i actually wanted to put this with Lesson 15 about 'Good and Bad Habits' But it seemed to glare at me while reading this lesson.

'Those who meditate little, and vaguely feel they may some day contact God, find that their desire to do so vanishes when they are invaded by the pwerful habit of restlessness.'

'A man who is always restless, and never meditative, thinks that he is all right because he has become accustomed to being a slave of restlessness. However, as soon as he tries to meditate and be calm, he finds resistance from the bad habit of mental fickleness. But after he has formed the habit of meditation, he learns that when the habit  of restlessness tries to usurp the throne of his consciousness, it finds new meditation-guard and the awakened occult soldiers of past lives offering resistance.

Sometimes it helps to know what we are experiencing and why. This lesson was meant for many of us. Paramahansa Yogananda has many good recomendations for restlessness including right company, the food we eat, the places we inhabit and our attitudes.
