Neville Goddard on How To Meditate || EP 137

Neville Goddard was way before his time. His teachings are profound and powerful

In this episode I go over one of Goddard’s teachings on Meditation. He explains what meditation is and how to do it. I found this both simple and profound. Often times we make these things too complicated. Medication can be a powerful tool to access your subconscious mind and to manifest your greatest desires.

I used 3 songs by Mettaverse on this and it is truly epic. Look for the playlist below.

Welcome to the reality revolution. Today’s episode, I wanted to go over this wonderful teaching by Neville Goddard in 1951 Neville Goddard has this wonderful teaching where he talks about meditation and I thought it resonated with me. I get a lot of questions from viewers or listeners that how do I meditate? What should I be doing when I meditate? And I also get different responses on different meditations. I, I have a lot of people think meditations are different for what they know. People have certain beliefs that there is only one sort of kind of meditation that you go through, but I was very interested to read Neville Goddard’s interpretation of meditation and by listening to this, it’ll give you a little bit better idea of what you’re looking to do when you meditate, especially as a reality creator like Neville was. So he, at the beginning he says, many people tell me they cannot meditate. This seems to me a bit like saying they cannot play the piano after one attempt. Meditation as in every art or expression requires constant practice for perfect results. A truly great pianist, for instance, would feel he could not play his best if he missed one day of practice. If he missed a week or a month of practice, he would know that even his most uninitiated audience would recognize is the facts and so it is with meditation. If we practiced daily with joy in this daily habit we perfected as an art, I find that those who complain of the difficulty in meditation do not make it a daily practice, but rather wait until something pressing appears in their world and then through an act of will try to fix their attention on the desired state, but they do not know that meditation is the education of the will for when will and imagination are in conflict. Imagination invariably wins. The dictionaries define meditation as fixing one’s attention upon as planning in the mind as devising and looking forward, engaging in continuous and contemplated fuck. A lot of nonsense has been written about meditation. Most books on the subject get the reader nowhere for they do not explain the process of meditation. All that meditation amounts to is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention. Simply hold the attention on a certain idea until it fills the mind and crowds all other ideas out of consciousness. The power of attention shows itself the shore guarantee of an inner force. We must concentrate on the idea to be realized without permitting any distraction. This is the great secret of action. Should the attention wander, bring it back to the idea you wish to realize and do so again and again until the attention becomes immobilized and undergoes an effortless fixation upon the idea presented to it. The idea must hold the attention must fascinate it so to speak. 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 in the act of meditation as in the act of adoration, silence is our highest praise. Let us keep our silent sanctuaries for in them. The eternal perspectives are preserved day by day, week by week, year by year. At times where none through love or Lessard intentions were allowed to interfere. I set myself to attain mastery over my attention and imagination. I sought out ways to make more securely my own those magical lights that dawned and faded within me. I wished to evoke them at will and to be the master of my vision. I would strive to hold my attention on the activities of the day in unwavering concentration so that not for one moment with the concentration slacking. This is an exercise, a training for higher adventures of the soul. It is no light labor. The Plowman’s labor working in the fields is easier by far and what he’s saying is difficult to hold onto a thought for very long periods. It is difficult and it requires practice. Empires do not send legions so swiftly to obstruct revolt as all that is alive in us. Hurries along the nerve highways of the body to frustrate our meditative mood, the beautiful face of one we love glows before us to enchant us from our task, old and [inaudible] entities and fear beleaguer us. If we are tempted down these vistas we find after an hour of musing that we have been alert away, we have deserted our task and forgotten the fixity of attention we set out to achieve what man is there, who has complete control of his imagination and attention. A controlled imagination and steadied attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the idea to be realized is the beginning of all magical operations. If he persists through weeks and months, sooner or later through meditation, he creates in himself a center of power. He will enter a path, all may travel, but on which few do journey. It is a path within himself where the feet fall first falter in shadow and darkness, but which ladder is made brilliant by an inner light. There is no need for special gifts or genius. It is not bestowed on any individual, but one by persistence and practice of meditation. If