Eye Opener (1950)
 
Our reason is the creator of all our conditions of life, 
whether they be legitimate or illegitimate. 
We think ourselves into stormy and turbulent living
 just as surely as we think ourselves into peace and serenity.
 
Our stinking drinking was as much a product of our
stinking thinking as was our stinking thinking
the result of our stinking drinking.

Twenty Four Hours A Day JUNE 25,2016
Thought For The Day 
One of the most encouraging facts of life is that your 
weakness can become your greatest asset. Kites and airplanes 
rise against the wind. In climbing up a high mountain, we 
need the stony crags and rough places to aid us in our climb. 
So your weakness can become an asset if you will face it, 
examine it, and trace it to its origin. Set it in the very 
center of your mind. No weakness, such as drinking, ever 
turned into an asset until it was first fairly faced. Am I 
making my weakness my greatest asset? 
Meditation For The Day 
Whenever we seek to worship God, we think of the great 
universe that God rules over, of creation, of mighty law 
and order throughout the universe. Then we feel the awe 
that precedes worship. I too must feel awe, feel the desire 
to worship God in wondering amazement. My mind is in a box 
of space and time and it is so made that I cannot conceive 
of what is beyond space or time, the limitless and the eternal. 
But I know that there must be something beyond space and time, 
and that something must be the limitless and eternal Power 
behind the universe. I also know that I can experience that 
Power in my life. 
Prayer For The Day 
I pray that I may accept the limitless and eternal Spirit. 
I pray that It may express Itself in my life.

O Light and Love within me, thou art welcome.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 175 Insights
Review:
“God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“I give the miracles I have received.
I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.”
Which self will I identify with today — the false self or the real Self which is Love? Which self will I think is real today? If I identify with the false self, I will think that I have private thoughts. I will identify with the body. I will experience fear, loss, conflict and frustration. I will think that I am a victim and that something outside me is the source of my problems. I will think that I am separate from others and I will identify others with their bodies.
 
Today’s lesson reminds me that all of this is not true. Today’s lesson reminds me to identify with my real Self, which is Love. When I remember that Love is my true Home, fear becomes the stranger. I am open to receiving miracles from the Holy Spirit. I step back from the identity I once believed in. I leave my mind open to receive the healing touch of the Holy Spirit. And because minds are joined, I cannot help but give the miracles I have received.
 
Love by Its very nature gives all Love to all universally. There are no barriers in Love. There are no separate bodies. There is no gap between minds. There is only one Mind — the Mind of Love. There is only universal joining, universal giving, universal receiving, universal joy, universal happiness. All is one in Love.
 
What kind of a day will I choose to have today? Which mind will I serve, the false mind or the universal Mind of Love? It is my choice and I will receive the effects of that choice today.
 
 
All miracles have already been given to everyone. God withholds nothing, having given all of Himself in our Creation. The only reason we are not aware of the miracles we have been given is because we don’t appreciate and accept them. The made up images of this world have more appeal to us than the miracles given us through the Holy Spirit.
 
Step-by-step the Course is helping us see the valuelessness of the made up world that seems so real. The vision of innocence, holiness and wholeness is ours to claim in every instant. The moment we claim it, we will give it because in this vision is the recognition of our unity with all. By its very nature, this vision must be shared.
 
“I give the miracles I have received” implies that I have accepted the miracles I give. My job today is to walk with Holy Spirit as my Guide with an open mind and an open heart. As I am open to His lead, I will share His vision and receive the miracle of recognizing the face of Christ everywhere. With His vision there is no conflict, no threat, no thought of harm or loss, only the recognition of dear and treasured brothers everywhere I look. With His vision, I look past all behavior and see the Christ.
 
I cannot do this alone. The idea of being alone is a barrier to vision. But I am never alone in truth. No matter how much I identify with isolation and limitation in a separate body, the Holy Spirit is always in my mind, ready to share His vision. His vision shows me my real Home where fear is a stranger, unknown because loss is impossible in my real Home.
 
Today I dedicate myself to walking with the Holy Spirit as my Guide. All thoughts of lack or limitation I give to Him that I may be shown the truth beyond these false thoughts. My heart is filled with gratitude that I have within me the Guide to lead me Home.
==============================
Awaken yourself! Be anchored in the Spirit of God,
in the realization of the infinite being that flows 
like an ocean through all creation. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 
===========================
When once you hear the roses are in bloom,
Then is the time, my love, to pour the wine;
Houris and palaces and Heaven and Hell-
These are but fairy-tales, forget them all.” 
― Omar Khayyám
