I am reading Thielhard de Chardin. It’s very slow going. He must be studied and pondered, not just read. He opens strange doorways with his notion of the "cosmic Christ" and our "organic union" with that body. It may all be too much for me to assimilate. I have more difficulty than some commentators do in rationalizing the pantheistic nature of it all, and I do not quite understand where resurrection and salvation fit in if I am but a cell in the body of Christ - the universe. Of course, I have a great deal more to read and perhaps more insights will be provided.
I’m enthralled with the many ways people devise to think about You, and I’m a bit puckish about the veracity of many of them. Our natures are so flawed, why do we want to confuse ourselves, without surety, with so many theories about the nature of God. But we do! And we know we’ll never know. It’s almost silly. But what does it show? There is a basic hunger for God in our flawed selves and it gnaws at us with the persistence of the hound of heaven. To want to know, and to try to know is not silly!
