Welcome to New Life Foundation

“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.
Nothing can touch you. Now I know how that sounds. I’m telling you the great mysteries, explaining the great mysteries of the ages that very few people can take into their lives, their deliverance, because they have decided on a single horrifying thing. They have decided, “I want to be me. There's nothing else but me. And I’m not going to let you take me away from me.”
You’d better remember what I just said. If you do remember it, you have a chance because you’re getting to the very root of the whole matter of seeing why most people don’t make it. They have made an atrocious choice to not investigate why nothing is transformed inside themselves. They have chosen to believe that their nature, as it presently is, is all there is.
I’m telling you, look for yourselves. See how defensive people are, how they put their hands up and push you away. And even when you try to correct them — they try to correct you!
Now here’s a marvelous little exercise. Now do it! How many of you have ever been criticized for anything? Reprimanded? Corrected? Whatever. Now, you are to tell yourself what your first twenty reactions were when someone scolded you for misbehavior, and even if they corrected you in a kindly manner meaning to help you. I’m talking about the fixed habitual hardened egotistical response that you make when someone tells you that you did something you should not have done. You know very well in almost every case there is the reaction of “Who are you to tell me what to do? Leave me alone. Don’t you tell me what to do!”
All right. You're going to do something different. You’re going to strike back at that false reaction. You’re going to do something marvelous so unlike you that it's going to shock your shoes off. Tie your shoes on well please.
Picture yourself doing this when someone corrects you for anything at all and you know in your heart that they corrected you properly, not just wanting to get an egotistical thrill out of it. But you’re to do something different that will be a sword of righteousness forever. You’re corrected and you're watching your usual bitter angry remark as it starts to come up to your mind or to your mouth. And you’re going to see that it feels bad. It feels awful. It feels terrible to have a sour attitude of any kind.
Now you know who the real enemy is. It isn’t that person who scolded you, who ridiculed you, who scoffed at you, who derided you for your mistakes. The enemy is you not seeing the enemy of whatever the actual state is. Now that proves that the enemy is nowhere but inside your own mind because you’re not being conscious of yourself. When you see the enemy, then the very knowledge of its presence — the identification of it — makes the right part of you want to not be a gullible victim anymore.
This is the striking back! Truth, Reality, is striking back for you. Your perception, your insight, the new brightness in your mind — that is what is doing the work for you.
“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!”

Know you’re seated in the living room. Be aware. By knowing where you are you can drive away all evil.
Ladies, how to never again suffer in your relationship with a man: One of the most tormenting horrible anxieties that any human being has is the fear of making a mistake with another human being and being punished for it. You're afraid to open your mouth. Anytime a man threatens to leave you, say “Good-bye.” Then be aware of yourself having a cup of tea! I tell you it is very valuable to know you picked up that Scotch scone.
