Fiction is defined as an imaginary construction which is unreal – as opposed to truth, or reality. But what is real and what is imaginary when, in a spiritual sense, all existing things are imaginary?
Mark tells the parable of the fig tree, which – having been cursed – was found withered to its roots. Calling attention to this fact, awakened imagination said: “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart that what he has said will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you desire, when you pray believe you have
received it and you will.” Mark 11.
Here is an imaginary act which has no support in fact. The tree was not withered at the time it was cursed, but when they returned the next day the imaginal act had been executed. So you see: this law is not limited to being constructive only. It can be used for good, bad, or indifferent purposes; for there are no limitations placed on the possibilities of prayer.
Now when you pray you must immerse yourself in the feeling of the wish fulfilled, for the word “pray” means, “Motion towards; accession to; at or in the vicinity of.” Point yourself towards the wish fulfilled and accept
that invisible state as reality. Then go your way knowing the desire is now yours. You did it and you will not be surprised when it comes to pass.
When you first practice this technique you will be surprised when it happens; but when you learn how to completely accept the state assumed, you will know you do not have to do a thing to make it come to pass, as the assumption contains its own plan of fulfillment. You will know that this world is imaginal and that an assumption – with no external object to support its truth – will harden into fact when its truth is persisted in.

Welcome to the reality revolution and today we’re going to go over another lecture by Neville Goddard delivered on June 7th, 1968 called, there is no fiction. This reminds me of an interview I had with Frederick Dotson and who’s also a great lover of Neville Goddard and he had mentioned a concept that has resounded with me that I absolutely love it. It’s an exciting idea and that is there is no fiction. All the stories that we see on TV, all the science fiction operas, all that stuff, everything that comes to us, where does it come from?
Well, it may be possible that it’s all real, either in another dimension, in other reality or another planet. There is no fiction. So I thought that it was cool that Neville had delivered a lecture called there is no fiction. This is a beautiful lecture and he deals with the idea, not using the word of pendulums, but also it reminds me of some recent events where you know with Coby dying tragically in this terrible helicopter accident or juice world overdosing or XXX Tyshawn dying, they had all talked about their dying young. At some point in time and did this cause their own death. In many ways, what we’re dealing with when we learn the law of assumption, the law of attraction, the idea that our thoughts create reality. This is important and serious stuff. It’s a matter of life and death and I so hope that this message comes to you as to the importance of what you choose to experience in your imagination. There is no fiction.
Fiction is defined as an imaginary construction which is unreal as opposed to truth or reality, but what is real and what is imaginary when in a spiritual sense, all existing things are imaginary. Mark tells the parable of the fig tree which having been cursed was found withered to its roots, calling attention to this fact, awakened imagination said, have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be taken up and cast into the sea and does not doubt in his heart that what he has said will come to pass. It will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you whatever you desire when you pray, believe you have received it and you will Mark 11 there is an imaginary act which has no support. In fact, the tree was not withered at the time it was cursed, but when it, when they returned the next day, the imaginal act had been executed. So you see this law is not limited to being constructive only it can be used for good, bad, or indifferent purposes for there are no limitations placed on the possibilities of prayer. Now, when you pray, you must immerse yourself in the feeling of the wish fulfilled for the word pray means motion towards excession to at or in the vicinity of
point yourself towards the wish fulfilled and accept that invisible state as reality. Then go your way. Knowing the desire is now yours. You did it and you will not be surprised when it comes to pass. When you first practice this technique, you will be surprised when it happens, but when you learn how to completely accept the state assumed, you will know. You do not have to do a thing to make it come to pass. As the assumption contains its own plan of fulfillment, you will know that this world is imaginable and that nuh Sumption with no external object to support its truth will harden into fact when its truth is persisted in. If an imaginal act produces an external fact to support it, that is not this world essentially imagined. If you dare to assume what your reason and senses deny and walk faithful to your assumption, believing in its reality and its corresponding effect is produced, can this seemingly solid real world be anything other than imaginable? Everything is imagined for you. Our God. All imagination.
