Being Who We Are

“God”: “Everything that occurs—everything that has occurred, is occurring, or ever will occur—is the outward physical manifestation of your innermost thoughts, choices, ideas, and determinations regarding Who You Are and Who You Choose to Be.  Condemn not, therefore, those aspects of life with which you disagree.  Seek instead to change them, and the conditions that make them possible.”  Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, Book 3

In Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch seeks to carry on a dialogue with the Almighty.  I think he is reaching deep within to where God resides, drawing from mind and heart a radical new story about who and what we are.

In this quotation, we hear a oft-repeated theme from the Conversations about the need to be “who we are,” or “who we really are.”  We are creating ourselves anew in every moment, often from our most innermost thoughts about our very being.  Not all of this is conscious; much is subconscious.  But we are nevertheless manifesting our lives in this way.

If we don’t like what we see, we can change much of it, and maybe all of it.  It is never wise to condemn what we see, for we have drawn this reality to ourselves.
