Website language: Reversing this process is the fastest way to experience mastery in living. Spiritual mastery is about living from the third level. First, the idea that God needs something. Second, the idea that God can fail to get what He needs. Third, the idea that God has separated you from Him because you have not given Him what He needs. Fourth, the idea that God still needs what He needs so badly that God now requires you, from your separated position, to give it to Him.
Fifth, the idea that God will destroy you if you do not meet His requirements. First, the idea that human beings are separate from each other. Second, the idea that there is not enough of what human beings need to be happy. Third, the idea that in order to get the stuff of which there is not enough, human beings must compete with each other. Fourth, the idea that some human beings are better than other human beings. Fifth, the idea that it is appropriate for human beings to resolve severe differences created by all the other fallacies by killing each other.
Your experience of yourself and your world will shift dramatically if you adopt, collectively, the Five Steps to Peace: Permit yourself to acknowledge that some of your old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working. You cannot ignore them once truly heard. Thus will our communication begin in earnest. For in the past you have only talked to Me, praying to Me, interceding with Me, beseeching Me.
Yet now can I talk back to you, even as I am doing here. How can I know this communication is from God? How do I know this is not my own imagination? What would be the difference? Do you not see that I could just as easily work through your imagination as anything else?
I will bring you the exact right thoughts, words or feelings, at any given moment, suited precisely to the purpose at hand, using one device, or several. You will know these words are from Me because you, of your own accord, have never spoken so clearly. Had you already spoken so clearly on these questions, you would not be asking them. To whom does God communicate? Are there special people?
Are there special times? All people are special, and all moments are golden. There is no person and there is no time one more special than another. Many people choose to believe that God communicates in special ways and only with special people. This is the biggest reason for most people turning from My messages on a personal level.
If you acknowledge that you are receiving My messages directly, then you are responsible for interpreting them.
It is far safer and much easier to accept the interpretation of others even others who have lived 2, years ago than seek to interpret the message you may very well be receiving in this moment now. Yet I invite you to a new form of communication with God. A two-way communication. In truth, it is you who have invited Me.
For I have come to you, in this form, right now, in answer to your call. Why do some people, take Christ, for example, seem to hear more of Your communication than others? Because some people are willing to actually listen.
They are willing to hear, and they are willing to remain open to the communication even when it seems scary, or crazy, or downright wrong. Especially when it seems wrong. If you think you are right about everything, who needs to talk with God? Go ahead and act on all that you know.
And look at what shape the world is in. When what a scientist does is not working, a scientist sets aside all of the assumptions and starts over. All great discoveries have been made from a willingness, and ability, to not be right. I cannot tell you My Truth until you stop telling Me yours. Listen to your feelings. Listen to your Highest Thoughts. Listen to your experience. Words are the least reliable purveyor of Truth. There is so much I want to say to You, so much I want to ask. For instance, why is it that You do not reveal Yourself?
If there really is a God, and You are It, why do You not reveal Yourself in a way we can all understand? I have done so, over and over. I am doing so again right now. I mean by a method of revelation that is incontrovertible; that cannot be denied. No, I mean in an incontrovertible way.
In a way no man could deny. What way would that be? In what form or shape would you have Me appear? That would be impossible, for I have no form or shape you understand.
I could adopt a form or shape that you could understand, but then everyone would assume that what they have seen is the one and only form and shape of God, rather than a form or shape of God—one of many. People believe I am what they see Me as, rather than what they do not see. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the am-notness that I come, and to it I always return. Yet when I come in one particular form or another—a form in which I think people can understand Me—people assign Me that form forevermore.
And should I come in any other form, to any other people, the first say I did not appear to the second, because I did not look to the second as I did to the first, nor say the same things—so how could it have been Me? You see, then, it matters not in what form or in what manner I reveal Myself—whatever manner I choose and whatever form I take, none will be incontrovertible.
But if You did something that would evidence the truth of who You are beyond doubt or question…. Or any cause other than Me. And such is as it should be. For God does not reveal Godself to Godself from or through outward observation, but through inward experience. And when inward experience has revealed Godself, outward observation is not necessary.
