Will you help us write it?

We believe that it is humanity’s cultural story that is causing humanity’s cultural crisis. We are inviting you, here in this space, to engage in a conversation (we call it The Conversation of the Century) about what kind of new story we could be telling our children, and each other, about life on Earth in every one of its expressions.

This invitation was sent to humanity in the book The Storm Before the Calm, the first entry in the Conversations with Humanity Series by Neale Donald Walsch. The book is being published one chapter at a time on this site.

Choose any category of life expression you wish, headline the category you have chosen, and write the Humanity’s New Story about that particular area of life, co-authoring with us here on this website.


We hope that people from around the world will offer here their heartfelt thoughts about what our New Human Cultural Story might say, and how we might articulate it. Please limit each item to a single topic, and please sign your name, so that we know who wrote the entry. (We want to give credit where credit is due, and to encourage as many people as possible to contribute to this Co-Authorship.)


We do not see this as a place for endless argumentation. We see it as a Gathering of Ideas, not a Back-and-Forth Debate. Statements of opinion about the entries are surely welcome, but ongoing and never-ending wrangling hoping to make a particular point will, we believe, only serve to inhibit the process of gathering as many ideas as possible. Our suggestion, then: Let this be a Brainstorming Session about what could be our Most Wonderful Tomorrow, where the general rule is: Every idea is welcome, and no one will be judged for their contribution.

Periodically we will begin a new Idea String, to keep the scrolling necessary to read current entries to a minimum. Of course, all previous entries will always be available in this website’s archive.

We have started a new Idea String below, exploring the topic of Transparency, as discussed on multiple occasions in Conversations with God.

Thanks for making your input here. The best of the proposals for Humanity’s New Cultural Story, as judged by our readers at the end of 2013, will be placed before the world’s leaders in politics, economics, business & commerce, education, environment, and spirituality in a special publication to be widely distributed in the months that follow. So your contribution is important — and could help change the world.

Please make your entries below…and return often.
