DAILIES

Eye Opener (1950)
You cannot know and appreciate wisdom unless
you are also acquainted with a liberal amount of pure folly.
Folly provides the lessons that really stick in our
memories and provide danger signals to govern our decisions in our future conduct.

For that reason, the lessons learned overnight in a jail cell
outlast those acquired after long periods of study.
Believe you me, those lessons are seldom forgotten.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   


“FACTS ABOUT ESOTERIC SCIENCE
Students in Arizona informed each other of the single most important
fact about esoteric science each had learned in the last month:
‘If you simply drop a fearful thought, where can fear exist?
Nowhere.'”
Inspire Yourself, p. 183

Twenty Four Hours A Day March 26,2016
Thought for the Day
Strength comes also from working with other alcoholics. When you are trying to help a new prospect with the program, you are building up your own strength at the same time. You see the other person in the condition you might be in yourself and it makes your resolve to stay sober stronger than ever. Often, you help yourself more than the other person, but if you do succeed in helping the prospect to get sober, you are stronger from the experience of having helped another person. Am I receiving strength from working with others? 
Meditation for the Day
Faith is the bridge between you and God. it is the bridge that God has ordained. if all were seen and known, there would be no merit in doing right. Therefore God has ordained that we do not see or know directly. But we can experience the power of His spirit through our faith. It is the bridge between us and Him, which we can take or not, as we will. There could be no morality without free will. We must make the choice ourselves. We must make the venture of belief. 
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may choose and decide to cross the bridge of faith. I pray that by crossing this bridge I may receive the spiritual power I need.
==================================

We should read, study, think and meditate upon those 
statements which tend to be calm to give poise and confidence,
 and erase all thought of fear intention. 
The Science of Mind page 246

Sentient beings are numberless,

I vow to free them.

Delusions are inexhaustible,

I vow to end them.

The Dharma Gates are boundless,

I vow to open them.

The Enlightened Way is unsurpassable,

I vow to embody it. 

— The Four Vows – Zen Buddhist

How will you know the difficulties of being human,
if you’re always flying off to blue perfection?

 Where will you plant your grief-seeds?
Workers need ground to scrape and hoe,
not the sky of unspecified desire.
Rumi 
ACIM Workbook Lesson 85 Insights 
Review: “My grievances hide the light of the world in me.”
and “My salvation comes from me.”
“My salvation comes from me” means that within my mind is the Source of Love That is the real Me. As I am willing to return to that Source of Love, my grievances disappear. Thinking that there is anything other than Love disappears. Thinking that there is something outside me is a grievance against the Oneness of God’s Love. Thinking that someone is separate or different from Love is a grievance. Trying to make separation real is a grievance. My salvation comes with giving this up, letting this go, laying it down. That is how I set myself free.
The temptation to make a world outside of me real seems very strong at times. My job now is to go to the Source of Love in my mind and let the false mind, the ego mind, be undone as the inner Light shines it away.
TO CONTINUE:
====================
The mysterious soul abides forever, changing never….
It loves to live in the grottos of change, ever steadfast and immovable.
It never dreams aught But eternity.
Paramahansa Yogananda
