Life takes work

Laziness is a choice, like most things in life. It’s choosing the easier way out, the path of least consciousness. But while laziness is easy to notice when we don’t want to do physical work, it’s actually everywhere in our lives — in the pivotal choices we make about our emotions, our reactions and where we focus our attention. …

Laziness lulls us into a life we don’t like, even though we let it happen because we thought it would be easier. Unconsciously, we chose boredom and routine over life itself.

Life takes work. Awareness takes work. So does perseverance.

— Margaret Wheatley, Perseverance, p. 79

our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.

— from “To my fellow swimmers”, from the elders of the Hopi nation, Oraibi, Arizona
