Embarrassment is a pointless experience

You have permission to abandon it. Replace it with self love and love of all others--and love of the imperfections you imagine you see in both. In truth, both are perfect in their 'imperfection,' for 'imperfection' merely means 'incompletion.' So do not be embarrassed if you haven't completed graduate school yet. Rather, look forward to the adventure of doing it. Neale Donald Walsch

You are loved on this day for all the wonder that you bring to your world with the gift of being you

Hard to believe, isn't it, that you are that special in the eyes of God? Yet you are--and not because of what you have done, but because of who you are. You are God's own creation, an expression of Divinity in human form. The fastest way to experience this is to be the vehicle through which others see it in themselves. Each person is walking his or her path and doing his or her best. God knows this and that is why God loves you all. Neale Donald Walsch

Peace cannot come to this world until you are convinced violence will never produce it

Hurt does not heal hurt. Violence will not bring an end to violence. Help the world to understand this by reacting differently, responding newly, when anger and a need to hurt you is sent your way. You will have such an opportunity in your life. And probably, more than once. Do not miss the chance to humbly send a message of love. Neale Donald Walsch

When regret is sincere, an apology to another need not be accepted

Seek to speak purely from your heart. When you have made a mistake, erred as all humans do, admit it, feel your regret as your inner truth, share it with those who matter in the incident, and ask forgiveness. But do not require it in order to move on in peace. Another person's forgiveness is not what is needed. Only your own. If the distress you caused was unintentional, say you are sorry, then hold in a place of love for those who will not forgive you. It may be a larger hurt they are healing. Neale Donald Walsch

If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him

Seneca said that, and it is true. You have to know where you are going in order to get there. This may seem simplistic, but many people have no idea where they are going in life--much less where they are headed on the Journey of the Soul. Yet these are things that have to be decided, not discovered. Too many people are waiting to discover what they should decide; to chance upon what they should be choosing. Are you one of them? Neale Donald Walsch

You cannot hope to solve any problem using the same energy created the problem

Whether it's the endless wars in the world or the unending quarrels and fighting in your own home, the problem is the same : conflicting energy. If you want to change the outcome, change the energy. The extraordinary aspect of this solution is that you do not have to wait for the other party in order to do it. Neale Donald Walsch

Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it

Horace said that, and he was right. During any time of adversity, your genius will be revealed--as will that of all humankind. We will find that there is another way to live other than 'dog eat dog,' and another worthy goal other than 'bigger, better, more.' See this time, then, as a challenge to your ingenuity and an invitation from life to rediscover what is truly important: love, family, friends, and... the journey of the soul. Neale Donald Walsch

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights

Kahlil Gibran said that, and he was right. Listen, therefore, to your heart. Cultivate the ability to do this. Practice it. Produce it. Perfect it. It is not that difficult. Just be quiet with yourself. And for heaven's sake, stop listening to your mind. You will not find the truth there. You may find the answer, but it will not be the truth unless it coincides with the answer in your heart. You think there is more to know about life than this, but there is not. Your heart holds the key. Your heart holds the wisdom. Your heart holds the future. Your mind knows nothing but the past. It imagines the future will be just like yesterday, so it makes it decisions based on that. Only your heart can see beyond memory's horizon. Neale Donald Walsch

There is something 'wrong' with everything

No matter what you are looking at, you can find something wrong with it, something imperfect, something that is not okay with you. Don't worry, if you look hard enough you'll find it. There is also something 'right' with everything. No matter what you are looking at, you can find something right with it, something perfect. There remains, then, only one question: What are you going to look at? What are you choosing to notice? What is your perspective? (I'll bet you already know what God's perspective is...) Neale Donald Walsch

Remorse is regret one waited so long to do it

H.L. Mencken said that, and he was right. Do not, do not, "put off until tomorrow what you can do today." And do not think that there is anything that you really want to do that you cannot do today. There is no reason to wait. None. Save the reasons that your Mind gives you, none of which are valid, all of which you are just making up. Quit it. Stop it. Stop the stopping. Start the starting. Really. I mean, really. Because you know what? Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years so fast that you will not know what happened. But you will know what did not happen. And you will feel true remorse. So let's avoid that, shall we? Get going. Go for it. Neale Donald Walsch

You should never be content with so little when you can reach out for something big

Charles L. Allen asked a question about that, wondering why so many people settle for so little. You do not have to place yourself among them. The world is an abundant place. Abundant with opportunity, abundant with good fortune, abundant with ideas, and abundant with love. Reach into that abundance and take what is rightfully yours. It is your inheritance, gifted to you by God. Let yourself have it. Do not fail to reach for it for fear that it will not come to you. How can it come to you if you do not reach for it? Do not be content with so little. Reach, stretch, for something big. Neale Donald Walsch

Love is stronger than justice

Sting said that, and it is perfectly true. So if you feel that you have been « unjusted » and are looking for ‘justice’, you may be looking for the wrong thing. What would happen if you sought love instead? And what would happen if you gave love instead of seeking it? This might require a bit of forgiveness. Yet if you start with yourself–if you begin by forgiving yourself for all the things you may have done that were not okay with another, you will find it much easier to forgive another for what was done that is not okay with you. It’s just a thought… Neale Donald Walsch

The gifts you have to give are multitudinous and magnificent – and your time to give those gifts has only just begun

The life events of this moment are being placed in your life to provide you with a perfect context within which to experience the true wonder and glory of Who You Really Are.

Take a look at what you are facing in this moment, on this very day. Do you think this is by accident? Neale Donald Walsch

What a man can be, he must be

This need we call self-actualization. Abraham Maslow said that, and he was right. Inside of every living thing is an inner drive, a Divine impulse, to completely and wondrously self-express. That is, to be what it is, totally. What is it you have always wished to be or do? Make this the Time of Your Beginning, and the Moment of Your Manifestation. Don't wait another day! Neale Donald Walsch

There are choirs singing in your head

If you listen, you will hear the music. It is the song of angels. Pay no attention to the sounds of the world. They are just noises, and even when added up all together they have no value, make no sense. Strain to hear the song of angels. Listen to the melody within your soul. This message is a metaphor. You know exactly what it is trying to tell you. Neale Donald Walsch
