3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It is with some trepidation that I return to the Weekend Job, as the meta-stable team in our department running the place gets broken up. This means new bods re-inventing the wheel and pissing people off before finally learning what the workers already know.
That said, I am fully aware that all things pass anyway and it's your response to circumstances that determines your outcomes. It's therefore a question of focus in the right place. Everywhere, including the Weekend Job, is an opportunity to practice my hypnotic skills, and if I want a life devoted to that profession, that's where I need to keep my mind, learning and developing as I go.

9. ZEN WISDOM
It is not about how others are or how society is. The most important thing is to ask yourself, “What should I do?” and “What can I do?” One who stands up with moral courage and conviction can change society and create waves of transformation around the world.
