Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1 Audiobook by Neale Donald Walsch is a book in which the author claims to provide his conversations with God. Walsch was unhappy and frustrated with his life. He decided to write a letter to God with his questions. Walsch claims that as he finished writing his last question, the pen moved on its own and he was writing words like taking dictation. The author says that this was God dictating the answers to his questions. This conversation with God continued for three years. The author says that it was more like taking dictations as he did not know the response to his questions after he had finished writing them.
Walsch says that God does not communicate only with words but with feelings, thoughts, and experiences. When these form of communication fails, then only God communicates through words, which is the least preferred form of communication as words can be misinterpreted. An experience is God’s most powerful message but it is ignored by most people. All people and moments are special. Some people believe that God communicates in some special way and only with some special people.
This is a wrong assumption and it limits their abilities to receive communication from God. The author also emphasizes that if one receives a message from God, then it is imperative that the message is interpreted. God is also revealed and understood not from external observations but from internal experiences. Walsch also goes on to say that all human actions result from only two emotions-love or fear. God is not punishing, God does not judge and should not be feared.
