Do you do nothing or do you do something? How Neville Goddard Manifested #1

deskquoteHey mate,

Today’s article ought to clear up some confusion for you. Inspired by one of your letters. Let’s dive in.

Hi TT, I have a question. I understand your thoughts that we must be participatory actors in the things we imagine for ourselves. For instance, to be a writer read by thousands, one has to actually write. I think I’m clear that your saying that Neville isn’t magical thinking. Yet Neville’s lectures do give the opposite impression that you’re suggesting.

For instance, Neville’s story about the army. Prior to imaging his application was denied. His vision is to do nothing. Nine days later, he is out of the army. Or the story about the woman that wanted her brother released from prison. For eight days, she imagines and he comes home. Unless I misunderstanding some of your commentaries, this seems to be the opposite of how you’re understanding Neville.

Great question mate.  Let’s dive into…

How Neville Goddard manifested!

Neville’s army story is a great example of how Feel It Real works in the physical world.

“I was drafted into the army during World War II, but I wanted no part of it. When my request for a discharge was disapproved, I did not get angry and try to go over the colonel’s head. Instead, I lay down on my army cot, closed my eyes to the other fifty men in the room, and imagined I was two thousand miles away in my apartment above Washington Square in New York City.”

“Placing myself on my bed, I saw my wife sleeping in hers. Then I rose, and looking out the window, I saw the Holly Apartments across the street and Washington Square down below. Turning, I walked into the living room, dining room, and the kitchen. I felt familiar objects and brought as many of my five senses alive in the drama as possible. At 4:00 o’clock in the morning I awoke hearing a voice say, “That which I have done, I have done. Do nothing.”

“Who spoke those words? I did, but I heard them as coming from without. Knowing what I had done and what I had said, I walked in faith for nine days, doing nothing on the outside. On the tenth day the colonel who had rejected my application called me into his office and gave me an honorable discharge. “

…and many other stories of Neville, we can notice there were two ways he participated in the outcome. One was in the physical world. The other, in the wonderful world of imagination.

  • In this particular example, Neville filled out the paperwork, made a physical request to get out of the Army. And that request was rejected. Notice he stopped at that point, and chose to enter in the world of the imagination.

In imagination he participated in “his life” outside of the Army.

Feeling familiar objects, and involving the five senses to the point where his imaginal activity felt like the same activity would – in the physical world. It was then, that “the voice” told him to do nothing.

learn_how_to_feel_it_realTAKE AWAY: If Neville insisted that he do NOTHING AT ALL, to get out of the Army, he wouldn’t have filed the paperwork.

The original paperwork that got rejected. And he wouldn’t have gone to the office of his commanding officer – AFTER he imagined his release either.

But in the story, it’s obvious that the officer that read that paperwork…

….and who had rejected it, but he couldn’t get “Neville” off his mind. Because on the tenth day, the colonel called him into his office, interviewed him, and then told him to fill out a new set of papers – and then he was discharged.


Neville didn’t PUSH to make it happen.  He simply played his natural part – answering his commanding officer’s questions – and resubmitting the paperwork – AFTER he moved in consciousness – to being back home – discharged from the Army.

There are numerous other stories…

…where Neville’s BODY participated in various ways in his wish being fulfilled, like when he manifested tickets to a sold out opera for his brothers.  Tickets that were IMPOSSIBLE to buy – he got – in just minutes.  

The major key was…

  • Neville knew the physical act is not the cause.
  • He didn’t try to PHYSICALLY FORCE it to happen.
  • He stopped, he used The Tools CORRECTLY…

….and he imagined what implied his wish was fulfilled.  His physical act, and the physical act of the officer, were BOTH caused by his IMAGINAL act.

REMEMBER, the real NEVILLE and the real YOU are both pure consciousness – pure imagination – what drives the body and what drives all of the physical world.  The body is part of the universe that RESPONDS to you – pure imagination – to fulfil your wish.

Thank you John for your question mate.  We are sure it made a difference in many peoples lives, and we hope it does in yours.

