OUR GROUP 23 OF MORNING HOTSHOTS APRIL 6,2016

DAILIES
 
 Eye Opener (1950)
Frequently we are asked, “Why waste your money on that guy? He’s a phony if ever I saw one.” We have all heard this and often it was true but, after all, the monetary loss each month was way below our old whiskey bills. Every once in a while, the long shot does come in and the payoff is tremendous.
   It is simply a case of betting on people instead of horses. These bets on people can’t lose, for if the phony abuses your generosity, the fault is his, not yours, and he is debited and you are credited by the Great Bookkeeper who has charge of the Treasury where “neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through and steal.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day April 6, 2016
Thought for the Day
All alcoholics have personality problems. They drink to escape from life, to counteract feelings of loneliness or inferiority, or because of some emotional conflict within them, so that they cannot adjust themselves to life. Alcoholics cannot stop drinking unless they find a way to solve their personality problems. That’s why going on the wagon doesn’t solve anything. That’s why taking the pledge usually doesn’t work. Was my personality problem ever solved by going on the wagon or taking the pledge?
Meditation for the Day
God irradiates your life with the warmth of His spirit. You must open up like a flower to this divine irradiation. Loosen your hold on earth, its cares, and its worries. Unclasp your hold on material things, relax your grip, and the tide of peace and serenity will flow in. Relinquish every material thing and receive it back again from God. Do not hold on to earth’s treasures so firmly that your hands are too occupied to clasp God’s hands as He holds them out to you in love.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may be open to receive God’s blessing. I pray that I may be willing to relinquish my hold on material things and receive them back from God.
==================================================
 As the deep cries unto deep, 
so my thought cries unto Thee
and Thou dost answer. 
The Science of Mind page 549 
BB There Is A Solution, p.29  
Each individual, in the personal stories,
describes in his own language and from
his own point of view the way he established his relationship with God.
I realize that the dawn 
when we’ll meet again will never break,
 so I give it up, little by little, 
this love. 
But something in me laughs as I say this,
 someone shaking his head and chuckling softly, 
Hardly, hardly. 
Rumi 
ACIM Workbook Lesson 96 Insights
“Salvation comes from my one Self.”
While I was quieting my mind as I worked with today’s exercise, I observed the thoughts that wandered through. I observed that all these thoughts were in some way tied with the image I hold of myself as a body: memories of things the body did, things I plan to do with the body, things people said to me as a body identity. I realize all these thoughts come from a mind perceived split apart from other minds and from God.
 
While focused on these thoughts I cannot experience or be aware of the thoughts of the mind of my one Self which are shared with God. It is impossible to experience the unity of the one Mind I share with God while my thoughts are focused on a separate identity with private thoughts. With this focus I am not aware of my true Mind that is unified with the Mind of God. These thoughts so fill my awareness that it is only in fleeting moments that I experience a glimpse of the brilliant Light of the Mind of my one Self, which I share with God.
TO CONTINUE:
====================
Feel God’s love in all hearts. 
Feel God in the impartial love 
you feel for all human beings
 and in the tender love you feel
 for all created things. there.Paramahansa Yogananda

I realize that the dawn 
when we’ll meet again will never break,
 so I give it up, little by little, 
this love. 
But something in me laughs as I say this,
 someone shaking his head and chuckling softly, 
Hardly, hardly.
