Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you always! You and I surely cannot live during this month of December without being daily aware of the approaching feast of Christmas. How all of us eagerly look forward to sharing with our loved ones God's outburst of love in his giving to us his only begotten Son. We long to be present to them in love. We plan for weeks what gifts to give them as a symbol of our desire to be a loving, self-giving presence to them throughout our whole life. Some think that Christmas is for children. Yes, it truly is appreciated only by those who are converted and become like little children, open enough to believe the incredible news that God so loved us as to give us his Son so we can share even now in his eternal trinitarian life (Jn 3:16). At this sacred time I and the members of our family, Contemplative Ministries, go out to all of you faithful...

INNER-MINDFULNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

INNER-MINDFULNESS The Rev. Robert Schuller, Pastor of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, CA, once had a private interview with Mother Teresa. He asked her only one question: "Mother Teresa, with so many persons living on planet earth, why are there not more saints?" She simply replied with one word: "Distractions!" We cannot receive salvation from Christ and his Spirit unless we discipline ourelves by an inner attention over the elements within us that tend to hold us in a state of bondage and disintegration. We need, by God's grace, to enter into that critical awareness which the Father and Mothers of the desert in the 4th century called, nepsis. This means in Greek a "sober vigilance," an inner attentiveness to the Trinity's indwelling within us and around us in each moment of our existence. It is a "passionate indifference," to quote Teilhard de Chardin. No human being has ever succeeded in any endeavor, especially to attain any union with God, the Supreme Being, without foll...

LOVE GOD WITH ONE’S WHOLE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

LOVE GOD WITH ONE’S WHOLE HEART Jesus taught us what is the end of our Christian life. Yahweh had commanded his chosen people in the desert to love him with their whole heart and with all their strength (Dt 6: 5). Jesus taught us that our greatest accomplishment or goal in human existence is to love God perfectly in every thought, word, and deed and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves (Mt 22: 37-40). Yet, how often we fall short of fulfilling these two commands in our scatteredness of mind by our lack of attention to God's loving presence and his Word which asks us always to live in love toward others. What difficulties we encounter when we strive to place God as the supreme Center of all our inner motivations and values! Jesus taught us the necessity of inner vigilance and attentiveness. "Therefore, you too must stand ready because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect" (Mt 24: 44). We are to be vigilant like the five wise virgins who were found waiting when t...

INNER DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

INNER DISCIPLINE Jesus himself went against his own will to embrace death out of love for the Father's will (Lk 22: 42). Moreover he preached the necessity of giving up a lower level of existence in order that new and more enriching life might come forth from such a death (Mt 10: 39; Jn 12: 24-25). St. Paul exhorts Christians to bring every thought, as captured prisoner, into obedience to Jesus Christ (2 Cor 10: 5-6). Yet, how many thoughts within each hour cross our minds without our referring them to the dominion of Christ our Lord? Paul understood this phenomenon as the principle of the "unspiritual self, warring against the spiritual self, and he found himself in this, so often doing what he knew he should not do (Rm 7: 14-25).

SELF-POSSESSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

SELF-POSSESSION Lanza del Vasto, one of Gandhi's disciples, explains how important inner attentiveness is if we are to remember God and seek to return his love by giving ourselves as a gift to others. He writes: "Selfpossession must precede self-giving, for one cannot give what one does not have" ( Make Straight the Way of the Lord, p.B). Such selfpossession requires great spiritual effort. It demands that we attend to ourselves and be centered in self-surrendering love to God who abides within us. Thomas Merton writes in a similar vein: If I love God with my heart, I have got to have a heart, and and I have got to have it in my possession to give. One of the most difficult things in life today is to gain possession of one's heart in order to be able to give it. We have been deprived of these things and the first step in the spiritual life is to get back what we have to give and to be ourselves. (Life and Solitude) St. Basil used the phrase which in Latin was "Attende tibi. " For Ba...

