How often do we find ourselves saying, "I need to rest," only to override that need with more doing, thinking or going?


What I've learned is that true rest is more than taking a quiet bath or reading a novel once a month. It's the experience of deep inner stillness. It's resting body, mind and spirit. Especially mind. Rest is not a luxury, it is an essential need.
