Conversation with God

I do not see myself as a religious person. I do not actively practise any religion, and I put no value in the fact that I chose to go through the rituals of both baptism and confirmation in the Danish protestant church. I do however, know some people who, although they do not practise a specific religion, characterise themselves as religious.

About a year ago, I was for the first time introduced to the book "Conversation with God" by Neale Donald Walsch. It is the first of a series of books in which Walsch asks questions and God answers.

I immediately liked the book. The style is straightforward, the chapters are short, it is written in colloquial English, and even though I disbelieve and even disagree with many of the facts and arguments presented in the book, I must say that I love the recurring theme and message:
  • You are the creator of your own reality

In my opinion it is a message that you can embrace or deny, regardless of your overall conception of religion or belief. If you read it, please tell me what you think.
