    AIM MBM74'S JOURNEY OF TRANSCENDENCE AIM MBM74'S JOURNEY OF TRANSCENDENCE Presentation Transcript

    • MBM74’s JOURNEY OF TRANSCENDENCE Based on the Framework of Richard Rohr in his book “Wild Man’s Journey”
    • STAGE OF DESCENT Needs to rest in God’s promises and model the wholeness/holiness for others STAGE OF ASCENT Needs to make and keep promises to grow Doesn’t get it; tries to keep ascending despite the Evidence and the invitation; the shallow fe/male. FE/MALE INITIATION (Early Teens) CRISIS OF LIMITATION (Ages 35-50) SELFIDENTITY Necessary period of idealism. Healthy young wo/man needs to experience her/his own power and possibilities. Necessary egocentrism; not in love with God, but in love with the idea of being in love. Duty, responsibility, hard work delayed gratification, black and white world views. Immature and potentially dangerous righteousness, even though it is earnest and generous. “Sacrifice” instead of “mercy”. ANGRY YOUNG WO/MAN Never gets to experience Her/his own power, goodness Or potential. (In some cases A head start on the Spiritual journey – early initiation – If s/he can see God in it and come To a deep sense of self.) Normally a negative acting out. Appropriate sense of one’s own boundaries; a sense of self adequate to let go of the self: the “grain of wheat that must die or remain just a grain of wheat” (see John 12:24) The mid-life crisis: a time of inner loss of meaning, sometimes accompanied by failure, falling apart and “acting out” to regain power and control. Confrontation with one’s limits, with paradox and mystery – with the cross. Heroic virtues don’t usually work anymore, nor do they always help. Needs humility, honesty. Early movement from self-control to the beginning of God’s control. EMBITTERING JOURNEY Confrontation, but no enlightenment Wounds did not become “sacred” wounds; still looking for something to blame. The negative and cynical wo/man. Needs spiritual guidance because rules no longer work in their old form. Letting go, trust, patience, surrender, holy abandonment, compassion, the dark night of faith; the Abrahamic Journey from what you have to what you don’t have. Finally secure enough to be insecure. Time of painful insights and major surgery. Painfully redefining victory and success; putting on the mind of Christ, the Paschal Mystery. Cannot fake prayer anymore, but must pray to survive. The shadow is not just tolerated, but embraced, forgiven and seen as a gift. The rejected stone becomes the cornerstone (see 1 Peter 2:7). “Mercy” instead of “sacrifice.” HOLY FOOL God’s beloved daughter/son the mellow “grandmother / grandfather” who can hold together the paradoxes because God has done it in him. God is finally in control. Return to simplicity to the garden; Beyond judgments, “reason” and control to wisdom. Being human more important than selfImage, role, power, prestige or possessions. S/he has it all!
