Eye Opener (1950)
If we mean it when we say, “Thy will be done,” then what God wills is what we will. Happy and sober will be the man or woman who acquires this frame of mind.
If you want all your prayers answered your way, then let your way be God’s way.
Too frequently we get God and Santa Claus mixed up.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“Recognize the recognizer. You have, each of you, within you at
this moment, a recognizer who can spot rightness at a glance, a
fast glance, a very fast glance.
But I want to tell you many, many valuable facts about the
recognizer within you and you. First of all, it is extremely
weak, wishy-washy. It is afraid of the virtues it beholds,
it fears being punished, it hangs back, it is passive, it
has no assertiveness to it, it has no strength. It can see
rightness – and I want to emphasize –
 it can see the difference between what is true and what is false, 
it can see it faster than a flash of lightning.
However, to have a weak wishy-washy uncertain recognizer can
do nothing for you to change you. The recognizer itself must
take on an additional force, wisdom, tenacity. The recognizer
that you now have, but which is so practically useless to you,
the recognizer of trueness must be changed from a weakling into
a dashing hero.
I’ve told you already a lot about the process of inner trans-
formation. I’ve given you an enormous clue that has escaped your
attention and your notice and has escaped your effort to do what
must be done with it. I’ve described the nature of your ability
to see and comprehend badness or goodness as it jumps up in front
of it, in a conversation, in a business proposal, in a male/female
relationship. It actually, factually knows what is spiritual and
what is virtuous, but it doesn’t want to do it, it doesn’t want to
be on the side of what is virtuous. 
And I gave you a number of reasons for it, 
one out of many being that it’s afraid that it’s going
to get punished and so the recognition of goodness sits back in the
crowd of people and hides itself in the crowd, not wanting to risk
the chance that the crowd of two hundred people might suddenly all
at once turn and look at the one who dared to stand up for truth
while all the hundreds of others were praising falsehood.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day JUNE 27, 2016
Thought for the Day 
If you can take your troubles as they come, if you can 
maintain your calm and composure amid pressing duties and 
unending engagements, if you can rise above the distressing 
and disturbing circumstances in which you are set down, you 
have discovered a priceless secret of daily living. Even if 
you are forced to go through life weighed down by some 
inescapable misfortune or handicap and yet live each day as 
it comes with poise and peace of mind, you have succeeded 
where most people have failed. You have wrought a greater 
achievement than a person who rules a nation. Have I achieved 
poise and peace of mind? 
Meditation for the Day 
Take a blessing with you wherever you go. You have been 
blessed, so bless others. Such stores of blessings are 
awaiting you in the months and years that lie ahead. Pass 
on your blessings. Blessing can and does go around the world, 
passed on from one person to another. Shed a little blessing 
in the heart of one person. That person is cheered to pass it 
on, and so, God’s vitalizing, joy-giving message travels on. 
Be a transmitter of God’s blessings. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may pass on my blessings. I pray that they may 
flow into the lives of others. 
Love, peace and happiness. 
I am the spirit of Joy within me.

Review: “
God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“There is no death.The Son of God is free.
Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.”
The ego would have me believe that the time that we would be one with our Source is a long way off. The lesson today tells us that now we are one with God, Who is our Source. We are one now. I find it is helpful to think about that. We all are one with God now. God is Where we came from and God is Where we are now. Our real dwelling place is in Heaven with God. And we dwell in Heaven now with God. I find it helpful to think about the fact that we all are in Heaven now. We are all joined as one, now. It is not off in the future, but now.
Holy Spirit, I open my mind to You, that I may remember I am still one with my Source. I am still in Heaven along with everyone. There has never been any separation. I open my mind to You so I may remember this when I feel frustrated or afraid. I open my mind to You so Your healing Light will shine away all my false ideas of limitation and belief in a world of time and space.
Help my willingness to recognize the eternal truth. The Son of God is still one in God. The Life we all live in God is eternal happiness. Let me not try to make something else real. Help me lay down my foolish dreams of being separate from God and my brother. The Son of God is still one with God. All That God created is still Love and nothing else. Holy Spirit, thank You for holding the Light and helping my foolish dreams fall away. Thank You.
God is eternal Life. The belief in death is an attempt to limit God and therefore is a fantasy that could never be true. All the things I see in the world that seem to have the potential to harm me or change me in any way are symbols of belief in death. They represent the idea that it is possible to change God.
If I remain one with an unchangeable, eternal Source, then it is impossible I could be changed. I am as changeless as my Source. As I allow myself to fully accept this fact, it brings me great comfort. In truth I am invulnerable. There is nothing to fear. There is nothing to feel guilty about because I have not done the impossible. I have not changed God nor His Son. My brother, Who is the Son of God along with me, shares the Son’s invulnerability, his changelessness. Therefore I could no more harm my brother than I could be harmed. There is no death. The Son of God is free.
As I can fully accept this idea, I can forgive myself for what I thought I did but which never happened. As I release myself, I release my brother, for I no longer feel a need to project my perceived guilt upon another.
My perfect safety lies in my oneness with my Source. Here there is no death. Here there is no limitation. I am free. I need not worry about what may come tomorrow nor fear consequences of something I think happened in the past. I am perfectly safe now in my changeless, eternal Source. My Source is my Home and I am free.
Everything beautiful is found in God:
 Health of the body; peace of mind, 
and the ever-changing new joy of the soul.
Paramahansa Yogananda 
“There are too many tears in my eyes!
The fires of Hell are no more than sparks of fire
as compared to the flames that consume me inside.
Paradise? For me it means
a moment of peace.” 
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
