The meaning of the days of the week – and some new suggestions.

As we plod through life, one day at a time, we do so in a cycle of 7 days called a week.Technically the first day of the week is Sunday, but capitalism has diverted that to Monday. Sunday obviously means the day of the “Sun”. Monday means day of the “Moon”. so those two days are pretty easy to guess. It’s the remaining 5 days that are not obvious, because they are all named after various pagan gods. 

Tuesday means Twia’s day. 

Wesdesday means Woden’s day.   

Thursday is Thor’s day.

Friday is Freya’s day

Saturday is Saturns  day.

Every week day is tied to a planet and the actual five days are also tied to various old pagan god and goddesses (Norse and Latin). I am not going to explain further, as that will take time and will distract the plot of this blog. Which is to make a suggestion of alternative days. (you can look up the info on Google by typing in “Meanings of the days of the week”.

As i am a metaphysician and a metaphysicist may i suggest that the days of the week be based on various virtues. I can suggest the main two as being the weekend days, and the other five as being the work days. Day number one would be based on “Gifting to self”. Day number two would be based on “Gifting to others”. This will then fits in with the eleventh commandment – “Love yourself and others wholly and unconditionally“. (“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you.”[ john 13:34]

Notice the order of the days – self first and others second. This is the correct Spiritual order of gifting as we are commanded to love One first. One is the old fashioned name for the self (“how is one today?”).

The second day is for gifting to others, as the old word “another” literally means “and others”

Then we could overlay the seven virtues on the days of the week. The seven virtues are antidotes to the seven deadly sins (faults). The seven deadly sins are harmful to spiritual purity and actions (the wages of sin(faults/ not following the spiritual methods) is (spiritual) death”.

Fault (sin)                                                                                                            Virtue (Spiritual Methods)

Lust (excessive sexual/material appetites and addictions)                                  Chastity (purity)
Gluttony (over-indulgence)                                                                                 Temperance (self-restraint)
Greed (avarice)                                                                                                    Charity (gifting/Love in action)
Sloth (laziness/idleness/inaction)                                                                          Diligence (zeal/integrity/Labor)
Wrath (anger)                                                                                                        Forgiveness (composure)
Envy (jealousy)                                                                                                      Kindness (admiration)
Pride (vanity)                                                                                                         Humility (detachment)

Perhaps we could put numbers on these virtues as well to (roughly) signify their importance and day of the week.

1) Humility (primary detachment/gifting/Love in action)

2) Charity (secondaty detachment/gifting/Love in action)

3) Chastity (purity)

4) Temperance (self-restraint)

5) Forgiveness (composure/return to Love for ourselves)

6) Diligence (zeal/integrity/Labour)

7) Kindness (admiration)

That would be a rough order of things, although I think numbers one and two are pretty much set in place as they are the order of obeying the 11th commandment – which we should always do first and in that order.

Now I’m not suggesting that we should necessarily implement these days, but what I am suggesting is, that as spiritual people, we should type them out and put them up on the wall as a reminder to ourselves of the basics of spiritual life.

And that is why I wrote this blog – to bring our attentions to the Basics of spiritual life. Those who have been following me know I am keen on the BOB system (Be Brilliant On the Basics). Know I prefer the word basics to fundamental, because most fundamentalists are no fun to be with and are predominantly mental! Lol! Most fundamentalists don’t laugh freely which is a reflection of their lack of spirituality within. Spiritual people are urged to laugh a minimum of three hours per day Laughter is a spiritual tithing of your time to yourself! And an external reflection of your internal detachment from all except Love and Happiness. How can one Love and not BE happy! Never believe an unsmiling, non-laughing spiritual adviser – they are trying to take you down the road to hell with them!(hell is only spiritual separation from Love and laughter!)

I hope that this blog has given you some food for thought today.
