Neville Goddard 1948 Lessons Introduction
It is my hope that everyone of you knows exactly what you want, for I am convinced that all of your heart's desires can be realized by applying the technique I will give you in these classes. In order for you to receive the fullest benefit from these instructions, let me state my platform clearly.
The Bible has no reference to any person, or persons who ever existed, or to any event which occurred on earth. The ancient story tellers were not writing history, but an allegorical picture lesson of certain basic principles which they clothed in the garb of history. These stories were adapted to the limited capacity of a most uncritical and credulous people.
Throughout the centuries the personifications recorded in scripture have been mistakenly taken for persons; their allegorical picture lessons for history, the vehicle that conveyed the instruction for the instruction, and the gross first sense for the ultimate sense intended.

A question From The Neville Goddard 1948 Lessons
6. Question: How often should I perform the imaginal act, a few days or several weeks?
Answer: In the Book of Genesis the story is told of Jacob wrestling with an angel. This story gives us the clue we are looking for; that when satisfaction is reached, impotence follows.
When the feeling of reality is yours, for the moment at least, you are mentally impotent. The desire to repeat the act of prayer is lost, having been replaced by the feeling of accomplishment. You cannot persist in wanting what you already have. If you assume you are what you desire to be to the point of ecstasy, you no longer want it.
Your imaginal act is as much a creative act as a physical one wherein man halts, shrinks and is blessed, for as man creates his own likeness, so does your imaginal act transform itself into the likeness of your assumption. If, however, you do not reach the point of satisfaction, repeat the action over and over again until you feel as though you touched it and virtue went out of you.
