With that said these are the most straight forward and clear wisdom sayings I have ever read.
There is a simple test for determining whether or not we are thinking with self benefit. If either an enemy or a friend appears to be exterior to us,we must reverse our mind. The enemy or friend is always within, though the mind projects them outward,thus deceiving us.
Nothing disturbs the man that controls his own mind.
Where ever you go, you meet yourself.
Your internal state is your world.
A problem is solved by seeing there is no problem outside yourself.
The contented man is rich.
Intelligent inaction is the highest form of action.
Peace exists when you have nothing to prove.....when you have no self to prove.
When demanding something from another person,you lose command of yourself.
Our freedom can be determined by the number of things we can walk away from.
If you want 200 pages of these buy the book.
However, there seems to be no real flow in the book at all- each paragraph being either totally unrelated to the next, or just the same ideas repeated over and over in the book. Looks like it was taken largely from his talks or other lectures and cobbled together. Although great advice, it's largely impractical, with no real means for "sufferers" to get out of their predicament. It's all very well to say "Do it!" and "Why do you have to suffer?", but if readers actually knew how to pull themselves out of their machinations, they would have done it already! Should be used in conjunction with Vernon Howard's lectures or live talks which are more practical.
One can detect the author's familiarity with Gurdjieff and Ouspensky type work, and even much of the jargon is included. Likewise, the author has taken from several traditions including Zen, Taoism, etc. with the aims of quietening the mind, self-observation, and self-honesty.
Still, worth a read for interests sake, and serves as great motivation on being honest and wanting to awaken from 'psychic' sleep.
Another good one, especially for first-time VH readers, is Mystic Path to Cosmic Power.
