Neville Goddard The Bible Your Biography || EP 247

Neville 02-05-1963


When I tell you the Bible is your biography, I am actually saying that you are God, and I mean it. We are told in the 82nd Psalm: “I say, ‘You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince.’” So I mean exactly what the psalmist said: that you are gods.

This is sort of the third in a trilogy, in this lecture Neville talks of actually meeting William Blake.

Welcome to the reality revolution. I’m your host, Brian Scott, and today we’re going to go over a lecture that Neville Goddard gave on February 5th, 1963 called the Bible. Your biography. This is a fantastic lecture, but the reason I’m doing this is I’ve had some recent episodes where I’ve kind of focused on William Blake. We did the lecture that Neville Goddard gave called Blake on religion, which opened up a little more information for me about William Blake and his teachings. And then I recently did an episode where I read the marriage of heaven and hell by William Blake. A fantastic poem that has really resonated with me. The image is still her lingering with me that, uh, enough to the point where when I had mentioned it in the Facebook group, somebody said that not only never did, never got her talk about William Blake, but says that he met him in a dream. So this is the lecture where he talks about actually meeting William Blake. It’s almost like a sequel to the last few episodes that we’ve been doing so far. But it’s also a really fascinating lecture on Nevels explanation of the Bible. I don’t know if you’ve listened to my other lectures, but if you haven’t, Neville Goddard has an incredibly unique explanation and understanding of the Bible in the way that he explains that. It is a biography that is a personal story and all of the characters in the Bible are state that you will go through on your path and journey as God. I have some additional episodes you should definitely check out like the book of job where we get this incredible interpretation of the book of job, which completely left me gobsmacked. So I have never considered the Bible in this way. And now that I have, I’ve gone back and started reading it and there’s so much wonderful things in it because the Bible before was very boring for me. And so this particular story is really about the Bible, but I was most interested in the section about William Blake and Neville Goddard meeting William Blake. So this is the third in a trilogy. So far we have Blake on religion, we have William Bleaks marriage of heaven and hell. And now we have the lecture where Neville talks about actually meeting William Blake in some spiritual realm. So let’s break it down. Let’s see what we can figure out from this. The Bible, your biography by Neville Goddard. When I tell you the Bible is your biography, I am actually saying that you are God and I mean it. We are told in the 82nd song, I say, you are God’s sons of the most high, all of you. Nevertheless you shall die like men and fall like any Prince. So I mean exactly what the Psalmist said, that you are gods, but man has such a strange concept of the word God. This morning’s mail brought me a letter. I do not know the lady. She claims she is 82 she said, I am returning your latest book, the law and the promise. She can’t be returning it to me because I did not sell it to her. She may have returned it to my publisher or to some store who sold her the book. She said, I read the 156 pages. The 40 stories told about the promise and no credit was given to God, not one who received the answer to their prayers, thanked God and so it is a godless book so she is returning it to someone. Do not criticize her. She is 82 and undoubtedly like my own mother and father who had strange and wonderful concepts of God but God on the outside of themselves. God was on the outside to whom they turned and she undoubtedly turned to some external creative father and that is her God. If she feels that way about it, you can’t blame her when she reads in this, as I have brought the two together and identify God with human imagination by identifying the two and making them one, I rubbed out the vision that has plagued man for we are told all things are we’re made by him and without him was not made anything that was made. Then we discovered that we could imagine ourselves to be what we want to be and remaining faithful, remaining loyal to that assumption. It became an external fact in our world. If all things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made and we did this as an experiment and it worked well, then we discovered God and he wasn’t home being in space who would return. We found him in ourselves as our wonderful human imagination that we failed many times. Certainly we are still torn between the concept of God, the father of David and what we ourselves discovered. So we were all still under that influence of an ancient concept of God. So she is going to return the book and let us all feel that tomorrow she will see who God really is, but don’t judge her not harshly anyway, we for exactly as she is, because at least she believes in God, which is far greater than not to believe in some power that is creative in this world. Now we turn to the book of books. You can’t read it by saying, well, I opened the book and read it from Genesis to revelation. There are 66 books in what we call the Bible. It’s a library. The old Testament is something