Conversations with God

Conversations with God


Nothing you see is real

There are many ways to deal with the extraordinary changes that are occurring in people’s lives these days. Here is one of them…
It is called The Change Process, and I began to talk about this in this space yesterday. (See yesterday’s blog for introductory comments.) I promised that today I would get into this more deeply. So, here goes.
The Change Process is a three-part approach to dealing with change from a spiritual point of view. It emerges from the messages in Conversations with God. Here is Step I…
When facing any life experience there is a formula through which every person may move toward mastery. Simply make the following statements:
1. Nothing in this world is real.
2. The meaning of everything is the meaning I give it.
3. I am who I say I am, and my experience is what I say it is.
This is how to work with the Illusions of Life.
The first statement in the Triad Formula is, for many people, the most difficult to embrace. It proclaims that everything we look at, everything we experience, is unreal. Nothing is actually what we imagine it to be.
This does not mean that it is not there. What it does mean is that it is not “real.” That is, it is not “really” what it “looks like.” It is not what we assume it to be.
For greater insight into this phenomenon, I suggest reading The Holographic Universe, by Michael Talbot. This extraordinary book brings us insight, from a scientific point of view, into the make-believe world in which we live.
The statement “Nothing in this world is real” is based in quantum physics – yet it is more than a scientist observation. It is a psychological and spiritual truth as well (a deeply spiritual perspective on this idea will be found in A Course in Miracles, which states: “Nothing I see is real.”). Awareness of this truth can be very healing–particularly in times of great trouble or great stress.
If you think that what you are experiencing during times of difficulty is real, you will quite literally make it real in terms of the effect that it has in your life. If, on the other hand, you know that it is unreal and that its effect is simply something you are making up, having no sum or substance whatsoever, you can disappear that effect in a single moment.
Conversations with God says that what you resist persists, and what you look at disappears. That is, it ceases to have its illusory form.
Now if you are thinking that this is very much along the lines of the message of the science fiction movie The Matrix, you are absolutely right. You will remember that, in that film, the characters were depicted as living in a make-believe world, created by their thoughts, and that the lead character, Neo, became a sort of “god” among men by simply training his mind to resist the appearance of things (such as bullets coming at him) and deny their reality.
By literally denying the reality of anything that is now happening to you that you do not wish to have happening, you are, at the very least, going to reduce its negative effects. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a popular Christian minister in the 1940′s and 50′s, pointed this out in his extraordinary book of fifty years ago, The Power of Positive Thinking. So did author James Allen in his classic, As a Man Thinketh.
Of course, the master teacher Jesus said it directly and perfectly when he declared, “As you believe, so will it be done unto you.”
So the first step in The Triad Formula is one of denying the reality of the internal effect on you of anything. This means the so-called “good” as well as the so-called “evil.” Now, what is the point of denying the so-called “good” effects?, you may ask.
The answer is that, by looking straight into the face of your greatest joy and calling it what it is–an illusion–you fail to become deeply attached to it. You may continue to enjoy it, but you literally “enjoy the hell out of it.” That is, you remove the hell of becoming addicted to your enjoyment of life in one particular form.
It is addiction–to people, to places, and to things–that creates agitation where once there was peace, misery where once there was joy, pain where once there was pleasure, sorrow where once there was happiness. This has never been more clearly described than in the deeply insightful book by Ken Keyes Jr., A Handbook to Higher Consciousness. That book–written by a paraplegic who spent his days in a wheelchair–changed my life forever. It says that you can tell that you are addicted to a person, place, or experience if the absence of that person, place, or experience causes you to lose your happiness.
Published some years ago, A Handbook to Higher Consciousness is still available today. It teaches how to elevate “addictions” to “preferences,” and I consider it one of the most extraordinarily insightful books ever written on the subject of human happiness.
It is important to note that by denying the ultimate reality of everything we think, say, and see, we are not necessarily sending it away from us. We are merely re-contextualizing our experience of it, causing ourselves to notice that what we are looking at is an illusion. Only then can we empower ourselves to either (a) allow the illusion to continue, or (b) create the illusion as coming to an end.
So long as we think that what we are experiencing is real, we will imagine ourselves to have no such power to change its effect on us. We will see ourselves as powerless in Life itself, simply moving through the experience and constantly being at the Effect of it.
Denying the ultimate reality of all that we see is, therefore, an extremely powerful and important tool in the Process of Personal Creation.
Now we are ready for part 2. If nothing I see is real, then what does anything mean? That’s another very good and fair question, and the answer is: The meaning of everything is the meaning you give it.
And we’ll explore more of this tomorrow…

