3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
The purpose of this perspective then, while it still exists, is to pass on the information it has gathered, so other perspectives can then keep the insights alive. I can rest easy that this I have already done and every moment I continue to do so is a bonus. The universe is well on the way to understanding itself in essential nature, if not all the mechanics.
This character, when I keep my consciousness from being lost in it, is fun to play and blissful. However it is also a challenge because its mind has many dark places that consciousness can get lost in. This can happen even in benign circumstances simply by an unguarded chain of thought. Consciousness has no objection in principle to being lost in character, but getting lost in this one results only in a nightmare! It is therefore necessary in this perspective to keep universally conscious as much as possible. This is also better for all the other characters who find affinity with me.
There is an acceptance that there not full control over this character and that universal consciousness does get lost. But while I cannot make it invincible, I can maximize its strength by good disciplines, particularly on the Attitude Of Gratitude, meditation, and to focus on "the hum", the gentle ongoing orgasm that you experience when universally conscious.

Russell Peters on cheap Indians
After criticizing Rome’s transition from a republic to an empire, the famous philosopher/rhetorician Cicero was murdered and had his head and hands displayed on the Rostra in the Forum Romanum. It is rumoured that Fulvia, the wife of the influential Roman politician, Antony, pulled out Cicero’s tongue and stabbed it repeatedly with her hairpin.
9. ZEN WISDOM
When facing adversity, we may think we’ve reached our limit, but actually the more trying the circumstances, the closer we are to making a breakthrough. The darker the night, the nearer the dawn. Victory in life is decided by that last concentrated burst of energy filled with the resolve to win.
