Taking time off no matter how important your work is, is refreshing and clears the mind. Even those who “go to where the work is great and difficult,” need time to relax! And to discover that others are doing similar work, and enjoying it.
The poet, Hafiz, says “Everything in existence does point to God.” Why can’t I remember that?!
Can you remember that?
When was the last time you took time off from your “important” work?
