JOURNEY INTO THE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

JOURNEY INTO THE HEART Now that you and I are becoming older, is it not true that we catch ourselves reading with greater interest the obituary accounts in our newspapers? And how frequently we find that persons our own age, or even (gasp!) much younger than we are, have died of the common cause of death: heart failure. We all know that when one's heart fails to beat anymore, the person is usually dead! Yet there is in our Western world, even in Christianity of the West, a greater type of heart failure and cause of spiritual death that most of us aren't even aware of. And that is the failure of most of us to journey deeper into greater intimacy with the Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who dwell within what the Old and New Testaments call simply the heart. This is evidently not our physical heart, but that placeless place within our deepest consciousness that is the seat of our human life, of all that touches us in the depths of our personality: all affections, passions, desires...

UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING OF HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING OF HEART How can we understand such a basic symbol as that of the heart to mean our deepest levels of consciousness and inner awareness, as the "place" where we meet God? Because of our "being-in-the-world," we are basically creatures who are not naturally all the time focused upon God in our consciousness as our beginning and our end. We are being pulled in all directions by persons, things, and events that clamor for our attention. We need to have a "focus" in order that our deepest relationship with God in an intimate, personal, loving union may not be too diffuse and abstract. We need a concrete presence in which our loving relationship with God may command the center of our consciousness and awareness and thus exert maximum influence on our thoughts, words, and actions. Our human heart is both a vital physical organ and a basic symbol of our existence in life. Even more, the heart symbolizes our transcendence beyond the world, the inner stretching powe...

HEART FAILURE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

HEART FAILURE But why have we in the West lost the ability to appreciate a spirituality of the heart? Why do we fear taking the journey into our heart to encounter the awesome Trinity and to surrender completely to the guidance of the divine Community of love? This past Christmas I re-read that childhood classic entitled, Yes. Virginia. There Really Is a Santa Claus. It describes a world of childlike wonder and joy that come from faith, hope, and love of God's Spirit. This world unfortunately becomes lost to most adults once they have become educated to believe that the only knowledge is that which is rational and logical, discursive and understood by our own intellectual powers. Any other knowledge is mere poetry and fantasy of starry-eyed children before they stop believing in things like Santa Claus. This short story first appeared in the fall of 1897 as an answer given by an editorial writer of a New York city paper (now defunct) to the inquiry of a little girl named Virginia. S...

DISAPPEARANCE OF HEART KNOWLEDGE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

DISAPPEARANCE OF HEART KNOWLEDGE We today stand at a momentous turning point in the development of human consciousness. Human consciousness has evolved from the archaic stage where, thousands and thousands of years ago, human beings lived with a consciousness that made them one with the universe around them. There was an identity or fusion with all material creatures and no differentiated sense of a human ego as an individual, capable of standing superior through an intellect to the subhuman animals. There was no concept of space and time yet. In the stage of mythic consciousness human beings became aware of a human soul and an individual ego, that made them conscious of being different than the others "over there" and not here, at this time and in this space. But a radical leap in consciousness took place between 800 and 200 BC with its apex around 500 BC when the Buddha, Confucius, Lao-tzu, the Greek philosophers, and the prophets of Israel were bringing forth a mental consciousne...

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS Our President can call for a nation of a thousand lights and a people more gentle. Yet he can rattle nuclear missiles capable of destroying our universe through an all-out war among all nations. What a power has been placed into our hands through science to transform the world or to destroy it! We cringe in our comer of this universe, afraid, feeling the need of a Someone who, unlike us, is totally and consistently unselfish... Someone who is Love itself. But what is in our human makeup capable of launching us into new levels of conscious oneness with the Source of all beauty, knowledge, wisdom, and love? God has placed deeply within us a center that knows no circumference. It is in the intimacy and depth of our biblical heart where we discover ourselves as unique persons existing at this core of our being. At the core abides infinite Love in the Trinity. We cannot any longer live in relationships to our material world, to God, to ourselves, an...

