An urgent question:
WITH THE WORLD IN TURMOIL,
HOW CAN WE RESPOND?

And so, again.

Paris again. Terrorists again. A world in turmoil again.

When I heard the news about the events in Paris on Nov. 13 I felt exactly the way I felt on Sept. 11, 2001. Sad. Determined. Re-committed. I knew that people all over the world who have read Conversations with God would ask: How does this fit into the ideas in your books, Mr. Walsch? How does this fit into see the perfection, and there are no victims and no villains in the world, and there is no such thing as Right and Wrong, and all the other messages of CWG?

Those are fair questions. Very fair questions. I ask them myself when things such as this occur. And they are occurring now with more frequency than ever before, around the world. So I have updated a small booklet that I wrote a while ago addressing these questions, and I have added to that document a word-for-word copy of the statement I issued the day after the 9-11 attacks on the United States.

It is my desire that as many people as possible have an opportunity to read this material, so I will be excerpting it in a series of passages in this space over the days ahead. Those who do not wish to wait to finish the document as each new installment is posted here may access the document in full, downloading it HERE at no cost.

Below is the first installment:

A WORLD IN TURMOIL: How we can respond – Chapter One

IT HAS BEEN A VERY LONG TIME since the world has been in the kind of turmoil that humanity is facing today at nearly every turn.

The document you are reading is being updated in the days following the horrific and highly coordinated multiple terrorist attacks on the city of Paris, France on November 13, 2015 in which scores of people were randomly killed in restaurants, at the city’s largest concert hall, and elsewhere.

This deeply saddening incident was just the latest in a string of events reflecting major geopolitical upheaval occurring simultaneously across the globe, coincident with deep social unrest, growing financial instability, and even near-epidemic threats to human health—all of this throwing the Earth’s inhabitants into a state of rapid sequential shocks and unremitting worry.

Even as the world’s governments and its non-governmental non-profit helping organizations scramble to collect their resources and respond to these occurrences, people everywhere are beginning to ask: “Is this the beginning of the end? Is this the start of the termination of life as we know it on this planet?”

As many people know, it has been predicted for a very long time that precisely during this period in humanity’s habitation of the Earth, simultaneous calamitous events would occur, both political and environmental, that would engulf the planet.

So…is this where we are?

Yes. I believe the answer is yes.

Is there nothing we can do but gird ourselves for ongoing and ever-increasing disaster?

I believe the answer is no.

I believe that what is happening right now is part of a Larger Process. It is a process by which humanity is being invited to re-define itself. Indeed, to recreate itself anew in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever our species held about Who We Are.

I believe that futurist and visionary Barbara Marx Hubbard has said is right. What we are seeing on the earth is a birthing of our species into the cosmic community of sentient beings.

Metaphorically speaking, humanity has been in its gestation period for hundreds of thousands of years. That may seem like an unfathomably period of time, but measured against the age of the Universe it is less than the blink of an eye.

A lot of people like to think of humans as highly evolved. In fact, humanity has just emerged from the womb of the cosmos. In their book New World New Mind, Robert Ornstein and Paul Ehrlich placed this in perspective in one mind-boggling paragraph:

Suppose Earth’s history was charted on a single year’s calendar, with midnight January 1 representing the origin of the Earth and midnight December 31 the present. Then each day of Earth’s “year” would represent 12 million years of actual history. On that scale, the first form of life, a simple bacterium, would arise sometime in February. More complex life-forms, however, come much later; the first fishes appear around November 20. The dinosaurs arrive around December 10 and disappear on Christmas Day. The first of our ancestors recognizable as human would not show up until the afternoon of December 31. Homo sapiens—our species—would emerge at around 11:45 pm…and all that has happened in recorded history would occur in the final minute of the year.

Knowing that we are among the infant species of the Universe renders our behaviors perhaps more understandable. It certainly renders our future more hopeful.

As in every birthing, there is the potential of both danger and joy in the process. Yet we can dissolve the danger, eliminating it from our experience, by simply understanding what’s going on here.

In our movement towards maturing we can create the best of times, not the worst of times. It may not look that way now, I know. Indeed, it may seem to some, on many levels, to be almost hopeless. Yet there is a way you can join in creating the best of times, advancing your own personal spiritual evolution and assisting in the same forward movement for all those you love, for all others whose lives you touch, and, by extension, for the whole human family.

  • Awareness

    The following quotes contain part of the responses from Cosmic Awareness (GREAT SPIRIT! GREAT AWARENESS!) 🙂

    “That which is Awareness will start with is the declaration that this was indeed a false flag event. That indeed it could be even understood to be false flags for there were several events that occurred under an umbrella of organization to ensure that all the attacks carried out on 13th of November were simultaneous.”

