The price of magic (or "if you are too good")

Good Thursday! I hope you are well. :) I am writing from Santa Barbara, where I came to celebrate my birthday and the wedding of a friend. (Not to mention the very practical things I have to deal with.) I recently told you about the delicious feeling of community that has settled in my life ... You can see on the left three of the wonderful people who have contributed to it, with who I celebrated last Saturday. I have a very good imagination, but I can hardly imagine anything more magical than sharing a healthy meal with them. I offer you today a reflection inspired by a conversation with another very beautiful (too beautiful?) Person that I had the happiness to mix lately. I would not be surprised if you recognized it. I'm happy to meet you this morning ... And I hope you find this text...

All the changes occurring right now on this planet are leading to a better life for all

The movement here is going to be back to basics, back to what matters, back to our true values in families, in relationships, in business and commerce, in politics, and in the world. Do not worry, therefore. This is the Time which has been predicted. And only good will come of it. Neale Donald Walsch

Negative passions may run high, but they do not have to rule you

Your inner peace, and the sanctity of your being, are not worth trashing because of some negative feeling you have about something. Just let it go, and return to the knowing and experiencing of who you really are. Try not to abandon the self. Try very hard. In the end, your soul will be so grateful. Neale Donald Walsch

The time has come to get clear about who you are and what you choose

There come moments in every person's life when a decision is necessary. A big decision. A major choice. Such a time is now. What you get to choose today is who you are and who you choose to be, and what you wish to experience in your life. Remember, not to decide is to decide. Neale Donald Walsch

No financial crisis can overpower the peace of God

At a time of extraordinary uncertainty, people are turning everywhere for answers. How about to God? Those who know God as a living reality in their lives are finding peace in the midst of turmoil, security in the face of fear. It's all, in the end, about priorities. Life priorities. Do your priorities have to do with the body? Or with the soul? Neale Donald Walsch

There is a Chinese proverb: Great doubts deep wisdom

Small doubts little wisdom. Never stop doubting, never stop questioning, never, ever assume you have all the answers. Having all the answers kills the question itself; renders it lifeless -- and you, too... Keep looking, keep seeking. Never, ever find it all. Because when you find it all, you deny that there is more. And there is never not more. Neale Donald Walsch

False modesty will get you nowhere -- nor will genuine modesty when it is not required

Modesty is rarely required by Life, did you know that? It's true. People are more self-deprecating than they ever need to be. God says it's okay to celebrate your self. Honor the self, and delight in expressing your talents and your gifts. It is through the happy sharing of your treasures that you show other people that they are treasured. Always, always remember that. Neale Donald Walsch

Enthusiasm means everything

Not just a little. Everything. If you are involved in some kind of project right now, or launching any personal endeavor, your enthusiasm (or lack of it) will directly determine how successful this undertaking will be. If you are not excited at the core of your being by it, drop it right now. If you are excited at the core of your being, demonstrate that in everything you think and say and do. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

The next step is the most important step

Take it now. Do not wait. Life is not going to come down there and sprinkle glitter dust on your shoulders to let you know that you are Good...or that you are walking the Right Path...or that you are making the Best Decision. Take the next step. Right now. Stop waiting for a "sign" from the "gods." Your sign is your intuition, wrapped in your desire. Hesitation is not a stopping place on the road to heaven. Neale Donald Walsch

Desire is a powerful force can be used to make things happen

Marcia Weider said that, and she was right. Yet do not confuse desire with expectation, or with need. Desire has an entirely different quality to it. You can desire something without needing or requiring it. That little difference makes everything work. That little difference is the whole trick. Desire, do not Require. To desire propels. To require compels. Life will not be compelled, but it can be coaxed... Whoever or whatever you are trying to compel today, stop it. Just...fall back into the soft cotton of desire. Neale Donald Walsch

Most dramatic conflicts are perhaps those take place not between men, but between a man and himself

Love tolerates human foibles, faults, and failings

When someone does something you don't like, try toleration. Tell them in your nicest way that you do not feel good about what occurred or what was said, but try hard not to cold-shoulder them, and block them out of any warm connection with you. All you teach them by that is to be afraid of you -- by making them afraid of losing you...or at least the warmth of their connection with you. This is, of course, what some people say God does to us... Give people the same break you would like God (and other people, for that matter) to give you. Neale Donald Walsch

True ambition is not what you thought it was

Bill, the man who co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous, said that, and he was right. "True ambition," he said, "is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God." What is your ambition for today? What is on the top of your priority list? What are you hoping to do today? What are you hoping to be? Your answer to this question will create not just the day, but you. Neale Donald Walsch

The word salvation in the Bible means perfect health, harmony, and freedom

Emmet Fox said that, and he was right. These things are the will of God for man, he said, and he was right again. When you ponder how to achieve your 'salvation,' make sure you understand, first, what 'salvation' is. We are seeking here to save ourselves from our own misunderstandings about Life and How It Is, and about Who We Really Are. Move into the fullness of your True Identity, and watch your whole life change. Neale Donald Walsch

You will benefit enormously if you simply strive to be a good person

Strive to live rightly. This will not always be easy. It will require real work, real dedication, real commitment to the Journey of Your Soul. Yet in the end, I trust in God that it will be so very worth it, for the reward is Self Realization. To know the Self as Who You Really Are is the goal and the opportunity of each lifetime. To expand your definition of that is the invitation. I admire and deeply respect and salute you. Neale Donald Walsch
