OUR GROUP 23 OF MORNING HOTSHOTS March 10,2016

DAILIES

Eye Opener (1950)
We alcoholics know that one drink is too much and a barrel isn’t enough. 
That first drink starts the compulsion to drink.
  Suppressing desires can become a habit just as their satisfaction does.
 Each time we Say “NO,” we weaken the old habit and strengthen the new.

  The efforts to satisfy our desires led us to the excesses that brought about our alcoholism. 
So let us follow the advise of John Stuart Mill and “learn to seek our happiness by limiting our desires,
 rather than attempting to satisfy them.”

“You have direct access to everything you need for self-awakening,
including a fresh supply of energy.”

Thought for the Day March 10, 2016Thought for the Day
We also strengthen our faith by working with other alcoholics and finding that we can do nothing ourselves to help them, except to tell them our own story of how we found the way out. If the other person is helped, it’s by the grace of God and not by what we do or say. Our own faith is strengthened when we see another alcoholic find sobriety by turning to God. And finally we strengthen our faith by having quiet times every morning.
Do I ask God in this quiet time for the strength to stay sober this day?

Meditation for the Day
My five senses are my means of communication with the material world. They are the links between my physical life and the material manifestations around me. But I must sever all connections with the material world when I wish to hold communion with the Great Spirit of the universe. I have to hush my mind and bid all my senses be still, before I can become attuned to receive the music of the heavenly spheres.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may get my spirit in tune with the Spirit of the universe. I pray that through faith and communion with Him I may receive the strength I need.

A DAILY REPRIEVE
What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.    

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 85 
I called through your door,
 “the Mystics are gathering in the street. 
Come out!”
 “Leave me alone. I’m sick.” 
“I don’t care if you’re dead! 
Jesus is here, 
and he wants to resurrect somebody!”

ACIM Workbook Lesson 69 Insights
My grievances hide the light of the world in me.”
Making separation real hides the Light of our oneness from my awareness. Making separation real is a grievance, symbolized by the clouds. If I focus on the clouds, I do not see past them. If I am willing to pass by the clouds and be led to the Light, the Light is what I will find.

This is my most important function, my only function. I need to hear the truth about myself and see past the veil of darkness that keeps the Light concealed as frequently as possible. As I accept the Light, I remember that all is well and there are no problems, only healing solutions. There is no mad dash to accomplish this or that out of a sense of lack

It is so interesting to see the marvelous evolution of
complex matter from the singular consciousness of spirit. 
How intricate it is, in yet so simple.
