Neville Goddard was among the last century's most articulate and charismatic purveyors of the philosophy generally called New Thought. He wrote ten books under the solitary penname Neville, and was a popular speaker on metaphysical themes from the late 1930s until his death in 1972.
Neville discovered what would eventually become the hallmark of his teaching: It was imperative to assume the feeling that one's goal has already been attained. "It is not what you want that you attract," he would later write; "you attract what you believe to be true."
Feeling is the Secret
Neville grew convinced that man had to think from the end. He called it the state of "I AM". Man could attain any goal, he reasoned, provided he adopted the feeling of it in the present.
If one follows Neville's line of thought, what emerges seems almost too good to be true: Believe that you already possess your goal, and so you will. "Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less than his consciousness objectified," he concluded.
