Eye Opener (1950)
It has always been a source of amusement to observe how belligerent people get in religious controversies, and it is usually true that the less religion they practice, the more they are prone to argue about it.
A convert is anyone who deserts some other form of religion and accepts yours or mine, while a renegade is one who deserts either yours or mine. Your convert may be my renegade.
Those who have the real spirit of the Golden Rule don’t have to fight over religion for they have it, they know they have it and they know no one can take it from them.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“One of your strongest urges is to be some place else doing some-
thing else. Agree? All right, you can do that providing you cast
down all false idols, all false guides like the daily news. If you
didn’t watch the news for a year you would lose nothing. Besides
that, real honest now, do you really care if Portugal is sending
a new ambassador to Yugoslavia, do you really care? The only worth-
while news is when the supermarket ad offers cream puffs at half
price (Laughter). So you have to get tough with what has been
misleading you, including the news.”

Thought for the Day 
“While alcoholics keep strictly away from drink, they react 
to life much like other people. But the first drink sets 
the terrible cycle in motion. Alcoholics usually have no 
idea why they take the first drink. Some drinkers have 
excuses with which they are satisfied, but in their hearts 
they really do not know why they do it. The truth is that 
at some point in their drinking they have passed into a 
state where the most powerful desire to stop drinking is 
of no avail.” Am I satisfied that I have passed my tolerance 
point for alcohol? 
Meditation for the Day 
He who made the ordered world out of chaos and set the stars 
in their courses and made each plant to know its season, He 
can bring peace and order out of your private chaos if you 
will let Him. God is watching over you, too, to bless you and 
care for you. Out of the darkness He is leading you to light, 
out of unrest to rest, out of disorder to order, out of 
faults and failure to success. You belong to God and your 
affairs are His affairs and can be ordered by Him if you 
are willing. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may be led out of disorder into order. I pray 
that I may be led out of failure into success.
The spirit of man is of like nature to the Spirit of God,
 and it is impossible for the Spirit of God to remain in darkness.

“God ought to be able to do anything.”
BB A Vision For You, p.158  
Keep walking, though there’s no place to get to.
 Don’t try to see through the distances. 
That’s not for human beings. 
Move within, but don’t move the way fear makes you move. 
ACIM Workbook Lesson 222 Insights
“God is with me. I live and move in Him.”
If I live in God, I must be perfectly safe. God is Love and nothing else. There can be no harm in Him. I live in Love and harmlessness. To experience this I must forgive God for not meeting my demand that He give me the specialness He could not give. And I must forgive myself for rejecting God because He could not meet my demand.
The ego made the body in order to make it appear that specialness is possible. But it is an illusion and could never be real. If I am offended in any way, it is because I believe it is possible I could be hurt. I could only believe this if I believe I am the image the ego has made. But I live and move in God. The Self that lives in God could never be an image, for what is one could never contain distinct and different images. What is one must be all the same by definition.
If I live and move in God, I must be an extension of God. All God’s attributes are mine. All His gifts are mine. Because it is God’s Will that I am one with Him, it is impossible that I could ever be harmed.
Each time I perceive a threat of any kind and take it to the Holy Spirit for Him to shine His healing Light upon it, I come closer to full remembrance of the life I live in God. I come closer to the experience of His peace. I remember that what I thought my brother did to me never occurred.
Forgiveness is the means by which I awaken to my Home in God. I am grateful I have the means through which I can remember God is with me.
There is only one real life and that is the life I live in God. There is only one Love and that is the Love of God. God’s Love is changeless and eternal. This means my life is changeless and eternal.
The only usefulness the body has is its use as an instrument of the Holy Spirit for awakening from the dream of separation. Beyond every form is Love. If I look for Love I will find Love. I give thanks that this is the truth.
Conquer your circumscribed Consciousness and 
expand your spiritual powers without limit. 
You can go as far as you want to go, past all limitations, 
and live a supremely Victorious existence. 
Paramahansa Yogananda
“How much more of the mosque, of prayer and fasting?
Better go drunk and begging round the taverns.
Khayyam, drink wine, for soon this clay of yours
Will make a cup, bowl, one day a jar.
