Samtal med Gud : en ovanlig dialog. [Bok 1] av Neale Donald Walsch

  1. 00
    Ett oskrivet blad : och andra myter om människans natur av Steven Pinker (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: I’d give Neal a break, a fire burned all of his belongings (early 1990s). A snippet from Pinker’s book:


    The longest-standing right-wing opposition to the sciences of human nature comes from the religious sectors of the coalition, especially Christian fundamentalism. Anyone who doesn’t believe in evolution is certainly not going to believe in the evolution of the mind, and anyone who believes in an immaterial soul is certainly not going to believe that thought and feeling consist of information processing in the tissues of the brain.

    The religious opposition to evolution is fueled by several moral fears. Most obviously, the fact of evolution challenges the literal truth of the creation story in the Bible and thus the authority that religion draws from it. As one creationist minister put it, “If the Bible gets it wrong in biology, then why should I trust the Bible when it talks about morality and salvation?”

    But the opposition to evolution goes beyond a desire to defend biblical literalism. Modern religious people may not believe in the literal truth of every miracle narrated in the Bible, but they do believe that humans were designed in God’s image and placed on earth for a larger purpose—namely, to live a moral life by following God’s commandments. If humans are accidental products of the mutation and selection of chemical replicators, they worry, morality would have no foundation and we would be left mindlessly obeying biological urges. One creationist, testifying to this danger in front of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, cited the lyrics of a rock song: “You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals / So let’s do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel” After the 1999 lethal rampage by two teenagers at Columbine High School in Colorado, Tom Delay, the Republican Majority Whip in the House of Representatives, said that such violence is inevitable as long as “our school systems teach children that they are nothing but glorified apes, evolutionized out of some primordial soup of mud.

Not my kind of read, but interesting and if you have extra time, worth considering.

"Belief in revelation is a great temptation for those who prefer a shortcut, who want to leapfrog the tedious labor (as they deem it) of thinking."

Pantheism = all things are manifestations of divine substance, without a personal God

Nondualism = all things are illusions since there is nothing but the divine substance

Stoicism (a popular form of pantheism) = what's happening is merely what's happening. How you feel about it is another matter. Every catastrophe is a welcome opportunity to grow more virtuous. (p. 105 of conversations w god) similar to Christian Science denial of reality of pain.

There is no coincidence, and nothing happens by accident. Every event and adventure is called to your self by your self in order that you might create and experience who you really are (p. 51-52) is stoicism through the all-permeating Logos of God crossed with non-dualism as ones nature is the same as the divine Brahman.... All to remember our own divine identity and origin.

The goal then is the experience of self discovery, not simply the knowledge one is thereby discovering. Much like the great Sufi mystics who taught that God created Man, the heavenly Man of Light, in order to behold his own glory. As individuals become aware of their ultimate identity with Allah and seek to experience it again, they grow closer to the divine prototype oh humanity (the Prophet Muhammad being the perfect historical manifestation) they come to contemplate through the inner eye to behold the glory from which they stem and on which they partake, and in that moment, God knows himself through their eyes... The most profound depth of conv w God

Your asking is a statement of lack, and yor saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience - wanting - in your reality. (p. 11) Instead of "I want success,' think 'I have success."



"Belief in revelation is a great temptation for those who prefer a shortcut, who want to leapfrog the tedious labor (as they deem it) of thinking."

I have a problem with someone saying God doesn't have any problem or differentiate between good and evil and he loves everyone the same and that Hitler is in heaven.
If God didn't have a problem with it then why did he call Eve out about what she was hiding? etc. etc. etc.
And even if you don't want to bring the Bible into this; according to this author (who may be trying to start his own religion?) I don't feel good about his feel good religion. According to the first paragraph I can go on a killing spree just like hitler and still go to heaven.
His religion is not for me. ( )

> L'auteur dit ici publier le texte d'une conversation qu'il a eue avec Dieu, et où ce dernier lui explique les rouages de l'existence. Cette prémisse donne place à un dialogue unique en son genre amenant réflexions mais aussi soulagement devant la dure vie.
— Ce livre est tout à fait à propos dans un monde où spiritualité rime avec religion et pensée unique. La spiritualité semble être évincée de la vie de la plupart des gens en réaction à des Églises dogmatiques, en retard sur leur monde. On ne traite ici d'aucune structure, d'aucune obligation, mais seulement de l'Humain face à l'Infini. --Simon Lamontagne (ICI.Radio-Canada.ca)

Did he have a conversation with God? I dunno, but at least this imagining of God is more plausible than most of the others I know of. ( )

I read this marvellous book in Danish which made it a bit difficult for me to get an overview of it when writing this review.

The book, and the whole Conversations with God series, is filled with wisdom, so that there was no doubt in my mind that it was dictated by “God”, or at least came from a high, high source.

