3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I shall remember this weekend as the one of significant brain-malfunction - none in ways that did serious damage but enough to cause me concern. For example Missus WASN'T seeing Daughter this weekend but on the forthcoming Tuesday, although I had convinced myself she was. I also purchased a bus pass when I already had one, and suffered a particularly low mood on Saturday for absolutely no circumstantial reason.
In a desperate bid to raise my mood before I caused any grief, I broke my processed-sugar embargo and subsequently experienced a sugar-rush that felt like I normally do when I'm hungry.
My only consolation in a weekend where both the hardware of my brain and the software of my mind seemed to go haywire was that throughout I was conscious of it. Beneath this chaos was a quiet awareness observing it.
The conclusion I have drawn from this is that for me there is absolutely no other option but the path of Higher Consciousness. This character's mind is just too malfunctional to get lost in - it will only turn into a nightmare experience.
To maintain Higher Consciousness there are things I must do I recently haven't done enough of - sleep and meditation! I have used an upsurge in clients as an excuse but the reality is I can't live an ego-driven and enlightened life at the same time. With my character's brain not really up to the job, the choice is a no-brainer! I will get more out of the final third of this life-experience from the perspective of Higher Consciousness.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Each person possesses a precious inner treasure of infinite worth. To
remain unaware of this and stumble about in spiritual poverty is a
tragic waste. In contrast, a person fully awakened to the jewel-like
dignity of their own life is capable of truly respecting that treasure
