PROGRESS IN PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1985

PROGRESS IN PRAYER Let us briefly describe the early stages of interior prayer since mystics agree that everyone has to go back to them from time to time. The first methods offered to Western beginners are mostly discursive meditation, the breath-prayer and a simple phrase meditation given by St.lgnatius in his second and third methods and the lectio divina,so well described in the Benedictine form of monastic prayer. Such a lectio prayer is done in three phrases: the reading of the Word,the personal appropriation of this Word in a concrete,contemporary and meaningful way to the individual, and the personal response of the meditator. The text chosen can be long or short. When it is short it can lead to affective prayer through the repetition of the same words. Little by little the meditator should normally be led to the stage of affective prayer and even of the prayer of simplicity. Herbert Smith describes this latter simplification of our prayer: Our mind,will and affections have r...

YOGIC CONCENTRATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1985

YOGIC CONCENTRATION Thousands of years before the advent of Christianity,Hindu Sannyasa hit upon the lotus position as one giving maximum relaxation and integration of body and spirit. The cross-legged sitting can be done in several ways according to the ability of the individual. Whatever position is chosen:lotus,half-lotus,or even sitting on a chair,one must make certain that the back is kept straight. The Zen masters of Buddhism recommend to keep the eyes half opened and to gaze. The hands are kept on top of one another on the lap. One has to find out by himself/herself which way of sitting and holding one's hands are the best. What is important is that one's body should be relaxed and comfortable but wide awake and inwardly attentive. Krishna advises Arjuna in the Baghadvad Gita: "Being seated there,making the mind one-pointed and subduing activities of mind and senses,let him practice Yoga for self-purification." This is what the Eastern Christian mystics called "pushing the mi...

BREATHING AND RELAXATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1985

BREATHING AND RELAXATION Breathing properly is the fundamental first step to uniting the powers of the body and soul into a totally,integrated person. It is absolutely necessary for periods of concentration such as study and formal prayer. Rhythmic breathing before entering upon such periods tends to make ourselves detached,relaxed and hence more free to reflect and focus our attention steadily,calmly and effortlessly on a given idea or in Christian prayer upon the indwelling Lord. Let us study for a moment what is called abdominal breathing or diaphramatic breathing. We see the proper breathing done when a baby is sleeping quietly. Adults,through tension,introduce obstacles to this process. The pattern is: to fill the lungs from the abdomen. The upper chest usually does not move,except in full lung expansion. It is the abdomen that in normal,calm breathing expands and retracts and in this process the inhaled air is forced into the middle and upper chest. To facilitate diaphramatic ...

PROSTRATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1985

PROSTRATION A form of body-prayer almost lost to Westerners is that of prostration. The lying on the floor,face down,fosters a great awareness of one's creaturehood. The body is completely opened,exposed,defenseless. The deep connection between openness,truth and simplicity is tangibly felt. It seems that the empirical ego runs away and there is only the true self left. One realizes that there is not much difference between one's self and the floor: only a bunch of chemical substances one upon another. For four senses the only contact with the world is through the floor and one feels amost one with it. The only sense which can act normally is the hearing,but all it can tell is that life is going on around it without it. All that one possesses is of no use:objects cannot be manipulated,talents cannot be used,no activity can be performed. This is a great help to maintain the person in a deep passive attitude. This powerlessness brings forth the need to lose oneself in the Absolute,to ...

A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF THE JESUS PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1985

A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF THE JESUS PRAYER I would like to share with you,the reader, a simple breathing prayer around the well-known Jesus Prayer,that is so much a part of Eastern Christian prayer. Perhaps it can open you to your own form of prayer that combines the elements of your body,soul and spirit relationships in an integrated prayer of deep personalism between you and Jesus Christ. I begin by uttering only the word LORD. Each word of this prayer which I shall pronounce,one after the other,slowly,until I have completed the whole phrase,is a living experience of the indwelling Jesus. After each word, I shall pause to contemplate its significance. The first word,"Lord," is an appeal,a sigh from the soul, an ejaculation. And now I say: LORD JESUS ! I speak the name of my Lord. I call Him by His own name,His sweet and tender name. Now I direct my sighing toward the name and presence of Jesus. My sigh is fulfilled in His name and presence. If I go to the depths of my sigh,l discov...

INSCAPE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

INSCAPE No. 6, 1985; NOVEMBER- 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 always with you! November always recalls to our mind the three great feasts of All Saints,All Souls and Thanksgiving. And rightly so,for this month brings together the harvest of the past year in order that we might remember the harvest of our lives. That harvest awaits ua in its fullness in the life to come. Yet we should reflect often on our growth in union with God which is already a reality,producing a harvest of fruit in our loving service toward others. The theme of this month's teaching is: "Finding God in All Things". This important teaching is given because I have seen in teaching and preaching ,especially in retreats,how modern Christians seem to separate prayer from their work,contemplation from action,vertical relations with God from horizontal relations with people and material creatures. Is it no...

FINDING GOD IN ALL THINGS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

FINDING GOD IN ALL THINGS You and I have lived most of our lives in a separation between our prayer and our activities. God's two main commandments seem to pull us in two directions at once. We have the vertical relationship to God in His command Love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, thy whole soul,thy whole mind and thy whole strength" (Dt 6:7). This is a seeming call to desert,to silence,to interior prayer alone with God. But,then,on the other hand,we are commanded by God to love our neighbor as we love ourselves (Lv 19:17). Do we not very often feel that our "horizontal" relationships with other human beings,when we truly love them, can pose a threat to our vertical relationships with God? How many religious priests,nuns and brothers have been trained to solve this paradox of the two commands of God by a loving,prayerful,self-surrendering of ourselves only to God? To other human beings we give service through our virtuous deeds. But were such religious and also other Christ...