    “That this Awareness would point out that a few weeks before the actual events in Paris, that there was a gathering of the secret agencies of several countries in Paris. There were those from the CIA, high-level members of the CIA, that were in Paris for this meeting, as there were members of MI 6 as well as the Mossad, as well as the officials from France’s own Secret Service, and that these ones met several weeks before. That the claim that they made at the time was that they were there because of the Paris conference that will soon be taking place and coordinating their efforts to ensure the safety of all the dignitaries that would be gathering in Paris, but this was simply a cover story.

    It is seen that these ones were the ones behind the actual planning and the orchestration of the attacks in Paris on 13th of November.”

    So whoever is behind these particular attacks in Paris right now, what is the reason for this, what are they setting up?

    To understand this, one must also understand what has been occurring in Syria and Iraq over the last couple of months. This especially so since the Russian forces have been involved in Syria, have backed the legitimate ruler and people of Syria. That they have been highly successful, the Russians, the Syrians and the others that have joined them in destroying ISIS bases, in destroying the ammunition depots and equipment storage places, thus also destroying much of the equipment and arms of ISIS over the last two months and that they have been highly successful in this effort. So much so, that it has literally disabled ISIS as an effective force in that region, but this is not being reported.

    Rather what is now underway is a building up of the reputation of ISIS, taking them out of the arena of the Middle East so to speak, and now creating a threat that is worldwide.

    The taking down of the Russian airliner was to introduce the possibility that ISIS could put a bomb on any plane anywhere and destroy it. This upping the prestige and effectiveness of ISIS. That this Awareness would also say this event, the shooting down of the Russian airliner was not an ISIS event even though it is claimed to be so.”

    But it is not even a bomb, is it?

    That it was not a bomb but this Awareness does not wish to go deeply into that matter at this point. What It wishes to state is that also the attacks in Paris were meant to escalate again and enhance further the effectiveness of ISIS to strike at targets anywhere in the world.

    This Awareness states that this is psychological warfare. That they, those who are behind ISIS, those who created Islamic state, those who have a hidden agenda have seen that the effectiveness of the fighting forces in Syria and Iraq, the ISIS forces are being dismembered, are being shut down, but they still need ISIS to be the boogeyman that can evoke such terror in the hearts and minds of the peoples of the world, the free world as it is called sometimes.

    That this is still needed. The psychological warfare is to present the scenario that ISIS has now the capacity to strike anywhere, escalating the need for vigilance or allegedly, the need for vigilance.”

    “That it is perhaps too easy to say: “do not believe these ones“, but that is exactly the first step. Do not believe what is reported on your televisions, over the radio waves, over the Internet, over the lines of communication behind the newspapers, and the press. Ask questions, be observers to the events, hone the ability to sense the truth of events. These events are becoming more and more obvious. If one does not look at them from a place of neutrality, detached from the emotional impact of such events, then one might be inclined to believe the lies that are being put out by those with a hidden agenda and hidden purposes. That one must stay neutral, one must ask questions, one must develop that sense of priority and discernment to the events that are going on.

    On a more esoteric level, and that this is one that is far harder for most to accomplish, but is still needed, is the realization that even though events are taking place that have serious impact, that one is still the creator of their own lives. What this means is that the life experience that the individual is having is unique to them. If they embrace the lies and the deceptions that are being put out then the individual will unconsciously use their own creative power to support the lies, then the individual begins to interpret their reality as one where there is danger, where there is an enemy, a false enemy, the true enemy not being perceived.

    As Creator beings, as spiritual beings, when you do this, then you energize these events even more and then there is the likelihood that you may be affected by such false events.”

    “That the last wave of energy that went through, that this Wave X energy that recently passed through, has shifted much, and this Awareness certainly can say: more are beginning to awaken and more are beginning to question.

    Remember that there is another level to all of this and that is the level of Spirit Itself, Divine Source Itself, and that these energies are in entering into human consciousness more and more each and every day, and that this too is that which must be remembered when one is being bombarded by such dark events. That there is new light coming into the world and that more and more are awakening to the light of consciousness and Spirit.”

