Be Where Your Feet Are Planted

When I was in the Sinai a few months ago (sigh), there were times that my mind would race to the future, to where I am today, even though my body was in Egypt. The mantra I had to use to call myself to be present in the moment where I was at the time and place was "Be where your feet are planted."

Reading Richard Rohr's Radical Grace, he also gives me these good words to help out in the middle of a day of hassle and headache: "This moment is as perfect as it can be."

Both are excellent to chant on a pilgrimage of life.
