"...let us turn the back of our minds on this corruption of temporal life, let us turn the faces of our hearts to the freedom of the Heavenly Kingdom. But behold, there are still many things that oppress us from the care of corruptible life. Therefore because we cannot depart perfectly, at least let us stand in the door of our cave, ready to leave at any time propitiously through the grace of Our Savior Who lives and reigns with the Father in the Unity of the Holy Spirit, God, unto all ages of ages. Amen."
Pray and meditate as we might, we are still "in the flesh" and the cares of this life will occupy even the most "spiritual" among us. That's just how it is. So we "stand at the door of our cave," not totally out of it's gloom but available to God's call toward the light.
That I can do.
