Eye Opener (1950)

How many times have we postponed that call to the guy we sensed needed us?
We felt that he didn’t phone us just to “shoot the breeze.”
True, he didn’t come right out and call for help, and we did have something else to do.
We decided we would take care of it tomorrow and then found out that tomorrow was too late.
Today is truly the only day we have; what we can do, what we should do – we must do today.
The map of the United States is different today because Longstreet was one day late arriving at Gettysburg.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   


‘I would be happy if I could just get what I want.”
‘How many times in the past have you obtained what you wanted?’
‘Many times.’

‘Are you happy?'”

Thought for the Day
In A.A. we forget about the future. We know from experience that as time goes on, the future takes care of itself. Everything works out well, as long as we stay sober. All we need to think about is today. When we get up in the morning and see the sun shining in the window, we thank God that He has given us another day to enjoy because we’re sober, a day in which we may have a chance to help somebody. Do I know that this day is all I have and that with God’s help I can stay sober today?
Meditation for the Day
All is fundamentally well. That does not mean that all is well on the surface of things. But it does mean that God’s in His heaven and that He has a purpose for the World, which will eventually work out when enough human beings are willing to follow His way. “Wearing the world as a loose garment” means not being upset by the surface wrongness of things, but feeling deeply secure in the fundamental goodness and purpose in the universe.
Prayer for the Day

I pray that God may be with me in my journey through the world. I pray that I may know that God is planning that journey.
I am the Christ, the Son of the Living God within me.
I am poised in love and reason.

Sometimes hearing an amends is as healing as making one.anon
As essence turns to ocean,
 the particles glisten. 
Watch how in this candle-flame instant
 blaze all the moments you have lived.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 80 Insights

“Let me recognize my problems have been solved.”
If only Love is real, then there can be no real problems. Separation is the only problem and separation in reality has never occurred. So the problem of separation has been solved. All are still within the Mind of God. As I remember this, I return to peace, remembering that the only problem has been solved.

This lesson reminds me of another place in the Course which asks me to rise above the battleground to see the Love that is always there. When I am willing to open to God’s Love and really receive It, I come to the awareness that Love is all that is important. Love is all that is real. In this place of remembering Love, I realize that the conflicts that constantly arise within the stories of separation are just a series of attempts to make the false ideas of separation real.

 Peace is the breath of stones, stars, and sages.
Peace is the ambrosial wine of spirit flowing from the cask of silence.
Paramahansa Yogananda
 As essence turns to ocean,
 the particles glisten. 
Watch how in this candle-flame instant
 blaze all the moments you have lived.
