2011 Reprint of 1954 Edition. Richard Walker, the author of this work, is the second most popular Twelve Step recovery author in total sales, after Bill Wilson. Walker has helped untold numbers of alcoholics through his writings. "Twenty-Four Hours a Day" is a book of meditation, thought, and prayer that is soul inspiring, spiritually uplifting, and filled with sage words of wisdom. While geared toward members of Alcoholics Anonymous to help them in their daily program of recovery, the book has much to offer any individual who is working on self-improvement and personal growth, and who is searching for spiritual uplifting and guidance. The book is divided into the 365 days of the calendar year, offering a thought, meditation, and related short prayer on each day. Much of the material is based on the Big Book and other A.A. literature. A classic work.

This is a book of reflections by A.A. members for A.A. members. It was first published in 1990 to fulfill a long-felt need within the Fellowship for a collection of reflections that moves through the calendar year--one day at a time. Each page contains a reflection on a quotation from A.A. Conference-approved literature, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, As Bill Sees It and other books. These reflections were submitted by members of the A.A. Fellowship who were not professional writers, nor did they speak for A.A. but only for themselves, from their own experiences in sobriety. Thus the book offers sharing, day by day, from a broad cross section of members, which focuses on the Three Legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous: Recovery, Unity and Service. Daily Reflections has proved to be a popular book that aids individuals in their practice of daily meditation and provides inspiration to group discussions even as it presents an introduction for some to A.A. literature as a whole.

"Yes, he's one of those men that don't know how to manage. Good situation. Regular income.Quite enough for luxuries as well as needs. Not really extravagant. And yet the fellow's always indifficulties. Somehow he gets nothing out of his money. Excellent flat-half empty! Always looks asif he'd had the brokers in. New suit-old hat! Magnificent necktie-baggy trousers! Asks you todinner: cut glass-bad mutton, or Turkish coffee-cracked cup! He can't understand it. Explanationsimply is that he fritters his income away. Wish I had the half of it! I'd show him-"So we have most of us criticised, at one time or another, in our superior way.We are nearly all chancellors of the exchequer: it is the pride of the moment. Newspapers arefull of articles explaining how to live on such-and-such a sum, and these articles provoke acorrespondence whose violence proves the interest they excite. Recently, in a daily organ, a battleraged round the question whether a woman can exist nicely in the country on L85 a year. I have seenan essay, "How to live on eight shillings a week." But I have never seen an essay, "How to live ontwenty-four hours a day." Yet it has been said that time is money. That proverb understates the case.Time is a great deal more than money. If you have time you can obtain money-usually. But thoughyou have the wealth of a cloak-room attendant at the Carlton Hotel, you cannot buy yourself aminute more time than I have, or the cat by the fire has.Philosophers have explained space. They have not explained time. It is the inexplicable rawmaterial of everything. With it, all is possible; without it, nothing. The supply of time is truly a dailymiracle, an affair genuinely astonishing when one examines it. You wake up in the morning, and lo!your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe ofyour life! It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. A highly singular commodity, showeredupon you in a manner as singular as the commodity itself!For remark! No one can take it from you. It is unstealable. And no one receives either more orless than you receive.Talk about an ideal democracy! In the realm of time there is no aristocracy of wealth, and noaristocracy of intellect. Genius is never rewarded by even an extra hour a day. And there is nopunishment. Waste your infinitely precious commodity as much as you will, and the supply willnever be withheld from you. No mysterious power will say: -"This man is a fool, if not a knave. Hedoes not deserve time; he shall be cut off at the meter." It is more certain than consols, and paymentof income is not affected by Sundays. Moreover, you cannot draw on the future. Impossible to getinto debt! You can only waste the passing moment. You cannot waste to-morrow; it is kept for you.You cannot waste the next hour; it is kept for you

In The Twenty-four Hour Mind, sleep researcher Rosalind Cartwright brings together decades of research into the bizarre sleep disorders known as 'parasomnias' to propose a new theory of how the human brain works consistently throughout waking and sleeping hours, based upon research showing that one of the primary purposes of sleep is to aid in regulating emotions and processing experiences that occur during waking hours.
