DAILIES
 
 Eye Opener (1950)
It was very hard for us alcoholics to realize that
 God has a big world on His hands and that
 He has other chores than just to give us rain when
we want rain and sunshine when we want sunshine.
 We always thought the Universe revolved around us.
 
That He knows His job is evidenced by the regular
 return of days and seasons, by His distribution of 
weather in such a manner that the world has never
 been devoid of food.
 Think what chaos would exist if He had allowed us to run it our way.
 
God has given us many controls over Nature, 
but He knows the limits of human intelligence
 and the extent of human selfishness.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“It is easy for your true nature to be strong at all times in
every circumstance. Our artificial nature cannot believe this
because it has never experienced this effortless strength. A
rabbit cannot understand the power of a horse. But real strength,
cosmic strength, exists in fact. It is earned by those who are
tired of being frightened children, by those who yearn for cosmic
adulthood. This new strength enables you to enjoy people.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day JULY 26,2016
Thought for the Day 
When we come to the end of our lives on earth, we will 
take no material thing with us. We will not take one cent 
in our cold, dead hands. The only things that we may take 
are the things we have given away If we have helped others, 
we may take that with us; if we have given of our time and 
money for the good of A.A., we may take that with us. 
Looking back over our lives, what are we proud of? Not
what we have gained for ourselves, but what few good deeds 
we have done. Those are the things that really matter in 
the long run. What will I take with me when I go? 
Meditation for the Day 
“Hallowed be Thy Name.” What does that mean to us? Here “name” 
is used in the sense of “spirit.” The words mean praise to God 
for His spirit in the world, making us better. We should be 
especially grateful for God’s spirit, which gives us the 
strength to overcome all that is base in our lives. His spirit 
is powerful. It can help us to live a conquering, abundant 
life. So we praise and thank Him for His spirit in our lives 
and in the lives of others. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may be grateful for God’s spirit in me. I pray 
that I may try to live in accordance with it.
===============================
 If any word has power, it follows that all words have power.
 It means that every word which we here, 
speak or think has some power.

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

Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.

There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 206 Insights
Review:
 “I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.”
“Salvation of the world depends on me.”
 
I will not see the world as free until I see myself as free. That is why salvation of the world depends on me. To be free means to be without limit. God’s gifts are given without limit and so His gifts are the gift of freedom.
 
To know His gifts I must give them as they were given, freely and without limit. If I try to be selective about who will receive my gifts, I have lost awareness of What I am as God created me. God created me limitless and free. I cannot limit my gifts without also limiting myself.
 
I was created as Love, which by Its nature gives without limit. I cannot know the Love I am if I believe some are more worthy of Love than others. If I believe withholding love in certain situations is justified, then I have forgotten what Love is and What I am. Where God would have His gifts be is everywhere, because He is limitless. That is why it is important for me to extend Love all the time to all. That is how I save the world and myself.
 
Today I ask the Holy Spirit to help me see with His vision and offer Love in every circumstance so I may remember I am not a body I am free. I am still as God created me.
 
As an extension of God’s Love, we have one function, and that function is to extend God’s universal Love as our Father does. Our function is not to try to change Love, but to be one with It.
 
In Lesson 186 Jesus tells us, “If God’s Voice assures you that salvation needs your part, and that the whole depends on you, be sure that it is so…. Yet are the humble free to hear the Voice Which tells them what they are, and what to do.” (5:4,6)
 
We are learning we cannot fail when we ask only for God’s Will for us. God’s Will for us is shared by everyone. We are all in the same boat together. We are all Love and nothing else. We all are the salvation of the world as we wake up to the eternal truth.
==========================
Life sleeps in the crude earth, dreams Beauty in the flowers, wakes with power in the animals, and in man has consciousness of infinite possibilities. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 
=================
“So I be written in the Book of Love.
 I do not care about that Book Above.
 Erase my name, or write it as you will. 
So I be written in the Book of Love.” 
― Omar Khayyám
