Do you have discipline?

May 21, 2022

My dear friends...

We have been exploring here what I have called The Holy Experience, and how to create it in one’s life. There are a number of tools that I have found with which one may do this, and over the past many weeks we have been exploring them one by one. Last week we looked at Tool #10, Service. Today, we invite you to pick up the tool of Discipline.

I see this tool being used in two ways. First, as a means of forming and shaping my own day-to-day experience of life, so...

A Letter to Neale: I don’t want Afterlife surprises...

May 21, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale.. I was a liberal wing Swedenborgian back in the 90's. In 1758, in one of his revelations he said came from God (sound like anyone ), he wrote a very definite book account of visiting Heaven and Hell. He said God is never angry, is love itself, and never sentences anyone to hell --- but he said there is one. "Anyone can enter heaven. However as soon as an evil person inhales the air there, they have excruciating torment, so they quickly shun it and escape to...

A Letter to Neale: Is God just fooling himself?

May 14, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale.. One question I've had about reading the CWG 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 that everything is God, isn’t it God's will and not ours? How does God love "us" as his/her children when it knows it is exactly that. Isn't everything you...

Who are you serving today?

May 14, 2022

My dear friends...

We have been exploring here what I have called The Holy Experience, and how to create it in one’s life. There are a number of tools that I have found with which one may do this, and over the past many weeks we have been exploring them one by one. This week, a look at Tool #10: Service & Discipline.

When I was a younger man I had a great sadness. A woman with whom I was engaged to be married decided that she didn’t want to marry me after all. She broke off...

Make a Ritual of Ritual

May 07, 2022

My dear friends...

Last week we discussed in this space Movement as a tool in the creation of The Holy Experience. We also promised that this week we would explore yet one more tool: Ritual. Let’s look at that now.

The dictionary defines ritual as a series of actions or type of behavior regularly and invariably followed by someone, often according to a prescribed order.

Rituals are patterns of ordered living. By their nature they move us into non-awareness by their autonomic forms....

A Letter to Neale: Forgiveness ‘forgone’

May 07, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale..Dear Neale...Some history first and then my question. I was raised catholic in a very loving, but dysfunctional family. My father was an alcoholic, having served in many wars, that is how he dealt with it. There was a lot of screaming and turmoil in my life from it, even though; I was very close to both my parents, who have both passed now. My siblings and I are quite spread out in age, I being the youngest and experienced the most dysfunction. Three of us...

Moveliness is Holiness

Apr 30, 2022

My dear friends...

Last week we discussed in this space Movement as a tool in creating The Holy Experience in one’s life. I said that however you employ it, the tool of Movement has been known to produce significant benefit. Not only, as may seem obvious, physical toning and shaping, but metaphysical sharpening and opening as well. We’ll continue this week by saying that the above is true because Movement is about agitating energy. It is stirring the pot of the primal soup. It is...

A Letter to Neale

Apr 30, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale, I've seen a couple of book about how to hear God's voice and I'm wondering if you can recommend any books about it?

Love and joy Jasmine


Neale Responds:

Dear Jasmine...I do not have any particular book to recommend, but I can tell you how I hear God's voice. Simply ask with deep purity, deep sincerity, deep honesty, deep yearning, and deep willingness to hear from God. THEN...let God "speak" to you in any and every way.

Do not "insist" that God speak to...

A Letter to Neale: Does the Soul retain memories?

Apr 23, 2022

Reader question:

Dear Neale, I am 1/2 way through your book "Home With God" - the 3rd I have read of your many writings. Maybe I haven't gotten far enough in yet, but I keep waiting for you & God to talk about whether or not we somehow hold onto the increased level of awareness we have achieved (and are achieving right now as a result of receiving His message through you) when we transition into future physical lives. In other words, will the strides that my soul has made in this...

Physical Movement is a Tool

Apr 23, 2022

My dear friends...


We’ve been discussing the various tools that I have discovered have given us as a pathway to what I call The Holy Experience. I would like to continue this exploration today with a look at the tool that I call “Movement.”

From the beginning of human experience our species has intuitively understood that Movement was somehow an important tool in both living a good life and connecting with an Essence larger than themselves.

It is no coincidence that...
