What is the Evolution Revolution?
It’s really quite simple. If you’re totally okay with life on this planet right now—or if you think things are sad, but you can’t do anything about it—this is not for you. If, on the other hand, you see yourself as having the power, working with other committed people, to effect real change, then you have come to the right place.
But let’s be very clear at the outset: Despite having the word ‘revolution’ in our name, we are not supporting violence of any kind. On the contrary, what we propose is quite the opposite; social change through spiritual awakening producing impactful compassion. We are calling for the most dramatic shift in fundamental beliefs in human history.
Yet this is not about starting a new religion. This is about showing, in very clear terms at last, that there IS common ground, where all religions and non-believers can come together for the benefit of all humankind.
This is about changing the world as it is.
A very important question was posted on the Internet recently by Karlheinz Kohler, who lives in Dornbirn, regarding the foundational messages upon which the Evolution Revolution is based. You’re invited to read it here.
It’s a very short video, but it will explain in graphic terms why I am inviting you to join with me and thousands of others from around the world in a global movement to alter life as we are now experiencing it on this planet.
I know this is asking a lot (many of us just do not have the time or the patience or the attention span anymore to take anything more than 30 seconds to a minute with anything on the Internet….and this video is just over 6 minutes long. So this is asking a lot. But when you see this video, you will understand everything about why this website and this movement exists, and you will want to share it with everyone you know.) read more…

* You think you are being terrorized by other people, but in truth you are being terrorized by your beliefs. Your experience of yourself and your world will shift dramatically if you adopt the Five Steps to Peace:
(1) Permit yourself to acknowledge that some of your old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.
(2) Explore the possibility that there is something you do not fully understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which would change everything.
(3) Announce that you are willing for new understandings of God and Life to now be brought forth,understandings that could produce a new way of life on this planet. read more…
Newest message from Neale
A Note from Neale: For the next several months this space will be used to explore — one-by-one — the messages, metaphysical principles, and spiritual meaning of the material found in the nearly 3,000 pages of the Conversations with God dialogues. This series of observations and interpretations is offered with my continuing disclaimer: I could be wrong about all of this.
CWG Explored/Installment #5: What causes transformation?
Much has been made in the New Thought Movement of the word “transformation.” It has been said repeatedly in New Age circles that personal transformation is the ultimate goal in life. Yet what is “personal transformation,” and how does one achieve it?
This is not always addressed in specific terms within the community of New Spirituality authors, teachers, and messengers — who tend to speak in broad general terms, such as “higher consciousness,” or “awareness.”
I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare that in my own inner world — which has largely been created by the Conversations with God experience — the term “personal transformation” means the changing of one’s identity, or the embracing of a “new thought” about oneself, seeing oneself from this moment on as One with, and an expression of, God.
It is in this context that I have called myself, and every human being, a Singularization of The Singularity, or an Individuation of Divinity.
I have held the thought that a person who walks through the world holding the Identity of Divinity deep within changes the exterior experience of everyone else everywhere she or he steps, every room he or she enters, every space she or he occupies.
In my last entry here I said that if our entire species walked through this world holding such an identity deep within, it would produce Heaven on Earth.
The question is, what could cause our entire species to do so? Perhaps more to the point, what does it take to be “transformed” — or, as some have labeled it, “enlightened?”
So let’s look at that here. Let’s discuss this elusive magical mystical experience for which so many seem to be searching.
I’ll begin by observing that there is a pitfall here, and even a danger. The danger is two-fold. The first danger is thinking that there is something specific that you have to do in order to be Enlightened, and that if you don’t do it, you can’t be it. The second danger is thinking that there is only one best way.
Werner Erhard created Erhard Seminar Trainings (est) about 25 years ago or so, and the people who were involved in it were absolutely convinced that this was the fastest way to enlightenment. They began recruiting people to take est, and it was almost an urgent matter with them. And if you didn’t get the urgency, they would look at you and say, “You just don’t get it.”
I enrolled in the est program and I “got it.” In fact, I became so enlightened that I realized I did not need est to be enlightened – which really upset the est people, because they wanted me to take the next level and the next level of the training.
est was a program with multitudinous levels. Once you got into the program you had to almost extract yourself from it. And if you did get out of it, you were made to feel by those who were still inside it that you had done something desperately sad. Not wrong, just very sad. Because you just didn’t get it.
Many years ago Paramahansa Yogananda came to America with a technique for “self-realization,” which was his phrase meaning “enlightenment.” When you realize the Self, he said, you are more aware. You are more at peace with the world. You are internally serene, content, and able to experience Divine Presence in you, as you.
Now I want you to understand that I am not putting this down or belittling any of this. This is all very real, and that is why every person who has ever achieved mastery has wanted to share it with others. Human beings who are truly enlightened, truly aware (and there are many of them), experience at a deep level that most of us are operating from a place of pain, extreme suffering, emotional turmoil, physical dis-ease, and are, as a result, creating an entire world like that. Yet Masters know that none of this is necessary. You can overcome it, create yourself and your world in a new way. But first, you have to know Who You Are.
