William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and print maker. Largely unrecognized during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. What he called his prophetic works were said by 20th-century critic Northrop Frye to form “what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language”. His visual artistry led 21st-century critic Jonathan Jones to proclaim him “far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced”. In 2002, Blake was placed at number 38 in the BBC’s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. While he lived in London his entire life, except for three years spent in Felpham, he produced a diverse and symbolically rich œuvre, which embraced the imagination as “the body of God” or “human existence itself”.
Although Blake was considered mad by contemporaries for his idiosyncratic views, he is held in high regard by later critics for his expressiveness and creativity, and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work. His paintings and poetry have been characterised as part of the Romantic movement and as “Pre-Romantic”. A committed Christian who was hostile to the Church of England (indeed, to almost all forms of organized religion), Blake was influenced by the ideals and ambitions of the French and American Revolutions. Though later he rejected many of these political beliefs, he maintained an amiable relationship with the political activist Thomas Paine; he was also influenced by thinkers such as Emanuel Swedenborg.Despite these known influences, the singularity of Blake’s work makes him difficult to classify. The 19th-century scholar William Michael Rossetti characterized him as a “glorious luminary”, and “a man not forestalled by predecessors, nor to be classed with contemporaries, nor to be replaced by known or readily surmisable successors”.
Nevile says: When you are discussing Blake you are discussing one of the greatest spiritual giants of all time. You might just as well discuss St. Paul, for they had the identical visions, the vision of reality. Tonight we can cover only
a portion of his gift to the world. In his “Auguries of Innocence” he says:
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”

Welcome to the reality revolution. Today’s episode, we’re going to delve a little bit into William Blake. William Blake is an author that Neville Goddard continuously cites in his lectures. In my recent interview with Mitch Horowitz, I had asked him if he knew of any other scholars or writers that had taken the same belief structure that Neville Goddard proposes in his lectures around biblical interpretation. And he had mentioned William Blake. William Blake is basically a poet, a very famous writer, but his, his writings are, are a little hard to break into a little bit. Uh, they’re fascinating. And so there’s clearly a connection between Neville Goddard and William Blake. And there are some secrets in understanding William Blake that will help us understand Neville Goddard and his history and his path and his understanding of the Bible. So just, I wanted to do the lecture that he has called Blake on religion, but to, to ask yourself, why is this important?
Well, first of all, he dedicated a whole lecture to William Blake. If you don’t know who William Blake is, he w he was around 1752, the 1820s around that time. Uh, he wasn’t very famous at the time that he lived. He was an English poet, a painter, uh, and he is now considered after his death, the seminal figure in the history of poetry and visual arts. What he called his prophetic works were said by 20th century Northrop Frye to form what in proposition to its merits. The least read body of poetry in English language. His visual artistry led 21st century critic to proclaim him far and away the greatest artists Britain has ever produced. He has a number of notable works, the songs of innocence and experience, the marriage of heaven and hell. The four ZOS Jerusalem, Milton, if you want me to, I will do a reading of one of his books.
The marriage of heaven and hell are songs of innocence and experience, but it’s mostly poetry. We could almost create a Blake type meditation where we read some of this poetry. It’s, it’s hypnotic. That’s the best way that I can explain it. When I first accessed this, it was just poetry to me, but Neville Goddard and his sharp intellect found deep meaning in this that, uh, led to him, him to his current understandings of the Bible. And so it’s pretty interesting to look back on Blake. He was, he had dedicated artists, dedicated writer writing and working all the way up to the, at the very day of his death. And he has influenced so many people. He wrote about religion but in completely radical way for the time, obviously. And looking at back on it, he was more and more respected, uh, but has an influence. Aldous Huxley van Morrison, Morrison, both of the margins, Alan Ginsburg, and if you check it out, Alan gigs Ginsburg read the, uh, marriage of heaven and hell.