you almost can’t believe. Certainly not with sense, without the key given us in the new, the newest, completely hidden in the old and the old is made manifest in the new. So we turn to the first book, the book of beginning the book of Genesis, and listen carefully. We are dealing with a mystery. When I speak of a mystery, I am not speaking of a matter that must be kept secret, but a truth that is mysterious in character. And the book of Genesis has a strange reversal of order right through it. The first shall be last and the last first. The reversal of order begins right in the very beginning. Let us see what is first stated in the book. In the beginning. God, that is the beginning. The end of the book in a coffin in Egypt in the beginning, God in a coffin in Egypt and the one place in a coffin is man. Then he was called Joseph and Joseph died. He was 110 years old and he was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Egypt. So here we find the beginning and end. I am the beginning and the end. The alpha and Omega, the first and the last. Let us see how the thing unfolds for us. In the first chapter. God’s purpose is stated. Let us make man in our image after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish in the sea and the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps over the earth. Let us give him dominion. That is God’s purpose, not his creative act as yet. His creative act comes in the second, but that is God’s purpose. Stated he is going to make man in his own image and give him complete dominion over all things. In the second chapter comes the creative act and God from the very dust of the ground made man and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being. Now jump from the second chapter, seventh verse to the 21st verse. There you will find the creative act. He States this in the seventh verse and then completes the creative act from the 21st through the 24th verse and God caused a deep sleep to fall upon man and he slept and then comes the creative act of the division of man, male, female. He now makes it man is not a male man, is not a female man, is the image of God a being above the organization of sex, but he is desired to be that thing. He is not yet completed to arrive at that level where everything is subject to his creative power. He passes through this divided image of himself called male, female. Then we are told in the divided state, he is led up into a world of experience. Here was a world of innocence because here he is dead, so the dead could not in any way be tempted. The grave could not violate anything. It is dead. Yet he is made alive. He has made alive by the sinking of God in himself for God. Don’t forget the last verse in a coffin in Egypt, but the story is having made the image of himself. The image has no power in itself. It only becomes animate and alive and responsive if God sinks himself in his image. So God sinks himself in his image and in that state the image becomes divided male, female as we are, and then comes the most horrible story in the world that God is in it. That image of himself, the very torment of eternity. It is necessary to take the image that was dead and just made responsive, made alive, but only made alive, which is a responsive state. And then to turn it into a life giving being just by God. So it took the entire story of 6,000 called six days to complete the act of God. Here you and I are the beings. I am not speaking from theory tonight. I am speaking from experience. I tell you the story is true from the beginning to end. And if I cannot stand here before you and demonstrate for your own satisfaction, the mite that is God. It is only because I am still wearing this garment of flesh. And so as long as I am wearing it, the glory of the heavenly inheritance cannot be actualized by me or at least is not fully realized in me while I wear and continue to wear this garment of flesh, but everything said in the Bible I have experienced, I have experienced the depths of my soul and it is all true from the beginning to end. A few years ago, William Blake, he died in 1827 and I met him in these heavenly spheres, the majestic patriarch, and he said to me, stand still now. Fall backwards and let yourself go. No restraint. Just fall. I obeyed him and I fell like some interstellar star falling through infinite space. When I came to, I looked and I saw this scintillating being this heavenly creature, human and yet not human. Human. Yes, but it was all light, all fire, and the heart was like living Ruby. As I looked at it, I was looking at myself here, I was looking at my very being. I came closer, discover the whole vast world of man was encased within me. Humanity in its fullness was encased within that one being and I met all the nations. All the races in the world were right in that body. As I looked at the bit of myself containing it all, I then felt myself crystallized and here I am in this world of shadows. Once more. That story is true of every being in the world and then Blake revealed to me what he meant when he said, all that you behold, though it appears without. It is within in your imagination of which this world of mortality is, but a shadow. I never fully understood those words before, but then with this vision I understood it. Then I understood more clearly than ever before. His vision called the vision of the last judgment where all the characters of the