3. TODAY'S SELF OBSERVATION
After the unsettling effects of the remote hand of Daughter on Tuesday, it was the complete opposite experience with Son on Wednesday, as we enjoyed some great quality time. It is an endless source of fascination to me that I could have such extreme opposite experiences with my children. It is part of the synchronicity of observations I have experienced that makes me think that this character I play is at the very fulcrum of the universe, seeing positive and negative, big and small and just about every other polar scale extend to infinity in both directions.

This experience of both positive and negative has made for a truly fulfilling experience. This character is not fully immersed in the human experience but quietly observes it from within it all. This is the destiny, choice and preference of this particular character. To be truly conscious means to be lucid within the dream and though experiencing it, can also see it for what it is.

4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Do you want to see yourself as you think you are, or are you curious about what you truly are?