God exists in you and you in him. The world is all that you have imagined it to be, even though you cannot remember when or how you brought it into being. You cannot feed the mind violence and not expect violence in the world. Although the networks will deny this. A friend at NBC TV studio told me that when it was official that Kennedy was dead, he received an order from New York that for the next four days, no violent films were to be shown. He said, pandemonium took place in the studio as they went through their files trying to find enough nonviolent film to cover four days. Lucky for them, most of the time will be taken up with the giant coverage of the funeral in New York city. One gentleman interviewed recently on television said that Senator Kennedy was always talking about being assassinated, that when the shots rang out, he instantly knew that Kennedy was dead. You cannot entertain thoughts of being assassinated without experiencing them. Who knows who unseen by mortalized was treading in the wine press influencing that young boy’s mind. Do not allow anyone to act as an intermediary between you and your God. For he is within you. God is never so far off as even to be near for near this implies separation. How can you be near God when he became aware of being you? The moment he bestowed his spirit upon you. He gave you his consciousness that you may by that consciousness understand the gift you have been given.
God gave me the gift of birth and fatherhood without the gift of his spirit. I could not understand the facts which have followed. How could I ever interpret the gift of belief or be awakened from my long sleep if he who interprets all things had not first become me? When Pharaoh’s Butler and Baker had dreams, they spoke to a slave saying we had a dream. Joseph then replied, does not the interpretation belonged to God. Tell me the dream. Now I ask you, is Joseph not claiming here that he is God? The book of Genesis begins in the beginning, God and ends in a coffin in Egypt who is in the coffin? Joseph, so in the beginning, God as Joseph is placed in a coffin in Egypt. Now having said that, interpretation belongs to God. Joseph then interpreted their dreams. Two years later, he interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and it came to past just as he said it would.
If this story is true is not the spirit of God upon man. Yes, because God actually became as you are, that you may be as he is except this literally for it is true. Imagination truly creates out of nothing. Thoughts call forth a thing that is not seen as though it were happening. This is accomplished by an imaginal concept touched by feeling, hearing of the success of another and feeling their joy builds a structure which project itself on the screen of space calling the projection reality. One may think it was created from the outside, but what happened had to happen as it did for there are no accidents. Last night, Kennedy could have used other axis, but he had to use the one he did for. There is a time for every imaginal act to project itself just as there is a time to be born and a time to die, a time to laugh and a time to cry.
In Shakespeare’s Macbeth. He described this world as a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing. All realized ambitions are full of sound and fury, signifying nothing for the real play takes place unseen by mortal eye and unheard by mortal ear. The drama of life unfolds from within for God. The father is molding you into his likeness, so set your hope fully upon this grace, this God gift God gives himself to you as he unfolds his image in you all else is nothing more than sound and fury, meaning nothing. Stalin’s daughter writing about her life in Russia and her father’s death told of a stroke which paralyzed one side of his body. Although his eyes were open, she doubted he saw anyone in the room. Yet the expressions on his face was that of extreme hatred. One arm was extended as though cursing what he saw.
No one will know what stolen was. Seeing no one knows the thoughts of a man, but the spirit of man which is in him own one can only expect relate perhaps in that flashing moment he saw his dream of life crumble into ashes and curse. The vision now in the eyes of million stolen was considered a very wise man. Yet the Bible described such a mind as a fool saying, the fool says in his heart there is no God. Show me a man who believes there is no God and although he may have many degrees and considered to be a very wise person, he is a fool of fools. The Bible does not imply that the uneducated man is the fool only he who says in his heart there is no God. Stolen’s world collapsed as the doors opened and he departed this little sphere. His world was real until that moment and yet it was a world of fiction. Everything here will collapse, but because this is a fictitious world, you can have anything you want.
