What activity do you fill your day with?

Living in a busy world, I have to prioritize my activities.  I stopped completely pointless activities like looking for women, getting caught in dramas, or being entertained by our pop culture and mass media.

Anyways, I like to see if you have any daily routines. 

My number one priority is meditate for 30 minutes.  I make sure I get it done before I go to work.  My work schedule is flexible luckily.  Just about every esoteric tradition I read about assert that it is more important to meditate everyday then to meditate for a long period of time.

My second priority is 30 minutes of physical exercise which according to many spiritual traditions is essential for spiritual growth.  Many Chinese monks are expert in martial art or Tai Chi.  Many Hindu's do yoga.  I also run and swim. 

And then I probably study something and brush up my knowledge in ancient Chinese and Sanskrit.  It makes a huge difference to read stuff in their original language.  I make sure I do this for an hour per day minimum.

If I have more time after that I amuse myself in some way.

Those routines look simple but it is difficult to follow as my "flesh" and physical desire will want to steer me toward other things, and also distractions come up all the time.

In my opinion social interaction is one of the most important things to what I need to work on.  To me a positive future depends highly on our ability to communicate and care for one another and to be able to realize the godforce in each and every one of us.  While I can see that you did not mean cutting off social interaction  by stopping the activity of looking for women, but there is a certain aspect to finding people to connect with and share your emotions and personal experienced that will help us all in a positive way.  I certainly can only speak for myself as we are all on a different path. 

As far as what activity I fill my day, I can not contribute anything interesting.  I am right now trying to best understand personally what it means to be a human.  What is important to "me".  I have for my whole life let others decide what I should do, now I have to walk the path unknown and I would like to try and understand where I am may be going first.

Captain, I cannot avoid social interaction neither can I agree that being a loner is good for you.  I haven't look for women for years, but lots of women do chase me for various reasons.  I do not want to procreate which would greatly hinders my spiritual path, and pleasuring a woman through sex is too much work.  If I can't fight my sexual urge, I rather masterbait.  If I meet a woman whom I can "click" with, I take her.  But they don't exist.

What activity do you fill your day with?


well, I am celibate (should that be bolded too;) but that's the nature of things for now.
Being Celibate is that an 'activity'?
sad

Re: What activity do you fill your day with?

An excellent and simple summary of what can steer one on the right path without getting to fanatical.
    Mediation sharpens the mind and keeps you meditating when your are just 'being' in life. Exercise cleans the body and sharpens the will.

   Well said!

I'll definitely check it out!  I have studied Taoism briefly.  It seems very similar to Buddhism, but Chinese Zen Buddhism is closer to what I believe.  (not the Japanese type)

Re: What activity do you fill your day with?

I used to be deep into Kabbalah and practiced every day. I used material from Crowley, Regardie and that helpful sort of "do it yoruself" magick book Modern magick my Donald Michael Kraig.  For about 5 years there I practiced every day and had AMAZING results spiritually. At the risk of using scientology terminology, lets say I felt very clear...lol. I have to be careful when I say clear ecause I used to use it alot, then people started asking me " are you a scientologist???" AHHHH!!!  That practice was a very fullfilling thing to be a part of. It is a very great form of self discovery and you can learn so much, it's almost limitless. Let alone all the other magickal languages and texts out there, along with gemetria. Im in a group now that is breaking down all of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos stories into Gemetria and we are discovering some very interesting things.

But anyways, the most satisfying daily "habits" I ever had was that process of self discovery found in ardent practice of Kabbalah.
