There is no error in God’s code. We have been made in His image, in divine perfection, and an acknowledgment that any perceived errors or disharmony in our lives are a result of human interaction rather than a flaw in the divine plan. The idea that “everyone is yourself pushed out” implies that our experiences are reflections of our internal state, and conflicts arise from within ourselves rather than external sources.

Evil is unreal and leaves no stain

FLorence Scovel Shinn

The emphasis on divine harmony existing in every relationship underscores the notion that God’s love is ever-present, even in the face of human imperfections and actions. Constant, peaceful and eternal. A rejection of the concept that “God creates or allows evil” reinforces the idea that love is the foundational force in existence, and we are merely interfering in its perfect flow.

For we are God’s handiwork

Ephesians 2

The call to see others through the eyes of God, to recognize the inherent goodness and divinity in everyone, is expressed through the notion of “fearfully and wonderfully made.” This suggests that viewing others with love and understanding, transcending our flawed perceptions, is a way to align ourselves with the divine perspective. EIYPO becomes EIGPO (Everyone is GOD pushed out)

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us 

1 John 4.10

Ultimately, EIYPO is a shift in perception, encouraging MANIFESTERS to move beyond fear-based manipulation or domination tactics (the common EIYPO interpretation) and to approach relationships with love and a recognition of the inherent divinity in oneself and others, EIGPO.

Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are

Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real

In todays world, media is dominated by headlines propelled by uncertainty and fear. There “seems” to be a pervasive force shaping our reality for us. From the 2020 pandemic to geopolitical conflicts, fear has taken center stage, permeating every aspect of our lives. But we and shift our perspective and chose faith. There was a time before media, before internet, tv and radio news, and I like to think that fears were more real and less imagined then. I also like to think that if something dangerous happened then, you either dies or you made it, and if you made it you moved on. Not anymore. It is like we are all stuck in potential danger all the time, but rarely real danger, and never do we seem to “make it”. The other shoe never drops. The heightened stress level has become chronic.

Fear: The Real Virus

The pandemic not only brought about a health crisis but also an epidemic of fear. Media narratives, more obviously than ever were driven by sensationalism, and if we never noticed it before, most of us did then, that media have played a significant role in amplifying ALL fear since forever. The constant barrage of alarming news and the relentless propagation of worst-case scenarios ARE overwhelming. Fear very quickly became the real virus, infecting minds and hearts. You were ther, you know what happened to people. Are you one of them? Are you living in fear? It is time to get bold and break off that mindset of fear.

Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” You do not fight against your problem; your problem will only live as long as you are conscious of it. Take your attention away from your problem and the multitude of reasons why you cannot achieve your ideal. Concentrate your attention entirely upon the thing desired.

Neville Goddard (your faith is your fortune)

Fear: The Real War

Again and again, the world has witnessed conflicts that have sparked new fears. The Russian-Ukrainian war and the Israel-Hamas conflict are reminders of the fragility of global peace. Fear is the real war, dividing nations down to our very communities. it’s essential to recognize the power fear holds over us. It is time to break off that fear and walk boldly in faith, in our choses state of LOVE, and confidence. Peace begins at home, and not “out there”.

You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf


Fear Is a Liar

“Fear is a liar,” as the saying goes. The Bible reminds us that perfect love casts out fear, and faith is the antidote to the lies fear whispers. While the world will always present us with reasons to fear, and we ill always have a choice: to succumb to the darkness of fear or to step into the light of faith. We have a choice to occupy any state. The state of perfect love is ready and waiting for us to step into right now.

Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live.

Neville Goddard

Faith: The Only Answer

In the face of uncertainty and adversity, faith is our only anchor. “Even if” is a mantra, replace it for the “what if” scenarios that plague your mind. No more what if’s, just Even if. Faith chooses to believe that the state of the Divine transcends circumstances.

If you judge after appearances, you will continue to be enslaved by the evidence of your senses.

Neville Goddard

Stepping into Supernatural Faith

The Law of Assumption teaches us that our beliefs shape our reality. Amidst media propaganda or conspiracy theories or the looming specter of economic collapse, or, or, or…. it’s crucial to remember that we cannot serve two masters. Faith and fear cannot coexist. It’s time to step into supernatural faith, trusting that, regardless of circumstances, what is promised will come to pass.

An awakened imagination works with a purpose. It creates and conserves the desirable, and transforms or destroys the undesirable.

Neville Goddard

What do you do when you feal fear?

Fear will always find new avenues to manifest itself. Whether it’s a health crisis, geopolitical conflicts, economic uncertainties, or your own PERSONAL circumstances, it doesn’t matter! There will always be something to be afraid of. You CAN NOT serve two masters. Our response to fear is within our control. By choosing a state of faith over a state of fear, we not only transform our perspective but also LITERALLY contribute to a world where love triumphs over the darkness of uncertainty. This is the only way to truly transform the world.

But you can’t hold on to one thing you now believe in as a power that controls your life and still hope to buy the pearl of great price.

Neville Goddard

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent


The Master Key System Part Three:


1. The necessary interaction of the conscious and subconscious mind requires a similar interaction between the corresponding systems of nerves. Judge Troward indicates the very beautiful method in which this interaction is affected. He says: The cerebro-spinal  system is the organ of the conscious mind, and the sympathetic is the organ of the subconscious. The cerebro-spinal is the channel through which we receive conscious perception from the physical senses, and exercise control over the movements of the body. This system of nerves has its center in the brain. 

2. The Sympathetic System has its center in a ganglionic mass at the back of the stomach known as the Solar Plexus, and is the channel of that mental action which unconsciously supports the vital functions of the body. 

3. The connection between the two systems is made by the vagus nerve, which passes out of the cerebral region as a portion of the voluntary system to the thorax, sending out branches to the heart and lungs, and finally passing through the diaphragm it loses its outer coating and becomes identified with the nerves of the Sympathetic System, so forming a connecting link between the two and making man physically a single entity. 

