·  an uncommon dialogue  ·





Book 1




Neale Donald Walsch













When I was a child, my mother used to say, “God is always with you. God is your best friend.” Of course, I believed her. She was, after all, my mother. It never occurred to me that she might not be speaking from her own experience. It never occurred to me that my mother may not have felt God’s actual presence in her everyday life.


But as I grew older, I began to have doubts. I never doubted my mother’s faith, but I began to wonder about its source. I had never had any direct experience of God in my life, and for someone who was “always with me,” God was remarkably non-present. I never stopped believing in the existence of God, mind you. I just didn’t quite get that God was even aware of—much less interested—in me.


Then in February 1992 I had an experience that changed all that. That was the month in which God began to speak to me. Personally. We entered, in fact, into a rather exten­sive dialogue. Lasting one full year, our exchanges became a book. We called it Conversations with God. Our conver­sation quenched in me an enormous thirst, satisfied in me an incredible hunger. And I hoped that by sharing it, it could do the same for others.


We have been searching for the God of our heart for a very long time. The God I met in my conversation was not a God to fear, but a God of unconditional and unlimited love. A God of deep compassion and understanding. A God of wonderful humor who takes pure delight in the joyful celebration of life. This is a God offering friendship, not lordship—and asking, in return, for friendship, not wor­ship.


That is the God I would like all of us to know. And the wisdom of that kind God is the wisdom I wish we could live each day. These meditations offer a chance to do just that. Taken from the pages of Conversations with God, these words have been very helpful, very meaningful, and very inspiring to me.


I invite you to open this book each morning and embrace the day’s thought. Meditate on its meaning. Then seek to bring that meaning into your life as you go about your day. At the close of the day, open this book again, turning to the page with which you began your morning. Read once more the words for the day. Take a moment to reflect on the hours just past, and the new context within which the words may be considered.


Then close the book with thanks. And, if it feels good to do so, write in your journal what has come to you from this process. Put down whatever comes to your mind.


In this way you can use the daily meditations here to begin your own conversation with God.





Neale Donald Walsch


May 1997






January 1

It is not God’s function to create or uncreate the circumstances and conditions of your life. God created You, in the image and likeness of God. You have created the rest.

p. 13



January 2

Do the deed that you want to have the new thought about. Then say the words that you want to have your new thought about. Do this often enough and you’ll train the mind to think a new way.

p. 164



January 3

I have always been here to help you, I am here now. You don’t have to find the answers on your own. You never had to.

p. 66



January 4

A true Master is not the one with the most students, but one who creates the most Masters.

p. 114



January 5

Your ideas about Right and Wrong are just that—ideas. They are the thoughts which form the shape and create the substance of Who You Are. There would be only one reason to change any of these; only one purpose in making an alteration; if you are not happy with who you are.

p. 62



January 6

Life is eternal. You are immortal. You never do die. You simply change form.

p. 193



January 7

God’s greatest moment is the moment you realize you need no God.

p. 114



January 8

Let your love propel your beloveds into the world—and into the full experience of who they are. In this will you have truly loved.

p. 115



January 9

If you have caught yourself in an ungodly act as a result of doing what is best for you, the confusion is not in having put yourself first, but rather in misunderstanding what is best for you.

p. 132



January 10

Treating others with love does not necessarily mean allowing others to do as they wish.

p. 132



January 11

God asks only that you include yourself among those you love.

p. 132



January 12

If there were such a thing as sin, this would be it: to allow yourself to become what you are because of the experience of others.

p. 62



January 13

If your values serve you, hold to them. Argue for them. Fight to defend them. Yet seek to fight in a way which harms no one. Harm is not a necessary ingredient in healing.

p. 62



January 14

The soul—your soul—knows all there is to know all the time. There is nothing hidden to it, nothing unknown. Yet knowing is not enough. The soul seeks to experience.

p. 22



January 15

You can know yourself to be generous, but unless you do something which displays generosity, you have nothing but a concept. You can know yourself to be kind, but unless you do someone a kindness, you have nothing but an idea about yourself.

p. 22



January 16

The first thing to understand about the universe is that no condition is “good” or “bad.” It just is. So stop making value judgments.

p. 79



January 17

The first step in changing anything is to know and accept that you have chosen it to be what it is. If you can’t accept this on a personal level, agree to it through your understanding that we are all one. Seek then to create change not because a thing is wrong, but because it no longer makes an accurate statement of who you are.