    “There are shifts that are happening and greater shifts that are coming and those that are in power who are doing such deeds, such devilish deeds, horrendous deeds, know this as well, and it is why they are becoming more and more desperate, for they understand they only have a short time now to try to accomplish those long-standing plans, the Master Plans, and that their time is running out. They are on the descendence, Spirit, humanity is on the ascendance, it is rising, it is growing, it is becoming.” by Cosmic Awareness (GREAT SPIRIT! GREAT AWARENESS!) 🙂

    Bless ALL 🙂

      • Patrick Gannon

        HA! Good luck with that, Hyori. Trying to get proof out of Mr. Awareness, who regularly quotes Will Berlinghof, AKA Cosmic Awareness, AKA some alien he’s channeling from outer space, is not going to happen. I’ve watched some of his videos and I would say he is straight out of the looney bin, except that he’s not. He’s smart enough to get foolish people to send him money for “readings” with the great invisible, imaginary Cosmic Awareness dude. I have mixed feelings about separating fools and their money. I guess it’s good work if you can get it!

        Berlinghof claimed that on Dec. 21, 2012 we were hit with some sort of ‘whatever’ that is to affect us in an exponential fashion – except that there isn’t a shred of evidence to show that anything of any sort is replicating at any significant rate. Now we have Wave X that Berlinghof claims CERN tried to shoot down, which (didn’t) hit us at the end of Sept, and it’s changing our world. Except that it isn’t. The woo is so deep you can scoop it with a shovel.

    • Stephen mills

      Are you saying this is all about the military industrial complex ,perpetuating and creating war for their own benefit ! The banks profit survival mentality .
      Create the problem ,react to the problem and then offer the solution !!
      David Icke seems to think this as well.

      Anyhow’s we are in one big mess and reading Neales document gives us the only hope off getting us back to peace and prosperity for all .

      The solution is still the same never mind who the actors are ,it’s Spiritual !! Peace comes from within .

    • mewabe

      There are all kinds of conspiracy theories circulating out there on the web. Does it mean everyone has become paranoid?

      It is no mystery that governments have lied in the past, that they have manipulated their populations into wars, that they often operate in secrecy, that they mostly serve the very wealthy, and occasionally break their own laws. After a while, people no longer trust their governments. That’s a very logical, rational and predictable outcome.

      It is also not a mystery that those who have power and authority often seek to expand such power and authority. Power is a drug.

      Trying to figure out what governments are actually doing, what their actual agendas are, without actual proof, is a bit futile, and an expression of fear and powerlessness.

      It would be more beneficial for populations to reclaim their own power and create the world they want independently of such governments, rather than being obsessed with the manipulations of those who claim power and authority over them while no longer actually representing them.

  • Francisco Morfi

    All of these events are showing up in spite of our efforts to deter them. I think that we don’t get it yet. No matter what form violence takes, it’s not the solution. It doesn’t matter if it’s in retaliation or out of some crooked idea that it’s the way, violence does not work. Until all nations take a firm stance against such behavior and develop a protocol, adopt a standard operating procedure to deal with it, we will continue to be witness of these occurrences. Understanding that we are all one is the only solution. We need to respect differences and discontinue the need to impose our views or beliefs on others. As Neale states in his CWG series: “ours is not the only way, ours is merely another way.”

  • mewabe

    Unfortunately, the Islamic State (ISIS) is not actually a terrorist group, but a Caliphate whose religious roots, to be found in a Koran read completely literally, drive its members to struggle to manifest an apocalyptic vision of end times, of Armageddon. Sounds familiar? They seek to provoke and draw western nations into an initial conflict in Dabiq that they think they will win in the end in Jerusalem with the intervention of Jesus spearing Dajjal (the anti-messiah, namely western nations according to their beliefs).

    No, I am not making this up. We are seeing crazy religious prophecies unfold before our unbelieving eyes. All fundamentalists are aching to see the world blown up to speed up the fulfillment of their own prophecies. And who are these fundamentalists? Not Taoists, not Shintoists, not Buddhists, not Indus, not Native Americans, not any of these relatively sane people. The Fundamentalists who seek to make Armageddon a reality are Muslim fundamentalists, Christian fundamentalists and Jewish fundamentalists, all chomping at the bit to see the world end.

    • Patrick Gannon

      You are correct that ISIS is not a terrorist group. They are righteous. As long as mainstream religions insist that their texts are “holy” and “sacred” then those who follow the words of those texts to the letter, are the truly righteous ones.

      I think, the only way this ends is when the mainstream admits that these texts are myths, and pulls out the base upon which extremism rests.

      • mewabe

        That’s the problem, contradictions leading to hypocrisy with these religionists: on one hand they declare that they holy books are the word of God, and on the other hand they pick and choose which rule should be followed and which should not.

        Fundamentalists are crazy but at least they are consistent. If it say in their book that adulterers should be stoned, they stone them, not questioning the word of their God.

