What I've learned since moving to D.C. (some of which should be obvious):

5201.  Dietary saturated fats don’t raise blood saturated fats.  It is carbs and sugar (and excess protein) that cause your liver to produce the saturated fats found in your blood;
5202.  A woman sometimes seems to want to be the most important thing in her man’s life.  However, if she is the most important thing then she feels her man has made her the number one priority and is not fully dedicated or directed to divine growth and service.  She will feel her man’s dependence on her for his happiness and this will make her feel smothered by his neediness and clinging.  A woman really wants her man to be totally dedicated to his highest purpose and also to love her fully.  Although she would never admit it, she wants to feel that her man would be willing to sacrifice their relationship for the sake of his highest purpose;
5203.  If a woman has become the point of your life, you are lost.  You have a gift to give, a purpose to fulfill, a deep heart-impulse that moves you.  If you have lost touch with this impulse then you will begin to feel ambiguous in your life.  You will make decisions because you have to, but they won’t be guided by a deeper sense of purpose.  You may take on your woman’s purposes because they are stronger than yours.  You may adapt your need for direction to externally regulated purposes becoming a cogwheel company man or a dead-ended husband and parent without leaving yourself open to your own greatest vision;
5204.  Be careful not to substitute default responsibilities for true purpose.  It is easy to fill your day with chores and obligations coming up for air only long enough to watch some TV or have quick sex.  It’s also easy to give up entirely on living a life of absolute commitment to truth, settling for the common life of absolute commitment to work, family, intimacy and friends.  Yet, you can only be a superior professional, father, husband and friend when you are living these relationships as gifts given from your core not as what’s left over because you don’t have the guts to discover your core impulse and live on its basis;
5205.  If you aren’t living from your core, giving your fullest gifts, everyone will feel your lack of true purpose.  Your kids will challenge your authority.  Your colleagues will take advantage of you.  Your friends won’t expect much of you.  And your wife won’t trust you;
5206.  Even though she may seem to want to be the center of your life, she doesn’t.  She wants you to know the center of your life, so she can trust you.  Even if you must go off somewhere without her to fulfill your purpose, like a man going to war, she will be able to trust you and love you as long as your purpose is real and true;
5207.  If you are always watching TV, reading magazines or gambling, your woman will feel your trivialization of life.  She will feel you settling for less and will resent the frivolity of your will.  But if have discovered the purpose springing from your deepest core and if your entire life is aligned by this deep purpose, your woman will feel the truth of your choices.  Though she may not always like your choices, she will love them and she will love you for having the courage to live your truth.  She can relax and trust you because, even if you enjoy watching TV, reading magazines and gambling now and then, she knows that you would never compromise your highest purpose in life, which includes, but is not centered around nor dependent on your relationship with her;
5208.  Apparently, I can also say I’ve been to a rally with Jessica Chastain and Hermione Granger (i.e., Emma Watson);
5209.  After learning about body language, I (now) find bad posture in a woman (to be) unattractive;
5210.  Inspiration is a state of being here and now in this material world, while at the same time reconnecting to our spiritual origins.  In order to be receptive to inspiration, we need to eliminate the ego clutter that accumulates all too easily for most of us;
5211.  If you’re attempting to simplify your life here, you don’t need to purchase more of what will complicate and clutter your life.  If you can’t afford it, let it go until you can.  By going into debt, you’ll just add layers of anxiety onto your life.  That anxiety will then take you away from your peace, which is where you are when you’re in-Spirit.  When you have to work extra hard to pay off debts, the present moments of your life are less enjoyable; consequently, you’re further away from the joy and peace that are the trademarks of inspiration.  You’re far better off to have less and enjoy the days of your life than to take on debt and invite stress and anxiety where peace and tranquility could have reigned;
5212.  Do what your heart tells you will bring you joy rather than determining whether it will be cost-effective.  If you’d really enjoy that whale-watching trip, for instance, make the decision to do so.  Don’t deny yourself the pleasures of life because of some monetary detail.  Don’t base your purchases on getting a discount and don’t rob yourself of a simple joy because you didn’t get a break on the price.  You can afford a happy, fulfilling life;
5213.  Make an attempt to free yourself from placing a price tag on everything you have and do, after all, in the world of Spirit, there are no price tags.  Don’t make money the guiding principle for what you have or do; rather, simplify your life and return to Spirit by finding the inherent value in everything.  A dollar does not determine worth even though you live in a world that attempts to convince you otherwise;
5214.  Forgive yourself and welcome love back into your life.  When you can do this, a kind of balancing occurs.  Rather than atoning for faults with guilt, you are more committed to promoting joy and service.  You will begin to do what you originally came here to do;
