I am excited this week to share with you a wonderful excerpt from The New Revelations that I happened upon the other day as I was re-reading this extraordinary text. This passage answers a question that I am asked all the time, and I just knew as soon as I chanced upon it that I wanted to put it in this space, so that you could be touched by it!
In my life there has been no greater challenge than the challenge of relationships. I am speaking here now of romantic relationships, although all of my relationships—parental, familial, personal, business—have been a test for me from the very beginning.
Fear is a natural emotion. It is built into us at the cellular level. All babies are born with only two fears: the fear of falling, and the fear of loud noises. These two fears are given to us as protections. They are tools, or devices, designed to keep us safe.
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.
I have received quite a few requests for topics to discuss in the Weekly Bulletin and one that kept reoccurring over and over again in your requests was The Law of Attraction. "Please, Neale, could you explain how the principle of 'Attraction' works, from the CWG point of view?"
It's interesting to be me. I've just decided that. It's just plain interesting to be me. You know why? I wake up many mornings with the weirdest things in my head. This morning, for instance, at 4:20 in the morning I could not sleep another wink. My mind was racing, filled to overflowing with thoughts. They were thoughts about life and the nature of Ultimate Reality. At last, I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to open my laptop and start getting them out. I had to.
I find it interesting that among the questions I am asked the most are questions on abortion. I think that people really want to know what God thinks about this issue, so that they can settle all this for themselves once and for all.
The first thing I want you to know is that God makes no judgment about these (or any other) behaviors.
There is, therefore, also no punishment. So anyone looking for a God of judgment, condemnation and punishment is going to be very disappointed in the God who talked with me. The second thing I want to say is that all behaviors are classified by us as “good” or “bad” depending upon who and what we are trying to be. That is, every value judgment we here on Earth make is based on a value system which is constructed around our own personal goals. This system has nothing to do with whether a thing is “right” or “wrong”, “good” or “bad” objectively, but only subjectively.
Let me give you some examples.
When I was living as a Street Person, under the open sky and in the weather, I came to deeply understand, experientially, the nature of fear. I also learned how to overcome it. And today I fear very little. This leads to an interesting question: What came first, my loss of fear or the Good Life that I am enjoying?
