Holistic Vision of Thomas Keating

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

Prior to Vatican II, the general sense or environment in which religious education was communicated seems to have been more of a philosophical model stemming from Descartes, with his dualistic view of reality and reinforced by Newtonian physics with its idea of God out there managing the world from a distance, and its corollary, that those who wanted to be united to God would have to climb an infinite number of stairs in order to get to wherever heaven was.

In other words, heaven was identified as a kind of geographic location, somewhere out there someplace. Nobody knew where it was. and so its access was difficult, even in a space ship. We might call this model of Christian education, the “Western Model,” which was characterized by the self-outside-of-God and God-outside-of-the-self. [Thomas Keating goes on to say that this great chasm or gap is what centering prayer attempts to bridge]

Manifesting God by Thomas Keating

“The Monk Manual was born out of a personal need. You see, I’m not naturally very good at living in the present moment or trusting the process of life. I needed a tool to help me, a system that could make living with peaceful being and purposeful doing just a little bit easier.”
