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 CWGPortal.com, 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 NealeDonaldWalsch.com.

I am a fan of Neale Donald Walsch's CWG books. I've stayed away from his subsequent offerings not only because they abandoned the "conversation format" that I really enjoyed but also because I felt that the books were just written to make money as opposed to offering any new ideas or information. I decided to give this new book a chance and I am torn between being a bit inspired and sorely disappointed. The message this time around seems supremely naive and to top it off Neale cites to Wikipedia as his source on numerous points. No offense, but Wikipedia? Not exactly the most reliable or respected source. There were also a lot of misspellings. I don't know if it is a failure of the Kindle version alone or not but it is really off putting. If he didn't care enough to spell words correctly why should I care enough to read it and take it seriously? Overall: an inspiring, if naive, message that is somewhat interesting and fun to read with tons of spelling errors.

The approach to this book had the potential to blossom into a really outstanding oevre. Unfortunately, Neale Donald Walsch's "The Storm Before the Calm" falls short of the great promise of the title.

As an avid reader of Walsch's books, starting with his Conversation...-series, I did not hesitate to pre-order this book even before the german translation was available. Getting it in my hands, I devoted 1/2 of my holidays to read it - and found myself rather disappointed.

A low rating of a book of a renowned author sure deserves a detailed explanation. So - find here my considerations:

(1) The title
A good title is half the message. "The storm.." has such a title. Understanding, that we (i.e. mankind) are in a transition is reassuring the disturbed and opens the horizon for the searching mind. Thumbs up. Well done. Congratulations!

(2) The approach
In short, NDW argues that we can not go on like we have done in the past. Everybody knows, feels or fears that. So he brings in his experience, his conversations with god and his personal opinions to sketch a way out of the mess. I wholly agree to the approach. I also agree that intensifying, enhancing and deepening the past "solutions" will only aggravate the situation. New solutions are indispensable. Agreed.

(3) The message
I agree with about 70% of the recommendations, NDW offers. Some are great, some are ok, some are disputable, some are just plain nonsense. The main problem I identify here is the many gaps. There is no clear picture, no overall understanding of where we are and where we did come from.

Knowing where you are is not sufficient to define your way forward. You also need to know, where you have come from and why you are, where you are.

Editing culture stories and belief systems, what a great idea! Where can I apply?

I suggested this a few years back to the UN when they asked for help with how to reach the Millennium Goals. I said we needed a Department of Equality, a Department of Imagination and a Department of Deep Heart (an ancient language all humans used to speak) in order to find our true selves again, but it probably sounded too much like fiction, or fantasy.

Neale's book invites us to be a part of A New Human Manifesto, to engage with each other in a global conversation with humanity. I think it's a marvellous idea, so simple and, therefore, so powerful.

We all want the same things in life: happiness, joy, purpose, fun, health, spirit, connection, friendship, love but we are very bad at working together to achieve what we say we want.

We have done so much dividing that we can't see that we're all members of the human family.

I grew up with this change and editing skill. My mother's parent fled Karelia, the part of Finland they lost to Russia during the war. Then they fled Finland when the borders were closing, and Russia was searching for Karelians.

In fear of being found they kept their original culture stories quiet but became experts on editing and renewing in order to show themselves, rather than a whole country. They contained much more than Karelia than Finland than Sweden, they contained the possibilities of the universe and in their bold editing of their birth story they find a new reason for living. In their gratefulness to Sweden, I grew in awe of Finland.

My grandparent's love of their new country, and their editing of their birth culture story was a powerful inspiration to live my life according to my heart.

In this book Neale takes us through 28 "Conversations" that he encourages us to carryout with the rest of humanity. Through the website The Global Conversation, he encourages us to create a dialogue. Essentially, the world is evolving and we need to be a part of our own evolution. He brings up 7 Essential Questions that mankind must ask, there is no right or wrong answer, but these questions, according to Neale, will ease our evolution as a part of humanity.

1. How is it possible that 6.9 billion people can all claim to want the same thing (peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness and love) and be singularly unable to get it?
2. Is it possible that there is something we do not fully understand about life, the understanding of which would change everything?
3.Is it posslble that there is something we do not fully understand about ourselves, about our own life and it's purpose, the understanding of which would shift our reality and alter our experience for the better, forever?
4.Who am I?
5. Where am I?
6. Why am I where I am?
7. What do I intend to do about that?

These are pretty deep questions, and one's that most people shy away from. Neale takes time to provide his answer to each question, and encourages us to take time and come up with our own answers.
He also provides action steps to take to bring us closer to revolution and evolution. A few of these are:

Ask yourself the seven simple questions repeatedly
Participate in the world discussion at the Global Conversation website
Use social media to spread the word
Change starts with you
Make an actual list of "Things I Know About God" and "Things I Know about Life.
