(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 26 January 2010, Cape Town, South Africa, Srimad Bhagavatam 7.3.33)
In spite of all our transcendental knowledge still, we are running out of time. Everyone gets caught like that. We are running out of time. A lot of time is spent in preparation for better times to come but for how long are we preparing!?
Then one day, from the preparation stage, we just go straight into the “run-out-of-time” stage. This is actually how things move along. Therefore one must be quite resolute in Krsna consciousness and say, “I’ll do it NOW! I’ll do something NOW! I’ll get serious NOW! I will not postpone it.”
This stage of devotion is nista (steadiness) and this is the beginning; the stage where spiritual life begins to enter into the realm of taste, a higher taste!
