Today we are going to share how to stop making one of the biggest mistakes people make, using just the first 10 minutes of one of our favorite Neville Goddard Lectures – The Pearl Of Great Price.
Neville says that The Kingdom Of Heaven is a STATE – in which we all can rise into – where EVERYTHING becomes completely subject to our wonderful imagination.
But to rise to that level – we must be willing to give up the belief that ANYTHING outside of you – has control over you.
Neville says, “But you can’t hold on to one thing you now believe in as a power that controls your life and still hope to buy the pearl of great price.”
Want your imaginal acts to have all the power that Neville’s did? Then you have to give up your beliefs in “external powers”, stuff like politics, astrology, even the belief that “the economy” will determine how well your business will do.
Join us, do that, and notice how wonderfully your world changes.

“Dear Mr. Twenty Twenty and Victoria,
Wow! I absolutely loved Neville’s Pearl of Great Price lecture!! So powerful! See it seventy times seven. “To see it so clearly that you see it and not a power in this world could move you from it.” I keep hearing that in my mind and I feel the strength and power of it. Thank you so much for concentrating on this lecture — it truly spoke to me.
Thank you both so very much. I had no idea I would have changed my thinking and my outlook this much in only six weeks!!
Many blessings!” – Linda
Tonight’s subject is the Pearl of Great Price. This is taken from the 13th chapter of the gospel of Matthew, 45th and 46th verses. It’s all about the kingdom of heaven. First of all, let us say that the kingdom of heaven is simply that state into which man rises, where everything is completely subject to his imaginative power. He is destined to be an heir, one with his Father who is God, where everything is put under his power.
Now, here is the quote from this 13th of Matthew. “The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” It is my hope that I can bring you to that pearl tonight. You may not value it to the point where you’re willing to sell all that you have to buy it, but I will tell you of this pearl. Very few are willing to sell all and buy the pearl.
But, let me now quote from another passage of the gospel. The 11th chapter of the Book of Luke, the 21st through the 23rd. “When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when one stronger than he assails him and overcomes him, he takes from him the armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoil.”
The very next line, as though it’s an afterthought, throws all the light in the world upon that statement. “He who is not with me is against me.” There is no benevolent neutrality. None whatsoever. He who is not with me is my enemy. He is against me. So we find the one who is completely in control of this kingdom of heaven.
And I tell you that being is called in scripture, Christ. But Christ is defined as the power and the wisdom of God. In the first chapter of the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians, “Christ is the power and the wisdom of God.” Don’t look for a man. A man is only the instrument through which this power and this wisdom is exercised, but Christ himself is the power and the wisdom of God. You and I are the instruments through which this power and this wisdom is exercised.
So Paul makes the statement, “From now on we’ll regard no one from the human point of view. Even though we once regarded Christ from this human point of view, we regard him so no longer.” You who are taking notes, that’s his 2nd letter to the Corinthians, the 5th chapter, the 16th verse. “From now on we regard no one from the human point of view. Even though we once regarded Christ from the human point of view, we regard him thus no longer.”
And then he, the author of that statement, defines Christ for us, “Christ is the power and the wisdom of God.” Now we are told, “By him all things were made and without him was not anything made that was made,” but nothing. And so we invite you now to test Christ in you.
Again from the letters of Paul, the 13th chapter, the 5th verse. In fact, read it through to the 7th verse, but I’ll quote you the 5th. “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in thee? Unless of course you fail to meet the test. I hope you will discover that we have not failed.”
And then he gives us a warning, for now he’s speaking only of power, power and wisdom personified in the form of one called Christ Jesus. And now he warns us, “I hope and I pray to God that you do not use it in the wrong way.” Even if you think, he’s implying now that I have not used it to the full of my knowledge, I’d rather that you hear and feel that I have made a mistake or I have failed than that you use it evilly, implying, stating quite openly, that you can misuse power.
Everyone in the world is using this only power, but they don’t know it.
And so he’s trying to bring us to the knowledge of this power and the wise use of it. It’s called, as we first quoted it, it’s called the pearl of great price. So great is this pearl, so valuable, that it takes everything that you own to buy it.
Now you don’t go and liquidate your stocks and bonds. You don’t sell your homes, you don’t sell anything in the world of Caesar. But it takes everything that you now believe in other than it to pay for it.
You believe in astrology? You’ve got to sell it. You believe in numerology, in teacup leaves, in numerology and all these things? No matter what you believe in as a power to control you, you’ve got to sell it. It takes all these beliefs and you’ve got to sell them. No one will buy them from you, but you give them up as valueless.
Therefore, there’s no price attached, no value whatsoever. But you can’t hold on to one thing you now believe in as a power that controls your life and still hope to buy the pearl of great price. Everything you now believe in, whether it be even the drugs that you take, even the things of diets, if you’re a vegetarian and you think that’s the way to God, if you’re a meat eater and you think that’s the way to God, if you’re a nonsmoker, nondrinker, and that’s the way to God, or if you are a smoker and a drinker and that’s the way to God. There is no way to God but Christ.
I am the way. There is no other way, way to what? To everything in this world, but especially to the Father. No one comes unto the Father but by me. And here he defines it, he is the only way in the world to everything in this world that you and I seek. And it takes everything that we own as to beliefs that we think are powers to guide our life, to pay for that pearl of great price.
If you think for one moment you can hold on to one little thing in the event this doesn’t work, you can’t buy the pearl. And so when I buy the pearl, I go all out and live by it. And there is no other being in this world, just this pearl, and I live by it.
This pearl is your own wonderful human Imagination. That’s Christ. Now I see her in the audience tonight. Last Friday night, this sweet lady told me this story. She went into the baker to buy the usual things that we buy when we go to a bakery, and the lady (10:00)
Mr Twenty Twenty and Victoria’s Take Aways
1. The kingdom of heaven is a state into which you can rise, where everything is subject to your imaginative power.
2. Everyone in the world is using the Pearl, the power of the imagination, but they don’t know it.
3. You must eliminate all belief in external power over your life, this is how you buy the pearl of great price.
4. This is the way to both The Law (manifesting what conditions you want in your life) and The Promise (awakening to your nature as one with God).
5. There is only ONE imagination, one consciousness, one God.
