About This Episode
EPISODE N. 24 | Neale Donald Walsch is author of 39 books on contemporary spirituality and its practical applications in everyday life. Seven of the nine books comprising his extremely popular “Conversations with God” series have made the New York Times bestseller list, with the first one, Conversations with God, occupying a space on that list for an astonishing 134 weeks. His latest book is The God Solution published by Phoenix Books. In Fred and Ervin’s book, Dawn of an Era of Well-Being, Mr. Walsch was kind enough to contribute a chapter which begins with the following inquiry:
For years, we have received spiritual guidance to be “in this world, but not of it.” It’s been widely advised (in those exact words, actually) from the time of Jesus and suggested in more general terms as a workable modus operandi by the elders and philosophers of our species from very early on in our jointly undertaken Earthly adventures.
In more recent times this notion has been reinforced by the repeated reminders of our contemporary spiritual teachers that we are, in fact, eternal metaphysical entities, and that our purpose on Earth has to do with the soul’s agenda, not the desires of the body or the excursions of the mind.
So now, a question.
If we really are spiritual beings living eternally and serving the Agenda of the Soul, why should we pay particular attention to our physical life—much less place the enormous amount of focus on it that most people do?
What’s the purpose of continuing our millennia-long struggle to create possibilities for heading toward a better world if we are not even of this world?
Are we wasting our time with our forever-ongoing explorations of what we can do in this physical life to create a better world? If not, what would it take to produce the outcome?
Today on the podcast Dawn of an Era of Well-Being we are very pleased to be joined once again by Mr. Walsch for the final episode of Season 2. In this season finale Neale will discuss his expansive yet deeply personal outlook on spirituality. This conversation with Ervin and Alison will zero in on what really matters in our spiritual journey across all faiths. After our talk with Neale, our co-host Fred Tsao will follow up with some additional, remarkably inquisitive comments on how these points can be applied to the realms of economics, leadership, and the Chinese perspective.
Thank you for listening to Season 2 of Dawn of an Era of Well-Being: The Podcast. Season 3 is already set for production and new episodes will be available soon!
NEALE DONALD WALSCH is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The “Conversations with God” series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
“Conversations with God” has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale has created several outreach projects, including the CWG Foundation, CWG for Parents, Humanity’s Team, the CWG Helping Outreach, and The Global Conversation—all accessible at the “hub” website CWGPortal.com, and all dedicated to help the world move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.
Neale’s work has taken him from the steps of Machu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone—from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul—Neale has experienced a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.
