DAILIES

Eye Opener (1950)
The truly great man can afford to be humble,
for hundreds of others are exalting him.
You have only one horn to blow and other
people can’t toot it if you are eternally tooting it yourself.

The proud man is aggressive in his own interest;
the humble man is aggressive in the ideals he believes in.
Humility is not passive resignation;
it is, rather, subjecting self for lofty purposes.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE

“Progress can be illustrated by picturing a large rock on a hilltop.
You want the rock out of the way, so you give it a push downhill.
By the law of gravity it tumbles downward, but is eventually stopped
by a tree. You shove it again, but this time it comes to rest on
a flat area of ground. You persist with your part of the process,
which permits gravity to do its part, until the rock reaches the
bottom of the hill. Inwardly, your personal effort permits natural
law to do its good work of removing difficulties.”
Esoteric Mind Power, p. 155

Twenty Four Hours A Day April 11, 2016
Thought for the Day
In that alcoholic world, one drink always leads to another and you can’t stop till you’re paralyzed. And the next morning it begins all over again. You eventually land in a hospital or jail. You lose your job. Your home is broken up. You’re always in a mess. You’re on the merry-go-round and you can’t get off. You’re in a squirrel cage and you can’t get out. Am I convinced that the alcoholic world is not a pleasant place for me to live in?
Meditation for the Day
I must learn to accept self-discipline. I must try never to yield one point that I have already won. I must not let myself go in resentments, hates, fears, pride, lust, or gossip. Even if the discipline keeps me separated from some people who are without discipline, nevertheless I will carry on. I may have different ways and a different standard of living than some others. I may be actuated by different motives than some people. But I will try to live the way I believe God wants me to live, no matter what others say.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may be an example to others of a better way of living. I pray that I may carry on in spite of hindrances.
=======================
Let us waste no further time looking for the
secret of success or the key to happiness.
Already the door is open and whosoever will may enter.

God, we mean your own conception of … BB We Agnostics, p.47
When, therefore, we speak to you of God, we mean your own conception of God

When I run after what I think I want,
my dark days are a furnace of Stress and Anxiety,
if I should have my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
Rumi

ACIM Workbook Lesson 102 Insights
“I share God’s Will for happiness for me.”
I really appreciate Jesus revealing the underlying motive of all suffering. Atoning for sin is purposeless. Pain is purposeless. As I practice quieting my mind and going to that inner place of peace, I do find a quiet, gentle happiness there. I find a sense that all is well and that nothing has ever changed.
I really do appreciate this thought reversal training. My experience of the world changes as I change my mind. I am seeing that these are not just words. It is really true. Beneath the turmoil of the world, there is peace, there is happiness, there is universal Love. There is oneness.

You are a child immortal.
You have come on earth to entertain and to be entertained.
