Steve & Neale’s Blog
A woman wrote to me two days ago at CWG Connect asking if it was okay to express her fears about things going on in her life openly and authentically with others. She felt that by doing so, she was offering an example to others, making it possible for them, too, to be open and honest about their fears. --- thus to heal them.
She wanted to know if this made spiritual sense, according to Conversations with God. As I was creating my reply, I realized that I was producing something that I wish everyone could see and read. It is one of the most precise, concise, clear and spiritually lucid discourses that has come through me on the Way and Why of Life as it is.
My Dear Jeanette…As I understand it, the Soul migrates (in a sense) from the Realm of the Absolute (also called The Realm of the Spiritual) to the Realm of the Relative (also called The Realm of the Physical) in order to experience fully the Fullness of Who and What It Really Is: namely…Divinity Incarnate.
God’s greatest desire is to experience Itself completely, in all its glory. Yet in the Realm of the Absolute there is nothing else BUT God…nothing else BUT glory…and so, God can know Itself absolutely, but the experience of Itself can only occur in the Realm of the Relative, where the Totality of God exists in relative terms.
Therefore we experience, in physical life, what we call “good” and “evil,” “happiness” and “sadness,” “joy” and “pain”—-and all of the conditions that our limited awareness causes us to define as “dualities” in our lives.
Yet when our awareness increases, we begin to see all of it as One Single Energy—-I shall call it the Essential Essence—-simply manifesting in different forms. As an example of this, let us use the apparent duality of “hot” and “cold.” Often we see these conditions as two different things—-“opposites”, even—-yet looked at from afar we see that they are simply varying degrees of the SAME thing…which we call “Temperature.”
In the same way, every aspect of life is simply the same thing, Divinity, simply expressing in varying degrees. Even Fear is simply Love—-the Essential Essence—-expressing in lesser degree. If we did not Love anything, we would Fear nothing. Can you see that?
Once we see this, we decry nothing, we condemn nothing, we reject nothing, but embrace and accept everything in life as the Perfection Expression of Perfection Itself.
In so doing, the energy that we hold around any given situation, event, or circumstance shifts dramatically, moving from what we would call “negative” to what we would call “positive”—-and this, in turn, alters dramatically the energy that we project, that we send out, regarding any particular occurrence. With the pouring of our positive energy all over that occurrence or circumstance, our experience of it is transformed. We no longer “suffer”—-although we may still be in pain (emotional or physical).
We are taught in Conversations with God that “pain” is an objective occurrence, whereas “suffering” is the result of our thought about the pain. Suffering occurs when our thought about our pain is that “this shouldn’t be happening. This is wrong. This in unfair,” etc. Yet when we accept our pain as the Perfect expression of Perfection Itself (as a woman in childbirth might experience it), our suffering dissipates and dissolves. The pain may remain, but the suffering disappears. Even death is not experienced in a negative way, but as the Perfect Next Event. Hence: “O Death! Where is thy sting?”
Now you are talking about Fear here, Jeanette, and I agree with you that speaking authentically and openly (and even extensively) about our Fears can be an extraordinarily beneficial thing.CWG says: “What you resist persists, and what you look at disappears. That is, it ceases to have its illusory form.”
This was one of the greatest messages we were given in Conversations with God.
So yes, speaking into our Fear is powerful, indeed. And yes, I agree with you: It sets an example for others, allowing others, as well, to “be okay” with the fact that they, too, have Fears…and to be okay with talking about them.
All of this is just a re-stating of what you have said above. So I observe that you understand theCWG cosmology completely, and seem to be living by it with extraordinary grace.
What I observe about this as well is that it DOES that “courage” to do this. Living by the advanced theological concepts of Conversations with God (which happen to be nothing more than clarifying re-statements of the highest truths of all the world’s great religions) is not easy. (Until it is. Until it becomes second nature. Until it easily and continuously expresses our TRUEnature.) So while you did not share with us your particular “story” in order to hear choruses of praise for your courage, still, it is understandable and justifiable that you would hear them. All of us recognize courage when we see it, and it is natural that we would want to praise it.
You have said here that you speak of your Fears not to garner praise for your courage, but to offer an example to others who may also be afraid of something in their life, but be reluctant to discuss them. Your intention does not reduce in any way the courage that it takes to face your life as you have done. That is why I wrote to you, in response to your first entry, the following:
“I will join the chorus of people who have told you how brave you are! I know that you will touch many lives through the living of your own in the courageous way you have chosen.”
I joyfully stand by every word of my first response! And I do not experience you as being “still somewhat confused” at all, but as being extraordinarily clear in every word that you have written above. Particularly your summarizing statement: “Perhaps, rather than shun fear behaviours, we would do better to embrace them, embrace them as great because now they are in the open they can be explored and will naturally dissipate?” This is pure Conversations with God, re-stated and re-phrased.
You understand things perfectly, Jeanette. And now, may you know and experience that God has blessed you, and given you this glorious opportunity to express the glory of Divinity Itself—-in, as, and through you.
If you write as clearly in your book as you have written here, you will give all those who read it a great blessing—-even as you have bestowed a wonderful grace upon us here and now.
Shared with you lovingly…Neale.Posted March 4th, 2014 by Neale Donald Walsch
A mind preoccupied with planning pays homage to the idol of control.
For one day, try living in connection without your day planner.
See how it feels and if it works for you.Posted February 26th, 2014 by Steve Farrell
Dear God (One Presence),
Fill me with Your love, light, peace and understanding.
Fill me full. Permit my heart to beat with Your heart and my lungs to breath with You. Animate me from head to toe with Your love and light.
There are so many who feel alone and unworthy. Touch these people through me. Express fully through me that they may feel Your Presence. Love through me. Heal through me. Prosper through me.
Let no person, animal or life form go untouched. Express through me Beloved that the whole world may feel the depth and fullness of Your love.
Many are joining together in service. May we see our true Self: beautiful, pure, whole expressions of You and may we be conduits of Your love, peace and healing. May the Earth receive this blessing and may humanity and life on Earth enter the dawn of a new day; a day filled with health, wellbeing, harmony and happiness.