Um, he, um, had that going with some jazz music, a very cool adaptation if you check it out. And if you have ever read the books by Phillip Pullman, his dark materials, which is also a series now the golden compass. And there’s also a series on HBO that is based around the marriage of heaven and hell by William Blake. So there’s all these connections and once you go down that rabbit hole there, it’s, it’s very interesting. Uh, so he, he liked it to envision and talk about God and heaven and hell and those kinds of things. But I think that there’s more to it. And then Blake was touching upon things and it never was able to understand it and pulled the secrets out of what William Blake was talking about. So this is a lecture called Blake on religion delivered on March 26th, 1963
when you were discussing Blake, you were discussing one of the greatest spiritual giants of all time.
You might just as well discuss st Paul for they had the identical visions, the vision of reality. Tonight we can cover only a portion of his gift to the world and his Auguries of innocence. He says, to see a world in a grain of sand and to heaven in a wildflower hold infinity in the Palm of your hand and eternity in an hour. What is the sequence? The most inanimate thing in the world? A grain of sand and in it to see a world that he moves to the first animation, a flower, and then to see harmony, which is heaven, to see a heaven in a wild flower.
Now he comes to space, hold infinity in the Palm of your hand and then to time and eternity in an hour. He moves on now to the bird world to show us the relationship of the whole vast world, the unity of the world, that we are all actively related. That you can disturb anything at this moment in any way and not actually affect the whole. Uh, Robin Redbreast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage. We think that we can catch the little bird and cage it for our amusement that would should be set free. He said, how do you know? But every bird that cuts the airy way is an immense world of delight closed by your senses. Five marriage of heaven and hell. So the little Robin Redbreast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage, a dove house filled with doves and pigeons, shutters, hell throw all its religions.
Then he moves on to the next state and what the world would call evolution, but he doesn’t call it that now into another aspect of the animal world. A dog starved at his masters gate predicts the ruin of the state. A horse misused upon the road, calls to heaven for human blood, Auguries of innocence, and he takes the stage is right through, you will read it as you go along. Here is this mental giant who saw the completely relationship of all of us. So I think I could be isolated where I in a dungeon and I thought of you, my thought is affecting the entire universe. I thought of you with NVR, with hate or with love, whatever the thought was. As I conjured you in my mind’s eye and represent it to myself as I want you to be, whether it is in hate or in love, I’m effecting the whole vast world.
And if I believe in the reality of what I have done, it will come to pass. And because we are all one all interwoven, I will use you without your consent, your knowledge to fulfill that which I have imagined at that moment. Then he makes this statement. What seems to be is to those to whom it seems to be and is productive of the most dreadful consequences to those to whom it seems to be even of torments, despair, eternal death, but the divine mercy steps beyond and redeem his man in the body of Jesus Jerusalem. He steps beyond because of this principle, man could be lost forever, not knowing what he is doing, but the divine mercy steps beyond and redeems man in the body of Jesus. God is Jesus and we are, but members in this divine body, therefore only one name. We are he. So Blake made this statement, man is all imagination. God is man and exists in us, and we in him,
He also says the eternal body of man is the imagination. That is God himself, the divine body. Jesus, we are his members. He makes every world and now he asks us, join with him in putting this to the test. When you read his works from beginning to end. He never wavers from this premise. One thing he asks us all to do and to always bear in mind at every moment in time to distinguish between the immortal man, which we saw. He said when I first did distinguish the immortal man that cannot die, that immortal man was imagination. Imagination has a body and he describes that body when he begs us to always discriminate between this immortal man, your wonderful human imagination and the state into which it has fallen and so you may be this night in the state of love. I hope you are the state of tenderness.
