My purpose in providing them is to interest you, the reader, and hope that you will obtain and read the complete work. To properly understand the highlights, you need to read the book to put them in the proper context. It comes not a moment too soon. I understand that this is not always easy to come by. To have an open mind, we have to agree with ourselves not to dismiss out of hand that which appears to violate every sense of things that we have previously had every idea about life that we have previously held to be true.
Older people think that young people cannot see. Yet young people see everything. Nothing is hidden from them. They see the hypocrisy of their elders, and they try desperately to change it.
Yet having tried and failed, they see no choice but to imitate it. In this they are wrong, yet they have never been taught differently. They have not been allowed to critically analyze what their elders have been doing. They have only been allowed to memorize it. What you memorize, you memorialize. And why do you hide images of love? What does your child understand from this? Until you are willing to take responsibility for all of it, you cannot change any of it. Schools are exactly the place for such instruction.
It is in your schools! They have not taken you where you say you want to go.
So stop! Turn around! Sit down together and collect your thoughts. Create the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about yourselves as a human race. Then, take the values and concepts which undergird such a vision and teach them in your schools. How They Function.
Data from a prior time or experience should always and only be the basis for new questions. Always the treasure should be in the question, not in the answer.
With regard to this data which we have shown you, do you agree, or do you disagree? What do you think? Always, this is the key question. Always this is the focus. They take action or fail to take action — for one set of reasons, then give as a rationale another of reasons.
There are very few governments which do not deliberately mislead their people. So politics is the way that people of power seek to convince you that their self-interest is your own. Why, then do you not have them? Look to see who would lose money if you did. There you will find your answer. If so, how? It is a lack of caring. The entire planet faces a crisis of consciousness.
You must decide whether you simply care for each other. By constructing a new model of the world. By holding it within the framework of a new idea.
This will happen only when you reconstruct your global reality and govern yourselves accordingly. Intolerance produces war and looks indifferently upon intolerable conditions. Each of the nation states now making up your world must unite. Internal order would be your only need. That experiment is called the United States of America. We are here exploring a geopolitical one.
Spiritual truth must be lived in practical life to change everyday experience. You are right. Yet there need not be wars. There need not be killing. When you find peace within, you also find that you can do without. It frees you, first, from fear: Anger is a fear announced. When you have nothing over which to be angry. Strive to see the perfection.
This is the change of consciousness of which I speak. Desire everything. Choose what shows up. Yet when you move to God consciousness, you can do it. It depends on how you wish to experience the moment. In your darkest hour, I will be your light. In your blackest moment, I will be your consolation. In your most difficult and trying time, I will be your strength. Therefore, have faith! For I am your shepherd; you shall not want. I will cause you to lie down in green pastures; I will lead you beside still waters.
My rod and My staff will comfort you. Does it serve you to hold that? What do I want here? I did this by providing you with: Relativity — a system where in you could exist as a thing in relationship to something else. Forgetfulness — a process by which you willingly submit to total amnesia, so that you can not know that relativity is merely a trick, and that you are All of it. In this paradigm, Consciousness is everything.
Consciousness — that of which you are truly aware — is the basis of all truth and thus of all true spirituality. It is Me being Me — through you! You have a power compulsion. It is the implementation of this beautiful idea that can become ugly.
Sharing should be voluntary, not forced. You understand that in no primitive societies such laws are unnecessary. All beings regulate themselves. As I have said, the challenge is to find the balance between helping people and hurting them.
When in doubt, always err on the side of compassion. Are your fellow humans enlarged or reduced as a result of your help? Have you made them bigger or smaller? More able or less able? Only in the world of man is goodness limited.
I have said before — consciousness is everything. No one truly desires to hurt another. Those who do it — including your own governments, by the way to get something they want. Simply want nothing. Have preferences, but no needs. In terms of geopolitics, why not work together as a world to meet the most basic needs of everyone? Everything is intrinsically connected, irrevocably interdependent, interactive, interwoven into the fabric of all of life.
All laws must be rooted in it. This is the future hope of your race; the only hope for your planet. Yet, how will that come about? Somebody has to start. You can be the source of this New Consciousness. You can be the inspiration. Indeed, you must be. Who else is there? Seek to build, not to destroy. Seek only Godliness. Speak only in truthfulness. Act only in love.
