Laziness and Procrastination

November 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How many of us have a sincere desire to progress on the spiritual path but get carried away by their daily activities and never approach the meditation cushion or contemplative reading?

What we might call “too busy” is indeed a form of procrastination – active laziness.

Some Tibetan masters like to compare different styles of sloth. In the East, they say jokingly, laziness consists of hanging out all day, chatting for hours while sipping tea and doing nothing.

Our western laziness is different. It fills our time with an amazing program from morning till night. Between work and exercise, responsibilities and distractions where is the space where we can meet our mind? It is lost in a cloud of activities that leave us spiritually empty.

No matter how lazy we are, the problem is that our minds get bored and it becomes really difficult to look clearly at the important issues in our lives.

Laziness is avoiding facing these problems and living a spiritually fulfilled life.
