A Kabbalistic perspective of the Law of Assumption process

A Kabbalistic perspective of the manifesting process:

1. Zimzum (Tzimtzum):  In Kabbalah, Zimzum refers to the concept of contraction or withdrawal. It is the idea that in order to create space for the existence of the created world, the divine infinite light (often referred to as Ein Sof) contracted or withdrew itself from a certain space, allowing a void or “empty” space to form. This contraction made it possible for the finite and separate realms of creation to emerge. The Big Bang, was one such contraction, but so is the first division of an ovum. The creation of anything requires this contraction, a making space for a new revelation, a new human, or a new universe or a new idea.

2. World of Atzilut: The World of Atzilut is the highest of the four main spiritual worlds in Kabbalistic thought. It’s often called the “World of Emanation” or the “World of Nobility.” Atzilut represents a state of closeness to the divine and is associated with the most direct experience of the divine light. It’s considered a realm of unity and divine attributes, where the boundaries between the divine and the created are less distinct. In Atzilut, the divine attributes, often referred to as the sefirot, are in harmonious balance.

3. Sefirot:  The sefirot are ten divine attributes or emanations through which the divine interacts with and manifests in the world. They are often depicted as a diagram called the “Tree of Life.” Each sefirah represents a different aspect of the divine nature and serves as a channel through which divine energy flows. The sefirot include qualities such as wisdom, understanding, mercy, severity, beauty, and more.

4. Creation of the Worlds

According to Kabbalistic idea, the process of creation involves a series of descents from the higher spiritual realms to the lower, more material realms. 

This progression starts with the divine light’s contraction (Zimzum), creating a space for the subsequent worlds to form. The first of these worlds is Atzilut, which is the closest to the divine source. From there, the divine energy descends through the worlds of Beriah (Creation), Yetzirah (Formation), and finally, Assiyah (Action), which is the physical world we perceive.

The concept of manifesting, according to Neville Goddard, overlaps with the “four worlds” in Kabbalah.  This concept gives us the understanding of how the spiritual realms and divine attributes can be harnessed to bring about desired outcomes in the physical world. 

Each of the four worlds represents a different stage of the creative process, and by working with these stages, individuals can align their intentions with divine energies to manifest their goals. Here’s how it can be understood and applied:

1. Atzilut – Intent and Divine Will:

   Atzilut is the world of divine emanation, representing the highest spiritual realm closest to the divine source. It is associated with divine attributes (sefirot) in perfect harmony. To begin the process of manifestation, one starts in Atzilut by setting clear intentions aligned with their higher purpose and in harmony with divine will. This involves connecting to the essence of what you want to manifest and infusing it with positive and pure intentions.

2. Beriah – Visualization and Creative Thought:

   Beriah is the world of creation, where thoughts and ideas take shape. Creative concepts, intellectual thoughts all form here. This is where we find Neville Goddard’s overlap, “imagination creates” 

Once you have set your intention, move into Beriah by using creative visualization and focused thought. Imagine your desired outcome as vividly and clearly as possible. See yourself already in possession of what you want to manifest. As you do this, you are shaping the raw material of divine energy into a coherent blueprint for your manifestation.

3. Yetzirah – Emotional Energy and Formation:

   Yetzirah is the world of formation and emotion. Emotional energy is a powerful force for manifestation. With your intention and imagination in place, immerse yourself emotionally in the experience of having achieved your goal. The emotional world and the spiritual world are intertwined here.  Instead of worlds you can imagine this as dimension, or as a state of mind. By world is not meant a location is space, like another planet, but another world within your mind. Feel the joy, gratitude, and excitement as if it has already happened. Feel it real. Emotions and senses are the fuel that brings life to your creative imagination, and helps shape the energy into a more tangible form.

4. Assiyah – Physical Action and Materialization:

   Assiyah is the physical world we perceive. It is the culmination of your intent. Having aligned your intention, thought, and emotion, it’s time to take practical action in the physical realm. This might involve steps like making plans, taking specific actions, and following through with persistence and dedication. Your actions are the bridge between the spiritual and physical realms, allowing the energy you’ve generated in the higher worlds to be grounded in reality.

In summary, the process of manifestation using the “four worlds” in Kabbalah involves moving through these stages:

1.Set your intention in Atzilut by aligning with divine will. You NEED silence for this, but only a MOMENT! This is what meditation is for. Find your SILENCE, your SPACE between thoughts. The withdrawal of mind, a deliberate creation of space. Stillness and calm.

2. Visualize, envision, imagine light into this mental void, this space, this stillness,  and think creatively  in Beriah to shape the desired outcome. Divine thought TAKES SHAPE here, in the form of words. 

Keeping your mind SOUND prevents misinterpretation. Define your intent clearly, Be clear on what you  want, and guard that you are not focused on what you don’t want. Nothing and no one but yourself is responsible for keeping your mind SOUND. Your creative intent can only be translated into articulate thought by you, if you have a hard time, use affirmations and autosuggestion, this tool keeps your focus in the right place.

3. Emotionally connect in Yetzirah by feeling the reality of your manifestation. Oh, sounds like Neville Goddard now doesn’t it. FEEL IT REAL. Connect, emotionally. Understand that by the time you are “doing” your “FIR” session, this desire has been generated by your divine, filtered through your mind and is now ready to be expressed through you as a sensory experience. You amalgamate the divine idea into your own being in this step. 

4. Take practical action  in Assiyah to bring your manifestation into the physical world. This is “Take normal action” Do the right thing, don’t act out of desperation, your actions should always reflect “the right thing for you”, meaning your general responsibilities, and such. Inspired action takes place on its own, you will not know that it is happening. The divine desire to expand continues to express through us, and your actions are willed by the divine, you don’t have to fear that you don’t know what to do. It is easy, always do the right thing, and the right thing happens for you. Some say, do the will of God and God will do your will for you. Another way of saying this is, let your actions be aligned with the golden rule, or the ten commandments, or the noble eightfold path, and “be still and know.” This step works  best if you have followed the previous steps. In other words, you might think that doing good actions always ought to give good results, but it isn’t always the case, is it? Mind your creative intent, and the clarity of your sound mind, set you intent, and feel it real, and you will be right on track.

Manifesting Wealth Using the Four Worlds:

  1. Intent and Divine Will: Begin by connecting with divine will. Set a clear intention for the wealth you wish to manifest. In this space of divine alignment, silence your mind and create a stillness within, making room for your intention to take root.
  2. Visualization and Creative Thought: Visualize your financial abundance as vividly as possible. Imagine scenarios where money flows effortlessly into your life. Your imagination acts as a conduit for your intention to take form.
  3. Emotional Energy and Formation: Immerse yourself emotionally in the experience of being financially abundant. Feel the joy, gratitude, and excitement that comes with having the wealth you desire. Emotions are the bridge between the spiritual and physical, infusing your intention with tangible energy.
  4. Physical Action and Materialization: Ground your manifestation in the physical realm through inspired action. Your actions should align with your intention. Trust in the divine flow as you take steps toward financial prosperity. Remember, doing the right thing and aligning with your intentions generates the energy needed for manifestation.

Manifesting Love and Removing Third Parties:

  1. Intent and Divine Will: Set a clear intention to manifest love and eliminate any interference. In this realm, your intention should focus on harmony, connection, and the removal of barriers. Create a sacred space within your consciousness to establish this intention. Creating an open space within always requires detachment from outcomes. It requires observing thoughts but not attaching to them. It requires to notice feelings but not identifying with hem. This open space is the place where grace enters in.
  2. Visualization and Creative Thought: Imagine yourself in a loving, fulfilling relationship. Envision interactions filled with love, joy, and companionship. Allow your imagination to create a vivid experience of your desired love story.
  3. Emotional Energy and Formation: Infuse your visualization with deep emotional resonance. Feel the love you wish to experience as if it’s already present. By emotionally connecting to this reality, you reshape your energy and draw the desired experience closer.
  4. Physical Action and Materialization: Take steps that align with the intention of manifesting love. This might involve actively seeking opportunities to meet like-minded individuals or deepening existing connections. In terms of removing third parties, focus on fostering open and honest communication to address any obstacles that may arise. Be present, be there, know yourself and know your partner. Third parties can never enter into a relationship where you are present, learn to be attentive and to receive attention. Take normal action and take only correct action. Inspired action is not known until you look back in hindsight, so don’t try to force inspired action, it can’t be done.

Eschatology is the doctrine of the last days. It is the dramatic end of human history and the beginning of eternal salvation. When you, an individual arrive at that point in time, human history and the appearance of the Son or man (who is God) come together. This will happen in you after the tribulation of human experience, and of that day and hour only the Father in you knows. 

