     “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.”

         Here’s your exercise. Pure spiritual magic will be given to you if you use it. When you get dismayed over your lack of progress, over anything at all, when you want to leave and go away and lose yourself in the excitement of this world, just use the in-spite-of technique. That means, in spite of the depression, in spite of a feeling that I'm the world’s worst hypocrite, and if anybody knew what I was really like, I’d sink through the floor in shame. You are to counter thoughts of depression, gloom, dismay when they come up and try to take you over, by simply reminding yourself, in spite of everything you can simply make your next move a spiritual one. You know over the years you’ve been given lots of exercises. Let me suggest that you take a long piece of paper and write at the top, “Spiritual Exercises.” Write those that mean the most to you, say up to twenty. And in spite of everything, you will go to that exercise and do it, and I don’t care if you fail, if you get carried away. I want you to consciously start going against wrong thoughts, experiences and feelings. Also I want you to be quick, quick, quick.

         This is an exercise for you to take out and think about. Whenever you put another person under fear by screaming, attacking, slandering and lying, you have put yourself under fear. What you do to others, you have already done to yourself. If you don’t want to be afraid anymore, you can’t do bad things to others. Nobody will believe what I just said. I know it’s absolutely true. I know that everyone is lost and that all lost people are so desperate that one way they get a sense of power of their false role in front of an audience is to make another person scared. If you will have the decency to no longer want to hurt another human being in any way at all, not with a frown, not with a hard look, and if you will abandon and give up hurting anyone, that is a prayer to God Himself.

     “I love receiving the newsletter twice a year and wouldn’t want to miss it. I re- read them over and over.
     Also want to let you know that I love the website. I visit it almost every day. It is so helpful because of the excellent design and information. The daily e-mails reinforce the message and give me something to look forward to every single day.
     I have been studying VH for about 13 years and he has helped completely change my life.
    God bless you all for carrying on his work.”
