Conversations with Humanity

In one of his latest books, “The Storm before the Calm”, Neale Walsch describes what he believes is happening in 2012 and the new world we could be creating.  He suggests we start a <Conversation with Humanity> in order to decide what this new world will look like.  To start this conversation, he asks some questions,  the first of which was answered by members of a discussion group who happens to be incarcerated at this time. 

The first question is this:  “How is it possible that 6.9 billion people can all claim to want the same thing (peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness, and love) and be singularly unable to get it?”

Here are some of the answers this group gave.  Please join in this conversation.

  Question One-Anwer One

by MB

Our group started answering the first question in Neale’s new book.  The answers were so varied just as I though they would be.

One was “Our way is the only way”, speaking of religions.  Another said it was “a learned experience”.  There were so many good answers that it took up the whole time we had together before some had to leave.

Moments ago, I had to borrow the book back from an inmate who was reading it.  It is on loan to us from the original owner.  I wanted to write out the questions so we could continue asking them in our group.  I asked him what would be his answer.  It left me with my jaw dropped to the floor.  “It’s because our governments don’t want us to have that because there would be no more need for governments”.  I felt, but didn’t say, “That goes for most of the world’s religions too.”  They might change dramatically or go out of existence.”  Is that what God wants?  Will the 22nd of December 2012 be day one of our true birth into the cosmic community of evolved beings?  The end of our gestation period?  I hope we are all around to see it.  Everyone wanting the same thing (peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness, and love).  There would be no need for the military or law enforcement of any kind.  What a wonderful world it will be.

My own answer was pale in comparison to that.  I merely said, “When I read the book “The Secret” and Neale’s “Happier than God”, one thing stood out clearly in my mind.

The wording we use is why we never get it.

The Universe, or God as some put it, can only deliver what you ask.  If you say you want something, the Universe  will say, “Okay, I will give you the wanting of that.”

So it does.  We have gone on for millennia wanting this or that and the Universe has delivered the “wanting” of it.

Gratitude is the secret, and remembering “what you resist persists”.  Acceptance plays a huge role as well.  Our group went on discussing how everything is what we perceive it to be, how everything is an illusion, we are just actors in a play, and when I opened my copy of “Happier than God” moments ago, I saw Neale’s two prayers that truly express gratitude.

You can substitute the word God for whatever your belief may be; “Dear God, I thank you today for that which is in my world and in my life.  I rest my heart in the knowing that I will yet see pain turn into joy, sorrow into gladness, and even death into everlasting life.”  Then his second: “Thank you, God, for helping me understand that this problem has already been solved for me.”

But I’m in prison you say!  So am I.  Look at the words there.  Are you showing gratitude to your God for already solving the problem for you?  Your freedom is on its way.  Use the suggestion  starting on page 198 of “Happier than God”.  Most of us can’t go to the websites mentioned there but we can start our own groups or write down our thoughts about this first question and send them to Janine.  Maybe she can publish a few and we can form our own group having our own “conversation with Humanity”.  Our own blog of sorts, with Freedom Inside.

Let’s face it.  You’ve read this article.  If you’ve read any of Neale’s books and want to get involved, get involved!  Get some paper, a pen, an envelope and right now or today during lockdown, write to Janine, letting her know your thoughts on the first question.  That’s if you truly want to make a change and have a conversation with humanity.

As a fellow inmate I will continue to ask the questions presented and who knows what might end up in book two or three of the Conversations with Humanity series.

Say your prayer, meditate on what it is we all truly desire and prefer in the world.  As “The Secret” tells us to do; let’s manifest this in our lives and in our world.  We can even manifest it right here in our prisons (peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness and love).  Do it now!

With metta to all
