Eye Opener (1950)
The only way that AA can be considered a Reform is in the fact that
our way of living is the result of a reformation in our thinking.
  Our new pattern of action is the result of a new pattern of thinking.
As our thoughts are focused more and more on more and more,
our minds grow in the capacity to absorb more and more.
  As our thoughts are directed to the God of our understanding
 and our suffering alcoholic brethren, 
we find that self is pushed back into the little space it deserves.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE  

“There exists a sinister and worldwide conspiracy to drive you
insane, for insane human beings can be enslaved with deceptive
promises. Your chance for escaping insanity consists of under-
standing this fact instead of fearing it. And one fact you must
understand is that you in your present state are a part of this
maniacal conspiracy. All dark-minded human beings are part of it
but do not know it. Remember the following guideline: the next
time you feel helpless in the face of the world’s insanity,
discover who is the _who_ who feels helpless.”
A Treasury of Trueness, # 947

Twenty Four Hours A Day 31,2016
Thought for the Day
Since I’ve been in A.A., have I made a start toward being more unselfish? Do I no longer want my own way in everything? When things go wrong and I can’t have what I want, do I no longer sulk? Am I trying not to waste money on myself? And does it make me happy to see my family and my home have enough attention from me? Am I trying not to be all “get” and no “give”? 
Meditation for the Day
Each day is a day of progress, steady progress forward, if you make it so. You may not see it, but God does. God does not judge by outward appearance. He judges by the heart. Let Him see in your heart a simple desire always to do His will. Though you may feel that your work has been spoiled or tarnished, God sees it as an offering for Him. When climbing a steep hill, people are often more conscious of the weakness of their stumbling feet than of the view, the grandeur, or even of the upward progress.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may persevere in all good things. I pray that I may advance each day in spite of my stumbling feet.
We cannot live a choiceless life.
Every day, every moment, every second, there is choice.
The Science of Mind page 143 

We need to reflect and rediscover the mystery that lives within us, that 
is the ground of every unique expression in life, the source of fascination 
that calls all things to communion. We declare a Sabbath, a space of quiet; 
for simply being and letting be, for recovering the great, forgotten truths, 
for learning how to live again.
— Sacred Space

This is how I would die into the love I have for you.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 90 Insights

Review: “Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.”
and “Let me recognize my problems have been solved.”
This world was made to disguise the source of all problems. It appears that the cause of problems is external to me. And as long as I believe that, they cannot be solved. This supports the ego’s main agenda, which is to seek not find. It seems as though others attack me without me having anything to do with it. It seems as though a virus can give me a cold. All through the day it appears that things happen which I had nothing to do with causing. It is important to the ego that I believe this because as long as I do, I will not accept the solution to all problems and the ego’s “existence” is held in place. Were this true, there would be no resolution to the problems I seem to experience.
  But by the grace of God it cannot be true. What God did not create cannot exist. Since God did not create separation, it does not exist. Because God did not create separation, the solution is always present with the belief in separation. God’s Answer is called the Holy Spirit. It is the part of our mind that remembers separation is impossible and therefore problems are also impossible. All the things that seem to happen to me are the effect of believing that separation is real.
Become a king, an absolute monarch,
of your own mental realm of calmness.
