This is a 5 Part Meditation with Neale Donald Walsch .. Relax and Enjoy the Journey ..
Conversations with God (CwG) is a sequence of books written by Neale Donald Walsch. It was written as a dialogue in which Walsch asks questions and God answers. The first book of the Conversations with God series, Conversations with God, Book 1: An Uncommon Dialogue, was published in 1995 and became a publishing phenomenon, staying on the New York Times Best-Sellers List for 137 weeks. The succeeding volumes in the nine book series also appeared prominently on the List.
In an interview with Larry King, Walsch described the inception of the books as follows: at a low period in his life, Walsch wrote an angry letter to God asking questions about why his life wasn’t working. After writing down all of his questions, he heard a voice over his right shoulder say: “Do you really want an answer to all these questions or are you just venting?” Though when he turned around he saw no one there, Walsch felt answers to his questions filling his mind and decided to write them down. The ensuing dialogue became the Conversations with God books. When asked in a recent interview how does he ‘open up’ to God these days, Neale stated “I am reaching out to touch others with this information. When I reach out and touch others with this information I reconnect immediately with the divine presence.”
Basis of the dialogue
Containing nearly 3000 pages of material in total, the series presents a large number of ideas. The second and third books in the original trilogy deal with political and social issues.
CwG’s basic messages
In Friendship with God, Walsch writes that God presents four concepts which are central to the entire dialogue:
We are all one.
There’s nothing we have to do.
Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.
Existence is essentially non dual in nature. At the highest level there is no separation between anything and there is only one of us; there is only God, and everything is God. The second statement, following from the first, means that we, in this seeming existence, lack nothing and if we choose to realize it, we have enough of whatever we think we need (or the means to create it) within us. The third statement combines the first two to conclude that God, being all there is and is thus always sufficient unto Itself, has no need of anything and therefore has no requirements of humanity. The final concept puts an end to our need to always be right. Given that we have and are everything, and there’s nothing we have to do, there are an infinite number of ways to experience this, not just the one way we may have chosen so far.
According to the books, God recommends many economic and social changes if people want to make a more functional, adaptable, and sustainable world, it recommends that more attention should focus on the environment. The conversations also speak of reincarnation and the existence of life on other planets.
Biography of Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The Conversations with God series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
Neale has written 28 books on spirituality and its practical application in everyday life. Titles in the With God series include: Conversations with God, Books I—III; Friendship with God; Communion with God; The New Revelations; Tomorrow ‘s God; What God Wants; and Home with God. Seven of the books in that series reached the New York Times Bestseller List, CWG-Book 1 occupying that list for over two-and-a-half years. His most recent books are When Everything Changes Change Everything (2010), The Storm Before the Calm (2011), and The Only Thing That Matters, released in October, 2012, and What God Said, released in October 2013. His latest book is titled God’s Message to the World: You ‘ve got me all wrong, released in October 2014 from Rainbow Ridge Books.
Conversations with God has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale has created several outreach projects, including the CWG Foundation, an educational organization working to share the messages around the world; CWG for Parents, offering tools for those who wish to bring the CWG message to children; Humanity’s Team, a global spiritual activism movement seeking to create an Evolution Revolution around the message that We Are All One; the Changing Change Network, a spiritual helping outreach to persons facing major life challenges; and The Global Conversation, an internet newspaper generating a worldwide discussion of CWG principles as they relate to daily life. All of these platforms are accessible at the internet gateway site, www.CWGPortal.com, and all are dedicated to helping the world move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.
Neale’s work has taken him from the steps of Machu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone—from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul—Neale has experienced a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.
Neale has a home in southern Oregon where he lives with his wife, the American poet Em Claire (www.emclairepoet.com). They travel extensively throughout the world, speaking to audiences and sharing the messages of the Conversations with God material.
