Fear of basic space

In constant work to fill all spaces, or in constant busyness with work, one is seeking to fill time with work out of fear of basic space. This need of work and constant speed is a neurotic process. The opposite reaction, refusing and resisting work is a refusal to associate with the practical matters of life, and is fundamentally a blind negativistic approach to work.

--Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, The Heart of the Buddha
