3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
My body seems to be settling in to its new regime of low sugar and high Chromium. I perpetually like the prospect of something sweet but I'm not overwhelmed by craving or compulsion. My appetite is distinctly lower, and less satisfies me quicker. This is a promising start!
With body settling, mind is freed up to pursue its objectives without heavy distraction. Making a difference and staying present in the moment is hard work and the settling of mood is making this easier. I'm pleased with progress at this moment.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!

Even with today’s powerful antibiotics, bacterial pneumonia is the
most common complication of the flu, and most flu-related deaths are
due to it.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Ideal love is fostered only between two sincere, mature and independent
people. Real love is not two people clinging to each other; it can only
be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality.
