This book is truly inspirational. Not being a really religious person, I would say I’m highly spiritual in the sense that I do feel connected to every single human being, and when I’m in the mountains, the woods around bodies of water, such as Lakes, Rivers, and ponds etc. I do feel a connectedness to the universe. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to get more in touch with their spirituality, religious or not.
These were some of my favorite passages from the book.
“Fortunately, I could feel a huge difference between this mind-directed writing and the spirit-directed taking of dictation that I had previously experienced.”
“The purpose of the Conversations with God books is not only to bring us statements of eternal truth, but also the tools with which to utilize this wisdom, applying it to our day-to-day lives.”
“Everything that has happened in your life has happened perfectly in order for you—and all the souls involved with you—to grow in exactly the way you’ve needed and wanted to grow.”
“On purpose. You must learn to be gentle with yourself. And stop judging yourself.”
“You cannot discredit truth. Truth is truth, and it can neither be proven nor disproven. It simply is. The wonder and the beauty of My message cannot and will not be affected by what people think of you. Indeed, you are one of the best ambassadors, because you have lived your life in a way that you call less than perfect. People can relate to you—even as they judge you. And if they see that you are truly sincere, they can even forgive you your “sordid past.”
“Yet I tell you this: 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“It was only when you stopped fearing Me that you could create any kind of meaningful relationship with Me.”
“Do you see how you can block yourself? Do you see how you can sabotage yourself? Do you see how you can stop yourself in your tracks just when you are on to something good? You’ve been doing this all your life.”
“You’re saying it’s all contextual. Yes. All of life is. What is “best” depends on who you are, and who you seek to be. You cannot intelligently choose what is best for you until you intelligently decide who and what you are. Now I, as God, know what I am seeking to be. I therefore know what is “best” for Me.”
“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.”
“That’s right. On the other hand, the person who is “being” happy seems to have time to do everything that’s really important, all the money that’s needed, and enough love to last a lifetime.”
“To be, or not to be. That is the question.” Precisely. Happiness is a state of mind. And like all states of mind, it reproduces itself in physical form. There’s a statement for a refrigerator magnet: “All states of mind reproduce themselves.”
“Act as if you are, and you will draw it to you. What you act as if you are, you become. In other words, “Fake it until you make it.” Something like that, yes. Only you can’t really be “faking.” Your actions have to be sincere.”
“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.”
“If you choose more love in your life, cause another to have more love in theirs. Do this sincerely—not because you seek personal gain, but because you really want the other person to have that—and all the things you give away will come to you.”
“And what is the fastest way to “be” wisdom? Cause another to be wise.”
“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.”
“Grief is a natural emotion. It’s that part of you which allows you to say goodbye when you don’t want to say goodbye; to express—push out, propel—the sadness within you at the experience of any kind of loss. It could be the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a contact lens. When you are allowed to express your grief, you get rid of it. Children who are allowed to be sad when they are sad feel very healthy about sadness when they are adults, and therefore usually move through their sadness very quickly. Children who are told, “There, there, don’t cry,” have a hard time crying as adults.”
Anger is a natural emotion. It is the tool you have which allows you to say, “No, thank you.” It does not have to be abusive, and it never has to be damaging to another. When children are allowed to express their anger, they bring a very healthy attitude about it to their adult years, and therefore usually move through their anger very quickly. Children who are made to feel that their anger is not okay—that it is wrong to express it, and, in fact, that they shouldn’t even experience it—will have a difficult time appropriately dealing with their anger as adults.”
“Anger that is continually repressed becomes rage, a very unnatural emotion. People have killed because of rage. Wars have started, nations have fallen.”
“All other fears are learned responses, brought to the child by its environment, taught to the child by its parents. The purpose of natural fear is to build in a bit of caution.”
“Yet love which has been conditioned, limited, warped by rules and regulations, rituals and restrictions, controlled, manipulated, and withheld, becomes unnatural.”
“Child bearing was meant to be an activity of the young, whose bodies are well developed and strong.”
“Child raising was meant to be an activity of the elders, whose minds are well developed and strong. In your society you have insisted
“Then Freud was on to something when he said that a huge amount of the anger in the human species might be sexually related—deep-seated rage over having to repress basic and natural physical instincts, interests, and urges.”
“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.”
“For this third portion of our conversation, this third book, is about building a newer world, creating a new reality. You have been living too long, My children, in a prison of your own devise. It is time to set yourself free.”
“That is when men became the dominant species, and then decided it was inappropriate to display emotions—or in some cases to even have them.”
“Stop thinking of yourself as separate, and all the true power that comes from the inner strength of unity is yours —as a worldwide society, and as an individual part of that whole—to wield as you wish.”
“Just as I know My perfection of design through a snowflake, My awesome beauty through a rose, so, too, do I know My creative power—through you.”
“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.”
“This would relieve a lot of people of a lot of guilt around sex. It is why I have said, play, play, play with sex— and with all of life!”
“In other words, as You have said so often, time does not exist. Not as you understand it. The phenomenon of “time” is really a function of perspective.”
“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.”
“Just kidding. Lightening things up here. Having a little fun. I cannot actually be “offended.” Yet your fellow human beings often allow themselves to be offended on My behalf.”
“And it is your strongest thoughts, the ones you’ve held most fervently, that, as always in life, will prevail.”
“Now I will agree that the mesh on your filter is thinner, finer. You have become a very good filter. But you are a filter nonetheless.”
“It is not possible for you and your relatives not to want the same thing. You and I, and your relatives and I—all of us—are one and the same.”
“This Sponsoring Thought causes you to employ all sorts of strategies and tactics in seeking to acquire what you think there is “not enough” of. These are approaches you would abandon at once were you clear that there is enough for everybody . . . of whatever it is that you desire.”
“I will give you all exactly what you desire, always. Even as I have done from the beginning of time.”
“Are You really always giving everyone exactly what they desire at any given time? Yes, My beloved, I am. Your life is a reflection of what you desire, and what you believe you may have of what you desire.”
“Believing that you cannot have something is the same thing as not desiring to have it, for it produces the same result.”
“Try, instead, to move to a state of total awareness. Then belief will no longer be necessary. Complete Knowing will work its wonders.”
your master teacher, what you say is, “I see you.” And what you see in another, you can begin to see in yourself. It is outward evidence of your inner reality. It is outward proof of your inner truth. The truth of your being.
Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills
People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.
Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.
It was hell.
After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.
Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