And if outward observation is necessary, inward experience is not possible. If, then, revelation is requested, it cannot be had, for the act of asking is a statement that it is not there; that nothing of God is now being revealed. Such a statement produces the experience. For your thought about something is creative, and your word is productive, and your thought and your word together are magnificently effective in giving birth to your reality.
Therefore shall you experience that God is not now revealed, for if God were, you would not ask God to be. Does that mean I cannot ask for anything I want? Are You saying that praying for something actually pushes it away from us? This is a question which has been asked through the Ages—and has been answered whenever it has been asked.
Yet you have not heard the answer, or will not believe it. You will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack, and your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience— wanting—in your reality. The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude. When you thank God in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect, acknowledge that it is there… in effect.
Thankfulness is thus the most powerful statement to God; an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered. But what if I am grateful to God in advance for something, and it never shows up?
That could lead to disillusionment and bitterness. Gratitude cannot be used as a tool with which to manipulate God; a device with which to fool the universe. You cannot lie to yourself. Your mind knows the truth of your thoughts. God knows what you know, and what you know is what appears as your reality. But how then can I be truly grateful for something I know is not there? If you have but the faith of a mustard seed, you shall move mountains.
You come to know it is there because I said it is there; because I said that, even before you ask, I shall have answered; because I said, and have said to you in every conceivable way, through every teacher you can name, that whatsoever you shall choose, choosing it in My Name, so shall it be.
Yet so many people say that their prayers have gone unanswered. No prayer—and a prayer is nothing more than a fervent statement of what is so—goes unanswered. Every prayer—every thought, every statement, every feeling—is creative.
To the degree that it is fervently held as truth, to that degree will it be made manifest in your experience. When it is said that a prayer has not been answered, what has in actuality happened is that the most fervently held thought, word, or feeling has become operative. Yet what you must know—and here is the secret—is that always it is the thought behind the thought—what might be called the Sponsoring Thought—that is the controlling thought.
If, therefore, you beg and supplicate, there seems a much smaller chance that you will experience what you think you are choosing, because the Sponsoring Thought behind every supplication is that you do not have now what you wish. That Sponsoring Thought becomes your reality. The only Sponsoring Thought which could override this thought is the thought held in faith that God will grant whatever is asked, without fail. Some people have such faith, but very few.
Then the prayer is a prayer of thanksgiving. It is not a request at all but a statement of gratitude for what is so. By what rule of thumb would God decide? If you believe that God is the creator and decider of all things in your life, you are mistaken. God is the observer, not the creator. And God stands ready to assist you in living your life, but not in the way you might expect. God created you, in the image and likeness of God. You have created the rest, through the power God has given you.
God created the process of life and life itself as you know it. Yet God gave you free choice, to do with life as you will. You are living your life the way you are living your life, and I have no preference in the matter. This is the grand illusion in which you have engaged: I do not care what you do, and that is hard for you to hear. Yet do you care what your children do when you send them out to play? Is it a matter of consequence to you whether they play tag, or hide and seek, or pretend?
No, it is not, because you know they are perfectly safe. You have placed them in an environment which you consider friendly and very okay. Of course, you will always hope that they do not hurt themselves. And if they do, you will be right there to help them, heal them, allow them to feel safe again, to be happy again, to go and play again another day.
But whether they choose hide and seek or pretend will not matter to you the next day, either. You will tell them, of course, which games are dangerous to play. But you cannot stop your children from doing dangerous things.
Not always. Not forever. Not in every moment from now until death. It is the wise parent who knows this. Yet the parent never stops caring about the outcome. It is this dichotomy—not caring deeply about the process, but caring deeply about the result—that comes close to describing the dichotomy of God.
Yet God, in a sense, does not even care about the outcome. Not the ultimate outcome. This is because the ultimate outcome is assured. And this is the second great illusion of man: It is this doubt about ultimate outcome that has created your greatest enemy, which is fear.
For if you doubt outcome, then you must doubt Creator —you must doubt God. And if you doubt God, you must live in fear and guilt all your life. How can you ever truly find peace?
Yet God has full power to match intentions with results. Finally, you have actually imagined that God could lose this war. You live your illusion, and thus feel your fear, all out of your decision to doubt God. But what if you made a new decision? What then would be the result?
I tell you this: As Jesus did. As did every saint you have ever idolized.