Ok lets see, nothing i see is real: The street i walk along isn’t real, the water i drink isn’t real, the shoes i buy aren’t real, the lips i kiss aren’t real. But wait, whats about the human behind these lips? Humans are real, or at least our souls are real. Ok for example, i see a children smiling me, how can that not be real? it looks and feels very real for me. Maybe the smile is just an expression from his/her soul, but that doesn’t make the smile lesser real for me. I agree that things like tv, pc’s or a chair aren’t real or even rain and thunder, but i think humans and human expressions are real, ok the human body is an Illusion a god given tool, but what we do with him what we express with him isn’t allways unreal or an illusion.. That’ my opinion about this (for now) but maybe im wrong, or i see a contradiction which isn’t there

editing because of html formatting:
Shaking head…
Wow, you really don’t understand the power of creation do you.
Solidified thoughts Neale are real – They don’t just go away. They become real… And all of the intention behind them is forever the same. It is creation in love that matters. And yes Neale, there is a “Real Love” created by pure intention in the first try. Real Love is called “Jesus Christ”.
Neale, you are creating a lot of clean up work for those that do understand.
This world needs a heavy dose of 1. reality and 2. responsibility…
I learned something yesterday of the shift. At least for me:
1. As I serve my husband the more perfectly things go. I was bumbling, yet I wasn’t. What I needed was always immediately there, timing was perfect, things were easier to my surprise. It was
literally like crossing over a threshold into a perspective of higher perfection; and I understand God much more now. Even after one day.
The other thing I noticed:
2. The separation between the truly loving and those whom think they love (such as Susan) has been made larger – like a literal rift in a cosmic fabric. And on each side where a person belongs, the reality of who they are is growing stronger – it is like a cosmic assignment is beginning to happen.
Neale, it is wise to be conscious of the very fact teaching a portion of the process of creation without it’s fullness is more harmful than helpful.
Let Christ do it the right way.Kay? We’ve seen the effect of what your process, especially for those in your seminars, does for them.
love always
P.S. I would have any logically thinking adult or near adult consider that such a process of what brought literally the world into existence – that we might live – if logically thought about – would not the process of creation seem just a tad more involved than three steps that start with “Nothing you see is real”? It is because Neale only has a part of the truth, and not the whole. Just like all spiritual traditions on the earth right now… Think about it. And be cautious where caution is brought to light…

All things are illusion and unreal in this lucid dream cosmic game we are playing. Yet saying so doesn’t necessarily change anything. Saying a advanced disease isn’t real while still fearing and believing it is, doesn’t really cure or help it be less real. You have to align your beliefs with your theory. Theory, understanding and demonstration have to be coordinated.
So yes, theoretically physical life is an illusion like a lucid dream we awaken out of , and is a cosmic game like in some Star Trek, Sci Fi Matrix plot — Until we understand and demonstrate that theory in a functional practical way, physical reality will continue to seem pretty real and have a strong hold and control on us to what ever degree it does. Yes it’s unreal.
Understanding and demonstrating that takes much more than just some casual acknowledgment of it, though it’s certainly a superficial start.
Most of the beings on this planet will find the illusion of boiling water thrown on them very painful and perhaps even dangerous. A very few masters on the planet may be beyond this illusion if ever confronted by it.
My point is, that our beliefs about things are very strong/profound and it’s our beliefs that have to be gradually changed, shifted. Having the necessary spiritual tools to do this is what is needed in my point of view. Saying this physical world is ultimately unreal is theoretically spiritually correct. Not necessarily demonstratively so.
Using the illusions in a opti-mystical positive way and to our advantage requires an understanding most people in this world do not yet have, and if they do, it’s very superficial at best. Having the proper tools to help bring in this individual and collective shift in beliefs is what is required and hopefully what you will be bringing to this conversation.

