What Giving Up Really Is

I am not going to waste your time with a long post today. My goal is to make you aware of what giving up really means in the terms of manifesting. 

The confusion often arises when people equate letting go with giving up. If you are new to the Neville Goddard’s way of manifesting, and you have studied the law of attraction before, you may have the same misconception. For those who are new here, and for those who aren’t but need a reminder: “Letting go” doesn’t mean you forget about your desire. It means you let go of your old story. Old story consists of current circumstances, past obstacles, current obstacles, and everything that is being outpictured today. We have to understand that what is being outpictured in your world today was imagined yesterday. And I don’t mean yesterday in a literal sense, so don’t take it that way! It could have been two minutes ago or it could have been two years ago. But the timing when the assumption became natural to you is irrelevant because we have to move on from these things we perceive as obstacles. Dwelling on what we perceive as obstacles in our way is only going to prolong their presence in our lives.

Here is what I also want you to understand, and pay attention because it’s very important: There are no obstacles in your way. Only the things that you perceive as obstacles. It all comes down to how you perceive things, how you interpret them. This is why, in the SP community, you will find that one person got rid of a third party by imagining that this third party is bringing them and their SP closer together and another couldn’t get rid of the third party because they kept thinking their SP chose the third party. Besides, obstacles aren’t meant to be tackled one by one. When it comes to manifesting, all we have to do is focus on already having what we desire. That doesn’t include obstacles. It actually excludes them and effectively gets rid of them in the most natural way.

But! I am getting off-topic. To let go, in the NG community, means that you focus only on the new story. You live from the end. To live from the end is to think from the end. What would you be thinking if you already had your desire? To get to the point where those thoughts become automatic and natural or in other words, where that state becomes your new dwelling state, we can use the techniques, such as SATS. 

Either way, to let go doesn’t mean to give up. Here is what giving up means in the manifesting terms. 

You are always in a state. There is not a moment when you aren’t in a state. You are always thinking from this state or another and essentially affirming that your wish is either fulfilled or unfulfilled. This is why I have felt it necessary to bring up the terms old story and new story. You see, the old story is your previous state. It’s the state in which you have been thinking from a place of something being impossible or not working out. The new state is the state in which you are thinking that, that something is already yours. 

So what happens when you give up? You go back to your old state, to your old story. You return to the place in which you thought that the thing that you want is impossible to achieve or get. You abandon the state of the wish fulfilled and return to the state of lack. 

All that giving up does is change your state back to the state of lack. The way that manifesting works is that we have to persist in seeing something the way we want it to be until that thing is externalized in our realities and continue seeing it in that state for as long as we want it to be in that state. You don’t just revert back to your old state once the thing is in your life. You see it from that state, you dwell in that state. You frequently return to the state in which the situation has worked out the way you wanted it to work out. So, if you give up, all you are doing is persisting in the exact opposite. You are then seeing the thing from the state in which it isn’t the way you want it to be, again. You are dwelling in that state, frequently returning to that state instead. 

The choice is yours. From which state do you want to observe the world? The state of the wish fulfilled or the state of lack? All that giving up does is help you revert back to the state of lack. Remember that the next time you feel like giving up and instead, take a break by deliberately focusing on something else.

  1. I love reading this post. To put together everything I’ve learned in this blog and manifested miracles in my life right now(I’m so thankful btw), what we just have to do to get whatever we each desired is just initiating or shifting ourselves in a new state which is Living From The End Result which basically is thinking or feeling like you don’t have to do or worry about anything, thinking or feeling like you already have it naturally, thinking or feeling of allowing and receiving abundance of it while doing things on our day to day that makes us feel good or just ask ourselves, “What would you feel when it’s already yours?”, Persist and continue in this state no matter what. Visualizing, Meditation and SATs are some boosters or just technique to catch the natural feeling and recognize it(we may use this feeling as basis on what it means living from end result) especially for specific wishes.
    The background of this is that we are in truth->changing our self concept, shifting to a new desired reality, letting go of the old story, assumptions being hardened as facts(what is believed so shall we recieve)-> in order for the desired result to take form in our physical world fast. Gauranteed, trusting this process and the outcome will always be surprising or amazing.
    Thank you again for such thoughts. I just came here for visit and a reminder for myself lol.

