I was taught by Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross that there are Five Natural Emotions, and that these emotions are our tools — important and vital tools — to be used in the creation of our lives and the experiencing of who we really are at the highest level.
A statement from Conversations with God that could change your life is the almost off-handed comment in the dialogue that everything you think, say and do is a prayer.
Praying is not something we do at certain times, like when we are on our knees in church, or holding hands at the dinner table. It is something we are doing always.
Let me repeat that. We are always praying.
Everything we think is a prayer. Everything we say is a prayer. Everything we do is a prayer. The problem is, we just don’t know it. We think we are praying only when we are actually, consciously engaging in the activity we call “prayer.” But here is a great secret. God calls everything prayer.
How can this be so? Why is it the way it is?
CwG says that we are all creative beings, made in the image and likeness of God. Since God is the creator, so, too, are we. God has given us tools of creation, and they are three: thought, word and deed.
When a Soul is willing for something to occur, that occurrence is much more likely to take place. When the Soul is not willing, it will be very difficult for most human beings to overcome this energy blockage and produce a desired result in physical reality.
Everything is happening for my own good. It could be no other way in the Kingdom of God. This is the startling statement made in The Holy Experience, which I consider to be one of the most important books I have ever written, following my Conversations with God encounter. What CWG led me to at last understand is that our life here is not what I, and many people, thought it was.
Last week in our ongoing series on The Holy Experience we defined it as that moment when nothing has changed, but everything is different. Now this does not mean that we should ignore all suffering, look past all of another's torment, and proceed as if nothing bad is happening in the world. Quite the contrary.
I spoke in this space last week about the fact that loneliness is the biggest social issue on our planet today. I said that we’ve been living in a world of increasing isolation, where extended families have been disappearing and the opportunities for closeness with others have been vanishing.
Nothing has impressed me more, or impacted me more, in the entire body of work known as the With God books than the Three Core Concepts of Holistic Living given to us: Awareness, Honesty andResponsibility
We are not paying enough attention to our health. Not as individuals, and certainly not as a planet. This is the single most important factor in our physical lives, and most of us are simply not paying enough attention to it.
"How is that a God of mercy can be such an isolationist and so intolerant to other views? How can a God of infinite mercy condemn anyone for anything? Why condemn magic that heals? Why condemn for eternity those transgressions that are momentary?"
