This is how u have a good day
Waking up as the third [last] watch of the night begins one gets up quickly thinking 'i will not indulge in the pleasures of sleeping, reclining and lazy stretching'.
Definitely not sleeping until sunrise snoring...
During the last watch of the night, sitting & pacing back & forth, one cleanses his mind of any qualities that would hold the mind in check.
During the day, sitting & pacing back & forth, cleanses his mind of any qualities that would hold the mind in check.
During the first watch of the night, sitting & pacing back & forth, he cleanses his mind of any qualities that would hold the mind in check.
During the second watch of the night, reclining on his right side, he takes up the lion's posture, one foot placed on top of the other, mindful, alert, with his mind set on getting up.
Practicing moderation in eating, guarding the senses and being devoted to wakefulness, that's how one cleanses the mind and has an auspicious day.
You shouldn't chase after the past
or place expectations on the future.
What is past
is left behind.
is as yet unreached.
Whatever quality is present
you clearly see right there,
Not taken in,
that's how you develop the heart.
what should be done today,
for — who knows? — tomorrow
There is no bargaining
with Mortality & his mighty horde.
Whoever lives thus ardently,
both day & night,
has truly had an auspicious day:
so says the Peaceful Sage.
"'Monks, I will teach you the summary & exposition of one who has had an auspicious day.' Thus was it said, and in reference to this was it said."https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/mn/mn.131.than.html
Not only on mother's day should one do this.
If possible one can spend the mother's day absorbed in meditation, preferably nirodhasamapatti.
