Signs Of Omission
I remember hearing about "sins of omission." This is good stuff that we could have done but did not do. I think that the mode of living in which sins of omission occur is isolation. In solitude we simply step away from the active world to connect with ourselves/God in healthy and invigorating ways, to prepare for positive action. Isolation is when we put up walls, are out of touch with a spiritual side, and are too self-imploded to be of much use to anyone else. There are many days or moments when I have to ask myself, "Am I in isolation or solitude?" Isolation has no prayer to it. Isolation is somewhat indifferent to the world around me. Sometimes I fool even me by saying, "I am too busy, or too overworked." I find that when I have sufficient solitude, being too busy never seems to come up. By stepping away from saving all humanity, fixing everything, I enter into quiet prayer that seems to refresh and energize me when I am done. If I am not sure about which mode I might be in, I go to a meeting of friends where I might be of use. Works every time.
