paramahansa yogananda - ordinary life is like a pendulum

Ordinary life is like a pendulum, ceaselessly swinging back and forth. The peaceful person remains calm until he is ready to work; then he swings into action. As soon as he is through, he swings back to the center of calmness. You should always be calm, like the pendulum that is still, but ready to swing into steady action whenever necessary.
