Real rest can be had during meditation when the mind rests in the Atman. Change of work can give rest. Remaining idle without work and allowing the mind to wonder wildly like a furious elephant, or building castles in the air, cannot bring rest to the mind and soul.
The man who cannot fix his mind in meditation and prayer cannot have knowledge of the Self. The unsteady man cannot practice meditation, He can¬not have intense devotion to knowledge of the Self, or any burning longing for liberation. He who does not practice prayer, Japa and meditation cannot have peace of mind. How can there be real lasting happiness for those who are unpeaceful?
From "Daily Sayings" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More Informations on Swami Sivananda: on the Website of Divine Life Society, Photographs of Swami Sivananda, German Pages on Swami Sivananda