The state of affluence, I don’t know, but you may not be. You may be in the opposite state, but where are you in the opposite state or some friend of yours or some total stranger in the opposite state? He begs you, he begs all of us to always bear in mind the distinction between the occupant of the state and the state and lift everyone out of the state. If it is an unlovely state for man is like a Pilgrim passing through States as though I pass through the States of this country. If this night I pass through Chicago, the Chicago remains, but I the Pilgrim pass on. If I pass through any state, the state of poverty where I leave poverty, it doesn’t really dissolve. It hasn’t disappeared. I left it for anyone to enter. I hope they will avoid it, but anyone may fall into it or deliberately go into it by feeling sorry for himself, feeling unwanted and so he tells us of these enormous States, infinite States in the world that everything possible that could happen to man is already created in the form of States.
When man enters the state, the state unfolds because he, the operant power has entered the state and unknowingly he simply unfolds the state. If the state is one of wealth in a way, he does not know everyone in the world that can aid the unfolding of that state must ate it if he enters any state. The state of poverty, though at the moment when he enters it, he may have everything in the world. In no time he will grow the fruits of poverty in this world, for he is in the state of poverty, but he, the occupant of the state is neither rich nor poor. So Blake calls upon everyone to bear this in mind constantly and forgive every being in the world. For he says, mutual forgiveness of each sin such are the Gates into heaven in our world. If I could only remember every moment of time I see someone, I dislike that he is only in a state.
That is why I disliked him. I disliked the state. I identify him with the state I dislike, but I think it is the occupant. It is not the occupant. He could come out at any time in any moment or I could get him out if I pulled him out and put him into another state and I wouldn’t dislike him. If I bear this in mind, knowing my power to pull him out of the state, I could save him at least temporarily until he is actually redeemed by this divine mercy that steps beyond and redeems man in the body of Jesus and that is a true vision. We are redeemed in the body of Jesus. The day will come when you actually will be pulled into his presence for it is he divine mercy that steps beyond in spite of what we have done and pulls us right into his presence, then we are asked a very simple question.
The world will answer correctly or he would not have told us it is automatically done. We are divinely prompted what to answer, what to say when the question is asked, we cannot make a mistake for we are actually prompted from the depths of our soul and we answer at that very moment. He embraces us and we become one with him. Jesus. We are fused into the body of Jesus and you say, is Jesus a man? Yes, he’s a man. So Blake makes the statement, if thou humbleness dye self the humbleness to me, thou also dwells in eternity. Thou art a man. God is no more by own humanity. Learn to adore the everlasting gospel. So when you stand in his presence, you are standing in the presence of man and it is infinite man. It is Jesus and you are actually saved in the body of Jesus because he embraces you and your locked in his body, one with his body. You are the body. You aren’t locked in the sense that you disappear. You are that being you become one with Jesus, yet you do not lose your identity, no loss of identity and yet one with God for God is Jesus. Now this is Blake’s teaching and I have proven much of it to my own satisfaction by my own mystical experiences.
Now he comes to discuss the story of the virginity of the Virgin for we are not told in Isaiah seven 14 therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a Virgin shall conceive, embarrass son and shall call his name Emmanuel. The word Emmanuel means God is with us. Listen to it carefully. She will conceive and bear a son and call his name Emmanuel. The child will be given the name as a token. The child is not the great event. The child will be given a name and it is a token of deliverance.
The child himself is not the deliverer. The child is simply the sign of an event taking place. Now, Blake writes one single little verse and he speaks of it as the virginity of the Virgin. You are the Virgin, whether you be male or female. I am the version. We are all the Virgin. I didn’t know what was happening to me anymore. Then you will know what is happening to you. He puts it in four lines. What air is done to her? She cannot know. And if you’ll ask her, she’ll swear it. So whether it is good or evil nuns to blame, no one can take the pride. No one the shame.
So we said in the story, how can this thing be seeing that I know not a man. And through the centuries, thousands of columns have been written condemning the act for it was out of wedlock and they take it on this level. It’s not on this level. You are the bride of God as told us in Isaiah 54 five for your maker is your husband. The Lord of hosts is his name. So the one who made me is going to sire me without my knowledge, without my consent. So what error is done to me? I cannot know. And if you’ll ask me, I swear it. So whether it is good or evil nuns to blame, no one can take the pride. No one, the shame for one can take the pride. When I confess openly, I gave birth to a child out of wedlock for no one sired that child and no one can claim he sired it.
