The following is a list of random quotes, in no particular order, during a period when I was reading a lecture of Neville's everyday and was inspired to do so. Some are catagorized by the lecture they came from... some are not. It is really just scratching the surface of his insightful oration of language... You will In-Joy them!

"Man is in the habit of thinking of God and not as God."

From 'A State Called Moses'

"There is only one God and his name is I am! When you point to another as an authority in your world, you are transferring the power that belongs to God to an idol."

From 'The Perfect Image'

"I must consciously return to my new state constantly. I must feel its naturalness, like my own bed at night. At first the new state seems unnatural, like wearing a new suit or hat. Although no one knows your suit is new, you are so conscious of it you think everyone is looking at you. You are aware of its fit and its feeling until it becomes comfortable. So it is with your new state. At first you are conscious of its strangeness; but with regular wearing, the new state becomes comfortable, and its naturalness causes you to constantly return to it, thereby making it real.

Now most of us, knowing what we want, construct it in our minds eye, but never occupy it. We never move into the state and remain there. I call this perpetual construction, deferred occupancy. I could dream of owning a lovely home and hope to go there one day; but if I do not occupy it now, in my imagination, I postpone it to another day. I may wish my friend had a better job. I may have imagined him having it; but if I don't occupy that state by believing he is already there, I have merely constructed the state for him but not occupied it. All day long I can wish he or she were different; but if I don't go into the state and view him from it, I don't occupy the state, so he remains in the unlovely state relative to me. This is the world in which we live.

"Wherever you stand is Holy ground... because YOU are there"

The crucifixion is the history of man. Our human history begins with birth and ends with death. In Divine history it begins with death and ends with birth. There is a complete reversal of these histories. Here we begin in the womb and end in the tomb: but in Divine history we begin in the tomb and awaken in the womb where we are born. Now here in this fantastic drama I think we have misconceived the part of Jesus Christ and made of him an idol, and having made of him an idol he hides from us the true God.

Everything is ordered, everything is perfect. God planned it just as it has come out and as he willed it, it will be consummated, and no tyrant in the world is going to stop it. He will take all the tyrants in the world and use them in the fulfillment of his purpose, as we are told in Proverbs 16:4: "The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble." Everything, not just a few. For it takes the wicked being to cross your path to add a little more fire to bring you closer into the image of God. If it takes many to cross it, they will cross your path."

From 'The Value of Dreams'

"Everyone here - you are God. You are not some little thing beating your head out. God became you that you may awaken and know that you are He. Nothing you have ever done caused the so-called "Fall." There is no "original sin." It was God actually, willingly and lovingly becoming his own creation who is called man, that he might awaken it to become Himself. It was purposeful and deliberately done to awaken his creation, and when it awakens it ceased to be created for it is God, so "He who comes after me is preferred before me." Why? Because it came first. This which was first an image and was lit by God and is God, then has no beginning. That is the secret."

"Prayer is imagination drenched in feeling."

From 'Spiritual Sensation'

"Man has nailed God to a wooden cross by his concept of scripture, but God was never nailed to any wooden cross. He is nailed to your garment of flesh.

The crucifixion is over, for you have been crucified with Christ. Your death and burial is past. You have entered hell (this world) and you will rise from it after you have played all the parts you promised in the beginning.

The Reverend Dr. Trusler saw the Bible as secular history, and criticized Blake, saying he needed someone to elucidate his ideas. Blake responded by saying: "You ought to know that what is Grand is necessarily obscure to Weak men. That which can be made Explicit to the Idiot is not worth my care. The wisest of the ancients considered what was not too Explicit as fittest for Instruction because it rouses the faculties to act.".......

......"God became you and, containing all, God is absolute. The world teaches that God is all good and never evil. But if there is evil, and God is not evil, then God is not absolute.

If you can experience something that God cannot then you must be greater than God, and that is not possible. When you read of an innocent boy who was murdered and you react, you activate something within you. It may be tomorrow's tooth or stomach ache. I do not know what it will be, but God is not mocked. As you sow a reaction you reap an act, for you and God are one."

From 'Feel Deeply'

"But I tell you: not one moment in time is holier than another and there is no earthly place more sacred than the other. Wherever you stand is sacred ground because you are there"

"You may feed your hunger by thinking of your desire, or feed its satisfaction by thinking from its fulfillment."

