Your True Self- God, Universe, consciousness, whatever you decide to call it, is not something to strive for, to get, or to figure out how to become this Self. Accepting who you really are- God- is much more than just thinking positively about your desires, or knowing that you are the creator of it all. It is not confined to a specific state or feeling. Being God is not a state. Remembering you are God is a state, but still you are simply God in a state of remembering who you really are. You are God experiencing different states, and you can never not be God. It is not a technique or a tool- it is your True Self.

It was who you were before learning about conscious creation, and it will be who you really are for eternity. It is unescapable, whether you cry, throw a tantrum, feel anxious, etc. It is not something you feel. Feeling confident and knowing you are God, is a state. It is a really lovely state to be in, but you do not always have to feel like this to be God, because you are God no matter what. This is important to remember, because it is easy to think that because you are not feeling like this, that you must not be God, or you are not doing it right. It isn’t an action to take, but a realization to be made. It isn’t something you become through a step by step process, it is an acceptance of who you already are.

An acceptance of who you really are, can be done whether you believe in this Truth or not, whether you feel it, or know it, or not. Do not wait to finally feel like God, and think that this is the only way to manifest your desires. The finite human mind cannot comprehend this amazing power we possess, but that is okay, because it is not our job to figure out how to accept this or believe in being God.

This first principle is: “Be still and know that I am God.” No matter what happens turn within and be still. Know that your awareness is God and that all things are possible to you. Test yourself and you will prove this statement in the testing; then you will be free from your former limitations of belief. No matter what is happening on the outside turn to the first principle. Start by being still, then claiming: “I am God.” Ask yourself: “Is this true?” You will never know the truth until you test it.

Neville Goddard

Be Still And Know

It is the first principal for a reason. Because it sets the foundation upon which you manifest your desires effortlessly. You see, many people are doing this backwards. They are trying to manifest their desires and trying to understand reality from a foundation that is cluttered with old ideas and concepts. But that’s all that they are, just concepts. And as you know now, these concepts aren’t real.

If you can see through the realness of these concepts, and stop falling for the illusion of them, your foundation will not be cluttered with anything that can possibly ever stop your desires from manifesting.

Stop trying to manifest your desires, and start accepting that you ARE your desires. How to accept that you are your desires? Stop accepting all of the concepts and fears that pop up and tell you otherwise. There is no complicated process. Your True Self does not deal with life through conflict, force or hard work. If you ever find yourself overthinking and feeling upset or worried, be free from that feeling, knowing it is perfectly okay to feel this way right now. In fact, this is normal! It is what Neville refers to as “dying to the old man”.

When you know this is normal, you can have off moments and not attach yourself to it, and still manifest what you desire. It’s what we did before. When we were upset or angry, before knowing about the Law, we did not ponder over whether it would ruin our bank balance the next day, or our relationships. We actually were detached from it- by not caring at all. But now, some people become too attached to these emotions, and assume it’s an obstacle or horrible thing that will mess up the process. You may think you are doing something wrong.

I am not telling you to “just know” or to “just believe”, but more-so to not force yourself to know or believe, because this is still trying to do something. Don’t try to force yourself to have faith, to shift into a state, to feel the feeling, to visualize or say affirmations. Let yourself be- you are a human being, not a human doing. 

Letting yourself be, is what will dissolve the illusion of reality, such as your fears. And when you let yourself be, peace and love can actually reveal itself. Faith and belief will come on its own, that state will come on its own, being in the wish fulfilled, will come on its own. And this is the foundation you want, to manifest your desires easily and effortlessly.

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 

Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 

Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 

For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:25-33 (KJV)

Some are always trying to figure it out, trying to fix something, worrying, trying to figure out the answers to a specific question, etc. You do not have to do anything. You do not have to fix or change anything, you simply be. You do not have to worry about implementing anything, or doing anything. Being does not mean you stop thinking or feeling, it means you stop identifying, analyzing or judging. Stop fighting with your self. Answers come on their own when we stop trying to figure things out, and they can come quicker too!

Do you not trust in that greater power that our human ego cannot possibly fathom? And how lovely is it that we are this greater power, every essence of it.

The need for control goes away completely, because you realize you don’t have to control anything. Needing to control and fix things, stems from thinking that the 3D shadow world is set in stone, and then you need to do something about it. But when you step into love and just be (even if you feel anxious or have fears and questions), the 3D world conforms to you, with ease, and then all of the answers to your questions will come to you easily, and your fears will dissolve on its own.