Although God the Father appears to be another, He is your very Self, as His spirit is in you. Were this not so, you could not commune with Him or He with you. He tells us to: “Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth. Bring them all who are called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” You were created for God�s glory, His glory will not be given to another, therefore you must be the one who created you. This you will know when you experience eschatology. It comes at the end of human tribulation, when all of the parts have been played, therefore envy no one, the part they are paying, for you have either played it already or you will play it, for you cannot come to this dramatic end until you have played all of the parts, and of that day only the Father within you knows.

Eschatology was predicted and was fulfilled in vision. Always bear in mind that all of the stories recorded in scripture are visions. The Book of Isaiah begins: “This is the vision of Isaiah, the son of Amos.” He tells you it is a vision and the sixty-six chapters do not deny it, modify it, or in any way contradict his words. We speak of the visions of Obadiah, the visions of Ezekiel, and are told that: “The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah.” These are all visions, not secular history at all. 

In the 42nd chapter of Isaiah, we read: “Behold, the former things have come to pass and new I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” A literal rendering of the first part of that verse could be: “The former things, behold they have come, but man will not believe the individual who experienced them.”

Jesus Christ is not a man. He has revealed himself in me and will reveal himself in all even though the world is looking for something entirely different. The visions of the prophets will unfold in individual man when he enters the state called Paul. And when you enter that state, your mystical experiences will reveal the end of your tribulation of human experience and your entry into the kingdom of God. 

The entire eschatology of the Old Testament is the coming of Jehovah. He came, but – expecting a physical person to come from without, they would not believe him.

But Jehovah comes only to fulfill what He had predicted through his prophets, saying: “Behold the former things have come and are here now.” The former predictions of the prophets become your experiences of the one who fulfills scripture, for man fulfills the prophecy of himself in the last days. 

God, prophesying what he would do through his prophets, entered into the limitation of and took upon himself the restriction of man. The power and wisdom to create emptied himself of all that was his and, taking upon himself the form of a slave, was born in the likeness of man. Spirit became obedient unto death, even death upon the cross of man. And when an individual man told the story of how the prophecies unfolded in him, no one would believe his story. 

So today we still have that fundamental rock called Israel. Their calendar year is now approaching 6,000, because to them He has not come. It is only when eschatology comes to the individual does his BC turn into A.D.

The Jew will date their letters as the year 1969 because it is part of the world of Caesar, but believing Jehovah has not yet come, in his faith, the Jew keeps alive the long passage of time. But Jehovah comes in an entirely different way.

He inspired the prophets to record the visions the individual will experience, personally. 

Now if God – being Spirit – is known in a vision, what must you do to experience Him? You must reenact the drama within yourself! The resurrection takes place within. The birth foretold to Abraham takes place within. The three who bear witness to the birth are not seen approaching, but suddenly appear within. And the story of the serpent in the wilderness is fulfilled within when you become the serpent and ascend into heaven as the Lord God Jehovah. 

Who would have thought – I know I didn’t – that the story recorded in the 22nd and 53rd chapters of Isaiah would be experienced in one night? Remember: when the prophets recorded their visions they were written out, but not paragraphed or made into chapter form. In fact, they were not even punctuated and often one word flowed into the other. It is man who has taken the manuscript and given it punctuation, verses, paragraphs, and chapters. 

In the 53rd chapter of Isaiah, the question is asked:

“Who has believed our report and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

One night in vision I found myself in a room much like this one. I was seated on the floor facing twelve men, explaining the word of God when one quickly rose quickly and departed. As he left, I intuitively knew he was going to tell the authorities what he had heard. Then a tall, handsome man about 6’4″ tall, dressed in costly robes, entered. Because of his importance we all rose and stood at attention as he walked straight as an arrow to the end of the room, turned right, walked to the end, turned right again and came down the center to confront me. Taking a mallet and a wooden peg, he hammered the peg into my right shoulder. I felt every blow, yet it was not painful. Then he took a sharp instrument and with one quick, circular motion he severed my sleeve, tore it off and discarding it, he stretched out his arms forming the cross, embraced me, and kissed me on the right side of my neck as I – in turn – kissed him on the right side of his neck.

And as the vision faded I saw the severed sleeve. It was a lovely shade of baby blue. His robe was costly, but mine was the priceless robe of light, light blue.

So now I know whom I have believed, for that night the arm of the Lord was revealed in me, and the 53rd chapter of Isaiah was fulfilled as well as the 22nd chapter of Isaiah. In this chapter we are told that he puts a peg into the shoulder of the one he has chosen, and on that peg all of the burdens of Israel are hung until the peg is broken. Then the utensils of the temple fall, for he has played his part. 

Eschatology will never be understood as long as you look for someone on the outside to fulfill it. It an only be understood when you, personally experience it. Then you will tell your experiences to those who will listen, and some will believe you while others will disbelieve. 

Eschatology is not the end of the world, as people believe. This past year a crowd left California and moved to Georgia and parts east, believing an earthquake would suddenly appear which would completely inundate us, and for the first time in recorded history, the east experienced an earthquake which shook twelve states. 

What does it matter if an earthquake comes when there is no death? The individual who seems to die, in truth is restored to life in a 20-year old body to continue life in the environment best suited for the work still to be done in him. Cast in a role he has not yet played, he will continue life as we know it here, until he has played all of the tribulations of human experience. Then and only then will he arrive at eschatology – the day of the Lord – and only the Father knows when that day will appear. 

I don’t care who you are – you are destined to experience eschatology, for it was God’s purpose to give himself to you and God is able to fulfill his purpose. He created you to radiate his glory and be the express image of his person. 

You cannot stop God from fulfilling his purpose, but you will not arrive at that moment called eschatology until you have played all the parts – be they good, bad, or indifferent. So I say, envy no one. It doesn’t matter what they have done, are doing, or will do; do not envy or pity anyone, for you have either already played that part, or you will. 

The Bible records every conceivable evil in the world that man could do to man and describes it openly. And you have played, or will play, every part before the last days come upon you, and in that day, events of scripture will unfold in you in a dramatic form imaginable.

You will be possessed and find yourself the center of the entire Bible. As scripture reveals itself in you, you will discover from experience that you are the Lord Jesus Christ. And when you share your experience with others, they will question how a little nonentity who suffers and has nothing the world he would brag about could dare to make this bold assumption. They will think of you as blaspheming God, just as they accused him, claiming he blasphemed by stating, I and my Father are one, that when you see me you have seen the Father; that if you really knew me, you would know my Father also, but you know neither me nor my Father, for my Father is playing the part that I am. 

And then one night in vision, I fulfilled the 42nd Psalm.

That night, in vision I found myself leading an enormous crowd in gay procession to the house of God as a voice rang out: “And God walks with them.” A woman at my side asked the voice: “If God walks with us, where is he?” and the voice replied: “At your side.” Turning to her left she looked into my face and, laughing hysterically said, “What, Neville is God?” and the voice replied, “Yes, in the act of waking.” Then the voice spoke in the depths of my soul, saying: “I laid myself down within you to sleep and as I slept I dreamed a dream. I dreamed…” and, knowing exactly what he was going to say, I became so excited I actually nailed myself upon this body in the same manner tradition tells us he was nailed upon the cross, but it was not a painful experience. Six vortices, each an ecstatic, joyful feeling, hold me here. 

Now I know that no man took (or takes) my life, for I lay it down myself. I know I have the power to lay it down and the power to take it up again; for I, God the Father, deliberately took upon myself this limitation upon myself. When I heard the voice that night say: “I laid myself down within you to sleep, and as I slept I dreamed a dream,” I knew he was telling me that he was I and when the dream is over and he awakes I would be He, radiating His glory and bearing the express image of His person. 

This is not for me alone, but for all. Listen to the words:

“The glory that thou gavest me I would give to them that they may be one even as we are one.”

I have told you of the glory that is now mine, thereby giving you the glory that we may be one. I in you and thou in me, that we may be made perfectly one. I have made God’s name known to you and I will make it known that the love by which I am loved may be in you. Not less love, but the same love, so that the whole may become one love! 

In the end everyone will experience the whole Bible and tell it as I am telling it now. A few will believe but the majority will not. That’s all right, for all of the tribulations of human experience must be fulfilled, with no omissions. Today you may be one of the so-called beautiful people, possessing inherited wealth. You may be one of the ten best dressed women and spend a quarter of a million dollars on clothes to create the part you are playing. But tomorrow, even if you haven’t played it, you may play the part of a scrub woman, for every part must be played before you can arrive at eschatology. 

