2. TODAY IN MY LIFE
Using the day intuitively, with no fixed plans other than some ironing. There will almost certainly be a long meditation. Son time in the early evening, missus time thereafter.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
On the odd occasion, I get surprised by unexpectedly having nothing that needs attending to. Such an occasion ocurred last night, with missus out in the early evening and all my business work complete. I am learning that quiet periods as much as other times require relying on intuition to get the best out of them.
An abundance of time presents itself again today, and it's an opportunity for contemplation and meditation, particularly on where I take my practice from here. With my business venture collapsing in January, I now have a golden opoortunity to create a new initiative from scratch. I already have a couple of options, so I will let intuition guide me whether to take up both, either or neither.
Quiet times are also opportunities to look spiritually inward. I have learned that everything I seek is not "out there" but within myself. Quiet contemplation on my intention sharpens my focus on it and makes me more able to see the opportunities to fulfil it. Perhaps more importantly, free of pressing distractions, it's an opportuinity to raise my awareness from the role I am playing to that which you and I truly are - the consciousness of the universe.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The Amanda Show - The Procrastinator
Being chemically inert, gold is edible. Some Asian countries put gold in fruit, jelly snacks, coffee, and tea. Since at least the 1500s, Europeans have been putting gold leaf in bottles of liquor, such as Danziger Goldwasser and Goldschlager. Some Native American tribes believed consuming gold could allow humans to levitate.
