Editorial Reviews


It is an inspiring prospect that reflects the wisdom of these writings. This is not a book to be read through and never consulted again, but rather one to absorb and integrate. The Network Review --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

More About the Author

NEALE DONALD WALSCH is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with God. The "Conversations with God" series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.

"Conversations with God" has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale has created several outreach projects, including the CWG Foundation, CWG for Parents, Humanity's Team, the CWG Helping Outreach, and The Global Conversation --- all accessible at the "hub" website, and all dedicated to help the world move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.

Neale's work has taken him from the steps of Macchu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone --- from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul --- Neale has experienced a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.

He lives with his wife, the American poet Em Claire, in Oregon. Find out more at

I've never written a review before but this book is so fantastic that I just had to write one even though I'm only about half way through. It fills in all the missing pieces that I've been looking for and confirmations also. Neale's way of getting the message through is easy to understand and very clear. It is the best book out there for one to understand the souls agenda, our purpose and all the whys and hows. Don't hesitate for one second if you're thinking of buying this book, you WON'T regret it! Don't skip any chapters even though Neale's says that you can if you want because if you do you will miss SO MANY GREAT NUGGETS of wisdom and clarity.

Here are a couple of great nuggets:

"Divinity is all of these things and much more. It is Patience and Kindness, Goodness and Mercy, Acceptance and Forbearance. Wisdom and Clarity, Gentleness and Beauty, Selflessness and Nobility, Benevolence and Generosity. And yes, so much, much more.
You can imagine all of these things, you can think about all of these things, you can hold all of these things as ideas conceptually, but until you EXPRESS all of these things IN you, THROUGH you, AS you, you have not experienced Divinity.
And you will never have an opportunity to experience these things unless Life PROVIDES you with such an opportunity."

"The story of humanity's birthing into the cosmic community of Highly Evolved Beings is already complete, etched into EverMoment.
All has already occurred in that place of Time/No time. It is only the re-witnessing of The Story, with the eyes of our own Consciousness gazing upon it, that is awaited. It is us, bearing witness, that make the story's unfoldment real to us."

Wow! I can honestly say, I have never read a book like this one. Ever. And I've read most of the Conversations With God series. I've gotten a lot out of the works of Neale Donald Walsch over the years, though I did find Happier Than God a bit confusing on the first read. That said, The Only Thing That Matters really, and I mean really, stands out from the pack. There's some mind blowing stuff in this sucker. A couple times, I just put the bookmark in, closed it, and stared at the back cover while I assimilated what was just communicated. This is Book 2 in the Conversations With Humanity series, I haven't yet read Book 1, but I didn't find that to be any hindrance whatsoever. You know, it's really great when a self-help book actually helps you better understand your self, your place in the grand scheme of things, and how to improve your experience of both. The Only Thing That Matters lays it all out in a way that is easy to understand (once you get past startled). It also contains five powerful gifts that will change your life if you let them. It's ironic that a book on spirituality and oneness can be so unique, the author truly outdid himself on this one. I swear, I'm not just saying that. FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.

I have just finished reading this superbly insightful and wonderfully wise book and I whole heartedly recommend it to EVERYONE! The book is in a very easily accessible form and although it deals with things of an esoteric nature it does so in a way that our minds can easily understand. It helped me to remember so much - particularly the very purpose of my existence and how to open up to the messages of the soul and begin to trust them more fully than I have been doing. And what is more important is that it did so in such a gentle and encouraging way that I felt no fear only great love, excitement and gratitude to be on this journey into the heart of Life and to have such a great guide along by my side. Thank you Neale.

"Know who you really are - and that all those whose lives you touch might know who they are as well, by the light of your example." So says Neale Donald Walsch, author of The Only Thing That Matters.

Walsch gave me a "get out of prison" pass. The pass provided me the ability to learn how to bypass my pain and suffering. It's a pass that can stop the unending supply of negative energy in life. It's all about re-membering (Walsch's play on words) my mind to my soul's knowledge.

What I've learned from The Only Thing That Matters is that re-membering my soul's knowledge is easier than I thought.

By re-membering (reconnecting) my body and mind to my soul with tools he provides, I can tap into solving problems that my soul has already solved for me. It's a matter of bringing forth and remembering my soul's knowledge.

This was a remarkable book reminding me that my soul has a path and a journey. The only problem I'm having with following my path is that I keep taking another route. My route is always a harder one because I keep deviating from the path my soul already knows.

Walsch explains that everything happening to me right now is to give me the opportunity to connect with my soul's agenda. His tools are to free me from suffering, anger, resentment, self-blame, lack of self-worth, hurt and even injury.

An eye-opener was when Walsch asked me to agree that anger, hatred, and violence are a distorted form of love? It was an "aha" moment for me; one that Walsch spends a great deal of time explaining so eloquently in this book.
He explains that this distortion disrupts our ability to connect our body, mind and soul and, therefore, takes us off course.
