Neville Goddard

We review the key teachings of Neville here in this section.   In 1940 Florence Scovel Shinn wrote that we live now in the age of understanding. We have things digital, we have nuclear bombs and quantum clocks. And the tallest building has gone from the church and temple to the state building to the financial skyscraper. But a human life is either under the control of unconscious forces or it is aligned with a deepersymmetry – understanding this is what Florence Scovel Shinn meant when she said we are now in the age of understanding. She saw that we are responsible for our lives and we influence the unfolding of things. Carl Jung famously wrote:  “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” The world has given us a number of religions and holy books. All of them deal with the archetypes of human experience. And at night we dream. Our dreams represent our personal myths and our myths/religions/stories represent the universal dreams of a society – all are working with the archetypes of human experience and all have coded into them layers of meaning which we can draw enriching lessons from.  Neville Goddard is among many teachers who came along in the 20th Century who challenged human beings on their understanding of life.  He is probably the most lucid mind in the public domain when it comes to the Bible. He just knew and understood it better than any other who has walked the earth. He left a rich body of teachings. Just as Carl Jung warns that a mind that is not understood will have its strings pulled by unconscious forces, Neville pointed out that: “Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world.  The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true.  Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man.  Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.” Neville Goddard Tara Singh wrote in the introduction to the first edition of his book “The Future of Mankind: Affluence without wisdom is self-destructive.” “Life inconsistent with Higher Forces must inevitably result in consequences. The unrealities of commercialized society and the tension and stimulation it produces in an individual’s life are detrimental to say the least. These external forces deprive man of the recognition of his real nature.  The purpose of this sharing is to give a background out of which the constructive and positive may emerge. People committed to the status quo change, at best, their point of view. But to see the false as the false demands a change in life and not just a shift in perspective. We know so little about the intricacies or the laws of fulfillment, of what is internal. Yet rightness and inner conviction will make one independent of the false.” Neville didn’t believe there was such a thing as an insoluble problem. Nor do we. A bad mood can change into a good one. An Eden can flourish on this earth. Hope can take the place of fear. Thriving health can replace sickness. It’s all in our minds to change.  Here you will find the key teachings of Neville Goddard summarized.  The goal being to help your life be aligned with the laws of fulfillment.
