Today's Free Neville Goddard Quote and lesson are in reply to a letter from
Freya, that was left in in the comments section of "The Big Things". We share
our experience, and a great quote that will help you gain clarity, from the Neville
Goddard Lecture - I Am The True Vine below. Enjoy!
"I hear in this quote that a seed must be let go, dropped into the
ground and I understand that to mean that we should do this
imaginal act only once – don’t keep digging it up and examining
it, or it will never come to fruition. However, it seems, from my
limited understanding, that it conflicts with other Neville
teachings which ask us to live constantly in the assumption that
the wish is fulfilled. I find it hard to drop the creative act and at
the same time live in the wish fulfilled. Can anyone throw light
on this? Thanks for your input" - Freya
Our experience here is to plant it ONCE and then Prune The Vine. Planting the
seed involves feeling the RELEASE of it from what was - to what is - and what is
- is growing. We notice in our IMAGININGS - that they grow and evolve - sort of
on their own, when I check back on them in my mind - we are given the task as
the Vine Dresser to prune the vine that grows from the seed.
So the seed which has been planted - grows invisibly first - in the soil - in the
imagination. Taking on new qualities, new aspects, new depth. And it grows in
the objective world too at the same time - as we continue to prune.
Reminds me of the native healers and shaman that I worked with, they too
noticed changes in "the mind" first - and pruned them. They also assumed that
they reflected or were actual parts of the objective world - that they were shaping
and reshaping into more of their evolving ideal. Hope that helps, and notice how
Neville shares this in the quote below.

"If I’m to be the vine of eternity and I am the eternal vine, I can
only grow what I feed myself mentally. What am I feeding
myself morning, noon and night? - - I’ve got to actually put
myself on a diet. A mental diet and stick to it. and then I would
bear the fruit of that changed diet. It’s entirely up to us. All these
little things happen in our life to teach us a lesson. - - And you
say to yourself, I am the true vine and my father is the
vinedresser. Every branch in me that bears no fruit he takes
away. Every branch that does bear fruit then he prunes it that it
may bear more fruit. Now if I am that vine and my imagination
is the eternal vine of the world, then I should do something
about it. In Morning, noon and night, every moment in fact even
in my dreams, I’m pruning. Even in the dream you get to the
point you simply start pruning and you prune and prune." -
