Eye Opener (1950)
One day we were practicing alcoholics,
 then in 24 hours we were on the Program – arrested cases.
Was it because one day we were weak and 
spineless and the next day we had completely reversed our character?
No, the Power had been there all the time, 
but we had never before tapped it. 
Our best-intentioned friends had advised us to use our Willpower,
 not realizing that it was the stubbornness
 of our Willpower that made us persist in our drinking.
It takes a person of great will to continuously defy
 the pleas and threats of our combined worlds. 
No, it wasn’t Willpower we lacked; 
it was Won’t Power. We Won’t take that first drink.

Thought for the Day 
“If we are still clinging to something that we will not let go, we must 
sincerely ask God to help us to be willing to let even that go, too. We 
cannot divide our lives into compartments and keep some for ourselves. We must give all the compartments to God. We must say: ‘My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my friends.”‘ Am I still clinging to something that I will not let go? 
Meditation for the Day 
The laws of nature cannot be changed and must be obeyed if you are to stay healthy. No exceptions will be made in your case. Submit to the laws of nature or they will finally break you. And in the realm of the spirit, in all human relationships, submit to the moral laws and to the will of God. If you continue to break the laws of honesty, purity, unselfishness, and love, you will be broken to some extent yourself. The moral and spiritual laws of God, like the laws of nature, are unbreakable without some disaster. if you are dishonest, impure, selfish, and unloving, you will not be living according to 
the laws of the spirit and you will suffer the consequences. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may submit to the laws of nature and to the laws of God. I pray that I may live in harmony with all the laws of life.
Why should we not take the highest
and the best? GOD IS- and we should 
realize this truth and make use of it.

For a brief moment, I had needed and wanted God.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 237 Insights
“Now would I be as God created me.”
The second sentence of the first paragraph stood out to me today. It is my function to let the Light of God in me shine upon the world, always. If I am not supremely happy or if I am in conflict in any way, I am not being as God created me. I am not letting His Light shine through me. I have made a choice to limit what I am. The illusionary world of separation is not a place of malice and darkness unless I choose to make it so by choosing to believe it is real and I am separate from my Creator. The thought that conflict and war could exist interferes with my awareness of God’s Light.
Gratefully the Thought of God remains in my mind to help me release the insane belief that conflict could be real. There is no conflict in God and thus there can be no conflict in me in truth. This means whenever I become aware of any perception of limitation, that perception needs to be taken to the Holy Spirit, the Thought of God in my mind. This Thought has the power to heal the mistaken thought of separation. The Thought of God shows me the vision of Christ and speaks to me of the Light in Which I was created and in Which I remain. The Thought of God shows me the glory of God’s Light in me.
As I take each thought of conflict and limitation to the Holy Spirit to be healed, the world I look upon reflects my change of mind. More and more I want to join with the Love I see in my brother instead of protecting myself against his perceived attack. Through the Light in me I perceive a new world, a forgiven world, a happy dream, free of conflict.
I dedicate today to walking with Holy Spirit, letting Him guide my vision and my hearing that I may bring the Light of Christ to the world. Thus I will know my Self as I was created to be.
Today I would practice opening to the truth. Today I would remember nothing has changed from what God created as one. I would remember the world of separation is illusion. I would remember I am not a body. I am still an extension of God’s Love. I would be in God’s peace.
I wear an QRay bracelet for the arthritis in my hands. It had been off for a couple of days and as I was reading today’s lesson, I started experiencing discomfort. I was looking all over the house for where I left it as I thought about the lesson I had been reading.
It occurs to me that feeling pain or discomfort of any kind conflicts with who I am. Surely God did not create me to suffer. To suffer I would have to see myself as separate from God because certainly God does not choose to suffer.
The solution is to take this thought of limitation to God for healing. I am as God created me. Nothing has changed. I chose to add arthritis to my script, but I am the author of that script and can change my mind. Thinking of arthritis as a debilitating illness with no cure is frightening and discouraging. Thinking of it as just another mistaken thought in need of healing puts a whole new light on it!
Peace is everywhere. 
You are swimming in an ocean of peace. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 
“O friend, for the morrow let us not worry
This moment we have now, let us not hurry
When our time comes, we shall not tarry
With seven thousand-year-olds, our burden carry”
