      No Comments on Metanoia

Metanoia means change of mind that passes beyond, meta, mind, noia, beyond, that is, both conventional mindfulness and mindless dissipation.  Metanoia turns the mind inside out and outside in, reversing self-centred mind-sets so that God-centred wisdom is revealed.  Metanoia unites heavenly glory with earthly awareness, that is the function of wisdom, which, like glory, is uncreated.  Metanoia appears to begin as something created… Read more »

The way of truth is eternal life for seers who see as they are seen, know as they are known, glorified by God through God in God, Holy Trinity revealing wisdom and the way of wisdom, wisdom’s truth and life:  glorification.   But the way was lost among those who read down wisdom to ways and means to acquire it, distancing union and… Read more »

Holy Alchemy

Hallowing the Name transmutes the lead of distraction into the gold of integral recollection in the cauldron of fire and water, where the golden lion and the silvery unicorn are fighting for the crown.  The centre where all centres coincide is everywhere, for it is neither spacial not temporal, but maintains its axial poise always and everywhere.  Distraction de-centres the chuntering mind but… Read more »

God all in all

      No Comments on God all in all

Wisdom beholds God ‘all in all’ with the eye of the heart, but in time God is not yet ‘all in all,’ since it is only in uncreated light of timeless glory that completeness of glory is revealed.  Temporal perception is not yet able to behold completeness but time gives time to turn and see wisdom’s vision is timeless glorification, embracing love’s… Read more »
