Notes from Conversations With God, Book 3
Everything that has happened in your life has happened perfectly in order for you – and all the souls involved with you – to grow in exactly the way you’ve needed and wanted to grow. –3 Be gentler with yourself. Stop judging yourself. – 3 Only when you require no approval from outside yourself can you own yourself. So long as you are still worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them.-4 You teach what you have to learn. Seek only to be genuine. Strive to be sincere. Guilt and fear are our only enemies. - 5 Love and awareness are our true friends. Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience. All states of mind reproduce themselves. What you act as if you are, you become. Whatever you choose for yourself, give to another. Whatever you are being, you are becoming. The choices of spirit are always the highest choices. -23 The five natural emotions are: grief, anger, envy, fear and love. Love and fear sponsor all thoughts. Grief allows you to say goodbye when you don’t want to say goodbye. Repressed grief leads to depression. Anger is a way to say “No, thank you.” Repressed anger leads to rage. Envy helps us improve, to strive to do better. Repressed envy becomes jealousy. Fears are learned, except for the two natural fears of falling and loud noises. Natural fear gives caution. Repressed fear becomes panic. Love should be encouraged in children, both giving and receiving. Repressed love becomes possessiveness. Sex is intended to be one of life’s most joyful celebrations. -30 Power comes from inner strength. Act as if you are separate from nothing, and no one, and you will heal your world quickly. - 44 The purpose of your soul is to be and express Who You Really Are. - 49 Thought control is the highest form of prayer. Think only on good things – see only perfection, express only gratefulness and imagine only what manifestation of perfection you choose next (especially when things look bleak). This is the formula for tranquility, the process of peace and the awareness leading to joy. - 60 Your perspective creates your thoughts and your thoughts create everything. See only perfection. 67 Let this be your greatest joy – to give people back to themselves – to help them remember Who They Really Are. You always have 3 choices: 1. Allow your uncontrolled thoughts to create The Moment. 2. Allow your creative consciousness to create The Moment. 3. Allow the collective consciousness to create The Moment. Seek beings of high consciousness. I can not overemphasize the importance of the company you keep. 72 When you realize that the game never ends, you will be filled at once with awe and anticipation, wonder and excitement, joy and exhilaration.
You are at choice, always, about what you wish to experience. You can create via uncontrolled thoughts, creative consciousness or collective consciousness. The Universe knows nothing except how to grant your fondest wish, your greatest desire. … become consciously aware of this and the game of delusion is over. Your life is a reflection of what you desire, and what you believe you may have of what you desire. I cannot give you what you do not believe you may have. -81 Do not “try to believe” you can do things. Instead, move to a state of total awareness. You are all saints and saviors. …the very message they (saints and saviors) have been bringing you. When you honor the guru, you say “I see you.” …outward evidence of your inner reality. You are worthy. Unworthiness is the worst indictment ever visited upon the human race. What you have done is unimportant compared to what you are about to do. How you have erred is insignificant compared to how you are about to create. 87 The future! That is where your life and truth is, not in the past. Many insist that the values they have are the right and perfect ones. Do not stay “stuck” in your present beliefs and customs that halt your evolution. Remaining the same, or seeking to, moves against the laws of life. Allow your deepest truths to be altered. Alter them yourself, for goodness sake. For your new idea of Who You Are is where the growth is. Your new idea about all of it is where the excitement is, where the creation is, where God-in –you is made manifest and becomes fully realized. Be open, therefore, be OPEN. Nothing in this Universe occurs by accident. Mourning for those who have died is the last thing they would want you to do. If you experienced what you call the afterlife for one moment, …you would smile the biggest smile at their funeral, and let joy fill your heart. 96 The 3 experiences after “death”: 1. Uncontrolled thoughts => purgatory. 2. Conscious creation => “Heaven” 3. Collective Consciousness of All That Is => Nirvana, bliss of the Oneness. Act out of your knowingness in every moment. Keep acting on what you know, rather than what the world of illusion is showing you. Stay with it, no matter how deceiving appearances are. 100 The day will come when we speak as One. That day will come for all people. There is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and no one you have to “be”, except exactly who you’re being right now. Ecstasy would not be ecstasy without the time when there was no ecstasy. Staying at the level of mastery involves moving in and out of ecstasy. Then you can move in and out of the ecstasy and still be joyful always. You are joyful simply knowing ecstasy is. Search your inner wisdom. See what you are called to do. Then do it. If that means writing your politicians and industrialists to ask them to take actions on environmental abuses that could lead to earth changes, do it. Seek to get in touch with the perfection of all things. Know that you will be exactly where you have to be in order to experience exactly what you choose as you go about creating Who You Really Are. It is insane to think that endless suffering is what God requires, and that a quick, humane end to the suffering is wrong. It is no more immoral to kill yourself quickly than it is to kill yourself slowly. In a primitive society,… your lives are structured around seeking and experiencing pleasures of the body. [vs. pleasures of the soul.] [Q. We are in first … grade in this planet?] My child, you are not even in kindergarten. You are in nursery school.