4. We have seen that every thought is received by the brain, which is the organ of the conscious; it is here subjected to our power of reasoning. When the objective mind has been satisfied that the thought is true it is sent to the Solar Plexus, or the brain of the subjective mind, to be made into our flesh, to be brought into the world as a reality. It is then no longer susceptible to any argument whatsoever. The subconscious mind cannot argue; it only acts. It accepts the conclusions of the objective mind as final. 

5. The Solar Plexus has been likened to the sun of the body, because it is a central point of distribution for the energy which the body is constantly generating. This energy is very real energy, and this sun is a very real sun, and the energy is being distributed by very real nerves to all parts of the body, and is thrown off in an atmosphere which envelops the body. 

6. If this radiation is sufficiently strong the person is called magnetic; he is said to be filled with personal magnetism. Such a person may wield an immense power for good. His presence alone will often bring comfort to the troubled minds with which he comes in contact. 

7. When the Solar Plexus is in active operation and is radiating life, energy and vitality to every part of the body, and to everyone whom he meets, the sensations are pleasant, the body is filled with health and all with whom he comes in contact experience a pleasant sensation. 

8. If there is any interruption of this radiation the sensations are unpleasant, the flow of life and energy to some part of the body is stopped, and this is the cause of every ill to the human race, physical, mental or environmental. 

9. Physical because the sun of the body is no longer generating sufficient energy to vitalize some part of the body; mental because the conscious mind is dependent upon the subconscious mind for the vitality necessary to support its thought, and environmental because the connection between the subconscious mind and the Universal mind is being interrupted. 

10. The Solar Plexus is the point at which the part meets with the whole, where the finite becomes Infinite, where the Uncreate becomes create, the Universal becomes individualized, the Invisible becomes visible. It is the point at which life appears, and there is no limit to the amount of life an individual may generate from this Solar center. 

11. This center of energy is Omnipotent because it is the point of contact with all life and all intelligence. It can therefore accomplish whatever it is directed to accomplish, and herein lies the power of the conscious mind; the subconscious can and will carry out such plans and ideas as may be suggested to it by the conscious mind. 

12. Conscious thought, then, is master of this sun center from which the life and energy of the entire body flows, and the quality of the thought which we entertain determines the quality of the thought which this sun will radiate, and the character of the thought which our conscious mind entertains will determine the character of the thought which this sun will radiate, and the nature of the thought which our conscious mind entertains will determine the nature of thought which this sun will radiate, and consequently will determine the nature of the experience which will result. 

13. It is evident, therefore, that all we have to do is let our light shine; the more energy we can radiate, the more rapidly shall we be enabled to transmute undesirable conditions into sources of pleasure and profit. The important question, then, is how to let this light shine; how to generate this energy. 

14. Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contracts it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom. 

15. It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life. 

16. When you find that you are really one with the Infinite power, and when you can consciously realize this power by a practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into possession of your birthright. 

17. It is our attitude of mind towards life which determines the experiences with which we are, to meet; if we expect nothing we shall have nothing; if we demand much we shall receive the greater portion. The world is harsh only as we fail to assert ourselves. The criticism of the world is bitter only to those who cannot compel room for their ideas. It is fear of this criticism that causes many ideas to fail to see the light of day. 

18. But the man who knows that he has a Solar Plexus will not fear criticism or anything else; he will be too busy radiating courage, confidence, and power; he will anticipate success by his mental attitude; he will pound barriers to pieces and leap over the chasm of doubt and hesitation which fear places in his path. 

19. A knowledge of our ability to consciously radiate health, strength and harmony will bring us into a realization that there is nothing to fear because we are in touch with Infinite Strength. 

20. This knowledge can be gained only by making a practical application of this information. We learn by doing; through practice the athlete becomes powerful. 

21. As the following statement is of considerable importance, I will put it in several ways, so that you cannot fail to get the full significance of it. If you are religiously inclined, I would say, you can let your light shine. If your mind has a bias towards physical science, I would say you can wake the Solar Plexus; or, if you prefer the strictly scientific interpretation, I will say that you can impress your subconscious mind. 

22. I have already told you what the result of this impression will be. It is the method in which you are now interested. You have already learned that the subconscious is intelligent and that it is creative, and responsive to the will of the conscious mind. What, then, is the most natural way of making the desired impression? Mentally concentrate on the object of your desire; when you are concentrating you are impressing the subconscious. 

23. This is not the only way, but it is a simple and effective way, and the most direct way, and consequently the way in which the best results are secured. It is the method which is producing such extraordinary results that many think that miracles are being accomplished. 

24. It is the method by which every great inventor, every great financier, every great statesman has been enabled to convert the subtle and invisible force of desire, faith and confidence into actual, tangible, concrete facts in the objective world. 

25. The subconscious mind is a part of the Universal mind. The Universal is the creative principle of the Universe, a part must be the same in kind and quality as the whole. This means that this creative power is absolutely unlimited; it is not bound by precedent of any kind, and consequently has no prior existing pattern by which to apply its constructive principle. 

26. We have found that the subconscious mind is responsive to our conscious will, which means that the unlimited creative power of the Universal Mind is within the control of the conscious mind of the individual. 

27. When making a practical application of this principle, in accordance with the exercises given in subsequent Parts, it is well to remember that it is not necessary to outline the method by which the subconscious will produce the results you desire. The finite cannot inform the Infinite. You are simply to say what you desire, not how you are to obtain it. 

28. You are the channel by which the undifferentiated is being differentiated, and this differentiation is being accomplished by appropriation. It only requires recognition to set causes in motion which will bring about results in accordance with your desire, and this is accomplished because the Universal can act only through the individual, and the individual can act only through the Universal; they are one.

 29. For your next exercise I will ask you to go one step further. I want you to not only be perfectly still, and inhibit all thought as far as possible, but relax, let go, let the muscles take their normal condition; this will remove all pressure from the nerves and eliminate that tension which so frequently produces physical exhaustion. ,

30. Physical relaxation is a voluntary exercise of the will and the exercise will be found to be of great value, as it enables the blood to circulate freely to and from the brain and body. 

