Humanity’s Team

Neale Donald Walsch

Humanity is facing its moment of truth. We are in the midst of a genuine crisis. Right now. Not in some far off, distant future, but right now.

This is an extraordinary world we live in, but if we are not careful, we are going to destroy it. At the very least we will terribly disrupt, if not completely end, life as we know it. There is no- need for us to do that. There is no reason to. Yet the direction in which we are going is taking us right there.

The crisis humanity is facing is not a political crisis, it is not an economic crisis, and it is not a military crisis–yet we continue to try to solve it with political, economic, and military means.

The crisis humanity faces today is a spiritual crisis, and it can only be resolved by spiritual means.

That is where we come in: Humanity’sTeam is a member-based organization of worldwide proportion that is growing every day and gathering the strength and force that only large numbers and massive energy can produce. Its global activities are based on the messages in the Conversations with God series of books.

  • It seeks to change the world by creating the space of possibility for a New Spirituality to emerge upon the earth.

  • It proposes a spirituality that enlarges and enhances humanity’s current beliefs about God and about Life in a way that could change forever how we live with each other, bringing peace and harmony to our planet at last.

The idea behind this New Spirituality is to bring God back to life. Right now it feels as if God is far away from life, as if God has nothing to do with it.

The New Spirituality says that God is not separate from anything–and neither are we. Humanity´sTeam seeks to bring God back to Life by placing spiritual activists on the ground around the globe, working in the political, economic, religious, educational and social arenas to produce here-and-now experiences and real-world outcomes that reflect its simple message: “There is another way.”

There is another way to do politics, another way to do economics, another way to do religion and education and social interactions of all kinds – a way that eliminates ruthless competition as a means of surviving, violence as a means of control, killing as a means of conflict resolution, and the empowerment of some through the disempowerment and oppression of others.

Life does not have to be this way. There is another way. Yet changing the way we experience ourselves and Life will take an enormous act of collective will.

It is the intention of Humanity’sTeam to create that.

ORGANIZING ON A WORLDWIDE BASIS

If you desire, as do we, for people everywhere to be able to experience at last the peace and the harmony, the safety and security, the abundance and the joy that has always been life’s greatest promise, you are now invited to actively assist in producing that outcome.

For those of us whose lives have been deeply touched by Conversations with God, the rapid dissemination of this material is the place we choose to begin.

We know that putting the With God book–and especially the latest and most important of these, The New Revelations and Tomorrow’s God – into the hands of as many people as possible can change the world, because the With God books contain messages that offer workable alternatives to humanity’s most prevalent beliefs – beliefs that continue to create its most persistent problems.

We also know that we can do a great deal more than simply share the message.

The New Revelations invites us all to inspire the world by being the change we wish to see.

It offers us specific action steps allowing us to achieve these goals. It invites us to put our spiritual truth into action by becoming Spiritual Activists of the first rank, ending our days sitting on the sidelines of local, national and international affairs and joining forces to create a newer world.

Someone said to me recently, “The civil are not organized, and the organized are not civil.” It is high time that people of high purpose became highly organized.

I am talking here about organization on a worldwide basis to produce a specific result. And the result I propose? Peace on earth, goodwill to humans everywhere.

Yes, this has been proposed many times before. We’ve called for it and we’ve prayed for it and we’ve put the sentiment on our holiday greeting cards for generations. And still we have failed to achieve it. And so, some may think that it is impossible to achieve. Yet I’m on the side of Albert Einstein, who observed, “If it’s not impossible to do, there’s no point in doing it.”

Humanity’sTeam seeks to render the impossible possible, to render the undoable doable, to make the unthinkable thinkable, and to turn the unimaginable into the imaginable once again. This is our calling, this is our purpose, this is our gargantuan agenda. Yet that agenda is not bigger than the human heart, and its size is a tiny speck compared to the human soul.

HUMANITY IS CALLING TO ITSELF NOW

The Soul of Humanity calls now to the heart and to the mind of humanity:

Is it time yet? Have we had enough yet?

Have we had enough of the arguing and the fighting and the killing and the war? Have we had enough of the sadness and the suffering and the turmoil and the fear?

Are we ready yet? Are we ready to look at why things are the way they are, why this is the way they have always been, and what it will take to change things?

The Soul of Humanity calls to us, Is it time yet? Are we ready yet?

And the Soul of Humanity asks, If this is not what any of us want, why is this what all of us have?

Then the Soul of Humanity cries out, Who is on Humanity’s Team?

And our answer is that we are.

And though we may be outnumbered, with those who oppose humanity’s grandest dream on every side, and those who block us from our greatest vision on every horizon, and those who stand in the way of our taking the highest road on every path, we swear that we will yet find our way.

We will find our way to peace on earth, goodwill to humans everywhere–and we will find our way because we will make our way.

For what the world needs now is not a peacekeeping force, but a peacemaking force. And that is what we intend to be. We intend to help humanity help itself, to make peace at last–peace in each human heart, and peace in the collective experience of us all.

There is a place for you on Humanity’sTeam. I ask you to claim that place now. Without you there is little we can do. With you, there is little we cannot do.


Yes, I would like to join Humanity’s Team.
