Loved Book 1, really believed that Mr. Walsch had that "conversation" with God, because many of his points and explanations for things unseen made perfect sense as "God" explained them. However, Book 2 is a little hard to swallow. God recommends a particular private school as the best one for our kids? God quotes government statistics to argue His points? Trust me, I really want to believe that a conversation with God is possible, but I found myself rolling my eyes and shaking my head far too much while listening to Book 2. There is a Book 3 but I am reluctant to buy it after listening to Book 2. Book 2 took away much of the hope and enlightenment I felt after listening to Book 1 and replaced it with more of the same old skepticism and doubt.

If Neale reads this, maybe he can find out why our forgetfulness is key? This was mentioned but not expanded upon as promised. I would sure like to be able to retain all skills and knowledge that we have learned but forgotten not only in this life but previous ones. It sure seems a shame to waste 20-30 years of every life to learn new skills and relearn old ones. It was consistently stated that our forgetfulness is key to the plan, and that we aren't here to learn, yet with our often failing memories we must learn and relearn. It was said that we are here to remember, and that we know all, future, past events and knowledge of everything. Maybe this is what is gained through meditation, but it doesn't allow one to necessarily practice medicine. It would be great to say I know all about any subject and it be true and socially accepted. It would have been more credible had Neale not mentioned "The Course in Miracles", as the subject matter is very similar. We are constantly evolving spiritually and mentally as a human race: This series seems similar to the difference theologically speaking between democracy and tribal headhunters. Looking back with 20 /20 vision we may say later, how did we ever have such a narrow mind on theology to assume that God is limited to our mental constructs. 400 years ago we thought we could fall off the edge of the earth. I'm in favor of widened beliefs. One thing has me puzzled. If we exist in all moments seperately, how does our consciousness seem so serially connected? What is the miniscule moment of time or awareness that each seperate one of us endures? When time seems to stand still, maybe it's because this moment is experienced by many of our imagined identities and held in awe by each.
