“How do I ignore my current reality?”
It’s one of the most common questions I receive, and not surprisingly so. After all, Neville stresses repeatedly that in order to manifest you must focus on the desired outcome, specifically from the end as if you’ve already received the thing that you want (or removed the thing you don’t want).
So in order to do this, we must ignore our current reality, right?
Well, yes and no. Let me explain this one a bit further.
Yes, it’s true that you are constantly creating your external, outside world. Yes, it’s true that if you desire something that you shouldn’t focus or react to anything that contradicts already having that desire. So, it’s natural to assume that in order to manifest you have to ignore your external world, right?
Here’s the thing that I want everyone to understand about your current reality: it’s only a shadow of your past assumptions.
One more time for the people in the back: Your external world is a shadow of your past assumptions.
It’s an illusion, a mirage. Think of it akin yesterday’s leftovers. Or yesterday’s garbage.
Everything that you are currently seeing, hearing, touching, or experiencing with your five senses are the remnants of a past state or assumption. That’s it.
“I tell you: everything in your outer world was first subjectively appropriated.”
The key things to remember here is that one, what you imagine comes first, and everything else follows. Your inner beliefs and assumptions precede your external reality. Two, the world you create in your imagination is every bit as real as the world you see in front of you with your two eyes.
Let that sink in.
I understand it’s difficult to grasp, as we were all brought up by parents and mentors who told us our imaginations were fake, that it was all “in our heads” and not real. Well, I’m here to tell you otherwise. I’m here to tell you to throw that belief out the window, because the scenes you create in your imagination are just as real as your 3D world.
In fact, by the time the scene appears in your external reality it is just an assumption that came to pass. It’s an illusion that is already old and dead, and since you are God you know that it’ll dissolve only to be replaced by the thing which you truly desire.
I sincerely want everyone to understand this, because once you truly understand this concept you won’t feel the need to struggle to ignore your outside circumstances. You won’t feel like you have to put your head in the sand, or cover your eyes to ignore your outer world. Instead, you simply acknowledge that what you’re seeing is an old assumption or belief from your previous state.
It’s old news, so why would you put any emotional attachment to it, or fight to try and “ignore” it?
That’s too much effort and force on your part. It’s truly not necessary. Rather just shrug your shoulders and laugh, knowing that whatever shows up that’s not wanted will come to pass, and your desire will materialize in its place. Because you are God, and you say so.
Now, as humans we tend to over-complicate things. Like, all the time. When you’re new to Neville’s teachings and the Law you’re going to feel like there’s work to be done, or that you have to push against or work hard at something for it to take hold.
I’m here to tell you right now this is another belief that must be dropped. When something appears in your outside world that doesn’t line up with what you’d desire, just go back to your imagination and imagine what you would like to experience instead.
No need to fret or upset or react, just revise your outside world as you go along to match the inner, desired state. Persist in that state that you desire and know it’s already yours, and it will be.
It really is that simple.
