Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations With God series and many other books, began his communication with God in 1992. It was during a difficult time of his life when everything (personally, professionally and emotionally) was going wrong. He began to write an angry letter to God questioning Him on why nothing in his life was working and when he had finished, to his surprise, the pen began moving on its own and an answer came through. A conversation had begun. Over time Neale asked many questions and he was told that it would become a series of three books. The first of these 'Conversations With God Book 1 - An Uncommon Dialogue' was published in 1995. Since then Neale Donald Walsch has written many other books and a movie 'Conversations With God' was made of his story in 2007.
Quotes from Neale Donald Walsch are sorted into the following categories:
A person can either do something in order to 'be happy,' or a person can start the day by simply deciding to 'be happy,' and the things that person will do will automatically reflect that.
Feeling is the language of the soul. If you want to know what's true for you about something, look to how you're feeling about it.
Feelings are sometimes difficult to discover, and often even more difficult to acknowledge. Yet hidden in your deepest feelings is your highest truth.
It is you who are choosing, in any moment, to be happy or choosing to be sad, or choosing to be angry, or forgiving, or enlightened, or whatever. You are choosing.
Teach your children that they need nothing exterior to themselves to be happy - no person, place or thing - and that true happiness is found within.
Look to see what you most desire in your life,
then ride that feeling all the way to creation.
All you see in your world is the outcome of your idea about it.
Do you want your life to truly take off?...
Then change your idea about it. About you.
Think, speak and act as the God You Are.
Go into the heart of love and come from that place in all your choices and decisions... and you will find peace.
If there is some aspect of creation you find you do not enjoy,
bless it and simply change it.
Call forth a new reality.
Think a new thought. Say a new word. Do a new thing.
There are no victims in the universe, only creators.
The Masters who have walked this planet all knew this.
There is only one emotion, one energy, in the Universe...
the energy, the emotion that we call Love.
When you KNOW this, everything changes.
Thought is the first level of creation. Next comes the word. Everything you say is a thought expressed. It is creative and sends forth creative energy into the universe. Words are the second level of creation. Next comes action.
You are always and forever in the moment of pure creation.
So create who and what you are, and then experience that.
You are always in the process of creating. Every moment, every minute, every day. You are a big creation machine and you are turning out a new manifestation literally as fast as you can think.
You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you,
but to create it.
You are creating your reality every minute.
Your own life is the way it is because of you,
and the choices you have made, or failed to make.
You will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack, and your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience - wanting - in your reality.
The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude. When you thank God in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you in effect, acknowledge that it is there...in effect. Thankfulness is thus the most powerful statement to God - an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered. Therefore never supplicate... Appreciate.
It is not God's function to create or uncreate, the circumstances or conditions in your life. God created you, in the image and likeness of God. You have created the rest, through the power that God has given you.
Know that all times are Holy, that every religion holds truth, that each tradition is sacred, and that it is in the simple sharing of love that we make our beliefs come alive, and our dreams come true.
Let this Christmas Day remind us that Christ came to invite us to offer love to ALL humankind and to open the door of God's Kingdom to Every soul.
Life in the physical realm is glorious, and its purpose is to bring you happiness through the awareness of who you really are. So go into this magnificent world of your creation, and make your lifetime an extraordinary statement and experience of the most glorious idea that you have ever had about yourself.
Life is an ongoing, never-ending process of re-creation.
Life proceeds out of your intention. Your true intention is revealed by your actions, and your actions are determined by your true intention. As with everything in life (and life itself), it is a circle.
One's spirituality is about one's deepest personal understanding of and interactions with Life and God... whatever those may be.
The best and quickest way to achieve all our goals and to live the life of which we have dreamed is to assist others in achieving their goals and living the life of which they have dreamed.
The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery,
but a process of creation.
You are not discovering yourself,
but creating yourself anew.
Seek not to find out who you are,
seek to determine who you want to be.
The purpose of life is to know yourself,
create yourself, experience yourself as who you really are.
There is no other reason to do anything.
The question 'Who am I?' is not an idle one. How you answer the question will determine how you live the rest of your life. It will determine the quality of your life.
What you have carried in your mind about the world is what you will see around the world. What you carry in your mind about your life is what you will see in your life.
Words may help you understand something, but experience allows you to know. Never ever trade your own experience for someone else's words about anything that is really important... like God, for instance, or Love, or what is true about another.
You are always connected to Source. Wherever you are, wherever you go, you are always connected to Divine Wisdom, Divine Intelligence and Divine Love.
You are doing something very sacred here, something very daring, during your life upon the earth. You are defining yourself, and then creating yourself anew, in each golden moment of now.
You are not on this planet to produce anything with your body. You are on this planet to produce something with your Soul. Your body is simply and merely the tool of your Soul.
