1,000 words that will
change the world

Here, in 1,000 words, is all that the human race needs to know in order to live the life for which it has yearned and which, despite trying for thousands of years, it has yet to produce. Carry these messages to your world:


 (1) We are all One. All things are One Thing. There is only One Thing, and all things are part of the One Thing There Is. This means that you are Divine. You are not your body, you are not your mind, and you are not your soul. You are the unique combination of all three, which comprises the Totality Of You. You are an individuation of Divinity; an expression of God on Earth.

(2) There’s enough. It is not necessary to compete for, much less fight over, your resources. All you have to do is share.

(3) There’s nothing you have to do. There is much you will do, but nothing you are required to do. God wants nothing, needs nothing, demands nothing, commands nothing.

(4) God talks to everyone, all the time. The question is not: To whom does God talk? The question is: Who listens?

(5) There are Three Basic Principles of Life: Functionality, Adaptability, and Sustainability.

(6) There is no such thing as Right and Wrong, there is only What Works and What Does Not Work, given what it is you are trying to do.

(7) In the spiritual sense, there are no victims and no villains in the world, although in the human sense it appears that there surely are. Yet because you are Divine, nothing can happen against your will.

(8) No one does anything inappropriate, given their model of the world. 

(9) There is no such place as hell, and eternal damnation does not exist.

(10) Death does not exist. What you call “death” is merely a process of Re-Identification.

(11) There is no such thing as Space and Time, there is only Here and Now.

(12) Love is all there is.

(13) You are the creator of your own reality, using the Three Tools of Creation: Thought, Word, and Action.

(14) Your life has nothing to do with you. It is about everyone whose life you touch, and how you touch it.

(15) The purpose of your life is to recreate yourself anew in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are.

(16) The moment you declare anything, everything unlike it will come into the space. This is The Law of Opposites, producing a Contextual Field within which that which you wish to express may be experienced.

(17) There is no such thing as Absolute Truth. All truth is subjective. Within this framework there are five levels of truth telling: Tell your truth to yourself about yourself; Tell your truth to yourself about another; Tell your truth about yourself to another; Tell your truth about another to another; Tell your truth to everyone about everything.

(18) The human race lives within a precise set of illusions. The Ten Illusions of Humans are: Need Exists, Failure Exists, Disunity Exists, Insufficiency Exists, Requirement Exists, Judgment Exists, Condemnation Exists, Conditionality Exists, Superiority Exists, Ignorance Exists. These illusions are meant to serve humanity, but it must learn how to use them.

(19) The Three Core Concepts of Holistic Living are Honesty, Awareness, and Responsibility. Live according to these precepts and self-anger will disappear from your life.

(20) Life functions within a Be-Do-Have paradigm. Most people have this backward,imagining that first one must “have” things in order to “do” things, thus to “be” what they wish to be. Reversing this process is the fastest way to experience mastery in living.

(21) There are Three Levels of Awareness: Hope, Faith, and Knowing. Spiritual mastery is about living from the third level.

(22) There are Five Fallacies about God that create crisis, violence, killing and war. First, the idea that God needs something. Second, the idea that God can fail to get what He needs. Third, the idea that God has separated you from Him because you have not given Him what He needs. Fourth, the idea that God still needs what He needs so badly that God now requires you, from your separated position, to give it to Him. Fifth, the idea that God will destroy you if you do not meet His requirements.

(23) There are also Five Fallacies About Life that likewise create crisis, violence, killing and war. First, the idea that human beings are separate from each other. Second, the idea that there is not enough of what human beings need to be happy. Third, the idea that in order to get the stuff of which there is not enough, human beings must compete with each other. Fourth, the idea that some human beings are better than other human beings. Fifth, the idea that it is appropriate for human beings to resolve severe differences created by all the other fallacies by killing each other.