Bible are not characters at all, but only States of consciousness. When we speak of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all these characters, they aren’t persons as we are. They are States of consciousness and the individuals are only representative or visions of these eternal States as they were revealed to mortal man as we are in the series of divine visions as they were recorded for us in our Bible, I have seen them in my vision and you and I can be in any one of these States anytime a certain pattern that we pass through, but we can be any state and do it. Who does it? Don’t you say God can do it. God can do anything, but I would change the word if you would not be offended. And that means what I formerly called the God and still do because I like the name I call divine imagining and divine imagining and human imagining are one, they aren’t two and imaginal act is an immediate objective fact functioning on low intensities as we are an imaginal act is realized in a time process. And so every vision as it stands there, I assume that I am, but at the moment reason, denies and my senses deny. But I assume that I am and if I assume it and it seems to me real and natural when I break the spell, I know I have planted it and then it has it’s own appointed hour. Every vision has its own period of gestation. As we are told by the prophet, it has its own appointed hour. It ripens it will flower if it seems slow than wait. It is sure it will not be late. If you see it clearly in your mind’s eye, if you are really in the image, it will become just as objective as this room is now and again, I am speaking from experience sitting in my chair at home or reclining on a couch or in my bed. Suddenly without my eyes being physically open, I see a world that I would not see if I know where I am physically and I can’t deny it. It’s just as real as you are. It’s objective. It is seemingly solidly real and consciousness follows vision and I step into that world that I am observing and stepping into my image. It closes around me and this world, which is seemingly the only world I should know is shut out and I am part of the world. I contemplated, I am in it. I explore that world and it is just as solidly real as this world and I can’t find my way back to this world. Then I discovered the way back and the way I was feeling standing in that world with no street leading to this world. I assumed my head was on a pillow, on the bed in the room, in the house, in the city that I knew so well and feeling it. I suddenly found myself as though standing vertically, I felt myself any horizontal position and I am back but I am [inaudible]. I can’t move the body. It is just as frozen as this little instrument here on the table, just as solid, just as stiff within say a half minute. I could move my finger and then my elbow and then after great effort I could move and eyelid and open my eyelid. As I opened the eyelid, I looked at the familiar objects on the wall that I knew so well. I am back in this world and now this world has shut out that world. I tell you, there are worlds within worlds here you can take an image, the image of your success. If you want success, the image of your awakening. If you want it, any image and then you contemplate it and maybe you will see it as I am seeing you now and then consciousness may and I hope it will follow your vision and you will walk right into that image and it will close around you closing around you just as I did this and you have planted it, you entered that age as it were and fertilized it and bear in mind it is the image and the vision has its own appointed hour. Don’t try to hasten it. It ripens it will flower, but if for you because you were impatient, it seems slow, then wait, it will not be late. Not for itself nor to a world unless they are the same species and would ripen in the same interval of time. A chicken hatches out in 21 days. Some things come out in five months, some things that come out in a year and some come out in two years and so we plant things in this world and each has its own period of gestation. Don’t think for one moment in the world as we know it and as we are that you are going to think it now and then force ripening as it were. Leave it. It will come as you wish in its own full time. God is real. You may not question it, I don’t, but in 1963 the scientific world would question it. I don’t know all the uses of the word God, but I like it, but if it will help you any, I use the word I use most imagination because to me when I think of God, I mean the same as when I say divine imagination, when I speak of Christ, I mean divine imagining God in action. We are told God is Christ. Reconciling the world to himself. Imagining is Christ, which is God in action. So imagination in Christ with his imagination, imagining is reconciling the whole vast world to himself. But if it offends you, go back to the word God. But don’t put God on the outside of something separated from you because he is not God’s revealed name to this world is I am. That is his great name. Can you say I am? That is God what I doing? I’m thinking you are no good. Well that is what you’re doing. That is God in action and do you know you will live to see the day you are right. So I am doing what? Anything in this world. All things are possible to God. When you say, I don’t believe so and so perfectly, all right, that’s your privilege. But