DAILIES

 Eye Opener (1950)
Man has taken the raw materials of Nature and created works of such beauty and power as to be second only to Nature itself, yet only an insignificant few have contributed materially in this work.

For the most part, man crawls through life on a plane but slightly higher than brute creation. The train of progress has a thousand deadheads for every paying passenger.
We are no longer bums but passengers on the train of progress who have not only paid our fare but are willing to get out and push when the going gets tough.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   

“The only evil is ignorance, unawareness, failure to see our
authentic identity. To the degree that we learn to live from
our true identity, our pains and follies fall away, to be re-
placed with peace and wisdom.”
The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power, Chap. 1, p. 23

Twenty Four Hours A Day MARCH 19,2016

Thought for the Day
When we were drinking, we used to be ashamed of the past. Remorse is terrible mental punishment: ashamed of ourselves for the things we’ve said and done, afraid to face people because of what they might think of us, afraid of the consequences of what we did when we were drunk. In A.A. we forget about the past. Do I believe that God has forgiven me for everything I’ve done in the past, no matter how black it was, provided I’m honestly trying to do the right thing today?
Meditation for the Day
God’s spirit is all about you all day long. You have no thoughts, no plans, no impulses, no emotions, that He does not know about. You can hide nothing from Him. Do not make your conduct conform only to that of the world and do not depend on the approval or disapproval of others. God sees in secret, but He rewards openly. If you are in harmony with the Divine Spirit, doing your best to live the way you believe God wants you to live, you will be at peace.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may always feel God’s presence. I pray that I may realize this Presence constantly all through the day.
================================
Continue to declare that there were no mistakes, 
there are none and there never will be…. 
there are no mistakes in the Divine Plan for me.
The Science of Mind page 292 

Prayer
“As the alcoholic goes along with his process of prayer,

he begins to add up the results.
If he persists, he will almost surely find more serenity,
more tolerance, less fear, and less anger.
He will acquire a quiet courage, the kind that doesn’t strain him.
He can look at so-called failure and success
for what they really are.
Problems and calamity will begin to mean instruction,
rather than destruction.
He will feel freer and saner. . .
Wonderful and unaccountable things will start to happen.
Twisted relations with family and on the outside
will unaccountably improve.”
Bill W., June 1958

 All our lives we’ve looked into each other’s faces. 
That was the case today too.
 How do we keep our love-secret? 
We speak from brow to brow and hear with our eyes.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 78 Insights
“Let miracles replace all grievances.”
This lesson helps me recognize that every person’s behavior, every person’s individual identity is not what they are. When I focus on the individual personality, what it says and what it does, that is holding a grievance. I don’t often think of it as a grievance, but this lesson is helping me see what is really going on. This lesson gives me a process that helps me move into seeing as the Holy Spirit sees. The Holy Spirit always sees the same Source of Light in everyone and everywhere. The Holy Spirit is consistent. Right now I need to learn this consistency with consistent practice.

When I focus on the body and what any body says or does, I am seeing now very clearly that this is a grievance against God. When I do this, I am choosing to join with the ego and forget about God. This does not bring me happiness. It only brings me disappointment and pain.

Conquer your circumscribed consciousness and expand your spiritual powers without limit.
You can go as far as you want to go, past all limitations, and live a supremely victorious existence.
Paramahansa Yogananda
