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.

The sense, integrity and truth emanates from every page. Book 3, as with the other two books, is a book that speaks, promotes and endorses unconditional love in a world full of human made conditions. For many years I was a child of a lesser god, but after reading the conversations trilogy, I have been able to dispel the outdated prejudices, bigotry and hatred (the fears) of ancient rhetoric from my life. I find it hard to express how much happier, content and fulfilled I feel since I have adopted the teaching from these books. They have answered all my questions about life and the universe and our relationship to everything including our purpose for existing. My vision about everything has changed dramatically for the better.
Some people may disbelieve that these books are a true conversation with God. But even if they are only the religious concepts and philosophical thoughts of a human mind expressed on paper, then they are wonderful thoughts with as much backbone as you could wish to experience.
I do recommend that you start with book 1 and listen your way through them objectively. When I first listened to them I felt overwhelmed. It?s not easy to let go of the negative religious indoctrinations that have been brainwashed into us over the decades of our life. In fact, letting go of some parts has been painful, but if you are yearning for a spiritual awakening, then you need look no further.

I found myself through the 3 books, after listening to the trilogy I then play random chapters at completely random. As a dj I listen to a lot of music so the tones of the readers is a big thing for me, the book is beautifully presented with both a male and female speaking the words of God, this has been amazing as I was able to picture a mother and father figure speaking to me, and conversing with me. This has been very helpful in helping me better communicate with my mum who is a devout Muslim, I have been able to converse with her about God and not religion. I short these books have changed my life and I am forever gteaful.