31. Tension leads to mental unrest and abnormal mental activity of the mind; it produces worry, care, fear and anxiety. Relaxation is therefore an absolute necessity in order to allow the mental faculties to exercise the greatest freedom. 

32. Make this exercise as thorough and complete as possible, mentally determine that you will relax every muscle and nerve, until you feel quiet and restful and at peace with yourself and the world. 

33. The Solar Plexus will then be ready to function and you will be surprised at the result. 

We judge of a man’s wisdom by his hope, knowing that the perception of the inexhaustibleness of Nature is an immortal youth.



1. What system of nerves is the organ of the Conscious Mind? The Cerebro-spinal. 

2. What system of nerves is the organ of the subconscious mind? The sympathetic. 

3. What is the central point of distribution for the energy which the body is constantly generating? The solar plexus. 

4. How may this distribution be interrupted? By resistant, critical, discordant thoughts, but especially by fear. 

5. What is the result of such interruption? Every ill with which the human race is afflicted. 

6. How may this energy be controlled and directed? By conscious thought. 

7. How may fear be completely eliminated? By an understanding and recognition of the true source of all power. 

8. What determines the experiences with which we meet in life? Our predominant mental attitude. 

9. How may we awake the solar plexus? Mentally concentrate upon the condition which we desire to see manifested in our lives. 

10. What is the creative principle of the Universe? The Universal Mind.

Mind in itself is believed to be a subtle form of static energy, from which arises the activities called “thought,” which is the dynamic phase of mind. Mind is static energy, thought is dynamic energy—the two phases of the same thing.

Don’t make manifesting a battle

Don’t make manifesting a battle, or you will manifest a battle!

In yesterdays blog I talked about planting the right kind of seeds in the right kind of soil, that is, minding your intentions, and fostering a good mindset. Today, we’ll adress the problem of unwanted, unessesary, incessant or spiralling thoughts.

The key to successful manifestation is to foster a mental environment that supports your desires, allowing the positive seeds to grow and flourish while naturally overshadowing the unwanted ‘weeds’ of doubt and negativity. Engaging in a battle with unwanted thoughts, will NOT bring your manifestations to pass any sooner, rather it slows down your progress.

A Parable

“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ “ ‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’“ ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them.Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’ ”

Jesus Te Messiah

The parable provides an analogy to the seeds sown in our minds to come to Christ Consiousness, but of course the same rules apply to the practice of the Law of Assumption for manifestation.

Put down your weapons

In practical terms, this parable encourages a crucial understanding for manifesters: the importance of being mindful of the thoughts and ideas we allow to take root in our minds. The good seeds, representing positive, empowering thoughts aligned with your desired manifestations, need to be sown purposefully and nurtured. However, similar to the parable’s depiction, negative or contrary thoughts—referred to as ‘weeds’—might also take root unintentionally. It is HUMAN NATURE, and it is unavoidable, so don’t feel bad if you too are strugling with unwanted thoughts, but what do we do then?

Implementing this knowledge practically involves:

  1. Mindful Seed Sowing: Actively sow and nurture positive, empowering thoughts aligned with your desired manifestations. Just like the man sowing good seed in his field, consciously plant thoughts and beliefs that align with your desired reality.
  2. Guarding Your Mental Garden: While you’re focused on nurturing positive thoughts, recognize that negative or contradictory thoughts might also creep in. Similar to the weeds sowed among the wheat, these opposing thoughts can hinder your manifestations.
  3. Conscious Awareness: Continuously monitor your mental landscape, identifying and uprooting negative thoughts when they appear. This involves recognizing the weeds—unwanted thoughts that oppose your desires—and consciously working to replace them with positive, affirming beliefs.
  4. Patience and Non-Interference: The parable advises patience and non-interference in uprooting the weeds immediately, as it might “damage the growth of the wheat.” Similarly, in manifestation, rushing to eradicate negative thoughts might cause disruption or doubt in your positive beliefs. Practice patience and allow the positive manifestations to grow alongside, overshadowing the negative aspects. Thsi involves a method known as “Be Still And Know That I AM God”. In otherwords, notice, relax, accept, don’t stress, just see it for what it is and keep on keepin on.
  5. Focused Harvesting: Lastly, at the ‘harvest’—the fruition of your manifestationsacknowledge and separate the unwanted aspects from the desired ones. This might involve consciously letting go of the negative beliefs and focusing solely on the positive outcomes. It is a learning process, so when you see the negative manifestations, just let it go. Yes, it snuk in there, no it doesn’t matter, just let it go and focus on the good that also came along. In other words, and attitude of gratitude at this point will remove the fully grown and harvested weeds.

Burning the weeds of the mind

In the context of manifestation, the parable’s concept of burning the weeds and preserving the wheat symbolizes a significant strategy:

  1. Burning the Weeds: ‘Burning the weeds’ signifies consciously releasing or letting go of the negative, unwanted beliefs or thoughts that have grown alongside the desired manifestations. Acknowledge their presence without giving them power, and then deliberately release them. This process frees mental space, allowing room for the positive beliefs to flourish. Acceptance is the name of the game.
  2. Preserving the Wheat: Saving the ‘wheat’—the desired manifestations—involves consciously reinforcing and nurturing the positive beliefs, thoughts, and intentions. Bolster these positive beliefs. The idea is to continuously focus on and nurture the desired outcomes, allowing them to grow and flourish. Affirmations, scripting, imaginal scenes, and inner conversations are all examples of “preserving the wheat”.
  3. Reinforcement through Action: Beyond mental practices, taking tangible action aligned with your desired manifestations further cultivates the ‘wheat.’ This could involve making decisions, choices, or engaging in activities that reinforce the positive beliefs you wish to manifest. Actions serve as a means to affirm and strengthen the beliefs in desired outcomes in the physical realm.

