3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
A truly blissful Sunday where everyone got to do their own thing, and I got in a restorative two-hour meditation, meant that everyone went to bed happy. My own happiness currently rests in my own hands, or perhaps more accurately in my own head - how I deal with internal and external events.
My recent experience is that life goes better when it is intuitively driven and internally and gratefully silent. Perpetual internal silence is thus the central personal objective. To get my new book finished and take opportunities to promote myself are my business objectives and to make a difference is the supreme objective. I've never been so aware of exactly what I'm doing and why I'm doing it!
