3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I was rather pleased with my somewhat Zen response to Son spilling water over his laptop last night - a reaction that would certainly have been very different to my own Father and my old self before I learned the mind-management techniques I know now. This character is a better man than my Father and the man I used to be. And of course, this has helped Son as he goes through a painful lesson. Whether his laptop dries intact and functional remains to be seen in the next day or two.
There is a greater lesson here. All things must pass - the creature comforts we may enjoy, and people, are only here temporarily and will pass, and at any moment! Of this I am fully aware, and so the future doesn't occupy a lot of my thinking. In most things I prefer to deal with them as they happen. This policy has worked for me so far!
I was also chuffed with myself successfully initiating - and completing lovemaking last night. A playful pat on missus bottom is a good test of her receptiveness. Declarations of pleasure, rather than a simple grunt, indicate that taking things further would be enjoyable. I rose to the opportunity - not guaranteed these days - and a good time was had by all. Being well-fed, hydrated and relaxed, the excitement of spontaneity and with sufficient L-argenine in the system (mainly from peanuts) seems to give me the ability to perform. Hooray!
The Discipline of Submission, where I release conscious control to my Higher Self, is also working well for me, the ultimate fulfilment of a lifelong anaesthesia fetish. I have always found the feeling and idea of being put to sleep absolutely delicious. Now I can have that experience on demand without the need for drugs or to actually lose consciousness. My consciousness simply allows itself to be "taken over" by my subconscious/Higher Self and my consciousness is free to simply feel, free of pain and anxiety. Wonderful! I am now capable of generating all the pleasure I want from within myself. Not being emotionally dependent on anyone else, I can enjoy the pleasure of the company of others without grasping or worrying.
