DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
When the wife would take me to task in my drinking days,
I would soon show her who was boss of the establishment.
I would tell her in no uncertain terms that, 
“When I ceased being Captain of the ship, I would sink it.”
 
Oh, yes, I was Captain, but somehow the ship was continually on the rocks.
 It wasn’t my fault, understand; the wind and the waves were always against me.
 
Now I have resigned my commission as Captain, 
I have a new Navigator and my ship keeps pretty well on its course.
 I’m only a deck hand now, but I’m happier with less responsibility 
and I am confident it’s much safer.
===============================
When the thought was expressed that 
there might be a God personal to me 
this feeling was intensified.
BB Bill’s Story, p.12 

DAILY REFLECTIONS
November 23,2016
“HOLD YOUR FACE TO THE LIGHT”
Believe more deeply. Hold your face up to the Light, even though for the moment you do not see.
— AS BILL SEES IT, p. 3
One Sunday in October, during my morning meditation, I glanced out the window at the ash tree in our front yard. At once I was overwhelmed by its magnificent, golden color! As I stared in awe at God’s work of art, the leaves began to fall and, within minutes, the branches were bare. Sadness came over me as I thought of the winter months ahead, but just as I was reflecting on autumn’s annual process, God’s message came through. Like the trees, stripped of their leaves in the fall, sprout new blossoms in the spring, I had had my compulsive, selfish ways removed by God in order for me to blossom into a sober, joyful member of A.A. Thank you, God, for the changing seasons and for my ever-changing life.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“Since it is necessary to select a single word to indicate
the Higher Force covered in this book, I choose to call it
the Supermind.
 
The definition of Supermind is not complex; it is quite simple.
I mean the mental faculty which is above and beyond conditioned
human thought. It is the same thing as awareness, consciousness,
esoteric thinking. It is what an Eastern mystic would call the
silent mind, or what the New Testament calls the _Kingdom of
Heaven within. It is your true self. Quite simply, it is the
force within every man that is as high above the ordinary mind
as the sky is above earth.”
The Power of your Supermind, Chap. 1, p. 2
===================================
The Gates of Heaven are open. 
We are on the threshold but we 
refused to enter.
 “Ernest Holmes, New Horizons” 
Affirmation:
I know who I am; therefore, I am free. 
 
 
I have lived on the lip of insanity,
wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door.
It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside! 
~Rumi
 

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 226
My home awaits me. I will hasten there.
If I so choose, I can depart this world entirely. It is not death which makes this possible, but it is change of mind about the purpose of the world. If I believe it has a value as I see it now, so will it still remain for me. But if I see no value in the world as I behold it, nothing that I want to keep as mine or search for as a goal, it will depart from me. For I have not sought for illusions to replace the truth.
 
Father, my home awaits my glad return. Your Arms are open and I hear Your Voice. What need have I to linger in a place of vain desires and of shattered dreams, when Heaven can so easily be mine?
=========================
In this new year I am a new person.
And I shall change my consciousness
 again and again until I have driven away
 all the darkness of ignorance and manifested 
the shining light of Spirit in Whose image I am made.
 Paramahansa Yogananda

“Into this Universe, and why not knowing,
Nor whence, like Water willy-nilly flowing;
And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,
I know not whither, willy-nilly blowing.” 
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
 
“Why exhibit such greed in amassing the 
treasures of the earth when your days are numbered?” 
Bahá’u’lláh
