Jesus: Physical man or the Ideal MAN?

 


Quote from:

Neville Goddard 03-17-1969



BEAR YE ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS



The Bible is the most practical book in the world. In it we are told that one named Simon carried the cross behind Jesus. The word “Simon” means “to hear with understanding and consent to what is heard.” And Jesus is your own wonderful human imagination. 

The gospel tells what happens in the soul of Jesus. The events recorded there are seen and heard by none save but Him. Through these experiences He gains the certainty that He is not only the Son of God, but also God Himself. But when he tells his story few will accept it, as his experience of scripture differs greatly from its interpretation by the priests and rabbis. Simon, however, understands what he hears and, consenting to it, he carries the cross. 

We are told to “Bear ye one another’s burden and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Now, the law of Christ is described in the Sermon on the Mount. It is a psychological law, as Christ tells you in the 5th chapter of

The History of the Soul of MAN...

A 1959 Lecture by Neville, interpreted by Tim Che for today's reader

Our Discussion today is concerned only with the great secret of life. Here we are convinced that the Supreme Power that created and sustains the universe is Divine Imagining, and it does not differ from human imagination except in degree of intensity of the one who is Imagining. So,  your wonderful Imagination is God, in Man. This is what we are referring to when we say "God".

We tell you that Imagination (God in you) creates Reality, but keep in mind that at this human level on earth, it takes time, persistence and practice. If our Imaginations are awakened and we are aware of it, we must learn how to use it. We use it by creating Images. If we will persist in the image, live in it, sleep in it and breathe in it, it will crystallize into tangible form, it will become real in this world.

Night after night we explore different facets of this truly great secret, the Secret of Imagining. Tonight, we will explore the greatest book about Imagination in the world, The Bible, and we will look at it from the perspective of the mystic. So, as we turn to it, keep in mind that the Bible is addressed to the Imagination in you and not to the man of who relies on the 5 senses or the man of logic & reason who is lost in the "flood" of "facts" and cannot understand the Imagination that preceded ALL facts.  They are the ones that are referred to in the Bible as "lost" or "dead" or "sound asleep."

Interestingly, it says in the Old Testament that "Adam" fell into a profound sleep. And nowhere in the

The Coin of Heaven...

There are 2 aspects of the conscious mind.
  • The part that is thinking, sensing, and interpreting which is dependent on a state of consciousness. 
  • And the Imagination which is has the power to change the state of consciousness. 
When thinking is engaged, the Imagination is idle. You are free to choose what aspect of the mind you engage, but only if you are aware of the difference. You can Invest your mind on lovely things, or spend your thought unwisely on negative things. 

Self-talk is self prophecy 

because the mind, through the Imagination, is a creative device that is always ON

The following transcribed lecture from 1953, we have edited for a more contemporary translation. Neville makes this VERY clear and uses the example of a black man in the '50s who overcame the self-imposed limitation of his race, with astonishing results!


SOUND INVESTMENTS
Neville Goddard 1953

I want to share with you today what I consider one of the truly great revelations of all time.

On Sunday morning, April 12th, my wife woke from what was really a deep, profound sleep and as she was waking a voice distinctly spoke to her and speaking with great authority it said to her:

"You must stop spending your thoughts, your time and your money; everything in life must be an investment." 

So she quickly wrote it down and went straight to the dictionary to look up the two important words in the sentence, 'spending' and 'investing'. The dictionary defines 'spending' as "to waste, to squander, to layout without return." To 'invest' is to "layout for a purpose, for which a profit is expected" .

Then I began to analyze the sentence - "You must stop spending your thoughts, your time and your money, for everything in life must be an investment". As I dwelt upon it, I saw where everything is NOW;

That through the portals of the present all time must pass, 

and this psychological NOW, the state of mind in which I find myself now, does not recede into the past. It advances into my future.

So, what I do NOW is the all important thing

and thought is the coin of heaven;

 it is the money of heaven. And so the thought I entertain now, the thought to which I give my consent to, is either my investment, or

 CHRISTMAS - MAN'S BIRTH AS GOD

Neville, 1968


"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word became

flesh and dwells in us." (John 1) Our physical birth is God's incarnation, for incarnation signifies the
assumption by a divine being of human or animal form. When you were born your little human form was assumed by God. Christmas marks the departure from God's incarnation and your birth as God. 

There are two births: one when God assumes your human form and the other when you assume the divine form as God! The first birth is from below, while the second birth - called Christmas - is from above. Every child born of woman is God incarnate, or the child could not be aware that he is. His consciousness is God's incarnation. The world, not knowing this, celebrates the wrong event; for Christmas is when man becomes conscious of being God. 

