Heart of Awareness

      No Comments on Heart of Awareness

The heart is purified by turning the light of awareness round to remember God, stepping back to recognise God in the midst.  The remembrance of God opens the eye of the heart to God’s own vision of God through God, restoring the heart to the uncreated light of hallowing wisdom.  Wisdom unites the mind with the heart in primordial, pristine awareness, liberating… Read more »

Song of a Guardian Angel

      No Comments on Song of a Guardian Angel

I am a guardian angel singing my Song, hallowing God’s Name at the heart of awareness, hallowing God’s saints at the heart of his presence.  I am witness to his ‘I’ awareness and ‘AM’ presence as your guardian angel, singing a Song of deifying Oneness in the heart of God.  You are usually too busy to listen, but my Song… Read more »

Eye of the Heart

      No Comments on Eye of the Heart

The Name crowns saints by awakening the eye of the heart, enthroning the glorified heart in the temple of uncreated glory.  Glory crowns saints with God’s Name, fulfilling the mysteries of the temple throne and crown that realise God through recognition and remembrance.  Christ, the Great High Priest, enthrones and crowns his own with the truth of his Name, grafting his own… Read more »

Remembrance of God

      No Comments on Remembrance of God

Shemuel, the angel of the Name, Shem, is not saying: ‘Look at me,’ but ‘Remember God.’  All archangels and angels agree with him, saying, ‘Do not fixate on us, but remember God, for the remembrance of God is holy and hallows all that there is.’  Shemuel’s love of the Holy Name unveils this love to be loving remembrance of God in his Holy… Read more »

Honeycomb, Fish and Stag

      No Comments on Honeycomb, Fish and Stag

Body of Light, body of Glory

Elders in the desert hand on the tradition (paradosis) of the crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and glorification of Christ, in whom the saints are crucified, resurrected, ascended and glorified with Christ in the Spirit, who illumines the heart, praying ‘Abba, Father,’ imparting grace that crucifies, resurrects, ascends and glorifies the saints in Christ.   The sacrament of Baptism empowers grace that… Read more »

Timeless wisdom: transcending yet including time

The Holy Name unveils the uncreated luminous clarity of uncreated deifying awareness in God the Holy Trinity.  Wisdom sees with enlightened awareness the uncreated glory of deifying presence.  For wisdom, it is God’s timeless God-centred glorification of God that is decisive, not our temporal ways and means toward God from without.  It is not that temporal ways and means are… Read more »

Know yourself: Saint Antony on the knowledge of God.

In his Third Letter, Saint Antony tells us, “He who knows himself knows God” (Chitty SLG 1975 pg 11).  He bears witness in the Spirit that all who know themselves know God and glorify God aright, knowing God’s own God-centred knowledge of God which undergirds God’s God-centred glorification of God.  For Antony the Great, desert father of monks and solitaries, it was… Read more »

Cleaving and Resounding

      Comments Off on Cleaving and Resounding

Cleaving to God in his Name releases into resounding union with God through his Name.  The cleaving, devekut, transfigures the human spirit with the deifying resonance of divine life, as it is written,  “But you that did cleave to ‘I AM’ your God, are alive every one of you this day” (Deut 4:4).  Christ transmits the Name ‘I AM,’ as resounding… Read more »
