7/9 Each Day a New Beginning
You are reading from the book Each Day a New Beginning
Of course, fortune has its part in human affairs, but conduct is really much more important.
It's not infrequent that we are faced with a dilemma; what is the best action to take in a certain situation? We can be guided, rightly, in every situation if we but turn inward and let our conscience direct our behavior. We have often heard it said at meetings that when we long for a message from God we will hear it, either through our conscience or in the words of our friends. Thus we can never really be in doubt; our conduct can always be above reproach if we but listen.
Right behavior leads to fortunate opportunities for those who look for them. Behavior that we're proud of seems to attract blessings in our lives. One's good fortune is really God-given and in proportion to one's willingness to act well toward others in all situations.
Simply, what goes around comes around. Our behavior comes back to us many fold. In our encounters with others today, we'll have numerous occasions to decide about the best behavior for the particular circumstance. We must not forget that our behavior elicits the responses we receive.
I will invite blessings today. I will also shower blessings on my friends.

"As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action" [Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous-- page 87]
Was a tough discipline for me to learn but I am grateful to have this ongoing lesson.