Marko -
A new conversation is beginning. Gods intended conversation in the last days of the reality within His creation… For creation is real and you can not change it with merely believing that it is not real. Denial is self lying, which leads astray… Working within the reality of creation, creating with creation purely from love, is that which moves real mountains and cleanses the world. Just as the prophets of old stated would happen. Their thoughts are as real as yours or any other living being. These realities are still living. Gods ultimate reality is truly the only reality… As this world will soon see.
There is nothing I fear Cynthia – for if fear were the guiding force, none would speak out against untruth
for fear of it. It is love that speaks out against untruth for the peoples sake.
For there will come a time shortly that it will be too late to choose. And it is the obligation of those that see ultimate reality amidst the vague creations of others – to state ultimate realities truth until it arrives. For love of all requires such.
Again, the rift in the cosmic formation is already occurring – and cosmic assignments are beginning to form for the future path of each individual soul. The question is, where are you going? Or rather, where do you want to go within ultimate reality?
Time to go inward to bring forth the truth…
love always

As a disabled person, I am going to comment on a small piece of this post. I’m addressing this because I run into this phenonmenon frequently and it’s a perfect example of the discussion topic.
“…Ken Keyes Jr., A Handbook to Higher Consciousness. That book–written by a paraplegic who spent his days in a wheelchair…”
Just because someone uses a wheelchair does not make them a hero, more courageous, or gives them any special spiritual insights. Disabled people are just as diverse a population as any other. By assigning a “specialness” to the disabled, we are doing them a great disservice. To mention that someone uses a wheelchair in a context where it is irrelevant, is to support and promote the labels that have perpetuated the illusion of “us” and “them”–one more brick in the imaginary wall that I, as a disabled person, butt my head against on occasion.
Yes, I agree that my disability is an illusion that I have chosen to experience, and also that it has the meaning that I give it. Exactly. So, please don’t give it YOUR meaning.
Thanks.

Neale’s topic today is very fascinating, but the responses are even more fascinating.
I can see the value of disagreeing and stating such, but to come into someone else’s blog and flatly state that they are wrong seems a little over the top and tends to stop the exchange of ideas. What is left is a series of finger pointings that do not bring any thoughtful responses at all.
Obvisously, this is stiring up a lot of resistence, denial and fear. But, then, I think that is Neale’s purpose, to shake up humanities long held and largly unconscious belief systems.
Marko, I found you post very thoughtful and engaging! Thanks for that.

birdie, there is nothing in what I said that reflects anger, or if there is please clarify. I think that everyone deserves compassion. There is no anger in that. I think that judging whether a person deserves love and compassion based upon their financial status is a mistake. There is no anger in that. I hope this clears up the misunderstanding. There was no anger at love for a homeless man… but “Perfect Love” loves the wealthy man just as much. There’s no way of knowing what another person is going through based on their outward appearance or status or circumstances… and to judge as such is to simply invite judgment. As for Neale’s workshops, he can’t be credited nor blamed for what decisions, choices or reactions I make anymore than yours can be blamed on books you read or churches you attend or people you listen to in your life. That’s kind of a cop-out. All any of us can do is share what light we’ve found with one another.

This blog seems to be an excellent example of what happens when a sense of justification pushes restraint out the window. If a group of spiritual people can’t remember to treat each other with respect, how can we expect the Israelis and the Palestinians to get along?
If there is no room for a difference of opinion on this blog, how do you expect to find a platform for reconciliation in the great, wide world?
Feeling defensive is a signal to look within.
Let’s remember that none of us has all the answers, and that we can learn from each other by replacing separation with unity. We certainly have much more in common than we have differences.

It is great to consider “nothing is real” in the perspective of individual self progression. However, it is not a new religion, a new spirituality, the New Day. For the fact is there is something very real beyond simple humanity…
That information will be delivered to the world shortly.

First at all, please forgive my english, I am from Guatemala, Central America.
I really, I mean, REALLY understand what Neale is saying here about “this” reality. This year, has been a very very hard year for me and my family. I am engineer. I lost my job one year and half ago. I am married, two little girls. Some days we only have $1.00 in the pocket and no milk for girls.
Some years ago I start reading some books of some guy just like Neal. For me is the “Spanish Messenger”. Well, the thing is, the books of this wonderful guy plus Conversation with God plus a lot of wonderful experiences that are so wonderful that I should not mention, have transformed my life in a great way. So, the last week I found a job, I will begin january 5 and my “material life” is beginning to take a different course. Then, the only reality is HIS reality, the LOVE.
I wish all of you, that your reality in 2009 is full of LOVE