Live the Law of Love now and forevermore. Give everything, require nothing. Avoid the mundane. Do not accept the unacceptable. Teach all who seek to learn of Me. In this, glorify your Holy Self, and thus, too glorify Me. Remember always, you are the gift! In so doing, he gives a gift to you — the gift of your experiencing and fulfilling Who You Are.
Never insist on offering the help you think is needed. Let the person or people in need know all that you have to give — then listen to what the want; see what they are ready to receive.
And in the aftermath of that there would be fairness and equity, honesty and true for-the-good-of-all priority in the conduct of human affairs.
Everyone knows what everyone else has, what everyone else pays in wages and taxes and benefits, what every other corporation charges and buys and sells and for how much and for what profit and everything.
This is about simply telling the truth when you speak, and about withholding no truth when you know it should be spoken.
This is about never again lying, or shading or verbally or mentally manipulating, or twisting your truth into the hundred and one other contortions which typify the largest number of humans communications.
This is about ensuring that all individuals have all the data and know everything they need to know on a subject. Turn back to the very beginning of this book and review again the Five Levels of Truth Telling.
Determine to memorize this model and implement it. Seek the truth, say the truth, live the truth every day. Do this with yourself and with every person whose life you touch.
Start in your own family, in your own home. If you own a business, start in your own company. Tell everyone in your own firm exactly what you make, what the company are making and spending, and what each and every employee makes. You will shock the hell out of them. The choice is yours. You can be that new way. In everything.
Not just in business, not just in your personal relationships, not just in politics or economics or religion or this aspect or the overall life experience, but in everything. Be the higher way. Be the grandest way. Then you can truly say, I am the way and the life.
Follow me. Violent resolution of disagreements, however, is a sign of extraordinary immaturity. As long as you think you can win an argument, you will have it. As long as you think you can win a war, you fight it. This apparent contradiction is part of the Divine Dichotomy. Under this new system, the security of the smallest nations will be guaranteed not by whose back they scratch, but by who is backing them. That long-term solution — and the only real one — is a New Awareness, and a New Consciousness.
An awareness of Oneness and a consciousness of Love. It is misplaced there. This misplaced priority is what has created all of the problems we have discussed here. Your new incentive: People have a right to basic survival. Even if they do nothing. Even if they contribute nothing. Survival with dignity is one of the basic rights of life.
I have given you enough resources to be able to guarantee that to everyone. All you have to do is share. Hear your Self. Even when I present you with an option, an idea, a point of view, you are under no obligation to accept that as your own.
If you disagree, then disagree. That is the whole point of this exercise. The idea was to cause you to think. To think for your Self. And that is who I am right now. I am you, thinking, I am you, thinking out loud. You…YOU…are creating it. Not Me. The 10 percent tithe of all that is earned worldwide on top of those savings would elevate all of society, not just the chosen few, to a new level of dignity and abundance.
Your rich industrialists go into a country or an area where there is no work at all, where the people are destitute, where there is object poverty. Not enough, mind you, to allow those workers to escape their rat-infested villages, but just enough to let them live that way, as opposed to having no food or shelter at all.
And for most of the rich and powerful it is not a conspiracy of action, but a conspiracy of silence. Consider the possibility that I have chosen you, along with many others, to be My messenger long before this book came to be. I observe that you have the collective arrogance to think they are the best. A change in your awareness. A renewed respect for all of life, and a deepened understanding of the inter-relatedness of everything. You are not providing equal opportunity all the while you are loudly protesting that you are.
Does society have a responsibility to itself? There is no true law on your planet. True law is Natural Law — inexplicable and not needed to be explained or taught.
It is observable. Their agreement is therefore not so much an agreement as it is a mutual recognition of what is So. They already are enforced, by the simple expedient of undeniable consequence. If you keep getting him doing it, that person gets angry. If you keep getting him angry, he finds a hammer of his own eventually hits you back.
Evolved beings therefore know that if you hit someone else with a hammer, you are hitting yourself with a hammer. It makes no difference if you have more hammers, or a bigger hammer. Now, any law that is not natural law is not observable, and so has to be explained to you. It has to be shown to own good, it is self-evident. It is self-evident. And you must understand the greatest truth: Of course.
