Eye Opener (1950)
The only impossible thing in the world is a full conception of the things that are possible.
Within the limits of our lifetime, we have seen many marvels: the transmission of sound and pictures across the continent without visible means; we cook and freeze with the same unit of energy; man can now exert a force of 20,000 tons simply by pushing a button. Nothing seems beyond the vision of the scientist in his study and use of the unlimited forces of Nature.
The power of God, however, is still virgin territory. Man hasn’t scratched the surface in his efforts to put this force to work for man. When this is accomplished, the word “impossible” will not be in anybody’s dictionary.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 A good king ruled over a great castle. Over the
years many enemy armies tried to break down the walls and loot
the castle, but all met defeat. No one knew the secret of the
king’s strength and serenity. But one day at a royal ceremony
he was asked about his secret for success. The king replied,
‘I know more about my castle than the enemy knows.”‘ That is
also your great secret for quiet success with people – learn
all about your castle – your own mind.”

Thought for the Day
We alcoholics are fortunate to be living in a day and age when there is such a thing as Alcoholics Anonymous. Before A.A. came into being, there was very little hope for the alcoholic. A.A. is a great rebuilder of human wreckage. It takes men and women whose personality problem expresses itself in alcoholism and offers them a program that, if they are willing to accept it, allows them not only to get sober, but also to find a much better way of living. Have I found a better way of living?
Meditation for the Day
Very quietly God speaks through your thoughts and feelings. Heed the Divine voice of your conscience. Listen for this and you will never be disappointed in i the results in your life. Listen for this small, still voice and your tired nerves will become rested. The Divine voice comes to you as strength as well as tenderness, as power as well as restfulness. Your moral strength derives its effectiveness from the power that comes when you listen patiently for the still, small voice.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may listen for the still, small voice of God. I pray that I may obey the leading of my conscience.
An attitude of gratitude is most 
salutary & bespeaks the realization 
that we are now in Heaven.

Big Book Quote ^*~*~*~*~*
“We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality
safe and protected. We have not even sworn off. Instead, the problem
has been removed. It does not exist for us. We are neither cocky nor
are we afraid. That is our experience. That is how we react so long
as we keep in fit spiritual condition.”
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, Into Action, Page 85~
What comes, will go.
What is found, will be lost again.
But what you are is beyond 
coming and going and beyond description.
You are It.
ACIM Workbook Lesson 156 Insights
“I walk with God in perfect holiness.”
 Who walks with me? God. I am perfectly safe. Who walks with me? God, Whose holiness surrounds me. Surrounded by holiness, I must be holy and all there is to see is holiness. Who walks with me? God, Love. The Source of all Love is with me always. Lack of Love is an impossibility. When I remember Who walks with me, I feel perfectly safe and wholly loved. I am at peace, for I lack nothing.
     I walk with strength, because I walk with God. Nothing can threaten me because there is no strength but God’s. I walk with certainty because the changelessness of God walks with me. There can be no doubt where change is impossible. In quiet serenity, I feel the Light of God in me and I see that Light everywhere. No harm can come to me. Sin is impossible. Guilt is without cause and therefore does not exist.
     In the radiance of God’s Light, I see His Light in all my brothers. My only true response to everyone and everything is Love. That Love I share with all that is. Nothing but Love exists. As I remember this I rest contented in the Heart of God. I feel His blessing and I bless the world. I walk with God in perfect holiness.
     In this lesson Jesus reminds me that the key to salvation is in stepping back. Stepping back means letting go of my ideas of being a separate identity, an individual separate from the rest. Stepping back means being willing to let go of the meaning I have given to everything in this world. Stepping back means being willing to remember that I am still as God created me. I am still the Idea of Love in the Mind of Love.
     Ideas leave not their source. When I dream of a world of separate bodies, my true Identity does not change. I remain at Home in the Mind of God. In the dream I may experience many adventures in the world of separation and individuality, but I still remain in the Mind of God in truth. Stepping back means being willing to accept the truth. Dreams are just that, dreams. They are really nothing and nowhere. Love remains as It was created.
     My job today is to practice stepping back, letting go of trying to be something I am not. As I let go of the dream, the Light I am steps forward and I am able to see there is nothing but the Light. The Light is everywhere. Love is everywhere.
    In quiet let me step back today. Let me be willing to open to the truth. Let me remember I walk with God in perfect holiness. Everyone in the world is innocent. The truth about them is God. Ideas leave not their source. God is One. All that is real is of God and in God. The false ideas fall away as I move to step back and let the truth in me come forward. And then I will see the truth is everywhere and in everything I see.
    I am a spiritual Being, created by God. This is my true Identity. This Being is just the way God intended It to be. God created Me in Love, from Love, to be Love. This is my truth.
     I am not always consciously aware of this truth in my body life, but the truth doesn’t change because I am not aware of it. I am holy because God I was created that way. I can accept this and live in this confidence, regardless of what and how the world and this body appear at present. I need not change in any way the world and its appearance. I can only change my perception of it by being open to the holy perceptions of my True Self.
     Today I ask Holy Spirit to give me glimpses of holy perception so I may see that I walk with God in perfect holiness. Today I ask for confirmation of my true Identity. Today I ask to be shown my oneness with God in fresh new ways. Today I give myself to Holy Spirit for a refresh new vision and healing.
In the silence of your soul,
 in the Battle of your concentration,
 the romance with the Infinite it is endless.