"Feel in depth, for what you feel deeply is more vital than what you think. Every day you can think about how wonderful it would be if - and never act. But if every day you would feel how wonderful it is now, it will become true. Shakespeare said: "Assume a virtue if you have it not." A virtue must be felt to be assumed."

"Read the 27th chapter of Genesis carefully, remembering that all of the characters spoken of there are personifications of states within you. As Isaac, you always have two sons: your present objective world and your present subjective world. The story tells you how to clothe yourself with the subjective desire, through feeling, until it supplants its objective brother. That is how you move from one state to another until you reach the state called Jesus."

"If you think of a physical Jew you are in error. A Jew is an Israelite who is not a descendant of Abraham after the flesh, but the elect of God of any race or nation."

"Space is a facility for experience; but time is a facility for changes in experience, and when you arrest time you arrest change"

"You have left those who are self complacent, content with their own little circle. Those who know they are right are in hell where there is no forgiveness of sin. In hell it's all self-righteousness, all justifying oneself. One of the greatest of all human weaknesses is the necessity of always being right, and that is hell until one becomes loose enough to ask questions."

"That which can be told to the idiot's understanding isn't worth my care. The ancients discovered that which is not too explicit was best fitted for instruction."

"If God is in you, is there any place where God is not?"

"H. G. Wells put it this way: "Throughout the ages, life is nothing more than a continuing solution to a continuous synthetic problem," How many times have you said to yourself: if I only had x-number of dollars I could live comfortably, then inflation appears and you are forced to use your creative power to construct an imaginal solution to your new problem."

From 'He is Dreaming Now'

"You ask me why we go through hell in this world. To acquire a keyboard on which we will play tomorrow. Today it seems like a chromatic scale, one note after the other leading up to a huge keyboard. Tomorrow you will take two events widely separated in time and slide them together, and they will sound differently from the individual note when you encountered it, the individual experience. Then you will be able to move your mind into a larger focus and split it, as you would your fingers on a piano and hit - not two events widely separated in time, but hit five, hit ten. And you will take this fabulous keyboard of 6,000 years, acquiring notes, and you will play the most fantastic creation in the world." 

"The ideal man is always seeking a new incarnation but unless we, ourselves, offer him human parentage, he is incapable of birth. We are the means whereby the redemption of nature from the law of cruelty is to be effected. The great purpose of consciousness is to effect this redemption. If we decline the burden and point to natural law as giving us conclusive proof that redemption of the world by imaginative love is something that can never come about, we simply nullify the purpose of our lives through want of faith. We reject the means, the only means, whereby this process of redemption must be effected."

"We all regard feelings far too much as effects, and not sufficiently as causes of the events of the day."

From 'Radio Talk Shows'

"All meditation ends at last with the thinker, and he finds he is what he, himself, has conceived."

"The undisciplined man's attention is the servant of his vision rather than its master. It is captured by the pressing rather than the important."

"If you can change your opinion of another, then what you now believe of him cannot be absolutely true, but relatively true."

From 'Live the Answers Now'

"...for it is impossible to transcend a thinking being. Therefore, it is impossible for a thinking being to know a thought greater than self."

"Being a thinking being, you are unable to know a thought greater than yourself; for God - the Father of all life - became individualized in order for you to discover that you are He."

From 'The Secret of Causation'

"The secret of imagining is the greatest of all problems, to the solution of which every man should aspire; for supreme power, supreme wisdom, and supreme delight, lie in the solution of this great mystery."

Now, the words "call upon" literally mean "call with." It is nonsense to say: "In the name of Jesus; in the name of God; or in the name of Jehovah." If you say: "In the name of Jesus Christ," you do not feel anything. But when you call with the name, you say: I am unpacking the suitcase. I am hanging the clothes in the closet. I am putting the presents away. I am arresting the activity within and silencing those who stand before me. I am saying: "You love her and she loves you.'" That's calling with the name of God. And from that moment on, men began to call with the name of God.

"God became you and, containing all, God is absolute. The world teaches that God is all good and never evil. But if there is evil, and God is not evil, then God is not absolute."

"I personally have no desire to be named among the externally well dressed. I hope I am internally well dressed. I hope my light is blinding. I hope my garment is so powerful one cannot stand in its presence unless qualified to be there. And if I modify my garment to suit the level upon which another stands, that he may see the being I represent, I do - but certainly not on the outside." 

"Now Jacob, he who is called and loved by God, becomes Israel; so you see, Israel cannot be those who are descended from Abraham in a physical state. Israel is the inner man, the feminine part of your nature. I have seen that inner man and know he is my own wonderful human imagination."

