 Eye Opener (1950)
The span of human life is such a small part of eternity that the length of your life, whether it be 20 years or 100, is of no moment. Yet the lifespan of some men has, and will continue to have, great influence upon many succeeding generations.
If you can by one single act do something that will benefit just one person 50 years from now, you will have done more than millions who have before you. Few leave anything to posterity when they die that will outlive their tombstone.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   
“The person who listens persistently for the ring of truth will
find it within himself.”
Inspire Yourself, p. 28

Thought for the Day
We can depend on those members of any group who have gone all out for the program. They come to meetings. They work with other alcoholics. We don’t have to worry about their slipping. They’re loyal members of the group. I’m trying to be a loyal member of the group. When I’m tempted to take a drink, I tell myself that if I did I’d be letting down the other members who are the best friends I have. Am I going to let them down, if I can help it?
Meditation for the Day
Wherever there is true fellowship and love between people, God’s spirit is always there as the Divine Third. In all human relationships, the Divine Spirit is what brings them together. When a life is changed through the channel of another person, it is God, the Divine Third, who always makes the change, using the person as a means. The moving power behind all spiritual things, all personal relationships between people is God, the Divine Third, who is always there. No personal relationships can be entirely right without the presence of God’s spirit. 
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may be used as a channel by God’s spirit. I pray that I may feel that the Divine Third is always there to help me.
We must learn to think in the absolute. 
This means to think independently of any given experienced effect.

When people presented us with spiritual approaches, how frequently 
did we all say, “I wish I had what that man has. I’m sure it would work 
if I could only believe as he believes. But I cannot accept as surely 
true the many articles of faith which are so plain to him.”
— Alcoholics Anonymous, page 47
 If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. 
Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it. 
ACIM Workbook Lesson 131 Insights
“No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.”
   Jesus is very encouraging in this lesson. He encourages me to seek to reach the truth. He encourages me not to give up. He tells me I cannot fail. He gives me a very helpful bridge, a process, that helps me take baby steps towards opening my mind to the truth. He helps me see the senselessness of the world I think is real. He reminds me where true value lies. He reminds me that I am still in Heaven where God created me and that I cannot really change that. He reminds me that I am only dreaming a dream of being separate from God, from Heaven and that this dream is not what I really want.
  He encourages me to seek for Heaven, for the truth is that we all are still extensions of God and we have not changed that Reality. He encourages me to sink below the images I normally fill my mind with to the truth. He tells me I cannot fail and invites me to open the door to a world of Light where nothing has changed and I am one with all that is, which is Love or God. He helps me feel God’s strength. He helps me be aware of the safety and stability and Love, peace and joy which lie in my true Nature. He reminds me that this alone is true. He encourages me to rest in this truth often.
Find the ever sought for solace in the silence of the soul….
Problems that have seemed insoluble will unravel their
mysteries in nook of solitary thoughtfulness.
 Paramahansa Yogananda
