That's a gorgeous (& very authentic) clip Manyana, thanks for posting. I also love how NDW listens with his whole body... yum.
But still an "he's out there" concept of God right? A personification of Reality?
I like Webby's answer to this. "Walsh's God is his own true nature and essence interacting with his human experience."
I can comfortably 'hear' what NDW's 'god' has to say, he's funny, irreverent, wise and wonderful and NDW is a good listener & responder. That's not to say that I 'adopt' him as my god, and nor do either of them ask you/me to. NDW just shares his conversations in yes a him-me way, mostly I think (having read them and seen him in person) because maybe... (my view only) NDW likes his humanness, likes his flaws and his vulnerabilities, possibly even because it breaks down some of the separation theology between people.
When I saw him he explained that he is/everything is 'an aspect of divinity'
Divinity is merely wisdom & clarity in all of creation.
We are in the realm of the physical because divinity seeks to know itself experientially through the expression of life - through you, as you, for you.
Being while doing is one of his mantras - obviously from that clip above that he sometimes forgets - in essence it's pretty much the same message as ET in terms of being in states of acceptance, enjoyment &/or enthusiasm - all expressions of wisdom & clarity in the present moment.
He also posed that we've created the separation theology creating the separation between the divine that is us, and the divine that is other/s.
When he asked himself Who Am I? after a hilarious chronological list (in his teens he was his hair, @ 21 he was his car, @ 30 he 'knew' he was his women, in his 40s he heard he was his job - he'd 'made it' he was now his job.... in his 50s he realised he was not his hair, car, women, job his answer was I am God/Love/Creation, and as this 'ambassador' I have the full authority of divinity itself.
Which is when he mentioned 'free will' merely being an agreement that no one else is going to choose (that within our power & authority to choose) for you. "I would not presume to choose for you." as the true meaning of us having 'free will'.
He says such wonderful things as 'honesty, is the highest form of love'. He says wonderful things about what is love, and what it is misunderstood to be or to mean 'love' - for that I adore Don Miguel Ruiz's definition - 'love is the equilibrium of gratitude & generosity'.
I would also stay with Ruiz for his 5th Agreement in terms of holding awareness - our wisdom & clarity when looking at how others interpret things - Ruiz: Be sceptical, but listen.
True scepticism is open minded, curious, willing to explore, willing to allow - to take it back to ET - in acceptance, enjoyment &or enthusiasm.
These topics of divinity, of god, of belief systems, they are certainly topics one could get their knickers in a knot over - --- but inside it all is another aspect of divinity. Awareness knows this. And with love - gratitude & generosity - we can be at peace with it and ... still choose for ourself how we express our own particular aspect of divinity