        The logical argument to be made is that if these books are the word of God, then take your son to the edge of town and kill him when he disobeys you. If you think that’s crazy, then it can’t really be the word of God. And if some things are not to be trusted in such books, then why not question the entire book and throw it in the trash, because unable to decide what is true and what is not?

        Unfortunately logic is not very popular among believers.

        • Patrick Gannon

          I agree with all that except the part about throwing the book in the trash. The bible had a huge influence on English literature, and of course world, and particularly western, civilization and history, including the development of our legal system. The King James version has some beautifully written prose, and it directly influenced the development and evolution of the English language, so the book is worthy of continued study from a historical, literary and philosophical perspective – just as we study the ancient Greek and Roman literature about their imaginary “pagan” gods.

          The time has come to call it what it is – mythology.

    • Georges Dupont

      “when humanity has become kind of normal”

      Well, the main problem is that humanity has many different groups with very different values and goals. It has been always the case, and it will stay the same for a very long time. Often we consider that our values are shared by all human beings, but this is a profound error i think.
      Consider for example the following groups(of course there are more groups, and this doesn’t explain everything) :
      – Traditional religious people (Jews, Christians, Muslims) think that we are on earth to repent and to follow every word of their holy book. If you are not following their religion, which is of course, the only valid one, you will burn in hell for ever.
      – People who are following the modern values, think often that rationality explains everything. This means that there is no god and that there is only the physical world. Scientific laws can explain everything. As we have only this life, we are here to enjoy life, and we must work hard in order to succeed at the material and social level.
      – Now there are also the people at the ‘post-modern’ stage. People consider here that we are all brothers and sisters and that we are here to share peace and love. Most of the readers of CWG are in this stage. This is my case.

      As you can see these groups have very different values and goals. The main problem is that each group considers that their values are the only valid ones, and that others values are absurd.

      • mewabe

        That’s true, and I don’t necessarily think that everyone should agree on everything, except on this one thing: to live and let live. Humans might never agree, because imagination and creativity cause people to have different focuses, perceptions, dreams and expectations.

        Here is what I would consider being sane or normal…a respect, tolerance for and celebration of multiplicity and diversity.

        People should be free and allowed to explore the vast and joyful realms of consciousness without being stopped by fearful individuals who distrust their own power and creativity, and set up rigid and extremely limited rules of behavior and narrow mental territories.

        Why are such simple things as freedom and tolerance so difficult for humanity to embrace? People who attempt to force their views on others usually do so because of basic insecurities. Insecurities that grow into fear appear to be the single greatest source of violence in the world.

  • Patrick Gannon

    I have a couple points.

    1) In early April of this year about 150 students, mostly Christian were killed at a college in Kenya by Islamic extremists. Where was the world’s outcry over that? Why didn’t everyone change their FaceBook avatars to the Kenyan flag? I guess skin color matters.

    2) This is an opportunity for Israel to take over the world’s stage. There was no Exodus. Without an Exodus there is no basis, no foundation, no viable support for any of the Abrahamic religions. Israel knows this. Their very best, brightest, and most world famous leading archaeologists know that there isn’t a shred of actual evidence to support the Exodus – and they searched harder than anyone to find it. (Christian fundies have searched as well, and they too have failed). The search has been given up as fruitless by mainstream archaeologists. Egypt’s history has nothing to support the biblical Exodus – nothing, not even hints at stuff that a loser might try to hide. There was no Exodus and everyone in academia knows this. If Israel were to publicly admit that there was no Exodus, and therefore they are not “chosen people” and the land was not given to them by Bible God, this would pull the foundation out from underneath all three religions and spawn the discussion the world needs to have.

    I’m not proposing that they give up the land. Possession is 9/10 of the law, as they say; but if Israel wanted to take center stage in the global discussion, they could do it. This admission would require that all three Abrahamic religions talk about the fact that their religions are all based on an event that never happened. War is not the answer, discussion is – and Israel, it seems to me, is the best candidate to kick it off. All the ONEness woo in the world isn’t going to solve this problem – facing the real issue is what it will require; and the real issue is that in the year 2015 we’re still killing each other over the interpretations of mythical events.

    • mewabe

      Great points Patrick.
      Unfortunately, fundamentalist Jews also have an end times, Armageddon agenda to fulfill…along with fundamentalist Muslims (the Islamic State) and fundamentalist Christians.

      What about Boko Haram massacring 2000 people in Nigeria? Few apart from Amnesty International noticed. Some people are more equal than others.

