Prayer Apartheid (Part Four)

January 15, 2014

Hearing is of the Essence.

If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridal his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world (continued from Part Three).

I wrote in Part Three that to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself spotted from the world is a two-fold message. To visit orphans and widows in their trouble is an understanding in Tribunal Care. This carries with it a plan for salvation beyond man’s ability to demonstrate mercy. Mercy is a God ordained place of Spiritual Understanding. It is Chesed, and this is the worth that one must come into before one can know the Father. It is loving-kindness. It is the way. It is of Christ.

[This] is perpendicular to Light. It supports the weight of the canopy on Love. If one can carry [this], one is born. The orphan is his altar, and the widow his penance (sorrow).

Saint Thomas Aquinas is one who understood Chesed. A troubled saint, but a highly intelligent reasoner, ‘his’ agio is heard as a gecko on the Mel scale. In other words, he is a desert father within the darkness on Light, much like John’s realm of darkness (Teresa of Avila John). Like the gecko, he has a fixed lens within each iris that enlarges in darkness, spiritually speaking, of course, with an inner mechanism that permits his “color”, the color red (red being that of spiritual awareness), to grow and be ferried across the water (Matthew 14. 22-23), which is where you see the arc or rise on the scale. Although Thomas is a maze within a maze, his color found fermentation in the seeds of Aristotle and Caravaggio (will explain). It could be argued that both are saints. Aristotle for his obvious gift of reason (and no, I do not believe everything written about these), and Caravaggio for his gift of poignancy. One can look at the ART and determine its worth in a way that will help one understand the sainthood of a literary being. This could be true of Thomas Merton. If you are waiting for miracles whereby man can be easily deceived, then the Angels might say: we envy what humanity wastes, or, we envy what man wastes of humanity.

“… his color found fermentation in the seeds of …” It is understood that Aquinas was highly influenced by Aristotle, but how did he find fermentation in the seeds of Caravaggio? These are the best of challenges in the Sacrament of Reason! But let me first ask you: Is this not communing with the saints? Is Spirit Art not speaking to us through the walls of time? Yes, the walls, for man built a wall around these that others might never see the greater story! The back story. The real story. The story on Truth. In the beginning was the Word …  Now, if Caravaggio is saint, would it not be possible then that his Angel was spiritual messenger or guide to both Aristotle and Aquinas? Angels are of Generations. God’s Angels are the perfecting Recyclers within Reason. Where Aristotle fell short, Aquinas followed through, and where Aquinas fell short, Caravaggio followed through, because all fall short of the glory of God. Look at the wee story of Tobias on his journey to Sarah. The Angel was with him, along with his dog. What was ‘his dog’? His Spiritual Vision; his Spirit Gift. Geez, I wonder what happened to the imagination, creativity and poetry in Understanding … but then along comes Thomas Merton, singing at the top of his lungs how in Love he is. Could he, too, be of this Generation? Absolutely.



Peace and Love.
