“Well, if that is true and someone tells me that my own wonderful human imagination is God, and that what is imagined is as real as what my senses now dictate; that I can give to that unseen state a reality that will project itself upon the screen of space and become as real as anything now on the screen of space, and share that reality with others, can I do it? Well, I did it in this case. I did morning, noon and night; and I am not different from any person born of woman. I have found the True God!” – Neville Goddard
Twenty five years ago TODAY (written October 27, 2014), I discovered the real power of the imagination. Of course, I knew how it worked before, because I used it to reinvent my life when I was a teenager. Before imagination – I was a sickly kid, who got picked on a lot, who got picked last for every single activity in gym class. After discovering how to use the imagination, I was the picture of extreme health and fitness, when I got my first black belt at the age of 18.
But 25 years ago today, when I was just 23 years old, I was a rookie prison guard taken hostage in the Camp Hill Prison Riots. Beat to death, revived, left dazed and confused. Not quite sure what to do next. And that’s when the flashbacks started.
Flashbacks are probably the ultimate IMAGINATION out of control situation. Life was crazy back then for a while. For example, after the swelling shrunk down and the physical scars healed, I looked normal. I looked TOTALLY normal walking at the mall one day, shoe shopping, enjoying the lovely afternoon. Then, the next thing I know, I’m hiding in a corner of a pharmacy, peeking out between boxes of tampons, back in the riots, waiting to be beat again – one more time.
Imagination out of control is pure living hell. (And that kind of experience is one big time motivator….)
One day, I imagined that there had to be a way out of that mess. A way out that didn’t include more “counseling”. A way out that didn’t include mind numbing and mood altering drugs. Drugs that often have dangerous side effects. I imagined that there had to be a way out, and that’s when this adventure began.
I dove head first, into three things, like my life depended on it. One of them was Neurolinguistic Programming. That’s a skillset that has served me well, because I learned it to take apart the mind – to study how it works – so you can get it to work much more effectively. We used NLP to model the minds of many great people since then, including Neville Goddard’s.
Another area I dove deep into was Native American Wisdom teachings. Each wisdom teaching had a skillset associated with it, that took learning it from being just a “head” lesson, to one that changes your life on multiple lessons. Many of the Wisdom Teachings I learned that are associated with Healing and Transformation – are associated with making fire by friction – unleashing stored sunlight – that’s what many elders call what is inside of the “wood” you burn in a fire. Healing is all about unleashing that pure “stored sunlight” of you into the world. Motivation is what you do with that fire, once it is unleashed.
And finally I found Neville Goddard, again. Neville hunted me down three times in this lifetime. This time, I stopped and listened deeply. I discovered not only how to manifest pretty darn much what ever I wanted in life by Following-The-Formula, but also discovered complete inner peace by accepting what I truly am. In The Promise teachings, Neville teaches we are one with God, and that everyone awakens to that in perfect divine timing.
Meanwhile, to make life more interesting and fun, Follow The Formula and manifest what you want in life.
This lifetime is a precious opportunity. It’s the best gift you could ever give to yourself. Enjoy it wildly. Live it fully. And dive in deeply.
Many blessings and big love,
Mr Twenty Twenty and Victoria
