Chose Life!

We live, I think, too much in the present. There is little hope for we who dwell here and now but not elsewhere.
Our treasure, so to speak, is in the moment.

We forget to dwell on the past. That is to say, we forget that here and now are based on then and there; they are the present's foundations.

We each need to take time and use it to reflect upon itself, for, in reflecting itself, it gives us a chance to look at the future. Now is the foundations for hereafter.

Do not think that I speak in terms of great, lengthy periods of time. I speak, primarily, of weeks, days, hours and minutes.

We may dwell here and now, but we don't dwell in here and now. If we did, we'd be able to remember, with clarity, what we did a minute, an hour, and, even. a day ago.

But I can't.

I sit here and write, and my writing seems full of hypocricy.

Dwelling on the past, in the now, for the future must, I repeat, MUST be my aim if I am to Christian in more that name.

This was written yesterday in my diary while sitting in front of the Tabernacle in the Chapel of the Cathoic Pastoral Centre.
The Title of this post is based on a reflection given to me by my Spiritual Director that is based on Deuteronomy 30:15-20.

Miss Kelly!
Two spelling mistakes I feel the need to draw to your attention : 1) change hypocracy to hypocrisy ( second last sentence)
2) and dweeling to dwelling (last sentence)
