"What I have come to call an "active laziness"?
Naturally, there are different species of laziness: Eastern and Western.
The Eastern style consists of hanging out all day in the sun, doing nothing, avoiding any kind of work or useful activity, drinking cups of tea and gossiping with friends.
Western laziness is quite different. It consists of cramming our lives with compulsive activity so that there is no time to confront the real issues" - Sogyal Rinpoche
