Neville Goddard had the unique ability to unpack Bible passages so that the clear light of "New Thought" could shine clearly into the reader's heart and mind. Ernest Holmes, who I admire greatly, also would do this, but Goddard was absolutely on fire with inspiration. I cannot read enough of his books! He writes clearly and plainly, while at the same time writing at an incredibly sophisticated level. Many people have said that the "New Thought" movement was the genesis of books and movies like "The Secret". I would say it's the other way around, especially when it comes to Neville Goddard. In other words, by all means get your feet wet with "The Secret" and "Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life" by Shakti Gawain. And then when you're done Grammar School, go to University, go to Neville Goddard. "The Secret" is child's play compared to what he reveals in "The Power of Awareness." He also teaches you the techniques, not just theory.
