3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It took some time to figure out where and how I was going to take daily time-lapse frames of my weight loss, but I finally settled on the hallway door to the kitchen and mounted the camera on the stepladder in a reproducible fixed position. I now just have to get used to the daily discipline of taking the shots!
Self-discipline in general is on the up for this character, resulting in more stuff done, more purpose fulfilled and more time in Higher Consciousness. My aim of course is to be perpetually in Higher consciousness!
I am provided with a daily reminder of the necessity - dark daydreams! I am snapping out of them faster but I would like to avoid slipping into them at all! With distractions at an all-time low, it's a golden opportunity to elevate mindfulness to the point where it no longer happens.

Thailand’s and the world’s longest reigning monarch is Bhumibol Adulyadej, who became King Rama IX in June 1946. He was born in the U.S. in 1927 when his father was studying medicine at Harvard. He owns a patent on a form of cloud seeding and holds a degree in engineering from Switzerland. He also plays the sax and composed Thailand’s national anthem.
9. ZEN WISDOM
The exclusive pursuit of one’s own interests cannot bring true happiness. It is in striving for the sake of others that the great path to genuine happiness is opened.
