Who is Neville Goddard?
Neville Goddard was a man who believed strongly, as a student and teacher of the New Thought Movement which began in the late 19th century, that imagination plays a very important role in realizing the life that you desire. If you could simply imagine yourself living as if what you desire has already been actualized to the most minute detail you can think of, then it will be yours.
The central teaching of the New Thought Movement is the ability to change the world simply with the mind’s perception and Neville Goddard, in his many lectures and writings, sought to pass this message across. He simplified the process of creating your own reality to fit the life you want before you realize that you are a God on earth.
Neville Goddard’s teachings explain that the Bible, God, and what the ancients preach, are hidden parables meant to show us that our imaginations, beliefs, and emotions play a vital role in our lives.
Neville Goddard’s teachings will help to lead you back to you and awaken the god in you that has remained dormant due to the misguided teachings we have received.
By listening to Neville Goddard, you learn to unlearn what was once your truth, and then you open your mind to the possibility of something more, something better. That will be your new reality. One where the first step to being made whole is to be unraveled.
The Lectures of Neville Goddard.
Neville Goddard eventually settled in Los Angeles, making it his permanent residence, after he had traveled across the United States, creating a new movement that was aware of itself and the powers it possessed. Neville soon amassed a large audience interested in his beliefs in the 1950s. After he had gathered a following, he began his teaching on radio stations and began a constant lecture that had a good audience at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. Some years later, Neville limited his audience, choosing to take along only those who were located in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
He had a single theme for his early teachings, writings, and lectures. A theme he tagged as, ‘The Law’. The Law was a doctrine unto itself and Neville made certain everyone understood that, basing many of his early messages and teachings on it. The Law shows the power a man can possess in a way that he is able to call his physical reality into order through his mental reality or his thoughts and imaginations. There were similarities between what he meant by The Law, and the New Thought Movement and many tended to link them together.
Neville often told the audience of his own personal experiences when he taught them the concept of The Law and these examples have been quoted over time by all who talked about him, whether they were followers or not. One of the examples he often gave was the story of how he had escaped being a soldier with an honorable discharge and United States citizenship, something he had wanted to have.
Neville also believed in using your imaginal power in a way that affects those around you and the world in general. He gave an example of a little girl with lumps on her neck, that his wife told him about and how he had focused on his wife’s voice and applied the power of his imagination as he lay in bed at night. A few days later, the lumps on her neck were tested, and the doctors unanimously agreed that they were not cancerous at all.
“Learn how to use your imaginal power, lovingly, on behalf of others, for Man is moving into a world where everything is subject to his imaginal power”.
The Law and the Promise
In 1959, Neville introduced his audience to the concept of ‘The Promise’. He explained to them that to understand the concept of ‘The Promise’, was to awaken as God, fully understanding the power we possess and shedding the human restrictions and limitations. The process of unraveling ‘The promise’ takes a time of three and a half years. Neville posited the scriptural justification for this time as he made a reference to it in the Book of Daniel as he stated that, “it comes to 1260 in your experience of it.”
Progressively from the latter part of the 1960s to the early 1970s, Neville posited the primacy of ‘the Promise’ to ‘the Law’. He talked about the futility of using imaginal power to alter the physical realities and strongly argued the essentiality of ‘the Promise’ which integrally features the individuals’ desire to fulfill the Scripture. ‘The Promise is the fulfillment of Man’s destiny.
He argued that although ‘the Law’ and ‘the Promise’ were important, ‘the Promise’ took precedence over ‘the Law’. The promise, he described as an unconditional blessing of God that is not achieved by human effort but by the grace of God, while ‘the Law’ is conditional and a failure to adhere by it only takes the human to an afterlife via death continuously till Christ (the Promise) is formed in the human being to make him a ‘son of God’.
Neville did not believe in the existence of hell and eternal condemnation. He believed that man continues to return after death until he fulfills his purpose on Earth.
Towards the end of his life, Neville believed with conviction that ‘The Promise’ had been fully formed in him and as such, he had fulfilled his own destiny.
On October 1, 1972, Neville Goddard died of an aneurysm at the age of 67. A death which he had prophesied so many times and welcomed, leaving his teachings to create a better life for whoever wishes to apply them.
The Biography of Neville Goddard
His Early Life
Born to Nathaniel Goddard and Wilhelmina Nee Hankinson on the 19th of February 1905, Neville Goddard began his lifetime as the fourth child in a family of nine boys and a girl. St. Michael, Barbados in the British West Indies was the location that graced his birth.
