The Law of Assumption and The Creative Imagination
Welcome to the remarkable teachings of Neville Goddard - by far the most profound and uncompromising 'spiritual' teacher of our time.
Neville never tried to upsell his talks, start a cult, promote himself as some sacred or ascended master. He shared his profound insights and experiences in his books and talks and encouraged people in the audience to record his talks freely. His books are short, powerful and to the point.
Neville's primary teaching is that sustained imagination creates reality because consciousness is both the origin and substance of existence.
This ability to sustain a desire in your imagination, to think from it and to stay in the mood of its accomplishment is what Neville called The Law of Assumption - and for Neville this was the essential teaching of the Bible - told in the various stories and symbols of that time and place.
Later in life Neville taught what he called The Promise, which is that the Scriptures will in the fullness of time be fulfilled in the life of each individual and that biblical characters were not historical figures but states of consciousness we pass through on our way to experiencing our ultimate the unity of being - the state described as
" I and the father are one ". This teaching lost Neville a wider following but this was the ultimate truth he came to share.
Neville's teachings get to the core of authentic spirituality: your absolute responsibility for all your mental images, inner and outer conversations, moods and investments of time, thought and attention.
Because Neville's work in so many way resembles the essence of the Starkid realizations of Pure Creating Intelligence, I have included his work here for everyone who wants to truly understand and practice the 'Mystical' aspects of the Bible in an a very powerful, uncompromising and unpretentious way - no robes, no jargon, no quantum cliches, no secrets.
Many of today's so called 'spiritual teacher's' have been powerfully influenced by Neville's work but have watered it down so as not to offend anyone's spiritual sensibilities and of course to gain wider audiences for their talks and workshops. Neville never had that problem with truth or courage.
So if you're serious about the Whole Story, listen to this version of it told through Neville's books. Make time to hear them deeply and attentively and put what you realize into practice. For more of Neville's works and writings visit Neville-Goddard.org
