Dont just sit there, LIE DOWN!

Since the article doesnt mention time spent in a lying position, i am going to go ahead and assume it healthful. No more sitting down for me :)

Im really excited about my new health regime, I can do this! :rofl:
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

Go for it!

Just as the thought would occur to a man walking quickly, 'Why am I walking quickly? Why don't I walk slowly?' So he walks slowly. The thought occurs to him, 'Why am I walking slowly? Why don't I stand?' So he stands. The thought occurs to him, 'Why am I standing? Why don't I sit down?' So he sits down. The thought occurs to him, 'Why am I sitting? Why don't I lie down?' So he lies down.

If there wasn't something like sloth and torpor, this would be the perfect workplace.
Unfortunately, the lying position is an invitation for sloth and torpor.
