     “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.”

First Steps Toward a New World by Vernon Howard
     You can take the first step in whatever place you now find yourself, for when wishing to learn to swim it makes no difference where you step into the lake.
     A stallion advised a colt, “Never argue with mules about the way to the pasture, for they delight in argument, while you must delight in actually finding the way to the pasture.”
     The confusion aroused by hearing the truth should not cause dismay but should be seen as a first lesson in an esoteric education, just as you eagerly enter a cave to learn its secrets.
     If we can have wheat without a field, we can have self-command without self-insight.
     By becoming weary of reading life wrongly we take the first upward step into the hidden library of the mind where every answer is located.
     (These are five helpful excerpts from a tidbit written by Vernon Howard.)

No Complaining  (Use for all of 2024)
     This is your work project for the entire year. Watch your reaction when you consciously tell yourself you cannot complain for a whole year. Baseball or shopping is not our favorite pastime — It’s complaining. We complain about everything. Your false nature hates the thought of not being able to grouse about something. You’re going to make a concerted effort to remember to deprive the negative nature of complaint and then to watch how it vehemently objects to this. You will benefit immensely from doing this exercise.

How to End Suffering Impatience

     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.
Columbine ColoradoIMPATIENCE by Kyle Rickert
     I have three items in my basket as I round the end of the aisle at the grocery store. I see only one cashier checking people out, and six or seven people waiting in line. “They’re supposed to call for back-up from the other sales associates,” I say under my breath, as I line up in the queue. “There went the idea of grabbing a few things for dinner quickly on the way home,” my mind complains as the next person walks over to the check-out. A feeling of anxiety and tightness has already crept in and the all too familiar feeling of impatience is relentlessly nagging me as I shift my grocery basket from one hand to the other. But then I recall a helpful explanation from Vernon Howard who said, “Your first and only attention must be to see your anxious state, not the outcome. Though you may not see it as yet, the problem is your anxiety, not the outcome. Attention to outcome perpetuates slavery to anxiety, even when the eventual result matches your original desire. Awareness of anxiety dissolves it, for anxiety is a bluff which you must see through.” (Pathways to Perfect Living, Chapter 2, “The One Way to Change Your Life Amazingly”)
     Our class work project from two years ago comes to mind, “Relax,” and I also remember the one from this year, “Stop complaining.” It is incredible how negativity comes rolling in like a rogue wave so consistently out of nowhere, and before we know it, we’re drowning in it.
     For me, this feeling of impatience is closely tied to my own personal issues of trying to jam-pack every day with as much as is humanly possible. Being able to “accomplish” more than the average person is like a daily challenge that my ego likes to lay stakes to. However, when that driven ambition is thwarted, an inner (and sometimes outer) muffled growl comes up and impatience snarls and bares its ugly teeth. A recent Secrets of Life quote from Chapter 9 in Vernon Howard’s book Psycho-Pictography really struck me. "Scientist Sir Isaac Newton declared, ‘If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention than to any other talent.’” Vernon’s comment followed with, “Let your attention give you valuable discoveries.”
     Thank God that I found these teachings and classes that remind me over and over that all the impatience, restlessness and irritability can be dropped. I must see that these negative feelings that distract me are destroying the chance that I have for a truly pleasant and enjoyable life. The more that I work at it, the more I am able to catch things like impatience before it catches me. I’m reminded to snap out of the insanity of rushing through life to get to some imaginary outcome that doesn’t exist. There’s nothing at the end of that chase and I’ve proven that to myself many times over. I know that there is a universal force that is trying to get through to me every moment and if I slow down, I will make a connection with it. It’s a great relief when we get glimpses of what’s available with diligent work. There is a better life waiting for us, so know that it's available and keep letting these teachings guide you towards it.

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.”
