3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have been experiencing some cognitive dissonance!
On the face of it, everything's peachy and comfortable, with many things to be grateful for, and good progress is being made in spirituality and mind-management. However I'm experiencing some anxiety over the fact that I am financially dependent on Missus, and that business year 5, though still in four figures, generated only a third of the turnover of year 4.
As with all anxiety, having identified the problem, I also know that the solution is correct focus. I therefore need to put the time in to being correctly focused. At the same time, it's important to feel the fear and do it anyway. Even when you are settled on your course, some anxiety is inevitable - it does not mean you are necessarily doing anything wrong or going the wrong way.
The other way round is equally true - missus is equally dependent on me emotionally and practically, needing my guidance and reassurance as well as organization and care. Perhaps this is all for the best - marriage is supposed to be about interdependence - that way, neither can consider the other a "burden".
