Will You Take The Next Step? Part II

Will You Take The Next Step?  Part II

A Note from Neale...

My dear friends... 

Conversations with God tells us that we are three-part beings, made up of Body, Mind, and Soul. In the weeks ahead here in the Bulletin, I would like to explore together the pathway to the Soul, because I get many questions about the Soul, and how to "get there." If you missed last week's opening installment in this series, I hope you will go back and read it

We began last week by asserting that the way to the Soul is the way out of the Mind. What we need now is what philosopher/author Alan Sasha Lithman calls "a mutation of consciousness." We need to get out of our Mind and into our Soul, so that we may see what we are looking at for what it is, rather than what we have imagined it to be. We must look at life through what Ron and Mary Hulnick, in their book Loyalty to Your Soul, call "Soul-Centered Eyes." We must change everything about the way we hold, approach, and live our lives. And we must do this before everything changes us.


The first step in this process is a willingness to shift. We have to consent — as individuals, and ultimately, as a species — to undertake explorations of the realms outside the Mind...and to embrace as at least possible some of our findings there.   

The difficulty with such explorations is that all that can be found outside the realm of the Mind is Direct Experience — and Direct Experience is not confirmable, because it is not yet shareable. And we live in a culture which largely asserts that "that which cannot be shared cannot be real." So we find a way to share that which cannot be shared, in order to make it "real." 

Thus was religion born. Thus does religion continue to thrive. For we are seeking to form a shared experience out of an experience that cannot be shared, but can only and always be subjective. And we are seeking to do this because we know that this is the only way we can legitimize our experience of God.


If the experience is not shared by others, then it must not be real, our species has decided — and we have embraced this notion as absolute truth. All true experience must be independently verifiable. That is the measuring stick we have chosen to use. If an experience is not independently verifiable, it is assumed to be simply the imagination of the experiencer. Or, worse yet, the lunatic ravings of a mad man. 

The sole reason that my Conversations with God books gained even a small amount of acceptance is that so many people came "out of the closet" and announced that they have had the same experience.  

The question now before humanity is, are we willing to go to the next step? Are we willing to embrace as being at least possible some of the notions and ideas and messages of A New Theology that cannot be verified by mutual or similar experience? Are you, individually, willing to shift your "ground of being" (that is, your whole way of being in the world, your whole way of moving through life) from a Mind-based platform to a Soul-based lift-off point? Are you ready to start at a different point in your consideration of things, in your look at Life? 

If you do this, you will have changed everything. You will have changed your Being, which will open you to a new place of Consciousness, which will raise your level of Awareness, which will drastically alter your Perspective, which will dramatically shift your Perception, which will monumentally realign your Beliefs, which will produce brand spanking new Behaviors — which will result in an entirely different Experience. 

And we will continue this exploration in this space next week! 

love and hugs,