MARY AND MARTHA [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

MARY AND MARTHA In the Gospel account of Mary and Martha,sisters of Lazarus whom Jesus loved,we see in the patristic tradition the reference to them as symbols or types of the contemplative and the active lives,the anima (diffused awareness) and the animus(focused consciousness) that must be integrated and not opposed in all human beings. Mary sat lovingly at the feet of Christ and listened to His words. Martha was busy in the kitchen, but apparently very anxious about her work in preparing the meal that it was taking her away from hearing Christ. If Mary chose the better part,as Jesus said (Lk 10:42),it was because she was centered with complete attention upon Him to receive His words. Martha was preoccupied with herself and was "anxious and troubled about many things,” She wanted to please the Lord,as all of us Christians wish,but she was focused upon herself and her desires,while Mary was totally turned toward Christ in lovingly attention. This Gospel story should teach us that w...

ACTIVE PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

ACTIVE PRAYER Little by little we should observe that there is little separation between what we do and the motive for which we do it. We will be one with God in all our activities through the same will act that focuses us by faith,hope and love only upon God,even though we need to concentrate on the work at hand. Such an ability to live in the presence of God can be attained only by devotion to interior purification and humble fidelity to some disciplined time daily for formal prayer. Faithful exercise of prayer at definite times is an indispensable condition for remaining united to God and for finding Him in all things during our busy activities. We will never discover God in the multiplicity of our daily life if we have not found Him in any concentrated time each day within ourselves. Yet we must not conceive formal prayer as a time of building up "spiritual capital," something we acquire in the morning and spend during the day,burning it up in a multitude of activities. Far from...

NOT PANTHEISM BUT PAN-EN-THEISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

NOT PANTHEISM BUT PAN-EN-THEISM We are not asked to turn our mind away from what we are doing in order to make ourselves conscious of God's presence. Trying to divide our mind would soon become intolerable and the source of thousand anxieties. We have only one thought-process. We cannot at the same time concentrate with equal strength both upon God and upon persons whom we are encountering. But unity of prayer and action must come rather from the union of our will with God's will. God is constantly present and willfully working in each moment of our lives. We can unite our will with His will to do all for love and glory to Him. St. Paul teaches us that we are to find God in all things and all things in God. This will be the transfiguration of this material world that will be a continuing contemplation of all things in God. This can never be conceived as pantheism which doctrine holds that all things are God. God absorbs all material creation into Himself so nothing will exist but Go...

THE DISCIPLINE OF WORK [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

THE DISCIPLINE OF WORK Our loving devotion to God will consist in the kind of familiarity with God which will increase with work undertaken for His love. Our work in all details will find God as its beginning,middle and end. Fidelity to work will be our way of advancing the kingdom of God. Creatures will progregressively reveal for us the glory of God,even as God intended them to do. We will find ourselves returning to Eden as we live in harmony with God's will and in loving service to the world around us. By recognizing the astion of God through us and cooperating with this action, we will glorify Him in His creative work. This supernatural view of all things in God will make us understand human beings and created things more in their full splendor of creation. We will come to see fully that all things are given us to serve and glorify God. Thus we understand that everything is a gift of God and it is right to return it to Him. True devotion will grow within us. But this prayerful ...

CONTEMPLATION TO OBTAIN DIVINE LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

CONTEMPLATION TO OBTAIN DIVINE LOVE If you have ever made a retreat based upon St.lgnatius' Spiritual Exercises,you will be familiar with the beautiful,final contemplative consideration which he proposes to the retreatant to help him/her to return to daily life and live as a contemplative in action. We can best summarize what has been said in this teaching by outlining the features of this consideration. St.lgnatius always begins and ends with God who is love (1 Jn 4:8). But love is always a movement that explodes outside from the depths of a person's being to share that being with another. God moves outwardly from within the trinitarian community of love to communicate Himself to us human beings unto communion. Love needs an external expression. Love is proved,is enfleshed,and truly becomes love by deeds. Faith without deeds is dead (Ja 2:17). Creative action best communicates love given. But such creative action admits of several levels of self-giving ar being "present" to the one...

A PRAYER EXERCISE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1985

A PRAYER EXERCISE In the presence of the living Trinity abiding within you,stretch out your hands and ask God to fill them with His energies of love. Beg Him to use your weaknesses in order that His glory may appear to you in each event. May you have new eyes to contemplate Jesus Christ,shining "diaphanously" (in Teilhard's term) in each moment of your material existence and in each creature which you encounter. Cry out in pain that Jesus Christ be brought forth in glory. Offer your hands and lips to be channels of the healing power of Christ among His people again. God is at the heart of matter. You are to become a contemplative in action! Learn that your life,your work is to praise God in: His gifts;to be present to God in reverence as you discover Him in all things;above all, work with Him who is working inside of each event, that Christ be brought forth and you,with the risen Jesus and His Spirit of love,can be a praise, reverence and service out of returned love to Him who is L...

INSCAPE 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 always with you] December ends our year of 1985* An ending usually brings to us a sense,perhaps,of sadness,at least,of some regret that we did not use God’s gifts more proftably. Yet in our Christian liturgical season,December brings us the excitement of the ever-re-curring promise of the birth of Jesus Christ into our hearts and our world. jj e j_ s s tiH the Prince of Peace who comes into our darkened world as Light. He comes as Divine Physician to heal us in all our broken relationships toward God,our neighbors,our world. We cry out for His corning to bring us into anew era of peace, joy and happiness. And,yet,as Christians we know He is always abiding within us and working dynamically around us at all times. It is we who have to receive Him in the cave of our hearts. We are the ones who have to be born into His life./ I have cho...
