Sabbath Explained

Neville Goddard referred bible while teaching about the law of conscious creation. In Bible it is mentioned that Creator finished the whole creation in 6 days and on 7th day He rested, that day of rest is called Sabbath.

“Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day their shall be to you an holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord” [- Exodus 31:15, Leviticus 23:3]

These six days are not twenty-four-hour periods of time. They symbolise the psychological moment a definite subjective state is fixed. These six days of work are subjective experiences, and consequently cannot be measured by sidereal time, for the real work of fixing a definite psychological state is done in consciousness. The time spent in consciously defining yourself as that which you desire to be is the measure of these six days. A change of consciousness is the work done int these six creative days; a psychological adjustment, which is measured not by sidereal time but by actual (subjective) accomplishments. Just as a life in retrospect is measured not by years but by the content of those years, so too is this psychological interval measured – not by the time spent in making the adjustment, but by the accomplishment of that interval.

Sometime back I read this example (I don’t remember where) and in my opinion, it explains Sabbath perfectly.

Let’s say you are extremely hungry, and you are feeling uncomfortable and almost shaking with hunger. Food is all you think about at this point. After you get to eat food you may end up overeating. Now, you feel full, satisfied, and you may start getting little dizzy if you overeat. Food won’t be on your mind constantly. Apparently, longing for food won’t be there as you had more than enough. This is Sabbath.

Look at your desires in thee same way. Right now, you are hungry for your desire. Once you have it, there is no longing for it. As matter of fact you don’t even think about it because you have it, or if you think it is a small thought here and there that implies the wish fulfilled. You aren’t thinking which technique to do, how many times to do, for how many days or if you have impressed the subconscious mind correctly. You are in complete mental rest. This is Sabbath.

You may get into Sabbath on first try or it may take multiple tries. Don’t force that the state. You simply enjoy the feeling of fulfilment and satisfy your hunger.

You are told it happened on the Sabbath. The Sabbath is only the mystical sense of stillness, when you are unconcerned, when you are not anxious, when you are not looking for results, knowing that signs follow and do not precede. ~ Neville Goddard.

“The Sabbath is the day of stillness wherein there is no working. When you are not working to make it so you are in the Sabbath. When you are not at all concerned about the opinion of others, when you walk as though you were, you cannot raise one finger to make it so, you are in the Sabbath. I cannot be concerned as to how it will be, and still say I am conscious of being it. If I am conscious of being free, secure, healthy, and happy, I sustain these states of consciousness without effort or labor on my part. Therefore, I am in the Sabbath; and because it was the Sabbath he rose and walked.” ~ Neville Goddard.

    As per Judaism the Sabbath is actually observed the seventh day of the week, when no duties and tasks are done and there is complete and total rest. According to the bubble it isn’t just a state of mind, yet an actual commandment given by G-d to observe this day.

    Six days God worked for the world and then rested on the seventh. That commandment given in righteousness fulfilled in the righteousness of the Law. The Law of God brought us to rest in the righteousness of God. His name is Jesus. I find His teaching to be the fulfillment of all the commands of God, Sabbath included. To rest in the holy works of God and especially on the day we worship. Jesus is working on a place for believers even now where there is no day or night. I say rest on the seventh if you must according to tradition and everyday if you can in Jesus.

    They usually even make their dinner the day before so they don’t have to cook on the Sabbath. It’s a really big thing in Judaism.