Now, whether it was a shameful thing to perform while the world must judge whether it be good or evil, well, who knows? One thing I know no one can claim they did it. Therefore no one can take the pride. No one the shame if it’s shame. So the prophecy was made and written in four little lines and the story of the virginity of the Virgin. He is telling every being in the world that they are that Virgin and that you will be sired by the Holy spirit and you will produce invisible form an infant just as told us in the gospel having produced it, you stand amazed because you, how could you produce it in such an unnatural way? It doesn’t happen in a natural way. Therefore you were the Virgin who conceived the unknowingly for. She said, how can I conceive? How can I have a child seeing I know not a man?
Then you are told the Holy spirit will come upon you and the child will be the child of God, but it will only symbolize an event that is taking place and you will be the son of God in the act. You are the child who symbolized your acceptance, but the son of God is also the God the son and the son of God is made to say I and my father are one so that’s a little bit of a mind bender and he is basically saying that we are the Virgin, that we’re also the son and the father all at the same time. Blake saw the whole vision so perfectly, so clearly and told us in his fabulous works said he of the Bible, I know of no other Christianity and no other gospel than the Liberty, both of mind and body to exercise the divine arts of imagination, imagination, the real and eternal world and to which we shall go after the death of this vegetable, mortal body. He would accept no other form of Christianity and he said all ritual, all creeds, everything in the form of a ritual was anti-Christ. No religion means by definition a time devotion to the most exalted reality that one has experienced. But religion as practiced in is simply artifice, creed, ceremony, confession and all outward show and Blake would have none of it. The whole thing to him was anti-Christian because to him the whole thing was from within something the individual experienced that no one by argument could shake.
Years later. Another brilliant mind. William James made this observation and wrote it in a letter, not in a book to his son. The son allowed it to be published in 1920 the Atlantic monthly and this letter, James said the mother seed, the fountain had of religion begins in the mystical experience of the individual. All theology, all Ecclesiastes, ism and secondary growth. Super imposed. These experiences belonged to a region that is deeper, wiser, and more practical than that which the intellect inhabits for this. They are indestructible by intellectual argument and criticism. Blake would have endorsed this 100% he couldn’t disturb him. They called him a mad person. Even to this very day they speak of him as one who was unbalanced. He confessed in one of his letters that William Calper came to him. Calper was one of the great poets and himself considered one of the six greatest of all writers of letters in the English tongue. He was a contemporary. He died in 1800 Blake in 1827 he was much older than Blake and Blake in his letter did not say whether copper came to him while he walked this earth or after he made his exit from this earth because Blake could not conceive of death in any sense of the word. Nothing died. All things survived.
He said, Calper came to me and to me would that I were mad always. I cannot rest. Would you not make me truly mad? Then he said, look at you. You are healthy and yet you are more than mad than all of us would. That I were as mad. I cannot rest until I am as mad as you are. He claimed that was what Calper said to him that he would now be a refugee from unbelief. We think.
We are saying when we believe in the evidence of the senses, when we believe in some mathematical state that perceives itself in performance. He spoke of Blake as one who was a real refugee from unbelief. I tell you a fantastic story and you don’t believe it would that you would believe, believe it through reason, would deny it and your senses deny it just to believe it and become a refugee from unbelief because true that religion cannot be analyzed. You can’t rationalize it. It is based upon these mystical experiences in the depths of the soul.
