Ineffable Completeness

      No Comments on Ineffable Completeness

God unveils ineffable completeness through Christ in the Spirit, embracing temporal incompleteness with the glory of timeless completeness.  If Holy Trinity is ineffable completeness, from whence came the fall?   Was the original sin God’s fall from completeness into incompleteness, evil, suffering and death, as Ivan Ilyin taught?   Or was the original fall from glory the fall of angels and… Read more »

Metanoia and Theoria

      No Comments on Metanoia and Theoria

The cultivation of metanoia, turning, upholds theoria, seeing, which awakens the eye of the heart to wisdom, initiating seers into healing glory.  Theosis, deification, begins when metanoia turns awareness round and centres in God in the heart, seeing God, through God in God, Holy Trinity.  Vision of God, theoria, is not visual perception or imaginative visualisation but pure awareness of uncreated, originating presence,… Read more »

God reigns serenely in the realm of grace indwelling the heart, free of the constraints of worldly ideology and imperialist mythology, guaranteeing the Orthodox wholeness of the body of Christ.  Kleptocratic criminality is infectious as it drags patriarchs and bishops into collusion with worldly powers, but the realm of grace remains Orthodox, being Christ’s restorative gift to saints, who offer themselves… Read more »

Wisdom abides in the glory of infinite openness which is the mind of Christ in which the Spirit abides.  The Spirit does not waver from the mind of Christ, or dither between dualities but centres  where Christ is perfect freedom.  The glory of Christ is expansive openness, free from confusion and division, dissolving confusion into union, healing division with communion….

Love of Wisdom

      No Comments on Love of Wisdom

Love of wisdom liberates the uncreated energies of glory with freedom, hallowing the Name with every breath, inspiring every action and reaction with unrestricted freedom.  Stillness permeates inspired action because in glorification, it is the Spirit who is truly active, deifying the body whose actions do not then merely react with material conditioning.  Wisdom is unfettered and free of confusion, undivided by worldly… Read more »
