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”
