Honest to God
"Nobody tells the truth about anything anymore. Not anything important. Everybody's lying to everybody else, and everybody knows it." With these words, two great figures in the emerging culture of consciousness begin a searingly powerful dialog about the practical applications of honesty in our everyday lives. Neale Donald Walsh, five times New York Times bestselling author of the book series Conversations with God, and Brad Blanton, noted seminar leader and bestselling author of the Radical Honesty books, here speak with one voice about the new spiritual revolution and its application to both personal and political life.
This book shows the absolute necessity for individual and social transformation and the absolute necessity for honesty in order to bring it about. Climbing down from the ivory tower of philosophers to tackle the problems that vex real people - lying about income taxes, a spouse's infidelity, a terminal diagnosis for a parent or child, the sudden loss of a job, the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks - the authors give us a blueprint for living fully, authentically and honestly in a world full of lies.
And they fearlessly confront the changes we need in governance to deal with the social tragedies that focus the attention of today's world. Their message of honesty offers real hope. Yet it does not gloss over the courage and conviction required to make lasting changes. The authors show that just as great personal tragedy often sparks positive growth if we're willing to face it, great social tragedy can also serve as a pivotal opportunity for positive social transformation.
