3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have come to terms with the fact that I am fragile! I am fully aware that the reason I am NOT broken is only partly due to my own efforts and in greater part due to benevolent circumstances. However there is a certain strength in knowing everything could go pear-shaped at any moment. You learn to live a grateful fulfilling life in the moment, leading the life that's right for you.
Though on many an occasion I have simply not wanted to go on playing this character anymore, I know that the most fulfilling experience comes from achieving something in the face of extreme difficulty. At this time the Discipline of Grounding is crucial - to maximize your power by focusing all your concentration on this specific moment.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Is your attention in the right place?

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Mock The Week - Unlikely Instructions
Studies show that people clean up more if there is a faint smell of
cleaning liquid in the air, they become more competitive if they see a
briefcase, and they become more cooperative if they glimpse words like
“dependable”all without being aware of the change or what triggered it.
Scientists note that this shows how everyday sights, smells, and
sounds, can activate the subconscious mind.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Happiness does not exist as an isolated quality, nor does it conform to a
single fixed pattern. Happiness is something that breathes and lives in
the relationships between one person and another.
