Which sutta talks about the reasons for meditating vs. reasons for not meditating?

I remember reading a sutta where it listed reasons why a heedless person wouldn’t meditated, but a heedful person would.

For example, a monk is sick he thinks, "I am sick. I will wait to meditate until I am well. While a more diligent monk thinks, “I am sick, I may get sicker or not recover. I should meditate now”.

There were a few other examples, but they followed that same structure.


@jared Perhaps AN 8.80 is the discourse that you’re looking for?


That’s the one!
