The Heart of Matter: We are in Movement

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

“Teilhard was convinced that the total material universe is in movement toward a greater unified convergence.”

 Ilia Delio’s, The Hours of the Universe


“Teilhard estaba convencido de que la totalidad del universo material camina hacia una mayor convergencia unificada.”

Ilia Delio, The Hours of the Universe

What is being moved? What is being asked?

Check out our new podcast, “Hunger for Wholeness” on Spotify.
Episode 13 was just released with Ilia Delio, Robert Nicastro and Dr. Bruce Damer “What is God?”

This podcast was made possible by a Grant from the Fetzer Institute for which we are very grateful.

    To dance to the rhythm of the nature’s movement.

    I agree with your reasoning Joe, but would like to add that the butler is loved infinitely.

    Can someone explain how Teilhard’s statement about the material universe in convergence, fits with research showing matter in the form of galaxies and their solar systems moving further away from each other rather than converging?

    But so many are fighting materialism because it is not compatible with orthodox spirituality. This leaves many fleeing identification with Church.

    Seems the entire material universe is and has ALREADY been in convergence. What is and sorely needs catching up is the global human awareness of same. We’re the odd-ball species out of synch with the whole; the invasive species that detracts from same, the absence of which would accelerate the healing energy divinity has built into creation from the outset. Simply put, humanity’s probationary period has expired. By and large, “Thy will be done,” hasn’t been. The butler now thinks he’s the master of the house, just because the latter has been away indeterminately. But the butler has a short memory, little or no faith, an indomitable self-referencing will, and a heart rivaling flint in its hardness toward sacred things. In that regard, such fills the Master’s assessment of humankind’s woeful state of affairs preceding his return, “as in the days of Noah.” Following which, you might say, things went less than “swimmingly” for the species.

    Very consoling quotation and belief. I still don’t want to sit on my hands but this gives me confidence to listen to the Universe. Thanks very much, Suzanne
