EXPERIENCING UNION WITH GOD THROUGH LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

EXPERIENCING UNION WITH GOD THROUGH LOVE Mysticism or the deepest levels of contemplative prayer concern our self-abandonment to God. We can only surrender ourselves to- God to the degree that we have experienced His immense,burning love for us individually.' Mysticism is not a honeymoon with God. It is a process of self-emptying. It is a growth in consciousness of God's loving concern for us. The result of this "mystical union" with God's uncreated energies immanently living within us and loving us is that we are impelled to love God in return with a similar self-giving. Love is always paradoxically measured by the degree of emptiness to which we are ready to submit on behalf of the beloved. We are not,in true love,looking for a reward or loving out of an "angle."We do not seek God as a separated object given to us because we have done something to deserve Him as a reward. An inner compulsion nothing less than God's own love in us,His uncreated energies of the Father,Son and Holy S...

GOD,OUR ROCK [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

GOD,OUR ROCK Jesus has come among us,gentle and humble of heart,and has given Himself to us in total emptying of Himself for us on the cross. He has imaged for us the length,the breadth,the height and the depth of the love of God the Father for us. He pours out His Spirit so that we may see that same loving presence pouring itself out in each event that surrounds us and breaks in upon us at every moment. Yet we fail to see,to ’’come into" each event and there discover God’s call to build our lives upon Him,as our Rock, our complete strength and support in our humble frailty and weakness. He calls us to believe in His infinite love. He begs us to trust in His faithful love in what will happen. ”1 have loved you with an everlasting love, so I am constant in my affection for you” (Jr 31:3). Above all,He calls us into a spiritual childhood that progressively becomes realized as we lovingly abandon our lives to His guidance. He is God and,therefore,He can,in justice,do with us whatever H...

GOD TRULY LOVES YOU [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

GOD TRULY LOVES YOU God loves you infinitely. He already sees you as beautiful,His noble child. Jesus has already made it possible that you are, through His Spirit dwelling in you, a child ofGod (Rm 8:15; Ga 4:6). "Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us,by letting us be called God’s children" (1 Jn 3:1). But why don't you and I see what we really are? When will we give up our insecurities that we mistakenly think are our true strength? Contemplation is God's freeing us from our false selves to allow us through His Spirit of love to enter into our true selves by living no longer we ourselves but Christ lives in us (Ga 2:20). But this unveiling of God's perfect love for us takes place in the now moment of our human situation in which we find ourselves. It is a long process that extends itself even into the life to come through the purifying "therapy" of purgatory. But it is always beginning with the event of this moment. Here God is now incarnating His loving Word again,...

THE COURAGE TO BELIEVE' [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

THE COURAGE TO BELIEVE' It takes courage to confront the fear of being alone with our inner poverty and weaknesses. To avow that we have turned away from self-love to begin an advance toward true human freedom and love brings us into a certain negativity. In true,healing solitude we confront our brokenness and !l not~yet fi condition. We recognize with St . Paul : "Th is is what makes me a prisoner of that law of sin which lives inside my body 1 (Rn 7:23). We cry out for mercy,knowing now in a total experience of inner poverty that we cannot heal ourselves . It takes greater courage in solitude to take the next step: to enter into the loving presence of God and to believe with total commitment that God will be faithful to us. This was the courage in solitude that Abraham,Moses and Elijah showed in their total surrender to serve God. The Book of Hebrews holds up Abraham especially as the father of our faith. "It was through his faith that Abraham obeyed the call to set out for a coun...

ABANDONMENT IS OUR RESPONSE TO GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

ABANDONMENT IS OUR RESPONSE TO GOD Such faith is a graceful gift of God’s personal presence to the broken,little ones of His Kingdom. He condescends to come to their side to help them. He pledges His unconditional word that He will be faithful. "Always true to his promises,Yahweh shows love in all he does" (Ps 145:13). When we are given such a gift of God's presence as dynamically loving us in every event and moment,then complete abandonment is our true response to His fidelity to us, There is no longer any solitude. God is ever at our side. We are freed at last from our greatest fear of being alone,that no one will care for us."With God on our side who can be against us?" (Rm 8:31). St.Paul,like the early Christians , had experienced faith, not as an intellectual assent to a given revealed truths but as an I-Thou relationship of God's loving presence,acting out His fidelity in all circumstances of Paul's life. He singles out his response to God's fidelity. No trouble,no worry, no p...

CHILDREN OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

CHILDREN OF GOD This abandonment or letting go on our part flows from the faith that God's Holy Spirit infuses into us. In this gift we experience that we are loved absolutely and eternally by God,our loving Father. The Spirit of Jesus is sent into our hearts (F.m 5:5) and dwells there (Rm B:9), giving us the experience that we are truly His children and we can call Him by the endearing,affectionate title of Abba,Father (Rm 8:15;Ga 4:6). This faith credits God with omn i potence--t hat all things in the entire world,every atom,every event,great and small--all are under His guiding power. But it goes beyond that.lt credits God with being my Father. He loves me more tenderly,with greater constancy and concern,than any human being ever could. He is love and all His actions are directed out of His fatherly love for His children. I belong to God,my Father,because He has created me and continues to preserve me in existence. But God is uniquely my Father and yours because He has created us...

