I found Book 3 of this series to be even better than book 1 (I haven’t read Book 2 yet).

Neale began to take dictation of this book in 1994 but first finished in 1998. It was well worth waiting for.

I will mention merely a comparative few of the valuable statements God provides us with.

Fear and Guilt are your only enemies. Love and awareness are your true friends.

Br cautious, be conscious, but do not be fearful.

In the following wherever I write “He” referring to God, please read “He/She”; it’s laborious for me to keep writing “He/She”.

There is no devil. (God talked about this in Book 1.)

“The biggest mistake people make in human relationships is to be concerned for what the other is wanting, being, doing, or having. Be concerned only for the Self.”

“The highest choice for the Self becomes the highest choice for another when the Self realizes that there is no-one else.”

God always gives us what is best for us. He is the Light and “the darkness that creates the Light, and makes it possible”. He is “the Goodness Without End, and the ‘Badness’ which makes the ‘Goodness’ good.” He cannot experience any part of His Self without experiencing all of his Self.

God is imagined to be all good, so we deny half of Him. Bad is necessary so that one can choose the Good.

God is the “Magnificent Everything”, who is seeking to know Himself experientially, and He does this through us and through everything else that exists. He cannot choose to be magnificent unless there is something to choose from. Thus “Some part of Me must be less than magnificent for Me to choose the part of Me which is magnificent”.

He has carefully created which He Is Not in order to experience What He Is, yet He is everything He creates, therefore He Is in a sense What He Is Not.

People believe that they need to have a thing, then do a thing and they will be a thing, e.g. happy.

But in actual fact we need to begin by being happy, or whatever, and then we will find that what we are doing leads to having what we want.

“Act as if you are (something), and you will draw it to you.”

Parents are the wrong people to raise children, as they lack experience, “Child raising was meant to be an activity of the elders, whose minds are well-developed and strong.”

In most advanced races and societies elders raise, nurture and train the offspring, and pass on to them the wisdom, teachings and traditions of their kind.

We have become a “youth-worshipping, elder-dismissing” society. People are required to retire from their jobs just when they could really do the company some good.

“Separation from God and from each other is the cause of all your dysfunctions and suffering.”

“Act as if you were separate from nothing, and no-one, and you will heal your world tomorrow.”

The purpose of our soul is to be and express Who We Really Are. Our soul is the tool through which God expresses and experiences Himself.

There have been none higher than Jesus Christ but others have been equally as high.

“God is in every flower, every rainbow, every star in the heavens, and everything in and on every planet rotating around every star.”

His Beingness is in everything. There is nothing that He is Not, and something He is Not cannot be.

Again, He explains, “My purpose in creating you – was so that I might have an experience of Myself as the Creator of my Own Experience.”

God reminds us that time does not exist, as He apparently also explained in Book 2. Everything is happening at once.

“If Satan exists, he exists as every thought you ever had of separation from Me. You cannot be separate from Me, for I Am All That Is.”

God and we are One.

After “death” the soul learns it can go anywhere with the speed of thought. It can be in several places at once.

We should only think of good and righteous things, and not on negativity and darkness.

Whatever we think of is what we create and experience, though there is a time lapse between thought and creation.

There is no time but now and no place but here.

God repeats things over and over so that we better can take them in.

Everything that occurs is the outward physical manifestation of our innermost “thoughts, choices, ideas and determinations.”

He tells us that after death we will “instantly and automatically be surrounded by beings of high consciousness – and by high consciousness itself”.

Though Hell does not exist, people can experience it.

After death you will experience exactly what you expect and choose to experience. (That’s good, because I choose to go into the Light.)

We are told that we may return to the One and experience the loss of our individual Self whenever it pleases us.

There is no separation between us and anything we desire, God never says No. (This is what Esther Hicks’ Abraham tells us, too.) But He cannot give us what we do not believe we may have because the Law says so.

If we “submit to the creations of the collective consciousness” we will quickly move into “--- total peace, total joy, total awareness, and total love” which is the consciousness of the Collective, Then we will become one with the Oneness.

We are all One. That is what was meant by “Whatsoever ye do unto the least of these --- ye do unto me.”

There is no such thing as right or wrong. A person who ends his own life is not punished by God – “I do not punish. I love.”

When we accept something we are placed in control of it. You cannot control what you deny, for you have said it is not there.

The soul is everywhere. It is larger than the body and carries the body within it.

