APRIL 23,2016 OUR GROUP 23 OF MORNING HOTSHOTS

DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)Look back, my friend, on the interminable nights of sweating, shaking, pacing the floor, praying for the dawn, yet dreading what the day would bring. That stretch in the “can” when “every day was like a year, a year whose days were long.” Days that lasted a lifetime and nights that lasted an eternity.
 
Those days and nights are gone, through the Grace of God, and now there are not enough hours in each day, not enough nights in each week and the span of life seems insufficient to accomplish the goals we have set for ourselves.

feeling that all is well.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day APRIL 23,2016
Thought for the Day
Men and women keep coming into A.A., licked by alcohol, often given up by doctors as hopeless cases, they themselves admitting they’re helpless to stop drinking. When I see these men and women get sober and stay sober over a period of months and years, I know that A.A. works. The change I see in people who come into A.A. not only convinces me that A.A. works, but it also convinces me that there must be a Power greater than ourselves which helps us to make that change. Am I convinced that a Higher Power can help me to change? 
Meditation for the Day
Cooperation with God is the great necessity for our lives. All else follows naturally. Cooperation with God is the result of our consciousness of His presence. Guidance is bound to come to us as we live more and more with God, as our consciousness becomes more and more attuned to the great Consciousness of the universe. We must have many quiet times when we not so much ask to be shown and led by God, as to feel and realize His presence. New spiritual growth comes naturally from cooperation with God.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that God may supply me with strength and show me the direction in which He wants me to grow. I pray that these things may come naturally from my cooperation with Him. 
========================
“In everything give thanks.” 
An attitude of gratitude is most salutary and 
bespeaks the realization that we are now in heaven. 
The science of Mind page 497
 
 
 
12&12 Step Two, p.31  
More often, though, 
we had met up with some major calamity,
and to our way of thinking lost out because God deserted us.


Never lose hope, my heart, 
Miracles dwell in The Invisible.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 114 Insights
Review: “I am spirit.” and 
“I will accept my part in God’s plan for salvation.”
  True happiness is accepting my Identity. True happiness is accepting God’s Will for me. God wills that I not be separate from Him. God is the universal Spirit of Love. That means that I am the universal Spirit of Love.
  I am not a body. I may use the body as an instrument, but that is not what I am. I am not contained by the body or limited in any way. I am still as God created me. I am Spirit, the one Spirit of Love, joy and peace. I have forgotten my Identity, but now I am reawakening to It. I open my mind to God’s Will for me. I practice today opening to the truth. I am Spirit.
  Every day I see stories of conflict. Some of them seem not to be directly related to me. They appear to occur in other parts of the world or in other people’s lives. Others seem to directly affect me. Yet the Course reminds me that no conflict can occur in reality. What is one cannot conflict with itself. Only seeming differences can conflict.
TO CONTINUE:
================================
 Whenever your mind wanders, in the maze of Worldly thoughts, patiently lead it back to remembrance of the indwelling Lord. 
Paramahansa Yogananda
 
 
 
Never lose hope, my heart, 
Miracles dwell in The Invisible.
