A Lesson in Subtle Awareness: The Plan

As a vata provoked westerner I found the concept of routine extremely challenging upon first glace. The only routine I have had in most of my life is constant change: in my daily schedule, eating habits, etc. I even found a job that exaggerates my tendency toward irregular life patterns, which until now always felt like a freeing notion that released me from the daily grind. I decided to try a mini life overhaul in which I would eat in silence as much as possible, practice sadhana every morning, eat lunch every day, eat my biggest meal as lunch, eat only three meals a day and wake up every day before dawn!
