The time you waste in logic, reason, argument, fantasies, all that-that’s a waste of happiness. 

-© The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, July 20, 1996

You can never reason your way into happiness.  Vijnanamayakosha, the sheath of discernment that allows us to eventually touch bliss, is fed by baffling the mind.  Doing something seemingly pointless, just because it’s beautiful.