who is not believing it? I am. You say, well that is God. Don’t believe it. I am no good. I can’t make a living. Well that is your privilege. Believe it. And may I tell you how true God is. He’ll prove it. Finally you are relieved and you will say to me, I told you it’s no good. Can’t you realize that you are setting in motion and you were fertilizing it in your world for God’s only revealed name is I am. So what are you imagining today in the New York times, Brooke Atkinson has this article. He just returned from Leningrad. They were not concerned when he started through to examine his baggage concerning liquor or tobacco, which is the item they all look for four, it brings in revenue. They were only concerned about ideas. They said, do you have any magazines? He said, no, none. Do you have the Bible? He said, no, that is the only thing they questioned the second time. Do you really mean that? Do you have a Bible? It is the only thing they really wanted to prove beyond doubt. He did not bring into Russia and they could read. They know the Hebrew tongue, the Greek tongue. They have the different concordance says they could look back and find the true meaning of God and find it really means imagination. That is exactly what the word means. The word Potter in Hebrew means imagination and who makes anything? If God made me out of the clay, out of the dust, was he not a Potter and I the maid and he the maker. The maker was the imagination and then imagination sunk himself in the thing made and then gave me himself. Take that book of falsehood across the border. That man may discover who God really is, that he does exist and they will now without the consent of mr Khrushchev, assume they have a different form of government and no power in the world can stop it from externalizing itself in the world if they do it. So not cigarettes, not liquor, not anything. Furs diamonds, bring them all in. They’re all part of our way of living, but don’t bring in the Bible. In this country of ours, we aren’t teaching the Bible. We’re teaching ritual and ceremony and it’s all vague. It has nothing to do with the Bible. Bible is God’s revelation of himself to man. If you never saw the inside of a church, it makes no difference. In fact, we are told in the Bible not to build a church, but man insists on building churches. Build no temple for me. I will build one for you. This is what he builds, but don’t you build one for me? Second Samuel seven do not build me any tabernacle in this world. I’ll build one for you and some scribe to justify the building of Tabernacles inserted. The 13th verse, which all scholars agree is an insertion. It is not found in the ancient manuscript. I tell you, the drama begins in this manner. God made us and we are dead and there is no way to make us alive and creative as he is unless he buries himself in us and this is the mystery of life through death. John 1224 a grain of wheat. Unless it falls on into the ground and dies, it remains alone, but if it falls in dies, it brings forth much. So he plants himself in us and is crucified on us. Listen to the crucifixion. The crucifixion is over. Romans six five you weren’t going to be crucified again. You are already crucified. If we have been United with Christ in a death like his, we shall certainly be United with him in a resurrection like his. The resurrection is to be, it takes place individually and may I tell you from experience, it is true. God’s mightiest act is the resurrection and each individual will be resurrected and the day that you are, you will be the most startled being in the world because until that moment you had no idea that you were dead. You had no idea that you were in tombed. It seemed so natural to walk this worth and play the part that you are playing and think you are alive. You move from the cradle to the grave thinking you are alive and in this moment in time are suddenly resurrected at the moment of resurrection. You become awake, aware of it in your being startled. Joseph was 110 years old when he left in Hebrew. Every letter, every number has a certain meaning. 100 is the letter with its symbolical value of the back of the school. COF. 10 is the hand the yard and the yard begins the name of God. If you could sever the hand from man, he would not be creative. Just simply nothing. The hand fashions, the hand molds. It is a symbol of creativity and so in the back of man’s skull, a creative act is going on. As we are told in Philippians. He who began a good work in me will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. He started in you. He initiated it. He will complete it and a work is going on in man of which man is totally unaware. He is being fashioned into the image of God. When that image is complete to the satisfaction of God divine imagining, he awakens, he awakens him where he started the work. He started it in the back of his skull. He awakens in his skull defined, he’s in tombed. There is one moment of panic and then you make an effort to get out of this fabulous subculture and you come out of your school like someone being born and that is your spiritual self. You don’t know a thing about it. It is being done for you. Forget it. You were born physically by the action of a power, not your own. You will be born spiritually by the action of powers beyond your own. Don’t try to be Holy. God isn’t making good people, Holy people. God is making creators just like