This comes about through a sincere and persistent effort at objective inner examination and self-discovery, not by superficially ahdering to a set of written codes or beliefs. His greatest asset as a teacher was his ability to convey these lofty principles in a practical, easy-to-understand manner.
This is evident throughout The Mystic Masters Speak. Howard presents 1,360 frequently-asked-questions, if you will, of seekers on the Higher path. A sampling of them:
"Why do we fail to learn from our mistakes?"
"It has been said that knowledge is not the same thing as wisdom. Will you please explain the difference?"
"Why do cruel people often win great prosperity and public honors, and how do they get away with their wickedness?"
"How does the absorbtion of lofty principles change and refine our physical habits?"
"I often feel judged by others, which is a form of mental slavery I would like to abolish."
"What is an example of self-deception, of believing what we prefer to believe?"
May we hear of a spiritual practice for use when meeting trouble of any kind?"
"Why do many people, including ourselves, hesitate to explore beyond our present boundaries of life?"
"Can we really escape our anxieties?"
"What common weakness is remove by self-exploration?"
For answers to these and the other 1000+ questions and concerns posed, Howard turns to over 100 of the greatest spritual masters who ever lived: Jesus Christ, Emerson, Thoreau, Buddha, Marcus Aurelius, Nietzche, Lao-tzu, just to name a few. The responses appear in the form of a quote -- ranging from one sentence to a single paragraph -- from one these "Mystic Masters". Each answer, though brief, is concise and authentically helpful.
To be truely amazed at the accumulation of Wisdom, that Vernon Howard included in this Masterpiece, is beyond imagination.
I have loved this book from the day I opened the cover and read the beginning of a 'journey into myself'.It has changed my life and started a new direction for me toward a New Life...Thank You, Vernon Howard !!
What makes this book different from other compilations is that the author himself seems to have absorbed the contents. It comes from a place not only of repetition but also of awareness. This quality is vital and is lacking in merely scholarly treatments of the same material. This is not to deride valuable scholarship, but something more is needed, and this book has something more.
In the introduction to the book, Howard implores us: "Work at seeing something much higher in these truths than appears to you at first glance. Let them tell you their secret story. The power of these lofty truths wishes to contact you, and it can succeed as you make it welcome. And then, at last, you will know." These great quotes lead us to that which is unwritten, unspoken, and must be discovered within ourselves.
I make it a point to mingle with great minds as often as possible. This book helps me do just that.