ENTERING INTO THE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

ENTERING INTO THE HEART The first movement toward anew, mystical oneness with God and the universe is that each of us learns to overcome the sole validity of rational thinking. This can come about in our lives by actual experience when, as all the Eastern Fathers unanimously taught, we take our minds and descend into our heart. To continue to pray to a God that is solely extrinsic to us and contacted exclusively by our own ideas, our discursive reasoning, is to mock the reality of God. Any contemplative, from either East or West, knows from experience through the inner discipline required to stay in the "heart," the inner cave of our consciousness and unconscious, that God is never an object to be looked at with one's intellectual powers or to be petitioned out of one's own self-centeredness, so filled with a "bias" toward self. God is to be experienced as the Ground of our being, as present to the contemplative as the very breath that the breather breathes unto his/her very life. O...

HEART-SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

HEART-SPIRIT We need to return to Scripture and the vision of us human beings as given by the early mystical theologians of Eastern Christianity in order that we might gain new insight which is unfamiliar to most of us in the West. Thus we may discover ourselves on the heart-spirit level of consciousness that can come about only through the gift of the Holy Spirit. It was St. Irenaeus of the 2nd century, the first great Christian theologian, who clearly distinguished, as did St. Paul, that we human beings live on three different levels, namely, of body, soul, and spirit. Paul writes: "May the God of peace make you perfect and holy; and may you all be kept safe and blameless, spirit, soul, and body..." (1 Th. 5:23). According to St. Irenaeus, our body level and the soul which informs the bodily faculties to place us in the space and time of a material world together form the imageness according to which all human beings possess a potential relationship in intimate union with the Word...

PRAYING IN THE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 February 1991

PRAYING IN THE HEART Here are some suggestions that have been developed more specifically in past INSCAPE teachings: 1. Give twenty minutes early in the morning to sit and, through deep breathing, practise letting go of mind control to touch oneness with the indwelling Trinity. Unite your breathing in and out with a breath-prayer centered on the indwelling Trinity or Jesus Christ. You enter into being by finding your unique true self in God-Being and no longer are you ego-worldly conscious. 2. Make all of your ordinary day of joys, sorrows, sufferings, work, and leisure the "place" to pray in the heart. Bring every thought, word, and deed under obedience to the indwelling Jesus Lord (2 Cos. 10:5). 3. In the evening enter deeply into your heart to allow God's Spirit to show you how deeply that day you have lived in your heart, what brokenness needs integration and healing, how to live more intensely in your heart-spirit consciousness the next day and the rest of your life. To pray in...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, 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! This entire month of March finds us deeply into the sacred liturgical season of Lent. It is a graceful time for all of us to meet the living God of Jesus more deeply and in greater purity of heart. This is a wonderful time, not only for more prayer and fasting, but also for solid study on our part of God's revelation as passed on to us through the chosen Apostles of Jesus and the teaching charism in the Church, given to the bishops who have authority to teach and preserve us from human errors in essential matters of faith and morals. I have chosen to push your minds as I invite you to reflect with me in prayerfully considering this teaching on the topic that the Eastern Fathers of the Church unanimously called divinization or deification. These early theologians and mystics built up a theology of divinization around the two...

DIVINIZATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

DIVINIZATION As I was praying and reflecting on a possible topic for this month's teaching that would help you, the reader, in this period of Lent, I came across a story from the annals of Japanese Zen Buddhism. There once was a master swordsman named Shoken. He was plagued by an enormous rat. He put his cat in the room to do battle and rid him of this pesky rat but the rat sprang at the cat and bit it in the face and sent it off howling! Shoken then brought in a number of neighborhood cats with good reputations as rat-killers, but all ran away as the rat viciously attacked them and bit them. Shoken then tried to kill the rat by his own power as a swordsman, but the rat dodged him and finally bit him in the face. He sent a messenger to fetch the best rat-killer cat there was in the kingdom. The cat that was presented to Shoken as the very best rat-killer in the kingdom looked ever so ordinary that Shoken had no hope of anything special from her. As he cautiously let the cat in, she ...

CALLED TO THE BEYOND WITHIN [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

CALLED TO THE BEYOND WITHIN As we journey during this holy period of Lent, we too are called within ourselves to fight the spiritual "rats" that infest our homes and our cities, but above all, that roam around inside of our unconscious. We practice certain ascetical techniques such as fasting, almsgiving, and social involvement; helping the poor and the hungry, those in physical, psychical, and spiritual poverty; praying a bit more, receiving the sacraments and attending Mass more frequently, etc. But what gives us inner strength to overcome all enemies that attack us and be healed from all that is false in our perception of ourselves in relationship to God, others, and to the created world? It is the ability to "be calm but vigilant, because your enemy the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to eat. Stand up to him, strong in faith...the God of all grace who called you to eternal glory in Christ will see that all is well again: he will confirm, strengt...