5215.  Notice the acts of kindness other people do rather than their shortcomings.  We are all good, decent, loving souls who occasionally get lost.  When you can focus on the good in another and hold that in your mind, you are acting from your higher self.  This can help dissipate fear and anger;
5216.  Remind yourself of how much you have to give away and of how precious and valuable your giving is;
5217.  Accept that you are enough.  You do not need to be anything you are not.  You do not need to prove yourself;
5218.  The joy and fulfillment found in the process of achieving your dreams and living with passion is often confused with the result of being rich.  Do not measure your life’s journey to success with the fickle accompaniment of monetary and riches.  Your journey should be measured by the memories gathered, not the receipts; the moments spent in passion, not cash; and happiness shared, not bought;
5219.  How to Find Your Money Personality: 1.  Protector (Myers-Briggs Types: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ & ISFJ): By nature, you’re very conservative.  You think ahead and plan for the future.  You are consistent in your plan and often end up working the banking system, but not taking big Wall Street risks.  Though it’s a great way to be, it’s hard for you to spend in the here and now on things like taking a vacation.  You could also make bad on-the-spot decisions out of sheer panic.  Advice: Prepare for the unexpected by having a full emergency fund, which should cover at least six months of net income; 2.  Planner (Myers-Briggs Types: ENTJ, ENTP, INTJ & INTP): Definitely a more long-term investing type of person, you are okay to take a calculated risk as long as you have a contingency plan.  You’ll likely track your finances closely.  You’re great at big-picture thinking, but be careful that you don’t become so focused on the forest that you don’t see the trees.  You could miss the opportunities right in front of you because of “analysis paralysis.”  Advice: Choose a portion of your income to divert immediately to long-term savings and set up another account specifically for “mad money” to use for indulgences today; 3.  Pleaser (Myers-Briggs Types: ENFJ, ENFP, INFJ & INFP): You take money personally.  It’s like an extension of yourself.  How you spend and save is an expression of your identity.  Think of the word pleaser two ways; pleasing yourself or others.  It’s different from planning because a pleaser is about emotional and relational needs in themselves and others.  Be careful others don’t take advantage of you and watch out for overspending because “you’re worth it.”  Advice: Steer clear of toxic friends who can manipulate your best intentions; and 4.  Player (Myers-Briggs Types: ESTP, ESFP, ISTP & ISFP): You love having the freedom to react to the moment and, since you’re characterized by a tendency to be compulsive, you’re unlikely to think long-term.  You’re often in the group with the highest financial risk.  The good news is you’re optimistic, resourceful and have a can-do attitude.  Most entrepreneurs are this personality type.  Advice: Slow down and focus on the advantages of your personality type to bring in and save money;
5220.  A man’s track record means nothing to the feminine.  A man could be perfect for ten years, but if he’s an asshole for 30 seconds his woman acts like he’s always been one.  The feminine responds to the moment of energy forgetting her man’s history of past behavior.  A man’s past behavior is irrelevant to his woman’s feeling in the moment.  But men base much on another man’s history of behavior so they think their own track record should count for something.  But to a woman, it doesn’t;
5221.  Instead of getting angry because she’s so upset that you made one little mistake in a long series of successes, instantly shift the energy between you.  Remember, history is irrelevant to the feminine, so your mistake is as easily forgotten as your successes.  As soon as you see she’s upset, immediately assume happiness.  Shock her with your love.  Make her smile and laugh with your humor.  Lick her neck or lift her off the ground and pretend you’re King Kong.  Surprise her in some loving way and the emotional slate will be wiped clean.  Your momentary failure will be effectively vanished as irrelevant as the long line of your successes;
5222.  Restore love and happiness in the present moment and don’t justify your little mistake by referring to your long line of successes;
5223.  A woman must be able to trust you to take charge if she relaxes her own masculine edge.  This is true financially, sexually, emotionally and spiritually.  The man doesn’t have to actually do all the work, but he must be able to steer the course if his woman is going to relax into her feminine without fear;
5224.  If you want your woman to be able to relax into her feminine and shine her natural radiance then you must relieve her of the necessity to be in charge.  This doesn’t mean you need to boss her around.  It means you need to know where you are heading and how you are going to get there, in every way, including financially and spiritually;
5225.  If you have the slightest uncertainty or ambiguity about your financial future, your woman will feel it.  You don’t have to say anything about it.  She’ll feel your doubt or ambiguity in your body, eyes and the tone of your voice.  It’s not that you have to make a lot of money; you just have to be responsible for your finances and take your future into account.  What’s important is that you are clear, accountable and directed from your deepest core of wisdom.  Then, your woman can relax.  She knows where you stand and what your plans are.  She can feel your integrity.  She can trust your direction because she knows it comes from your deepest core.  She is not swimming in the air of your uncertainty, but standing on solid ground, the ground that you’ve provided by your clarity;
