Twenty-Four Hours a Day
Sunday, June 21, 2015
AA Thought for the Day
Intelligent faith in that Power greater than ourselves can be counted on to stabilize our emotions. It has an incomparable capacity to help us look at life in balanced perspective. We look up, around and away from ourselves, and we see that nine out of 10 things which at the moment upset us will shortly disappear. Problems solve themselves, criticism and unkindness vanish as though they had never been.

Have I got the proper perspective toward life?

Meditation for the Day
A truly spiritual man or woman would like to have a serene mind. The only way to keep calm in this troubled world is to have a serene mind. The calm and sane mind sees spiritual things as the true realities and material things as only temporary and fleeting. That sort of mind you can never obtain by reasoning, because your reasoning powers are limited by space and time. That kind of a mind you can never obtain by reading, because other minds are also limited in the same way. You can only have that mind by an act of faith, by making the venture of belief.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may have a calm and sane mind. I pray that I may look up, around and away from myself.