What you resist, persists. What you deny, you declare. What you declare, you create. Acceptance of something places you in control of it. That which you deny you cannot control, for you have said it is not there. Therefore, what you deny controls you. The fast track of evolution begins with admitting and accepting what is, not what is not. Study the chakra centers and what they mean. If you want a yardstick with which to judge whether a thing is good for the human race or not, ask yourself this question: What would happen if everyone did it? One engages in sex because it is the natural thing to do, not to procreate the species. The biological imperative is not to guarantee the survival of the species, but to experience the Oneness which is the true nature of your being. Read the writings of Deepak Chopra. 157 The soul is lightness and freedom, peace and joy, limitlessness and painlessness, perfect wisdom and perfect love. The soul leaves the body daily, through sleep. The soul finds the experience of embracing the body extremely difficult. That is why babies sleep a lot. The more your soul knows that it came to the body for a reason, with a purpose, to make the best use of the time it has with the body, the less sleep it needs. The person of great wisdom needs little sleep. Daily meditation is one of the best tools with which to create the experience of awareness. With it, you can even leave your body while you are “awake”. There is also stopping, walking, doing and sexual meditation. Stopping, even just for a moment, can be blessed. When you walk in this state, you breathe in every flower, you fly with every bird, you feel every crunch beneath your feet. When you “do” in this state, you turn whatever you are doing into a meditation, and thus, into a gift, an offering, from you to your soul, and from your soul to The All. When you experience sexual energy exchange in this state, you know the highest truth of Who You Are. The heart of your lover becomes your home. The body of your lover becomes your own. Your soul no longer imagines itself separate from anything. Just stop everything for one moment, and smile. At nothing. Just because it feels good. Just because your heart knows a secret. And because your soul knows what the secret is. Smile at that. Smile a lot. It will cure whatever ails you. Breathe. That is another tool. Breathe long and deep. Breathe slowly and gently. Breathe in the soft, sweet nothingness of life, so full of energy, so full of love. It is God’s love you are breathing. Breathe deeply, and you can feel it. Breathe very, very deeply, and the love will make you cry. For Joy. For you have met your God, and your God has introduced you to your soul. Seek to walk in awareness. Recognize that in this life most people are sleepwalking. Seek to experience all the peace and joy, limitlessness and freedom, wisdom and love that Oneness brings. You eventually become totally aware of Who You Are. Daily meditation is one way you may achieve this. Yet it requires commitment, dedication – a decision to seek inner experience, not outer reward. All of life becomes a meditation. You are always One with Me. You are forever welcome. Welcome home. For your home is in My heart, and Mine in yours. We are all that is, all that ever was, and all that ever will be, world without end. Amen. 166 You came here for a particular reason, and your Divine purpose would be thwarted if you understood how everything is put together. Your mind is not in your head. It is in every cell of your body. The mind is really an energy. The soul is larger than the body. It is not carried within the body, but carries the body within it. Similarly, the Soul of God contains the Universe, and holds it together.