“Be still, and know that I am God;

Law Versus Promise? Circumstantially motivated?

Law Versus Promise? Circumstantially motivated?

These following statements convey a shared theme regarding the resilience of the soul or consciousness.

The Bhagavad Gita verse emphasizes the soul’s indestructibility against external elements. The biblical passage in Romans contrasts attaining righteousness through faith versus works, suggesting that true fulfillment comes from faith or an inner connection rather than external practices.

Both highlight the significance of faith over external actions in spiritual attainment.

“Neither weapons can shred the soul, nor fire burn it. Water cannot wet it, nor wind dry it.”

The sentence from the Bhagavad Gita, spoken by Lord Krishna, aligns with another concept:

“Consciousness is never traumatized by trauma.”

The soul (consciousness) or God is eternally the same, it does not matter what your circumstances are.

Circumstances DON’T matter.

“What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; but the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal. Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone. As it is written:”

“See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who believes in him will never be put to shame”

This passage is from the book of Romans in the New Testament of the Bible, explaining that Gentiles, though not originally seeking righteousness, attained it through faith. However, the people of Israel, who sought righteousness through the law, did not achieve it because they pursued it through works and stumbled over the stumbling stone. The text speaks of a stone in Zion that causes people to stumble, yet those who believe in it will never be ashamed.

The take away here is that although you can do the works, and practice the law, but no matter how much work you do of your own accord, it is not until you give up doesrship to God that the works is done for you. Faith delivers. Every time.

Manifesting Improved Relationships: Simplified Steps

This is what 99% of you ask. Here it is AGAIN….

Let’s break it down into straightforward steps

Create a belief in the Law:

Start small. Internalize the belief in the law of manifestation with deliberate, achievable SMALLER manifestations. Things that don’t matter so much. Your belief in the process is crucial for larger manifestations. Think, “I believe this will happen, so I’ll assume it’s already done.”

Everyone is You Pushed Out (EIYPO):

Test and practice this concept. People manifest just like objects. It might feel harder, but that’s often due to our own resistance. Experiment and observe the changes. Remember, manifestations regarding people can be transient.

Choose Techniques that WORK FOR You:

Not all techniques work for everyone. Experiment and find what works for you. Some people find success with meditation sessions and imaginal scenes, some people make it click with self-hypnosis. Affirmations work well for me. Trust your process and believe you’re doing it right.

Understand Your Self-Concept:

Dear LORD STOP IT already with the “do I have to” You are not a toddler. YOUR self concept is EVERYTHING.

Realize that you are in control of your manifestations by strengthening your belief in the law. Work on improving your self-concept. If intrusive thoughts or negative self-talk trouble you, consider seeking help. A positive mindset is essential for effective manifestation. If you only do ONE THING, this is that thing.

Utilize Resources That Resonate:

Explore various resources to deepen your understanding. For me, Neville Goddard works, but for you it might be something completely different. It can be Joseph Murphy, of Gearge Haneel, or the Bible, or Florence Scovel Shinn. The point is, they are all right, and you WILL resonate with SOMEONE. Find what clicks for you, whether it’s specific authors, communities, or teachings. Embrace what resonates with you and helps you. Stop arguing with people abouth this, and just let it be about you.

Invest Time and Effort:

Manifestation takes YOUR WORK. There is no “it” out there, there is only your dedication and persistence. Be willing to put in the time and effort for the bottomline, very minimum amount of work. Seriously. If you haven’t done that, don’t go asking why “it” is not working. It is working, it is YOU that is not working. If you’re not ready to commit, reconsider your desire to manifest. Rome wasn’t built in a day; give your desires the time they need to manifest.

Focus on Doing the Work:

Stop seeking constant reassurance and validation from external sources. (FaceBook, Discord, Reddit) The true power lies in doing the internal work. Avoid over-reliance on forums or social media it is no different than going to psychics or getting a horospcepe done. This journey is personal, and only you can do the work. Do the work and witness the magic unfold. Be a doer of the word, not just a hearer.

Manifesting a specific person is about aligning your beliefs, thoughts, and actions. Trust the process and stay persistent on your journey towards manifesting your desired reality.

States & Assumptions | The Law Of Assumption

States & Assumptions | The Law Of Assumption

The key to creating the life that you desire is to “enter into a state of being that is in alignment with that desire.” Neville Goddard taught us to “assume that which you want to be”, and that if you don’t know how to get there, to imagine, and imagination will take you there. Go there in your imagination first.


BOTH the concept of STATES, and ASSUMPTION  is filled with confusion. 

And the elusive “raise your vibration” follows us like a plague from new age teachings. 

Neville says skip that, and just assume your state, but how, asks the newcomer. HOW do I assume a state?

 There is alway new  batches of people learning about the law, and a few years ago, I was part of the “newbie batch”. I remember how I struggled with these two concepts myself!

“I WANT to level up significantly. What is it that I am supposed to do?”

“I keep  learning but I JUST DON’T GET IT. I look around at it still looks just as dreary, nothing has changed. I ignore circumstances, I don’t react but WHY has nothing changed.”

You haven’t changed states.

You are manifesting from the old state, never going beyond it into the NEW, and if you do, it is for a moment, but you lose it quickly. Like  butterflies, you have to COMPLETELY leave the caterpillar behind. A new state is a whole new you.

Let’s change this today!


A state is a particular quality of consciousness or awareness that you inhabit. 

It is a mental and emotional state that is characterized by a certain set of beliefs, attitudes, and feelings. “Rich people are so arrogant and tone deaf to people’s suffering” THAT is a state, and it reveals that YOU do not feel yourself to be one of them, one of the rich people. That’s fine….unless…you are manifesting wealth. If you are, then you have to fully die to THAT state, the judgy state. Just like a butterfly has to fully die to being a caterpillar. It can;t be you anymore.