For the world must now invent itself anew. Yet honor the past as you envision the future. Do not completely reject old beliefs, nor require anyone else to. Enlarge upon them, alter them where alteration seems appropriate, and invite others to do the same.
Let your New Spirituality be not the rejection, but the fulfillment, of all that your old religious laws and your ancient prophets have promised you. And when others ask what you are doing, say: Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

We envision us living in a world where everyone sees everyone else in their highest light, where everyone sees the Godspark in everyone else; and where everyone holds a vision in their minds of everyone else living their lives happily, healthfully, freely, abundantly, and fulfilled in every way.
We imagine us living in a world where people everywhere now understand the difference between our preferences and our judgments; where we understand that each has their preferences (I like chocolate - you like vanilla), but that it does not serve us whatsoever to judge another (because they might like vanilla and you don't care for it). We see them in their highest light, regardless of all their predilections, proclivities, and preferences.
And now that we are seeing each other in the highest light, it's easy for us to take the next step and see our entire world in its highest light, and we hold that vision - knowing that our thoughts are creating our future - until we are experiencing it all around us.
Indeed, we have created an amazing, extraordinary new world for ourselves simply by enough of us holding the thought of it in its highest light.

We are being told by the Company of Heaven that it is impossible for us to comprehend with our finite minds the magnitude of what the activation of the genetic codes containing our Divine Potential will mean for Humanity. A vitally important facet of what this activation will do, however, is accelerate the Divine Alchemy taking place within our Earthly Bodies. This Divine Alchemy is literally transforming our 3rd-dimensional carbon-based planetary cells into 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Light Cells. In 2014, we will begin to experience for the very first time in our Earthly sojourn, tangible changes in our physical body that will indicate we are indeed reversing the aging process and transforming our physical body into a Crystalline Solar Light Body.