(24) You think you are being terrorized by other people, but in truth you are being terrorized by your beliefs. Your experience of yourself and your world will shift dramatically if you adopt, collectively, the Five Steps to Peace:

Permit yourself to acknowledge that some of your old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.

Explore the possibility that there is something you do not fully understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which would change everything.

Announce that you are willing for new understandings of God and Life to now be brought forth, understandings that could produce a new way of life on this planet.

Courageously examine these new understandings and, if they align with your personal inner truth and knowing, enlarge your belief system to include them.

Express your life as a demonstration of your highest beliefs, rather than as a denial of them.

(25) Let there be a New Gospel for all the people of Earth: “We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.”

The 1,000 words here, embraced and acted on, could change your world in a single generation. 


The above 1,000-word summary of the 25 Core Messages from Conversations with God is from the book What God Said, released in October 2013 from Berkley Books, a member of the Penguin Group. In the book, Neale Donald Walsch reviews and expands on each of these core messages one-by-one, then offers suggestions on the practical application of every message, individually. The book may be ordered from Barnes&Noble.com, Amazon.com and other online book sources.

Neale Donald Walsch is creating what he calls The Conversation of the Century in this online newspaper, out of which he seeks to join with you in producing a Civil Rights Movement for the Soul, freeing humanity at last from the oppression of its beliefs in a violent, vengeful, and vindictive God.

What we would most benefit from right now is the releasing of our species from a global doctrine that creates separation and vicious competition, replacing it, finally, with an ethos of unity and cooperation, understanding and compassion, generosity and love.

This Civil Rights Movement for the Soul is a spiritual activist project of Humanity’s Team, a global organization that Neale founded. More information about Humanity’s Team and all of its spiritual activism projects — one in each of the Twelve Spheres of Life — may be found here.

Please Note: The mission of The Global Conversation website is to generate an ongoing sharing of thoughts, ideas, and opinions at this internet location in an interchange that we hope will produce an ongoing and expanding conversation ultimately generating wider benefit for our world. For this reason, links that draw people away from this site will be removed from our Comments Section, a process which may delay publication of your post. If you wish to include in your Comment the point of view of someone other than yourself, please feel free to report those views in full (and even reprint them) here.

    he is one stupid boy who play with all pp haha and i dnt know how pp can believe him!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 he said :

    Let there be a New Gospel for all the people of Earth: “We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.” so he is a stupid 100 % cuz its only 1 GOD and all we know that.

    • Sheri Decker

      YOU can believe anything you’d like….just as each individual in this universe. The incredible thing is that by the comments you have made, you have reiterated his points! You should be careful tho…by your own statements of your beliefs, your “GOD” isn’t going to approve of your judgements of others. I belief that is what organized religion calls HYPOCRISY. I personally, see your comments as fear.

      • Wendy Quenneville

        I doubt that dennis read CWG (that’s “Conversation With God”, dennis); for he has no understanding of the message given to us, through Neale, by God.

  • Hello Neale

    25 Core Messages are the best collection of advanced spiritual instructions ever presented
    to humanity by any master in the last 3 thousand years.
    Any human being who finds a way to remember it and understand to apply it in day to day living is on the way to heaven to meet the creator of his life.

    I am so honoured and grateful to have come to know God trough you, my dear friend Neale.

    Your Divine inspirations have opened the doors to so much wisdom that humanity is forever
    grateful. Thank you God, and thank you Neale for such a present to as all.

  • Kim

    I have been enjoying reading Neale Walsch’s messages from God for several months now… There is one message, just recently, that has brought on some question in my mind if anyone can explain this (respectfully)… “(9) There is no such place as hell, and eternal damnation does not exist.”

    • Erin

      Kim…One message that is consistently repeated in all ‘Good Books’, no matter it’s culture of origin, is “God IS Unconditional Love”. Unconditional is defined as ‘without condition, no limitation, not restricted, under all circumstance’. As well, most understand that Love is the opposing force of Fear.