p. 36



January 18

My purpose in creating you, My spiritual offspring, was for Me to know Myself as God. I have no way to do that save through you.

p. 26



January 19

By your decisions you paint a portrait of Who You Are.

p. 154



January 20

No one who has attained mastery is dull. Unusual, perhaps. Extraordinary, perhaps. But never dull.

p. 78



January 21

Have you ever seen anything more perfect than a snowflake? Its intricacy, its design, its symmetry, its conformity to itself and originality from all else are all a mystery. You wonder at the miracle of this awesome display of nature. Yet if I can do this with a single snowflake, what think you I can do—have done—with the universe?

p. 43



January 22

I will do nothing for you that you will not do for your Self. That is the law and the prophets.

p. 50



January 23

You cannot experience yourself as what you are until you’ve encountered what you are not. This is the purpose of the theory of relativity, and all physical life. It is by that which you are not that you yourself are defined.

p. 27



January 24

I suggest that it is your judgments which keep you from joy, and your expectations which make you unhappy.

p. 108



January 25

Masters are those who have chosen only love. In every instance. In every moment. In every circumstance.

p. 57



January 26

I invite you to a new form of communication with God. A two-­way communication. In truth, it is you who have invited Me. For I have come to you, in this form, right now, in answer to your call.

p. 7



January 27

You must first learn to honor and cherish and love your Self.

p. 126



January 28

Every heart which earnestly asks, Which is the path to God? is shown.

p. 94



January 29

The process of prayer becomes much easier when, rather than having to believe that God will always say yes to every request, one understands intuitively that the request itself is not necessary.

p. 13



January 30

When you have a thought that is not in alignment with your higher vision, change to a new thought, then and there. When you say a thing that is out of alignment with your grandest idea, make a note not to say something like that again.

p. 78



January 31

You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion.

p. 121



February 1

God is the energy you call imagination. God is creation. God is first thought. And God is last experience. And God is everything in between.

p. 198



February 2

Your teachers have told you of an angry God, a jealous God, a God who needs to be needed. And that is not a God at all, but a neurotic substitute for that which would be a deity.

p. 114




It is your first nature to be unconditionally loving.

p. 78



February 4

I will do nothing for you that you will not do for your Self. That is the law of the prophets. The world is in the condition it is in because of you, and the choices you have made—or failed to make. The Earth is in the shape it’s in because of you, and the choices you have made—or failed to make. Your own life is the way it is because of you, and the choices you have made—or failed to make.

p. 50



February 5

Bless every person and condition, and give thanks Thus you affirm the perfection of God’s creation— and show your faith in it. For nothing happens by accident in God’s world, and there is no such thing as coincidence. Nor is the world buffeted by random choice, or something you call fate!

p. 114



February 6

There is only what serves you, and what does not. The terms “right” and “wrong” are relative terms.

p. 162



February 7

Allow each soul to walk its path.

p. 47



February 8

There is nothing scary about life if you are not attached to results.

p. 110



February 9

You are, have always been and will always be, a divine part of the divine whole, a member of the body. That is why the act of rejoining the Whole, of returning to God, is called remembrance. You actually choose to re-member Who You Really Are, or to join together with the various parts of you to experience the all of you—which is to say, the All of Me.

p 28



February 10

Your perception of ultimate reality is more limited than you thought, and Truth is more unlimited than you can imagine.

p. 197



February 11

This is the second great illusion of man: that the outcome of life is in doubt. It is this doubt about ultimate outcome that has created your greatest enemy, which is fear. For if you doubt outcome, then you must doubt the creator—you must doubt God.

p 14



February 12

I have given you nothing shameful, least of all your very body, and its functions.

p. 208



February 13

Ultimately all Spirit renounces what is not real, and nothing in the life you lead is real, save your relationship with Me.

p. 100



February 14

At the critical juncture in all human relationships, there is only one question:

What would love do now?

p 130



February 15

There are those who say you must overcome your desires. I say you must simply change them. The first practice feels like a rigorous discipline, the second, a joyful exercise.

p. 159



February 16

You’re setting your sights too low. Broaden the scope of your horizons. Extend the depth of your vision. See more in you than you think there is to be seen.

p. 142



February 1 7

You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love. You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things. Choose now to know yourself as these things always.

