When I say “transported” I don’t mean that I have an out of body experience where I’m flying above cloud 9. It’s more like a momentary vacation from cares and bothersome logismoi that distract me. Remembering God’s eternal kingdom posits (Kierkegaard’s word) eternity in the midst of temporal affairs and makes them seem less overwhelming.
On a different note in the next section on the nothing of anxiety inducing paganistic fatalism, (take a breath) “Fate […] is the unity of necessity and the accidental.” (p. 96) I find that freeing.
