3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It's been a great weekend for everyone with plenty of amusement and happiness for all. With such a positive experience, it's now important to consolidate with all the sound disciplines I have learned. Like a diabetic, I only keep healthy by doing all the right things every day.
My prime goal remains reducing my ego to the role of a lens for my consciousness, focusing on the things that will fulfil my life-purpose. I intend to draw all the required strength and guidance from my faith in my Higher Self. Days such as these undistracted by adversity are best spent in consolidation, making oneself increasingly mentally robust.