p . 87



February 18

People assume that if God were to talk directly with you, God would not sound like the fella next door.

p. 68



February 19

Stop making judgments against yourself

p. 71



February 20

The world exists the way it exists— just as a snowflake exists the way it exists—quite by design. You have created it that way—just as you have created your life exactly as it is.

p. 49



February 21

Your body, your mind and your soul (spirit) are one. In this, you are a microcosm of Me—the Divine All, the Holy Everything the Sum and the Substance.

p. 197



February 22

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determine who you want to be.

p. 21



February 23

This is the root of every problem you experience in your life—you do not consider yourself worthy enough to be spoken to by God. Good heavens, how can you ever expect to hear my voice if you don’t imagine yourself to be deserving enough to even be spoken to?

p. 162



February 24

One day, if you have a great deal of courage, you will experience a world where making love is considered better than making war. On that day will you rejoice.

p. 109



February 25

Life will “take off’ for you . . .  when you choose for it to . . . . you must believe the promise and live it. You must live the promise of God.

p. 75



February  26

Stop questioning your motives (you do it incessantly) and let’s get on with it.

p. 7O



February 27

You are evolving, you are becoming. And you are using your relationship with everything to decide what you are becoming. This is the job you came here to do. This is the joy of creating self. Of knowing self. Of becoming, consciously, what you wish to be.

p. 126



February 28

Come to Me along the path of your heart, not through a journey of your mind. You will never find Me in your mind.

p. 94



February 29

Would you not be better off to think the thoughts you want to think, than those of others? Are you not better armed with creative thoughts than with reactive thoughts?

p 165



March 1

You say it is difficult to walk the path of Christ, to follow the teachings of the Buddha, to hold the light of Krishna, to be a Master. Yet I tell you this: It is far more difficult to deny Who You Are than to accept it.

p. 86



March 2

If humans do not change some of their Sponsoring Thoughts, humankind could doom itself to extinction.

p. 164

March 13

There is perfection in the process, and all life arises out of choice. It is not appropriate to interfere with choice, nor to question it. It is particularly inappropriate to condemn it.

p. 142



March 23

Health will improve almost at once when worrying ends.

p. 188



March 24

If you think your life is about doingness, you do not understand what you are about. Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living—and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you’re being while you’re doing whatever you’re doing.

p. 170



March 25

The question is not, why start off on such a path? You have already started off. You did so with the first beat of your heart. The question is:

Do I wish to walk this path consciously, or unconsciously?

March 26

So long as you entertain the notion that there is something or someone else out there “doing it” to you, you disempower yourself to do anything about it.

March 27

Do not feel abandoned. I am always with you.

p. 210



March 28

Desire Is the beginning of all creation. It Is first thought It Is a grand feeling within the soul. It Is God, choosing what next to create.

March 29

You don’t have a clear focus; you’re not really sure what’s true for you. And the universe is just a big Xerox machine. It simply produces multiple copies of your thoughts. Now there’s only one way to change all that. You have to change your thought about it.

p. 102



April 4

You have no obligation in relationship. You have only opportunity. Opportunity, not obligation, is the cornerstone of religion, the basis of spirituality. So long as you see it the other way around, you will have missed the point.

God is in the sadness and in laughter. In the biter and the sweet.

p. 88



May 9

Do not condemn, therefore, all that you would call bad in the world. Rather, ask yourself, what about this have you judged bad, and what, if anything, you wish to do to change it.

May 16

Well, if God can’t inspire you, who in hell can?

p. 88



May 17

p. 170



May 23

For goodness’ sake, don’t destroy sexual innocence and pleasure and the purity of the fun, the joy, by misusing sex. Don’t use it for power or hidden purpose; for ego gratification or domination; or any purpose other than the purest joy and the highest ecstasy, given and shared—which is love.

p. 206



May 24

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.

p. 52

p. 44

p. 88



May 28

You have come here to work out an individual plan for your own salvation. Yet salvation does not mean saving yourself from the snares of the devil. There is no such thing as the devil, and hell does not exist. You are saving yourself from the oblivion of nonrealization.

p. 51



May 29

Every one of My messengers has been defiled. Far from gaining glory, they have gained nothing but heartache. Are you willing? Does your heart ache to tell the truth about Me?