DISCOVERING YOUR TRUE SELF [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

DISCOVERING YOUR TRUE SELF Lent is an excellent time to discover our true nature as divine children of the Trinity that dwells within us. "Children, you have already overcome these false prophets because you are from God and you have in you one who is greater than anyone in this world. But we are children of God" (1 Jn 4:4,6). We really, even now, are transformed through God the Father coming to us through his two "hands", Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, as St. Irenaeus of the second century described it. This is what the Eastern Fathers called the on-going process that extends itself even into the life to come, the process of divinization or deification by grace into participators of God's very own nature (2 Pt. 1:4).

DTVTNTZATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

DTVTNTZATION The early Eastern Fathers described the process of how we human beings are transformed into true children of God by his lavishing upon us his love, in the forms of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ (1 Jn. 3:1), by the Greek word theosis. St. Irenaeus (and all other early Fathers, who followed him in repeating his summary of this divinization of us human beings in the true image and likeness of Jesus Christ) wrote: "God became man in order that man might become God" (Adv. Haer. V; Praef.). We can find a similar expression in St. Athanasius: "The Logos in the Spirit gives to human beings glory and by deification and adoption leads them to the Father" (Ad Adelphium). Clement of Alexandria expressed the same process: "Logos, the Word of God, became man in order that you can learn through the intercession of Man, how man can become god by grace" (Protrepticos). The most adequate explanation of divinization as the work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit seems to be given by S...

GODS BY GRACE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

GODS BY GRACE The most often cited passage from Scripture is Jn. 10:34-35: "Is it not written in your Law: I said, 'You are gods'? So the Law uses the word 'gods' of those to whom the Word of God was addressed." What we should notice is that even in the Old Testament, the guardian of monotheism, the word "gods" (from Ps. 82:6), which Jesus here quotes, was applied to all human beings. Another important text is from 1 Jn. 3:1-2: "We are already the children of God, but what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed; all we know is that when it is revealed we shall be like him.” And from 1 Jn. 4:17: "...even in this world we have become as he is." The quote from 2 Pt. 1:4 is the one mostly developed by the early theologians: "...you will be able to share the divine nature." These words are explained in the texts as entrance into the very divine life of the Holy Trinity as the process of divinization. There is a development of the divinization or deification process in the D...

GOD'S ESSENCE AND ENERGIES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

GOD'S ESSENCE AND ENERGIES During Lent we could do many things, even heroic acts of love. However, as long as we do not discover ourselves in our true nature, in our intimate likeness with Jesus Christ, who gives us a share through his Spirit of thevery divine Life within us, we would do such "loving" acts out of our worldly ego, our false ego , which seeks a reward or merit for what we seemingly have done by our own power. This would only lock us further into an illusory self and never set us free to be the true person God has destined us to become when he created us in his Son, Jesus Christ, and his Spirit. The "good news" that Jesus came to reveal to us and make possible through the gift of his Spirit is that the undivided and perfect triune God has freely willed to create us "according to his own image and likeness" (Gn. 1:26-27). To accomplish this which will always be an eternal process of continued transformation of us into sharers of God's nature, God wills to "go forth," to...

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1991

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT We achieve participation in divine life thanks to the mutual workings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. The work of the Spirit cannot be separated from the work of the risen Jesus. Thus divinization can neither be considered merely as accomplished by Christ who wins for us by his death "sanctifying grace", nor only as the sanctifying work of the Spirit alone. It is the interacting of both a proper Christology and Pneumatology or a proper understanding of the workings of Christ and the Spirit in the history of our human salvation. The work of the Holy Spirit begins and grows within the inward life of each Christian. The Holy Spirit dwells within us as in a temple. He is more internal to us than we are to ourselves. Through the Holy Spirit the will of God is not external for us; we are given internally the grace and revelation that our human will unanimously cooperates with the divine will. This is the essence of divinization. We seek, as Jesus in his ea...
