Today’s Wisdom- work and idleness

The person who does nothing has many assistants.

When the devil went fishing to catch people he put many different kinds of bait on his hook. However, a lazy person needs no bait. He just swallows a bare hook. The mind of a lazy person is the devils playground.

One of the biggest misunderstandings we can have is the belief that a person is happy when he is doing nothing- a misconception affirmed in the belief that heaven is the sort of place where people will do nothing.

If a person’s daily life is a monotonous routine, he cannot think about his inner spiritual life. Try to find the spare time to be observant and reflect on your life with solitude.

-Leo Tolstoy-
