The Heart of Matter: God is the Wholeness of Reality

Tuesday, September 13, 2022

“God is not an idea but the living wholeness of reality, seen not by the physical eye of the scientist but by the gaze of the mystic, the inner eye of love.” Paul Tillich, Theology of Culture

Excerpt from Ilia Delio’s book, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being

“Dios no es una idea, sino esa totalidad viviente de la realidad que no puede ser vista por el ojo físico del científico, sino solo por la mirada del místico, por el ojo interior del amor”. Paul Tillich, Theology of Culture

Excerpt from Ilia Delio’s book, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being


What is being moved? What is being asked?

    What a description for God: the mystical living wholeness of reality, the inner eye of love.

    The lamp of the body is your eye. When your eye is sound, then your whole body is filled with light, but when it is bad, then your body is in darkness.Lk 11:34
