Neville Goddard (1905-1972) was one of the most intriguing and intellectually arousing spiritual teachers of the last century. His work, written under the solitary pen-name Neville, was as radical as it was simple:
Neville taught that God is none other than our own wonderful human imagination.
Your Imagination - whether reactive or awakened and feelings shape your world. And your world can be reshaped when you use the imaginal and emotive states that created it.
Neville’s philosophy is so audacious that most serious people immediately want to argue with it or push it away. Yet this underground thinker has been steadily growing in popularity. His ideas, which he articulated in books and thousands of lectures, represent the most elegant and rigorous thought system to emerge from the culture of mind-power metaphysics that swept America in the last century. Neville’s statements, beginning in the 1930s, bear striking (and serious) resemblance to contemporary findings in quantum physics, neuroplasticity, and other fields of study.
Neville’s techniques for self development are simple, original, and profoundly impactful for the individual.
Israel Regardie wrote in 1946 of Neville: “Of all the metaphysical systems with which I am acquainted, Neville’s is the most magical.”
