OCT.28, 2016 OUR GROUP 23 OF MORNING HOTSHOTS

DAILIES Eye Opener (1950)
 
We are very apt to travel in the direction we are headed. 
Even the brightest of sunshiny days appears overcast
if we wear black glasses. If we enter a restaurant by the rear door, 
we will undoubtedly find garbage cans, smoked and grimy walls 
and hear the discord of pots and pans. If you enter by the front door, 
you will find cleanliness and order.
 Let us enter each new day by the front door.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
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.28, 2016
Thought for the Day
What other rewards have come to me as a result of my new way of living? Each one of us can answer this question in many ways. My relationship with my spouse or companion is on an entirely new plane. The total selfishness is gone and more cooperation has taken its place. My home is a home again. Understanding has taken the place of misunderstanding, recriminations, bickering, and resentment. A new companionship has developed which bodes well for the future. “There are homes where fires burn and there is bread, lamps are lit and prayers are said. Though people falter through the dark and nations grope, with God Himself back of these little homes, we still can hope. Have I come home?
Meditation for the Day
We can bow to God’s will in anticipation of the thing happening that will, in the long run, be the best for all concerned. It may not always seem the best thing at the present time, but we cannot see as far ahead as God can. We do not know how His plans are laid, we only need to believe that if we trust Him and accept whatever happens as His will in a spirit of faith, everything will work out for the best in the end.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may not ask to see the distant scene.
I pray that one step may be enough for me.

We have never experienced this moment before, and 
the next moment will not be the same as the one we are in now.
Pema Chodran
Spirit knows no past and is not affected by any. The past is swallowed up in the victory of a perfect present, which is filled with love and Perfection. 
The science of Mind page 246
Affirmation 
I gently release release all thoughts of the
 past and future and allow myself to be joyfully present in the present. 
 
 
 
We have found much of heaven and we have been rocketed into a 
fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.
— Alcoholics Anonymous, page 25
 The recognition that This ,too, will pass brings detachment and with 
detachment another dimension comes into your life — inner space. 
Through detachment, as well as non judgment and inner
 nonresistance, you gain access to that dimension. 
 — Eckhart Tolle
There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the 
form of an object be what it may, – light, shade, and perspective will 
always make it beautiful.
— John Constable
 
 
Birdsong brings relief to my longing. 
I am just as ecstatic as they are, but with nothing to say.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 300 Insights
“Only an instant does this world endure.”
In this lesson we are being gently guided to let go of our insane stories of separation and individuality. We have wandered from the truth of our real Identity. As we quiet our minds and let go of these insane stories about a world of time and space, we go beyond them to the eternal Presence of peace, love and joy. We cease wanting to see separation. We become willing to acknowledge God as our only Source. We become willing to acknowledge that we are Love, just as God is and that nothing else is real. We become willing to return Home.
 
Today I would practice letting false perceptions go. I would practice seeing each perception as a passing cloud that softly disappears. I would practice quieting my mind and asking for the truth.
 
I can let this world of pain, suffering and death go in an instant. I do this through forgiveness. Holding on to the images of this world and insisting on their reality is just an unwillingness to accept my Self as God created me. Thus ultimately forgiveness is forgiving God for not giving individuality and specialness.
 
It may appear that some other person criticized or somehow offended my image of myself. It may appear that some microorganism attacked my body, which is part of my image of myself. It may appear that some terrorist attacked our nation. Yet all these appearances are but the acting out of my wish to have a separate identity I can call my own.
 
It is impossible to have a separate identity without having to defend its form, protect it against intrusion and change. So complete forgiveness means that I let go of the demand for a separate identity and welcome God’s Love, given equally to all.
 
His Love is always offered. It waits only on welcome. In this moment of welcome, fear is undone and peace returns to my awareness. I remember that I am God’s extension of His Love. All this returns to me with the one decision to accept my Self as God created me.
=======================
When you enter the valley of divine love,
 you feel it filled with the loving presence of God. 
Paramahansa Yogananda 

Realise this: one day your soul
will depart from your body and you will
be drawn behind the curtain that floats between us
and the unknown. While you wait for that moment, be happy,
because you don’t know where you came from and
you don’t know where you will be going.
Omar Khayyam
 
 
 
These sanctified Mirrors…are, one and all, the Exponents on earth of Him Who is the central Orb of the universe, its Essence and ultimate Purpose. From Him proceed their knowledge and power; from Him is derived their sovereignty.
(The Kitáb-i-Íqán)