Paramahansa Yogananda knew who he was. He described himself as being enlightened. And he was enlightened. He was enlightened because he said he was.
Yes, I hate to break the spell, but to be enlightened is to say that you are. It is as simple as that.
A fascinating man named Maharishi surfaced a few of decades ago and he announced yet another path to enlightenment. His path was called Transcendental Meditation or, for short, TM.
Now, I learned a little about Transcendental Meditation and I learned it from students who learned it from other students who learned it from other students who learned it from the Master. And there is some sense of quiet urgency with some people in the transcendental meditation movement, because they will tell you that TM is a tool that can bring you to enlightenment in a very short period of time – and they want that for you.
There are many other programs as well. Many approaches, many paths, developed by many Masters. There is Dahn Hak and there is the Avatar Training and there is Lifespring and the list goes on and on. Which path, then, should we take?
God says, “No one calls to Me who is not answered.” The promise here is that each of us will be answered in the way that most effectively responds to the vibration we hold and create and carry in the center of our being.
Many people are inspired to this day by the man known as Buddha, and so have become Buddhists. It is, perhaps, good to tell the whole story of Buddha.
His name was Siddhartha Gautama. His father was the ruler of a large area who wanted to protect Siddhartha from any knowledge of the outside world. Siddhartha was kept on the grounds of the family compound, but one day he ventured beyond the walls because he wished to learn more of life. He gave up his riches and his whole family, left his wife and children and disappeared, to embark on his search for what was true.
Immediately he encountered people who were enduring much suffering. There was poverty. There was disease. There was cruelty. Siddhartha was stunned, and he knew, he just knew, that life was not meant to be like that. But what, then, was the truth? What was the path?
“What can I do?” he asked himself, and he underwent a series of extreme physical and mental disciplines of every imaginable sort, including fasting and prostration and self-denial. This went on for years. He sought out Masters and did as they told him. Yet nothing brought him the experience of enlightenment. It only brought him an arduous life and an emaciated body.
One day Siddhartha Gautama said, “I’ve tried everything. I’ve done all the physical disciplines, all the trainings, all the exercise, all the starvation, all the diets, all the fasting, and all the meditation. Now I’m just going to sit here beneath this tree and I’m not getting up until I’m enlightened.”
And there he sat, doing nothing. No exercises, no meditations, no fasting, no nothing. Now that is hard for many of us to do, because we think there is something we are suppose to be doing in order to be enlightened.
Suddenly Siddhartha said with a start: “I’m enlightened.” And people came to him and cried out, “What did you do? What did you do? Teach us, Master! You have become the Buddha, the Enlightened One. What is the secret? What did you do?”
And the Buddha said something quite extraordinary: “There is nothing that you have to be, do, or have.”
Imagine. After all that time. After the life he had lived and all that he did and saw. After all the luxury and then all the self-denial, after wearing a silk shirt and then a hair-shirt, after thoroughly satisfying his body and then starving his body, after no spiritual or physical discipline and then tons of discipline…after all that time, he realized it was not about doing or having anything and it was not about not doing or having anything. It was about the middle way.
It was about just living life, non-attached to anything in particular. Not attached to your luxuries and joys, and not attached to your poverty and tragedies. It was not about any of that. It can be if you want it to be. It can be if that is what suits you. It can be if that is your path, but it is not necessary to be, do, or have anything in particular.
The Buddha said, in effect, “I’m enlightened because I have realized that enlightenment is knowing that there is nothing you have to do to be enlightened.”
Isn’t that interesting? Think of all the effort that people are putting in, with years-long programs and trainings, only to find out that enlightenment requires nothing at all! You were “enlightened” when you came here, because you were Who You Were.
You were, are, always have been, and always will be, Divinity Expressed. You are Divine, and you simply don’t know it. Or don’t believe it. Or have forgotten it. Enlightenment is about remembering, declaring, expressing and experiencing Who You Really Are. That’s all that any spiritual master has ever done. Think of any spiritual master you wish to think of. That’s all that any of them have ever done.
So if you think there is a Path to Enlightenment that is the only path, the best path, the fastest path, you may suddenly find yourself feeling pressure, stress, a false urgency, even upset, and your ego may become deeply involved in convincing as many people as you can that the path you have found is the path they just have to experience.
Suddenly you will start acting not like a master at all, but like someone who is under a terrific amount of pressure and stress, because it will suddenly matter to you whether I “get” what you are trying to tell me.
If you are not careful, you even start having quotas or goals. You’ll have to get a certain number of other people to agree with you every week, or every month, or every year. And if you don’t meet those goals you will think that you have not done a good job.
And yet enlightenment, when it is all said and done, has nothing to do with what you do with your Body or your Mind. It has to do with what you do with your Soul. If you learn to love yourself and everyone else, and life itself, unconditionally, you will be “aware,” you will have reached “higher consciousness,” you will be “enlightened.”
In short, you will be transformed. You will be acting as The Divine. Because Divinity, in a word, is Love. Love without restriction, love without limitation, love without condition.
