In case you haven’t already read Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations With God, I highly recommend that you do, at least Volume # 1 of the three. It can give one a clear understanding of what we are involved with in this world. I found no fault with what was said and it is also amusing. To me this life is rather amusing from a divine spiritual point of view. The more spiritual truth we can accept the more amusing it all becomes. For example ” I’m doing what with my energy when I chose to think and speak? That’s silly and stupid (a lot of the time). So if you haven’t read it, do so, and if you have you’ll know what I’m talking about. Here is an example of the book.
Nothing Happens by Accident
Such was Jesus’ compassion that He begged for a way — and created it — to so impact the world that all might come to heaven (Self realization) — if in no other way, then through him. For he defeated misery, and death. And so might you.
The grandest teaching of Christ was not that you shall have everlasting life — but that you do; not that you shall have brotherhood in God, but that you do; not that you shall have whatever you request, but that you do.
All that is required is to know this. For you are the creator of your reality, and life can show up no other way for you than that way in which you think it will.
You think it into being. This is the first step in creation. God the Father is thought. Your thought is the parent which gives birth to all things.