dear Your Name from Guatemala… that’s wonderful. Thanks for the encouraging words. Its nice to hear examples like yours!
The “Nothing is Real” statement causes us most of us to put our brakes on, its hard to imagine. But then if you go back and read it again, Neale explains it better:
“This does not mean that it is not there. What it does mean is that it is not “real.” That is, it is not “really” what it “looks like.” It is not what we assume it to be.
If you think that what you are experiencing during times of difficulty is real, you will quite literally make it real in terms of the effect that it has in your life. If, on the other hand, you know that it is unreal and that its effect is simply something you are making up, having no sum or substance whatsoever, you can disappear that effect in a single moment.”
This is something I can not argue with. In times of difficulty, the more I realize that I am Okay, the better everything is. If nothing else, the very insertion of hope lifts me to a higher place where I KNOW that everything is and will be, OK. And that is something that can neither be given to you nor taken away. That’s pretty awesome. It can (and has in my own life) transformed the awful into the wonderful. I wish the same for everyone!

I just had what might be a little “Epiphany”…
I got onto the blog today with the prevailing sense that my motivation and meaning has been grossly misinterpreted and sometimes explanation is beside the point.
Then tonite I was traveling and saw a man standing on the corner in the cold with a sign. I pulled up and gave him money and said, “Can you go home now?” and he smiled and said, “Yes thank you” and began to walk away. I felt so relieved that he would be able to get out of the cold, get something to eat, rest, be warm. But as I drove away, my husband pointed out that the statement I had made (which was coming from the place of love and concern for his well-being) could have been taken in another way. It could have been interpreted as me asking him to go away and stop being an annoyance. GEEZ!!! This bothered me, and I hoped that he understood my meaning. But more than anything, I was happy that he was getting out of the cold. Whether he understood my meaning or not, I loved him.

Hi Neale, I came to your blog today, by chance, in the absolute pits of despair really believing that I was doomed and was unable to shake that ‘reality’. I was unable to shake it because I thought it was absolute reality. If I could describe what that hell is like for me it is living my despairing negative thoughts concretely and literally. And I’ve been there many, many, times. Thank God reading your blog today woke me up gave me some space to breath, a window to see out of. It’s both embarrassing and freeing now to realize how megalomaniacal and unkind my thoughts can be, how much I buy into them and create myself a hell.
Susan, thanks for what you’ve said in the last two posts…. it touched me in a way I needed. When I read about you helping that man, I felt kinda like that was me too and I felt what you meant about going home inside me and it warmed me. Blessings to you.

As a writer of fiction, I understand the detach and observe concept, which leads to placing meaning on what I choose concept.
However, when faced with an extremely difficult situation–such as whether to recussitate (sp?) Or not for someone ill–how do I face this?
I’m not the kind to use blogs as a personal forum. However, my perspective right now to everyone is–go hug your dads. Mine is in the hospital; may get better or die tomorrow. On new years eve when most are planning new diets, I’m helping my mom decide how to proceed. Some of this is God and nature; some of this is living will.

Wow Neale, you sure do have good way of putting these things into terms people can understand. The hard part is practicing this perspective in everyday actions. Our judgements of good and bad become so habitual and are so largely unexpressed that it can appear overwhelming. But that’s just another unnecessary judgement. We don’t have to look at it as overwhelming, we need only allow it to be as it is, do what we can when we can and witness the benifits when we see them. And even then not get too attached to those benefits as to not create an oppurtunity for pain to creep back up in the wake of a percieved failure.
Thank you for your teachings. I look forward to the next post.

Thank You for stopping for the man holding the sign…
With deep gratitude, thank you.
Though, an “I’m sorry” would also be really nice. But, I will definitely take the stopping for someone else who really is in need, any time… ;)
My husband asked me tonight to watch ‘Evan Almighty” with him for the second time. It made me cry. Happy tears. But none the less I cried. It is like viewing something of preparation… a piece of Gods understanding and consoling in that He understands that which I am going through… While others do not understand at all.
My love is for mankind. But why is it that mankind is so obstinate as to not listen until disaster? I just do not get it… but none the less, even then I will still love you…
Elaine – my adopted father passed when I was 11. Two days after his passing he visited me in a dream. Because of the message he brought, death has never brought tears to me again – for on the other side I saw Him more right with “All” than He had ever been when alive. He looked in my eyes with the greatest joy, with a strength I never saw before, and encouragement to move courageously through this life. Your mother will hurt. But love her. Comfort her. Be the hand that she needs when she can not lift any thing herself, in any portion of her life. I did so for my own until she was healed as completely as possible. For loving her is the perfection in this opportunity…
love always
Gotta go now. For sure. God keeps commanding to write the darn book. And I’ve been stalling! But, I will do it… Totally not my will in this one. It never has been… This one is All God…

“Reason tries to make sense of the contradictions that are inherent in the paradox, but reason is unable to do so. Dostoevsky will argue that reason can embrace the existence of the paradox but is unable to move beyond it. To move beyond the paradox requires action and belief that are rooted in love.”

