3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Instead, I will fast when I can do so discreetly, such as at the Weekend Job. On other days, I will have a single meal with Missus. With olanzapine blinding her peripheral awareness, it will be fairly easy to hide my new regime in plain sight. Another day of discreet fasting today will be an opportunity to observe myself and see if "the feeling" rises, falls or stays the same in intensity.

Is there anything in your life that is controlling or oppressing you? How will you break free?

9. ZEN WISDOM
Unless we live fully, not "sometime" in the future, but right now, true fulfillment in life will forever elude us. Rather than put things off till the future, we should find meaning in doing what we think is most important right now—setting our hearts aflame and igniting our lives. Otherwise, we will not be able to lead an inspired existence.
