Episode 50: Davidson Hang Reflections on a Life Worth Living- Takeaways from Conversations with God Book3

Davidson Hang Reflections and Lessons from a life worth living

Some of my favorite passages from the book Conversations with God book 3. Shout out to Accomplishment Coaching to introduce me to the great Neale Donald Walsch

"Through you, I can know every aspect of Me. The perfection of the snowflake, the awesome beauty of the rose, the courage of lions, the majesty of eagles, all resides in you. In you I have placed all of these things—and one thing more: the consciousness to be aware of it."

"Life is a single occurrence, an event in the cosmos that is happening right now. All of it is happening. Everywhere. There is no “time” but now. There is no “place” but here." "Believing that you cannot have something is the same thing as not desiring to have it, for it produces the same result."

"You've moved away from each other. You've torn apart your families, disassembled your smaller communities in favor of huge cities. In these big cities there are more people, but fewer “tribes,” groups, or clans whose members see their responsibility as including responsibility for the whole. So, in effect, you have no elders. None at arm's reach, in any event."

"Ultimately, all thoughts are sponsored by love or fear. This is the great polarity. This is the primal duality. Everything, ultimately, breaks down to one of these. All thoughts, ideas, concepts, understandings, decisions, choices, and actions are based in one of these. And, in the end, there is really only one. Love." "Most people believe if they “have” a thing (more time, money, love—whatever), then they can finally “do” a thing (write a book, take up a hobby, go on vacation, buy a home, undertake a relationship), which will allow them to “be” a thing (happy, peaceful, content, or in love). In actuality, they are reversing the Be-Do-Have paradigm. In the universe as it really is (as opposed to how you think it is), “havingness” does not produce “beingness,” but the other way around. First you “be” the thing called “happy” (or “knowing,” or “wise,” or “compassionate,” or whatever), then you start “doing” things from this place of beingness—and soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things you've always wanted to “have.”

"Seek only to be genuine. Strive to be sincere. If you wish to undo all the “damage” you imagine yourself to have done, demonstrate that in your actions. Do what you can do. Then let it rest. That's easier said than done. Sometimes I feel so guilty. Guilt and fear are the only enemies of man."

"Yet I tell you this: So long as you are still worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them."

"Whatever you choose for yourself, give to another. If you choose to be happy, cause another to be happy. If you choose to be prosperous, cause another to prosper."

Let me know what you think about this book. Has anyone else read it? What books has anyone been reading that they would recommend to their peers during this time?
