Eye Opener (1950)
 
Famous Last Words: “If I had one more drink, I could cut off.” “Lord, get me off this one and I’ll never touch another drop.” “A glass of beer won’t hurt me.” “I’m sober, ain’t I? I don’t need the meetings.” The list is too long to go on.
 
We constantly sell ourselves a phony bill of goods and then cry our eyes out when we find we have gypped ourselves, but – it wasn’t our fault, understand? If the wife hadn’t —,
 if the boss hadn’t —, if, if ,,,,,,,

DAILY REFLECTIONS
November 10,2016
A SENSE OF BELONGING
Perhaps one of the greatest rewards of meditation and prayer is the sense of belonging that comes to us.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 105
That’s what it is — belonging! After a session of meditation I knew that the feeling I was experiencing was a sense of belonging because I was so relaxed. I felt quieter inside, more willing to discard little irritations. I appreciated my sense of humor. What I also experience in my daily practice is the sheer pleasure of belonging to the creative flow of God’s world. How propitious for us that prayer and meditation are written right into our A.A. way of life.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“No one is forced to accept truth, but he must then accept the
alternative of living with his hidden terrors.”
Cosmic Command, # 1580
=======================
I have learned Silence from the talkative, 
Toleration from the intolerant and kindness
 from the unkind; yet, strange,
I am ungrateful to those teachers. 
Khalil Gibran 
There is within every individual which 
partakes of the nature of the Universal 
wholeness and that insofar as it operates – is God. 
The science of Mind page 33 
Affirmation:
Every encounter is a Holy One. 
I am sent nothing but angels.

In Step Eight, we continued our housecleaning, for we saw that we were 
not only in conflict with ourselves, but also with people and situations in 
the world in which we lived.  We had to begin to make our peace, and so 
we listed the people we had harmed and became willing to set things right.
— Twelve Steps And Twelve Traditions, page 108
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, 
learning from failure.
— General Colin Powell
When I choose fear, I choose darkness and all of its inherent limitations. 
When I choose Love, I choose Light and all of its infinite possibilities. 
Today, I choose Love.
— Steven Jager

Let the waters settle and you will see 
the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being.
~Rumi


Lesson 313
Now let a new perception come to me.
Father, there is a vision which beholds all things as sinless, so that fear has gone, and where it was is love invited in. And love will come wherever it is asked. This vision is Your gift. The eyes of Christ look on a world forgiven. In His sight are all its sins forgiven, for He sees no sin in anything He looks upon. Now let His true perception come to me, that I may waken from the dream of sin and look within upon my sinlessness, which You have kept completely undefiled upon the altar to Your holy Son, the Self with which I would identify.
 
Let us today behold each other in the sight of Christ. How beautiful we are! How holy and how loving! Brother, come and join with me today. We save the world when we have joined. For in our vision it becomes as holy as the light in us.
==========================
Love is this silent conversation between two hearts.
Paramahansa Yogananda 
========================
I have not asked for life.
But I try to accept whatever
life brings without surprise.
And I shall depart again without having
questioned anyone about my strange
stay here on earth.
Omar Khayyam
 


“Prejudices of any kind are the destroyers
of human happiness & welfare.”
 Bahá’u’lláh
