Holistic Vision of Thomas Keating 5

In the next several newsletters, I will share quotations and paraphrases from one of my root teachers, Thomas Keating, whose approach is at the heart of RCMR5.

Who initiates good works? In the “Western Model,” it was the self-outside-of-God.

In the “Scriptural Model,” it’s the self-in-God and the Spirit of God in us [who initiates good works].  As Paul says: “You are the temple of the Spirit” who dwells in you as the living and dynamic source of inspiration, who is communicating the gifts by which we can translate the divine will and love into daily activities on a whole range of different activities from prayer to action to service.

And now the emphasis is on listening and responding to the Spirit rather than our own bright ideas and initiation all kinds of projects that we then expect God to back up which he never thought up in the first place. Hence this is extremely important. So now in the context of Scripture recovered since Vatican II, we learn to listen to the Word of God and not try to tell the Word of God, so to speak, what we’re going to do and he darn well better reward us.

In the Scriptural Model, the emphasis is not on the reward of the self, in this life or the next, but on the effort and journey to unite ourselves and to love God here and now, right now, and to serve other in need, and to love our neighbor as ourselves, now. So notice again, the focus is about 180 degrees different…totally opposite, almost, from the other [Western Model].
