你以前告訴過我說，實際上，我不是一個身體。你說我擁有一個身體，而「我是誰」並非一個身體(Who I Am is not a body)。
我很高興你記得這點。這是關於「你真正的自己」你們可以獲得之最重要的單一項信息(It is the most important single piece of information you could ever receive about your Self)，你可以與任何人分享這信息。
其他維度中的每個生命體，都認為自己是一個「宇宙中單一體能量之基礎本質」的散發物(an emanation of the Essential Essence)。或者，用我們在這對話中從頭到尾所使用的詞，也是一個你可能較能夠認同的詞：一個「靈魂」(a soul)。
尼爾：我懂了，當我越能夠理解我是一個「處於身體的靈魂」，而不是一個「有個靈魂的身體」(being a soul with a body and not a body with a soul)，我就越能夠以一種所有覺知的生命被邀請活出的生活，只要明白和擁抱我的真實身份(True Identity)。
摘自《與神對話 4》第 24章
Neale: You've described how Highly Evolved Beings from Another Dimension move from the physical to the metaphysical and back again at will. Then you've said that we do the same.
Neale: Well, not many human beings experience that they do the same. We're born – or as you put it, we "embody” – when we do. We don't experience having any control over that. And we die when we die. We have no control over that, either.
That would be incorrect.
Neale: Okay, it's true that some people die by their own hands, so they did exert control over when they died, but they certainly had no control over when they were born.
You will continue to imagine that all of this is true about both what you call your "birth" and your "death" so long as you think of yourself as a body.
Neale: You have told me before, actually, that I am not a body. You have said that I have a body, but that Who I Am is not a body.
I am happy that you have remembered this. It is the most important single piece of information you could ever receive about your Self, and that you could ever share with anyone.
Each entity in the Other Dimension thinks of itself as an emanation of the Essential Essence. Or, using the word that we’ve employed so far throughout this dialogue, and one that you may be able to relate to better: a soul.
And so you see that you are not "far afield" in exploring this. In fact, this is central to the larger discussion about what it would look like for humans to model their life on the lives of Highly Evolved Beings.
So use what we're looking at now to create a larger context for what's already been shared here about the possibilities for humanity's tomorrow.
Neale: Perfect. All right. I can see the connection. You want me to understand that it is because they know themselves to be what we call "souls" that Highly Evolved Beings from Another Dimension experience that they can embody at will, that they never die, that their purpose and only desire is to express and experience Divinity, that there is nothing they need, nothing they own, nothing over which they have stewardship that they will not share, nothing they will not do for those they love – and no one they do not love.
What a wonderful summary. You've really pulled this all together now. Good for you.
Neale: I know that the more I can understand about being a soul with a body and not a body with a soul, the more I can live the life that all sentient beings are invited to live, by simply knowing and embracing their True Identity.