So this moment is the moment of your liberation. You can be liberated from your life-long search for enlightenment. You can be released from any thought that it has to look like this…no, no, it has to look like that…no, no, you have to get to it by this path, by that program, by the other process or activity.
You may still do those things if you choose to, but if you feel stressed about them, if you feel pressured by them, then how could they be a path to enlightenment?
So set yourself free today. Stop working so hard on yourself that you don’t even enjoy life anymore. Do what works for you, but make sure it brings you joy and harms neither yourself nor another. Enlightenment is enJOYment. It is the pouring of joy into Life.
Now here is one thing that I know will bring you joy. Spend the rest of your life giving people back to themselves, that they might love themselves, and know that there is nothing they are lacking, nothing they are missing, nothing they need, nothing they are not.
A sure way for you to experience that you are enlightened is to cause others to know that they are. That is the message and that will be the teaching of the New Spirituality. That is why Namaste’ has become such a powerful, such a meaningful and special, exchange of energy:
“The God in me sees the God in you.”
There’s nothing more to be done if we really mean that. Of course, if we are saying it because it sounds good, then there is a great deal more to be done. But if, when we say this, we really mean it…then the struggle is finished, the search is over, and enlightenment, transformation, is yours at last.

Hello all. Nannette here (Neale’s assistant with the Evolution Revolution).
Because you’ve asked to be “counted in” in the Evolution Revolution, I’m going to tell you how you can “kick start” this grassroots movement, really igniting it around the world.
I’ve just obtained Neale’s new book, released only last week. After reading the sample chapters of the book, I immediately bought both the Kindle version and the hardcover version of it.
The book is titled GOD’S MESSAGE TO THE WORLD: You’ve Got Me All Wrong, and to say I want to keep reading doesn’t do justice to how I feel. After the first paragraphs, the book hooked me. Those paragraphs…
IT’S NOT A SMALL THING to be wrong about God.
And if nearly everyone on the planet is wrong about God, it’s really not a small thing.
If nearly everyone on the planet has mistaken notions about God, then nearly everything that everyone on the planet is doing will not work the way it was intended. This is because the basis of so much of what they’re doing is found in so many of their beliefs about God.
And that is what I’m doing as I turn each page. Thinking. Thinking and agreeing with the divinely inspired words Neale has written.
Another line seriously popped off the first page for me: “Even those who don’t believe in God are impacted and guided by many of the fundamental principles placed into the Cultural Story by those who do.” I’d not even considered this thought, but of course, how could this not be true?
The early reaction to this new book from others has made it clear to me that God’s Message to the World: You’ve Got Me All Wrong very possibly is the play book, the jumping off point for rewriting our cultural story. Obtaining the book, reading the book and talking about it, and then “accidentally” leaving the book on a park bench or at the coffee shop or in some other public place, can be Phase One of a two-stage roll-out of the Evolution Revolution, leading up to March 12, 2015…what Neale has called “Awakening Day.”
Imagine what would happen if 700 copies of this book were ordered in one day! Such an event would place huge public attention to be focused on this document, because the title would shoot to the top of bestseller lists everywhere.
So here’s what I want to suggest:
Let everyone involved in this movement read the five sample chapters of GOD’S MESSAGE TO THE WORLD: You’ve Got Me All Wrong right now. If what you read resonates with you—if you believe this is a vital message that needs to be shared with the world—then obtain a copy of the book immediately, read the entire text, then decide where you are going to leave it “by mistake.”
That’s right! Decide to become a “Stealth Spiritual Messenger” as your first role in the Evolution Revolution by “forgetting” to take the book with you after you laid it down somewhere in public.
Okay…so to find the five sample chapters, go to:
Now I don’t want you to feel that I am overstating how powerful and important to our movement this book can be, so let me share with you just a few of the words that have been entered in the Comment string beneath where these chapters are now posted on the Internet:
Sherard Ray • Vice President at Daddy-O’s BBQ
This will be even bigger than the CwG series has been. Just as God only builds upon GodSelf, I can already see the movement this will bring to the world. I’ll be getting this one for sure.
WOW! – A REVOLUTION IS UPON THE UNIVERSE!!! I am a sacred activist for what’s birthing on earth!!!
Elna Adams • Monmouth College
What I have read here has put into words ideas that have floated vaguely at the back of my mind. I am grateful to see them in print. I love the idea of leaving books around to be found by others. Thanks, Neale.
Peter Callil • Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
This information is sorely needed at this time. Ultimately this will help change the way we view ourselves, and everyone else in the world—especially those we consider our enemies. Thank God for that.
Teresa St John · Wilmslow
Dear Neale I have just pre -ordered this book because the five chapters I have just read are brilliant. Thank you.
So now let me close by observing that everyone who agrees with the messages of Conversations with God says the same thing: “What can I do?” Now, here is something specific that you can do. Read these sample chapters. Then get this book. Then use “person-to-person marketing” to get it out into the world.
You can start people talking without you even saying a word.
