The Book that Changed Everything- Farhana Dhalla


You-Are-Perfect-QuoteWe all have a ‘breakthrough book'. The book that shifted the way we saweverything... the way we saw ourselves.

Mine was Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch.

A few years ago when my marriage came to an abrupt end, I was able to stand in the crumbling of everything around me because I knew who I was.

I was able to be in the debris and claim bold visions about becoming the grandest expression of myself that I had ever known.

I could do that because the year before I had read the Conversations with God trilogy and nothing was the same for me after that.

Thank goodness.

People everywhere revere this work as that of the messiah. With over 15 million books sold and the amount of hands that each book would pass as people share these treasures makes the reach truly incalculable.

One fellow asked me if I thought Neale was a prophet equal to that of Jesus or Mohammed. He certainly has more followers than any of those did during their time he commented.

Hmm… interesting…

What I know is this…

If Neale heard that, he would cringe.

He would want us to heed the message, not the messenger.

I observed the tendency of people (including my own) who want to put him on a pedestal and when I attended one of his retreats, I observed his artful climb down over and over again.

Neale’s quick wit ensured levity and relaxation… not only in our relationship to him, but in our relationship to the material and most importantly, in our individual relationship with the God of our own understanding.

In refusing to take the pedestal, he does what true spiritual masters do; they remind us of our own divine nature and help unlock our mastery. All the while reminding us that:

You are perfect. No more or less than the next person.
You are deserving. No more or less than the next person.
You are worthy. No more or less than the next person.

These basic truths are sometimes hard for us to really believe.

Remember that TV show from years ago called Touched by an Angel? I remember hearing that it was the most popular show in prison. When it aired you could hear a pin drop from the inmates silence.

I remember wondering why and then I realized, that show offered redemption. In every episode the truth was revealed.

God loves you. As you are.

Guess what one of the most popular books in prison is? Yep, you guessed it, Conversations with God.

It too offers the truth: God loves you. As you are.

And if offers something else:

There is nothing to forgive.
Nothing ‘wrong’ has ever been done.


I know it’s a biggie to take in but play along will ya?

Imagine for a moment that there are no victims and there are no villains.

What happens when you do that?

Suddenly everything opens up doesn't it? And in that space, everything becomes available for interpretation that can only fall into one category… an act of love.

Are you game for a new way of being with your history?

Imagine experiencing a life without bars. Too many of us, incarcerated or not are in a prison of our making. Freedom inside is possible. It’s possible once we remember the true nature of who we already are. Free. All Love and Only Love.

Read Conversations with God. And if you have read it, read it again.
