You might wonder if your desires ever hurt someone’s feelings, or if they are against their free will. You fear to manipulate people, or wonder who wins when two people want the same thing. Some of you are afraid to interfere with other people’s lives, or wonder if others can imagine for you, and have power over your life with their desires and intentions. 

Free will does not matter and it is no issue to be worried about. The whole vast world is yourself pushed out, said Neville Goddard, and it means, people act, feel and think according to your assumptions. They play the role you give them — they always did, even before you knew about it. 

The meaning of others in my world

I have fully accepted that people are me pushed out. It does not make me feel lonely and I don’t treat people like meaningless puppets. With the understanding of who I really am, I understood that others are a part of myself. When I truly love myself, I cannot treat others — an extension of my own being — different from myself. When I see, that I am the source of them, I feel nothing but love.

I understand that people act the way I assume them to be. At the same time, I do believe that they have their own lives in their own world. To me, the understanding of “Everyone is you pushed out”, and the uniqueness of other people, are not mutually exclusive. Separation is an illusion. Still I can appreciate and love others uniqueness during this experience of life itself.

Every loved one in my life is a manifestation I have for life itself, a manifestation of the love I AM.

There is no one to ask for permission but yourself

I love myself so much, that I fully take responsibility for my life — because I understand who I really am. I care for myself, and I understand that I am the only one that makes decisions in my life, and to ask for permission.

I see life to experience the Law as a human being. I am here to experience a life I desire, while being human. So, I wouldn’t do myself any favor by settling for less than I want, nor does it help others to take less or to give up things.

In a world of endless abundance, a sacrifice for others or any outside force is an illusion, and so is thievery. Both comes from the delusion of lack and separation.

The misconception of manipulation, influence and seduction

You do not have to be concerned about influencing others, as they are not the cause – your imaginal act is! Those who have a billion dollars are not causing your world. You and you alone are doing it, as your imaginal acts influence people. Everyone is yourself pushed out, so when you imagine, you are influencing yourself!

Neville Goddard ~ What are you doing?

Methods like the “whispering technique”, “pussy-whip” or “remote seduction”, are names for something you do all the time, naturally and perfectly.

No imaginal scene and no affirmation you use manipulates others. You only change your own assumption about them. When you whisper to someone, you actually whisper to yourself. When you use remote seduction, you only seduce yourself.

It is the repetition of these tools that changes your assumption about yourself in relation to others. The imaginal act makes you believe in its truth, and you can finally experience now, what it is that you desire.

And you are already a master!

In fact, you are always doing these things. It is the most natural thing in your world — this is the Law. The source for every relationship in your life, with friends, family members, lovers and even strangers, are your own assumptions. Whether you were aware of it or not.

You always have mental conversations with yourself and others. You argue with them or have a conversation full of love — you whisper, seduce and manipulate all the time, but only yourself. You see them in front of your eyes, and they might reject or embrace you — depending on your beliefs, your state and your self-concept. And others have no choice but to act that way.

The way you see yourself changes the way you imagine or talk about others. When you feel insecure and unloved, you might argue a lot with others. You see them rejecting you, being unforgiving and far away from you.

When you see yourself as a beloved person, wanted and secure, the images and the affirmations will change. You easily imagine a lovely talk with a friend, a wonderful day with a family member and some sensual time with your lover.  

The Golden Rule – There is no reason to accept harm

A manifestation of a reconciliation happens the same way as you manifested the separation. Both were all about you and the beliefs you hold within yourself. If you believe that your actions manipulates others – the outside world makes sure you will be right. Replace these beliefs with new ones, and dare to believe that whatever you want is what others want as well.

If I believe that I am injured or that others are against me, I have conjured them in my world, and they have to be against me. If I fully believe that all are working towards the fulfillment of my good, they have to work towards the fulfillment of my good. I don’t ask them. I don’t compel them. I simply do it only within myself, and the whole vast world exists within me. Therefore, it is myself “pushed out.” It’s objectified. I don’t have to change affairs; I only change it within myself, and then every one, though I know him or not by name, – it doesn’t really matter, – it’s myself “pushed out.”

