Three kinds of laziness - recognize yourself
Buddha described three kinds of laziness:
First- the laziness we all know about. When we have no desire to do anything, when we allow ourselves to stay in bed a little longer, instead of getting up and practicing.
Second- this is laziness of the wrong feeling of oneself - laziness of thinking. “I can’t do anything. Other people meditate, others practice, they can be conscious and kind, generous, but not me, because I’m too stupid.”
Or vice versa: "I am a very angry person," "I will never do anything in life," "I can’t do anything, I don’t even try." This is laziness.
The third kind of laziness- the constant employment of worldly affairs. We always have the opportunity to fill the vacuum of our time while maintaining our employment.
Moreover, all these activities can generally be considered a virtue. But, usually, this is just a way to avoid meeting with yourself.
