Wed 29 Dec

I wonder if there's a link between my own level of Self-awareness and my outward happiness. I feel like there might be. Lately, I've become increasingly aware of my own body and physical self, and that awareness has both encouraged me (I feel my Self and my own potential) and discouraged me (I'm disappointed by how much weight I've gained). At any rate, whenever I'm successful at turning that awareness more deeply within, I'm happiest. I derive the most happiness from contemplating what is truly Real within me.

Later the same day

If I'm learning anything from this day, it's that I function best and enjoy my contemplation way more when I'm relaxed, alone, and silent. When you're trying to get in touch with yourself, you really need quiet time alone.

Silence. OM... The purity of sound - the soundless sound - the peaceful sanctuary of life within our hearts. I love living there! I must remember to return there whenever I start to feel agitated or upset or angry.