Gently you are shifting. Quietly, there is change. You must doubt yourself, you see, or you would claim all your power. That would not do. They are holding the power which is yours — and they know it. Forget about religion. Understand that in order for organized religion to succeed, it has to male people believed they need it. In order for people to put faith in something else, they must first lose faith in themselves.
So the first task of organized religion is to make you lose faith in yourself. The second task is to make you see that it has the answers you do not. And the third and most important task is to make you accept its answers without question. We can be together again whenever you want.
You and I are One — both now and even forevermore. Go now, and make of your life a statement of this truth. Allow your moments of Now to be filled with the spectacular ecstasy of God made manifest through you. Do it through the expression of your Love, eternal and unconditional, for all those whose lives you touch. Be a light unto the darkness, and curse it not.
You are that. So be it. That is, it ceases to have its illusory form. I observe that it can be extremely beneficial to them measure what we are creating against what we say we wish to experience. We may then make adjustments in the creation. You cannot change directions unless you know the direction in which you are going.
But listen, because it is more complex than you now understand. Some feelings are true feelings—that is, feelings born in the soul—and some feelings are counterfeit feelings. These are constructed in your mind. Thoughts masquerading as feelings.
These thoughts are based on your previous experience and on the observed experience of others. You see someone grimace when having a tooth pulled, you grimace when having your tooth pulled. It may not even hurt, but you grimace anyway. The greatest challenge as human beings is to Be Here Now, to stop making things up! Be in the moment. Remember, you sent your Self this moment as a gift. The moment contained the seed of a tremendous truth. It is a truth you wished to remember.
Yet when the moment arrived, you immediately began constructing thoughts about it. Instead of being in the moment, you stood outside the moment and judged it. Then you re-acted. That is, you acted as you did once before. Notice they are the same word. But, you see, the point I am trying to make is that when you come to each moment cleanly, without a previous thought about it, you can create who you are, rather than re-enact who you once were.
Life is a process of creation, and you keep living it as if it were a process of re-enactment! It may be normal, but it is not natural. Natural and normal are not the same thing. In any given moment you can do what you normally do, or you can do what comes naturally. If you act lovingly, you will be acting naturally. If you react fearfully, resentfully, angrily, you may be acting normally, but you will never be acting naturally. Ignore your previous experience and go into the moment.
Be Here Now. See what there is to work with right now in creating yourself anew. This is the purpose of all of life. Life is an ongoing, never-ending process of re-creation. You keep recreating your selves in the image of your next highest idea about yourselves. And I tell you this: Men have achieved results much greater than flying.
Men have healed sickness. Men have raised the dead. You think only one man has been granted such powers over the physical universe? And who called upon Me to heal the sick, and raise the dead?
Now, do you think that what Moses and Jesus did, you cannot do? And do you think that you cannot ask Me these same miraculous things?
Yes, many people do believe that.
conversations with god, book 2
They believe they have no power, but they have seen or believe others who had seen the power of Jesus, so they ask in his name. These thing? Many do not to this day. You all imagine you are unworthy. So you ask in the name of Jesus. Or the Blessed Virgin Mary. Or the Sun God. Or the spirit of the East. Yet I tell you this—Ask and you shall receive.
Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. Jump off the building and you shall fly. And people who have walked through walls. And even left their bodies.
CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, BOOK 2 - Law of Attraction Haven
Yes, yes. Nor do I think we should jump off buildings. That man fell to his death not because he could not have flown if he were coming from the right state of Being but because he could never have demonstrated Godliness by trying to show himself as separate from you.
The man on the building lived in a world of self-delusion in which he imagined himself to be other than the rest of you. He hoped to make himself separate. More powerful. Ego—that which is separate, individual—can never duplicate or demonstrate that which is One. By seeking to demonstrate that he was God, the man on the building demonstrated only his separateness, not his unity, with all things.
Thus, he sought to demonstrate Godliness by demonstrating Ungodliness, and failed. Jesus, on the other hand, demonstrated Godliness by demonstrating Unity—and seeing Unity and Wholeness wherever and upon whomever he looked. In this his consciousness and My consciousness were One, and, in such a state, whatever he called forth was made manifest in his Divine Reality in that Holy Moment. I see. Well, that should make things simple…. Actually, it does. More simple than you think.
