AUGUST 23,2016 OUR GROUP 23 OF MORNING HOTSHOTS


DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
 
The poor old drunk has ever had to face the wrath
 of the law and an indignant world.
 Lectures, threats, jail sentences, booby hatches 
and asylums have proven to be but waste of words,
efforts and public funds. Nothing – absolutely nothing – worked.
 
AA tried a revolutionary ministration of sympathy and understanding. 
It recognized his condition as an illness, threefold in its nature,
and that the only medication that would prove effective must
 treat his physical, mental and spiritual disorder at one and the same time.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“Remember, every individual who has found personal peace and
 happiness, has been through everything you may now be experiencing. 
He or she knows the barriers and the frustrations you face along the
way. He understands your concern over financial affairs; he knows
how fervently you wish you had not made that impulsive error; he
sees your secret sorrow. But this mystic-man knows something far
above all this. He knows it can come to an end.”
The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, Chap. 4, p. 75

Twenty Four Hours A Day AUGUST 23, 2016
Thought for the Day 
“We who have accepted the A.A. principles have been faced with the necessity for a thorough personal housecleaning. We must face and be rid of the things in ourselves that have been blocking us. We therefore take a personal inventory. We take stock honestly. We search out the flaws in our make-up that caused our failure. Resentment is the number-one offender. Life that includes deep resentment leads only to futility and unhappiness. If we are to live, we must be free of anger.” Am I free of resentment and anger? 
Meditation for the Day 
Keep in mind the goal you are striving for, the good life you are trying to attain. Do not let little things divert you from the path. Do not be overcome by the small trials and vexations of each day. Try to see the purpose and plan to which all is leading. if, when climbing a mountain, you keep your eyes on each stony or difficult place, how weary is your climb. But if you think of each step as leading to the summit of achievement from which a glorious landscape will open out before you, then your climb will be endurable and you will achieve your goal. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may realize that life without a goal is futile. I pray that I may find the good life worth striving

So we, and we alone, control our destiny.

To me every hour of the day and night is an
unspeakable perfect miracle.

Into my heart’s night
Along a narrow way
I groped; and lo! the light,
An infinite land of day.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 234 Insights
“Father, today I am Your Son again.”
My Father is Love. And I am Love’s Son, or Love’s extension. As Love’s extension, my only job is to extend Love. I am willing today to practice remembering my true Identity as Love’s extension. I am willing today to practice letting go of the false identity I have latched on to as an individual, separate from God. This is not where my safety lies. My safety lies in returning my mind to my true Identity, where I reside eternally as one in God’s universal Love.
 
“Father, today I am Your Son again.” This means I am willing to look at the thoughts that deny this truth and hand them over to be undone in Your loving Light. This is now what time is for — to return to my true Identity as Love.
There are many stories about people who were separated from their parents at birth or at a young age who, as adults, felt a need to find their birth parents. We all have a desire deep within our hearts to return to our Parent, our Source. If we think we are a body, we will search for what we believe to be the source of that body, our birth parents. But this is just a reflection of the deeper inner desire to reconnect with our Father, with Love.
 
Our true and eternal sense of completion can never be found in the world of form. Our true completion is in Love. This is the only place we will find lasting happiness. Only in Love will we feel truly at Home. Only in Love will the gnawing sense that something is missing disappear. Only in Love will we know our wholeness.
 
When we believe we are separate, Love seems to be lost to us. We may hear the call of Love in our hearts, but if we think the world of form is real, we will search for Love where it cannot be found. Love cannot be found in a special relationship with another body. It is not found in another body that shares our DNA. Love cannot be found in winning awards or any special circumstance in the world. Love is found within because Love is what we are. Love is found by remembering we are Love’s extension, by knowing again that we are God’s Son.
 
I rest today in God’s loving embrace by practicing accepting my Self as His loving extension. That is how I know that I am my Father’s Son again. As I practice this I feel the safety of Love’s sure protection, and remember I am free.
 
Thank you God, for being my Father, my rock and my salvation. I need nothing else, for there is nothing else but Your Love, which You have given wholly to me. Thank You.

Refuse to carry the burden of mental and
 moral weakness as acquired in past years; 
burn them in the fires of your present 
Divine resolutions and right activities.

 or try to decide what will happen tomorrow, I look back.”
