3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I learned something new about myself at the Weekend Job - the importance of keeping hydrated! Not getting a drink before the start of the shift, I felt awful, aggressive and in a foul mood until first break when after a pint of coffee I was a completely different person. I ensured I was fully hydrated after that!
This experience makes me wonder if a lot of the aggressive behaviour I had previously attributed to hunger was actually due to dehydration. Certainly the success of Operation Equinox now clearly requires adequate hydration - I shall ensure that happens!
Keeping my drastic calorie-reduction from Missus will be more difficult over the next fortnight of school holiday, but not impossible! With her lack of peripheral awareness, I believe I'll manage just fine.
Keeping hydrated doesn't stop my unstable moods, but it certainly damps them down, making self-management a lot easier. I now want Operation Equinox to continue automatically (aside from the daily blog photo) freeing up my consciousness to focus on emptying the mind of unnecessary thought and rising to Higher Consciousness.

According to the Outer Space Treaty, the moon is under the same jurisdiction as international waters. The treaty also says the moon can be used for peaceful purposes by all nations, and it prohibits weapons of mass destruction or military bases of any kind on the moon.
9. ZEN WISDOM
“Thank you” is the essence of nonviolence. It contains respect for the other person, humility and a profound affirmation of life.
