3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Yesterday I sat in front of the laptop intending to promote myself - and got nowhere! I ended up messing about on Tumblr instead. Time to step back and get some fresh ideas! I am going to do some research and reading and generally have a self-development period and hopefully go back to it next week refreshed.
The default ego-mindset is to feel overwhelmed, which I obviously can't allow to happen, so constant mental effort is required to raise my consciousness to higher levels and keep focus and concentration on high-power.

Called “re-entrants,” dolphins once lived on land and looked and
behaved something like a small wolf but with five hoof-like toes on
each foot instead claws. Some dolphins still have hair on their heads
and the Amazon River dolphin has hair on its beak. Dolphins also
have remnant finger bones in their flippers, a forearm, wrists, and
a few remnant leg bones deep inside their bodies.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Health is not simply the absence of illness. Real health is the will to
overcome every form of adversity and use even the worst of circumstances
as a springboard for new growth and development. Simply put, the
essence of health is the constant renewal and rejuvenation of life.
