DAILIES
 
 Eye Opener (1950)
When we alcoholics arrived at that point in our 
drinking careers that we commonly call “our bottom;”
when difficulties were pouring in from every side; 
when there was no longer any room left to retreat 
and all our defenses had crumbled – 
we found that we had no other alternative but take
the last desperate effort of the totally beaten.
 
AA proved, as history has often done, that the
 best defense is a strong offense.
===============================
Even so has God restored us all to our right minds.

OVERCOMING LONELINESS
Almost without exception, alcoholics are tortured by loneliness. Even before our drinking got bad and people began to cut us off, nearly all of us suffered the feeling that we didn’t quite belong.
— AS BILL SEES IT, p. 90
The agonies and the void that I often felt inside occur less and less frequently in my life today. I have learned to cope with solitude. It is only when I am alone and calm that I am able to communicate with God, for He cannot reach me when I am in turmoil. It is good to maintain contact with God at all times, but it is absolutely essential that, when everything seems to go wrong, I maintain that contact through prayer and meditation.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“Higher consciousness has power to speak to and subdue
tormenting thoughts.”
Cosmic Command, # 542
================
Thought creates in the subjective, 
in which the idea is accepted and poured,
 and sets power in Motion in accordance with the thought.
 The science of Mind page 30 
 
 
 
Rise. Move around the center
 as pilgrims wind the Kaaba. 
 
Being still is how one clay Clod
 sticks to another and sleep, 
 
while movement wakes us up 
and unlocks new blessings.
Rumi
 
 
A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Lesson 220
I am not a body. I am free,
For I am still as God created me.
(200) There is no peace except the peace of God.
Let me not wander from the way of peace, for I am lost on
other roads than this. But let me follow Him Who leads me 
home, and peace is certain as the Love of God.
 
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
========================
  The wise… Are not tossed with the ups and downs
 of the waves of happiness and misery.
They dive deep into the Spirit- ocean of bliss, 
avoiding the storms of delusion, 
the waves of change that rage on the surface of human consciousness.
Paramahansa Yogananda
 
“Why was I born, when will I die?
Who can change the day of his birth,
who has a say in the day of his death?
Come, my beloved, I want to ask the spirit
of the wine to make me forget that we
shall never understand.” 
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

“God has created the world as 1 … 
the boundaries are marked out by man. 
All are of 1 family, 1 race; all are human beings.”
 Bahá’u’lláh