And many have achieved such consciousness. Many have been Christed, not just Jesus of Nazareth. By seeking to be. By choosing to be. But it is a choice you must make every day, every minute. It must become the very purpose of your life. It is the purpose of your life—you simply do not know it. And even if you know it, even if you remember the exquisite reason for your very existence, you do not seem to know how to get there from where you are.
Yes, that is the case. So how can I get from where I am to where I want to be? I tell you this—again: Seek and ye shall find.
If not to say, disillusioned, yes? In the past, when you were very young, you came to Me only when you were in trouble, when you needed something. As you grew older and matured, you realized that was probably not a right relationship with God, and sought to create something more meaningful.
Even then, I was hardly more than a sometimes thing. Still later, as you came to understand that union with God can be achieved only through communion with God, you undertook the practices and behaviors that could achieve communion, yet even these you engaged sporadically, inconsistently. You meditated, you held ritual, you called Me forth in prayer and chant, you evoked the Spirit of Me in you, but only when it suited you, only when you felt inspired to.
You have yet to learn why you keep creating your dramas. You say you understand the meaning of life, but you do not live your understandings. You say you know the way toward communion with God, but you do not take that way. You claim you are on the path, but you do not walk it. Now—I tell you this: Act like Christ, every minute of every day. He has shown you the way. Be like Christ in every circumstance. He has left you instructions.
You are not without help in this, should you seek it I am giving you guidance every minute of every day. I Am the still small voice within which knows which way to turn, which path to take, which answer to give, which action to implement, which word to say—which reality to create if you truly seek communion and unity with Me.
Oh, nonsense! Simply do it all the time. Thank you. They are brilliant! Yes, you can! I mean, if someone told you that you could have a direct Connection with God—a direct link, a direct line—and all you had to do was make sure you had paper and pen handy at all times, would you do it? What are you saying? What is your truth?
I am with you always. I live in you. It is the central teaching. It is the ultimate truth. I am with you always, even unto the end of time. Do you believe this? Then use Me. If it works for you to take out a pad and a pen and, I must say, that seems to work pretty well for you , then take out a pad and a pen. More often. Every day. Every hour, if you have to. Get close to Me. Get close to Me! Do what you can. Do what you have to. Do what it takes.
Say a rosary. Kiss a stone. Bow to the East. Chant a chant. Swing a pendulum. Test a muscle. Each of you has your own construction. Each of you has understood Me—created Me—in your own way. To some of you I am a man. To some of you I am a woman. To some, I am both. To some, I am neither. To some of you I am pure energy. To some, the ultimate feeling, which you call love. And some of you have no idea what I am. You simply know that I AM. I am the wind which rustles your hair.
I am the sun which warms your body. I am the rain which dances on your face. I am the smell of flowers in the air, and I am the flowers which send their fragrance upward. I am the air which carries the fragrance. I am the beginning of your first thought. I am the end of your last I am the idea which sparked your most brilliant moment.
I am the glory of its fulfillment I am the feeling which fueled the most loving thing you ever did. I am the part of you which yearns for that feeling again and again. Chapter 3.
Conversations with God - Book 2 : An uncommon dialogue
So, going back and summarizing what you are telling me, I seem to come up with these main points. What is best for you is what is true for you. When thoughts and feelings get confused, truth becomes clouded, lost.
The Present Moment is the Only Reality. Stay there! So far, so good. Now you do. There is no time but this time. There is no moment but this moment. Figments of your imagination. Constructions of your mind. Nonexistent in Ultimate Reality. Everything that ever happened, is happening, and ever will happen, is happening right now.
Not completely. But you can begin to. And a beginning grasp is all that is needed here. It is an element of relativity that exists vertically, not horizontally. Think of it as a spindle, representing the Eternal Moment of Now. Now picture leafs of paper on the spindle, one atop the other. These are the elements of time. Each element separate and distinct, yet each existing simultaneously with the other. All the paper on the spindle at once! As much as there will ever be—as much as there ever was….
It is right now that everything is happening—and I am glorified. There is no waiting for the glory of God. There is no Beginning to this, and there is no End.
It—the All of Everything—just IS. Within the Isness is where your experience—and your greatest secret—lies. Indeed—and many of you have. All of you have, in fact— and you do it routinely, usually in what you call your dream state. Most of you are not aware of it. You cannot retain the awareness. You have known that soul forever! Forever is a right now thing! You have always been, are now, and always will be.
