Your message to our chat service box was:
issue - overthinking, etc..
You have described your insight about your nature. You asked for the reason or the root cause of this feelings.
If you think deeply, the root of this is 'laziness'. See, you make rules, and then could not follow. When you critize situation, etc, then this means you had no clue that this can happen in future. If I have a clue, that this can happen, then I would definitely take precautions to avoid..
How to avoid? Far sight is needed. When you take an important decision, you should think of future.
2. Why can you not follow the rules you made for yourself?
For example, we BK (brahmins) are to folow a spiritual law - wake up early in monring no late than 4 am. BUT many of us cannot follow. Why?
We know that this is most important for self transformation. 4 am is called as Amritvela time (best time). In this time, we sit in Raja Yog (meditation). In early morning, everyone is sleeping and all minds are at rest. Hence the atmosphere is pure and peaceful. This is the best time to do any productive work. Best for self insight.
BUT, even when we know this all, we have not realised this. We do not give importance. We may think - even if i wake up late, i feel okay. Nothing more is needed. Same for you - If you take a decision - you should first completely understanding the IMPORTANCE of that decision (rule) for your benefit. Then you should take steps:
1. Understand the IMPORTANCE
2. Prepare the timetable for yourself (Sunday to Saturday)
3. Wake up early morning if possible. Site for meditation (with guided commentaries- Visit this page)
4. Sincerely observe yourself for atleast 1 DAY. See that you follow ALL the princles set by you.
5. Encourage yourself.
And yes, when you wake up early, after guided meditation, practice this Swaman (Hindi): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kYVRgC1PFM&list=PLVTJYOj3fHtHjdxqZhniGRCjWUv6MlRMY&index=1
Swaman is extreme benefit to the mind. Swaman means 'true self respect'. Listen & experience with these swaman commentaries for about 15 mins daily morning.
Doing all this is important. All 5 steps.
Tell us your progress via this email after 14 days of practice.
