In the Now

“We mostly spend our lives conjugating three verbs: to Want, to Have, and to Do…forgetting that none of these verbs have any ultimate significance, except so far as they are trancended by and included in the fundamental verb, to Be.”

From Evelyn Underhill, the English writer and mystic of the early 20th century, known for her profound works on the spiritual life.

Another excerpt from the weekly email from the pastor at St. John’s Church in Maadi.

I always have so many things I need/want to do when I just really need to remember to be.