Having played every part as recorded in scripture, when I aw a man betray me I knew I had played the part of the betrayer, for I have fulfilled scripture. 

Everyone must play it all, if not on this stage, then on another, for when you leave this set on the stage of life, although you are no longer seen by the audience here, you are not dead, but have entered another stage in the great theater called life, to continue the work that is still to be done in you, until all of the parts in the play have been played. 

Eschatology is not the end of the earth, but the end of human history and the beginning of eternal salvation. It is the abrupt cleavage between this world and the transcendental world of God. It is your entrance into an entirely different world where you radiate God’s glory which you create by your very being, for you are now the Father. God the Father created you to radiate his glory and bear the express image of His person in that world. I cannot describe it because there are no images on earth to aid me. Life there is entirely different from this one, for there you are not some little pygmy, but God Himself, completely equipped to do it all! 

So if you condemn someone, the chances are you have not played the part he is playing, but will play it tomorrow, for condemnation simply moves you closer to the fulfillment of what you have condemned. Let no one judge you and don’t judge another, for you know too much now. It is my hope you have played all the parts and that tonight your eschatology will come. Sacred history has been brought to its climax, and fulfilled in Jesus Christ, but Jesus Christ in you is the one who does it. 

Addressing God as, “O righteous Father”, he [John] said: “I in them and thou in me.” Now, if God the Father is in me, and I am in you, is He not in you also? Yes, God the Father is in you and Christ, his God�s creative power, is in you as the pattern man who must fulfill scripture. The plan was made for, and erupts in Christ – the Christ in you. He is your hope of glory, for you are the one spoken of as Abraham.

In the state called Abraham the promise was made that you would have a child. So what part are you playing then the child appears? Abraham looked up to see three men standing before him. He thought they were messengers of the Lord for he did not realize he was the Lord himself. It is said he did not see them approaching they came so suddenly. And when the prophecy is fulfilled your attention is diverted for a few seconds by an unearthly wind, and when you look back those that you did not see approaching are sitting where your body was, for your body is now gone. The body has been removed because you only wore it for a little while, but while you wore it something happened in you.

Now a lady wrote this past week, saying: “In my dream I was shoveling dirt. Although it seemed as though I was digging in the earth, I knew I was digging in my own brain.� That�s a lovely vision and a true one. Everything takes place in the brain – the earth, for man is made up of the dust of the earth, so her vision was perfect. She was digging in her own brain. For she is on the verge, although I cannot tell her the day or the hour, for only the Father in her knows.

If you will read the Book of John – which differs somewhat from the synoptics, you will discover that John pinpoints the day the vision will occur, stating that the birth, followed by the resurrection, will take place between 6:00 P.M. on Sunday and 6:00 P.M. on Monday. That is when it happened in me. I went to bed on Sunday evening about 11:00 P.M. and awoke, was born from above, and resurrected at 4:00 A.M. on Monday morning. You will follow the same pattern. Having entered the world before the coming of Jehovah, you entered the world from B.C. and when it happens your world turns into the year of the Lord, A.D. 

The Old Testament is crowded with eschatology – the coming of Jehovah. He came but was not recognized because it was not what people expected. But He is coming in your world and you are going to fulfill scripture. When you realize you are the central character of the Bible, you are going to feel so wonderful. I cannot tell you the thrill that is in store for you when you experience everything written there. Even though it has happened to others, scripture is all about you, because in the end there is no other. In that day, you will know that I dwell in them and thou in me, and we, all gathered together are perfect in that one body, one Spirit, one Lord, one God and Father of all. 

You will not have a different son from the speaker. We have the same son. When I tell this to priests, rabbis and ministers, they throw up their hands in holy horror and claim I have taken all of their religion from them. What they have been taught is true on a certain level of awareness, but I am speaking from experience. I have experienced scripture. I know it is true, but it is not what the world teaches.

Jesus Christ is God the Father and Jesus Christ is in you. One day you will find out that you are God the father and because you are you will produce a son to bear witness to that fact. Now no one knows who God the Father is, except his son who comes into your world to reveal you to yourself. And when he appears you don’t have to ask him who he is; the minute you see him you know exactly who he is and he knows who you are. There is no uncertainty as to this relationship. To know that you are God the Father, yet while you remain here in the world of Caesar you will continue to wear the little garment that suffers, as all garments do. But after you have experienced eschatology and leave this little garment behind, you will no longer be restored to life, for you will have come to the end of human history. 

In the Book of Acts it is said that Paul remained at home, talking from morning to night about the word of God and the kingdom of heaven. It does not say how Paul departed, in spite of tradition where they claim he was a martyr. Paul was not murdered. The word “martyr means “witness, He was a witness, yes, a witness to the truth of God’s word, for the word is true, and someone had to witness it. 

So when it happens to you, you will tell it. You may not speak from the platform, as I do, but you will tell it. You can’t restrain the impulse as we are told in Jeremiah: “If I say I will not mention him or speak any more in his name, there is in my heart, as it were, a burning fire and I am tired of holding it in and I cannot.” It’s simply something within you and you cannot stop telling your story. You will be compelled to make known unto them God’s name and the love by which you are loved, that that same love may be in them. 

Now, Jesus Christ does not stand before himself and call himself Father. God�s only begotten son, David, stands before Jesus Christ in you, and calls you father as he called me Father. Then you will know we are the same Jesus Christ. 

I can say to every one of you: you are going to have this experience and know from experience who you really are. There are not a lot of Jesus Christ’s running around, there is only God the Father. If I am the father of God’s only begotten Son as told me in the 2nd Psalm and you have the same experience, then you and I are the same Father. And if the whole world has the same experience – and they will – then we are the one God and Father of all, are we not? So John’s prayer is that all will become one as he has become one Father. And he speaks of the glory recorded in Isaiah, saying:

“The glory thou gavest me, I have given them.”

God didn’t keep a little glory for himself and share the rest. It’s the same glory, because there cannot be another. So in the end there is only one God, only one Lord, only one Father, and only one Son and you will be the Father of that son, as I know I am the Father of that one and only son.

This captivating collection of books delves into the art of harnessing the boundless potential of your mind and beliefs.

Elevate your consciousness and set forth on a voyage of spiritual evolution with this extraordinary compilation of timeless wisdom

This is eschatology – the arrival of the end of the tribulation of human experience and the beginning of eternal salvation. And, although you may not remember, you had to have played every part in this world to arrive at the fulfillment of scripture. The blind man, the deaf man, the poor man, the rich man, the beggar, the thief, the murderer, the betrayer, the betrayed – you name it and scripture has mentioned it. , You can’t name one vile or evil state that is not described openly in scripture. And you have played them all, or you will. 

I think you who come here have played them all or you would not be this constant. You would find something far more interesting tonight, raining as it is, than to be here. So in the not distant future you will be fulfilling scripture and experiencing the thrill of the events s they happen. Today we watched the inauguration of a new president. It was a marvelous production, but it pales into insignificance compared to the dramatic quality that possesses you when scripture unfolds within you.

Can you imagine waking and coming out of your skull as one coming out of a womb? Then five months later finding your son who calls you Father? These two different events are recorded in the 9th chapter of Isaiah as: “To us a child is born; to us a son is given.” The child appears to bear witness to your birth, and the son is given to witness your Fatherhood. You may think the child and the son are the same, but they are not. They signify two dramatic events within you. I am sure our new president felt thrilled to be sworn in by our chief justice, but the thrill you will experience when scripture unfolds within you is far greater, for these experiences belong to the transcendental world of God, and not to this mortal world of history.

Can you imagine the thrill that possesses you when, like a fiery serpent, you ascend into heaven and it reverberates like thunder? Having played that part of one in generation, you are regenerated and all that you have ever done is forgiven. 

I have shared my visions of the last days with you. They will come, but only after you have experienced all the trials and tribulations of human experience. Don’t try to remember them for God, in his infinite mercy has hidden the memory from you for a purpose and in the end it is all washed away anyway.

“Though your sins are as scarlet they shall be as white as snow,”

so it really doesn’t matter. But I urge you to condemn no one, for you have played the part he (or she) is now playing or you will play it.

It’s a horrible play, but in the end when eschatology unfolds within you, you will understand the meaning behind it all. 

Now let us go into the silence.

The Mystery of Imagination | A Neville Goddard Lecture

The Mystery of Imagination | A Neville Goddard Lecture


Tonight’s subject is “The Mystery of Imagination.” I could have titled it “The Mystery of God, the Mystery of Man, the Mystery of Christ.” It would have been the same thing. But I took for tonight the use of the word Imagination—it would not offend. But these three are interchangeable words.

