Resurrected Creation

Sunday, 2 January 2022 at 21:09

St Maximus on Dr John Dunn. Saint Maximus’ words in his Centuries on Theology and Economy (1.66): He who is initiated into the inexpressible power of the Resurrection apprehends the purpose for which God first established everything.

Resurrected Creation

We experience a relationship of sorts to the Logos at the very inception of thought.

The Logos is the flaming light, endowed with creative power. This light of fire is continuously extinguished in reflected consciousness. Reflected thought, ‘fallen thought’, has opposed the Logos.

The point is that here, where it is not yet reflected and it has its intuitive moment, it moves as the light of the Logos.

The logical consequence of this is that we must grasp the light before it flickers out.

The secret to healing the human being lies in perceiving the light of fire, of which thought pre-reflectedly burns.

Grasp the moment of thought’s inception and we can be re-born into the light of the Logos.

I am moving towards a position that sees the Creation as the Resurrection and vice versa.

From the moment the Logos incarnated and defeated death, we have had the possibility to think according to the Resurrection, insofar as the flaming light of the Logos lights up within each thought that we think. But to perceive this light, we must overcome the darkness of reflected thought.

Happy New Year.

Saturday, 1 January 2022 at 22:09

Cover on Dr John Dunn. Just a short but important message this evening:

Happy New Year.

2021was a year of experimentation, both in the field of writing, where I continued to strive for original ideas in the philosophical and political spheres, and also in YouTubing, where, with cheap equipment I served something of an apprenticeship.

2022 will be a year of fulfilment - that is my goal anyway. I hope to collect my scattered musings into another book, whilst at the same time adding two of my previous works to Kindle, in a quest for a new and wider audience. As far as YouTubing goes, well I’ll just try to move beyond the apprenticeship stage, and hope that I find a few kindred spirits as viewers.

Once more, Happy New Year to you all.
