“There are different species of laziness: Eastern and Western. The Eastern style is like the one practised in India. It consists of hanging out all day in the sun, doing nothing, avoiding any kind of work or useful activity, drinking cups of tea, listening to Hindi film music blaring on the radio, and gossiping with friends. Western laziness is quite different. It consists of cramming our lives with compulsive activity, so there is no time at all to confront the real issues. This form of laziness lies in our failure to choose worthwhile applications for our energy.”
This made me think about how we all spend our down time and what is the most conscious choice? Or what is the most supportive choice we can make for ourselves? I for one am guilty of being lazy by doing too much. I consciously have to stop myself and ask what’s really going on? How are you feeling? 🙂 Why are you cleaning, yet again. And trust me one can clean too much. I had a friend when I lived in England who when she called and heard I was cleaning would ask me what was wrong. So I’m wondering if this shows up for you and if so what may be going on that you are not hearing.
It’s just a thought….
