Carpe Diem’s “Tackle It Tuesday” #2, Regularity




Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

First I have to apologize, because I am a day later than planned, but … well sometimes time isn’t at my side. This is our second episode of “Tackle It Tuesday” in which I will introduce the second “ity” based on “The Song of the 18-ity’s” by Sri Swami Sivananda (1887-1963).

The “ity” for this week is “Regularity”. Regularity is the base of everyone’s life, but it is also the base of your spiritual excercise. It’s the best way to calm your spirit (mind). This regularity you can see in the most Ashrams. They follow a structured pattern during the day and that pattern helps to adapt their spiritual excercise into their mind, heart and spirit. It’s similar with the wear of a millstone, which is becoming more smoother during the years.
To get a regular life your life has to be like those millstones … regularity in your life is smoothness to the max. Than you don’t have to think how will I do it today. It’s a way of conditioning like Pavlov’s dog once.

Regularity can bring peace into your life. Make a day-structure and your life will become easier and smoother … Cherish the moments which will come as you follow in the steady vastness of your daily routines.

  1. Some how I missed this… that’s what happens when one doesn’t follow things … there is no regularity 🙂

    change is consistent
    a new day brings pond ripples
