1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
7th September 1571
THE "RIDOLFI PLOT" IS FOILED
Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk, was arrested for his involvement in a plan to overthrow Queen Elizabeth I and replace her with Mary, Queen of Scots. The Duke was later executed. Italian banker Roberto Di Ridolfi, who financed the plot, was safely in Paris at the time and was never caught. He ultimately returned to Florence, where he served as a senator.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have been somewhat distracted of late by trivial online amusements, but they have now kinda run their course, freeing my mind to refocus on self-development, although today will be largely devoted to clearing a housework backlog! To be fair to myself, I haven't had an uninterrupted Monday since July. Though Son still has another 2.5 weeks, he has a lot of his own stuff to do and I don't expect him to slow me down.
I am delighted and a little excited at the progress I'm making in mind-emptying - in calm and distraction-free conditions, I can do this at will! I now want to take every opportunity to strengthen my mind in the "good times" so it will be ready for any storms that may come and also to keep my neurosis well-managed.
I am now frequently visualizing my ultimate spiritual goal - to be entirely intuitively driven, and for consciousness to disentangle entirely from this character. In some sense, I am already no longer fully "human" - consciousness is above humanity, looking down on it. But I have no regrets that I can't go back or unlearn what I know - but my character was not having such a great time anyway and is now doing much better and making much more difference being "remotely observed"

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
A person sheds about 1.5 million skin flakes an hour, most of which becomes embedded in our carpets.
9. ZEN WISDOM
The course of our lives is determined by how we react to adversity. The nature of that response determines a person’s true worth and greatness.
