     “There is no real happiness for those on the wrong side. The greatest pleasure in life is the security of the true side. You can vainly try to win over the world or you can nicely be over the world. Your task is to change your operating center from strained imagination to relaxed reality.”

    Doug Stewart     The teachings of Vernon Howard have touched my life in so many ways. They have shaped how I start my day, how I pass through it and how I end it. How true it is that every moment presents all of us with the opportunity to wake up.
         Vernon tells us to start our day in a right way. I employ the suggestions in Practical Exercises for Inner Harmony. Despite the grogginess, I try to feel my feet on the floor and give my psychic system a good shake when I first get out of bed. My next inclination is to get a cup of coffee or do some calisthenics, but I don’t. A phrase came to my head one day, which was “Put the Spiritual Before the Physical”, so I move on to another Vernon Howard exercise I heard on a tape called “Walk Yourself Awake” — you’ll find it printed on the New Life website. There are probably only four or five days out of each year that I do not do this exercise, if you’ll pardon the term, religiously. One has to do it alone and sometimes it’s been a challenge while on out-of-town trips with family members or organized events like Boy Scout camp outs but one can find a way. I also include something else that’s vitally important to me.
         A number of years ago, I heard a tape about Right Prayers. I have always been fascinated with praying to God. Before coming to New Life, I was very confused and reluctant to pray, primarily because everything I learned about praying came from corrupted sources. You can imagine the kind of prayers that were answered and those that weren’t! Do you know what a miracle it is to learn how to pray rightly? I don’t go out of the house each morning without saying a number of right prayers that I have heard Mr. Howard give us on tapes and in books. I also include some that I have created myself, using guidelines he articulated. The prayers I say include “Please God, go with me today”, “Please God, save me from me”, “Please God, let me be strong with Your Strength ... let me be wise with Your Wisdom ... let me be pleasant with Your Pleasantness” and others. One day, a prayer came to me “Please God, let me be sane with Your Sanity”. I’ll take all the authentic help I can get!
          Driving to my office or to class usually involves a fair amount of time on the road. I used to grumble about all the driving but the long stretches in the car have presented me with a unique opportunity to add more Truth to my life. There’s almost always a Vernon Howard tape playing in my cassette deck. I will listen to a tape over and over again before moving on to another one. There is so much I miss on the first pass that it often takes three or four listenings before I hear most everything on both sides. It’s fun to go back to old tapes after a number of years. I am often sure that I have discovered the side of a tape I never listened to before until I come across a particular phrase that rings a bell. When this happens, I have to chuckle at myself. An important part of my Work is to attend as many classes and banquets as I can. I make an announcement in each class about a wonderful New Life free service, the “Secrets of Life” daily quote. I often can’t wait to open my e-mail each morning to see what insights await me there.
         I end my day with a few brief prayers, all of them from New Life materials. One of the most disturbing ones to my old, bad nature is a prayer that says “Please God, show me how to make You my only friend.” It takes courage that I don’t often have to ask God for things I don’t understand. I’ve heard Vernon give words of genuine guidance: he tells you to ask God for something even if you don’t know what you’re asking for.
         There is so much to learn and not all the time in the world left to do it. With each new gleam of insight that comes from Mr. Howard’s teachings, it becomes more and more clear to me that nothing is more important than The Work. As that famous television series used to say, “The Truth is out there!” Yes, it is and no one provides it more clearly or in such abundance as Vernon Howard does.

     “I’ve read Vernon Howard’s books and listened to his talks steadily for the last 25 years. I think I’ve read 90% of the other books on self-development and as yet, none has made the deep and lasting impression  on me as has Vernon’s. His passing was a loss to us but the Truth he left behind remains alive and well.”