Blake said of the Bible, the entire Hebrew Bible. He did not mention a few of the works. He did, didn’t mention Ruth Nehemiah and things of that sort, but he said the five books of the deco log, the books of Joshua and judges, Samuel a double book and Kings, a double book, the Psalms and prophets, the fourfold gospel and the revelations everlasting. He did not name the prophets, which he called the latter profits. Also the major Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. He said, these were, these are true vision. He did not mention the epistles, but he said the four gospels, revelation and the Hebrew Bible are eternal visions of what really exists. He saw it so clearly that all these characters are personifications of eternal States and communed with these States for when you commune with them, they are seen as real as you are, but they are personifications of God’s infinite mind. Every aspect of his mind is personified. You are not an aspect of the mind, something entirely different. You are one with God. Man is all imagination. God is man and exists in us and we in him the eternal body of man.
is the imagination that that is God himself, the divine body. Jesus, we are his members part of the body of Jesus and because there is only one name, we are heat, so we pass through a process, a simple process which you can’t evoke. You can’t hasten it, but when you least expect it, divine mercy steps beyond and redeems man right into the body of Jesus. Then he passes through the stages where he is born from above, where suddenly he beholds the divine son David as his son. Then the great woven structure of the body. This temple is torn from top to bottom and he ascends to be one around this infinite throne of Jesus who is God. I actually believe it. I can’t prove it to you and I can’t take you with me into that moment of time where I experienced it.
I can only tell you I have experienced it and ask you to believe it and share with me in belief that you yourself may become a refugee from unbelief for the man who cannot leave. What he can touch with his hands and rationalize cannot believe, and this is something you are called upon, although you have not seen it. Bless it is the man who has not seen and still believes. That is how the gospel of John 2029 ends. Those who heard about it, who would eventually experience it like job. He said, I have heard of the with the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees the, he heard about it and then came the experience and he saw exactly what Blake is talking about because Blake saw it.
I asked you to believe with me and take his works. I wouldn’t attempt to interpret it for you. I have so many commentaries of Blake and they cost much more than all of Blake’s works put together. Any one of them. You can buy Blake for $5 all this including his letters I have invested in Blake’s works at home, close to a thousand dollars in commentaries and no to agree as to what Blake means by his fantastic experiences, but I bought all these commentaries of Blake before I had the experience. I could have saved $1,000 I don’t regret it. I have them at home and there they stand in my library. Three volumes. I paid $100 for published by a dealer just back from England. These are rare volumes. Others, he made me pay 55 and 65 for single volumes and I have the whole of Blake in Nonesuch volume. So read him and all of a sudden you see exactly what he is trying to tell you because you had a similar experience. Then comes the unfolding of the flower within you, the tree, and you have the experience, the same thing because all will have the identical experience colored a little bit differently because we are all unique in God’s eye,
so we have the same experience as we unfold on this great tree of life. Just think of it. If I can tell you what I would feel from Blake. Someone said he was the last civilized man. Well, I hope not, but that is what was said of him. Blake had no venom in him, no impulse to hurt. He didn’t have to restrain the impulse being all virtuous. He acted from impulse and not from rurals. He plea a virtuous man in the sense that he loved people. If I would take a summary of Blake and tell you what I get out of it, I would tell say, tell your children while they are little tots and teach them never unnecessarily heard a creature or desecrate a flower. That is the beginning of reverence and reverence is the beginning of wisdom. If you couldn’t hurt a flower, you couldn’t desecrate it. You see little children not knowing what they are doing, but in the presence of adults who should know better and they will take a lovely Rose and tear it and desecrate it. If the parent at that moment or the adult, whether he is the parent or not, which stopped the child and explain not at any time to unnecessarily hurt a creature. Take the wings from butterfly.