There has never been a time when you were not—nor will there ever be such a time. But wait! What about the concept of old souls! You are all Aspects of Being, simply parts of What Is. Each part has the consciousness of the Whole imbedded within it. Every element carries the imprint. The individual aspect of the ALL becomes aware of Itself.
It becomes, quite literally, self conscious. Then, gradually, it becomes conscious of all others, and then, of the fact that there are no others—that All is One. Then, ultimately, of Me. Magnificent Me! I agree. How can I see myself as great when I see all my foibles, all my mistakes—all my evil? It is true! A tree is no less perfect because it is a seedling. A tiny infant is no less perfect than a grown-up. It is perfection itself. Because it cannot do a thing, does not know a thing, that does not make it somehow less perfect.
A child makes mistakes. She stands. She toddles. She falls. Does that make the child imperfect? I tell you it is just the opposite! That child is perfection itself, wholly and completely adorable.
But I do. I know that it is wrong to kill people, and that it is right to love them. I know that it is wrong to hurt and right to heal, to make things better.
I know that it is wrong to take what is not mine, to use another, to be dishonest. Are you telling me that it is not wrong to kill, to hurt, to take from another? Okay, okay, I get it. Sometimes one has to do bad things to achieve a good end. They are just means to an end. All of life is a process of deciding Who You Are, and then experiencing that.
As you keep expanding your vision, you make up new rules to cover that! Yet you can create a concept about your boundless self by imagining, and then accepting, boundaries. In a sense, this is the only way you can know yourself as anything in particular. That which is boundless is boundless. That which is limitless is limitless. It cannot exist anywhere, because it is everywhere. If it is everywhere, it is nowhere in particular.
God is everywhere. Therefore, God is nowhere in particular, because to be somewhere in particular, God would have to not be somewhere else—which is not possible for God. And since I am everywhere, I am nowhere. I love it! You made this point in the first book, but I love it, so I let You go on.
And do you understand it better now? Do you see that without these definitions—boundaries— you are nothing? And do you see that, like Me, you keep changing the boundaries as you change your Ideas of Who You Are? Well, I get what You are saying, but it does not seem that I have changed the boundaries—my own personal boundaries— very much.
To me it has always been wrong to kill. It has always been wrong to steal. It has always been wrong to hurt another. The largest concepts by which we govern ourselves have been in place since the beginning of time, and most human beings agree on them.
Because there will always be some who break the rules. It is going to violate much of what is held as truth in your present thought system. Yet I cannot let you go on living with these constructions if this dialogue is to serve you. So we must, now, in this second book, meet some of these concepts head on. Are you ready? I think so, yes. Thanks for the warning.
I am going to tell you this: No persons do anything inappropriate, given their model of the world. I know, I know. I was doing that on purpose.
But how can I answer people like that? What could I say? You could allow them to notice that some activities on your planet prostitution, for instance are illegal in one place, and, just a few miles down the road, legal in another. Now I am going to repeat something I said in Book 1, and I know that it was very, very difficult for some to grasp, to understand.
The purpose of this book, and of all the books in the trilogy we are creating, is to create readiness—readiness for a new paradigm, a new understanding; a larger view, a grander idea. How could a man like Hitler have gone to heaven? Every religion in the world… I would think every one, has declared him condemned and sent straight to hell. First, he could not have gone to hell because hell does not exist.
Therefore, there is only one place left to which he could have gone. But that begs the question. A thing is not intrinsically right or wrong. A thing simply is. Now your thought that Hitler was a monster is based on the fact that he ordered the killing of millions of people, correct?
You think that life on Earth is better than life in heaven? I tell you this, at the moment of your death you will realize the greatest freedom, the greatest peace, the greatest joy, and the greatest love you have ever known. You are ignoring the fact that, however wonderful life after death may be, our lives here should not be ended against our will. We came here to achieve something, to experience something, to learn something, and it is not right that our lives be cut short by some maniacal hoodlum with insane ideas.
First of all, you are not here to learn anything. Reread Book 1! Life is not a school, and your purpose here is not to learn; it is to re-member.
Do you imagine that an event could take place if I did not want it to? Do you think that you could so much as lift your little finger if I chose for you not to? You can do nothing if I am against it. Those are natural causes. Same thing. To seek to unravel Divine Mystery is to lust for knowledge beyond our ken. It is sinful. Because if God wanted us to understand all of this, we would. Except where Hitler was concerned. It would seem that way… but what possible reason could You have?