  2. Hi, something I am a little bit confused about after searching more on what Neville says. I understand we are letting go of the old story and not giving up cos giving up is like saying oh this will never happen so what’s the point. I do get that difference. But Neville said to drop the seed and he also said to persist in the assumption until it hardens into fact, which is probably his most famous qoute that I absolutely effing love. But ok so do we persist until we see it in our physical reality or is there a point we get to by dwelling in the wish fulfilled, living in the end same thing that we naturally drop the seed and enter the sabbath? In other words let go in that sense that we stop doing techniques to try to force it to happen and just allow things to unfold. I hope that makes sense.

    1. Personally, dropping the seed happens quite naturally for me. And you can also tell when you’ve switched states because you will no longer have thoughts from your previous state, or if you have them – you will feel like they are not true or like you are kind of… Detached from them, if you know what I mean. That’s how I would describe dropping the seed. At that point, you will probably feel that doing further techniques like SATS may feel a bit forced because you already have what you want. This is why I bring up the thoughts and how they change – because it’s by your mental diet that you will notice that you have shifted. This is how it works for me but I do know that some people recommend doing SATS until you get exactly what you want, so I think it’s up to you at the end of the day when it comes to that. However, in the grand scheme of things, I wouldn’t worry about dropping the seed. Just continue doing the work until you have that assurance that it is done.

      1. Thank you for the response. There is jsut so much confusion with youtubers and when I read Neville I kow he says harden into fact but that can also mean jsut until you get the feeling of knowing until it’s done and it dpeend son the state it is from. Like if we feel like if we have to do something to make it appear that’s kind of a lack mindset, an anxious one. Technique should be fun and their only job is for us to change our feeling/state/emotoin all the same thing. I don’t really think Neville meant keep obssessing until it shows up cos then we kind of have a tight grip on it and have it in a headlock when all we really need to do is relax and have faith that it’s done, and to stop trying to force and fight against things to chanege.

        1. I think that some of the confusion is due to people having different experiences when they test and apply the Law. Different things work for different people, depending on the beliefs in the background. That being said, don’t worry if someone tells you about something that worked for them and it seems to be the complete opposite of what worked for you. It doesn’t mean your way isn’t the “right” way. It simply means we catch the feeling of the wish fulfilled in a different way. Keep that in mind while watching and reading about others’ experiences with the Law 🙂

  3. What you said is very true. And things that change the lives of many people in a positive way. I am really a believer, but no matter how strong I am, I have not been able to get sinuc for 1 year. yes I never said that. I was always pretending I had consequences. I always tell myself that I am beautiful. I lost weight by imagination. But I guess I didn’t really care about my weight. That’s why I was able to lose weight. However, my short stature, sunken eyes, long philtrumum, my lips like a thin line, pimples, wrinkles on my face and many more things have never changed. I was very faithful. I was drinking water all day. And I believed it. I’ve even cut my reputation with people who say I’m ugly for my mental diet. But why isn’t it happening? I believe. I really need this. I am 15 years old and they call me an aunt. I do not have any friend. The people I meet keep calling me ugly. I don’t understand why it didn’t happen when I was so faithful. Yet I needed it badly.

    1. If you have been struggling with one area of your life while manifesting, no matter what area it is – I recommend returning to the basics. Your outside efforts to cut out people that don’t agree with you etc, in a way reaffirm that there is “something wrong” with you. They show that you may not have impressed your subconscious mind. The best way to do it is through SATS. I recommend doing it consistently and don’t worry about what you are doing throughout the day. Of course, when you start spiraling and thinking negatively, remind yourself of the scene that you imagined and return to that feeling, but don’t try to consciously devise the means to achieving your end, if you know what I mean.
      Imagine being surrounded by people, friends, who are all complementing you on how well you look. Or, if that doesn’t feel natural to you or you cannot come up with a scene of your own that you can visualize and feel natural about, sum it up in one affirmation and repeat it while in a sleepy, drowsy state. I usually get results in a couple of hours or days with this technique but if it takes a bit more than a few days, do not be discouraged. It comes down to consistency with the “work”. You can even test this method first – check out the ladder technique by Neville, in the lecture Consciousness is the Only Reality.
