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 Two

As far as I can tell, the reason 6.9 billion people can say that they want peace, security, prosperity, health, and freedom yet not one person can seem to achieve it is relatively simple.  We all sit here and say that is what we want then instead of letting our thoughts and actions prove that to be true we instead put all our time, energy and focus on the opposite.  If we would stop putting so much energy into focusing on and thinking about what we don’t want and took that energy and put it into focusing on and thinking about what we do want, then we will achieve the peace, security, prosperity, health and freedom we claim to want.  Basically, instead of saying you’re anti-war, be pro-peace.  Instead of putting all your energy and focus into being against something put it into being for its opposite.
