5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Individual Books–As a Set, Replace the Bible

Neale Donald Walsch

See my review of Conversations with God : An Uncommon Dialogue (Book 1) for comments that apply to all three books. These books as a set replace the Bible as a foundation for Being with God as Community in Heaven on Earth.

Book 2 reiterates the common theme, forget religions, have faith, do love, BE the light.

Fastest way to find God is to find one another–ALL of us.

Fastest way to stop evil and hiding from evil is to tell the truth.

Seek, know, accept, praise, and embrace the truth at all times.

Humanity is ready for a new paradigm of communal belief in goodness. Everything we are experiencing today is an opportunity to remember and restore One from Many.

Religion is the opposite of spirituality.

Soul creates, mind reacts.

Energy at the root of everything.

USA in decline because religions have become falsely righteous and intolerant, divisive.

Lesson of Hitler: group consciousness that speaks of separation and superiority leads to a loss of compassion and virtual genocide.

LOTS of coverage of sex, almost a virtual manual for rediscovering the joy and love that should be the foundation for sex. Enjoy it, don’t hide it, don’t raise kids to be repressed about it.

Education is a mess, teaching knowledge (rote memorization of the past) instead of wisdom (learning to learn, learning to share). Teaching children WHAT to think instead of HOW to think.

Must teach three core concepts: Awareness, Honesty, Responsibility.

Rudolph Steiner and the Waldorf School are on the right track.

Need to achieve societal shift in consciousness–love, family, unity–at all levels from neighborhood to globe.

As of 1994, we are spending $1 trillion a year on war (while peace and prosperity for all would only cost $230 billion a year according to Medard Gabel and other authorities such as E. O. Wilson).

Eliminate money or make it completely transparent. Money is what allows hoarding, theft, and related evils such as corruption, all of which deprive the community and the commons of optimal stewardship. This resonates with the work of the Natural Capitalism Institute and the Open Money pioneers.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

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.

Key points:

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.

On the basis of this book I am also buying and reading:

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Three Individual Books Instead of This One, October 16, 2007

Neale Donald Walsch

I bought this book, thinking that price and consolidation would be better, but in retrospect I wish I had bought the three individual books for their color covers and ease of carrying one at a time on trips, which is when I do most of my reading.

I’d like to thank the two guys in the Middle East that recommended this book to me. I have provided a detailed review for each of the three books at the links below.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Individual Books in Order–Replaces Bible

October 15, 2007

Neale Donald Walsch

I regret not paying better attention to the reviewer of the collected set (one book with three parts and no covers). Do buy the books individually for a more distributed appreciation.

This will sound like sacrilege to many, but in my view these three books in combination replace the Bible as the foundation work for the future of Humanity as God in Community on Earth. There is so much common sense in all three books that I am just blown away.

Although I am 10-15 years late in appreciating the cultural creatives, integral consciousness, one from many, I sense an imminent renaissance of humanity, aided by the amoral wickedness of Dick Cheney and those foolish enough to obey his unconstitutional orders. These three books are our manual for re-establishing Humanity in Community.

Book 1 introduces a God who loves us unconditionally, whom we can have faith in, and who does not need to bloated religious bureaucracies of fear-mongering, hate-mongering, sexually-inhibited priests, imams, and rabbis (some exceptions not withstanding).

The bottom line is this: you can live in fear or live in love–unconditional love. Fear is exclusive, love in inclusive.

Here are the notes I kept:

* Core values are truth, patience, open mind, open heart.
* Arts are inspiration and help spirituality grow and be shared
* Feelings are the language of the soul
* God is found in the highest thought, clearest word, grandest feeling
* Receive and embrace God directly, not via false intermediaries
* Knowing, experiencing, being
* Point of life is to remember the One and rewind back from fragmentation
* You, not God, determines outcomes–live the change you wish to see (Gandhi)
* We choose heaven or hell on earth
* Only by accepting responsibility for ALL poverty and other high-level threats to humanity can we resolve them.
* Judgment fragments and lessens community
* There are no coincidences
* You attract what you fear through emotions
* Choose love, end war–Humanity is losing patience (see Blessed Unrest)
* Sex with joy and sympathy is the ultimate form of love
* Money is the ultimate divider, irrelevant to achieving peace & prosperity
* Stop accepting “original sin” and start remembering you are one with God.
* Passion is in the doing
* Freedom is living life without expectations
* When you are so good you no longer need God, this is God’s greatest moment.
* Religions that stress damnation are flat out WRONG. Not possible to offend God, whose love is unconditional.
* Priests and others are a major part of the schism of demanding religions.
* Purpose of relationships is to have another with whom you can share your completeness.
* Love is BEING, not fulfilling a NEED.
* God asks that you love yourself and always make the highest choice.
* Act before thinking; emphasize being, follow a calling in life.
* Gratitude in advance–reciprocal altruism, is the highest path.
* Worry can be fatal. Stop worrying.
