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.
“I would like something else to live my life for me. I simply give up. I don’t know what to do about my life. I never have. I remain the same kind of human being.” A non-emotional admitting will bring you to a state you’ve never seen before. You see your need for outside help. When you do look up and ask for help it is extremely vital to do absolutely nothing.
“God in heaven, I need help.” Stop. Go about your daily business watching how your mind is a jungle of thoughts that are trying to interfere. Once you ask for heavenly assistance, you must not think about anything. Remain spiritually quiet, mentally silent. You’re not to try to help yourself. You’re not to try to help God. See what an interferer you are with your request. You must know you’re bothering yourself. Don’t make a star performer when you ask for help.
Pure prayer ― when you see your thoughts are colliding, see “I’ve forgotten my request [to heaven] about madhouse thoughts.” Set them aside so nothing is there but the spiritual memory of your pure prayer.
A request for salvation is never mental. All of a sudden you realize the darkness of this mean cruel world has taken over your mind. Go against it. Go against it. Go against it! You won’t want to go against it. Do it. That’s the wish to shock yourself awake. Shatter the spell. Get that body out of there! You will gradually know what it means to have instant assistance.
Follow instructions. Remember you’re supposed to pray for something higher than you and yield your sleepy state. “I am not going to trust my mind after I ask for help.” Know that you can’t save yourself. All spiritual triumph is possible. Pray for help to stay awake so when the crisis comes, you won’t fall in.
“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!”

The devil starts to tremble when you become a spiritually dominated human being. When that individual who used to torment you and ridicule you, when you come close to him in the Spirit of Truth, boy and girl, will he be surprised when he doesn’t see that faltering and hesitation, and fear in your eyes, and in your hands, and in your manner. And him, that evil person detecting your strength will start to shake. He will start to walk away. All the power is drained from him because your strength being 100%, there is no way he can do anything with that. Evil can only attack evil. Evil cannot attack goodness. No way darkness can ever attack light. Oh, what a surprise that person will have!
You knew all along, by the way, how it would be because strength knows itself. Spiritual power knows what it can do. Your new nature never makes a mistake.
Right now, we’re going to surprise any weakness. You are going to start your whole life over right now. Relax the physical body and open your spiritual part so it can hear more of what is being said, and let your receptivity turn into creativity. Don’t stop to listen to the evil knights in the woods as they try to turn your attention to something else.
“I am stronger than that. I am stronger than this — no exceptions.” In essence, in Reality, you are stronger than that. I am talking about facts. That scary person — there are no exceptions. Why do you limit God? Why do you limit the power that could be yours? Right now, you are a little bit gullible. There is a reason why you get attacked by the evil knights and get defeated temporarily.
Here is an exercise from now on, and all day long. Realize the necessity, the rightness, the goodness, the power of simply starting life all over by simply opening yourself to some new and wider receptivity, to something that is higher than what you have been living with up to that level.
No matter what happens to you in the dark woods, all you have to do is keep riding and never listening to temptations. And if you will keep riding, there is an end to the dark woods. And with your faithful applications in carrying out the exercises, one day right in front of you, the darkness will end, and the bright road will appear before you. And there you are in the light, and that light is your new nature.
