Time Touches Eternity

More thoughts on living in the present, this time from C. S. Lewis, in chapter 15 of The Screwtape Letters:
The humans live in time but our Enemy [God] destines them to eternity. He therefore, I believe, wants them to attend chiefly to two things, to eternity itself, and to that point of time which they call the Present. For the Present is the point at which time touches eternity. Of the present moment, and of it only, humans have an experience anlogous to the experience which our Enemy has of reality as a whole; in it alone freedom and actuality are offered them.
