A Selection from Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations | by L.M. Browning
The divine is in the present and you must be present to experience it. When you vacate the present and recede into your mind, allowing worries or work to remove you from the moment, you leave the plain upon which the sacred dwells.
When you are constantly under the anesthetic of digital distraction, you withdraw; you are no longer conscious and therefore are in no state to commune with the divine.
If you wish to hear the answers you seek, you must be present to hear them. If you wish to partake in the insights there to be known, you must be present to receive them. If you wish to know the divine, you must be present to meet it.
…you must be present.
