Neville Goddard was one of the quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years...In a simple, yet somehow elegant one-hour lecture, Neville was able to clarify the nature of God and God's relationship to every person. He spoke of God in intimate terms as though he knew god very well, which he did. --Roy Eugene Davis
About the Author
Born in Barbados, West Indies, Neville came to the United States to study drama at the age of seventeen. In 1932 he gave up the theater to devote his attention to his studies in mysticism when he began his lecture career in New York City. After traveling throughout the country, he eventually made his home in Los Angeles where, in the late 1950 s, he gave a series of talks on television, and for many years, lectured regularly to capacity audiences at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. Although Neville s career peaked in the late 1950s and early 60s, his message continues to find a place in the hearts of spiritual readers throughout the world today. Neville Goddard was one of the more quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years.

Neville says, �Imagination is the gateway of reality�. As one reads this book, which one can be finish in one day, this idea of using one�s imagination in the basis of reality is constantly honed into the reader. Some may find his repetitive honing in of this concept too repetitive, but for me, this repetition was exactly what I needed to really grasp and truly understand the important concepts that Neville was trying to impart to the reader. Neville clarifies his concepts with actual stories of people manifesting what they imagined. Neville�s concepts are steeped in quotes from the Bible, not over done at all, which further illustrate and help the reader to grasp the concepts. �The abundant life that Christ promised us is ours to experience now, but not until we have the sense of Christ as our imagination can we experience it.�
Neville teaches the reader to use one�s imagination, with all of one�s senses, to manifest that which they desire in reality. Neville wants us to see it as fulfilled NOW, to act as if it were happening NOW and to abolish all negative thinking to the contrary. One has to let go and know that it will happen and to not wonder how or why. The mind is incredibly powerful, as Ernest Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind teaches: �Change your thoughts, change your life.� Neville says, �Man becomes what he imagines�. On both accounts � so very, very true!
The reviewer, who said that this book is not for Christians, has completely missed the entire thought and basis for this book. This book is for everyone, as one must have the belief that, Spirit, Christ, God, or what ever name you want to use, is at the heart of all we want, imagine and manifest. �Imagination is Christ in man.� Neville points this out quite clearly and often, so that the reader can grasp this main and very important concept. Neville urges the reader to �think from the end� � in other words, to imagine that what you want has come to pass. �To realize his ideal, man must first change the pattern which his imagination has followed. The way to change the outer world is to make the inner speech and action match the outer speech and action of fulfilled desire.�
I absolutely love this book and have highlighted and underlined most of the book! This is a book that needs to be read more than once and referred to again and again. It works � it truly works � but one has to step out of fear, know and have faith that it will happen and know that it comes from God, from Christ, from Spirit, from The One. �Inner speech mirrors imagination, and imagination is Christ.�
This book is powerful, it is amazing and if followed, one *will* see miracles manifest in one�s life. The other books by Neville are just as powerful � The Power of Awareness, The Law and The Promise and Your Faith is Your Fortune, are my favorites.
This is the kind of book that will become worn and torn, as one constantly refers to it time and time again � it is a classic to be savored.
Neville said to accept no idol or master, and he recognise that the only cause and power of our life is our consciousness. If you want a car or a job, you never make it an idol, nor do you worship it. But you always know that your consciousness, your "I AM" (made up of your thoughts and feelings) is the creative power to which all things are possible. Haven't you seen the word "I AM" written on some crucifix because in the Bible God told Moses his name is "I AM".
Read it and you will know that the Bible is truly allegory and symbolism, not historical facts. For almost all the names in it, if you understood Hebrew and the meanings of each Hebrew alphabet, you would easily see it is plain symbolism. Even the events are symbolism, much as the Wizard of Oz which tells man that what he is seeking is already within. Example, Peter(who symbolises Faith) cuts off the soldier's ear (symbol of old hearing/understanding), and Jesus (awakened consciousness) restores and heals the ear (new hearing/understanding from the awakened consciousness). And even Jesus went to the Garden of Gethshemen, and 'Geth' meant "to press out", and shemen is 'an oily substance' (similar to our modern word semen). This was a symbolism of the creative act of consciousness, which the ancients likened to man's procreative act, hence the hidden meaning. And while He went there to meditate, he asked his diciples (the disciplined faculties of mind - such as faith, hearing, understanding etc) to stay on watch at the door(of consciousness).
This book is highly recommended for serious christians and non-christians alike, anyone who would like to know the truth about the Bible's hidden meanings. It takes real FAITH to break away from the beliefs of the majority which were taught by "bible scholars"(what makes them scholars anyway? just because they attended sunday church and reads the bible everyday and never read any other book outside the bible because it is 'sin'?) and preachers who reads the bible as fact and history just because they heard their preachers talk about it since they were a child. Can you let go of past preconceived beliefs which you were comfortable with, and read this book with an open mind to find out the real hidden messages? Or someone who wants to believe what he believed since young, just because the world believes in it, just to have a comfortable sense of belonging? Do not leave your spirituality and quest for truth in the hands of the church or some temple and so called bible scholars, and let them spoonfeed you every sunday. That is the lazy man's way. What the church teach is if you say you believe Jesus and praise him as God, then you are saved and go to heaven. Can salvation truly be as simple as that? The concept of 'believe' has been truly misunderstood.
The camel can pass thru the the hole on the wall of Jerusalem called the "needle's eye", only if the camel lets go of his pack on his back (of dogma and past beliefs).
