Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

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! No one can 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 all our loved ones God's outburst of love in giving to us his only begotten Son. For weeks we plan gifts to give as a symbol of our life-long desire to be a loving, self-giving presence to others. Some think Christmas is for children. Yes, it is truly 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 life (Jn. 3:16). In the past three teachings of IN SCAPE we have been preparing the groundwork for building our prayer-life into a more contemplative mode of relating to the indwelling Trinity, beyond our usual mode ...

JESUS, LOVER OF MANKIND [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

JESUS , LOVER OF MANKIND Religion has always attempted to lift people toward the transcendent God, to prayerful, loving union that strengthens faith to cope with the human situation. Yet in our world today would you not agree with me that the traditional prayer forms no longer seem to help us Christians to meet the living God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Western Christianity has based its prayer forms largely on an exhausted scholastic philosophy and theology concerning us human beings, God, and the material world. A spiritual vision is needed that can break through this Augustinian Platonism, which has accounted so often for an un-Christian separation of God and his creation: nature versus supemature, body and soul in opposition, matter and spirit and the secular versus the sacred. One new vision that is new to most Western Christians, yet much more ancient than the exhausted view so eagerly being discarded in the West is found in both the Old and the New-testaments. It is develop...

UNCREATED ENERGIES OF LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

UNCREATED ENERGIES OF LOVE Early Eastern Christians took Holy Scripture seriously when they prayed to encounter God as their ancestors in the Old and New testaments had. They experienced God touching them profoundly in the unveiling of his uncreated energies of love. "God is love and anyone who lives in love lives in God and God lives in him" (1 Jn. 4:16). These athletes of the desert discovered that if God truly abode in them he did so through all of his energizing love which became perfected as they loved one another (1 Jn. 4:8). Prayer for the early Christians was an active receptivity to God's permeating, energetic love surrounding them at all times in every event, in every creature that entered into their lives. God today is the same as then. His energies are really God himself as Trinity in their loving relationships toward us in each moment of our earthly existence. God's activities can never be separated into those that are sacred and those that are merely secular. The mater...

WE ARE WHOLE PERSONS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

WE ARE WHOLE PERSONS God created us as whole persons. We are not made up of several parts, put together with some invisible glue. In the Bible we are given a vision of ourselves, not in philosophical terms, of a unified, whole person in relationships with fellow human beings, with God, and with the entire created world. St. Paul describes the human person in a process of becoming holy and blameless, "spirit, soul, and body, for the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ" (1 Th. 5:23). When God breathed life into the first man's nostrils and he became a living being (Gn. 2:7), he did not receive a "soul" but became a souled-being. The human person does not possess a body like some sort of a shell, much as Plato viewed the human body, but is an "embodied" being, enfleshed, a whole person possessing bodyness. This does not refer to an object that we possess, but to the whole person in his or her state of transitoriness and in relationship with the rest of the material world. God has placed w...

PRAYER OF THE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

PRAYER OF THE HEART In the Christian East of the early centuries among the hermits of the desert there evolved a type of prayer that became known as the prayer of the heart . The heart is the scriptural symbol for the seat of human life. We are touched in the depths of our personality; all affections, passions, desires, knowledge, and thoughts arise in our heart. It is here that our spirit and God's Spirit meet in loving communion. This is prayer that goes beyond any words, sentiment, images. "Heart speaks to heart" and such prayer leads to listening and mutual self-surrender. St. Theophan the Russian recluse (1815-1894) describes the heart in the language and experience of the desert fathers and mothers: The heart is the innermost man or spirit. Here are located self-awareness, the conscience, the idea of God and of one's complete dependence on him, and all the eternal treasures of the spiritual life... Where is the heart? Where sadness, joy, anger, and other emotions are felt, her...

THE NAME OF JESUS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

THE NAME OF JESUS The Eastern Christians inherited a Jesus-centered spirituality from the New Testament and the desert Syrian Fathers who retained the holistic spirituality of Old Testament Judaism, especially as developed in the writings of Pseudo-Macarius of the 4th century Mesopotamian desert. From this background they learned to combine the name of Jesus with their breathing. St. John Climacus of Sinai in his Ladder of Perfection exhorts Christians: "may the memory of Jesus combine with your breathing, then you will understand the use of silence." In those early centuries it was simply the name of Jesus and the remembrance of his resurrectional presence living within the hearts of Christians that was recited and united with the breath. Gradually, other formulas in the form of Christian mantras were used with great freedom, all in order to obtain the fruit of such prayer, namely, greater oneness with the living, indwelling Jesus Lord. Over the succeeding centuries a gradual fixed...

PRAYING THE NAME OF JESUS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

PRAYING THE NAME OF JESUS We have been made by God to be loved and to give love to God and neighbor in return. In surrendering to another and ultimately to God in unselfish love, we reach the highest stage of communication which we call communion. To reach this oneness with others in love we need to move away from ego-centrism through expanded states of deeper consciousness. The highest consciousness known to us is the state of constant, loving union with God and the entire cosmos. Yet when we look at ourselves and the world around us we see more brokenness than health, more separation and division than unity and love. Dr. Margaret Mead claims that we only discover four percent of our potential while on this earth, though Dr. Herbert Otto claims it might be as high as five percent. Psychiatrist R. D. Laing claims: "We think much less than what there is, and to this precise extent we are much less than what we are."