When you are in a particular state, you are in a vibrational frequency that attracts experiences and circumstances that match that state. That just goes with the territory, but you don’t have to worry about vibrations. The state has all that built into it anyway.

For example, if you are in a state of love, you will attract experiences and circumstances that reflect love. If you are in a state of fear, you will attract experiences and circumstances that scare you. If you are in a state of anger, you will attract plenty that makes you even more angry. In addition, you will INTERPRET everything to mean LOVE, or FEAR, or ANGER. But nothing actually  means anything. 

The state that you are in determines the reality that you experience.

Neville taught that by consciously choosing your state, you can create the reality that you desire. 

BUT…To do this, you must first learn to identify the state that is in alignment with your desired outcome. And you must understand the fact that you are always in a state. You are in a state right now.  When you are the person who has your desired outcome, HOW would your state be different? IF you desire wealth, but your current state is “struggling to make ends meet”, notice your thoughts and become curious about what your thoughts would be like IF you were already wealthy.

Then, decide, what state will help you manifest your goal, and deliberately change your thoughts. You must enter into that state by focusing your attention on thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that are consistent with that state. You would NOT think “wealthy people are so arrogant”, because you will know that wealthy people are like people are most. Different. You won’t imagine negative things about “wealthy people” at all, maybe you’ll have another group of people that you will stereotype, a group of people that are foreign to you.

By consistently inhabiting the state that is in alignment with your desired outcome,you will make that state your “most common dwelling place”, and this is what creates your world around you.

“I AM wealthy, poor, healthy, sick, free, confined were first of all impressions or conditions felt before they became visible expressions. Your world is your consciousness objectified. Waste no time trying to change the outside; change the within or the impression; and the without or expression will take care of itself. When the truth of this statement dawns upon you, you will know that you have found the lost word or the key to every door. I AM (your consciousness) is the magical lost word which was made flesh in the likeness of that which you are conscious of being.”

Neville Goddard

Here are some examples of states, just to get you to orient your awareness towards total and complete understanding.

  1. The state of love: This state involves feeling deep, unconditional love for oneself and others. To achieve this state, focusing on the feeling of love and directing it towards yourself and others. You can use affirmations, visualization, or any other technique that helps you connect with this feeling. The state of love wears rose colored glasses, everything you see is a “sign” of LOVE. The clouds in the sky are heart shaped, and everyday feels perfect.
  2. The state of abundance: This state involves feeling abundant in all areas of your life, including finances, relationships, health, and happiness. Fresh air, perfect synchronicities, smiling people…all is an indication of ABUNDANCE. What would you do now, how would you be, if you were abundant in money right now? How would you inhale? How would you view the smile of a stranger? How do you feel about the possibility of taking a long vacation overseas, or taking a cruise with a friend? How does it sound to buy a new car, what would you emphasize in your new car? 
  3. The state of health: This state involves feeling healthy and vibrant in mind, body, and spirit. Use any or all  techniques that help you connect with this feeling. Strength, vitality, the desire to go for a run, or the idea of staying up late with good friends. 
  4. The state of success: This state involves feeling successful in  your life, including career, relationships, and personal growth.The state of success is courageous, fearless, it LOVES to take risks and it envisions the end result of any challenge naturally. It sees the finished product, never the obstacles.
  5. The state of inner peace: This state involves feeling calm, centered, and at peace with yourself and the world around you. Being alone feels centered, good, and energizing, and likewise so does being surrounded with a crowd. Calm and stability, total comfort with or without. 

This is ALL that a state really is, it is so much simpler that we realize in the beginning of this learning curve. It is a state of MIND.

Now, it isn’t called the law of states, but rather, the law of assumption, and it turns out to be a law.

 It is not fantasy, and it is not spellcasting, wishful thinking, daydreaming or hoping. It is a universal law

The reason why it seems to NOT WORK in the beginning is because we make the mistake of believing in an outer force. Even after learning, there is still a bit of time that has to pass, before it seems to sink in. There IS no outer force. There is no IT that is supposed to work. It is only us. Us and our own assumption, and as you know, we are complex beings and our psyches are filled to the brim with contradictory assumptions. Clearing up the contradictions is most of the battle.

The word “assumption” has several meanings, including:

  1. Something taken for granted or accepted as true without proof.
  • Example: The assumption that everyone enjoys chocolate.
  1. A belief or hypothesis that is not based on fact.
  • Example: The assumption that the world is flat.
  1. The act of taking on a role or responsibility.
  • Example: When John retired, Sarah assumed his duties as manager.
  1. The act of taking possession or control of something.
  • Example: The assumption of power by the new government.
  1. An underlying principle or fundamental idea.
  • Example: The assumption of innocence until proven guilty.
  1. A supposition or guess made for the sake of argument.
  • Example: For the sake of argument, let’s make the assumption that the earth is the center of the universe.
  1. The act of taking something for oneself without permission or consent.
  • Example: The assumption of property by the thief.

Some specific examples that Neville Goddard used to illustrate the power of assumption and states:

  1. A man who wanted to be promoted to the position of Vice President of his company was already living in the assumption that he had the job. He would imagine his colleagues congratulating him on his promotion and feel the sense of satisfaction and pride that comes with it. He persisted in this assumption until he was actually offered the job.
  2. A woman who wanted to be married to a specific man was already living in the assumption that they were happily married. She would imagine the feeling of his wedding band on her finger, the warmth of his embrace, and the joy they shared as a couple. She persisted in this assumption until they were actually married.
  3. Another example Neville used was of a woman who wanted to sell her house quickly. She imagined the feeling of relief and joy that would come with a quick sale, and felt grateful for the sale as if it had already happened. She persisted in this assumption until she received an offer on her house and it sold quickly.

Mundaka Upanishad interpretation

The Third Mundaka: First Khanda


Two birds living together, each the friend of the other, perch upon the same tree. Of these two, one eats the sweet fruit of the tree, but the other simply looks on without eating.

