Eye Opener (1950)
The dollar is worth but about half its value of only a few years ago. 
Capital gains taxes have depreciated all properties by 25 percent.
 Moneys invested in stocks and bonds can be swept away between dawn and dark. 
The sound investment of today can be a white elephant on your hands tomorrow.
 
Your dollars invested in the rehabilitation of human souls are the only investment that can’t lose. 
The dividends are paid whether the project fails or not. This way you can’t fail to win.

DAILY REFLECTIONS NOV. 27,2016

THE PERILS OF THE LIMELIGHT
In the beginning, the press could not understand our refusal of all personal publicity. They were genuinely baffled by our insistence upon anonymity. Then they got the point. Here was something rare in the world—a society which said it wished to publicize its principles and its work, but not its individual members. The press was delighted with this attitude. Ever since, these friends have reported A.A. with an enthusiasm which the most ardent members would find hard to match.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 182
It is essential for my personal survival and that of the Fellowship that I not use A.A. to put myself in the limelight. Anonymity is a way for me to work on my humility. Since pride is one of my most dangerous shortcomings, practicing humility is one of the best ways to overcome it. The Fellowship of A.A. gains worldwide recognition by its various methods of publicizing its principles and its work, not by its individual members advertising themselves. The attraction created by my changing attitudes and my altruism contributes much more to the welfare of A.A. than self-promotion.

 “The terms ‘spiritual experience’ and ‘spiritual awakening’ are used many times in this book which, upon careful reading, shows that the personality change sufficient to bring about recovery from alcoholism has manifested itself among us in many different forms.”

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“Perhaps you see a fascinating feature in all this. You are really
trying to make contact with yourself, with who you really are. Call
it the kingdom of heaven within, call it your real self, call it
cosmic consciousness, it is the same certain deliverance.
 
The teachings of this chapter will help you make permanent contact
with your own rescue ship.”
1500 Ways to Escape the Human Jungle, p. 63

Love bells were ringing, our souls were singing. 
Do You Remember, never a cloudy day! 
“September” Earth Wind and Fire 
The greatest music ever composed was 
written by the hand of the Mystic, 
and the highest and best art has come
 from individuals of spiritual perception. 
The science of Mind page 328 
My heart is ringing in the key tat my soul is singing.
Music fills me with joy and I am n harmony with all life.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Lesson 230

Now will I seek and find the peace of God.
In peace I was created. And in peace do I remain. It is not given me to change my Self. How merciful is God my Father, that when He created me He gave me peace forever. Now I ask but to be what I am. And can this be denied me, when it is forever true?
 
Father, I seek the peace You gave as mine in my creation. What was given then must be here now, for my creation was apart from time, and still remains beyond all change. The peace in which Your Son was born into Your Mind is shining there unchanged. I am as You created me. I need but call on You to find the peace You gave. It is Your Will that gave it to Your Son.
==========================
 Wisdom is the portal through which all races 
may pass into the one kingdom of truth.
Paramahansa Yogananda



“Shall I still sigh for what I have not got, 
Or try with cheerfulness to bear my lot? 
Fill up my cup! I know not if the breath 
I now am drawing is my last, or not!” 
― Omar Khayyám, Rubaiyat de Omar Khayyam…
 


“God does not look at colours; He looks at the hearts.”
 Bahá’u’lláh
