“Q: So the enemy is unseen egotism?
 
A: Imagine a country terrorized by an unseen but powerful dictator.
He ruins lives, causes heartache, spreads lies and confusions. Here
we have the perfect picture of the tyranny of unconscious egotism.
Terrorized people are those who fail to overthrow the tyranny of
egotism. As aid in overthrowing it, remember that egotism never
calls itself egotism, but masquerades as various forms of goodness.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day nov.3,2016

Thought For The Day 
How do I talk with new prospects? Am I always trying to dominate 
the conversation? Do I lay down the law and tell prospects what 
they will have to do? Do I judge them privately and feel that they 
have small chance of making the program? Do I belittle them to 
myself? Or am I willing to bare my soul so as to get them talking 
about themselves? And, then, am I willing to be a good listener, 
not interrupting, but hearing them out to the end? Do I feel deeply 
that they are my brothers or my sisters?   Will I do all I can to 
help them along the path to sobriety? 
Meditation For The Day 
“The work of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of 
righteousness shall be quietness and assurance forever.” Only when 
the soul attains this calm, can there be true spiritual work done, 
and mind and soul and body be strong to conquer and bear all things. 
Peace is the result of righteousness. There is no peace in wrong 
doing, but if we live the way God wants us to live, quietness and 
assurance follow. Assurance is that calmness born of a deep 
certainty of God’s strength available to us and in His power to 
love and guard us from all harm and wrong doing. 
Prayer For The Day 
I pray that I may attain a state of true calmness. I pray that I
may live in quietness and peace.
======================

Remember that what you now have was once 
among some of the things you hoped for. 
Epicurus 
Behind each one sends the Eternal Mind. 
The science of Mind page 339 
Affirmation: 
God’s mind is my mind. I remember this and rejoice. 

So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making. They arise out of 
ourselves, and the alcoholic is an extreme example of self-will run riot, 
though he usually doesn’t think so. Above everything, we alcoholics must be 
rid of this selfishness.  We must, or it will kill us.
— Alcoholics Anonymous, page 62 
No one is willing to acknowledge a fault in himself when a more agreeable 
motive can be found for the estrangement of his acquaintances.
 — Mark Twain
A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is 
but saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
— Alexander Pope

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 306
The gift of Christ is all I seek today.
What but Christ’s vision would I use today, when it can offer me a day in which I see a world so like to Heaven that an ancient memory returns to me? Today I can forget the world I made. Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.
 
And so, our Father, we return to You, remembering we never went away; remembering Your holy gifts to us. In gratitude and thankfulness we come, with empty hands and open hearts and minds, asking but what You give. We cannot make an offering sufficient for Your Son. But in Your Love the gift of Christ is his.
==========================

He is a happy is to have the happiness of God within his soul.
Paramahansa Yogananda

When I want to understand what is happening
 today or try to decide what will happen tomorrow, I look back.
Omar Khayyam

“Where there is love, 
nothing is too much trouble and there is always time” 
― Abdu’l-Bahá
