Eye Opener (1950)
There is no man alive who is a bigger fool than he who knows everything – even God can’t teach such a one. This characteristic is common among alcoholics, and constitutes one of the greatest barriers to recovery. Our Program is best received by the humble heart and the attentive ear.
We must do a lot of “un-learning” before we are ready to start learning this new way of living.

Life had shrunk down to an endless awful now.

I can see the doubting God’s existence was no
 barrier to a spiritual experience.

We know that God lovingly watches over us. We know that when we turn to Him, all will be well with us, here and hereafter.
I pray for the willingness to remember that I am a child of God, a divine soul in human form, and that my most basic and urgent life-task is to accept, know, love and nurture myself. As I accept myself, I am accepting God’s will. As I know and love myself, I am knowing and loving God. As I nurture myself I am acting on God’s guidance.
I pray for the willingness to let go of my arrogant self-criticism, and to praise God by humbly accepting and caring for myself.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“I have a startling and delightful announcement for you. 
An announcement that will change, uplift and inspire everything from moment to
moment in your day. That announcement is, sin is unnecessary, badness
is pointless. To be tricky and devious has no needful place in your
life. Badness is as useless and pointless as wheels on a boat.
Anxiety, which is badness; hostility, which is badness; worry which
is badness simply does not form a requirement in your personal life.
You can live without being bad, without inflicting hostility on
Evil has no permanence. Sickness has nothing to back it up. It’s a
vapor that projects itself into your mind and, because you are
immature and confused, that vapor seems to form a bad, evil face,
countenance, and so you think that the vapor has eyes, nose, mouth,
the rest of the face, and you call it evil because you don’t understand it.
You yourself, out of your ignorance and your false belief in your
false existence, you yourself have created a force, a misused
energy; have taken natural, right elements within yourself and
distorted them for one reason: simply because you don’t know any
better. Now you can know better.”
from a talk given 3/28/1987
True leaders, I learned, have heart and Noble purpose. 
They draw strength from within to effect change in the wide world. 
Alyse Nelson 
The eyes Brighten with friendliness and good cheer, 
when animated by the light of love, joy, Faith or Noble purpose. 
The science of Mind page 231 
I joyfully claim my Noble purpose and step into it with gusto, Grace and greatness!
There is a way of breathing that’s a shame and 
a suffocation and there’s another way of expiring, 
a love breath, that lets you open infinitely. 
Lesson 214
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
(194)I place the future in the Hands of God.
The past is gone; the future is not yet. Now am I freed 
from both. For what God gives can only be for good. And 
I accept but what He gives as what belongs to me.
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
 Because God is Beauty, 
He created loveliness in the flowers that
they might speak of Him. 
More than anything else in nature
they hint of His presence.
 Paramahansa Yogananda
Drink wine. This is life eternal. 
This is all that youth will give you. 
It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends.
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Omar Khayyam

“Hear no evil, and see no evil, abase not thyself, neither sigh and weep. Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee, and magnify not the faults of others that thine own faults may not appear great; and wish not the abasement of anyone, that thine own abasement be not exposed. Live then the days of thy life, that are less than a fleeting moment, with thy mind stainless, thy heart unsullied, thy thoughts pure, and thy nature sanctified, so that, free and content, thou mayest put away this mortal frame, and repair unto the mystic paradise and abide in the eternal kingdom for evermore.”
