3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have experienced some internal resistance letting go of my ego! The problem with elevating your consciousness is that you leave behind not only the suffering but the joys in the first person as that character. But you cannot have it all ways!
It's right to understand what you're leaving behind, but I will persevere. I now know what bliss and joy feels like, so I've already fulfilled that intention and my circle of experience is now complete. I want to move on to the experience of universal consciousness from this particular single point in time and space while there is still the opportunity.

Although it is not known when the first carpets were produced, they were
most likely being made centuries before Christ, probably by nomads
in the heart of Central Asia as an attempt to insulate their tents.
Over the centuries, carpet weaving was carried across Asia and into
the Middle East by invading armies, traders, and migrating nomads.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Everything passes. Both soaring joys and crushing sorrows fade away like
a dream. However, the knowledge of having lived one’s life to the
fullest never disappears.