So here, I imagine as do you. We cannot imagine differently. All the differences lie in content.

And so, we ask the little question “Who am I?” and our response to that question determines content…and there we differ. The whole vast world differs based upon their response to that enormous question, which we find in scripture. Who am I? I could tell you that you are God. You wouldn’t believe it. You can read it in scripture: “Be still and know that I am God.” You’ll read it in the 46th Psalm, but you won’t believe it. If I told you that you are Christ, you might be offended; you may have some external concept of a being and you call him Christ. When I say that you do imagine, that wouldn’t offend you because you know we do imagine. And you may not believe for one moment that this power of imagining is the power of God, but, nevertheless, you do imagine. That wouldn’t offend anybody.

So tonight we’ll take…first of all, we’ll start with Blake’s Jerusalem. Now Blake claimed this entire poem was dictated by the Spirit of Prophesy or the Savior of the world. He said, “Morning after morning, when I return I’ve found the spirit of the Savior spreading his beams of love over me and dictating the words of this mild song.” And in this he said, “Babel mocks, saying there is no God nor Son of God, that thou, O Human Imagination, O Divine Body, art all a delusion; but I know thee, O Lord, when thou arisest upon my weary eyes, even in this dungeon and this iron mill…for thou also sufferest with me.” And then the Divine Voice replied: “Fear not! Lo, I am with thee always, only believe in me, that I have power to raise from death thy Brother who sleepeth in Albion” (Plate 60). Now could you honestly believe to that point that you would say, “But I know thee, O Lord” meaning your own wonderful human Imagination, no other being, your Imagination, the eternal you. Could you say with him that “Man is all Imagination and God is man and he in us and we in him. The Eternal Body of man is the Imagination and that is God himself” (Laocoon/Annot. to Berkeley). Could you believe it?

Well now, let us show you. We’re told in scripture that all things were made through Christ and without him was not anything made that was made, but all things, good, bad and indifferent (Jn. 1:2). Now who made this? The year is 1951—my brother-in-law because he is married to my wife’s sister—called and asked if I would see him that evening…it was very important. He knew that we were sailing for Barbados in about two weeks and he wanted to see me before we sailed. So he came home and this was his problem. First, I’ll give you his background. He graduated from Harvard and then remained on and took the business course at Harvard, Harvard Business School’s graduate course. Came out of college and went straight into the bank, the Bank of New York. Well, as you know banks have different departments and some departments do not advance rapidly. He was in the Trust Dept. That is almost a service; that is not a money making section of the bank. So he was in the Trust Dept. and after eighteen years he concluded that traveling as he’s traveling now at the bank he couldn’t see how he could possibly put his two children through college. He went through college and his wife went through Smith, and he couldn’t see how he could possibly put these two children through college. They were bright, desired to go to college but with that fixed salary he couldn’t see how he could do it. So he went to the president and the manager of the bank and explained the facts of life.

They in turn reminded him that that department did not allow any further increases in salary, that eventually someone would resign or someone would retire, someone would leave the bank, or they may die. In that event, he would be promoted, but without this, he had to remain and move forward just as they all do in banks. They made it very, very clear to him that if he didn’t like it he could quit.

Now he said, “That’s my problem.” I said, “All right.” First of all, I’ll tell you he was at that time and still is the head usher of a very prominent 5th Avenue church, the Church of the Ascension. He was on the financial board because he was a banker and could advise them on how to invest their funds and to raise funds.

But he couldn’t find any comfort in an interview with his minister. The minister didn’t know what to say to him, how to solve this problem. I said to Sam, “You know Sam that I’m leaving in a couple of weeks and we’ll be gone for about three months. Will you do this? I assure you it will work. It will not fail you if you do it.

You are the operant power, it doesn’t operate itself.

I can tell you from now to the ends of time, but if you don’t operate it by becoming the operant power, it won’t work. But if you actually do what I’m going to ask you to do, I tell you that it will work.” Well, he said, “Tell me.” I said, “When you go to bed tonight—I don’t mean tomorrow night or the next night—I mean tonight and every night thereafter, you feel as though you had the most heavenly day in business, that you invested fantastic funds.” By the by, I must tell you that I asked him, what would you like to do? Well, he said, “I’m trained to invest funds. I know the money market. I would like to handle the funds of a great foundation like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, the Rockefellers or the Fords. That’s the kind of a thing I would like.” I said, alright, as you sleep tonight you feel this is the most heavenly day, the most wonderful day! What a portfolio and what I did with it, this enormous sum of money that you invested, and feel that you’ve never known such a wonderful day in your business. He started that night.

We sailed to Barbados and returned three months later. As is our custom, that very first day they always came home for dinner. So the wife came first and we had a round of drinks and she said, “Let’s wait for Sam. I want Sam to be here before we have any drinks.” I said, “All right, we’ll wait for Sam.” So Sam came in straight from the bank and when he came in I made a round of Martinis, and Sam rose and said, “Dear, did you tell them?” She said, “No, it’s your story. I want you to tell them.” Well, this is the story. Being a member of the financial board of the church this meeting was held two weeks after we sailed.

At the end of the meeting when they came to the sidewalk this man who handles all the funds of the Rockefeller brothers, not the Rockefeller Foundation, it’s something entirely different, the five brothers and their sisters and then their wives and children. The fund runs well in excess of a billion dollars…it’s just their private funds. The man said, “Sam, I’ve been thinking of this for the last couple of weeks.” Right on the heels of Sam beginning to put this into practice he entertains the thought and said to Sam, “Would you consider quitting the bank? I know you have to lose all the seniority, lose all that you’ve built up in the bank, I can’t give you that. I’ll start you at a much, much bigger salary and guarantee you an increase in salary every year. But what an opportunity! Here you have a portfolio well in excess of a billion dollars, and I’m asking you to quit the bank and join me and help me with the Rockefeller money.” He said, “I can’t say yes to it now, but I’ll go home and discuss it with my wife.”

Well, they agreed that it was quite a challenge…and so they would do it. The bank was thrilled beyond measure that the Rockefellers would see in one of their men that they trained one with that ability, and they were just all smiles, all love. When one broke forth they almost offered him to quit. Now they’re thrilled beyond measure because he could throw some business in their direction, handling one portfolio one day, $394 million. At the same time, a $4,000 investment…some grandchild just got an A or B or something in school, and he was given $4,000. He had to take that $4,000 and be just as careful with that investment as the $394 million that he was one day switching in a certain portfolio.

Well, that was Sam. I wrote a book a year later 1952 in which I told this story. I did it without Sam’s consent or knowledge. Knowing the story I wrote the story myself and simply signed his initials. As is my custom, I bring out a new book and I always give Sam a copy. Sam took the book and he saw his story. Now he’s entranced, mind you, in this. He still is a powerhouse in his church. He knows exactly what he did and he knows how it works…but that book was hidden. When I called on Sam the next time there was no discussion of this theory and the book was not available. All my other books were put away. You couldn’t find one of my books in Sam’s house today, because to him this is irrational. Some friend of his in the social world may come to his apartment and see a book, and ___(??) by the title, or take it from the library, see Sam’s story in the book, and that would embarrass him. He’s very prominent in his own minds eye in the social world and in the banking world and these worlds.

So he denied I introduced him to Christ.

He goes to church every Sunday morning, is the head usher…doesn’t know Christ. I introduced him to Christ and proved to him the existence of Christ in him. For all things are made by Christ and without him is not anything made that is made. And who made it? He dared to imagine himself returning from a job where everything was perfect, just as he wanted it. In two weeks the offer came out of the blue. The man began to entertain the thought of suggesting it to Sam soon after Sam began to go to bed night after night imagining that he had such a job. Now he buries the evidence: The old, old story, “he denies the ladder by which he did ascend.” Oh no, that’s not…so I introduced him to Christ, he met Christ and did not recognize him, and did what you’re told in scripture, he denied him.

He rejected Christ although he goes every Sunday and ushers them down the aisle. There he is in his cutaway, leading in that manner.

Now, I’ll tell you the story in scripture that is related to it. “He who is not with me is against me” (Luke 11:23). There is no room for neutrality, none whatsoever, in this conflict. You are either with me or against me. Now, he makes that bold statement and then it seems irrelevant what follows. And this is what he states in the Book of Luke, the 11th chapter:

“When an evil spirit, an unclean spirit goes out of a man, it wanders through waterless places seeking rest; and finding none it says, ‘I’ll return to the house from which I came.’ When he comes to the house he finds it swept and put in order (verse 24).

