Conversations with God
I have waited a year to write about a special series of books that I read back in Cape Town. You don’t need to be into “spirituality” to appreciate them, you don’t need to be anything actually, but if you’ve ever wondered about life, death and everything inbetween, then you might want to give it a go.
Who knows, you might learn something? Or remember…
The books are available in Swedish (“Samtal med Gud”) but unfortunately already by the title you are more likely to have a feeling of Lutheran Sunday school chills and discomfort than of curiosity and interest. Swedish people are not religious, much less spiritual. But. If you have found your way to this blog and you feel what I’m saying, take my word for it and get a hold of these books online.
Forget every preconceived idea you have about “God”, or don’t if you will, but remember that it is you, as an interpreter that designs your reality.
Therefore, do not consider it a “Conversation with God” but with yourself. Also, I suggest you do what I have done with my books. Make remarks, underline words and sentences, fold the pages, go back and reread them, take them with you, consider them a reminder of everything you already know.
One night, Neale Donald Walsch felt a need to express his frustration on what he believed to be failures and disappointments of his life. He decided to go straight to the source. He decided to write a letter to God. After pouring out questions about why he couldn’t find happiness in his relationship and why he didn’t have more success, he suddenly felt an invincible force take control of his pen and mind.
Do you really want an answer to all these questions, or are you just venting?
He continued to write as the thoughts came to his head.
Both. I’m venting, sure, but if these questions have answers, I’d sure as hell like to hear them!
And there the dialogue began. It continued for more than three years and produced three books on these topics;
Individual Truths – personal topics such as love and fear, needs and desires, creation and experience.
Global Truths – geographical and metaphysical life and the challenges now facing the world.
Universal Truths – opportunities of the soul.
The books are easy, reflective and completely authentic. Depending on where you “are” in life, you will appreciate different things, hence why the dialogue is ongoing. Believe what you will, but always, always, keep you heart open.
And read these books. They WILL blow your mind!
