Today’s Neville Goddard quote is answering one of your questions. “Mr Twenty Twenty, Should we put a date on what we want, or not? Does putting a date on it block it? This is how I get to my goals that I am working on and I am confused. Everybody has an opinion, what does Neville say?” – Jan
With that in mind, here is today’s Neville Goddard quote from Imaginal Acts Become Facts:
“See him as he would like to be seen by the world. and you see him as you would like to see him. and then, carry on a mental conversation with him from the premise that he is now already the one he wants to be and to the degree that you are self-persuaded that he is that. he becomes that. You don’t have to raise one finger to make this up, you plant the seed. What do you do after you plant the seed? You leave it. You don’t get up every morning to see if it has a root, you leave it. A seed must fall into the ground and die before it is made alive. And if it dies, it bears much fruit and so you put it into the seed into the ground of your own wonderful human imagination. The very mind the vision has it’s own appointed hour. it ripens. It will flower. If it be long, wait for it is sure and it will not be late. Not for one seed. One seed might take 24 hours. Another might take like a hens egg, 21 days. A little lambs takes 5 months, a horse takes a year, human beings 9 months. So each seed has its own appointed hour. So don’t be concerned.” – Neville Goddard – Imaginal Acts Become Facts
Powerpoints from the quote:
- See him like he would like to be seen, as you would like to see him. (Notice there is no date implied. It is assumed to be NOW.)
- Carry on a mental conversation that implies that he is that way – to the point that you accept it as true.
- This is referred to as planting the seed. Leave it alone
- It will ripen, it will flower in it’s own appointed hour. Don’t be concerned.
We notice time and time again, Neville simply assumes, “that it is done”. When we put a time limit on WHEN it GETS done, we notice that that tends to feel forceful. So when it is a VISION we are dealing with – we simply assume, “it is done” and function FROM that premise. I see the world through the bestselling author’s state of mind. It is done.
My daily goals – which have a time frame – are how I personally participate in that growing in my life. I don’t have a goal of being a bestselling author, but I do have goals of writing so many pages a day – articles – emails etc. They don’t make the best selling author happen, they are just part of the lifestyle.
I hope that helps.
Mr Twenty Twenty and Victoria.
PS: Victoria and I are living a vision for our garden. You see many photographs of it here on FREENEVILLE.COM. One thing we have noticed is that we need helpers, to help us do the heavy work. So we have seen them “as here”. Recently we have manifested two helpers. Young men, who simply out of the blue love us, and love where we live, and who are willing to help us. And we are blessed to have their help in the garden. They help us with our goals every week, and while we have been blessed by them becoming part of our vision.
