An Open Letter to Our World:

Never underestimate the power of an idea

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about a question that doesn’t seem to want to leave my mind: What would it take for the people of the world to simply get along?

Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to expect from an “enlightened” species?

Wait a minute. Forget about “getting along.” What (if anything) could cause a species of sentient beings who could not “get along” to just stop killing each other? What (if anything) could convince us that…

"I talk to everyone all the time. The question is not to whom does God talk. The question is, who listens?"

Early in Conversations with God-Book One we are told that God communicates with us most often through feeling. Feeling is the language of the soul.

"If you want to know what’s true for you about something," God said, "look to how you’re feeling about it. Feelings are sometimes difficult to discover, and often even more difficult to acknowledge. Yet hidden in your deepest feelings is your highest truth."
