Welcome to New Life Foundation
Vernon Howard Founder
“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’m going to teach you to say knowingly, consciously, there is nothing I can do. And you’re not, you’re not, YOU ARE NOT allowed to put one ounce of despair into that statement. You’re not allowed to feel bad about saying there is nothing I can do. You’re to see it purely without you interfering with it. Without the old nature jumping up and saying, “Don’t say that! All is lost if you say I can’t do anything! You’re supposed to encourage yourself by saying I can do it.” And play the record over a thousand times a month. “I can do it, I can succeed, I can win!” That’s what insanity is and you’re going away from that.
Ah, you go home. You write down on a piece of paper, very calmly, as if you were writing out a note to the mailman, or whatever. You write down THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO. That is the pure fact that will rescue you, because the reason you can’t do anything is because you’re not there. You think you’re there. You’re not there. When you see there’s nothing you can do, that’s what giving up means.
In connection with all this, you will understand perfectly how you live every day. I explained it a little bit. You go shopping, you go down to the shoe shop, or you go to the cafe. But you are not intruding on yourself; you are not going into false positions within. You’re staying wide awake knowing that you don’t have to get anything out of anything you can see with your physical eyes or hear with your physical ears. There is nothing in the time world for you so you can give up trying to get anything from it, something from it.
And when the acquired, self-invented nature fades out through insight into its non-existence — as it fades out — oh, the rewards are uncountable, there are so many! And I’ve given you some of them. One of them is the absence of fear of the future. How can you fear something that doesn’t exist to you anymore? You have created a false existence in tomorrow and next year and five billion years from now. You’ve created an illusion, a delusion, and believe in that, and then you worry over it.
Where there’s no you, there’s no future, there’s no worry. Now you’re living — and this is a good phrase — write this down, too. This is an excellent phrase because it puts both the mental world and the higher world together. This is the world that you now live in, and the only one you live in, THE WORLD OF SPIRITUAL SANITY.
The world of spiritual sanity is the only thing you need.
Come back...and we’ll all go for it together.
“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!”

Poor sir, poor madam, how difficult it is for you to let go of yourself! Ah, the difficulty is authentic difficulty but we can do it. We're going to do it. There is no such thing as failure in this room. If you want to succeed — listen to this, this is an absolute promise — if you want to succeed it's as good as done.
If you want to stay you, then go ahead home and live with you. I have nothing in common with you. I'm not going to go back to the old life.
