If we want to have quick progress in our sadhana (spiritual practices) we must kkeep steady a daily routine, morning and evening and during the day.
Ego doesn't like routine and repetition but there is no other mean to overcome and dissolve the ego except a very well organized daily program .
When we repeat our practices in the same time in the same place then our body, energy and mind perform better and more efficiently. We can enter in meditation mode more easily if we do meditation in the same time same place and with the same routine.
Time is fleeting, life span is very short, use your time industriously. Use every moment of your life for self-realization.
Have the attitude, that today is your last day in order to overcome laziness and procrastination and do your best effort here and now, and at the same time, that you have infinite time to accomplish your goal (Self realization) in order to avoid, stress, anxiety and frustration.
Be practical, be flexible, be open, use your common sense.
Have steady determination and tenacity; Be sincere and patient; preserve, forbear and accept pain as a part of life and sadhana, face difficulties as an opportunity for growing.
Offer everything you do (your sadhana also, every practice) to God. Have faith in your self and God. Everything depends on faith!