"I know very able imaginists who suggest we look upon the history of man as material for the artistry of God. That's beautifully said, but I rather think it takes the horrors of experience to transform man into the beautiful being he was in the beginning."

From 'Trust in God'

"A friend recently shared a wonderful experience with me. It seems a neighbor was forever dropping in on her, constantly telling horrible stories about her friends. She tried to tell the woman how to change things by using her imagination, but she would not listen. And although she imagined her as a fine, positive, happy person, she remained in her negative state. Realizing the lady was a character my friend had to overcome, she began to change her thoughts. In her imagination she told the neighbor that she loved her. This she persisted in doing, until one day she realized she really did. That night she had this dream.

She found herself sitting in the shade of a beautiful tree. A figure approached, looking like a goddess, in a long white gown with loose sleeves and a silver belt. Suddenly she realized it was her friend, who came to say goodbye. They embraced and she felt a surge of love for that woman like she had never known for anyone before.

The next day this lady came to her door and said: "I gave my notice this morning and have come to say goodbye." Then my friend added this thought: "If I could fall as much in love with the being within me as I did with this lady, I would be completely transformed - which in turn, would produce great changes in my outer world of effects, for now I know my friend's transformation took place within me."

"You may think your yesterdays are in the past, but God knows you will meet them in the future, for your future is always confronting you and bringing in the harvest of what you are doing now."

"Let us assume that this is a dream and everything is perfect. You are happy and content and all is right in your world. Then persuade yourself of the reality of your assumption. Don't do anything to make it so; just trust the dreamer in you to bring it to pass, for the power who assumed your desire is the Lord Jesus Christ (not some guy who lived 2,000 years ago... Human Imagination), and all things are possible to him. Your assumption, though false in the sense that it is denied by your senses and reason, if persisted in will harden into fact in such a normal, natural way that you will think it would have happened anyway. That is the dream."

From 'The True Vine'

"Since the Father and the Son are one, I - as Father AM the true vine and must prune myself. Not realizing a seeming other was a branch growing from me, the true vine, I allowed myself to entertain unlovely thoughts of him."

"Your imagination is the true vine from which everything in your world is drawn. Any misuse of your imagination causes the deformities in your life."

"Jesus is the divine body, of which we are his members in the sense that he is in us. Christ is not a little man, but humanity."

"Now, each one of the seven words spoken of today is really a sentence, the first of which is: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do," and the last is: "Father, into thy hands I commit my Spirit." This is only a portion of the quote from the 5th verse of the 31st chapter of the Book of Psalms. The complete thought is this: "Father, into thy hands I commit my Spirit. Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God." Here we find the redeemer to be one with the redeemed, for speaking to the Father, he says: "Thou hast redeemed me," yet he has already confessed "I and the Father are one." So you see the redeemer and the redeemed are really one"


"Blake tells us: "Satan believes that sin is displeasing to God. He ought to know that nothing displeases God but unbelief and eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The Combat of Good and Evil is eating of the Tree of Knowledge. The Combat of Truth and Error is Eating of the Tree of Life. These are not only Universal, but Particular. Each are Personified."

"A scriptural episode is not a record of a historical event, but a parabolic revelation of truth which will be experienced in another region of the mind."

Blake tells us: "Cities, mountains, valleys, rivers, all are human. When you enter into their bosoms you enter into heaven and earth, just as you enter your own heaven and earth. And all that you behold, though it appears without, it is within, in your imagination of which this world of mortality is but a shadow."

"So when you read scripture always bear in mind the completely supernatural characters recorded there. See it as a drama that takes place - not out there, but in the depth of your own soul."

"The word "Caleb" is defined as "a dog," but its spiritual definition is "a homosexual." Now we see that Caleb - the fourth son of Jacob - is a part of the eternal play of God. This we are told in the 15th chapter, the 13th verse of the Book of Joshua, as God justifies everything he has made. When people sit in judgment, it is because they haven't the slightest concept of scripture, and do not realize what is taking place in the soul of man. Nothing is to be condemned, for God would not have made it had he not loved it, for God is love - this I know from experience."

From 'The Secret of Prayer'

"My old friend, Abdullah, gave me this exercise. Every day I would sit in my living room where I could not see the telephone in the hall. With my eyes closed, I would assume I was in the chair by the phone. Then I would feel myself back in the living room. This I did over and over again, as I discovered the feeling of changing motion. This exercise was very helpful to me. If you try it, you will discover you become very loose with this exercise. Practice the art of motion, and one day you will discover that by the very act of imagining, you are detached from your physical body and placed exactly where you are imagining yourself to be - so much so that you are seen by those who are there."

