Is procrastination wise?
In an excellent article called "Thief of Time", we read the following:
“Those who have had the good karma of being favorably situated to study Theosophy are especially unwise, from the standpoint of their own interest, if they procrastinate. If they do so, they let sleep the opportunity which they must have earned, in this life or in previous ones, and who knows whether they may not be thereby postponing the recurrence of such a chance for spiritual growth and service?
Such postponement may not only retard their own progress but also that of the Cause of Theosophy and of those whom their example of faithful study and practice of the theosophical teachings might have led to emulate it.”
“Corresponding, however, to the opportunity offered to the modern student is the latter's responsibility to the Cause of Theosophy and to his fellow men. The trusteeship of wealth applies no less to treasures of the mind and the spirit than to physical possessions.
It is true that a great Master once wrote:
"Knowledge for the mind, like food for the body, is intended to feed and help to growth, but it requires to be well digested and the more thoroughly and slowly the process is carried out the better both for body and mind”.”
