Inspiring Quotes From Conversations With God

Inspiring Quotes From Conversations With God

I had been hearing about the book(s) Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch for years before I felt inspired to read them. At that point, I was ready to receive the information with an open mind and an open heart, and once I started reading I couldn’t put them down. These books uplifted and inspired me with its multitude of extraordinary wisdom that provides insight into every single area of life.

Conversations With God was originally published as three separate books (published in 1996, 1997 and 1998, respectively.), and then put together into one book, known as The Complete Conversations with God in 2005.

For those of you not yet familiar with Neale Donald Walsch, in the early 1990s he was at the lowest time in his life. He lived as a homeless person for about a year. He lost his family, his job and even had a car accident that left him seriously hurt.

It was then that Neale got really angry and decided to write a letter to God to vent his frustrations. He wanted to know why nothing seemed to go right in his life and why he was experiencing one struggle after another. To his surprise, God responded.

After he finished his letter, he was moved to continue writing and received extraordinary answers to his questions. What came out of this over an 11 year period was a set of 9 books that Neale wrote as “Conversations With God.” This work helped him to change himself, his life and the way he viewed the world and other beings.

The complete conversations cover anything and everything from the following topics:

  • Who is God?
  • What is the Purpose of God?
  • What is the Purpose of Life?
  • How to Understand Our Role in Life
  • How to Understand Free Will
  • How to Understand Emotions
  • Money, Finances and the Economy
  • Significance of Religions
  • Significance of Relationships – Romantic and Family
  • Politics and the Role of Governments
  • The Environment
  • Health and the Purpose of Disease
  • The Significance of Time
  • Birth, Death and the Afterlife
  • and so much more!

I hope you will take time to read, and savor, the following quotes from the first three books of Conversations With God. Or even better, get the books and read them for yourself! They are insightful, educational and even entertaining (God has a sense of humor).


Book One

“You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it. You are creating your reality every minute, probably without knowing it.”

“You are three beings in one. You can call theses three aspects of being anything you want: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; mind, body and spirit; super-conscious, conscious, subconscious… Creation is a process that proceeds from these three parts of your body. Put another way, you create at three levels. The tools of creation are: thought, word, and deed.”

“If there is some aspect of creation you find you do not enjoy, bless it and simply change it. Choose again. Call forth a new reality.”

“Think about what you want to be, do, and have. Think about it often until you are very clear about this. Then, when you are very clear, think about nothing else. Imagine no other possibilities.”

“’I am’ is the strongest creative statement in the universe. Whatever you think, whatever you say, after the words ‘I am’ sets into motion those experiences, calls them forth, brings them to you..The universe responds to ‘I am’ as would a genie in a bottle.”

“Relationships are constantly challenging; constantly calling you to create, express, and experience higher and higher aspects of yourself, grander and grander visions of yourself, ever more magnificent versions of yourself. Nowhere can you do this more immediately, impactfully, and immaculately than in relationships. In fact, without relationships, you cannot do it at all.”

“The purpose of a relationship is to decide what part of yourself you’d like to see ‘show up,’ not what part of another you can capture and hold.”

“There can be only one purpose for relationships – and for all of life: to be and to decide Who You Really Are.”

“It is very romantic to say that now that your special other has entered your life, you feel complete. Yet the purpose of relationship is not to have another who might complete you; but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.”

“Your first relationship…must be with your Self. You must first learn to honor and cherish and love your Self.”

“You must honor your feelings. For honoring your feelings means honoring your Self.”

“Often you do not remember Who You Are, and do not know Who You Want to Be until you try out a few ways of being. That is why honoring your truest feelings is so important.”

“Yes, the things that others think, say, or do will sometimes hurt you – until they do not anymore. What will get you from here to there most quickly is total honesty – being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing. Say your truth – kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings you new clarity.”

“You have no obligation in relationship. You have only opportunity.”

“Never do anything in relationship out of a sense of obligation. Do whatever you do out of a sense of the glorious opportunity your relationship affords you to decide, and to be, Who You Really Are.”

“…your job on the planet is not to see how long you can stay in relationship, it’s to decide, and experience, who You Really Are.”

“If you both agree at a conscious level that the purpose of your relationship is to create an opportunity, not an obligation – an opportunity for growth, for full Self expression, for lifting your lives to their highest potential, for healing every false thought or small idea you ever had about you, and for the ultimate reunion with God through the communion of your two souls – if you take that vow instead of the vows you’ve been taking – the relationship has begun on a very good note. It’s gotten off on the right foot. That’s a very good beginning.”

“The word ‘I’ is the key that starts the engine of creation. The words ‘I am’ are extremely powerful. They are statements to the universe. Commands.”

“The best so-called affirmation is a statement of gratitude and appreciation. ‘Thank you, God, for bringing me success in my life.’ Now, that idea, thought, spoken, and acted upon, produces wonderful results – when it comes to true knowing; not from an attempt to produce results, but from an awareness that results have already been produced.”

“If, now, there is something you choose to experience in your life, do not ‘want it’ – choose it.”

