 Eye Opener (1950)
Man is the only animal that smiles, 
and he is the only one that has need of it. 
Not that God provided more for the animal
 kingdom than He did for us.
 But man, through the stupid misuse of his
 willpower and his other advantages,
 has brought misfortunes upon himself that
 would be unendurable but for the healing
 balm of smiles and a sense of humor.
 
No man is completely beaten as long as he can smile, 
and we know from past experience that we can wade
 out of most of our messes on the stepping stones of good-humored grins.

FREEDOM FROM GUILT
Where other people were concerned, we had to drop the word “blame” from our speech and thought.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 47
When I become willing to accept my own powerlessness, I begin to realize that blaming myself for all the trouble in my life can be an ego trip back into hopelessness. Asking for help and listening deeply to the messages inherent in the Steps and Traditions of the program make it possible to change those attitudes which delay my recovery. Before joining A.A., I had such a desire for approval from people in powerful positions that I was willing to sacrifice myself, and others, to gain a foothold in the world. I invariably came to grief. In the program I find true friends who love, understand, and care to help me learn the truth about myself. With the help of the Twelve Steps, I am able to build a better life, free of guilt and the need for self-justification.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 27
Above all else I want to see.
Today’s idea expresses something stronger than mere determination. It gives vision priority among your desires. You may feel hesitant about using the idea, on the grounds that you are not sure you really mean it. This does not matter. The purpose of today’s exercises is to bring the time when the idea will be wholly true a little nearer.
 
There may be a great temptation to believe that some sort of sacrifice is being asked of you when you say you want to see above all else. If you become uneasy about the lack of reservation involved, add:
 
Vision has no cost to anyone.
 
If fear of loss still persists, add further:
It can only bless.

doing just the first two paragraphs of the daily.

Become a king, an absolute monarch, 
of your own mental realm of calmness. 
Paramahansa Yogananda

“When your soul and mine
have left our bodies and we are
buried alongside each other,
a Potter may one day mold
the dust of both of us
into the same clay.”
