4.0 von 5 Sternen How much is of this is God, how much is Walsch's?

CWG Book 1 is an awfully enigmatic book for me if for no other reason than it started me on a journey of questioning which is still ongoing even now after I've come into Catholicism. I've read a fair share of books claiming to be from God from many different perspectives and faith traditions. How do you decide what comes from God and what is coming from human beings?
One of the things that I've learned from CWG is the importance of personal experience in finding truth, and this plays an important role in deciding what is from God and what isn't (this teaching is not exclusive to CWG and in fact it seems to be one of the most obvious truths there is). In understanding fully what counts as truth in personal experience, one has to be very careful about jumping to conclusions, especially in complex matters which require lots of background learning. For instance, it would be a mistake for someone to claim that the theory of evolution is false because I don't see anything evolving this minute. Also, it would be awfully premature to claim that God does not exist because I looked out the window on my space capsule and didn't see his throne hovering around in outer space (i.e. the early Russian cosmonauts argued this)So, I applied the personal experience test to CWG.
To me, the very beginning of the book has the clearest mark of the divine on it as far as content goes. God's exhortation on why the universe was created at all is very intriguing, and I think is very compatible with many Christian beliefs. Also, God's explanation of why God is a Trinity is extremely thought-provoking and should settle well with all but the most hardened fundamentalists. These two things plus some scattered phrases near the beginning I think might be entirely authentic.
However, there are many places that seem to be to in greater or lesser degree human in origin. In particular, the whole thing on why earthquakes and hurricanes happen is laughable. I used to be intrigued by the idea, but now the mere thought that in some Jungian collective consciousness way we alone are responsible for the natural disasters occuring is pure, unadulterated nonsense. This view stands in conflict with my experience of God.
God also seems to be a post-modernist philosopher at times especially when dealing with morality. While I understand the aversion to absolutist modes of moral theory, the idea that good and evil do not objectively exist flies in the face of my experience of God and also does not seem to work metaphysically. Morality can be an awfully complex thing, but it is not totally confined to the realm of subjectivity.
What is the conclusion of all of this? Well, CWG is an awfully interesting book which seems to be, at least in my mind, over 60% authentic in terms of material coming from God. However, how can you explain the other 40%? Remember that this 'conversation' is really dictation:Walsch claimed to be writing and then 'suddenly the pen started moving' and before he knew it God was 'writing back answers.' Dictation is not a booming voice from the sky or an incarnate Deity walking around on earth. Dictation involves a messenger, a filter for the message. And depending on the disposition of the filterer, certain things may be added to the message or left out. Considering then Walsch's past (seems to be a fallen away Catholic, divorced twice, worried about jobs and finances), it does not seem strange that some things in this book are not from God yet others are. The moral of the story is this: God can talk to anyone, but for any of us to 'hear what God has to say' in personal experience best, we must clear ourselves of the filtering and truly open ourselves up to what God has to say.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank, you God..., 24. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
...For Your Conversations with Neale Donald Walsh! You got our attention and we heard Your message loud and clear. This book has become a mini-bible for me with truths and wisdom that I can reach out and grab a hold of and bring it into my daily life. I 'happened' on CWG at an airport bookstore and as I began to read it, my life started moving in a new direction. I took this book everywhere with me until I finished it. I could barely put it down. God explains to us secrets of life, death and the universe in simple terms. This is a most fascinating dialogue. I ordered and read Books 2 and 3 and plan to read them all again many times.

