DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
Reduced to its simplest form, the only true worship is to love God,
 and the only way to demonstrate this love is to serve your fellow man.
 We in AA show the extent of our moral growth in the extent of our service to others. 
It is the only true spiritual experience. 
The flash of light that some of us experience could be only the first
ray of intelligence that finally penetrated the alcoholic fog and dazzled our minds.
   The true spiritual experience is evidenced by a passion to do those things 
which delight the spirit. By their works shall ye know them.

Can you think of anything more permanently 
elating than to know that you are on the right road at last?
Don’t try to live. Let yourself be lived.

Twenty Four Hours A Day OCT.26, 2016
Thought for the Day
Sixth, I have A.A. meetings to go to, thank God.Where would I go without them? Where would I be without them? Where would I find the sympathy, the understanding, the fellowship, the companionship? Nowhere else in the world. I have come home. I have found the place where I belong. I no longer wander alone over the face of the earth. I am at peace and at rest. What a great gift has been given me by A.A.! I do not deserve it. But it is nevertheless mine. I have a home at last. I am content. Do I thank God every day for the A.A. fellowship?
Meditation for the Day
Walk all the way with another person and with God. Do not go part of the way and then stop. Do not push God so far into the background that He has no effect on your life. Walk all the way with Him. Make a good companion of God, by praying to Him often during the day. Do not let your contact with Him be broken for too long a period. Work all the way with God and with other people, along the path of life, wherever it may lead you.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may walk in companionship with God along the way. I pray that I may keep my feet upon the path that leads upward.

things like a double cheeseburger.

Why should this system secret impurities or 
why should there be any acidity if we are governed
 by Divine intelligence as to what we should eat?

Affirmation:
 My joyful Spirit Longs for nothing. 
It is free, safe, satiated and satisfied.
 
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 298 Insights
“I love You, Father, and I love Your Son.”
In the popular television series, Survivor, each episode involves some challenge in which the participants must overcome their fears to gain a reward. They are willing to go through their fears because of the value they place on the reward. In some cases, more value is given to the fear and so they are not willing to walk through it to get the reward. This is a game of challenging illusions which seem fearful to gain a reward that is but another illusion which seems to have greater value.
 
In this lesson we are told that we can be sure that we can go through fear to meet our Love. In this case we walk through the illusion of fear to gain a reward that is real and eternal. We have help in going through the fear in the form of the Holy Spirit in our minds. And because the reward is actually the reality of What we already are, it’s achievement is inevitable, guaranteed by God.
 
There is no greater reward than the eternal, infinite Love of God. The means to reach it is in our minds. We need only bring all our thoughts to the Holy Spirit for His clarification and cleansing. He will bring them to the Light of Love. Fear will disappear, for we will recognize only Love is real.
 
Today I would practice once again bringing all my thoughts to the Holy Spirit to receive His interpretation. I would decide nothing on my own, for on my own I do not know what anything means. I would let Him guide my thoughts, my words and my actions so that I may be His messenger in this world and teach only Love.
 
My job now is to accept only what God establishes as mine. My job now is to let go of senseless journeys, mad careers and artificial values. My job now is to recognize that I am not a separate individual with a separate mind. In truth I am joined with my brother in the one Mind of God and differences hold no place in God’s Mind.
 
Loving my Father is accepting my Father as He truly is without trying to change Him. Loving my brother means seeing past the images of separation to the extension of Love my brother truly is. My purpose now is to welcome the complete thought reversal that the Holy Spirit brings to my mistaken mind. The Holy Spirit shows me that the images of separation I see through the body’s eyes could never be true and that Love, which is the only truth, could never change.
 
It is only when I try to change God’s reality that I experience fear. Separation is a fearful thought indeed. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I walk through the fear to see that the false images of separation seen through the body’s eyes have been nothing all along. They were only false ideas that could never be real. Once these images are seen for the nothingness that they are, fear falls away.
 
Today I practice recognizing the eternal truth in the title of this lesson, “I love You Father, and I love Your Son.”

Concentrate on the Eternal Life,
the source of all lives…. 
Express the glory of that immortality
and all interactions with the world.