Divine Dichotomy holds that it is possible for two apparently contradictory truths to exist simultaneously in the same place. In the realm of the relative, you have created the experience of that which you “call” evil, so that you can experience love, not just “know” that love is All There Is. You can not experience something when there is nothing else but that. In ultimate reality, there is no such thing as good and evil. All there is, is love. Here we have a Divine Dichotomy. It is the very act of behaving differently which makes it possible for That Which Is All to manifest as That Which Is Many. Thus, the Divine Dichotomy: There is only One of us. There are Many of us. Where there is awareness of Me, you can never be alone. 182 That which you give to others, you give to yourself. Because there is only One of Us. Do unto others as you would have it done onto you. The three tools of creation are thought, word and action. You teach what you have to learn. You deny your own greatness as you deny the existence of Me in you. Every thought of yourself as smaller than you really are is a denial of me. Do not allow your life to represent anything but the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about Who You Are. Public declaration is the highest form of visioning. Everyone knows Who They Are in their heart. If they open their heart, if they share with others their heart’s desire, if they live their heartfelt truth, they fill their world with magnificence. Always declare Me as Source, and no one will mind you declaring yourself as great. You’re lightening up. This is what is meant by enlightenment. Some souls have “volunteered” to be called “young”, and some to be called “old.” Similarly, some have chosen to be called “good” and some “bad”, so that We can know Ourselves completely. And this is why no soul is ever punished. This is all beautifully explained in the children’s storybook The Little Soul and the Sun, which lays it out simply, for a child to understand. 196 Loving everyone full out is the most joyful thing you can do. In birth, the soul finds itself constricted within the awful limitations of a body, and at death escapes those constrictions again. It does the same thing during sleep. Partners do not usually stop loving each other. It is the limitations they place on each other that creates rebellion. The soul will always rebel at limitation. Of any kind. Life’s largest question is always: Who Am I with regard to anything, in relationship to anything; Who Am I, and Who Do I Choose to Be? The answer to that question is the answer to every question. You are Love. Love is all there is. There is nothing which is not love. Fear is that which you are not. Fear is the opposite of love, created in your reality so that you know experientially That Which You Are. Think of these words as the same thing: God, Life, Love, Unlimited, Eternal and Free. You are all of these and will seek to experience yourself as all of these things sooner or later, depending on when you get over your fears (that which you are not). You will seek to experience That Which You Are when you are through experiencing that which you are not. [Divine Dichotomies]. Each finger is different, yet it is all the same hand. All people are One, yet no two people are alike. You can not, therefore, love two people in the same way, because love is a unique response to that which is unique. Your decision to express love should be a free choice, made over and over, not a onetime promise leading to obligation and then resentment.
There is only one sacred promise – to tell and live your truth. All other promises are forfeiture of freedom, and that can never be sacred. For freedom is Who You Are. If you forfeit freedom, you forfeit your Self. 210 Since change is the only thing constant about you, you can not truthfully promise to always be the same. The master is one who creates a high level of consistency intentionally. A master, therefore, is a person who – quite literally – knows what he is doing. She also knows why. More damage has been done to others by persons leading live of quiet desperation (doing what they felt they “had” to do) than ever was done by persons freely doing what they wanted to do. All things that proceed from you, return to you sevenfold. Life is about creating the highest quality giving, not the highest quality getting. In the New Culture, “success” will be measured by how much you cause others to amass. Most people have a very difficult time with marriage, and do not like what it does to them. Masters cannot truthfully make the statement that your present construct of marriage seeks to make: that one person is more special to them than another. You cannot stand the thought of a God who loves no one in a way that is more special than any other, and so you create fictions about a God who only loves certain people for certain reasons. And you call these fictions Religions. I call them blasphemies. Your purpose in becoming human and the purpose of all of life is: To decide and to declare, to create and to express, to experience and to fulfill, Who You Really Are. To re-create yourself anew in every moment in the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you had about Who You Really Are. You say where you want to go is to a place where you can truly know God and love God. I am observing that your religions do not take you there. You religions have caused you not to love God, but to fear God. You religions encourage you to kill each other, condemn each other and make each other “wrong”. You say you want marriage to take you to the land of eternal bliss, and instead it takes you to bitterness, anger and regret. You say you want your governments to ensure peace, freedom and domestic tranquility, and I observe