himself. If you think you are Holy, that is not the key into paradise. No matter how good you are, no matter how Holy you think you are, holiness is not the key. That allows you to enter that special grace, your creativity. God is doing it for you, working on you, bringing you to complete fruition and fulfillment. Try this principle of imagining and if there is one thing I think man could do to aid as something within a shell could aid the bird. The key is to is given to us. In the book of job, he complained and complained of all the things that were happening to him, but his captivity was lifted when he prayed for his friends. If you would use your imagination lovingly on behalf of another and rejoice in his good fortune without any reward to you, you will see how this thing will begin to enfold within you. So here is this book of ours, the beginning of all truly it is divine imagining and divine imagining buries itself in man in a coffin in Egypt. The word coffin is the same as the word Ark. The letter cough is this, and you and I have no, I know I had none. I thought I was still alive. I thought everyone was alive or dying. They became either filled with dreams or visions or in consciousness. But when I awoke, then I was alive, awake. I didn’t realize it was a dream within a dream. Here we are dreaming the most fantastic nightmares in the world. The day will come, you will be awake, and you will see as Blake describes it, I behold the visions of my deadly sleep of 6,000 years, dazzling around by skirts like a serpent of precious stones and gold. I know it is myself. Oh, divine creator and Redeemer. He had no idea that he had slept for 6,000 years. In his strange dream, one day he was resurrected and he beheld this Redeemer of his as a serpent of precious stones and gold and knew it was himself. God has so transferred himself to the individual that he became the being who is taken out of the state of innocence into the world of experience and now awoke in a world completely subject to the imaginative power. When I saw it, I had no idea that I was it. I hadn’t the slightest idea that the spell truly brought me out of a state of innocence for his own purpose and although he took me through the these frightening nightmares of 6,000 years, he took me through as the only way he could awaken and bring me to the state where I was not only responsive, but I became a creator and prepared to live on a higher level one with the gods. Everyone in the world will pass through the same state for the Bible is your biography. The only subject in the Bible is about God and because it is your biography, it is all about you and you are God. So stop looking for God on the outside. He sunk himself in. You now test it. Test yourselves. Do not realize that Jesus Christ is in you unless indeed you fail to meet the test. Second Corinthians 13 five I tell you that I know Blake hasn’t died because I meet him. He died seemingly to the world, leaving behind him, only the works he gave in the printed form. I talked with him. It was he who actually told me that to do, to see what he wrote in his Jerusalem, how to see one man containing the whole vast world. I had no idea when he told me that when I came to a rest, I would see myself as that man. I simply obeyed him and fell backwards and came hurdling through space like some media war and then when I came to arrest here is this heavenly being, radiant being that is all a flame and I saw it was myself. As I approached it, it contained all the nations in the world. I actually see myself containing all the nations in the world and then he explained to me all that you behold though it appears without. It is within in your imagination of which this world of mortality is. But a shadow, take any image in the world and enter it and the image becomes objectively real within your world. It is all contained within. You take out poverty, it’s there. Take out wealth, it’s there. Take out recognition. It’s there. Take out the unknown state. It’s there. Everything is there and each state is personified. So you approach a state and the state is personified and as you encounter the state, you enter the state and then you externalize it into your world. You are living in a world of shadows, says he. Until that day when you are resurrected, you will continue your journey for a little while telling the story as you encountered it, to those who will listen. And then when you take off your garment this time you take it off for the last time. You’ll never put it on again. There is no garment of flesh in the resurrection. Now let us go into the silence. So that is a wonderful lecture by Neville Goddard and there are so many things that I learned from this lecture. A couple things that stand out. I’d asked before in the lecture, 1,260 days, what he’s talking about, the 6,000 years, at least for the lectures that I’ve read so far, I have not gotten an explanation of the 6,000 years. He has just mentioned it. So now we understand that he’s saying that we go through a journey of different States over a period of 6,000 years. And his reference is the book of Genesis. When God created the world in six days, each day being a thousand years, we are God and we are creating this world that we’re in in six days. So that’s where he gets the 6,000 years. The visions that he gives with Blake are fascinating, and he’s not saying that it’s a dream. He’s not implying that