Let's Be Friends (Part 2)



A Note from Neale...


My Dear Friends...

From last week:

So yes, be friends with your spouse. Be friends with your children. Be friends with your relatives. Be friends with your neighbors and your fellow workers and your acquaintances. And yes, even be friends with your enemies. And most of all...be friends with yourself!

That may be the hardest thing to do of all. And so we'll take a close look at that next week.


= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Okay, so now it IS "next week," and we get a chance to look at that.

It is true that being one's own best friend can be one of the hardest things in life to do. In my own experience it involved something along the lines of a three-step process, which felt like...

1. Forgiveness
2. Acceptance
3. Celebration


My road to self-friendship began with self-forgiveness. It proceeded to self-acceptance, and it ended with self-celebration. Self-forgiveness was, for me, the biggest challenge.

I have done a lot of things in my life that I am not happy about. I found that I thought about these things all the time. And the more I thought about them, the worse I felt, of course. And also, the more I thought about them, the more I thought about them. Thought begets thought. Emotions give birth to more emotions of the same species. My mind was having its way with me.

I moved into heavy guilt about a lot of my past choices and behaviors. It didn't seem to do me any good to say that "I'll never do that again." What's past is past and can't be undone. So there was nothing to BE done...except live with it. Just "life with" the guilt.

Even if I "cleaned it up" by going to the people I felt I'd hurt and apologizing and offering to do whatever I could to make amends, I still couldn't off-load the guilt. I just couldn't forgive myself.

Then I had my conversation with God, and everything changed. I learned, first, that I was spotless and innocent in the eyes of The Divine. God looked upon me as I would look upon a 4-year-old child. I simply didn't know what I was doing; I simply didn't understand. Even if I really did understand, I actually didn't. I mean, I understood part of it. I grasped a little bit of it. I certainly knew the difference between Right and Wrong, but I didn't understand the Whole Story. I didn't know who I was, where I was, why I was where I was, or what I was trying to do here. No one had given me the answers to life's Four Fundamental Questions. No one had even asked me the questions. I didn't even know these questions existed.

Then, further into my conversation with God, I was told something even more shocking, more stunning to my system. "There is," God said to me, "no such thing as Right and Wrong."

As you can imagine, this overturned my whole value system (not that I was paying much attention to it anyway...). I had to start over from scratch in viewing and evaluating the choices and behaviors of my life.

Letters to Neale:


What is the 'right' thing to do for our mother?


Reader question:


Dear Neale,

Please respond to my family asap. we are becoming divided re: the care, comfort & well-being of our 89-year-old mother in a nursing home. she is very ill & has been for a very long time w/ advanced Alzheimers and many other medical ailments - but has gotten progressively worse.

She has just had her toe amputated and has contracted aspirating pneumonia in the hospital. now, back at the nursing home - we have been 'told' not to give her liquids (esp water) w/ a straw, only a spoon? (and thickened). mom has had an aversion to utensils & had been taking very little (if any) food as a result. a straw is the only way she takes any sustenance & not very much of it this way.

The nursing home has 'battled' us consistently w/policy, rules & regulations which we feel are compromising our mother's well-being. my father is even scared to get in 'trouble' if we don't do things 'their' way. we don't even have any communication w/ her doctor & care plans & meds have been ordered & changed w/out our knowledge or even 1st being consulted.

Now, some of us want to remove all meds & some don't & the family is becoming divided. most of us feel she should have whatever she wants, whatever way she takes it, whenever she wants it. according to 'their' rules - when mom wakes up & I am there & want to give her water - i can't – because she is on 'their choking list' & we must be in the dining room in front of nurses & staff. so we are supposed to get her up & dressed & all, to the dining room or call & wait for someone to come to give her water? her tongue is shriveled up, her lips are stuck together & i can't give my mother water?

Mom had been in mental anguish for the longest time but now has a calm about her, even though she is mostly unresponsive. her 'time' may be coming soon but she has clung to this life w/ an amazing resilience. her little body is so frail. it has been so hard & sad to witness her life going on like this. we just want her to be happy & give her whatever she may need, but we all can't agree on what is best for her.

I have asked God for help but have been unable to come up w/ the 'right' course of action. we have sought help from hospice, the nursing home, priests, friends, family council, the media & advocate groups. but we can't come to any conclusions or agreement on what is best for our mother. please give us your input.

thank you, Neale! with much fondness - tony jr.

 
 

Neale Responds


Dear Tony,

I must be old fashioned, but I can tell you that if I were the husband of that lady I would want no one deciding what is best for her but me... she and I were there before anyone else existed. We began the journey together and we end the journey together, and nothing and no one comes between us, not even our own children, who we brought into this world, by the way...

I would say to my children, “Excuse me, but even before you were, I was...”

So I guess what I am saying here is, unless there is some mental failing on his part, your Mother’s husband should be the one making these decisions—whether you children like what he is deciding or not. This is not a “family decision,” this is a husband and life partner’s decision.

You have not said in your note to me that your Father has diminished mental capacities...only that he is “scared” to “get in trouble” if things are not done the way the nursing home wants them done. That bit of apprehension does not disqualify your Dad from making the major decisions regarding his wife and your Mother, Tony, unless I live in another world...

Give your Father his due and stop complicating things for him. Support him in whatever decisions he makes. That is the way to make it easier for him—and, incidentally, for all the children, too. You can disagree with your Father, but he is still your Father—and, perhaps more significantly, the husband and life partner of the woman we are talking about here. When she was younger and more herself, to whom would your mother, herself, turn for advice?

Have I missed something?

Is there something here that you are not telling me, such as, “My mother hated my father and would never ask him for the time of day, much less what to do now..."

From a spiritual point of view, there is no “right” and “wrong” here...so if you are looking for simple advice, the only counsel I can give you is...if your mother herself is now at peace, with whatEVER is going on, why are you allowing yourself to become so agitated? And if you think that she is suffering so (even though she apparently has no experience of it—which, by the way, means that she is not), then all the children may want to pitch in and either get her a private nurse or do whatever else is necessary to give her better care than you feel she is receiving where she now resides.

I am puzzled as to how it can be that you have no contact with her doctor. Does he practice in another state? On the moon? From an offshore tax shelter? What stops you children and your Dad from simply making a joint appointment and all going over to see him at his office to discuss your Mother’s meds and other aspects of her care? Does he refuse to see you? Does he cancel your appointments? Does he evade you in the hallways? Has this man been reported to the County Medical Society and the AMA? Or...could the problem be on your family's end, do you think?

Anyway, Tony, from the who-says-that-I-know-anything department, those are my observations. I send you my best thoughts during what I know is a challenging time for you and your family. Send up a prayer to God, Tony. A simple one. "Please, dear God, help my mother as she makes her final journey Home." Then be at peace, and rest your mind if you can. I know this time is not easy.

Love,



[Editor’s Note: Tony let us know that his mother has made her transition. We send our blessings to her and to all of Tony’s family.]

The Home with God Retreat

Sept 21 - 23, 2018

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.


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 bestselling 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.  

Over the course of 3 days, 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.


DATES: Friday, September 21st through Sunday, September 23rd, 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.
