REST is deliberate. There are many forms of rest, but for the sake of clarity, this discipline is not totally about sleep. The kind of rest that will bring stability and discipline to your soul is the deliberate stepping back from responsibilities and stresses in your life. If that takes sleep sometimes, that is fine. But there are other ways to rest. And we are more balanced, if we can learn to master many of them in our lives. It's not called a "discipline" for nothing.
Being present in the moment.
Enjoying the gift of music or nature.
Learning to embrace the healing touch of silence
Giving your soul a reprieve from the world.
Resetting the mind, the soul and the body.
