"Mastery of self-control of your thoughts and feelings is your Highest Achievement." (Feeling is the Secret)
What I do prefer done unto me, feel it is done unto you or another. This is the whole law of a full and happy life. EVERYTHING ELSE IS JUST COMMENTARY.
Nine Trannies -
· Transformation – the ability to change anything from what it is into something different
· Transmigration – the ability to move from one location to another, without car, plane train or bus – migrating across space (not time).
· Transfiguration – the ability to morph something from what it appears to be into something different
· Trans-sexualness – the ability to change sexual energy of any moment or anything at will
· Transpiration – the ability to change something that is going to transpire in the future and change it into something that doesn’t have to be, so something else can occur
· Transmutation – the ability to change something from what it currently is into something you would like it to be, which would be a mutation from what it is into something greater
· Translocation – the ability to move something from one location to another
· Transliteration – ability to talk in any language and understand all languages
· Transmogrification – the ability to shift what you look like into something different. Shape shifting – like you could change yourself from being a man to a woman
Note: These perhaps could have been listed under 'T' and are actually not a Neville thing. These are from Gary Douglas, founder, of Access Consciousness. I desired to have this reference here. My website. My rules.
Occupant Power - So I tell you: master the art of moving from one state to another state. You are NOT the state; you never have been and you never will be. The state--if you are going to condemn, condemn the state. But why condemn anything? Move him out of a state into another state. Move yourself out of one state into another state. All the infinite states are simply to satisfy the hungers of men. Go into the state before you are qualified. Go into the state and stay there. The state has ALL things necessary to externalize itself. You are the OCCUPANT POWER. You have to go into the state and dwell there. (from Justified States lecture)
Operant Power - You are the causative power. Bear in mind, because we are the causative power it doesn't work itself. It words and operates because I AM the Operant Power. Am I willing to use it consciously?
Opinion of Another - If you may change your opinion of another, then what you now believe about the other cannot be ABSOLUTELY TRUE and is ONLY relatively true. If I may change my interesting point of view (iPOV) of my body and/or me, then what I NOW believe about me cannot be absolutely TRUE and is ONLY relatively TRUE.
Perfect Law of Liberty - is to persist in the assumption that your desire is ALREADY FULFILLED. You are not a 'forgetful hearer' when you keep the feeling of your wish fulfilled constantly alive in your consciousness. This makes you a 'doer of the work' and you are blessed in your deed by the inevitable realization of your desire. You MUST be doers of the Law of Assumption. For without application the most profound understanding will not produce any desired result. (Chpt. XVIII Power of Awareness)
Prayer (in no particular order) 1. The seemingly harmless habit of 'talking to yourself' is the most fruitful form of prayer. A mental argument with the subjective image of another is the surest way to pray for an argument. You are asking to be offended by the other when you objectively meet. S/he is compelled to act in a manner displeasing to you, unless before the meeting you countermand or modify your order by subjectively affirming a change. 2. 'Ye are the Temple of the Living God.' A Temple made without hands. It is written, 'My house shall be a house of prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves.' The thieves who rob you are your own false beliefs. (Faith is your Fortune) 3. To pray means to give thanks for already having what you desire. Can't you see why the millions of of prayers seemly go unanswered? Men pray to a God that does not exist. For instance: to be conscious of being poor and to pray to a God for riches is to be rewarded with that which you are conscious of being--which is poverty. Prayers to be SUCESSFUL MUST BE CLAIMING rather than begging--so if you would pray for riches turn from your picture of poverty by denying the very evidence of your senses and assume the NATURE of BEING WEALTHY.
Power of Intervention - you possess the power of intervention, the power which ENABLES you to ALTER the course of your future. The process of rising from your present concept to a higher concept of yourself is the means of ALL TRUE progress. The HIGHER CONCEPT is waiting for you to incarnate it in the world of experience.
PROMISE, the - "Whosoever hath, to him it shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he seemeth to have." Hold fast, in your imagination, to ALL that is lovely and of good report, for the lovely and the good are ESSENTIAL in YOUR LIFE if it is to be worthwhile. ASSUME IT! You do this by imagining that 1. you already are what you want to be, and 2. you already have what you want to have. As a man thinketh in his hear, so is he. Be still and know you are that which you desire to be, and you will NEVER have to search for it. (Chpt. IX Power of Awareness)
Prune - your imagination which in its uncontrolled state, expends its energy in useless or destructive thoughts and feelings. You, just as the vine is pruned by cutting away its useless branches and roots, PRUNE your imagination by withdrawing your ATTENTION from ALL unlovely and destructive ideas and CONCENTRATING on the IDEAL you wish to attain. (Chpt. VIII Power of Awareness) Q
Redemptive Power - Imagination is the ONLY redemptive power in the Universe. (Chpt. III Power of Awareness) According to the dictionary, redemption is action of saving or being saved from sin, error or evil.
