It is okay to be at a place of struggle

Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn't struggle is the one who doesn't grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign -- and celebrate your struggle. Neale Donald Walsch

Waiting to see what happens is not a very good way to make decisions

Not to decide is to decide. What are you deciding right now by not deciding? What are you choosing by failing to choose? Is this how you want to live your life: by default? It is time for you to made a decision. Do you need a bigger signal than this? Neale Donald Walsch

Yearning for a new way will not produce it

Only ending the old way can do that. You cannot hold onto the old all the while declaring that you want something new. The old will defy the new; the old will deny the new; the old will decry the new. There is only one way to bring in the new. You must make room for it. Neale Donald Walsch

It sometimes looks like "one thing after the other," but really, it is Blessing After Blessing

I know, I know...you don't experience it that way. But that's because you don't see it that way. In this business of life, "What you see is what you get." If you think you are looking at struggle, struggle is what you will experience. If you decide that you are looking at a gift (even if you can't see it clearing in this exact moment), a gift is what you will get. Just wait. You'll see. I mean that literally. You will see. Neale Donald Walsch

There is a solution

There is. But you must keep going to find it. You cannot stop, you cannot give up. This is about more than just patience. This is about more than just persistence. This is about absolute knowing that God is on your side. When you know this, you never give up...and the sense of struggle goes away. You simply keep moving forward knowing that, in the end, all will work out. And that along the way there will be great insights and wonderful remembering. Neale Donald Walsch

There is a book, waiting for you to read

It carries a wonderful message for you. This may be a book that you started, then set aside. Or it may be a text that you have just heard about and that is now calling out to you. Whichever it is, listen to the calling. Follow the impulse. Read the book. Its time is now. Neale Donald Walsch

Someone is looking up to you now, preparing to follow your example

Let this guide your next choice. We often think that we are operating in a vacuum, that no one is watching us, that our actions are mostly private. Yet, what if you knew that your every thought, word, and deed today was going to be imitated by one who admires you? Can you feel good about what you are demonstrating? Wonderful. If your answer is yes, wonderful! Neale Donald Walsch

Money is not the issue

Having the courage to give your highest gift is the issue. There is no security in doing something for a living when you are dying inside while doing it. That is taking care of the body at the expense of the soul. And a withering soul cannot help but produce a withering body. So do not think you are "taking care of yourself" by killing your spirit to keep your body alive. How long will you put off what you are dying to do? Neale Donald Walsch

It is okay to want to make lots of plans, but it is also okay to make lots of room for which planning can never produce

It's sometimes nice to get everything decided, settled, and arranged. But you may want to leave room in your life for spontaneity. Some of the best choices are made "on the fly." Some of the best outcomes are created by not needing anything specific to happen. Who and how and why and when and where to love often falls into this category. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

Winning an argument is never the goal of a true spiritual master

Winning someone's heart is. The setting aside of one's integrity is not required to win someone's heart, but the setting aside of one's anger may be. It is possible to make a point without making an enemy. It is possible to be right without being righteous. Debating does not have to be debasing. If there is someone with whom you are disagreeing this day, would it not be wonderful of you to disagree without being disagreeable? Neale Donald Walsch

Love is the center and the core of everything, and Self is the place where all love must begin

Those who love others grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high toleration and acceptance of themselves. You cannot show another a part of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin: with the person in the mirror. Will you not love yourself grandly today? For the world's sake? Neale Donald Walsch

Mastery is not measured by the number of terrible things you eliminate from your life, but by the number of times you eliminate calling them terrible

The Buddha brought suffering onto himself, to look into the face of it, to see if he was that, and, if not, to see who he then was. Jesus allowed himself to be crucified, to demonstrate who he was. And what do you think you are doing here? Why bother with this relative world if not to know yourself in your own experience? And how else to do that except through the encountering of that which you are not? Neale Donald Walsch

"Why?" is the most useless question in the universe

The only question with any meaning is "What?" Asking "Why is this happening?" can only disempower you. Asking "What do I want to make of this?" does exactly the opposite. Here is a great secret: the Why of anything is to produce the What of everything. Think about that for a moment. In fact, think about it for the rest of the day. Neale Donald Walsch

Fun is not defined as the absence of challenging circumstances, but as the absence of anger about them

Of course, it is natural to become "fed up" with some of the worst conditions of physical life. Yet the fun of life is in embracing a perspective that allows you to look into the face of those conditions and demonstrate Who You Are in spite of them. "Where is the fun in that?" you might say. The fun is in the victory, my friend. The fun is in the victory. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch
