The past is yet a memory. As you look back on the past and see your progress - what do you think about it? Do you think that your past has anything to do with your future? Do you think that your past defines what your future will be like?
Many people rely so heavily on the road they have taken whether it be one that is well wore or not. The path chooser has completely forget that they choose the road. Right now if you looked back on your past would change something? What if you could go back and advise yourself to take a completely different path. Would you? How about now. If your future self could come back and advise you to choose a better choice now would you listen to you? What would you have to say to yourself so you would believe that what you had to say was important to change the direction of your life course right now? Would you have to persuade? Would you have to tell of the consequences of up coming choices in this pivotal time-line? What would you do to convince yourself that you in the future was right about the present?
Time travel is happening everyday... in the unlikest places. Every day we time travel in some way to our past in the deep of your mind. We travel to the past and relive it over and over and over again just like we were there in person. What a tragedy that we forgot our power to travel every part of the time-line as we contemplate yesterdays mistakes and goofs and blunders. Many people rely on being comfortable with their past pain and grief. Its sometimes better than actually having to risk something to have beautiful future. if you find you are stuck you might need to use the little known technique called your Trojan Horse.
If we study the old story of the Trojan Horse we find that the main idea of it was deception. Here is the story in greater detail.
"Still seeking to gain entrance into Troy, clever Odysseus (some say with the aid of Athena) ordered a large wooden horse to be built. Its insides were to be hollow so that soldiers could hide within it.
Once the statue had been built by the artist Epeius, a number of the Greek warriors, along with Odysseus, climbed inside. The rest of the Greek fleet sailed away, so as to deceive the Trojans.
One man, Sinon, was left behind. When the Trojans came to marvel at the huge creation, Sinon pretended to be angry with the Greeks, stating that they had deserted him. He assured the Trojans that the wooden horse was safe and would bring luck to the Trojans.
Only two people, Laocoon and Cassandra, spoke out against the horse, but they were ignored. The Trojans celebrated what they thought was their victory, and dragged the wooden horse into Troy.
That night, after most of Troy was asleep or in a drunken stupor, Sinon let the Greek warriors out from the horse, and they slaughtered the Trojans.
How do you use the Trojan Horse Technique to better your life? Most people think that they have to face reality, they must be realistic, that they must face the facts, and anything that has to do with your five senses.
Your have been using this techique every time you get what you want when it wasn't available before in your life. Its the same technique you used to capture your lovers heart. Each time you expect an outcome you can't for see on the outside as absolute. What do you think it is?
Every person who can imagine has this ability and possibly even masters at it. The TROJAN HORSE is what you did as a kid often. It is pretending something is true. Not unlike viruses or rogue programs that fake your computers anti-virus protector it pretends to be something else. The TROJAN HORSE was a gift or was it just a pretend gift? See using your imagination to pretend scenarios and scenes you'd like to live is no different than fooling the ego or memory from the past.
As you vividly imagine what it feels like to be in love, to driver that luxury car, to broker that $100 million real estate deal - it is using the TROJAN HORSE. Your pretending something is true until it becomes true. No you don't have to convince the whole city of Troy only you.
BREAKING IT DOWN
When you start to imagine you can close your eyes to your own past. Get this- your past doesn't really exist except in your memory. You have some amnesia and you wouldn't remember your past at all. Now the ego loves to say " Hey You! That isn't you. You have never done that. What makes you think you can now? Huh? You're not this person."
The ego would love for you to think it has some mysterious power over you. It doesn't unless you give it power over you. If you understand the function of the ego you aren't plugged into idea that it halts your progress. The ego is here to serve you. "What?" you might gasp. It remembers for you so you can actually have a physical life. So you can bend over and and tie your shoes. So you can drive your bike, car, or motor home. It has this memory of the past so you don't have to learn everything all over again and again. It also has memories attached to it so you can run away from the Sabre Tooth Tiger when it wants dinner. It is also one that remembers your emotional pain and convinces you that it is something to run from. Its a fight or flight reaction that resides in your memories.
So what you say to your EGO is this when it says something non-supportive of your new assumption, new desire, and entering the new state - Thank you. Please tell me things that support my desire or please do not speak. And then go in and do the TROJAN HORSE technique. Pretend you already have what you want FROM the place of already having it! Receive it as yours. LIve it as yours for as long as you can. 10 hours to 20 seconds would be a place to start. Whatever makes it feel real to you. Liev in that promise land that your dream, assumption, new state is real.
Construct it like you already had it within your mind. As you come from the place you have notice what you'd feel, say, and do next while you just got it in your life. Would you imagine calling all your friends when this happen for you? Would you get an award for this accomplishment? Would you feel sand ooze through your toes because your on the whites sands in the Caribbean? What structure would it be? Feel yourself with it surrounding you as real. Pretend you have exactly what you desire. Play with it. What calls would you receive now because of it? Would you fly some where because of it? Would you have a different taste in your mouth because of it? Just pretend. Pretend with vivid imagining flowing through you.
What happens after when its not yet here after I build it? Do what the Troy people did bring your TROJAN HORSE in and celebrate the war is over. You no longer have to fight to have what you want because you have already received it. Now the difference between you bringing your dream or assumption into your heart as already done and the TROY deception is that when the TROJAN HORSE opens up and reveals what is inside you'll have exactly what you want because you created the TROJAN HORSE in the first place. You are deceiving your senses that whatever you see in the outer world is the only thing that is real. Your go in side and create an inner landscape, and inner world of pretending, that opens up and slays the memories that you can't do this or that. You have suspended your disbelief just enough with pretending that it becomes real. You worship inside the gate of the promise land what is real to your spiritual senses instead of to your outer senses.
THERE IS NO DECEIVING YOUR TRUE SELF
The TROJAN HORSE works because you are not deceiving your true self. Your involving it. Your using your spiritual capacities to teach you what is possible in your world. You are "pretending" long enough to line your vibrational frequency up inside of you to send it out to the outside world. It is lining things on the outside to reveal it you that you are already in the world through your assumption, state, or heart felt dream.
Ignoring the idea that you have to be somebody else or strive to have something or yearn for something is the idea that is a physical only component of your world. You must let go and Pretend what you desire is true until it becomes true on the outside physical world.
As you grew up parents, teachers, and others tell you to be serious. Obviously there is a time to be serious but not when your going for your goal, dream, assumption, or new state you are entering. Being playful makes all the difference. Being playful allows you to make small adjustments to feel the right vibrational on the inside of you. Being playful allows you to make mistakes and not think it is the end of your world. being playful with your intentions allows you to see what other easy adjustments you can make if it didn't come out the way you'd dream it would be.
There are many paths to what you desire. They all start on the inner path of having them first. Building an inner world mental equivalent of your desired dream or assumption as yours already is one of the first steps to telling, yelling, and pronouncing to the Law (or Law of Attraction many people call it now) that your desire is yours. Then as you really accept it as yours it comes into your world by unknown means.
STOP WAITING - START RECEIVING
The universe is triggered by you having the mental and spiritual thought of your desire, dream, or assumption as real. If you focus on that you don't have it - your receive that too. There is a vibrational match within you that says "YES! I have what I desire!" that you want to line up. Ask and you'll Receive it! There is nothing that stops the universe from delivering to you except you. And obviously not on purpose. You just don't know you have interfering beliefs about what your desire is. Another programed thought stops it from coming into your reality. That is what is so great about revising your energy in receiving it. If you didn't get it - just revise that you did. Feel it fully again that you now have it. STOP paying attention to what is in your world in regards to NOT having it. START to see, feel, and hear only that you received it already. Play in your imagination you can now call adventure land that it is yours!
Now go ahead and play with your vibration by pretending that you have it now. Put yourself in the place you have it now. Think and feel from the place it is your already. Do it now. Don't wait. Get yourself in that place that you not only are convince you have it that when someone points out that you don't have it or it isn't here yet - YOU TOTALLY IGNORE their "lies" and continue to experience your ultimate desires of being fulfilled already.
And let it happen now. You deserve it. Your desire it. You have the ability to know that it is yours so let it in to your outer world! Practice the TROJAN HORSE technique and know what is coming out of your HORSE will be a spiritual sensation being manifested as yours! Now time travel until you feel you have your desire and it will be yours!
Happy Time Traveling!
Some quotes to support this material from Neville Goddard:
" You can take it in a financial sense, take it in the social world; take it in any way whatsoever. That is what came to me a few days before I closed. For if I could find something more simple to tell them than I think I have told them, this would be it: to enter into the state and not simply think of the state. Thinking from it differs from thinking of it. I must learn to think from it. A man who this night came into a million dollars, from that moment that man is made aware that he has a million, when prior to that he had nothing. He is thinking from the consciousness of having a million dollars. He is not thinking of it; he is walking in the consciousness of having a million dollars. He's not hoping for it, wishing for it; he is actually in it."IMAGINATION

and another Neville Goddard quote:
" Now, how will I know that I have changed the feeling of "I"? By beginning first with an uncritical observation of my reactions to life and then noticing my reactions when I think I am identified with my choice. If I assume that I am the man that I want to be, let me observe my reactions. If they are as they were, I have not identified myself with my choice, for my reactions are automatic and so if I am changed I would automatically change my reactions to life. So the changing of the feeling of "I" results in a change of reaction… which change of reaction is a change of environment and behavior. But let me warn you now. A little alteration of mood is not a transformation; it's not a real change of consciousness. Because as I change my mood for the moment it can quickly and rapidly be, I would say, replaced by another mood in the reverse direction. When I say that I was changed, as that gentleman changed his mood, his basic mood, his state of consciousness, it means that having assumed that I am what the moment denied, what my reason denied, that I remain in that state long enough to make that state stable, so that all of my energies are flowing from that state. I am no longer thinking of that state, I am thinking from that state. So that wherever a state grows so stable as to definitely expel all of its rivals, then that central, habitual state of consciousness from which I think defines my character and is really a true transformation or change of consciousness. Whenever I reach that state of stability, watch my world mold itself then in harmony with this inner change, and men will come into my world, people will come to aid and they will think they are initiating the urge to help. They are playing only their part. They must do what they do because I have done what I did. Having moved from one state into the other, I have altered my relationship relative to the world round about, and that changed relationship compels a change in behavior relative to my world. So they have to act differently toward me."
