Once again I dive into another one of Neville Goddard’s brilliant lectures. This one is called The Pruning Shears of Revision.

This deals with the wonderful technique called revision which you revise you previous day as you go to bed. I believe when done regularly this helps you to avoid induced transitions into negative lifelines and helps keep you on the path of your intention. Neville’s writing and examples are fantastic

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

Welcome to the reality revolution. I’m your host, Brian Scott, and today we’re going to do a little deep dive on a lecture that Neville got her did. That is one of my favorites called the pruning shears of revision. I had mentioned revision in another episode when he talks about how to use the imagination and he advises revising. You’re at night when you go to sleep revising the day that you’ve just had correcting the things you wanted to correct, and I kind of get at this a little bit in my time travel meditation. I have a meditation on time travel. You can revise your past and you can see results now when you do it. I think that it has tremendous effects on many levels. Even if you start to understand reality trans surfing and the possibility of parallel realities, we are. When you start to change your past, it seems like you move into different timelines and Neville didn’t want to make it too complicated. He had a great lesson in here is where he talks about revision. It’s called the pruning shears of revision. This morning subject is the pruning shears of revision. I firmly believe that if you will wisely and daily use the pruning shears of revision that you will find there is no objective beyond your ability to realize and I mean that seriously. No objective beyond your ability to realize. When I was a boy of seven, a lady said to me, I have had a vision concerning you. I’ll make it now very, very clear to you. I do not know what it is you’re going to do, but I’ve been showing you we’ll do something that through the centuries after you’re gone, man will not undo it. I can see it and through the centuries you will grow in stature long after you’ve gone and when and then three men will be mentioned in hundreds of years to come and you will be one of the three when something is discussed that was done for man. Wow. What a wonderful thing to be told when you’re a child. I feel this morning subjected. This could be it, that if I never said another word and you heard it and believed it and really used it, this would be the planting that would spread from us here that tomorrow could not undo for it is magic. The pruning shears of revision. It really is not only the achievement of objectives, but if you do it daily, it will awaken in you the spirit of Jesus, which is continual forgiveness of sin in this teaching, the sinner should always go free. You will never condemn him for when the spirit is awake in you. You will realize in him there is no condemnation, only forgiveness and forgiveness is not as man of the world thinks when he admits the actual execution of his revenge. When we mean by forgiveness, the identification of the other that we would forgive with the ideal that other wants to embody in the world. And so we do to him what we expect or would like the world to do to us. So whatever I myself would like to embody. That is the vision that I must hold for every man that I meet in my world that no man is to be discarded. Every man is to be redeemed and my life is the process whereby that redemption is brought about and I do it by simply identifying the other with the ideal I want to externalize in my world and here he’s saying a wonderful lesson. When you realize the power that we have in our imagination, if you imagine that the people around you are ideal, you’re giving them that ideal. It is a real thing. Now we will go back to the second Genesis. It is said and God placed man in the garden of Eden to dress it and keep it. Now when you read the story, you think it happened thousands of years ago, I’ve come to tell you it is now. You are not in the garden. You are now in the garden of Eden and you think you are shut out or banished. You are in it and the garden is your mind, but you need like every gardener you need pruning sheers for you have slept. As you are told in that second chapter, having slept weeds have appeared in the garden and the weeds are revealing themselves by the conditions and the circumstances of life for your garden is always projecting itself on the screen of space and you can see by looking carefully at your world what you allow to grow in the garden of God, but you have a mission. You have a purpose. It is not to a massive fortune. You can do it if you want to. It’s not to be famous. It is not to be some mighty power, but simply to tend the garden of God. That’s your purpose. You are placed in the garden to dress it and to keep it that only the lovely things grow in the garden of God. Now every man in the world is rooted in you who look out and see the world. Every man is rooted in me. He ends in me as I am rooted in and end in God because he is rooted in me. He cannot bear other than the nature of the route allows. So he is in me and any changes desired in the outer world can be brought about only if I change the source of the thing I see growing in my world. You see yonder fields don’t be surprised when you see sesamin. The sesamin was sesamin. The corn was corn. The silence and the darkness knew so is a man’s fate born, so don’t judge it because you are the source of the thing that you are beholding. Now turn within and prune it by using these