Would you like to be known to fulfill a great ambition to be famous in the eyes of others? You can have them all if you are willing to assume they are already yours and in spite of the evidence of your senses and the contradiction of your reason. If you walk and sleep in your assumption, it will harden into fact and after you have experienced them, you will depart. Leaving all behind. Now I’ve learned as I listened to these lectures by Neville to always take every word very seriously and it’s great. In that last line he says, if you walk and sleep, it’s more than just sleeping in your assumption. It’s walking, taking physical actions and assuming that you’re taking that action in the assumption
which allows you to experience the wish fulfilled. Neville goes on to say your desire is brought into being by an imaginal act. It is sustained by an imaginal act and when that imaginal act is withdrawn or modified, your desire fulfilled will collapse and vanish. So I maintain there is no fiction. A friend sent me a copy of the June issue of Harper’s magazine, which tells of a trial of a captain in our air force as a school project. This captain wrote an essay titled captain Dale Norty has been court marshaled in which he stated the place in time, it happened
years later while in the air force, captain Dale Norgay was court marshaled, sentenced to a year of hard labor and discharged from the service captain Norty, his own court martial and then fulfilled it. So what is fiction? You can write your own essay on success if that is your desire and to the degree that you are self persuaded it is true, you will give it life in your world. In this last paragraph, note that Neville is adding the clues to seeing your reality. You. He says you can write your own essay on success if that is your desire. So one of the key components to Neville’s technique is that you desire what you’re imagining. If you find that you don’t desire it, then it may not come to pass. He says and to the degrees that you are self persuaded, meaning that you believe it, the importance of your belief is part of the ability for this to come to pass.
You will give it life in your world. Neville continues by saying, the secret is to imagine to the point of self persuasion. Can you believe what you are imagining? So you see that Neville is saying it’s not just about imagining but believing what you’re imagining. He goes on to say there are not two of you, you and imagination. You are not reshaping a piece of pottery when you imagined but yourself, you are moving into your desire. If you persist until you see exactly what you want to see, fix your position with the glue of feeling and remain there. It will be reflected on the screen of space. Just as your world is now reflecting the fixed state from which you are viewing it
there are two worlds, the outer world of effect and the inner world of causation. That inner world in the depth of your soul is where the true drama of life goes on. It is there that God is endowing you with life, giving power now a living soul. You are being transformed into a life giving spirit. On that day you will see this world from above to discover. It is dead and you are. It’s animating power. Blake said, where man is not nature is Barron. This is true for nature, cannot produce anything by itself. Man, a living soul causes things to appear live by his animating power. Although you are now animating all that you behold, you are destined to become a life giving spirit to fashion things in your own image. Bring them forth and endow them with the power to create life.
Believe me, there is no fiction. Every thought you think will come to pass. You may think it is just a thought and you will never become real, but it will think you are a martyr and you are and you will continue to be one until you change your thinking. The Kennedy’s believing they are martyrs. We’ll have these blows repeated over and over again until they awakened from within. I don’t care how good your life seems to be at the moment. It is a dream from which you must and will awaken. What do you love the most? Your husband, wife or child, he even be some inanimate object that you treasure. Yet one day you will have to tell it goodbye. Recently, a lady showed me an enormous diamond ring. She was wearing saying she had paid 75,000 for it. Although she has children and grandchildren, this ring is so important to her and she is so proud of it.
Well, you could multiply this lady by millions who love objects that are dead because they do not know what they are. Since we are living in a world of Caesar, live it to the fullest, but do not be in love with it. Do not be moved by its emotions as 1 million people were today as they watched a closed box, not knowing for sure a body was in it. Now the Bible teaches that permissible lies are allowed. An assumption not based upon fact is a lie, is it not? We are told to emulate the story of the unjust steward. When told he might lose his job, asked the one who owed 100 measures of oil to give him 50 another 80 and still another 60 and when he returned to his master, the steward was con mended for his wisdom, the steward falsified the record, the facts of life, which memory claimed to be incorrect.
Perhaps memory says you only have $10 in the bank, the rent is due and there is no prospects of more money on its way or that your friend is ill or out of a job. These are facts. Memory has recorded. You can falsify that record by a permissible lie by seeing $1,000 in the bank and the rent as paid by seeing who is ill as well or one who is unemployed as gainfully employed that which appears so real is based on a fiction anyway and fiction is fact in the sense that it is all imagination. You can lift anyone out of the state into which he has fallen and place him in another, be it a state of want illness or a failure. There are infinite States into which man may fall if you will, but believe the imagining creates reality and there is no fiction. You can rewrite your life and give yourself and those within it. Beauty for ashes, gladness for mourning and praise for fainthearted. Believe in the reality of your unseen act. Then watch it fulfill itself. If you have proof that imagining creates reality, it will not matter what others think. All that matters is that you try it and allow imagination to prove himself in performance.
