The Present

Posted on 2009-07-05. Filed under: Quotes, Thoughts |

“The Present is the point at which Time touches Eternity. Of the present moment, and of it only, humans have an experience analogous to the experience which [God] has of reality as a whole; in it alone, freedom and actuality are offered them. He would therefore have them continually concerned either with Eternity (which means being concerned with Him) or with the Present—either meditating on their eternal union with, or separation from, Himself; or else obeying the present voice of conscience, bearing the present cross, receiving the present grace, giving thanks for the present pleasure.”
– C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

I need to focus on the Present today whilst keeping Eternity in mind. I refuse to be paralyzed. The time to act is now. The time to meditate is eternal. And right now, those times are one and the same.