The soul holds us together, just as the soul of God contains the Universe, and holds it together.

There is no such thing as good or evil – all there is is love.

There is only one Being and hence, only One Soul. And there are many souls in the One Being.

God says, “You deny your own greatness as you deny the existence of Me in you.”

Loving everyone full out is the most joyful thing you can do.

God is not for or against anything.

“You are Love, I am Love, and there is nothing which is not Love.”

God says: “I am you, and you are Me, and we shall never be separated, ever, because that is not possible.”

Nothing happens against the will of God. It is not possible for one soul to affect another against its will. There are no victims and no villains.

You have an internal voice telling you always of your highest choice. This is God’s voice.

God informs us in detail about highly evolved beings (HEBs) living on other planets.

God gives Neale/us a tool by which to change his/our consciousness – Act as if we were all one. We should see everyone as ourselves, just having a difficult time. Then start acting as though there were enough.

God is a work in progress, as are we.

We can see every problem as a blessing, and every perpetrator as an angel.

There are three basic wisdoms:

1) We are all One.
2) There’s enough.
3) There’s Nothing we have to do.

For those, if any, that have bothered to read this lengthy review, or part of it, I hope that I have contributed to increasing your understanding about God et alia, and have inspired you to read this valuable volume.

Reading the book will help you to become better persons and to create a better world. ( )

At least as good as book 1! ( )

Even before I had finished the previous two books in this series, I had already read the part in this book about highly evolved beings (HEBs) and life on other planets, because it answered a question I had repeatedly asked myself ever since I was a child i.e. was there life on other planets? I had always thought that there must be - the universe is just too huge for us to be the only ones 'out here' - and when this book confirmed that, how could I not read on? Many of these other inhabited planets have highly evolved civilisations and I found the descriptions of these societies absolutely mesmerising! HEBs communicate absolutely truthfully and telepathically (in fact, you can tell how evolved a society is by its dependance or otherwise on words for communication); there is no concept of ownership or loss; they share everything they have; and their children set their own curriculum at school. A key part of these societies is observing fully and acknowledging the truth of their observations, something we don't do. We see what is happening, but then we choose to ignore or deny it, because profits would suffer etc. Although I was fascinated by what I was reading, I was also somewhat discouraged to see just how far we are from realising this kind of society on Earth (compared to the HEBs, I felt like we were ants crawling around on the ground, whilst they soared like eagles above us). But by the end, the overriding emotion was one of inspiration, because I had been shown the possibility of a different, far more fulfilling existence, where everyone's experience of life can be a fair and joyful one.

The book also discusses/revisits topics such as death, psychic power, reincarnation, the nature and location of the soul, marriage, and the lack of chance or accident in everyday life (i.e. nothing happens by chance, it is all intentional, even if we can't see what the intention is).

You can read this book in isolation, but I would recommend you read Book 1 and Book 2 first, because you will get more out of it if you do. All three books are remarkable and I applaud Neale Donald Walsch for bravely challenging accepted theological doctrine and, thereby, releasing people from the fear of 'sin' and from being judged by a vengeful God. It's an uplifting and liberating message! ( )

This book directly contradicts the Bible, and I was not very happy that I found it in the Christian section of the library. It worries me that people may follow what Walsch said, believing they are the words of God. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Nancy Fleming-Walsch
Best friend, dear companion,
passionate lover, and wonderful wife,
who has brought me and taught me
more than any human being
on Earth.

I am blessed in thee
beyond my highest dream.
You have made my soul sing again,
You have shown me love
in miracle form.
And you have given me
back to myself.

I humbly dedicate this book to you,
my greatest teacher.

Book description
Op het fenomenale succes, ook in ons land, van Een ongewoon gesprek met God en Een nieuw gesprek met God, volgt nu een even fascinerend en uitdagend derde gesprek. Het gaat vooral over universele vragen die elk mens zich wel eens stelt, zoals: wat is de dood, wat is er na de dood, wat is het heelal, en wie of wat is er nog meer in het heelal? Maar ook over opvoeding, huwelijk, de zin van het leven, en vele andere onderwerpen, vindt u hier soms controversiële, maar altijd inspirerende inzichten.

God moedigt ook in dit boek Neale Donald Walsch aan, en via hem ook u, om een leven te leiden zonder angst en benepenheid, maar vol verdieping en spirituele verrijking.
Haiku summary
