DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
Life is not a succession of days on earth,
but rather it is an accumulation of experiences.
Days are simply time locations where experiences transpired.
The day on which no event occurred is a day lost out of life, for 
it had nothing in it to justify its memory.

“An ancient legend told about a village with an interesting name.
When translated, the name came out as The Village Of Those Who Use
Dissatisfaction Rightly. Its citizens had the happy habit of correcting 
troublesome conditions instead of grumbling over them. Anyone can
use dissatisfaction rightly by seeing that the cause is within, not
outside.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day AUGUST 24,2016
Thought for the Day 
“When we saw our faults, we listed them. We placed them before us in black and white. We admitted our wrongs honestly and we were willing to set these matters straight. We reviewed our fears thoroughly. We asked God to remove our fears and we commenced to outgrow fear. Many of us needed an overhauling in regard to sex. We came to believe that sex powers were God-given and therefore good, if used properly. Sex is never to be used lightly or selfishly, nor is it to be despised or loathed. If sex is troublesome, we throw ourselves the harder into helping others, and so take our minds off ourselves.” Am I facing my sex problems in the proper way? 
Meditation for the Day 
Cling to the belief that all things are possible with God. If this belief is truly accepted, it is the ladder upon which a human soul can climb from the lowest pit of despair to the sublime heights of peace of mind. It is possible for God to change your way of living. When you see the change in another person through the grace of God, you cannot doubt that all things are possible in the lives of people through the strength that comes from faith in Him who rules us all. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may live expectantly. I pray that I may believe deeply that all things are possible with God.
===========================
We should never hesitate to say that we know the Truth,
because we do, for the realization of the Unity of God
and (humanity) is the truth. 
The science of Mind page 363 
==========================
Though he could not accept all the tenets of the Oxford Groups, he was convinced of the need for moral inventory, confession of personality defects, restitution to those harmed, helpfulness to others, and the necessity of belief in and dependence upon God.
BB Foreword to Second Edition, p.xvi  
======================
 
 
 
There is only one important point you must
keep in your mind and let it be your guide.
No matter what people call you, you are just who you are.
Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life.
We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone.
No one can help us. So consider carefully, what prevents you
from living the way you want to live your life?

ACIM Workbook Lesson 235 Insights
“God in His mercy wills that I be saved.”
What God wills is what is true. What God wills is what is real. God is Love and Love extends only Love. We are all extensions of Love and only this is what is true. This is what is real. As we were created as Love, we are still perfect and innocent. This is God’s Will.
 
We are saved because it is God’s Will and what is not God’s Will cannot exist. Our remembrance of this brings to our awareness the truth that we are Love immersed in Love. We are safe in Love and this cannot change because only Love is real. Illusions of separation from Love could never be real. That is why we are saved.
 
In truth we were never lost. In illusions of separation we can believe we are lost. But as soon as we are willing to lay these illusions down, we will see that Love could never change and be the opposite of Love. Love is constant. Love is eternal. We are saved because we are Love and God’s Will ensures that this is true.
 
Let me remember this today. When I stray to thinking that something other than Love has really happened, let me return to remembering that only Love is real. Remembering the truth brings happiness, joy and peace. I will to align my will with God’s Will. I will to remember the truth.
One of the central ideas offered repeatedly in the Course is that thoughts do not and cannot leave their source. If their source is reality, they remain in reality. If their source is illusion, they remain illusions. If their Source is Love, they remain Love. That is why it is God’s Will that I be saved. It is simply another way of saying that I cannot leave my Source.
 
To be my Self I must remain Love as I was created and Which I am still one with. I cannot leave Love. God is happiness. I cannot truly leave happiness. I can be unaware of happiness if I believe in an illusion of being separate. But happiness still surrounds me and remains what I am.
 
Belief in illusion can make it appear that there is a force opposing the Will of God. Most religions of the world incorporate this idea of a dark side that opposes God. This dark side is always engaged in battle and God must be constantly defending against it.
 
One of the essential ingredients for movies to be successful at the box office is that they must in some way incorporate conflict between the light and the dark. Without that conflict, it is not interesting enough to draw an audience. The ego thrives on conflict because conflict appears to make the dark side real. And so it appears in most religions of the world.
 
I am not aware of any other teaching that says the dark side, the fallen angel, any seeming force opposing God cannot be real. Yet it is the recognition of its unreality that brings us freedom. It releases us from illusions so we may once again know God’s Will for us is perfect happiness.
 
We have never and could never leave our Source. We remain in happiness, in Love, in God, untainted by any illusion of separation or guilt. This is so because thoughts leave not their source and I am grateful this is so.

Define Abundance follows the law of service and generosity. 
Give to the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.
 Paramahansa Yogananda 
=========================
“This world
that was our home
for a brief spell
never brought us anything
but pain and grief;
its a shame that not one of our problems
was ever solved.
We depart
with a thousand regrets
in our hearts.” 
― Omar Khayyám