they lead you to war, increasing lack of freedom, and domestic violence and upheaval. You have made little progress due to the First Human Cultural Myth [human beings are inherently evil] and all the other myths which necessarily follow. The problem is that your cultural myth is at variance with your basic instinct. The Second Human Cultural Myth [survival of the “fittest”] holds that some of you are strong and some weak and that, to survive, you have to be one of the strong. Yet your “basic instinct” is not survival, but rather, fairness, oneness and love. Another basic instinct of all living things is to express uniqueness, not sameness. Societal mechanisms seeking to produce true equality [sameness] work against the grandest idea and highest purpose, to truly re-create anew. Equality of opportunity is what is required, not equality in fact. This is called fairness. Freedom of opportunity can be created by societal systems that allow society to meet the basic survival needs of every individual, freeing all beings to pursue self-development and self-creation, rather than self-survival. In enlightened societies, one of its members would not be allowed to suffer, if there were enough for all. Love has no requirements. That’s what makes it love. If your love for another carries requirements, then it is not love at all, but some counterfeit version.- 230 When you are being kind and considerate, caring and sharing, compassionate and loving with others, you are giving your Self the grandest experience for which you came into the
body. Yet, if you are this kind of person, you will start being these things with yourself. You will put yourself first in these matters. - 233 This is why you took a body. Because only in the physical realm of the relative could you know yourself as these things. In the realm of the absolute from which you have come, this experience of knowing is impossible. – 232 If you are seeking to be love, you will do loving things with others. Not for others, with others, for your Self, so you can actualize and experience your grandest idea about your Self and Who You Really Are. Everything you need in life...all the love, all the wisdom, all the insight, all the power, all the knowledge, all the understanding, all the nurturing, all the compassion, and all the strength resides within you. - 237 It is much more difficult to free someone than to control them. When you control someone you get what you want. When you free someone, they get what they want. -243 We are all married. We are married to each other --now and forever. (243) Freedom to Be Who You Are is your greatest desire, and My greatest gift. (243) The body does not house the soul. It is the other way around. (246) In highly evolved cultures, all sentient beings are clear that there is no seperation between themselves and what you call “God”. All creatures have an intuitive knowing that God is on their “side”, because I am. There is no free will, if to exercise it in certain ways produces punishment. (253) Every act is an act of self-definition. (253) The only thing that changes as you evolve is your idea of what serves you. No matter is inconsequential. (254) All your life you have been told that God created you. I come now to tell you this: You are creating God. (256) The human race has no chance to lift itself from its own lowest thoughts until you lift yourself to your own highest ideas. (257) Who you are, I am. You are defining God. (257) Unity is the truth. Separation is the illusion. (259) You deny that I am within you--that I “am” you-- and in this you deny Me My rightful and obvious place. (262) Advanced technology without advanced thought creates not advancement, but demise. (269) I love you. I have no judgments about you. I look at you and see only beauty and wonder. (273) I feel the energy of your race as you would the energy of a man or woman of "primitive sensuality". And like you, I am aroused. Now “that” is what is true about you and Me. You do not disgust me, you do not disturb me, you do not even disappoint me. You “arouse” me. (273) The beauty and fragrance of your flowering shall fill the land and you shall yet have your place in the Garden of the Gods. (273) You are never degraded unless you think you are. (274) You are never judged or "made wrong" by God. (274) Each person comes to wisdom in a way that is most understandable, a path that is most familiar. (280) The evolved being knows she can create everything all over again. (284) The truth is often uncomfortable. (289) True change is always made at the level of "being" not "doing". (292) You have to raise consciousness before you can change consciousness. (293) The degree to which a culture is evolved is demonstrated by the degree to which it labels a being or an action "shameful" or "guilty". (301)
Achieving is defined as "doing what brings value", not "doing what brings 'fame' and 'fortune' whether it is of value or not". (310) Embody the consciousness of "We Are All One" and "There's Enough". (314) You are subjugated to no one. (323) Heaven is within you. (327) Caring creates communication. (334) Everything depends on who you think you are, and what you are trying to do. (339) Create your own truth. (341) I am not going anywhere. I am with you always. All ways. (342) I love you just the way you are. (346) If you saw you as God sees you, you would smile a lot. (349) SEE THE PERFECTION. (350) The world can present you with circumstances, but only you decide what these circumstances mean. (351) All of you have experienced everything. (354) There is nothing I have to have, there is nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I'm being right now. (362) You are My Beloved. (363) You are always a part OF God because you are never apart FROM God. (365)