THE TRANSFORMING HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

THE TRANSFORMING HOLY SPIRIT The redemptive work of Jesus Christ can be seen as an "unconcealment" of this awesome presence of the indwelling Trinity,Father, Son and Holy Spirit,but as creative fidelity in love to bring us ever more present in consciousness to this great love and thus surrender ourselves to become in the process loving children. This is a state of highest,human expanded consciousness brought about by an increased infusion of faith,hope and love by the Holy Spirit. It is only the Spirit who assures us that we are united with God and truly growing in greater loving union. He gives us the courage and faith to surrender to God’s love in all circumstances and thus progressively become more and more His loving children. Now in abandoning ourselves to God’s loving presence in each moment,we are able to pray incessantly because it is truly the power of the Spirit that prays within us as St. Paul writes.(Rm 8:27). The Spirit allows us to let go ofour preconceived ideas of re...

STILL-POINTED ATTENTIVENESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

STILL-POINTED ATTENTIVENESS Recollection or the inward silence of our hearts is striving for that "still point" of attentiveness so that God may speak His word whenever and however He wishes. The Spirit pushes our consciousness down through various levels of knowledge until we sink into the "cloud of unknowing," the state of surrendering our controlled knowledge of God and of ourselves and of the world to a new knowledge that only the Spirit of God will infuse as a gift. He taps into the regions beneath the habitual surface of our existence that we learn to turn over to God's healing love and control. Paradoxically we experience that God does not abandon us but we only then find Him as our loving Father and we realize with immense joy our true identity as His loving children. It is in the darkness of our creaturely poverty and sterility that we allow God to perform anew work of transforming us into new creatures in Christ Jesus. Solitude and poverty become community and the inherita...

AS YOU PRAY SO YOU LIVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

AS YOU PRAY SO YOU LIVE As you in your daily,personal prayer progressively come to surrender yourself totally to the.providential,loving care of the triune God working within the depths of your being, so you will experience a continued state of loving abandonment to God in each moment. Such abandonment can be called contemplative prayer. It is no longer a state of "praying" .for some minutes and then turning to perform tasks in your daily activities. Such an habitual state of childlike abandonment becomes a state of incessant prayer,of infused contemplation given by the Holy Spirit as you cooperate in each moment to live in active receptivity to God's working in your life. Thus you will be led from moment to moment into greater light as you see,by increased faith,hope and love, God's loving presence in all events. Complete abandonment is the Holy Spirit's gift to those ready to die to their false selves and begin to live in the truth of the'new creatures that they are and have alway...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: w , - T , May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with you! The month of October leads us into anew beginning. We know from the freshness and coolness of early mornings,the patchy clouds and the treasured,warming moments that make us glow so when the sun breaks through and we recall what was "all the time' 1 during the summer months. We dramatically are forced as we move full steam into autumn to realize that our lives are moving away from the hot summer years of our youthful vigor. We treasure those "warming" moments when we can relive what once was always there,but now so rarely given as sun bursts from out of overcast skies. We also look ahead and foresee even more darkened clouds, less sunshine,more rain and snow,bitterly cold winds and dampness in our bones. Life seems to be unwinding! We see our lives are moving beyond youth which we always thought would be there,as su...

LOVING THE CHRIST IN YOU [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

LOVING THE CHRIST IN YOU One of the saddest things about Christianity is that God loves us perfectly,with the full passion as revealed by Jesus Christ and His Spirit, and,yet,we continue not to love each other. The reason we do not love others is that we really do not love ourselves. Yet the second commandment of Jesus is that we love our neighbor as we love ourselves (Lv 19 :18 ;Mt .19 :19.) . Perhaps it would better be said that we hate others as we hate ourselves. And just why don't we truly love ourselves? The answer is simple enough. We do not know our true self that is constantly and freely being created with our cooperation in our oneness with Jesus Christ. We have been destined by God to be made "according to the image and likeness" (Gn 1:26) that is Jesus Christ. This is an on-going relationship revealed to us by the Holy Spirit of our oneness in Jesus Christ. When we live in our "false-self" we know only 1 one liness.God has made us for love,to love and to be loved. He who...

THE INNERMOST SELF [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

THE INNERMOST SELF Yet deep within us echoes another self. Down through all the levels of our life-experiences and idealistic desiring there is the haunting voice of a person whom we seem to know only vaguely. That person is bathed in light,peace and joy. He calls us to leave the binding slavery of the other levels and to enter into true freedom. It is the true self that God indwells,our being as spirit capable of communicating freely and spontaneously with God Spirit. It is this Spirit that,through our own self-discipline to war against our false self,reveals that we live no longer we ourselves,but Christ Jesus lives in us (Ga 2:20). Living on this level is like rising from a sickbed to step out into the brightness of a fresh,spring day and begin to live fully an exhilarating liberation. No longer do we have to obey our nagging selves,slaves to opinions to others as the sole criterion of truth,slaves to our own distored image,our habitually low profile of ourselves or victimized by...

