     “There is no real happiness for those on the wrong side. The greatest pleasure in life is the security of the true side. You can vainly try to win over the world or you can nicely be over the world. Your task is to change your operating center from strained imagination to relaxed reality.”

  • 2021 Christmas Banquet

         Heavenly angels really did come down for our Christmas banquet celebration in Strawberry, when three New Life ladies, Kyle, Lynne and Nancy, blended their beautiful voices in harmony. In particular, the opening songs, “Silver Bells” and “O Holy Night,” brought us deep joy, the singing later described as “exquisite, magical, divine and beyond words.” The purity of the singing was a reminder of the effort at New Life to protect the original source of Vernon Howard’s teachings, “which leads us back to our original nature.”
         So much is given to us at banquets, made available for extra efforts in driving in a bit of winter weather, preparing new booklet boxes, cooking delicious meals, working and studying together. As Director Richard Wooldridge said, New Life Foundation has been protected in the nearly 30 years since Vernon has been gone, and it was well demonstrated at the banquet how we are cared for and generously offered the secrets of the ages to lift our spirits.

    “Something has to shake us awake,” Richard pointed out. He was referring to the fact that yes, we are asleep, the whole world is asleep and doesn’t know it. And banquets are especially helpful to focus attention on our sleep and give us the needed jolts to become more awake and aware. The false nature was well described in many ways, called out and put on notice that it wasn’t welcome here.
         We received generous helpings of truth principles from numerous talks, books, and speakers.

    • At Wednesday evening’s class, the speakers focused on the 50 Ways to Get Help from God booklet, whose 50 lessons serve “to connect the human and the Spiritual.”
    • Friday evening, “Mystery Stories for Winning Happiness” in the book Solved — The Mystery of Life were explored. These stories explain clearly and simply many current events and their human causes, such as the “Masquerade Party” explaining the effect of incessant societal propaganda in causing trouble (“accident accident”). (Mystery Stories for Winning Happiness can be downloaded as an eBooklet too.)
    • Banquet Saturday morning, Chapter 6 of Secrets for Higher Success was expanded upon. It’s hard to believe how much richness is contained in just a few pages of above books/booklets.

         Here are only a few of the numerous gems that emerged from talks throughout the five-day event:

    • “Badness needs no motive.”
    • You must give up the childish little bike with the training wheels.
    • Seeking the Truth is the truth about yourself.
    • You can be free of fearing everyone.
    • The human mind is never satisfied.
    • Hiding from conflict solves nothing; it only makes it worse.
    • “The wheel is rigged.” (Referring to Vernon’s casino gambling analogy.)

         On Sunday the speakers explored a dated talk 12/27/87, MP3CD Vol. 16:25, which says to stay home and sit on the couch, which “allows a visitation from Heaven.” No longer try to make anything happen internally; allow God to come in.

         Coming to this banquet gave us the opportunity to make contact with an energy much higher than our own. Thank you, gentlemen, for the strong and healthy talks. And ladies, for the delicious, healthy meals and fantastic singing and Pretties dance, as well as to as those in the comedy acts, which keep getting better too. We are well paid for our participation with pleasant experiences and deeper insights. In addition to the wonderful turkey dinner itself, a delicious soup dinner served Christmas eve exemplified how extra effort materializes in a physical manifestation above the usual.
         After the formal entertainment, here is where one discovers specifically how New Life is truly unique, as when Vernon Howard established it. There are ‘follow the leader’ dances in a large circle and for those who participate to the end, something magical happens. One’s state changes and feels a new spirit, as it has gradually expanded throughout the whole banquet. If you ever feel it, you will never forget it. You will want to know more. It’s your true self awakening.
         The new exercise for the whole year 2022 was chosen and announced: RELEASE TENSION. A huge idea which touches every part of our day, life and being.  See the What’s New page of

     “Thank you so much for the newsletter. Each one is a delightful treat to receive in the mail and is a sheer little treasure of fresh inspiration and relevant comments from Mr. Howard. I have made a vigorous determination to devote myself to my freedom and wholeness. This determination and continuous study of Vernon Howard’s writings yielded life saving results nothing short of miraculous.
    Anyone who really wants an ‘authentic’ life filled to overflowing with the good Life can’t afford to ignore Vernon’s writings and powerful insights into the human condition. His writings answer a life-time of real and imagined concerns that have mystified the most learned minds.”