It was Your Will that he have Free Choice. It was his will that he do what he did. But it is not My Will that you be punished unceasingly, unendingly, if you do not make the choice I want you to make. What kind of choice is that? But who made these Natural Laws? And if we can agree that I must have put them into place, why would I put into place such laws—then give you the power to overcome them?
Are you really comfortable with the idea of a God who creates a being whose actions it cannot control? You can control everything. You allow the devil to tempt us, to try to win our souls.
But why? Because You want us to come to You out of choice, not because there is no choice. You set up Heaven and Hell so there could be a choice.
So we could act out of choosing, and not out of simply following a path because there is no other. In your reality, Good cannot exist without Bad. So you believe it must be the same in Mine. And there is no Evil. There is only the All of Everything.
The Oneness. And the Awareness, the Experience, of that. Mine is the Realm of the Absolute, where One Thing does not exist in relationship to Another, but quite independent of anything. Life Is. You simply change form. After you change form, consequences cease to exist. There is just Knowing. Consequences are an element of relativity. These do not exist in the Realm of the Absolute. In that realm you will know at last the Good News: Your idea that you might be something else has come from an insane outer world, causing you to act insanely.
An outer world of judgment and condemnation. Others have judged you, and from their judgments you have judged yourself. And because you cannot understand a God who will not act as humans would, you are lost. You call our theologies insane—but how can any theology work without a system of Reward and Punishment? Everything depends on what you perceive to be the purpose of life—and therefore the basis of the theology. If you believe that life exists as an opportunity, a process through which you discover—remember—that you are worthy and have always been , then your theologies seem insane.
If you believe God is an ego-filled God who requires attention, adoration, appreciation, and affection—and will kill to get it—your theologies start to hold together. If you believe that God is without ego or need, but the source of all things, and the seat of all wisdom and love, then your theologies fall apart.
If you believe that God is a vengeful God, jealous in His love and wrathful in His anger, then your theologies are perfect. If you believe God is a peaceful God, joyous in Her love and passionate in Her ecstasy, then your theologies are useless. The purpose of life is to know, and to recreate, Who You Are. In so doing you do please God, and glorify Her as well. If you think God is one thing, then you will think God is not another. And that would be a large mistake. His actions were what you would call mistakes—the actions of an unevolved being—and mistakes are not punishable by condemnation, but dealt with by providing the chance for correction, for evolution.
The mistakes Hitler made did no harm or damage to those whose deaths he caused. Those souls were released from their earthly bondage, like butterflies emerging from a cocoon. The people who were left behind mourn those deaths only because they do not know of the joy into which those souls entered. No one who has experienced death ever mourns the death of anyone.
Yet given Who and What I Am, that is impossible. Everything occurring in the universe is occurring perfectly. When you see the utter perfection in everything—not just those things with which you agree, but and perhaps especially those things with which you disagree—you achieve mastery.
I know all of this, of course. But for those who have not read Book 1, I thought it important to have a basis of understanding early in this book. Quite an interesting concept. How did anyone get you to believe that? They told us the story of Adam and Eve.
You see, Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit—partook of the knowledge of Good and Evil—and thus sentenced all of their heirs and descendants to separation from God at birth.
Each of us shares in the guilt. We have to have our sins burned away. On the other hand, if we die in mortal sin, we go straight to hell. As opposed to venial sin. If we die with a venial sin on our soul, we only go to Purgatory. Mortal sin sends us right to hell. Can you give me an example of these various categories of sin you were told about? Mortal sins are serious. Kind of like Major Crimes.
Theological Felonies. Things like murder, rape, stealing. Venial sins are rather minor. Theological Misdemeanors. A venial sin would be like missing church on Sunday.
Or, in the old days, eating meat on Friday. Wait a minute! This God of yours sent you to Purgatory if you ate meat on Friday? But not any more. Not since the early sixties. But if we ate meat on Fridays before the early sixties, woe be unto us.
And this God of yours—He forces you to worship Him, to go to church on Sundays? Under pain of punishment? Failure to attend Mass is a sin, yes. But—what about a child? Well, if a child dies before it is baptized into the faith, that child goes to Limbo. The child did nothing wrong…. No matter how faultless or innocent babies are—or any persons, for that matter— they have to be baptized to get into heaven. The Holy Roman Catholic Church, of course. Any church that is not Roman Catholic.