Yet, as with most of those saints, people would not understand you. And when you tried to explain your sense of peace, your joy in life, your inner ecstasy, they would listen to your words, but not hear them.
They would try to repeat your words, but would add to them. They would wonder how you could have what they cannot find. And then they would grow jealous. Soon jealousy would turn to rage, and in their anger they would try to convince you that it is you who do not understand God. And if they were unsuccessful at tearing you from your joy, they would seek to harm you, so enormous would be their rage.
And when you told them it does not matter, that even death cannot interrupt your joy, nor change your truth, they would surely kill you. Then, when they saw the peace with which you accepted death, they would call you saint, and love you again. For it is the nature of people to love, then destroy, then love again that which they value most. All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by one of two emotions—fear or love.
In truth there are only two emotions—only two words in the language of the soul. These are the opposite ends of the great polarity which I created when I produced the universe, and your world, as you know it today.
Without these two points, without these two ideas about things, no other idea could exist. Every human thought, and every human action, is based in either love or fear. There is no other human motivation, and all other ideas are but derivatives of these two. They are simply different versions—different twists on the same theme.
Think on this deeply and you will see that it is true. This is what I have called the Sponsoring Thought. It is either a thought of love or fear. This is the thought behind the thought behind the thought.
It is the first thought. It is prime force. It is the raw energy that drives the engine of human experience. And here is how human behavior produces repeat experience after repeat experience; it is why humans love, then destroy, then love again: Love sponsors fear sponsors love sponsors fear…. If God retreats and withdraws when you do not perform properly, will not mere mortals also?
And if you hear it back, then you begin immediately to worry that the love you have just found, you will lose. And so all action becomes a reaction—defense against loss—even as you seek to defend yourself against the loss of God.
Yet if you knew Who You Are—that you are the most magnificent, the most remarkable, the most splendid being God has ever created—you would never fear.
Conversations with God Summary
For who could reject such wondrous magnificence? Not even God could find fault in such a being. But you do not know Who You Are, and you think you are a great deal less. And where did you get the idea of how much less than magnificent you are?
From the only people whose word you would take on everything. From your mother and your father. These are the people who love you the most. Why would they lie to you?
Yet have they not told you that you are too much of this, and not enough of that? Have they not reminded you that you are to be seen and not heard? Have they not scolded you in some of the moments of your greatest exuberance?
And, did they not encourage you to set aside some of your wildest imagining? It was your parents who taught you that love is conditional—you have felt their conditions many times—and that is the experience you take into your own love relationships. From this experience you draw your conclusions about Me.
Within this framework you speak your truth. For have you not experienced the banishment of your own parents? Do you not know the pain of their damnation? How, then, could you imagine it to be any different with Me? You have forgotten what it was like to be loved without condition. You do not remember the experience of the love of God. But this is a simplistic view of God, based on your mythology. It has nothing to do with Who I Am. Having thus created an entire thought system about God based on human experience rather than spiritual truths, you then create an entire reality around love.
It is a fear-based reality, rooted in the idea of a fearful, vengeful God. Its Sponsoring Thought is wrong, but to deny that thought would be to disrupt your whole theology.
And though the new theology which would replace it would truly be your salvation, you cannot accept it, because the idea of a God Who is not to be feared, Who will not judge, and Who has no cause to punish is simply too magnificent to he embraced within even your grandest notion of Who and What God is.
This fear-based love reality dominates your experience of love; indeed, actually creates it. For not only do you see yourself receiving love which is conditional, you also watch yourself giving it in the same way.
25 Core Messages
And even while you withhold and retreat and set your conditions, a part of you knows this is not what love really is. So, too, do you damn yourself never to know Me as I really am. Until you do. For you shall not be able to deny Me forever, and the moment will come for our Reconciliation. Every action taken by human beings is based in love or fear, not simply those dealing with relationships.
Decisions affecting business, industry, politics, religion, the education of your young, the social agenda of your nations, the economic goals of your society, choices involving war, peace, attack, defense, aggression, submission; determinations to covet or give away, to save or to share, to unite or to divide—every single free choice you ever undertake arises out of one of the only two possible thoughts there are: Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms.
Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. Fear wrap our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked.
