AVOIDING INNER SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1991

AVOIDING INNER SILENCE We avoid turning deeply within ourselves and remaining in silence because our illusory self seeks to hold on to a world of false securities, our insecurities, a world we have lived in from early consciousness. We do not think and act out of our true selves in God's living Word which abides within our hearts. Thus, we can easily see where the fault lies in our spiritual relationships with God and neighbor. Our fragmented, sinful nature does not like to live in silence because silence has a way of revealing the self beyond all role-playing and posturing before a God who we ignorantly believe can be manipulated into our perception of reality. We pray with distractions and without fervor because we are afraid to be our true self in God's presence. By refusing to enter into silence in the depth of our heart and experience an inner transformation by surrendering to the unseen God, we are refusing to be ourself.

SPIRITUAL SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1991

SPIRITUAL SILENCE We have said that silence, especially that of speaking to God in prayer, is more than merely physical. Tme silence opens us up to an inner state of humility and poverty. As the Spirit of God lets his tight of truth shine upon our true self, our unique person enspirited and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit (Rm. 8:15), we are filled with a spiritual sense of our nothingness and sinfulness before the beauty of the All-Holy. We die on the spirit level to our false, worldly ego as we become broken in spirit. No longer is there the arrogance and self-assurance of one who was convinced that he or she had truly met the Lord in every rationalization and action, but who had lived in selfcenteredness. We begin now more habitually to stand empty before the richness of God, beggars with nothing to commend ourselves. "My sacrifice is this broken spirit. You will not scorn this crushed and broken heart" (Ps. 51:17). Poverty and silence coalesce before the awesome presence of...

THE PARADOX OF SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1991

THE PARADOX OF SILENCE When we live on the surface of our being we live in illusion and darkness. When we withdraw from noise and our own control over our lives and enter into a waiting, surrendering silence before God to hear his Word, we truly make a transition from darkness to light. There comes to us a deeper awareness of hidden things. We begin to move freely into the inner world of the invisible, yet most real. At first it seems that our own weakness hinders us from comprehending God and our true self. But it becomes a keener and keener realization as we persevere in inner silence. God's great transcendence living within us fills us with an inner silence which becomes our most intense means of communication with God It is not by doing something but by surrendering ourselves in love that we become our true self in his love.

FROM KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD TO LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1991

FROM KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD TO LOVE Darkness and silence are the realms of the indwelling Trinity—Father, Son, and Spiritliving and acting through their uncreated energies of love. The Trinity, God as a community of loving, self-sacrificing, divine persons, is the uncreated Ground of all being, the abyss of mystery that exceeds all human knowledge. Yet the heavenly Father speaks his Word, Jesus Christ, who is light, revelation, speech, and meaning to us who wish to attune ourselves silently to him as Divine Word. To turn within and to accept the silence surrounding us as remote yet present, to accept our humility and poverty as part of our true existential being, but also to accept God's presence as loving and healing our brokenness is for us to live in faith, graced by the ineffable presence of him who grounds all human reality. It is in the silenced heart that we learn to know that God is God, but also a community of an I-Thou in a We of persons, each giving himself in self-emptying ...

MEDITATION: BE STILL; I AM YOUR GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1991

MEDITATION: BE STILL; I AM YOUR GOD The aim of this meditation is to help you enter into inner silence on the body, soul, and spirit levels and experience your oneness in the indwelling Trinity. I. SILENCE ON THE BODY LEVEL A. To relax all parts of your body, breathe deeply and diaphragmatically. Feel the diaphragm muscle in the abdominal area extend itself outwardly. As you breathe out slowly, feel the diaphragm seeming to move inward. Feel that basic rhythm, so much like the ebb and flow of the ocean tide. Close your eyes and concentrate on all the individual parts of your body. As you let go of any tension, believe by faith that God is present in all parts of your body, which is a temple of God. Enjoy that loving presence of the triune God within you. Let go of control of your life and experience the pulsating energies of the love of God within you. Desire to surrender your entire being in return to God with childlike, trusting love. E. SILENCE ON THE MIND LEVEL A. Still your min...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 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! October brings to most of us a month that is full of peace and calm. There is a freshness in the cool air. There is a crackle as we step through woods whose trees drop silently their golden leaves before our feeL The rays of the sun are not so burning in heat, yet they warm us with a reassurance that all is well with nature. It is a time of reflection on seeds sown in rainy spring, sprouted into blades of wheat in hot summer and now grown to full harvest in the fall. It is a time for rejoicing that we too are made not merely to die, but to enter into the fullness of God's very own life. October is also, it seems to me, a fitting time for me to thank all of you for your love-offerings that make it possible for us to continue to publish INSCAPE and to send it to your door each month. Costs are ever rising but, at the same time...