He goes and gets seven other spirits more evil than itself; and they come and they enter and dwell in that house; and the last state of that man is worse than the first” (verse 26). “Now a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said, ‘Blessed is the womb that bore you and blessed the breasts you sucked.’ He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’”

Here is a man brought into the very presence of the only creative power in the world, his own wonderful human Imagination, his eternal being, who is Christ Jesus in him.

He tests him and proves his creative power to the full satisfaction. He tests him and Christ proved himself in performance, and then he buries the evidence. He wants no part of it, none whatsoever; it isn’t socially prominent. It will do nothing for him in the social world to have that story heard concerning him. So, having turned his back upon Christ, he’ll be confronted tomorrow, next year…I use the word loosely…and he will forget what he did to get the job with the Rockefellers.

He held it for eight years and then his boss quit, and as is the custom when the new boss came in he brought his own personnel so Sam was out. But because of eight years service in that capacity, he was offered all kinds of jobs and he took a junior partnership in a brokerage house. So now he’s a partner in a brokerage house doing remarkably well…a man my age, in fact, the same month in the same year. We never discuss this principle at all. He wants his own archaic concept of a man he calls Jesus Christ.

He doesn’t want a living Christ within himself that is his own wonderful human Imagination. He doesn’t want that, no, he wants something that is historical, something that happened 2,000 years ago, and that to him is Christ.

I introduce you to Christ. I can’t make that ___(?). It is customary that you reject him. I can tell you it’s not the easiest thing in the world having once been trained in an orthodox manner to believe in an eternal Christ to suddenly find that he’s your own wonderful human Imagination; that this is the eternal you, the immortal you, the one that cannot die, and the one that you can put to the test every moment of time. So when Blake said, “Thou also sufferest with me although I do not behold thee” you never behold him as another. He will one day through a series of events reveal himself as you. Because these events are only related to Christ Jesus and only as these events are experienced by you and you are cast in the central role will you know who you are. So you never see him as another as told us in scripture: “It does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall know him because we shall be like him” (1 Jn. 3:2). So when he appears, I am he. So you’ll know by a series of events which you will experience who you really are. Until then, you will know him, but you will not behold him because you don’t behold him. He is God the Father and you can only behold him in the face of his Son. You beholding the Son, knowing the Son is your son, then you know who you are…that you are God the Father.

But long before you know and behold yourself as God the Father, you can know him. So I can bring you this night as I have…I’ve brought you this night and introduced you to Jesus Christ. You can call him Jesus Christ, I do. You can call him, as Blake in Jerusalem calls him, the Lord: “But I know thee, O Lord, when thou arisest upon my weary eyes.” Here yesterday morning, Sunday morning, I returned after a full night of instruction to ethnic groups. When I was addressing Negroes, I was a Negro, as black as the ace of spades, and I’m talking to Negroes. When I addressed the Oriental, I was an Oriental. When I addressed the Caucasian, I was a Caucasian. And yet I am not white, yellow or black; I am Spirit. But to be seen, I had to wear the form of man and wear a pigment acceptable to those I addressed, so here I am, black as the ace of spades speaking to Negroes, and then I am a blond speaking to Caucasians, and again I am the Oriental speaking to Orientals. I came back as gently upon the eyelids as Blake in that 60th Plate tells us: “I know thee, O Lord, when thou arisest upon my weary eyes.” I could actually feel the contact upon this dungeon, this iron mill. And then I spent maybe five minutes just reveling in all that I knew I brought back and what I had done, and then I got up and went about my chores for the day.

So these words are not idle words with Blake. One day you’ll experience them. One day you’ll awaken from the dream of life, and you’ll know that you are God the Father. You will know it by a set series of events. You can’t alter them, don’t try to change them, they will actually unfold in you. They will erupt like a flower erupting on the bush, and the whole thing will reveal you as the being that you’ve been seeking throughout the ages, the being called Jesus Christ or God the Father. But it does not offend man when you speak of the human Imagination, because all admit they do imagine. They may never be that courageous to identify their own wonderful human Imagination with God, but I tell you the day will come when you’ll be forced to identify him and actually interchange a term…that God and your own wonderful human Imagination are one and the same, they’re not two.

You put it to the test. Well, all right, you put it to the test. You know what you want? Well, dare this night to assume that you have it, and sleep in the assumption that you have it, and that assumption will slowly harden into fact. That will harden into fact just as Sam’s hardened into fact. For God is emerging in the direct line of descent from us. When we read the genealogy of Christ that is a direct line of descent from us. Slowly, painfully but surely he is weaving himself on us. And who is he? Your wonderful human Imagination, my wonderful human Imagination, that’s the immortal you that comes out, comes right out of this strange, wonderful line of descent. When it comes out, it’s not anything that you see here; it’s an immortal being, a body that is altogether different.

You are then Spirit, “For flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 15:50). So that which comes out can inherit the kingdom of God, but this cannot, for this is a corruptible body, this is a body that is excrementitious. I certainly don’t want a body of this nature forever of bondage and slavery. For here is a body that no matter how much I have in this world, I could have all the wealth in the world, and I cannot command any slave of mine to perform the normal functions of this body for me, I’ve got to do them all by myself. No money in the world can buy that service. The man who wears such a body has to perform the normal natural functions of that body all by himself or simply give it up. If he ceases to perform them, well then, it means his exit from this world, for he can’t command anyone to perform them for him.

So these bodies are certainly not bodies that you think of that you’d want to have throughout eternity. For the body you’ll have, the immortal body is your own wonderful human Imagination. And you can’t describe it. It is Spirit. It’s a protean being and by that I mean it can assume any shape as I did all through Saturday night. I woke on Sunday morning knowing that I’d played the part of the Caucasian, the Oriental and the Negro teaching the word of God. I was just that body; that was the mask that I wore, and was received by these ethnic groups as their teacher clothed in a garment just like theirs. But the being that was masked by the body, no one saw him, for that one was Spirit, pure Spirit.

Now, a friend of mine wrote me this letter. He says, “I came back from a vast, vast section of space and time, and for one short interval I encountered a fish, and the fish was standing erect on its tail. In what you would call a hand, its flipper, its right flipper or the right fin, it held a fishing rod, and it looked at me so intently. It conveyed the thought to me, ‘I never lose a man that I go after…I catch everyone that I see.’ Then I had a flash that it was all past history, as though through the ages he had been fishing for me and I had been ___(??) the hound of heaven. I had been running, running, running away, but he was infinitely patient, and he the great fish would one day catch him.” Well, this being who wrote the letter, I must tell him that the fish has always been the symbol of Jesus Christ. To this day, you will find it on the crown of the pope, the sign of Pisces, always on the crown of the pope. The “great fish” he is called. So a protean being…it was he clothed as the fish speaking to himself; for he really is in search of self, not in search of another. Everyone is in search of self and that self is God the Father. That being that appeared before him clothed as the fish symbolized what he is searching for. But he got the impression no matter how he tries to escape he will never escape this one, he will always get him. So in the end you get him. And I would say from this vision he isn’t far from being caught.

Now a lady wrote, she said, “You were supposed to close on Friday the 30th,” and she sent this lovely Christmas card from both she and her husband, she said, “On Thursday morning on the 19th I heard your voice distinctly and you were calling to everyone who comes to your meetings on Mondays and Fridays telling them not to come on Friday the 20th for you would not be there. You kept on calling to all the regulars and I was so impressed I went to the telephone and picked up that receiver to call. ‘You know,’ I said, ‘this is stupid. Neville will think me insane’ and I put down the receiver. I still heard the voice, I could not shut it out, and you were eager to call the regulars.

Again I went to the telephone and again I restrained the impulse, thinking you might think me stupid. So again I didn’t do it. Just imagine my chagrin when I came on Friday and was told you would not be there, that you were unwell, that you had the flu. And so you didn’t come the closing night and I knew all day Thursday that you would not be there because I heard your voice calling all the regulars not to come.” If you could only test and trust, completely trust this Inner Being. One day you will. One day you will trust it…you will need no phone. You will be so intuitive your every thought that radiates from a seeming other…for in the end you will know that “All that you behold, though it appears without it is within, in your Imagination of which this world of mortality is but a shadow” (Blake, Jerusalem, Plt.71).

So here, this mystery of imagining as Fawcett said, “It is the greatest of all problems to the solution of which the mystic aspires; for supreme power, supreme wisdom, supreme delight lie in the far off solution of this mystery.” Now notice he uses three definitions, power, wisdom and delight and these are the three defined in scripture that define Christ.

