Have you ever heard the story of how if you’re seeking some type of inspiration, guidance or enlightenment – just go to the library or bookstore and your Divine Essence and guides will guide you to the perfect information serving your highest path at that time – even to the point of having books that may be helpful to you drop off the shelf right in front of you?
Well, I’ve experienced that and that’s exactly what happened to me back in circa 2001. I went to the library looking for something inspirational and whammo “Conversations with God – Book 1” by Neale Donald Walsch fell off the shelf in front of me. At the time that happened, I was gobbling up information on near death experiences and had gone to the library to find out more. I eventually made my way through the entire series and found it life changing!
Below is the latest “Note from Neale” published as part of the CWG weekly bulletin entitled “Doing Things You Never Did Before”. It’s an excellent discussion on bringing joy into everyday life, doing things you’ve never done before and transforming your life so that your joy becomes what you do in the world.
Love, peace and blessings,

Doing things you never did before
A Note from Neale…
My dear friends…
We spoke in our last Bulletin about what happens when you have The Holy Experience. This experience is what results when you notice what is already there in your life, and step into the demonstrating of it as you walk through your daily moments. Everything shifts in those moments, because you are experiencing them in a new way. Nothing has changed, but everything is different.
If you are picking up this conversation in the middle here, it may serve you to go back an issue or two in The Weekly Bulletin and “read into” what is being said here. And…now to go on…
When you have entered into The Holy Experience, people–in many cases total strangers–will begin to notice you. Your own inner guidance will lead you to grander and greater expressions of your wonderful Self.
You’ll find yourself doing all sorts of things you might never have thought you’d be doing…or could only have dreamt of doing before now. Like writing poetry (and having it published), or taking up photography (and having people asking you for your pictures).
Like running for office, or joining the hospital board. Or picking up a musical instrument. Or starting a business focused on bringing benefit or beauty to others. Or singing your song and dancing your dance in the wondrous way that is perfectly suited to you and only you…as the only snowflake quite like you in the Universe.
Suddenly you won’t worry about what you can get out of it, but of what you can put into it–so that others might get as much out of it as possible. Making money at it won’t matter.
You’ll find time to do what you find joy in doing, to offer what you find your bliss in offering, and the job you hold in the work-a-day world, if the two are not one and the same, will facilitate your bringing your gift–which will make that job a joy as well, for you will see it as supporting you, rather than stopping you, in presenting the most special part of you to the world.
And do not be surprised if after a little while your whole life is turned around and your joy becomes what you do in the world that produces income. Because this is what the Holy Experience can produce in your larger life in the world. A complete turn-around.
Take it from me.
There are many situations in which you may choose to have the Holy Experience. Now that may sound like a strange thing to say, so let’s take a look at it.
At first, it may seem strange to speak of the Holy Experience as something that you “choose to have.” Most people think of things that are holy as things that are rare. Or at the very least, not controllable in the first person. That is, they do not see themselves as being at cause in the matter.
In fact, they are. We all are. All of us. We are “choosing to have” all of the experiences that we are having, moment-to-moment. And that is where we will pick up this ongoing discussion next week! I hope and trust that you are enjoying this mental and spiritual excursion.
Hugs and love, Neale
