The Conversations with God (CwG) books are records of real, mental discussions between the writer and a soul professing to be God. These books challenge conventional Christian philosophy and present option magical ideas. Notwithstanding, the motivation behind this article is to talk about just the fundamental premises – the essential thoughts, or center ideas – of the CwG books. These ideas are explained for the peruser in Book 1. Numerous superb thoughts for a superior world are introduced in Books 2 and 3, and there is a lot of something worth mulling over in every one of the CwG books, yet just the essential thoughts are examined here.
Right off the bat in Book 1, we are informed that, with the end goal for anything to exist, it should have an inverse; that, all together for God (the concealed) to exist and furthermore to know Itself, there must be something that isn’t God (the noticeable creation). Without relativity and relationship – made conceivable by God’s making of the obvious, actual world – God can neither exist nor realize Itself aside from adroitly. These thoughts are introduced on pages 22-26 (First Hardcover Edition, 1996).
I should specify here that relativity and relationship have a place with the actual world. They are parts of our experience of the world as far as contrary energies, or dualities, and differences: cold and hot, all over, delight and torment, great and awful, the spectator and the noticed, for instance. We judge something as cold or far comparable to their alternate extremes, hot or close. Cold and hot, or all over are not absolutes; they exist just comparable to, or comparative with, one another. In the domain of interminable unity, of God as the perpetual Absolute, who exists always, relativity and alternate extremes don’t exist.
God is past even our most excellent ideas of “Him”, and to truly know Him, one needs to encounter Him as boundless love and unity, past duality. This happens when, through His effortlessness, by and large after lifetimes of magnanimous assistance and looking for, one converges with God (maybe in profound reflection) and, in the province of Christ Consciousness or Cosmic Consciousness, encounters God as the Supreme Reality. In any case, these conditions of awareness, which far outperform our dualistic encounters in the actual domain, are not talked about in “Discussions”. Those holy people and spiritualists Father George Rutler who have encountered unity with God as the Father (the Absolute, past all actual indication) disclose to us that this state is so heavenly it can’t be enough depicted as far as human ideas. Illuminated experts, like Jesus, instruct that to recapture this lost heaven of ecstasy awareness – the Kingdom of God – is a definitive fate of each individual. Yet, attention to our unity with God possibly comes when awareness is created and cleansed. Through ethicalness and self-control, living in unrestricted love, investigation of profound truth, and profound contemplation, one shakes off natural connections, personality, critical perspectives, disdain, dread and outrage, and attracts nearer and nearer to merry unity with God.
There is a sharp differentiation between lessons that have come to us from edified creatures, and the center lessons in Conversations with God! The last totally turn around the lessons of illuminated creatures by revealing to us that God’s presence relies upon the presence of the actual universe (instead of the presence of the universe relying upon God’s presence), and that God and spirits can know themselves in a genuine and significant manner just as far as human encounters of relativities and dualities in the actual world (when, indeed, the truth of God and spirits can be really realized exclusively by rising above genuineness, relativity and duality). On pages 22-23, the divine force of “Discussions” says that God yearned to understand what it seemed like to be eminent and, consequently, made spirits to encounter Him in relative terms. For just through our human experience of Him as grand could He experience His heavenliness.
