Reign of God

      No Comments on Reign of God

The Reign of God is uncontrived within every person, wondrously present and aware, awakening wisdom to glory in God’s presence, opening to pure stillness through self-emptying.  Healing stillness is in harmony with the uncreated light of wisdom, so gives rise to the union of the mind and the heart in the Name.  The Holy Spirit nurtures this union by imparting… Read more »

Way of Glorification

      No Comments on Way of Glorification

The way of glorification is ineffable in at least two ways, the hallowing way of glorification of God and the sanctifying way of glorification by God.  The greater the glorification of God, the greater the glorification by God, which is the ineffable mystery of mutual, doxological reciprocation.  From the beginning, reciprocation reveals the co-inherence of God and humanity, unfathomable in its… Read more »

The Name: Mirror of God

      No Comments on The Name: Mirror of God

The Name is the mirror of God, opening the heart to uncreated glory.  The Name is the unveiled face of God, revealing God at centre in the midst.  The Name saves, curing confusion and healing division, opening oblivious blindness to the vision of God.  The Spirit reveals Christ who reveals the Father, awakening sinners to Holy Trinity.  God loves holiness… Read more »

Uncreated Light of Glory

      No Comments on Uncreated Light of Glory

The uncreated light of glory is all-pervasive and ever-present, grounding space and time in boundless wisdom.  Since Einstein, time has often been spoken of as a fourth dimension, although this way of speaking is still contested, in which case the step back into wisdom would be the fifth and glory the sixth dimension, oneness the seventh and ineffable openness the eighth, being… Read more »

Beloved Wisdom

      No Comments on Beloved Wisdom

Nothing surpasses timeless union with Beloved Wisdom.  Nothing rivals the supreme wonder of uncreated wisdom.  The transmission of wisdom is the mission of patriarchs and prophets, apostles and elders, the consummation and completion of the verbal incompleteness of Scripture in the saints.   Wisdom enlightens those who turn and see, those who, glorifying God, are glorified by God.  Christ chrismates… Read more »

Saint Sophrony the Hesychast: Dynamic Stillness

Saints Sophrony the Hesychast lived ‘dynamic stillness’ throughout his long life.  He lived on Mount Athos in his younger days, so Athonites call him the Athonite, and in Essex in the last years of his life, so others call him, ‘of Essex.’ both of which accurately describe where he lived his earlier and later life.  He is also called ‘the Hesychast,’… Read more »

Ecstatic Joy

      No Comments on Ecstatic Joy

When awareness unites with presence, ecstatic joy blesses wisdom’s communion with glory on the inside of the Holy of Holies.  This is the wondrous opening of the eye of wisdom in the heart.  Elders point directly to the eye of wisdom, cutting straight through to enlightenment in uncreated light.  Wonder steps back into the translucent clarity of wisdom, emptying awareness… Read more »

Radical Ineffability

      No Comments on Radical Ineffability

The radical ineffability of Orthodox Hesychast wisdom is indefinable, endlessly transcending ecclesiastical and theological sectarianism.  This transcendence is not understood by those who condemn wisdom as heretical.   They think they know what wisdom is and condemn it as Gnosticism, or Montanism, if they are referring to wisdom’s prophecy, or Messalianism, if they are condemning wisdom’s prayer. Hesychast saints remain silent,… Read more »

God’s Reign of glory

      No Comments on God’s Reign of glory

Wisdom cuts through prevarication and removes mountains of resistance, revealing God’s reign of glory with every turn. The saving function of the Name is to reveal God in all dimensions and in all ages without ceasing to unveil glory to wisdom in the timeless presence of the present.  Nothing interrupts glory when wisdom is awake because wisdom is ageless and easily encompasses many… Read more »

Prophecy and Prayer

      No Comments on Prophecy and Prayer

Prophecy reveals timeless well-being overflowing amidst the living heart of prayer, bearing witness to the Gospel of infinite grace in every situation.  Prayer is in love with prophecy and prophecy with prayer, concealed in the Bridal Chamber of the Holy of Holies.  Wisdom’s conjugal union with glory regenerates the Hesychast Tradition in the holiest of holy sanctuaries, awakening the heart as… Read more »
