Annabelle:  Aha!

Neale: Truly revealing, isn’t it?

Annabelle:  Well, if I heard my own voice telling me things like, “You’ve got it all wrong about me;” “The universe is always conspiring in our favor;” and “Love is the answer,” I’d probably think I’d forgotten to turn off the Psychic Channel or something.  Don’t get me wrong, though.  I definitely believe God speaks to us.  He just doesn’t contradict himself.  Your teaching goes against so much of what is in the Bible, Neale.  And that’s God’s primary means of communicating with us.

Neale:  Well, God did say we had it all wrong. 

Annabelle:  Well, I do like the fact that God reached down to you in your suffering and showed you mercy.  You definitely have a rags to riches tale.  But if we’re all wrong, doesn’t that mean you’ve got it wrong, too, Neale?

Neale:  Well, I was wrong.  But then God gave me the answers to all of life’s questions.  And what he told me was that we’re all our own rule makers.  He said that we just need to break free from ourselves.

Annabelle:  And how does one break free from oneself, Neale?

Neale:  Ohhhmmm…….ohhhhhmmm…..

Annabelle:  Neale?

Neale:  Ohhhhmmm…ohhhhmmm…..

Annabelle:  Folks, I believe Neale might be getting another transmission from God.  Neale?  Neale?  Is God speaking again, even though it’s not 4:31 a.m.?  And can you tell us what he’s saying?

Neale:  (snapping out of his trance) Yes, yes, I can.  I got every word.  God is saying, “I don’t want anything for you except for you to be happy.  I want for you what you want for you – nothing more.”

Annabelle:  Well, gosh, Neale.  That’s easy.  I’d like a $1.5 million dollar book contract like you, without any effort at all.

Neale:  Ah, but you see, you mustn’t worry about making a living.  Do whatever you love – nothing else. 

Annabelle:  But I didn’t love watching your film, Neale – and that’s what I do for a living.  I watch bad films, and the occasional good one.  And the problem is that your film reminded me of a video shot by people high on drugs using 70s technology.  People who had never made a movie in their entire lives, you know?  Infomercials, definitely – but not movies.

Neale:  But did it change your life?

Annabelle:  It made me want to change the channel.

Neale:  You see?  Do what you love.  Change that, and you will be rich.  Riches always follow spiritual enlightenment, you see.

Annabelle:   But what about all of my writer friends who aren’t rich?  They’re doing what they love, and they’re both successful and happy.  But they don’t earn much at all.  What about all the people serving the homeless who barely make enough to survive?  The artists?  The teachers?  The stay-at-home moms?

Neale:  They’ve got it all wrong.  They’ve got God wrong.

Annabelle:  Hmmmm.  So what does it mean to get it right?

Neale:  The masters are those who have chosen to make a life – not a living.

Annabelle:  Now is this God speaking or you, Neale?

Neale:  We are all one.  There is no separation.

Annabelle:  I see.  Well, there you have it, folks.  Your opportunity to get real with Neale.  And who knows?  Maybe you’ll become one of the many glassy-eyed people in his infomercial, I mean movie, who raves about his book.

Neale:  Yes, do buy my book.  And my video.  And, don’t forget “Indigo” – the film I made back in 2004 with my good buddy, director Stephen Simon.  It’s about a new generation of children who have indigo life auras that represent their chakra abilities to heal others.  Powerful stuff.

Annabelle:  Fascinating, Neale.

Neale:  Call me Moses.
