bring them a piece of Ally... who, after all, was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, a piece of YOU.

God bless you, my friend, and thank you for writing to me. A part of me shall be with you always because of this exchange we have shared. Know that God sends you strength and wisdom in unending abundance

With Love...

Short Takes

 



Neale Donald Walsch presents...

The Conversations with God E-treat:

The Home With God E-treat


September 26-27, 2020


Join us for another online virtual event, conducted by Neale live, with real-time two-way interactions with participants.

On September 26 - 27, 2020 Neale will present The Home with God E-treat in his 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 challenge. Now, more than ever, we want to know...

What's an E-treat?
Through the power of Zoom, we have developed an online version of our much loved, in-person, Spiritual Renewal Retreats, making it possible for you and Neale to connect in a new and surprisingly intimate way.


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.  

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.

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 best-selling 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.

More About this E-treat:

Who among us would have imagined six months ago that our lives would be undergoing an experience such as the one we’re moving through now?


This E-treat offers a deep look at topics rarely discussed in everyday conversation, but that absolutely affect our everyday experience. Direct interaction with Neale can bring these understandings home in a powerfully personal, and actually useful, way.

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.

Initially scheduled to be presented across the summer as part of the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the publication of CWG, this program has been moved to help those who are looking for answers now as they encounter the present turn of events on Earth.

The retreat will be going up for registration in just a short time...

OUR WONDERFUL, ONLINE 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.
