Why it’s important to balance work and rest?
Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor
The man must work, he needs to work to eat and live, but he should not be a slave of work.
It’s fair and so fair that the workers of muscle and brain enjoy two days to take a rest every week.
We need to work to live, that’s obvious, but we need to live, that’s why we work; it’s fair for the workers to have two days to rest each week.
Working and living it’s a question of common sense, as someone said: “It’s the most common of the senses”.
Nothing amazes people so much as the common sense and the simple language.
The common sense is the measure of what’s possible; it’s made of experience and prevision.
Working is a duty but to take a rest is another duty, Not defining the workweek is a hundred percent absurd.
Many workers are slaves of work in a total form; they don’t even enjoy resting Saturdays and Sundays. Employers pay these wretched wages of hunger and they never recognize their extra hours and the holydays.
