DAILIES     
 
Eye Opener (1950)
We alcoholics had contracted the world until it was no larger than ourselves and our narrow interests. We had few interests that extended beyond our hand or our eye. Everything else was relegated to another world entirely apart from us. It is little wonder that the world gave us no more thought, except for our nuisance value, than they did a man from Mars for we, too, were occupants of another world.
===============================
DAILY REFLECTIONS

NOVEMBER 5
“THE QUALITY OF FAITH”
This . . . has to do with the quality of faith. . . . In no deep
or meaningful sense had we ever taken stock of ourselves. .
. . We had not even prayed rightly. We had always said,
“Grant me my wishes” instead of “Thy will be done.”
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 32
God does not grant me material possessions, take away my
suffering, or spare me from disasters, but He does give me
a good life, the ability to cope, and peace of mind. My
prayers are simple: first, they express my gratitude for the
good things in my life, regardless of how hard I have to
search for them; and second, I ask only for the strength and
the wisdom to do His will. He answers with solutions to my
problems, sustaining my ability to live through daily
frustrations with a serenity I did not believe existed, and
with the strength to practice the principles of A.A. in all of
my everyday affairs.
=======================
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
Mysticism is: a. An advanced state of inner enlightenment. b. Union with Reality. c. A state of genuinely satisfying success. d. Insight into an entirely new world of living. e. An intuitive grasp of Truth, above and beyond intellectual reasoning. f. A personal experience, in which we are happy and healthy human beings.
===========================

“Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all of our activities. ‘How can I best serve Thee – Thy will ( not mine ) be done.’ These are thoughts which must go with us constantly. We can exercise our will power along this line all we wish. It is the proper use of the will.”
Alcoholics Anonymous, PG. 85
 
 
 
Rise up nimbly and go on your strange journey to the ocean of meanings…. Leave and don’t look away from the sun as you go, in whose light you’re sometimes crescent, sometimes full.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 308
This instant is the only time there is.
I have conceived of time in such a way that I defeat my aim. If I elect to reach past time to timelessness, I must change my perception of what time is for. Time’s purpose cannot be to keep the past and future one. The only interval in which I can be saved from time is now. For in this instant has forgiveness come to set me free. The birth of Christ is now, without a past or future. He has come to give His present blessing to the world, restoring it to timelessness and love. And love is ever-present, here and now.
 
Thanks for this instant, Father. It is now I am redeemed. This instant is the time You have appointed for Your Son’s release, and for salvation of the world in him.
============================
Everything in creation has individuality. The Lord never repeats Himself. Similarly, in mans mans divine search there are infinite variations of approach and expression. The romance of each deputy with God is unique. 
Paramahansa Yogananda
 
 
The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. 
Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it.
Omar Khayyam
 
 
“God has created the world as one—
the boundaries are marked out by man.” 
Bahá’u’lláh