Renounce - When you RENOUNCE, you take your ATTENTION from it and GIVE YOUR ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WANT. (Chpt. VIII Power of Awareness)
Resist - When you RESIST, you give it your ATTENTION. You continue to make it REAL. (Chpt. VIII Power of Attention)
Reverence - It is when your feeling of reverence is most intense that you are closest to God. When you are closest to God, your life is richest. (Chpt. XXVII, Power of Awareness)
Reverie - is the result of a uncontrolled imagination...usually just a daydream. What is required is to be in a state of controlled imagination and a steadied, concentrated attention with a minimum of effort sufficing to keep your consciousness filled with the feeling of the wish fulfilled. (Chpt. XIX Power of Awareness)
Righteousness - is the consciousness of ALREADY being what you want to be. (Chpt. XIX Power of Awareness) Righteousness is not the thing itself. It is the consciousness, the feeling of already being the person you want to be, of already having the thing you desire. Righteousness is exceeded by true righteousness, which is ALWAYS the consciousness of already being that which you want to be. The Kingdom (entire creation) of God (your I AM) is within you. Righteousness is the awareness you already possess it all. (Chpt. XX Power of Awareness)
Sabbath - I AM told it happened on the Sabbath. The Sabbath is ONLY the mystical sense of stillness, when I AM unconcerned, when I AM not anxious, when I AM not looking for results, knowing that signs follow and do not precede. The Sabbath is the day of stillness wherein there is no working. When I AM not working to make it so, I AM in the Sabbath. When I AM not at all concerned about the opinion of others, when I walk as though I were, I cannot raise ONE finger to make it so: I AM in the Sabbath. I cannot be concerned as to HOW it will be, and still say, "I AM conscious of being 'it'." If/when I AM conscious of BEING free, secure, healthy and happy; I sustain these STATES of consciousness without effort or labor on my part. Therefore, I AM in the Sabbath; and because it was the Sabbath he rose and walked. (Neville Goddard lecture, Consigned to Disobedience)
Satan - "Whoever believes that what he says will come to pass, it shall be done for him." Mark 11:23
'IT' is DONE FOR HIM!
I can persuade myself it is TRUE.
Then I physically do nothing.
"Whatever you ask in prayer, believe you have received it, and you will" Mark 11:24
IMAGINATION is able to do ALL that I ask.
These are ACTS of FAITH.
Neville shares, "Yet don't come with ANY challenge to cause me to doubt, because I will not doubt the Lord."
I made my choice:
"Choose this day whom you will serve."
I have chosen the Lord to serve, and the Lord is my own wonderful human imagination.
I imagine the being to whom I turn KNOWS EVERYONE. He knows every being in the world.
You know why?
"Because ALL things by a law divine in one another's being mingle." --Blake
So, he knows the ONE who did it and can instantly change the man's attitude toward the act, and have him do it...compelled to do it. Now, if I had not acted, my luggage never would have returned. So we are the operant power. It doesn't work itself.
Do I believe to the point of acting upon it? Full Faith?
You discover in the end 'all things work for good with those who love the Lord.' Romans 8:28
So everything will work for good.
You do it ALL in your imagination.
IMAGINATION is able to do ALL that I ask.
And EVERYONE in this world will work for you.
If it takes a million people to bring what you have just done in your Imagination to pass, they will take a million people and they will do it. They will do it not even knowing that they are doing it. ALL will work toward the fulfillment of what you have done in your IMAGINATION.
You simply do it (imagine) and completely commit yourself.
Thus, FAITH is nothing more than subjective appropriation of the objective hope.
Believe that. Believe your Imaginal ACT.
Believe imagination is able to do ALL that I ASK.
For whoever believes, what is said will come to pass.
It will be done FOR YOU.
You have sublime spirit of confidence, "All right, I've done it."
It's easy to say, but do you believe it?
Then walk as though it were true.
Because these precepts are to be taken literally: "Whatever you ask in prayer believe you have received it, and you will." Mark 11:24
When you really, truly believe you have received it, then you walk as though it is true and then YOU ARE NOT CONCERNED.
ANY DOUBT, shout it out
"Get thee behind me, Satan."
as one with Full and Absolute Divine Authority,
Well, Satan is ONLY the personification of the doubt in man. There is no being called Satan.
Anyone and everyone in the world can play the part of Satan.