I know this for a fact because as a young man I wanted to go with my parents to the wedding of a friend—I was actually asked to be in the wedding as an usher—but the nuns told me I should not accept the invitation because it was in the wrong church.
The nuns? I figured God—You—would show up at the other church just as willingly as You showed up at mine, so I went. I stood in the sanctuary in my tuxedo and I felt fine.
Every day is sanctified. Every minute is holy. This, now, is the Holy Instant. Well, yes, but some days are really holy—the Holy Days of Obligation—and on those days we also have to go to church. Well, you go to Purgatory if you die with that sin on your soul. Really, as often as you can. Some people go every week. Some people every day. That way they can wipe the slate clean—keep it clean so if they should happen to die…. Then we do right and resist temptation. No panic. Just make a Perfect Act of Contrition.
Chapter 4. Boy, we really got sidetracked there. We started out talking about Time and ended up talking about organized religion. That includes not just hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes, but Hitler as well. The secret of understanding is knowing the Purpose behind all events. Statements 10 and 11, for instance, beg for further clarification. Why did Hitler go to heaven? I know You just tried to explain this, but somehow I need more. And what is the purpose behind all events? And how does this Larger Purpose relate to Hitler and other despots?
All events, all experiences, have as their purpose the creating of opportunity. Events and experiences are Opportunities. Nothing more, nothing less. They are simply Events and Experiences—things that happen. It is what we think of them, do about them, be in response to them, that gives them meaning.
Events and experiences are opportunities drawn to you— created by you individually or collectively, through consciousness. Consciousness creates experience. You are attempting to raise your consciousness. You have drawn these opportunities to you in order that you might use them as tools in the creation and experiencing of Who You Are.
Who You Are is a being of higher consciousness than you are now exhibiting. Because it is My Will that you should know, and experience, Who You Are, I allow you to draw to yourself whatever event or experience you choose to create in order to do that. These souls are drawn to you by you. You are drawn to them by them. It is a mutually creative experience, expressing the choices and desires of both. Events, like people, are drawn to you, by you, for your own purposes.
Larger planetary experiences and developments are the result of group consciousness. They are drawn to your group as a whole as a result of the choices and desires of the group as a whole. Group consciousness is something that is not widely understood—yet it is extremely powerful and can, if you are not careful, often overcome individual consciousness. You must always, therefore, endeavor to create group consciousness wherever you go, and with whatever you do, if you wish your larger life experience on the planet to be harmonious.
If you are in a group whose consciousness does not reflect your own, and you are unable at this time to effectively alter the group consciousness, it is wise to leave the group, or the group could lead you. It will go where it wants to go, regardless of where you want to go.
If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be drawn to you. Individuals and smaller groups must affect larger groups— and, ultimately, the largest group of all, which is ALL humankind—for there to be permanent and significant change on your planet.
Your world, and the condition it is in, is a reflection of the total, combined consciousness of everyone living there. As you can see by looking around you, much work is left to be done.
Unless of course, you are satisfied with your world as it is. Surprisingly, most people are. That is why the world does not change. Most people are satisfied with a world in which differences, not similarities, are honored, and disagreements are settled by conflict and war.
Religious differences, in particular, are not tolerated, nor are many social, economic, or cultural differences.
Exploitation of the underclass is justified by the self-congratulatory pronouncements from the upper class of how much better off their victims are now than they were before these exploitations. By this measure the upper class can ignore the issue of how all people ought to be treated if one were being truly fair, rather than merely making a horrible situation a tiny bit better—and profiting obscenely in the bargain.
Most people even think there is no other natural way to be, that it is the nature of humans to behave in this manner, and that to act any other way would kill the inner spirit that drives man to succeed. Most people do not see that they are destroying their Earth —the very planet which gives them Life—because their actions seek only to enhance their quality of life. Amazingly, they are not far-sighted enough to observe that short-term gains can produce long-term losses, and often do—and will.
Most people are threatened by group consciousness, a concept such as the collective good, a one-world overview, or a God who exists in unity with all creation, rather than separate from it. Separation breeds indifference, false superiority. Unity produces compassion, genuine equality. But we seem to have digressed here from the original question. Not really. You asked about Hitler. The Hitler Experience was made possible as a result of group consciousness.
