Question: How can I tell if I am making the best use of time?Sri Chinmoy: You can tell if you are making the best use of time if you feel that each second is leading you to the highest Reality. If you feel that each second is a tiny drop falling into the eternal ocean, only then can you take the finite time into infinite Time. If you do not separate one second from an hour or one drop from the ocean, then you will not be able to think of good or bad use of time.
