     “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.”

August Monthly Lessons

From Vernon Howard Classes

     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.

God Will Be Strong for You

     It is never, ever necessary for any of you to fall into a state of anxiety, tension — any kind of pain at all. Write it down. Look at it fifty times a day. Your little note that you’ve got in a prominent place at home says, “I don’t have to be afraid of anything. I just have to be interested in understanding what is going on.”
     You will not know what you’re talking about, but the words are your beginning guidelines so that you can go from words, to feeling, to comprehension. And the light will burst upon you one day in which you won’t have to say it with your mind anymore because you will know it internally. It will be with you twenty-four hours a day so that when pain of any kind — emotional, physical, psychological suffering — so that when it tries to intrude into your life, you will have more power than it has because you will have received the inspiration and the explanation from the higher place that you don’t have to submit anymore.
     I have to tell you something very special about pain, about anguish. Of all the evil forces on this earth, anguish, hostility, any kind of pain, is one of the most cunning in disguising itself as a needful friend. Now I want you to understand what I just said for yourself. I just said it is unnecessary. I just told you the fact of the matter. Now which are you going to believe?
     Say, “Instead of quaking before that flood of emotions, I’m going to just quietly look at it, as I can do. I can do this.” You can do this.
     “I’m going to say, ‘I’m going to understand you.’ The man giving the talk said I don’t have to be afraid.”
     Now I’m going to state it one more time in different words. It is never, ever necessary for any of you to fall into a state of anxiety, tension — any kind of pain at all. It is unnecessary. Now which are you going to believe?
     Write this down. God has promised to be strong for you. Therefore, you don’t have to tremble anymore. You don’t have to wonder, “How am I going to get out of this scrape?” You will never know what to do, and you’d better not try anymore. You don’t want to leave it to heaven. You think you have to depend on you to figure it out.
     Just do one thing. Bear the new pain, the new shock of having nothing to do. Go through the dark valley. There is a miracle of self-transformation, which is the appearance of all the things you need to build your eternal residence. They will appear to you if you’ll stay right in the center, halfway between — not picking up the tools of Satan over there. Stay there, and stay there, and God will know that you’re using your suffering rightly. He will put the tools on the table that came from a much higher place inside of you. Then you will be a true and eternal believer in God because you know it from the Spirit of God within yourself.
     Suffer knowingly, but don’t do anything about your suffering and the tools will appear and you will build your own Eternal House.

     “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!”

Never Get Discouraged

     If you want help it is yours. All you have to do is want it. You don’t have to know exactly how it is going to come to you. You don’t have to keep the help going in any way. You don’t have to worry that it won’t come. All you have to do is follow the spiritual instruction, which is simply to ask for help. Keep asking for help and then, when that help does not come to you immediately, you are not to allow satanic arrows to make you discouraged, worried, doubtful that there is such a thing as help. You are to never, never, ever under any conditions, get discouraged. You must not wander away, think that it is hopeless, because when you do that, you’re obeying instructions from hell. They told you to get discouraged and the devil will actually put the actual words and phrases and sentences in your own mind in order to deceive and destroy you.
     Pray all over again. Work all over again. If it took you ninety years of your life to find the Kingdom of Heaven, wouldn’t it be marvelous to know that you found God? Once you’ve found it, you’ve found it forever.
