Scripture confirms our personal experience of life:
that our private thoughts tend towards
As humans we are a mixture
capable of the greatest good of any saint
and the worst evil of any sinner.
Integrating the shadow is essential to spiritual growth
and involves a lifetime of work.
We experience transcendence of shadow
in our conscience which moves us
beyond our self and its limitations
towards our authentic self and its high ideals.
Spiritual intuition is the foundation of the moral life:
as I intuit Spirit in myself, I intuit it in others
and want to manifest Spirit in the world
as I, We, and even It – the creations of our hands
are full of Spirit.
Four great guides: Teilhard/Panikkar/Merton/Griffiths
agree that Christology involves
not just reflecting on Christ, but “doing Christ”
that is, allowing the mystery of Christ
to transform our lives.
The further evolution of Planet Earth
depends on everyone becoming a “Christic being.”
But we always have a choice:
if we accept God’s call
our life on Earth will be blessed.
But if we refuse God’s call
and choose our secure, egocentric lives over God
God becomes our enemy
and human life on the planet is doomed.
