3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
A clear diary for the next four weeks gives me a clear run to develop both self and Practice between all the standard stuff. Never have my personal circumstances been so benign! I intend to respond by "making hay while the sun shines" to make myself as robust as possible going into the future.
I have very much enjoyed writing and proof-reading my new book, which compresses a lifetime of learning into a few pages. Feedback from proof-readers notwithstanding, I intend to self-publish in February. It is already proving a great reference for myself! I have never previously put everything I have learned into one place.
I have realized that what makes life fulfilling is not being surrounded by opulence, nice though that is, but rather having a clear idea what you're here for and having the opportunity to pursue it. I know exactly why I'm here and what I'm doing!