p 145



May 30

I gave to each of the countless parts of Me (to all of my spirit children) the same power to create which I have as the whole.

p. 25



May 31

If you believe that God is some omnipotent Being who hears all prayers, says “yes” to some, “no” to others, and “maybe, but not now” to the rest, you are mistaken. By what rule of thumb would God decide?

p. 13



June 6

I do not communicate by words alone. In fact, rarely do I do so. My most common form of communication is through feeling.

p 116



June 17

I want for you what you want for you. Nothing more, nothing less. I don’t sit here and make a judgment, request by request, whether something should be granted you. My law is the law of cause and effect, not the law of “We’ll See.”

p. 117



June 18

From the highest mountain it has been shouted, in the lowest pure its whisper has been heard. Through the corridors of all human experience has this Truth been echoed: Love is the answer.

p. 58



June 19

Worry is just about the worst form of mental activity there is . . . Worry is pointless. It is wasted mental energy.

p. 188

Marriage is a sacrament. But not because of its sacred obligations. Rather, because of its unequaled opportunity.

p. 138



June 25

The world will need many voices to speak the words of truth and healing for which millions long. The world will need many hearts joined together in the work of the soul, and prepared to do the work of God. Can you honestly claim that you are not aware of this?

All conditions are temporary.

June 29

So what is your intention now? Do you intend to prove your theory that life seldom brings you what you choose? Or do you intend to demonstrate Who You Are and Who I Am?

p. 119



June 30

I tell you there is no such experience after death as you have constructed in your fear-based theologies.

p. 41



July 1

I do not make a judgment about the creations that you conjure. I simply empower you to conjure more—and more and more and more.

p.  118



July 2

Your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience—wanting—in your reality. The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude.

p. 11



July 3

Are you going to be in a place called fear, or in a place called love? Where are you—and where are you coming from—as you encounter life?

p. 172



July 4

How can you be a creative being if I am dictating what you shall be do and have? My joy is in your freedom, not your compliance.

p. 166



July 5

When life is lived from a standpoint of damage control or optimum advantage, the true benefit of life is forfeited. The opportunity is lost. The chance is missed. For a life lived thusly is a life lived from fear.

p. 130



July 6

Do you not see that I could just as easily work through your imagination as anything else?

p. 6



July 7

Obedience is not creation, and thus can never produce salvation. Obedience is a response, while creation is pure choice, undictated, unrequired.

p. 175



July 8

When you are in your God space, you know and understand that all you are now experiencing is temporary. I tell you that heaven and earth shall pass away, but you shall not.

p. 116


July 9

Bring to the space of your experience the highest and best idea you ever had about you.

p. 66



July 10

Mine is always your Highest Thought, your Clearest Word, your Grandest Feeling. Anything less is from another source.

p. 4



July 11

I have heard the crying of your heart. I have seen the searching of your soul.

p   58



July 12

No one will judge you ever, for why, and how, could God judge God’s own creation and call it bad?

p 41



July 13

You have brought your Self to the relative world so that you might have the tools with which to know and experience Who You Really Are. Who You Are is who you create yourself to be in relationship to all the rest of it.

p. 126



July 14

Thoughts rooted in fear will produce one kind of manifestation on the physical plane, thoughts rooted in love will produce another. The masters are those who have chosen only love. In every instant. In every moment. In every circumstance.

p. 57



July 15

Nothing happens to you or through you that is not for your own highest good.

p. 174



July 16

Belief in God produces belief in God’s greatest gift—unconditional love—and God’s greatest promise— unlimited potential.

p. 44



July 17

There are a million aspects to Me. A billion. A trillion. You see? There is the profane and the profound, the lesser and the larger, the hollow and the holy, the ghastly and the Godly.

p. 173



July 18

This is the goal of your soul, this is its purpose: to fully realize itself while in the body; to become the embodiment of all that it really is.

p. .43



July 19

Do not what you are obliged to do, but what you have an opportunity to do.

p  145



July 20

The soul leads you to the right and perfect opportunities for you to experience exactly what you had planned to experience. What you actually experience is up to you.

p. 174



July 21

Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals.

p. 19



July 22

The people who make a living doing what they love are the people who insist on doing so.

p. 169



July 23

Suffering has nothing to do with events, but with one’s reaction to them. What’s happening is merely what’s happening. How you feel about it is another matter.

