IT IS NEVER TOO SOON IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM

There was once a miser who lived in a leaky house; the rainwater poured into the house through the roof but he sat through it all. Neighbors laughed at him and warned him to get the roof repaired. But in the rainy season he replied. "Let the rains subside, how can I repair it now?" And when the rains stopped, he replied. "Why should I worry about leaks, now the rains have stopped?" Do not suffer the leaks when the rains come, as they are sure to do; repair the roof now itself. That is to say, acquaint yourselves with the spiritual primers and textbooks now itself; begin the first lesson of silence prayer, and chanting the Name of the Lord. It is never too soon in the spiritual realm.
