The subconscious aim of practically all men 
is to get the most and the best out of every day of their lives.
 It is a simple creed and if honestly followed, day by day, 
act by act, it cannot help but lead to greater heights.
Like AA, it is so simple it is incredible. 
Why not try it? It’s what you honestly want anyway.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE
“A skilled doctor once created a new kind of natural medicine made
from herbs and leaves and roots. He offered it to several men and
women who wanted to be cured of their ailments. The patients asked
the doctor why they should try this new medicine when all previous
remedies had failed. The doctor explained, ‘Because this is com-
pletely different from anything you have ever tried before. I will
tell you how it is different. It _heals_.'”

FREEDOM FROM . . . FREEDOM TO
We are going to know a new freedom. . . .
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 83
Freedom for me is both freedom from and freedom to. The first freedom I enjoy is freedom from the slavery of alcohol. What a relief! Then I begin to experience freedom from fear—fear of people, of economic insecurity, of commitment, of failure, of rejection. Then I begin to enjoy freedom to—freedom to choose sobriety for today, freedom to be myself, freedom to express my opinion, to experience peace of mind, to love and be loved, and freedom to grow spiritually. But how can I achieve these freedoms? The Big Book clearly says that before I am halfway through making amends, I will begin to know a “new” freedom; not the old freedom of doing what I pleased, without regard to others, but the new freedom that allows fulfillment of the promises in my life. What a joy to be free!

go to three or four meetings a day and we really loved it.

Music…gives wings to the mind, a soul to the universe,
 flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, a life to everything.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 30
God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.
The idea for today is the springboard for vision. From this idea will the world open up before you, and you will look upon it and see in it what you have never seen before. Nor will what you saw before be even faintly visible to you.
 
Today we are trying to use a new kind of “projection.” We are not attempting to get rid of what we do not like by seeing it outside. Instead, we are trying to see in the world what is in our minds, and what we want to recognize is there. Thus, we are trying to join with what we see, rather than keeping it apart from us. That is the fundamental difference between vision and the way you see.

O Flower of fragrance! 
Send Thy breath of love to cheer us always,
as we climb the spheres of realization,
on our way to Thee.
