     “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.”

Look Up  (Use for all of 2023)
     This is the work project for the entire year. The most critical thing is to ‘remember’ to do the exercise. It will lift you out of or above any problem or difficulty if you will let it. You do the exercise by letting it come to you. It increases awareness. Vernon Howard puts it this way, “Let this remind you that there is God, who is above all human beings.” The world wants you to be downtrodden and wrongly worship fear and other negativities, while telling you the opposite. Look Up and feel the difference. (For a more detailed explanation)

How to End Suffering Regret

     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.
Rustler Gulch StreamREGRET by Moe Janosec
     How many times have you heard a song lyric to the effect of “If I had just known what to say”? Or read something similar in a book? Or heard it from other people? I’ve personally experienced this many times. That is regret. And since these impressions often get past our inner spiritual sentry, we believe they are our own thoughts. They then proceed to tyrannize us. Regret is yet another negativity that we must work to banish from our psychic system, despite it seeming to be a perfectly acceptable state in our current society.
     Alternately the thought may arise, “I really wish I wouldn’t have said that!” That’s regret too, of course. The more closely we look at regret, the more we realize it takes us away from being alert and aware in the here and now. Truth is trying to give us a higher nature that is never intimidated or tormented by any exterior circumstance or situation, any memory or expectation for the future. But I must be psychologically “home” to receive the benefits of this new nature.
     Vernon Howard gave a classic example of regretting the fact that we didn’t buy that piece of property when we had the chance way back when. Now it’s worth several times the amount of money it was then, and we could sell it and be on easy street. But unless I work very hard with higher, truthful principles I will remain an undeveloped, pained human being — whether physically living on easy street or sweeping out the barn to earn my daily keep.
     The dictionary tells us that regret is: “sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one’s control or power to repair.” It says nothing about the possibility of rising above the circumstances. That is exactly what Truth is trying to get each of us to remember and to work toward.
     To be content right now includes not missing or being sorrowful over anything in the past, or anything our mind might conjure up that may happen in the future. Regret is simply a wrong internal move that I’ve given in to and gone along with. To cut it off and to return to being aware right now is striking another blow against wrongness and taking another step upward toward truly taking my own life back.
     Regret and associated dark states are much more common to us than we realize. Not long ago I found myself thinking, “Boy, it’d be nice if I could still get a good steak with all the fixin’s for twenty bucks like I used to!” It’s absurd that a person would bemoan the fact he cannot turn back time twenty years and enjoy the small pleasures that he did then. We’re here now to learn and to grow, and we can experience a life without confinement or limits if we voluntarily let go of these lower, destructive states. It all depends on my daily decisions to go against my lower human nature.
     Society is not constructed or controlled by forces that wish to help us. Higher truth principles are absolute anathema to them. The evidence of this is everywhere. And yet Truth remains ready and willing to give an individual the help he or she needs at any given moment. The more we realize this, the more rightly excited we become. And then Truth itself will help us to know what to say, when to say it, and when to say nothing at all.