The two birds are the Jiva and Isvara, both existing in an individual compared to a tree. They exist together as the reflection and the original. They both manifest themselves in different ways in every individual. From the characteristics of the Jiva it is possible to infer the nature of Isvara, and from the nature of Isvara it is possible to determine the potentialities of the Jiva. Both the Jiva and Isvara have a common substratum which is Brahman and which is the reality of both. The body is compared to a tree because it can be cut down like a tree. This tree is also called the Kshetra or the field of manifestation and action of the Kshetrajna or the knower of the field. The body is the field of action and experience and it is the fruit of actions done already.

That which distinguishes the Jiva from Isvara is the mind only. In fact, the mind itself constitutes the Jiva. It is the Jiva that is affected by Avidya, Kama and Karma. Because of the conjunction of consciousness with these limiting factors, it has to experience the results of its actions; but Isvara, who is not limited to any adjunct, has no actions whatsoever to perform, and so, no experience of the results of actions. The fruits enjoyed by the Jiva are of the nature of pleasure and pain, i.e., they are all relative experiences born of non-discrimination. The experience of Isvara is eternal and is of the nature of purity, knowledge and freedom. Relative experience is the effect of the presence of Rajas, but the character of Isvara is Sattva and, hence, there is no phenomenal experience for Him. He is in fact the director of both the agent of actions and the results of actions. Isvara’s activity consists in His mere existence. The value of His existence is greater than that of the activity of the whole universe. It is His existence that actuates the whole universe of manifestation.

Oneness and duality in Mundaka Upanishad


In the self-same tree the individual (bird) is drowned in grief because of delusion and impotency. When it beholds the other (bird), viz., the adorable Lord, it realises its own glory and gets freed from sorrow.

The grief of the Jiva is the result of its inability to live in conformity with the forms of the effects of unwise actions done in the past. Such thoughtless actions, no doubt, lead to their corresponding results and as they are not in tune with the law of Truth, they torment the individual in the form of unpleasant experiences. Without a relative experience the individual cannot live, and with every relative experience produced by unwisdom, fresh misery is added to the pre-existing lot. Thus, from the highest standpoint, the entirety of the experience of the individual consists of grief alone. Because of its confinement to the forms of its desires and actions, the Jiva feels itself to be impotent, confused and helpless. It is even made to feel that a particular experience to which it is connected is alone real and that there is no reality beyond it. Due to this, it is now and then connected with and separated from the objects of its desire. It is born and it dies, passing through several kinds of wombs in accordance with the kinds of its actions.

The freedom of the individual consists in the vision of the Lord Supreme Who is co-existent with it, in fact inseparable from it as its very Self. The realisation of Isvara is the same as the raising of the individual consciousness to the consciousness of Isvara. The Jiva ceases to exist the moment it realises Isvara. The glory of the real essence of the individual is known only when the veil covering it is removed. This is achieved in the realisation of God. The ultimate realisation is in the form of the identity of the Self with the Supreme Being. Here, the whole universe is realised to be the same as the essence of the spiritual infinite. This realisation puts an end to all kinds of imperfections and sorrows.

Spiritual teachings of Jiva and Isvara


When the knowing individual has the vision of the intelligent creator, the Lord, the Purusha, the Brahman which is the source of all, then it shakes off both merit and demerit, and having become taintless, attains to supreme equality with the Lord.

In this Mantra, the Lord is designated as having a golden hue, which means that His nature of Knowledge is eternally inherent in Him even as the colour of gold is something inherent in it. It points to the self-luminous nature of God, whose characteristics are imperishable, which fact is hinted at by the unaffected colour of gold. It is also said that the individual should have the fit perception, i.e., it should have the ability to perceive the universal Being. To the individual is attributed the quality of knowingness which is the knowledge of the Supreme Being achieved after the acquisition of the power of correct discrimination.

Divine knowledge is free from the conception of good and bad, because this knowledge is non-relative. It is an all-consuming wisdom in which relative natures or conceptions can have no value. Distinctions like virtue, vice, good, bad, high, low, etc., are made only as long as the all-comprehensive knowledge, which underlies all these distinctions, is not realised. The effects of merit and demerit are burnt up by the fire of knowledge, because these effects are only conceptual and not spiritual. They exist only as long as the mind exists. When the mind is transcended, they too are transcended. The whole universe stands transfigured in the Absolute. The Jiva becomes free from blemishes, attachments and sorrows, and gets unified with the Supreme Being. Equality with the Infinite is the same as identity with the Infinite, which is of the nature of non-duality, limitless and unsurpassable. Equality of objects which have different characteristics is only a mental imagination and not a fact. But the equality of identical natures encompassing the whole existence is the experience of an indivisible unified whole.

Transcending suffering in Mundaka Upanishad


In all beings this one supreme life manifests itself. Knowing this, the wise one does not speak of anything else. Having his sport in the Self, bliss in the Self, and action in the Self, he is the best among the knowers of Brahman.

One who realises this Supreme Being as one’s own Self, ceases from his natural sense-functions and puts an end to all speech unconnected with the Self. Rather, he does not speak at all. Speech is a manner of connecting one thing with another thing. In Self-realisation, the relationship of the subject with the object is transcended and all things become the Self Itself. Whenever there is a perception of duality, speech has got a value, but in non-duality all such relationships lose their value. Instead of the experiences of the external relationships, the knower has the experience of Self-identity. This experience of the Self is described in the form of finding everything that is found externally, in one’s own Self Itself. The statements regarding sporting in the Self or finding all bliss in the Self make it clear that the highest form of happiness is realised without any contact with any object or any condition. Real bliss is not the effect of either mental or physical contact, but is the result of the absence of all contacts. In short, bliss consists in the resolution of the very sense of objectivity into the conscious subject. The action of the knower consists in the knowledge of the Self. Self-delight itself is action for him. It is a simple mass of bliss that he experiences, unhampered by any function alien to the nature of the Self. Sankara points out that the action of the knower is of the nature of renunciation, meditation and wisdom.

