If you are into the power of thought, positive thinking, and the law of attraction, then you have probably heard of Neville Goddard.

You don’t have to search around long to find out more about Neville Goddard, and his thoughts on ‘the law’, ‘the promise’, ‘living in the end’, ‘the law of assumption’ and generally what many now know as ‘the law of attraction’ type thinking.

Who was Neville Goddard?

Neville Lancelot Goddard (1905-1972) was the author of many works, including ‘At Your Command‘ and ‘Feeling Is The Secret‘.

He was an advocate of using mental processes to bring about desires and believed that all people are co-creators with an all-powerful, universal ‘law’ that is not limited by time or space.

What did Neville Goddard Believe?

Goddard was a student and teacher of the New Thought Movement which began in the late 19th century. The central teaching of this movement is that individuals can change their personal world through the focused use of one’s mind or imagination.

In particular, he had a strong belief in the role that imagination plays in realizing the life that you desire, living in joy and truly feeling ‘as if’ and belief in your ultimate desire.

The sayings go that Neville Goddard shared his thought theory in lectures and publishing, all for free. And while admired for this, he was (and still is) widely condemned for his belief in God and the Bible. Instead, Neville Goddard was said to have believed that the Bible was a series of stories and that instead of an external God, that each individual is their own powerful creator.

Interesting stuff if you have hours to kill. Or enjoy winding people up at dinner parties 🙂
