“Since listening to Neville and reading your books, I have started worrying that I am going to manifest bad things, since I worried so much before. Can you help me get out of this cycle?” – Tim F.
We all have made mistakes, we all have fallen before into the temptation of worry, and the fantasies of fear. The good news is that you are responsible for what you create with the amazing power that you are – from here forward. And the great news is, all shortcomings can be forgiven – except for one.
Today we share what Neville teaches about the power of Forgiveness. Forgiveness unleashes the power of grace, and grace allows you to begin again – to manifest – to create – to generate what you choose in the world.
“You forgive another (the same way your forgive yourself) by thinking of him as you would like him to be and persuading yourself of the reality of your imaginal act. You are forgiving him for what he appears to be by putting him into an entirely different state. Do that and you are substituting a noble concept for an ignoble one. That’s forgiveness! Forgiveness tests the individual’s ability to enter into and partake of the nature of the opposite.” – Neville Goddard
POWER POINT: When you totally place another into a much more noble state than the one in which he has fallen, you forgive him for what he APPEARS to be, not for what he is. The fallen state that you or another appears to be – is not the real you. It is just a state that has been fallen into.
Remember, you are NEVER the state you have fallen into, you are much greater than any state – because YOU can choose or create any state in your life starting right now. (For more details on this part of the lesson, read what we share with Neville in the book – FREEDOM – Neville Goddard Simplified #3.)
HOW TO DO IT: You also can completely forgive yourself for what you have unleashed in the world during moments of fear and doubt, by fully entering into the new more ideal state that you choose. Just remember to totally FORGET the old state, leave it behind, bury it so deep that you don’t even remember where to find it or what it was like. Neville says:
“Forgive her by so losing yourself in the idea of her new state that it is all you can remember, and not the former one. (If you) Keep thinking of her in the former state, you have pulled her back into it, for there are only states, externalized.” – Neville Goddard
Why does this work every time? Are there any limits to forgiveness?
“The only thing that cannot be forgiven is the sin against the Holy Ghost, which is man’s doubt in the power of God.” – Neville Goddard on Faith
Have faith in the power that you are. Have faith in your wonderful human imagination. Do this, and you can forgive and you can be forgiven of everything. With the amazing power of you imagination – which is one with god, you can change the world. But if you doubt your power – the power of the human imagination – it all stops dead. For you are the operant power.
Remember, Faith is loyalty to the unseen. Remain loyal to your vision. Come from the state of the wish fulfilled. Notice today, if you are reacting to the world as the IDEAL YOU you have chosen to be. And if your imagination strays, and your reactions come from a less than ideal state – then practice forgiveness – Neville Goddard style.
Have an amazing day!
