Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality and become more congruent within our personality.
Today, make practical use of your time here; if you have not already started a 'spiritual journal', a notebook of useful tips and personal goals, do it now. For-sure you have a little exercise book lying around waiting for your Love to be poured into it!
To do or not to do. This is choice.
Why chose 'to do'? You have been reading here for some time now. There is something which draws you to this reading. Continual reading of any type of text will result in changes within oneself… however subtle. Investing such time in reading means a genuine interest - desire, even - to bring something of what is read into one's own life. Vedanta is the original, tried and tested, 'self-help' program! There comes a point where one must become serious about application of the principles and values expounded. This can be done 'ad hoc', or it can be done systematically. The daily review, writing it down, aids objectivity and self-assessment. It also, when looked through at the end of a year, say, demonstrates clearly what improvements have been achieved.
The journal can be used for different aspects at different times. Setting the goal of memorising key Sanskrit terms, for example, or japa sadhana goals, or behaviour/personality goals … it is said that to change in this manner, we need to make determined and aware effort for 21 days, at which point effort begins to become habit.
For habit not to become rote, we need to monitor, so the journal now becomes our visible conscience.
What are you waiting for. Get it going. Or not. The choice is yours.