HEART KNOWLEDGE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

HEART KNOWLEDGE As we learn to live interiorly,our progress is a movement away from our masculine dominated,rationally controlled self to a more intuitive grasp of reality. Anew knowledge is given. At first it is experienced as coming out of our deep reservoir where it seemingly always existed,yet unknown to our superficial self. Its depths seem to stretch downward into infinity,into the very "heart" or consciousness of the indwelling Trinity. Gradually as we have the courage and sincerity to surrender to this new knowledge,we become aware that it flows from a communicating Person,indwelling within us. He becomes gradually more present to us. We learn to let go and surrender to His loving presence. We experience an integrating process taking place between the feminine and masculine aspect, within us. We are becoming an I,now in free,loving dialogue with Christ as a Thou, an indwelling presence. This is more than praying,above all,saying prayers. Integration takes place at this deep ...

GOD'S LOVE,ETERNALLY PERFECT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

GOD'S LOVE,ETERNALLY PERFECT Perhaps and hopefully,all of us have been caught up in deep prayer or in deep,loving communication with husband,wife,friend, man or woman or God. In a f1 ash,barriers seemed non-existent. Love swung wide the gates and there we were. Two persons in one. We knew each other beyond time. Something in the other said there was a need and something in me cared with tenderness and gave. There was no need for reason,yet it all had a wonderful,wordless reason. If we experience oneness with a beloved friend,how much deeper ought such oneness be experienced in our loving union with God? God enjoys freedom in the loving union of Father,Son and Spirit and in the Trinity's free love for us as individuals. We can,at rare moments,take wings and fly up and beyond our habitual level of consciousness. Like an eagle with mighty pinions,we hover over the world,one with all,all in one. Yet within the Trinity there is perfect recognition of the uniqueness and reverence for the ...

HOW BEAUTIFUL WE ARE IN GOD'S LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

HOW BEAUTIFUL WE ARE IN GOD'S LOVE If you and I at this moment through the infusion of the Holy Spirit's gifts of faith,hope and love could realize how beautiful we really are in God's immense,perfect love for us,we would never again be lonely. When we live out of this great truth of God's love for each of us in a very unique self-giving as Trinity and indwelling, close to us,then we live in reality. The secret of human happiness and true greatness is to "remember" always the presence of the indwelling Trinity that transforms us into Christ's human consciousness. Jesus in His humanity grew daily,moment by moment,in the awareness of His true beauty as loved uniquely by the Eternal Father through the Holy Spirit. He responded in each event to His inner dignity,a sheer gift of self-giving from the Father. This the goal of our lives,the meaning of why God loves us. It is to make us His children (1 Jn 3:1-3). The Father wishes to give Himself to each of us as He perfectly gives Himself t...

FOR ME HE DIES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

FOR ME HE DIES When we consider this perfect love of God indwelling us,we see how truly unfree we are to respond always to that infinite love. No doubt we fail in exercising a greater vigilance over the movement s of the dark areas within us that prevent our true,innermost self from coming forth in response to such love offered. This necessitates a deeper growth in knowledge,given only by God’s Spirit,of our true self in Jesus Christ. This is the person we truly are in God's eyes. It is a constant process of greater awareness of this indwelling love of God for us in our particularity. It is the Spirit of Jesus sent into our hearts that reveals the depths of God's love for us (Rm 5:5). St. Paul understood that God's infinite,per feet,present and caring . love for Himself was made manifested in Christ Jesus. He is the perfect image of the Father (Col I:ls).Seeing His love for us,we see the love of the Father for us (Jn 14:9; 15:9). And so,St.Paul, overwhelmed by God's love in His Word...

GOD LIVES WITHIN YOU [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1987

GOD LIVES WITHIN YOU The good news that Jesus has come to reveal to us and through the release of His Spirit to make possible for us to experience habitually is that this all-loving God is not far from us. In Him, the unknown God whom no man can see and live (Ex 33:21) we live and move and have our being (Ac 17:28). Although there will always remain something unapproachable,unpossessable and unfathomable about God,the Trinity,yet Jesus Christ's role in His incarnation, death,resurrection is to pour the love of God into our hearts through the Spirit that is given to us so that we can "know" and experience God as a community of loving persons,literally giving themselves to us individually as unique Father,Son. and Spirit. This Trinity abides in us at all times. God touches us in His uncreated energies of love. The unique,personalistic relations of Father,Son and Holy Spirit burst forth from the Trinity and continue to touch us and swirl around us at all times in the context of the pre...
