To my understanding, most legitimate spiritual practices advocate daily practice. What is the difference between practicing everyday, and practicing say, once every two days, or twice every three days for instance? In ways of training the body it is often beneficial to give a day or two rest in between practice, can it be the same in matters of the mind and spirit? Does the consciousness, in its progression/development, need some occasional respite? Or are the constant recoils and obstacles that emerge in one's mind and life to disrupt daily practice merely things that need to be stoically ignored? Does one 'lose out' if they do not practice everyday? Or is it a matter of adapting the amount and intensity of sadhana to where one is at at that point in time?
