DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
 
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and all things therein contained. There is nothing on earth that God didn’t put here.
   True, we have manufactured things by changing sizes, shapes or chemical combinations, but all things made by man can be reduced to those elements that God originally put here on earth. All things, therefore, are God’s, and He put them here for our use. He did not intend that we should hoard up surpluses and thus deprive others of their use.
Our responsibility begins in our use of these surpluses.
 It’s God’s, not ours, remember? And some of God’s loved ones are in want.

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.

Twenty Four Hours A Day APRIL 17,2016

Thought for the Day
Every time we go to an A.A. meeting, every time we say the Lord’s Prayer, every time we have a quiet time before breakfast, we’re paying a premium on our insurance against taking that first drink. And every time we help another alcoholic, we’re making a large payment on our drink insurance. We’re making sure that our policy doesn’t lapse. Am I building up an endowment in serenity, peace, and happiness that will put me on easy street for the rest of my life?
Meditation for the Day
I gain faith by my own experience of God’s power in my life. The constant, persistent recognition of God’s spirit in all my personal relationships, the ever accumulating weight of evidence in support of God’s guidance, the numberless instances in which seeming chance or wonderful coincidence can be traced to God’s purpose in my life. All these things gradually engender a feeling of wonder, humility, and gratitude to God. These in turn are followed by a more sure and abiding faith in God and His purposes.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that my faith may be strengthened every day. I pray that I may find confirmation of my life in the good things that have come into my life.
========================
 The truth is simple, direct and always self-evident.

BB The Family Afterward, p.124  
Cling to the thought that, in God’s hands,
the dark past is the greatest possession you have —
the key to life and happiness for others.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 108 Insights
“To give and to receive are one in truth.”
   I have experienced both sides of this truth. I have experienced guilt and fear when I have judged (attacked) another. And I have experienced great feelings of peace and love when I have offered peace and love to others. In fact it seems that sometimes I feel the love stronger when I offer thoughts and words of love to another than when someone offers loving expression to me. Perhaps that is because there are some aspects in my mind that do not feel worthy of love. Perhaps it is because as I offer love and peace, I identify with it first in order to offer it. Or perhaps it is a combination of both. On thing is sure: It is clear that giving and receiving are the same.
   Because of this truth, if I want to experience love, peace and joy, it certainly behooves me to offer them to everyone I meet or think of. Peace does not come through criticism, trying to change others so that their behavior will be to my liking, trying to make others guilty, defensiveness, berating myself for “dumb” mistakes, or any of the myriad other ploys the ego uses to try to make it seem that my lack of peace is the result of some external cause.

Perfect balance is the altar of God.
