Mental Health and Violence
Chris and Neale begin their conversation by touching on the topic of gun control in America after a spate of mass shootings. They talk about how we’ve created a culture so focused on violence, and the severely limited amount of mental health services available right now.
“Who really are we as a species, and what is the underlying value that drives the engine of our experience? Is it going to be compassion and love? Or is it going to be anger and hatred?” – Neale Donald Walsch

The Essential Path (15:00)
The conversation turns to Neale’s latest book, The Essential Path. Neale explores how the biggest problem facing humanity today is the belief that we are separate from everything and everybody else. But we’re all interconnected – individuals, but not separate.
“What if all of us were simply fingers on the hand of God?” – Neale Donald Walsch
A Sense of Interconnectedness (29:08)
Chris reads more from Neale’s book. They talk about how everyone experiences this sense of interconnectedness directly, but often refuse to admit it. Neale ends the show with a discussion of the characteristics of highly evolved beings.
“Highly evolved beings are clear about the unity of all of life, and humans living in an unawakened state often ignore that truth completely.” – Neale Donald Walsch