he persist, the dark caverns of his brain will grow luminous and he will set out day after day for the hour of meditation as if to keep an appointment with a lover. When it comes, he rises within himself as a diver, too long underwater rises to breathe the air and see the light. In this meditative mood. He experiences in imagination what he would experience in reality and he realized his goal that he may in time become transformed into the image of his imagined state. The only test of religion worth making is whether it is true born, whether it Springs from the deepest consciousness of the individual, whether it is the fruit of experience or whether it is anything else. Whatever I shall endeavor to show you that the methods of mental and spiritual knowledge are entirely different for we know a thing mentally by looking at it from the outside, by comparing it with other things, by analyzing and defining it. Whereas we can only know a thing spiritually only by becoming it, we must be the thing itself and not merely talk about it or look about, look at it. We must be in love. If we are to know what love is, we must be godlike. If we are to know what God is. Meditation like sleep is an entrance into the subconscious. When you pray, enter into your closet and when you have shut your door, pray to your father, which is in secret, and your father, which is in secret shall reward you openly. Meditation is an illusion of sleep which diminishes the impression of the outer world and renders the mind more receptive to suggestion from within the mind in meditation is in a state of relaxation, akin to the feelings attained just before dropping off to sleep. This state is beautifully described by the poet Keats in his ode to a Nightingale. It is said that as the poet set in the garden and listened to the Nightingale, he fell into a state which he described as a drowsy numbness, pains my senses as though of hemlock. I had drunk. Then after singing is owed to the Nightingale, Keats asked himself this question was division or awaking. Dream fled. Is the music? Do I wake or sleep? Those are the words of one who has seen something with such vividness or reality that he wonders whether the evidence of his physical eyes can now be believed. Have you had anything like that awaking dream, something incredible that you questioned if it was real or not. I have any kind of meditation in which we withdraw into ourselves without making too much effort to think is an outcropping of the subconscious. Think of the subconscious as a tide which ebbs and flows in sleep. It is a flood tide. While it moments of full wakefulness, the tide is at its lowest abs between these two extremes are any number of intermediary levels. When we are drowsy, dreamy LOLed in a gentle reverie, the tide is high. The more wakeful and alert we become, the lower the tide sinks. The highest tide compatible with the conscious direction of our thoughts occurs just before we fall asleep and just after week wake up. An easy way to create this passive state is to relax in a comfortable chair or on a bed. Close your eyes and imagine that you are sleepy, so sleepy, so very sleepily act precisely as though you’re going to take a siesta. In so doing, you allow the subconscious tide to rise to a sufficient height to make your particular assumption effective. When you first attempt this, you must find that all sorts of counter thoughts try to distract you, but if you persist, you will achieve a passive state. When this passive state has reached, think only on good things of were good report. Imagine that you are now expressing your highest ideal, not how you will express it, but simply feel here and now that are the noble one you desire to be you are it now call your high ideal into being by imagining and feeling you are it now. I think all happiness depends on the energy to assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled, to assume the mask of some other more perfect life. If we cannot imagine ourselves different from what we are and try to assume that second more desirable self, we cannot impose a discipline upon ourselves though we may accept discipline from others. Meditation is an activity of the soul. It is an active virtue and an act of virtue has distinguished from passive acceptance of a code is theoretic. Theatrical is dramatic. It is the wearing of a mask, which in many ways is to me sounds like you’re acting and the idea that you can change who you are in your own identity and act and there are different schools that you can learn on how to act because you’re wearing a mask. So when you’re, when you’re achieving this wish fulfilled, Goddard is using the idea that you’re wearing a mask. It’s the attrical very much like Vadim Zealand says in two 50 the priestess and reality trans surfing, that life is like we’re on a stage and you were acting check on my episode on the three most powerful techniques for, for reality creation and I have a section in there on acting coaching and say this Don is philosophy method and those are things that you can do. You are it now and as your goal is accepted, you become totally indifferent to possible failure for acceptance of the end. Wills, the means to the end. Just like in reality, trans surfing intention, you do not want, you do not hope. You intend. As Neville says, as your goal is accepted, you will become totally indifferent to possible failure. It’s an intention when you emerge from the moment of meditation, it