The Perennial Philosophy highlighted
the “Great Nest of Being”
which was the universal worldview of humanity
until modernity reared its methuselah head.
Going beyond modernity
since the turn of the millennium has been
a growing awareness of commonality
between religions, and unity of all sciences –
a general visioning of all things as interrelated.
However major dualisms still persist:
heaven vs Earth/spirit vs body/human vs animal/
sacred vs secular – all these dualisms
which falsify life/nature/God
since God works thru both/and polarities
not either/or dualisms – God is in and beyond
Photosynthesis, one of the key factors in life
happened when chlorophyll molecules served everything
by capturing solar energy and converting it into
food and energy for others
3,000,000,000 years ago.
Nature serves us and Law serves us
and so our will delights in Law
but we cannot fulfill all laws
so the Cosmic Christ emerged from within the universe
as Jesus the Christ who lived under the Law
and experienced all our temptations/compulsions
in order to redeem/liberate us from the Law
with the Divine Love that goes beyond Law.
Following Jesus, Christian social action
finds God in politics/work/social programs –
anything that betters human life –
because Christ became human
and every human is another Christ
and we cannot let Christ live
in physical/spiritual squalor –
“As you do to the least, you do to Me”
– Jesus the Unitive Thinker in Matthew 25:40.
