Publisher's Summary

"I’ve never had a conversation with Neale Donald Walsch that didn’t expand my thinking and touch my heart, and reading The Essential Path has the same effect. At a time when we so need hope, Neale shows us where to find it.” (Marianne Williamson, best-selling author of A Return to Love and A Year of Miracles)

This program is read by the author.

“Deep inside you know Who You Truly Are. We all do. It's not a question of discovering it, it's a question of claiming it. Being it. And that's actually easier done than said. We're all just one decision away from The Essential Path. It's a path that could change a world that deeply yearns for a new direction.” (Neale Donald Walsch, author, The Essential Path)

Our modern era is plagued by increasing alienation - we are seeing an “us against them” world. Everywhere we turn, we find ourselves divided from each other as never before across political, economic, social, and spiritual lines. As humanity is being torn apart right before our eyes - separating many of us from our friends and even our loved ones, from our hopes and dreams, from the natural world, and from so much that gives meaning and value to our lives - people are blaming everyone and everything around them for the collective problems that we have created ourselves. We are turning against each other, rather than to each other, just when we need each other the most.

Best-selling author of Conversations with God Neale Donald Walsch offers a radical solution to the growing problem of humanity’s alienation. He invites us to question our basic assumptions about ourselves, about each other, about life and how it works, and about God, and to rethink the very definition of humanity. The Essential Path challenges every human to make a daring decision - to look at who we are and how we can choose to be, in a planet-altering new way.

With insight and spiritual perceptivity, Walsch peers into the heart of a broken, divided society, prompting us to ask the critical questions that have the power to transform our world.

Powerful.

While there was little in this book that was new to me, it seems to have awakened a new hope in me. I often feel helpless when I see, hear, or read about all the suffering taking place on our planet. This short, succinct book offers a way for each of us to be part of a solution.

An essential, ABSOLUTE CTA!

I just finished headshots for an AI engineer. During that session he expressed his awe & respect for, as my friend Mary calls it the Grand Overall Designer (GOD). In that conversation I told him about this book I was reading, and by no surprise he had read Conversations with God as well. Later in that longer-than-usual session, he shared that we are only 10 yrs from plugging data directly into our brains (sans the benefit of experience or feeling) If we find it necessary to completely replicate this amazing human experience, may this book be the first MANDATORY download for all humans. Perhaps we would all just put our phones down after that download. Until then, reward yourself with one of the most all encompassing compilations of indisputable Truth that I have ever read! Now I have to go buy the book! So many things to highlight, underscore and put into practice! NDW, I’m so glad you read this! BeaUtiful delivery of the Absolute Gifts that you streamed! Thank you for saying YES to the expression of life that you are!

Real Questions to God

Real Questions to God God wants nothing? No! God wants to be happy! God wants happiness. Everything is with limitations so imperfect God knows everything? God is imperfect? And all eternity before us; God doesn’t know who is God? If God is want us to give directions and informations then why God can’t appear in front of us without any doubt so everyone knows? Like Superman!? If God wants me to know something then Why God can’t talk to me as God talk to him? Because I am not listening? But I am listening God knew everything then why? Recreation to know God? Because God love suffering? Why God can’t give us new technologies to make ourselves easier? If I am part of God and everything then what am I not? Impossible? Fallacies We are not separate. all are one God has no preferences. Without opposites no happiness without sadness. God is talking to us.

Big Disappointment

I have purchased and read the two CWG trilogys along with several other Walsch works. This book is nothing more than an avenue for him to inject his social and political ideologies undernthe guise of his previously scripted tenets... He fails miserably. I couldn't finish it even while listening to it on my running course... Don't waste your money... I did...

A powerful and refreshing reminder

A powerful and timely reminder of what's really important as well as a comprehensive joining of two very powerful spiritual Concepts that I have not seen in Neal's prior or other spiritual books in this way. More than just a repetition of what's come before it was refreshing.
