Changing States / Faith & Persistence / Living In The End

It Is Not About Your Actions – It Is About Your State

Learning about the Law comes with many tools and techniques. When you understand who you really are and that the Law works all the time without you being even aware of it, you’ll see, that you’ve manifested your whole life before and without using any particular tool. This is why we keep saying Neville’s teachings are a lifestyle. You are supposed to live the wonderful life you desire without effort or a stressful daily routine.

We don’t want you to be busy manifesting your dream life – we want you to enjoy your desires right now.

Still, you might wonder what you should do next, if there is any action required, if you can speed up or slow down the process, how to fill the time in between and if your past actions messed things up already.

Your actions do not matter, only your state does

Any actions follow your state, they always did. Impulses, intuition and gut feelings all come from your state. I am sure you’ve already observed how your gut feeling can change in days or hours. What feels right in one moment, feels wrong after you’ve slept over it, or after you discussed a topic with a friend. Your intuition changes with your beliefs and assumptions, and so do your impulses.

The illusion of the free will to do is but ignorance of the law of assumption upon which all action is based. Everything happens automatically. All that befalls you, all that is done by you – happens.

Neville Goddard The Power of Awareness

As a person – and being in the state – of not having yet a desire, you might feel the urge to do something. You want to do it right, you might feel restless and impatient. Sometimes there is that underneath fear that can lead to destructive impulses. You might feel like you have no choice but to behave like that – it can be called inspired action, but from an undesired state.

Same goes for the person who is in the state of wish fulfilled, a person, who is already who they want to be, no matter if it manifested in the world of Caesar already or not. This person has no actions out of impatience. There is no bad gut feeling, since there is no reason to fear anything. This person is aware of who they really are and the abundance within. Most likely their actions show how much this person enjoys life and having fun with being already who they want to be, and they follow their impulses to do whatever feels good. This person also has inspired actions, but they come from a different state.

Your actions indicate your state

Observe your actions to understand what beliefs and what ideas you hold about yourself and others. Your actions reflect who you are right now and your state.

To understand the law of assumption, to be convinced of its truth, means getting rid of all the illusions about free will to act. Free will actually means freedom to select any idea you desire.

Neville Goddard – The Power of Awareness

Looking for more success stories, new tools and techniques, signs, or evidences are actions coming from a state of not having your desire yet. Any action to make something happen is not living in the end. Waiting impatiently for the world of Caesar to change shows your true assumption here – that your desire is not here yet. You can’t live in the wish fulfilled and feel the urge to make it happen at the same time.

Going through your day in happy anticipation, with images of a wonderful life in front of you, doing nothing but to enjoy life with family, friends, lovers, work and your passions, and no need for techniques – because you prefer to spend your time to enjoy yourself and not to worry about anything outside – shows how much you’ve accepted your desires as a present fact.

The less you worry to make things happen, the more you can enjoy your desires right now.

So, don’t adjust your actions, but your state – and your actions will change on their own.

Inspired action, intuition and gut feeling

As you learn about the Law, you will come across the term inspired action. People might tell you not to do anything until you feel inspired to act – and only then it will be right to act at all. You might wonder if that idea you had few minutes ago is that kind of inspiration people keep talking about or if you should wait.

An inspired action is something you don’t think about much at all. You simply do them, there is no hesitation and no doubt. Again, it is never about your actions, anyway. All your actions – inspired actions included, are based on your state.

People might tell you to follow your intuition and your gut feelings. A pain in your stomach or tickling butterflies. Always ask yourself what beliefs you hold, that gives you these feelings and how they change with new beliefs and information you get.

There was a time in my life, before knowing about the Law, when I was very fearful and doubtful in my life. I always had that bad feeling in my stomach, and I was sure something bad will happen or things won’t have a happy ending. And so it happened and I thought my feelings and intuition predicted what will happen. I always said: I knew it! I felt it before.

Now I understand how my assumptions and beliefs about the situation built up that bad feeling in the first place and then manifested in that feared scenario. My assumptions hardened into fact.

Since I know who I really am and how the world reflects my beliefs, these bad gut feelings disappeared completely. There is no bad intuition anymore. When you are the creator of your life, in a world of endless abundance, you will see there is no reason to fear anything.

Now I enjoy that blissful tickling, the knowing something good is about to happen – because it always does.

If you had this good and beautiful feeling, the positive intuition your whole life – keep it! This is how you created all the beautiful things in your life.

You can’t do it wrong – Creation is finished

Basically, thinking any action affects your manifestation is not living in the end. You might worry about, if the next move or step towards your manifestation is right or wrong.

If you catch yourself with these thoughts, remember, that creation is finished. Not because of what you do, but because of who you are. All your desires are meant to be yours – no matter what you are doing or not doing.

We will not have to lift a finger to make it so, for it is already so. It was always so.

Neville Goddard – No one to change but self

There is nothing you can do, anyway. Your desires manifest because of your state, not because of your actions.

