Neville Goddard Lecture, Conception


Complete Neville Goddard Lecture Audio Available in Members Area



Tonight‘s subject is on conception, both on this level and the highest level. The Bible is vision from beginning to end. Words such as Jesus, Moses, Abraham, and Isaac are used, but their stories are visions. Jesus is the fulfillment of scripture, so when I speak of Jesus, I am speaking of you raised to the level where you can make the same bold statement. Jesus‘ declaration that he was the fulfillment of scripture required a spiritual maturity of which most who heard his claim were not capable of understanding, but the purpose of life is to fulfill scripture. Tonight I will speak of conception which leads to scripture‘s fulfillment, as well as the shadow it casts in this world, for the same technique can be used to realize your objectives here. There is only one Spirit. The Spirit of Man and the Spirit of God are the same. God‘s first great conception is recorded in the Old Testament as a foreshadowing of the event described in the first chapter of the Book of Luke, which tells the story of an angel of the Lord who speaks to Mary, saying: ―Fear not, for you have found favor with God.

You will conceive and bear a son and call his name Jesus.‖ Wondering how this could be, since she had no husband, the angel explains the theory of supernatural conception, saying: ―The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born of you will be called holy, the Son of God.‖ Now, the phrase, ―come upon‖ and the word ―overshadow‖ are the same by definition, and mean ―superimposition; to be superimposed upon leaving your imprint, your seal.‖ In the 33rd chapter of the Book of Exodus, the Lord speaks to Moses, saying: ―I will put you in a cleft of the rock and cover you with my hand, and when I have passed by I will remove my hand and you will see my back. You cannot see my glory, but you will see my back.‖ This is the identical story of the angel and Mary. ―I will put you in a cleft of the rock.‖ In Hebrew the word ―cleft‖ means ―to bore; to penetrate; to pierce a quarry.‖ And the phrase ―I will cover you with my hands‖ means ―copulation.‖ Here is the creative act stated in the New Testament as: ―The power of the Most High will overshadow you‖ for this act is ―superimposition of oneself upon a being.‖ To illustrate my point let me share an experience of a friend who is here tonight. On the 5th day of March, just a few days ago, she said: ―I found myself awake within a dream, sitting on a slab in a huge room, sterile and brilliantly lit. I knew it was a morgue, for I could see many girls to my right, each lying on a slab, appearing to be dead. A door opened and you, Neville, dressed as a physician and your nurse, a lady with very black hair, entered.

As our eyes met I knew that you had had union with every one there, even though they appeared to be dead, and I also knew that I was next. Then a vivacious young girl entered the room and placed herself on a slab next to mine. Questioning her as to the whereabouts of your wife, I was told that she was sleeping in the next room. Upon hearing this, the nurse smiled and I recognized her as your wife, but wearing a wig. Embarrassed because of the knowledge of what was about to take place, I turned to the girl, who said: ‗If you don‘t want him, I‘ll take him,‘ and with that the embarrassment turned to anger, and I said: ‗Oh no! It is my turn.‘ Then union took place and I said to myself: ‗He is like a stallion. How does he do it?‘ and the vision came to its end.‖ This vision has tremendous meaning, for God speaks to man in dream and reveals himself in vision. This was vision, for she was awake in the dream. It is difficult for man to understand that God‘s creative power is personalized; that anyone raised from the dead and incorporated into the body of love is Jesus Christ, creating! In her vision everyone appeared to be dead, yet union had been consummated. All things are possible to God! By burying his creative power in them, he turns death into sleep and sleep into wakefulness and wakefulness into resurrection. Now, those who slept on the marble slabs were as Moses on the rock. The world ―cleft‖ used in this statement means ―to bore; to pierce; to penetrate a quarry.‖ God sends his creative power into this world of death to penetrate the dead. They will conceive and bear his child and call him Jesus. The words Jesus, Joshua, Jehovah all have the same root, which means ―salvation.‖ And if the child to be born of you will be called holy, the Son of God, then God must have fathered him. He cannot be the Son of God were he not fathered by God. People think that Man is not God, but I tell you that Man is all Imagination and Imagination is God.

And when your Imagination is raised from this world in which it is buried, your creative power is used to impregnate the dead and bring them out as God. It seems insane on a certain level, but I am telling you what I know from experience, and just as God impregnates the dead on a higher level, you can impregnate a dead state on this level. Think of a state and you are its spectator. And the state will remain dead relative to you until you penetrate it, until you approach it on your fiery chariot of imaginative power. An egg, whether it be human or that of a chicken, is dead and will remain so forever until the sperm penetrates it. The sperm must penetrate and occupy the egg in order to fertilize it, and then in its own given time the shell is broken and out comes that which was the sperm that penetrated it. A state is penetrated through the act of assumption. Assuming you are now in the state you want to externalize, you think from it and no longer of it. Thinking from, you have penetrated the state. This penetration is still the mystery of all mysteries. Man has discovered how to go to the moon, place cameras in space, yet no matter what he knows concerning the mysteries of the universe, man cannot understand how an egg can be penetrated without a hole either before or after penetration. Well, your imagination is that sperm. You do not have to open doors to get into any room; you simply enter by assuming you are in it. Look at the world from it and feel what you want to feel, and the room has been penetrated. Now remain there until you feel relief. Of all the pleasures of the world, relief is the most keenly felt. So when you enter into (penetrate) a desire, remain there until satisfaction is felt, until you have expelled the sperm right into the state. The Lord told Moses he would cover him with his hand, which is his creative power. To cover is to copulate. Having covered you with his creative power, you are told that he removes it. In other words, you don‘t have to remain in that state.
