Promise of a New Day

Freedom is like taking a bath — you have to keep doing it every day!
—Flo Kennedy—

Nothing stands still. Change is the law of life. We may sometimes feel that our
personal gains have to be won over and over again. But looked at from another perspective, that’s not so: our solid personal gains are the ones that no one and nothing can take away from us. They are tools for continued growth. Jobs, lovers, houses may change, but serenity and freedom of spirit are within our power to achieve—to maintain or give away. Freedom means choice: our choice of what we do with our bodies, our money, our lives. If we decline to choose, the choice will be made for us. If we don’t us or claim our freedom, we are giving it away. Our lives need our active, creative participation every moment.

Like bathing, I must daily exercise my freedom. No one can do it for me.

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
