Walsch'sinternational bestseller Conversations with God was followed with other books on spirituality, making him a well-known name for his views.
He says that the greatest irony of life is that what all of us want, we all have already. ?We have an abundance of that which we wish we had an abundance of,? says Walsch.
It is right to a considerable extent that perspective plays an important role in determining how we experience life. What one person considers ?lack? may seem like ?plenty? to others. Thus our private views create our private experiences ?and our definitions, or what I call our decisions about things, duplicate and enlarge themselves. What we say is so, is what will grow to be so.?
From the beginning of time, all we have ever wanted was to love and be loved. And from the beginning of time all we?ve done is to create moral restrictions, religious taboos, societal ethics, familial traditions, philosophical constructions, all manners of rules and regulations telling us who, when, where, what and how we may love and who, when where, what and how we may not. Unfortunately the second list is longer than the first.
Walsch seems obsessed with the word ?abundance?. He says that when a person gives of himself abundantly, the world finds him crazy.
Walsch'ssuggestion for tackling life is to create and re-create a ?new collective consciousness and an awareness of the collective. By that I mean, a collective awareness of our collective experiences. What is needed is a universal awareness of our oneness?the fact that there really is ?a single collective and that we all belong to it. And nobody is outside of that. And nobody within that collective is better than anyone else. What an extraordinary idea,? he concludes.