The pope can play the part of Satan tonight by challenging me (Neville) to say what I AM saying without being ordained. He could challenge me, and in a certain manner, if I were other than what I AM, he could fool me into believing that he holds the authority.
So, anyone or anything in the world may try to dethrone you and move you from the being you've found.
Tell them, "get behind me."
You have made your choice and the choice is,
I serve the Lord.
And the Lord is my own wonderful human Imagination.
May I tell you, you will not fail. You will only succeed.
And so, is IMAGINATION sufficient?
Well, sufficient so far as I'm (Neville) concerned, but if you think it is insufficient, well then, to you it is insufficient.
Yet, may I tell you, it is not insufficient.
Imagination is the Power of the Universe, the power that created and sustains the universe. It is your own wonderful human IMAGINATION. (Neville Goddard lecture, Imagination's Power)
Scribes and Pharisees - from the Matthew 5:20 verse: 'Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.' Scribes and Pharisees means those who are influenced and governed by the outer appearances--the rules and customs of the society in which they live, the vain desire to be thought well of by other men. Unless this state of mind is exceeded, your life will be one of limitation--of failure to attain your desires--of missing the mark--of sin. (Chpt. XX Power of Awareness)
Silence - It is when your feeling of reverence is most intense that you are closest to God. When you are closest to God, your life is richest. Our deepest feelings are precisely those we are least able to express, and even in the act of adoration, silence is our highest praise. (Chpt. XXVII, Power of Awareness)
Sin - Psychological meaning of sin is to miss the mark. Not to attain your desire, not to be the person you desire to be is sinning. Righteousness is the consciousness of already being what you desire to be. It is a changeless educative law that effect MUST follow causes. ONLY by righteousness can you be saved from sinning. (Chpt. XX, Power of Awareness)
State - We are pilgrims moving through states. So I tell you: master the art of moving from one state to another state. You are not the state; you never have been and you never will be. All these infinite states are simply to satisfy the hungers of men. So you want to be good, as you understand 'good' to be? You want to be wealthy, as you understand it? You want to be famous, as you understand it? All these are states. Go into the state before you are qualified. Go into the state and stay there. The STATE has all the things necessary to externalize itself. But YOU ARE THE OCCUPANT POWER. You have to go into the state and dwell there. So here: you can be what you want to be, if you know that all of these are only states. And in the end, you are justified. You're completely exonerated. You are acquitted; divinely acquitted. Eventually, you will completely awake with the GIFT. The gift is God himself. There's NOTHING but God in this world; but nothing but God. When I say I AM that's God. Not every moment of time are we alert to these states. We can fall into it by reading the newspaper, hearing a news bulletin, by a little conversation with a friend and we slip innocently into a state. The state isn't concerned; you animated it, you made it alive when you entered it. Because you are the ONLY resurrecting power in the world. You are the resurrecting, living power of the world. and that power is your own wonderful human imagination. (Justified State lecture)
Sublime Spirit of Confidence and Determination - disregard appearances, conditions, in FACT ALL evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire. REST in the ASSUMPTION that you are ALREADY what you wish to be, for in that determined assumption you and your Infinite Being are merged in creative UNITY, and with your Infinite Being (GOD) all things are possible. God NEVER fails. GOD ONLY SUCCEEDS. (Chpt. XVII Power of Awareness)
Supreme Truth - 'HE' is your imagination. There is ONLY ONE substance: consciousness. It is your imagination which forms this substance into concepts, which concepts are then manifested as conditions, circumstances and physical objects. Thus, IMAGINATION made your world. This SUPREME TRUTH with but few exceptions man is not conscious of. The mystery, Christ in you, is your imagination, by which your world is molded. The hope of glory is your awareness of the ability to rise perpetually to higher levels. Christ is NOT to be found in history nor in external forms. You find Christ ONLY when you become aware of the fact that your imagination is the ONLY redemptive power. When this is discovered, the 'towers of dogma will have heard the trumpets of TRUTH, and, like the walls of Jericho, crumble to dust.' (Chpt. XI Power of Awareness)
Surrender Self - through the MASTERY of your ASSUMPTIONS, you are in TRUTH enabled to MASTER your life. It is thus that the Ladder of Life is ascended: thus, the IDEAL is realized. The clue to the real purpose of life is to surrender yourself to your IDEAL with such AWARENESS of ITS REALITY that you begin to live the life of the IDEAL and no longer your own life as it was prior to this surrender. Each assumption has its corresponding world. If you are truly observant, you will notice the power of your assumptions to change circumstances which appear wholly immutable (unable to be changed). (Chpt. XVII Power of Awareness)
