Vernon Howard said something so stupendous that it has taken me a lifetime to realize just how powerful one small sentence can be. As he used to say, “Take a truth and relax in front of it.” And so I pass this sentence on to you, as I have before. It has become a touchstone for me…a tool to recover my spiritual energy. Are you ready:
“Work hard gathering energy when you have no problems.”
Yes, I have quoted this before. But I want you to do with it what I have. Let it resonate, let it resound as a clarion call. It will gather you up in its arms and rock you in its rhythm. Why? Because we spend our lives giving good energy away because we are asleep dreaming we are awake. In dreams we give way to wrongnesses both within and without. The pharisee within us is alive and well as we wend our way through wrongness. Trying to impress, striving to attain, bowing to what is beneath us. Only truth can set us straight again.
When my hard drive crashed and I lost all my material, I was devastated. I paid the price in physical and emotional fatigue. So I sat with that statement again and again. And now everything is falling into place as it falls apart again and again. We will never be perfect unless it is with the perfection of awareness that bears no name or form.
