3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have found that practising acceptance enables me to practise another important discipline - inner silence. The Discipline of Inner Silence will be the main goal of my spiritual practice from this point. It takes considerable practice in both meditation and acceptance to even begin to practise this discipline and the realization that your thoughts are not "you".
When I achieve Inner Silence, bliss is total - the best feeling you can have with or without clothes on! Since the trauma of "the divorce", I had relapsed into ego somewhat, which tends to happen in any intense life-experience. I have had to go through the various recovery stages to return to full awareness, and now, fittingly at the start of a new month, I am ready once more to play the character from the perspective of the player.

In English, to “decimate” means to completely destroy. The word comes from the Latin decimare, which evolved from the practice of killing every tenth Roman soldier if they tried to mutiny.
9. ZEN WISDOM
“What kind of future do I envision for myself? What kind of self am I
trying to develop? What do I want to accomplish in my life?” The thing
is to paint this vision of your life in your heart as specifically as
possible. That “painting” itself becomes the design of your future. The
power of the heart enables us to actually create with our lives a
wonderful masterpiece in accordance with that design.
