Neville Goddard – The Power of awareness

Interference

You are free to choose the concept you will accept of yourself. Therefore, you possess the power of intervention, the power which enables you to alter the course of your future.

The process of rising from your present concept to a higher concept to a higher concept of yourself is the means of all true progress. The higher concept is waiting for you to incarnate it in the world of experience.

Subjective Control

Your imagination is able to do all that you ask in proportion to the degree of your attention.

All progress, Are fulfilment of desire depend upon the control and concentration of your attention. Attention is attracted from without when you are consciously occupied with the external impressions of the immediate present. Your attention is directed from within when you deliberately choose what you will be preoccupied with mentally. It is obvious that, in the objective world, your attention is not only attracted by, but is constantly directed to external impressions. But your control in the subjective state is almost non-existent, for in this state, attention is usually the servant and not the master- the passenger and not the navigator- of your world. There is an enormous difference between attention directed objectively and attention directed subjectively, and the capacity to change your future depends on the latter. When you are able to control the movement of your attention in the subjective world, you can modify or alter your life as you please. But this control cannot be achieved if you allow your attention to be attracted constantly from without.

Each day, set yourself a task of deliberately withdrawing your attention rom the objective world and of focusing it subjectively. In other words, concentrate on those thoughts or moods which you deliberately determine. Then those things that now restrict you will fade and drop away.

You will no longer accept the dominance of outside conditions or circumstances. You will not accept life on the basis of the world without. Having achieving control of the movements of your attention, and having discovered the mystery hid from the ages, that Christ in you is your imagination, you will assert the supremacy of imagination and put all things in subjection to it.