Paul speaks of Christ as the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Cor. 1:24). In the 8th chapter of Proverbs they speak of Christ as the delight of God: “He was with him constantly, delighting before him always, delighting in the affairs of men” (verse 30). “He who finds me finds life; he who misses me injures himself; all who hate me love death” (verse 35). So this that you heard this night if it is denied by you or ignored, it’s because you’re in love with the world of death. Everything here dies…but everything in the world begins and ends, it all dies, but Christ lives forever! Those who hate him it’s because they’re in love with death and they’ll build up enormous fortunes, bigger and bigger, and have to leave it behind them. They haven’t found a way yet of taking it. They’ll leave their little garment and leave their funds no matter what size it is, but this you can’t leave behind. If you find him here, you’ve found him, and death means nothing to you then for you are one with what the world speaks of as Christ.

One day you will know him, you will have all the experiences recorded in scripture concerning Jesus Christ. You’ll be cast in the central role and then you will know beyond all doubt who you really are. You will have found him not as another; you will have found him as yourself. So some find him because they seek him; others find him because they’re brought to him by one who found him. And so, some here this night you didn’t seek him but you’ve been exposed to him. You may not accept it. You may go out and think that’s blasphemy what that man said tonight, because it’s in conflict with your concept of what you think it ought to be. But I tell you from experience. I am not speculating, I am not theorizing, for I’m telling you I know what I know from experience. I have experienced the entire drama as recorded in scripture concerning Jesus Christ, from the resurrection, through the birth, up to the very descent of the dove, the grand baptism.

So everything recorded and all the outstanding events of his life I have experienced while walking in this little mortal frame. The frame is not exempt from all the bugs of the world. So a hundred million Americans got it, I was one of them. And so they burned and so did I…five days of intense fever where you melt…so you take off twelve pounds and you do it certainly the hard way. You can consume all the liquids of the world, weight still isn’t going to remain on you…off it goes. At the end of your little episode you’re weak, physically weak, and someone will say, “Well, if you are really the one that you claim and you’ve had all these experiences, then why?” They do not realize that “I do not consider the sufferings of the present time worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed in me” (Rom.8:18). I am not exempt from anything that man is heir to, and man is heir to all the nonsense of the world. It’s all within us, I know.

So here this night, the mystery of Imagination is simply the mystery of your own being. It’s the mystery of God. The more you discover the workings of your own Imagination, the more you discover the secret of God. So don’t put it aside. When you go home tonight be perfectly honest with yourself. Do you know what you want either for yourself or for another, do you really know? Well then, do what Sam did, persuade yourself that things are as you desire them to be. To the degree that you’re self-persuaded that they are so, to that degree they will become so and they will externalize themselves in your world. For these assumptions though at the moment that I make them are denied by my senses if persisted in will harden into fact. So, before you say no to it, test it! When you prove it in performance, you have found Christ. Now, do not do what my brother-in-law did; he buried the book, and forgot it.

The same family…a friend of mine, who is now gone from this world, said to me, “Neville, wouldn’t you like me to put Vicki in the social register in New York City?” I said, “Certainly not.” Well, she said, “It’s the most marvelous thing for her.” I said, “Let Vicki make that decision. She’s a child now and so she can’t possibly make that decision and I might be doing her a great injustice.” So I said, “No, Helen, thank you very much. I presume you’re in it.” She said, “Well, when I was born I was registered in it and all my children, three of them, and my husband. My second husband, he came over, and I got him into it. So we’re all in the social register…my entire background. So it’s easy for me to get Vicki in the social register.” So I declined. Well, casually I said it to Cynthia, Sam’s wife, I think a month later, and she said, “You think she would sponsor me?” I said, “Why not? I’ll ask her.” So I called Helen and said, “Helen, my sister-in-law, Bill’s sister, would like to be in the social register.” She said, “Certainly, Neville, I’ll get her in.” That book is so prominently displayed in her living room that you can’t miss it. They leave it ___(??). It’s all over the living room and quite casually open at the page. She loves that sort of life. Naturally, she’s not going to take the story which is the true story. For that thing in the social register isn’t true at all. Yes that she graduated from Smith, that her husband graduated from Harvard these are true. But I mean the phoniness surrounding the whole thing. But the story I told concerning his use of Christ, that’s the true story, and you’ll find it if the book is not out of print called The Power of Awareness. That’s where I tell this story.

So when you go to bed tonight, instead of just sleeping as you do normally, dare to assume things are as you desire them to be and try to catch the mood that would be your mood were it so. Try to catch the feeling of the wish fulfilled…and then sleep. Tomorrow night do the same thing. The next night do the same. And while you are sleeping, this immortal you will be pulling every wire in the world that is necessary to bring to birth your assumption.

Now let us go into the Silence.


In Luke regarding the unclean spirit that comes out of a man, I don’t understand it.


When the unclean spirit has been caste out of a man? This is a disembodied idea. For a demon is not some disembodied spirit; it’s a prejudice, a superstition, a false pride. All these bedevil man. And so you entertain one and you’re going to get two, you get seven, and they never stop there. You start with one superstition and all of a sudden you have a thousand of them, but they have to have a man as the agent to express themselves. They can’t express themselves without a man. Man is the agent that expresses all the unlovely things in the world…these unclean spirits. So in my brother-in-law’s case it was a false pride, and so he entertained this false pride that he went to Harvard. All right, so what! And then he was a banker…alright, wonderful…and now he’s in the social register. He won’t tell you that I got him there at the same time I declined for my daughter. She’s never expressed any opinion since that she wanted it. I told her afterwards that I said no to it, that you, when you get old enough to know what’s what in this world, you may decide you want it and it’s always there for you if you want it.

So the water displaces it, it passes through and it must go back to a man. So the idea goes back to Sam. He got the job, he knows exactly how he did it, and now he puts it behind him and denies the ladder by which he did ascend. So the demons returned…all the false pride. He will think he’s doing a wonderful job for God on Sunday morning and there he is every Sunday morning, regardless of weather, as the head usher ushering all the ladies and gentlemen down to their pews, and he thinks he’s doing God a service. He knows nothing of God. They’ll sing all the hymns, get on their knees, and pray to what? Certainly not to any God, for the only one that you could ever know is the God that you know in the first-person, present tense. You’ll know him within yourself and his name is I AM. That’s his eternal, immortal being. So you’ll know him.

When you go outside and turn to a false god, you’ll never find him. When you start with one idol, you multiply it. So these are the demons spoken of in scripture. You have a superstition, you can’t stop at one. Were you ever in the theater? There you find them by the millions. Can’t whistle in your own room, you can’t put your shoe above where your head would be, can’t open an umbrella in the place, and multiply them. Talk about the superstitions, go into the theater, and I’m not fooling. They make you go outside and do all kinds of nonsense if you absent mindedly whistle in your own dressing room or do any of these silly little things. But they really believe it brings bad luck and to the degree that they are self-convinced that it does, it does.

So these are the demons that possess the mind of man. And certainly false pride is a frightful demon: I must be seen with what I call the proper people, and I can’t be seen in certain areas, certain restaurants, and certain this, that and the other, because it isn’t the thing to do. Well, that’s false pride.


Like Jean Dixon? You know who she is?


Yes, I’ve heard of her.


Ok. She prophesizes…like she gets these messages. Don’t you think it’s her Imagination that when she thinks something dire is going to happen and says it that that’s why it happens…because she has imagined it? Is that the way it works?


First of all, she’s not a woman of vision. She’s not a woman who actually has the vision of scripture, but she can become self-persuaded using any little technique. She can use cards, use the stars, use monkey bones, and to the degree that she is self-persuaded that these things mean what she thinks they do, well, to that degree they’ll come to pass. But you never hear them tell you of their mistakes. For instance, we had two candidates running for the presidency. All right, you can tell them both secretly that you’re going to be president. One has to be, so you’re fifty percent right. Well, that’s such a major thing, but you’re also fifty percent wrong. But you don’t talk about that…only talk about that which has been publicized ……?.


……….? how to shorten the time period?


I would call it intensity of feeling. If you can feel the mood and become possessed by that mood. If I could only catch the mood…what would the feeling be like if it were true? Just what would it be like? Well, dwell upon just what it would be like…and suddenly you’re bathed in that mood. Now sleep in it. Your own wonderful human Imagination is doing it, and one day when you least expect it that same being is doing it. That same being that you exercised without beholding him will be beheld because you won’t see him as another. You will see the events related only to him, and this time they are related to you. And then you will know who you are.




When you find him, you are not in this dimension at all. It is not in this world at all. One day you’ll discover that the story of scripture is true, that in the end there is only one man, and all are gathered into one man and you are that one man. God is not a ….?; God is a person…one man as told us in Ephesians: “There’s only one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all” . So in the end there is really only one. Here is a universally-diffused individuality gradually being gathered together one by one by one into one body, one Spirit, one Lord. So you will not be some little thing; you will be the actual body after the journey. And it’s a terrible journey. 

