3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I am convinced of the need to spread my consciousness over "many levels at once" from the universal to the ego. I feel that distracted by the two-month long "Weekend Job Affair" I was more focused than I would like on the ego, which inevitably results in being anxious and overwhelmed.
With that business concluded, and no immediate crisis visible, I have begun to redress this balance and spend my quieter moments connecting to the universal. The default background focus I'm intending to achieve is "submissive gratitude whilst alert for opportunities"
My intended default emotion is gratitude, because this is the healthiest and most productive. But it requires mental energy and focus to maintain! I now see a gratitude mindset absolutely crucial to a fulfilling life experience and from this point there will be a continual effort to keep my consciousness in this mode, being particularly grateful for my connection between my ego and my Higher Self.

6. TODAY'S ONELINER
According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking.

means that for the average person, they'd rather be
in the coffin than doing the eulogy. :D
7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Top 10 the IT Crowd Moments
When Pluto was discovered in 1930, many people wrote in suggesting names
for the new planet. Some suggestions were Cronus, Persephone, Erebus,
Atlas, and Prometheus. Eleven-year-old Venetia Burney suggested the name
Pluto. She thought it would be a good name since Pluto is so dark and
far away, like the god of the underworld. On May 1, 1930, the name Pluto
became official, and the little girl received a £5 note as a reward.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Keep moving forward, even one or two steps, in your own way. Those who
live out their lives to the fullest, unperturbed by the noisy clamor
