3. TODAY’S SELF-OBSERVATION
My fresh approach got off to a good start with shift 1 of the Weekend Job going well. Posted up at the quiet end for most of it, I got my breaks on time, enjoyed good company when I went, and was left alone to get on with the job.
The general affirmation of all spirituality is that the ego is not adequately equipped to face all the challenges and requires union with the Divine in order to find fulfilment. To be completely fulfilled, the ego has to completely dissolve into the Divine. This can only happen when the ego draws the conclusion that the Divine has all the answers, and is therefore willing to submit to it completely. However I have also concluded that the divine cannot be accessed by absolute faith in anything that has come through the conclusions of other people and their ideas. People can pass on a useful toolbox of techniques and experiences, but what to do in any given moment has to be a product of faith in personal intuition and not in any dogma spoken or written down by men.

9. THE WISDOM I’VE LEARNED FROM OTHERS
“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement… get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”
