Rest does not come with sleeping, it comes with waking. When we are spiritually awake, we realize that real rest is possible only when we become free of illusion and no longer struggle against life. Illusion is the idea that people should be, and do, what we want them to. The truth is, that all is as it should be, despite appearances. This awareness helps me be easy on myself, easy with others and easy with the world around me. It is much more influential than force. Today let me give up forcing, end the struggling and…rest!