      If one embraces These as Truths, then do any of those other lines ring true still?
      Fear-based teaching brings about fear-driven students…Do you not See this all about you in this day…in our many many yesterdays?

      Do you not find it ‘funny’ that all of Nature here…all of Creation everywhere…moves. Change is the constant. Yet, some maintain that a single book, or a single line of a book, or a sole notion of God-ness is their ‘rock’…however, even rocks roll & change in their Life process, yes? CWG is simply a New Version of beingness…a grander perspective of how we have been easily conditioned by Fear, and from this can we move to Be of Love, and from this can We move with wisdom & understanding greater than We had in the moment(s) prior.

      I highly suggest beginning with CWG 1…really great read. With all things that come to you, Kim…take what rings your Soul Sounds as true, and simply leave the rest. May It sing merry tunes, may It lift the weights & joylessness of Fear & send you on a journey of unconditional Love…for This is how We wish to move Now.

      Blessings, Darlin’, and Good Journey…always & all ways. 🙂

    • Anand Satyam

      Kim, I’ll be quite straightforward with you on this as I have been with others in the past. All ideas of punishment by God are parent projections of our unconscious mind to others. That is, the part of our psyche called wounded inner child “sees” parent figures everywhere, even in God. And it expects, as it happened in the past, to get punished. I know what I am talking about because I can still recognise this fear inside of me. But through effort and meditation and through Neale’s writings I have started to embrace the idea of an all Loving Creator, needing nothing. Actually I have met him a couple of times..

      Now there is another idea that could explain our stories of Hell. That is that when we die we move up to the next dimension where our thoughts materialize much faster. So someone with a pretty big mess in his/her mind would produce a living hell for himself and that is only because he is not self aware enough, not having experienced and moved to Love and Compassion enough.. Fortunately this idea-concept says that through this intense suffering someone might wake up and realize much faster what is happening and the fact that all suffering is merely our creation..

      Haven’t realised myself totally all discussed here but I have good indications to point me that these ideas hold much more Truth than the old ones.

      Thank you for hearing me.

    • NealeDonaldWalsch

      My Dear Kim…Yours is a very fair — and a very often asked — question. May I say in reply that I see that you are using, as the basis of your understandings about hell and damnation, passage from The Holy Bible. Yet these passages from the Bible would have no weight unless the words of the Bible were considered to be infallible and inerrant. That is, they are Absolutely True, to the letter. Do you believe this, Kim?

      The difficulty the world has, Kim — and I say this with total respect for your view — is that people tend to quote the Bible selectively. I call this Bible Cherry Picking. They pick out the chapters and verses that support their point of view, but totally ignore, or “write off”, verses with which even THEY disagree.

      For instance, Kim, do you agree with the verses in the Book of Deuteronomy,
      where it says that if a man marries a woman and finds that she is not a virgin,
      and if her family cannot prove that she was a virgin before her marriage, “she
      shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her
      town shall stone her to death” — ?

      Now you might say, “Wait a minute. This is God’s Law?” And the answer is, as it
      is found in the Bible, yes. The Bible also says that, if found to be in an
      adulterous relationship, both the man and the woman are to be taken to the city
      gates and also stoned to death.

      And God is concerned about other real life matters as well. Apparel, for instance. A woman “must not wear men’s clothing…for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this,” the Bible says. It also says: “Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together.”

      Then, too, only certain people are welcome in God’s house of worship. If you
      happen to be a child born out of wedlock, you cannot go to there. Did you know
      that Kim? The Bible makes this very clear. It says that no illegitimate child, “nor any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, even down to the tenth generation.”

      And, did you know this, Kim…?…If a certain part of a man’s body happens to
      be injured in an accident or as a result of war, he may join with other worshippers of God in a House of the Lord.

      The Bible says:

      “If a man’s testicles are crushed or his penis is cut off, he may not be included in the assembly of the Lord.”

