Eye Opener (1950)
You cannot know and appreciate wisdom unless 
you are also acquainted with a liberal amount of pure folly.
Folly provides the lessons that really stick in our 
memories and provide danger signals to govern our
 decisions in our future conduct.
For that reason, the lessons learned overnight in a jail cell 
outlast those acquired after long periods of study.
 Believe you me, those lessons are seldom forgotten.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE
“Everyone has areas calling for special consideration. Some must
reflect upon their inability to be friends with themselves, while
others must consider how often their emotional floods carry away
their natural logic. But everyone should concentrate with maximum
force upon this area: think about what it means to be in a state
of psychic hypnosis.”
Secrets for Higher Success, p. 61

Faith has to work twenty-four hours a day in and through us, or we perish.
The essence of my spirituality, and my sobriety, rests on a round-the-clock faith in a Higher Power. I need to remember and rely on the God of my understanding as I pursue all of my daily activities. How comforting for me is the concept that God works in and through people. As I pause in my day, do I recall specific concrete examples of God’s presence? Am I amazed and uplifted by the number of times this power is evident? I am overwhelmed with gratitude for my God’s presence in my life of recovery. Without this omnipotent force in my every activity, I would again fall into the depths of my disease—and death.

Never say:” here is a patient I must heal.”
For if you think of him from this viewpoint, 
how are you going to heal him? 
If you mentally see a sick man, 
he will remain mentally sick. 
We cannot heal successfully while 
we recognize this as a reality of the Spirit.

All suffering is the result of thought pointing
in the wrong direction.
Thought does not change an emotion but action does.

” I always suffered from self doubt.

Crawl inside this body find me where I am most ruined, love me there.
Rune Lazuli 
Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let the lover be. 


Lesson 19
I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.
The idea for today is obviously the reason why your seeing does not affect you alone. You will notice that at times the ideas related to thinking precede those related to perceiving, while at other times the order is reversed. The reason is that the order does not matter. Thinking and its results are really simultaneous, for cause and effect are never separate.
Today we are again emphasizing the fact that minds are joined. This is rarely a wholly welcome idea at first, since it seems to carry with it an enormous sense of responsibility, and may even be regarded as an “invasion of privacy.” Yet it is a fact that there are no private thoughts. Despite your initial resistance to this idea, you will yet understand that it must be true if salvation is possible at all. And salvation must be possible because it is the Will of God.

The surest sign of God’s presence is the birth
of the dawn of peace, which is the first messenger
to herald his secret approach.
Paramahansa Yogananda

“Into this Universe, and why not knowing, 
Nor whence, like Water willy-nilly flowing: 
And out of it, as Wind along the Waste, 
I know not whither, willy-nilly blowing.”
