    a courageous acknowledgement of who we really are

    As an integral part of the 'all that is', I have the power to transcend the behaviors driven by the reptilian and mammalian brains to create my experience and resulting reality, consciously and by choice: 'Think only what you choose to experience. Say only what you choose to make real. Do only what you choose to demonstrate as your highest reality.' - one of many useful insights from 'What God Wants' which refresh material which may have been previously learned and integrated, but can never be heard enough. This book is particularly useful to disentangle the reader from polarized religious thinking by means of a heartfelt appeal to our rationality, while still honoring the value of faith traditions to our spiritual development. For these and all other audiences I highly recommend it! I encourage you to get the audio book as the option to simply listen with closed eyes in a meditative state can be a welcome alternative to reading, and Neale's expressive voice adds an emotional dimension to the work. Based on Neale's explicit references throughout this book, I've ordered related material from the following authors which will serve to deepen the hues of Neale Donald Walsch's painting, in our relationship to our experience of 'now', and our power to manifest reality through intent: * Jerry & Esther Hicks and Abraham * Eckhart Tolle * Byron Katie - Perhaps the most revered of Sufi mystics, Rumi, offered this advice: God has given us a dark wine so potent that, drinking it, we leave the two worlds / God has put into the form of hashish a power to deliver the taster from self-consciousness / God has made sleep so that it erases every thought / God made Majnun love Layla so much that just her dog would cause confusion in him / There are thousands of wines that can take over our minds / Don't think all ecstasies are the same! / Jesus was lost in his love for God / His donkey was drunk with barley / Drink from the presence of saints, not from those other jars / Every object, every being, is a jar full of delight / Be a conoisseur, and taste with caution / Any wine will get you high / Judge like a king, and choose the purest, the ones unadulterated with fear, or some urgency about 'what's needed.' / Drink the wine that moves you as a camel moves when it's been untied, and is just ambling about. --- Mathnawi IV, 2683-96 The Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks - I think you'll find Neale's message fits the bill for quality

    I remember

    I REMEMBER. As a child, I remember when the Bible, pastors, or priests, or religious teachers misquoted him. I knew they spoke lies and myths used to create fear. Jesus Never codemned anyone and did not believe in Hell. Hell was made up long after his death / ressurection to control members of (whatever) religion. He said 'Every one of us is a child of God'. This was not just words, he meant it. No one is excluded, and never will be. In the Bible, God said that 'I am All that Is, All that Was , All that will Be. That means Everything in Creation is God. So people, when you remember what Jesus said, remember - to paraphrase - the person you love or despise is you, Because there is only God.

    I loved this book.It explores all of our beliefs and throws them

    I loved this book.It explores all of our beliefs and throws them back at you. I think we all share a common bond,we are all one and our belief systems need to change , in order to better represent our true inner feelings.What were your personal thoughts as you grew up? Neale Donald Wlasch shares  concur with many of them.The whole CWG series should be read.You will see yourselves.Try it.My wife and I are sold.Thanks for listening..

    What God Wants

    Nothing. That is the message of all of Walsch's writings and it is an inspiring one. All of the series, "Conversations With God", of which this is a part gives new voice to the words of all the holy books and saints the world has produced. In the series you find intelligence, compassion, understanding and love without the separation anxiety most of us have learned.
    Give this book and any other by Walsch a try. They are easy; even addictive to read and very satisfying.

    A GREAT WAY FOR NEW-COMERS TO CWG MATERIAL!!

    I had already owned a copy of this book and read it before I attended the author's annual ReCreating Your Self Retreat up in Oregon.

    He then recommended this book for those who were interested in delving into the Conversations with God material. So, I purchased another copy for my family and friends to start with.

    I would recommend this book to ALL PEOPLE, EVERYWHERE! Especially those looking to get into the CWG material afterward.
