The Power of Awareness. Neville Goddard
Originally published in 1952, “The Power of Awareness” is one of the most important and influential books ever written on the power of human thought. Born in 1905 in Barbados in the British West Indies, Neville Goddard travelled to America in 1922 to study theater and found work as a dancer with a touring company. When touring England with his dance troupe, he met a Scotsman who introduced him to metaphysics and theories on the power of the mind. These ideas would become immensely influential to Goddard and form the basis of his life’s work. In “The Power of Awareness”, Goddard set forth his idea that reality is what one makes of it. The world is really only a picture that exists in one’s mind and it can be shaped and manipulated by thoughts and feelings. This revolutionary idea that the power of the mind can change the world was profoundly influential to philosophers and self-help gurus of the 20th Century. Goddard’s brilliant ability to make these complicated and esoteric ideas easy to understand and relatable makes “The Power of Awareness” a fascinating and empowering read that still resonates today.