“Your life work is a statement of Who You Are. If it is not, then why are you doing it?”

“The soul conceives, the mind creates, the body experiences. The circle is complete. The soul then knows itself in its own experience. If it does not like what it is experiencing (feeling), or wishes or wishes a different experience for any reason, it simply conceives of a new experience of Self, and, quite literally, changes its mind.”

“God is more than you can imagine. God is the energy you call imagination. God is creation. God is first thought. And God is last experience. And God is everything in between.”

“Play with sex. Play with it! It’s wonderful fun. Why, it’s just about the most fun you can have with your body, if you’re talking of strictly physical experiences alone.”

“There is not a person who does not have what you call psychic ability, there are only people who do not use it…Using psychic ability is nothing more than using your sixth sense.”

Book Two

“You are creating your reality every minute. The decision you make today is often not the choice you make tomorrow. Yet here is a secret of all Masters: keep choosing the same thing…Over and over until your will is made manifest in your reality. For some that could take years. For some, months. For others, weeks. For those approaching mastery, days, hours, or even minutes. For Masters, creation is instantaneous.”

“You can tell you are on your way to mastery when you see the gap closing between Willing and Experiencing.”

“Change your mind all you want. Yet remember that with each change of mind comes a change in the direction of the whole universe.”

“When you ‘make up your mind’ about something, you set the universe into motion. Forces beyond your ability to comprehend – far more subtle and complex than you could imagine – are engaged in a process, the intricate dynamics of which you are only just now beginning to understand.”

“If you choose something, choose it with all your might, with all your heart. Don’t be faint-hearted. Keep going! Keep moving toward it. Be determined.”

“I [God] don’t give you anything – you call it forth.”

“The moment you say “I want” something, the universe says “Indeed you do” and gives you that precise experience – the experience of ‘wanting’ it!”

“Whatever you put after the word “I” becomes your creative command. The genie in the bottel – which I Am – exists but to obey.”

“I [God] produce what you call forth! You call forth precisely what you think, feel, and say. It’s as simple as that.”

“A life lived by choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived by chance is a life of unconscious reaction.”

“If you spend your time trying to figure out what’s “best” for you, your choices will be cautious, your decisions will take forever, and your journey will be launched on a sea of expectations.”

“Stop trying to figure out what is “best” for you (how you can win the most, lose the least, get what you want) and start going with what feels like Who You Are.”

“The soul speaks to you in feelings. Listen to your feelings. Follow your feelings. Honor your feelings.”

“Feelings are the language of the soul.”

“When you express your truth with love, negative and damaging results rarely occur, and, when they do, it is usually because someone else has chosen to experience your truth in a negative or damaging way. In such a case, there is probably nothing you can do to avoid the outcome.”

“You cannot take responsibility for how well another accepts your truth; you can only ensure how well it is communicated. And by how well, I don’t mean merely how clearly; I mean how lovingly, how compassionately, how sensitively, how courageously, and how completely.”

“Failure to express (i.e. push out) negative feelings does not make them go away; it keeps them in. Negativity “kept in” harms the body and burdens the soul.”

“Life is a process of creation, and you keep living it as if it were a process of re-enactment!”

“Each of you has understood Me – created Me – in your own way. To some of you I am a man. To some of you I am a woman. To some, I am both. To some, I am neither. To some of you I am pure energy. To some, the ultimate feeling, which you call love. And some of you have no idea what I am. You simply know what I AM. And so it is. I AM.”

“No one comes to you by accident. There is no such thing as coincidence. Nothing occurs at random. Life is not a product of chance. Events, like people, are drawn to you, by you, for your own purposes. Larger planetary experiences and developments are the result of group consciousness.”

“If you are in a group whose consciousness does not reflect your own, and you are unable at this time to effectively alter the group consciousness, it is wise to leave the group, or the group could lead you. It will go where it wants to go, regardless of where you want to go.”

“If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be draw to you.”

“Your world, and the condition it is in, is a reflection of the total, combined consciousness of everyone living there.”

“You have drawn the people, events, and circumstances of your life to you as tools with which to fashion the Grandest Version of the Greatest Vision you ever had about yourself.”

Decide Who You Are – Who you want to be – and then do everything in your power to be that.”

“…love, love, love the things you desire – for your love of them draws them to you. These things are the stuff of life. When you love them, you love life!”

”Give yourself abundant pleasure, and you will have abundant pleasure to give others.”

“Feeling good” is the soul’s way of shouting “This is who I am!”

“Religion would have you take its word for it. That is why all religions ultimately fail… Spirituality, on the other hand, will always succeed…. Religion asks you to learn from the experience of others. Spirituality urges you to seek your own… Religion cannot stand Spirituality. It cannot abide it. For Spirituality may bring you to a different conclusion than a particular religion – and this no known religion can tolerate… Religion encourages you to explore the thoughts of others and accept them as your own. Spirituality invites you to toss away the thoughts of others and come up with your own.”

“Feeling good” is your way of telling yourself that your last thought was truth, that your last word was wisdom, that your last action was love.”