"Don't desire them, live them!" This is true. Desire is thinking of! Living is thinking from! Don't go through life desiring. Live your desire. Think it is already fulfilled. Believe it is true; for an assumption, though false, if persisted in will harden into fact."

"Prayer is psychological movement. It is the art of moving from a problem to its solution"

"Everything and everyone in your world is yourself pushed out. Any request from another - heard by you - should not be ignored; for it is coming from yourself!"

"Prayer is motion. It is learning how to move toward a change in your bank balance, your marital status, or social world. Learn to master the art of motion; for after you move, change begins to rise up out of the deep. The technique of prayer is mastering your inner motion. If you are seeing things you would like to change, move in your imagination to the position you would occupy after the change took place."

"Man is all Imagination, and God is Man and exists in us and we in Him. Man's Immortal Body is the Imagination, and that is God Himself."

"The word "prayer" means "motion towards, accession to, act or in the vicinity of".

"The story is told of someone who has died and has seemingly gone from this world. But the truth is that no one is dead to you, when you know how to pray. You may no longer touch, see, or hear those you love with your mortal senses; but if you know how to give thanks, you can move from your body of darkness into the world of light and encounter your loved ones there."

From 'The New Christology'

"You turn to yourself, and yet you address him as though he were another, because imagination is another until this garment is taken off for the last time.'

"When our late President Hoover addressed the GOP convention in San Francisco, he said: "The rise and fall of nations could be traced to the rise and fall of ideas implanted in the mine of man."

"If you know how a thing is made and it is taken from you, you can remake it again. So you see: knowledge is far more important than that which knowledge has made, but man is lost in that which is made and has forgotten the maker."

"I say the habit of worry discloses the lack of faith in the sovereignty of God. You believe in God? Believe also in imagination!"

From 'The Living Word'

"You can underpay a man, thereby inviting him into an embarrassing state - not realizing what you are doing to yourself. In underpaying him, you are sucking his blood; and those who live on blood are, in a sense, the termites of the world. The fleas that live on dogs produce nothing; they only live on the blood of another. Well, in our language, money is the life-blood of the world. When you underpay a man for his services you are taking his blood."

"Every child born of woman is a slave to the body he wears. There is no slavery comparable to the slavery of the body. If I were a slave to one who had purchased me and I must feed and clothe him, though he has millions and I have nothing, he is as much a slave to his body as I am to mine, for he and he alone must assimilate and eliminate for himself. No matter how many slaves he may have, he cannot command them to perform the functions of his body for him. He must perform them all for himself. Everyone who comes into this world becomes a slave to the body he wears."

"And I can't conceive of any slavery comparable to the slavery of the body. Just imagine: you must wash it, shave it, bathe it, and do everything for it. And when it begins to wear out, you must get glasses for its eyes, false teeth, hearing aides and heart transplants - to name but a few. You must continue to patch it up while remaining its slave to the very end. Do you know of any greater form of slavery? While in our teens and twenties we never think that our body might get old and wear out, yet one day we turn a little corner of time and it becomes so obvious. Although the body wears out and becomes weaker and weaker, you are still its slave. I cannot conceive of any greater slavery."

"We have only to enlarge our conception of causality to excuse everything and forgive all"

From 'The Free Man'

"Bible makes no sense when read as secular history, but it is an open book when experienced. Man is capable of doing, has done, is doing, and will continue to do everything recorded there until he awakens from the dream of life."

"Paul never understood the Old Testament until its promises fulfilled themselves in him. He thought he had to abide by the dietary laws and ceremonies externally, when it does not matter what is done on the outside. If you never see the inside of a church or meet any so-called holy man, it will not matter; for nothing must come between you and your God, and when you find your God you find yourself."

From 'The First Principle'

"Take my words and ask yourself to prove them to you now. Then let him unfold within you, and when he does, this world will lose its value to you. You will wonder what the fighting is all about. Why should anyone fight over shadows?"

"We live in a wonderful world, thinking we are going to change things, but nothing is changed on the outside. They can only be changed from within...'

"In his Book, Mark speaks of the adulteress generation. Do you know what an adulteress is? One who turns away from the truth, for when you turn from the truth you turn from the Lord. Anyone who has heard the truth and still looks for an outside cause, rather than to his inner thoughts, has committed adultery. He has turned from his spouse, whose name is "I am." It's just as simple as that..."

