We need a spiritual path and we need to be able to bring it to life and not just admire it from a distance… or, keep postponing things…. it’s going to be so great when I’m 20 and I can just meditate all the time. Or, once the kids are out of the house, I will be so free. Whatever it is we might do… It’s just procrastination.