I did it myself to take the wings from a fly to take the swings from something else. No reason for it, but I did it as a child. I did it when it, when possibly there was no one around like my father or mother to stop me in the act. But I know today from experience you can take a child and its youth in its infancy teach it never unnecessarily to hurt a creature or desecrate a flower
that would be to it. The beginning of reverence and reverence is the beginning of wisdom. Take George Washington Carver who would take a flower in his hands and walk to and talk to it. The man couldn’t hurt it. He was innocent, capable of hurt. He would talk to a sick flower and ask the flower what was wrong with it and try to tell him that he in turn may bring in the solution to that Rose Bush, which he did and he gave us because he couldn’t hurt the synthetic world of ours. He took the ordinary little peanut. He talked to the peanut and wondered, what are you for? Why did God make you? He made you for a purpose and then the peanut communed with George Washington Carver and today we have 3000 byproducts from the peanut and hundreds of products from the Southern Pines and from other things. I heard that gentlemen that year he died just before he died.
He spoke in New York city at the forum held every year by the Herald Tribune, always held at the old Waldorf for story a. He said, and I heard him, I saw him that this concern about tomorrow’s not being able to feed the world from the Southern States of this country. Forget the Northern States, the Southern States. We could feed the entire world and clothed the entire world from the byproducts. What we could extract from the Southern pine and the peanut and all things. The synthetic world, he called it this synthetic world. Today you can go into a store and they brag about the synthetic garments. They call it Dacron or some other name and tell you how much better it is in the so called natural thing that you would normally wear. All these are synthetic garments and they claim they are better in feeling lasting wear and everything else. All that goes back to a man who couldn’t hurt and he was born a slave. I think he was sold for a horse, so we have to redeem him. Here was a man born into slavery who couldn’t hurt and he is one of the mental spiritual giants of the world. If you met him beyond the grave, you would see a glorious being like a Blake because he couldn’t hurt.
So I would say to everyone here who is in contact with tomorrow’s children started. If you start and tell the children never hurt unnecessarily. By that I mean if a horse breaks its foot, then you have to destroy it. You can’t mend it. And the merciful thing to do would be to blow his brains out. What would be a merciful act. But then you would do it not unnecessarily. Blake said, a horse misused upon the road, calls to heaven for human blood. A dog starved at his master’s gate predicts the ruin of the state. A Robin Redbreast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage to take this wonderful thing and cage it for your own amusement when it should cut the airy way. And then he says a Skylark wounded in the wing, a chair boom does cease to sing. You wouldn’t think a cherub one with this Seraph them around.
The throne of God would at that very moment when we wound the Skylark and its wing would be silent. But in the interrelated world, all things by a law divine in ones another’s being mingle so you could not wound a Skylark in the wing and expect a cherubim to continue to sing. All of a sudden things come to an end by our misuse of this fantastic power that is ours for being all imagination. As we misuse the power that is imagination. We cause cherubim to become silent. We caused the whole of heaven to cry out when we cage something that should be set loose and free in this world.
But you start, and I’m quite sure it wouldn’t take more than one generation if the world would believe it. If you start in the home with children, take them into the garden and let them see and watch their reaction. Some of them may be more violent and tear it off, but stop them right there. Don’t hit them. Just stop them and explain to them that it is a creation of God. The one who made the stars made this for your enjoyment, not for your destruction and explain they should not desecrate the flower. Then if you see them taking off the wings of the butterfly because they are human that way, explain, they should never unnecessarily hurt a creature. They would believe it. They trust you, and then suddenly that’s part of their structure. They couldn’t violate that conditioned mind. Why? It wouldn’t take any time to really become a world like a Blake and what a world that would be. So I say to you, Blake, read him. I could talk about him from now to the end of time and never exhaust him.
He lived to be 70 years old. He never went to school. His visions began at four and he thanked his father for not sending him to school to be flogged into memorizing the works of a fool. Even in today’s paper, the New York times, the science editor wrote the story of a man’s new concept of the universe. Radical departure from what was held last year. Well, this is a not final, you know, this will be a radical departure from what will be called next year. And that is man’s concept. Whether the thing is really expanding to the limit of complete explosion or whether it is like a breath where it will go to a certain point and then once more begin to contract taking unnumbered trillions of years they don’t know and they hope to find out through telescopes. So they are experimenting through telescope to the mathematical concept. But Blake made this observation.
