Eye Opener (1950)
 
We veterans of the Alcoholic Wars that raged
within ourselves can bear testimony to the 
fact that it was only when we called upon 
the God of our understanding that peace 
was restored to our lives.
 
World wars are but the extension of the 
conflicts existing in the souls of men on 
a worldwide basis. 
They, too, have as their foundation fear, 
suspicion, envy, intolerance and national egotism.
 
There will never be a permanent peace until the
 Prince of Peace is admitted into the hearts of 
men in high places and is allowed to preside 
over their Conference Tables.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE ,
 
“In this chapter we will solve the mystery of defeat and failure.
Our clues come from esoteric and mystical teachings. You will find
the solution as different from the usual as sky is different from
earth.
 
Among classic legends about heroes and dragons, we have the story
of Siegfried. Like most legends, it contains profound psychological
insights, helpful to those who observe them.”
The Power of your Supermind, Chap. 6, p. 68

GETTING INVOLVED
There is action and more action. “Faith without works is dead.” . . . To be helpful is our only aim.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pp. 88-89
I understand that service is a vital part of recovery but I often wonder, “What can I do?” Simply start with what I have today! I look around to see where there is a need. Are the ashtrays full? Do I have hands and feet to empty them? Suddenly I’m involved! The best speaker may make the worst coffee; the member who’s best with newcomers may be unable to read; the one willing to clean up may make a mess of the bank account—yet every one of these people and jobs is essential to an active group. The miracle of service is this: when I use what I have, I find there is more available to me than I realized before.

=============================

The idea of a successful life will create success… 
 It must first become established in the conscious mind. 
It will then transmit itself into a subjective embodiment
 and when this happens success will become habitual.

Worry is a terrible waste of time.
Ala-non member

I married a woman who kept me on 
a bungee cord she would give me a
little length and then she would snap me back.

The tranquillity that comes when you stop caring what
they say. Or think, or do. Only what you do. (Is this fair? Is
this the right thing to do?)
not to be distracted by their darkness. To run
straight for the finish line, unswerving.
Marcus Aurelius
 


I am just as ecstatic as they are, 
there was nothing to say! 
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment… 
~Rumi, translated by Edward Henry Whinfield

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 24
I do not perceive my own best interests.
In no situation that arises do you realize the outcome that would make you happy. Therefore, you have no guide to appropriate action, and no way of judging the result. What you do is determined by your perception of the situation, and that perception is wrong. It is inevitable, then, that you will not serve your own best interests. Yet they are your only goal in any situation which is correctly perceived. Otherwise, you will not recognize what they are.
 
If you realized that you do not perceive your own best interests, you could be taught what they are. But in the presence of your conviction that you do know what they are, you cannot learn. The idea for today is a step toward opening your mind so that learning can begin.

=====================
a vast cosmos of the different forces of nature
 is tied together by God’s directing power.
Everything works in mutual harmony with the Divine Plan.
Paramahansa Yogananda

“While the Rose blows along the River Brink, 
With old Khayyam the Ruby Vintage drink: 
And when the Angel with his darker Draught Draws up to thee—
take that, and do not shrink.” 
― Omar Khayyám