NEED OF INNER ATTENTIVENESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

NEED OF INNER ATTENTIVENESS It is this inner activity of one's mind that is all-important in prayer and in the proper use of all creation to praise and glorify God. All external activity, unless the mind or heart accompanies it and directs it to God's praise, is useless before God If your heart, the deepest level of consciousness, is fixed in loving adoration and obedience to God, no enemy can touch you or take you away from being centered on God, your ultimate goal. In fact, then the very world of temptadons becomes the arena where you, in trials, can be tested and grow into a deeper, purer love of God. 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 would love ourselves (Mt. 22:37-40). Y...

NEED OF INNER DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

NEED OF INNER DISCIPLINE St. Paul knew the importance of disciplining his body in order that he might run to win the crown in the race for salvation (1 Cos. 9:24-27). He strained ahead and never looked back, all in order to do whatever would be necessary to gain the "prize which God calls us upwards to receive in Christ Jesus" (Ph. 3:14). He described the spiritual life in terms of a warfare, a battle engaged against spiritual forces that are seeking destruction of all that is good. God will grant us strength but we must resist the cunning of the devil by taking up all God's armor (Ep. 6:10-17). St. Peter strongly insists on the need for discipline against the attacks of the enemy: "Be sober and watch well; the devil, who is your enemy goes about roaring like a lion to find his prey, but you, grounded in the faith, must face him boldly" (1 Pt. 5:8-9).

SOBER VIGILANCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

SOBER VIGILANCE Using the above text from the first epistle of St. Peter, the early Fathers of the desert built a teaching about what they termed nepsis. This word comes from the Greek word, nepo, which means to be sober, not inebriated or intoxicated. It refers to a mental sobriety, a mental balance, an internal disposition of attention to the movement of God's Spirit leading us to true discernment of how we should react to any given situation or temptation according to our true dignity as God's loving children. In this state you are not moved impulsively by your own desires or passions, but you hold yourself in abeyance until you know what this or that thought is all about in light of God's Logos or Word. God is the criterion of all your choices as you seek to act always out of love of God and neighbor. Freedom is not primarily having the possibility of choosing good or evil, but ultimately choosing always the good according to God's Logos. This is true integration according to th...

SELF-POSSESSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

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. 8). Such self-possession requires great "spiritual effort." It demands that we attend to ourselves and be centered. Thomas Merton writes in a similar vein: If I love God with my heart, I have got to have a heart, 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)

ATTEND TO YOURSELF [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

ATTEND TO YOURSELF In my novitiate training I was taught a Latin phrase: "Attende tibi," which came originally from St. Basil of the 4th century. We novices were told that meant we were to mind our own business! We were not to be curious about the affairs of others. Seriously, we were to center upon our rapid climb to sanctity. In the mind of Basil and all other great ascetics of the early Church, however, it meant that each of us were to cultivate a greater capacity on body, soul, and spirit levels for inner attention to the given moment and the task at hand. It is a discipline of the human spirit that allows us to draw near to God so that everything we do is for love of him and not out of our own selfishness. It is the highest desire of the prayerful mind and heart and the goal of the human journey to love God with our whole being and our neighbor as we love ourselves. Inner attention drives away any mechanical acting out of routine or learned response. In short, we move toward gr...

ATTENTION AS RESTING IN GOD'S WORD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

ATTENTION AS 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. According to the early Christians who inhabited the deserts, one's docility in listening to the Word of God was measured in terms of one's ability to rest in the Lord or quiet all inordinate desires. Teilhard de Chardin calls such a listening state, passionate indifference , whereby we Christians, called to be living temples of God in which he reveals himself, are to surrender ourselves totally to the indwelling Trinity. This state of attentiveness is comparable to the seventh day of rest that the Lord took after his labors of creating the world. It is the new day of rest, the day of kairos, the time of salvation in which we human beings choose always to do...

GOD’S EXTERIOR COMMUNICATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

GOD’S EXTERIOR COMMUNICATION God reveals himself through his Word found in Scripture. We are to listen to the Word of God in Scripture with humility and gratitude but, above all, with childlike faith that God's Word made flesh is always with us and present in his revealed Word (Ml 28:20). When we listen attentively to God's Word, we find him revealing himself within the Church through its authority to teach and preach God’s Word from Scripture and from the living traditions that are developed continually as the hierarchical members employ their special charisms to instruct the other members of the Church.

ATTENTION TO GOD IN OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

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 bodily level to God's Word speaking to us through others. We seek to praise God for 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 e...

ATTENTIVE PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1991

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 in love to him. Distractions take us away from any intense intimacy with God by preventing us from being attentive in faith, hope, and love. Voluntarily or involuntarily willed by you, distractions are those thoughts, feelings, and reactions that tend to dissipate your attention away from God and, therefore, defeat the prime purpose of prayer which is to lift your mind and heart up to him in loving surrender and adoration. Most of your distractions in prayer will be involuntary. Indeed, as you move away from discursive to contemplative prayer and simply rest in God's loving presence without relying so much on your intellect, imagination, and memory, distractions will come as a plague. When these seem to carry you away from the f...