is as though you were shown the happy end for play and in which you are the principal actor having witnessed the end in your meditation, regardless of any anticlimactic state you encounter, you remain calm and secure in the knowledge that the end has been perfectly defined. Creation is finished and what we call creative ness is really only a deeper receptiveness or keener susceptibility on our part. And this receptiveness is not by might nor by power, but my spirit saith the Lord of hosts. [inaudible] through meditation, we awaken within ourselves a center of light. Neville says, which will be to us a pillar of a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. So this is an interesting teaching and I had wondered what Neville Goddard said about meditation. And a key thing that I take from this and as I apply in my own is that you should be regularly meditating. It should be a daily thing. [inaudible]. I have gone through several different phases and one phase. My vibration was at such a high level. It was starting to make it harder for me to meditate, but meditation, every single day is going to change your life. It’s a, it’s just like going to the gym and strengthening that muscle that you’re in and with the that you’re lifting, you are lifting a weight for your mind. You’re developing this capacity, holding a thought without brought pause in that moment for a long time. Minutes, as he said, it’s harder than somebody that’s plowing a field. He’s acknowledging how incredibly difficult this is and I don’t want you to think it’s difficult, but I’m only saying that in to increase your, it’s the intensity of your visualization. Don’t get distracted and make it a goal to hold a thought, a single thought for three or four minutes. Hold a thought of the wish fulfilled with the full visual and feeling altogether at once. If you can do that for three or four minutes, honestly ask yourself the next time you go through a process of running a target slide or visualizing a goal. How long did you hold it? How long did you hold that visualization? You’d be surprised. When I’ve worked with people, they, they assumed that they were doing 30 seconds or a minute, but in reality they were doing like six seconds and that might be enough. But imagine if you could do the same thing for three or four minutes. It’s simple, basic science and energy. You can just see it’s just like putting together a sculpture you need and it needs to hold together and every moment that you’re focused in on that thing that you want, you’re bringing energy to it because whatever you put your attention on, you bring energy to. So if you can close your eyes and you can imagine the wish fulfilled being in that moment of whatever it is that you’re visualizing, that’s when magic can happen. That’s when you can be magical. And so we need to develop this ability. Maybe I will put together a meditation on this, but extending the period of time that you hold your visualizations, make that a general intention of future meditations that you hold these for longer period of time. I’ll make an an intention to give you more time if you try my meditations. But even if you don’t want to use music, you should do, you should start a practice of intentionally meditating and according to have a Goddard. You can just use that time for visualization. Of course there are different kinds of meditation and sometimes emptying your head can be good as this discussed in different meditative texts, the law of one and Buddhism, there’s real power that can come to you. There’s real that can come to you in silencing your mind and that is certainly a part of the meditative process. But novel gutters. Not saying that in this he is saying that you can have the this, the peace and rest, but he’s saying that that is for you to access your subconscious mind, to induce a feeling that you’re, it’s the same thing as being just about to go to sleep. And when you’re, when your conscious mind, he uses the metaphor of a rising sea and once the sea rises to a certain point, imagine one of those houses that stand on pillars next to the ocean and when the ocean level rises, it rises right up to the wood. And there’s a certain part of the day when the water’s right up. And there’s a part one is it goes all the way down. And that certain time of the day when the water rises up, when you can touch the water, that’s when you can make an influence on your subconscious mind because your conscious unconscious mind is connected to outer intention is connected to your heart. And in many ways you, you can say that the power of your heart is connected to your subconscious and in fact many ways. And how do you really know the subconscious may be coming from your heart? The heart has more neurons, a more massive network than the brain. We get into this idea that just our brain is the thinking part, but the heart thinks as well. So are you meditating? Do you have a regular meditative practice? It is my purpose in life to make meditation fun. That’s one of the things that I do with my meditations. They’re not for everybody, but I want you to have fun with it because once you can get that switch turned where you start to think of meditation as fun and you look forward to it, there’s always time to do it. You notice, you always find time to do the things you love. You always find time to play those video games or go to the movie that you want to go to or see or your girlfriend or boyfriend to find the time. There’s