One day in 1992 when Neale Donald Walsch was going through a difficult period, he decided to write a letter to God containing a lot of angry questions about his life. Great was his surprise when suddenly his pen began to move by itself and he started getting answers from God, Later he said he heard an inner voice dictating it.

Thus began this illuminating work.

God told Neale that he talks to everyone constantly, but not everyone listens.

Feelings/emotions are the language of the soul.

As a means of communication, God uses both emotions, thought and images from experiences. When these don’t work, He uses words.

Your highest thoughts, clearest words and strongest feelings always come from God.

The highest thought is the one containing joy. The clearest words are those containing truth. The strongest feeling is that which you call love.

The most powerful messenger is experience, and this we generally ignore.

God has given us free will and he never forces us to do anything.

The first “shocking” statement God makes to Neale is that as regards the nature of God, the church fathers, theologians, rabbis, priests and the Bible are NOT authoritative sources. Ha, ha! I like this.

God has no specific form, though he can assume any form he wishes.

He reveals himself by means of our inner experiences (I will attest to that).

He tells us that the correct form of prayer is never a begging prayer but a thankful prayer. (This is what the New Thought Church and the like have been telling us for years.)

We should never beg but appreciate. We should have faith that God gives us everything we ask for.

God is the observer, not the creator. He created us in his image. He does not interfere in how we live our lives.

God doesn’t care what we do.

We have created the mythological being we call the Devil.

Life is not a school; we are here to remember who we are.

God knew that in order for love to exist, the opposite, fear, had to exist too.

God divided himself into all of us so as to experience Himself. Thus he gave us the same power to create as He Himself. We are made of the same substance and have the same qualities and abilities, including the ability to create physical reality out of nothing.

God cannot experience Himself except through us. He has given us the ability to experience ourselves as Him.

We are divine parts of the divine whole. Our work here on Earth is not to learn but to remember who we are.

We do not become ill without it being at least in part our fault, and we can become well again in a moment just by deciding to become well. (Easier said than done!)

God does nothing to stop negative events because He would then be taking away our free will. It is up to us to change things. There are no victims in the Universe, only creators. Every soul is a master.

Pain is a result of wrong thoughts. A master can make the worst pain disappear. Pain stems from judgement of something. Remove the judgement and the pain will disappear.

There is no “should” or “should not” in God’s world. Do what you want to do. But don’t judge or condemn, because you don’t know why something happens or what its purpose is. What you condemn condemns you, and what you judge you will become one day. And bless everything, for everything is created by God.

Hell is to experience the worst conceivable outcome of what you choose, decide and create. Hell is the opposite of joy.

God assures us that the (negative) experiences after death which we have constructed in our fear-based theology do not exist. (Though some of those who experience NDEs have temporarily experienced a “place” reminiscent of Hell – they can quickly move on to a better place, if they ask for help, for example.) It is ourselves who create the experience of Hell every time we separate ourselves from our own highest thoughts of ourselves.

We are not punished by God but experience natural outcomes of our actions, What we experience as punishment or what we would call “evil” is nothing but a law of nature that comes into play. (I was thinking this just the other day in connection with someone I know having a bad experience.)

There are no coincidences. All incidents and experiences are created by ourselves so we can experience who we really are.

We are the creator of our own reality and life cannot give us other opportunities than those we believe it can.

God says that he has sent humanity teacher after teacher. We don’t listen to his teachers, we kill them.

The first law is that we can be, do and have everything that we can imagine.

The second law is that we attract what we fear.

The laws are simple:

1) Thoughts create.
2) Fear attracts.
3) Love is all there is.

The purpose of a love relationship is not to have another person who can perfect you, but have another with whom you can share your perfection.

Our focus on the partner, our obsession with the partner is what makes the relationship fail.

All illness is created by ourselves. People smoke and wonder why they get cancer. They eat animals and thus animal fat and wonder why they get blood clots. They are angry their whole lives and wonder why they get heart attacks. They compete with others and wonder why they get strokes.

Most people worry themselves to death. Worrying is meaningless.Health improves as soon as worrying stops. Hate is an extremely harmful state. It poisons the body. Fear is excessive worrying. Worry, hate, fear attack the body at the cellular level. It is impossible to have a healthy body under these conditions. All disease is first created by the mind.

There is nothing in life that is not first a thought.

You can heal yourself by changing the way you think,

You don’t train your body so it gets weak from lack of use. You don’t eat proper food, which makes you even weaker. You fill your body with toxins and the most absurd substances that are supposed to be food. You read this information and return to the poor treatment of your body. Why? Because you don’t have the will to live.

The body was not supposed to consume alcohol. It weakens the mind.

Our bodies were intended to last forever.

God says:

“You are my body. Everything I experience I experience through you. Jesus of Nazareth said, ‘I and the father are one flesh’”.

God says that we are already God, but just don’t know it.

This book presents information on much, much more than I have touched on here. I highly recommend that everyone read this book and the whole Conversations with God series. ( )
