Bulletin #783


January 5, 2018


A Note from Neale...

My dear friends,

And so now here we are, already into the first week of the New Year. What a remarkable thing Time is. It moves so slow when we are waiting for something special, and it moves so fast when we are not looking.

I don't know what happened to 2017. I really don't. Because just the other day I was talking about IT being the "New Year," and now here we are and it is 2018! And did I do everything I wanted to do in 2017? No. Did I do enough? Yes? I accomplished enough of what I wanted to accomplish to call it a successful year, a good year. But it was not a good year for everyone. People lost their homes. Their savings and pensions. Jobs ended for many. Relationships dissolved. For many, everything changed.

Now we have a chance to start over. I love this time of the New Year celebration, because for me it signals A New Beginning, a New Start. We live in cycles. All of life expresses in cycles. Life itself is a cycle. And when a cycle begins anew, there is a freshness in the air; a new sense of hope.

Hope is something we must never give up. Yet it is only the beginning. After hope comes faith, or belief, and after faith comes knowing.

Hope is the beginning of the Mind's Journey to Awareness. When we hope for something, we are saying that we are not sure that it will or can happen, but we fervently wish that it would. When we have faith in something, we are saying that we believe that it will or can happen, yet there is still some element of wonderment or doubt...otherwise "faith" would not be necessary. When we know about something, we are saying that we are certain that it can and will happen. There is no doubt whatsoever, because there is no way it cannot happen. We hold this information as a knowing. We stand in awareness of something, positively.

When you walk into your bedroom and flip on the light switch, you don't hope that the room will light up, nor do you have faith that it will. You know that it will. There is no wondering about it; there is no doubt in your mind.

Closer to home, I know that my wife loves me. I don't believe that she loves me, I don't hope that she loves me, I know that she loves me.

When I transfer this kind of "knowing" to other subjects — God, for instance, and the goodness of Life, the awareness that Life is on my side and that Life always turns out — everything changes in my reality.

Yet getting to Absolute Knowing is the challenge. It is about rising in Consciousness to another level of Awareness — perhaps the highest level of Awareness to which one has ever ascended.

To rise to this level we must abandon the data of the Mind and embrace the knowing of the Soul. We move from "Mindata" to "Soulogic." The Soul knows what the Mind can barely conceive. In order to operate from the Level of Soul you have to be, quite literally, out of your Mind.

This is what the New Year offers you. A chance to start over. A chance to be out of your Mind. A chance to move from Hoping to Believing to Knowing. At the beginning of this new cycle, we can abandon, toss away, the data of the past year and begin again. That was last year, this is now.

We begin with a knowing that God is real and that Life is on our side. It never occurs to me that it could be otherwise. Everything is working toward my highest good — and the highest good of all Life. How can it be any other way? Evolution demands it. I know that whatever is happening is happening for the highest good because it is happening. If it were not for the highest good, it would not be happening, because Life is not self-defeating. Life is self-perpetuating, self-sustaining.

The Three Great Principles of Life, CwG tells us, are these: Life is always
1. Functional, 2. Adaptable, 3. Sustainable.

Whatever last year was for you, therefore, call it Perfect. Do not argue with it. Do not regret it or call it bad. It was as it was because Evolution demanded it. You don't have to hope that this is true, you don't have to believe that this is true, you can know that this is true. Do you know how you can know that this is true? Because it happened the way it happened.

The idea that kills us, that makes our Minds go crazy, is the idea that it should have happened another way. Obviously, it should not have, or it would have. We do not live in a universe of random chance. Nor is God sadistic, tossing us into the fire and then offering to pull us out. Our opportunity, then, is to move into Gratitude at every occurrence.

"Thank you, God, for 2017 and for everything that happened. And thank you for 2018 and everything that will happen. I know that I stand in the midst of Perfection, for that is Your World and I am in it."

Welcome to 2018. We are 5 days into it already. Five days of perfect moments, perfect outcomes, perfect You. Happy New Year everyone.

Love and Hugs,

Letters to Neale:

What about what Jesus said?

Reader question:

Dear Neale, I have a question regarding one of the CWG books. It's about Jesus. You quote, I think, a few times the Bible verse, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life', but I was wondering about the second part of that verse that says 'no one comes to the Father except through me'.

I became a Christian around 6 years ago at the age of 34 and kind of believed everything the church told me. I eventually left the church as so much of what was said didn't add up (especially the bits about God killing his beloved children that's portrayed in the Bible).

I'm of the opinion that much of what is written in the bible can't be trusted and I'm a bit in no-man’s land as regards my faith, and I'm not sure where Jesus figures in all of this anymore. Part of me is wondering, what if Jesus really is the way the truth and the life, and what if the only way to God is through him?


P.S. My Dad described God as the great illusionist yesterday, and those words will not leave me. They have resonated somewhere deep within me.


Neale Responds

Dear Debbie...It is my belief that many of the words of Jesus as contained in the Bible have been misinterpreted or misunderstood by those who wrote the passages in the Bible to begin with, or by the Council of Nicaea, in which certain Scriptural passages were given official interpretation and became formal Christian doctrine.

For more on this you may wish to follow this link to Wikipedia's article on the Council...

It is my belief, Debbie, that Jesus' intention and his message was that "no one comes to the Father (meaning God) except by doing what I am doing, going the way I am going, living and being the way I am living and being." That is why Jesus said, "Follow me." By those words I believe he meant, "Do what I am doing. Follow my example."

I do not understand him to have meant, "Turn Me into the God you should be following...and if you don't make Me your God, my Father will condemn you." That is not what I understand Jesus to have meant. But you must know that I could be wrong about all of this. I would never want to turn my truth into your truth.

For you to find and experience what is true for you, I believe you must have your own personal conversation with God. I strongly suggest it. Pray about this, Debbie, and pray deeply and often. Ask God to bring you clarity and to wrap you in Divine Wisdom as you explore, with all the purity of your heart and soul, this writing from the Bible. That is the only way to approach the Bible, Debbie...or any spiritual writing, including Conversations with God. Not with skepticism or preemptive doubt, but with an open heart and a willing and receptive mind. Your Soul will nod a huge yes inside of you — you will actually feel it — when you read something that is true for you.

Most of all, ask God to be your Friend and Helper in time of every need, not just the need to understand ancient scripture written by men no more infallible than am I.

Thank you for asking me this question, Debbie. May you have the experience that God goes with you and is expressed through you, all the days of your life,

Short Takes


CWG on Relationships

A three-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 has only once before presented 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 9th through Sunday, March 11th, 2018

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.
