WEDNESDAY 22nd MARCH 2011 07:40 GMT

THIS DAY IN WW2 (23.3.1941)
In the Mediterranean... German Stuka dive-bombers, with a fighter escort, conduct a raid on Malta. A total of 13 German planes are shot down while the British lose 2 fighters. British authorities decide to withdraw all bombers and flying boats from Malta as a result of the raid.

TODAY IN MY LIFE
Wednesday is always the sternest test of my character, although it gets off to a nice quiet start, so plenty of time to get my focus in the right place. A small amount of ironing to do. I must have needed my meditation yesterday because I was in trance for an hour! Today I will start it earlier or set an alarm.

The lounge curtains are shagged! I may measure up for new ones today, and re-arrange the lounge while I'm at it.

Yesterday the dehumidifier extracted: 1.76 pints = 1 litre : O drying laundry, although still very high. I vacuumed the dust filter, which probably boosted efficiency.

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I have been reflecting some more on how my ego cannot cope with certain situations. It just doesn't respond appropriately in these circumstances, or even to the thought/memory of them. Fortunately I'm at a stage where unless caught out, I can usually flit between ego and True Self simply by shifting focus. I think that before you are ready for enlightenment, you must be conviced that there has clearly been something very wrong with your perception.

I now see the ego as a concept of Self that is neither accurate nor in my case particularly useful. However my attention is not yet developped enough to avoid slipping back into default egoic thinking in certain circumstances. I'm working on it! When nothing short of trauma "bothers" me I will know I am there.

TODAY'S THOUGHT
Failure never stopped me, it was the giving up.

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Imagine what your attitude would be like if you were convinced that everything would work out O.K.
