Find the Higher World Within You Where Discouragement Cannot Follow

Key Lesson: The looming shadow of that dark giant called "discouragement" cannot follow you, let alone punish you whenever you will dare to enter the light of higher self-awareness.

End Any Discouragement Right Now

There is no real reason why our lives should ever seem stale or feel futile because real life, of which we are a part, is always new right now. This is the fact of it. Our task is to unleash the power of this fact in our own lives. You may be thinking, "What's it going to take for me to break through to totally present living? How can I learn to really start over all of the time?"

Just as a weary rock climber must at times reach above himself to gain a difficult resting ledge, you too must dare to go beyond yourself to find this ever-present safety. There is no danger in true self-ascent. The only real danger lies within remaining where you are. Think about it. If you could realize and enter into that true quality of life where there is an entirely new you every moment, it would mean that with every single heartbeat you would be free from any possible heartache that might have preceded it. In this new life, every relationship begins for the first time over and over again. Every discouragement is over, right now. Every challenge, every difficulty is shouldered only in its time and is never carried forward or looked back upon with regret. Isn't that what all of us really want? Yes it is!

Do you see what has happened? Something wonderful has already taken place. Our question is no longer, "Is this ever-new life really possible?" Now we are asking, "What is it within me that has kept me from living in this new way?" What a difference! If you will only persist with this kind of bold self-questioning, nothing in the universe can stop you from leaving any painful discouragement behind and breaking through to a new you. This is Truth's wondrous promise.
