“It is wise to seek immortality for time defeats all other ambitions.”
“What you want also wants you. If you seek the celestial, the celestial also seeks you. There are no unanswered requests in the universe. If we do not like what we are receiving, we can learn to ask for something different.”
Here is a wonderful opportunity to take these powerful truths and put them to use in your daily life. The goal is self-enrichment and the result is new life-command. Remember, the knowledge in these lessons already exists in your higher nature. You need only ascend to the location within yourself. Other people have understood them and so can you.
When you begin to see that you have created your world in your own image, it will shock you. Here is an exercise for you. When you are pained, I can’t begin to tell you what a marvelous change this will make in your life. Every time you feel pain, agony, hurt, instead of thinking about the pain, which you now do, you will do something else. When you think about it your attention is directed toward the pain.
From now on, each and every time you feel a pain, a disappointment, a hurt of any kind, instead of thinking about the pain, you are going to think about something else. You are going to think, “I don’t understand the pain. Just think, there is a demon there, something that is lashing at me.” And it hurts, doesn’t it? But you are not going to get a false pleasure from the pain. You are going to go to the right department and say, “I don’t understand that pain.” That’s it! Then you never have to think another thought about the agony you are experiencing. You are through. You have done your part. I HAVE GIVEN YOU THE WAY OUT.
God himself has just come to your rescue. This is what is authentically religious. God himself says, Don’t think about and swim around in the pain. Simply sit back in your chair, relax and say, “I don’t understand the anguish that is terrorizing my system.” If you don't understand it, there is nothing you can do, is there? Do nothing.
When you complain and cry and moan and groan and think “How did I get into this mess?” etc., nothing will change. With this exercise, you are putting yourself in an entirely different department and you will get the products that that department has ready for you.
Do you want the product of not having to make worried decisions all day long? Just say, “I don't understand that crisis that came up.” And stop. Go through your whole day not understanding it.
It is your spurious understanding that got you in your inner mess. Don't be afraid to have no intelligence of your own. God is willing to make the grand magnificent substitute for you. God gives you his life in exchange for your life.
The majority of people sell their souls to the devil all day long. If you are willing to say, “I don't understand anything at all about my life,” your false understanding will fall away and in its place will be the insight from Heaven itself. That insight from a very high place is all you need for this world and the next world.
“I am so delighted with my new entire collection of the Vernon talks on MP3 CD. I have them on my iPhone and my iPad and I have access wherever I go. Vernon is the best friend I’ve ever had! Since I got this collection, my blood pressure has actually gone down. Thank you for making these available. It feels good to know that they are preserved in a manner that is more lasting than the tapes. I am so grateful. And even the cases are covered with works of art!”

Question: Who am I? You don't know you ask that question.
Answer: Silence is the only answer there is. You don’t want the silence to be there because if it is, then you can’t be there. God speaks to you in silence. If you would allow the silence to be there, which can be done, you would know who you are. And it wouldn’t be from thought.
“God, please show me how to submit to your silence.”
