Tom Russell: Vernon Howard's Super Wisdom

Another friend, another great newsletter!

Check out Tom Russell and his work at Tom is a former student of Vernon Howard and provides an incredible resource for Howard's teachings (while adding his own wonderful wisdom in the process). Check it out. You'll be glad you did.

(Thanks again, Tom, for introducing me to the work of Howard. Life changing...)

Here's an exceprt from the newsletter that prompted the post:

VERNON HOWARD LESSONS: From: "There is a Way Out"

Guides for Reading and Successful Study:

1. You cannot explain with words those secrets which are above
the level of words. Language is like the directory on the
first floor of a large building. It can tell you what exists
on the higher floors but it cannot carry you up there. After
consulting the directory you must personally travel upward. So
every seeker must be careful here. He must not mistake
knowledge of spiritual words for an actual and personal
uplifting experience.

2. Question: Many interesting changes have occurred in my reading
habits since attending these classes. Not only do I read
completely different kinds of books, but I read in a new way.

Answer: Yes, that happens. Reading most books is like
strolling idly down a country lane. No special thinking or
feeling is required; you just follow wherever led. But
esoteric reading is unique. It is like stepping off the
country lane to explore unfamiliar ground. You must pause and
look and examine. The customary country lane will lead you,
but only unfamiliar ground can change you.

The books provides great insight but frustration and anxiety always return after awhile.

That's because the books you are reading are only a very useful road map. They are not the cure to anxiety and frustration but provide a way out if you follow their directions. Just like when using a map if you take a wrong turn you can get lost and not arrive at your destination. The reason for taking the wrong turn is that you did not pay attention to the directions. Not the maps fault. Vernon's books will serve you well if you remain ever mindful of the principles he refers to. Hard work, yes at times difficult but they'll most certainly lead you to a new life
