“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.
You don’t know what you’re doing when you hurt another person. When you hurt another person, you don’t know it because your attention does not want to be on it. For example: you’ve hurt another person with a curt remark. And you see the hurt expression on their face, and you go into guilt, right? which is part of the false self. See, when you go into guilt, that helps you to block off your responsibility for hurting that person.
You think guilt is supposed to be a humiliating thing, a humbling thing. It is not! Guilt is pure egotism. You feel guilty and then you try to retrieve the situation by saying afterwards, “I’m sorry.” And you’ll do it again because you haven’t changed your position at all. You haven’t uplifted your level.
From now on, you face the consequences of how, and how often you hurt other people just by being what you are! And if you do that, if you face how you hurt other people, and if you’re real honest about it, it’ll make you want to raise your level, because you see that there is no separation between other injury and self-injury.
And here’s the law. No human being ever consciously hurts himself. It is impossible. It is only because you’re in the state of psychic sleep that you go out and hurt other people, and get a false pleasure out of it, a false feeling of life out of it, an excitement, a thrillism. Once you understand that for you to injure another person in any way is injury to you, it stops!
Student: One of first things I heard you say was when you say, “I’m sorry,” you’re buying time, and you’ll do it again.
VH: Wasn’t that good? You be very suspicious of a sorry, repentant person. They’re just waiting to get you again. I’m telling you, they’re waiting, with smiles.
“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!”

Lose confidence in the world to save you. The people you’ve pleaded with for help haven’t helped you. Now see there is no one there to be saved. You don’t have an independent identity to protect.
