3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
On two occasions now at the Weekend Job I have been LIED about. Though there were no lasting external consequences in either case, it has strengthened my resolve to be in a position where I pick my own "customers". I have already on too many occasions in my life been the victim of other people's agendas. I no longer take such machinations lying down, but I want to be in a position where I don't have to deal with assholes at all.
Anger, if you can manage it, is I have found a highly useful force. I rather enjoy the power-rush it brings and seeing bullies back off from it - no one gives you grief lightly. New assholes, once bitten, are twice shy. Secondly, it gives you "oomph" - the drive to succeed in your goals. The stronger your hand, the less vulnerable you are.
However, all this wrath needs to be tempered with a certain humility. I don't forget that whilst you can become robust, you are never invincible or indispensable. Furthermore it's particularly important not to unleash your wrath on the innocent. Everyone needs friends and allies, and it's important to treat such folks with respect and gratitude.
In short, all aspects of your character, light and dark, can be utilized and united to achieve a constructive goal, the light to achieve it, the dark to defend it. My Dark Side is no longer my enemy, it's a useful ally serving my purpose.

6. TODAY'S ONELINER
What I lack in eloquence, I make up for in…you know...stuff...and...things... :D
7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The warriors of Attila, king of the Huns, (A.D. 450) preserved their meat by placing fresh meat under their saddles. All the bouncing squeezed fluids from the meat, and the horse’s sweat salted the meat and removed more moisture. When the warrior stopped to eat, they had a dried and salted meal.
9. ZEN WISDOM
The biggest obstacles to our progress exist within our own lives in the form of cowardice and the tendency to give up. Breaking through these barriers will unleash a surging wave of change.
