How Lazy Can You Go?
January 13 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
How many of us have the genuine wish to progress on the spiritual path but get swept away by our daily activities and never make it near the meditation cushion or the contemplative reading?
What we might call “too busy” is indeed a form of procrastination – the laziness of activity.
Some Tibetan masters like to compare Eastern and Western different styles of laziness.
In the East, they jokingly say, laziness consists of hanging out all day, chatting hours on end while sipping tea and getting nothing done.
Our Western laziness is different. It is filling our time with an incredible program from morning to evening. Between work and working out, responsibilities and distractions. Where is the room to face our minds? It is gone in a cloud of activities but leaves us spiritually empty.
No matter which type of laziness we practice, the problem is that our minds get dull, and it gets really difficult to reflect clearly the important issues in our lives.
Laziness is avoidance to face those issues and live a spiritually fulfilled life.