No one denies the journey in this world is a horrible journey. No matter how luscious a life may be, there must come in the lives of all those moments when you are sad. You must say goodbye to your mother, your father, your husband or wife or child through the gate of death and you are left behind to mourn. Well, if you don’t have a heart then you can take it. When you love someone dearly it’s difficult to say goodbye, because clothed as you are in these garments of flesh and blood you miss the physical contact, you miss the voice, you miss the touch, you miss everything about the one you loved dearly. And you’re kidding yourself if you say ….?..that. You don’t do it that way…not if you have a heart.




I have Your Faith is Your Fortune coming out in about two weeks. That’s been out of print for years. Now I have one with five books in it called Resurrection and they are out of print, four of them, for years. Well, my friend brought it back and I added one chapter…rather long…I call it a book, a small book, and it bears the title of that new one, called Resurrection. So there are four that are out of print plus the one that’s new. And now Your Faith is Your Fortune will be in, I think the publication is the 16th, and DeVorss tells me that it will be ready by the 16th of this month.

No, it is not revised. They couldn’t use the old plates because they’re worn out. That book has gone way beyond what I thought. I always thought that it went 70,000. It’s well over a hundred thousand that it sold and they use the same plates. But the plates are so completely worn he had to set it from the beginning to the very end, so he has placed it differently and it’s not such a crowded page. It has wider spaces so it’s a much bigger book in appearance but the identical content.

Well, until the next time. We will be here Monday and Friday nights. Thank you. Good night.

Understanding the Law of Assumption “I can be what I will to be.”

Understanding the Law of Assumption “I can be what I will to be.”

1. The Essence Behind “I”

The “I” within us isn’t limited to our physical body or mind; it’s the driving force that directs our actions and decisions. Understanding this “I” unlocks a new level of power.

2. Directing Body and Mind

The “I” must control both our body and mind, guiding their actions and choices. When we grasp this, a newfound sense of power emerges, transforming our lives.

3. True Self

Our personality is a collection of habits and traits, shaped by past thinking. But it doesn’t define the authentic “I” that lies within us.

4. The Spiritual “I” in Action

Saying “I think” or “I go” is our way of tapping into the essence of the spiritual “I.” This spiritual force is the wellspring of true power, awaiting recognition.

5. The Power to Think

The greatest gift of the “I” is the power to think. However, few master constructive thinking, or correctly, consequently they achieve only indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind. When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.

6. The Wisdom of the Trained Mind

A mature mind understands that transactions should benefit all parties involved. Profiting from others’ vulnerabilities only leads to downfall.

7. Unity in Diversity

Recognizing that each individual is part of a greater whole enhances our advantage in life. By embracing this principle, we focus on what truly matters. This is because a part cannot antagonize any other part, but, on the contrary, the welfare of each part depends upon a recognition of the interests of the whole.

8. The Advantage of the Mindful

Those who grasp this principle thrive—they conserve energy, concentrate effectively, and invest themselves where it matters most.

9. Effort and Realization

Achievement requires genuine effort. f you cannot do these things it is because you have thus far not made the necessary effort. Now is the time to make the effort. The result will be exactly in proportion to the effort expended To strengthen your will and accomplish your goals, use the affirmation “I can be what I will to be.”

10. The Power of Continuous Affirmation

Repeating the affirmation, realizing the essence of the “I,” and aligning with constructive goals makes you unbeatable, harmonizing with the universe’s creative energy.

11. Making Affirmation a Habit

For lasting change, infuse the affirmation into your daily routine until it becomes an inherent part of you. Commitment is key to success. “I can be what I will to be.”

12. Commitment and the Die Cast

Commitment is crucial. Once you set your mind on a goal, remain steadfast, unyielding to obstacles or distractions. The die is cast; there’s no debate.

13. Mastering Self-Control

Begin with small goals, gradually gaining self-mastery. Remember, controlling oneself often proves harder than controlling external circumstances. Psychology tells us that when we start something and do not complete it, or make a resolution and do not keep it, we are forming the habit of failure. If you do not intend to do a thing, do not start; if you do start, see it through even if the heavens fall; if you make up your mind to do something, do it

14. The “World Within”

Self-control opens the door to the “World Within,” shaping the external world. You become a creator, influencing your reality effortlessly. You will have found the “World Within” which controls the world without; you will have become irresistible; men and things will respond to your every wish without any apparent effort on your part

15. The Inner Connection

Recognize that the “World Within” is connected to the universal energy, an idea accepted by both science and religion. This connection holds incredible creative power.

16. Power in the Present

This inner power is your key to success. The energy is within you; utilize it through positive actions and thoughts.

17. The Vitality of Service

Power is found in service, in giving back. By becoming a channel for universal energy, you not only receive but also positively impact the world.

18. Quietude and Connectivity

Stop obsessing over plans and allow silence to reign. Connect with the boundless potential within you, accessing a universe of possibilities. Dwell in the consciousness of your unity with Omnipotence. “Still water runs deep”; contemplate the multitudinous opportunities to which you have spiritual access by the Omnipresence of power. Be still and know.

19. Visualizing and Creating

Visualize the outcomes your spiritual connections can bring about. Realize that all things possess a spiritual essence; when that essence is gone, so is life. Realize the fact that the essence and soul of all things is spiritual and that the spiritual is the real, because it is the life of all there is; when the spirit is gone, the life is gone; it is dead; it has ceased to exist.

20. The Creative Process

Your mental activities create the world around you. By understanding this cause-and-effect relationship, you become a conscious creator of your reality.

21. Cultivating Mental Strength

Just as physical strength requires exercise, mental strength is developed through practice. Repeated thoughts become habits that shape your reality.

22. From Physical Relaxation to Mental Freedom

After mastering physical relaxation, the next step is mental freedom. Let go of negative emotions by consciously deciding to release them and persistently doing so. Over-work or over-play or over-bodily activity of any kind produces conditions of mental apathy and stagnation which makes it impossible to do the more important work which results in a realization of conscious power.

23. Intellect Over Emotion

Allow your intellect, not emotions, to guide you. While it might be challenging initially, practice leads to mastery, enhancing control over your thoughts. Thought is a mode of motion and is carried by the law of vibration the same as light or electricity. It is given vitality by the emotions through the law of love; it takes form and expression by the law of growth; it is a product of the spiritual “I,” hence its Divine, spiritual, and creative nature.

24. Shaping Reality Through Thought

Your thoughts are the architects of your reality. in order to express power, abundance or any other constructive purpose, the emotions must be called upon to give feeling to the thought so that it will take form.

Cultivating Intimacy and Reigniting Desire: The Power of Healthy Arguments in Marriage

Cultivating Intimacy and Reigniting Desire: The Power of Healthy Arguments in Marriage

After the honeymoon phase, many couples experience a decline in sexual desire and intimacy in their marriage. The initial sparks of passion may dwindle, and the routine of daily life takes over. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, embracing healthy arguments can be the key to keeping the flame alive and sustaining a strong and passionate connection with your spouse. In this blog post, we will explore the role of healthy arguments in nurturing intimacy and manifesting a deeper love in your marriage.

Feeling unseen and unheard in a marriage can be an incredibly isolating and lonely experience. When we express our concerns or complaints, and they are consistently met with dismissal or shut down, it can leave us feeling invalidated and invisible. Every time our attempts to communicate are met with resistance, it reinforces the belief that our feelings and needs don’t matter.

Over time, this pattern can erode the emotional connection between partners, leading to a profound sense of disconnection. The longing to be seen and heard is a fundamental human need, especially in an intimate relationship. When this need goes unmet, it can create a deep sense of loneliness and emotional distance, further exacerbating the challenges in the relationship. Creating an environment of open communication and genuine understanding is vital to nurturing intimacy and building a stronger emotional bond in a marriage.

Feeling unseen and unheard in a marriage can have a significant impact on sexual desire and intimacy. When partners don’t feel emotionally connected or understood, it creates a disconnect that extends to the physical aspect of the relationship. Sexual desire is intricately linked to emotional intimacy, trust, and vulnerability. When individuals feel emotionally distant or invalidated, it becomes challenging to feel safe and open in the context of physical intimacy.

Understanding the Erosion of Sexual Desire:

In a relationship where communication is shut down or met with resistance, one or both partners may begin to suppress their sexual desires and needs. Over time, this suppression can lead to a decline in sexual desire and passion in the relationship.

