Songs of Eighteen "Ities" by Swami Sivananda
Take up any one virtue and develop it to a very high degree of perfection; eradicate in toto its opposite evil quality even in its most subtle form. Meditate on these virtues, on their benefits and the methods of cultivating them. Here is the Song of Eighteen "Ities":
regularity, absence of vanity,

Make This a Perfact Day
"Radiant Immortal Atman! This day is a new day. It has not been before and it shall not come once again. Ponder the uniqueness of this day, its specialty in being the one and only day of its kind, never to be compared with any other day that has gone by or any other day that will dawn. It is a part of God. God is timeless eternity, and a day is a little unit in this timelessness measured by man’s limited consciousness and bound by a now and then, a here and there." <<More>>.

Q & A on Spiritual Life and Sadhana from “May I Answer That?”- by Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.
I am not able to practice meditation for more than ten minutes. After that my mind begins to wander on sensual objects.
When you develop Ruchi or taste for Dhyana and Japa, you will be
able to sit longer for Japa and meditation. Before going to bed,
also in the morning at 4 o’clock, and before taking meal at noon,
you should do Japa and meditation. Just as you take tea three or
four times a day, so also, you should do Japa three or four times a
day. Do not worry if the mind wanders. By gradual practice, it will
come under your control. Do Kirtan when the mind wanders much. Do
Nama-smaran while walking and working also— Sri Ram, Sri Ram.
Swami Chidanandaji teaches us how to become secure. "If we only knew that what God does is always for our good, we would be like the kitten and not like the baby monkey. The baby monkey hangs on to the mother, and when the mother jumps from branch to branch, sometimes it loses its grip, falls down and dies. But the kitten lies down in one corner and cries for the mother. The mother cat comes and takes it away. There is no chance of the kitten falling down.
"We would know that self-effort is made only in order to know that no self-effort is necessary and we would surrender. 'Thy will be done' would always be our prayer.