The Mantra does not imply that the knower performs any function. It only glorifies the state of the realisation of the Self by resorting to figurative descriptions of his greatness. The possibility of the combination of action with knowledge is denied by the fact of his being the highest among the knowers of Brahman. The Brahma Varishtha is the one who is in the seventh state of knowledge where his ego is totally merged in the Absolute. It is quite evident that external bodily action with personal consciousness cannot be in conformity with Absolute Knowledge. It is not possible for a person to sport in the Self or have delight in the Self and at the same time concern himself with relative action. Self-Knowledge is possible only after withdrawing oneself from all external functions, physical as well as mental. The consciousness of externality and internality cannot be simultaneous, even as darkness and light do not exist in the same place.

Therefore, the contention that it is possible to combine action with Absolute Knowledge is only the prattle of the ignorant. The Upanishads have constantly declared that true Knowledge is obtained through renunciation of all external functions and through meditation on the Absolute. The Brahma Varishtha, therefore, is one who has realised Brahman and whose action consists in Self-Knowledge preceded by renunciation of external consciousness.

Divine unity in Vedanta philosophy


The Atman is attained through truth, penance, correct knowledge and Brahmacharya (self-control), observed continuously without break. The Atman is beheld within in the form of light and purity by the austere ones who are freed from all kinds of sins.

Truth is adherence to fact, whether absolute or relative. It is proceeding along the way of the unity of existence. Relatively, it takes the form of acting in conformity with facts that are experienced through the process of individual knowledge. Absolutely, it is living in the light of the fact that Existence is absolute and indivisible. Falsehood is the opposite of truth, and is the result of clinging to the falsehood of individuality. Truth is the way of disintegrating the individual personality through presentation of the good and not the pleasant. Truth is that which is universally good, but falsehood, when it is deliberately resorted to for the fulfilment of a definite purpose, appears pleasant only to an individual or certain individuals. Falsehood, therefore, fattens the individuality, whereas truth breaks open the individuality and enables one to realise the Atman.

Tapas, or penance, in its true sense, consists in the withdrawal of senses and concentration of the mind. Austerity, or penance, is only a means to the end and not the end itself. It is a means inasmuch as it disciplines the individual functions and directs them to meditation, which leads to wisdom and realisation. By Tapas what is meant is not merely bodily mortification, because bondage does not consist in the body but the mind that animates the body. The cause of bondage is the mind alone and, therefore, the discipline of the mind is Tapas.

Proper knowledge is equal vision, or perception of the one Atman in all. This is a function deeper than that of speaking truth or practising Tapas. It is a function of the spirit which realises itself in every form of existence.

Brahmacharya is the method of the abstraction of sense-energy from the externals and the conservation of the same for the sake of steadying the mind and giving it the energy necessary for the practice of concentration and meditation, though the popular meaning of Brahmacharya is continence. It really means leading a life befitting the nature of Brahman. It is, in other words, Charya or moving or acting or conducting oneself in accordance with the law of Brahman, which is the unity of existence. Such control is not merely the abandonment of objects but is the absence of the taste for objects. Bondage is not caused by the existence of objects but by the connection of the mind with those objects. In short, self-control is absence of sense-experience, giving rise to mental equilibrium, light, consciousness and joy.

These observances should be practised continuously without exceptions to the rules, and not for sometime alone and with certain exceptions. These should be practised until the realisation of the Self, because the stoppage of such practices may lead to the assertion of individuality and impede the process of Self-realisation. The Upanishad has said that “the Atman is attained by those in whom there is no crookedness, no falsehood and no play of tricks”.

This Atman is realised within oneself and not outside oneself. Though the process of realisation is an inward one, the goal that is attained includes the outward also. Sadhana starts with an introversion of the mind in the beginning, but in the end the result achieved is not simply internal but is infinite. From the point of view of the individual, it is said that this Atman is realised in one’s own heart, in the form of a splendid effulgence, perfectly pure and limitless in its nature, which is realised only by those who are free from attachments and sins, desires and all kinds of greed. This realisation is effected through the practice of virtues like truth, enumerated above. Sankara is of the opinion that only a Sannyasin, i.e., a person of complete renunciation, will be able to achieve this Supreme End which requires of the aspirant a total transcendence of the universe.


Truth alone triumphs; not falsehood. Through truth the divine path is spread out by which the sages whose desires have been completely fulfilled, reach to where is that supreme treasure of Truth.

Truth is more than truth-speaking. Truth is the symbol of perfection, a representation of the Divine Being. Adherence to truth means embracing the universal nature of the Reality. Therefore, truth wins victory everywhere. Truth is the essence of the Universal movement consisting of evolution and involution. Untruth is negative, whereas truth is positive. Through Truth the consciousness blossoms into more expanded experience, but untruth attempts to stifle consciousness altogether and disallows the expansion of consciousness causing, at the same time, the hardening of individuality.

It is Truth through which the divine way or the life of spiritual striving is spread before the aspiring individuals. The universe as a spiritual organism to be striven for, is brought into the consciousness of the individual through the practice of Truth. Truth is in fact the eye of the individual aspiring for the realisation of its Absolute nature. The sages got a vision of this Truth because they were absolutely free from such defects as deceit, delusion, fraud, pride, vanity and falsehood. They found the consummation of their desires and aspirations in this Absolute Truth. They became first desireless and then sought the Truth. Desire breeds falsehood, and desirelessness gives rise to Truth. Truth enables one to attain the Supreme Treasure which is the Absolute Truth.


That which is supremely expansive, divine, of unthinkable form, subtler than the subtle, much farther than that which is far, and at the same time very near, shines and is seated in the Central Being of those who have the consciousness of That.


It is not grasped by the eye, not even by speech, nor by the other senses. It is not possible to know it through mortifications or deeds. He who meditates upon it with absolute purity (Sattva) of mind, as the partless Being, beholds it through the serenity attained in knowledge.