always time. So my intention, my life and purpose in many ways, one of the many ones that are important to me is to make meditation fun because it is fun. It’s not hard. Don’t think of it as hard. Don’t put yourself into a barrier or jail where you think of meditation is difficult. Now I have another episode on how to meditate, but that’s been on almost a hundred episodes ago, so I’m going to talk about what I’ve learned. Of course, when I first started meditating, I would lay on my back and a lot of meditative texts that I’ve read really declare the importance of having your back straight. A lot of what’s happening with meditation in my own experience is that the energy needs to be balanced. Now, there’s no conversation of that here. Never Garter’s not talking about shock Rez or energies. He’s not giving advice on the alignment of your spine. Dr Joe Dispenza advises doing your meditation sitting up by laying down, you correspond the laying to sleep. Dr Joe concludes that, that you don’t want to associate to sleep. Your brain wave state needs to be in that between state. So I’m comparing what Neville Goddard and dr Joe Dispenza’s. I am found the most success from my meditations are sitting up, but they used to be laying down in the past. And if you’re in a position where that’s the only way that you can meditate, then go for it. It ultimately is not as important as we think it is, but I think that you should have an area where you can go where you’re free of disruption. Give yourself the time and don’t be afraid to fail and just get right back on. Set goals for yourself, but don’t be hard on yourself when you do these meditations. And for many people a guided meditation might be a good way to start. I have many meditations that I’ve created for everything from compassion to gratitude to complex visualizations, to meeting your higher self, your spirit guide to all kinds of different variations on changing your identity, to writing the alternatives flow and opening up potentials. There’s all kinds of different meditations that you can do and the thing is you want to find the one that works for you, and there’s a lot of different kinds and it’s okay to experiment and do different ones and sometimes if you have a meditation journal, if you find one that resonates with you, that lifts you up and puts you into a higher expanded state of consciousness, then get into a routine with it that works for you. If you’re starting in meditation, I recommend doing the heart. Meditation is five to 10 minutes, slowing your breath down, putting your hand on your heart, bringing up an emotion. It’s very simple, but it’s a study technique by the heart math and suit. They’ve been doing research and it genuinely, the alignment of your heart and mind through this process is pretty powerful and you can do that by capturing the feeling of the, of the wish fulfilled and ultimately will exceed what the over those things happen in real life. When you do this process, a lot of times we can make this stuff so much more complicated than it really is because it seems so magical and it seems like it should be hard, but it’s not. You can meditate right now and it’s okay if you fail. If you go inward, the path that you will go on from now to that point is enough to start a transition into something wonderful. Access your higher power, access, your higher calling, access, bliss, joy and freedom unlike anything that you’ve ever seen or experienced or imagine before. What kind of meditative practice do you have? I’d love to hear about in the, in the notes, a lot of times I think we can compare notes and we can create a meditative practice that’s even better, like a mastermind. So treat this comment section as a ma, as a mastermind in itself. Tell me about your meditation techniques and I would love to respond. I can tell you a little bit about mine right now my, but my biggest focus is to is to do energy exercises. Before my meditation, I do breathing and energy exercises as a means to clear my mind and bring energy to my mind when I start my meditative process. When I’ve studied quantum jumping, as I discussed with Cynthia Sue Larson, I have this belief with energy. Neville Gardner is not talking about that, but it’s what I do and I would love to know what your routine is. Do you have a routine for your meditation? Do you try to clear your mind or do you do a visualization? What is it that you do? Everybody’s different. Everybody’s on their own path, and the purpose of this podcast is to speed you along that path and to move you in this reality revolution to a path of love and into the positive polarity where incredible things can happen. It’s always a blessing when you join me on these excursions and I hope that this explanation of meditation, which is so simple and easy to understand, resonates with you like it did with me. Good luck with your practice and let me know if you need help. I’m available to coach you. If you’re struggling with this stuff and you want that extra level, I will talk to you for free for 30 to 60 minutes in an initial interview and, and, and I can maybe help you if there’s something that you’re working on, it’s really easy and you can check out my if you want to inquire for coaching, all episodes of the reality revolution can be what an incredible adventure we’re going on as we begin to start this practice of meditating, going inward as we change the world around us with our very minds. Welcome to the reality revolution.