pruning sheers of revision. Now this is how we do it. At the end of the day, I review the day. I don’t judge it. I simply review it. I look over the entire day, all the episodes, all the events, all the conversations, all the meetings, and then as I see it clearly in my mind’s eye, I rewrite it. I rewrite it and make it conform to the ideal day. I wish I had experienced. I take scene after scene and rewrite it, revise it and having revised my day. Then in my imagination I re leave that day, the revised day. I relive that day and I do it over and over in my imagination until this seeming imagined state begins to take onto me the tones of reality. It seems that it’s real that I actually did experience it and I have found from my experience that these revised days if really lived will change my tomorrows when I meet people tomorrow that just did that today disappointed me. They will not tomorrow for in me. I have changed the very nature of that being and having changed him. He bears witness tomorrow of the change that took place within me. It is my duty to take his guard, this garden and really make it a garden by daily using the pruning shears of revision. What a wonderful concept. Say you get into a fight with your partner and when you go to bed you imagine that you didn’t get into a fight that everything turned out okay. How many times have you gone, you had a disagreement with somebody woke up the next day and it just carried on. It was in your mind the next day. When we carry grudges, when we don’t forgive people, we bring these to our subconscious. When we go to sleep, we wake up with them and they they feed on us and such a wonderful idea. If we go about this process of revising our day, we don’t carry these angers, these feelings, these emotions our next day. That’s the number one thing. I personally believe there’s metaphysics going on here and that right because it’s only one day, right then is a sweet spot, which we can adjust into a timeline real quick. If we, if we accept our power and the idea of there’s a, the quantum field with multiple probabilities there certainly where we are living right next to that field, that timeline where we didn’t have that argument. So if we in our minds really over, he says over and over, he’s saying right here, redo it over and over until it takes on the tones of reality. So go over it. If you have something happen, just go over and reenact it in your mind until it feels real and then go to bed. So the next time you guys have something crazy like that, you go to bed angry. We had disagreement or something terrible had happened during the day. Go through and revise it. What you’re doing is connecting over into a new timeline, a new script that’s tied to whatever event had happened the day before, not happening and what a way to practice and do that now. I do think there is a power not in, not only in in manifesting metaphysical things that beyond what we’re talking about, but in just how you react and how you experience the world. He says, I know from my experience it will only bring about these objectives and bring about these changes. But the glorious thing is it awakens in you who use it, the spirit of Jesus and you find yourself then not justifying but forgiving and you will realize the freedom and forgiveness are indissolubly linked. You cannot be free and not forgive. What a wonderful line and something I, it might be tattoo worthy. You cannot be free and not forgive for the one that you would bind. And judge and condemn anchors you by your own judgment of him, for he is in you. What a wonderful way to look at forgiveness when, when you’re angry with somebody for a moment, even if it’s a millisecond, just consider this thought. You’re angry with yourself. And so if you’re angry with them, you’re angry with yourself. You cannot be free and not forgive. You are told, forgive and you shall be forgiven. Forgive not. And then you shall not be forgiven. It’s automatic. It can’t be otherwise for the whole Springs from you who behold it. And as you begin to practice it, the very spirit arouses itself within you. And you know that you are. He that others spoke about and thought lived 2000 years ago. So when you realize it, you realize it through actual knowledge. You know it. No argument. You don’t tell others. You know that you are heat. And then you will read the words. In the ninth of Hebrews, he appeared to put it away. He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And you will know you are the one that put away sin by the sacrifice of self and by the sacrifice of self. It’s not being a brave one who throws himself in the line of fire to protect a brother. It doesn’t mean one who gives his body to be burned, one who is nailed on a cross, but the self of a man is the sum total of all that man believes and consents to as true. So that’s the self that is sacrificed. I heard of this lady and she would make some man, a wonderful wife and yet she is unwed. She desires to be the companion of a great noble person, but she is unwed. I heard that that becomes a part of myself. That’s my knowledge. I must sacrifice that self, that that aspect of my being happy. That aspect of my being be as happy as I am and those in my world are for. That’s the self I must sacrifice and put away sin for sin to the mystic means missing the Mark. It doesn’t mean the violation of certain codes unless of course you have a Mark and the violation fell short, but sin to the mystic is simply having an aim in life and failing to realize it. Again, as mentioned in other lectures, Neville Goddard’s concept of sin is simply not using your, your