DAILIES

Eye Opener (1950)

When we become fully conscious that we, as men, are spirit primarily, that our bodies are but necessary instruments through which the spirit works, that the mind is not a collection of brain cells but is actually a series of thought waves as free of actual substance as the winds or the rays of light or heat, we appreciate the fact that chains are powerless to restrain the thoughts which are actually the mind.

We can and do select the thoughts we store up in these brain cells.
We keep what we want and we discard what we please.
The kind of thoughts we think become habit and so become us.
====================
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   

“‘To see far, first see near. Be mindful of the present moment,
for it contains answers about future and past. What thought just
crossed your mind? Are you now sitting before me with a relaxed
or with a tense physical body? Do I now have your full or partial
attention? Come close to home by asking questions such as these.
Close questions lead to distant answers.'”
Esoteric Encyclopedia of Eternal Knowledge, p. 254

Twenty Four Hours A Day MARCH 22,2016
Thought for the Day
We’re all looking for the power to overcome drinking. When we alcoholics come into A.A., our first question is: “How do I get the strength to quit?” At first it seems to us that we will never get the necessary strength. We see older members who have found the power we are looking for, but we don’t know the process by which they got it. This necessary strength comes in many ways. Have I found all the strength I need? 
Meditation for the Day
You cannot have a spiritual need that God cannot supply. Your fundamental need is a spiritual need, the need for power to live the good life. The best spiritual supply is received by you when you want it to pass on to other people. You get it largely by giving it away. God gives you strength as you pass it on to another person. That strength means increased health; increased health means more good work, and more good work means more people helped. And so it goes on, a constant supply to meet all spiritual needs.
Prayer for the Day

I pray that my every spiritual need will be supplied by God. I pray that I may use the power I receive to help others.
===================================
If we gaze longingly at joy, 
it will make it home with us,
 and we shall enter its portals and be happy.

Grapevine DAILY QUOTE Book

Whoever loves, loves the same sweetheart I do.
 Lightning, there and there, comes from one turning jewel.
 Before creation, gold was stamped with a seal,
 so now no matter where it hides in the ground,
 it belongs to me!
 Rumi (from “Birdsong” translated by Coleman Barks)

ACIM Workbook Lesson 81 Insights

Review II: “I am the light of the world.” and
“Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.”

The truth is I am still as God created me. Nothing has changed. God’s Light is One. It includes all that Is. This is reality. This is the one Life that is real. Anything outside of the one Life we all live in the Mind of God are just hallucinations that are trying to replace God. These hallucinations come from a conflicted mind, so conflict shows up in the false stories of individual bodies. These individual bodies are perpetually in conflict. These stories make up one problem after another in order to keep the mind preoccupied with the stories of bodies.

Forgiveness means letting go of the false stories of conflict and bodies. Forgiveness means seeing the false stories for what they are. They are ultimately grievances against God, Who created all as one Light, one extension of Love.

====================
In the still lake of my soul, I love to behold Thine unruffled face of stillness.
Paramahansa Yogananda

Whoever loves, loves the same sweetheart I do.

 Lightning, there and there, comes from one turning jewel.

 Before creation, gold was stamped with a seal,

 so now no matter where it hides in the ground,

 it belongs to me!
