3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Today's a day of tying up loose ends in my Practice before putting it on ice for July. I will then have an abundance of free time to enjoy! I intend there to be plenty of joyful indulgence but also spiritual development, taking consciousness out of this character for prolonged periods.
Whilst most people just get on with their life experience, some individuals cease being in pursuit of their character's desires and become nodes of consciousness through which the universe understands itself. At first in this process there's a frustration in realizing most people are actually asleep and you feel surrounded by idiots, then as awareness continues to grow you see that everything is set and inevitable, just Physics in action.
For a while then you live on two levels at once - as character and as Universal Consciousness. Ultimately, as you trust intuition entirely, consciousness lifts entirely above the character and then you are simply observing a movie, albeit an intense 3D-surround sound one.
I don't think this path needs to be for everyone - this character itself would love to live in blissful ignorance, but its unhappy experiences inevitably led to consciousness needing to escape to enlightenment. Having awoken, consciousness can't go back to delusion. The stillness available over the next few weeks affords the opportunity to lift entirely out of character and simply enjoy the story.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Of all facial expressions, the smile may be the most deceptive. There are around 18 different smiles, including polite, cruel, false, self-effacing, and so on. But only one reflects genuine happiness; this is known as the Duchenne smile, in honor of the French neurologist who determined this phenomenon, Guillaume-Benjamin-Amand Duchenne (de Boulogne).
9. ZEN WISDOM
One cannot expect to become happy without hardship or effort. Because we challenge ourselves we become strong. To become strong is to become happy.