The serenity of knowledge is that state where nothing is experienced other than simple awareness. In ordinary human beings, this knowledge is not manifest, since it is not connected with the tranquillity of mind and also since it is polluted by the defects of love and hatred for external things. As a mirror covered over by dust is not able to reflect an object, knowledge, though it is present within, is not experienced, as the mind is disturbed by objectivity. When the dirt of the mind consisting of love, etc., in connection with the sense-objects, is removed and the mind is rendered calm, pure and peaceful, then one is said to have attained the serenity of knowledge in which condition alone one becomes fit for the experience of Brahman. Further, meditation should be practised on Brahman as the partless indivisible being and not as a partial or limited aspect of the whole. The quality of meditation is dependent upon the character of the object of meditation. When the mind contemplates upon the divisionless Being, it itself becomes divisionless and vanishes into the Absolute. But, for all this, in the beginning, practice of virtues like truth is absolutely necessary, to be followed by the withdrawal of the senses and concentration of mind, leading to Tadatmyata, or absorption in the object of meditation.


This subtle Atman should be known with the purified mind into which the Prana with its fivefold aspect has entered. The mind is pervaded completely by the functions of the Pranas together with the powers of the senses. In this purified mind this Atman is revealed.


Whichever region is thought of by the mind and whatever desires the man of purified mind desires, that region and those desires he obtains. Therefore, one who wishes to have prosperity should worship the knower of the Self.

The realisation of the Self is a simultaneous fulfilment of the deepest aspirations together with all the desires, internal or external, unmanifested or manifested, subtle or gross, of the individual. The state of Sattva, or absolute purity of mind, is not an individualistic experience but a universal one. Sattva is free from Rajas and, therefore, the experiences of the individualities are denied in it. Complete fulfilment of all one’s wishes is not possible except in the state of universal Being, which is the same as Suddha-Sattva-Anubhava.

Because of the omniscience and omnipotence of the knower of Self, whoever worships him becomes prosperous. The Sankalpa of the Knower is rooted in Satya or Truth, and his influence upon those who adore and worship him, is great. Wherever this Knower of the Self moves, there he exercises his influence automatically. Whoever comes in contact with him gets completely transformed.

The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel | Free Book

The Master Key System 


Charles F. Haanel.

First published in 1916. Now in the public domain.


Before any environment, successful or otherwise, can be created, action of some kind is necessary, and before any action is possible, there must be thought of some kind, either conscious or unconscious, and as thought is a product of mind, it becomes evident that Mind is the creative center from which all activities proceed. It is not expected that any of the inherent laws which govern the modern business world as it is at present constituted can be suspended or repealed by any force on the same plane, but it is axiomatic that a higher law may overcome a lower one. 

Tree life causes the sap to ascend, not by repealing the law of gravity but by surmounting it. To control circumstances a knowledge of certain scientific principles of mind-action is required. Such knowledge is a most valuable asset. It may be gained by degrees and put into practice as fast as learned. Power over circumstances is one of its fruits; health, harmony and prosperity are assets upon its balance sheet. It costs only the labor of harvesting its great resources. 

The naturalist who spends much of his time in observing visible phenomena is constantly creating power in that portion of his brain set apart for observation. The result is that he becomes very much more expert and skilful in knowing what he sees, and grasping an infinite number of details at a glance, than does his unobserving friend. He has reached this facility by exercise of his brain. 

He deliberately chose to enlarge his brain power in the line of observation, so he deliberately exercised that special faculty, over and over, with increasing attention and concentration. Now we have the result a man learned in the lore of observation far above his fellows. Or, on the other hand, one can, by stolid inaction, allow the delicate brain matter to harden and ossify until his whole life is barren and fruitless. 

Every thought tends to become a material thing. Our desires are seed thoughts that have a tendency to sprout and grow and blossom and bear fruit. We are sowing these seeds every day. What shall the harvest be? Each of us to-day is the result of his past thinking. Later we shall be the result of what we are now thinking. We create our own character, personality and environment by the thought which we originate, or entertain. Thought seeks its own. 

The law of mental attraction is an exact parallel to the law of atomic affinity. Mental currents are as real as electric, magnetic or heat currents. We attract the currents with which we are in harmony—are we selecting those which will be conducive to our success? This is the important question. Lines of least resistance are formed by the constant action of the mind. The activity of the brain reacts upon the particular faculty of the brain employed. 

The latent power of the mind is developed by constant exercise. Each form of its activity becomes more perfect by practice. Exercises for the development of the mind present a variety of motives for consideration. They involve the development of the perceptive faculties, the cultivation of the emotions, the quickening of the imagination, the symmetrical unfoldment of the intuitive faculty, which without being able to give a reason frequently impels or prohibits choice, and finally the power of the mind may be cultivated by the development of the moral character. “The greatest man,” said Seneca, “is he who chooses right with invincible determination.” The greatest power of the mind, then, depends upon its exercise in moral channels, and therefore requires that every conscious mental effort should involve a moral end. 

A developed moral consciousness modifies consideration of motives, and increases the force and continuity of actions; consequently the well developed symmetrical character necessitates good physical, mental and moral health, and this combination creates initiative, power, resistless force, and necessarily success. It will be found that Nature is constantly seeking to express Harmony in all things, is forever trying to bring about an harmonious adjustment, for every discord, every wound, every difficulty; therefore when thought is harmonious, nature begins to create the material conditions, the possession of which is necessary in order to make up an harmonious environment. 

When we understand that mind is the great creative power, what does not become possible? With Desire as the great creative energy, can we not see why Desire should be cultivated, controlled and directed in our lives and destinies? Men and women of strong mentality, who dominate those around them, and often those far removed from them, really emanate currents charged with power which, coming in contact with the minds of others, causes the desires of the latter to be in accord with the mind of the strong individuality. 

Great masters of men possess this power to a marked degree. Their influence is felt far and near, and they secure compliance with their wishes by making others “want” to act in accord with them. In this way men of strong
