3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It was gratifying to see Son and Missus perkier yesterday and I would like to think I made a difference! Son is already discovering for himself that making a difference is what makes you feel fulfilled at the end of the day.
With my personal situation quiet I have another golden opportunity to strengthen my concentration skills and to practise living intuitively. The internal silence which I can now create is truly blissful beyond any other experience, and when I can maintain it indefinitely, life will be heaven-on-earth completely regardless of circumstances.
I have up to now believed that blissful ignorance would have been preferable to my actual experience, but I am now reviewing that opinion, because internal silence is a bliss beyond price. Of course, that is easy to say while circumstances are benign. I intend to have focus robust enough to live in Higher Consciousness regardless of circumstance
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
What is the most blissful situation you can imagine?

We are not defeated by adversity but by the loss of the will to strive.
However devastated you may feel, so long as you have the will to fight
on, you can surely triumph.