ability, your human imagination, your connection to human imagination and failing to realize it. So when you miss the Mark, you have sinned. So he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And knowing that himself is only all that he can sense to all that he accepts, all that he believes to be true, then what I’m believing concerning that one, he is unemployed and he can’t find a job. I’m believing it now put away that sin where he is missing his Mark. And then by the putting away of the sin, I do not only by the sacrifice of myself and myself is that so now I revise. I can’t say, well, I will no longer believe he is unemployed. I believe he’s employed. I do it by the pruning shears of revision. I bring him before my mind’s eye and I congratulate him on his good fortune because he is now gainfully employed. I allow him to accept my congratulations because I do not see a man unemployed. I see him, I see him employed and he knows he is in my mind’s eye for in that state, I have pruned him from the unemployed state and once more reshaped the branch that grows in the garden of God. Tomorrow people will see him as they could not have seen him before. The pruning that took place within me and he will be gainfully employed. That one is unwell. You prune that branch. You don’t accept one thing in the world as final unless it confirms to the ideal you want to realize in the world, but you do it daily. If you do not prune it daily, you will get out of the habit and then weeds will grow. So it’s interesting he’s saying, don’t go back and try to revise the year or revise something that happened two years ago. This particular practice is effective if done every single day because the weeds will grow. It’s such a wonderful idea. You do have weeds grow and so let’s commit ourselves to doing some revision. I’ll try to create a revision meditation. Every man who really is a gardener who calls himself a gardener, a gardener in the garden of God for every day is the opportunity to really prune the tree. This wonderful tree, and so everyone that you meet is a branch rooted in the vine that you are and you are that special tree in the garden of God, a tree bearing life, a tree bearing fruit for the food of the nations. You are that one. If you take me seriously today, tonight, do not let the sun descend upon any vexation of the day. Just look at it. Don’t deny it. Don’t duck it. Look at it that you may prune it and then reshape it. Take the conversations with your friends today, where they pleasant, where they arguments, no matter what it is, where they negative, then rewrite the script and just imagine the conversation to have taken place that now you are rewriting for the first time and it will take place for everything in your world that you behold though it appears without. It is within in your imagination. And this wonderful imagination of yours is Christ Jesus. Imagination is the actual habituation of every created thing. No matter what you see in the world, it Springs from your imagination. So that’s where you go. That’s the workshop, the garden of God, and now you have a mission. You have a purpose in life. It’s a noble purpose because you’ve been selected to really become the chief gardener in the garden of God and in the garden you must have pruning shears and pruning shears is revision. You simply revise and as you revise the day, you repeal the day for the day is not slipping into the past. It does not recede as people think. It is always advancing into the future to confront you either pruned or in some strange, we’d like state. So it’s entirely up to us. I hope that every man and woman here today will take me seriously and start this day, pruning your garden, pruning your mind. I know before I leave this city in a matter of two weeks that you will be able to tell me of the new things that spring in your world or that spring from the prune tree. That is your own lovely imagination. You try it then you will know that what Blake meant when he said in heaven, the only art of living is forgetting and forgiving. The only art of living is complete forgetfulness by putting something in its place. No vacuum, but putting something in its place. So you’re not going to forget something. You’re going to remember something different. So when you read these strange stories that you read in the daily press, you simply ignore them. They mean nothing. Men who are calling themselves leaders, shepherds of the flock, they excommunicate not just one religion. All religions. The leaders take it upon themselves to excommunicate. Not knowing. Nothing is to be discarded, not a thing in the world can you discard for it is forever, but it can be pruned and made to conform to the ideal image. The man who will not revise his day either does not know it or he has lost the vision of that life into the likeness of that which it is the true labor of the spirit of Jesus that transformed this life so you don’t discard them. In the current issue of time magazine, there’s an that noble soul who is known to us as spinosa Baruch de spinosa, who has given so much of the world of philosophy so much. Everyone has been enriched because he walked the earth and here 300 years later, the ex premiere of Israel, Ben Gurion has asked the leading rabbis today to rescind that excommunication of 300 years ago, and they tell his noble soul today that they cannot rescind the works of their forefathers, that the curse remains forever and you should read that silly, silly curse as it’s printed in the current issue of time magazine. They call upon all the angels to curse him as though angels would