Moreover, feeling unseen and unheard can lead to a lack of emotional connection, making sex feel mechanical and devoid of intimacy. When emotional needs go unmet, it becomes difficult to engage fully in sexual experiences, as they may feel disconnected and unfulfilling.

It’s important to recognize that emotional and sexual intimacy are intertwined in a healthy marriage. Addressing the underlying issues of feeling unseen and unheard through open and honest communication can foster a deeper emotional connection and reignite sexual desire. By actively listening to each other’s needs and concerns, partners can create a safe space for vulnerability, leading to a more fulfilling and passionate physical relationship.

As time goes on, couples may find that the once fiery passion in their relationship has fizzled out. The lack of sexual desire can be attributed to various factors, one of which is the feeling of not being seen or heard by our partner. When communication breaks down, intimacy suffers, and sex becomes a mere mechanical act, devoid of the emotional connection it once had. The absence of intimacy in the relationship can lead to a gradual decline in sexual desire, creating a cycle that worsens over time.

The Power of Healthy Arguments:

Contrary to common belief, healthy arguments can be a catalyst for reigniting desire and intimacy in marriage. Engaging in constructive disagreements allows both partners to express their thoughts, emotions, and needs openly. When conflicts are resolved with understanding and empathy, it strengthens the emotional bond between spouses. The key is to approach arguments with respect and a genuine desire to find common ground, rather than resorting to hurtful or destructive behavior.

Breaking Free from the Fear of Conflict:

In our culture, there is a prevalent fear of conflict in relationships. Many believe that arguing indicates a problem within the marriage. However, embracing healthy arguments as an opportunity for growth and connection can transform the way we view disagreements. Instead of avoiding conflict, couples should see it as a chance to address underlying issues, improve communication, and enhance intimacy.

Nurturing Intimacy Through Scheduled Arguments:

One powerful approach to maintain intimacy is by scheduling dedicated time for arguments or discussions each week. This might sound counterintuitive, but setting aside a specific time to address concerns and express feelings can prevent them from festering and causing more significant problems later on. During these scheduled discussions, couples should create a safe space for open dialogue, active listening, and mutual understanding. Remember, the goal is not to win an argument but to deepen the emotional connection between partners.

Building a Manifesting Love Ritual:

Alongside scheduled arguments, couples can also establish a manifesting love ritual. This ritual could involve sharing appreciations and expressing gratitude for each other daily. Additionally, engaging in small acts of kindness, surprises, or affectionate gestures can keep the love and desire alive. Consistent effort in nurturing the relationship can lead to a profound sense of closeness and emotional intimacy.

The Continuous Journey of Love

Remember, love is an ongoing journey of exploration and growth. Embracing healthy arguments as opportunities for understanding and connection can lead to a more profound and fulfilling love. Don’t shy away from disagreements; instead, approach them with empathy and curiosity. With the right mindset and approach, couples can reignite the spark of desire, foster deeper intimacy, and manifest a love that continues to grow and flourish in their marriage.”

The Law of Assumption: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

The Law of Assumption: Using The Power of Your Subconscious Mind (What the Vagus Nerve!)

The Interaction of Conscious and Subconscious Mind

The conscious and subconscious minds play a vital role in shaping our experiences and realities. Judge Troward’s beautiful analogy highlights how these two aspects of our mind are intertwined. The cerebro-spinal system, centered in the brain, is the seat of our conscious mind, while the sympathetic system, located in the Solar Plexus, serves as the organ of our subconscious mind. Together, they form the channel through which our thoughts and perceptions impact our physical and emotional well-being.

The Sympathetic System and the Solar Plexus

Often referred to as the “sun of the body,” the Solar Plexus is a crucial center for distributing the energy generated by our body. Our mental actions, especially those that unconsciously support vital bodily functions, find their channel through the sympathetic system. Understanding the significance of the Solar Plexus allows us to tap into the immense power it holds over our physical and emotional health.

The Vagus Nerve: Bridging the Two Systems

The vagus nerve serves as a vital bridge connecting the conscious and subconscious realms. As it passes from the cerebral region to the thorax and further into the diaphragm, it merges with the sympathetic system. This connection reinforces the idea of man being a single entity, both physically and mentally.

The Power of Thought: From Conscious to Subconscious

Every thought that enters our conscious mind is subjected to our power of reasoning. Once our objective mind verifies the thought’s truth, it is then sent to the Solar Plexus, the brain of our subconscious mind. There, thoughts are transformed into reality, becoming impervious to any counter-arguments. Our subconscious mind doesn’t engage in debates; instead, it acts and accepts the conclusions set by our conscious mind.

The Solar Plexus: The Sun of Your Body

Visualizing the Solar Plexus as the sun of our body helps us grasp its significance better. It radiates energy throughout our entire being, enveloping us in an atmosphere of life force. When this radiation is strong, we become magnetic, exuding personal magnetism that influences those around us positively.

Personal Magnetism and Energy Radiance

When the Solar Plexus is in active operation and radiates life, energy, and vitality to every part of our body and everyone we encounter, it generates pleasant sensations. People are drawn to our presence, finding comfort and peace in our company.

Active Solar Plexus, Active Well-Being

However, any interruption in this energy radiation leads to unpleasant sensations, hindering the flow of life force to various parts of the body. This interruption can manifest as physical, mental, or environmental ailments, emphasizing the importance of keeping the Solar Plexus active and vibrant.

Understanding the Impact of Interruptions

Physical conditions may arise when the sun of our body fails to generate sufficient energy for a particular part. Mental and emotional well-being are also tied to the vitality provided by the subconscious mind to support conscious thoughts. Moreover, interruptions can disturb the connection between the subconscious and Universal mind.

Physical, Mental, and Environmental Effects

The Solar Plexus serves as the point where the individual meets the Universal, the finite converges with the Infinite, and the Invisible transforms into the visible. This limitless reservoir of life force allows us to generate boundless energy, intelligence, and creativity from within.

The Solar Plexus: Where the Infinite Meets the Finite

The Solar Plexus holds an omnipotent position as it connects with all life and intelligence. By directing our conscious mind, we can determine the outcomes we desire, and our subconscious mind will carry out these plans with unwavering commitment.

Conscious Thought: Mastering Your Solar Center

The conscious mind acts as the master of the Solar Plexus, controlling the quality of thoughts that it radiates. Positive, courageous, and confident thoughts produce a corresponding state, allowing us to make use of our personal sun to its fullest potential.

Let Your Light Shine: Transmuting Conditions into Success

By allowing our light to shine brightly, we can transmute undesirable conditions into sources of pleasure and profit. Embracing the Law of Assumption empowers us to radiate positive energy and attract abundance and prosperity into our lives.

The Role of Non-Resistant Thought

Non-resistant thoughts expand the Solar Plexus, promoting mental peace and clarity. Conversely, resistant thoughts contract it, causing mental unrest, anxiety, and worry. Cultivating thoughts of courage, power, and hope amplifies our inner radiance.

Fear: The Enemy to Be Destroyed

Fear emerges as the primary impediment to letting our light shine. It clouds our judgment, making us fearful of the past, present, and future, and hinders our potential for growth and success.

Embracing Your Oneness with Infinite Power

Overcoming fear and embracing our oneness with the Infinite power empowers us to shine our light brightly. This newfound connection with Universal strength dispels all gloom and brings forth boundless power, energy, and life.

When You Are One with Infinite Power

Realizing our oneness with Infinite power allows us to consciously overcome adversities through the sheer power of thought. Fear loses its grip, and we unlock our true birthright.

Attitude of Mind: Shaping Your Experiences

Our attitude towards life shapes the experiences we encounter. Expecting nothing leads to receiving nothing, while expecting great things leads to abundant rewards. Asserting ourselves and believing in our ideas help us navigate harsh critiques and bring our visions to fruition.

Overcoming Criticism with Inner Power

A person who acknowledges their Solar Plexus and radiates courage, confidence, and power has no fear of criticism or judgment. They are too preoccupied with their inner energy to be deterred by external negativity.

Radiate Health, Strength, and Harmony

Realizing our ability to consciously radiate health, strength, and harmony connects us with Infinite Strength. This knowledge fosters fearlessness and empowers us to navigate life’s challenges with grace.

The Practical Application of Infinite Strength

Putting the Law of Assumption into practical application solidifies our understanding of this principle. Through practice and exercises, we become adept at harnessing the power of our subconscious mind.

Impressing the Subconscious Mind

Mentally concentrating on our desires impresses our subconscious mind, initiating the process of transformation. This simple yet powerful technique sets causes in motion to bring about the results we seek.
