I first became aware of this "saying ", while studying for a college exam. Not knowing it 's origin. I interperted this as while I was wasting time, my energy and my creative ability were being ignored. Where life is passing by quickly, being spend in a useless manner. Where I 'm wasting my time on things that are not important and of no value. Here I am now, decades later looking up the meaning, and finding I was completely wrong in my interpertation.

For us to meditate on our thoughts. To let them build inside us so we can come to our Lord and let our request be known.g
