Eye Opener (1950)
The AA way of living holds out, for all that will grasp it,
everything that is advantageous to life.
A healthy mind, a healthy body, a healthy soul.
Complete harmony with God, your fellow man and yourself.
Truly the peace that passeth all understanding.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE   

“Don’t look for someone in whom to believe. Believe in yourself.
The only authentic authority is your own original nature. And, I
will add, it is the only genuinely compassionate authority.”

Twenty Four Hours A Day March 28,2016
Thought for the Day
When you come into an A.A. meeting, you’re not just coming into a meeting, you’re coming into a new life. I’m always impressed by the change I see in people after they’ve been in A.A. for a while. I sometimes take an inventory of myself, to see whether I have changed, and if so, in what way. Before I met A.A., I was very selfish. I wanted my own way in everything. I don’t believe I ever grew up. When things went wrong, I sulked like a spoiled child and often went out and got drunk. Am I still all “get” and no “give”? 
Meditation for the Day
There are two things that we must have if we are going to change our way of life. One is faith, the confidence in things unseen, the fundamental goodness and purpose in the universe. The other is obedience: that is, living according to our faith, living each day as we believe that God wants us to live, with gratitude, humility, honesty, purity, unselfishness, and love. Faith and obedience, these two, will give us all the strength we need to overcome sin and temptation and to live a new and more abundant life.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may have more faith and obedience. I pray that I may live a more abundant life as a result of these things.

I am convinced that this word has power, & I firmly believe in it.

But when, now and then, we could gladly make right choices without 

rebellion, hold-out, or conflict, then we had our first view of what 

perfect freedom under God’s will could be like.

You’re not a slave. You’re a king.
 If you want something release the
 wish and let it light on its desire,
 completely free of the personal.
 Then sit and sound the drum of nothing,

ACIM Workbook Lesson 87 Insights
Review: “I will there be light.”
and “There is no will but God’s.”
I really find the consistency of the Course’s sticking to the truth very helpful in my process of awakening. I still find it easy to make what bodies say and do real in my mind. The Course helps me by jarring these perceptions loose and giving me a handrail by which to accept true perception. The world of bodies is an illusion. What bodies say and do within the realm of time and space is really meaningless when I remember there is no will but God’s. “There is no will but God’s” means all is still as God created it. God is. Love is.
   I need this consistent practice day in and day out to return my mind to the truth. The light that is within us all is still there and I will to find this and only this. As I go through the day, I still find my mind joining with the ego’s dream of separate bodies. Again today, I am willing to practice seeing through the lens of God’s Will. I am willing to step back and let go of my perceptions. They really do mean nothing. There is no will but God’s. As I accept this, the Light of God shines every false image away. This is my practice today. I will there be light and there is no will but God’s.
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
