Eye Opener (1950)
Is revenge really sweet? Some louse has offended you, 
so you get even, thus offending him and becoming a louse yourself.
Do you really want revenge? Then do the guy a favor. 
It will hurt him deep down in his heart as nothing else can. 
It will be a great source of satisfaction to your wounded pride, 
and it may be that you will be additionally rewarded by the acquisition of a friend.
“What a man calls his success and his failure is simply the
opposite sides of his self-centered imagination.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day JUNE 12, 2016
Thought for the Day 
When we came into A.A., we made a tremendous discovery. We 
found that we were sick persons rather than moral lepers. We 
were not such odd ducks as we thought we were. We found other 
people who had the same illness that we had, who had been 
through the same experiences that we had been through. They 
had recovered. if they could do it, we could do it. Was hope 
born in me the day I walked into A.A.? 
Meditation for the Day 
“He that heareth these sayings and doeth them is like unto a 
man who built his house upon a rock and the rain descended and 
the floods came and the wind blew and beat upon that house and 
it fell not for it was founded upon a rock.” When your life is 
built upon obedience to God and upon doing His will as you 
understand it, you will be steadfast and unmovable even in the 
midst of storms. The serene, steadfast, unmovable life – the 
rock home – is laid stone by stone – foundation, walls, and 
roof – by acts of obedience to the heavenly vision. The daily 
following of God’s guidance and the daily doing of His will 
shall build your house upon a rock. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that my life may be founded upon the rock of faith. 
I pray that I may be obedient to the heavenly vision. 
No man can be happy who live in a continuous
state of condemnation of people, conditions and things.
We must learn to praise and not condemn

I love my friends neither with
my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case heart might stop, Mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forget…

ACIM Workbook Lesson 162 Insights
“I am as God created me.”
Jesus knows what will help us. There is nothing in this world that can harm us or save us in any way. “I am as God created me” helps me let go of my belief in this world. This world is an illusion. I am only dreaming of a world of separation. I am still as God created me. Truth is true and nothing else is true.
It is my attraction to the stories of this world that holds me to this world. “I am as God created me” helps me recognize the truth. It helps me recognize that nothing could ever really happen but God. God is. Love is. And then we cease to speak. “I am as God created me” simply recognizes the truth. When my mind wanders in dreams again, I bring it back by remembering again, “I am as God created me.” Such is the truth.
Because I have such need of it, I know it will help me to remember God’s Words today as many times as possible. “I am as God created me.” These words bring relief from my sick dreams of a world of separation. I know the words of today’s lesson are the truth.
I need this practice today and every day. I begin in the present moment. And through the day if I forget, as soon as I remember, I will return again to, “I am as God created me.” It is the only cure for all the false beliefs found in the dream of separation. None of them are true. There is only one Self. We are all united as Love in the Mind of God. All is still Love, as God created It.
“I am as God created me” goes hand in hand with the often stated thought, “ideas leave not their source.” God is Mind, and therefore His ideas are His creations. My Self is an Idea in the Mind of God and It has not left Its Source. I am not a body, nor am I what the body does. I am not the thoughts I seem to think when I am identified with the body. These thoughts are not shared with God and are therefore not real thoughts. Since these are the thoughts I am usually aware of, I am usually not aware of my Self, as God created me.
Reminding myself that I am as God created me is another way of loosening my identification with the body. This release from identification with an unreal image is essential for me to receive the gifts that God gave me in my creation. His gifts are not of the world of separation. His gifts are not temporary, but eternal. Thus His gift of my Self is eternal. The truth about me is eternal, changeless and unchangeable. It cannot be harmed, so I am safe. All thoughts of fear of any kind can only occur because I believe I am something other than what God created, that I can in some way be changed.
As I practice replacing every thought of fear with the idea that I am as God created me, peace returns to my awareness. I am safe. That can never change. I am grateful for these lessons, which gently lead me back to this awareness.
Oh Father, break the boundaries of the little
 waves of my life that I may join the ocean of Thy vastness.

Paramahansa Yogananda

“It is a shame for anyone

to be well-known for righteousness.
It is a great disgrace to feel
distress at the injustice of 
the turning of the wheels of fate.” 
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
