The Power of Awareness

The Power of Awareness - Neville Goddard An empowering and transformative book written in the early 1950’s with truths that are just as powerful today as they were then.

The main premise put forth by Neville Goddard is that our thoughts create our reality. More specifically, by focusing our attention on our imagination and seeing ourselves as we wish to be, rather than how we are, we put into motion forces that will manifest our intention, “If you will not imagine yourself as other than what you are, then you remain as you are,…”

Neville goes on to assert that the more focused we are, the more quickly and the more easily our imagination manifests into physical reality, “Your attention must be developed, controlled, and concentrated in order to change your concept of yourself successfully and thereby change your future. Imagination is able to do anything, but only according to the internal direction of your attention.”

For those thinking that this concept might sound familiar, it’s likely because the same underlying process has been the topic of numerous books and several movies over the last decade - The Secret and What the Bleep being two of them.

One final point I would like to make is that Neville seems to have been very well versed in Biblical scriptures and my knowledge in this areas is essentially non-existent; therefore, the numerous Biblical interpretations Neville makes are unfamiliar to me and, while they seem to be accurate, I can’t speak to how the more devout religious reader will accept his interpretations.
