Eye Opener (1950)
Opportunity is found within ourselves and nowhere else; 
the place that provides the greatest opportunity for our mental,
moral and physical welfare.
Only when we are mentally and physically fit are we able
to recognize and grasp material opportunities when they present themselves.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 

“Here are ten parallels between the novel
‘Dracula’ and in 
everyone’s daily life:
2. In Dracula, he can victimize only the weak and the ignorant and the foolish and the unspiritual. In life, everyone can recall griefs caused by one’s own senselessness and egotism.”
SOLVED The Mystery of Life, p. 66

Thought for the Day 
You can prove to yourself that life is basically and 
fundamentally an inner attitude. just try to remember 
what troubled you most a week ago. You probably will find 
it difficult to remember. Why then should you unduly worry 
or fret over the problems that arise today? Your attitude 
toward them can be changed by putting yourself and your 
problems in God’s hands and trusting Him to see that 
everything will turn out all right, provided you are 
trying to do the right thing. Your changed mental attitude 
toward your problems relieves you of their burden and you 
can face them without fear. Has my mental attitude changed? 
Meditation for the Day 
You cannot see the future. It’s a blessing that you cannot. 
You could not bear to know all the future. That is why God 
only reveals it to you day by day. The first step each day 
is to lay your will before God as an offering, ready for God 
to do what is best for you. Be sure that, if you trust God, 
what He does for you will be for the best. The second step 
is to be confident that God is powerful enough to do anything 
He wills, and that no miracle in human lives is impossible 
with Him. Then leave the future to God. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may gladly leave my future in God’s hands. 
I pray that I may be confident that good things will happen, 
as long as I am on the right path. 
Train yourself to think what you wish to think; be
 what you wish to be, feel what you wish to feel,
 and place no limit on principal!

And then he discovers that through the divine paradox of this kind of
giving he has found his own reward, whether or not his brother has yet
received anything. His own character may still be gravely defective,
but he somehow knows that God has enabled him to make a mighty
beginning, and he senses that he stands at the edge of new mysteries,
joys, and experiences of which he had never before dreamed.

You’re in my eyes.
 How else could I see light? 
You’re in my brain. 
This wild joy.
 If love did not live in matter, 
how would any place have any hold on anyone?

ACIM Workbook Lesson 178 Insights
“God is but Love and therefore so am I.”
“Let not my mind deny the Thought of God.
I am entrusted with the gifts of God.”
Since God is but Love, the Thought of God must be Love. Thus today’s lesson is reminding me to not deny Love. Since God is but Love, His gifts must be gifts of Love. Because Love always extends Itself, when I am entrusted with God’s gift of Love, God has full confidence in me to extend that Love. That is what the Son of God does. The one Son of God is Love’s extension and is given God’s full creative ability to extend that Love.
As I practice letting go of denying Love, which means looking at my barriers to Love and taking them to the Holy Spirit to be removed, I will see Love has always been there. It is I who have hidden it from my awareness. I am being asked here to lay down all resistance to being as I was created.
It is time to let go of the search for specialness and join with my real Identity, God’s Love. This is where my real happiness lies. This is where I find joyous fulfillment and deep gratitude. I ask the Holy Spirit for His vision and I see the Light of Christ shining in the faces of all my brothers. I feel the joy of being with friends everywhere. There are no enemies, no adversaries, no competitors. Only precious companions along a path of Light.
Happiness is found in sharing the journey of awakening. Happiness is found in seeing a brother recognize his Light, as I recognize mine. Gratitude is multiplied each time a shadow of guilt is forgiven and the Light of Love is released to be Itself.
Holy Spirit, help me to lay aside all judgments today and see the Light of Love everywhere I look. Help me to bless as I have been blessed by Your holy Presence in my mind.
Dear God, let me not deny Your oneness today. I open to Your Thoughts today. I open to Your Love. These are Your gifts and I would accept them today. Your gifts are all I have. Your gifts are all I am. There is no opposite to Your Love and I would remember that today.
“Only precious companions along a path of light.” That is going to be my guide today. What a perfect thought to direct my actions. How can I be angry or frustrated with others if I see them as my precious companions? How can I feel lonely when I am literally surrounded by precious companions.

Life has a bright side and a dark side, 
for the world of relativity is composed of light and shadows….
Look only for the good in everything, 
that you absorb the quality of beauty. 
Paramahansa Yogananda
“When Allah created me, he knew that I
would drink a lot of wine. So if I didn’t, the
omniscience of Allah would stand on its head.” 
― Omar Khayyám, Rubaiyat de Omar Khayyam…
