DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
Life is not a succession of days on earth,
 but rather it is an accumulation of experiences.
 Days are simply time locations where experiences transpired.
 The day on which no event occurred is a day lost out of life, for 
it had nothing in it to justify its memory.
===============================
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   
 
“In the days of sailing ships a vessel left Tahiti with the intended
destination of San Francisco. A sudden storm wrecked the ship and
left the crew on a deserted island. The seamen had but one way to
attract help. Hiking to the nearest crest, they prepared a bonfire.
On the fifth night a passing ship sighted the fire and rescued the
sailors.
  A sincere request for life-rescue is an accurate and an intelligent
action. It will be answered by a higher power whose purpose is rescue.
  The bonfire was not prepared or lighted by the rescuing ship. This was
the task of the stranded sailors. By doing their part they established
contact with what they needed. Contact. That is the magic word. Any
earnest man or woman can start making contact with higher help by developing right thoughts. 
One right thought is a willingness to abandon
familiar and fixed beliefs. Changing ourselves instead of trying to
change the world is another.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day April 5,2016
Thought for the Day
People often ask what makes the A.A. program work. One of the answers is that A.A. works because it gets people away from themselves as the center of the universe. And it teaches them to rely more on the fellowship of others and on strength from God. Forgetting ourselves in fellowship, prayer, and working with others is what makes the A.A. program work. Are these things keeping me sober?
Meditation for the Day
God is the great interpreter of one human personality to another. Even personalities who are the nearest together have much in their natures that remains a seated book to each other. And only as God enters and controls their lives are the mysteries of each revealed to the other. Each personality is so different. God alone understands perfectly the language of each and can interpret between the two. Here we find the miracles of change and the true interpretation of life.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may be in the right relationship to God. I pray that God will interpret to me the personalities of other people, so that I can understand them and help them.

Gratitude is one of the chief graces of human existence 
and is crowned in heaven with a consciousness of unity.

Faith is the bird that sings 
when the dawn is still dark.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 95 Insights
“I am one Self, united with my Creator.”
Jesus knows that we can’t be aware of our one Self and make illusions real at the same time. We have to let go of one to have the other. In this lesson he guides us to focus on the truth about ourselves and our brothers. To do this, we must let go of our illusions about ourselves and our brothers.
 
As we allow in the awareness of the truth that we are one Self united with our Creator, we are able to feel our Identity as peace and joy and Love. It fills up our mind and relaxes every concern. We realize that the truth is true and nothing else is true. We realize that only Love matters. We realize that all the craziness of the world is just a reflection of the ego’s madness and it doesn’t matter because it is an illusion.
 
Behind all the conflict is the truth. Behind all the conflict is the peace of God. Behind all the conflict is our one true Identity. We have never left our Creator. We are one Light and there is no distance between us. This remembering carries a feeling. It is a feeling of safety and joy and peace.

Most people imitate others.
You should be original,
 and whatever you do, do well.
