What do you think?FROM CWG: HERE ARE 1,000 WORDSTHAT WOULD CHANGE THE WORLD
I’m sure you have observed, as have I, that current events worldwide are generating a great deal of stress among many people today, causing them to search for tools that might be used to come to grips with all that is happening on our planet.
Leaders on the world stage are loudly and belligerently threatening to destroy each other’s country, global warming is whipping up storms to a level we have rarely seen before, earthquakes are producing tragedies right and left, and social and political issues are dividing people more profoundly and disturbingly than ever. Add to this the shifting sands in many peoples’ personal lives, and it is small wonder that millions are yearning for emotional respite.
Whatever one thinks of the theology found in the Conversations with God series of books (the word “theology” is defined, by the way, as “the study of the nature of God and religious belief” — not “the TRUTH about God”), many of the spiritual tools offered in this extended dialogue have been found by not a few people (judging from the communications I receive on my Facebook page, at CWG Connect, in my email, and in person daily) to be beneficial in helping them find some measure of inner peace in this time of seemingly endless turmoil.
I have been asked many times if I could simply and easily summarize what I considered to be the most important messages of the Conversations with God oeuvre, for peoples’ easy reference. In the book What God Said I did just that, opening it with what I called “1,000 Words That Would Change the World.” The book then devotes one chapter to a deep exploration of each of its statements.
I am happy to reproduce that opening presentation below, for whatever value you might find in it:
Here, in 1,000 words, is all that the human race needs to know in order to live the life for which it has yearned and which, despite trying for thousands of years, it has yet to produce. Carry these messages to your world:
We are all One. All things are One Thing. There is only One Thing, and all things are part of the One Thing There Is. This means that you are Divine. You are not your body, you are not your mind, and you are not your soul. You are the unique combination of all three, which comprises the Totality Of You. You are an individuation of Divinity; an expression of God on Earth.
There’s enough. It is not necessary to compete for, much less fight over, your resources. All you have to do is share.
There’s nothing you have to do. There is much you will do, but nothing you are required to do. God wants nothing, needs nothing, demands nothing, commands nothing.
God talks to everyone, all the time. The question is not: To whom does God talk? The question is: Who listens?
