Fatigue is a symptom of self centeredness – Swami Kriyananda

Ours is not a focused age. Countless influences pull us in conflicting directions. We find ourselves trying to do a hundred things hastily, rather than one thing at a time carefully and well.

We measure achievement by numbers rather than by excellence. As a result is the exhaustion one finds written on the faces of so many in our bustling cities.

The person who can simplify his life and marshal his energies to do a few things well, instead of scattering this forces restlessly, will find that he has more than enough strength for whatever he has to do.

Fatigue is a symptom of self centeredness. One who can forget himself in helping others and in giving strength to them will find himself rarely exhausted.
