“Help me! I am stuck. I am in almost homeless, in a bad relationship that is getting worse, and I don’t have any way out? I am at wit’s end. Can you help me?”
What if it were true, what if you could change your circumstances – what if you could change your life – by changing how you saw it in your mind? How would you do that? Neville gives us a way, and it begins with remembering that no matter what we think – the state we have been stuck in is ONLY a role that we have adopted. Let’s examine the words of Neville today, and find a clue:
“You can play any part – be it a rich man or a poor man, a beggar or a thief, the known or unknown – once you know they are only parts, only states of consciousness. But if you don’t know this, and are not willing to give up your present state, you will remain there, looking at your desire and not from it. You can become what you would like to be in the twinkle of an eye by the simple act of assumption.” – Neville Goddard – I Am The Cause
There are three things we need to remember from that quote of Neville’s today – to get things moving.
- Realize, that YOU can play ANY PART – Once you KNOW that they are ONLY parts.
- Then, all you have to do is give up your present state. (Stop holding onto the BENEFITS of your limited state.
- And begin to see FROM the state you intend to live from. Nevile Calls this the Act Of Assumption.
Let’s explore how to do each of those steps, real quick – so you can experiment with this WILDLY this weekend.
First, realize that you have been playing a part – a part that you have become so familiar with – that you have probably made the mistake of thinking that it is you. Remember, nothing can be farther from the truth. You can play any part. Single or married. Poor or rich. Sad or happy. The first step is to realize what part you INTEND to play. We call this your Primary Position.
Then, you get to give up the benefits of the old state – to give up your old state. We had a woman write to us, and tell us that the hardest part she had when it came to assuming HEALTH in her life, was that she had to stop TALKING ABOUT her sickly ways – both inside her mind and in her conversations with friends and family. A good friend of mine started succeeding wildly in business again – after he stopped talking with his friends about the recession. And me, when I was a child, I stopped getting picked on, when I stopped whining to my parents about it – and focused on my ideal – getting fit and becoming a black belt. (I actually manifested my first instructor, he started teaching at the local YMCA – AFTER I decided I was going to take martial arts classes.
Finally, you have to remember to always come FROM the state of your IDEAL YOU – the man or woman you choose to be. “I am healthy and I eat healthy”, became our one readers mantra. “People are still spending money – and they are spending more of it with me”, became part of my friends daily conversation. And I started seeing the world, as a black belt trainer does – someone with confidence and skills – who takes the time – to help people help themselves”. And that vision continues to drive me to this day – many black belts later.
So remember to feel your ideal as real, abandon the old states that no longer serve you, and live daily FROM the state of the wishes fulfilled. If you want to know how to tell if you are living FROM the state, read this article – Am I coming FROM the state of the wish fulfilled?
Have an amazing day,
