Eye Opener (1950)
It takes very much more skill to erect a house than it does to tear one down.
 Jesus of Nazareth could be crucified, but His teachings could not be killed. 
His influence today exceeds that of all the Caesars, the Hannibals,
 the Napoleons and the Alexanders rolled into one.
 
These elementary truths were taught in differing forms 
by other religious teachers before and after His time. 
The principles of the Golden Rule are as old as civilization,
 for it is the very basis of civilization.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“An awakened man has a unique relationship with society. He is like
a spectator at a football match who knows all about the game but who
does not play himself. Having risen above the disastrous error of
taking sides, he is unconcerned with winning or losing. It is his
deep insight into the game which makes him valuable to those who are
tired of the kind of winning which soon turns to losing. He shows them
a totally new kind of winning, which is not a contest, but an undivided
path.”
Esoteric Mind Power, p. 40

Twenty Four Hours A Day JUNE 26, 2016
Thought for the Day 
We must know the nature of our weakness before we can 
determine how to deal with it. When we are honest about its 
presence, we may discover that it is imaginary and can be 
overcome by a change of thinking. We admit that we are 
alcoholics and we would be foolish if we refused to accept 
our handicap and do something about it. So by honestly facing 
our weakness and keeping ever present the knowledge that for 
us alcoholism is a disease with which we are afflicted, we 
can take the necessary steps to arrest it. Have I fully 
accepted my handicap? 
Meditation for the Day 
There is a proper time for everything. I must learn not to 
do things at the wrong time, that is, before I am ready or 
before conditions are right. it is always a temptation to do 
something at once, instead of waiting until the proper time. 
Timing is important. I must learn, in the little daily 
situations of life, to delay action until I am sure that I 
am doing the right thing at the right time. So many lives
lack balance and timing. In the momentous decisions and 
crises of life, they may ask God’s guidance, but into the
small situations of life, they rush alone. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may delay action until I feel that I am doing 
the right thing. I pray that I may not rush in alone.
===============================
 Love, My Love, how wonderful thou art. 
I am open to receive thy great blessing.

Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, 
and that depends upon how much he has polished it. 
Whoever has polished it more sees more – 
more unseen forms become manifest to him.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 176 Insights
Review:
“God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“Give me your blessing, holy Son of God.
I am as God created me.”
“Give me your blessing, holy Son of God” is not asking my brother to do anything. It is really an affirmation to myself that I want to see the face of Christ in my brother. It is through this vision that I receive his blessing. I have had moments when my heart was filled to overflowing with Love. In these moments Love reached out through me to my brothers in warm embrace. I saw each as my friend. All barriers faded. And the more I allowed the Love to extend, the more my heart overflowed.
 
I believe this is a taste of what it means to accept my holy brother’s blessing. In these times of overflowing Love, I feel perfectly safe and at peace. There is no holding back, because there is no sense of vulnerability and hence no need to protect. The Course is encouraging me to let this be a daily and hourly and moment by moment experience. It reflects Heaven, where there are no limits and no boundaries.
 
Holy Spirit, help me open my heart today to the Love that has been given me, that I may share It with all the world. Let me see the Light in my brother and reflect his Light back to him, that we may both see the Light we share.
 
 
We wake up from this dream of separation as we are willing to look past bodies to the Light of God we all share. It is through opening to the truth of the Light in our brother that we remember that we are still as God created us. We remember that nothing has changed. We are still Love and our brother is still Love. The dream of separation is not true. The Light of God is all there is to see.
 
This is my practice today. I see the Light of God by making the decision to be open to the truth. The Light of God is always there. It has always been there and will always be there. When I recognize it is there depends on my willingness to recognize the truth.
 
If I want to see bodies, if I want to see separation, that is what I will see. So today I will work on my willingness to see the truth about my brother, and in the process, I find the truth about myself.
 
I choose to make today a happy one by opening to God’s truth. It is everywhere and all around me. How willing am I to see it today?

The soul remains without change or motion, just as a man watching the dancing, changing waves of the ocean remains himself unchanged.

and think of all the civilizations
the moon has seen passing by.”