Might this be a ﬁne stretch of eternity during which to declare that there is clearly something we don’t fully understand about God, the understanding of which would change everything?
To put it more dramatically, is it possible that unless we enlarge and expand our primitive ideas about God and about Life in the decades just ahead, we may ﬁnd that we have backed ourselves into a corner, from which there is no escape?
Conversations with God told us that humanity nearly rendered itself extinct once before. Barely enough of us survived to regenerate the species and start over. Are we at this same turning point again? Have we arrived once more at the intersection where theology meets cosmology meets sociology meets pathology?
Right now we are still embracing a Separation Theology. That is, a way of looking at God that insists that we are “over here” and God is “over there.”
The problem with a Separation Theology is that it produces a Separation Cosmology. That is, a way of looking at all of life that says that everything is separate from everything else.
And a Separation Cosmology produces a Separation Psychology. That is, a psychological viewpoint that says that I am over here and you are over there.
And a Separation Psychology produces a Separation Sociology. That is, a way of socializing with each other that encourages the entire human society to act as separate entities serving their own separate interests.
And a Separation Sociology produces a Separation Pathology. That is, pathological behaviors of self-destruction, engaged in individually and collectively, and producing suﬀering, conﬂict, violence, and death by our own hands—as evidenced everywhere on our planet throughout human history.
Only when our Separation Theology is replaced by a Oneness Theology will our pathology be healed. We have been diﬀerentiated from God, but not separated from God, even as your ﬁngers are diﬀerentiated but not separated from your hand. We must come to understand that all of life is One. This is the ﬁrst step. It is the jumping-oﬀ point. It is the beginning of the end of how things now are. It is the start of a new creation, of a new tomorrow. It is the New Cultural Story of Humanity.
Oneness is not a characteristic of life. Life is a characteristic of Oneness. This is what we have not understood about our existence on the Earth, the understanding of which would change everything.
Life is the expression of Oneness Itself. God is the expression of Life Itself. God and Life are One. You are a part of Life. You do not and cannot stand outside of it. Therefore you are a part of God. It is a circle.
It cannot be broken.

La Ilaha IllaAllah.
(There is nothing other than the One).
--Qur’an 37:35 and 47:19Posted January 14th, 2014 by Steve Farrell
After years of imprisonment where Nelson Mandela navigated through his personal shadowlands and the shadowlands of his people, he arose renewed, walking through to manifest his intent. From a distance Marianne Williamson walked through her own shadowlands into the space where she connected with her light and the oneness of us all in the highest light. From this place of connection she wrote the words Mr. Mandela would choose for his inaugural speech.
Drawing from this clear picture, I have a vision for each of us easily and clearly navigating our own shadowlands by turning on the focusing power of intending. As we intend and agree for the highest good of all, I see us increasingly knowing the resonance of highest light. In knowing highest light resonance we continue experiencing the relief and ease of finding the clearest path. We navigate successfully past our own shadowlands and the outdated beliefs of mass consciousness . . . Releasing the bondage of lower resonances, we rise fully, wholly, completely into the radiance of the highest selves we have ever known. In this energy of potential and from this state of being, I see us manifesting our exquisite desires and most glorious solutions for the highest good of all.
From this place, Marianne's words chosen by Nelson for his speech become. . . . Our Inaugural Speech! I invite you to own them in first person for the fullest experience.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
How many times must I tell you about your Greatness and in how many ways? Of course, you are far greater than you credit yourself with, and so is everyone else. Everyone! Made in My image, what can you be but great? You can be great now. Why not? What holds you back? Certainly, not I.
This is not ego-great We speak of. Absolutely not. Humility shines Greatness. Humility makes it possible for your Greatness to reveal itself and to be seen. When you reveal your Greatness, you are not thinking of yourself at all. You are not thinking the least bit about how you are looked upon. In Greatness, you go beyond thoughts of yourself. You transcend yourself…
