Killing Time & Injuring Eternity

I have some time on my hands and keep thinking of the quote:

"As if you could kill time without injuring eternity. The masses of men lead their lives of quiet desperation . . .  “

Henry David Thoreau
Walden Pond “Economy

Can one “kill time without injuring eternity?” Is using idle time to reflect, think, read and write “killing time” and injuring eternity?

I guess a scale of measure would be priorities a reasonable person would set. There have been times when my high priority was to get home in time to watch the Simpson’s at 7:30 p.m. Ahhh I hear it calling me now, “ thaaaw simmmpsonss ♪♫♫♪”- ahh cartoon bliss. Coming soon: “My priorities this year.”