God is not a mathematical diagram, not in eternity. Will you find God as a mathematical diagram when you find him, you’ll find him as man. So he said, God appears and God is light to those poor souls who dwell in night, but does a human form display to those who dwell in realms of day. When you meet him, it’s man, but how can I describe him when he himself describes the body and the form has love? How do you describe love? Yeah. I stood in the presence of love and he was human, but he said for has a human heart, pity a human face and love the human form divine, the divine image. So how are you going to describe love? When I stood in the presence of love, it was human and it was Jesus and it is form, but it is infinite love.
Then you understand the words concerning forgiveness in the heavenly. The only art of living is forgetting and forgiving and you stand in his presence and you hear these words ring out. Forgive them for they know not what they do. Luke 2334 mutual forgiveness of each BICE such are the Gates of paradise. No one can get through holding any resentment because you are holding it against a being when it should be a state and the States are fixed forever through which we pass. I would encourage everyone to read Blake. He grows every year bigger and bigger in the minds of men get he died and is buried in an unknown grave. I doubt if anyone truly knows where he is buried, possibly because he was poor in those days. In England they buried the poppers four and six to a grave. So who knows where he is buried.
At least we have his works. Those that survived and so after 200 years here is this giant and hint. His day we had men that can only be remembered because there was certain violence like George the third who reigned where he lived when this was a colony and there and here. This mad George truly mad and nothing more sane than Blake and George was then King of England. We founded his colony could give away sections of it, vast areas to those. He favored mad as a Hatter and they called Blake the madman and Calper who did go mad three times. He was put away, he appeared to Blake and asked Blake to make him truly mad, not mad as the world judges it because there are unbalanced mental States, no question about it. Make me as mad Blake till I become like you a refugee from unbelief. He was torn between the two.
If I could only go all out and believe in the reality of my imaginal act and not look back, just go all out and believe that things are as I desire them to be, but don’t look down now to my understanding to see if it is really happening, like pulling up the little seed to see if it is taking root. Really believe that it is going to take root in its own way. It unfolds within itself and grows, but don’t pull it up, walk right out in the belief that things are as I desire them to be, even though at the very moment it seems darker than ever and if I do that, that is what Blake did. They said that many a day.
He had not a potato in the house and no money. His wife must have been an angel of angels to remind him there was no food in the house. And then he would have to go out and sell one of his paintings or get a commission to make a painting. She would put before him on the bare table, an empty plate and spoon. So when he came to dinner, well that’s it. He took the hint and then would go out and either borrow a pound or a few shillings or try to get a commission for a picture. He had not yet painted. He lived in that so-called dreamworld.
But what has he done to posterity? How he has affected the entire world. And when you think today that no one who understood stands the English tongue called upon to make a list of the six greatest users of the English tongue of all times has the same order of value, but within six they could not omit the name of Blake and he never went to school. Just that inspired mind. The greatest, most wonderful mind. He said, he talked to Isaiah and Ezekiel and he asked them about the imagination and they said in ages of imagination, this from persuasion removed mountains, but many are not capable of the affirm persuasion of anything marriage of heaven and hell. Well now I could not if I told you for the rest of my days, exhaust or do justice to Blake, but just enough to encourage you to read him for yourself and take my experience having paid $1,000 for the works of Blake and you by Blake and omit the commentaries.
