A Note from Neale...
A while back I mentioned a little book titled What God Wants. Several people wrote in to me and asked, "What is this book? I never heard of it."
I wrote What God Wants a few years ago in answer to the many questions I was receiving about how to please God and give God what God wants.
Very few people will be able to believe what's in this book. At least, at first.
There will come a day when everyone will accept what has been said there as an "of course." On that future date all of this will seem so obvious. Even today it is obvious to some.
There are those who will believe the message in this book right now, this moment. Of these, a few will find it difficult to sit still. They'll want to do something with what they've heard, because they'll recognize immediately that it can change everything in our world.
These will be the fearless ones, stepping into uncharted territory, blazing a trail for those who would follow, dreaming the dreams that only the courageous can dream.
They may not hold positions of great visibility, but they'll soon be seen as candles that truly light the world. They may not be found in places of great power, but they'll soon empower an entire species to claim its inheritance and live out its destiny at last. They will, therefore, be among those human beings who change life on the earth in remarkable ways. And this will be their legacy.
You may be one of this select few. If your soul leaps with joy at the message revealed in this little book in such simple terms that it can no longer be misunderstood, distorted, or denied, you are. If your mind races with new possibilities for your own life and for people everywhere as a result of that message, you are.
If you are, you may find yourself beginning to live the messages that you have found there. And by your living of them, you will be silently inviting others to consider the dramatically alternative ideas that inform your experience, for others will not be able to ignore your behavior, and they will wonder what you know and how you have come to know it.
That will be the perfect time for you to extend what I call The Quiet Invitation. Your behavior, your life lived, is the first part of your Quiet Invitation. Others around you will soon desire to explore the extraordinary possibilities that your thoughts present. When they ask you how it can be that you move through the world so much of the time with such peace and joy and love, you will tell them. Quietly, without any attempt at "converting" or proselytizing, you will simply tell them what you understand of the world, of life, and of God.
You'll do this because you know that the ideas in What God Wants could turn your world upside-down-and because you see that your world could use a little upside-down turning right now. And you'll do it because you know that if someone like you does not do it, no one else will.
The message presented in What God Wants will come to the attention of many persons in positions of influence and visibility. It is too astonishing a message not to make its way to people of high profile within government, business, media, entertainment, sports, academia, and religion. It is also true that, of these, a handful may find that they actually agree with the message. Hardly any, however, will be able to admit it.
Prominent people of influence and power do not like to make too many other people uneasy. That's the problem with prominence. If you are married to your prominence, you are often divorced from your power. Prominent people cannot, therefore, be expected to do much in a public way to activate the ideas with which they may agree if those ideas are unconventional. Some do. Most do not.
Corruption comes in many forms, including corruption of the conscience, of the mind, and of the will. It's the last of these that is the most devastating.
Most corruption is not placed into the world by what people do, but by what they do not do. To do nothing is to do everything. Saying nothing is saying yes.
No, it turns out, has to be spoken.
Because it's difficult for people in prominent positions to say no to humanity's present ideas about God and about Life, new leadership will have to be found if new ideas are to reach a larger number of people for their consideration and exploration.
The first qualification for becoming one of these new leaders is will power. Humanity must regain its collective will, and new leaders must show it the way by leading the way.
That's where you come in.
Please consider the possibility that you brought yourself to awareness of the healing message of What God Wants at this moment in answer to a call from your own soul. It is a call to soar. It is a feeling of yearning from deep within for you to make a difference in a world of indifference.
Because of that indifference, our world is being taken from us. The life of which we have dreamed is slowly turning into the nightmare of which we have despaired, and it will continue to do so if we do not now wake up.
We have seen the sun set on the hopes of many. Yet, as Ernest Hemingway so eloquently said, the sun also rises. Let us not now sleep through the dawn. This is the time of the awakening of humanity.
Shall we arise, one by one, and gently wake each other?