Here are a few paradoxes which disturb many people. All of these are actual quotes or interpretations of a quote:

"I shall no longer speak to you in figures, but tell you plainly of the Father."

"I came out from the Father and came into the world. Again I am leaving the world and going to the Father."

"I and my Father are one."

"I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I."

"When you see me, you have seen the Father."

"He who you call God, he is my Father, but I know my Father and you know not your God."

"Show us the Father. If you knew me you would not ask, for no one can know me in the true sense and not know God, for He and I are inseparable." 

Who is the father who is one with his son, yet greater than he? Can he be the son of God, yet God the Father? And how can I ever know that I and my Father are one? Let us try to solve these strange contradictions.

The Mind and Motion Universe

Probably the greatest mind of the 20th century, Walter Russell is one of those rare individuals who mastered all the arts; music, painting, sculpture, architecture, swimming, horsmanship and finally... what we call "science" and he refers to his 'cosmogony of the universe'.
All of this without any formal education!

A book called, "The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe" gives a condensed account of his life and is worthy of your attention.

I was recently toying with the idea of getting Water Russell's book, The Secret of Light, and thought I would ask for it for Christmas. Well, I never got around to asking any "People" for it, but the Universe heard me! As I stumbled upon the book, now in the public domain, and downloaded it from the online library https://archive.org/details/WalterRussellTheSecretOfLight

The following is an excerpt from Walter Russell's book, Atomic Suicide which we have just recently dug into. The beginning of the book is fantastic and then he gets into lots of evidence details about why nuclear energy will end humankind, possibly forever... but you can skip ahead to chapter 4. Here in chapter 4, he gets into some juicy explanations of The Zero Universe of Cause, which is stillness... and the Universe of Effect, which is motion. You can download the book here http://abundanthope.net/artman2/uploads/1/Atomic_Suicide.pdf  This is some of the most important understandings of the nature of everything that we have come across. You can also support his work by purchasing the books from the foundation charged with keeping the Russell's work alive,  www.philosophy.org or making a donation

InJoy!

CHAPTER IV
The True Nature of This Mind and Motion Universe


In the heart of every man is the desire for love--for happiness, peace and prosperity. In the hearts of nations of men is the One-World desire for international unity. Universal Brotherhood is the ultimate world-goal. How far are we from that goal? The distance is far ahead for the human race. Its distance is

Finally... The Earth is Neither Spherical nor Flat

by Tim Che

...and yet it is both Spherical AND Flat. For you see...

Consciousness is rising.

As you rise with it, the world reflects the change.

At one level of consciousness, the world is FLAT.

At another level of consciousness, the world is a SPHERE spinning through the vacuum of empty space.

At the next level of consciousness, the world is ????????? 

If I knew the answer to this and told you, it would have very little meaning and you would not be able
to understand it if you were not in the consciousness of the answer. If you were in the consciousness of the answer, it would be obvious what the world is and you would not have the question in the first place.

The current state of consciousness that modern man finds himself in, sees the world as external to, and separate from, himself. It sees the world and everything in it as having existence on its own, independent of Man. Such a consciousness observes the world with a logical, rational mind... "I'll believe it when I see it", and sees only what appears to be causes external to himself. In other words, I see the world outside from the viewpoint of what I define as "myself", and conclude that something outside of that same self "caused" it to exist. Such a state of consciousness would develop its reasoning capacities and see ever-increasing complexity in its ideas and concepts about the world. Mathematics and physics has pushed its ideas to the limits, yet still cannot answer the simple question of "First Cause" "read: DNA, A Reflection of Human Concsiousness)

The current rise of the FLAT EARTH phenomena is a response from the control systems of authority to the awakening and rising of  consciousness. Which begins to realize that  "All is not as we have been taught".  Consciousness is rising and people are questioning these foundational ideas of reality, religion, science and human nature.

Causing a Disturbance in THE FORCE

The problem is that as you rise in consciousness, you may realize that the "spinning ball" model of Earth has a lot of fundamental flaws... and instead of looking deeper into the question of our reality, you are led to an alternative idea of lower consciousness... that the Earth is FLAT. Any amount of time spent on that idea reveals even more flaws. The questioner is left to his/her own devices.

You must find out for yourself. No one else can do it for you.

We have had a lot of people tell us that it is not important what shape the Earth is and that such inquiry does not affect their lives. Quite the opposite is true. The Earth and YOU are ONE.

