Neville’s teachings have taught me that a desire is more than just something we yearn for. He taught me that all desires stem from God, and that by judging any of them, I am not accepting a part of my divine being. He also reminds us that our imagination is the gift of God. Our desires are us, because they have never been separate from us. Having the desire means completion itself. This is why we are reminded time and time again that creation is finished, because the desire is part of who we are already. It has never been something separate.
The yearning and questioning of a desire is only to have us recognize our true power to our fullest potential. Desiring eventually transcends to feeling it as part of your being, when you remember you are already one with them. This is what living in the end and embodying your desires help with. To help you eventually remember that you have never been lacking the desires you’re yearning for.
“If I want something, I know the desire comes from the Father, because all thought springs from Him. Having given me the urge, I thank Him for fulfilling it. Then I walk by faith, in confidence that he who gave it to me through the medium of desire will clothe it in bodily form for me to encounter in the flesh.
Don’t get in the habit of judging and criticizing, seeing only unlovely things. You have a life – live it nobly. It is so much easier to be noble, generous, loving, and kind, than to be judgmental. If others want to do so, let them.
They are an aspect of yourself that you haven’t overcome yet, but don’t fall into that habit. Simply thank your heavenly Father over and over and over again, because in the end, when the curtain comes down on this wonderful drama, the supreme actor will rise from it all and you will know that you are He.”Neville Goddard
The question of whether something is possible or not, or whether free will matters, then becomes a non-issue. How can we question any of these things, if having the desire itself already means completion? Everything is God, everything is consciousness, everything is imagination. We are one with every person, thing and experience. When you question whether someone’s free will, will interfere with your desire, you are automatically separating it from yourself. This way of thinking comes from the many years of denying ourselves of what we truly desire. Maybe in fear of it being selfish, going wrong or that it may be taken away from us.
The role of a desire is to not make us feel like we are lacking or missing something from ourselves, but to remind us that we are infinite and complete. To remember that the things we want really badly are a part of our entire existence. You are the desire, the desire is you. God rests in the knowing that there is no need to micromanage the state we are in, or every emotion, feeling and thought, because we are already one with our desires. You are one with the person you are manifesting. It isn’t about making them feel the same way but about remembering the oneness between you both and the love you both are.
One of the reasons we come into conscious manifestation is to get something, and for most of us it’s a specific person. Maybe you have argued with them in the past and things ended on a rough note, or maybe you have never met your ideal person. Maybe there is a circumstance on the outside that you feel is hard to ignore. When we think the desire is something separate from us, and therefore something we have to strive for, these past/current circumstances will feel like things we need to control. You might feel like you need to analyze not only every thing the person is doing/saying (or not doing/saying), but also your own self. But, this is still doing something to get somewhere. When in actuality, the desire is right here in the present moment, and you’re only meant to be here and observe how things unfold.
The destination to your desires is in the present moment and free will is not an issue. You may be thinking, “but Jen, I am here in the present moment and I do not see my desire!”. We aren’t manifesting from our logical human self, we are manifesting from our subconscious, from that infinite limitless self. Your Ego wants to tell you the desire is not here yet, but your Godself understands exactly how all of what you are seeing, feeling and experiencing is perfectly a part of the desire manifesting. All a part of the divine plan. The wonderful paradox is that when you feel this completion within you, things manifest fully very rapidly! This is how I choose to manifest my desires. And we feel the completion within by focusing our attentions back on ourselves.
When a desire comes upon me, I remember that it is a real reality that exists within me, not outside of me. As Neville has said, the desire comes from the Father and as you know now, the Father is not separate from us, it is us! It is who we really are. How can free will then be an issue? How can anything be an issue if the desire comes from the wholeness, oneness and completion that we already are? You may fall for the illusion that you are not where you need to be, or that you need to strive, which will only continue to keep us in the midst of a very convincing illusion.
Neville tells us that the desire will be clothed in a bodily form for us to encounter in the flesh. To me this is very important, as it is a subtle reminder that manifestation is not creating from thin air, but bringing something which already exists into our view- into a physical form. We are merely taking that which already is a part of us (the desire), into a bodily form to experience in the 3D. This is exactly what a part of the human experience is about. The desire is waiting for you to give life to it in a bodily form, not the other way around.
You may think you are influencing or manipulating someone, or making them love you, but this way of thinking only further enforces separation and feelings of being loveless. When we remember we are one with our desires, we bring ourselves back to the feeling of wholeness and completion, to non-separation. There is nothing to be changed or controlled from this place, but only a being. A being with everything and everyone, and an understanding that the desire is in all of the pieces we think are broken, including ourselves. This is why every moment is part of the process. The next time you feel like you are reaching for your desires or are questioning the other person, remember that you are one with your desire. Feel it in your being and remember that it doesn’t benefit anyone if you deny yourself something you truly desire.
