Rest and Consistency

I have been having an internal debate with myself about the need for rest and, after having taken a day off, I feel that it might have been better spent dedicated to different activities rather than having completely abandoned my practice.

And, it seems to me now, that whether we’re talking about developing the mind or the body, consistent and unrelenting practice is what’s called for. In pursuing these goals tirelessly a certain amount of creativity and improvisational skill will be required as the mind and body both become overworked and fatigued through the use of the same exercises or subjects of reflection. So, rather than lapsing into inactivity or reverie I simply need to change focus.
