A Letter to Neale

Dear Neale, I am writing this email with a very heavy heart, and am sincerely hoping you will be able to give me some comfort. On Wednesday I had to put my little dog down - he was a beautiful toy poodle, and was part of the family. He was nearly 14, a good age for a poodle, but that does not make the grieving any easier. Has God a special place for animals, Neale? He created them and loves them. God is love - love is God. Surely they have a soul -- they have feelings, emotions and great...

Visualization as a Tool

My dear friends...

We continue our extraordinary exposition on how to move into what I have been calling The Holy Experience. Last week we talked about the tool of Sound. This week, let's look at another instrument --- one of the most powerful Instruments I have ever used. It is the tool of visualization.

I'm tempted to stay away from saying something very daring here, but it is true, so I'm going to say it: I have hardly ever used the tool of visualization and have it not work.

I'm not going...

Learning to Listen to Life

We continue this week in our extraordinary exposition on how to move into what I have been calling The Holy Experience. Last week we said here that meditators are often told that a good way to begin their practice is to listen to the sound of their own breath. Move deeply into the sound, meld with it, become one with it.

Training ourselves to listen to the sounds of life and to seek Resonance with life is a wonderful beginning on the path to Non-Awareness of the Self. We experience our Selves...

A Letter to Neale

Dear Neale, I have a question regarding one of the CWG books. It's about Jesus. You quote, I think, a few times the Bible verse, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life', but I was wondering about the second part of that verse that says 'no one comes to the Father except through me'.

I became a Christian around 6 years ago at the age of 34 and kind of believed everything the church told me. I eventually left the church as so much of what was said didn't add up (especially the bits about God...

The magic of sound

In discussing The Holy Experience in this Bulletin we have explored many approaches, including, most recently, the aspect of life that I have called “non-awareness.” Last week in the Bulletin I offered a vived “real life” explanation of this phenomenon. If you missed that edition of this publication, I hope you will find a way a to go back and take a look at it.

Today I would like to embark on an expansion of The Five Tools of Non-Awareness. These Instruments are among...

A Letter to Neale

Dear Neale, One question I've had about reading the books is this. If everything is all one (which I believe it is) then how is God really experiencing anything? For instance, how do we form relationships, or intimate relationships if we're all the same thing? Is free will just an illusion then, considering everything is God, it's God's will, not ours? How does God love "us" as his/her children when it knows it is exactly that. Isn't everything you have written, just God talking to Itself,...

Don’t look down

As you know, we have been discussing here the moments in life that I have called The Holy Experience. The connection with Life’s True Joy, Real Purpose, and Ultimate Reality is what we have been calling that. As I said here last week, this is an experience not covered by the prior data of most human cultures, traditions, and religions. True, many of these cultures, traditions, and religions offer a facsimile of it, but few, if any, have brought us reliable data about Life’s True...

A Letter to Neale

Dear Neale, In your article, "Becoming Aware of Non-Awareness," you write  that the only way a person can step out of the experience of his/her culture is to be non-aware of it or non-aware of its import.  Actually, in postmodern theory - in order to be unbiased by your perspective - it is important to be very aware of it.  We all stand somewhere and we are often unconscious of it.  We can never be totally aware of every aspect of it.  The key to be able to enter...

Becoming Aware of Non-Awareness

My dear friends...

As you know, we have been discussing here the moments in life that I have called The Holy Experience. And in last week’s installment I said that there are ten instruments by which any person may have such an experience. I said that the Ten Instruments are divided into two types: Physical Tools (described fully in the preceding chapter) and Spiritual Tools (which I will describe here). I have alternately called these two types The Five Tools of Awareness, and The Five...

A Letter to Neale

Dear Neale, What happens to us after death ? And Question 2: Is the Bible true? What parts of it can we believe ? Thank you.


Neale Responds

My dear friend...I have written an entire book that proposes an answer to your question. The question itself is enormous, and the answer cannot be given in one simple 3 or 4-paragraph response. That is why I was given an entire book in response to the desire of all human beings to know what happens after we experience our Continuation Day. The book is...