Many people want to say that Hitler manipulated a group—in this case, his countrymen—through the cunning and the mastery of his rhetoric. But Hitler could do nothing without the cooperation and support and willing submission of millions of people. The subgroup which called itself Germans must assume an enormous burden of responsibility for the Holocaust.
As must, to some degree, the larger group called Humans, which, if it did nothing else, allowed itself to remain indifferent and apathetic to the suffering in Germany until it reached so massive a scale that even the most cold-hearted isolationists could no longer ignore it.
You see, it was collective consciousness which provided fertile soil for the growth of the Nazi movement. Hitler seized the moment, but he did not create it. A group consciousness which speaks constantly of separation and superiority produces loss of compassion on a massive scale, and loss of compassion is inevitably followed by loss of conscience.
CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, BOOK 2 - Law of Attraction Haven PDF ( Pages)
The horror of the Hitler Experience was not that he perpetrated it on the human race, but that the human race allowed him to. The astonishment is not only that a Hitler came along, but also that so many others went along. The shame is not only that Hitler killed millions of Jews, but also that millions of Jews had to be killed before Hitler was stopped.
The purpose of the Hitler Experience was to show humanity to itself. Throughout history you have had remarkable teachers, each presenting extraordinary opportunities to remember Who You Really Are.
These teachers have shown you the highest and the lowest of the human potential. They have presented vivid, breathtaking examples of what it can mean to be human—of where one can go with the experience, of where the lot of you can and will go, given your consciousness.
The thing to remember: Consciousness is everything, and creates your experience. Group consciousness is powerful and produces outcomes of unspeakable beauty or ugliness. The choice is always yours. If you are not satisfied with the consciousness of your group, seek to change it. The best way to change the consciousness of others is by your example.
If your example is not enough, form your own group—you be the source of the consciousness you wish others to experience. They will—when you do. Hitler gave you a golden opportunity to do that. The Hitler Experience—like the Christ Experience—is profound in its implications and the truths it revealed to you about you. That is why Jews build monuments to the Holocaust and ask you never to forget it. For there is a little bit of Hitler in all of you—and it is only a matter of degree.
Wiping out a people is wiping out a people, whether at Auschwitz or Wounded Knee. So Hitler was sent to us to provide us a lesson about the horrors man can commit, the levels to which man can sink? Hitler was not sent to you. Hitler was created by you. He arose out of your Collective Consciousness, and could not have existed without it. That is the lesson. He held up a yardstick! He set a parameter, a border against which we could measure and limit our ideas about ourselves. Christ did the same thing, at the other end of the spectrum.
There have been other Christs, and other Hitlers. And there will be again. Be ever vigilant, then. For people of both high and low consciousness walk among you—even as you walk among others.
Which consciousness do you take with you? First, understand that death is not an end, but a beginning; not a horror, but a joy. It is not a closing down, but an opening up. He thought he was doing bad! If you think Hitler acted insanely and all the while knew that he was insane, then you understand nothing of the complexity of human experience. Hitler thought he was doing good for his people. And his people thought so, too! That was the insanity of it! The largest part of the nation agreed with him!
By this measure you have come to define yourself, know more about yourself. You cannot know cold unless were is hot, up unless there is down, left unless there is right. Do not condemn the one and bless the other. To do so is to fail to understand.
For centuries people have been condemning Adam and Eve. They are said to have committed Original Sin.
It was the Original Blessing. For without this event, the partaking of the knowledge of good and evil, you would not even know the two possibilities existed! Indeed, before the so-called Fall of Adam, these two possibilities did not exist.
It was, literally, paradise. Shall you then condemn Adam and Eve, or thank them? And what, say you, shall I do with Hitler? You may not agree with this, but it does not matter. You have just learned what you came here to discover. Chapter 5. You promised in the first book to explain in Book 2 a long list of larger things—such as time and space, love and war, good and evil, and planetary geopolitical considerations of the highest order.
You also promised to further explain—in some detail—the human experience of sex. Book 2 deals with your collective life on the planet. Book 3 concludes the Trilogy with the largest truths: Taken together, My best current advice and information on everything from tying your shoe to understanding your universe. There is no time.