What the Earth is YOU are. 
What YOU are, the Earth IS.

Nothing could be more important. The debate between FLAT or SPHERE is centered around what the Earth is NOT. The Mental attention and Inquiry must be directed to what the earth actually IS. It is not a concept. It is not an Illusion.

It is a popular notion that reality is just an illusion and that nothing is real. We have heard many people

What Is-Real?...

by Tim Che'

Another take on the theme, "The Maker Being Lost in the Made"

The focus of this post is the quote in the accompanying picture. To be lost in the "Made" is to be lost in what Is-Real, or IsRael. It is an unconscious form of narcissism and a very difficult trap to get out of.

For you see, we have, over time, created the ultimate gate-keeper of the trap... the intellectual faculties of the mind. Which regards truth only in terms of what appears to be real. Not realizing that what it sees in the external world is a result of a cause.

And that cause is the Imagination.

Which created something out of nothing. Something the science-priests of the world have yet to do and they will be unlikely to discover it using the external eyes of logic and reasoning.

The crisis in today's world is a Spiritual one, not a religious one. The battle is raging in you, and is being externalized in the "real" world. (read, The Battle of Armageddon")

So, to see this world as REAL, is to be trapped forever in it with no way out. But what created the world as it is, can create it as you would like it to be. It is the only creative power in the universe and it is the power that sustains it... The Imagination.

So, to see things as "Real" is to deny that all things are possible to God, and God is your Imagination.
And god and you are ONE.

The Evolution of YOU...

 At time 26:30, Bill outlines the evolution of you;

  1. Starting with the Adam (atom)
  2. Then the removal of the rib (the splitting of the atom)
  3. Then Eve is introduced (the introduction of thought)
  4. Then came the Serpent (the introduction of contradictory thought)
  5. Conflict is then developed through Cain and Able
  6. We left the Garden of Eden  moving into the Left-brain/ego/intellect
  7. Then we activate Abram, the power with us to overcome the left
  8. We have to get rid of Lot, the part of us that wants to live in Sodom
  9. We overcome Lot, but the Ego makes a last ditch effort to make a deal; Offers you all the riches of Sodom to give yourself over to it.
  10. You reject the offer and are filled with Spirit and are know as AbraHAm.
  11. You are now seated at the right hand of God (right side of the brain) where Melchizadeck appears to bring the bread and wine (spiritual truth and understanding)
 Tithing is how you do this. Tithing is "Putting away the 10%". The 10% is the left-brain. Meditation is the invitation to this Tithing.

Mental Diets

 

Mental Diets...

 Dare You to Read This Every Night Before You Go to Bed and See What Happens!


Neville Goddard  1955


MENTAL DIETS

Talking to oneself is a habit everyone indulges in. We could no more stop talking to ourselves than we could stop eating and drinking. All that we can do is control the nature and the direction of our inner conversations. Most of us are totally unaware of the fact that our inner conversations are the causes of the circumstance of our life.

We are told that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." But do we know that man's thinking
follows the tracks laid down in his own inner conversations? To turn the tracks to which he is tied in the direction in which he wants to go, he must put off his former conversation, which is called in the Bible the Old Man, and be renewed in the spirit of his mind. Speech is the image of mind; therefore, to change his mind, he must first change his speech. By 'speech' is meant those mental conversations we carry on with ourselves.

The world is a magic circle of infinite possible mental transformations. For there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations. 

When man discovers the creative power of inner talking, he will realize his function and his mission in life. Then he can act to a purpose. Without such knowledge, he acts unconsciously. Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on in us without our being aware of them. But as civilized beings, we must become aware of them and act with a purpose.

A man's mental conversations attracts his life. As long as there is no change in his inner talking, the personal history of the man remains the same. To attempt to change the world before we change our inner talking is to struggle against the very nature of things. Man can go round and round in the same circle of disappointments and misfortunes, not seeing them as caused by his own negative inner talking, but as caused by others... Read More:


This may seem far-fetched, but it is a matter which lends itself to research and experiment. The formula the chemist illustrates is not more certainly provable than the formula of this science by which words are clothed in objective reality.

One day a girl told me of her difficulties in working with her employer. She was convinced that he unjustly criticized and rejected her very best efforts. Upon hearing her story, I explained that if she thought him unfair, it was a sure sign that she herself was in need of a new conversation piece. There was no doubt but that she was mentally arguing with her employer, for others only echo that which we whisper to them in secret.

