Eye Opener (1950)
When God makes a tree, it is exactly the species,
 size and shape He intended it to be. 
Nothing the tree can do will alter it in the slightest degree.
 
God, however, in His Wisdom, created man with all perfection,
yet allows him to make of himself what he will. 
He gave us independent minds and wills because
He intended that we,
the highest form of all living beings, 
should work out our own mental and
moral evolution from morality to immortality.

Twenty Four Hours A Day MAY 9,2016
Thought for the Day
We alcoholics used so little self-control when we were drinking, we were so absolutely selfish, that it does us good to give up something once in a while. Using self-discipline and denying ourselves a few things is good for us. At first, giving up liquor is a big enough job for all of us, even with God’s help. But later on, we can practice self-discipline in other ways to keep a firm grip on our minds so that we don’t start any wishful thinking. If we daydream too much, we’ll be in danger of slipping. Am I practicing enough self-discipline? 
Meditation for the Day
In material things, you must rely on your own wisdom and that of others. In spiritual things, you cannot rely so much on your own wisdom as on God’s guidance. In dealing with personalities, it is a mistake to step out too much m your own. You must try to be guided by God in all human relationships. You cannot accomplish much of value in dealing with people until God knows you are ready. You alone do not have the power or wisdom to put things right between people. You must rely on God to help you in these vital matters.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may rely on God in dealing with people’s problems. I pray that I may try to follow His guidance in all personal relationships.
====================================

 We cannot live a choice-less life.
 Every day, every moment, 
every second, 
there is choice. 
If it were not so we would not be individuals.
The science of Mind page 143 
 


We came to believe that a Higher Power could restore us to sanity when 
we became willing to practice A.A.’s Twelve Steps. In short, we chose to `become willing’, and no better choice did we ever make.
 — As Bill Sees It
 There is great meaning in life for those who are willing to journey. 
 — Jim England
All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired, although not in the hour or in the measure, or the very thing which they ask. Yet they will obtain something greater and more glorious than they had dared to ask. 
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 129 Insights
“Beyond this world there is a world I want.”
   In paragraph 7 of this lesson, I love the symbol of Light given in this exercise. In the physical world, the experience of light is the closest approximation to the experience of Spirit. Light always joins with light. It never defends against “other” Light. It always merges with it, joins with it, just as Spirit always joins with Spirit, being one.
   I visualized the many points of Light and saw them expand and join into one ocean of Light in front of me that extended as far as I could see. I wanted to join with that Light, so I dove into It, like diving into an ocean. I swam around in It, felt Its presence surrounding me, yet I was still not experiencing being one with the Light. I tried to sink into the Light, but still did not feel part of It.
  Then I began to see myself
