Neal Donald Walsch’s Conversations with God Book 1 focuses on the everyday individual challenges that we have in life. It shows or describes how we can view life from a different perspective, and really be happy with ourselves. In the book, Neal feels that he is having a conversation directly with God. Neal asks God a lot of tough questions about everyday life. The questions that he puts forth to God are ones that we don’t typically get answered by anyone in our daily lives. You may find this book fascinating because it fills in the gaps left by a lot of our traditional religious belief systems. He offers us a fresh perspective of life without the restrictions placed on us by the society and belief systems that have structured our thinking along a thin path.
What can you expect to get out of this book? This all depends on how open you are to reading about new ideas about life here on planet earth. If you approach this book only from a perspective of protecting your present belief system, then you probably won’t appreciate the content of what is discussed because you are not really open to any new ideas. If you are open to new thoughts and possibilities, you will find this easy-to-read book complete of ideas about life that seem so obvious. The book gives you a fresh way to approach life, and lets you feel that you really do have a say in your own destiny.
This book places a lot of emphasis on one’s personal relationship with God. Life shouldn’t be directed from a dark ages viewpoint that doesn’t allow us to think for ourselves. Neal brings forth in the book an attitude that encourages us to become individual thinkers who are free to question, and then to interpret life from our own viewpoints.
The ideas presented in this book will assist you in your everyday life by giving you a fresh outlook. Who says that you cannot talk to God in your own way? I found this book very enlightening and very inspirational. Neal may not really be talking to God directly, it may be his subconscious self giving the answers, or the answers may be coming from one of his guides. It doesn’t really matter where the inspiration is coming from, the question is, does it make sense? If it makes sense to you, then you may find that this book can be an opening to another way of looking at life. If you are looking for new ideas for your personal path of spiritual development, this book gives good insight as to where you presently are in life. When life is viewed from a fresh perspective, changes in your life begin to happen. Taking the same path, day after day, only leads to the same destination. If you want change in your life, then take another path (or approach) in life.
I feel that this book is written for all of those people who need a fresh look at life. Haven’t we all heard the same story about how life is supposed to be? The things that we have been taught by the societies we live in don’t always make sense. Those ideas may leave us with a feeling of running in circles without ever getting the real answers to our questions. This book gives you a great big WOW, and you get the feeling that the right answers have been given, and are now obtainable to you.
This book is not about religion or the Bible. Keep an open mind while reading it, and don’t estimate where the ideas are coming from, just listen to the ideas. Everyone can gain insights from this book. Most great truths in life can usually be explained in simple terms. We, as human beings can at times make life more complicate than it really was meant to be. Enjoy your time with Neal and his shared insights.
