DAILIES
 
Eye Opener (1950)
No man with certainty can see beyond this instant.
Yesterday we had a friend, hale, hearty and bubbling 
over with energy and ambition. 
Today we write a letter of condolence to his widow. 
No one knows the day or the hour, but this we do know –
we are alive right now, people are suffering right now, 
we can help them right now.

“Religious leaders are always afraid of losing their false
identities which they get through the false identities of
their followers.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day April 7,2016
Thought for the Day
In A.A. alcoholics find a way to solve their personality problems. They do this by recovering three things. First, they recover their personal integrity. They pull themselves together. They get honest with themselves and with other people. They face themselves and their problems honestly, instead of running away. They take a personal inventory of themselves to see where they really stand. Then they face the facts instead of making excuses for themselves. Have I recovered my integrity?
Meditation for the Day
When trouble comes, do not say: “Why should this happen to me?” Leave yourself out of the picture. Think of other people and their troubles and you will forget about your own. Gradually get away from yourself and you will know the consolation of unselfish service to others. After a while, it will not matter so much what happens to you. It is not so important any more, except as your experience can be used to help others who are in the same kind of trouble.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may become more unselfish. I pray that I may not be thrown off the track by letting the old selfishness creep back into my life.
======================================
Out of the darkness of the long night the Dawn has come.
I rise to meet the new day,
filled with confidence and strength.
I arise and I go for it into the Dawn inspired 
and refreshed by the Living Spirit within me.
The Science of Mind page 532
 
Our Twelfth Step says that as a result of practicing all the Steps, we 
have found something called a spiritual awakening. To new A.A.’s, 
this often seems like a very dubious and improbable state of affairs. 
“What do you mean when you talk about a ‘spiritual awakening’?” 
they ask.

Someone who does not run toward the allure
of love walks the road where nothing lives.
But this dove here senses the love- Hawk floating above,
and waits, and will not be driven or scared to safety.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 97 Insights
“I am spirit.”
Each time I say the beginning words of the exercise, I feel uplifted, lighter. Joy and gratitude grow in my heart and a sense of peace envelops me. The truth is I am free of all limits, safe and healed and whole. When I remember this, I see that there is nothing to forgive and I bring that vision of innocence to the world.
 
That is the salvation of the world. It is the recognition that in truth, nothing was ever lost. What looked like a world of division and harm and loss was just a foolish fantasy that could never be. The world is safe and healed and whole in truth. As I recognize this peace grows stronger in my awareness. Conflict and doubt fade away. There is nothing but Love to give and to receive. The joy of loving fills my being.
TO CONTINUE:
====================
 Love is this silent conversation between two hearts.
 Paramahansa Yogananda
 
Someone who does not run toward the allure
of love walks the road where nothing lives. 
But this dove here senses the love- Hawk floating above,
and waits, and will not be driven or scared to safety.
