Passing Remarks

"'The new guys I get off the farm nowadays, you just can't convince some of them machinery can't be treated like a horse.'"
-SM Stirling, The Sunrise Lands (New York, 2008), Chapter Nineteen, p. 468.

For this same problem with a Roman from Caesar's time, see here.

Father Ignatius thinks that things and time belong to God; waste and sloth are theft from Him. (p. 469) This is the karma yoga attitude. See here.

I am in some haste now but these issues can be discussed later.

Kaor, Paul!

The kind of views expressed by Fr. Ignatius did not originate with him, of course. Or with practitioners of yoga. I remember how an exasperated St. Paul exhorted some early Christians who were freeloading off the kindness of other Christians, to either work or stop eating. And the Apostle made a point of declaring that wherever he went, he worked at his trade of tent making as much as he did in proclaiming the Gospel, so he would not become a burden on others.
