How May I Serve You?
In this episode of New Growth, Nikki Walton welcomes New York Times bestselling author and spiritual messenger, Neale Donald Walsch, to the podcast. In humble and loving fashion, he answers her greeting with a selfless, Ram Dass-harkening, offering of service, “How may I serve you?” From here, Nikki explains the important catalyst Neale’s Conversations with God proved for shifting her relationship with her thoughts, experience of the present moment, and reclamation of her relationship with God.
“I invite people not to sit down to have a meditation in which you hope to hear a particular message from the Divine, but rather to have a meditation that just opens you to the space, to the nothing, to where you’re not thinking of anything, anticipating anything, requiring anything, asking for anything; but just allowing yourself to be there for whatever life offers you in that moment.” – Neale Donald Walsch

Opening, Earnest Asking, & Listening (8:25)
Invited by Nikki, Neale shares that his opening happened when everything fell apart. Within a short time span, he lost his job, wife, and broke his neck. In this dark night of the soul, Neale angrily vented, scribbling down a message to God asking about suffering and the nature of the universe. In that earnest call, Neale describes that he heard a deep, intuitive response from a wise, primordial force. In opening a dialogue with his higher self, Neale discovered we all share this place of wisdom and clarity within us.
“I began writing those angry questions, and I heard answers in my mind, so I wrote down the answers. The answers brought up other questions. Then, I’d get another answer, and before I knew it I was caught up in an on paper conversation with God—a dialogue with my highest inner-self, the place of wisdom and clarity that resides within all of us.” – Neale Donald Walsch

The God Solution: Pure Love (17:23)
Outlining the intentionality behind his new book, The God Solution, Neale shares that so many of our knots about reality, the universe, and God come from defining God as some powerful being commanding and expecting. In the ensuing dialogue, he invites the human species to redefine God as Pure Love. Through recognizing and living from this indwelling unconditionality—which needs, commands, demands, and expects nothing in return—is the catalytic potential to evolve the world socially, politically, and spiritually.
“How can I experience that love in me, as me? The answer is to let it flow through me to every other aspect of life, whether it is in fact a tree, a spider, or another human being.” – Neale Donald Walsch