Conversations with God Summary
Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go.
Fear rankles, love soothes.
Fear attacks, love amends. Every human thought, word, or deed is based in one emotion or the other.
You have no choice about this, because there is nothing else from which to choose. But you have free choice about which of these to select. You make it sound so easy, and yet in the moment of decision fear wins more often than not. Why is that? You have been taught to live in fear. You have been told about the survival of the fittest and the victory of the strongest and the success of the cleverest. Precious little is said about the glory of the most loving.
And so you strive to be the fittest, the strongest, the cleverest—in one way or another— and if you see yourself as something less than this in any situation, you fear loss, for you have been told that to be less is to lose. And so of course you choose the action fear sponsors, for that is what you have been taught.
Yet I teach you this: Then will you experience the full glory of Who You Really Are, and who you can be. To do this you must turn aside the teachings of your well-meaning, but misinformed, worldly tutors, and hear the teachings of those whose wisdom comes from another source. There are many such teachers among you, as always there have been, for I will not leave you without those who would show you, teach you, guide you, and remind you of these truths.
Yet the greatest reminder is not anyone outside you, but the voice within you. This is the first tool that I use, because it is the most accessible. The voice within is the loudest voice with which I speak, because it is the closest to you. It is the voice which tells you whether everything else is true or false, right or wrong, good or bad as you have defined it.
It is the radar that sets the course, steers the ship, guides the journey if you but let it. It is the voice which tells you right now whether the very words you are reading are words of love or words of fear. By this measure can you determine whether they are words to heed or words to ignore. You said that when I always choose the action that love sponsors, then I will experience the full glory of who I am and who I can be.
Will you expand on this please? There is only one purpose for all of life, and that is for you and all that lives to experience fullest glory. Everything else you say, think, or do is attendant to that function.
There is nothing else for your soul to do, and nothing else your soul wants to do. The wonder of this purpose is that it is never-ending. Should there come a moment in which you experience yourself in your fullest glory, you will in that instant imagine an ever greater glory to fulfill. The more you are, the more you can become, and the more you can become, the more you can yet be. The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation.
You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Is this correct? It is another part of your mythology, based on human experience.
I have told you, over and over again.
You do not believe Me. Yet that is well as it should be. For truly, if you do not create yourself as Who You Are, that you cannot be. School is a place you go if there is something you do not know that you want to know. It is not a place you go if you already know a thing and simply want to experience your knowingness.
Life as you call it is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. You need learn nothing to do this. You need merely remember what you already know, and act on it. The soul—your soul—knows all there is to know all the time. Yet knowing is not enough. The soul seeks to experience. You can know yourself to be generous, but unless you do something which displays generosity, you have nothing but a concept.
You can know yourself to be kind, but unless you do someone a kindness, you have nothing but an idea about yourself. Until concept becomes experience, all there is is speculation.
I have been speculating about Myself for a long time. Longer than you and I could collectively remember. Longer than the age of this universe times the age of the universe. You see, then, how young is—how new is—My experience of Myself!
In the beginning, that which Is is all there was, and there was nothing else. And so, All That Is… was not. For in the absence of something else, All That Is, is not. Now All That Is knew it was all there was—but this was not enough, for it could only know its utter magnificence conceptually, not experientially. Yet the experience of itself is that for which it longed, for it wanted to know what it felt like to be so magnificent.
All That Is could not know what it felt like to be magnificent unless that which is not showed up. In the absence of that which is not, that which IS, is not. Alright The one thing that All That Is knew is that there was nothing else. And so It could, and would, never know Itself from a reference point outside of Itself.
Such a point did not exist. Only one reference point existed, and that was the single place within. Still, the All of Everything chose to know Itself experientially. This energy—this pure, unseen, unheard, unobserved, and therefore unknown-by-anyone-else energy—chose to experience Itself as the utter magnificence It was.
In order to do this, It realized It would have to use a reference point within. It reasoned, quite correctly, that any portion of Itself would necessarily have to be less than the whole, and that if It thus simply divided Itself into portions, each portion, being less than the whole, could look back on the rest of Itself and see magnificence.