I enjoy reading your articles,it enriches my writing ideas. What the points in it is similar to the metaphysical practice. Also, I’m reading the Wallace Wattles , those points he made is true to make a sense that, whatever we see, just the appearance. The visible things that we observe is only the visible, but they are not “real”. Whatever thing can be change by our thought. I believe those who can perceive the wisdom of the higher soul can always know the “right things” to do.

Wow, that’s wonderful!
The first statement: “nothing is real”. I had some troubles with it yesterday, but today I can see the truth. My greatest or my best comparison of that statement goes like this:
Life is like a book, that has it’s lines, but once you go upon this lines, you are holding a book in your hands and see it’s name. And then you can see, it’s all created on the same time.
Time on line – past, present, future – disappears, now only this moment exist. You are holding the book, not reading it, just…feeling it. Cause only feeling exist in the moment and so only feeling is God – Life, the other is story filled with God or Life that created circumstances when you can feel yourself or better some love-part of the Self. You created a Story in which you can see…God – or Yourself.
That feeling is who you really are and that’s what I believe God story about “Little soul and the sun” describes.
So: nothing is real but a feeling.
We can go on with “Life never leaves us because we are not this body”.
If you are convinced, you are your body, then you can feel lonely and without God in some moments, that God is not with you, – especially death of some-body or when you loose some-thing that served your body, but if you go upon that, then you see, you are eternal and no pain can ever catch you again.
So, did I get it? I believe I did. What do you think?
Blessings and have a great time today all of you!!!
Teja

Off topic for today but your recent blogs Neale have been very inspirational. I have been looking for a way to sum up the CWG beliefs and suddenly realized the best way for me to do so. The difference I see between CWG and most religion is that there is only love and not fear. Traditional Christianity tries to teach that love and fear have to coexist but then Jesus was an example of pure love. I could never put those two ideas together. Contrary to what many Christians might say about your teachings, your books have made me more of a Christian in that I can truly believe in the message He brought to this world. I don’t believe it is the only way but I don’t think Love would require that. Thank you Neale for helping me to continue to remember who I am. Happy New Year!

Teja,
That was indeed a beautifully real picture in motion…
Thank You.
(Gentle smile)
Could it be possible in your reality that resides in ultimate reality, that the spirit that recognizes no pain may become so knowing in such a way that it fortifies itself completely in a physical body? That the fullness of the spirit no longer separates from the physical for the fact that it has become one, and thus an eternal being? For real love never passes.
And the spirit and the physical are one if believed in… If truly seen for it’s ultimate purpose; eternally one life that can become eternally exalted.
love always

bird,
thanks…? I am not overlooking your request for an “I’m sorry” I just don’t get what it is that offended you? It seems lopsided that you ask for me to apologize for saying Harley riders shouldn’t be judged, but you offer none to Neale for the insults and ridicule you regularly give him and those who disagree with you. I feel that at this point you’re asking for my apology in order to convince yourself of something and I’m not inclined to deny you that. Your opinion of you matters more than mine. But let me make this clear: just because I disagree with your opinions doesn’t mean I am against you. I am for you. It all depends on how you choose to see it. The way I see it, everyone of us here, including Neale is someone who cares,someone who wants to give and receive love, someone who wants a good life, someone who is seeking God on their own path… each just as earnestly as the other. If the words “I’m sorry” will heal you then I gladly offer them to you. I’m sorry. And to Neale, I’m sorry. And to each of you, I’m sorry. If those words can heal you and bring peace to the world, reconciliation and love… I’m sorry! LOVE!

I am about 3/4 of the way through Book 1, but I am struggling with the concept of nothing is real and live in the moment. If anyone can enlighten me i would appreciate it. Love the book and it is changing my life for the better. There is so much to re-learn.

ok, so if what we see isn’t real, how we can live in the moment if nothing is real. that seems like a contradiction to me. For the moment is based on what we see and believe, if we deny everything and say it isn’t real, then we have nothing to live in the moment.
Just my thoughts,
Happy New Year.
