DAILIES
 
 Eye Opener (1950)
 
It is not possible to help a man as long as he stands in his own way, 
nor can anyone or anything else.
 
A vast host of drinkers could quit if they could get a job,
 but they can’t get a job because they are drinking.
 
They could quit if they could get their families back,
but they can’t get their families back because they persist in drinking.
 
We are all too prone to get a new man “fixed up” 
so he can stop drinking instead of making him
 realize that he must stop drinking so he can “fix himself up.” 
He must get out of his own way first.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“Since it is necessary to select a single word to indicate
the Higher Force covered in this book, I choose to call it
the Supermind.
 
The definition of Supermind is not complex; it is quite simple.
I mean the mental faculty which is above and beyond conditioned
human thought. It is the same thing as _awareness, consciousness,
esoteric thinking_. It is what an Eastern mystic would call the
_silent mind_, or what the New Testament calls the _Kingdom of
Heaven_ within. It is your _true self_. Quite simply, it is the
force within every man that is as high above the ordinary mind
as the sky is above earth.”
The Power of your Supermind, Chap. 1, p. 2

Twenty Four Hours A DAY  JULY 23,2016
Thought for the Day 
We should remember that all A.A.’s have “clay feet.” We should not set any member upon a pedestal and mark her or him out as a perfect A.A. Its not fair to the person to be singled out in this fashion and if the person is wise she or he will not wish it. if the person we single out as an ideal A.A. has a fall, we are in danger of falling, too. Without exception, we are all only one drink away from a drunk, no matter how long we have been in A.A. Nobody is entirely safe. A.A. itself should be our ideal, not any particular member of it. Am I putting my trust in A.A. principles and not in any one member of the group? 
Meditation for the Day 
The inward peace that comes from trust in God truly passes all understanding. That peace no one can take from you. No person has the power to disturb that inner peace. But you must be careful not to let in the world’s worries and distractions. You must try not to give entrance to fears and despondency. You must refuse to open the door to distractions that disturb your inward peace. Make it a point to allow nothing today to disturb your inner peace, your heart-calm. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may not allow those about me to spoil my peace of mind. I pray that I may keep a deep inner calm throughout the day.
===============================
Thought creates in the subjective, 
in which the idea is accepted and poured,
 and sets power in Motion in accordance with the thought.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 203 Insights
Review:
“I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.”
“I call upon God’s Name and on my own.”
“I call upon God’s Name and on my own” is another way of reminding me I am not a body. If my name is the same as God’s Name, then I must share the same characteristics as God. God is not a body so I must not be a body. God is innocent and wholly loving, so I must be innocent and wholly loving.
 
To call upon God’s Name is to remind me of my Source and What I am. God has no fear, so fear must be alien to me as well. God does not condemn and so I must not condemn. Any image I believe about myself that is different from this is a false image that limits me and blinds me to the truth about myself.
 
To call upon God’s Name is to open my mind to receive the truth of What I am. This is what I truly desire at the core of my being. I truly want to remember What I am. This Self God created is where I find comfort and peace. It is the part of me that remembers God’s Name is my own, along with all my brothers. It is the part of me that sees only unity and therefore is perfectly safe always.
 
Holy Spirit, help me see with the vision of my Self. Help me see the loving innocence of my brother so I may recognize it in myself. Today I would receive Your meaning for everything I look upon. Help me be the Love I was created to be and see It everywhere. Help me answer every call for Love with Love and thereby teach myself that only Love is real.
 
God is universal. God is the truth of all that is real. When I forget God, I am forgetting my Source, my true Identity. When I forget my Source, I am dreaming a dream of being separate from What I truly am. The way out of this is to return to letting God back into my awareness. The way out of this is to be willing to wake up from the dream of separation.
 
Anything other than God is a dream. That is why remembering God is my deliverance. “I call upon God’s Name and on my own” helps me remember the truth. There is nothing other than God. That truth is my safety and my joy. Remembering this truth is my salvation.
 
I would remind myself of the truth frequently today. I would let my mind be healed of belief that anything other than God is real. This is how I rest in God today. This is how I wake up from the dream.

In the limpid waters of my soul let me behold
the unruffled reflections of thy face of stillness.

“Drink wine. This is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you.
 It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends. 
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” 
― Omar Khayyám,
