I've been idly going through some of the old files on my laptop; the compromise for extreme lightness and portability and rapid switch-on has been no CD/DVD drive and reduced disk space, so every so often it is time to hit that delete button.
I found a file called "Prayer Chart" - that looked useful.
And so it was - NOT!
It was blank.
I wonder what it had been created for?
I don't do schedules, timetables, routines, daily notes etc. very well. It took me eighteen months to follow a "read the Bible in one year" programme, and I think that's when I learnt the useless skill of reading in my sleep.
Maybe this "prayer chart" was an attempt to bring some kind of discipline, and "proper spirituality", into my "prayer-life". If so it clearly failed!
Whoa! Do you mean to say that one has all kinds of different lives?
I thought we had just the one life on this earth - now it looks as though we live in a multi-dimensional set of parallel worlds!
Let's start again.
I reckon we have just the ONE life, to be lived, like Tertullian's little fish, swimming in the sea of the Spirit, the Water of Life.
("But we little fish, like our Fish Jesus Christ,2 are born in water, and it is only by remaining in water that we are safe." end of para 1 here http://www.tertullian.org/articles/souter_orat_bapt/souter_orat_bapt_04baptism.htm )

Long, but grinds exceeding small!
