Question: What is one of the biggest changes that one goes through in terms of how one sees, or experiences life, as a resurrected being?
Answer: Time is experienced differently than ever before. It seems to have collapsed into the single moment. The past seems like an hour ago and the future is foreshortened. It’s quite disconcerting.
Normally the way ahead is illuminated by one’s plans , even if it’s just for the day. One plans to wash their hair, come home from work, or visit a friend. But suddenly, the future is just not there. The mind cannot grasp more than a few minutes at a time. You’re like a little rudderless ship afloat on the ocean of time.
Question: If we are “like a rudderless little ship” during the stages of resurrection, how do we adjust and flourish in these new ways of being?
Almine’s Answer: Innocently, like a child. We don’t try and go to the future, we let the future come to us. We trust that the moment well lived produces a future worth having.
