The Good Life - 02/01/2023 - Death is being done and finished *

Boy, I sure did work myself into a state of excitement by the end of this video! My new Scriptwriting principle coupled with the Principle of Fun are proving to be a powerful combination when used together. I have to keep that in mind moving forward.

This will be my last Good Life Meditation video for a week and a half before Yumiko and I leave for Japan tomorrow, after which point I won’t have opportunity to make these on the road (though I will keep up the practice of doing this important exercise in my head at the start of each day). “The Good Life travel edition” perhaps? 🙂

Today, Yumiko and I will finalize our packing and complete a few readiness tasks before driving to the airport tomorrow at 5:00 AM. I can’t wait to go and see Japan again for the first time in almost nine years! And what is this pleasant sensation I feel now on my skin? Is it the soft winds of life gently shifting direction to the East? And is that the scent of plum blossoms I smell?