curse. They call upon everything to blast him. You could not walk within four cubits of the man’s shadow. No one should talk to him. No one should show him kindness. No one should write him and never read anything he has ever to say. And that’s 300 years go. The rabbis who cursed him have long been forgotten. And if they do live, they only live by reason of their curse. And no one knows really who really they really are. But you can’t forget it. If you read in this world the works of spinosa, everyone in this audience possibly has used one of his phrases. Did you know it was he who said nature abhors a vacuum? Now you use it. I use it, but what is the source of it? It was spinosa for here was the giant of a mind. That 300 years, little minds who think they’re leading the flock, they call themselves shepherds. They should go back and read. Well, the book of Jeremiah, you shepherds who spoil my binds and you have come into my garden and you have taken my vines. Now it bears no grape and it bears no leaf and the garden of Jerusalem now has become a, we’d read it in Jeremiah. Now he how he cries out because shepherds who call them shelf shepherds are blind leaders of the blind. I have not read spinosa. I need to read spinosa. Now of course, any reference like this is always going to be interesting. If you have read spinosa throw that in the comments. I’m wondering if there’s any relation to some of his material. You take me this morning at my word, you owe me nothing. It costs you not a thing to come here this morning. You come here, you give me your time and I give you my time, but you go out and try it and start this day pruning that wonderful imagination of yours. Do you know that someone, do you know someone that is evil? Stop knowing it by bringing him before your mind’s eye and carry on with him the most wonderful conversation in the world with a tender spirit, a loving spirit, and believe in the reality of this communion. Because if you really do it, you are entering the kingdom of heaven for you. Enter heaven by a loving, knowing communion with a friend, so make him a friend. If he is a lovely one, no matter what he is, you can prune him. Then as you prune him, you are doing the work which you were sent to do for man and you are that man. You are placed this day in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Don’t let it continue growing weeds in your world. You are absolutely responsible for every being you meet in this world. That’s your responsibility. Just like the teacher we told you of who took this little child that was just about to be expelled. No, the child is not expelled because she heard what you are hearing this morning. So she brought before her mind’s eye, the child that the principal, the psychiatrist and all the faculty had agreed unanimously to expel her on her 16th birthday for she was rude, she was crude, she was unethical and she went home on a Sunday night and brought that child before her mind’s eye and communed with her and saw in her attender child, a considerate child, a loving child. The next day, Monday in class, she expressed all the kindness of that revision of the night before and 10 days later when it was seen and witnessed by all the faculty and the psychiatrist. Another meeting was called and they repealed their verdict of 10 days before and the child is not expelled. She still sits in the George Washington high school in New York city, which is considered an excellent school and so there she is with no black marks against her because one teacher sat in the audience as you are here, and she believed what I hope everyone here will believe and she redeemed a branch of her own tree. She didn’t realize the child was herself. She saw up to that very moment, all the children that she taught in pure objectivity, blind man sees the world objective to himself, something detached from himself. When man begins to awake, he sees everything subjectively related. Everything he meets is part of himself. And what he does not now understand still he knows that it is related by affinity to some as yet unrealized force in his own being. So he doesn’t discard it. He knows his life is the process by which he will redeem it and he redeems it by using the pruning shears of revision. Do you know someone in your life that you can apply this to give it a shot? I was just thinking maybe we should try this with politicians. Maybe we should try the pruning shears of revision with politicians that you don’t particularly like. And let’s see if we do this. Maybe as a group we can start to see a change in these leaders. So I feel that it, if after these 50 years of walking this earth that this is what that lady saw when I saw when I was, but seven, I could really close the eye on three dimensions at any moment knowing that you will not disprove it. You may never use them, but you will never disprove this art of revision and any man who will try it will prove it to his own satisfaction, that he can rise beyond the wildest dream of men and rising. He awakens the spirit of forgiveness. He will rise in the early stages in the successful venture. He will increase his income. He will do all these things, B, but he will realize after a little while, that wasn’t the purpose. There were only toys to tickle him, toys to amuse him until he awoke within himself, the spirit of Jesus. Then he sees an entirely different mission, not the amassing of wealth, but the redeeming of society, the redeeming of every man in the world. He comes to do his father’s will and we are told in the sixth chapter of John, this is my father’s will, that all that of all that he