Dear Friend,

Your coming to this web site means more to me than I could ever tell you. It says to me that you are one of the courageous ones. Someone on whom we can count on to continue the silent, individual search for the highest truth in order to make a difference in your own life.

Why this means so much to me is that I know that when you make a difference in your own life, you make a difference in the world. And the world is urgently in need of being made different now.

I know that I do not have to work hard to convince you of this. One look at today's headlines as you opened your Internet connection this morning has already done that. All that any of us are looking for now is a way to make a difference, a way to help change things.

Now you may be one of those who believe that there is not really much that any of us can do to have any real impact in such a huge undertaking, but I call out to you now from the deepest reaches of my heart to beg you not to accept that belief, not to embrace it, for it is simply not true.

Every-day people, in the every day living of their lives, are what create the collective reality on this planet in which we all live and move and have our being. The way in which you walk through our world affects our world, perhaps more profoundly than you might ever have guessed. A pebble dropped into the water creates ripples that extend beyond your imagining.

I know that most of you have come to this website because you have been touched in an important way by the messages in the With God series of books. Others of you may be here out of simple curiosity, having heard about these books and having wondered what all the commotion is about. In either case, I see you in the category of courageous people that I have described, for it takes courage even to be curious, and that is not a courage I dismiss lightly.

Part of the challenge we face in the world today is that so many people already have their minds made up about everything. About politics, about religion, about economics, about life itself. They feel that they have all the answers, and there is nothing further to question. There is merely to implement the answers, to insist on the answers, to stick to the answers no matter what.

Yet this is dogma, and dogma is killing us. Our refusal to look for new answers-or to even consider the possibility that new answers might exist-at a time when it is clear to all of us that the old answers are no longer working, is bringing an end to the experience of life on this planet as we have known it.

Of course it does not have to be like this. And it will not be, so long as people at least have the courage to ask, "Might there be another way?"

There are other ways to live our lives, other ways to interact together, other ways to resolve our differences, to deal with our major conflicts, and to reach decisions affecting the huge collective that we call Humanity. Some of those ways are described in the With God series of books-and this website exists for those who wish to know more about that.

So welcome. It is well that you have come here. I hope that you will travel all the pages of this site, explore their contents, and interact with us in ways that feel good to you. And I invite you to join with us in changing lives and changing the world, one person at a time, starting with ourselves.

I send you my love,
Neale Donald Walsch
