The cry of the single word “Help” will bring more people to your rescue than a long and eloquent oration of your needs. If the God of your understanding is a personal God, one who has all Godly attributes in infinite quantities, then He knows your needs before your sluggish human intelligence is capable of realizing them. The secret of prayer is not long or frequent appeals in Biblical phraseology but an humble, contrite heart, a hope that expects its plea to be heard. A recognition of the Infinite Love that we acknowledge will do all those things which He, in His wisdom, knows are best for us.

GETTING THE “SPIRITUAL ANGLE”
How often do we sit in AA meetings and hear the speaker declare, “But I haven’t yet got the spiritual angle.” Prior to this statement, he had described a miracle of transformation which had occurred in him—not only his release from alcohol, but a complete change in his whole attitude toward life and the living of it. It is apparent to nearly everyone else present that he has received a great gift; “. . . except that he doesn’t seem to know it yet!” We well know that this questioning individual will tell us six months or a year hence that he has found faith in God.
— THE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART, p. 275
A spiritual experience can be the realization that a life which once seemed empty and devoid of meaning is now joyous and full. In my life today, daily prayer and meditation, coupled with living the Twelve Steps, has brought about an inner peace and feeling of belonging which was missing when I was drinking.

==========================================
There is no confusion in the approach to Reality.
It should be calm and dispassionate but filled with 
feeling because feeling and emotion are creative.

 I had this realization that nothing that
was happening in my head is real.

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

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 40
I am blessed as a Son of God.
Today we will begin to assert some of the happy things to which you are entitled, being what you are. No long practice periods are required today, but very frequent short ones are necessary. Once every ten minutes would be highly desirable, and you are urged to attempt this schedule and to adhere to it whenever possible. If you forget, try again. If there are long interruptions, try again. Whenever you remember, try again.
 
You need not close your eyes for the exercise periods, although you will probably find it more helpful if you do. However, you may be in a number of situations during the day when closing your eyes would not be feasible. Do not miss a practice period because of this. You can practice quite well under any circumstances, if you really want to.
 
Today’s exercises take little time and no effort. Repeat the idea for today, and then add several of the attributes you associate with being a Son of God, applying them to yourself. One practice period might, for example, consist of the following:
 
I am blessed as a Son of God. 
I am happy, peaceful, loving and contented.
 
Another might take this form:
 
I am blessed as a Son of God. 
I am calm, quiet, assured and confident.
 
If only a brief period is available, merely telling yourself that you are blessed as a Son of God will do.
=============================

 In the airplane of your visualization, glide over the Limitless empire of thoughts. 
There behold the mountain ranges of Unbroken, Lofty, spiritual aspirations. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 

“Old Khayyám, say you, is a debauchee;
If only you were half so good as he!
He sins no sins but gentle drunkenness,
Great-hearted mirth, and kind adultery.