Many blessings,

Mr Twenty Twenty and Victoria

    Mr TT have or nevilleyou ever been filled with intense fear while changing
    Your thought with feel it real. i been doing
    My exercises an for passed week an a half
    I been faced with deep fear a doubt. Very over welming. Thanks zach .

  3. Frankie says:

    I have a little difficulty in understanding the army story. Neville imagined himself at home in all his familiar surroundings. Is this what manifested? He could’ve served in the army and eventually would have returned home to his familiar surroundings so one could say his imagining would’ve been manifested. What would be more consistent with what I’ve been learning here is if his imagining included him telling his wife at home how he was called in and given a discharge or some telling of him getting out of the army and returning home. Or just imagining getting the discharge and feeling his joy and gratitude at being discharged. I guess I am not getting how his imagining of his home and him being there directly related to a manifestation of being discharged. I hope this makes sense.

  4. Mr Twenty Twenty says:

    Good question Frankie,

    Feeling it Real is about a shift in NOW, not in the future.

    So Neville felt as if he were home, instead of in the Army, and let the timing and the way it happened work out NATURALLY.

    That’s why we never think in terms of future date, “by friday” etc, and always feel in terms of now.

    Hope that makes sense mate,

    TT and V

    What’s underneath the fear mate? If you let it pass through, what do you notice /feel?


  6. Patricia says:

    Wonderful lesson TT, but I also have some confusion . In his book At Your Command, Neville clearly states to pick a date in the future and then to “collapse ” time, so that it becomes ” present time”. He says you can feel what that day is like. Also, I practice my Nevilizing every day, but lately I think I’m hearing to do it once and rest. To imagine something daily, is in fact to admit you are still wanting it…

    CONFUSED!!!! HELP!!!

    Thank you so much for all your selfless help.

  7. Mr Twenty Twenty says:

    Hi Patricia,

    I wouldn’t worry about picking a date. He mentions that RARELY. We focus on what he focused on most, and find it most effective.


    TT and V

    PS: We imagine things daily all the time, like having dinner in a few hours. That doesn’t “block” dinner from happening, it seems to actually indicate one is “moving towards dinner”. Try that on.

  8. Mr Twenty Twenty says:

    Hi Patricia,

    Do it till it feels real. Later, if you need to do another session to continue to walk in that state, do it.

    Neville did multiple sessions, especially early on.

    Enjoy the adventure.

    TT and V

    Another Excellent article. Thank you, TT and V!

    Hi Guys,
    Wanted to let you know I have the “Feel it Real” package and have been thru it twice in the five days I’ve had it. It is every bit as good as I had hoped. This should be taught in the schools and one day it might, once the “grownups” are grown up.Heh heh.Thank you for such marvelous education.

    My very best,

    PS: Get not in front of a moving rhinoceros.You are needed. Nothing against the rhinoceros.

  11. Mr Twenty Twenty says:

    Thanks Dick!

    And your wisdom in the PS, priceless mate!

    Blessings to you!

  12. As I keep working on this latest story I am submitting to my editor, in my feel it reals I am talking to a group of friends, in the ‘not specific future”. They are congratulating me, after having had ALL THREE STORIES I’ve submitted these past six months, accepted – and bought! Yes, of course, I am continuing (as I feel it real in imagination) to actually write and make notes. But, adding the feel it real that in my human imagination I am ‘coming from the wish fulfilled” stories are accepted by the editor. Contracted for. Bought. And I have been paid. NOW (from the state of the wish fulfilled), I am telling people HOW I actually did that!! For me, it completes the whole picture.

  13. It is now April 2018, as I write these words. That next story BTW was bought, printed, and the books are on sale. My payment-check for the story will be arriving shortly. I received my author’s copies, sliced the box open, lifting the copies out, with delight…opening up to the pages where my work appears. I am filled with a sense of quiet pride. Remembering this sensation – the wish IS FULFILLED..I also ‘save in the bank”, that joyous, grateful feeling…(feel it reals)to call them up, on command, whenever needed for manifesting. Done, and dusted!!!!
