Neville Lancelot Goddard was born on February 19, 1905 in St. Louis. Michael, Barbados , West Indies, son of Joseph Nathaniel Goddard, a merchant, and Wilhelmina née Hinkinson; Neville was the fourth child in their family of nine boys and a girl.
He came to the United States to study theatrical art at the age of seventeen (in September 1922 ) and while on tour with his dance troupe across England , he caught the taste for metaphysics after a casual conversation with a a Scotch who borrowed a series of books on “the power of the mind.”
On his return, he gave up the entertainment industry to devote his whole attention to the study of spiritual and mystical issues.
His interest intensified after meeting Abdullah, who preached esoteric Christianity .
Neville went to hear Abdullah somewhat of the need to have a friend. The Story:
“I remember the first night when I met Abdullah. I have been postponing all the time to go to one of his meetings because a man in whose judgment I did not trust still insist on attending. At the end of the meeting, Ab approached me and said, “Neville, you were six months late.” Surprised, I asked him how he knew how he was calling me, and he said, “My brothers told me six months ago that you were coming.” Then he added, “I’ll stay here until you’ve got all I have to give you. Only then will I leave. ‘ And he had longed to leave, but he had to wait for me . “
After this meeting, Neville studied with Abdullah, teaching Hebrew, the Kabbalah and the hidden meanings of Holy Scripture .
After traveling along the United States, Neville eventually settled in Los Angeles where, since the 1950s, he has lectured on radio and television, as well as regular public conferences .