COMING HOME [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

COMING HOME You and I have always suspected there was someone, our real self, living within us that was always crying to come forth. We have felt the alienation and fragmentation of our various parts, our faculties within us, on our body, soul, spirit levels of relationships. We tend to become discouraged at our low performance, at our having to live on such "low" flats of existence. Yet, we seemingly hear a cry to rise up from eating the "husks of swine" (Lk. 15:16), and return to our true home and to the happy family of loving persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, from whom we have separated ourselves. Psychologists like Abraham Maslow have coined the term "peak experience" to describe the "ecstasy" of standing outside of our habitual level of consciousness in anew experience. You may find moments of pushing beyond the "flats" of ordinary existence through listening to beautiful music, jogging, or in stimulating conversation with dear friends. Hallucinogenic drugs, alcohol, s...

DESERT SPIRITUALITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

DESERT SPIRITUALITY In the fourth century, thousands of men and women were driven by the Holy Spirit into the deserts of Egypt and Syria where they stripped from their lives the excess baggage of distractions on the bodily, psychic, and spiritual levels. They entered into themselves to discover their inner poverty, and in their darkness they discovered the light of the indwelling, risen Christ Jesus. As they confessed their sinfulness and brokenness, they also confessed that Jesus was their Lord and Savior. In a constant state of conversion they attracted the healing, loving presence of God. He lifted them to the highest levels of integration and oneness in consciousness with him and the cosmos as they touched and lived habitually day and night at their true center. In the pits of their sinfulness these early Christians experienced God as infinitely merciful and tenderly loving. Their confession became thanksgiving. Their repentance was full of joy when they knew they were surrounde...

A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD'S PRESENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD'S PRESENCE As they pursued anew level of consciousness they were able to pray incessantly (1 Th. 5:17). This prayer revolved around two main poles: God's revelation of his wonderful condescension to share his divine life with human beings, and the praxis or activity on the part of these Christians to prepare themselves for encounter with God. Can this simple form of rhythmic prayer have any value for us busy Western Christians? As we have seen, it employs basic techniques common to all forms of "transcendental meditation." However, the efficacy of the Jesus Prayer as true Christian prayer lies in the degree of faith, hope, and love that the Holy Spirit constantly infuses into our hearts when God sees our inner poverty of spirit along with our sincere readiness to surrender our lives totally to the guidance of the Lord Jesus. By breathing rhythmically, letting the senses and imagination concentrate on the words of the prayer, you can reach a depth of inner ...

EXERCISE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1993

EXERCISE 1. BODY-RELAXATION Choose a quiet place. Sit in a relaxed position on a straight chair and keep your spinal cord straight without bending or slouching. Close your eyes and begin to breathe consciously, slowly. Relax each member of your body as you surrender to the living trinitarian presence within you. Start releasing any physical tension as you concentrate first on your forehead, your face, your shoulders, arms, elbows, forearms, wrists, fingers. Move to your heart and lung areas, your abdomen, your legs, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, and toes. You are becoming totally relaxed. 2. PSYCHIC-RELAXATION Relax any mental tension by taking an imaginary elevator ride from the 20th floor in a large building down slowly to the basement. Count slowly from 20 down to one to zero. You are inscending within yourself and moving into the darkness of your own power of intellection to come into deeper faith of the pure and radiant light of the risen Jesus within you. 3. SPIRIT-RELA...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: ' ; c : 0 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 1994! Every January presents us with a new beginning, the top of a new year with its twelve months, fifty-two weeks, and 365 days. Each minute and second is a call to greater growth in God’s life and in sharing his happiness and beauty with each other. January fills us with great hope. Life is a journey and we are on the road again! A tune comes to our lips. There is a spring to our walk as we set our eyes on the goal once more. It is great to be alive! With joie de vivre we stretch out open arms to embrace life abundant. Jesus came among us and now pours out his Spirit upon us that we might have that life (Jn. 10:10). To live this coming year more dynamically according to God's eternal plan we need to embrace what Jesus called poverty of spirit (Mt. 5:3). ’’Blessed are the poor in spirit, f...

THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE ANAWIM OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE ANAWIM OF GOD Johannes Metz in his classic, Poverty of Spirit , well describes this scriptural attitude of us human beings toward God and neighbor: ’’Only through poverty of spirit do we draw close to God; only through it does God draw near to us. Poverty of spirit is the meeting place of heaven and earth, the mysterious place where God and we encounter each other, the point where infinite mystery meets concrete existence” (p. 26). God-Trinity has called us from all eternity to enter into a sharing of the Kingdom of God within the innermost sanctuary of our heart, the core of our being where we possess the three divine persons. There we share in God’s love, joy, peace, rest, and fruitfulness. Jesus has given us the promise of the Kingdom of God as that which comes only to those who are poor in spirit. For God's chosen children poverty of spirit is the most basic and fundamental disposition of mind and heart. It is the experience in childlike trust of the love...

MEANING OF ANAWIM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

MEANING OF ANAWIM The word, Anawim, is plural for the Hebrew word, an aw, which originally meant M to be stooped, bowed, lowered, overwhelmed," as Father Gelin points out in his book, The Poor of Yahweh.. From Scripture, Anawim took on a profound significance, essentially embodying the meaning of spirituality as found in both Testaments. Basically, Anawim are persons poor in spirit, the lowly and humble of heart, the true handmaids and servants of the Lord who place their entire trust in God. This is epitomized in the saying of Jesus: The Kingdom of God belongs to those who have hearts as trusting as these little children. And anyone who does not have their kind of faith will never get within the Kingdom's gates. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it. (Lk. 18:16-17)
