DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
 
Many of the uninformed non-alcoholics looked
upon us of the Drinking Fraternity as lazy bums. 
They do not know the planning and scheming
required to raise the price of a bottle when you are broke. 
They fail to realize that a twelve-hour shift of panhandling
frequently didn’t produce enough to keep us in booze, 
a little food and a flop for the night.
 
We resent the charge that we were lazy – 
we worked much harder and received much
less appreciation for our efforts than those 
who were on somebody’s payroll.
No, it is hard work, small pay and lousy living conditions.

SERVING MY BROTHER
The member talks to the newcomer not in a spirit of power but in a spirit of humility and weakness.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS COMES OF AGE, p. 279
As the days pass in A.A., I ask God to guide my thoughts and the words that I speak. In this labor of continuous participation in the Fellowship, I have numerous opportunities to speak. So I frequently ask God to help me watch over my thoughts and my words, that they may be the true and proper reflections of our program; to focus my aspirations once again to seek His guidance; to help me be truly kind and loving, helpful and healing, yet always filled with humility, and free from any trace of arrogance.
Today I may very well have to deal with disagreeable attitudes or utterances-the typical stock-in-trade attitude of the still-suffering alcoholic. If this should happen, I will take a moment to center myself in God, so that I will be able to respond from a perspective of composure, strength and sensibility.

My word is the law on to its own manifestation and 
will bring me or cause me to be brought to its fulfillment.

Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
ACIM Workbook Lesson 21 Insights
“I am determined to see things differently.”
I’m determined to see things differently. I am determined to allow the Holy Spirit to show me in every given moment what is really happening. I accept that my true nature is of abundance, well-being and Love and that the only thing that separates me from that experience is the limited way in which I see things, myself and others. So I surrender to the fact that I need guidance because of my limited vision. I surrender, not because I’m bad or guilty, but because I choose to remember my innocence and my unity with Love.
 
So when I am determined to see, I am assisting Love in the healing process, which is my only function. It’s not my job to create abundance, security, safety. Its already been created. I’ve only been hiding myself from it. When I am determined to see things differently, I am inviting help to let the truth in about my freedom and experience of it. I can trust in every moment a sincere willingness will bring me closer to the remembrance and experience of Who we really are.

We’re mere shadows in a cosmic dream.
But behind the unreality of this 
fleeting pictures is the immortal reality of spirit.
We are here today
 tomorrow we are gone:
