DAILIES

 Eye Opener (1950)

To us alcoholics who were prone to give meaning
to words that were not intended by the speaker,
words are a particularly lethal weapon.

In our drinking days, we invariably put the wrong interpretations
on the best-intended words of our friends.
We then sounded off with a flow of words that we did not mean
and knew full well that we did not mean them.
The thoughtless sentence or the fancied slight was
forever coming between us and those we loved.

The world’s attitude toward us, either friendly or hostile,
is largely determined by our own words.

Twenty Four Hours A Day MARCH 29,2016
Thought for the Day
Before I met A.A., I was very dishonest. I lied to my spouse constantly about where I had been and what I’d been doing. I took time off from my work and pretended I’d been sick or gave some other dishonest excuse. I was dishonest with myself, as well as with other people. I would never face myself as I really was or admit when I was wrong. I pretended to myself that I was as good as the next person, although I suspected I wasn’t. Am I now really honest? 
Meditation for the Day
I must live in the world and yet live apart with God. I can go forth from my secret times of communion with God to the work of the world. To get the spiritual strength I need, my inner life must be lived apart from the world. I must wear the world as a loose garment. Nothing in the world should seriously upset me, as long as my inner life is lived with God. All successful living arises from this inner life. 
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may live my inner life with God. I pray that nothing shall invade or destroy that secret place of peace.
==========================
We have to do the drinking. 
No one else can do this for us. 
The Science of Mind page 246
God is Within You! You yourself are the creator. If you find that place 
within you from which you brought this thing about, you will be able to 
live with it and affirm it, perhaps even enjoy it, as your life.
 — Joseph Campbell

People want you to be happy. 
Don’t keep serving them your pain!
 If you could untie your wings and free your soul of jealousy,
 you and everyone around you would fly up like doves.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 88 Insights
Review: “The light has come.” and
“I am under no laws but God’s.”
Today’s lesson helps me distinguish between the real and the unreal. This lesson helps me let go of the arrogance of the ego in thinking that it knows anything or that its laws are real. This lesson helps me recognize where I need help in changing my mind.
I obviously need practice in this. I have believed that the effects of the ego thought system were real. And because of this, I have felt limited and alone. I have felt separated from God.

Float serenely on the waters of worldly life, ever intent on God.
