Say NO to Fear (All new for 2021)
     This is the work project for the entire New Year. In the new series of talks on The Truth About This World Vernon says, “When you understand, you do not fear.” In Your Power to Say NO Vernon exclaims,”You possess the great power to say NO to people and events.” Fear is a terribly debilitating and unnecessary state. You can call the bluff on it. We have to see that fear is based in an individual’s false self, the self made up of all his delusory beliefs about himself. See the magic of saying no.

How to End Suffering Frustration

     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.
Ocean BeachFRUSTRATION by Doug Stewart
     As human beings, we want things to go our way. We want to be what we call happy. We want it now and we are so certain that if we get what we want, we will be happy. Woe unto anything or anyone who blocks our wishes, aspirations and hopes. Reality, which goes its own unique way, comes along and invariably clashes with the ideas, mental images, and strong feelings we have about what we want. It doesn’t behave in the way we demand that it should. Instead of accepting the way things turn out, we react in a hostile manner because the emotion of frustration has overtaken us. One definition of this word is “the feeling of being upset or annoyed, especially because of our inability to change or achieve something.”
     We have expectations of how people should behave toward us and the rewards that we should be getting. We have demands of the way events should unfold and even of how God should treat us. Frustration, hand in hand with disappointment, occurs any time expected results don’t match reality. Your favorite sports team lost when they should have won. You worked hard to land that sale, but it went to someone else for reasons that make no sense. You thought that your Significant Other was in love with you and how rosy things were looking until one day, he or she was gone without any explanation. To make matters worse, it seems like the older we get, the less patience we have with people, circumstances and ultimately, with ourselves.
     We may ask, “Why didn’t I invest in Amazon stock back when the shares were going for $5 each? Now, they’re going for $3500! What was I thinking?” Our plans are thwarted. Our dreams and hopes are dashed. The ship we have been waiting for has never come in. Other people seemed to get the easy breaks…why didn’t we get them?
     Our solution to this mounting frustration is to get angry, feel hurt and vent like an exploding volcano. We direct our rage at other people, God, even inanimate objects. How many times have you been sitting at the computer, irritated because you couldn’t make it work like you thought it should be working? It’s very strange that we really believe frustration, disappointment, irritation, depression, regret and other wrong emotions are the keys to freedom and success! “Of course, I am angry. Look at what’s happened to me! I know I am right and if only I could get my way, that would prove it.” We simply can’t help ourselves from expressing all this pent-up frustration…or can we?
     The old cliché of receiving a gold watch after working 45 years at a company can take on new meaning when we receive the gold watch from something above this life. One day, it can dawn on us: “Is this all there is? Isn’t there more?” Most people refuse to turn toward higher spiritual teachings to deal with the frustration in their lives. Just about everyone distracts themselves by looking almost anywhere but to the real cause of their troubles. The undeniable problem lies in their attitudes, in what they value and in the unrealistic demands and expectations they have put on life.
     Frustration puts us squarely in the jailhouse of suffering.  On Vernon Howard’s Higher World MP3 CD Volume 10, track 21, Vernon says “Truth cannot be imprisoned, cannot be confined, can't be blocked, which means that it is always free like a breeze.” When you are one with Truth, you’ll be free like a breeze because you’ll be free of that self-tormenting “thing” that is acting in your name. When that happens, the individual is in command of his or her emotions and not the other way around. It is possible to let things happen as they happen with no resistance or fighting
     Genuine awareness of the disturbing and energy-draining results of frustration can be used to build up our spiritual strength by revealing that something else can be in charge of the mind and emotions. Notice that the demands of the False Self, even when obtained, do not satisfy. We pay a dreadful price when we give in to the blockage of frustration. The man who has chewed out the waiter for forgetting his order of French Fries is not going to enjoy them because frustration, and the accompanying emotion of anger, has spoiled his meal. Frustration makes us shake, get physically tense, turn red, and experience the humiliation of feeling helpless. The thought, the idea that yelling, tears, crying out in agony and blaming others are the solutions to fix everything must be rejected.
     We can know right now that none of those methods will work. Instead, we can use an instruction that Vernon has given us and say, “Just for once, I am not going to go along with it!”  If we can aim to be aware of the tidal wave of frustration coming in and simply walk in the opposite direction, we won’t be pounded by it and swept up in a sea of anger. So, let’s walk to the higher ground of Self-Observation where we can find a safe place to stand, look at things objectively and let the waves of frustration crash harmlessly off in the distance.        


   “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.”
