3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
This week, with no pressing issues, I have an opportunity to "make hay while the sun shines", or to use another expression, put money where mouth is! Without the excuse of distractions I can consolidate and build up my mental strength and dend out some positive energy out into the Universe.
Events in the first half of this year have reminded me of the importance of faith, which enables you to draw on power beyond your immediate reach. The character/ego I play is the lens and screen through which consciousness is experienced, but it is a negligible fraction of who "I" am! My character is only the leaf on the tree - in entirety "I" am the tree!
This of course means that I can draw on the full resources of the tree to fully empower the temporary purpose of the leaf. This is where the hard work comes in! The concentration required to tap in to your "true self" is far beyond that which people use in everyday ego-driven lives.
However I have every incentive to persevere - my particular ego simply doesn't fit in to the culture around me and cannot do it alone. For this character, Enlightenment is a necessity! I will consequently strive on, because only by utilising the full resources of my True Self will this character live out its role to maximum effect.

To give up even before you’ve attempted something is actually arrogance—an affront to
the wondrous power of life within you and disrespectful to yourself.
