Do you know this phrase by Yogi Bhajan? “First you create your habits and then your habits create you.”
Our habits can create our “caliber”.
Most people want to be happy. But many fail, due to a lack of “caliber”.
So lets observe our habits, from when we wake up in the morning to when we go to sleep at night. Because each one of those habits can affect us, whether we want them to or not.
Some of our habits can provide us with a sense of immediate wellbeing or pleasure, although they can result to be devastating in the long run. Imagine watching TV until late every day, or having a very unhealthy daily diet. At some point either of those habits would have an adverse effect on your physical and mental health.
On the other hand, other habits can seem more demanding, even though they favour our committment to living consciously and sensibly. Habits as small as deciding not to complain to ourselves, instead facing everything that happens to us with a smile. Or larger habits, such as getting up early in the morning to practice a sadhana.
Tangible habits like drinking a glass of water with lemon in the morning. Or subtle habits like being thankful for your food while your prepare it.
Its these habits, the ones we choose consciously, that will change us little by little, day after day and allow us to be guided by our soul, living a life that is more elevated.
So let’s mind our habits, whether they are small or big, tangible or subtle.
