Both books helped me tremendously. My friends sister simply wouldn't touch Power of Now but read The Power of the Supermind with relish.

Vernon Howard, in Freedom From A Life Of Hell, wrote:A schoolboy had covered his desk with a dozen notes, but the day's lesson remained unsolved. His helpful teacher approached with a note having the right answer. Noticing the cluttered desk the teacher requested, "But first, please clear your answers away." Your Inner Oasis promises, "Make room for the solutions you need and they will arrive for sure. When you know that you don't know - you will!"

Eseward, could you recommend the best book by Vernon Howard, for de-energising thought forms
:"Mystic Path To Cosmic Power and The Power Of your Supermind both are good books."
I'm ordering a couple of books off amazon today, and thought of the thread when you mentioned his techniques for observing the thinker/disidentifying etc.
thanks :wink:

My favorite hands-down is his classic, "Mystic Path to Cosmic Power". I must have read it 50 times by now. :)

For your sublime information, I ordered the book this afternoon through Amazon, second hand. The cost was $0.24 (twenty-four US cents), plus postage of $12.73.

Can't beat it. :D

Vernon Howard, in Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, wrote:Dare to live without opinions. At first, you feel jittery, like an invalid abandoning his cane, but later, quietness sets in. The test of whether you really see a fact about life is this: when clearly seen, you feel a great sense of relief.

Vernon Howard, in Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, wrote:What, then, is happiness? The answer is not complex. Happiness is simply a state of inner freedom. Freedom from what? With a bit of self-insight, every individual can answer that question for himself. It is freedom from the secret angers and anxieties we tell no one about. It is freedom from fear of being unappreciated and ignored, from muddled thinking that drives us to compulsive actions and, later, to regrets. It is freedom from painful cravings that deceive us into thinking that our attainment of this person or of that circumstance will make everything right. Happiness is liberty from everything that makes us unhappy.

Happiness is formless; it cannot be fitted into the frame of our demands. We insist upon this wife or husband, this career or achievement, this home, this security, excitement or distraction. Even if we get our demands, we are no happier than before; we have merely covered our unhappiness. It is still there, and will inevitably show itself when change occurs. We must break the frame altogether, and just let life happen; then, we enter an amazing new world whose existence we never before suspected.

Someone was recently posting about how they seem to have more problems and pains than ever since starting to practice Eckhart's teachings. I recently came across this again...
Vernon Howard, in Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, wrote:Q: Now that I've started to awaken a bit, I seem to run into new difficulties I never had before. Why this extra conflict?

A: A man asleep in a canoe drifting downstream toward a dangerous waterfall feels no difficulties. But when he wakes up and sees his danger, he starts paddling against the current. All the false ideas of life resist the man who begins to awaken. This is a good sign, not one to fear.
