Eye Opener (1950)
To the new persons on our Program who might
be confused about the Moral Inventory, 
it would seem that for a starter, 
it will suffice if they will sum up each night
their actions on the past day. 
If their honest appraisal of that day meets their approval, 
if it is definitely better than the days preceding, 
then actually the Moral Inventory is in operation
whether recognized as such or not. 
If daily you are making a moral study of
your thoughts and actions, 
your defects will be noticeable
and you will instinctively take steps to correct them.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
“We fear to relax from a question, 
believing it may escape us, 
but the very relaxation attracts the answer.”

Thought for the Day 
Let us continue with Steps Two, Three, and Eleven. We must turn to 
a Higher Power for help, because we are helpless ourselves. When we put our drink problem in God’s hands and leave it there, we have made the most important decision of our lives. From then on, we trust God for the strength to keep sober. This takes us off the center of the universe and allows us to transfer our problems to a Power outside ourselves. By prayer and meditation, we seek to improve our conscious contact with God. We try to live each day the way we believe God wants us to live. Am I trusting God for the strength to stay sober? 
Meditation for the Day 
“These things have I spoken unto you, that your joy may be full.” 
Even a partial realization of the spiritual life brings much joy. You 
feel at home in the world when you are in touch with the Divine Spirit of the universe. Spiritual experience brings a definite satisfaction. 
Search for the real meaning of life by following spiritual laws. God 
wants you to have spiritual success and He intends that you have it. 
If you live your life as much as possible according to spiritual laws, 
you can expect your share of joy and peace, satisfaction and success. 
Prayer for the Day 
I pray that I will find happiness in doing the right thing. I pray that 
I will find satisfaction in obeying spiritual laws.

If the organs of the body followed the average
tactics of people and acquisitive habits,
if the lungs hold of the air they take, 
if the heart kept the fresh blood stored within its walls,
refusing to allow it to circulate,
if the stomach retain the food taken in for nourishment,
what a static condition we would have!

When, therefore, we speak to you of God, 
we mean your own conception of God.
BB We Agnostics, p.47  

 Don’t for a moment think that you’ve found the goal of your love! 
Don’t stand still in the ranks. 
You have no place with uniforms at rest. 
You might as well consent to be a corsage, 
or a rose in some beautiful woman’s hair. 
Rumi (from “Birdsong” translated by Coleman Barks)

ACIM Workbook Lesson 260 Insights
Let me remember God created me.”
The sentence that stands out to me this time as I read this lesson is, “Yet, as Your Thought, I have not left my Source, remaining part of Who created me.” Jesus reminds me that I am God’s Thought. And if I am God’s Thought, so is my brother God’s Thought. We all came from the same Source, the Mind of God, and we remain There. We remain as Thought in the Mind of God.
It is helpful for me to remember that this and only this is the truth. It is helpful for me to remember that my dreams of something else being real are just illusions. It is helpful for me to remember that my brother’s dreams are just illusions. It is helpful for me to return to remembering that the only truth of everyone in this world is that they are unified Thought in the one Mind of Love.
This remembering comforts me and brings me peace. This remembering cuts through all the ego’s clutter and deception. All the conflict of the world is easy to cut through. It never happened. All the myriad stories of differences and separation are false. They are lies. They are substitutes for the truth of our one Identity. We all are the same Love in the Mind of Love. That alone is true.
Today I will rest in this remembering. Today I will be comforted in this remembering. Today I will practice remembering that I did not create myself. Let me remember God created me. How God would have me be, I am.
It’s helpful to look at the implications of the recognition that God created me. First, the Course tells us that God is Love and nothing else. It then tells us the implication is, “God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”
The Course also tells us that Love is eternal, changeless and forever extending Itself. Since I am Love, I must be changeless, eternal and forever extending Love. Therefore I am harmless and invulnerable, perfectly safe. Being harmless, guilt is impossible and fear inconceivable. Joy and peace are my natural state, for they are simply attributes of Love.
All this I recognize when I remember God created me. I remember my Self and share God’s holiness when I remember God created me. I recognize my Self in all my brother’s when I remember God created me. I am wholly free of conflict and filled with the joy of sharing Love with All That is when I remember God created me. Today, let me remember the truth that I am created by God. I could never create myself in truth.
Thanksgiving and praise open in your consciousness t
he way for spiritual growth and supply to come to you.
Spirit pushes Itself out into visible manifestation as
soon as a channel is open through which It can flow.
Paramahansa Yogananda
“May your love for your beloved
be as great as the love of the bottle for the glass.
Look, how one gives and one receives, lip against
lip, the precious blood of the grapes!” 
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