p. 105


July 24

The actions of the body were meant to be reflections of a state of being, not attempts to attain a state of being.

p. 185



July 25

The way to reduce the pain which you associate with earthly experiences and events—both yours and those of others—is to change the way you behold them. You cannot change the outer event, so you must change the inner experience.

p. 3



July 26

We make real that to which we pay attention.

p. 107



July 27

Do you imagine this is too big a problem for Me to solve? I see, so it’s a matter of faith. You don’t question My ability, you merely doubt My desire.

p. 117



July 28

The voice within is the loudest voice with which I speak, because it is the closest to you. It is the voice which tells you whether everything else is true or false, right or wrong, good or bad as you have defined it. It is the radar that sets the course, steers the ship, guides the journey if you but let it.

p. 20



July 29

The purpose of a relationship is to decide what part of yourself you’d like to see “show up,” not what part of another you can capture and hold.

p. 122



July 30

When you have a thought that is not in alignment with your higher vision, change to a new thought, then and there. When you say a thing which is out of alignment with your grandest idea, make a note not to say something like that again. When you do a thing which is misaligned with your best intention, decide to make that the last time.

p. 78



July 31

What your body is doing is a reflection of what your life is about.

p  186



August 1

You are not on this planet to produce anything with your body. You on are on this planet to produce something with your soul. Your body Is simply and merely the tool of your soul.

p. 172



August 2

The more you are, the more you can become, and the more you can become, the more you can yet be.

p. 20



August 3

If you want to know what’s true for you about something, look to how you’re feeling about it. Feelings are sometimes difficult to discover— and often even more difficult to acknowledge. Yet hidden in your deepest feelings is your highest truth.

p. 3



August 4

You’ll get as many chances as you want and need. You can come back again and again and again. If you do get to the next step, if you evolve to the next level, it’s because you want to, not because you have to.

p. 149



August 5

I will continue sending you the same messages over and over again, throughout the millenia and to whatever corner of the universe you occupy. Endlessly will I send you My messages, until you have received them and held them close, calling them your own.

p. 5



August 6

It takes great courage to announce oneself as a man of God. You understand, the world will much more readily accept you as virtually anything else.

p. 145



August 7

Next time, decide to act before you think.

p. 168



August 8

In the true order of things one does not do something in order to be happy—one is happy, and, hence, does something.

p. 185



August 9

Do you think there is a word I have not heard? A sight I have not seen? A sound I do not know? Is it your thought that I despise some of these, while I love the others? I tell you, I despise nothing. None of it is repulsive to Me. It is life, and life is the gift; the unspeakable treasure; the holy of holies.

p. 60



August 10

All the “bad” things that happen are of your choosing. The mistake is not in choosing them, but in calling them bad.

p. 30


August 11

The function of the soul is to indicate its desire, not impose it.

p. 175



August 12

Your life work is a statement of Who You Are. If it is not, then why are you doing it?

p. 186



August 13

You cannot experience yourself as what you are until you’ve encountered what you are not.

p. 27



August 14

Seek to change those things—or support others who are changing those things—which no longer reflect your highest sense of Who You are.

p. 38

Doing is a function of the body. Being Is a function of the soul.

p  170

If you don’t like what you’ve —created, choose again. My job, as God, is to always give you that opportunity.

p. 118



August 17

There is only one purpose for all of life, and that is for you and all that lives to experience fullest glory. Everything else you say, think or do is attendant to that function.

p: 20



August 18

If you want guarantees in life, then you don’t want life. You want rehearsals for a script that’s already been written.

p. 141



August 19

There Is no coincidence, and nothing happens “by accident”

p. 52



August 20

You misunderstand your power. I tell you this: Your life proceeds out of your intentions for it.

p. 118



August 21

The soul conceives, the mind creates, the body experiences. The circle is complete. The soul then knows itself in its own experience.

p 196



August 22

There’s a difference between being and doing, and most people have placed their emphasis on the latter.

p. 196



August 23

Now, having seen the differences between where you are and where you want to be, begin to change— consciously change—your thoughts, words and actions to match your grandest vision.

p. 77



August 24

Move into communion with the souls of others, and their purpose, their intention, will be clear to you.

p. 47



August 25

The moral codes, religious constrictions, social taboos and emotional conventions you have placed around sex have made it virtually impossible for you to celebrate your being.

