3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Right now I'm very much enjoying experiencing this particular life with gratitude. Good things seem to be showing up right on cue! I simply have to respond in the right way to the opportunities that present themselves. I love making a difference and I love being loved. My bad memories serve to make me greatly appreciate this current experience.
With the space available to me, I now have ample opportunity to frequently calm the mind to stillness. When your mind becomes that calm, you can feel the the joy of Being. The feeling is always there, but is drowned out by thought and experience, so only a few ever feel it. It is a distinctly pleasant warm vibration that "hums". It is quite addictive - absolute pure peace and wholeness, nothing missing or unwanted. In every quiet moment I want to go back to it.
It can take a while for your mind to become calm enough to have this experience on a regular basis. You first have to attract favourable circumstances to yourself. Gratitude and contentment are essential to be able to calm the mind to stillness. I feel very grateful to be one of the minority to be able to experience this wonderful ultimate feeling.
