你們在這星球上並不是要以你的身體來產生任何東西。你們在這個星球上是要以你的靈魂來產生一些東西。你的身體只不過單純地是你靈魂的工具，你的頭腦是令身體做事的力量(Your body is simply and merely the tool of your soul. Your mind is the power that makes the body go.)。因此， 你在此所擁有的是個有力的工具，用來創造靈魂之所欲(soul’s desire)。
尼爾：等一下！我記得你不久前說過靈魂在尋求成為你(the soul is seeking to be You)。
確實如此。我是起點和終點。那並非只是一句美麗的說詞，或一個俏皮的觀點。那是被說出的真相(That was Truth expressed. 被表達出來的真理)。
是的——然後靈魂會產生出正確而完美的情境狀態，以讓你在其中創造那(你靈魂選擇要體驗的)being狀態的經驗。所以說，沒有一件發生在你身上或經由你發生的事，不是為了「你自己的最高利益」而發生的（nothing happens to you or through you that is not for your own highest good）是真實的。
摘自《與神對話 I 》第12章
You are not on this planet to produce anything with your body. You are on this planet to produce something with your soul. Your body is simply and merely the tool of your soul. Your mind is the power that makes the body go. So what you have here is a power tool, used in the creation of the soul's desire.
Neale: What is the soul's desire?
Indeed, what is it?
Neale: I don't know. I'm asking You.
I don't know. I'm asking you.
Neale: This could go on forever.
Neale: Wait a minute! A moment ago You said the soul is seeking to be You.
So it is.
Neale: Then that is the soul's desire.
In the broadest sense, yes. But this Me it is seeking to be is very complex, very multi-dimensional, multi-sensual, multi-faceted. There are a million aspects to Me. A billion. A trillion. You see? There is the profane and the profound, the lesser and the larger, the hollow and the holy, the ghastly and the Godly. You see?
Neale: Yes, yes, I see… the up and the down, the left and the right, the here and the there, the before and the after, the good and the bad…
Precisely. I am the Alpha and the Omega. That was not just a pretty saying, or a nifty concept. That was Truth expressed.
So, in seeking to be Me, the soul has a grand job ahead of it; an enormous menu of beingness from which to choose. And that is what it is doing in this moment now.
Neale: Choosing states of being.
Yes—and then producing the right and perfect conditions within which to create the experience of that. It is therefore true that nothing happens to you or through you that is not for your own highest good.
Neale: You mean my soul is creating all of my experience, including not only the things I am doing, but the things that are happening to me?
Let us say that the soul leads you to the right and perfect opportunities for you to experience exactly what you had planned to experience. What you actually experience is up to you. It could be what you planned to experience, or it could be something else, depending upon what you choose.