p 208



August 26

You may think this is easy, this Be Who You Really Are business, but it’s the most challenging thing you 11 ever do in your life.

p. 148



August 27

There is only one reason to do anything: as a statement to the universe of Who You Are.

p 36



August 28

Remember to exercise extreme judgment regarding what you call “right” and “wrong.”

p. 47



August 29

Are you willing to endure the ridicule of your fellow human beings? Are you prepared to give up glory on Earth for the greater glory of the soul fully realized?

p 145



August 30

The spirit in you seeks that grand moment when you have conscious awareness of its wishes, and join in joyful oneness with them.

p. 174



August 31

You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determine who you want to be.

p. 20



September 1

You call a life of complete freedom “spiritual anarchy.” I call it God’s great promise. It is only within the context of this promise that God’s great plan can be completed.

p. 137



September 2

If, then, revelation is requested, it cannot be had, for the act of asking is a statement that it is not there.

p. 10



September 3

The act of resisting something is the act of granting it life. . . . the more you resist, the more you make it real—whatever it is you are resisting.

p 102



September 4

You cannot disembark from the journey. You embarked before you were born. Your birth is simply a sign that the journey has begun.

p. 106



September 5

The Highest Thought is always that thought which contains joy. The Clearest Words are those words which contain truth. The Grandest Feeling is that feeling which you call love.

p. 5



September 6

All people are special, and all moments are golden. There is no person, and there is no time one more special than another.

p. 6



September 7

You always get what you create, and you are always creating.

p. 118



September 8

You cannot know God until you stop telling yourself that you already know God. You cannot hear God until you stop thinking that you’ve already heard God.

p. 8



September 9

If you knew Who You Are—that you are the most magnificent, the most remarkable, the most splendid being God has ever created—you would never fear. For who could reject such wondrous magnificence?

p. 16



September 10

When the body, mind and soul create together, in harmony and in unity, God is made flesh. Then does the soul know itself in its own experience. Then do the heavens rejoice.

p. 175



September 11

Judge not that about which you feel passionate. Simply notice it, then see if it serves you, given who and what you wish to be.

p. 100



September 12

Admit honestly to yourself and to another exactly how you are feeling.

p. 128



September 13

Inquire within, rather than without, asking: “What part of my Self do I wish to experience now in the face of this calamity? What aspect of being do I choose to call forth?”

p. 32



September 14

You have forgotten what it was like to be loved without condition. You do not remember the experience of the love of God. And so you try to imagine what God’s love must be like, based on what you see of love in the world.

p. 17



September 15

The intention is for you not to fail.

p. 149



September 16

Some events you produce willfully, and some events you draw to you— more or less unconsciously. Some events are written off to “fate.” Yet even “fate” can be an acronym for “from all thoughts everywhere.” In other words, the consciousness of the planet.

p. 106



September 1 7

The answer is the answer you cannot hear—for it leaves you without guidelines and renders null and void every agreement in the moment you make it. The answer is: You have no obligation. Neither in relationship, nor in all of life.

p. 135



September 18

Seek not to make of your love a glue that binds, but rather a magnet that first attracts, then turns around and repels, lest those who are attracted begin to believe they must stick to you to survive.

p- 115



September 19

I have created you—blessed you— in the image and likeness of Me.

p. 95



September 20

The most difficult thing for people to do is to hear their own soul. (Notice that so few people do.)

p. 81



September 21

Sex is joy, and many of you have made sex everything else but.

p. 207



September 22

You create, collectively and individually, the life and times you are experiencing, for the soul purpose of evolving.

p. 37



September 23

That which you fear you will experience.

p. 54



September 24

I truly want what you truly want— nothing different and nothing more. Don’t you see that is my greatest gift to you?

p. 166



September 25

See the Divine in a baby who needs changing at 3 a. m.  . . . in a bill that needs paying by the first of the month. Recognize the hand of God in the illness that takes a spouse, the job that’s lost, the child’s fever, the parent’s pain. Now we are talking saintliness.

p. 115



September 26

If, now, there is something you choose to experience in your life, do not “want it”—choose it.

p. 180



September 27

You are already a God. You simply do not know it.

p. 202



September 28

Choosing to be God-like does not mean that you choose to be a martyr. And it certainly does not mean you choose to be a victim.

