For a person to attempt to live apart from this
 world is as useless as for a drop of water to
 live apart from the ocean. God put everything in this world,
 and He takes nothing out.
To endeavor to withdraw from the world’s activities
 is another way of fooling yourself.
We are an influence for good or evil regardless of
our attempts to hide from society at large.
 
When a rock falls from a cliff into the sea,
it is not merely that the land is one rock less,
it means the contour of the whole continent has changed.
 However, it is still a part of God’s Universe
 whether it can be seen by man or not.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE
 
“Q: Show us how to rise above the commonplace.
 
A: By seeking a bit more self-knowledge every day you do something
far greater than conquering the entire world. This is not sentimental
philosophy but a tremendous truth.”

THE JOY OF LIVING
. . . therefore the joy of good living is the theme of A.A.’s Twelfth Step.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 125
A.A. is a joyful program! Even so, I occasionally balk at taking the necessary steps to move ahead, and find myself resisting the very actions that could bring about the joy I want. I would not resist if those actions did not touch some vulnerable area of my life, an area that needs hope and fulfillment. Repeated exposure to joyfulness has a way of softening the hard, outer edges of my ego. Therein lies the power of joyfulness to help all members of A.A.

The greatest of mystics have consciously walked
with God and talked with Him, just as we talk with each other.

 I would think of the homeless people as Wilderness people.
I was always romanticizing everything.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
~Rumi

Those who have a strong sense of love and belonging have the courage to be imperfect.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Lesson 363
This holy instant would I give to You.
Be You in charge. For I would follow You,
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me.
 If I need a thought, that will He also give.
 And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind,
 these are the gifts I will receive of Him.
He is in charge by my request.
And He will hear and answer me, because
He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.
====================================
Each day we behold different scenes,
 and each day has a lesson to teach….
 Learn the lesson by concentrating o
n the supreme purpose of human existence:
to know Who is behind your life. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 

“Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
 Before we too into the Dust Descend; 
Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,
 Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer and—sans End!” 
― Omar Khayyám