"Nothing can ever cease to be, for God - he who is in you as your consciousness - created it in love..."

"Man thinks that in some strange way he is going to improve this world, but it is a schoolroom and will remain just that. The kingdom of heaven is not interested in improving this world; it is only interested in taking people out of this world by drawing them into itself - which is an entirely different world. But we can change the events in this schoolroom through the act of revision..."

"This past Thursday morning as I was returning to the surface, I saw the finish of the Triple Crown race at Belmont in detail. Now this was Thursday and the race was not to be run until Saturday, but I saw the finish so clearly that if I had a million dollars I would not have hesitated to bet it all on the one I knew to be the winner. In fact I knew the race could not be reversed. It was fixed and finished. Then I asked myself: "What is this world? Is it not a school of educated darkness?"

"If everything in my world is in me, then everything in your world is in you. And if I am in your world, then I am in you."

From 'The Bread and the Wine'

"There are unnumbered schools teaching that you suffer because of something you did in a previous life. You must do this or that. You do not awaken by sitting on a mountaintop, or by diets, or by joining some "ism." You can only awake as you eat the bread and drink the wine, for that is the mutual forgiveness of enemies, and that place is the birthplace of the Lamb of God. You do not say to another: "I forgive you." That means nothing. But you bring him before your mind's eye and embrace him..."

"The wine is mutual forgiveness of all enmity throughout eternity..."

"for man is saved by (and only by) the saving of his fellow man."

"The Jesus of scripture is the human imagination in which the Christ of scripture unfolds, and the Christ of the New is the David of the Old."

From 'The Bibles Mystery'

"Let no one frighten you about the world coming to an end, only your journey will end. When scripture mentions the buildings falling, that's all symbolic. I experienced that back in 1960 when I watched all of the buildings fall, but they were not buildings here but beliefs by which I lived."

From 'Shared Creativity ''

"The pulpits of the world do not preach Christ, but the issues of the day, discussing what can be done to change this moral illness. That's not Christ! Tell the true story over and over again until those who hear it respond deeper and deeper. Tell it continuously, for there is no other story to tell. What does it matter what happens in a doll house filled with mechanical dolls? Are you going to be confused about this doll's departure and that one's arrival? The world is an externalized play, bearing witness to an inner activity of the soul. If you see experiences as horrors and become emotionally involved in them, they tie you to them. But if you can see that which is external to yourself, but reflecting your thoughts, you will change their flow, thereby departing from thoughts which would bind and curse you."

From 'Salvation History'
"Eternity is qualitative, not quantitative. It does not describe duration, but creation."

"When you sit down to work out one problem, you simply involve yourself with another and still another. But if you will dwell upon revealed truth, all the things you need will be taken care of."

From 'Revealed Truth'

"When the Rev. Dr. Trusler criticized Blake, saying he needed someone to elucidate his ideas, Blake replied: "You ought to know that what is grand is necessarily obscure to the weak. You also ought to know that what can be made explicit to the idiot is not worth my care. The wisest of the Ancients considered what is not too explicit as fittest for instruction because it rouses the faculties to act. I name Moses, Solomon, Aesop, Homer, Plato." Then he asked this question: "Why is the Bible more entertaining and instructive than any book? Is it not because it is addressed to the imagination which is spiritual sensation and only but immediately to the understanding or reason?"

From 'Walk with God' 

"Like Blake, I have found the Bible most entertaining, challenging, and instructive. It is not an easy book to read, however. If it were, it would not be worth my care, for as the ancients discovered, that which is not too explicit is fittest for instruction, as it rouses the faculties to act."

"Take this challenge. Read each book as though the depth of your soul is speaking to your surface mind. As though the ineffable Imagination is speaking to the human Imagination, and not to your immediate understanding or reasoning mind."

From 'Reconciliation'

"Jesus Christ is in you as your plan of redemption. As he awakens, his message of reconciliation is entrusted to you to tell it to your brothers who are waiting, confused by reason of the dream into which they have placed themselves."

"When this message of reconciliation happens in you, you have entered the state called Paul. Then you, too, will say: "From now on I regard no one from the human point of view. Even though I once regarded Christ from the human point of view I regard him thus no longer."

