"Feeling is the Secret" by Neville Goddard

Law and Its Operation (part 1)


This book is concerned with the art of realizing your desire.
It gives you an account of the mechanism used in the production of the visible world. It is a small book but not slight. There is a treasure in it, a clearly defined road to the realization of your dreams.
Were it possible to carry conviction to another by means of reasoned arguments and detailed instances this book would be many times its size. It is seldom possible, however, to do so by means of written statements or arguments since to the suspended judgment it always seems plausible to say that the author was dishonest or deluded, and, therefore, his evidence was tainted.
Consequently, I have purposely omitted all arguments and testimonials, and simply challenge the open-minded reader to practice the law of consciousness as revealed in this book. Personal success will prove far more convincing than all the books that could be written on the subject.

"Feeling is the Secret" by Neville Goddard

I. Law and Its Operation

The world, and all within it, is man’s conditioned consciousness objectified.
Consciousness is the cause as well as the substance of the entire world. So it is to consciousness that we must turn if we would discover the secret of creation.
Knowledge of the law of consciousness and the method of operating this law will enable you to accomplish all you desire in life. Armed with a working knowledge of this law, you can build and maintain an ideal world.
Consciousness is the one and only reality, not figuratively but actually.
This reality may for the sake of clarity be likened unto a stream which is divided into two parts, the conscious and the sub-conscious. In order to intelligently operate the law of consciousness it is necessary to understand the relationship between the conscious and the subconscious.
The conscious is personal and selective, the subconscious is I'm ersonal and nonselective.
The conscious is the realm of effect; the subconscious is the realm of cause. These two aspects are the male and female divisions of consciousness. The conscious is male; the subconscious is female. The conscious generates ideas and I'm resses these ideas on the subconscious; the subconscious receives ideas and gives form and expression to them.
By this law, first conceiving an idea and then I'm ressing the idea conceived on the subconscious will make all things evolve out of consciousness and manifest in our 3D reality; and without this sequence there is not anything made that is made.
The conscious I'm resses the subconscious while the subconscious expresses all that is I'm ressed upon it.
The subconscious does not originate ideas but accepts as true those which the conscious mind feels to be true and in a way known only to itself objectifies the accepted ideas. Therefore, through his power to imagine and feel and his freedom to choose the idea he will entertain, man has control over creation. Control of the subconscious is accomplished through control of your ideas and feelings.
The mechanism of creation is hidden in the very depth of the subconscious, the female aspect or womb of creation. The subconscious transcends reason and is independent of induction. It contemplates a feeling as a fact existing within itself and on this assumption proceeds to give expression to it. The creative process begins with an idea and its cycle runs its course as a feeling and ends in a volition to act.
Ideas are I'm ressed on the subconscious through the medium of feeling.
No idea can be I'm ressed on the subconscious until it is felt, but once felt - be it good, bad or indifferent - it must be expressed.
Feeling is the one and only medium through which ideas are conveyed to the subconscious. Therefore, the man who does not control his feeling may easily I'm ress the subconscious with undesirable states. By control of feeling is not meant restraint or suppression of your feeling, but rather the disciplining of self to imagine and entertain only such feeling as contributes to your happiness. Control of your feeling is all I'm ortant to a full and happy life.
Never entertain an undesirable feeling nor think sympathetically about wrong in any shape or form. Do not dwell on the I'm erfection of yourself or others, to do so is to I'm ress the subconscious with these limitations. What you do not want done unto you, do not feel that it is done unto you or another. This is the whole law of a full and happy life. Everything else is commentary.
Every feeling makes a subconscious Impression and unless it is counteracted by a more powerful feeling of an opposite nature must be expressed. The dominant of two feelings is the one expressed. I am healthy is a stronger feeling than I will be healthy. To feel I will be is to confess I am not; I am is stronger than I am not. What you feel you are always dominates what you feel you would like to be; therefore, to be realized the wish must be felt as a state that is rather than a state that is not.
Sensation precedes manifestation and is the foundation upon which all manifestation rests. Be careful of your moods and feelings, for there is an unbroken connection between your feelings and your visible world. Your body is an emotional filter and bears the unmistakable marks of your prevalent emotions. Emotional disturbances, especially suppressed emotions, are the causes of all disease.
