Neville Goddard’s Library Of Books
Neville Goddard was born in Barbados on February 19, 1905, to Joseph Nathaniel and Wilhelmina Goddard. He immigrated to New York City c. 1922, where he initially worked as a ballet and ballroom dancer. In 1931, he began to study under an Ethiopian rabbi named Abdullah, who introduced him to Kabbalah
Neville Goddard teaches us that the human creates reality just by imagining rather than trying to change outside circumstances, that it is only the creation of the mind of what you desire, as well as everything you see, is created by the mind first whether you are conscious of it or not. IMAGINATION IS YOUR PERSONAL GOD.
Shakti & Shakta
Sir John Woodroffe, who wrote under the pseudonym of Arthur Avalon, was a Western scholar in the best traditions who brought important Hindu texts and teachings to the West, including the classic work on Kundalini yoga, The Serpent Power. His books were published to the public domain.
In Shakti and Shakta, Arthur Avalon explores the teachings of the “Bharata Dharma,” the common thread of tradition that links Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, as they relate to the divine feminine, expressed as “Shakti” or power in contrast to “Shiva” or unchanging consciousness.

The Florence Scovel Shinn Collection
Florence Scovel Shinn was born September 24, 1871 in Camden, New Jersey and she was an American artist and book illustrator who became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer in her middle years.
In New Thought circles, Shinn is best known for her first book, The Game of Life and How to Play It (1925). She expressed her philosophy as:
The invisible forces are ever working for man who is always “pulling the strings” himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract.
-The Game of Life, Florence Scovel Shinn
Her books put forward New Thought beliefs, with the use of Biblical references, all presented in short, succinct chapters.
The Hermetic Collection
Hermeticism or Hermetism is a philosophical and religious system based on the purported teachings of Hermes Trismegistus (a Hellenistic conflation of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth).
These teachings are contained in the various writings attributed to Hermes (the Hermetica), which were produced over a period spanning many centuries (c. 300 BCE – 1200 CE) and may be very different in content and scope.
The texts now known as the Corpus Hermeticum are dated by modern translators and most scholars to the beginning of the second century or earlier, The text “The Kybalion” is dated to 1908 and penned by an anonymous author “The Three Initiates”, and The Emerald tablets also known as the Smaragdine Tablet or the Tabula Smaragdina, is a compact and cryptic Hermetic text. It was highly regarded by Islamic and European alchemists as the foundation of their art. The text of the Emerald Tablet first appears in a number of early medieval Arabic sources, the oldest of which dates to the late eighth or early ninth century, yet its authorship is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus.
You are pure awareness. The world is an illusion, Nothing more. When you understand this fully, Desire falls away. You find peace. For indeed! There is nothing. (15.17)
The text is an instruction for achieving the self-realization and Oneness. The Ashtavakra Gita is a short treatise ascribed to the great sage Ashtavakra.
Composed between 500-400BC, though some claim it was written later, either in the eighth century by a follower of Shankara, or as late as the fourteenth century during a resurgence of Shankara’s teaching, The Ashtavakra Gita is written as a dialogue between King Janaka, the father of Sita, and his guru, Ashtavakra.
Gibran Khalil Gibran was born on January 6, 1883, to a Maronite Christian family in Lebanon. A quiet, sensitive young boy, he displayed an early artistic disposition, and a love for nature that became evident in later works. His early education was sporadic, although he received informal lessons from a local doctor.
Kahlil Gibran moved to the United States in 1895, he began writing newspaper columns and books, drawing attention for his prose poems. In 1912 Gibran published the novella al-Ajniha al-mutakassira (Broken Wings). He had an exhibition of
his paintings in late 1914, although by then his Symbolist-influenced style was becoming outdated in the art world..
Gibran wrote his most famous work, The Prophet (1923), making him the third-best-selling poet of all time.
Centered on the character of Almustafa, a holy man, set to return home after 12 years in exile, the book expounds on matters of love, sorrow, charity, parenting, and religion in 26 poetic essays. The Prophet quickly sold out its first edition and continued selling steadily, giving Gibran his first taste of widespread fame
ADVANCED LESSONS IN ABSOLUTE SCIENCE
10 mail order lessons of New Thought teachings by Della Marie Pence. The term “demonstration” is now replaced with “manifestation”, but in 1933 when these lessons took place the word demonstration was still in use. These teachings are now called “The Law of Assumption.
Advanced lessons, is a historical mail order correspondence course in the New Thought movement, and the law of attraction. The New Thought movement (also Higher Thought) is a spiritual movement that coalesced in the United States in the early 19th century. New Thought was seen by its adherents as succeeding “ancient thought”, accumulated wisdom and philosophy from a variety of origins, such as Ancient Greek, Kabbalistic, Roman, Egyptian (hermeticism), Chinese, Taoist, Vedic, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures. New Though is a belief system, primarily based on oneness consciousness, and its implications for human living as it relates to the correction of thought patterns. New Thought thought about the interaction among thought, belief, consciousness in the human mind, and the effects of these within and beyond the human mind.
Della Marie Pence, though relatively unknown today, was a master teacher, and compared to her contemporary New Thought teachers, she stands out in both simplicity and applicable teachings. Her teachings belong side by side with Florence Scovel Shinn and Neville Goddard.
As A Man Thinketh is
As A Man Thinketh is an essay and self-help classic, which argues that the key to mastering your life is harnessing the power of your thoughts and helps you cultivate the philosophy and attitude of a positive, successful person. The law of assumption made easy. A must read, for very Neville Goddard fan.
also known locally as “Lal Ded ” 1320–1392), was a Kashmiri mystic and liberated saint, of the Kashmir Shaivism school of Hindu philosophy.
Lal Ded’s works were first recorded in writing in the twentieth century, and have been frequently republished since, in Kashmiri as well as in translation. In 1914, Sir George Grierson, commissioned a copy of Lal Ded’s vakhs. A written record of the vakhs was unavailable at the time, and one was prepared by transcribing an oral narration of the vakhs performed by Dharma-dasa Darwesh, a story-teller residing in Gush, Kashmir. This manuscript was translated in English by Grierson. Following his translation, a number of English translations have been produced, by Pandit Ananda Koul (1921), Sir Richard Carnac Temple (1924).
She was the creator of the style of mystic poetry called vatsun or Vakhs, literally “speech” (from Sanskrit vaak).
The first written record of Lal Ded’s life is contained in the Tadhkirat-ul-Arifin (1587), a collection of biographies of saints and religious figures written by Mulla Ali Raina, and followed by an account of her life in Baba Daud Mishkati’s Asrar ul-Akbar (1654). In these texts, Lal Ded is described as a mystic saint, appearing in the forest to travellers