From 'Release Barabbas'

"As you know, we feel that life should be a perpetual increase of the things you love! That, to me is the art of living. In man's ability to live in the end, to live in the feeling of the wish fulfilled, lies man's capacity to live the more abundant life. I do not care what your objective is; feeling that you have it is living a more, abundant life."

"Those who are fighting against the establishment do not realize that they are fighting against the objectified images of their own mind."

"Let us assume that this is a dream and everything is perfect. You are happy and content and all is right in your world. Then persuade yourself of the reality of your assumption. Don't do anything to make it so; just trust the dreamer in you to bring it to pass, for the power who assumed your desire is the Lord Jesus Christ, and all things are possible to him. Your assumption, though false in the sense that it is denied by your senses and reason, if persisted in will harden into fact in such a normal, natural way that you will think it would have happened anyway. That is the dream.'

From 'Perception'

"Prayer is imagination drenched in feeling. A desire, drenched in the feeling of fulfillment, objectifies itself."

"There is nothing that appears in perception which cannot be duplicated in fancy, and what the world perceives is all imaginative in character. Here is a graphic example: I am sure everyone knows what it is to detect the fragrance of a rose. Now smell is a chemical sense and depends upon contact for perception. But does one really need a rose to detect its fragrance? Cannot its fragrance be reproduced imaginatively?"

"Having smelled an Easter lily, can you not discriminate between the smell of a rose and a lily, imaginatively? Then they do not exist independent of you, but live on some level (or levels) of your imagination! Can you call upon your memory of an experience of long ago, bring it back, and duplicate it in fancy? If so, then this world is no different from your imaginal one!"

"I urge you to use your own wonderful creative power and deliberately move into the state of your choice. Make it now by occupying the state long enough so that it feels natural. Haven't you had a suit of clothes that felt so new you were conscious of them every moment? I know when I bought my first suit I walked down Fifth Avenue thinking everyone I passed knew my suit was new. People passing paid no attention to me, but I was so aware, so conscious of my new suit. That's exactly that happens when you move into a new state. If the state of affluence is new, you think everyone knows it, but no one knows or cares whether you are rich or poor, so walk in the state until it becomes natural. The moment the feeling is natural, wealth is yours!"

"Blake said: "The oak is cut down by the ax and the lamb is slain by the knife, but their eternal form remains forever and reproduces its external form by the seed of contemplative thought."

From 'I Am In You'

"Here is a simple story. My friend wrote, saying: "When my little boy was quite young, as a family we called the Sears' Christmas catalog, the "Wish Book". Our son would spend hours looking through the pages of toys, deciding what he wanted for Christmas. This we have done for the past eight years. I am enclosing a card advertising the current issue of that catalog. As you will see, it is now called "The Sears Wish Book!"

"Whoever has that account thinks this is an original idea, yet my friend knows she is its creator. You see, there is no fiction. How can there be fiction in a world where imagining creates reality? For eight years her son has known the catalog to be a wish book, and now that has become its official name. If something you have imagined is delayed producing its reality for you, keep this story in mind."

"I know we are all children and want our desires instantly fulfilled, but countries plan for unborn generations. Parents with large estates plan, not only for the present little ones, but for the offsprings of their offsprings."

"You and I, however, are anxious and find it difficult to wait. Time and time again, ladies have told me they wanted to be married now, only to confess they are not yet divorced. I have heard them say there was only one man."

"Either that man or no man, yet they have married another. What they really wanted was to be happily married. Claiming it had to be that man, I have asked: "If he dropped dead right now would you still have the urge for companionship? If you would, then he is not the only man."

"Know what you want in life and do not condition it. If your desire is to be happily married, claim you are. Wanting a certain home, claim you have it. Don't think you cannot afford it, simply play the wishing game."

"Find your desire in God's wish book. Speaking to you through the medium of desire, make your desire real by feeling its truth. View the world from its fulfillment. Lose yourself in the feeling of possession and give it all the tones of reality. Fulfill every desire as you walk towards the fulfillment of your real purpose in life, which is to awaken God in you."

"You dwell upon it and don't neglect the principle of your wonderful imagination. Use it lovingly on behalf of everything, for when you do, you are using it on yourself, as there is no other. The world is yourself pushed out. Imagine and then drop it. You don't have to burst a blood vessel, call the "right" people, or do the "right" thing in order to succeed. All you need do is assume you are now what you want to be. Remain faithful to that assumption and in a way that no one knows you will become it. Then try it again and again, and while you are about your Father's business working this principle, another work, unknown to the world, is taking place in you, preparing you for the fullness of time when the egg you have been carrying throughout the centuries is fertilized."

