A Worthwhile Investment “Pay Forward” #16

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – A Worthwhile Investment. “As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action. We constantly remind ourselves we are no longer running the show, humbly saying to ourselves many times each day “Thy will be done.” (Alcoholics Anonymous p 87-88) This is a powerful idea to practice in all our affairs. To consciously and consistently remember to ask our Father for His Will be done is unlikely without a little practice. How about beginning this day by building a habit of asking our Father for His Will be done during both good and bad times. We are offering the following suggested affirmation to practice rewriting our personal “reality” for the next forty days, three times a day; upon awakening, noontime and before bedtime. “I am devoted, dedicated and committed to do and to be Thy Will, Thy Love Father, consciously known or unknown.” It takes about nine seconds to repeat this affirmation. This is a very good investment costing only about 27 seconds a day, for the whole 40 days it would only cost 18 minutes, not counting the optional meditation time. Of course you are free to write your own affirmation, ours is only a suggestion. We may choose to take the optional “Deluxe Meditation Package” meditating daily on its meaning and its possible application, multiplying our affirmation’s effectiveness many times by. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