I have them at home and I read them and they remain red, but not to be re-read. But I make Blake my daily companion as I do the Bible. So take Blake and take the Bible and read it. If you don’t understand him at first reading, reread and keep on rereading. I’ll tell you one thing, if you do it for you, it will increase your vocabulary and lift your use of the words to Heights. Now let us go into the silence. So at the same lecture, they asked a question and the question was, what is the symbol of the Lark
Goddard says, when he said a Skylark wounded in the wing, a cherubim does cease to sing. He identifies that Skylark as but the externalized shadow of the song of a shero BIM, he calls the world of the shadows faintly reflecting the inactivity that cannot be seen by mortal lie that the heavenly world enacted has thrown its shadow to interest. Man in some strange way in this world for man is in a world of sea. It is on the sea. His greatest poem begins on the theme of the sleep of oo RO. This fantastic world is called Ooh row by him where we are so sound asleep, it is like an unto eternal death. And he calls upon us to awake. So all these will aid us to awake. So if the cherubim by his song in this world through the shadow of the bird called the Skylark, but we go out and we doubt, for instance, as friends of mine, I call them my friends wait eagerly for the dub season.
And of course I’ve always refused their dinner invitations to come and dine on doves. I love the doves. They come all over my place. And when the morning doves are beginning a Tuku and coming from the Barbados as I did, I have a certain native feeling toward the dove. And so they are fed. If you listen to him carefully, the male dub is actually saying Moses spoke God’s word. And then the female answers he did. He did. I listened to it every morning and then someone shoots him and asks me to come and dine. He tells us the little lamb, the lamb, misused breeds public strife and yet forgives the butcher’s knife for that purpose to feed these vegetable bodies, the shadow, the mortal body, you forgive them that use of the knife, but to abuse it, the lamb is used, breeds public strife and yet forgives the butcher’s knife.
So this was definitely very different and interesting lecture. You can tell that Neville Goddard was a huge fan boy of, of Blake. And I can only tell you that I have not found what he’s talking about in his readings. Um, but I’m a student of Neville Goddard and when he tells me to do something, I’m going to do it. So he’s telling me to read Blake. So I’m gonna read Blake now I might just read it to myself, but if you guys want me to read Blake, I can do a short, like 45 minute version of one of Blake’s then put it in the comments, let me know. And if there’s enough comments in the comments then I’ll read Blake cause it would not be your normal episode of the reality revolution, but maybe, maybe there’s something subconscious to it that would all waken us. Cause he’s saying that it’s part of our awakening this information.
So I’m not as good as Neville is at finding symbols within poetry and dreams. I just never have been. When somebody points it out to me, I love it. So then I can go back and look at it and make sense to me and I get it. I need, I’m improving that. I’m going to enter a state of understanding these symbols in my dreams. But this had beyond the stuff about Blake, some fantastic lines. The one that is classic of course that I love is you know, do not pull up when you plant the seed, let it grow, don’t pull that up. Which is an old concept that people talk about with the law of attraction in general. But it’s very powerful and the idea that we go through States that if you, if you see somebody on TV or have family members that you’re mad at, it’s not really them.
They’re just in a state. And if we will start learning that we can, we can start to change these States and we don’t have to judge the person. We can judge the state, which is pretty cool story that he gave about George Washington Carver was pretty cool where he’s talking about finding the beauty in everything. And then this a couple of different examples of people that were great that could not hurt anything. And so there was a plea for us to go and, and teach our kids and to teach those that to not hurt anything unnecessarily. And that is a path that will lead us towards something greater as implied by this lecture. I would love to get your feelings on Blake. Do you like Blake? What is your favorite book on Blake? Do you have a favorite poem on Blake? Has Blake taught you or helped you understand Neville Goddard as a Phantom Naval garter?
I’m a fan of anything where he got his understanding from. I want to know. So I would love to get your conversation in the comments and let you know. I’ll read any comments. Please put a light on this video and lots of new lectures are coming on the reality revolution. This one was interesting because it did not have the bib as many biblical for anybody that doesn’t like the biblical side of Neville Goddard. This one is the, is the Blake side. So, but it would be very cool to put some cool music in the background and read some of Blake’s poetry. And if you guys want me to do it, then I’ll give it a shot. So in any case, I love you all and thank you so much for sharing this journey with me to understanding the universe. All episodes of the reality revolution can be firstname.lastname@example.org and w
