 Eye Opener (1950)
Service ends one of his verses in this fashion: 
“It’s the keeping on living that’s hard.” 
Living has always been hard, not only for the 
alcoholic but for humanity in general since the
 beginning of recorded history – 
and was probably even worse before that.
We are surrounded on all sides by people 
who find living all too rugged for their puny strength. 
This is our opportunity. We find we can lighten their
 load of living and, curiously enough, 
we find that we lighten our own loads in so doing. 
Living then becomes less hard for us and assumes
a sweetness that appears divine in its richness.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“Solve the mystery of yourself – and solve all else!
You may enjoy a mystery story,
but no one likes bewilderment toward
his own life. Lack of self-knowledge causes discomfort.
 But that happily means that by winning self-insight you also win self-ease.”

Thought for the Day 
“We all realize that we know only a little. God will constantly 
disclose more to all of us. Ask Him in your morning meditations what 
you can do today for the person who is still sick. The answers will 
come, if your own house is in order. See to it that your relationship
with God is right and great events will come to pass for you and 
countless others. Give freely of what you find in A.A. But obviously, 
you cannot transmit something that you haven’t got. So make a life 
study of A.A.” Am I always looking for ways of presenting the AA. 
Meditation for the Day 
“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” Confidence 
means to have faith in something. We could not live without confidence 
in others. When you have confidence in God’s grace, you can face 
whatever comes. When you have confidence in God’s love, you can be 
serene and at peace. You can rest in the faith that God will take 
care of you. Try to rest in God’s presence until His life-power flows 
through you. Be still and in that stillness the still, small Voice 
will come. It speaks in quietness to the human mind that is attuned 
to its influence. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I may find strength today in quietness. I pray that I may 
be content today that God will take care of me.

 The free-flowing life of spirit is now energizing
 every part of my being and kicking it into life and action.

When we developed still more, 
we discovered the best possible
source of emotional stability to be God Himself.

One who does what the Friend wants
done will never need a friend.
There’s bankruptcy that’s pure gain.
The moon stays bright when it doesn’t avoid the night.
The roses rarest essence lives in the thorn.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 257 Insights

“Let me remember what my purpose is.”
My purpose today and everyday is to remember God. My purpose today and everyday is to remember my true Identity and my brother’s true Identity. My purpose is to remember that we are still one in God’s Mind. We have not left God’s Mind. We are still as God created us. My purpose is to let go of vain imaginings and return to the one truth that is always there.
There is only one universal Love. God’s Love is extended to all equally. This is what I would remember today. This is my one goal. Today I let my mind be healed of all little conflicting goals which really mean nothing. I have one goal today and that is to remember that I live only in God’s Mind. Let me remember what my purpose is.
What I really want is God’s Will for me, because I share His Will in truth. If I am not experiencing the peace of God, I have chosen or judged against God’s Will. It is this judgment that must be forgiven or let go of.
Judging against the Will of God, perceiving It to be different from my own, does not change the reality of What I am. But it does change the experience of what I am. If my desire is to be different, I will reject What is the same and experience being different. By the grace of God, the reality of What I am does not change. I need only cease my judgment against God and I will know my Self as I was created.
If I perceive myself as being attacked, this simply reflects my belief that I can attack and therefore be attacked. This stems from the core belief that I have attacked God by judging against or rejecting His Will. What I believe people do to me is what I believe God would do to me because it is what I believe that I did to God. The nature of projection is that first we look within and what we believe we are we project onto others and onto God.
As I forgive or let go of my judgment against God, I can see Him as the Love He is and thus see my Self as the Love I am. Thus my purpose in this world is to forgive or let go of my judgments against Love. Thus I clear the way to the return to full awareness of my Self as Love and nothing else. Let me remember my purpose today.
Friendship is the highest form of love.
As such, it is meant to evolve into the
divine manifestation of God’s eternal love.

“When your soul and mine
have left our bodies and we are
buried alongside each other,
a Potter may one day mold
the dust of both of us
into the same clay.”
