How We Imagine Ultimate Reality 3 01-13-2018

Many teachers tell us that the most powerful catalyst for change is the change of our reference point. Our reference point or paradigms determine who we are more than out attitudes or habits.

May we experience a paradigm shift! May we experience the resurrection of the mind! This will create ripples in our relationships and communities, which will have numerous practical applications, such as conflict-mediation, deeper listening, greater honesty, and stamina in the face of messy real world debacles.

May we heal divisions in our hearts and world by absorbing the Gospel on deeper and deeper levels! Through regular Gospel reading, sound mystical theology, and deep forms of prayer may we experience ever-deepening intimacy with God. Through service to the beings who share our planet, including foreigners, “the least of these,” and devastated forests, may we experience ever deepening intimacy with our neighbors. Then the mystic heart of Jesus will beat in our chests and in our communities.

that I may walk in your truth;

give me an undivided heart to

revere your name. (Psalm 86:11)