there’s symbology here. He is saying that he actually met him and so wouldn’t you like to have a chance to sit down and talk to Neville about what he talked about with Blake and what he learned from Blake because I’m sure there’s a lot more to it than just this lecture and I’m sure that he didn’t want to go into too much detail, but I’m, I bet it’s completely fascinating. Another thing that stands out, this is the second lecture where he talks about the back of the head, the back of the school where our spirituality and reality come from. I do not know why he continually brings us up, but it completely links to other episodes completely unrelated that I have on this idea of the plate or plot in reality trans surfing or the assemblage point in Carlos Castaneda, his work in those arguments, there is a a point in the back of your head where reality is created, it can be moved and interestingly enough, Neville Goddard mentions assemblage a bunch of times. I was considering doing an episode on his use of assemblage, almost implying that an understanding of it, it’s easy to find links to things with the vast use of language that Neville uses. But still, this is not, even though it’s called the Bible, your biography, it is not a super biblical work. He’s really talking about the emphasis of creating and entering into States and he’s also giving emphasis on some things take time. He talks about the chicken and when it’s born it talks about periods of gestation. So when you go through this process he is saying that it can take two years, it can take five weeks, it can take 21 days and it will happen in its time. So another beautiful lecture that I absolutely loved, there’s so many good parts of this and it was so much fun to read, kind of makes me want to go and read the book of Genesis. I’ve read it several times, but now I need to know what he’s talking about when he talks about the coffin. Cause I’m trying to remember the last part of Genesis. He makes a good point in understanding the Bible, that it’s a library, that it’s in order that somebody else has put in an order, but to treat each book separately. And the first book, the book of Genesis is about God. And so sometimes we treat the whole Bible as if it’s one book, but it’s really a library. And another interesting thing, you don’t need to read the Bible to create your reality. And I don’t think he’s saying that either. You can listen to these discussions as a better understanding, but to me, for somebody that wants knowledge and information, I found it to be very interesting. The most important thing that I’ve taken from Neville that is very powerful to me growing up a Methodist and being taught about Christianity with the traditional Christian values that I understand God as being this separate entity sitting on a chair in this beautiful palace with long gray beard and a big old white robe. Maybe he’s got a staff judging over me, watching me every second. And so that’s my interpretation of God from way. That was my original from being a child. Right? So he is talking about our understanding of God is completely wrong. And so this idea of the story that he’s telling in this and multiple lectures is that God chose to give himself. And so he became all of us and each of us go through a journey that is completely different over a 6,000 year period of time. And then once we’re done, then we are done with our journey and we tell as many people as we can about it to light them up, to awaken them. And then we move on to our true power, going back to being God. So in my mind it’s clearly possible that God is within us and without us, but all of it is one. And I would love to get your impressions of this book. What is he talking about when you always refers to the back of the school? Is there something more that I’ve missed and what is your interpretation of the 6,000 years? Am I getting that right? So I do like how he points out that we are, we are not male or female. That was the first creative act. By God. So I would love to get your impression, and I think I might try to get somebody on a biblical scholar that can talk a little bit more about this, uh, because I’m very fascinated. I’d really like to know if there been some other actual scholars that have taken on Neville Goddard interpretation and tried to, to rule it out. Neville was never saying this is not true or this is my theory or philosophy. He was saying, this is true. I’ve seen it, I’ve experienced it. I don’t care what you say. This is the truth, which is very fascinating. I just sometimes wish I could have had a chance to talk to him and maybe I can, maybe in my dreams I will just talk to him like he talked to Blake. You never know and I’ll report back if that’s the case. But in any case, it’s always fun to go on this journey of learning and to share it with you. And so I really appreciate you listening. We got of course, many more lectures to come. We got meditations, we got interviews. We’ve got so much more. The reality revolution is growing and expanding. Thank you so much everybody for subscribing like this video. Maybe there’s someone out there that needs to hear this message to understand and awaken them in some special way like this video. Make comments, treat the comments as a laboratory. We can explore this lecture and really talk about it in detail. I would love to know what you think and all episodes of the reality revolution can be and