Fear and love can’t exist simultaneously, at the same time. Dissolve the fear with the love of who you are, by just observing and being. We have to trust and allow that the power we cannot fully comprehend, is taking care of everything on its own accord.

Trust that because you have a desire, that already means it’s something very simple to manifest. If your desires are from God, and God is love, then why would it be something complicated and hard?

Optical Illusion

To see from the eyes of God, is to see through the illusion of everything. When coming into this new way of looking at life, you have to see everything through a different perspective. Perception is important.

I no longer needed to control or struggle against things. The very acceptance of everything being perfect as it is, looking at it from that perspective, rather than a fearful one, automatically brings peace and harmony to every situation. It automatically conforms to your desires, without you lifting a finger.

Don’t fall for the illusion of what appears to be bad. When we fall for the illusion of this shadow world, we tend to abide by the rules of this shadow world, and care more about it. Things such as time, distance, age, etc. But when you open your heart to who you really are, and let your True Self break through all of these illusions you have accepted, these illusions will seem nonsensical to you. It is true freedom. It is Love.

I know it is strange to think, that by just being present and going with the flow, that your desires can manifest naturally. That you do not need to work so hard at yourself, or manipulate or force anything. Bliss and happiness comes on its own accord. Your self concept changes on its own. As a matter of fact, nothing is actually changing. The Truth of your desires and of who you really are, is just getting a chance to be front and center on this stage we call life. To me, this is the true meaning of allowing.

There are many ways you can allow. If you want to do techniques, fine. But I urge you to do them from a place of peace and of knowing who you really are, or at least accepting that your desire is a promise and that nothing or no one can take it away from you. I love journaling, visualizing and meditating. These things make me happy. I do them from a place of knowing my desires are going to manifest no matter what. Sometimes I just declare something and then watch videos, and the desires manifest in a few hours. I do whatever I please, and whatever makes me happy that day, all from a place of Love.

This is how I like to live my life and manifest my desires. No force or effort is required. If I feel down, I let it pass through me and I do not identify with them. They are just feelings and emotions that are arising to be released. They are not out to get you or harm you.

There are never any problems or any issues. I mean this literally, when I say this. What we humans think are problems and issues, our True Self already knows this is working out perfectly as it is, for the fulfillment of our desires. I recommend you do not depend too much on the finite human mind. The mind and body are also just illusions, and when we identify with it too much, we conceive of problems and issues, and we feel pain and suffering. It just doesn’t see a way sometimes.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,
declares the Lord.

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9

How wonderful is it to know, that although sometimes we cannot conceive of a way something will manifest, that, that is actually perfectly normal and okay, because there is always a way. Trust your desires- they are God given.

    Brilliant! I know that I am really God and Patty is my physical avatar. When I sit in my True Being, all of the beliefs and programs in my subconscious mind dissolve away naturally because the REAL me (God) is above all of it and knows that they are just illusions…current scripts or states of being that I can change. I can watch the scenes in my life movie play out without being affected by them because I know I can consciously change states of being. From the Observer position of God, I can clearly see this Truth. It is only when I am engrossed in the physical self and temporarily forget that I am really God that my world gets a little out of whack. Then I remember who I really am and all is well again. I love all of your articles because they really get to the heart of what Neville teaches. Thank you!

      Patty, The Law continues to delight me with its ways… I’ve manifested you back into my life… I’ve been looking for you on Joseph’s videos but I can’t seem to find you ever… And then I thought to myself that it would be so nice to find you again… Lo and Behold!!

      I’m just so happy to see you again!! I hope the book writing is going well!! Much love!

    But what about the current reality? How do we consider that as an illusion especially eg if you’re trying to manifest health in a person, and that person is suffering and you don’t see signs of any improvement, what do you do? Ignore it? See it for what it is, revise, change your state? How can you ignore something happening in front if you, something you don’t like/ want? How can you change your inner conversations and go with the flow?

    But what about the current reality? How can we consider that as an illusion? Especially if we are trying manifest Perfect Health in a person but that person is suffering or is in pain and we are not seeing any improvement…. do we ignore that? That’s not possible. Or do we then go into the first Principle, Revise and imagine again? How do we feel that ease at that point in time?

    Thank you so much for this beautiful article. I’m honestly so thankful I found this blog. Your writings just resonate so much with me. I used to put too much pressure on myself when it comes to manifesting like I would get upset when I feel like I didn’t visualize correctly or I didn’t feel enough. Reading your blog truly helped me to just let go and let things flow. Thank you so much!