In pursuit of a quality education, he came to the United States at the age of 18 to study drama boarding the S.S. Vasari. It was around this time that he met his first wife with whom he fathered a son named Joseph Neville Goddard. It was during a dancing tour in England that he had an encounter with a Scottish man who introduced him to study materials in the field of metaphysics. Grasping such an intellectual content on the power of the mind, his attention was integrally taken from entertainment and was diverted to discourses of mysticism and spirituality.
The futility of his first marriage made him a loner until he met his second wife who happened to be a designer, in the 1930s. The union was blessed with a daughter in the person of Victoria or “Vicky”. However, at the age of 38, he was conscripted into the US army. This was contrary to his will because apart from the age barrier and lack of youthful strength, he was filled with a sense of responsibility towards his wife and daughter. Having become familiar with the power of imagination, Neville testified to have delivered himself from that military constraint via his mental vision. Eventually, he had dual citizenship with US citizenship from his military service, being added to his British citizenship.
Encountering Abdullah and his Teachings
Abdullah was a lecturer of Esoteric Christianity and a teacher to both Goddard and Joseph Murphy, whom Goddard derived deep insights on the esoteric interpretation of the Holy Bible. Having been loaded with testimonies of Abdullah wonderful teachings from a friend, Neville decided to assess the greatness of such teachings for himself. At Neville’s first encounter with Abdullah, he was deeply impressed with his personality which expresses a man of great mental capacity and foreknowledge. Describing the occasion, Neville stated: “I recall the first night I met Abdullah. I had purposely delayed going to one of his meetings because a man whose judgment I did not trust had insisted on my attendance. At the end of the meeting Abdullah approached me and said, ‘Neville, you are six months late.’ Startled about the foreknowledge of Abdullah, Neville learned from him that their encounter had been revealed to him before time. He also learned that the purpose of Abdullah’s prolonged delay in that area was because he had a strict duty not to depart until he has fully imparted virtues and teachings to Neville. This encounter drew Neville into profound teachings of Hebrew, the Kabbalah, and the hidden symbolic meaning of the Scripture under the tutelage of Abdullah.
The Lectures of Neville Goddard
After making an itinerant wave throughout many states in the United States, Neville eventually made a permanent residence in Los Angeles. In the 1950’s, he had already made a solid ground and become familiar with his audience of interests. It was at this stage of his life that he began his mass communication and teaching on radio stations, and also had a constant lecture time for a good number of audience at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. In the early 1960’s and 1970’s, he set a limitation on his audience taking along only people who are located in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.
The sole theme of his early discourse, teachings, and the lecture was what he termed as ‘The Law’. The Law expresses the power of individual men to order their own physical and outward realities through the mental and inward creative capacities. This is the branch of his expression that many have attributed to sharing striking similarities with the New Thought Movement. In giving a practical example to the concept of the Law, Neville highlighted his own personal experiences. For example, his triumphant visit from New York to Barbados during the Great Depression without any money. He also expatiated on the use of the Law using the experiences of other people aside from him. The theme of his teachings his captured in his own expression that states: “Learn how to use your imaginal power, lovingly, on behalf of others, for Man is moving into a world where everything is subject to his imaginal power”.
The Law and the Promise
In 1959, Neville introduced his audience to the concept of ‘The Promise’. As Neville is understood, the experience of ‘the Promise’ precedes the knowledge of it. The process of unraveling ‘The promise’ takes a time of three and the half years. Neville posited the scriptural justification for this time as he made a reference to it in the Book of Daniel as he stated that, ‘it comes to 1260 in your experience of it’.
Progressively from the latter part of the 1960s to the early 1970s, Neville posited the primacy of ‘the Promise’ to ‘the Law’. He talked on the futility of using imaginal power to alter the physical realities and strongly argued the essentiality of ‘ the Promise’ which integrally features the individuals’ desire to fulfill the Scripture.
Arguing on the supremacy of ‘the Promise’ over ‘the Law’, Neville described the Promise as an unconditional blessing of God that is not achieved by human effort but by the grace of God. On the other hand, ‘the Law’ is conditional and a failure to adhere by it only takes the human to an afterlife via death continuously till Christ(The Promise) is finally formed in the human being to make him a ‘son of God’. ‘The Promise is the fulfillment of Man’s destiny.
Neville disproved the existence of hell and eternal condemnation as he argued that God is existentially unified to man, therefore a condemnation of man is impossible as it will imply a condemnation of God which is absolutely impossible.
In the epilogue of his lifetime, Neville expressed his conviction that ‘The Promise’ has been fully formed in him and as such, he has fulfilled his own destiny. He also expressed the unification of all man even after the death of a fulfilled Promise.
On October 1, 1972, Neville Goddard went to the great beyond at the age of 67. However, his legacies and teachings are still permanent in our world.