“To notice how far you have progressed, to measure how highly you have evolved, simply look to see what makes you “feel good.”

“If acting irresponsibly, if behaving in a way which you know might damage others or cause hardship or pain, is what makes you “feel good,” then you have not evolved very far.”

“How may we best express this thing called sexual energy?… Lovingly. Openly. Playfully. Joyfully. Outrageously. Passionately. Sacredly. Romantically. Humorously. Spontaneously. Touchingly. Creatively. Unabashedly. Sensually. And of course, Frequently.”

“Sexual expression is the inevitable result of an eternal process of attraction and rhythmic energy flow which fuels all of life.”

“Everyone and everything on the planet – and in the universe – is emitting energy in every direction. This energy mixes with all other energies, criss-crossing in patterns of complexity beyond the ability of your most powerful computers to analyze. The criss-crossing, intermingling, intertwining energies racing between everything that you can call physical is what holds physicality together.”

“Thoughts do create physical form – and when many people are thinking the same thing, there is a very high likelihood their thoughts will form a Reality.”

“Putting yourself first does not mean being what you term “selfish” – it means being self aware.”

“It is only through the exercise of the greatest freedom that the greatest growth is achieved – or even possible. If all you are doing is following someone else’s rules, then you have not grown, you have obeyed. Contrary to your constructions, obedience is not what I want from you. Obedience is not growth, and growth is what I desire.”

“Sometimes the best way to love someone, and the most help you can give, is to leave them alone or empower them to help themselves.”

“When is it disempowering to offer help? When does it work against, rather than for, another’s growth?…When your help is offered in such a way that it creates continued dependence, rather than rapid independence. When you allow another, in the name of compassion, to begin to rely on you rather than rely on themselves. That is not compassion, that is compulsion.”

Book Three

“So long as you are still worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them. Only when you require no approval from outside yourself can you own yourself.”

“Guilt and fear are the only enemies of man.”

“There is no such thing as “wrong.” There is only that which does not serve you; does not speak the truth about Who You Are, and Who You Choose to Be.”

“Guilt is the feeling that keeps you stuck in who you are not…Guilt is a blight upon the land – the poison that kills the plant… You will not grow through guilt, but only shrivel and die.”

“Fear and caution are two different things. Be cautious – be conscious – but do not be fearful. For fear only paralyzes, while consciousness mobilizes. Be mobilized, not paralyzed.”

“The biggest mistake people make in human relationships is to be concerned for what the other is wanting, being, doing, or having. Be concerned only for the Self. What is the Self being, doing, or having? What is the Self wanting, needing, choosing? What is the highest choice for the Self?”

“Nothing can happen – I say to you, nothing can occur – in your life which is not a precisely perfect opportunity for you to heal something, create something, or experience something that you wish to heal, create, or experience in order to be Who You Really Are.”

“If all you desired is what your soul desired, everything would be very simple. If you listened to the part of you which is pure spirit, all of your decisions would be easy, and all the outcomes joyous. That is because…the choices of spirit are always the highest choices. They don’t need to be second-guessed. They don’t need to be analyzed or evaluated. They simply need to be followed, acted on.”

“The very act of your desiring something is the act of Me desiring something, since you are simply Me, acting out the experience called desire. Therefore, what you desire, I desire.”

“Believing that you cannot have something is the same thing as not desiring to have it, for it produces the same result.”

“I thought we fell asleep because the body needed rest… You are mistaken. It is the other way around. The soul seeks the rest, and so, causes the body to “fall asleep.” The soul literally drops the body (sometimes right where it is standing) when it is tired of the limits, tired of the heaviness and lack of freedom of being with the body. It will just leave the body when it seeks :refueling”; when it becomes weary of all the nontruth and false reality and imagined dangers, and when it seeks, once again, reconnection, reassurance, restfulness, and reawakening for the mind.”

“Love is that which is unlimited. There is no beginning and no end to it. No before and no after. Love always was, always is, and always will be.”

“There is only one sacred promise – and that is to tell and live your truth. All other promises are forfeitures of freedom, and that can never be sacred. For freedom is Who You Are. If you forfeit freedom, you forfeit your Self. And that is not a sacrament, that is blasphemy.”

“Betrayal of yourself in order not to betray another is betrayal nonetheless. It is the highest betrayal.”

“Every act is an act of self-definition. Everything you think, say, and do declares, “This is Who I Am.”

“Ultimately, all real communication is about truth. And ultimately, the only real truth is love. That is why, when love is present, so is communication. And when communication is difficult, it is a sign that love is not fully present.”

“You not only interpret energy, you create it. Imagination is a function of your mind, which is one-third of your three-part being [mind, body, soul]. In your mind you image something, and it begins to take physical form. The longer you image it (and the more OF you who image it), the more physical that form becomes, until the increasing energy you have given it literally bursts into light, flashing an image of itself into what you call your reality.”

“In the physical life there might be a lapse between thought and experience. In the spirit’s realm there is no lapse; results are instantaneous.”