Neville Goddard ~ The Secret of Imagining

If any of your manifestation techniques would be wrong because it affects others — then everything you assume about them would be, as well — because you can’t assume nothing. There is always something you accept as true about them.

In a world of yourself pushed out, you cannot exclude other people. But you can embrace them. You can make it all part of your wonderful experience.

This warning was given to man in the famous Golden Rule – Do unto others that which you would have them do unto you. You may desire something for yourself or you may desire for another. If your desire concerns another make sure that the thing desired is acceptable to that other. The reason for this warning is that your consciousness is God, the giver of all gifts.

Neville Goddard ~ Freedom For All

I truly believe, the wish of revenge, harm and pitfall for others is a lack of clarity. When you’ve fully accepted that people are only you pushed out, and their act towards you was because of your assumptions, there is no desire to accuse others, nor oneself. And when you love and accept yourself unconditionally, you will do the same for others, who are never separate from you.

And then, harming others, also unconsciously, is only harming oneself. Again, the disunion is an illusion.

The embodiment of the Golden Rule comes naturally with the understanding of who you really are. When abundance and possibilities are endless, when separation and lack are only illusions, there is no motive anymore to imagine harm, nor to accept harm for others. There is no more competition, no blame and no reason to believe that your desire means any disadvantage for others.

I once had a funny conversation with a friend of my partner about the Law and manifestation. I told her, I manifested him only with my decision that he is mine. When she asked him, sitting next to us, how it feels to be manipulated like this, he laughed and said: “Ahh, to me, it was my free will.“.

I treat my desires as the best that can happen for everyone involved. This is how I embrace others in my life being me pushed out, while still living the life I desire. There is no sacrifice, no harm and no lack, but endless love.

    Superb article as always. To me getting to know Neville Goddard’s teaching and starting to follow other students of his, really changed my life forever. I’ve known about manifestation, the law of attraction, you name it… for well over a decade now, and I have even based my coaching business on it, but this teaching was my missing link. I have now and forever closed the gap that still existed in me in regards to manifestation.

    “I treat my desires as the best that can happen for everyone involved.”

    This makes total sense because as I AM God, then I want what is best for everyone in my world. My desires are then the best for everyone involved because I trust in my I AMness that I AM love. I AM abundance. I AM freedom and joy. Therefore, what I want is what everyone else wants and what is best for everyone in my world.

    Thank you for this article! Totally clicked!!

    Hey that was a great post! I can’t seem to understand how to make this work at a practical level. I am trying to manifest a relationship with someone specific and they have blatantly asked me to move on. I can’t imagine my life without her, please help!

    Beautiful article ! Thank you for sharing. I was wondering and if you can give me an explanation ? It happen in the past that I assume someone was a certain way. Then I realized my assumptions were wrong. But I didn’t change my assomptions internally. It just happen the person was not what I thought ! Why ?

    ok then I have a question that has been bothering me. Do the assumptions of others about me influence my actions and thoughts? for example: my mom has the assumption about me that I am lazy… am i then going to be lazy or does it only work the other way?

    Im new here and I love all the articles, its so educational and inspiring! I have listened to 3 of Nevilles books so far.. one thing I cant wrap my head around is – in my reality, say, I want to be with my sp and im going to manifest him back, and I will because I assume so, I am love, so doesn’t it matter at all that he doesn’t want to be with me? Do I simply ‘attract’ another version of him, and the one who left me keeps being single and/or meet someone other than me in HIS reality? I hope I make sense here 🙂 Thanks!

    Is Neville implying that another can reject your assumption of them? When he says the giver can reject the gift… Just curious.

    I was having issues with the free-will side of manifestation and “randomly” came across this article yesterday. This is absolutely enlightening, all is well. Thanks for the exceptional content and quality of information that we can find on your website. Take care!
