3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Yesterday was another day where I experienced my mood having a life of its' own. I began the day still fuming from a minor altercation with a manager on the Weekend Job the day before. My mood remained very dark until around tea time when it started to lift, and by the end of the shift, it had risen to be sunny! With a benign 2nd shift, mood simply recovered on its own.
Throughout this, my behaviour was, thankfully, well-managed, and most importantly nothing was inflicted on the innocent. All this led to much reflection on the way home. I concluded that my mood, heavily influenced by circumstances, was not in my control, but my behaviour was, so long as raw nerves were not continually trod on, and given a benign environment, I can soon recover from being upset.
If my Practice were successful enough to be self-supporting and I could quit the Weekend Job, I would be in total control of my environment and life would be just continual bliss! I have purged my personal life of toxic relationships and consequently flourish at home. As it currently is, my life is mainly bliss with the odd blip, coming mainly from the Weekend Job. Such grief as I get, not being continual, does not overwhelm me.
I would conclude that I need to work hard to make my Practice a success as that is the key to maintaining a healthy environment in which my character can thrive. At the same time, I must set time aside to raise my awareness to Higher Consciousness so that I can simply observe/experience my character rather than be lost in it.

A dolphin can produce whistles for communication and clicks for sonar
at the same time, which would be like a human speaking in two voices,
with two different pitches, holding two different conversations.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Friendship is the most genuinely humane relationship of which we are
capable. To be understood and appreciated for oneself is a vital
experience in life.
