Most dramatic conflicts are perhaps those take place not between men, but between a man and himself

Love tolerates human foibles, faults, and failings

When someone does something you don't like, try toleration. Tell them in your nicest way that you do not feel good about what occurred or what was said, but try hard not to cold-shoulder them, and block them out of any warm connection with you. All you teach them by that is to be afraid of you -- by making them afraid of losing you...or at least the warmth of their connection with you. This is, of course, what some people say God does to us... Give people the same break you would like God (and other people, for that matter) to give you. Neale Donald Walsch

True ambition is not what you thought it was

Bill, the man who co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous, said that, and he was right. "True ambition," he said, "is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God." What is your ambition for today? What is on the top of your priority list? What are you hoping to do today? What are you hoping to be? Your answer to this question will create not just the day, but you. Neale Donald Walsch

The word salvation in the Bible means perfect health, harmony, and freedom

Emmet Fox said that, and he was right. These things are the will of God for man, he said, and he was right again. When you ponder how to achieve your 'salvation,' make sure you understand, first, what 'salvation' is. We are seeking here to save ourselves from our own misunderstandings about Life and How It Is, and about Who We Really Are. Move into the fullness of your True Identity, and watch your whole life change. Neale Donald Walsch

You will benefit enormously if you simply strive to be a good person

Strive to live rightly. This will not always be easy. It will require real work, real dedication, real commitment to the Journey of Your Soul. Yet in the end, I trust in God that it will be so very worth it, for the reward is Self Realization. To know the Self as Who You Really Are is the goal and the opportunity of each lifetime. To expand your definition of that is the invitation. I admire and deeply respect and salute you. Neale Donald Walsch

Freedom is Who You Are

'Freedom' is but another word for 'God.' It has been difficult to find words in human language to describe That Which God Is, but 'Freedom' is one of them. Another word to describe God is...You. You and God are One. Therefore you, too, are Free. Free to make choices, free to select your reactions and responses to life, free to be your authentic Self. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

Any frustration you have is simply the result of wrong thinking

If you were thinking rightly you could not possibly imagine that anything was going 'wrong.' You would know that nothing in the Universe is working against you. By definition, given Who You Are, this is impossible. Move, then, to gratitude when you encounter your frustrations. And see every event as an Opportunity. Neale Donald Walsch

Every day--nay, every moment-- you will have a chance to be Right or to be Love

Your choice will define who you are. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

You can be happy right here, not tomorrow, not in ten minutes, but now

You can be happy right now. Byron Katie said that, and she is right. Happiness is allowing yourself to be okay with what is, rather than wishing for, and bemoaning, what is not. Obviously, what is is what is supposed to be, or it would not be. The rest is just you, arguing with life. Somewhere along the way you will have to learn to just Trust Life. (Read that, "Trust God.") Why not start today? Neale Donald Walsch

Earthly possessions are not what you came here to gather

Do not worry about your earthly possessions. Place your attention on your heavenly goal--the evolution of your soul--and you will find peace even while on earth. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

Life is about your soul, not about your body and not about your mind

Most people work hard to keep the body happy. Then they seek to stimulate their mind. Then...if there is time... they look after their soul. Yet the most beneficial priority has it just the other way around. When was the last time you paid attention to your soul? Neale Donald Walsch

There are no guarantees in life

..except that all things happen for God's best reason. If you need to know in advance that everything will "work out" before you jump in, you'll never jump into anything. Yet "jumping in" is life's greatest excitement, its grandest adventure. Don't deny yourself that. Just go for it. Trust that Life will bring you benefit no matter what happens. Neale Donald Walsch

He who eats till he is sick, must fast till he is well

That is a Hebrew proverb, and it has to do with a lot more than food. Look to see what behaviors you are indulging in over and over again that are clearly not serving you. Then, go on a "bad habit diet." I mean it. I'm not kidding, Pick one bad habit, one bad behavior a day for five days. You can do this. Stop doing the stuff you're doing that obviously does not serve you--or others. This friendly "nudge" came from your Self, you know... Neale Donald Walsch

You have only just begun to discover your magnificence

This period of your life marks a New Beginning. You can feel it. And you have only just begun to know the treasure and the glory of You. And you have only just begun to make your Real and Lasting Contribution. So step into this day with zest and zeal! Go now and give your gift. We're all waiting for you. And we need the wonder of Who You Are. Neale Donald Walsch

The fastest way to learn something is to teach it

Do not wait, therefore, until you "know all about it" or have "mastered" what you wish to share before you begin to share it. The world needs more of what you wish to learn more of. So teach. Share. Help others. And do not worry so much about what you "don't know." Worry about what you don't do. Because you are robbing us while you are waiting to become an "expert." You know exactly why you heard this today. Neale Donald Walsch