This is what I would call a truly inspirational book - I cried, I laughed, I got angry, frustrated, pessimistic but above all, I felt love. I felt almost every emotion during the couple of days it took me to read 'Conversations with God'. CWG dives straight into issues from sex and drugs to extra terrestrial beings. This book does not say that the Bible or any religion is 'wrong'. It simply takes a very different, 90's perspective on life. The ancient and superstitious concept of sin is done away with. It doesn't make sense that God can give unconditional love and then banish you to hell when you breach the contract! Questions will flood your mind..."Am I just some idiot buying this guy's trash?" and "Yeah right - God speaks and I can fly". But, if God spoke to Moses, why can't he speak to us today? Why are we any different? Aren't we permitted to a serving of divine knowledge and guidance? The fact is that we are so busy with materialistic things that we don't stop to listen. If I can believe (which I do, by the way) that God spoke to Moses, then it would be hypocritical to say that God did not speak to Mr. Walsch. Wouldn't it? So, my conclusion is - READ THIS BOOK. Open your mind...don't resist new ideas, because after all, is it 2000BC or or 2000AD? Even if you absolutely HATE the idea of it - just think...what if it really IS God? You would have missed out on a great opportunity to receive some inside information into life by the man/woman/thing him/her/itself! If you are looking for some alternative answers order it now. I promise it will change the way you feel forever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What's in a Title ?, 10. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I don't care if Neale Walsch named this book "My Own Opinion". I bought this book because I heard the name over and over for months and I saw the changes in people who had read it.
If God is in all of us, which I believe he is, and God speaks to all of us on our own terms, which I believe he does....then yes, this book is a conversation between God and Neale.
It is a shame that people who rate this book a 1 or 2 follow with " I only got to page 40 or chapter 6." As for my re-view....God or blasphemy, spirituality or religious, 10 commandments or no ten commandments; I choose to take what I need and leave the rest.
I did question some points but the reason I did was because as Neale puts it "This goes against everything I have been taught. It doesn't stand up to the facts." WHO'S FACTS? WRONG ACCORDING TO WHOM ? HMMM, makes you think doesn't it?
There is no book on earth, including the bible, that people won't "pick apart". They see one sentence, idea, or paragraph and make a conclusion about the whole book.
The whole basis of the book is to get people to THINK for THEMSELVES not take Neales word for it.
We are all "called" for different reasons. Find your "strong point" or your "weak point" for that matter, in this book and make a change for you. After all, isn't that what we're all trying to do...find our place in this mess we call our world. Why people fight to keep things the same is beyond me. Take what you need and leave the rest and above all EXPECT A MIRACLE.

5.0 von 5 Sternen There's No Such Thing As Coincidence, 29. Juli 2000
Von 
Andrew P. Musgrave (Taipei, Taiwan) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
There's something I'd like to share with you. I've just finished the most extraordinary book I've ever read, so extraordinary in fact that it has made a profound impact on the way I view humanity's relationship with our Creator. I've not before read such a moving, compassionate, coherent piece of writing, and believe that this book deserves to be read regardless of your particular religious beliefs and experiences. I'd picked this book up on a number of occasions while in Australia and had put it down again, convinced it was nothing more than yet another piece of new age mumbo jumbo. Last week at work I found a copy of this book on my desk, and now believe, in spite of my previous arguments to the contrary, that God does reach into people's lives. If you are searching for straight forward answers to some of life's most difficult questions, then Conversations With God (Book 1) may be the book for you.

1.0 von 5 Sternen MADE YOU LOOK !, 2. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Thanks to those with the clever idea of using the one star rating to attract review readers. I have read books 1 and 2. The experience has changed my life to say the least, so my "real" rating would be 5 stars. I had spent many years wondering why god had made us all so different, yet the "rules" were so general. The information god gives to Neale makes perfect sense to me, and has removed ALL elements of confusion from my life. Is it just a scam? Have I been "duped" by some new-age marketing genius? Is Neale simply crazy? Who knows, and WHO CARES?! If CWG is evil, blasphemous trash, then I relate well to evil, blasphemous trash! If you're reading any of these reviews and haven't read the book(s) yet, it's probably your time to discover them. I'm sure that you'll either feel thrilled, disgusted, or something in between.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Good ideas wrongly expressed, 12. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Those ideas expressed in the book might have some validity, but are expressed in a wrong way. If the author really meant to have talked with God, he needs some professional help, I guess. But I think the author is trying to sell his atheist philosophy to those Christian believers. If that's the case, he might deserve a higher ranking. What his book shows is that God wants us to believe that He does not exist and we humans create Him. Actually I am reading another book, in which the author claims "Gods 'R Us". He is a very good story teller, and also very good at convincing us that we are ourselves gods. He claims that through Virtual Reality and teleoperation, we humans can re-create the whole universe, which he calls "new genesis". A very enlightenning book in deed. Title: "Get Real: A Philosophical Adventure in Virtual Reality".

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Contemplation About "Conversations.", 2. Mai 2000
This is a masterpiece in modern thinking! As I listened to this book I finally realized that I was not the only person who found the little faults in human thinking and behavior, organized religion and government. The philosophies put forth in this book reflect exactly the philosophies of the common person but with one difference...the common person can feel it and act upon it but Mr. Walsch puts it into words for the first time. I have recommended this book time and time again to others and every time I get the same response...I thought I was the only one! I recommend this book highly to anyone who has an interest in living a correct life and has questions that you instinctivly know the answer to but want some kind of confirmation. Good reading!

