DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
 
Somewhere we read that alcoholics made their own bedlam and then lied out of it. This has not been our experience. We made our own bedlam, it is true, but unfortunately we were usually stuck with it. Somehow we could never successfully lie out of it. Lying somehow always failed and on the few occasions when we did get by with one, we were forced to tax our feeble brains for the balance of our days to guard it and not expose ourselves. A liar must of necessity have a good memory, or he’s sunk.

But he had found God — and in finding God had found himself.

VITAL SUSTENANCE
Those of us who have come to make regular use of prayer would no more do without it than we would refuse air, food, or sunshine. And for the same reason. When we refuse air, light, or food, the body suffers. And when we turn away from meditation and prayer, we likewise deprive our minds, our emotions, and our intuitions of vitally needed support.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 97
Step Eleven doesn’t have to overwhelm me. Conscious contact with God can be as simple, and as profound, as conscious contact with another human being. I can smile. I can listen. I can forgive. Every encounter with another is an opportunity for prayer, for acknowledging God’s presence within me.
Today I can bring myself a little closer to my Higher Power. The more I choose to seek the beauty of God’s work in other people, the more certain of His presence I will become.

There is a vast difference between “holding thoughts 
“and holding things in thought.
One is an attempt at an impossible coercion; 
the other is a mental acceptance. 
The Science of Mind page page 399

In each moment the fire rages, it will burn away a hundred veils.
And carry you a thousand steps toward your goal.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Lesson 218
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
(198) Only my condemnation injures me.
My condemnation keeps my vision dark, and through my
sightless eyes I cannot see the vision of my glory. 
Yet today I can behold this glory and be glad.
 
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
============================
 Soul unfoldment brings out the divine qualities 
of understanding, patience,. thoughtfulness, love.
 Paramahansa Yogananda


 
My friend, let’s not think of tomorrow, 
but let’s enjoy this fleeting moment of life.
Omar Khayyam
 
 
Sometimes I want to ask God why He allows
 poverty, famine, and injustice when He could 
do something about it, 
but I’m afraid he might just ask me the same question. 
Bahá’u’lláh