      • Patrick Gannon

        My idea that Israel step up to the plate, face facts, admit them, and start a truly worthy global conversation, would have some impact on Neale as well, should it ever take place. In CwG, it’s pretty clear that Neale believes (or did at the time – 20 years ago we didn’t know what we know now) that Moses was a real person. There are some scholars who think the figure of Moses was based on an individual with a similar name from an earlier civilization; but the possibility that the Moses of the Exodus was a real person is practically nil. He certainly didn’t lead 2 – 3 million people including 600,000 fighting men through the desert to Mt. Sinai or anywhere else. Egypt the superpower of the time had the largest army in history – about 100,000 fighting men. The story in the bible is nonsensical and cannot be made to fit any timeline without breaking down and invalidating other parts of the bible. Neale also seems to believe Jesus really performed miracles and rose from the dead, but without the Exodus, there’s no Bible God to raise him from the dead, nor, in light of evolution and the destruction of the original sin concept, any reason to do so.

        What this means to me, is that the “God hallucination” sitting on his shoulder, whispering into his ear, either gave him bad information or (far more likely), this so-called conversation was a product of what Neale knew and believed at the time. This is the same problem the Apostle Paul faces – Jesus neglected to tell him about evolution, and apparently led Paul and others to believe his return was imminent, and of course that didn’t happen. It seems you just can’t trust these gods!!!

        BTW, I think I’ve figured out from reading science articles how the so-called LoA works… No gods required.

            Patrick, stoned is something for young whippersnappers. I am 53. I don’t get stoned anymore, but I might ask if you do because you are a devout atheist frequenting a conversation with god sort of blog. Why do you frequent such a blog that claims to converse with God, but why do you always have to horn in on other conversations? Can’;t you let anyone else talk without piping in on their dialogue? I didn’t come to talk, especially to an atheist. If you don’t know about simultaneous realties, multiple “you’s” and time travel, all of which Neale discusses in great detail in CWG Book 3, then you shouldn’t be talking to me at all. I know a little about quantum energy, and I am a psychic in the highest. Those who don’t know they are spiritual or have a spirit or even that God is alive, much less love, then what is the point at all of talking together? We just won’t ever be on any whew same page. Good day.

      • shenika

        Hi nothing but the best for you. whew Neale speaks about the ability to walk through walls in CWG. He speaks about leaving one’s body at will. Of course, this is disembodied spirit we are talking about. Ghost toasties and such are not the stuff of stars and Arcs. whew At any rate, you can be your own judge. Read CWG. You’ll see a lot there like “hitler went to heaven,” “love and fear are the same thing or on the same temperature scale.” whew I don’t think so, do you? Love? Fear? Not on your life. Love is never on a sclae with fear. Love is Heaven. Fear is Hell. You be the judge. Do you want Hitler running around in Heaven? I don’t. Neither does God. Hitler is a satanic force, a dimness that archangel came to deplete. Is Satan real? Yes, of course Whew That’s all I need to say. Have a good day Whew

  • Georges Dupont

    Dear Neale,

    First i want to express again my gratitude for all what you are doing and try to accomplish. I am sure it’s not an easy task to bring more light in this world when you are a public figure. I din’t read yet your booklet, but i will do it soon.
    In our period, with internet and the modern means of communication we know almost instantly what’s going in every part of the planet. So we know every act of violence which are happening all the time. Of course this was not the case in the past. Imagine : in the middle age, very often people were living all their life in the same region, and knew very little what’s what going outside. I think that’s one reason we feel that there is more and more violence in this world. Don’t get me wrong : i am not saying there is no violence and that everything is perfect ! Far from it ! We’ve been always living in a violent world, but now we are flooded all day by media with very bad news.

    Now, what we are going to do with all these events ? I understand the emotion and the shock of the people when they react to such atrocities. But let’s not forget that every day around us there are suffering and tragic deaths. For instance even in rich countries, every day there are people committing suicide. Now when terrorist attacks happen in rich countries, people are talking about it during weeks and even months, but that doesn’t change their behavior in everyday life. I feel it’s more important to care about people we are in contact everyday than to talk about a things we don’t have the power to change directly. People seem concerned about global event, such as global warming, but they don’t seem to care about their neighbor. I remember when September 11th happened in my company. Everybody was running excited and talking about it, always watching the news on internet. In this company, people didn’t talk much and didn’t care much about each other. And September 11th didn’t change anything at all. So what’s the point of saying all the time that’s it’s horrible and we stand by the victims if in everyday life we stay the same ? Let’s watch less the news and be more concerned with the people with meet everyday.

    How do we respond?
    By using our imagination!

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one
    John Lennon, Plastic Ono Band