I encourage you to live as fully and graciously as you desire to while you wait for God’s son to reveal himself in you, but don’t think that because you do not live fully and well, you are better off in the eyes of your father for you are not. He is only interested in the work is doing in you and when it is completed, you will be born from within. For until that happens, you cannot enter the kingdom of God.
On that day, you will enter an entirely different age where trees, fruit, beasts and birds are unknown. Yet not unperceived. It is a world beyond other seas, unknown and inconceivable to those who live in this world of death. When I say everything is at your disposal, I mean everything is in your imagination and you are its creative power living in this fabulous world. You can travel unknown seas by gondola and no fruit, trees, birds and beasts unknown here on earth and in that world you are in complete control while walking. The earth man is totally unaware of the food he is mentally eating, thoughts of horror and anger, jealousy and hate feed invisible monsters which produce heartaches and pain. Now this is the closest I’ve seen where Neville is really talking about actual pendulums because our thoughts feed these monsters as he says, thoughts of horror and anger, jealousy and hate feed, invisible monsters which produce heartaches and pain.
He goes on to say there are who want the spoiled fruit which is part of this age, but when you enter that age you are in complete control of your power. You realize that everything is a thought and under your control. We are told I has not seen, ear has not heard, and it has not entered into the heart of man. The things already prepared by God for those who love him. When you are one with your father, you will awaken to find yourself in that age which has already been prepared for you. So set your heart fully upon that word which will enter at the unveiling of Christ from within.
As you awaken one after the other, no two will have a duplicate experience. The symbolism will be there. However, has there well as the time element, it is always five months between the vision of the birth and the revelation of God’s son. It appears that Neville is talking here about the 1,260 days and so I recommend checking out my reading of the lecture 1,260 days for better understanding of what he’s talking about there. Neville then says in the story recorded in the 40th chapter of the book of Genesis, Joseph gave different interpretations to the number three in both dreams. The Baker had three baskets on his head with birds eating the bread contained there in Joseph interpreted the dream by saying, in the three days you will hang from a tree and the birds will eat upon your flesh and it came to pass as he interpreted it.
The Butler saw a vine with three branches, which budded, blossomed and ripened into grapes. He put the grapes into a cup, crushed them, and gave the cup to the Pharaoh. The most important thing here is the great vessel. Anyone can poison wine. So the cup bear must be a trusted servant. It is he who drinks the wine first and if poisoned, he dies and not the master. Joseph interpreted the dream saying that the Butler, the cup bearer would be restored in three days and he was. Now if it takes the spirit of God to interpret all dreams and all dreams come from God is not he who interprets the dream awakened demand called Jesus Christ. Remember, regardless of what happened today or what the future looks like, there is no fiction. Imagination creates its own reality. You have the power to change your present and your future by writing a glorious tale about yourself and those you love. Make it a first person present tense experience or something you have already accomplished and then live in that state for imagining does create reality. The stories I have spoken of come from the 11th chapter of the book of Mark. This entire chapter supports my theory. I urge you to have faith in God. He is not on the outside. He is not even near because God actually becomes you.
You will know you are he. When God’s son David calls you father, I can tell you that from now until the end of time God became you, but only when his son calls you. Father will you know who you really are. In the meanwhile, believe me and test your creative power. You can bring anything out of nothing. By conceiving a scene, implying the fulfillment of a dream and believing in its reality, persist in your belief and your invisible dream will become a visible fact
that is falsifying the records which is allowed. We are called upon to emulate the unjust steward. The word steward originally meant the keeper of the pig, the symbol of Jesus Christ, the human imagination. You are the steward of your imagination. Feed it loving thoughts for yourself and others. If you feed on violence, you will become violent for you become what you eat. Born in this little Island of our betas, we kept ducks and chickens for our own consumption. If mother wanted a pair of ducks for Sunday dinner 10 days before, she would tell one of her nine sons to put a brace of ducks aside. Now our ducks were raised in the yard and fed on fish, which was cheap and plentiful, not on corn, which had to be imported and was very expensive. We could buy a bucket of fish scraps for a penny, so we fed the chickens and the ducks fish.