You can’t do it wrong and none of your actions undo a manifestation. Creation is always finished, there is no exception.

Don’t worry here, there really is no reason. Your desire is a done deal, a promise. It is irreversible and unstoppable.

Actions in relationships – The urge to prove your value

When it comes to relationships, people show the most fear of actions. While manifesting or improving a relationship, you might find yourself struggling with texting or no contact. You ask yourself if it is okay to initiate a conversation, a date or if you need a sign first, or let the person run after you. You might also wonder if any of your actions messed up a current manifestation process.

Now you know, all of these thoughts and actions show your current state and self concept. All of this comes from a person, who does not live their desire as a done deal.

When you already live your ideal of a beloved and wanted person, you don’t need anyone to run after you, you don’t need that kind of proof to feel valuable. When you feel loved and secure right now, you know, that none of your actions will lower your value. You can initiate a conversation or a date just as you like, there is no need to make yourself rare. And so you also don’t have to run after others. You are always adored.

None of your actions shapes your value. Nothing but you matters here. You are already worthy of everything you want, and you have always been. You are love. And so, none of your actions will ever lower your value. No matter what happens or what you do, you are still worthy of everything, unconditionally.

Live the best version of yourself, live as if you are the most loved and adored person, without anyone else telling you so, and you will be free.

Dare to live like the Goddess or God you are and feel the relief that comes from it. Make yourself this gift to live in faith and always act as if nothing can go wrong. Let all your actions come from a place of joy and happiness. It is the best act of self-love you can do for yourself.

    Like all other articles here, this one is compelling too in its content…I just have one clarification though from my understanding of how the Law works. Just stating you don’t have to do anything to realize your desires may mislead the readers. Although we don’t have any “physical” activities to do since creation is finished and our desires are ours already, we have “mental”activities that MUST to be diligently done and these are listed at the end of the article. I think, mental activities like being in the desired state and watching ones mental diet are PARAMOUNT for manisfesting a dream world for oneself.

      If you truly accept your desire as a fact, there really is nothing more to do here. Your mental conversations follow your state, as well. Like your actions, your running thoughts indicate your state and what you accept as true.

      What we offer here is Neville’s main message: To accept, your imagination is God, so you are always in the state of the wish fulfilled, not only when you have a specific desire. Your imagination is God – there is reason to have any negative thought anymore – it simply makes no sense.

      All the issues with your mental activities, techniques and questions about actions will resolve itself. Then there is no need to watch your mental diet, because you know at every moment, you are safe, secure and loved.

        Same with dream body?? No exercise/diet required? Just know what measurements/shape you are and you will be that?

    Thanks for an amazing article. Could you please help me understand more on how to get into specific state. Also, how should I make sure I’m in correct state.

    Thanks for clarifying Nicole…Much appreciated…In short, ones mental state is an effortless extension of ones assumptions. I hope I am right in concluding this. Thanks again.

    Okay I have a question that doesn’t directly relate to the article. I understand that we shouldn’t worry about time when manifesting things but considering that I’ve manifested not only small stuff but big stuff with timeframes attached, why is it such a bad thing to do it? I believe it’s because it could be a huge disappointment to someone who had something they really want NOW and it doesn’t come. But I’ve learned that I can have what I want when I want it if it’s believable to me. I just want to know if you or anyone knows why it’s such a bad thing to attach any timeframe even though we can. At least in my experience I can and I get it. Thank you

      It is not a bad thing to attach a timeframe, it is totally up to you and what makes you happy. What happens often is, that while putting a timeframe to it, people basically assume what they want is still not here. But when you are absolutely sure about its fulfillment, it is fine. There is only dissapointment if you settle for dissapointment. When you understand, what Neville is actually telling you, that your imagination is God, you can’t miss any experience outside, since everything is already happening.

    Nicole you are such a beautiful being. Thank you so much for sharing the truth that Neville teaches in the way that you do. I just discovered this awesome website yesterday. Neville is my favorite author and mentor. Every article on this site has resonated deeply with me and I have learned new ways of being and relaxing into truth of who I am and how life works. About three months ago, the thought popped into my physical awareness that I am really God and everything is already mine. I have known that God is my awareness of being (I AM) and exists in me as my imagination for a long while, but this truth has now taken root and burned off a lot of old beliefs that prevented me from fully seeing and experiencing it consciously on a daily basis. You really hit the nail on the head here. I am God occupying a state of being and everything naturally and effortlessly unfolds FROM the state that I occupy. I now notice what state I am occupying by observing my thoughts, feelings, beliefs, assumptions, moods and attitudes. If I like my state I will enjoy it to the max. If I don’t like my current state, I will get still and deliberately shift out of it using my imagination to go and live in a new end (a new state of being). It truly is all about the state of being that I either consciously or unconsciously put I AM/myself into. Thank you for this AMAZING article. <3