has given me, I should not, Luke should lose nothing, but I should raise it up again. I’ll try that again. This is my father’s will that of all that he has given me, I should lose nothing, but I should raise it up again. Lose nothing. No, you don’t excommunicate you don’t rip out. You simply raise it up again. And as you raise it up, you raise yourself up and the journey is forever. You’re moving up an infinite vertical line in your own wonderful imagination and you only move up by lifting others up. Blind men think you can save themselves and because they think they can save themselves and discard the rest. The blind man also said this hundreds of years ago. He saved as he saved others himself. He cannot save. I say to you that it’s a false statement. It was put into the mouth of the Pharisee, put into the mouth of the Sanhedrin, the leaders who thought that there were leaders, but I will tell you a man saves himself by and only by the saving of his fellow man. There is no other way of saving self other than saving the real self. Every man is rooted in you who observes men and so don’t discard. Raise them up. Prune the tree and become the real gardener in the garden of God. Take anything you have a child. Today we took all the requests, the sporting, there were dozens and dozens of requests this morning. Everyone must be answered. None must be discarded. Don’t say one is impossible. There is nothing impossible to your imagination and your imagination is Christ Jesus with him. All things are possible. Use him, stir him, wake him from his sleep. He has been sleeping through the centuries because he has slept. He has dreamed into being all these strange ms shaped States for the world only bears witness of the use or misuse of imagination as we are told, he is the only thing in the world what he is the only thing in the world. Your imagination for it is the habitation of every created thing. And by it all things are made and without it is nothing made that is made. So use it wisely. Use it lovingly and anytime you use your imagination lovingly on behalf of another, you are at that moment literally mediating God to man. Imagination is the redemptive power of the world and you are actually mediating God to man by using it in a loving, wonderful way. So what Neville has said in this lecture is, is very powerful. There is something that happens when you choose to use this power lovingly. When you love lovingly use your imagination on the behalf of another, you begin to mediate God to man. I know a lot of people that listen to my podcast don’t believe in God. That’s fine. My concept of God that and the concept that is talking about it may be a little different than what you were taught when you were younger. You can change the word sometimes the word can be distracting. I took a long time to get to novel because it was triggering for me at the beginning cause I was resisting anything that sounded biblical. I wasn’t stopping for a second, listening to the message. And then once I came back to it and started listening to the message, I was like, Whoa, okay, this is way different than than what I expected. And it opened up the Bible to me in a different way. I have, I don’t know why I was triggered and maybe the reasons I was triggered were wrong and I am. I’m the one that will tell you that I do not know. I am a student and always a student. And in that process I becoming teacher only because I continue to learn and I’m telling you the things I’m learning along the way. So I will definitely, sometime in the near future, lots of episodes coming. I will create a revision meditation. Something that we can do every night before we go to sleep, but I have one that’s that that does a little bit of that. So check out that meditation and how on how to feel the dream from the wish fulfilled. It’s a sleep meditation, it’s simple and it allows you to go through that process. I think something like that works and you don’t need a meditation. You can do it every night and you don’t even have to do it while you’re sleeping. You can continually revise. I just think that in general, if you are, have some kind of plan that you’re using when you, when you go to sleep, it’s good to go through your day anyway because one thing that happens by going through your day is that you eliminate that stuff from your dreams and you give yourself a blank canvas. A lot of times when we go to sleep, we have a bunch of stuff happened in the day and if you just ignore it, you’re going to dream about that stuff and then you’re going to be locked into the, the dream about that day every night. So one of the powerful things about the revision technique is not the manifestation of, of anything. It’s the clearing out of your day so that when you go to sleep, you’re in a fresh neutral state and you can go back to imagination. How is your process going in imagination? Have any of these Neville lectures that I’ve brought into the reality revolution fold helps you. I would love to hear your perspective and as I say, if you have any lectures that you want me to go over, throw one out at me, I will give it a shot. I am definitely going to go over many of these. I learned something every single time. Uh, their treasure troves and there’s lots of places online that you can see more of these lectures and it’s always fun for all episodes of the reality revolution. You can find pre-coaching go to advanced success and you can acquire there. If you have any questions, leave them on the comments on this particular video or podcast and I will try to answer them. It’s always a blessing to go on these journeys with you
