Imagination Creates Reality from Imaginal Acts Become Facts
The Allegory of Jesus Christ: Psychological Interpretations of The Bible
Throughout Goddard’s writings he consistently references the Bible in order to re-interpret classical Christian teachings from a psychological perspective. He uses Bible verses as metaphors for the psychological evolution of each individual as he comes into his knowledge and awareness of his own ability to create the world from his imagination.
For example, in the Book of John, verse 1 begins
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
Goddard interprets this to means that Man is part of the divine, and as he has an inspiration for a desire, he can create that desire through his determined commitment to believe that it is a fact. In this case, the Word (man’s intention and belief) is the creative power of God, made manifest in man.
