My work is myself…St Augustine

I have been enjoying my book ‘Day by Day with Augustine’.  The following entry from  his journals written between 397 and 398 is my experience.

O Lord, I am working hard in this field, and the field of my labours is my own self. I have become a problem to myself, like land which a farmer works only with difficulty and at the cost of much sweat. For I am not now investigating the tracts of the heavens, or measuring the distance of the stars, or trying to discover how the earth hangs in space. I am investigating myself, my memory, my mind. (X:16 The Confessions)
