Buy the Individual Books–Replaces the Bible
October 16, 2007
Neale Donald Walsch
See my reviews of Books 1 and 2 for the full context of this excellent work. The set replaces the Bible and other convoluted religious “rule sets” and anecdotes, with a single sensible dialog with God that all of us can achieve. Religions of hate and division are part of the problem and the opposite of spiritual communion of man, one with God in community.
Conversations with God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 1)
Conversations With God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 2)
Book 3 was harder for me, in part because it deals with the afterlife, rising from the dead, and psychic powers, while I am more focused on the practical challenge of eradicating the ten high-level threats to humanity in the next 20 years.
Still, plenty of food for thought here, and I will probably come back to Book 3 for a second reading at some point.
Society that marginalizes the elderly is destined for collapse.
Young should bear children, but they should be raised and taught by the elders.
Highly evolved civilizations understand that sharing is the key to plentitude and peace, and that no actions are shameful, competition is divisive and harmful.
Paradigm IS shifting.
Two basic principles: 1) We are all one; 2) There is Enough for All.
The trinity of body (emotion), mind (logic), and spirit (intuition) is repeatedly stressed. I am constantly reminded by this book of Gandhi's phrase, “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
More on sex, God is sex, sex is love, sex is sharing, sex is union.
Past 100 years has taken Humanity from the 6 yard line to the 12 yard line in relation to a notional 100-year field of possibilities.
