Eye Opener (1950)
In their first efforts to grasp the Program, the new men are very frequently at a loss as to how to begin. They feel they have been so wrong in their attitude toward God and man that it appears that they have a multitude of things to do when actually it can to a large degree be combined into one short sentence – act toward your fellow man as though God were watching and toward God as though man were watching.
Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“If your usual attempts to clear your day of problems have not
succeeded, you need not be discouraged. You were not born to lose.
You need only realize that the way out lies in an entirely new
direction. This refreshing way is rarely tried by most people,
which is why most people remain troubled.
The answers to life exist. There is no question about that. The
only question is, do we want them in preference to what we now
accept as answers?”

Thought for the Day 
Continuing the answers to the question of how a person can live 
without liquor and be happy, we say: “You will be bound to the other 
A.A.s with new and wonderful ties, for you and they will escape 
disaster together and all will commence shoulder to shoulder the 
common journey to a better and more satisfactory life. You will know 
what it means to give of yourself that others may survive and 
rediscover life. You will become happy, respected, and useful once 
more. Since these things have happened to us, they can happen to 
you.” Have these things happened to me? 
Meditation for the Day 
God manifests Himself in human lives as strength to overcome evil 
and power to resist temptation. The grace of God is that power which 
enables a human being to change from a useless, hopeless individual 
to a useful, normal person. God also manifests Himself as love-love 
for other people, compassion for their problems, and a real 
willingness to help them. The grace of God also manifests itself as 
peace of mind and serenity of character. We can have plenty of power, 
love, and serenity in our lives if we are willing to ask God for 
these things each day. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may see God’s grace in the strength I receive, the love 
I know, and the peace I have. I pray that I may be grateful for the 
things I have received through the grace of God.

  I do not need to imitate anyone or 
 long for the good that belongs to another. 
All good is now mine and now manifest in my experience.
 The science of Mind page 263 

Time after time, this apparent calamity
has been a boon to us, for it opened up
a path which led to the discovery of God.
BB To Wives, p.116

This is how I would die into the love I have for you: 
as pieces of cloud dissolve in sunlight. 

ACIM Workbook Lesson 253 Insights
“My Self is ruler of the universe.”
It is important to recognize that the Self that is ruler of the universe is not the little ‘self’ that I associate with a body, a name and a personality. This little self is a false image of being separate from the Will of God.
This Self that shares God’s Will is His Son, the same as Him in every aspect, creating as He creates. Since God is Love and nothing else, His Son is the extension of Love and nothing else. Being only Love, His Son can only extend Love. This is Creation.
The little self that perceives loss, lack and death cannot be real. Separation or lack of love, which the Course also calls sin, must be illusion. In the dream of illusions, this self appears to have dominion. The dream it makes fulfills the desires of that self. It does not seem that we desire to have our car break down and be expensive to repair. It does not seem that we desire to be sick. But these are simply manifestations of the desire to have a unique and special identity we can call our own, separate from all others.
When we choose to believe we are separate from the Will of God, our desire makes the Will of God unknown to us. Because God’s Will is Love, Love is unknown to us in this dream. Desiring separation, the mind directs the body to strive to show us proof that separation is real. The Course assures us there is no sin. There is no separation. There is no lack of love. Separation is only a mad illusion.
The recognition that what we experience is the result of our desire returns to our awareness the power of our mind. We need only change our goal from seeking separation to seeking the wholeness of God’s Love to free ourselves from the mad world of isolation and death. To do this we need help from outside the belief system of separation we have made. This help is available in our minds at all times. It is the Voice for God That speaks to us of our sinlessness, our wholeness, our unity with our Creator, our unity with Love.
Today I will practice allowing myself to remain in peace so that I may hear this loving and gentle Voice for God remind me that I share His Love and am His Love. This is my path to freedom.
The little individual self knows nothing of Reality. The Self is the only Self that is real. This Self is One. It is not many. That is what we are to learn and accept if we would awaken to the truth.
The experience of a separate self comes from the desire to be a separate self. Letting go of this wish for separation is forgiveness. It is through forgiveness that we let go of dreams of sin or separation from our Source.
We will return to reality when we want to return to reality. Reality is now. It has always been. Dreaming dreams of scarcity, loss and death have never been. They are just nightmare dreams of dreaming we are what we are not. Letting go of our attachment to these dreams is the only way we will know Reality. Our one Self is the ruler of the universe.
My job is to open to this one Self now. The little self does not know. All knowledge comes from the one Self. Today, in quiet, I will listen and receive the truth from my one Self, Who is the true ruler of the universe.
I feel, at this moment, like I can see a bit better than I’ve ever seen before. We always get what we ask for. We just don’t remember asking. We asked for separation and that’s what we think we have. That’s why we feel lonely, misunderstood, depressed, isolated, rejected. We asked for separation. All we have to do is ask for re-union.

What I am no one else is. 
I should be very proud of my divine individuality. 
Paramahansa Yogananda

“Oh, come with old Khayyàm, and leave the Wise 
To talk; one thing is certain, that Life flies; 
One thing is certain, and the Rest is Lies; 
The Flower that once has blown forever dies.”