And so All That Is divided Itself—becoming, in one glorious moment, that which is this, and that which is that. For the first time, this and that existed, quite apart from each other. And still, both existed simultaneously. As did all that was neither. Thus, three elements suddenly existed: That which is there.
And that which is neither here nor there—but which must exist for here and there to exist. It is the nothing which holds the everything. It is the non-space which holds the space. It is the all which holds the parts. I think I am, actually. Now this nothing which holds the everything is what some people call God. In the moment of this great explosion from within, God created relativity—the greatest gift God ever gave to Itself.
Thus, relationship is the greatest gift God ever gave to you, a point to be discussed in detail later. From the No-Thing thus sprang the Everything—a spiritual event entirely consistent, incidentally, with what your scientists call The Big Bang theory. As the elements of all raced forth, time was created, for a thing was first here, then it was there—and the period it took to get from here to there was measurable. God knew that for love to exist—and to know itself as pure love—its exact opposite had to exist as well.
So God voluntarily created the great polarity—the absolute opposite of love—everything that love is not—what is now called fear.
In the moment fear existed, love could exist as a thing that could be experienced. It is this creation of duality between love and its opposite which humans refer to in their various mythologies as the birth of evil, the fall of Adam, the rebellion of Satan, and so forth.
Just as you have chosen to personify pure love as the character you call God, so have you chosen to personify abject fear as the character you call the devil. Some on Earth have established rather elaborate mythologies around this event, complete with scenarios of battles and war, angelic soldiers and devilish warriors, the forces of good and evil, of light and dark. In rendering the universe as a divided version of Itself, God produced, from pure energy, all that now exists—both seen and unseen.
In other words, not only was the physical universe thus created, but the metaphysical universe as well. These energy units you would call spirits. In this instance, your mythical tales and stories are not so far from ultimate reality—for the endless spirits comprising the totality of Me are, in a cosmic sense, My offspring.
My divine purpose in dividing Me was to create sufficient parts of Me so that I could know Myself experientially. There is only one way for the Creator to know Itself experientially as the Creator, and that is to create.
And so I gave to each of the countless parts of Me to all of My spirit children the same power to create which I have as the whole. It does mean that our essence is the same. We are composed of the same stuff.
With all the same properties and abilities—including the ability to create physical reality out of thin air. My purpose in creating you, My spiritual offspring, was for Me to know Myself as God.
I have no way to do that save through you. Thus it can be said and has been, many times that My purpose for you is that you should know yourself as Me. This seems so amazingly simple, yet it becomes very complex— because there is only one way for you to know yourself as Me, and that is for you first to know yourself as not Me.
Now try to follow this—fight to keep up—because this gets very subtle here. Are you ready? There is one way I could have caused all of My spiritual children to know themselves as parts of Me—and that was simply to tell them. This I did. But you see, it was not enough for Spirit to simply know Itself as God, or part of God, or children of God, or inheritors of the kingdom or whatever mythology you want to use. Spirit longed to know Itself experientially just as I did!
Conceptual awareness was not enough for you. So I devised a plan. It is the most extraordinary idea in all the universe—and the most spectacular collaboration. I say collaboration because all of you are in it with Me. Under the plan, you as pure spirit would enter the physical universe just created. This is because physicality is the only way to know experientially what you know conceptually. It is, in fact, the reason I created the physical cosmos to begin with—and the system of relativity which governs it, and all creation.
Once in the physical universe, you, My spirit children, could experience what you know of yourself—but first, you had to come to know the opposite. To explain this simplistically, you cannot know yourself as tall unless and until you become aware of short. You cannot experience the part of yourself that you call fat unless you also come to know thin. This is the purpose of the theory of relativity, and all physical life. It is by that which you are not that you yourself are defined.
Now in the case of the ultimate knowing—in the case of knowing yourself as the Creator—you cannot experience your Self as creator unless and until you create.
And you cannot create yourself until you uncreate yourself.Who sets the guidelines? I mean, God is not going to talk back, right? Before I knew it, I had begun a conversation…and I was not writing so much as taking dictation. Judgment is often based upon previous experience. Still, the All of Everything chose to know Itself experientially. Why do we do that? That Sponsoring Thought becomes your reality. But within this, there are ways that it is stated and implied people will gradually come to see their thoughts, words, actions are either working or they are not working.
