Sharing some Spiritual Thoughts and Principles from Neale Donald Walsh’s ‘Conversations with God’ (Part One)
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
This article (in point form) was largely based upon notes I’ve taken from Neale Donald Walsh’s series of books ‘Conversations with God’, whilst studying the link between the human mind and spirituality. Whilst I may not agree with all of Walsch’s views and beliefs on the concept of a “Higher Power’, I’m sharing this piece to hopefully stimulate thinking and discussion on these concepts from Walsh’s personal ideas and beliefs on the ‘spiritual journey’.
Life is not a process of discovery – it’s a process of CREATION.
Await nothing; but inspiringly create everything you choose and desire in life. I see God as co-Creator and observer of our lives (like a “sleeping partner”). God does the watching without judgement. We keep waiting for God to tell us, show us, and God keeps waiting for us to show Him/Her/It. We’re waiting for the One who waits for us.
Nothing has meaning, except the meaning we give it.
You create your own reality – always go with your own deepest feelings, your deepest truth.
Feelings are the ‘language of the soul’. A thing has no purpose in itself. Every purpose for any thing is given to it by you and me.
When you don’t know what to do, or what course to take? Just let go and let it be right…
for now that you don’t have the answer. Create the space for the answer to occur to you.
We determine our fate by the thoughts we entertain collectively. Our collective consciousness creates a great deal of our individual reality. All the time we are creating.
Jesus believed in the value and worth of every human being and his life showed the world a God of love. He died and rose again, so that we know the truth about him, and hence about us. His act was meant as a demonstration of Who We Really Are: ie. living out who he really was, what he saw as his ‘divine purpose’ – acting out and living his life mission, what he was called to do and BE with total commitment and integrity…and especially love. Jesus was a divine master, who possessed absolute understanding of the truth – the truth about himself and about God. He wished to share the truth with all the world. Thus he said, “I and the Father are one”. We are brothers. We were all made in the image and likeness of God and Jesus kept trying to tell us so…but few people believed him.
We can think we are in a living hell, and then we can change our perception about it… and the entire perception changes for us.
You are not “supposed” to do anything. Eg. tithing.
You have no purpose, until you assign it one. It’s a CHOICE we make. We are waiting for God to show us our purpose, and God is waiting for us to show Him our purpose.
There is only one reason to do anything: to announce and declare, express and experience, fulfil and become Who You Really Are.
All people come to the truth when they are ready. Just watch and wait.
(My comment: But first you have to ASK God to give you deepest truths and then Infinite Source will deliver (through the subconscious mind or “God-gate”, as my micro-biologist friend, Andy calls it): “Knock and He will answer the door and invite you in.”)
Things can always be made better. The dream never ends and the mission is never truly accomplished (Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King). God’s dream is that we will all one day be completely realised – to be our “real selves”. To achieve happiness, serenity and a feeling of peace about life, when we become detached from results ( In my case I’m just writing about ‘God and Formula One’ and don’t think much about the outcome, ie. selling books (or what people may think – crazy!), but really enjoying the writing process).
Just do and more importantly, BE.
“Be the very best person YOU can be with “loads of” FUN along the journey of life.
“When I let go of who (and what) I think I am, then I become all that I am capable of being. Enjoy just being YOU, as you ride the rapids, er sorry, water-falls of life.”

LOVE is the greatest and most powerful force in the world;
so shine your own unique bright light on an often darkened world …in a spirit of living at the highest level of humanity.
“When the world is filled with love, people’s hearts are overflowing with hope.”
“YOU be the change you wish to see in others.
Then in changing YOUR world you help change THE world… for the better”

Reblogged this on Sharing Some Thoughts on Jesus Christ.
I am sure this post has touched all the internet
people, its really really pleasant paragraph on building up new blog.
CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT (many hundreds of thousands on this blog already…true!) …so hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!). Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share.
Am having to remove many and so sorry can’t reply individually, but DO try to read as many as possible daily

“As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
– craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)
“Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.
“Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
“Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
and you may even hit the stars.”
– craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)
“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonardo da Vinci
“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or
Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well
that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.”
– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Whilst we can (and should) celebrate our differences *, let not our beliefs divide us, but rather let our shared humanity define and unite us… as citizens on and sharing planet earth.”
* after all, it’s what makes us unique, as individuals, nations and cultures!

Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing
“If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”
“Let not our different beliefs divide us, but let the Spirit of our shared humanity define and unite us.”
Thank you for another great post. Where else may just anybody get that type
of information in such an ideal means of writing?
I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the look for such info.
Thanks for the suggestion; however just to say that I have no technical knowledge, time, nor real inclination to spend more time on my many many blogs. You wouldn’t believe how this blog simply developed from simple postings of my writings and various ideas. However it’s taking a lot of my time and I really need to devote myself mainly to writing my various books.
Thanks for the understanding and all the best
