3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Unfortunately I then went on to have a bad dream! When I say "bad" it wasn't a nightmare, but to do with frustration - trying to find my passport that someone else had lost, with a sub-plot about getting back some money that I originally refused but now could make use of.
It's very rare that I remember a dream so vividly and I've been contemplating it since waking. I find it fascinating to have had such an intense experience cooked-up entirely by my own mind. Everything that happened in it was ultimately "me". The prevailing emotion in this dream, frustration, suggests I'm subconsciously holding on to things, and my meditations need to be about letting go and acceptance.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Happiness doesn’t exist on the far side of distant mountains. It is within you, yourself. Not you, however, sitting in idle passivity. It is to be found in the vibrant dynamism of your own life as you struggle to challenge and overcome one obstacle after another, as you clamber up a perilous ridge in pursuit of that which lies beyond.
