"Calming allows us to rest, and resting is a precondition for healing. When animals in the forest  get wounded, they find a place to lie down, and they rest completely for many days. They don't think about food or anything else. They just rest, and they get the healing they need. When we humans get sick, we just worry! We look for doctors and medicine, but we don't stop. Even when we go to the beach or the moutains for a vacation, we don't rest, and we come back more tired than before. We have to learn to rest."

Thich Nhat Hanh, "The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching"