"This is a world of educated darkness where you and I - infinite beings as we are - entered for a purpose, and only a very small part of immortal self entered."

"Our newspapers are telling us how to transcend death and live to be one hundred, adding years to life - yet no one thinks of adding life to years!"

"He is a universally diffused individuality whose name forever and ever is I AM. You may not be aware of who you are, what you are, or where you are; but by being aware, you are mentally saying I am. Every conscious being says I am; and if there is only one I am, then I am one individual - diffused! I am the sole cause of all that is. All"

"Every man's words are his judge."

"Good and evil are not conditions imposed by some benevolent deity, but states the soul must experience in order to surpass them and awaken as God Himself."

"You cannot measure your age because there never was a time when you were not, nor will there ever be a time when you will cease to be. You didn't begin in time. You came down into time - which you, yourself created - to experience good and evil, to expand the being that you always were."

"We become the embodiment of that which we mentally feed upon."

"You are aware that a bomb can kill millions; yet you also know that the ones who created and dropped the bomb will die, just like the millions killed; so you have nothing to compare to the power of that world, as it transcends anything known to man."

"By Mentally falsifying the facts of life, Man moves from passive reaction to active creation; this breaks the wheel of recurrance and builds a cumulativley enlarging future."

"Love's secret is expansion. Contract your senses and you see multitudes. Expand them and you will see one Man, one Love!"

"Your conception of another which is not his conception of himself is a gift returned to you"

" The man who does not control his feeling may easily impress the subconscious with undesirable states. By control of feeling is not meant restraint or suppression of your feeling, but rather the disciplining of self to imagine and entertain only such feeling as contributes to your happiness. Control of your feeling is all important to a full and happy life. Never entertain an undesirable feeling nor think sympathetically about wrong in any shape or form. Do not dwell on the imperfection of your self or others. To d so is to impress the subconscious with these limitations. What you do not want done unto you, do not feel that it is done unto you or another. This is the whole law of a full and happy life. Everything else is just commentary."

"What you are is what you have been... What you will be is what you do now" (Buddha)

"Just tell me what you want that I may hear you tell me that you have it. If you try to tell me how your desire is going to be fulfilled, I must first rub that thought out before I can replace it with what you want to be. (Believe it In)"

"If you believe in the horrors of the world as they are given to you in the paper and on television, your belief causes the horrors to continue."

"Nothing befalls us that is not of the nature of ourselves"

"Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change."

"Fools exploit the world; the wise transfigure it."

"Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself."

"If a man look upon any other man and estimates that man as less than himself, then he is stealing from the other. He is stealing the others birthright... that of equality."

"Never accept as true of others what you would not want to be true of you."

"You are Holy when you are in love"

"We are told in the 15th chapter of Genesis that "You and your descendants will be enslaved for four hundred years." Now, the number four hundred is the twenty-second letter of the Hebrew alphabet whose symbol is the cross. Your body (of beliefs) is the cross referred to as four hundred, and as long as you wear it you are enslaved in a land that is not yours."

"Interfere with your time track that you may do something about it for the passage of time cannot change it. If you wait, thinking there is going to be some change beyond the grave, I tell you you will wait in vain. There is no transforming power beyond the grave. All transforming power is in man now to interfere with his time track and you interfere with it by simply changing one moment in the course of a day, not accepting it as final no matter how factual the day."

"That man unless he awakes and changes the tracks of this life he walks them forever. So if you have not lived this life in such a way that you really desire to live it again, you start now to interfere with these tracks and laying new tracks."

"Life consists of the children you have borne and are bearing, and life is very painful."

"Let this thought burn itself into your mind. God is a thought in action!"

"Every generated body in its inward form is a garden of delight and a building of magnificence. Travelers from Eternity pass outward to bodies of flesh and blood and forgetfulness, but travelers to Eternity pass inward to the Father and Remembrance." (William Blake)

"Faith is an experiment which ends as an experience. Experiment by believing you already have all that you desire, and you will have the experience."

"Every event in life contains within itself something beyond its physical experience."

George Bernard Shaw. The thought was this: "Some men see things as they are and say, Why? I dream of things that never were and say, Why not?"

"Prodigal Genius, the Life of Nikola Tesla? He said there was nothing that was not within the Imagination."

"Truth as we see it is not confined to facts but depends only upon the intensity of Imagination."