1.0 von 5 Sternen I talked to God, Neale, and she didn't mention you., 8. Juli 1998
Okay, now that I have your attention...I am sure that Walsch believes that he was talking with God. I have no problem with that at all. Like someone else in this review list, I gave it one star so that my review would be read. Truly, I would give it four.
People have problems with the arrogance, the declaration of truth, etc. in the book. I don't. In fact, I think all of it makes a lot of sense. It all touched upon things that I would come up with myself, given time. I'm just not a divorced person in my forties yet. I wonder how Walsch's exwife feels about the books? In any event, Walsch helped me find my way to the path of enlightenment, and for that, I am grateful. May others join us in love and peace.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Retrospective Look At CWG, 18. Juni 2000
A long while back (maybe three years ago), I bought this book and it revolutionized my life. I have read it at least a dozen times over and have bought a copy for so many people its hard for me to remember just how many. I came back and read through some of the reviews that have been made...and now its time for a retrospective.
Of all the books on spirituality I have read over many years, this is the MOST important work I have ever read. Of course God is going to write a book that is controversial...and from talking in news groups, chat rooms, directly to people and everywhere else about this book, it has caused a tremendous stir. Now why is that?
It's because this book challenges conventional religious doctrine. Especially Christianity. Those who are fundamentalists will see little value in this book because it contradicts what they have been taught. In Conversations (CWG), it's mentioned there..."You would rather listen to THEM rather then to ME." This was God's complaint about giving Isreal a king as well.
If you really ponder and think about what is said in this book, you will eventually come to the conclusion I believe, that God's wisdom is perfect and untainted by man's thinking...which is what this book is about. Instead of speaking lof LIMITATION, this book speaks of our limitlessness. Instead of speaking about CONDITIONAL love such as "you have to accept Jesus as your savior" or go to hell...it speaks of a greater God, a God who is UNCONDITIONAL. Instead of preaching about our separateness from divinity, it speaks about our inalienable ONENESS to God and the fact that we are ALL tied together by a unique thread. These are not limitations as religious dogma insists upon, these are ideas of spiritual freedom, unhindered by the typical threats of damnation, judgement and self-abasement necessitated by religion. This is the kind of relationship we need to have with God...not one of FEAR but one of LOVE.
This book establishes the true relationship of US and God, that we are ONE and not separate. For it is only through separation that we are grounded in fear and believe in the limitation of self. Through separation, we can justify our doubts, revoke our absolute responsibilities for what happens to us in life, separate ourselves from our doings, thoughts and speach. We can create the situations and the deeds and then divorce ourselves from the consequences. When we believe in separation we think as judgers, claiming the "rightness" of our judgments of right and wrong...only when we give up separation do we see what Jesus said when he asserted "Judge not unless ye be judged" and "love they neighbor as theyself." Only in ONENESS can we really understand why Jesus said..."whatsoever you do to the least of these you do to me."
I think God always speaks to us in the context of what we can understand and comprehend. So if Neale had been a Buddhist, the way this book was presented might have had a Buddhist slant and if he had been Muslim...it would have had that flavor too. But no matter what religion Neale comes from, I think the principles would remain the same. Of course many Christian's are going to feel victimized, that is how they have been taught to think...like being a victim if their beliefs are challenged.
It is just this kind of challenging we NEED to have. That is why the book was written. Because religion does not serve man's highest needs. In fact, when we read this book and PRACTICE what it says, we find we no longer have a need to have anything in between us (like a dogma, doctrine, theology or church structure) and God. That is the most liberating freedom that can be had...freedom from orthodoxical control mechanisms. In a world groping for even the tiniest bit of TRUTH, here we have a whole book full of it.
I am firmly behind this book because I have practiced its contents and have been liberated from the control mechanisms that historical man-made concepts and constructs have created for us. How long will we continue to preach the goodness that is supposed to be God, yet fear God as the condemer and judger, seeing God doing the things WE do as humans? That is the mistake that has been repeated over and over again by our learned church leaders and theologians throughout time...they have created a monstrosity out of simplicity, adorned it with the tapestry and doings of ritual, limited us when we are unlimited, threatened our existence when there is no limit...no limit, no judgement, no condemnation, no conditions...THIS IS the essence of a God so great that he becomes the greatness that we should expect of our Creator! Anything less is not the God of Who IS, but of a lesser god of whom we have created for the benefit of our own power and out of our own greed to control.
This book is LIBERATION of the mind and soul. It is better than the Bible, because it cuts through to where we are at as we know ourselves to be from Spirit...that we are all GOOD at heart and at ONE with God.
