Eye Opener (1950)
Can you imagine a state of mind absolutely free of fear?
It is extremely hard for us who have had Fear,
Worry and Uncertainty as constant companions most of our lives.
To attain such a state of mind is only possible where there is complete Faith in God.
Somehow, too, it would appear that it would mean complete faith in our fellow man and in ourselves.
Maybe this is too much to expect, but you can try to cultivate more faith day by day and, as you do, you will find more and more peace of mind and less and less of worry, fear and uncertainty.
It works.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   
“Growth comes by daring to risk more of the unknown than we are
willing to risk. Dare it, venture it — and grow. Declare, ‘My known
ways of thinking have brought me nothing but failure, so why cling
to them?’ Forget the difficulties, and confusions,
and disappointments, for they are unimportant. Remember the only vital thing — the direction in which you are heading.
Confidently abandon yourself to higher truths.
Here is a heroic act!”
The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, Chap. 14, p.

Thought for the Day
Terrible things could have happened to any one of us. We never will know what might have happened to us when we were drunk. We usually thought: “That couldn’t happen to me.” But any one of us could have killed somebody or have been killed ourselves, if we were drunk enough. But fear of these things never kept us from drinking. Do I believe that in we have something more effective than fear?
Meditation for the Day
I must keep calm and unmoved in the vicissitudes of life. I must go back into the silence of communion with God to recover this calm when it is lost even for one moment. I will accomplish more by this calmness than by all the activities of a long day. At all cost I will keep calm. I can solve nothing when I am agitated. I should keep away from things that are upsetting emotionally. I should run on an even keel and not get tipped over by emotional upsets. I should seek for things that are calm and good and true and stick to those things.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may not argue nor contend, but merely state calmly what I believe to be true. I pray that I may keep myself in that state of calmness that comes from faith in God’s purpose for the world.
Remember that when you use your subjective mind, 
you’re using the Creative Power of the Universe.
For the two are really one.

For we are now on a different basis;
the basis of trusting and relying upon God.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 106 Insights
“Let me be still and listen to the truth.”
   Let yourself rest a while in oneness. There is no conflict there, only perfect peace and a deep sense of well-being. Here you recognize through experience that giving and receiving are the same: One undivided Whole, giving all of Itself to all, eternal because It is changeless, being filled up completely, giving completely, safe, happy, loving, loved, gentleness, being Spirit.
  When I let myself open up to this state of mind, it is there, it is real. The world of separate bodies is nowhere and nothing. On the other hand, as I focus on the world of separate bodies, this world becomes very real and God’s Reality seems v distant. The Course tells us that we can have one or the other, not both at the same time. What an opportunity today to take five minutes of every hour to be still and listen to the truth, open to reality, feel the well-being and safety that comes with opening to God’s peace and love and joy.
I will bathe in the sacred pool of God’s
love hidden behind the ramparts of meditation.
