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:
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one 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.