Consequently, they smelled and tasted like fish, but if they were separated 10 days or two weeks before you wanted them for dinner and stuffed with corn and food of that nature, the entire texture of their flesh changed during this interval of time. However, they could not be given even a little bit of fish. They had to have a complete radical change of diet. If mother’s command was not remembered until perhaps four days before the meal, everyone knew it because when the birds were plucked and the heat began to express the birds, the entire neighborhood knew the Goddard’s. We’re having fish for dinner and no one could eat them. But if their diet was changed from fish to corn and only corn for the interval of time, we had delicious ducks for dinner, which tasted like ducks. Now, although we are not ducks, we do feed on ideas. Feed your mind a certain idea for one week and you will change its structure.
continue for two weeks and you will be fed on lovely thoughts. You see, this is a fictitious world and you are its author. Nothing is impossible. It’s all fiction anyway, so live no belly and dream beautiful dreams for you are all imagination and your human imagination is the Lord God, Jesus the Christ. Now let us go into the silence.
I really enjoy this lecture because it deals with how we create our realities and how other people have created our realities and there are consequences to these realities. And he gives some examples of Robert Kennedy and this is, this lectures clearly delivered right after his assassination. How Robert Kennedy would always imagine being assassinated. Me, maybe it was because of his brother, but you could see how he had entered into that state. And this is very interesting, very related to the lecture on mental diets. You are on a diet of what you eat and he as he explains at the end what you think is what you become. It’s just like what you eat, you are what you eat and he gives a timeframe at the end here. So continue for two weeks of lovely thoughts and that’s when you’ll see a change. He’s probably done this before, but oftentimes he will recommend changing your thoughts but hasn’t actually given a specific timeframe. So if you’re out there and you want to know, Hey, keep going, adjust your thoughts lovingly and give it a couple of weeks and you’ll start to see changes. But also he emphasizes in this that there is a level of self persuasion are required. So you need to believe in what you’re imagining. And of course, as always, he emphasizes there is no difference between you and God. God is not near God is in you, is you, which is always important.
And it’s true. We can be unaware of the thought that we have and the fears that we have. And I personally believe we’re seeing this on a large scale all around us because we have the media and social media, everybody feeding on these fears and our fears are coming to pass more and more. So you have a responsibility to become the light of the people around you and change that for you can change what people are imagining. And you can imagine for other people lovingly.
So the beauty of Neville’s lectures is always their simplicity. He’s not making it difficult to understand, but the story resonates and its importance resonates. And we’re dealing not just with biblical scriptures and interesting fun ideas. This is life and death. And if you are, if you have beliefs, uh, of deadly situations in your future, then watch them. People have maybe heard my own story and where I had a home invasion and let me, let me admit something. I absolutely imagine that because there was some, some crazy kids in, in the neighborhood I was living at the time. And I remember having an early plane trip on vacation and seeing these kids, uh, you know, it was four in the morning. I was like, and I imagine them, Hey, they’re going to probably Rob my house and it’s not a good thing. Couple months later they did. So be aware of those fleeting thoughts and imagine the opposite if it’s not something that you want, just become aware of them. And this is why meditation is so important because you can intentionally think in a certain way and really work on it. And the better that you get, it’ll just be incorporated into your everyday life. But I would love to know what you think of this lecture for. I believe there is no fiction. Everything is imagination. All the books that you’re reading in some reality exist.
They’re not simply created out of nowhere by neurons in our brains. They are existing in an non-local state that come to us through our imaginations. So imagine that the everything that we know, star Trek is real, the scythe and the Jedi are real. Everything is real. There is no fiction. And your thoughts
are real. So I would love to get your impressions on this lecture is powerful and very interesting and an great example of how Neville was dealing with events that were happening in his world at the time and how he used it and dealt with it and used his own imagination and understood his own imagination. So I always enjoy it. And you for following me on this journey as I experience and learn Neville Goddard, let me know your thoughts.
