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 »

Realm of Grace

      No Comments on Realm of Grace

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 of the Cross

The wisdom of the Cross crucifies enmity, communicating boundless love, opening Christ to all, revealing Holy Trinity, sustaining Holy Orthodoxy.  The Church of Christ calls all humanity into wisdom’s embrace of the grace of Christ’s divine humanity, deifying creation with uncreated light.  In the Book of Revelation, the prophet-seer saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, descending in uncreated light of… Read more »

Uncreated Creativity

      No Comments on Uncreated Creativity

The uncreated creativity of Holy Trinity has an infinite imaginative capacity to create anew that co-creates with those whose hearts are unified with uncreated openness. Seers of the Name become saints in the unknowing freedom between known possibilities, liberating the known into unknowing.  The stillness of light is awareness of presence, peaceful and bright in the dreamless clarity of the awakened… Read more »

Wisdom’s Glory of the Name

      No Comments on Wisdom’s Glory of the Name

The ‘I’ of the Holy Name ‘I AM,’  is wisdom and the ‘AM’ of the Name is glory, revealing their primordial union to be the completeness of hallowed communion, unconfused yet inseparable, indivisible yet ineffable.   Glorification of the Name is hallowing joy to Orthodox seers, opening past and future to wisdom’s glory of timeless presence.  The glory of the… Read more »

Reign of Glory

      No Comments on Reign of Glory

The reign of glory transcends the visible powers of this world, because it does not exist among conditioned appearances but is the unapparent ground of them all.  Primordially present, the reign of glory is not subject to confusion or division, but without interruption underlies everything arising within its embrace.  The Holy Name reveals the timeless awareness of presence that unveils… Read more »

Thrice Holy Peace

      No Comments on Thrice Holy Peace

The Father glorifies the Son in the peace of the Holy Spirit, whilst the Spirit glorifies the Son in the peace of the Father and the Son glorifies the Father in the Spirit of ineffable peace.  The Holy Trinity is peace on earth as in heaven, not to be confused with the Peace of Rome, the Pax Romanum, in any of… Read more »

Winged Chariot Throne

      No Comments on Winged Chariot Throne

Martyrs rise on winged chariot thrones, bearing witness to truth in a world that prefers lies it wants to be true, releasing totalitarian stealth back into costly truth. Christ is a haven of peace in the truth of his Name, stilling war by releasing error and terror.  The Spirit never strays from the Truth of Christ, even when Orthodoxy is… Read more »

Spirit of Truth

      No Comments on Spirit of Truth

Awakening in the Spirit of Truth to the Father through Christ opens the heart to glorification of the Father in Christ, imparting glorification in the Spirit to the saints, without which discernment of the truth of glory is not yet revealed.  Elders were once drawn from senior hierarchs as well as unordained monks, discerning the difference between glorification of God and… Read more »

The Ilyinist Parody

      No Comments on The Ilyinist Parody

Ivan Ilyin (1883-1954) said that evil begins where the person begins, inverting the vision of the person that inspired Saint Sophrony the Hesychast, turning Holy Orthodoxy into an ideological gnosticism serving totalitarian Russian nationalism.  Ilyinism sharpened White Russian ideology into Slav Fascism, giving to Mussolini and Hitler the right-wing Hegelianism he thought they needed to oppose Bolshevism, justifying Russian totalitarianism.  A century… Read more »
