Release Tension (Use for all of 2022)
     This is the work project for the entire year. The most critical thing is to ‘remember’ to do the exercise. In A Treasury of Trueness, #1720, Vernon states, “Tension steals your attention.” Living in tension is unneccesary. So, use this exercise to catch tightness, strain, stress, pressure, worry and simply let it go. “Tension, confusion and helplessness are caused by trying to live up to a flattering picture of oneself.” (Cosmic Command) Notice tension in your jaw or facial muscles. Catch pretense which results in tension and release it.

How to End Suffering Disingenuousness

     The commentary series below is focused on a particular negative emotion, painful feeling, negative trait or  state of human beings that causes us tremendous pain and suffering. Perhaps you will recognize that you yourself have had personal experience with this condition. You’ll find the explanation of how it causes suffering and how it produces detrimental effects in your daily life. You will also be shown how Truth can help you to lessen these effects and how you can eventually eliminate them from your life altogether. A new negative characteristic of human nature will be gone into each month. It will be great fun to explore these things in order to help us see through them and to be rid of them.

     In The Power of Your Supermind, Vernon Howard writes, “The most helpful thing you can do for yourself is to be real. To be real is to be everything.” Most people are pretentious phonies. They say things only because it’s expected of them in certain circumstances/situations. Actually, they want something from you. They want you to believe they are considerate and nice or they want something in return, perhaps a favor. This situation can be expressed in the idiom, “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.” It could also be called insider trading.
     The real part of us can detect when someone is disingenuous, when they are saying something they don’t really mean. We can catch ourselves doing the same thing. It is very important that we see things as they actually are and not as we want them to be or the way we’re pressured by others to see them.
     Why would you want a substitute for the real thing? I remember tasting a garden-grown tomato once and it exploded with freshness, deliciousness, natural sweetness and other good things. It was very different from the tomatoes you buy in a grocery store. We have eaten store bought tomatoes for so long, we don’t know what the real thing tastes like. We are going to have to learn what reality tastes like, feels like. When you have a close encounter with another human being who is disingenuous, someone who gives the false appearance of being honest and sincere and you detect that insincerity, it leaves you with a sense of discomfort. It just doesn’t feel right.
     Have you ever had someone make a gesture toward you to try to make up for something they had done earlier to hurt you and you sensed it wasn’t genuine? They were simply trying to relieve the guilt they felt after the episode was over. You knew the behavior was not earnest or heartfelt.
     We must start observing the price we pay for not being real. A disingenuous state is very painful and obviously can cause friction with others. It may appear that everything went smoothly with that encounter on the surface but underneath, resentment and other negative reactions are left behind to cause uneasiness and distress.
     Unless we evolve spiritually both will experience the pain that is felt in the relationship over and over again until we rightly determine to work on ourselves to rise above the ordinary human level. If we truly want a different kind of life and work to discover what that is, Truth assures us we can have it.
     Only you as an individual can experience what that means. It can’t be any other way. Can someone else eat for you? Can someone else hit the golf ball for you? Only you can conquer and give up being deceitful in any way whatsoever. But we individually can experience the cosmic reward of discovering an entirely new way to live life without suffering from a disingenuous life.


   “I went onto the New Life site and clicked on ‘What’s New’. Along with the Lessons and Daily Quotes, I am learning to be in the light and although I am just a novice at this, I want to change and not listen to my false self any longer. Vernon Howard was an Advanced Soul and his teachings are Universal. Thank you for posting food for the Spirit.”
