The following text is taken from the book 'Conversations with God' by Neale Donald Walsch. In this book Neale asks God a couple of questions, one of
these questions pertains to the creation of the universe. Here below is the text. Now after you are done reading the text, i will point you to
something interesting from a completely different and extremely rare source that corroborates with Neale's story, it is an audio fragment. The audio
fragment contains the points of view from a channeled entity, i will post this below the text. The channeled entity argues from from the point of view
that everything is ONE.
Life is not a school?
We are not here to learn lessons?
Then why are we here?
To remember, and re-create, Who You Are.
I have told you, over and over again. You do not believe Me. Yet that is well as it should be. For truly, if you do not create yourself as Who You
Are, that you cannot be.
Okay, You’ve lost me. Let’s go back to this school bit. I’ve heard teacher after teacher tell us that life is a school. I’m frankly shocked to
hear You deny that.
School is a place you go if there is something you do not know that you want to know. It is not a place you go if you already know a thing and simply
want to experience your knowingness.
Life (as you call it) is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. You need learn nothing to do this. You need
merely remember what you already know, and act on it.
I’m not sure I understand.
Let’s start here. The soul—your soul—knows all there is to know all the time. There’s nothing hidden to it, nothing unknown. Yet knowing is
not enough. The soul seeks to experience.
You can know yourself to be generous, but unless you do something which displays generosity, you have nothing but a concept. You can know yourself to
be kind, but unless you do someone a kindness, you have nothing but an idea about yourself.
It is your soul’s only desire to turn its grandest concept about itself into its greatest experience. Until concept becomes experience, all there is
is speculation. I have been speculating about Myself for a long time. Longer than you and I could collectively remember. Longer than the age of this
universe times the age of the universe. You see, then, how young is—how new is—My experience of Myself!
You’ve lost me again. Your experience of Yourself?
Yes. Let me explain it to you this way:
In the beginning, that which Is is all there was, and there was nothing else. Yet All That Is could not know itself—because All That Is is all there
was, and there was nothing else. And so, All That Is… was not. For in the absence of something else, All That Is, is not.
This is the great Is/Not Is to which mystics have referred from the beginning of time.
Now All That Is knew it was all there was—but this was not enough, for it could only know its utter magnificence conceptually, not experientially.
Yet the experience of itself is that for which it longed, for it wanted to know what it felt like to be so magnificent. Still, this was impossible,
because the very term “magnificent” is a relative term. All That Is could not know what it felt like to be magnificent unless that which is not
showed up. In the absence of that which is not, that which IS, is not.
Do you understand this?
I think so. Keep going.
Alright The one thing that All That Is knew is that there was nothing else. And so It could, and would, never know Itself from a reference point
outside of Itself. Such a point did not exist. Only one reference point existed, and that was the single place within. The “Is-Not Is.” The Am-Not
Still, the All of Everything chose to know Itself experientially.
This energy—this pure, unseen, unheard, unobserved, and therefore unknown-by-anyone-else energy—chose to experience Itself as the utter
magnificence It was. In order to do this, It realized It would have to use a reference point within.
It reasoned, quite correctly, that any portion of Itself would necessarily have to be less than the whole, and that if It thus simply divided Itself
into portions, each portion, being less than the whole, could look back on the rest of Itself and see magnificence.
And so All That Is divided Itself—becoming, in one glorious moment, that which is this, and that which is that. For the first time, this and that
existed, quite apart from each other. And still, both existed simultaneously. As did all that was neither.
Thus, three elements suddenly existed: that which is here. That which is there. And that which is neither here nor there—but which must exist for
here and there to exist.
It is the nothing which holds the everything. It is the non-space which holds the space. It is the all which holds the parts.
Can you understand this?
Are you following this?
I think I am, actually. Believe it or not, you have used such a clear illustration that I think I’m actually understanding this.
I’m going to go further. Now this nothing which holds the everything is what some people call God. Yet that is not accurate, either, for it suggests
that there is something God is not—namely, everything that is not “nothing.” But I am All Things—seen and unseen—so this description of Me
as the Great Unseen—the No-Thing, or the Space Between, an essentially Eastern mystical definition of God, is no more accurate than the essentially
Western practical description of God as all that is seen. Those who believe that God is All That Is and All That Is Not, are those whose understanding
Now in creating that which is “here” and that which is “there,” God made it possible for God to know Itself. In the moment of this great
explosion from within, God created relativity—the greatest gift God ever gave to Itself. Thus, relationship is the greatest gift God ever gave to
you, a point to be discussed in detail later.
From the No-Thing thus sprang the Everything—a spiritual event entirely consistent, incidentally, with what your scientists call The Big Bang
theory. As the elements of all raced forth, time was created, for a thing was first here, then it was there—and the period it took to get from here
to there was measurable.
Just as the parts of Itself which are seen began to define themselves, “relative” to each other, so, too, did the parts which are unseen. God knew
that for love to exist—and to know itself as pure love—its exact opposite had to exist as well. So God voluntarily created the great
polarity—the absolute opposite of love—everything that love is not—what is now called fear. In the moment fear existed, love could exist as a
thing that could be experienced.
It is this creation of duality between love and its opposite which humans refer to in their various mythologies as the birth of evil, the fall of
Adam, the rebellion of Satan, and so forth.
Just as you have chosen to personify pure love as the character you call God, so have you chosen to personify abject fear as the character you call
Some on Earth have established rather elaborate mythologies around this event, complete with scenarios of battles and war, angelic soldiers and
devilish warriors, the forces of good and evil, of light and dark.
This mythology has been mankind’s early attempt to understand, and tell others in a way they could understand, a cosmic occurrence of which the
human soul is deeply aware, but of which the mind can barely conceive.
