Don't idle..Keep moving Bro/Sis

As Albert Einstein wrote: "It seems as though we must use sometimes the one theory and sometimes the other, while at times we may use either. We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do".

Duality with Non-Duality when put together explains the Phenomenon "Source of Life"

In simple religious terms if you are worshiping a deity then there is a duality. The difference here is the distance between you and the deity. When you start walking towards deity, distance reduces and Vision of Idol increases.

Non-Duality states when the distance gets reduced, both looks same and eventually becomes one Person.(Now Instead of the Idol with its usual looks, imagine the Deity with an Image of yours if you don't understand the statement). Other way of looking at this is; they are not in dual places and dual items having dual distances. They are just non-dual now.

There are only two ways to get there (being Non-dual). 
First one is walk towards it, so you get there. 
Other way is to stand Still to see the Image come to you.

While the later one is done by great Yogis and Siddha, rest of the human race are walking the great distance as mentioned by the first one.

The 2nd one(Later one) is the most powerful Inner Walk (A journey that could only be understood by the Great and Noble Souls). A Route that's Rough and a Journey that's Tough. Externally the still looks can be misleading, however internally the Speed it moves is hard for others to Comprehend.

அவன் சிவனே னு கிடக்கிறான்
சதா இதே சிந்தையா இருக்கான் பார்
சோம (சும்மா இருக்கான் பார்)
இதே கதியாய் இருக்கான் பார்

Hence this Journey is Mis-understood by Commoners as Staying Idle. This is considered as Laziness as the external appearance and actions could be Mis-leading. Stillness is a powerful progression towards non-duality or in a state where there is no duality.

Let me state the difference between Idling and Staying Still. Staying Still takes humongous practices and skills. In a forest and nerve chilling Himalaya a day would be OK for an Idling person.After that the chillness, loneliness and silence and can make them mad in a month. Understand this is not easy.  A person who has practiced to be still can be there for Weeks/Months and Years in place that is dead silent.

For people who can't take the rough journey like Siddhas, will still have to take baby steps and progress further. The steps may be  Bhakthi, Bhajan, Social Service, Ashram Visits and or atleast doing their Jobs properly (Karma Routines). If they don't take small steps in forward direction that is when we call the mind to be "Idling". Now I think it will be easy to identify the difference between Idling and staying still. Unlike stillness the idle mind will make you move backwards in the opposite direction. The mind thus has to be constantly engaged with a target/idol/image/Destiny or a Goal in order to keep one walking forward. It is a huge sea to swim but the only choice is to move forward whether it is slow or fast.

In order to walk/swim the support of supreme will be required as mentioned by Thiruvalluvar below.

பிறவிப் பெருங் கடல் நீந்துவர் நீந்தார் 
இறைவன் அடி சேராதார் 

None can swim the great sea of births but those
who are united to the feet of God.

Keep moving ...Don't Idle.
