Eye Opener (1950)
The sooner we alcoholics realize the fact that 
of sobriety by itself is not enough to insure real living, 
the better off we will be.
 
For us to emerge from our shell and then cease
 all growth is to stagnate, and stagnation is death
 itself to an alcoholic. Everything on this planet has
 a part in the Grand Scheme and unless we discover
 and act our little part, we are dead, and decay has already set in.
 
It is contrary to the laws of Nature for man to stand still. 
We either go ahead or we go back.

Vernon Howard’s  SECRETS OF LIFE (R)
 
Our freedom can be measured by the number 
of things we can walk away from.

ACTIVE, NOT PASSIVE
Man is supposed to think, and act. He wasn’t made in God’s image to be an automaton.
— AS BILL SEES IT, p. 55
Before I joined A.A., I often did not think, and reacted to people and situations. When not reacting I acted in a mechanical fashion. After joining A.A., I started seeking daily guidance from a Power greater than myself, and learning to listen for that guidance. Then I began to make decisions and act on them, rather than react to them. The results have been constructive; I no longer allow others to make decisions for me and then criticize me for it.
Today—and every day—with a heart full of gratitude, and a desire for God’s will to be done through me, my life is worth sharing, especially with my fellow alcoholics! Above all, if I do not make a religion out of anything, even A.A., then I can be an open channel for God’s expression.

Thought should tend more and more toward an
affirmative attitude of mind that is positive,
stable and-above all else a real unity of the Spirit
 that is already complete and perfect.

tell my father she was going to Weight Watchers, 
because my father thought that we should fix our own problems.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES COMMENTARY
(VARIOUS WRITERS)
ACIM Workbook Lesson 82 Insights
Review: “The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.”
and “Let me not forget my function.
My function is to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit, I am able to see through the eyes of Christ. Christ is One and includes the whole Sonship. As I am able to see the Christ, I am remembering the truth. When I remember the truth, I extend peace to the whole Sonship. This is my one true function. This is why I am here. Nothing else matters.
 
Let me remember my function. Let me feel the happiness that comes with joining with my true Nature and the true Nature of everyone. Today is the day of practicing this.
 
When I let go of judgment or forgive, I open the door to seeing the Light in my brother, the same Light that is in me. As I see this, I recognize our unity and conflict disappears. This is how I accept my Self and experience the joy that God wills be mine.
 
Judgment blinds me to the Light. The Light is always there, but if I insist on seeing others as different from me, which is what judgment does, I cannot see the Light that I share with everyone. It’s like walking around in a well lit room with my eyes closed, wondering why I can’t see. Forgiveness is how I open my eyes to see the Light.
 
Today if I notice even a twinge of irritation or discontent with someone’s words or behavior, let me remind myself that this is an opportunity for me to let go of judgment and see the Light that we share. This is how I fulfill my function. This is how I experience the joy of being the Love that joins me with all that Is. This is how I experience everyone as my Friend. This is how I bring peace to the world. Let me see everyone as my brother and my friend. Let the Love that I am embrace them all.
