5 Steps to World Peace – You In?

by Neale Donald Walsch –

How is it possible for 7 billion people to all want the same thing — peace, happiness, abundance, opportunity, safety, security and love — and be unable to get it?

Permit ourselves to acknowledge that some of our old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.  

 
Explore the possibility that there is something we do not understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which could change everything.

Announce that we are willing for new understandings of God and Life to now be brought forth, understandings that could produce a new way of life on this planet. 
Courageously examine these new understandings and, if they align with our personal inner truth and knowing, enlarge our belief system to include them.
Express our lives as a demonstration of our highest beliefs, rather than as a denial of them.

The Evolution Revolution

What is the Evolution Revolution?

Look, it’s really quite simple. If you’re totally okay with life on this planet right now—or if you think things are sad, but you can’t do anything about it—this is not for you. If, on the other hand, you see yourself as having the power, working with other committed people, to effect real change, then you have come to the right place.
But let’s be very clear at the outset: 

Despite having the word ‘revolution’ in our name, we are not supporting violence of any kind. On the contrary, what we propose is quite the opposite; social change through spiritual awakening producing impactful compassion. We are calling for the most dramatic shift in fundamental beliefs in human history.

Yet this is not about starting a new religion. This is about showing, in very clear terms at last, that there IS common ground, where all religions and non-believers can come together for the benefit of all humankind.
This is about changing the world as it is.
You in?

THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO – RIGHT NOW

We are going to do something on March 12 that could capture the attention of the entire world. Do you have a few minutes for me to tell you about it? It will take you approximately eight or nine minutes to read what I have written here and then a few more minutes to accept the invitation I wish to extend to you.
I know that seems like a lot of time in these busy, hectic days when all of us want to read everything in 90 seconds or less — but over the course of your life, you will see it as a minuscule time investment. So if you would grant me the favor of giving me those few minutes, I think it could make a real difference on our planet…and I know it could make a huge difference in your life.
I’d like to talk with you about the cause of the wildly rampant dysfunction we are seeing in our world today, and how — with really very little effort — we can change things so that we do not have to saddle our children and our grandchildren with all of this…or even worse… read more

There’s No Separation

by Neale Donald Walsch –

God exists by whatever name you want to call it. There’s no separation between you and God. You are a manifestation of the Divine, therefore, God exists in you, as you, and within you and God is having therefore, a conversation with you all the time.
There’s no separation between anything at all. We are in fact all one, and when we begin to act as if we were all one, act as a singular unit known as humanity, we will find our way to the place that we have been invited to go by life itself from the very beginning.
Very little on our planet is working like it should. Our political system is not working as it should… our economic system… ecological system… social system… spiritual system… not working to produce the results that were intended. They are actually producing the opposite of which they were intended to produce.
The economic systems haven’t produced abundance and prosperity for all, but quite the opposite. The political systems have not produced security and safety for all and cooperation among nations, but quite the opposite and so on.
What is the missing data here that we do not have in hand — the understanding of which, would change everything? I think the missing data is quite simple. The missing data is that there is nothing but unity.
We are all one and if we begin to operate politically, economically, socially, environmentally, educationally and spiritually as if that were true and not just an aphorism or nice statement but operating as if that were in fact the reality, all of life on earth would change, virtually overnight.

“The only way to transform the world is to re-think it. It’s not about one of us.  It’s about all of us. It’s not about money, it’s about love, And it’s not about out there, it’s in here. Such thoughts are miracles and they change everything.” –Marianne Williamson

The Looking Trap

by Neale Donald Walsch – 

It is amazing how many people are caught in the trap of being deeply concerned with how things are looking to others. Keeping Up Appearances has become, for some, an obsession. Many of us will even give up our own happiness (or our chance at it) in order to keep “looking good” in the eyes of others. This is beyond sad. It is tragic.

It is tragic because all we have is the Time of Our Life. It is the essential gift. It is the treasure of treasures. And it is not infinite, but finite. Indeed, it could run out at any moment.

During this Time of Our Life we should be having the time of our lives. Instead, many of us are living lives of dulled acceptance-and some are even living lives of quiet desperation. Waiting, waiting, for what, we know not. Just something, anything, other than what is going on right now, or at least richer, fuller, grander. Because there’s something missing, and we dare not name it, or the name itself will do us in.

It is, of course, love. We are lacking in love, and we are dying inside. We are lacking in someone TO love, and we are lacking in someone loving us. And who we are lacking in loving us is, in the supreme irony, ourselves.

Not finding it possible to love ourselves exactly as we are and exactly as we would like to be “showing up” if we could do whatever we wanted, we do, instead, whatever “others” want us to do, in order to acquire the love for which we so desperately yearn. We pay utmost attention to how we are looking.

I call this The Looking Trap. In it we are so confined in our thinking, so caught up in our appearances, so imprisoned in our outlook, that we have no outlook at all. We cannot look out of our own self-made prison. We cannot see over the walls of our own need for approval.

The Looking Trap binds people to the rigidity of what others would choose for them. It ties them down, limits their choices, dramatically alters their course, and all in the name of pleasing others even as the self is never pleased. Meanwhile, Time-that most precious of all life’s treasures-is running out.

You will never see this day again. You will never again see this week, this month, this year again. You will see this time only during the moment you are living it. Be sure, then, that you ARE “living it.” Try very hard not to be killing it. There shall be time enough after death to experiencing dying. It is time now to experience living. It is time now to spring free of The Looking Trap. 

Spring free, my soul!
Spring free, spring free!
And give me back, right now, to me.
I shall not see the time I took
To fret and stress o’er how I look.
I shall not have these days again.
For this is Now, and that was Then.

What’s gone is past, yet all’s not lost.
I’ll seize this day, forget the cost.
I’ll seize this time, forget the price.
I’ll seize this Now, and throw the dice!
My gamble’s won before the toss,
For now I have become the boss!

My life’s my own, my choices, mine.
I’ll take a stand, I’ll draw the line.
No more! No more will I grant you
The power to influence what I do.
No more! No more I’ll keep from me
The very things that set me free!

This day I claim again my choice.
This day I give myself a voice.
And how I look to you is not
Of my concern, and so you’ve got
No more power to wield o’er me.
My God, it’s true! I’ve set me free!