PRACTICAL AIDS TO HELP US FOCUS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

PRACTICAL AIDS TO HELP US FOCUS Lanza del Vasto gives us some practical aids to help us attain this necessary state of inner attention. The first exercise helps us rid ourselves of scattered consciousness and of our inability to focus on a single thing for very long. We tend to be too much in a hurry, trying to do too many things at the same time. Thus, his advice is invaluable to all of us living in these modern times. Try this in your Christmas preparations: The first exercise we recommend to you, busy friend, you who have so many important things to do and so little time, will not take you an hour, half an hour, or even a quarter of an hour, but three minutes....And perhaps three minutes is still too much, so let us divide them into six: six times a day, three times in the afternoon, be still. Stop! You are in a hurry? All the more reason for checking yourself. You have things to do? Stop, otherwise you will make mistakes. You have to look after other people? All the more reason ...

RESTING IN GOD'S WORD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

RESTING IN GOD'S WORD The language of love is silence. If we are to listen to God's Word, we must silence the noisiness within our hearts and around us in this teeming world of complexity that is oriented in its brokenness toward "sin and death," symbols of self-centeredness and a movement away from God-centeredness. Jesus speaks of the necessity for each of us to enter our "inner closet" when we wish to pray. There we are to pray in spirit and truth to the heavenly Father (Mt 6: 6). Scripture and the early Christian writers referred to this innermost self as our "heart." It is into our heart, the deepest reaches of our consciousness, that we enter in order to come face-to-face in silence with God. In utter open receptivity we wait without any preconceived ideas of what Jesus, the Word of the Father, will reveal to us from within us and from without, in the events of each moment.

ATTENTION TO GOD IN OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

ATTENTION TO GOD IN OTHERS As you learn to listen to God's Word in others, you unfold God's loving presence before them. You can see from your own experience what inner attentiveness and love are required to truly hear God in another human being. Those we meet communicate themselves to us through their words, actions and their very being. At first we listen on the body level to God's Word speaking to us through others. We seek to praise God for their positive exterior qualities and move beyond any negative traits with a faith, hope and love vision that will allow us to see deeper to the indwelling Word of God and to listen to whatever message of beauty and love the Word is speaking from within each individual. The greater our awareness of the presence of God inhabiting the deepest center of our own being, the greater will be our consciousness of the same divine, loving presence surrounding and penetrating all other things. Gone are the anxious, aggressive moods by which we dominate ...

ATTENTIVE PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

ATTENTIVE PRAYER God meets us and communicates himself to us more directly in our own personal prayer. The more we bring ourselves to God in attentive self-communication unto communion, the closer and more real he seems to us, and the more we can surrender to him. Distractions take us away from any intense intimacy with God by preventing us from being attentive in faith, hope and love. Only by returning to inner attention in prayer and in all you do for love of God can you fulfill St. Paul's exhortation: "Be happy at all times; pray constantly; and for all things give thank to God, because this is what God expects you to do in Christ Jesus" (1 Th 5:16-18).

CHRISTMAS IS EVERY DAY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1997

CHRISTMAS IS EVERY DAY For many of a more worldly mindset, Christmas is over on December 26th. Christmas for them is 364 days away. But for true Christians, who are moving into true contemplation of the key mysteries of their faith, the essence of Christmas is happening every day in any given moment when we are "mindful" of the indwelling Trinity living within us and working in every event and moment around us. Contemplation is the God-given gift through the Spirit's infusion of faith, hope and love that you might enter into the kairos, the moment of lsalvation of God's healing love for you. It is not only to remember the historical moment of what happened in a cave near Bethelem centuries ago as Mary gave birth to her Son, but it is also to experience the birth of Christ, of the God-Man, now happening in your place in history, through God's eternal now moment. Your goal in life is to convert every moment into a loving response as you continually experience in deepening consciousnes...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with you during this new year of 1998! The fading away of the old year and the blistery entrance of the new year during the month of Janury perenially bring also to us earthlings a desire to make resolutions to improve the tenor of our lives in retrospect over the way we have lived the past year. We all know about the New Year resolutions. We usually center upon doing positively this or that and avoiding doing so many other things that should not be a part of our lives. All too often we focus on things to do and on our own will power to accomplish them. The sad result is that the month of January is usually not finished before we have even forgotten what were our earlier resolutions. May I propose anew resolution? This centers upon the topic chosen as this month's teaching: CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM. For many of us this is something very my...

CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM I believe that for many Christians these two coming years before we enter into the year 2000 there will be a tremendous surge, especially among the young, toward mysticism. This is a thirst for religious experiences and the world of the "spirit." M.C. Richards, artisan and poet, in her book, The Crossing Point, expresses this inner hunger: One of the truths of our time is this hunger deep in people all over the planet for coming into relationship with each other. Human consciousness is crossing a threshold as mighty as the one from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. People are hungering and thirsting after experience that feels true to them on the inside, after so much hard work mapping the outer spaces of the physical world. They are gaining courage to ask for what they need: living inter-connections, a sense of individual worth, shared opportunities. Starved for an immediate experience in the deepest reaches of their consciousness, many Westerners are turning ...

DECLINE OF INNER EXPERIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

DECLINE OF INNER EXPERIENCE Today our specialists can predict our future or at least we place great trust in their predictions. Science has taken away from us the glow of any astonishment and excitement as we are left with an objective world that follows science's discovered laws. We are afraid to look and see the poetry of soft greens of spring or the wild, macabre dance of trees, intoxicated by an autumn rain storm because our scientists tell us it is a question only of light waves and high pressure points shooting through the nation. Such stress on the objective knowledge has lessen or completely obliterated any experience of the mystery of our inner life with its experience of God’s uncreative energies of graceful and healing love. The most fascinating, inner world lies within all of us where the Divine Trinity dwells in loving presence and yet most of us are scarcely aware, beyond an intellectual assent given to a truth revealed by God through his Church, of all this inner rich...

GOD IS LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

GOD IS LOVE If God is love by essence, then he is always seeking as a triune community to share the Divine Life with us by communicating himself through his Word in his Spirit of love. God creates the whole world as good, as a sign of his burning desire to give himself in faithful communication through his Word. The world at its interior and within each of us is filled with the self-communicating Trinity. God is filling the universe and ourselves with his loving self. His uncreated energies of love swirl through and fill all creatures with his loving, creative presence (Ps 33: 4-9). God delights to give himself through his Word in the power of the hidden Spirit of love (Pr 8: 29-31). Everything flows out of God's exuberant fullness of being and becomes a reality in his communicating Word. He speaks through his Word and oceans and mountains, birds and beasts, flowers and all living things spring into being under his laughing, joyful gaze. Nothing that exists can escape his loving tou...

WHAT IS MYSTICISM? [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

WHAT IS MYSTICISM? In all human beings there exists a propensity toward mysticism. We have within ourselves an inner drive toward union with the Supreme Reality. If we call that Reality God, we are saying that all other finite beings must ultimately fail to satisfy our thirst for deeper, more intense interpenetration with God. All of us have enjoyed perhaps moments of ecstatic human love, a gasp of awe at some breath-taking natural beauty, a lifting of ourselves out of our habitual mode of perceiving the real world around us and an entering into a world of seemingly greater simplification while listening to transcendent music. Still, no matter how common the experience of transcendent oneness is among us human beings, mysticism is one of the most misunderstood words in our vocabulary. Evelyn Underhill, a renown English authority on mysticism, describes it: Mysticism is the expression of the innate yearning of the human spirit towards total harmony with the transcendental order, what...

CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED TO MYSTICISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1998

CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED TO MYSTICISM By our Baptism we are all called to enter into a oneness in love with the three persons of the indwelling Trinity. In authentic Christian mystical experiences there are two important constitutive elements. The first is the transcendent, totally "Other" that we call God. Our Christian faith brings us to a knowledge given by revelation in Holy Scriptures and through Christian tradition, of God as the Source from whom all other forms of existence flow and to whom all beings return in a hunger and thirst toward greater union. God as transcendent is other than we are, incomprehensible, unpossessable, unchanging, eternal in his perfections, completely holy and independent of all outside forces. He is the fire from which all sparks come, an abyss of infinity, separating himself from the created world. The French author, A. Gardeil, insists: "The mystical experience is an immediate and experimental perception of God substantially present in the just soul a...
