“There’s a story that comes from the tradition of the Desert Fathers, an order of Christian monks who lived in the waste-lands of Egypt about seventeen hundred years ago.  In the tale, a couple of monks named Theodore and Lucius shared the acute desire to go out and see the world.  Since they’d made vows of contemplation, however, this was not something they were allowed to do.  So, to satiate their wanderlust, Theodore and Lucius learned to “mock their temptations” by relegating their travels to the future.  When the summertime came, they said to each other, ‘We will leave in the winter.’  When the winter came, they said, ‘We will leave in the summer.’  They went on like this for over fifty years, never once leaving the monastery or breaking their vows.

Question: What is something that you have been procrastinating in life?

Most of us, of course have never taken such vows – but we choose to live like monks anyway, rooting ourselves to a home or a career and using the future as a kind of phony ritual that justifies the present.  In this way, we end up spending (as Thoreau put it) ‘the best part of one’s life earning money in order to enjoy a questionable liberty during the least valuable part of it.’” – Rolf Potts, Vagabonding
