“It is a mistake for anyone to think he has lived too long in his old, unsatisfactory ways to make the great change. If you switch on the light in a dark room, it makes no difference how long it was dark because the light will still shine. Be teachable. That is the whole secret.”
“Supermind exists within everyone, but man is asleep to it. Our entire task on earth is to awaken to the unfoldments of Supermind.”
~ Vernon Howard from The Power of Your Supermind
Vernon Howard is an amazing 20th century teacher.
You may not’ve heard of him, but he’s sold over 7 million books and brings an incredibly lucid, old-school, straight-to-the-point kinda energy to his great books.
I was originally introduced to his work by Tom Russell who runs SuperWisdom.com (thx again, Tom!) and I *HIGHLY* recommend you check out the book if you’re diggin’ it.
Here are some of the Big Ideas:
1. Switching - On the light.
2. Mental Movies - Quit playing bad ones!
3. Don’t Be Impatient - Practice and relax.
4. Detecting Negativity - Is positive.
5. Psychic Spankings - Are helpful.
As we get our Supermind on, let’s remember we’ve *gotta* be true to ourselves!

I have what appears to be a blessed life on the outside, but in reality I am a prisoner to "howling cravings" and insatiable desires and expectations for myself that cause me unending distress and discontentment. I read, study, ponder, and desire change...but it never comes to me. I just end up as frustrated the next day as I did the last.
I found this book about a year ago and the words therein were like a bright light illuminating my mind. The ideas espoused just seemed so simple and intuitive to grasp. That isn't to say that the reader will understand the full depth of the message on the first, second, third or tenth read, only that reading it puts your mind at peace in a way that urges you onward on the path to self-discovery and betterment.
If you are frustrated, feeling stuck or confined to your circumstances, give the book a read and see if it doesn't offer some relief and a potential personal solution for yourself.
