3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Relations with respective favoured children were fully repaired in the evening and everyone went to bed with equilibrium restored.
Equilibrium is of course something that must be fought for every day! Things left unattended naturally degrade to chaos without input, as the Second Law of Thermodynamics states. My mind and body therefore require my daily focus in the right places. I can only relax this focus after bedtime!
I have come to terms with the fact that neither mind nor body automatically behave according to my preferences or purposes, and therefore at times rest and repair are required, as well as maintenance and careful driving.
I did not after all "choose" the various aspects of my character, I was dealt them! I have therefore experienced the liberation of fully accepting my character, whilst at the same time taking full responsibility its management.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
