3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
My intention to maintain a physical dimension to my daily routine has made a good start as I set about cleaning the kitchen appliances yesterday. The fryer and toaster were a complete success, the microwave and oven less so! In both cases I was defeated by heavily encrusted material on the "roof" of each chamber, and I ran out of oven cleaner, though I did clean the doors well! I will have another crack at them next week.
There was a welcome return to quality time with Son and good bonding in general as the house is filled with people who like and love each other. I am profoundly grateful beyond words to be, for the first time in my life, in such a benign environment free of tension and resentment. I intend to savour every moment of it!
Such a favourable home environment is an ideal opportunity to develop spiritually, as gratitude tends to feed on itself, generating abundance and peace of mind. I intend to intently focus on gratitude and so magnify its power, and so for as much as possible prolong and amplify this positive experience.
A period of "semi-insomnia" involving early-waking has come to a very noticeable end this week, with the alarm waking me, and deep much-needed daytime meditations/naps! This is no bad thing! It indicates the absence of threat and internal harmony. Another thing to be grateful for!