Thinking from the end - this is the third step in the assumption of the wish already fulfilled. Thinking from the end with the feeling of accomplishment. The secret of thinking from the end is to enjoy being it. The moment you make it pleasurable and imagine that you are it, you begin thinking from the end. (Chpt. XIX Power of Awareness)
Trees of Righteousness - NOW is the time to CONTROL YOUR IMAGINATION and give beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called Trees of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord that HE might be glorified. You give beauty when you concentrate attention on things as you would like them to be. You give JOY when you maintain a JOYOUS attitude regardless of unfavorable circumstance. You give praise when you maintain a confident attitude. In the Bible, 'tree' is synonymous with man. You become a TREE of RIGHTEOUSNESS when the above mental states are a PERMANENT part of your consciousness. You are a planting of the Lord when ALL your thoughts are TRUE thoughts. (Chpt. VIII Power of Awareness)
Trespass - Another word for sin in the Bible is trespass. In our wonderful Lord's Prayer, 'Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.' (Matthew 6:12) It's a minor infraction of this principle. Trespass means the 'individual lapse, just a temporary lapse.' So that tonight you and I begin to discuss a personality. What am I doing discussing a personality? He's ONLY in a STATE. So I think he's unemployed; and you and I get into a discussion and discuss a man who is unemployed and we see him as unemployed and begin to say, well, the conditions are bad or maybe he wasn't good enough for the job, and SUDDENLY I AM TRESPASSING. I AM not applying this principle. I AM seeing him as the STATE. He's NOT the STATE. But I may fall into that little trap. We all do it every day and all day long. We read the paper, and a man is called a great man because he happens to be President; or he may be some other person in this world, and you read some column about him and then you are carried away with what the columnist tells us, the arguments presented to us, and suddenly begin to think as he would have you think AND YOU ARE TRESPASSING. And so every day, you and I can say the Lord's Prayer, but really saying it asks for forgiveness of our trespasses. Then HE shows mercy upon us to forgive us for having trespassed this day, for having gotten off the beam as it were. So, I ask you tonight, turn to your neighbor, turn to ALL, and maybe you could hear what the other one wants and REJOICE IN THEIR GREAT FORTUNE. And he or she hears what you want and let them REJOICE IN YOUR GREAT FORTUNE. ACTUALLY FEEL THAT IT IS TRUE. See the world as you would see it were they as they would like to be, and may I tell you, they'll become it. So, this is the story of our ability to forgive sin. (You Can Forgive Sin lecture)
TRUTH that sets you FREE - you can experience in imagination what you desire to experience in reality AND by maintaining this experience in imagination, your desire becomes an actuality. (Chpt. V Power of Awareness)
Truth you can never know intellectually - IN ALL creation, in all eternity, in all the realms of your infinite being the most wonderful fact is that which is stressed in the first chapter of this book: You are God. You are the “I am that I am.” You are consciousness. You are the creator. This is the mystery, this is the great secret known by the seers, prophets, and mystics throughout the ages. This is the truth that you can never know intellectually. Who is this you? That it is you, John Jones or Mary Smith, is absurd. It is the consciousness which knows that you are John Jones or Mary Smith. It is your greater self, your deeper self, your infinite being. Call it what you will. The important thing is that it is within you, it is you, it is your world. (Chpt. XXVII, Power of Awareness)
Unwavering Assumption - of his wish already being fulfilled is what Neville attributes to his success in innumerable instances. (Chpt. XVII Power of Awareness)
Vine - your imagination which in its uncontrolled state, expends its energy in useless or destructive thoughts and feelings. You, just as the vine is pruned by cutting away its useless branches and roots, PRUNE your imagination by withdrawing your ATTENTION from ALL unlovely and destructive ideas and CONCENTRATING on the IDEAL you wish to attain. (Chpt. VIII Power of Awareness)
Water - water is the TRUTH and the blood is the application of that truth. See the definition of BLOOD above. (By Water and Blood lecture)
When you know what you want - you MUST deliberately FOCUS your ATTENTION on the FEELING of your wish FULFILLED until that FEELING FILLS the MIND and crowds ALL other ideas out of consciousness. (Chpt. VI Power of Awareness)
Your Assumptions - the drama of life is a psychological one in which ALL the conditions, circumstances and events of your life are brought to pass by your ASSUMPTIONS. Since your life is determined by your assumption, you are forced to recognize the fact you are either a SLAVE to your assumptions or their MASTER. (Chpt. V Power of Awareness) They are the hand of God molding the firmament into the image of that which you assume. (Chpt. VII Power of Awareness)
