How do we find peace and joy in our lives? How do we live our fullest potential and not get swept up into the darkness and negativity that can sometimes seem to dominate our world today? These are tough questions with seemingly no perfect answer.
Sri Swami Sivananda taught his students how to achieve this peace by using the Eighteen ities Song. He believed when one focused upon and cultivated each of these “ities” or virtues, one could begin to transcend everyday things and find a deeper meaning in life.
The Eighteen Ities
Serenity, Regularity, absence of Vanity,
Sincerity, Simplicity, Varacity,
Equanimity, Fixity, non-Irritability,
Adaptability, Humility, Tenacity,
Integrity, Nobility, Magnanimity,
Charity, Generosity & Purity
The ity Project begins now. For the next eighteen weeks, we will work to cultivate each of these virtues. Follow along with this blog, my instagram, Facebook and Twitter to gain insights and inspirations each week. Eighteen weeks from now, my hope is that you will feel better focused, more at peace, and closer to your true nature – just in time to move into 2016!