      Yes, these are words right out of the Bible. Do they upset or embarrass you? Turn to Deuteronomy 23:1-2, New Living Translation. “Oh,” you might say, “one
      of those modern Bibles.” Yes. The King James Version has it this way:

      “He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not
      enter into the congregation of the Lord,” but it means the same thing.

      And the Bible has some startling news for women who take some of those
      self-defense classes that are offered these days. They can find themselves in a
      lot of trouble with some of what they learn in those classes.

      The Bible says:

      “If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.”

      The writers of the Bible had a real thing going on about male genitals, didn’t
      they? Of course, who do you suppose was doing the writing?

      Oh, and they also had some thoughts about children who don’t obey their
      parents. These are probably not thoughts that many mothers would have. Kim, do you know what the Holy Bible has to say about children who don’t obey? Kill

      What? you might say. But according to the Bible, God says to kill them Now you
      might not believe that, but it’s right there, plain as day:

      “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and
      mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and
      mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his

      “They shall say to the elders, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He
      will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of his
      town shall stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you.”

      I guess that would do it, all right…

      So, Kim, you will excuse me if I am not quite totally convinced that all of our
      answers will be found in the Bible…or that everything we find in the Bible
      should be considered the absolute and total Truth, and The Way It Is.

      We cannot “select” only what we want to accept from the Bible, and toss out the rest. This is called Bible Belief Cafeteria Style. Either the Bible is the Absolutely Correct and Inerrant Word of God, or it is not. Maybe it was written by well meaning, but very fallible, human beings. Do you think?

      Love and hugs…Neale.

      The 2nd coming of Christ is about….the proper translation….The 2nd Coming of the Christ Consciousness. That’s Us. In a nutshell. Jesus Came here for a specific purpose as we all do. He did his work here and moved on as we all do. We are supposed to follow his lead and raise the Christ Consciousness in ourselves. And the devil was made up by men..another good story…part history, part herstory :)…sorry wasn’t my idea 🙂 I Love the Goddess!

    • Wendy Quenneville

      Kim, try defining “Fear” as Honoring, Respecting, Appreciating. Especially Appreciating. Your parents or whomever reared you probably put an emphasis on saying your “Please”s and “Thank You”s. God expects the same.

  • Xavier Davalos Salazar

    The only god to aprove or disaprove your acts , actualy iss you……..and your divinity.

    • Wendy Quenneville

      Xavier, you’d be wise to remember that there is no judgement of right vs wrong, there is only free will. You choose what shape your next life will take on, so that
      the Spirit and Mind of God can experience it all.

  • Terri Lynn

    I am so happy to be a part of Humanity’s Team. Thank you, Neale, for your work.

  • Contentttt

    Even God is temporary! Created for many different reasons and existing just because, until it does not!!
    Everything that IS, is for the purpose of exploring the “First thought”, the “First realization”…..”I AM….I EXIST”!
    In the absence of “Everything” there is “No-Thing”!
    I AM….No-Thing…..yet I AM! Why? What If? How would? What is?
    The “Everything” IS the exploration of the questions within the “Nothing”….I AM!! If there was, what might it look like, how would or might it exist, why and what would change and on and on and on and on and on and on out of ONE question, is birthed another question?

    The fixation has shifted from the question to the answer!
    When the answer exists before the question is answered, then the art of asking the question, having been forgotten, and the ability to hear, is replaced with knowing before asking!

    I have been sharing with many for some time now, the answer is not important….it is the question that holds the grandest significance!
    Human’s have forgotten how to ask the questions…..but to an individual…..they sure have the answers!!
    Books after books after books written with a focus on answers! But what is the question(s)?

    So it is with these 25 Core Messages…..they are answers for you….but what is your question???????????????? What is THE question??????????????????

    The little old pot stirrer…….I AM!!