She confessed that she argued mentally with him all day long. When she realized what she had been doing, she agreed to change her inner conversations with her employer. She imagined that he had congratulated her on her fine work, and that she in turn had thanked him for his praise and kindness. To her great delight, she soon discovered that her own attitude was the cause of all that befell her.

What...Is...Love?

Our Wish for you:

"That you may Become Love"

 To know love you must inquire.
Answers are implied in questions, so ask yourself, "What is Love?"

Asking yourself this one question, over and over and over again, is the most trans-formative activity that an individual can engage in. Years ago, I became obsessed with this question, in a way that is impossible to put into words.

I WANTED TO KNOW!

...Was it just a feeling? What was that feeling? Where was I feeling the sensations? What were those sensations? Is it a feeling of possession? of Security? of relief?  Is love pleasure? Is love infatuation? Is it adoration? Is love just an emotion? What is it to "fall" into Love? How does Love work? Are there really different kinds of Love? I love my parents and I love my dog, I love my car, I love certain foods, I love my children and my friends, I love being in nature etc, etc... Is this love all the same? Is love greater for one than another? Are there different levels of Love? What is it to love a country, or maybe a song?

Food for Thought?

What are YOU feeding your mind?
 Let us talk about mental nutrition.
'You are what you eat' with the body.
'You become what you consume' with the mind. 
It's pretty obvious that this is true for the body. But isn't it interesting that have not applied this rule to the mind? The mind wants to be fed compulsively 'More'. 

More information, more drama, more excitement, more violence, more knowledge, more sex, the absolute latest breaking news… as if it would make a difference in the world if we heard about it 2 hours later. This blind and ravenous consumption of media has made our minds heavy, dull and obese... fattening up on the idea that what is going on 'out there' is more important than what is right in front of you 'right now'.

The highly processed and cleverly crafted messages we consume are clogging up the digestive system of the mind, making it nearly impossible to extract what little nutrition is hidden there.  

A high-fat diet of: traumatic television, nasty newsprint and pathological periodicals contributes to the 'heart' disease of the mind, keeping us internally in conflict and judgment, thus leading to an emotional cardiac arrest and a heartless world.

 Mental nutrition high with the cholesterol of conflict, conspiracy and creative consumerism, hardens up the arteries of freethinking. Mind-foods full of behavioral preservatives subversively sell us everything from chocolate-chip cookies, to national propaganda, to what a human being is supposed to look like and behave like, thus cementing un-asked-for belief systems to an unaware consumer. These are just a few of the external hazards of this kind of mental nutrition.

Truth is a Pathless Land...


The following speech is, in our opinion, one of the greatest delivery of words to man, from man,

that
 exists in history. Studying the penetrating teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, one comes to the conclusion that problems created by thought cannot be solved by thought. Thought.... thinking... and the abstractions that result can be a perilous field, especially for most of us who do not understand the workings of the mind, the nature of time and the meaning of love. 

Most of us are completely identified with our thinking, our beliefs, values etc... We think we are our thoughts. But who is doing all this thinking? Where does a thought come from? Who is the observer? What is the observed? Can we penetrate the superficial meaning of words to find reality? And if we can, What do we find?






The thinking part of the mind does not like these questions much... because it has been happily in control of our lives for a long time and is not really interested in any truth that would reduce it's grip on controlling what we think is real. Such questioning threatens the very existence of the mind-created self and it will do desperate things to protect itself. This desperation is reflected in the conflict and chaos of today's world.


Truth Is A Pathless Land

The Map is not the Territory...

By Tim Che'

I don't know about you, but I have always been fascinated by maps. Maps are handy things to have when you want to get somewhere that you have not been before.  I love getting a sense of the spatial relationship of where I am to my surroundings. I have spent an inordinate amount of time looking at maps and things like Google Earth. And, even as detailed as Google Earth can be, I am ALWAYS astonished to discover that the actual place is not at all like the map, or Google Earth with the street view! It is always MUCH more in depth, and full of life, and overwhelming to the senses... a profound level of awareness and presence in an eternal moment that no map could ever come close to.

There are many kinds of maps... not just about locations and roads or paths. Religions are a map to
God, supposedly. Science is the modern map of  the material world. Pharmaceuticals and surgeries are a popular map to health.

There are mind-maps, star maps, and even a map of human consciousness. And all maps are created through someone's remembered and recorded perceptions and/or analysis of hopefully accurate data. Hopefully, of course, for anyone who wishes to follow the map and get to a particular destination.

So, maps attempt to lay out the territory and build paths to destinations. Then we discover...


And what does that say about "destinations" as it relates to "truth"? Let us address that later as we continue to explore "maps".
