Spiritual Stocktaking

Lent is a good moment for a spiritual stocktaking; a pause, a retreat from life’s busy surface to its solemn deeps. There we can consider our possessions; and discriminate between the necessary stores which have been issued to us, and must be treasured and kept in good order, and the odds and ends which we have accumulated for ourselves…. There are few who cannot benefit by a bit-by-bit examination of that equipment, a humble return to first principles; for there we find the map and road-book of that spiritual world which is our true environment.

  2. Lent is a good time to remember those things in the past that we did when we were separate from God and ask for forgiveness, it is also a good time to reflect on what we are doing now that keeps us separate like too much time on the Internet or an inability to love. God is live si anytime we have a thought or action separate from God we have to ask for help and forgiveness, I have si many problems letting go of past mistakes then remember that is ego talking..not god..God lives in the present moment ,