  • chrissie21

    “Parole, parole, parole”….so much inspiration abounds, past and present. Big words, little words, indigestible words, all SORTS of words. In the beginning was the word… Words join the dots of our lives, the gaps in between, embrace and soothe our selves, others, integrate, reconcile, bring us home…at once, to our personal and our collective journey and story of humanity. Wild travellers are we, doing our best, making sense of what we have seen and what is unfolding, what we have experienced and what is yet to be born …so much to learn from each other, so much to give and to receive. What an exciting and beautiful journey we are all on at this time. Thank-you, Neale Donald Walsch for your beautiful leadership and wisdom. I am so happy to be here.

    A more beautiful world is possible and I love the abundance of simplicity. If all creation is re-creation, all that is new, is re-newed. Nothing to overcomplicate. How blessed am I/we? I choose love, over and over…regardless of what is happening. The most important question to ask is… “what would I love”…because if love is the answer, it is also the question. And so I commit to exercising my muscle of self-trust, whenever and wherever I find myself…for I am love and love is all that matters. Enough already! Time for coffee with my lovely mum on this rainy dog. Looking forward to connecting and reconnecting and in the meantime, wishing everyone much love and joy <3

    • Robyn Lockhart

      words words words reminds me of Love love love – love is all there is – thanks to ALL for this wonderful gift we are sharing together as ONE in God

  • Shirley Kingsley

    I have to disagree that there is no absolute truth, though that is cerainly something we haven’t found as yet. There are surely certain principles by which to live on Earth – that only God is capable of creating the Earth; that we are all created to live and enjoy the Earth. Therefore why should only some have access to it while others have to work for these ‘owners’ of its resources in order to live? I would like to share an experience of mine which arrived in the midle of one night some years ago. The word Rights came to mind followed by the following message – Rights of schoolchildren to be educated rather than be kitted out for jobs for rich owners to make a profit out of their slave labour. elaborate.
    Rights of children to be fed, wherever they exist, with food for nutritional value rather than appeasement of hunger or desire to please the palate.
    Rights of cows to be ruminants. Each species to be allowed food for nutrition rather than to fatten for food. elaborate.

    Rights of animals to exist. Rights of children to live.
    I haven’t as yet elaborated, but you never know one day.


      I believe all the RIGHTS you mentioned are ours to enjoy. ALL we simply have to do is choose to do so, If we all chose to enjoy these rights it would happen. Just convince one person a day, get them to really believe this could happen and they will convince one more and soon all these rights would be realized.

      • Shirley Kingsley

        Indeed they are but it’s a pity so few choose them and ‘persuading’ others is no easy task. Geting others to understand the deep meaning behind these wonderful rights is, I believe, part of our task on Earth today but getting people to stop their busyness to look for that peace, harmony and beauty that we all need in our lives is another matter.

    • Robyn Lockhart

      The only absolute I allow is that there are no absolutes


    I know I am God energy here on earth. Here to make it possible for my source to feel and experience energy in feeling form. ALL the different feelings. I am daily making choices to enhance enjoyable feelings. Sometimes my choices don’t seem to enhance or get me where t I want to be but that’s the kicker, to sit back and actually understand WHY they didn’t. Mr. Walsch your book has really helped me understand it’s not that my choices didn’t work right they just worked differently and did produce a needed effect.. Thank you!

    Hmmm, no right or wrong? Really? Try telling that to all the abused children and suppressed people in this world. Ever heard about a person called Hitler?
    And “no absolute truth”? So this whole statement isn’t true either… By the way, wouldn’t you want to hear the absolute truth from your doctor, from the person that handles your money in the bank or from your spouse when you suspect (s)he is cheating on you? Just saying… Seems to me that a whole lot of trouble in this world comes from people thinking that they don’t have to reckon with anyone.

    Because the humanity was built base on a big lie, the lie of the jewish who killed the real Jesus and have hidden the real rules from God, and put another false Jesus to make some mascarede to be the chosen people forever. God exist and I saw him in person. By the way, we are not all the same, people are different. We are not one and we’ll never be.
