Isn’t this the best? Lucky guy and fox.

Origins of this project can be read here.

Confession:
I’m a tempered conspiracy theorist. I like to hear the theories, I tend to buy into them, but it’s all tempered by an understanding that I just have to focus on my own path and heart song. That I do buy into many of them, makes it hard for me to stay comfortable in the knowingness that I’ll survive the apocalypse unscathed. I’ve already got a bit of PTSD, fer chrissake, I don’t know how much more stressful experience this system can take.

Oracle:
- Went to see The Dark Knight Rises in the IMAX theater – protected by 4 SFPD at the exits – and found myself in seat 37 without trying.
- Found this quote from Thich Naht Hanh yesterday and it really made me happy:

Do not fight against pain; do not fight against irritation or jealousy. Embrace them with great tenderness, as though you were embracing a little baby. Your anger is yourself, and you should not be violent toward it. The same thing goes for all your emotions.

I’m glad to be reminded of Zen. It makes me feel grounded.

Body:
Drank two cups of this beautiful tea.
Had an energizing smoothie.
Drank a lot of water.
Rested.

Virtue/Vice:
Vice: I did not post anything for Day 15.
Virtue: I am okay with making the decision to go to bed without posting anything for Day 15.

Relinquish:
Made myself cook dinner, even tho I wanted to be lazy and get a burrito. I did have a slice of New York style cheese pizza as an appetizer. So, um, I let go of some sloth-like feelings.

Inspiration/Gods:
Remembering my Taoist and Zen-like spiritual roots. Feeling comfort in the memories and acknowledgement of their place in my spirit.

Structure:
I made a bunch of things happen today but I could have rested more.
