Verse 7.139.16

स्वं प्राणमनसी साम्यात्कुर्वती कर्म तिष्ठतः ।
वैषम्याद्विषमं चैकं शान्ते शान्ता सुषुप्तता ॥ १६ ॥

svaṃ prāṇamanasī sāmyātkurvatī karma tiṣṭhataḥ |
vaiṣamyādviṣamaṃ caikaṃ śānte śāntā suṣuptatā || 16 ||

The co-equal course of both, serves to the regular conduct of the functions of life (as in the waking state); but their unequal course, produces dissimilar effects (as that of dreaming when the mind alone is active; and the inactivity of both causes the inertness of the body and soul.
