GET READY FOR 2012, 2017, 2023, 2030 and THE GREAT BEYOND!
This discussion class is being made available through the Prescott, Arizona, OLLI department at Yavapai College (Office in Building 31). The facilitator, Rev. John M. Kohlenberger, has been a nature lover, healer and artist, of one sort or another, through out all of this life and several others. He will be sharing the wealth of his energy, knowledge, wisdom and talents with you at each presentation.
After the formal 6 week class session at the college, the discussion may continue informally at our Saturday Coffee Sessions (click on "Conversations" in the left hand menu bar) and/or at our Services or Circles at Creekside Center, near the college, in Prescott.
As John's own Higher Self has said: "GOD IS Alive and hiding in each one of us". This and other classes may help you find the divinity of that same Living Spirit that exists within you. .
Let's explore Life, Death, the Inter-between and The Great Beyond, togethjer!
A PERSONAL NOTE:
Why would I even consider facilitating such an OLLI Class such as this ... for "no pay"
The truth is that I feel very much like Neal, himself, describes on page 286:
This Book, "has given me some wonderful spiritual insights and deeper understandings andawarenesses that have brought me comfort, and that I hope bring comfort to many others - especially to people who are dealing with the death of a loved one, or those who themselves are approaching death." I do this because I want to share this loving view of creation.
A Quote from page 217 - Everlasting Life at Work ... in a nut shell!
"You are continually in the act of creation, in life and in death. I have explained to you many times now how creation occurs. What it would be beneficial for you to understand is that it occurs continuously. That is, it never stops. Every thought, word, and deed is creative. Everyvibration released from the Core of Your Being recreates you, and your entire reality, anew. And you are being changed in every single moment. Your future is produced in tiny increments, not in one fell swoop or with one major decision. It is the increments to which you must pay attention. Then the “major moments” and “monumental decisions” will take care of themselves. Death and birth are the biggest acts of creation because these are the moments in the Eternal Life Cycle when Essential Energy transmutes itself to produce specific manifestations in the spiritual realm (at death) or in the physical realm (at birth).
This is really getting to be an amazing discussion. First we got into perception theory and quantum physics, then superstring theory and metaphorical metaphysical cosmology and now we’re into alchemy! Whew."
This is a continuing class in discussing the uncommon dialogs found in Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God books.We hope that in this class, you will also engage in conversations with your fellow OLLI students, so tyhat you may come closer to finding your truths.
Who is Neale Donald Walsch and why did he write these books?
If you have seen the movie, "Conversations with God", you have seen how Neal was down and out, living with the street people in a park, when after much soul searching and praying to a God that he did not know if it even existed, started hearing "answers" to his questions about life.Then, following the advice of his new-found girl friend, he then started writing this material down.In terms of parapsychology, this is a form of automatic writing.
Neal wrote and wrote, almost giving up several times and finally, following the advice of his girl friend and a few other friends he was developing, he submitted his material to publishers.Finally, when he was about to again give up, one of them agreed to publish "Book 1".Books 2 and 3 of his "uncommon dialog" series followed within a few years.
Neale Donald Walsch and the OLLI Program
The OLLI Program has offered classes covering the original trilogy of "Conversations with God" (Books 1, 2 & 3) and may cover these again, according to popular demand, in the future.
This book is number 9 in his series of "channeled" books, created over 12 year.Thus, if you find trouble understanding this material, you may find it helpful to go back to Book 1, especially as that discussion group is offered at OLLI Prescott.Other books that may be offered, in this series, may include, "Friendship with God", "Communion with God" and others, as desired by the friends and supporters of OLLI.
