The future comes to us

31 01 2008

Bizarrely, this crazy Japanese human tetris game reminds about what Orthodox Archbiship Anthony Bloom writes about time:

“There is absolutely no need to run after time to catch it. It does not run away from us, it runs towards us. Whether you are intent on the next minute coming your way, or whether you are completely unaware of it, it will come your way. The future, whatever you do about it, will become the present, and so there is no need to try to jump out of the present into the future.”

 We are standing still and time comes toward us. Bloom tells us to stop and embrace the NOW and appreciate our present situation – this very second of time. This, he tells us, is where we will encounter God, and where we will be most able to meet with others.
