      No Comments on Faith

Faith trusts in God, seeing as God sees, knowing as God knows, recollecting God through God, recognising God in God, remembering God as God remembers God in Holy Trinity.  Sometimes, faith is called ‘blind faith’ because faith does not see as we see, visually perceiving something, or know as we know, empirically experiencing something knowable, but this way of speaking does… Read more »

Respectful Recognition

      No Comments on Respectful Recognition

Pure attention is spontaneous when recognition awakens with respectful recognition. Straining and stressing strive to attain this, but respect re-spects it through wisdom, and recognition re-cognises it through glory, awakening respectful recognition.  The receptivity of the moon hallows the earth, welcoming the blazing activity of the sun, symbol of hallowing heaven, conjoining heaven and earth.  The spiritual alchemy of wisdom lies… Read more »

Mystical Theology

      No Comments on Mystical Theology

Mystical Theology, for Hesychast Wisdom, is theological theophany, opening deification, called the angelic estate, to integral wisdom.  The sciences of the soul find their fulfilment in theophany as do the sciences of humanity, because the fulfilment of humankind is cosmic as well as divine-human.  Cosmotheandric theophany is truly integral in its insight into cosmic dimensions of divine-human love, agape, unselfish love that,… Read more »

Self-emptying Love

      No Comments on Self-emptying Love

Glorification lives from self-emptying love, but when self-realisation is weak, self-emptying may descend into psychotic disintegration.   Casualties of psychotic dislocation may occur in souls who by-pass psychological integration with unintegrated self-emptying, in which case spiritual integration must include psychological with spiritual realisation.  Elders normally stand back when Christ awakens in the heart, but there is no avoiding withdrawal of psychological projections in healthy spiritual… Read more »

Liminal Realms

      No Comments on Liminal Realms

Liminal realms of uncreated creativity may appear marginal from an institutional point of view, but wisdom loves liminality which centres in God rather than institutional structures.  Axial centredness is God-centred, because what appears peripheral from the standpoint of conventional conformity, may in fact be the axis of centred wisdom, the centre-point of integral glorification.  Uncreated creativity unites the uncreated with creation… Read more »