p. 134



September 29

You cannot create a thing—not a thought, an object, an event—no experience of any kind—which is outside of God’s plan.

p. 61



September 30

I understand your fatigue. I know you are tired of the struggle. Yet I tell you this: When you follow Me the struggle disappears.

p. 115



October 1

You can choose to be a person who has resulted simply from what has happened, or from what you’ve chosen to be and do about what has happened.

p. 122



October 2

You cannot be ill without at some level causing yourself to be, and you can be well again in a moment by simply deciding to be.

p. 32



October 3

In the moment you pledge your highest love, you greet your greatest fear.

p. 16



October 4

I talk to everyone. All the time. The question is not to whom do I talk, but who listens?

p. 3



October 5

Listen to your feelings. Listen to your highest thoughts. Listen to your experience. Whenever any of these differ from what you’ve been told by your teachers, or read in your books, forget the words. Words are the least reliable purveyor of Truth.

p. 8



October 6

It is your soul’s only desire to turn its grandest concept about itself into its greatest experience.

p. 22



October 7

By tat which you call evil do you define yourself—and by that which you call good. The biggest evil would therefore be to declare noting evil at all.

p. 134



October 8

When human love relationships fail, they fail because they were entered into for the wrong reason.

p. 122



October 9

A Master blesses calamity, for the Master knows that from the seeds of disaster (and all experience) comes the growth of Self. And the Master’s . . . life purpose is always growth.

p. 129



October 10

Life may more than once call upon you to prove Who You Are by demonstrating an aspect of Who You Are Not.

p. 133



October 11

All of you are special.

p. 143



October 12

You must honor your feelings. For honoring your feelings means honoring your Self.

p. 128



October 13

A practicing Master does not speak of suffering simply because a Master practicing clearly understands the power of the Word—and so chooses to simply not say a word about it.

p. 107



October 14

The soul is very clear that its purpose is evolution. That is its le purpose—and its soul purpose. It is not concerned with t e achievements of the body or t e development of the mind. These are all meaningless to the soul.

p. 82



October 15

Be watchful of the choices of others, but not judgmental. Know that their choice is perfect for them in this moment now—yet stand ready to assist them should the moment come when they seek a newer choice, a different choice— a higher choice.

p. 47



October 1 6

You cannot move away from something, because it will chase you all over hell and back. Therefore, resist not temptation— but simply turn from it.

p. 104



October 17

You are a three-fold being. You consist of body, mind and spirit. You could also call these the physical, the nonphysical and the metaphysical. This is the Holy Trinity, and it has been called by many names.

p. 73



October 1 8

The truth is relentless. It won’t leave you alone. It keeps creeping up on you from every side, showing you what’s really so.

p. 140



October 19

If you do not go within, you go without.

p. 44



October 20

It is a great challenge, this path of the householder. There are many distractions, many worldly concerns. The aesthetic is bothered by none of these. He is brought his bread and water, and given his humble mat on which to lie, and he can devote his every hour to prayer, meditation and contemplation of the divine. How easy to see the divine under such circumstances! How simple a task! Ah, but give one a spouse and children!

p. 115



October 21

Some of you are walking in wakefulness, and some of you are sleepwalking. Yet all of you are creating your own reality— creating, not discovering.

p. 92



October 22

I have given you the tools with which to respond and react to events in a way which reduces—in fact, eliminates—pain, but you have not used them.

p. 105



October 23

Look to your experience to find your truth.

p. 109



October 24

The point of life is not to get anywhere—it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there.

p. 104



October 25

The Laws are very simple.

1. Thought is creative.

2. Fear attracts like energy.

3. Love is all there is.

p. 56



October 26

There is no such thing as an incorrect path—for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going. It is simply a matter of speed—merely a question of when you will get there.

p. 104



October 27

The word of God was not a commandment, but a covenant.

p. 95



October 28

What you open your eyes and look at disappears. That is, it ceases to hold its illusory form.

p. 102



October 29

All of your life you think you are your body. Some of the time you think you are your mind. It is at the time of your death that you find out Who You Really Are.

p.  81



October 30

The grandest teaching of Christ was not that you shall have everlasting life—but that you do.

p. .52



October 31

A true leader is not the one with the most followers, but one who creates the most leaders.

p. 114



November 1

The realm of the relative was created in order that I might experience My Self. This does not make the realm of the relative real. It is a created reality you and I have devised.

