When the body is fatigued after exercise, it loses its fine coordination: a tired hand drops a glass, overused legs trip as they try to walk. The physical machine is no longer capable of grace and precision. In the same way, the soul that is weighed down by stress, worn down by the pressure of activity and worry, is incapable of maintaining the peaceful joy of Pure Consciousness. It becomes clumsy in the world, creates tension and problems, and knows that it is not where it ought to Be. The solution is to meditate.
