From the Course in Miracles text 4.II.6: "Self esteem in ego terms means nothing more than that the ego has deluded itself into accepting its reality, and is therefore less predatory. This "self esteem" is always vulnerable to stress, a term which refers to any perceived threat to the ego's existence."
I am pleased that my heel feels pretty good this morning. If necessary, I could go walk a marathon; and that is an awesome thought. Instead, I am headed for the elliptical and then to work. Meetings all week kicked off today with the Phosgene Summit. Interesting title.