p. 56



November 2

If you cannot depend upon God’s love to always be there, on whose love can you depend?

p. 16



November 3

Feeling is the language of the soul.

p. 3



November 4

What you fear most is what will most plague you. Fear will draw it to you like a magnet.

p. 56



November 5

Joy, truth, love. These three are interchangeable, and one always leads to the other. It matters not in which order they are placed.

p. 5



November 6

My purpose will not be thwarted, nor My will be ignored. You will get the message. Sooner or later.

p. 5



November 7

What you resist persists.

p. 102



November 8

Do you imagine that a human soul encounters life challenges— whatever they may be—by accident? Is this your imagining?

p. 45



November 9

Many people choose to believe that God communicates in special ways and only with special people. This removes the mass of the people from responsibility for hearing My message . . . and allows them to take someone else’s word for everything.

p. 6



November 10

The original wisdom surrounding suffering in silence has become so perverted that now many believe (and several religions actually teach) that suffering is good, and joy is bad.

p. 108


November 11

Words may help you understand something. Experience allows you to know.

p. 4



November 12

Nothing stays the same, nothing remains static. Which way a thing changes depends on you.

p. 79



November 13

From the beginning all man has ever wanted is to love and be loved. And from the beginning of time man has done everything in his power to make it impossible to do that.

p. 208



November 14

You cannot be what you do not know your Self to be.

p. 201



November 15

You are telling me that you haven’t always gotten what you wanted. Yet I am here to tell you that you’ve always gotten what you called forth. Your life is always a result of your thoughts about it.

p. 118



November 16

You may do as you wish without fear of retribution. It may serve you, however, to be aware of consequences. Consequences are results. Natural outcomes. These are not at all the same as retributions or punishments.

p. 42



November 17

This is the greatest barrier to your enlightenment: You think you already know the truth! You think you already understand how it is. So you agree with everything that falls into the paradigm of your understanding, and reject everything which does not. And this you call learning.

p. 195



November 18

Nothing occurs in your life— nothing—which is not first a thought. Thoughts are like magnets, drawing effects to you.

p.  188



November 1 9

Everyone can love everything the moment they understand what they are doing, and why.

p 186



November 20

A true teacher is not the one with the most knowledge, but one who causes the most others to have knowledge.

p. 115



November 21

How can you think of wasting a moment doing something for a living you don’t like to do? What kind of a living is that? That is not a living, that is a dying!

p. 185



November 22

Each to his own, without judgment— that is the motto.

p. 206



November 23

Begin by being still. Quiet the outer world, so that the inner world might bring you sight.

p.  44



November 24

There is nothing you can’t have if you choose it. Even before you ask, I will have given it to you.

p. 117



November 25

When body, mind and soul create together, in harmony and in unity, God is made flesh. Then does the soul know itself in its own experience. Then do the heavens rejoice.

p. 175



November 26

The Holy Spirit will not force His will upon your soul. It is outside of the nature of the spirit to do so, and thus, quite literally, impossible.

p. 175



November 27

Keep on deciding what you warn to become In the next highest version of your Self. Keep on working toward that. This Is God Work we’re up to, You and I, so keep on!

November 28

There is not limit to what you can become.

p. 201



November 29

There are those who say that I have given you free will, yet these same people claim that if you do not obey Me, I will send you to hell. What kind of free will is that?

p. 39



November 30

Now is the time to go to your God space more than ever.

p. 116



December 1

If the entity which is you is to create, and thus know, who it really is, it must be through an act of conscious volition, not an act of unconscious obedience.

p. 175



December 2

Thankfulness is the most powerful statement to God; an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered. Therefore, never supplicate, appreciate.

p. 11



December 3

I tell you this: I am performing a miracle right now.

p. 69



December 4

Every human thought, and every human action, is based in either love or fear. There is no other human motivation.

p. 5



December 7

Go ahead and do what you really love to do! Do nothing else!

p. 185



December 8

All of your holy scriptures—of every religious persuasion and tradition—contain the clear admonition: Fear not. Do you think this is by accident?

p. 54



December 9

Life’s irony is that as soon as world goods and world success are of no concern to you, the way is open for them to flow to you.

p. 176



December 10

Are you going to be in a place called fear, or in a place called love? Where are you—and where are you coming from—as you encounter life?

p. 172
