Gurudev, if my soul is thirsty for love, peace and contentment, then why do I find excuses not to do my sadhana?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Yes, I would suggest that you reflect upon this question yourself. Then you will realize that you are making excuses to take your medicine (here indicating sadhana) which are for your own good.
This is like going to the doctor to get medicines, but going off to sleep and keeping them under your pillow instead of actually taking them.
Why do we make excuses or skip doing something that brings us so much peace and contentment? I also have this question for you.