"That which is... already has been; that which is to be... already has been, and God seeks that which was driven away."

"You may feed your hunger by thinking of your desire, or feed its satisfaction by thinking from its fulfillment."

"But I tell you: not one moment in time is holier than another and there is no earthly place more sacred than the other. Wherever you stand is sacred ground because you are there."

"Think of your desire and it's a shadow lacking form. Enter it and it is the only reality."

"Travel with me in your mind as we read the morning paper. On the first page we read of an air crash, a war, a hold-up, a murder, and embezzlement. Turn the page to the social column. See the pictures of the bride and groom and read all about their wedding and the guests attending. Another page lists the deaths, and finally we turn to the financial page, which tells us who is making money and who is losing it. Isn't that disjointed? Lost in the reading, we have traveled from violence to a wedding, to gossip, deaths, and finance. All written by ten or twelve men who are sound asleep, and dreaming their columns into being, while you - and the millions who read the paper - will see the outpicturing of all that you thought during the reading."

"In hell, the only voice is the voice of self-righteousness."

"So God became man, the thing that was dead, and to do it he had to lower himself to this level - which in comparison to the higher states would be called "dead." This garment of skin you wear has been long in preparation for the Son of God. We are told: "And He clothed them in garments of skin." It is for schooling purposes."

"Why are we here? To make images. The whole universe is an image of cosmic fancy."

"If Imagination creates reality, such perception of what is absent from the senses makes it so."

"Imagination is the power to perceive what is absent from the senses,"

"The natural man receives not the things of the spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him."

From 'behold the dreamer'

"If you know that you are God the Father, you will know that it does not matter what the world dreams. No matter how horrible the dream may appear to be, the dreamer is untouched by his dream. He who dreamed he was Stalin and murdered millions, is untouched by his dream and in the end will discover that all things work towards God's awakening." 

"As horrible as the world appears to be, it is like a tapestry whose knots and loose strings appear ugly on one side, while its beauty is revealed on the other."

"I know very able imaginists who suggest we look upon the history of man as material for the artistry of God. That's beautifully said, but I rather think it takes the horrors of experience to transform man into the beautiful being he was in the beginning."


"Let me put this in a simple way: Tonight, when you look in the mirror, you will see Esau. The one who is looking in the mirror is Jacob. The word "Jacob" means "to supplant." Jacob can supplant his physical reflection by replacing the one there with one he desires to experience. Loving Jacob, the Lord will mold Jacob into the likeness of what he is seeing, and you will become what you have been beholding."


From 'The First Principle'

"In his Book, Mark speaks of the adulteress generation. Do you know what an adulteress is? One who turns away from the truth, for when you turn from the truth you turn from the Lord. Anyone who has heard the truth and still looks for an outside cause, rather than to his inner thoughts, has committed adultery. He has turned from his spouse, whose name is "I am." It's just as simple as that."


From 'By Water and Blood '

"Now, if everything in my world depends upon a state of consciousness, it would be the height of insanity to seek the thing before I actually fix within myself the state on which the thing depends, for that which requires a state of consciousness to produce its effect cannot be effected without such a state of consciousness."


From, 'That Which Already Has Been '

"So if you get a vision, do not let reason interfere like my friend who lost $50,000 because he allowed reason to interfere and did not follow through on the answer that was given him. Reason divides the natural man of sense from the man of Imagination. Blake says: "Those who restrain desire do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained, and the restrainer or reason usurps its place and governs the unwilling. And being restrained, it by degrees becomes passive, till it is only the shadow of desire." If you desire the recovery of a friend, do not restrain it, for then reason will restrain it. Let no one tell you he is suffering because of the past. You are called on only to forgive him. You are not the judge."

"If you read a doctor's report in the morning paper and remember what the same doctor reported a year ago about the same condition of the human heart, you would find that the doctor had completely contradicted himself. Or, perhaps he is only quoting another doctor. Well, if there are one-million doctors, do you know you will find one million different treatments for the same disease? Treatments are more fashionable than the clothes you wear, changing often - but the word of God is forever!"

Blake said: "Why stand we here trembling around calling on God for help and not ourselves in whom God dwells."


"Human history and everything man has ever accomplished will prove to be false. Every great accomplishment will be modified in time, many times. Even so-called facts will prove to be error. In the end everything will be rubbed out, leaving no trace of ever having been present; for the only thing that is really forever, is what God is bringing out of humanity - which is himself. So in the end there is nothing but God - only God!"
